Karin Chappell


For years real estate has been a passion as well as a family business. Let me put that passion, enthusiasm and experience to work for you.

Raising two boys, now college graduates, and having taught in Austin Independent School District, I understand the importance of researching the schools, neighborhoods and amenities to best suit your needs.

I know the area. Born and raised in Texas, I have lived in the Austin and Central Texas area for over 30 years.

I understand and appreciate the stress and thrill of selling your home and will work diligently with you from start to finish making the process as exciting and painless as possible.

Know that I am committed to providing excellent customer service throughout our relationship.

"Karin has made moving 1700 miles away, to a state I never been in a breeze. With extensive knowledge of the area, documentation, tips and tricks, and honest options she treated my home purchase as If she had to make it for her own family. If you are looking for a realtor in the Austin, TX area, there is no one better! (Buyer)"

"Thank you so much for all your assistance in closing, selling & marketing the home (no specifically in that order). You made it stress free and I appreciate that so much!"

  -Mary C., Client

"We found Karin through my sister who recommended her highly when we were moving to Austin. I thought she was excellent at helping find the right home for us and she always went the extra mile. Now I would recommend her highly to anyone buying or selling in the area. We love her and you will too! "

  -Angie W., Client

"We are moving to the greater Austin area from Wisconsin. We didn't use a realtor when we bought our first home, so I always assumed we didn't need one. Karin has completely changed the way I view the home buying process. I can honestly say that we could not have gone through this process without her. Karin has been extremely involved every step of the way from doing the leg work for us ahead of time, to shuttling us around when we flew in, informing us of nuances only present in TX homes, teaching us about neighborhoods, and even taking care of the house until we move! We trusted Karin to help us buy a house 1,200 miles away, and I am so thankful that we did!"
