""We were looking for something fairly specific and weren't in a big rush. I appreciated how Krista took time to really understand what we were looking for. She knew the market and did lots of research on comps. At every step of the process she was accessible and easy. On the day we moved into our new house she was almost as excited as we were!""

"We came to Krista with a unique situation. We wanted to purchase a rental home in the Bellingham area with the hope of renting to our son and his young family and eventually he would buy the property from us. Here is the catch, we lived in New England and they were living in Concrete Washington. Over great distances Krista was able to balance our budget and our son's expectations and showed great patient and a knowledge of the market bringing together the two criteria. It was a pleasure and wonderful experience working with Krista. We highly recommend Krista to help solve your real estate needs."

"We were very pleased to have Krista as our agent when we got ready to sell our home. From the beginning and throughout the process, we felt Krista acted professionally, communicated with us consistently, and used her excellent marketing skills that resulted in a quick sale and above our asking price! We highly recommend Krista if you are looking for an exceptional real estate agent!"

"We chose Krista because we were impressed with her marketing of a similar home in our area -- the South Hill of Bellingham. She exceeded our expectations. Her marketing skills are peerless, but her understanding of the market may be her strongest quality. We trusted her guidance, which resulted in a quick sale and close at a price above asking."

"Krista helped us by extensively researching the area we were looking to buy -- not just pulling comps, but making certain she had all the data in relations to crime, safety, schools, flooding, etc. She puts her clients best interests in mind and truly listens to what you are looking for in your dream house and will work hard to find houses that meet your parameters. She is incredibly professional, honest, has and amazing eye for design and detail, and gets things moving quickly. We felt comfortable that she respected our maximum budget constraints and did not try to push us above what we could afford. I could not recommend her highly enough and she stuck with us for 10 months through this crazy competitive market until we found the right house that met all our needs. We found her by recommendation from a friend and are so grateful for her and all she has done for us. Thanks for your patience, Krista!"
