Real estate is more than a series of transactions. It is walking side by side with someone while they move through the steps and emotions of owning their own little piece of the world.

Did you know that in Colorado, transplants now outnumber natives? Well allow me to introduce myself, I am Kris, a true Colorado native—born and raised in Colorado Springs, proud graduate of the University of Colorado and adventurer of all the wonderful things this state has to offer. After college, life brought about the opportunity to travel which resulted in four different moves, between three states, in three years. (During this time, I also got married and had my first kid because, why not do all the stressful things at once, right?).

It was this repeated moving process that led to my appreciation and interest in the world of real estate. I was fortunate to work with agents throughout the country who helped me through many of the stressful situations I now coach my clients through. As someone with a sales background, working with all walks of people was something that came naturally for me, but the opportunity to walk the path with my clients while they go through the very emotional and, at times, stressful process of buying or selling a home was something that truly excited me. The thought that, if I did it right, I would be able to be the lighthouse in the storm, the way my former agents were for me, meant so much and is my purpose in each transaction I do with my clients.

I bring a passion for working with people to uncover their vision and make it a reality. In the real estate world, this may mean finding the perfect house, neighborhood or simply a trustworthy agent who has your best interest in mind. Bringing my background in hospitality to the forefront of my real estate business, I take a consultative approach to working with my clients and provide a service-based experience with clear communication, responsiveness and insight rooted in data and market knowledge. Clients seek me out because I am thorough, reliable, and a true advocate for my clients.

Whether you are looking to sell your home or find one in which to start discovering Colorado on your own, I would love to work with you to make your goals a reality.

Kris is everything you want in a realtor. She took time to understand our needs, was patient with us when we needed education, and battled for us, when we needed help. She was the absolute best, and I cannot recommend her enough!

    But for real though, running and real estate go hand in hand. I ran 10 miles this morning and went all around my town and neighborhood. 🏡I looked at what homes were on the market and with who, I noted the ones that have had signs in the yard week over week, I made mental notes of the new listings and their locations and was able to do this all while training for my marathon (T-13 weeks til race day 🏃🏼‍♀️) and listening to a podcast about the industry’s revisions for the market the rest of the year after our recent market shift. 📊

    So like I said, running and real estate go hand in hand 😜Call me if you want to hear more any of the items above, I’d be happy to talk running, listings and the market anytime!

    🎆Wishing you all a safe and fun Independence Day! 🎇🇺🇸

    It's July, friends! Make sure to take a few minutes today to take care of some small and easy home maintenance items to keep your house in great shape!

    Do you have a passion project? Something that you're involved in because you love it or feel it's important and not to make money?

    Allow me to introduce you to mine: The Semper Fi & America's Fund— a veterans organization dedicated to providing immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

    I became involved in this charity through my husband who is a USMC combat veteran. As the spouse of a veteran I understand that there is only so much support I can provide having no frame of reference for what my husband, and fellow vets, have experienced as part of their service, so anytime there is a resource or opportunity available to veterans I am eager to support it. I have seen the community that "The Fund" has created first hand and the direct positive impact it has on the vets who participate.

    As I have mentioned on this page before, I am currently training for my first marathon which will be the Marine Corp Marathon in October. I will be running this marathon with my husband and a group of fellow vets and their support systems. Support, training and logistics for this event have all been courtesy of the Semper Fi fund and I could not be more honored to participate with this charity for this special event.

    If you're looking for a passion project and want to check out this organization their website is in the link in my bio. I'd also be happy to connect you with someone who can give you a first person perspective. 😀

    What does this mean?

    It means, buy the house you want. But, remember, committing to the house doesn't mean you have to commit to the financing available now forever. Smart homeowners always look for a better financing opportunity, and make the move when the time is right. You can always change your financing to more favorable terms later, if better rates and products become available. And if rates only get worse, then you'll be glad you married the house when you did.

    If you have questions about what type of financing is available right now I'd be happy to get you in touch with some amazing lenders! Send me a DM or give me a call 719.640.1610

    With the recent, exciting changes in my life I wanted to take a moment to say hello and thank you to the new followers/friends. Allow me to (re)introduce myself! I'm Kris and I love real estate! Some fun fact about me:

    🏔 I am a born and raised Coloradan
    👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Mom of two kiddos and have been married to my husband for almost 6 years.
    🐕‍🦺I am a #dogmom of a sweet, but neurotic Belgian Malinois named Whiskey
    🏃‍♀️I am currently training for my first marathon which will be the Marine Corps Marathon in October
    ✈️ I love to travel and explore new places. To date, I have been to eight different countries, lived in three different states and visited 12 others. Next on the travel list is New Zealand and Louisiana!

    It means the world to me to know that, in the eyes of my clients, my goal of being a resource and source of value for my clients from start to finish was achieved. 😊

    Ok friends, I have some very exciting news to share.
    I am officially the newest member of the Live West Realty family!
    This brokerage has been in business for more than 30 years, has done more than $1.5 Billion in sales and is home to some incredible Realtors. I am so honored and excited to be part of this group and can't wait to continue to serve my clients with all of the new tools, resources and knowledge this move brings.

    A little real estate humor to celebrate all the dads out there. I always tell my clients whose fathers are heavily involved in the process, "they wouldn't do it if they didn't care so much about you." 😜
    Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

    It’s not everyday that you get to help someone you went to high school with buy a house more than a decade after graduating! Thank you guys for giving me the opportunity to work with you to help purchase your first home together! I’m so very happy for you!

    Side note: if any other Sand Creek alumni need a realtor, I’m your girl! 😂😜
