Kristee Leonard's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Kristee Leonard

    • Kristee and Sheree helped us find our house and walked us through the buying process. We're first time home buyers and had a lot of questions and Kristee was very informative and always quick in replying back to us. She kept us organized and on scheduled and gave us very honest opinions. Would definitely recommend Kristee and Sheree to anyone looking for a realtor.

      - B. Pham
    • We found Kristee Leonard through social media reviews. After meeting her, hands down we were convinced she was the person to get our home sold. Kristee is very professional and conducts herself with integrity. She guides you through the entire process and keeps you well informed about the marketing strategy and activities. Kristee's biggest attribute is her work ethic. She takes the time to listen, is proactive, detailed oriented and always follows up in a timely manner. Kristee is definitely an advocate for her clients and is a true professional. We would recommend her to anyone. Five star rating!

      - A. Mark
    • Kristee helped our family find a rental until we knew where we wanted to live. Not only did she have less than a week to find us the rental, she took the time to explain everything in full detail, the price that we wanted, the school that we wanted, all while we lived in another state. When our lease was up, we called her to find us a house, and she did with everything we wanted and more. She will always have us as clients. We also referred some friends to Kristee as they also were thrilled with her knowledge of Austin as she found them their perfect home too.

      - C. Komatz
    • Kristee was amazing in helping me competitively price and sell my previous house. She has an impressive and comprehensive marketing system that brought in a great offer before we'd even had an open house. I always knew where we were in the process, and she responds to communications so quickly that I sometimes wondered if she ever sleeps. When it came to finding my new home, I wouldn't have wanted to navigate the competitive Austin market without her. We found the home exactly where we wanted, at the price we're thrilled with. I can't recommend Kristee enough!

      - S. Schuhmacher
    • Kristee Leonard is an outstanding realtor in every aspect. She helped me with lot selection and the building of a home in Kyle, Tx. Her responsiveness is lightning fast and her attention to detail is incredible. Throughout the entire process I felt so well taken care of in every way possible. An added bonus with Kristee is that she is a lovely person!

      - K. Carter
    • Kristee was a huge help in buying our house. She was always on the go between finding us listings, getting us in to see homes, negotiating and making sure our process went as smoothly as possible. At times Kristee worked harder for me than I did. I wouldn't even think about buying another home (or selling my new home) without her.

      - M. Anselmo
    • Kristee is very attentive to her clients needs. We were from out of town and need to relocate very quickly. She worked around the clock to find us a place (and I mean that she would be emailing at all times of the night). Her knowledge with with process was top of the line transitioning us to a smooth close getting us into a very nice house in one of the toughest housing markets in the country within two month. I would highly recommend her.

      - C. Ditto
    • I can't say enough good things about Kristee Leonard and the Leaders Realty. My family has been working with them since 2010 and have now bought two places and sold one with Kristee. She operates to the highest level of professionalism and takes great interest in her clients. Although I know she is extremely busy with multiple listings and clients, she always takes the time to make you feel like you are her only client at the time. Kristee makes you feel like family and we have no doubt that we will work with her again when the time comes.

      - J. Simon
    • Kristee was our saving grace when we purchased our home a few years ago. Despite the rushed purchasing situation that is the Austin housing market, Kristee was able to find a house meeting all of our criteria (fixer upper, not recently renovated, centrally located, fixed max price) and providing us the perfect opportunity for a remodel in the neighborhood we wanted. Her negotiation skills and attention to detail with both the seller and the lender earned us a better price and mortgage rate than we could have ever received without her help. We would (and do) recommend her to everyone!

      - E. Structure
    • Using Kristee Leonard is the best thing we have ever done, she should be voted #1 in Austin.......she is very responsive and hands on she... will guide and be by your side from the first time you meet her to the closing....she will fight for you to get the best deal, all the time being polite, but forceful...she is always looking out for her clients. Choosing Kristee...you have a partner by your side day or night and a good professional, like Kristee are hard to find.

      - C. Copeland
    • I may have purchased 2 properties in my life before, but it wasn't until I met Kristee when I truly understood the benefit of a good agent. She is incredibly professional, hard working, patient and honest, with your best interest at heart at all times who will guide you through every step of the process. I hold Kristee in very high esteem and I recommend her to everyone I know!

      - S. Toth
    • Simply put, we could not have bought our house without Kristee's help. She was there every step of the way, and all hours of the day and night. Without her expertise and her eagle eye checking every detail over and over, the inspectors, the lender, the seller, and the title company would have made mistakes. She kept everything and everyone in line and on schedule. But most of all, Kristee is super smart, super sweet, and a real pleasure to do business with. I consider her a God Send.

      - G. Garza
    • Kristee helped us purchase our first home, we had very little knowledge of the process, but everything went seamlessly under her direction. I never worried that any deadlines would be mossed, details would be overlooked, or opportunities would be missed. She responded to our countless texts and emails promptly, provided details and explanations around every step of the process, and generally took excellent care of us. I would work with her again in a heartbeat, but she helped us find such a perfect home, I don't foresee needing her services again for a long time = )

      - B. Michalopoulos
    • Kristee was incredible to work with. I have never met anyone so detailed and responsive. We have worked with many realtor's and this by far surpassed all of our past experiences!!

      - B. Waters
    • It has been a great experience working with Kristee, she has provided a professional & superior level of service and knowledge. She has been extremely responsive, provided solid guidance and was very easy to work with. She understands the complexities of each transaction and how to work with both sides and keep her cool. She will dig in and support your stance with solid market data throughout negotiations. My property was a complex transaction and in a difficult market that took many months to sell and she supported me the whole way, I recommend Kristee for both buyer's an seller's, you will be in good hands!

      - P. Abendschein
    • I could not be more happy in my experience working with Kristee. As a first time homebuyer she very graciously navigated me throughout the entire experience and made it as painless as possible. Kristee listened and sought after exactly what I was looking for and we found a place much quicker than expected. It was evident throughout the process that she was always working in my best interest and fought for every dollar in my favor throughout the negotiation and closing process. Highly recommend!

      - Edgar B.
    • Kristee was recommended to us by a friend who she helped 2 years ago. The friend had nothing but positive things to say about their first time home buying process with Kristee, so we gave her a call. Right away she was super attentive, and answered emails and phone calls immediately. As soon as we told her what we were looking for, the listings started coming in. Every time we changed our mind about something (South Austin, new build, back up to Round Rock), Kristee didn't bat an eye and she kept on searching. When it came to making offers and giving advice to us first time home buyers, so was beyond helpful. She took so much stress off of our shoulders, we really couldn't imagine working with anyone else! She made it so much easier than we thought it was going to be. Her recommendation for a lender was spot on, as well- he was just as attentive as she was. We weren't sure what to expect with the home buying process, from the crazy Austin market, to the paper work, and anything else along the way, but Kristee made the whole thing easy and enjoyable. We will be recommending her to all of our friends and family members!

      - A. Miller
    • Kristee was very hard working and responsive, great experience! We found the right home quickly and she helped me stay on track of important dates to make sure we closed on time.

      - J. Goulding
    • Kristee is the best! There's not a single question or concern I had during my buying process that she wasn't prepared for. She was always on top of everything and went far above and beyond what I really thought she needed to. We looked at a LOT of houses before we found one we liked and she was patient and never pushy to get anything done that we didn't feel great about. I can't thank her enough for making the process as easy as it was and I would highly recommend her for anyone buying or selling their home. I will definitely be using The Leaders Realty when the time comes again without hesitation.

      - A. Carter
    • Kristee is just amazing - I recommend her highly and rarely recommend anyone. Selling a house, moving to another state, working full time, raising a family - all pretty stressful stuff. Thanks to Kristee, selling the house, wasn't stressful at all. I knew from day 1 that she had me covered and she never let me down. Her advice and guidance were always spot on. Her attention to details and questions saved me money on the sale of my house. Her kind words and thoughtfulness to me was just above beyond. I am so grateful for your presence in my life, Kristee. I am positive I wouldn't have made it through it all without you.

      - M. Johnson
    • Kristee Leonard is a phenomenal real estate agent! She makes herself available to her clients at all times & keeps everyone completely informed of the details in the real estate process as it progresses. She definitely went above and beyond what is expected & I will definitely be using her for my future real estate needs!

      - A. Proctor
    • Kristee is very knowledgable and professional. She went above and beyond our expectations! She made what could have been a very stressful experience into a fun and successful one. We ended up getting our perfect house in a very competitive Austin real estate market.

      - J. Moore
    • Sheree is AMAZING!!! She made us feel like we were her only clients even though she's a leading realtor in ATX. She told us exactly what we needed to do to prep our home to sell it quickly. We have a unique property (aka: harder to sell), but within a couple weeks of listing, we had multiple offers! She's helped us buy a perfect home too and made sure we got a great deal! There aren't enough stars to describe how incredible our experience has been!

      - L. Champion
    • Kristee is absolutely fabulous and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase! From our first meeting Kristee was extremely engaged and responsive in helping to make a very stressful process feel easy. I appreciate the hard work and dedication that was put into every detail from negotiations, inspections all the way through the close. Thank you Kristee for helping me purchase my first home. :)

      - M. Condon
    • Kristee has helped us three times since we moved to Austin and Is a blessing to work with! She knows the market here and found us what we wanted in with the first showings. She sold our homes in the perfect timing and is a joy to all she meets!

      - A. Patterson
    • Kristee went above and beyond for us For months, she went to see countless homes with us, and through it all she was cheerful. She kept us motivated even when we were outbid several times. The market in Austin is fierce and Kristee is definetly on top of her game. Anytime we had a question, she responded immediately. My husband and I have the most amazing first home together, thanks to Kristee. She was there every step of the way, explaining everything and is truly a wonderful person to top it off. Our offers were strong and she was the perfect relator for us to work with to make this move happen. Kristee Leonard is fabulous and sharp as a tack. I cannot sing her praises enough, you would be lucky to have such a great person to be on your team!

      - J. Lisman
    • Kristee and Leaders Realty were wonderful!! My partner and I came into the home buying process with no background at all and she was very patient and knowledgeable to guide us through the whole process. She did an excellent job negotiating on our offer and we were able to close on our dream home in 30 days! Kristee was always super prompt to respond to any inquiries or questions we had and made the whole process unbelievably smooth, easy, and friendly. We really cannot say enough good things about our experience!

      - N. Ladha
    • Kristee is an amazing, intelligent, professional woman. We loved working with her from start to finish. There's a TON of weight lifted off your shoulder with her on your team. Highly recommend.

      - S. Stuetelberg
    • Kristee is a true professional and market expert. She truly cares about her clients needs and is readily available for advice. I have worked with her twice to lease my house and have been extremely satisfied with her work ethic. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional realtor.

      - M. Reding
    • Kristee is a great real estate broker! I have worked with 30+ agents, and she is one of the best. Always on top of things and great communication. I would recommend her to anyone in the Austin area

      - J. Murr
    • No matter if you are buying a used home or building one, you need a realtor to help you with the process. Kristee was the best every step of the way. We ended up building a house in Rough Hollow- Lakeway and she was at every appointment making sure what was told to us was in writing and also helped with the negotiations with the builder. Even after close she is a wealth of knowledge and has stayed in contact to make sure everything was still good. She is the only person I will use for our next home purchases. Thank you Kristee

      - R. Stuetelberg
    • Kristee is AMAZING! We looked at numerous condos in the Central/South Austin area over a span of about two years off and on. Kristee was always patient with us and incredibly knowledgeable about the properties we saw. When we finally did settle on a new build, she was there for all of our questions and to push along the builders when they weren't responsive. I highly recommend Kristee for anyone looking to buy or sell!

      - J. Skinner
    • Kristee was very reliable and accurate when it came to the advice she provided us. In fact, when she discussed the good and bad sides of all scenarios, one of the relatively "bad" scenarios occurred. But thankfully we were well prepared to handle that scenario, and we owe that preparedness all to Kristee's expertise. Likewise, Kristee was very patient with us since this was our first time selling a home AND first time buying a lived-in home. Given our hectic schedules, Kristee was always reachable by phone or email. Kristee also never made us feel rushed when it came to making a decision and always made sure we understood each possible outcome/choice. Kristee made us feel like her number one clients, even though we knew she makes all her clients feel this way, considering how successful her business is.

      - M. Galaviz
    • Kristee has been more than thorough, prepared, organized, and followed up on each aspect of the process. She has also been kind and clearly has a servant heart. We recommend her whole heartedly.

      - L. Petrik
    • I have used Kristee both to buy my home and list it. She is a full service realtor who works hard to make her clients happy. She will forever have my business in the Austin area!

      - A. Dozier
    • Kristee was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout our home buy/selling process. She was always available to answer any questions we had. Kristee not only was helping us with the process but she was constantly was communicating with every other party to ensure that deadlines were met and documents received. Her level of professionalism and work ethic is unmatched. If you ever need help buy or selling a property your first and last call should be to Kristee.

      - J. Medlock
    • Kristee has helped us purchase our current home and also 4.5 acres of land. Both experiences with her were outstanding. I have never seen anyone work so hard to satisfy her clients. She is always available and goes above and beyond what you would expect from a realtor. I would recommend her to anyone.

      - K. Kingsbury
    • First and foremost; I highly recommend Kristee. For context, my family and I are new to the Austin area and we did not even know where to begin. Kristee was a referral from co-worker. Throughout the entire process I never questioned her dedication to helping my family and I find the right home. She constantly went above and beyond normal expectations. She was responsive, detail oriented and most off all genuinely cared about bringing value to the process. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt Kristee has the best interest of her clients at heart and that is why I cannot recommend her highly enough.

      - A. Yoder
    • Kristee helped me purchase my new home and was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. No matter what my questions were, she was always available and always happy to help. Although I don't plan on buying another home, Kristee would be the only person I'd want helping me!

      - Jackie P.
    • I had interviewed several agents; and I have never regretted that I hired Kristee. She was very detailed and catered to my needs, especially I was not in town most of the time to take care of the updates of the house. She was very responsive and was always on top of every and communication. She was very knowledgeable of the market and gave me very valid suggestions. I got 3 above-the-asking price offers on the first day of MLS listing. From contingency to closing period, she followed all the tasks carefully and confidently. I am very pleased that she helped me to sell my house so quickly. I would definitely use her again if I have t sell more houses.

      - R. Chen
    • I really can't say enough about Kristee! She was amazing! My husband and I are first time home buyers. Kristee was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She went above and beyond all of our expectations. She made the entire process easy and enjoyable. She was excellent at communicating and explaining everything to us. She followed up with every party from the Leander, builder, seller ect the entire time. We were able to close quickly and confidently because of her. Look no further... Kristee is truly the best at what she does and is so professional and a true joy to work with!

      - E. Dudley
    • Our house was on the market over 6 months, and in a desirable section of town, yet no offers or significant interest. We then listed with Kristee and she got under contract within the first 2 months. She was very professional and knowledgeable. Even under stressful deadlines at closing, she kept her composure. Our roof had gotten damaged in a hail storm and the work was delayed by the continued rain. The roof ended up being completed the day before closing but Kristee helped guide us through everything. We highly recommend her!

      - B. Chmelik
    • Kristee is absolutely amazing at what she does and we couldn't have been happier. She understands the market, gave us great guidance and helped us find a great home. She was meticulous and stayed on top of everything. Her communication was fantastic too - kept us informed at every step along the way. And best of all, she really cared about our needs. We definitely benefited from all of her connections in the area. We would highly recommend Kristee to anyone!

      - V. Delaney
    • Kristee made it so easy to shop for a home. Whenever I asked to see a certain home, she made it possible that same day! She is always in a happy mood and made looking for a home enjoyable rather than stressful. Whenever I had a question and emailed her, she would answer promptly. I wouldn't ever use anyone else, and always reccomend Kristee.

      - M. Salmeron
    • Kristee is the best of the best. She was very patient with us since we are new to the Austin area. She provided valuable advise all throughout the home buying process and was very professional, knowledgeable and just a great all round person to work with. We will definitely be working with her again and would recommend her to our friends and family.

      - A. Mills
    • I've bought and sold several houses and worked with more than a dozen real estate agents in 7 states. Kristee is by far the best I've worked with. She's no-nonsense, and will give it to me straight. She doesn't just tell me what I want to hear or what will make a sale. She gives me honest information, often at the expense of closing a sale for herself. I emailed over a dozen top agents in the Austin area inquiring about 7 cap properties. Only 3 agents personally responded to me. The others all had their assistants reach out to me. Kristee was the only person who told me 7% cap rate in Austin was unrealistic while ALL the other agents and/or their assistants tried to get my business and told me there were plenty of 7 cap properties in Austin. After a more thorough research, I found the best values to be in the Round Rock, but even good foreclosure cap rates were 5.5%. Kristee was right. 7 cap was not happening in Austin. Clearly, Kristee was the only one I could trust. Whenever there was a house I was interested in, she really took the time to look at all the comps in the area, the condition and features of the house, and gave me honest opinions of whether or not it would be a good investment. Even if you're not buying a house to rent out, you're still investing in real estate (your own house), and there's no one else I'd trust more with my investment money than Kristee. Besides the trust factor, she also impressed me with her knowledge and experience with the local market. Her predictions were always right. Whenever she told me a house was priced right and was going to move fast, that house would have an offer in the next couple of days. The houses she thought were overpriced are still sitting on the market. She knows exactly what price would make a house sell. She also answers my emails at all hours of the morning and night. I wish she could represent me in Lubbock, NY, and FL!

      - O. Zhang
    • We have had an excellent experience with Kristee. There aren't many transactions in life more important than selling or buying a home and you must have a great deal of trust that your Realtor knows the market, is motivated, is available, is well networked, is prompt, is organized, and most importantly, has your best interests as a priority. In my experience, that can be a very a difficult combination to find but we definitely found that in Kristee. I can without question state that you will be exceptionally happy working with Kristee Leonard.

      - C. Spencer
    • Kristee was an amazing broker! She was very flexible with meeting us to tour homes and always available by email and phone. As first-time homebuyers, Kristee was there every step of the way to explain the process, what to look for, things to consider, and even review paperwork from our lender. We couldn't have asked for a better broker.

      - L. Robertson
    • Kristee helped us by our first home in Austin and I could not have asked for a better experience. She was knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, etc., all of the things you would hope for in a realtor but the most valuable things for us were that she provided peace of mind and was extremely responsive. From a peace of mind standpoint, she was patient and walked us through all of the odd financial quarks that come with buying a home. She helped us find a great lender and throughout the process we felt like we knew what was going on and we had a team taking care of us. From a responsiveness standpoint, she can't be matched. In Austin homes go on and off the market in a matter of hours. If your realtor isn't working 24/7 then you're going to be at a disadvantage. Within 2 hours of our house going on the market, Kristee met us at the house, helped us put in an offer while we were standing there, and had it accepted the next morning. On top of that, she helped us find a lender that shared the same qualities so everyone moved fast to help us get our house. I can't imagine we would have locked down our amazing house with anyone else. On top of all that, Kristee has been helpful with any questions or issues we had after the purchase which only supports the fact that she was truly watching out for us and wanted us to have the best home buying experience possible.

      - W. Lawrence
    • We have used Kristee Leonard to purchase 2 homes and she also listed and sold another home for us. She is the hardest working realtor in Austin. She is available 24/7 - leaves her self little to no room for a personal life in order to accommodate her clients' every need.

      - K. Kemnitz
