The Koester Team
208 W Main St
Arlington, TX 76010-7112
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"I have bought and sold 5 homes in the last 30 years in Arlington and Holly is by far the absolute very best I have ever worked with!! I first met her almost 13 years ago when I purchased my current home. She represented the seller, not me, the buuyer. I heard from her immediately following the closing with a congratulations note and every year after on our closing anniversary, she would send an anniversary congratulations. Periodically I would get a phone call inquiring if we had any realtor needs. I am a believer in customer service! It took research to find out if we still lived at that address. She made the experience of purchasing our current home less stressful than the others I had contracted with or worked with. There was no doubt she would be my realtor when I sold this rental home. "
-Tana Baldwin, Client
"Holly was absolutely amazing! I will be recommending her to anyone and everyone that is looking to buy or sell a house. She was so sweet and helpful. She took me through the process and was on the ball the entire time from start to finish. Holly Koester is without a doubt one of the best realtors I have ever encountered and as awesome person as well!"
-Tiffany Ibarra, Client
"Holly took a very difficult and stressful situation and made it look simple. Her inside tips, knowledge of the market, tireless work in preparing the house, negotiations and follow-up were stellar. With Holly at the helm, we were able to get substantially more for the house than we thought possible. I highly recommend her and will certainly use her for all of my future real estate needs. "
-Alex Webb, Client
"Holly sold 2 houses for us in the past 3 months. The first was sold on the first weekend (first open house). The second took about two weeks before we had an offer. Quick & simple."
-Greta DeWitt, Client
"We had a very good experience. Very nice. I will use her again and recommend her. We sold in 2 hours. Our buyer was terrible and she handled them well. "
-Diane Butterfield, Client
"Holly recently helped my siblings and I sell our mom's house who passed away earlier this year. I called her immediately as we have known and worked with her for more than 15 years. Holly's professionalism and integrity are unmatched. We met, listed and sold the house in less than six weeks. If you need a true real estate professional... Holly is your person. "
-Shawn Nunn, Client
"Great job! Experienced Seller's Rep in this instance (She has served in other roles for various family members). I formerly held a RE license but I followed every bit of her advise. I thought her opening listing price was a little high but I trusted her judgement and we were in multiple offers in less than a week! She recommended some repairs and a contractor, I gathered competing bids, her recommendation was the lowest and did excellent work QUICKLY!!"
-Jim Wright, Client
"This is our 2nd sale and 3rd purchase to work with Holly. Her experience and expertise has been very helpful throughout the sale and buying process and saved us $$ and headaches. Most importantly, when bumps in the road have occured (which I'm certain they do in almost every real estate transaction), she has held our hand through it. "
-Terry Hartzog, Client
"Holly and her team are hardworking and a pleasure to work with. At Holly's suggestion, we prepared our house for sale to maximize the price, photos prepared and ready while we searched for a new home to purchase. When our offer was accepted for another home, instantly our home for sale was listed. "
-Greg Newhouse, Client
"Holly has handled several home sales for us. Every experience has gone very smoothly. She is very professional. Holly always addressed our concerns in a timely manner. I would have left 30-40K on the table on our last sale without her advise. "
-Chip Hornbeek, Client
"I've known Holly for more than 20 years and find her to be very professional and knowledgeable. We recently listed my mother-in-law's house and Holly and her team went above and beyond to stage the house. All of their effort paid off and we had an offer within a week. I would highly recommend Holly and her team."
-Chris Hornbeek, Client
"Holly is amazing! Very professional and cares about her clients!!"
-Kim Christoforo, Client
"Wouldn't use anyone else to buy or sell!!! Into our 6th transaction with The Koester Team. Hope I'm done for a while. "
-David and Cathy Neidigh, Client
"Professionals from start to finish, love working with the Koester Team. "
-Mary Sprague, Client
"Holly and Stefanie went out of their way to make our home buying experience as easy as possible and made sure we were taken care of each step of the way. In such a tough market for buyers, I couldn't be happier with the level of service we received. Thanks Koester Team!"
-Kristen Marler, Client
"Even in a tough market, Holly and Stefanie found us a fantastic house at a great price. There were quick, professional, friendly, and an all around great team to work with. My wife and I are so happy that we went with them and we will recommend them to anyone. "
-Rinn Marler, Client
"Holly and Stefanie, and the entire Koester Team are real estate professionals who have ethics, expertise, energy, and enthusiasm. My husband and I highly recommend them! They put their heart into their work, and they spend time to do things right for both buyers and sellers---- a great team, truly. "
-Judy Vieira, Client
"I cannot speak enough to the fantastic job Holly did for us! We just moved into our new home after a difficult process of having to offload our previous house that was in need of numerous repairs. With Holly's expertise and connections, we were able to jump every hurdle that was thrown our way, and her strength and positive spirit saved my sanity. I trusted her from day 1, and she never let me down. I highly, highly recommend her and her team! "
-Heather Arterburn, Client
"I wouldn't use any other realtor, but Holly. She's always there with answers and info. In the last 5 years she has helped us sell 6 houses. Some were a bit tricky but Holly knew exactly how to smooth out any wrinkles. "
-Janie Peddicord, Client
"We had the best experience searching for our new home. David went over and above considering our new dream home is outside of the DFW area. We received the VIP realtor treatment and were not customers but friends. We will recommend the Koester Team to all friends and family; because we all deserve the VIP treatment."
-Shelly Burmeier, Client
"She did an excellent job!!! She got us our dream home and we love it!!!!"
-Mike Vermillion, Client
"She had our house sold the first days it was on the market for full price! The picture slides looked so good of our house, I had to watch it twice to really believe it was our house. She is very professional and knows how to sell your house. Her whole team works so well together and I really appreciate them all!"
-Lana Frayer, Client
