David Herring
"Kristin Johnston is someone I would call the consummate real estate professional. She answered every question I had to the best of her ability, and answered questions about the process that truthfully was outside the scope of duties. Kristin took the concerns of our family as a whole into consideration when helping us determine exactly the right fit for our family, but was astute enough to concern herself with the individual concerns of each family member. Kristin helped us truly understand the information we had on comparable properties in our area, help provide us with information on inspectors when asked, and never allowed us to feel “in the dark” in terms of communication. In fact, I don’t believe that there was ever a time that we would attempt to contact Kristin that we were not communicated with within an hour. That kind of responsiveness is almost unheard of. Kristin was so detailed oriented that she was able to provide us with guidance, “post” closing and helped us to truly feel comfortable in our new home. I highly recommend her for any real estate venture, as an active agent that will represent her client, to the best of her ability. Kristin helps to reinforce the idea that there is professionalism and heart in a market that has been bad mouthed in the last twenty years. Kristin, I publicly thank you once again! " - David Herring, 2014
The Searing Family
"Excellent job and service!"
Babak Chubak
"Kristin Johnston was excellent and professional. She was of critical help in handling a very difficult sale. Thank you, and good luck to you too."
Richard and Mary
"I thank you for your involvement in the sale of our house, and professional attitude in handling everything. You did a very good job in keeping everything in the right perspective and moving along in spite of my help."
Maria Perez Oberbruner
"We had been contemplating a move from our home for a couple of years, but were not ready to sell until just this past summer. Throughout that time, Kris stayed in contact with us and always demonstrated courteousness, sensitivity, and a professionalism that is rarely found today. Kris acted swiftly when we felt ready to put our home on the market. Within days we were having regular showings, almost on a daily basis, and our house SOLD in just two months! All the while, Kris kept in communication with us, as well as the other parties involved. She never missed a beat, and always was friendly and organized. We will never forget the helpful and amazing service we had with Kris Johnston. THANKS KRIS!!!"
- Curtis Becker
"Once Jess and I knew we were going the route of purchasing a home, Kristin was the only option we even considered. Kristin has worked with various friends and family and they have always had very positive results, our experience was no different. Once we got in contact with Kristin, listings came quickly, viewings shortly after that and once we decided to put an offer in, Kristin was extremely responsive to all parties which helped the buying process go much more quickly and smoothly than I think it would have with anyone else. I can easily say, beyond any doubt, that Kristin is the best person I have worked with in any professional setting. She has a personal touch, is extremely responsive and clearly cares about her clients wants and needs. In the future, we will recommend all family and friends to Kristin and the next time we need to do anything real estate related, she'll be the first, and only, person we contact."
"Now that the closing is over, I want to thank you for all your hard work selling my parents house. Dad seemed pleased by the outcome when I talked to him yesterday. From the time of our meeting in April and throughout the listing period when you had dealings with almost everyone in the family (and some not in the family), you really impressed me with the energy you put into the task and your positive outlook. Thanks again."
Mark and Susan Grosskopf
"Kris is a true professional! Awesome to work with! She made the purchase very easy on us! Thanks a ton"
Kim Weber
"I didn't know where to begin to look for a realtor who I could trust with the task of handling my short sale. I happened upon Kristin's website and I thought she looked honest and friendly. It also helped that she was an animal lover, like me. I definitely made the right choice in putting my trust in Kris. She constantly communicated with the mortgage company and me and made the process as smooth and painless for me as she could. I really appreciate all that she did."
- Stefanie and Jacob Kivi
"As first time home buyers my husband and I really didn't know much about the home buying process. Sure we had watched many TV shows about first time home buyers, but let me tell you...there is so much more to it! We were referred to Kristin Johnston from Carrie Williams at Providence Home Lending as we did not have a realtor in mind. Kristin was great to work with right off the bat. She had the ability to make all of those over our head, daunting details, easy to understand. Kristin made it simple. We told her what we wanted and she sent us listings to view. We'd tell her what we wanted to see and she handled contacting the seller and scheduling showings from there. Our home search was quite short and sweet as we fell in love with the second house we saw, but before that we changed our preferences and criteria a few times. Never once did we feel like a bother as Kristin was completely flexible in accommodating our changes and focus right away. With today's many technological channels of communication readily available to many of us, Kristin utilizes all of them in the most effective way to communicate with you. If there was a question that popped into my head, I could send her an email or text and receive a response in almost record setting time. At one point our email chain became so long my phone had a hard time loading them...that's how good she is! My husband and I would highly recommend Kristin to anyone looking for a home, whether a first time buyer or veteran of the home buying process! The home buying process can be overwhelming in many ways, but Kristin has a way of making it effortless. Thank you Kristin for helping us find our perfect first home, you were a incredibly great to work with."
Kim and Scott Krueger and Family
"Dear Kris, How can we thank you for making our home-buying experience SO incredibly wonderful? You were professional, yet totally keeping us at ease. You were all over the details, yet so laid back. Thank you for your full and immediate attention to every one of our inquiries and needs. You are excellent at what you do! We also want to thank you for the Home Depot Gift Card and the donation made in our names to the animal shelter. How thoughtful!! We are loving our new home, yard, and neighborhood and think of you quite often. Thank you for making this memory such a pleasant one for us! Very warm regards!"
Kourtney Hunt
""As a first-time homebuyer, I had an excellent experience with Kristin as my realtor. From the first time I emailed her with my interest in a property all the way up until the keys to my dream condo were in my hand, Kristin had excellent communication and helped me the entire way. Not only did she have outstanding communication with me, she also stayed in contact with the seller’s realtor as well as my lender. Kristin went above and beyond any and every expectation I envisioned when I purchased my first home. Kristin kept me well-informed and was always on top of different properties that I wanted to view. Kristin is truly passionate for her buyers, very personable, all while carrying a professional demeanor and not being pushy."
Mark and Kathy
""Kristin was a pleasure to work with. With her high energy, she sought out many prospective properties early in our search. As first time home buyers, her knowledge in real estate was a comfort; knowing that she was advocating for us. She was quick to respond to emails, so we never felt like we were left hanging. I would definitely recommend her."
Amber and Brent Babcock
"We were referred to Kris Johnston by our home stager, Laura Baker, of Ready,Set...Sell! Home Staging and Redesign. It was imperative that the Realtor we chose was well versed in the complicated short sale process we were about to undergo. Kris was knowledgeable, confident and assertive. With her guidance, our home sold in just over 4 months on the market at the full appraisal price, which was 16 thousand dollars more than the starting price quoted to us by another short sale realtor. Kris was extremely attentive and thorough as we both navigated the banking system and dealt with the many unexpected difficulties associated with short sales. Her support was vital as our patience was tested. Not once did we feel alone in this process as Kris responded to our questions and concerns quickly and accurately as well as defending our interest through consistent and effective communication with our bank. We would recommend Kris Johnston to any individual for any type of real estate activity as we are sure she has the interest of her client as the highest priority."
Allison Theyerl
"It has been a pleasure working with you. I would DEFINITELY recommend you to anyone! You have been very prompt in communicating with me, you go out of your way to get answers for me, and have helped me to feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. And on top of that, you are very professional and personable!"
Katie and Griffin James
"Kris was the perfect choice for helping my husband and I buy our first house. She took the time to explain every detail of the process and answered every question we had. She was very thorough and knowledgeable and she worked very hard to get us what we wanted. Sometimes she would email us at 10 at night or 6 in the morning, showing her dedication to her clients. We trusted her completely and would recommend her to anybody looking to buy a home, especially first time buyers."
Scott Halverson, Wells Fargo
"As a Real Estate professional in the Greater Milwaukee Area, I have worked with many other industry professionals over the years. I have had the privilege of working with Kristin on several transactions. She is very detailed orientated, professional, and very knowledgeable in her industry. I certainly hope to continue doing business with Kristin in the future, and I would not hesitate to recommend her with extreme confidence to anyone looking for assistance in the real estate market."
Bob Beisbier , President , BK Home Inspections
"Kristin is a hard working Realtor who takes a personal approach. She treats her clients like family and is there from start to finish and well beyond. Working with Kristin has always been a pleasure and I look forward to seeing her and being a part of her clients transactions."
Lorie and Mike Stasik
"Kris is absolutely the best Buyers Agent any one could have. As many changes as we asked her to make to our search criterion, and all of the places we couldn't decide on, she didn't blink an eye to help us. She was always on top of the game (so to speak) and took very good care of our interests. She has an excellent professional demeanor and a wonderful personality. We have already recommended her to all of our friends and family. We want them to experience what a top notch real estate professional is all about. Someone who looks out for your best interest, and not her own. Kris will also have a special place in our hearts and has already become like family to us. We truly respect her. In the future, if we ever need any other housing needs, we would use her again!"
Anders and Lisa Vetch
"Kristin was completely attentive to our needs! She gave us great insight into what to look for in a house, in terms of potential issues with homes, resale tips, etc. She was also a great partner from the first home she showed us, until 20 houses later, when we chose a house, and signed the papers! We would definitely recommend her!"
Ingra and Micah Wesbey
"Thank you for all that you have done. We are finally in our new home. Micah is finding more and more projects to do. We have really enjoyed working with you. Micah wants to have you over in a few months to see all the improvements he has done to the house. Thank you for always getting information to us promptly, and working with us to make our dream come true."
Mary Ann Searing
"Kristin Johnston is prompt, knowledgeable, thorough, and good natured. She responded patiently to all of my questions and concerns. She even came to my new home shortly before I moved in and spent time helping me visualize where to place all of my furnishings. Also, with her expert assistance, my house sold in only one day! I would highly recommend her to others."
Jayne Schmitz
"We recently contracted with Kris Johnston to list and sell our Aunt's home. Kris was professional, warm, caring, and friendly. I felt like we were dealing with a personal friend. Kris suggested ways in which we could make my Aunt's home more marketable and recommended individuals who could help us in these areas of improvement. Her recommendation for an asking price seemed quite reasonable and apparently it was a good price. Kris received an offer and we accepted an offer just $900 under the listing price, which was obtained at the first open house. Our Aunt's house was on the market, with an accepted offer and closing in a time span of just over one month. I truly feel that the enthusiasm Kris demonstrates in selling and marketing her listings must be apparent in every listing she has. I would recommend her services to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home. She is very good at what she does. I am personally very grateful for her attention and expertise."
Patricia Schmitz
"Kris was very knowledgeable in her field, showed a personal interest in my needs, and keep me informed throughout the whole transaction. She listened carefully, was prompt on all showing appointments and was always very professional. Kris's quality of service exceeded my expectations!"
Kathy and Ron Mueller
"Kristin, thank you so much for all your help in selling our house. We had a lot of faith in you and we were right! You are a very hard worker and the best! Thanks again!" Kathy and Ron Mueller
Mike and Meagan Kula
"As we looked for a real estate agent to help us find and purchase our second home, my wife and I had a better idea of what we wanted in an agent than we'd had the first time through the process. We knew we wanted a person who would listen to us and take our needs and desires into consideration as we searched the market. We knew we wanted someone accessible, attentive, and trustworthy. And perhaps even most of all, we knew we wanted someone we just "clicked with" as a person. Luckily for us, we found Kris. She was everything we had hoped and expected an agent would be, and she helped make our search as stress-free as I imagine buying a home could ever be. With such a big decision facing us, it was wonderful knowing we had someone we could trust on our side, and in the end, we couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Kris. Without her, I'm not sure we'd now be living in our "dream home."
Robert Krueger
"After my first interview with Kristin, I thought she might be the person to handle the sale of my home. I was right!"
Ben and Lisa Berg
"Kris, thank you so much for all of the time and energy you put into this long journey with us! You are so professional, yet personal, and we have appreciated your attitude, patience, and expertise through this process. We have had such a positive experience with you. Thank you for everything! We will be recommending you to our friends that are considering buying!"
Michael and Pamela Schalk
"Kris was fabulous!!! Her enthusiasm, efficiency, eagerness and excellent ability to relate just made selling my home effortless on my part. Since I was soon to be married and enjoying the prospects of the home we had found, I understood that it was necessary to sell mine. However, it still tugged at my heart. Kris understood this and made every aspect very personal and reassuring. She had everything in order for the people that looked at my home, packets of information for them to take AND she had it sold in four days!!!! My fiancee and I had found a home we loved prior to meeting Kris, but she was also kind enough to search for and take us to see some properties just so we would have real peace of mind about the purchase we were pretty sure of. As a bonus, we have kept a friendship over the year since I sold my home. Thank you Kris!"
Rachel and Tighe Ittner
"My husband and I were looking for our first home. We had an idea of what we were looking for, but had little idea of what to do next. I called my friends that had recently purchased houses, and asked who they used and if they liked them. The response was the same. "No", they did not like their realtor. So, I started by calling three realtors, and only Kris seemed not only willing, but very helpful. That alone meant a lot to us. We set up a meeting with her and were immediately impressed with her. When we went on viewings with Kris, she informed us of potential problem areas that we did not know to look for. Kris was always available for last minute showings. That is how we found our house. We called Kris with a house that we wanted to see, and she got us in ASAP. The house was only on the market for one day. Kris helped us draw up the offer (she helped us decide how much to offer) on the back of her car! The house had an offer already coming in. Kris kept us informed of the seller's decision to counter-offer and explained exactly what it meant. She came into the office on her day off, to aide us in the signing of the counter offer. When she called on Father's Day, to tell us that we were accepted, I could not have thanked her enough. She helped us through the rest of the process: explaining what earnest money was, and how the rest of the process will go. She came to our closing, and patiently waited to answer questions. She also bought us our first housewarming gift. My husband and I could not have been happier with Kris. She took time for us on her weekends, holidays, and days off. She informed us of her vacation time, days in advance. Her warm, welcoming, and cheerful personality made us feel comfortable throughout the process. We will definitely be using Kris as our realtor for our next home and for selling our current home when the time comes. We feel that we were very fortunate to have such an awesome realtor. I would have no problem recommending Kris to my family and friends. She helped us so much. Thanks Kris!"
