StarPointe Realty Central Texas Testimonials

Derrick Matthews is wonderful, he was so prompt in returning phone calls, and very patient with us being picky on different houses.

In the end we found the perfect home for us. Derrick still follows up with us now and then to see how things are going. He is such a pleasure to work with.


I asked Christine Keeton how fast could we close on a house because I needed to move into a new home in less than a month.

She told me that they would be able to close on a home in a month if we both did our part. We closed on the house in less than a month and me and my family were able to move in almost soon as we got to Killeen. I was very impressed and happy we were able to close so fast. It was a pleasure having Christine as our real estate agent and will most surely use her again.


Christine Keeton is very hard working, dedicated, and an all around awesome person to work with.

I would work with her again and tell anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell to call her first.


We can not say enough about how great our experience was with Kendra Barger!

This home purchase meant so much more to us than just buying a new house. It was very symbolic of us rebuilding after a very tough two years in our lives. Kendra was more than just our realtor… she was our advocate, our support, our best resource, and a true friend. We ran into to so many unknowns in the selling and building process and we always felt like we were in the best hands. My gazillion questions were always met with the most detailed answers. Kendra always made it clear that our best interest was her goal. It NEVER felt like it was about the money and I appreciate that SO much because unfortunately we've experienced that with a previous realtor. We LOVE Kendra and appreciate her sincere dedication to her clients. She'll always hold a dear part of our heart and will remain at the top of our thoughts when we hear anyone asking about a realtor.

I would like to let everybody know how pleased my wife and I were with Jim Lapid.

I have know Jim for a short amount of time when I mentioned that I was looking for a house to buy. I provided him with that we were looking for and the location which were very restrictive. Jim located several houses for us in a very short amount of time. After looking for about a month he located the house that we ended up buying. Jim recommended a lender who was also outstanding. We gave Jim a deadline for closing and after dealing with some minor issues dealing with the seller we closed on time. After having several issues in the past with buying a house this went perfect. We are glad we chose Jim to work with during this purchase and recommend him if you are in the market to purchase a home.

When my wife and I decided to sell our home and buy a new home we knew it wasn't going to be easy.

With many homes in our neighborhood for sale or rent we were skeptical if we would be able to sale. We then contracted with Jim Lapid of Starpointe Realty and he exceeded our expectations and sold our home in just over a week for the full list price and we were on our way to looking for our dream home. Jim quickly lined up many new homes for us to look at but we soon realized we wanted something tailor made for us. Jim then set us up with a custom builder and with his guidance and attention to detail we are now the proud owners of a custom built home for us. Although we've heard many horror stories of selling, buying and building a home, Jim Lapid made the entire experience pleasurable and we couldn't have been happier to have him represent us.

House hunting can be pretty exciting, but it is not always the most pleasant.

When my husband and I purchased our first home, I felt like we rushed into it without thinking ahead. The house is a bit on the smaller side for a growing family, however it was perfect for just the both of us at the time. Now, we are currently in the process of searching for a new home to accommodate our family’s needs. The thought of having to juggle between two homes was indeed stressful. Luckily, we had Jim Lapid to help us throughout the entire process. This time around, more research was done before making our final decision. So, we went ahead and gave Jim a list of everything we wanted in the new home. Pleased to say, Jim gladly met all our expectations, along with extra incentives. He worked closely with a rental company to get our first house occupied, and also set a closing date for the second one within a short amount of time. Jim is absolutely someone you can rely on. He walked us through each and every step, and appeared in every single meeting that we had with the builder. He was very persistent in reaching our projected deadline. If you are looking for a realtor who genuinely wants to provide the best customer satisfaction, treats you like family, and is proactive, then Jim is the perfect guy for you. I promise, you will not be disappointed.


Carissa Duran is very motivated and it shows because she cares about those whom she works with every day.

Carissa is the most helpful of all the individuals I have met in many years. She is enthusiastic about what she does even when it is scut work. She is the exception to the rule. Great person and Realtor. They don't make them any better.


Carissa Duran is one of the most honest and trustworthy persons I have ever met in my entire life.

She comes from great parents and it shows through her actions and way of life. In this time of world trials and tribulations it's refreshing to see such a young girl have (OLD SCHOOL) values. I highly recommend Carissa for all real estate transactions you may have.


Carissa Duran was awesome.

Took time to find out what we were looking for and built us a great list of properties to look through. She was helpful and not pushy! Answered all our questions and worked hard to find us the best deal. We would definitely use her services again and refer her to friends and family.


Carissa Duran is the most honest and efficient Realtor that I have ever dealt with.

She is very organized and listens to exactly what you are looking for in a property. Can't say enough good things about using Carissa to find a house!


I wanted to thank Jim Lapid for an excellent experience working with him in looking for and buying the perfect home for my family.

I thank him for being patient with us as we looked at various homes. We did have a contract on a home in Spanish Oaks that we were hopeful for, however the sellers did not feel the need to take our offer seriously. He worked on trying to obtain a response from the sellers, to no avail, and he continued to press on to find us the right home. The D.R. Horton home we did purchase ended up being a blessing, as Jim requested the builder included many upgrades at his request. His persistence paid off, as the builder agreed to our terms. Also, he did not pressure us at any moment to make any choices we might regret later. We are happy with our new home and it's location. We will definitely be referring clients to Jim and Starpointe Realty in the future.

When my boyfriend and I were looking to purchase a new house we hadn’t spoken with any realtors yet.

Three people from work used Jim Lapid and highly recommended him. They all said he found them exactly what they wanted and made the home buying process super easy. One of my co-workers said he walked them through every step. Since Jim Lapid came so highly recommended from trusted employees I contacted him and set up a meeting. During the meeting I explained what I was looking for and Jim went right to work to start showing some properties. At first my boyfriend and I wanted to purchase some land and build a house on it. Jim showed us a few properties that were for sale and talked to us about builders and house options. The more research we did and the more floor plans we looked at, it began to seem it was going to be too expensive to purchase land and build a house. After we voiced our concern about the price to Jim he showed us a piece of property that already had a new house built on it for a very reasonable price. When my boyfriend and I saw the house we immediately fell in love with it. The lot of land along with the house were exactly what we wanted. After seeing the house my boyfriend and I told Jim that was the house for us and Jim went right to work putting together an offer. Jim offered great idea’s to put in the offer, and those ideas’ ended up saving us approximately $3,000. Long story short Jim went back and forth with the house builder a couple of times but got us a great deal on our house. Jim stayed with us every step of the process and even assisted us a few times after the house was purchased. During the house closing process time became an issue because I was selling and closing on one house while I was also trying to close on the house I was purchasing. I really wanted to get into the new house ASAP but it wasn’t looking like we were going to be able to close on the date we wanted to. Mostly because the house I was selling had a few hiccups with the buyers. I don’t know how Jim did it but he stayed on top of the Mortgage Company and realtors and got us closed on the day we wanted. I still can’t believe he made it happen. My boyfriend and I were on vacation in the Dominican Republic during some of the closing process and Jim was sending us e-mails so we could get documents signed. If you’re looking for a realtor to guide you through the home buying process, Jim Lapid is the man for you. Tell him what you’re looking for and he will offer advice and guidance. With his knowledge and experience Jim will find the house for you and you’ll be glad you met him. Even if you’re not ready to buy just yet Jim can offer you advice to help determine what you’re looking for. Any time I hear someone at work talking about wanting to purchase a house I tell them to use Jim. So far all of my friends and co-workers either have used Jim or are planning on using Jim. Happy House Hunting

Our most memorable moment with Christine Keeton: Her constant hardworking and dedication with a very small time frame to find us a house.

She's very diligent and wonderful to work with. Christine Keeton was absolutely awesome, she really pulled through for us when we had a short time frame and being first time home buyers we were nervous. Through her hardworking and dedication she helped to calm our nerves and also find us a wonderful home!
