Buying a home isn’t simply about paying the lowest price. And selling a home isn’t just about getting the price you asked. Along the way, there are fees, taxes, and numerous other costs that can impact the bottom line of your home purchase or sale.
I am trained specifically to help you understand the marketplace, negotiate successfully on your behalf, and get a clear picture of the proposed transaction. The result is a more rewarding experience, whether you are buying, selling, or both.
My values as your agent set my service apart from the rest:
-Outgoing, energetic, and at your service.
-Open, clear and honest communication is the foundation of my business.
-Clear explanation of market conditions to ensure that my clients are “sales ready”.
-I do what I say I will on time, that’s a guarantee.
-Working to take the stress out and put the fun into the real estate process.
-I have worked in real estate since 1985, and that experience is ready to work for you.
-High tech/high touch, combining the latest technologies with a proven personal touch.
-I am a Certified Residential Specialist.
-I am an Accredited Seller Representative.
-I am an Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE).
-Neighborhood savvy for Seattle and its surrounding areas.
-Ability to anticipate and manage potential risks to save you, my client, undue hassle.
Kristen Cramer was my Realtor during the sale of my old home and purchase of my new home. This was my first experience conducting a concurrent buy/sell and I needed a lot of coaching along the way. She was the consummate professional, providing expert guidance at every turn, making the experience much smoother than I could have ever anticipated.
When I first met Kristen, she came to my house prepared and ready to answer all of my questions about the selling and buying process. Her market ana...see more
We hired Kristen to help us purchase a home. I found her to be a very warm person who really values her clients. I felt she went the extra mile to always be responsive whenever we had questions, and did a great job accommodating our schedules and requests. She had a good knowledge of the neighborhoods in Seattle and the characteristics and caveats for them. I would highly recommend Kristen for her service! Especially first time home buyers can trust her to put them first, and know that they will...see more
Kristen did such an incredible job helping us find our home. As first time home buyers, Seattle's crazy market was intimidating and overwhelming. Kristen made it easy to understand the home buying process as well as being there for us every step of the way. She went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met, as well has being flexible when our schedules got crazy. I recommend her to everyone I know. If/when it becomes time to sell our home and find a new one, she will be the first on...see more
Kristen helped me buy my first home and I couldn't have asked for a better agent. She was very knowledgeable, organized, and bent over backwards to meet my needs. The price range I was looking in was very low, but she still treated me like her #1 client. She is very personable and made the home buying process as stress-free as possible. I will definitely use Kristen again for my real estate needs.
Kristen did an incredible job of partnering with us in the process of selling our home. From initial assessment to the final negotiations, she was there every step of the way.

We were searching for a Realtor to sell our townhouse in the Seattle market and read the reviews for Kristen Cramer. The reviews could not be more accurate, she is the consummate professional, knows the market and kept us informed all the way through the process. Kristen returned phone calls and e-mails promptly, evenings or weekends, it didn't matter! She brought us up to speed on the markets, trends and other properties to make sure we could see the big picture then guided us through to clo...see more
Overall- Kristen is amazing! She's extremely knowledgeable, professional, well-connected, ethical, responsive, and she's funny! What more could you want?
Kristen first helped us sell our house in Seattle. We had lived in the house for 17 years, and Kristen was knowledgeable about what things we should "fix" to get the best price. She also had referrals for people who could do the work. This was during a crazy hot market in Seattle, so finding people with openings in their schedules to spruce ...see more
Please consider this as our letter of recommendation for Kristen Cramer. She assisted us with the purchasing of our first house in 2000, so when it came time for us to sell and buy again, we called her. We have been very impressed with the services she has provided us. We felt like she was truly looking out for our best interests and came up with a lot of creative ideas.
We will ask Kristen to assist us with any of our future real estate needs and would not hesitate to recommend her to our f...see more
Kristen is very good at what she does. She goes that extra mile for the clinet. We live in Longview, Wa and she helped us buy property in Seattle, WA. were she is from. It went very smoothly using internet, e-mail and phone.
Kristian has been antiquated with my family for a long time and has been exceptional in her professionalism. She was extremely helpful and her experience was very valuable for a quick great sale. Got more then asking price. She was most helpful in her suggestion to get the house ready for sale. It sold in just a few days. Great Job from a experienced professional.
Kristen Cramer is a true professional. I have hired her on more than one occasion and I am always impressed with her ability to provide a service above and beyond her peers. I recommend her without hesitation.
Kristen listened to our goals and preferences. She used her knowledge of the area to get past our own faulty assumptions (such as 'all of Bellevue is too rich for us.') Then she guided us through the process without pressuring us to make the decisions she might have preferred.
Kristen made my first time home buying experience fun and enjoyable. She never pressured me to purchase anything than the perfect home. She was quite literally with me every step of the way. Her passion and knowledge shine. I cannot endorse her enough. She is first and last person I will go to for real estate.
We had a great experience when we bought a house with Kristen in 1999 and she worked hard when we sold our house in early 2004, especially as we only had a two month window to sell before heading out of Seattle on an extended trip. When the time came to buy again in Seattle, we did not hesitate to return to Kristen for our real estate needs. Kristen worked hard to find a house which was handicapped accessible, within driving distance from our daughter's school, had plenty of office space, had a ...see more
Kristin Cramer was the Real McCoy! I was offered very professional advice, with just a little wiggle room when I felt strongly about something. She was timely, which I really respected. The guidance before, during and after the sale of our home was steady and there was very little drama due to her level head and, probably, all those years of experience. I felt as if the other realtors respected her and gave serious offers. We had a tricky sale, and yet our house sold in one week , with fou...see more
I can unreservedly recommend Kristen to anyone in the markets I have been in. And I have no reason to believe she is no less capable in any other greater Seattle market. She helped me sell and buy two pairs of homes. For the first sale and purchase she came on recommendation from friends. The second time I did a careful vetting of three agents/ agencies. All properties were essentially in NW Seattle. Phinney Ridge to Ballard in 2001 and Ballard to Richmond Beach, Shoreline in 2011. Even in this...see more
Kristen obviously recognizes a central axiom of good customer service: if you focus on providing great service, the rest (i.e. the commission) will take care of itself. She was approachable, knowledgeable (especially about the area, which wasn't on her home turf, demonstrating to me her overall familiarity with the Seattle-Tacoma real estate market in general, and the area where we were searching in particular), responsive to our questions and focused on helping us find exactly the sort of hous...see more
