Meet Katie Dochen
Katie Dochen | REALTOR®, MBA, MPAFF, GRI, SRS, Accredited Home Staging Professional®
“I love helping clients re-imagine space and think of other ways to use rooms, nooks, and odd spaces. Many of my clients have asked me to come back and help them arrange the space or even shop for the space for them. Not every REALTOR® has that design eye that I do and I think that sets me apart.”

Katie relates to Austin newcomers, having moved back home three times after stints in New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York. Her absolute favorite thing about the city is the unique vintage homes. She never gets tired of showing classic Austin to clients.
Katie’s favorite neighborhood in Austin is Cherrywood. She has even sold 4 houses on one street! Cherrywood has a charming, vintage appeal in every corner of the neighborhood. You are also within walking distance of several coffee shops and great parks. Cherrywood is also close to UT’s campus and the downtown area. This is a hidden gem of Austin filled with huge trees and mid-century bungalows.

While serving clients takes priority, you can also find Katie engaging around town with organizations like Communities In Schools, Impact Austin, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Austin.

“Katie definitely has a great sense of the market. We were from out of state and needed an agent who could have played the role of being our “boots on the ground”. Katie Dochen definitely played that part well. I would definitely recommend Katie if you’re looking to get a place in Austin.”
“Katie was very transparent and open with us from the very first day explaining what we could expect in the current Austin market and having us prepared for the ride ahead. Very professional, polite and engaging in her communications, she had all the answers we were seeking. Being out of state, she was my go to person and was always available to do showings virtually. She took a great deal of effort to drive to every house and send me detailed videos of every aspect of the property making it seem as though I was there myself. In short, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
“This market is insane, but Katie guided us through the process and helped us get our dream home! She's fun to work with and most importantly, diligent and proactive. She armed us with the knowledge we needed to make the best decisions for us, advised us throughout, and advocated for us when any issues came up. She went above and beyond in so many ways. We ended up with a house we love and can't wait to move into. Highly recommend working with her!
