Spend an afternoon walking through Kay and Dan Bowen’s garage, and you might think you are visiting a car museum spanning the golden years of automobiles. From the wooden wheeled 1919 and the classic 1956 Chevrolets to the 1926 Ford Model T street rod and the fully restored 1937 Plymouth, it’s quite a collection. Yet none is more meaningful to Kay than the custom lavender 1957 Chevy wagon. Dan will take credit for the restoration and upkeep of the other cars, but the wagon will always be Kay’s pride and joy.

Throughout your home purchase or sale, you can count on Kay Bowen to bring A Classic Approach to Real Estate built on care, quality and commitment. Count on her to help you make the most of your next move. Contact her today.

Testimonials

“If you find yourself in the position of having to sell your home quickly, there is no one better than Kay Bowen.  We were faced with the necessity of having to quickly sell our home.  Having been through the selling process before, we were dreading the whole thing. We saw Kay’s sign at several homes in our neighborhood and decided to meet with her. We were so impressed with Kay’s explanation of the process and what participation would be required by us.  After completion of the minor requirements that we had to implement, we were surprised  at the arrival of a professional photographer to our home. The photographs taken and included in the listing were so detailed in showing the attributes of our home that we were ready to buy instead of sell!  We received a offer within 7 days of the listing.  We accepted the offer and Kay was in constant contact with us  during the whole process of the sale. If you are listing your home, you cannot go wrong with Kay.  We would recommend her to anyone.”

– Robert of Austin, Tx


“We enjoyed working with you to rent a house on Great Britain and buy a home in Travis Country.  Your attention to our needs was exemplary, and your knowledge of the housing market here extensive.  And you like cats and old cars. Tough to beat that in a realtor!”

– Catherine


“Kay gave me exceptional service when I was selling & buying a home. She was able to answer any questions I had & made me feel at ease on everything on selling my house to buying my new one. If I ever move again she will be the first to be called.”

– Janet


‘Rightsizing’ our home was a difficult decision and process for my husband and me.  Although the entire process lasted more than a year, Kay Bowen was successful in selling our empty-nest home of over 3,000 sq. ft. and helping us to locate and buy a home that fits our current needs.  She worked tirelessly on our behalf.  I recommend Kay Bowen without reservation to anyone in need of a skilled, knowledgeable, dedicated and detail-oriented realtor with a great smile and caring attitude.”

– Mike & Brenda of Buda, TX


“I just wanted to thank you very sincerely for your assistance, invaluable professionalism and, most importantly, your kindness and understanding during the recent sale of my parent’s home in South Austin.  My parents had lived in that home for over thirty five years…You understood my attachment to the home but you still were able to help me understand the business side of the listing, contract details and the sale…I appreciate your great pictures that were published…A picture is worth a thousand words, they say – so, this must have been at least tens of thousands!!  Once again, thank you very much for walking us through this process.  You are definitely in the right business and I will certainly recommend you as a Realtor always!”

– Judy of Austin, TX


“We recently had the pleasure to work with Kay Bowen of Sky Realty, Inc.  Kay was both professional and friendly anytime we had an occasion to talk or meet with her.  She was prompt to respond to our calls and our needs, and to have the answers, or research them for us, whenever we had inquiries. Within one day of signing our contract with Kay to place our home in Leisure Woods on the market, it was on multiple listing and had pictures available.  Within two days we had clients coming to our home, and a day later a signed contract!  In today’s economy, we had no idea what to expect in the length of time our home might sell.  Kay helped us to price it right, advertise well and truthfully, and sell it in record time. We would recommend Kay as a realtor for anyone seeking someone to represent them in the sale of their property!”

– Phil & Nancy of  Buda, TX


“When I first contacted Kay I gave her a price range and said that I was looking for a condo.  We looked at several.  I told her that I was moving to Austin in the winter to be near my son and his family.  She then showed me a unit about ten minutes from where he lived.  That unit was under contract but I got to see the complex and a unit in it.  I liked that complex better than the others that I had seen.  For the next five months she contacted me (I was living in Indiana) and sent me e-mails of pictures of the places in that complex when they went on the market.  She even took pictures in addition to the ones that were on the internet.  I bought the third one that she showed me.  Having spent part of one winter and one whole one I can say that I think it was the best one in Austin for my circumstances.  Kay in my opinion the best real estate agent in Austin.”

– Dorothy G.


“Kay was a great help when I first moved to town.  She showed me rental properties all around town and really welcomed me to Austin.  She will be the first call I make when I get back in the market to buy.”

– Marc


“Kay Bowen has been my realtor for several years,  She has helped me sell a house  I inherited, buy a house for investment purposes, get the house leased  and get another house leased.  I have been very pleased with the results.  I could not ask for a better realtor.”

– John F.


“My husband Paul and I had some basic criteria for a house: no HOA!, no neighbors on top of us, room for a pool table.  We had houses all around the outskirts of Austin that we were interested in.  Kay was a trooper, and took us to all of them.  It was a great adventure and the best time I have ever had house hunting.  She has such great patience and a great sense of humor.  She guided us through the process with the least amount of stress possible. This was the fourth house I’ve bought, and definitely the best experience.”

– Pat and Paul


“Kay was terrific!  I appreciated how well she listened to our list of criteria for a new home and then showed us only those places that met our requirements.  She was very helpful in navigating all the home-buying paperwork, which was especially important since we were closing our deal long-distance.  Kay was also a wonderful guide to Austin for us newcomers, giving us loads of helpful tips on locating essential services, finding good restaurants, and understanding the local culture.  During our tours around town, she was unfailingly good-humored, friendly, yet professional.  I recommend Kay wholeheartedly!”

– Katherine & Walter of Austin, TX


“Kay Bowen did an outstanding job selling my home.  She was always very responsive and available when I needed her.  She put forth an extra level effort to market my home that is not seen with other real estate agents.  Her exceptional organization skills while handling multiple buyers and backup opportunities helped maximize the sales price of my home.  She is a wonderful person and very easy to work with.  I recommend choosing Kay Bowen as your realtor.”
