I have worked with Kinan twice now. On both occasions Kinan went over and above the call of duty to educate me, get me the best deal, and make sure I found the perfect place. I’m a pretty high maintenance girl and I like to be VERY hands-on, so I’m sure I landed at the upper end of the needy-client spectrum, but he never failed to respond to my many late night emails and didn’t bat an eyelash when I presented him with custom spreadsheets. Kinan was a great source of calm through every stressful step of the relocating and renting/buying process. Two years ago, Kinan helped me find a fabulous apartment when I relocated to Austin from out of state. At the time, I knew nothing about Austin (or Texas!) let alone where I wanted to live. Kinan went out of his way to not only educate me on Austin neighborhoods and apartment complexes, but also to get an understanding of my lifestyle so that he could advise me on perspectives I hadn’t considered. Most recently, Kinan helped me buy my first house, a bank-owned foreclosure in central Austin. He knew all the players and was AMAZING at negotiating through the red-tape involved in buying a foreclosure. Hours after our first walk-through, he even managed to get a contractor to meet us at the house so that I could get an estimate on renovation costs as I considered making an offer. After closing on the house, he set me up with mover recommendations and made sure I had everything I needed to get settled. When I decide to sell this house and move onto something bigger (I’ve been bitten by the real estate bug), I will unquestionably work with Kinan again, as both a listing and buyer’s agent. In short, if you’re looking for a real estate agent in Austin for renting, buying or selling, you couldn’t do better than Kinan Beck. He’s the best.
