    Sold a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $300K.
    Kristin did an amazing job she was reliable, and always available to make appointments. If she could not meet she would just answer questions over the phone. She was quick when we were ready getting it on the market and excellent at helping me stage the home with her eye for detail. We sold in one week and the process went very smooth from start to finish. Kristin is very knowlegable in her profession and had done her homework on the market analysis. She also called and checked with us for about a year before we decided to move she would send little gifts just to let us know she was still available when we were ready to sell. At closing she sent packinng boxes at her cost which were very helpful as we were moving to Florida. I would highly recommend her to anyone excellent professional in the Remax group also close to our home for closing.

    Kristen was very possitive and knowledgeable! She new the area and industry very well and gave us fantastic advice through the whole process. She was always checking on us and more than willing on multiple occasions to get in our corner and fight for us if we were having issues.

    Bought a condo home in 2018 for approximately $175K.
    Kristen helped my wife and I find our weekend/summer getaway home. We looked all over western Michigan and Kristen worked diligently for us, always giving us options and places to look at until we found what we wanted. 9 months later we are so happy with what we saw and ultimately purchased.

    Bought a condo home in 2018 for approximately $150K.
    Kristin was a good listener. She connected me with the type of home I was looking for. When I got to her last minute to offer a bid, she took care of it right away. Then she offered good advice with negotiating back and forth on the price.
    Kristin also found the answers to questions I had relating to the home inspection and taxes.
    I would definitely recommend her to people that I know.

    Bought and sold a singleFamily home in 2018 for approximately $150K in West Grand, Grand Rapids, MI.
    Kristin was awesome to work with. Very patient (which was very important to me), knowledgeable of the business, great negotiation skills, friendly, easy to work with and great at given advice as an opinion. She was always ready to answer calls and explain important things that I didn't understand, and being a first time buyer, I knew nothing. To summarize, working with Kristin was fun and effective and made the home searching and buying journey very seamless.

    Let her help you get a great home like she did for me :)

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2017 for approximately $150K.
    Kristin is everything and more in what you want for a realtor. She is punctual. She walked us through every step. She was quick and thorough in responding to our every question and every inquiry. She did a great deal of research for us. I am certain she worked long hours on our behalf. She has great interpersonal skills and I am certain those skills worked to our benefit in the negotiation process. I could cover much more. I doubt there is a better realtor out there.

    Bought a condo home in 2017 for approximately $150K.
    Kristin is a friendly, hardworking, and responsive agent who went above and beyond in her services. We looked at 10+ places in less than a month, and eventually found a great home in Holland within 3. She is new to the industry, but is enthusiastic and willing to find answers. I have already recommended her to others who are enjoying their experience as well. You won't be disappointed if you go with Kristin!
