Testimonials for Kristi Porter
Eric & Sarah Klingele, Home Sellers in Bonner Springs, KS08/08/2011
"Kristi is a master negotiator. She developed a great relationship with the buying agent and it helped us both to get a win-win deal. We initially received a low offer and with Kristi's skillful negotiation skills, we reached a deal! Kristi cares about her clients and always looks for the win-win."
Jeff & Kim Frieling, Home Sellers in De Soto, KS03/08/2010

"Kristi was amazing!!! Moving from out of state can be overwhelming but Kristi made the process very easy and fun. We really appreciated her taking the time to show us around the area to make sure we found the right neighborhood to live in."
Melissa and Andrew Drummond, Home Buyers in Lenexa, KS07/02/2007
"Andrew and I are over at the house this evening continuing to get it ready for our move. Slowly but surely, it is beginning to feel like home. It has been a whirlwind of a week, and as we continue to put our touches on the house, it’s hard to not sit and reflect on the past 6-months-I can’t believe that we started this process 6-months ago!
I can remember our very first visit with you as we started down this road. I can remember thinking to myself “This will be easy!”. Little did I know the amount of mental, physical, and emotional energy that is required as a homebuyer. With that being said, Andrew & I could not have successfully completed this journey without your help.
We were listening to Dave Ramsey this afternoon, and he used the phrase “heart of a teacher”, and I immediately thought of you. If I had only one phrase to describe you it would be “heart of a teacher”. That phrase encompasses so much of who you are and what you do for your clients. Every step of the way, you put OUR thoughts, OUR emotions, OUR wants, OUR needs, OUR desires at the forefront of the process. It was never about hurrying us through the process to make a sale. It was, however, always about making sure that we were informed, educated, confident, and at peace with our decision.
You went out of your way each day that we worked with you– taking late night phone calls, staying out with us until 10:30PM at night getting the details on the house we fell in love with, making phone calls to gather information that we needed … and the list goes on and on.
Andrew & I took many different turns throughout the process. (Can you say “villa”?) But you always stood by our side ready to ask how you could help. You never pushed us in one direction or another, but you provided the information that we needed to help guide us along the way. In the end, we found a place that we can call home.
I would highly recommend you to those 1st time homebuyers who need the extra attention, help, and guidance. The type of attention that you gave to us made all of the difference in the world.
I must admit that the end of this journey makes me sad as you became not only our Real Estate Agent but also our friend. We are truly blessed to have been recommended to you by other 1st time homebuyers, and we know that the next 1st time homebuyers that you work with will be just as blessed as us.
Again, thank you for all that you have done for us! We greatly appreciate it more than you will ever know!
PS: Please don’t hesitate to use our comments on your website, and of course, we would be more than happy to be a reference!"
Ryan & Erin Shanahan, Home Buyers in Blue Springs, MO12/10/2006
"You were very patient with us during our months of house hunting, we looked at many, many houses before we found our home. If we have to do it again, you will be our go to gal! You are very dedicated to your clients and a wonderful all around person. On a scale of 1-5 you are definitely a 5!!"
Jim & Jessica Leslie, Home Seller's in Olathe, KS and Home Buyers in Lenexa, KS04/05/2004
"You did great. You were always there when I needed you and you seemed to have everything under control from the start. I enjoyed spending that time with you and am sad to see it has already been a couple of months since the process ended. Thank you for all your assistance with this endeavor."
