My partner and I spent the first half of the year in the amiable company of Kristen Cramer. Almost every free moment through winter and spring was spent in communication with Kristen, whether the three of us were running across town in Kristen's hybrid to look at homes or sending and responding to a flurry of late night emails. Every step of the way Kristen was patient, informative, and incredibly kind. Her extensive knowledge of the area and the ins and outs of the purchasing process put us at ...see more
Kristen has made miracles happen back when we had bidding wars. I got a house that had 8 other offers, Kristen made sure my offer stood out.
I have bought one house and have sold one as well as sold a condo with Kristen. When it comes time to sell, Kristen gets the other agents to preview the property prior to listing, to make sure the price is right. Really knows the neighborhoods, and can smell mold a mile away!
Working with Kristen to sell our home in Seattle was a great experience. Not only is she knowledgable about the market, but she took the time to explain to us the ins and outs of this monumental project since we were first time home sellers. Once we cleared the place out, she took charge of getting it ready for the market where it sold in less than two weeks! We highly recommend Kristen for her energy, experience and expertise.
Kristen is a fabulous agent and I have recommended her to three of my friends who also have had great experiences using her. In 2001 she helped us buy our first house, and in 2009, in a very tough market helped us successfully place a contingent offer on our new home and sell our first home. She is responsive, professional and fun to work with! We will use her again, but hopefully not for a long time since we love our house.
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.
Kristen has helped us buy and sell a number of homes in the Seattle area. We recently purchased a fixer after reviewing hundreds of potential properties. She is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough agent. We were especially grateful this time for her assertive, yet sensitive and thoughtful negotiations that left both parties feeling good about the transaction. She's one of the best, a great person and we wouldn't use anyone else!!
Kristen is by far the best agent that I've ever worked with. She is knowledgeable, efficient, and thorough, and most of all, I really appreciate her high integrity and honesty as well as her great sense of humor! She has the unique ability to build relationships that feel like true partnerships. I recommend her highly!
Kristen is very knowledgeable and will try to help you in any way she can. She helped me find a home and went to many places even though I knew very little about home buying. She was able to answer all of my questions and make sure that I felt comfortable buying the home I had. She even helped me save a few thousand dollars by helping me write better offer letters.
Kristen was tireless in finding buyers, holding a fruitful open hours, and then, she helped me with negotiations to find and buy a condo.
Kristen did an excellent job of listening to our needs and working within our budget, needs, and wants requirements. She was very professional and easy to get along with and was willing to work with our schedule to show us a good amount of options each week as things became available.
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.
- Recommended replacing light fixtures, recommended a style, went to home depot to purchase, then delivered to the house so I could install after work.
- Thorough recommendations for updating/upgrading/beautifying yard, home exterior, and home interior.
- The contractors (flooring, staging) that they recommended were top notch. Cynthia and Kristen helped let the contractors into the house while I was at work.
- The strategy for scheduling listing, showing, reviewing/accepting offer was superb...see more
Kristen has a wealth of knowledge from many years of experience and knows the local Seattle residential real estate market well. My wife and I were first time homeowners and relatively new to Seattle. Kristen patiently worked with us and helped us eventually find and buy our dream house. She's open, honest and often gives valuable insights when viewing houses. Overall, she was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend Kristen.
Kristen continues to be an amazing resource, thank you so much for helping with this transaction including a few non-traditional steps due to the circumstances. You ROCK!!!
Kristen was our agent when we bought our first house in 1999. She was also our agent when we sold that house and bought our current house. Kristen provided us with valuable knowledge that met the current real estate market conditions. Kristen is always very professional and was always there when we needed to ask questions. If you are buying or selling a home, Kristen IS the one! Thanks Kristen,
Justin and Amy Craven
Kristen helped us find our home over a six month period in which we looked at over 200 potential homes -- literally. She has the patience of a saint and knows her way around Seattle extremely well. It may not have taken so long if we had actually paid attention to her suggestions on how to bid. Eventually we learned that she does know everything! She found us the perfect home, and we (finally) put together the perfect bid.
We are first time home buyers and really leaned on Kristen to educate us about the process. She was very good at pointing out things to look at in different houses and explaining pros and cons of different types of windows, pipes, etc.
We ended up making an offer on a house where there were a total of 7 bids. She helped us through the pre-inspection process and we consulted her when deciding on our offer. We really have Kristen to thank for getting us our house. We learned that there were sever...see more
Kristen was outstanding to work with. She knew the market, she knew the process, she was very responsive, and she worked very hard for me, both in selling my house, and helping me buy one. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Kristen. I recommended her to both my brother and sister, and they were both happy with their experiences as well.
