Kevin Wilhelm is an absolutely fantastic real estate agent! His service far exceeded our expectations. His greatest asset is his ability to really listen to what you say, and make your search a more efficient process. Kevin really analyzes the pros and cons of each decision with you. Kevin was also so adept at keeping us positive, and maintained a calm, and great attitude throughout negotiations with other parties. He was the perfect agent for us, and we are so lucky he had time to represent us.

I'm not a usual on-line reviewer but had to write a review for Kevin Wilhelm at Realty Austin. My husband and I were interested in selling our house in Shady Hollow Feb 2012 and were recommended Kevin by my boss who had just sold her house with Kevin a year ago. My boss and her husband raved about Kevin and we decided to go with him. Well, now I have to rave about Kevin!
The whole house buying/selling process is stressful enough but having a competent and professional Realtor minimizes the stress. Kevin Wilhelm is the realtor for you if you want to reduce a lot of the unnecessary stress!
Kevin by far exceeded our expectations with his professionalism, his knowledge, his dedication to the job, and most of all, he's a great all around guy. Oh and I almost forgot the best part....our house was under contract in 1 day! (Kevin has a magic touch when it comes to houses) Kevin had even set up previews for our house prior to it being on the market which helped get the buzz going. He's definitely well connected in the real estate market.
Recently I asked my boss how she had heard of Kevin and come to find out, one of her friends had recommended Kevin as he had sold their house (it was a house that had been previously listed by someone else and had been on the market forever. Kevin took it and got it sold!) I think that speaks for itself.

Kevin Wilhelm is one of the best Realtors I ever worked with. He takes care of you so much that he does not like to move forward to any agreement until I really felt comfortable. He brings up potential problems which you may not even be aware of. I felt very secure through out the process, and yes I was able to make the closing date on time.
Kevin was incredible! Kevin’s expertise, thoughtfulness and extremely fast response times helped my fiancé and I close on the perfect home. He could not have done a better job. I have since recommended him to work with family members in the market. Bravo!
Five enthusiastic stars! Kevin Wilhelm went above and beyond to help me sell my home!
He was an awesome negotiator and extremely professional. His marketing plan was the best I saw among the four different realtors I spoke with, and the Realty Austin website has without doubt the best real estate search engine out there.
The proof in the pudding? I got a contract in two weeks and closed in six. Thank you, Kevin, and thank you, Realty Austin!
I met Kevin Wilhelm about eleven months ago when I was given his name thru a referral. I thought at the time he was "just another realtor". The first thing Kevin asked me to do was "stage my house". I had lived there for 24 years and really didn't think it needed any so-called "staging". I did what he advised and within one week my house was sold. That week I became a "stage" believer and realized Kevin knew his trade very well.
He found the condo for me where I am living now. Just recently he sold another house for me, again, within a week. Kevin was personable, trustworthy and someone I considered more of a friend. He always kept me informed of the selling process and answered any questions I had.
I would recommend Kevin and will do so to friends and family in the future. I just wish I had another house for Kevin to sell. He does such an awesome job!
I am writing this letter to express how pleased we were with Kevin Wilhelm and all of the hard work and effort that he put into our sale. It was comforting to know that he was always there looking out for our best interests. Kevin is a courteous, friendly, and detailed oriented professional that did an amazing job in assisting my wife and I to sell our home.
There are many Realtors out there, but very few that are as experienced as Kevin in navigating the complexities that are involved in the sale of a home. We feel that he remained encouraged about the situation, where many other Realtors would have given up. At every turn, he went the extra mile to ensure that we had all of the information required to make an appropriate decision, and on many occasions he proactively stepped in to manage situations we were unable to due to our physical location.
His willingness to provide an honest opinion of the situation was refreshing and provided further evidence of his desire to ensure a positive outcome for us. Kevin is aggressive and does everything he says he will do, openly & honestly. We were very happy with Kevin’s service. He went well out of his way to assist us in every facet of the sales process and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent."
We can’t say enough great things about Kevin Wilhelm at Realty Austin! He helped my fiancée and I with every step while purchasing our first home together. Not only was Kevin patient and efficient in every step of the process, but he also pointed out things during walk throughs to my fiancée and I that we might have overlooked being first time home buyers. He was friendly, patient and accommodating during the process. Kevin was always quick to follow up and check in during the home search process with both of us. Also, you can tell Kevin cares about his clients and gets to know them during the home search and will help his clients find the perfect home for them.
We love our new home and would not have found it without the help of Kevin. He not only met, but exceeded our expectations and we will continue to recommend Kevin to friends and family because we know he will do an upstanding job, as he did with us. We will defiantly use him in the future. Thanks Kevin for helping us find our first home together! We love it!

After the unsuccessful efforts of another agent who listed our home in Austin, we found Kevin Wilhelm and are so grateful and happy that we did! Kevin is an exceptional agent who went way above and beyond what we would have expected from a Realtor to make it happen. He was complimentary about our home and suggested minor changes that would make the home more inviting. He took beautiful pictures of our home and set up an exclusive web site showcasing our property. He was generous with his time, gave us good advice, much needed support and a refreshing positive attitude in the midst of all of the challenges we faced. We felt like we really had someone looking out for our best interest at all times. His attention to detail and constant communication along the way made us feel like we were his only clients, although I know we were not. This put us at ease as we had already relocated to Dallas with a new baby and couldn't be there at all times during the process. I don't believe we could have done it without him. We will without hesitation recommend him to any one looking to buy or sell a home in Austin. Thanks Kevin!!!!

We moved from Indianapolis to Austin when I transferred with my company. Our Realtor in Indianapolis referred us to Kevin Wilhelm, and it was a perfect match! My husband and Kevin have very similar backgrounds and even went to the same college, so when we met in person for the first time, we knew we would become friends. Kevin gave us true, honest information about the local neighborhoods, the house we wanted, & mortgage companies. We appreciate his service and have already recommended him to other friends.

My house in Circle C failed to sell last summer with another agent. All of my plans to move and to move on with my life had to be put on hold because the house didn’t sell. I took the house off the market for the fall and winter and decided to try again this spring.
A friend who used Kevin on his house sale raved about him and recommended I try using him. I am so glad I did! From the very beginning, I could tell he was knowledgeable and detail oriented. He helped me stage the house with simple, inexpensive changes that made the house and grounds shine. He has a list of great contractors who are honest and ready to help with any necessary repairs or changes. He then took hundreds of pictures and selected the best for a slideshow on a website for the house he created. The house practically glowed!
He has a special knack of marketing the house using the top internet sites that people look at houses on. He would call me to ask to do open houses rather than the other way around. He kept me informed the whole time and answered every question I had. He truly made me feel as if I had someone who cared about selling my house as much as I did. I got an offer in a little more than 30 days and closed 30 days later! This in Circle C, a neighborhood with lots of competition from other houses.
I have met many Realtors in my time, but none hold a candle to Kevin Wilhelm! I don’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He is the best! "
Kevin Wilhelm is by far the best Realtor I have ever met. He helped us to sell a condo a year ago while we were living out of state and then when we decided to move back to Austin, he helped us to find a rental house. Our condo was less than desirable and he spend a lot of time and energy helping us to get the best price and making suggestions on minor improvements needed that made a big difference in actually selling the unit. We could never have sold the condo without his help since we were unable to come to Texas to assist in the process. More recently, when we moved back to Austin, Kevin helped us to find a rental house. We didn't even need to see that many places because Kevin really listened to what we wanted and only took us to places that made sense. Kevin Wilhelm is very patient, is constantly updating by phone and email the progress on the transactions, friendly, and total no pressure. I am planning on working with him in the next year or two when we decide to buy a house and without hesitation I am recommending him to everyone I know who is on the market.
Kevin Wilhelm was awesome! We interviewed several Realtors for the sale of our house, and Kevin won hands down! He marketed the house well, his market research was excellent and all presentations were well prepared. You can really tell he likes what he does by the amount of work he puts in on both the buying and selling ends. I am the type that likes to know everything and ask a lot of questions. When I called Kevin (sometimes 2 or 3 times a day) he either had an answer for me, or got back with one in a timely manner. There were several houses in our neighborhood for sale, but ours sold first and was priced competitively with the others. Whenever I plan on buying or selling another house we will, without a doubt, use Kevin Wilhelm again.

We all know there are many agents to choose from in the Austin area. Everybody has a friend that is one, a cousin that is one, or a relative that is one. I gave Kevin our business after hearing a friend rave about his outstanding service when selling their home and eventually purchasing a new home. Well, I couldn't have made a better choice. He is on top of all the newest Real Estate technology, knows the business, and has the patience of Jobe. When I am in the market again to sell and/or buy, Kevin is my go-to guy!
I hired Kevin Wilhelm to sell a very small piece of residential investment property for me. We both knew the property would sell for less than $100,000, however, Kevin treated it as if it were a $2,000,000 deal. He worked tirelessly for us and went way beyond what I would have expected from any agent to make it happen. I could not ask for a more competent or complete Realtor. Thanks Kevin!
Kevin's efficiency and expertise in the sale of my home was gratifying. Having had some bad experiences with others in the past, it was great to have an agent like Kevin who worked tirelessly on my behalf. Kevin stayed in close communication with us, and his knowledge of the closing process made it fast and easy. I highly recommend that home sellers in Austin engage Kevin Wilhelm's services!
I'm glad I used Kevin Wilhelm as my Real Estate Agent. He was always available and knows his territory very well. He was always willing to help in any way he could, and was invaluable in negotiating the price. Having an agent like Kevin on your side makes the process of finding the right home much easier.
We interviewed the top 3 producing agents in the Great Hills area. We selected Kevin Wilhelm, and are glad we did. Kevin was our comrade in arms. He was there for our celebrations and our angst--he was both sympathetic and empathetic to our concerns and anxieties. Kevin had the insight to see the value of our house even in a slow market. Working with Kevin, we were able to sell it for substantially more than the other broker's highest suggested listing price.
Kevin was hard working, diligent, thorough, professional, insightful and tenacious--all while being a wonderful person to deal with. I heartily recommend Kevin and would encourage anyone seeking a real estate representative for a sale or a purchase in any part of the greater Austin area to hire Kevin. He will do a great job for you like he did for us!

Kevin Wilhelm was so easy to work with! He not only met, but exceeded our expectations. Kevin sold our house when our previous listing agent couldn't. Communicating with him was easy. He worked hard and got the job done. It was a pleasure working with him. We will use him again in the future. Thanks again, Kevin!

It is difficult to explain all that Kevin Wilhelm did to help us sell our home and find the new home of our dreams. We lived in the same home for 24 years and dreamed of moving, but something always got in the way... kids, college, aging parents, kids... We tried Brand X and all they did was get a listing and disappear for 3 months. Then a good friend told me about Kevin selling his neighbor's house in 3 days. That certainly got our attention. Enough of the rookies, give us a pro!
We had some very difficult hurdles to jump with selling a house that we lived in for 24 years, but Kevin had the insight and the expertise we needed. We were especially impressed with his photography and the website that he created specifically for our house, and the great job of following up on all the details. We really do think that we would have given up and not sold our house if not for Kevin and the job he did. He is one of the most persistent and patient people that we have ever met.
Looking for a new home presented another group of challenges, but he really came through for us. His dedication and patience helped us realize our dream, so it is with great pleasure that we wholeheartedly recommend Kevin Wilhelm as your Austin Realtor.

My experience with Kevin Wilhelm has been phenomenal! He worked with me throughout the past year during many changes in my needs as a first time homebuyer. Kevin worked as a team with me and my mortgage lender to find the right home and get the right deal. His integrity really impressed me, and I recommend his services without question.

Kevin was always there to address my questions. He truly acted as an agent for me. I am so pleased with him! I felt like I not only had someone looking out for my best interest, but also a friend. He could not have been better!

Kevin Wilhelm was wonderful and just the type of person my wife and I needed. We were selling our first home, where we had been living for several years. We knew we were novice sellers, and neither of us could be called negotiators. However, we were sufficiently savvy to recognize the importance of having a Realtor who was extremely knowledgeable not only with selling a house but also with the housing market and the benefits of the neighborhood.
Kevin was all this and more! I could give many examples of how he marketed and showcased our house, but I’ll just say this: he merged classic marketing, modern technology, and a personal flair for photography and presentation. He also worked with us to make the process as simple and painless as possible. Kevin understood our concerns and limitations, and he helped us make informed decisions. He was more than professional; he was empathetic. I believe he wanted us to be as happy as possible while on the market and after the sale. He helped us deal with difficult situations with an understanding that I didn’t expect.
Kevin even helped us with a condominium purchase that we were doing concurrently, and he helped us arrange to have the proceeds of the sale transfer directly from the sale-side title company to the purchase-side title company. We didn’t even know we could do this. It allowed our purchase to close 3-5 days earlier, safer, and with significantly less stress. He also gave us tips that helped us understand the process better.

Kevin coordinated a complex combo of selling and buying closings flawlessly for me. He made it easy for me to understand the technicalities and requirements for the closings. He is clearly experienced, knowledgeable, and connected in Austin. And bottom line, I came out well financially on both houses, thanks to him.
I initially selected Kevin Wilhelm for my Austin home listing due in part to the very positive testimonials on his website. It is now a pleasure to add my own letter of recommendation regarding the quality of his professional work. Kevin is by far the best real estate agent I have worked with during the decades that I have bought and sold homes in various regions of the country. His professionalism, expertise, integrity, honesty, and communication skills are unsurpassed. He was able to apply his diligent research in a rapidly changing real estate market; excellent knowledge and usage of internet based real estate marketing methods; and masterful negotiation skills to sell my home which had previously been listed on the market with other agents for over a year without any offers. Kevin “gets results” and clearly is an asset to the real estate profession. I highly recommend Kevin Wilhelm without hesitation for one’s real estate needs and I certainly will engage his services again should the need arise.

I absolutely can’t say enough about Kevin Wilhelm and how amazing he was in holding my hand throughout the entire home buying process. If you or anyone you know is in the market to buy or sell in Austin, please consider talking to Kevin. I’ve been around real estate agents my entire life (my mom has been in the business in San Antonio since I was a baby, and still is), and I’ve also bought and sold a home before I moved to Austin, so I feel I know a quality agent when I see it. Kevin was professional, knowledgeable about the Austin market and even helped me connect with the right mortgage company that was able to close my loan in 20 days!
Again, whether you’re in the buyer or seller market now or will be in the future, I encourage you to consider using his services. He’s a rock star!
