Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me...
I'm a native Texan, born and raised in Fort Worth, and for 14+ years now have called Austin home. It's near and dear to my heart - it's where I met my husband and where my two daughters were born. What a beautiful city to live, experience, and thrive in every day!
I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a B.A. in Psychology and ran cross country and track for the Razorbacks. Wooo Pig Sooiieeee! After college, I moved to Austin and worked in the fine jewelry industry. From there, I transitioned into real estate with JB Goodwin Realtors, and I couldn't feel more at home. I am so blessed to have the supportive 'family' within the company, and most of all I love getting to know my clients' needs and desires. I know Austin and I want to HELP you!
On a side note, here are a few things I like to do outside of real estate...
I cherish family time, whether it's sitting on our back patio with the girls (most likely watching them jump on our trampoline), going on a walk, or hitting the road for a weekend getaway. I still run for leisure and love a physical challenge - in particular, backpacking with my husband and our chocolate Labrador Retriever fulfills that intrinsic need to push beyond the limits. Not only that, but the peace and beauty that encompasses you while navigating from point A to point B is like no other experience. And of course it feels really good to lounge in a hammock after hours of intense hiking.
A few of my favorite things about Austin are the greenbelt woven within the city, the live music scene, the evolving food + drink culture, being spoiled with the best coffee (Caffe Medici), and most of all sharing a lot of the prior mentioned with my family and friends.
So, now that you know a little bit about me, I'd love to get to know you and how I can HELP fulfill your real estate goals and dreams. Let me share my knowledge, expertise, and hard work to provide you with the best experience when buying (new build or resale), selling, leasing, and/or investing.

We were connected with Kristina Cutbirth through my employer's relocation program and were absolutely delighted to partner with her in buying our first home! We couldn't have hoped for a more supportive and attentive realtor. Kristina made us feel totally at ease throughout the entire process, worked around our busy schedules, and was very understanding of our changing interests as we learned more about locations and homes. We really enjoyed the days we were able to tour homes with her, and she was always very insightful.” ~ Michael Dittman
Thank you Kristina & JBGoodwin!
Our experience working with Kristina selling our property was absolutely first-rate. Her personal attention and genuine interest in our needs made us feel as though we were her most important listing. Kristina is organized, knowledgeable, and dedicated. She utilizes none but the finest resources with regards to marketing, staging, and photography. A consummate professional and the kindest person you'll ever meet, Kristina will sell your mansion or cottage and everything in between. 11 out of 10, would recommend.” ~ Erich Neutz
We had an incredible experience working with Kristina. We were selling our house for a price range in the Austin luxury real estate market, and were weighing whether we wanted to work with a real estate agent or sell the home ourselves. We decided to evaluate 5 real estate agents, and listen to each of their market research, selling approaches, and positioning. Kristina stood at the top from the presented research and pitches. She listened to our needs intently, and asked questions that could help us see how she worked, while gathering the information required to curate our selling experience. We were looking for someone who didn't oversell or undersell us on the market value of our property, who aligned data points and analyses with our potential market, selling experience, and expected outcomes; had a robust approach and methodology to marketing and presenting the house to the market; was organized and worked through the communication channels that best fit our needs; was able to navigate stressful conversations between ourselves and others with grace and ease; knew how to orchestrate a larger team and set of resources and tasks, and was a master negotiator when it came to the selling and contracting process. Kristina excelled at all of these criteria - and even more so - truly loved what she was doing. By working with her, you actually witness how this enjoyment allows her to embody the required masterful traits of an all-star realtor. We decided to put our house on this skyrocketing market - post-covid restrictions and lockdowns with the average days on market at 5 - we were hit with ballooning inflation, the Fed hiking interest rates, and an increased supply of inventory. These times of market volatility are challenging, for both buyers and sellers, and require graceful navigation through life-changing decisions and outcomes. Even with these outlying circumstances, Kristina was able to use the data we had been collecting and her realtor abilities to develop a rewarding selling experience and final outcome for our home. It's no easy feat to maintain composure and momentum when the market is changing so rapidly and still manage to have enough flexibility to adjust plans in order to grow traction - leading to successful sales. Kristina did an incredible job, and we can only praise her work and feel thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her. Thank you again Kristina and JBGoodwin for the top-level support and for the incredible impact you made in our lives.” ~ Jonathon Miller-G.
Kristina really was great. First of all, she listened to our unique requirements, needs, and wants, and then each day as homes became available that possibly fit our list, Kristina would filter through them and forward some to us. She stuck with us, didn't just push us blindly into the wrong property, and eventually we closed on a perfect home for us. The whole time Kristina helped guide us through the process (this is our first home purchase). She introduced us to a few mortgage brokers, and one was able to make it work with the downpayment we had available. From start to finish Kristina communicated clearly, was HIGHLY responsive, and helped us navigate until the closing. We're really happy a close friend recommended Kristina to us, otherwise we wouldn't have found our dream home.” ~ Brian Wilson
“I didn't truly understand the value of working with a real estate agent until we collaborated with Kristina Cutbirth. Despite 2K miles between us as we shopped for our first home in Austin, TX from Oakland, CA, Kristina made the process of selecting, touring, and negotiating the sale of our home a seamless experience. Thanks to Kristina we closed a deal exactly one month after we began our accelerated adventure. We got the home we wanted at below the asking price-practically a miracle in Austin's current economy. Kristina listened carefully to both my partner and my home requirements and hopes, which were at times not in alignment, yet she seemed to find homes that we were both excited to view each time. Kristina also shared a ton of relevant school information, narrowing our search down from the beginning to map to the public school we wanted our son to attend. Kristina eliminated challenges posed by the geographical barrier between us by live streaming all of the home walk-throughs as well as by collaborating with my family living in Austin. She invited my Aunt and Uncle living in Hyde Park to every house visit, which was a tremendous help. If we weren't able to attend the live stream from the Bay Area, Kristina would send up files of the video walk-through. We were able to glean enough data, and family input to make a truly informed decision, all thanks to her above and beyond efforts. We felt confident from the beginning of the process that we could be candid with Kristina about our financial picture, home requirements, and we could trust she was invested in finding us the perfect home at the perfect price. Kristina is the best if you want to work with a warm and empathetic, yet deeply informed and experienced realtor.” ~ Natalie Cone
“Would 100% recommend Kristina to all my friends and family. She was very patient and kind with us throughout our process of searching for a new home to rent. She went out of her way to make time for us for showings. We are entirely satisfied and very happy with our new home. Thank you again Kristina!” ~ Geri Brodlowicz
“I enjoyed working with Kristina Cutbirth to find a home in Austin. As a first-time home buyer, Kristina made sure I was familiar with the process and answered any questions I had during the process. She was extremely patient while it took me a few months to find a home for me. Her expertise and knowledge helped me make a competitive offer in this market. I would highly recommend working with Kristina!” ~ Devangi Parikh
“JBGoodwin has always been a trusted name in real estate and my experience was flawless. I thought finding the perfect home was going to be a real challenge in this market with my budget, but I learned very quickly that you must START with the perfect realtor...I use that word PERFECT sincerely because Kristina Cutbirth checked every box during my experience searching for and buying my home. She had the knowledge to answer all of my questions and to advise when timing was essential to make the purchase. I would have been overwhelmed with the whole process since it's not something that I've been through in many years, but step by step Kristina took me through with patience and the experience needed to close on the property that is just right for me. Thank you so much Tina!” ~ Jackie Smith
“Kristina Cutbirth is the best! Please use her for all your realtor needs. She is caring and professional and will represent your interests above all else. Go with Kristina to get the results you want.” ~ Mac Allen
“Kristina is such a wonderful Agent. We chose to go with her because she seemed to know her stuff well. She understood our point of view and what we were looking for as sellers. We were supposed to sell our house in 2020 but just then we got hit by the pandemic. She would always stay in touch and keep us updated with the current housing market scenario and finally helped us sell our house in 2021. She is very helpful and super responsive about any concerns or questions we may have.” ~ Samarth & Snigdha Mehta
“Kristina was great with answering our questions and helping us find the perfect condo!” ~ Allison Childs
“I worked with Kristina Cutbirth who really came through when I had issues negotiating with the buyer. She had great ideas and was always available. I’ve bought & sold 6 homes in the Austin area and she impressed me the most. Thanks!!!” ~ Anton Thane
“My husband and I became first-time homeowners thanks to the care and guidance of Kristina Cutbirth. She was AMAZING throughout the whole process. If you're looking for a realtor to be a great partner with you in your process, you won't do better than Kristina. She is knowledgeable, caring, attentive, and responsive. We felt that she went above and beyond every step of the way to ensure that our experience was as smooth and non-stressful as possible. We love our new home and are so thankful for Kristina's help!” ~ Kirsten Weatherly
“If you’re ever looking for the best possible real estate agent you can work with, consider Kristina. Kristina was absolutely instrumental to us finding and getting our house. From the house showing, to bidding, inspections, repair negotiations, contractual details, closing, and every possible question we could throw at her (of which there were many), she was with us every step of the way. She is incredibly knowledgeable and pointed out pros and cons of each house that would have completely escaped us. She never however imposed, but offered her expertise as a guide or counsel, working according to our needs and interests. Kristina is a great listener with a keen knowledge of market trends. She's the type of agent that will find you that house even in the most competitive of markets. And on top of all the professional competence, she is as warm, kind, and genuine a human being as they come. We could not recommend Kristina more highly!” ~ L.P.
“Kristina made our moving experience so easy. She was always available and always customer-focused. We were able to find a place we love and we feel so welcome to Austin. I highly recommend using Kristina as your realtor because she will always be able to find what you need. Great realtor and even greater experience!” ~ Caroline Dussom
“My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Kristina Cutbirth. She was absolutely amazing to work with, had the best attitude and inside knowledge into the Austin market. We were coming up on our lease and were looking to both buy and rent options. Kristina handled both exceptionally and worked tirelessly until we successfully found a new place! I would recommend Kristina for anything real-estate in Austin as she has an amazing work ethic, attitude, and insights into all areas of Austin. Thanks again Kristina and JBGoodwin. When we look to buy next year we will for sure be reaching out to them! Appreciate it!” ~ Alyn Wesley
“I had a great experience working with Kristina Cutbirth to purchase my first home. I found my home quickly and she made the process as stress-free and simple as possible. She was always professional and available whenever I had a question or concern. Kristina was also helpful with keeping me on track as far as when to schedule an inspection and had a ton of helpful resources to help me along the way. I would highly recommend this company and this realtor is particular.” ~ Olga Neverovitch
“I was very lucky to meet Kristina Curbirth at one open house when I started looking for a place for me. It was in the middle of lockdown due to COVID so all the procedures took longer than they should have and she was so patient and understanding. She listens to you, answers all the questions at her best knowledge, follows up promptly, and willing to go all out for you. I highly recommend her!” ~ Chiaki Krupp
“We enjoyed working with Kristina Cutbirth. From Day 1 through our closing (both of sell of our property and purchase of a new property), she was professional and on top of every detail, keeping us informed of every step in the process! She sent a home stager to consult with us and a professional videographer. Our home sold within the first few days at full price! We can not recommend her highly enough!” ~ Joy Holley
“I had the privilege of working with Kristina Cutbirth to lease my house this month. Kristina was so warm, knowledgeable, and professional. No matter the question or concern, Kristina had an answer or found a solution. She worked tirelessly and made me feel confident and comfortable through the processes of finding great tenants. I would recommend Kristina to anyone looking for an ally, confidant, and partner to help with your real estate transaction!” ~ Marcie Eloise Jones
“We worked with Kristina Cutbirth and couldn’t have had a better experience! We met Kristina over a year ago when she helped us find a rental home when we first relocated to Austin from San Antonio. We knew very little about Austin at the time and Kristina really helped us find a great location to settle into for the first year. When we were ready to buy, we knew who to call! Kristina had kept in touch throughout the year and we were so happy she was able to take us on as clients. We knew from our renting experience that she was very knowledgeable about the area of town we were hoping to buy in.
Kristina met with us right away and listened carefully to all our “must-haves” and “deal breakers” for a new home. She also spent a lot of time going over the home buying process—which was totally knew to me. Before she gave me the crash course, all the home buying jargon sounded like a foreign language to me. But with her guidance, I felt like I was starting the process knowing what to expect and what our goals were for each step of the process. I definitely felt less intimidated with Kristina in our corner!
We actually ended up buying the first and only house we saw with Kristina. I was so glad she thought of us when she heard about the listing because it is truly our dream home. Kristina worked so hard to get our offer together quickly and updated us every chance she could. We never felt like we were wondering what was going to happen next. Kristina guided us step by step. On top of that, we got great recommendations from Kristina on everything from a lender to a home inspector.
The sellers wanted a quick close on the home and we were able to do it thanks to Kristina and her team! I know she was up past her bedtime many days getting everything done for us (and working through the weekend)! We felt like such a priority to her. My friends have told me that not every home buying experience goes so smoothly and quickly, but I am confident that I would want Kristina on my side under any circumstances. I can’t thank her enough for helping us find such a perfect home. I would definitely recommend her to any friend or family member.” ~ Lauren Jungquist
“Kristina Cutbirth is AMAZING! She is the most professional, attentive, detail-oriented, and helpful realtor we could ever ask for! She is great at what she does and really helped us feel informed and great about our home-buying process. She was with us every step of the way! Definitely recommend!” ~ Christina Rivera
“Kristina was an absolute pleasure to work with as our agent. She was quick to respond, professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She made our entire process searching for and finding a home an easy one. I highly recommend Kristina!” ~ Hannah Riva
“It is nearly impossible to more wholeheartedly recommend Kristina Cutbirth and Greg Galindo of JBGoodwin! They were truly incredible. Not only did Kristina and Greg help us secure a solid offer within hours of listing our property, they also helped us locate our new home a few weeks later. I’m not going to lie. Selling and buying homes, and feeling the pressure to move, are stressful but Kristina and Greg were great partners in the process, answering my endless questions, and guiding us effortlessly through the frustration of losing bids on homes and facing multiple costly moves in a short amount of time because we couldn’t find our new home quickly enough. They also facilitated finding an unbelievable lender who helped us close in just 10 days! We will always be grateful for Kristina and Greg and are confident that anyone who uses them will also share in our belief.” ~ Kristina & Greg
“Kristina Cutbirth was such a wonderful realtor to work with! She is an absolute gem and made our first-time home buying process so smooth and easy. She is a true professional, highly communicative, extraordinarily kind and caring, and quickly became part of our "dream team" as I lovingly called them by the end. When we started looking, we got pre-approved early just to see what range we would be looking in, but we were thinking we would get serious about buying in a few months as we got close to our rental lease ending. Regardless of our timeframe, she indulged in my desire to start looking at a few homes I had my eye on, and trekked out of her way on off-hours to accommodate my schedule, with both of my young kids in tow no less. Well wouldn't you know it, after looking at a couple of houses, we went into one and I got that "This is the house" feeling! Our budget as first-time homebuyers was right in that range that usually would get us into a smaller home to start, but this house got us a much needed 4th bedroom and over 2k square feet, as well as a bunch of wish list items. I knew we needed to move quickly as it was just in the range we could afford and was getting a LOT of interest. The very next day she met with my fiance late in the evening to show him as well, and he loved it too! We decided to make a move and put in an offer before the weekend when they would be having another open house. Knowing our budget was strict, she worked very hard to negotiate into our price range, and helped us to connect with the sellers to show them how much this home would mean to us. Thanks to her persistence, our offer was accepted and we went forward through the home buying process! Kristina came to our home inspection, she connected us to our wonderful, communicative, and fair mortgage team, and walked us through every nuance we could think of, and some we didn't! You will be hard-pressed to find a better realtor than Kristina! She really made this process so exciting when it could have been so stressful. AND, this all happened across the holidays from Thanksgiving to Christmas, and she never missed a beat. We so appreciate you Kristina!! THANK YOU!!!” ~ Melissa T.
“I worked with Kristina Cutbirth on the purchase of my first home! It can be such a stressful process and Kristina helped make the transaction smooth and as easy on me as possible. When the other parties involved in the transaction weren’t responsive, she stayed on top of them to get the answers I needed to move forward with my purchase. She made herself available around my work schedule to tour properties and was quick to schedule times for me to see my new home before we closed! I recommend Kristina if you are looking to buy or sell your home.” ~ Leah Bellon
“Kristina Cutbirth helped me through what could have been one of the most stressful points in my life, purchasing my first home. She was there every step of the way from searching for and meeting up at multiple properties, speaking with builders, guiding me through the financial approval phase, making sure I was getting exactly what I wanted in terms of the build and any incentives being provided by the builder, and ultimately closing. I could not recommend her more on a professional level and personally she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. It took a week for the builder or financial institution to get back to me, but Kristina was only a text away. Anyone seeking support in buying their first home or their next should definitely get in touch with Kristina. You will be so happy that you did.” ~ Sean Ryan
“I had such a great experience with Kristina Cutbirth. She made the process of leasing our home and moving into a new one so easy! Incredibly grateful for the experience!” ~ Annie Fuller
“My family had recently learned that we would be moving from Oklahoma to Austin. I didn't know where to start or what to do. I've never made a move this big in my life. I asked the question in a group that I joined on Facebook. To my surprise, I received a message from Kristina Cutbirth. Kristina was on the job the same day. She found us so many beautiful homes in the Austin area that met what we were looking for. She never gave up on us or pushed, nothing negative at all. Thankfully to Kristina, my family moved to Pflugerville. We are all so very happy and thankful for everything Kristina did to take care of us. She is such an amazing, hardworking lady!” ~ Bob Hoffman
“Kristina Cutbirth helped me out so much. Was very personable and worked very hard for us to find a home for us. Literally found out anything we wanted to know about certain properties. Thanks to her we were able to find a home that fit perfectly with who we are.” ~ Brad Silman
“I’ve very much enjoyed working with Kristina Cutbirth. Kristina is a Real Estate Agent extraordinaire. I am impressed with her attention to detail, her understanding of various neighborhoods and the overall Austin market. Kristina listens to her clients. She is able to assist them in refining their search to locate the right home at the right price in the right neighborhood. Kristina guides her clients well from start to finish. She will go the extra mile taking care of the numerous small, but important details necessary to close the sale or make the purchase. Kristina Cutbirth is an exceptionally gifted Real Estate Agent who works hard to keep her clients satisfied. I am absolutely confident that anyone who decides to work with Kristina will be very pleased with their decision.” ~ Don Read
“I met Kristina Cutbirth a few months ago when we wandered into an open house in the same area we were looking for a new home. Having met multiple realtors in the months prior to this (as we had begun our search for a new home in the Austin area), she was honestly a breath of fresh air -- genuine, kind, down to earth, not pushy AT ALL, and just downright pleasant to talk with. Although we already had a realtor who was helping us with our home buying process, Kristina checked in with us very respectfully and professionally to see if she could do anything for us while we waited to close on her house. As we had found out in talking that we both lived in the same area of town, Kristina did in fact reach out to her friends and network to see if there were any short term accommodations that would carry us to our closing date (as our lease was ending). Although we did not get a chance to use Kristina throughout our home buying process, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Austin. Kristina has gone above and beyond for me -- I can only imagine how she treats her clients. JB Goodwin Realtors is lucky to have her.” ~ Danielle De La Monja
“Kristina Cutbirth just helped us purchase our first home, and gosh, she was incredible! We're pretty easy going and just needed a pro to hold our hands through the things we didn't know. She did all that, and more. She was thorough, kind and took the time to explain all the things that accompany buying a home. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home!” ~ Macy Morrow
“I worked with Kristina Cutbirth to find a place downtown and she was amazing! She was knowledgeable, responsive and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She was quick to notify me of new listings and was always responsive with any new updates. Kristina made the entire process easy, quick and seamless. I would definitely recommend working with Kristina to any one!” ~ AJ Shavell
“Kristina Cutbirth was an angel sent from heaven. She was incredibly helpful in finding me a property that fit my needs exactly. She was very hands on and took a major worry off of my shoulders when it comes to scheduling visits/communicating with the property managers and everything in between. I will recommend her to any of my friends looking for a new home! I hope you do too!” ~ Becky Reeves
Kristina Cutbirth was very helpful in finding our first home to rent as we moved back to Austin from Georgia. She provided us with a wide selection of homes that fit our search criteria and was always readily available to do a tour (even visiting the same home multiple times in one day!). We are pleased with the process from start to finish and will definitely be recommending Kristina to others for their realty needs.” ~ Andre Lacquement
I had a wonderful experience working with Kristina Cutbirth this fall, and I highly recommend her. Kristina is a wonderful listener. In fact, she made me feel more listened to than any other realtor I had worked with. She invested her effort and attention into hearing my needs and my goals, which was so comforting. (And isn’t that what we all want throughout the home buying process?) Kristina utilized our time wisely. The home search was fast and efficient which was helpful since I didn’t have much time to waste! Kristina is trustworthy and excels at following-up. She patiently answered all of my questions. (All one-million of them!) If you have the opportunity to work with Kristina in the future, I know you will be pleased.” ~ Leigh Hamilton
