We are renowned for our integrity, professionalism, and customer-oriented approach to helping our clients and empowering them to make sound financial decisions.

Eric Peterson has been named one of the Top 25 Real Estate Brokers by the Austin Business Journal and Kopa Real Estate has over 200 five-star reviews from previous clients.

Eric Peterson was taught by his grandfather practically everything on how to operate a small business. One of the most invaluable lessons he learned was handling clients so they could proceed to do business based on a handshake. A critical life skill, Eric felt this was not feasible in a huge real estate company as personal attention to detail would be missing. Thus, Kopa Real Estate was born to deliver the personal touch and execution that clients will appreciate.

Kopa Real Estate takes pride in its highly dedicated and motivated team that works together to meet all clients’ needs. The team consists of Eric and Joyce Peterson, along with two Marketing Assistants, a Home Stager, and a Buyer’s Agent. As area experts, we leverage our vast real estate expertise and in-depth knowledge of the local market and surrounding areas to guide, advise and educate our clients extensively about the market dynamics and offer genuine insights.

Kopa Real Estate helps clients in the Greater Austin area sell their homes fast and at a premium price. On average, we sell our listings for 5% more money than average agents and in 33 fewer days. The bottom line is that it means a quicker sale and more money in your pocket. What makes us unique is that we have a professional stager on staff, but we also own a large inventory of staging furniture our clients can use as part of our Free Home Staging Furniture Package.

We also have existing professional relationships with vendors and contractors to do any make-ready needed quickly and affordably to position homes we sell in the market to get the maximum possible price. Our proven marketing plan is designed to help you sell your home fast for a premium price in the shortest amount of time.

As your broker, we will ensure your listing receives maximum exposure through the utilization of professional photography, expert staging and presentation advice, detailed listing descriptions, high-quality print media, and targeted online marketing campaigns. We also take the risk out of listing your home through our Easy Exit Listing Agreement. As experienced real estate investors, we strive to guide investors in analyzing properties with the potential for high returns.
