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.

"I wanted to thank you for all you did in helping us sell our condo. You were our saving grace in a nightmare situation! Thank you so much!"

  -Katie & Andrew S., Client

"Working with Karin to buy our first home could not have been better. Navigating the crazy housing market in Austin as a first time buyer can be daunting. Karin has two sides, one is a caring and understanding friend when guiding you through the process, the other is a serious business woman who will go into the ring and fight for you when it comes down to getting the deal done! She stayed up until close to midnight wrapping up the paper work to get our first offer in. In Austin you rarely get the first home you put an offer in on, but we did."

  -Ben K., Client

"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

"Karin is an outstanding realtor. Her attention to her clients needs is impeccable and she is not afraid to fight for their best interests. She is patient and diligent and is always available to answer questions. I cannot recommend her enough, she’s amazing!! (Buyer)"
