"As a first time home buyer I was very nervous and scared as far as how the whole thing was gonna go but Kristina made things very easy answering the 10 billion questions that I had, when I thought things where taking a turn for the worse and the deal was gonna fall through on the house of my dreams Kristina went above and beyond what I thought a realtor's job description was to make sure that things got back on track. I closed on my house on the day we had initially planned on and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Kristina for everything you did for me!"

"Kristina was amazing all around. Super friendly, quick response time, and easy to get ahold of (email, phone, text). If there was something she was unsure of, she researched it and got back to us. Kristina also kept in touch with our mortgage processor and attorney to make sure everything would be handled in a timely manner. She always made time for our difficult schedule whenever we had a last minute request to go see a home. As far as selling our home, she did a great job with giving suggestions for improvements/staging. Our home sold in less than 2 weeks with multiple offers. If we ever move again, she will be our girl! Not only did we have a great experience with Kristina, we made a great friend! I'd recommend her over and over. "

"We were referred to Kristina by a family friend and are are forever grateful we met her. From the very beginning of our home buying process Kristina made everything run as smoothly as possible for us. Whenever we we had questions she responded to us right away and gave us good advice as we were first time home buyers. Her kind spirit, attentiveness and overall character as a person radiate through the entire process in order to fulfill your dreams of homeownership. Even after closing she still followed up to see how we were doing in our new home. You don't just have a sales agent within her, she genuinely cares about her clients and wants to find you a place to call Home. We are very thankful for her service and would recommend her to anyone we know."

You really made it painless. We appreciate you so much. Best of luck to you and your very promising career. Don't change a thing you were perfect."

"Kristina Betancourt was such a pleasure to work! I hired her to sell my Mother's home that I had inherited. The home was in a Trust so the sale was a little more complicated than a typical sale. Kristina handled all the details and the home was under contract in no time. I knew that I had the right realtor from the moment I met her. She was always one step ahead of each detail of our sale. She always kept me up to date and informed. She takes pride in even the small details. I loved that she insisted on having the blinds open for showings to let the sunshine in and she would go open them herself as I did not live in the home! Very smooth sale and closing. I am so pleased with Kristina and would highly recommend her.

★★★★★

★★★★★
"I would like to share great affirmations for Kristina Betancourt. I am a realtor in Northern Colorado and was working with clients who were in need of selling their property. Wanting the best for my clients I called quite a few realtors and gave them challenging questions and checked if they would be the best for what the clients needed and would be a good fit for them. Kristina met and exceeded the clients and my expectations. Her communications throughout the transaction were remarkable and her knowledge and skill for the real estate industry are sound! Her collaborative approach was most welcoming and benefited the clients greatly! Moving forward with any more clients in her market, I will be sure to reach out to Kristina first!

★★★★★
"Kristina is the BEST!!! Kristina was recommended to me by someone who had heard good things from a friend so I reached out to her. In the first visit, Kristina spent over 3 hours going through every room, taking pictures and discussing her ideas and the theme for the house. When I told her the price I expected for the house, she told me that it was high based on the comps in the area. Other agents had told me the same, however this is where Kristina stood out from the rest. Other agents would just eventually agree to my price to get the listing while Kristina said we could still go for my target price with some upgrades. The following week Kristina spent a lot of time doing research and sending me ideas about the upgrades I should invest in. But she didn’t stop her work there, she then went to hardware store and online, sending me pictures of lights, fixtures, tiles, colors etc that I could get to make it all come together. When the contractors were working in my house she would FaceTime me to see the progress in real-time and give suggestions. Once the house was ready she spent several hours to stage the house herself, she even moved furniture around. During the inspection she even offered to sit in house to look after my cat side he is afraid of strangers. In a nutshell, selling the house is a stressful process but Kristina made the entire process so easy and she was always available via text or phone to address any questions. Unlike other agents who just give you high level ideas and walk away, Kristina invested a lot of time and energy in making sure we put our best foot forward. Even the negotiation process was easy as she fully understood my parameters and I had the house under contract within days of putting it on the market. I feel most real estate agents don’t justify their commission, but Kristina she really earned it. She is truly the BEST!!!
