"To sum up our experience with Kristi, she's on her Game."

"Thorough.  Aggressive.  Flexible. Responsive and Fun.  We are a high demand couple who had a very specific set of goals for finding our new home.  Kristi lined up for us properties that showed us a wide variety of options and also shared the island with us - to help us decide the best location for our goals and lifestyle.  We were challenging in that we were doing most of the final negotiations, inspections from thousands of miles away in Alaska.  We never felt that distance and kristi was able to secure the home of our dreams within our tight timeframe.  We recommend Kristi without hesitation."

We are a professional couple who worked with Kristi to help us find the perfect Bainbridge Island waterfront property as we planned our move south from Alaska. Our hectic schedule allowed us only one day on the ground to review real estate options. To prepare for our visit, Kristi did an amazing job of working with us remotely while we were in Alaska and Hawaii to supply us with the information necessary to inform us on the best potential options and narrow the field to the best group of properties that could feasibly be reviewed in a single day. She also was very helpful in providing information and answers to all our questions about lifestyle on the Island. Our real estate review day was a whirlwind, visiting a dozen properties. It was a very busy but very enjoyable day with Kristi that successfully concluded with the selection of a perfect property. Her efficiency and diligence as our representative continued through every aspect of the successful purchase and due diligence process. Kristi did a fantastic job for us and we would not hesitate to highly recommend her.

Buying real estate long distance is a tricky undertaking, but I did just that. Luckily, I fell into the hands of Kristi Nelson, real estate agent (as well as fairy godmother)0. There is nothing she cannot or will not do for a client. I had to be tutored about Washington State real estate law and walked through all kinds slippery situations. Kristi was on top of everything from the first telephone conversation through the closing (on my gorgeous waterfront dream house) and months later she is still constantly in touch and doing me endless favors.

For anyone thinking about purchasing real estate on Bainbridge Island, Kristi will not only provide everything from soup to nuts, she will actually provide a banquet fit for royalty.  She is diligent, extremely hard working, totally trustworthy and brilliantly knowledgeable about the island and its properties. There is no one I would rather work with.

"We worked with Kristi Nelson in 2005 to both sell home and buy our current house on Bainbridge Island.  The process for both transactions could not have been smoother, and Kristi was a pleasure to work with. When selling our home, Kristi was extremely organized and proactive - quickly jumping into action to get our house listed and initiate the extremely well-attended broker open house.  She provided sound advice on our listing price decision, leading to what was at the time the highest $/square foot comparable sales transaction in the market.  More importantly, we secured a buyer for our home within two weeks of the initial listing. Kristi worked with the buyer's broker throughout the process to ensure a smooth transaction.

Kristi was similarly valuable during the purchase of our current home.  For this 1920s home, we were planning on doing substantial renovation and therefore needed additional assistance from several specialists during the inspection process.  Kristi went above and beyond the call to help us line up these specialists and coordinate the meetings. She also connected us with several architects to discuss remodeling our new home.

Kristi remains a trusted advisor to us. We continue to consult with her from time to time regarding various aspects of our home ownership.  We would highly recommend Kristi to anyone considering buying or selling their home."

Working with Kristi helped take much of the stress out of our first home-buying experience. She was friendly, engaging and put us at ease while looking at the home at our own pace. We were forced to switch lenders mid-closing, and she worked hard to help us meet every deadline we had. It was refreshing to feel that you were her complete focus every conversation, and she was always on top of where the process of closing was. Her ability to recommend knowledgeable people for each step we needed to take to helped expedite checking items off. Her motivation and knowledge was a true asset in working through a difficult situation and helped make what could have been a very frustrating deal an enjoyable one.
