"After my first interview with Kristin, I thought she might be the person to handle the sale of my home. I was right!" Robert Krueger
"My husband and I were looking for our first home. We had an idea of what we were looking for, but had little idea of what to do next. I called my friends that had recently purchased houses, and asked who they used and if they liked them. The response was the same. "No", they did not like their realtor. So, I started by calling three realtors, and only Kris seemed not only willing, but very helpful. That alone meant a lot to us. We set up a meeting with her and were immediately impressed with her. When we went on viewings with Kris, she informed us of potential problem areas that we did not know to look for. Kris was always available for last minute showings. That is how we found our house. We called Kris with a house that we wanted to see, and she got us in ASAP. The house was only on the market for one day. Kris helped us draw up the offer (she helped us decide how much to offer) on the back of her car! The house had an offer already coming in. Kris kept us informed of the seller's decision to counter-offer and explained exactly what it meant. She came into the office on her day off, to aide us in the signing of the counter offer. When she called on Father's Day, to tell us that we were accepted, I could not have thanked her enough. She helped us through the rest of the process: explaining what earnest money was, and how the rest of the process will go. She came to our closing, and patiently waited to answer questions. She also bought us our first housewarming gift. My husband and I could not have been happier with Kris. She took time for us on her weekends, holidays, and days off. She informed us of her vacation time, days in advance. Her warm, welcoming, and cheerful personality made us feel comfortable throughout the process. We will definitely be using Kris as our realtor for our next home and for selling our current home when the time comes. We feel that we were very fortunate to have such an awesome realtor. I would have no problem recommending Kris to my family and friends. She helped us so much. Thanks Kris!"
Rachel and Tighe Ittner
"Now that the closing is over, I want to thank you for all your hard work selling my parents house. Dad seemed pleased by the outcome when I talked to him yesterday. From the time of our meeting in April and throughout the listing period when you had dealings with almost everyone in the family (and some not in the family), you really impressed me with the energy you put into the task and your positive outlook. Thanks again." Doug
"Kris was fabulous!!! Her enthusiasm, efficiency, eagerness and excellent ability to relate just made selling my home effortless on my part. Since I was soon to be married and enjoying the prospects of the home we had found, I understood that it was necessary to sell mine. However, it still tugged at my heart. Kris understood this and made every aspect very personal and reassuring. She had everything in order for the people that looked at my home, packets of information for them to take AND she had it sold in four days!!!! My fiancee and I had found a home we loved prior to meeting Kris, but she was also kind enough to search for and take us to see some properties just so we would have real peace of mind about the purchase we were pretty sure of. As a bonus, we have kept a friendship over the year since I sold my home. Thank you Kris!"
Michael and Pamela Schalk
"Thank you for all of your hard work and efficiency. You were very thorough in helping us and taking care of our needs. You made our home search seem painless and stress-free. I hope that we can work together in the future. Thanks again!"
Naomi and Dan Prusinski
"As we looked for a real estate agent to help us find and purchase our second home, my wife and I had a better idea of what we wanted in an agent than we'd had the first time through the process. We knew we wanted a person who would listen to us and take our needs and desires into consideration as we searched the market. We knew we wanted someone accessible, attentive, and trustworthy. And perhaps even most of all, we knew we wanted someone we just "clicked with" as a person. Luckily for us, we found Kris. She was everything we had hoped and expected an agent would be, and she helped make our search as stress-free as I imagine buying a home could ever be. With such a big decision facing us, it was wonderful knowing we had someone we could trust on our side, and in the end, we couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Kris. Without her, I'm not sure we'd now be living in our "dream home."
Mike and Meagan Kula
"Kristin, thank you so much for all your help in selling our house. We had a lot of faith in you and we were right! You are a very hard worker and the best! Thanks again!" Kathy and Ron Mueller
"Kris was very knowledgeable in her field, showed a personal interest in my needs, and keep me informed throughout the whole transaction. She listened carefully, was prompt on all showing appointments and was always very professional. Kris's quality of service exceeded my expectations!"
"Excellent job and service!"
The Searing Family
"I thank you for your involvement in the sale of our house, and professional attitude in handling everything. You did a very good job in keeping everything in the right perspective and moving along in spite of my help."
Richard and Mary
"Thank you for all that you have done. We are finally in our new home. Micah is finding more and more projects to do. We have really enjoyed working with you. Micah wants to have you over in a few months to see all the improvements he has done to the house. Thank you for always getting information to us promptly, and working with us to make our dream come true." Ingra and Micah Wesbey
"We recently contracted with Kris Johnston to list and sell our Aunt's home. Kris was professional, warm, caring, and friendly. I felt like we were dealing with a personal friend. Kris suggested ways in which we could make my Aunt's home more marketable and recommended individuals who could help us in these areas of improvement. Her recommendation for an asking price seemed quite reasonable and apparently it was a good price. Kris received an offer and we accepted an offer just $900 under the listing price, which was obtained at the first open house. Our Aunt's house was on the market, with an accepted offer and closing in a time span of just over one month. I truly feel that the enthusiasm Kris demonstrates in selling and marketing her listings must be apparent in every listing she has. I would recommend her services to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home. She is very good at what she does. I am personally very grateful for her attention and expertise."
"Kris is a true professional! Awesome to work with! She made the purchase very easy on us! Thanks a ton" Mark and Susan Grosskopf
"Kris is absolutely the best Buyers Agent any one could have. As many changes as we asked her to make to our search criterion, and all of the places we couldn't decide on, she didn't blink an eye to help us. She was always on top of the game (so to speak) and took very good care of our interests. She has an excellent professional demeanor and a wonderful personality. We have already recommended her to all of our friends and family. We want them to experience what a top notch real estate professional is all about. Someone who looks out for your best interest, and not her own. Kris will also have a special place in our hearts and has already become like family to us. We truly respect her. In the future, if we ever need any other housing needs, we would use her again!" Lorie and Mike S.
"Kristin was completely attentive to our needs! She gave us great insight into what to look for in a house, in terms of potential issues with homes, resale tips, etc. She was also a great partner from the first home she showed us, until 20 houses later, when we chose a house, and signed the papers! We would definitely recommend her!" Anders and Liisa Vetch
"It has been a pleasure working with you. I would DEFINITELY recommend you to anyone! You have been very prompt in communicating with me, you go out of your way to get answers for me, and have helped me to feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. And on top of that, you are very professional and personable!" Allison Theyerl
"Kristin Johnston is prompt, knowledgeable, thorough, and good natured. She responded patiently to all of my questions and concerns. She even came to my new home shortly before I moved in and spent time helping me visualize where to place all of my furnishings. Also, with her expert assistance, my house sold in only one day! I would highly recommend her to others." Mary Ann Searing
"Kris, thank you so much for all of the time and energy you put into this long journey with us! You are so professional, yet personal, and we have appreciated your attitude, patience, and expertise through this process. We have had such a positive experience with you. Thank you for everything! We will be recommending you to our friends that are considering buying!" Ben and Lisa Berg
"Kris was the perfect choice for helping my husband and I buy our first house. She took the time to explain every detail of the process and answered every question we had. She was very thorough and knowledgeable and she worked very hard to get us what we wanted. Sometimes she would email us at 10 at night or 6 in the morning, showing her dedication to her clients. We trusted her completely and would recommend her to anybody looking to buy a home, especially first time buyers." Katie and Griffin James
"Kristin is a hard working Realtor who takes a personal approach. She treats her clients like family and is there from start to finish and well beyond.

"Kristin is awesome on all details and followup from start to finish. You can "relax when you hire Kristin at ReMax." Both buyers and sellers will find comfort with her knowledge and experience to get the job done." Bill Stas, Broker/Owner, Remax Realty Center
