I have been selling residential real estate in Northern Colorado since 2007. I am thrilled to be a part of helping families, individuals, and investors achieve their real estate goals especially since we survived the 2008 recession! In 2012 I joined a Top Producing Real Estate Team and started really diving into the art of selling Residential Real Estate in Colorado. I learned a great foundation for being an excellent Realtor for my clients. It was a rewarding and educational experience. My goal as a REALTOR® is to make real estate transactions easy and provide exceptional service to my clients. Customer Service is the key. 

I have lived in Colorado since 2002  and have an amazing husband and three beautiful children.  In addition to Real Estate, I am a co-owner of The Spice and Tea Exchange in Fort Collins. In my free time, I really enjoy traveling the world, food and wine!  I am a huge sports fan.  We are season ticket holders to the Broncos and the Rockies! 

I am very passionate about support for non-profits in our community and I have been actively involved in this community.  In addition to Non-profits, I created a program with Cornerstone Home Lending, the Humphries Team called H.E.R.O.E.S (Homes for emergency responders and other emergency services) this is close to my heart and is my personal foundation for the First Responders in our community.

I am an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Kirstin was very professional and extremely available throughout the entire process. We bought our first house with Kirstin and she answered all of our big and small questions regarding possible resale value and location proximity. Kirstin's services were always helpful and she remained positive and a vital team leader in our house buying success."

"Kirstin is certainly one of the best, if not THE best realtors I've ever worked with.  She made the home buying experience a delight for me and my family.  When we found the home we really wanted and discovered that there was another offer about to come in, she expertly guided us through the offer process to help us submit a competitive bid, ultimately helping us to get our dream home.  She has a very good list referral contacts to help in other areas as well (home inspection, homeowners insurance, etc.), and everyone she recommended was also very helpful and professional.  She also worked hand in hand with my lender and was truly part of the team.  I've purchased a number of homes, and none of the buying experiences went as smoothly and as stress-free as this most recent one did with Kirstin.  I highly recommend her to anyone!"

"Kirsten is an expert in her area and works hard to get you the house you're looking for. Our schedules were very busy and we always had odd hours to work with or very last minute requests and she always made time for us. She has a sense of urgency that is a must for our fast paced market, but with a FOCUSED energy that makes all the difference between landing a contract. I was able to close on my house in 17 days because of her knowledgeable and highly driven team that knew how to get things done! Thanks Kirsten for making this an enjoyable experience for Josh and I."

"Kirstin was the best!  Being from out of state, we knew nothing of Colorado.  She helped us get a beautiful home at a great price.  She is extremely knowledgeable and very nice.  Would love to work with her in the future and have already recommended her to two of our friends. "

"Kirstin is a very hands on realtor who is in constant touch with the on going process of buying a home. This includes a wide variety of necessary knowledge on loan and bank information along with the details of the process. She is wonderful to work with, you will feel confident that she is doing the best for you."

"I would highly recommend Kirstin, she was the only realtor that stepped up and was ready to show us houses, send emails, & answer any questions we had.  Shes great at what she does and I would work with her again."

"My experience with Kirstin was nothing but positive. I was a young home buyer, looking to purchase my first home. I obviously had many questions about the process, but Kirstin was incredibly patient and actually LISTENED to what I needed. Her knowledge of the northern Colorado housing market was outstanding and I felt I was getting fantastic service. Our day to day communication was prompt and efficient. Even after a long house search, Kirstin stayed determined to find the perfect house for the budget I wanted. Once we found the house, Kirstin's help through the closing process so was hassle free and simple. She explained each step along the way and demonstrated outstanding customer service. I cannot say enough good things about Kirstin and how she treated me as a client. I highly recommend her services."

" I was very impressed and comfortable with Kirsten from the first minute I spoke with her.  I would highly recommend her. She's on top of her game, very knowledgeable and has a quick answer for every question. I have had two other real estate agents in the past and was not happy with either one. Thank you Kirsten!"
