Meet Kris...

Greetings and thanks for visiting...

I have spent the majority of the last almost three decades serving different aspects of the real estate industry. As a result, I bring well-rounded knowledge and first-rate customer care to every relationship. Whether it is helping a client plan and build the home of their dreams or working with a builder to develop the land for that home, dotting the “i”s and crossing the “t”s in a transaction as a transaction manager, managing commercial property, or even helping a buyer or seller in today’s complex residential real estate market, my goal is to provide the highest level of customer service to the transaction, fulfilling your real estate needs and expectations.

My years of experience lends perfectly to the problem-solving, negotiation, research and relational skills required to best serve you, my client.  This experience coupled with my values helps build an atmosphere of integrity, trust, communication and value. When you work with me, you can expect the most relevant market research and information on properties, provided by my tenacious attention to detail and thirst for data.

If you are looking for a real estate professional to look out for your needs long-term, look no further. My goal is to develop relationships with my clients for the long-haul and become more-attuned to your real estate investment needs as the years go by. My greatest desire in this business is to create long lasting relationships with my clients, fellow brokers, lenders and contractors.

I have been married to my husband Eric since 1991. Our son and daughter live here in the Pacific Northwest and in Texas. We enjoy weekend get-aways, long walks, wine tasting and meeting new people. Additionally, we are avid baseball and volleyball fans! We have lived in the Renton, Kent and Maple Valley areas since 1997.

CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

KIND WORDS FROM MY WONDERFUL CLIENTS

"We found every part of working with Kris very enjoyable.  It only took 1 trip out with Matt for her to understand our style and target the right kind of homes in our search.  She kept us informed and followed up on all commitments - and that is very important to us. We really appreciated her keeping up with the builder when they were slow or late to respond and for looking into the details of the Title and HOA (just to name a few). "

MATT & STACY
 

“We interviewed several realtors before deciding on Kris, and she was amazing. The entire process was seamless. She worked really hard for us, and even went above and beyond on several occasions. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling a home.”

— Jake & Cheryl
 

“Moving 2500 miles across the country couldn’t have been any better thanks to Kris. She is so personable and always willing to help and meet our needs for this transition. She went way beyond and above. I would highly recommend her!!!”

—Kim

“Kris was absolutely wonderful to work with. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and honest. Whenever we had a question She was always there. Very fast responses to emails and phone calls. I would highly recommend her professional expertise. We worked with her for a few months finding the perfect place for us. The market had slowed down for what we were looking for in our price range but she was always pulling new properties that fit our requirements. I cannot say enough how pleased we are to have been able to work with Kris. We wouldn’t have found out home without her.”

Jeremy G.

“Kris made the transition and experience of moving to the area very easy. This fine lady goes out of her way to help the customer in any manner possible. Kris is the true definition of a knowledgeable and trustworthy agent. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Kris is a joy to work with and will always to there to help and support!”

Chris

“Kris did a great job in helping with our search for a home. We relocated in from out of state and had no knowledge of the area prior to arriving. Kris’s knowledge, professional connections, and personality made this a very pleasant experience for us. Kris went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. Kris volunteered to watch our children during several stages of the process to allow my wife and I the time to fully engage in the house searching process. I would definitely recommend Kris to any person or family that is looking for their next home in the Seattle area.”

Brad & Jennifer

“Kris was amazing in our home hunt and truly made it a less stressful experience. She was so attentive to our needs, and also was able to offer a ton of additional knowledge based on her experience in building construction. She was creative in helping us look for homes in a market where not much was available, even offering to send letters out to neighborhoods we were interested in. She’s not pushy and genuinely wanted us to be happy with our home. She was also incredibly flexible and generous with her time to make sure we could see homes quickly after they hit the market, and gathered detailed information from listing agents that helped us know how quickly to move. We would so highly recommend Kris to anyone wanting both knowledge about homes and great service in finding the perfect place. We love her!”
