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...
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 ...
Kristen has been my real estate agent for more than ten years. She worked with me closely in buying my current house in the Ballard area of Seattle which has been 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 on buying our next property as well.
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 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.
As a first time homebuyer in an economic downturn, it was hard to make the jump to home ownership from renting. I had a lot to learn about the process and the commitment. Kristen Cramer had helped my mom get into a home when we had first moved to Washington. I chose Kristen after seeing how she had kept my mom’s best interests paramount. Kristen understood my taste almost immediately. It was so nice to have confidence in letting Kristen do the looking for me. When we were at properties, Kri...
The Board of Directors of ICA-USA wish to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your excellent service recently in successfully selling our unique office condo property in Seattle. The high quality of your work was the subject of an upbeat discussion this weekend at our December Board meeting. Your advice and counsel in marketing our property proved insightful and right-on-the-money. Your patience and persistence in promoting and re-promoting our property made all the difference. In the end,...
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...
Kristen has helped me both buy and sell more than one house. She has great knowledge of the real estate market and is wonderful to work with. Highly professional in all of her dealings. I plan to work with her again in the future.
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...
After an extensive search for a realtor to list and sell my Seattle home, I selected Kristen Cramer from Lake & Company. This turned out to be a wonderful decision. I cannot praise enough her hard work and commitment to help me sell my home. Pricing your home for sale is a critical step and Kristen did market research that far exceeded what I received from Windermere and Remax, the other 2 agencies I was considering. Once we correctly priced the house for maximum profit, Kristen worked with ...
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.
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...
Kristen has a detailed knowledge of neighborhoods and things to look for when buying or selling a home. She worked tirelessly to meet our demanding needs and was huge asset as we negotiated complicated real estate processes. We've worked with her three times and recommended her to others.
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...
