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.

-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 was instrumental in helping us understand our needs and then buy our current home. She continues to be a very important reference for general real estate questions, not to mention her recommended contractor directory which we receive regularly and to which we often refer.
Kristen has been my real estate agent for more than ten years. She worked with me closely in buying our current home in the Magnolia area of Seattle and my previous home in Ballard which was the best investment I've ever made. She has also continually supported my wife and I with advice on market conditions, home values, and service referrals for home repair and improvements. She is a very knowledgeable professional and also a pleasure to work with. We plan to work with her for our future real e...see more
Kristen did a great job walking us through the entire process as first time home buyers. She responded to questions quickly and would regularly meet in person when we felt particularly worried or confused about something. We bought new construction and she stayed in contact and helped us non-stop for the 8 months from when we purchased it to when we finally closed and key got the keys. Kristen was referred to me by several coworkers and I will refer her to more!
Kristen is an expert real estate professional and her experience shows. She knows the Seattle market and was so patient with us as we explored what we wanted in a house and learned about different neighborhoods. She is level-headed and gave us so much guidance, both factual and emotional. We plan to use Kristen again for any our of real estate needs!
Can't say enough good things about Kristen! She was exceptionally patient with us as firstime buyers in a very competitive market. It took us over 9 months to find our home and she never ceased to be optimistic and determined. When we finally found the right property, she helped us get an incredible deal. She is knowledgable and frank in her assessments, and provides the highest quality customer service you can imagine! She manages to somehow always immediately respond to texts, calls and email...see more
Kristen is an active listener. She not only took note of our initial "shopping list" as we described what we were looking for in a home, she continued to listen to our comments to refine our choices. She made the homebuying experience delightful and low stress. As we drove to the house which we later purchased, she told us it was the house for us and she was right.
I can not say enough good things about Kristen! As a first-time home buyer I was in way over my head. Kristen took the time to explain to me the nature of the market, what to expect and how everything worked. She never pressured me and was always there when I had a question. She spent the time to learn what I liked. Then she set me up with emails of homes that met my personal criteria. She showed me many houses and taught me many things. If I asked her a question I knew without a doubt I would g...see more
When you are a first time home buyer it can be very scary and overwhelming at first. However, from the moment we met Kristen Cramer I knew that we were in good hands. What impressed me the most was her knowledge for every aspect of the home buying process from start to finish. Her constant attention made you feel as if you were her only client... which we knew was not the case! She always answered her questions with her honest and professional opinion.
I would recommend Kristen to anyone who...see more
Kristen is the ultimate professional. She has a superlative work ethic. Our family has come to rely on her on more than one occasion with regard to selling our home and assessing its value. Kristen is trustworthy and gives insightful feedback while getting the job done.
Our experience with Kristen over the last two years demonstrated her professional skills as well as her ability to adapt to all of the idiosyncrasies of a couple who had not purchased or sold a home in a very long time. Kristen was excellent at dealing with our issues as they were raised, but more importantly was able to educate us on the current market and all of the changes that have occurred over the last several years.
Her patience and skills at coming up with new ways of promoting our h...see more
Kristen is the best!!! I honestly think we would not have got the house we wanted if she had not been involved in the process. In such a competitive market you need to have the best professionals on your side or you will be lost
Knowledgeable, committed to getting us a house. She was out with us every weekend and we knew she was fighting for us to find the right house. We went from the south end to the north and she always showed us a variety of homes.
Kristen Cramer is the epitome of a Woman of Rectitude! I would highly recommend her in any situation.... You can trust her integrity , knowledge and honesty...... Plus she has a whimsical sense of humor.....She recently handled the sale of my house.. It was an unbelievable smooth experience.... Thanks to Kristen..... And to be quite honest with you....... It was not the money generated by the sale...... It was my real estate experience with Kristen that was the highlight..... I am sure you wil...see more
Kristen helped our family buy at least two homes. She is the best! I highly recommend her. If you want a crackerjack real estate agent who will work hard, she's the one for you!
As a real estate professional who has been in business for over 20 years, Kristen Cramer brings a wealth of experience to home buying or selling. When I purchased my home, she met with me beforehand to assess what particulars I was looking for, and then we toured houses that met my criteria. This was so helpful and time efficient for me.
I also recommended Kristen to neighbors who were selling their home, and they interviewed four other agents before selecting her. They raved about her marketi...see more
Buying a home is exciting, but it can be stressful as well. Buying one 3,000 miles from where you live has the potential for being 3,000 times as stressful. Fortunately, working with Kristen was fully exciting and not at all stressful.
We were buying a condo as a second home near our daughter and her family, and so we started with Kristen's request for our priorities. We made two trips to Seattle. On our first trip, Kristen showed us around various neighborhoods, and showed us several condos...see more
We are writing to give our highest recommendation for Kristen Cramer. We have worked with Kristen since 2005 and have been extremely impressed with her market knowledge, customer service and responsiveness.
Kristen helped us through three house transactions: the sale of two homes and the purchase of one.
On the sale of our Ballard home, Kristen was very thorough in her market analysis. She advised us on a fair market price design to entice potential buyers to visit the property. This str...see more
As someone who has had the pleasure of working with Kristen Cramer as both a buyer and a seller, I would like to take this opportunity to assure that you are in good hands. She handled everything efficiently and professionally, which was a great relief since I was a first time buyer on a tight budget and had worried I'd find the home buying experience stressful.
During my search for a home, Kristen was both patient and thorough. She showed me those properties that met my criteria, and Kristen...see more
