"Kristin was amazing. Not only did she really do a great job of filtering out the styles we liked to make the search more time efficient, she also thought about things we overlooked when it came to buying a home. You can tell she really cares by the questions she asks, making sure you get EVERYTHING you want but also not extending you beyond your budget like many realtors do. Once we picked out the perfect home, that is where we saw having Kristin made a huge difference. She has a certification in negotiations which was very obvious. She knew exaxctly what to say and do to for our benefit. We got the house for 25k less than what I was willing to purchase it for and the exact closing month we wanted. She saved us so much time with her search expertise and money with her negotiation expertise. AMAZING!"

"I am a first-time investor. Kristin was patient and diligent in finding an investment property that I was looking for. She is always pleasant and courteous. I will be working with her in future investment and recommend to my friends who will be looking to sell or buy property."

"Kristin did a great job when we wanted to rent a new house because she managed to negotiate with the landlord to include a few clauses in the contract we where very interested. She negotiated even a reduction of the price that the landlord was not willing to modify at the beginning.
We really recommend Kristin to take care of your new renting/buying house."

"Kristin is a PHENOMENAL realtor to work with!! Not only were we impressed by her knowledge of the market but she has incredibly strong negotiation skills & helped us get the best possible deal in buying our new home! We never felt pushed or rushed in making our decision. It just felt right!

Kristin is articulate, patient, trustworthy and had our best interest no matter how long the process was going to take & how many times we changed our minds. She worked around our hectic schedules by making herself available at all times & on short notice.

My husband & I are truly thankful for her personalized attention to our specific needs. Kristin was patient with us as we were relocating, in the process of selling our home in FL and starting our new home search locally. She guided us through the entire journey, help us to understand what to expect every step of the process. With our young family, we wanted the experience to be positive & seamless and she did just that!

Kristin was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She even offered guidance on local handy personnel for renovations we started shortly after closing on our new home.

Words cannot express how grateful we are to have Kristin as our realtor especially during a stressful time of relocation, starting new jobs, selling our current out-of-state home & finding our next “dream home.”

Kristin is truly a diamond in the rough & one we highly recommend!!"

"My wife and I moved to Illinois just about 3 years ago. We were referred, as total strangers, to Kristin.

We told Kristin that we were looking for a rental and Kristin spent MUCH time organizing and showing us approximately 10 places in the local area. We did not end up choosing one of the places that Kristin showed us, but this is not a review about properties - this is a review about a professional individual.

Kristin was indisposable. Truly. She was methodical and thorough and always pleasant.

You might notice that I'm only reviewing the aspects that my wife and I were able to witness... (we really didn't go through any processing or negotiation, so I'm letting those ratings alone.)

HOWEVER... I will say, I am a methodical and meticulous person myself. I very plainly notice that when watching a person do their work. I have very little doubt that Kristin is capable in all areas of her profession. Its obvious that she loves what she does, and she seems to genuinely care about her clients.

We took notice of that and, in our own way, acknowledged and tried to honor that.

There is little doubt that if we were to look to buy, Kristin would be our one and only call.

Thank you Kristin. You are highly appreciated and we wish you well in your profession."
