I really enjoyed working with Kristen on my own condo purchase back in 2010 that I worked with her a second time to help with my brother's purchase a year later. I love how she calls things as she sees it to help give me, the buyer, new perspectives and viewpoints when considering a property. She has never been pushy or rigid and has always been very communicative.
As a first time home buyer, I really appreciated her patience and thoroughness in explaining all of the steps/processes/contingencies/
When my brother was looking for a place, I called up Kristen and went through the whole process again, knowing that she would always be there to support me and my brother, give us sound advice, and just be a pleasure to work with!

My fiance and I met her just over a year ago at an open house, and decided on the spot that we wanted her as our realtor. This week we are moving in to our dream home!
Here are the five best things about working with Kristen:
* She made us feel like we were her only clients. Not only that, but we felt like the most awesome, valued clients ever.
* I would mention a house in passing, and next thing you know, Kristen had called the listing agent and had all sorts of extra information about it.
* She really took the time to listen to us and absorbed what was important to us and made it her mission.
* Kristen proactively searched out houses that she knew we would like and brought us opportunities that weren't even on the market yet.
* Throughout the crazy process, Kristen remained a calm voice of reason and trusted advisor. She is so knowledgeable and simply a pleasure to be with.
I cannot recommend Kristen highly enough. She is the best!

As a first time home buyer, I had some trepidation about taking the plunge into home ownership. After talking with family, friends and colleagues about the necessary steps, I began the process of meeting agents to discuss my representation and how they could help guide me thru the process. It became obvious after meeting Kristen for the first time that she was the perfect agent for me to work with. Kristen has an encyclopedic knowledge of the local market, she had access to a variety of resources, she gave sound advice and feedback about each building we viewed together AND she was extremely efficient and fun to work with. When we finally had identified the home I wanted to bid on, she negotiated a discounted price as well as other credits.
My escrow went smoothly and thru it all, I received constant communication on our progress. I would recommend Kristen's services without reservation to anyone who is in need of expert Real Estate consultant here in San Francisco.

Kristen is a great agent. She has been nothing but a pleasure to deal with. Her local knowledge is unsurpassed. She is super friendly yet professional and has been nothing but a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Kristen for all your home hunting needs.

Kristen is really great! She talked us through the whole process letting us know that her main goal was to get us a place that we would be thrilled to have for several years. Not only that, she always reminded us to consider future resale value as well. I think Kristen was most impressive once we decided to put through an offer. She took the lead on everything! Every step of the way she would explain things for us, give us our options... and let us make the decisions. Going through escrow was so amazingly stress-free for us because of her. Kristen is very knowledgeable, responsive, detailed, efficient, patient …and overall a great agent! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a place in the city!

Kristen is a really knowledgeable agent. She has been helping me find a new home in South Beach for the past few months. She's been touring me around to all the new developments and I have found her insight to be really helpful. While I still haven't found a home yet, I'm confident that she will be able to find me the best place at the best price. Plus, she's been really supportive and I love her SMART car!
