Here's what other Buyers and Sellers had to say about working with me:
"Kristy armed us with a lot of good advice and reading materials. She helped us sift through scores of listings, showing lots of patience; willingness to work around our schedule and ability to be prompt at answering our frantic calls. We got a great deal on our first home thanks to Kristy's negotiations skills and we continue to use her help long after our home sale." Andrew Bennett & Andra Ivan ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Immediately after meeting Kristy, we knew she was the right agent for us. She was positively great. She understood our needs and concerns. She continually kept us posted day to day on new listings and was always available to answer our calls. We found our first home less than six weeks after meeting her in a fantastic neighborhood in Wakefield. We had a great first time home buying experience and Kristy really helped guide us through it." Jason and Irene Ellis ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Kristy has great expertise in the real estate market and more importantly she is results driven. She was able to execute our sale very quickly by providing valuable tips (creatively presenting our house) and candid feedback (explaining where to focus our efforts). Most notably, Kristy was very personable and professional throughout the entire process." Tony Amato ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Kristy did a great job helping us find the right house for our family. She was very patient, as we struggled with our many options, and was a lot of help every step of the way. Although we were in the area during the shopping phase, we transacted much of the actual sale remotely, and Kristy never missed a beat." Ben and Jill Geslison ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Kristy is very organized, has an eye for detail, is marketing and technology-savvy, and delivers a high level of customer service to her clients. When we found a new house we wanted to buy, we needed to quickly sell our existing home. Kristy spent a lot of time with us on very short notice getting the house ready for buyers, taking photos, accenting its best features, helping us stage the property, etc. She organized a very successful and well attended open house that directly led to the offer we accepted. Kristy was always available by phone, email, or in person when needed. She was and has remained very attentive to us as customers. She brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our transactions. We recommend her real estate services to other people considering buying or selling a home." Lisa and Peter Colli ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Kristy isn't afraid of hard-work and goes the extra mile to market properties for her clients - very creatively. Her background in marketing is a huge asset to her sellers as she produces amazing web commercials and knows how to add the extra "buzz" to a property to draw more attention by the way she positions it on the market and her property descriptions get notice. She understands the value of great photos and how to leverage that to the benefit of her client. She knows her market and can guide buyers to the great opportunities that are out there during these turbulent times. RE/MAX Heritage is proud of the way Kristy's works for her clients." Linda O'Koniewski Broker/Owner RE/MAX Heritage LLC ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Kristy is an extremely motivated, intelligent and organized woman. She goes beyond her role and responsibilities as a realtor and she constantly strives to be the best. I admire how she sets goals for herself and excels to meet and surpass those goals. Her marketing proposals and presentations are creative and comprehensive covering everything a buyer or seller needs to know from real estate and financing in insurance and moving. Kristy's success is a reflection of her hard work. I would highly recommend Kristy." Lesley Santini Senior Loan Officer NE Moves Mortgage ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"We wholeheartedly recommend Kristy as a real estate agent to anyone who is serious about buying of selling real estate. She takes great pride in her work and is committed to fulfilling her client's needs. Her positive attitude, willingness to listen and be honest, and friendliness led us to make the decision to retain her as our buyer's agent." Jennifer and Patrick Levett ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"When you choose Kristy, you're dealing with an experienced professional who understands your concerns and will provide you with a personalized service that helps you through this life changing decision. Kristy is more than an agent She is an advocate. She is there for you when you are selling, buying and closing. Kristy, through her knowledge of the real estate market is able to be a strong negotiator for her clients. You will find that she will work with you on searching for a home or if you are selling giving you research data to ensure your home is priced competitively. Kristy is keenly aware of the stresses that come with the sale or purchase of real estate. " Christopher Murray
To Whom It May Concern: It is with great pleasure that we write this letter to express our complete gratitude with the integrity and professionalism displayed by Kristy Bonaventura. Our goal, when hiring Kristy was to sell our home and purchase a new and comparable home in a different town with a better school system. With five children and a home that was built specifically for our family and lifestyle, this was no easy task. Throughout the entire process Kristy was professional, conscientious, and motivated. We always felt as though we were her only client. Initially we were uncertain of the asking price on our property, but Kristy diligently checked multiple sources to verify that our pricing was accurate and met my goal of selling the house within a certain timeframe. Consequently, she sold it at the first open house and for exactly what we wanted. While helping us find our new home, she did not try to sell us every home we looked at, as some realtors do. We liked the way she let the home sell itself and never tried to push us into making an offer. We are grateful for her honesty and felt as though she was truly looking out for our best interests. We were particularly impressed when she presented our offer directly to the seller on our behalf. We highly recommend Kristy's services for anyone requiring assistance in buying or selling a home and would be delighted to answer any specific questions regarding her performance. The LeBlanc Family
