About Us

simplifying real estate

one property at a time

Our story begins in beautiful Austin, Texas…

After many years in the industry, our founder and principal real estate broker, Kari King, decided it was time to create a different type of real estate office. One where the client experience is at the forefront of operations and creating an environment where agents provide the best possible service every time is routine.

There is no better investment than one made in a happy client.

Elite Agents was established with the idea that the real estate agent you work with, whether it’s for buying or selling a home, has a tremendous impact on the quality of your experience. A great real estate agent should get to know you and take the time to understand what you’re looking for and what matters most to you. They should never hesitate to answer your questions or address any concerns that arise during the sales process, and they should always act in your best interest. Not only because you deserve professional, friendly, and contentious service, but because it’s the right thing to do.
