Kathy exceeded all of my expectations, making the home search process easy and enjoyable. She quickly assessed my needs and found communities that hit every mark. Throughout the negotiation and contracting process, I sat back and watched her work her magic. Every step of the way she had my best interest at heart and zealously represented me! Additionally, she went above and beyond to ensure my transition from home buyer to homeowner was successful. I'm truly grateful to have had her as an agent!

Kathy was so generous with her time and energy. We are grateful to have met her and to have worked with her. In our home buying process, we always felt supported, never pressured. Quite frankly, she knows how to work for her clients.
Our kids have fallen in love with Kathy. She is always personable and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. We know that Kathy will be a part of our personal and professional lives for many years to come. Thank you, Kathy!

How do I begin talking about Kathy... from the first time we meet it was such a great feeling of welcoming and assistance that Kathy brought to the table. As the search for homes went along, I never had a doubt in my mind that Kathy would be willing to go above and beyond to make sure that I was seeing and getting exactly what I was looking for. Overall, Kathy was such a kind and helpful person. Very accommodating and flexible with her schedule.

An out of state move can be tricky. However, with Kathy in our corner, the transition from San Jose, CA to Austin has been truly memorable. We are so fortunate to have Kathy as our realtor. Mrs. De La Cruz is professional, knowledgeable, and detailed oriented
April Mouton
Wonderful experience. I was very comfortable with her through the whole process
John Campbell
Kathy was more than helpful for my family and I. She was very patient with us since we are first time homebuyers. She's very personable and down to earth. She can help you in many ways for a home, and she also takes your family's interests into account. ???  Nothing but good things to say about Kathy.

Professional, Tough, Knowledgeable, and so much more. Kathy was a blessing to have had in our corner. 
My Wife wanted someone very knowledgeable of modern homes and I wanted someone who was tough at the negotiating table. We definitely hit the jackpot. Kathy was able to patiently find the exact home that was best for our Family. But not only that, she was able to masterfully negotiate a price we could afford. 
Kathy is a beautiful person inside and out!  Thanks!!
Daniel Rodriguez
Kathy helped my husband and I purchase our first home in Austin, TX. It was a new build so we had a lot of questions, and she had all the answers. We were also planning a wedding and planned to move in 2 weeks prior to the wedding. It was quite stressful, but she eased my mind at every opportunity.  She came to every appointment and talked us through everything. We were very inexperienced, so she explained the mortgage process and how to pay it off quicker and the best options for our financial situation.  She was the perfect piece of mind.  I definitely recommend her because of her experience, thoroughness, and dependability.  We wouldn't have been able to do it without her.
Je T'aime Fisher
Kathy was a great help with my Mom closing on her home.  She walked her through the process and was always there when any questions arose (and there were many).  So glad Kathy was here for my Mother’s journey to homeownership.   Thank you so much Kathy :)
Osie Martin
Kathy is an amazing woman. She is genuine and really cares about what her clients need and want. She is constantly on top of things and makes the whole home buying process stress free. I really enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone in need of help with their real estate needs. 
Sharmee Tigner
Kathy was amazing! She was patient and worked hard to find us the perfect home. She listened to our needs, was honest with us, and would recommend her to anyone.

Vicki Leonard
I have worked with Kathy De La Cruz as an agent on multiple home buys and have always been very happy with her.  She is honest about expectations and price setting.  She was extremely helpful in getting the home cleaned and staged for show.  Kathy went the distance for me and my spouse with each project.  We would be more than willing to use her again in the future.

Kathy De La Cruz is a fabulous realtor who is a well-qualified professional. My family discovered that she is mega-experienced in real estate and has a high-level of integrity. I really like Kathy and have had a wonderful experience with her as our realtor and family friend. She is very knowledgeable about Austin and the surrounding areas. Kathy is also dedicated to community service and shares our community, since she and her family live "just down the street" here in south Austin. 
Kathy De La Cruz has a relaxed professional style and spends lots of time just learning about exactly what type of home or property we were looking for - all in our own home. It is fabulous that Kathy understands that it takes time, time and more time to make important decisions about making an investment and purchasing property. We were glad that she is not a high pressure “sales person."
When we were looking for our home, we did not run, run, run around - she selected what we were interested in by invested time to send oodles of links for us to check online, continued to ask: what did you like about this property? and if you were to rank these three homes, which one did you like best? We appreciated that Kathy made appointments to see just the properties we selected and created a plan to make us comfortable along the way! 
I have kept in touch with Kathy over the past two years after she helped my family the purchase of our Austin residence and investment properties in south Austin. It is always a pleasure when she calls and stops by my home with updates about our property values or news about events in our community.  I had no idea that I was going to grow to love this city and our community! Kathy seems to pull out all the stops when it comes to ensuring families enjoy Austin and the surrounding areas. Kathy is great to assist by sharing community information, networking to help us find a reliable landscape service and being a helpful advocate to assist with review of our new property.
When I spoke to Kathy today, she said she has taken on a part-time realtor, Penny Payne, who specializes in assisting people with physical limitations. In addition, Kathy is always seeking new ways to reach out to new Austin residents to help them comfortably settle into our Texas community.
Without hesitation, I recommend Kathy and her associates to assist my friends and neighbors with all requests for real estate information in the Austin and larger surrounding areas, even north to Lago Vista or south to Dripping Spring and Wimberley. 
Gail Chanpong
Kathy made the difference in our family's home buying experience. Kathy listened to what our home buying criteria were and worked diligently to find us options. From start to finish Kathy was professional, accessible, and knowledgeable. Kathy went the distance for my wife and I, even going as far as purchasing porch furniture and backyard lighting as a new house warming gift. We would certainly recommend Kathy De La Cruz to anyone wanting to find a new home in the Austin metropolis and surrounding areas!
Jerard and Alana
Kathy works her butt off for you. She cares, she listens, she knows how to handle tough and awkward decisions. She sold our house 15% above our aspiration price and in 2 weeks. You can't beat that!

Kathy De La Cruz was a dream to work with! She is kind, hardworking, patient and great at her job! Kathy works tirelessly to inform and stand behind her clients to ensure that we are getting the very best for our budget. Kathy is responsive, efficient and well-researched on all the areas her clients need when looking for a new home. Thank you, Kathy for all your hard work. We highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Amanda (Realtor.com)
Kathy helped my family and I find and purchase a new home in Austin, TX. She was extremely helpful, patient, and knowledgable in making sure we found what fit our needs and budget. She was very responsive on the phone and in person and would always get back to us promptly with whatever question or ask we would have. This was our first property here in town and she explained the process very well and helped us feel at ease about making a large purchase. I definitely recommend her if you ever need any real estate help! Thanks again Kathy! 
G-Su (Realtor.com)
Best realtor you can contact. She listens to your needs and is very helpful all the time. She fights for her clients all the way to the end. We had issues with the seller not doing certain repairs and even on the day of closing Kathy was still negotiating. Highly recommend.
Mr. DP (Realtor.com)
We had the pleasure to get to know Kathy 6 years ago when she helped us purchase our very first home. Recently she helped us sell our home and helped us through the process of building our very first home. We are extremely happy with our new built home and we are very grateful that we had Kathy by our side for every step of the selling and buying process. Kathy's caring heart, her dependable commitments to meet us at our appointments, her attention to take care of her clients, and her willingness to educate her clients are some of her strongest strengths that have contributed to our love of working with her over the years. We not only consider Kathy our realtor for life, we also consider her a friend for life!!!

To whom it may concern, We are pleased to recommend Kathy De La Cruz to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. After 17 years living comfortable in our first home in Austin, Texas, we decided to put in on the market. We needed to sell it in order to move on and search for our dream home, with a large yard, enough rooms and other nice features for family and friends. We found Kathy to be a highly attentive and responsive agent, as if we were her only customers. She is greatly personable with an engaging personality. Kathy had an initial meeting with us, asked many questions and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs as well as our budgetary circumstances. We had several meetings. We never felt neglected or unimportant despite our many questions and doubts. nShe returned all phone calls and emails the same day. Kathy was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our home to attract buyers quickly, and her advice worked like a charm. A master with the contract negotiations, Kathy came up with a deal that was good for us and made the buyer happy as well. As we wanted to buy the ideal home, Kathy engaged in the buying process as well. nShe is very talented and makes excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best school districts. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. nShe knows Austin very well. There is nothing that escapes Kathy's attention when it comes to properties for sale in this area. Kathy was fully engaged on the buying process and made sure that we got what we expected for the price we paid. Her attention to details was key before and after the closing and the move. n nWe have seen other realtors in action. In our opinion Kathy is indubitably the best in the business. If we ever need to move again, the First Lady of Real State will be our first choice in real estate agents. Thank you Kathy!

It is my pleasure to Endorse Kathy De La Cruz!! She is a fantastic Realtor! Very knowledgeable and works tirelessly for her clients. Whether you are a 1st time home buyer or a seasoned Investor, Kathy is the Realtor for you! I highly recommend her!! You are in good hands!! :)
Byron T (Realtor.com)
Best realtor ever! Kathy took a very difficult process and made it as easy and smooth as possible for us first-time home buyers. She was always easy to get a hold of and held our hands every step of the way. We would definitely recommend Kathy for anyone looking to buy a home in the Austin area!
George G (Realtor.com)
To say Kathy made buying our first new build possible is a complete understatement. Her knowledge, expertise, and guidance through the long, stressful, and at times incredibly frustrating process are second to none. Her optimism and dependability never wavered over the six-month process (although she has actually been patient with us for years as we tested the housing market on several different occasions). She's as sweet and friendly as they come, but don't be mistaken- when it comes down to needing firm representation with a builder, Kathy has no problem stepping up and being that advocate for you and your family. We are honored and privileged to have Kathy as not only our realtor but as our friend. You cannot go wrong with Kathy in your corner!
Ty (Realtor.com)
My experience with Kathy was amazing. Kathy sold our home & found us a new one. She was professional, reliable & very informative. Everything went very smooth. Kathy treated us like family. Today we are 1 month in our new home.
Peter L (Realtor.com)
Kathy is very knowledgeable, courteous, and generous !! She knows what is needed to sell a house as well as helping us buy one! She made the buying and selling of our house look very easy! Thanks for all you did for us Kathy ! 
Danni D (Realtor.com)
Kathy helped us purchase the home we just sold and did an outstanding job with helping us sell our house! She responded to text and phone calls as well as emails in a timely manner.             Thank you Kathy!

Kathy was absolutely amazing and very accommodating. My move to Austin was a job relocation and I had no knowledge of the Austin area. My 94-year-old mother lives with me and we traveled to Austin house hunting. Kathy had the insight to know we had very little time to find a place and needed to move quickly based on my schedule. She secured a friend to stay with my mom in the hotel while we toured and viewed many homes. I would have never thought of this but it made all the difference in the world. Kathy listened and clearly understood my needs to accommodate my mom and I.  Needless to say we found a place and put a contract down.  I would highly recommend Kathy, she goes above and beyond and stands out above the rest. You will not be disappointed she is one of the best.
