“Thank you for all of the help and guidance in buying and selling in such a crazy market! We got what we wanted in the new house and were able to get more than we expected for the old one. You made the process as smooth as possible, and we are excited to have a new home for our family. We will definitely sing your praises if we hear of anyone looking for a realtor.

“The kids grew up and our house was just too big. Over the past several years we’ve watched Kopa properties selling all over the Avery Ranch neighborhood and met Eric and Joyce at a couple open houses. We watched a home selling seminar and decided to call KOPA. Joyce and Eric lead an outstanding marketing and real estate team that made selling our home easy. The Kopa Team staged and strategically marketed our home so that is sold FAST with multiple overs over the asking price. We are recommending KOPA to all our friends."

“We had to move out of state for a new job and decided to sell our house. We have known about Kopa through its local real estate news and attended a Kopa seminar about home sale. The seminar was very informative and contained great tips for homeowners who want to sell. When we decided to accept the out of state job offer, we had to focus on moving and trusted the Kopa team. Eric and Joyce took care of everything from market research for pricing to repairs and staging when we already moved out. Their network of contractors is excellent. Moving out of state then starting a new job was stressful, and we are glad the sale was very smooth, we received timely and good advice from Eric and Joyce throughout the offer and home inspection processes. We got multiple offers the first couple of days after listing and we went with the best one that was higher than the listing price. It was a five star home sale experience, we highly recommend the Kopa team."
“After 16 years, my wife and I decided it was time to downsize from our 3,500 sqft 2 story home. It was a tough decision to leave everything in the neighborhood behind but it really didn’t make sense for us to maintain a home of this size any more. When we sold our previous home (16 years prior) we had found a Realtor that really knew and specialized in our neighborhood, and we wanted to find someone that provided the same kind of personal service. After seeing some of the fliers and newsletters from Kopa we attended one of Kopa’s home selling seminars and immediately knew that Eric and Joyce Peterson were the Realtors we were looking for. We worked with Eric to determine what we believed was a fair sales price, and when was the best time to put the house on the market. Joyce helped us with decluttering, making some minor improvements (paint touch ups, etc.) and staging our home. Joyce also had a recommended set of contractors to help get our house into a move-in ready state. Selling a home can sometimes be difficult in the best of times so we were hoping that our timing and the improvements that we performed would help our chances of having a quick sale. The one thing that we did not anticipate was COVID-19! We had an open house on the weekend prior to the stock market crash on Monday. Shortly thereafter the city/state issued stay-at-home orders to combat the spread of the virus. The housing market went totally silent, and no one was doing showings. Luckily for us, the open house generated a number of leads, and with dogged pursuit from Eric keeping in touch with prospective buyers we ended up getting an offer at our asking price (again with the help of Eric’s negotiations). Other homes in the neighborhood that were for sale by other Realtors were still for sale as we closed! I firmly believe that without Eric and Joyce of Kopa marketing our home we would still be trying to find buyers. I strongly recommend Eric and Joyce if you are in the market. They are not only professional in their job, but very friendly and personable. We no longer think of them as our Realtors, but as our friends!"

“Our previous home was in Avery Ranch and we decided to use a Realtor that was referred by a co-worker that frankly had no clue about how to sell a home in Avery Ranch. What an absolute disaster with many months of heart ache, a lot of wasted money and zero results. Long story short about looking for another Realtor after the nightmare we endured..............Kopa Real Estate KNOWS Avery Ranch and KNOWS how to sell a home. Absolutely outstanding!! They had our house under contract in three days. They showed our home to a family at one of their Avery open houses and the family did not have a Realtor. They decided to have Kopa handle the whole process for them and us. Kopa Real Estate did an absolutely outstanding job to make the transaction beneficial to us and the buyer of our house. We also had a situation where we needed a leaseback while going through the purchase of our new home. Kopa Real Estate got it done and it was better than what we needed. Eric & Joyce are great folks to work with, ethical and realistic about what it takes to sell your home in terms of how to show it and where to price it. These two work hard to get it done and you will not be disappointed."

“Eric and Joyce were absolutely amazing! I have worked with a dozen agents over the last several years and these two are at the top my favorites list. Very professional, polite, friendly and knowledgable in the Austin market. Three other agents stated my home was worth $499,000, then Eric and Joyce sold it for $530,000. Now I have more money to travel the world with, YES!”
“Eric and Joyce were wonderful to work with. As first time sellers, we had countless questions regarding process, staging, maximizing our offers, and selling quickly. Not only were they incredibly knowledgeable of the housing market in Avery Ranch, but their communication was consistent and immediate throughout the entire process. My husband and I mentioned on several occasions that we felt like we were their only clients, even though we knew they had multiple homes on the market during the peak summer buying season!
In addition to be awesome realtors, they also provided us with furniture to stage an empty room at no charge and provided additional staging tips that allowed us to get the highest offer possible. We walked away from our first open house with 4 offers - all at or above asking price. We closed on our home with an offer $12k over the asking price and we know without a doubt that Eric and Joyce played an instrumental role in the incredible offers we received. If you’re looking for realtors who care about you and your family, your money, and treat you right, I highly recommend going with this team. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother home-selling experience.”

“Kopa Real Estate did an amazing job of marketing my home. If you are thinking about buying or selling, don't spend anymore time looking--call Eric. Unlike some other realtors I've worked with in the past, they understand how to market a house. While other homes are still for sale that were put up before mine, mine sold in days with 5 offers. They know how to create demand. HIGHLY recommend Kopa Real Estate.”
“Eric and Joyce helped us sell and buy our house simultaneously. They understand the market very well. Our house was sold above the listed price. They helped us prepare our house for the market, provided recommendations for handy man and other services as required which helped us get it ready in less than two weeks. Joyce was excellent in staging the house with her furniture, decors and accessories. It transformed our house and totally appealing. House was under a contract in a couple days. They helped us buy a house for much lesser than the listed price and were with us every step of the way. It's not easy to sell and buy at the same time. Very professional, friendly, reliable and always available for any questions or suggestions. Wonderful couple working as a team and servicing their clients making the process seamless.”

“Eric and Joyce were outstanding in sales, marketing and communications when selling our house. They have a deep knowledge of the local real estate market. In addition to being excellent real estate agents, they provided home staging at no additional cost. Our first listing agent was not able to sell the house more than 2 months. We switched to Kopa Real Estate and we received an offer after few open house. We would highly recommend Eric and Joyce for any home sale or purchase.”
“We recently sold our house, and Eric and Joyce handled everything for us with thorough professionalism and patience. They were always quick to answer our questions and were tireless in their efforts and made sure our interests were never compromised.”

Seller and Buyer Testimonial
“Eric has done two sell/purchases for me and he is the best realtor I have used in over 20 sell and purchases in 5 states. You’d do yourself a service to use him.”
“Kopa Real Estate went above and beyond when listing my home in Avery Ranch! They gave me guidance on how to prepare my home for listing and what to focus on to get the highest return on investment. They had reliable contractors to recommend. Everything was done in a timely manner to list the home in 2 weeks. Joyce staged the home to appeal to the buyers with no cost and they even included staging furniture. We had multiple offers and the home got sold for above list price to a buyer who came to our open house! They were terrific at negotiating and always had our interest in mind. Kopa Real Estate really understands the market very well and how to create demand for your home.”
Seller and Buyer Testimonial
“Working with Joyce and Eric made our first home-buying experience the best it could have been! Originally, we asked friends and family about who to use for a lender and they suggested we use Quicken Loans. Quicken also tried to pair us with a local realtor in their sister company. In the meantime, we met Joyce and Eric at an open house and really hit it off well with them. We didn't have a good experience with our loan officer from Quicken and since there was no face-to-face interaction, we decided to find another lender and switch to Eric and Joyce for our realtor. Eric gave a great recommendation for a lender that we ended up using and we had such a wonderful experience that we asked for a recommendation on other things too. All of their recommendations turned out to be wonderful experiences!
Joyce and Eric know the in's and out's of buying a house. Since we were new to everything, they walked us through what to expect throughout the process and were there every step of the way to give us advice and look out for us, without ever seeming pushy or manipulative. They were also very patient with us as we continued to learn what things we did and didn't want in a house. They gave us a lot of confidence so that when we found our house, we didn't hesitate to pull the trigger. As we discussed contract details with the seller, Eric and Joyce were always spot on with their counsel and suggestions. We walked away feeling like we got the house we wanted, on the best terms and without ever second-guessing anything.
I could go on and on about other details, but to keep it short - they know all the other details and will make sure you know about them and you know exactly what to do. In the future, whenever we decide to start the process again, Joyce and Eric will be our first call. There's not a doubt in my mind.”
