Words cannot express our gratitude to Kristen for securing us our first home. We found her by chance, referred to us by another agent we randomly contacted from an advertisement on another real estate app. Said the agent did not live or work in the area, so she said she would find us a real estate agent in Monterey county. Enter Kristen Kitaji. We were a bit nervous using somebody that we didn’t know in an area we were unfamiliar with. One of my dearest friends is a real estate agent (out of state) so I’ve had a uniquely intimate look at what the job entails and what can go awry if a careless agent drops the ball. However, as we were looking to sett...— MICHELLE C.
Kristin changed our lives. My husband and I had become exhausted from looking at countless homes that weren’t right for our family. Then covid hit and we hit the brakes on our new home dreams because we didn’t think we would be able to sell our current home in such a turbulent market. A few days before Memorial Day weekend, I casually sent my husband a listing “jokingly” saying we should just buy a house that was just listed because it had everything we needed. We called Kristin because we just needed to see it to satisfy our curiosity and she immediately set up the showing, where we fell in love. 20 days after I had sent my husband the listing, we ...— SHELLY M.
Kristen is a joy to work with. We found Kristen by accident, but we are so thankful we met her. From showing homes to answering calls and questions, she always made time for us. I was amazed at how quickly Kristen responded to us every time we needed advice or assistance. Kristen is kind, and friendly, and will go the extra mile for you to make sure you are happy. We are so thankful we found our dream home and Kristen made it possible. She made us feel like family and we felt like we gained a friend. We would recommend Kristen to anyone who is looking for a home in the area and wants an honest and knowledgeable REALTOR. We were first-time home buyer...— ZACK R.
Kristen is very responsive, very knowledgeable, and has a good sense of humor to go along with her many skills. She very quickly understood our need to acquire a condo in the Monterey area and helped us focus. She is very quick to respond to questions and concerns as they arise, and this is a very important skill that kept us on track, and calm. Her communication skills are also very good - she's clear and to the point. She definitely understands the nuances of the numerous process steps required to buy a property. Her follow-through after the sale on a few minor issues was also very good - she stuck with us to resolve them, even though technically ...— GENE T.
We were so lucky to find Kristen as our real estate agent to find a home in Carmel! She was referred by a friend who she also helped find a home. We appreciated Kristen's excellent knowledge of the Carmel area and the entire Monterey County. It was great to work with someone who grew up and lives in the area and truly understands the neighborhoods of Carmel or Pebble, Beach, or Monterey as we were new to the area. Kristen is very knowledgeable, patient, and responsive with her clients and really understands the real estate market. She went above and beyond for us and always with a positive outlook to ensure we found the right home. I would highly re...— MELISSA M.
Kristin helped us buy our current home and sell our previous home. She was great, on top of her stuff, and coordinated every detail for us. The home we were selling was one we had poured our whole heart into, but our family had outgrown it. Kristin was empathetic and loyal to our requests and got us a great sales price (more than we had hoped). She made us feel great about the whole process and we have no regrets. She also negotiated a great deal on our new home and we truly could not be happier with our decision. I would highly recommend Kristin in any real estate transaction. She knows Monterey county, she’s personable, and knows who to call when ...— GARRETT K.
We love nothing more than helping buyers and sellers achieve their home buying and selling goals. If you’ve got questions, we can’t wait to answer them.
