Offering nearly two decades of sales and marketing experience, Teal Van Eman brings an energy, excitement and warmth that is unparalleled in the Austin market and an asset to Kuper Sotheby's International Realty®. Through her 17+ years of serving Austin building contractors and architects, Teal has forged life-long relationships by demonstrating an unrelenting work ethic and a reputation as the "go-to" person to get results. But more than that, Teal has a keen ability to truly connect with people; her energetic personality draws people toward her; establishing herself in both business and life as someone who can be relied on during challenging times. These qualities produce more than a great Real Estate Professional, they are the qualities of a caring individual who ensures that the needs and desires of her clients are exceeded, without exception.
Although personal interaction with her vast network of friends and associates is important to Teal, she is equally adept at harnessing the power of social media and marketing to ensure that she stays connected and informed in today's digital world. At the same time, Teal understands that while technology can and should be used to bring people closer, it can never substitute for personal contact and the warmth and understanding of one-on-one connection.
Teal has lived in the Clarksville and Tarrytown areas of Austin as well as West Lake Hills over the last 18 years, developing deep roots, strong personal relationships and a fundamental knowledge of quirks, strengths and possibilities of these communities.

A fifth generation Texan born in Fort Worth, Teal is a graduate of Ole Miss (University of Mississippi,) where she was active in the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority.

Teal is not only incredibly knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market, she is unbelievably responsive and her attention to the little details that go into the negotiating process if fabulous. She provides a huge sense of calm in what can oftentimes be a pretty stressful (yet exciting) time. And she is just a wonderful and positive person to deal with to boot. I can't recommend her enough!!!

Teal did a great job in selling a house in an estate. She went above and beyond to coordinate with multiple heirs, making good suggestions for the make ready, finding a painting contractor and also performing some of the make-ready work herself, along with her husband. I would definitely recommend her.

Teal Van Eman is our amazing realtor who focuses on all the details in a timely fashion while understanding the needs of her clients. I highly recommend Teal for future real estate endeavors. Teals understanding of the market and the current areas make her especially resourceful in this challenging market. Teal was superb and timely throughout the entire process from showings to closing.

Teal did an incredible job of selling our house and navigating through multiple sellers while communicating throughout the entire process. She was an asset at closing as well and again, her communication was invaluable. I would recommend Teal for any real estate transaction in the Austin area. She is a great person to have on your team...excellent and positive in every aspect. Many, many thanks.
Teal was a very helpful real estate agent. We are relocating and had a short period of time to look at houses. She took most of a day to spend with us to drive all over the place so we could check out different areas that we were interested in. Once we found a house Teal was even more helpful with meeting people there and doing little things to make our move easier on us! We can not Thank Teal enough for being our real estate agent!

Teal was exceptionally helpful during our home buying process. Because we were moving from out of town and under severe time constraints, her excellent organizational skills and punctuality accelerated our effort immensely. She is very familiar with the area and is a pleasure to deal with. I would strongly recommend her for your next home purchase or sale.

"I watched Teal in action as she prepared the house across the street for showing which wound up selling for an excellent price before it even listed. Fortuitously, I wrote down her name and phone number. I'm so glad I did! A few months later I contracted with Teal to sell my home. Teal's caring resourceful diligence enabled me to close my home within two months. I would not hesitate to recommend Teal to anyone looking to sell or buy a home."

Teal helped my family find a home in a challenging market, with little inventory, in a professional and honest way. She is very dedicated to meeting her client's needs and goes above and beyond what is asked of her...she stocked our refrigerator with snacks and drinks for our move-in day! She met with vendors/trades to get bids for us before we moved in. Teal really walked us through our options with different homes, comparing lifestyle choices and made our decision process very smooth. Our family appreciated Teal's business savvy approach, her honesty, her ability to tell us the pros and cons and what our best investment would be. Teal even drove to Houston to hand deliver our closing papers, and safely transported them back to Austin to ensure a smooth, fast closing! When you're working with Teal, you are working with a professional you can trust! I would highly recommend Teal!

Knowing Teal for several years, we’ve seen the kind of work ethic and “never quit” attitude she brings to the table. When the time was right there was no question - Teal was our realtor, hands down. We knew the kind of priority she gave her clients, and to experience it first hand was phenomenal. We viewed nine homes in a single day, and she was ready to keep going as long as we were. Teal coordinated the sale of our existing residence and the purchase of our new home. She came to our home and gave us helpful tips which gave it that perfect shine for viewing. Just by following her advice, our home was under contract within 24 hours of going live. When looking for our new home, once we chose “the perfect one”, she showed the kind of tenacity we’d seen her have with others. She made sure our offer was the right offer, the best offer, and the offer selected. She worked to make sure that the closing dates and leaseback periods worked for everyone involved. Teal went above and beyond to make it happen. “Deal with Teal” and you win!

Deciding to sell your house can be a difficult decision and process and choosing a realtor can be just as difficult. We were very glad that we chose Teal VanEman. Teal assisted us through the entire process. She worked with us for at least six months before we officially listed our home, discussing how pricing is determined, giving us valuable feedback on what repairs or staging should be completed. We never felt pressure to list by a certain day - or even with her for that matter. However, after we decided to list, she ensured our listing and photography was created and presented in a very professional manner. After the house was advertised, she was always responsive and effectively communicated and coordinated every and all showings. When offers were received, she took all the stress out of the negotiations and escrow period. We highly recommend Teal Van Eman!
