Finding the right home is very much like putting the pieces of a puzzle together. Initially you may think you have it all together, only to arrive in the Denver metro area to discover its nothing like you expected! Blame it on the internet, what's lacking is not information, but the ability to touch and smell... One thing is certain, those pictures of listings on the web don't always tell the whole story!
Think of your relocation as a puzzle, you possess all the pieces, but one. The missing piece is having a knowledgable person to talk to about your expectations, choices and needs. You can search the web all day long finding really nice looking places, but do you have any idea how far away from work, school, or play it really is? What can you expect from housing in Metro Denver? Is the home buying process different or the same as where you come from? How can you avoid making a serious and expensive mistake?
I am the missing piece to your puzzle. As a long time Colorado resident, professional, life-long Realtor, I make it my business to help you make the right decisions. No, I don't make your decisions...I help guide you, by giving you the necessary information to make an informed decision.

Kristal Sells Denver ... and the 'burbs The Mile High City of Denver is also a county, it is surrounded by 8 additional Counties: Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, Jefferson, Adams, Broomfield, Weld and Boulder Counties. Many people visiting Denver for the first time are surprised to learn that Denver, even though it has an altitude of 5280 feet is Not in the mountains! Denver is actually the lowest part of the metro region. The city is nestled up to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, which offer outstanding views for miles in any direction and protection from the elements. Contrary to popular belief, Denverites do NOT wade hip deep in snow all winter long. In fact, we play golf, ride bikes, run, walk and play outdoors all year long. If it's snow we crave, we head for the hills, because that where we keep it! If you are considering relocating to the Denver metro area, let's talk. Born in New Jersey, I am a Colorado transplant. I can identify with the stresses and confusion of moving from one place to another and can offer you assurance and assistance. Don't worry about me twisting your arm, I'm very low key, I'll give you the unbaised facts, perhaps show you around my town and let you decide for yourself. High pressure sales is not my style. If this appeals to you, pick up the telephone and call me. I welcome your call! Kristal Kraft 303-589-2022
