Keith exceeded our expectations! Keith was very very attentive to details and exceptional in getting answers for me that had to come from the buyers so yes, on a scale of 1-10, he’s an absolute 10!
I have already referred him to 3 people looking to sell East Austin property. So thank y’all very very much!
I will say that we could not have had a better experience with a Realtor. From the initial meeting to closing day, Keith had our best interests in mind. When we first sat down with Keith to explain what we were looking for, I don’t think Kelly and I really knew what kind of house or where we wanted to live. Keith took our temperature in what we really wanted and needed in a home and set up a very good search on the Realty Austin website.
We had some obstacles in getting pre-approved, but Keith pointed us in the right direction. As we worked on pre-approval Keith took a step back but still checked in every now and then to see how it was coming along. After about 3 to 4 months we were all set to start shopping for a new home. Keith made sure every house we looked at were homes that we favored and he included some that he felt fit what we were looking for.
We didn’t expect to buy a home as fast as we did. But with Keith’s help we found a perfect place for us and we felt comfortable with the whole process to move forward. As much help that Keith provided in the search of a new home, I felt Keith was most valuable in the steps leading to close. He was in constant communication with the builder and our lender. He made recommendations on inspectors and what we should be looking for, and he was there to help point out any issues that should be addressed by the builder before close.
At the end of the day it was the personal touch that Keith provided that made this process easy for us. This was a new experience for our family and there was some apprehension, but with Keith by our side it really helped put our mind at ease.
I would recommend Keith to anyone we know that is in need of a Realtor, and actually have already passed his information along.
Keith Baker is my hero!!
Keith helped my wife and I buy our first home with ease. He was beyond patient, knowledgable, kind, helpful, punctual, responsive, and awesome. He literally helped us every step of the way from showing us properties, recommending contractors and lenders, as well as always following up with everyone. He is also a phenomenal negotiator and is just generally exceptional to work with. He is hands down THE BEST Realtor in town, and if you are a first time home buyer Keith will go above and beyond in helping you every step of the way. If my wife and I ever buy again we will most definitely call Keith – he is the perfect 10!

It was a pleasure working with Keith to find our new home. He was informative, friendly and was constantly available for any questions I had about the process. I’m very happy with the property that I purchased with his help and I couldn’t have done it without his expertise and patience.
Thanks again for all of your hard work at Realty Austin.
Keith is AWESOME!!! If you were thinking about someone else slap yourself across the face and just pick Keith. You won’t regret it. He is knowledgeable, gets everything done quickly, is always available to answer questions, works with great lenders, and is all around excellent. He also is super personable and really makes you feel like you are his only client. Thanks, Keith.

Having a friend by your side helps, especially when it gets tough. I think we had that in Keith as we bought our first home. I am not sure we would have survived it without Keith on our side.
I understand being a good Realtor is a tightrope walk. Often, you work with people who are total novices making their life’s biggest investment. Keith perfected this tightrope walk. Starting from our initial contact till the closing date he was very attentive to what we wanted from the house. He never tried to push us into making decisions we didn’t want to. At the same time, he was very clear letting us know our pros and cons of all the options.
Give Keith a chance… and he will fight for you and make your home buying experience as good as it can be.

Keith Baker is the best–smart advice, savvy negotiation, assertive with the selling agent on my behalf, tenacious on addressing every detail throughout, trustworthy, quick response times AND fun to work with. I consider myself very lucky to have found Keith. I’ve bought and sold lots of property over the years. Keith is the best agent I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Thank you, Keith!
Laurie W., Yelp Review
Not only was Keith of great professional assistance in our home search, he was someone we grew to trust and respect as a friend as well. We kept in contact with Keith during the time we were in Texas and, as a result, when it came time for us to sell our home and return to Arizona, the first number we called was Keith’s. There was no need to research other options as we already trusted him completely. Keith was a consummate professional at all times, providing us with all the time we requested, answering our endless (and probably naive) questions with interest and accuracy. He never made us feel that his needs or agenda were a priority over our time and energy. In essence, we were always right (even when we were wrong). He was just so patient with us that it helped relieve the stress of trying to pack up our belongings, live in a pristine house and leaving at the whim of potential buyers, and prepare for a cross-country move that we dreaded. That was probably his most valuable skill for us – he made us comfortable with every decision we made.
Keith Baker has made a friend for life with the Mannings. We felt he went above and beyond, with the whole house purchasing process. We have and will continue to recommend Keith as the agent to have.
It was a joy working with Keith Baker. I selected Keith because he had earned my trust in his previous line of work. I also liked the fact that he lives in my neighborhood. I never considered anyone else when I began my search for a modest house to rent to my daughter and son-in-law.
He respected my modest budget and I felt that he was very supportive and transparent during the entire process. I complicated the process for him with my financing (using a home equity loan to purchase the new house) choice. Once I contacted him there was what seemed like a very long waiting period before my loan was finalized. He patiently checked with me and UFCU on a regular (but not obnoxious) basis . While we waited to be in a position to begin our search and make offers, I went to as many open houses as I could just to get a feel for what was out there in my price range. As it turned out I discovered the “perfect” property just as the loan approval was being finalized. At that point Keith set everything in motion. I made an offer and the sellers countered with a slightly higher amount. I declined their counter offer and Keith respected my choice to hold firm to my upper limit. To my surprise, the sellers did accept my offer and the rest of the process went smoothly. Keith did an excellent job of explaining every step of the process to me and calming my anxiety at taking this huge step.
I feel very satisfied that Keith did all he could to represent my best interests. In addition he is just a nice pleasant person and he is very easy work with. (I came across a couple of very weird realtors in my open house visits!).
It was a pleasure working with Keith and I would definitely recommend him to others.
My husband and I just recently purchased our first house in August. We really didn’t know where to start, but Keith was there. He was always available either by phone or email to answer our numerous questions. He showed great patience throughout the whole buying process. I regularly work weekends and nights, and Keith was always available on weekend evenings to accommodate us. He has even been available after we moved in to assist with questions. We felt that Keith always had our best interest and never pushed us to simply make a sell.
Keith Baker is one “Amazing ” Realtor. He gets a rating of 101%. He goes beyond to make sure we understand. And explains everything. He is a Great Investment for your Company. Hold on to him.
Thank you kindly Keith. Your the best!

Keith came strongly recommended by a friend and she was right. Keith you were a real help in our search for a new house in Austin. We know we’re not the easiest clients: limited budget, not knowing Austin and the different neighborhoods, close to daycare and work downtown, big garden, far from the train noise, hesitating between an apartment in Soco or a house in a calm neighborhood.
Keith kept patient and informed us with several options. He also was always in time at our multiple appointments. When we could not make it in person he even filmed the property for us and sent us the links. What we really appreciated as well was that Keith really let us decide and gave his advice when we asked for it but without influencing us to push the deal through. Another great thing was that Keith was always available for us even late in the evening and in the weekends. Keith is very personable and a good listener.
We would definitely recommend Keith and his services to someone looking for a professional realtor in Austin.
Thanks again, our house is awesome!
Lloyd & Miriam
I am so pleased with Keith. He was so knowledgable, gave me advice and suggestions when needed, and made closing a really smooth and great experience. I would definitely refer my family and friends to Realty Austin and Keith in particular. Great investment, I am grateful to have Keith as my Realtor. Thanks so much!
I have used Keith Baker, one of Reality Austin’s agent, to buy my house recently. He had been very professional all along, i.e. never tired of my request for checking houses at any day of the week, or anytime of the day. He carried himself in a gentle manner through out the whole buying process. If anybody is looking to buy a house in Austin, TX area, I would definitely recommend talking to Keith and Reality Austin. Satisfaction guaranteed!

We enjoyed working with Keith Baker. Thanks to his advise and hands on style, we were able to sell our property before it went to market and for the asking price! We were out of state sellers so Keith helped us with diverse tasks to get the property ready to market. Because of him, we were able to sell the property without having to be on site. Keith is profession, responsive, kind, and bakes the best christmas cookies. I highly recommend him. Thank you Keith for all you did for us!
Are you looking for an honest, responsive, knowledgeable and friendly realtor who will meet and exceed your expectations? Well, your search stops here. My wife and I were first time homebuyers and had no clue what we were getting into. We were like lost puppies searching, sniffing and getting lost in unknown territory; until we wandered into a model home, met Keith and instantly knew he was going to help us find our way. Now I am in sales, so I am very good at telling when someone is putting on an act and trying to make a quick buck. But Keith, greeted us with a huge smile a firm handshake and took the time to listen to us and build a relationship before even talking about business. Throughout the entire process, he was thorough and responsive. If I had a question I got the answer with an explanation that I could easily understand and fast! Last thing I would like to note is that Keith is very passionate about what he does. You can just see in his eyes that he prides himself in truly looking out for his clients. We plan on buying an investment property within the next 3-4 years and can’t wait to work with him again.
Keith if you are reading this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and are so happy with our new home!
We are so glad we used Keith as our agent when we bought our new “forever” home. In addition to being very knowledgeable about Austin and the home buying process in general, Keith made both the home search and home buying experience less stressful with his positive attitude, professionalism and attention to detail. Keith is very reliable and dependable; he responded to all our calls and emails promptly, answered all of our questions (and we had a lot of them,) and was always willing and available to take us to houses we wanted to see when it fit into our schedule. Keith is also skilled people person, which came in handy often, particularly with helping us figure out our must-have items, and also with making a house hunting weekend with our extended family fun and enjoyable! Because Keith did such a great job finding us our forever home, we probably won’t need his services again. However, we can highly recommend him to anyone else buying or selling a home and should we ever be lucky enough to be in the market for a vacation home, he will be the first person we call!
Keith was a really wonderful RE agent. As a new home buyer in the Austin area, he was very informative of options based upon goals, and always had answers to questions. He listened well, was readily available, extremely knowledgeable, and a professional in all respects. He truly wants to make his clients happy, and is well networked with reputable services affiliated to buying a home (ie: mortgage lenders, home inspectors, contractors, etc.). Bottom line, Keith is there for you!
I would recommend Keith to anyone going through the process of buying, renting, or selling a home. He took care of me in a very tough transition with his knowledge, kindness and efficiency. I don’t know what I would have done without him and I am very grateful.
Keith Baker recently helped my husband and I purchase our first home together! Keith was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the entire home buying process. He worked with the two of us to come up with a search that met our criteria and was readily available if there was a home that we were interested in viewing. Additionally, when it came time to make an offer, Keith was very knowledgeable and helped us to present an offer that was reasonable and more importantly, an offer that we felt comfortable with. He continued to check on us and be prompt and diligent through our closing date. I would highly recommend Keith and would happily use him as our realtor again!
When I thought about selling my house it was an overwhelming idea and I didn’t know how long the process would take. I was nervous because I was moving out of town an hour away, so my house would have to be shown and sold while I wasn’t there. Keith was the best realtor I could have wished or dreamed for. He reassured me that everything would be taken care of and went the extra mile to call, text, and email to keep me in the loop through the whole process. When I called Keith to be my realtor, I told him that we would have to list the house as soon as possible. He went to work immediately and had the house listed in less than a week and had the first open house that Saturday. It was unbelievable how quickly my house started showing and how great he was at marketing it. The house had a full-price offer after being on the market for less than a week and everything went smoothly through closing. Keith was on top of everything and sent me documents through email for me to sign and made me feel secure that he was taking care of everything needed. The process of selling my house could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Keith as a realtor, not only for his skills and knowledge in the business but also for his care and customer service. Though I am no longer living in the Austin area, I have recommended him and will continue to send friends his way. He is hard working, knowledgeable, personable, and overall great at what he does.
Keith was extremely easy to work with. I have trouble taking phone calls during the day, so he was accommodating by communicating via text/email. Keith went out of his way to help me with additional errands in the area, such as offering to find a short term extend-a-stay and helping us with a lock changing solution. Very easy to work with and made the experience enjoyable.
I would like to take this opportunity to talk about our real estate agent, Keith Baker, who recently helped my wife and I find a home in the Austin, Texas area. Keith was tireless in his efforts to help us in our search and was always available when I needed to talk through issues. My wife and I were very happy with Keith’s services. Moreover, we now count him as one of our first friends in the Austin area. My wife and I highly recommend you give Keith a try if you are looking to enter the Austin area market.
Keith Baker was absolutely vital in helping me sell my home quickly and ensuring that it sold for its true value. Up until the day of closing Keith was always available, day or night, rain or shine, to answer questions via e-mail, phone, or text. I have never met a more caring, hardworking, or dedicated realtor, and would not hesitate to recommend Keith for any home sale. Keith’s pleasant demeanor and low-pressure approach meant that I never felt uncomfortable when making an offer on a home. I knew that Keith was always advocating for me during the purchase process and his boundless energy kept me going until the end. Even after the closing process was complete Keith made sure that I was 100% satisfied with the purchase of my new home. Words simply cannot express the amount of respect and gratitude I have for Keith and all he did for me throughout this time.
Keith was such a help to myself and three roommates. We were looking to rent a house, and had no idea what to do. Keith was able to narrow what we wanted, make viewings, and he always responded quickly to any questions I had. He even took time from the Easter holiday to show us homes and help us with the process of applying.
He was friendly, and very professional. I highly recommend him.
Keith is awesome!!! He is honest, professional yet funny and fun to be around. He always acted in our best interest. We highly recommend him as an agent!!
We needed to find a house to rent in South Austin so we could move from North Carolina. Once we had our closing date for our NC home, we immediately began our search in Austin and one of the properties we were interested in online was listed by Keith. As is often the case in Austin, that property was no longer available but Keith quickly put together a search report for us based on all of our criteria, contacted the other realtors to set up appointments for our daughter, who already lived in Austin, to check out the properties, and helped us complete and submit all the appropriate paperwork in time to secure a good landing spot for us.
While other realtors could have offered to do the same for us, they didn’t. And while Keith received a finders fee from the realtor we rented from for his efforts, it was extremely valuable to us to have a knowledgeable representative on site. We certainly appreciate Keith’s commitment to creating long term relationships and will no doubt contact Keith when we begin our search to purchase a home.
