Texas has always been my home. I grew up in San Antonio and have lived in Austin since 2010. I met my husband at Auditorium Shores near downtown Austin and we are now raising our two awesome kids here in this great city. I enjoy hiking, camping, swimming, roller skating, quilting, baking, traveling, family gatherings, and reading a good book. I have volunteered in various settings in Austin such as The Miracle Foundation, AGE of Central Texas, and Education Connection. I love the warm weather, the friendly people, and the creative vibe of Austin and I want to help you make this beautiful place your home, too!
I have a Master's degree in Social Work and was in that field for several years as a Case Manager, and later, as a Branch Manager for a home care company here in Austin. We provided Home Health Aides to our clients who needed the extra help in order to remain in their homes. One thing I learned in that field is how much people want to stay in their home — no matter what. It's a comforting safe space, a place to live with and gather with the people who you love, and a place filled with memories. Coming into the Real Estate profession with my experiences in Social Work has given me a perspective of the importance of what a house can be to someone.
Whether you are looking to buy that perfect place to call home, or are saying goodbye to your beloved home, I can help you through the process. I can also help with investors, renters, and apartment searching. I am motivated, detail-oriented, have a strong ethical compass, and will work hard to meet your expectations.
The mission statement at JBGoodwin Realtors is to HELP PEOPLE. As a former social worker, this resonates with me. I'd love to help you in this important next step!
What an amazing experience! Mrs. Orr was so kind, attentive, available, and informative during the whole process. She found us a great location and my family and I are overjoyed. I have never met someone willing to work so hard to find us the perfect match! – Chelsea Peralta
Kristy was so good at what she does. My wife and I had so much trouble with other realtors. And someone referred us to her. And she went over and beyond for us. We thought it was going to be impossible for us to find a place. But she found one perfect for us. She is the one to go to. – Justin Stewart

Kristy is an excellent communicator. She can be supportive, empathetic, and understanding of a person’s needs, but is easily able to pivot and offer clear direction and guidance when warranted. She is very adaptable to different personality types and I have no doubt she would be a great representative to any sellers or buyers that she served. – Lane Garlock

I've known Kristy for 15 years. She is one of the hardest working, kindest people I know. Whatever her job (usually helping others) she is diligent to make sure she does her absolute best for the client. She is down to earth, easy to talk to, and has a great dry sense of humor. I go to her for advice because I know she will give a well thought out and honest perspective. – Kadie A.
