She was great at weeding out places we thought we wanted to look at that she thought would not be right. This helped us not become overwhelmed in our search and focus on just the best properties for us and our budget."
"Kristie has a wonder knack of pulling things together and marketing your property in a way that gets buyers through the door. It only takes one buyer, but lots of eyes. Our home sale was seamless and easy with an expert realtor, like Kristie Edwards. When looking for a new home, she unearthed many gems, giving us plenty to choose from. The negotiating and purchase of our new residence was quick and easy. I appreciate her ability to quickly identify what I was looking for and cut to the chase. I'd definitely use her service again. Excellent!"
