★★★★★
"We have sold two homes and purchased one with Krissy Cruse (not to mention some bonus great advice for our current custom home building process). She is fun and easy-going to work with throughout the entire process. No question is too small or too big, and Krissy is consistently responsive. Krissy steps in to manage many of the details and annoyances that other agents might leave to you. Highly recommended." - Andrew

"As good as it gets. Krissy is amazing, honest, hardworking. We have used Krissy's services for the past couple of years and have bought and sold three houses together. She's smart, driven, and personable. Krissy makes you feel comfortable right away and eases your worry during such a stressful time in your life, selling a house! She partners with wonderful contractors and mortgage brokers in the area and we always know we are in good hands. I can't say enough good things about Krissy, she's just amazing and we will continue to recommend her time and time again. If you want to buy or sell your house, call Krissy." - Susie

★★★★★
"Our family just closed on a house last month. Throughout the search, negotiation, and closing process, Krissy was invaluable to obtaining a house in the location wanted and for the price range desired. She was remarkably responsive to questions and extremely knowledgeable about the northern Virginia market. Highly recommended for those looking for a professional forthright agent!"

"Krissy is amazing! She helped us buy and sell during the time we brought our third child into the world. To say this was a stressful period of our lives, would be an understatement. When my husband and I found out we were expecting (huge surprise), we were excited and scared and quickly realized we needed more space. We were unsure how to proceed as we had only been in our newly constructed townhouse for 3 years and we honestly weren’t sure we could afford more home. Krissy held our hands every step of the way, making sure we were comfortable as we entered this new chapter of our lives. And just like that, she managed both the selling and purchasing of our homes. The process was smooth and pain free. She was on our side, in our corner and made sure the deals went through. Krissy is trustworthy, energetic, smart and honest. I would NEVER use anyone else. I’m forever loyal to the amazing service she provided to my growing family. "

About
Krissy grew up in San Jose, California, where she saw houses double in value during the ’80s and ’90s and learned that real estate was the key to wealth building. She earned her real estate license in 2002 and entered the market just as it was experiencing the downturn of the dot-com bust when many people were losing their tech jobs and leaving the Bay Area. She then moved to Idaho, where the tech industry was growing, and the new environment allowed her to work in new construction as well as to hone her outreach marketing skills through door-knocking, cold calling, and farming activities in tract-housing developments. A few years after her move, however, Idaho suffered the same exodus as California with the mortgage market implosion.

A military move then took Krissy and her family to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, a community with almost 100 percent VA buyers. Krissy handled 48 transactions in a single year for families that could purchase new construction homes for less than they would pay in a lease agreement. During this time, she mastered the coaching skills that first-time homebuyers need to be involved in and to understand the purchase transaction.

Since 2011, Krissy has been presenting options to buyers and sellers in the Northern Virginia market. Focused on Western Prince William County, the diverse housing inventory is exciting to her, and she enjoys embarking on a journey with each client to find the best price and terms. Whether a client is looking for a high-rise condo in Arlington, new construction in Loudoun County, or a cash flow investment property, Krissy is committed to seeing every stage of the process result in client satisfaction.
