Word on the Street

Kevin has been great. From the beginning, in early January, he has made himself available whenever we wanted to see a house, had answers related to buying and selling, and when we needed help understanding the ins and outs of dealing with the purchase of a HUD foreclosure. We could not have pulled all of this off without his experience and knowledge. My wife Malinda and I feel very lucky to have worked with Kevin throughout this process, and we would definitely recommend him to friends and family looking to buy or sell a house in the Austin area. We are going to miss him when all of this is over.

We were moving from Wisconsin to Texas and were looking to buy our first home. We were referred to a realtor who basically expected us to do all the research and we fired her. Kevin McCarthy from Realty Austin sent me an email while in Wisconsin to present himself and I reached out to him to see if he could step in. By nine o'clock the next morning, he was at our hotel. We went to his office, sat in the conference room and went through the MLS together. He knew the neighborhoods. He understood we were there for a couple of days and showed us as many houses as possible. The houses he took us to were perfect! Kevin looked out for our best interest and explained the process throughly. As a result, we bought our house and we love the area.

Kevin went above and beyond what we ever expected. My brother and I began the process nearly a year and a half ago and Kevin was more than patient during the entire process. We were selling our mother's home who passed away very suddenly due to breast cancer and Kevin was more than patient and understanding during our extremely difficult time when we had no motivation to move forward. Kevin advised us on repairs and renovations to do to get the best price for the property, and, to our surprised, got all the work done with minimal inconvenience to us. His experience and expertise helped us navigate multiple offers and helped us negotiate with the buyer to our satisfaction. In addition, he had our backs during a difficult closing process and took steps to make us feel comfortable and treated fairly. I'm not sure what we would have done without Kevin on our side the past 15 months...he made an incredibly painful experience easier to get through.

Kevin McCarthy helped my husband and I find our home. He showed patience and understanding in answering all our questions as first time home buyers. He took our criteria and gave us the option to receive daily, new listings in the area and price range we were set on. He was also always available every time we asked to look at a properties, even accommodating us on short notice. And that lead us to find a house we loved. :) Once we found a house, he helped us through the inspection and repairs process, negotiations, and closing. It could not have felt smoother or easier. The whole time we felt informed and involved, without feeling rushed or pressured. We absolutely recommend going with Kevin at Realty Austin!

This was the second time we reached out to Kevin to help us, and we absolutely love him! He is so intelligent, has great input, explains everything to us along the way and is an all-around nice guy. We honestly could not have had a better Realtor helping us. We will recommend him to anyone looking for real estate services for sure and we will definitely use his services in the future ourselves.

Absolutely professional and very knowledgeable. Great experience.


Kevin McCarthy is an amazing Realtor. We moved from out of the country and he was basically our contact for everything in the USA. He supported us during every step of the process and went above and beyond the call of duty. We love him!

Kevin is a great Realtor and we would definitely recommend him! We were new to the area and he helped us every step of the way from finding the right neighborhood, to finding the right home, and even helping us after the purchase to make sure all our needs were met. Kevin is very knowledgeable, goes the extra mile, and we couldn't be happier with him as our Realtor.

My husband and I highly recommend Kevin for your real estate agent! He was super patient with us and helped us find our beautiful home. Kevin is a very professional person and goes the extra mile to help. Thanks, Kevin!

I used Kevin to both sell my house and buy my new one. Kevin is incredibly knowledgeable and sensible and will truly assist you along the way. We had 3 Realtors come out and advise on what they believed we needed to do on our house to sell it- Kevin provided reasonable ways to fix up the house and still make it look incredible! He assists with photos, staging, repairs, you name it, he'll help you! I highly recommend Kevin and intend to use him in the future for any realty needs!

We have used Kevin for the last 3 homes we have purchased and 2 homes we have sold. He has always guided us in the right direction and the process has been very easy with him. I'd recommend him for anyone!

Kevin has clearly exceeded my expectations. He showed me what repairs needed to be made and knew which contractors to call. If my husband and I had questions, he could answer them. He saw the underlying potential of our rather nightmarish house and helped us turn it into something we could be proud to market. Then he located a home that met my criteria and made me take a second look. After he researched the comparable homes in the neighborhood, he successfully submitted a bid that was much lower than what the sellers were asking. And here we are nine days from closing on a beautiful home. When that house has served its purpose, I expect to call Kevin and tell him we are ready to move on to the next dream. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody.
