Kirsten Hanna joined the Nest Properties Austin team in 2013 focusing on Service. It is not about the quantity of business. It is about quality and providing over and above superior customer service to each and every one of her clients. Her client reviews are a testament to her commitment to this philosophy.

Kirsten’s background includes a double major in Finance and Real Estate from the University of Colorado Boulder where she met her husband, Scott Hanna. Together, they have raised three children in the Four Points area for the past 17 years and have been very actively involved in the community.

Kirsten brings to the team her experience with new construction in the Austin, Texas market. She has built a home for her family taking charge of all phases from choosing the lot, to obtaining permits, vetting contractors, working with inspectors, and ultimately celebrating the day when the Certificate of Occupancy was in hand.  Using that knowledge, she went on to additional projects include becoming certified in Color, working as a decorator, contracting four remodels, and building a bunkhouse for a family project in Lago Vista.

Kirsten has also helped numerous real estate clients buy and sell existing and new homes over the period of 23 years while working for Coldwell Banker in St Louis, Missouri and Nest Properties in Austin, Texas.

Are you considering building a new home? Have you thought about whether you will first see the outside wall of your garage OR your beautiful front landscaping and inviting front door as you drive up to your new home?  Have you considered that the floor plan could be flipped to maximize your curb appeal? So easy!  Or, have you thought about how more insulation in the master bedroom wall that faces the late afternoon summer sun could significantly reduce your utility bill and enhance your level of comfort? How about whether the exterior trim color will fight with the tones in the exterior stone?  Or, which lot should you choose given the differences in the topography of each? These are critical decisions, much of which can only be learned through years of experience. Kirsten has a wealth of knowledge in real estate and new home construction that is invaluable to her clients.  She is passionate about helping others navigate through the exciting and intricate process of purchasing a new home or building a dream home.

Kirsten is your New Construction expert in Austin, Texas!  She would love to help you though what can be a very intimidating process…and make it fun and enjoyable!

Kirsten “offered suggestions for changes/upgrades to the house at several price point levels.” She was “able to select and manage vendors and workers who she trusted and who did great work.” She was “able to find a replacement front door (great first impression!) at a great price.” Kirsten was “able to stage the house to look absolutely beautiful and large and appealing!” She placed “notifications prior to the house actually going on the market, which generated interest early and resulted in a fast sale.” And, she “provided professional advice all through the process while still leaving decisions to me.  I felt very supported all through the entire process yet felt like decisions were still my own.  I never felt pressure, only support.” S.
