About MeKristen Jacobs, REALTOR® ABR, CNE, GRI

Helping people is my passion. With a professional background in counseling and in education, I bring to real estate many skills that help facilitate smooth, successful transactions for my clients. I understand that buying and selling a home is more than just a transaction; it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on my clients’ behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals. I am a skilled negotiator and have earned my Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation.

Originally from Southern California, I have called Austin my home for a decade. Having personally experienced the challenges with relocating , I can help to facilitate the transition for buyers looking to move to Austin from out of the area. As a former Austin Independent School District teacher, I am a great resource about the Austin area schools. I remain active in my son’s school with the PTA and volunteer with The Capital Area Food Bank. In my free time, I enjoy ZUMBA dancing, yoga, reading, cooking, nature walks, music, and spending time with friends and family. I am now a proud Austinite and am thankful for the opportunities I have to explore and learn about the different communities in this vivacious city. While I specialize in the South and Southwest Austin housing markets where I live, I have worked all over the greater Austin area and welcome the opportunity to help you regardless of where you live.

As a people helper, I enjoy the many relationships I have formed with clients over the past several years as a Realtor as I have served as their confidant and ally to help make their real estate dreams a reality. HERE is what others are saying about their experience working with me.
