Hear from my Clients

Patty Johns at Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty went above and beyond in creating an educational and smooth home buying process. My girlfriend and I just recently purchased our first home, and as first time home buyers we needed someone to guide us through the process. Patty was a perfect fit – she has been in the industry for years and knows the Austin home market inside and out. At the start of our home buying process, Patty made sure we had all of the resources, tools and knowledge we needed every step of the way. She offered guidance and jumped in to answer questions at all hours, and still offers her help and advice to this day. She makes sure you check all of the necessary boxes step by step to ensure an on time successful close – and to ensure all of your wishes are met. Even the sales consultant at the development we purchased our home in mentioned that Patty was much more involved than the other realtors he has worked with. To put it simply, Patty gets stuff done. She has her client’s best interest at heart because this really is her passion and she uses that passion to deliver an excellent experience to her clients. Not only did Patty provide an extremely educational and lovely home buying experience, but she makes sure to create genuine, lasting relationships with her clients even after the closing documents are signed. We can’t thank Patty enough for a wonderful first home buying experience and her continued support.

Matt & Niki

Patty couldn’t have made the buying process any more painless or comfortable. I was a first time buyer, and within two weeks of finding the house, Patty had me in the house. When I got nervous about the process, she talked me through it and did not pressure me, whatsoever. I would recommend Patty to anyone.

David Parrish

I am happy to recommend Patty Johns to any prospective Seller or Buyer. She was professional, enthusiastic and patient in handling the sale of my property during the protracted period of the listing. She also handled a lease of the property while it was off the sale market and the tenant was very satisfactory. This was a difficult property to sell during this market downturn and her advice during the period, together with her tireless efforts, finally produced a buyer. I would be happy to refer friends and family to Patty in the future.

Bill Fitzgerald

As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I needed a lot of guidance and advice throughout the entire process. Patty took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. She was on our team and looked out for our best interest. She was totally accessible and showed houses to us on a moment’s notice – which was essential in such a seller’s market. We ended up getting exactly what we wanted. If we ever move from where we are, we’ll use Patty to help us sell the house too.

Lisa and Tony Davis

We want to share our experience with Patty Johns, our realtor who just helped us purchase our dream home and sell our previous dream home. We had been thinking of renovating our house on Aggie for some time, but the cost and inconvenience of renovations kept us from committing. Then we had decided to look around for ideas about renovating. Patty showed us some houses and then invited Brian to go to a Wednesday open house that we later learned was only for agents and brokers. Patty didn’t hesitate and she and Brian toured the amazing house on Fiset that is now ours. Without her tenacity, we probably would have been beaten out on the deal. She then turned right around and used the same tenacity to quickly help us show and sell Will’s house. It has been a whirlwind but we could not have done it without Patty.

Brian Thompson

It’s hard to express in words what a wonderful, competent realtor we discovered in Patty Johns.  After many years as a long-distance landlord, we decided to sell our investment property in central Austin.  It was a complicated sale because the house was occupied by tenants and under contract with a property management company.  Patty handled every challenge and hurdle seamlessly, not to mention with grace and style.  She not only knows the ins and outs of the real estate business, she is a savvy negotiator and a complete joy to work with.  Our house sold quickly and Patty was able to secure a top-dollar sales price.  She works extremely hard and maintains a standard of ethical behavior not often seen in today’s world.  If you want the best, look no further than Patty Johns!  

Anna Dematatis

Patty is simply the hardest working Realtor that I have ever met. She was incredibly helpful in helping my family in our relocation to the Austin area. She is knowledgeable about the area and worked tirelessly to find a home that met our demanding needs. She paid close attention to our input and kept us informed at every step of the home finding and closing process. She always made us feel like we were her most important client. I have worked with several realtors in the past and cannot think of one that I would recommend with half the confidence I recommend her.

Maria and Morgan Stewart

We just wanted to write to thank you again for making the experience of selling our house effortless. We were so glad you were recommended to us. Both of us were immediately impressed with the amount of homework you did to familiarize yourself with the houses in our neighborhood. Your suggestion on how much to sell our house was “right on” and probably the main reason it sold so quickly. You were a hard worker and we loved your attention to detail. Guess that’s why your logo and slogan fits you so well. We have passed your name on to our friends and former neighbors and hope they will contact you when they get ready to move.

Jil and Ken Tunks

Thank you for everything. To say you’ve been helpful would be an understatement. I’m sure there are not many Real Estate Brokers who would spend hours on the phone with me explaining a PLAT or a survey, or hours driving me around to look at properties.  I really appreciate your kindness and attention and for not giving up on me.  Thank you, Patty!

Jessica Calvello

Patty, I just want to thank you for all you have done for us with the sale of my Dad and Mom’s home.  We are truly grateful for your hard work and professionalism throughout this whole process. If anyone were to ask me, I would be happy to offer you my enthusiastic endorsement.  Thanks again,

Jeff Stinson

I started out unsure of what I wanted, where I wanted to be, and totally intimidated by the process. You have been just absolutely perfect at every step of the way, and I can’t thank you enough. Without your help, I’d still be in my rental, hemming and hawing about my options. I don’t like to think about how long that could have gone on ( years. years and years).

Drew Edge

Patty Johns was a great real estate agent. We were first-time home buyers and didn’t know a lot about the process.  Before we started looking for a house, we had a meeting where she gave us a great packet of information, went over what to expect throughout the process, and started working on the first steps.  Throughout the process, Patty was always extremely responsive, and always there when we needed her.  She was great at talking to people and negotiating contracts.  We bought during a seller’s market, and Patty’s help was indispensable.  We had to make several offers before being accepted.  She always let us know her honest opinion and helped us make decisions, but always found out what we wanted before she acted. She helped us every step of the way and came to the closing in case we had last minute questions or problems.  Patty is a great person to work with and a true Austinite- very personable, while maintaining professionalism

Lisa and Simon Peña

As administrator for my sister’s estate, I was in charge of selling our childhood home in Austin, Texas. This was an extremely difficult process, both emotionally and logistically. My surviving sister and I both live in Houston, Texas. We listed the home with a realtor, and the listing sat for six months. When the six month contract expired, my sister and I went to Austin and interviewed 6 new realtors in one day. Thank goodness, Patty Johns was one of those agents. Patty was compassionate and helpful in her “tips to sell quickly.” Patty has a real eye for detail and we asked for complete honesty, Patty delivered both. We walked through the house, room by room, and Patty gave us suggestions on small things we could do to make the house more appealing to buyers. Our home sold and closed within six weeks at the full asking price! Patty was always easy to contact, prompt in her response time and highly accommodating during our entire sales experience. She kept our time and our pocketbook at the top of her list. This is particularly critical when you are selling a home from long distance. I highly recommend Patty as the BEST realtor in the Austin area!

Nancie Leigh Chafin Craft

While searching for a condominium for my son to live in Austin, Patty offered us the greatest help that we were hoping for. She was always available to answer our questions, to show homes on short notice, and to accommodate our ever changing needs. Patty guided us throughout the home search process, assisted in the home selection, and was a great asset in ensuring a smooth closing. She certainly went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we were satisfied with the property after my son moved in. My family found dealing with Patty a great pleasure and we recommend her for your housing needs in Austin.

Ahmad Zamer

I have bought and sold forty-four properties in the Austin area in the last thirty years. I have dealt with numerous real estate agents and their companies. Patty Johns with RE/MAX Austin Skyline REALTORS is the best real estate agent I have ever used for a real estate transaction. She is thorough, and follows up on all her work. All I had to do was provide her with the necessary information and she handled all the details. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent without any reservations. Please contact me if you need additional information. It will be my pleasure.

Mike Harris

My wife Jenni and I would like to express our sincere appreciation of all you did in helping us find our new home. As first time homebuyers, the home buying experience can seem very daunting. There were many things we didn’t know in the beginning. Lucky for us, recently one of my couple friends had used you as their realtor in finding their new home. They recommended you whole heartedly to us. After hearing about all of their frustration and heartache with other realtors before they found you, I knew that we would be in good hands having you as our realtor. In retrospect, our home buying experience was really very easy. All of our friends and family are still amazed that we had a contract on our new home in less than two weeks of initially meeting with you! We were literally at the airport f lying out on a week’s vacation when we got the good news that our contract had been accepted. Having to do the inspection process long distance would seem to be a negative thing, but you coordinated everything with excellence, which made it very easy for us to do long distance. Throughout the entire process, we took comfort knowing that you were our representative and were looking out for our best interests. The experience and talent you bring to the table are invaluable. Thanks for always keeping us updated and in touch with the rapidly developing steps in our home buying process. Thank you for all that you did to make sure that the process went smoothly. We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends looking for a house. You and your team of professionals that you choose to work with are truly first class!

Jenni and John Michael White

It was such a pleasure to work with Patty Johns. Patty was wonderful to work with as we prepared to sell our home. Patty’s professionalism and extensive real estate experience was exceptional. She was always available to guides us and answer any questions we had. Her approach to selling our home could have not been easier. She provided us with many recommendations on how to stage our house (such as maintaining an organized and clutter free kitchen to clearing things off the f loor in our closets) which really helped with the process. She was always prepared for meetings and she did not waste any time placing our house on the market. I am excited to say we received multiple offers (above our asking price) on the first day our house was on the market. It sold shortly after that!

Dolores and Cal Smith

Patty helped me buy my first home, when I knew absolutely nothing about the process. Five years later, she helped me sell that home and buy another. She referred me to a reliable and caring lender who made it possible for me to get a new loan before I’d paid off the first. She made it all happen in the timeframe I needed it to happen in. You can count on Patty to negotiate well for you, pay close attention to detail, and manage the entire process so that things get done fast. She’s my realtor... I’ll use her for my next home sale and purchase!

Karen Kephart

With new jobs and a baby on the way, we decided that it was time to buy our first house. Patty was there with us at every step. She took the time to explain the home buying process and was always available to answer our questions. She also went out of her way to work around our sometimes hectic schedules. Patty grew up in Austin and is very knowledgeable about the area. We felt comfortable with her from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She is a great realtor and a great person. We highly recommend her

Autumn and Jason Scott

Thank you so much for your excellent job of advising us and arranging the sale of our home at 6904 Twin Crest Drive in Austin. We could not have been more pleased with the process. You helped so much to make the procedure painless. Everything went so very smoothly. All this was especially appreciated since we were in the process of moving out of town as the house went on the market. We were so happy that the home was sold so quickly after being listed, and for the best price we could have hoped for. It seems the house was matched up with the right people, and we liked that. It had been our home for a long time, and it is good to feel that it will be lived in and enjoyed. We were very impressed with your interest and efficiency in selling our home, and we will certainly recommend your services to our friends and neighbors. Your knowledge of the Austin real estate market and especially our neighborhood certainly helped to arrange and expedite the sale. We are truly grateful for your friendly service throughout this transaction. We can’t say enough to express our appreciation.

Norma and Joe Banta

Thank you so much for all your help with my house! It’s been great getting to know you, and I hope we get to work together again in the future. I will certainly be telling the world how wonderful you are!! My closing was a blast! Really, you and Martha made it so much fun! My move was easy, and I absolutely LOVE my new home! Thanks for helping make everything work in terms of my timeline. You were a life saver! Thank you again, and keep in touch!

Alison O’Reilly

Patty Johns took the time to figure out what types of homes fit our lifestyle. We have a very busy schedule and she did all of the homework for us. Patty made it easy for us as she would send us emails with home descriptions and if we liked, she set up the appointment. She would plan our schedule to look at homes when it was convenient for us. Once we found our dream home, she continued her hard work and dedication in making sure we were comfortable with our decision. We couldn’t be happier with our home and our agent!

Charles Attal and Amy Corbin

Patty Johns, was patient and kind enough to work with my husband, two children and I on the purchase of our first home. She was not only proactive and responsive to our search, but also had our best interest at heart. My husband is not shall we say, the easiest of client’s as he can be quite demanding at times, but Patty took it all in stride remaining calm and professional through every twist and turn. Being new to Austin, we had quite a learning curve and she was able to walk us through each obstacle and challenge. I cannot imagine having gone through this purchase with another agent. You cannot go wrong with Patty.

Mistine and Sean O’Connor

Patty was a tremendous assistance to us. As first-time home buyers, we had no idea what to expect and we will be forever grateful for her knowledge, experience, and constant guidance throughout the process. She was our third partner when my husband Stephen and I were ready to purchase our dream home. Patty was always friendly and eager to answer our questions and held our hands during what some people say can be a stressful time. She became more than a partner, she became our friend. We were lucky to have her on our side.

Mary and Stephen Watson

Patty Johns from Realty Austin provided us with the most outstanding and absolutely exceptional assistance/help/service that we have ever received from a realtor...and we have had many! From the beginning to the end of the process of selling our house, she had a ‘can-do’ positive attitude about what needed to be done to prepare our house to be put on the market. We live overseas and needed to sell and close on our house in Austin in one month. We were looking for a realtor that specialized in Central Austin, who worked in a large real estate office and who was an award winning realtor. Patty is all those things and more! She did not hesitate to take on the challenge of our time frame. She is extremely knowledgeable in every and all aspects of the selling process, from what buyers are looking for in terms of decor, to how to price the house ‘right’ to sell the house quickly. Anything and everything she suggested to us worked out beautifully and to our advantage!! We sold our house in TWO days at FULL price!!! She negotiated the contract with finesse and again, always with our best interests in mind. We highly recommend Patty Johns! She is really remarkable in the way she gets the job done in the best interest of her client! We think it would be hard to find a more outstanding realtor. Potential clients will be very, very thrilled to work with Patty. We certainly were.

Patty & Chris Young

I can’t thank Patty enough for assisting me with the purchase of my condo. She worked so hard to help me close on a place in only six weeks! I don’t recommend doing that, but Patty made it all happen, and made it easy for me! I really appreciate that she went over the home buying process during our first meeting. She told me in that meeting that she works for me and is going to do everything possible to look after my interests and get me the best deal. She absolutely did that. I am so impressed that she took the time to make sure all my questions (and her questions!) were answered by the seller. She got me a great deal on my condo, and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t recommend Patty highly enough! She’s professional, friendly, and does what she says she’s going to do in a timely manner.

Sarah Cronin

Where do I begin? First off, Patty is absolutely amazing! With all of the bumps in the roads that we came across she handled every situation like a pro. I’m sure we wouldn’t be here today without her. Patty has great skill reading personalities and moods and knowing when and how to act to diffuse tempers and emotional breakdowns. She is also not quick to judge knowing that mistakes happen and that we must move on. That was very tough for me since I’m quite impatient. I want to thank Patty for all of her time and hard work. We appreciate all of the time you have spent looking, making offers, and rescinding all of those past offers. Oh, and Patty sold our home within thirty days! Patty has become a huge part of our lives and it’s going to be a big shock not talking to her all of the time. Patty is real and truthful. She’s the best!

Rebecca, Mike & Maggi

Patty develops a relationship with her clients. She is caring, attentive and provided valuable information and guidance. I appreciate the way she explained things to my elderly father and made the experience of selling the home that he had lived in the last 48 years a pleasant experience. I don’t honestly think there could have been anyone else who could have handled the situation so well. She truly is an asset to Realty Austin and we will recommend her to others.

Dianne Robertson

Patty Johns was fantastic to work with, and did an amazing job listing and selling my home. Patty put together a strategy that helped us achieve over our expected sales price. She was a strong negotiator and went the extra mile to ensure the appraisers and underwriters had what they needed for an expedited close. I would highly recommend Patty and will use her again.

Jeff Hopkins

Patty Johns is one of the best agents I have ever dealt with. Good thing too because I’m in Australia and the time change makes things tricky. Patty is available nights when necessary and that’s been very helpful. I’d recommend her to anyone as long as she still has time for me!

Joe Naples III

My husband and I met Patty Johns in 2003. Since then, she sent us informative postcards each month. So, when we decided to sell my mother-in-law’s property, Patty was our first choice. Throughout the process, Patty kept us informed on the activity and made the process easy.
