Krista was patient answering all our first time buyer questions, prompt to respond to all our email and always available for phone conversations. She is extremely thorough, offers honest opinions and reasonable advice and is a great listener. She demonstrated excellent negotiation and organizational skills by getting the seller to agree to changes after the house received an appraisal lower than the offer price. Then she got us to closing on time despite the last minute negotiation and and unmotivated lender. -07/28/2014 - Eric Swinehart, Zillow Reviewer

Krista is an amazing realtor. She takes her job very seriously and has a way of helping you feel calm and relaxed throughout what can be a stressful time. She is a fantastic communicator and seems to always be available. She responds to calls, texts, and emails very quickly and professionally. When I decided to sell my Portland home, I interviewed several realtors. Krista's attitude and approach made me feel very comfortable. She gave me an idea of what she thought the house would sell for, but, with the changing housing market, was open to listing it higher. After meeting and then signing paperwork, Krista got right to work. She arranged to have photos taken of the house for the fliers, etc. The photos were amazing. They really showed the house and yard beautifully. Krista emailed me options for the flier layout, so that I could decide the final look. She also arranged an open house and gave me suggestions to help the house look it's best. My house was listed in early June, and I received a solid, full priced offer in a week. Krista handled everything perfectly. As inspections were done, work estimates written, and repair addendum produced, Krista helped me stay calm through the stress, and handled almost all of the details for me. She also kept in contact with me about progress with escrow, etc. Honestly, there was no end to the help Krista provided to make this process easy for me. [...] All in all, Krista goes above and beyond for her clients. Without reservation I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.- 08/08/2014 - Jen Reindel, Zillow Reviewer

Krista was absolutely wonderful to work with. She listened to our needs, was extremely patient, attentive to emails and phone calls, generous with her time, and had our best interest in mind throughout the entire home purchase. We would highly recommend working with Krista and should we be in the market for another home, would not hesitate to work with her again. - 11/13/2013 - caw1001, Zillow Reviewer

Fantastic. Krista is friendly and responsive and was available at most hours via phone, email or text message. She was actively looking out for my interests, and noticed a substantial over-payment in the escrow at closing that she worked to get refunded for me. Even after closing, she coordinated with an electrical contractor to correct an oversight on the previous owner's part after I moved in. Her office even sent someone to meet the electrician when he had to reschedule and I had to work. Highly recommended. Angie's List Reviewer

From start to finish, Krista was with us every step of the way as we purchased our first home. We came away feeling like we got lucky finding Krista. She is such a joy to work with, and she ALWAYS has her clients' best interests in mind. As first time home buyers, we leaned on Krista and her expertise throughout the process, and Krista was always willing to talk us through every scenario and lay out all of our options so that we could make the most informed decision. Countless times throughout our home search, we looked at each other and said "it feels like we're her only clients" - because she's always there for you. From her attention to detail, responsiveness, positive demeanor, etc., we couldn't have found a better partner to work with. If you're just starting the process and looking for an agent, we'd recommend Krista a thousand times over. -Angie's List Reviewer

Krista and Lily are so fun to work with and always professional. My husband and I bought our first home in April and they made the process approachable and as stress-free as possible. We are so appreciative of the knowledge and guidance they brought to the home buying journey. Thank you K + L! Angie's List Reviewer
