"We have worked with Kristal Grimstead on selling two properties and buying one. Our experiences with Kristal we're wonderful. She is a very skilled agent. She chooses the best photographer, videographer, and staging to aid her in her solid marketing plan. She was in constant contact with us on all of our real estate needs. We highly recommend her!"

"I interviewed several agents, asking each for a marketing plan. Our home had an indoor , and I knew it would have a small buyer , and require some strong marketing, and reaching outside of our immediate area.
Kristal presented a solid marketing plan. Her communication skills, and caring attitude with experience in selling -end homes, gave me the impression that if we got into negotiations with a buyer, she would get the deal across the finish line.
That certainly bore out. When we finally found serious buyers, from outside the area, she cultivated a good relationship with them, and the deal went very smoothly

" Simply Magical. Kristal helped us purchase a home last Spring. She did such a magnificent job that we called her a month ago to sell our property. Within 2 weeks it was sold! She is one of the most genuine, honest, and hard-working people whom I have ever worked with. Any call to her was responded to quickly. Kristal would be the first person on my list to recommend...I have already referred my friends. The BEST!"
- Candy


★★★★★
"Kristal was a dream to work with! She had a solid marketing plan, hired the right photographer and videographer, was willing to host open houses and neighborhood gatherings to promote our property. Kristal was able to negotiate an excellent contract that benefited both parties. We would highly recommend Kristal and would definitely work with her again." - Rene

★★★★★
"Kristal was wonderful to work with; she is very thoughtful, patient, and knowledgeable about the area and the market. She was very responsive to our questions and diligently pursued properties that matched our desires and interests. When we found the right house, she was an aggressive advocate in helping us get the best price and closing timeline. The whole process was easy and smooth, and I whole heartedly recommend her!" - Meghan

★★★★★
"Kristal is great! This was our first time buying a home so we had lots of questions. She is very knowledgeable and flexible. She made the process easy with regular updates and check ins. I would recommend her to anyone!" - Rachael

★★★★★
"Kristal was so wonderful in our entire home-buying process. She was extremely supportive and open to our changing needs. She is warm, bright, engaged, and works hard to help you find and successfully purchase a property you want. In the end, we found an off-market property, and the property owners were initially reluctant to work with a real estate agent, but Kristal's genuine warmth, knowledge, and openness won them over. She guided us through the process and made everyone feel like they were winning. I highly recommend her."
- Karin


★★★★★
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Kristal to find our home. She is an outstanding individual who proactively helped us throughout the home buying process. We've worked with many realtors in the past, and she is one of the best. We never hesitate to pass on her name to friends in Bellingham who are buying or selling a home." - Jordan

★★★★★
"If you are looking to buy or sell a home, you have the BEST in the profession with Kristal. At every point along the way Kristal had our best interests at heart. Her depth of knowledge and professional advise brought us 11 showings of our home for sale within the first 36 hours!!! Her rapport with the selling agent, title company, banks and mortgage companies was exceptional, along with her current market on-target-pricing, all aided in a smooth transition through the complexity of the selling process. We always felt like we were her top priority." - Sarah
