Your Hard-working Agent

Don’t Let Self-Doubt Cloud Your Judgement.  We got this.


Let me show you how I can eliminate your doubts and empower you with knowledge and the right tools so feel confident in your next steps. 

Do These Doubts Sound Familiar?

I Don't Know Where To Start

A lot of clients feel like they don’t know how to start exploring their home-buying options.  In all reality, it’s very easy.  We’ll meet and walk through all of your interests and your concerns.  I’ll provide a customized consultation to assess your individual needs and create a plan to make this as seamless as possible. 

It'll Be Too Complicated

Some people get stressed before they even begin!  Breathe easy, I’m going to be by your side every step of the way.  I’ll work with you to understand your unique lifestyle, needs, and wants.  Because selling your home, or buying a new one should be more than a bottom line.  It’s also a new and exciting chapter in your life!

I Need A Lot Save to Buy A Home, I Can't Afford It

A lot of people think they need 20% saved before they can buy a home, and that’s not true!  There are several programs available.  When we meet, we’ll explore what options work best for you!

I'll Just Rent And Wait For The Bubble To Pop

 This is a pretty common statement I hear from people.  What we’re presently experiencing is a supply and demand shortage, not a bubble

Did you know that 52,000 residents moved to Salt Lake in 2019?  And in 2020, during the height of the pandemic we had a 25,000 positive net migration in Utah.  We have a lot of people moving here (and staying here) and we simply don’t have enough homes available for people to buy. 

We also have a healthy local economy, Utah is ranked #2 in the nation for businesses to move here.  We’re also ranked #1 in the nation for population growth and employment growth as of 2020.  We’re anticipating another million residents along the Wasatch Front within the next decade.  

The cost of rent is also increasing and will continue to go up!  When you own your own home, there’s a ton of financial perks.  When we meet, we can explore how owning a home is better than any 401k!

My goal with every client is to give them the tools they need so they know they’ve made a good investment and are able to build wealth in real estate.  I’ll make sure you have a good foundation and feel empowered by your choices.

About Me

Before Real Estate

I held several leadership roles in the healthcare industry.  I repaired, advocated, and enhanced Medicare plan across the nation.  I ran start-up markets and built strategies that generated several millions of dollars on an annual basis.  After 10+ years of traveling, I started wondering why I was helping corporations make money, when I could be doing that for others. 

Real Estate

I’m a second-generation Realtor.  My family are realtors and custom home builders and I grew up in this industry.  Having been in an out of the Real Estate Industry myself since 1993, I naturally understand the dynamics of Real Estate. 

Within my first year at Keller Williams, I was awarded the once-in-a-lifetime Cultural Icon award due to my dedication to my clients and my service to others in the community.  I co-owned a successful real estate team for almost two years before I decided to go back on my own to spend more time with my clients.

My big why is helping people and building quality relationships.

In fact, most of my business comes from positive referrals from past clients.  I believe you can have a successful business that focuses on service and building quality relationships in the community.

Top 5 Things I'm known For
  • My Integrity. I am old-school when it comes to doing the right thing.
  • Reliable and Dependable. My clients feel like I am always available, day or night.
  • Hard-Working. I never throw in the towel. I always work to find solutions if an issue comes up.
  • Negotiation. I am a bit of bulldog when it comes to negotiating on behalf of my clients. They always know I’m working in their best interests.  Agents also appreciate that I find win-win solutions for both parties.
  • I love what I do and truly enjoy helping people. You can ask my clients, friends, and family.  I love helping people, building quality relationships, and living an authentic life. 

No fake smiles, no fluff, you just get a hard-working and personable agent who’s dedicated to helping you.

Jeff C,  Seller

She made my relocation easy! Kristin was very hands- on and strived to make my move from San Diego to Utah as easy as possible. She helped me find an agent to sell my home in San Diego and made it a snap! She also kept me informed of issues and negotiations with the seller from my purchase in Utah.
