Risa Kim

Welcome to JB Goodwin! My name is Risa and I'm originally from the Bay Area, born in San Jose, California, however, I've lived in this great city of Austin for over 25 years. I've breathed every part of this town, lived through its changes, and I'm knowledgeable about every backroad and corner. 

I'm a proud graduate of the University of Texas, where I earned a Bachelors degree in Education. Before pursuing real estate, I had a valuable career as a dedicated and thorough legal assistant with a prestigious law firm. My interest and passion for real estate grew as I witnessed my aunt build her real estate empire, and retire at an early age.  After investing in my first property, and truly experiencing the process, I knew it was the right career path for me. With my creative, caring and enthusiastic nature I make it easy to match my client's desires, as well as skillfully featuring a home's unique presence and character.

I love sports and am a huge San Francisco 49ers and Golden State Warriors fan! As an admitted foodie, I make it my business to locate the best restaurants and hideaways in and around the city. 

Aside from hanging out with a fantastic family, amazing friends, my Chihuahua, Mr. Mac, I enjoy diverse interests, including traveling, taking in the music scene wherever I go, and riding motorcycles. 

I love Austin and KNOW Austin, and would love to be the person that HELPS YOU with any of your real estate needs! 

Risa Kim, REALTOR®

Testimonials

“Risa Kim was amazing at helping me and my partner find an amazing apartment. I was relocating to Texas and she was so knowledgeable about the area. She also was really communicative about our options within our price range, she met with my friend to show the apartment before I was in the city, and I heard nothing but great things about the showing. I highly recommend using Risa as your next realtor.” ~ Zoe Ketcham-Harvey
“Risa went above and beyond. She exceeded expectations.” ~ Dr. Rhoades

“What could I say about my agent Risa! She is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! I was having the hardest time finding a place and getting approved. Due to past eviction on my rental history, I was being denied. I was ready to give up but not Risa. She worked so hard by calling other agents, explaining my situation, and making people give understand everyone deserves a second chance. She was so confident and not going to give up until she found me my perfect home. She went above and beyond to get me into my new place and I'm truly thankful for her.” ~ Nannette Harris
“Risa was very accommodating to our situation and put forth a great effort to sell our home.” ~ Jacqueline Dyach
“<p>Our Realtor, Risa Kim, was a huge asset to buying our first home! She was very helpful throughout the entire process and flexible with our schedule. After seeing the homes online, she was able to help us see the homes in person and even organized them in the order she expected us to like them (which was accurate). Throughout the process, she explained to us what was happening and helped us through the back-and-forth with the seller. Risa informed of us about the market, selling process, and helped us find a mortgage lender. I expect her to be one of Austin's best selling realtors in the near future.</p>” ~ Kevin D.
“<p>As a first time home buyer, the process was very overwhelming and stressful, so having a great realtor was a big plus. That realtor was Risa Kim. She worked very hard daily and behind the scenes to make sure that I got the best home available and she delivered. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for you and your professionalism during this whole process. From dealing with a wide array of situations such as relocation contracts, estate sales, bad agents, backup contracts, you name it and it happened. She remained calm and collected throught it all. I would highly recommend Risa to anyone in need of buying, selling or even renting a home and she will take care of you like she did for me. Thank you for everything Risa. Job very well done!</p>” ~ Emmanuel Prempeh
“<p>Ris Kim is the ABSOLUTE BEST! I had about a month to find a new place and she really helped me find the perfect place I now call home. It's absolutely perfect!

Take a chance and call her, you will be happy you did!</p>” ~ Kara Ozen

Thanks so much Risa!</p>” ~ Jacqueline Yoo
