Kristen is not only my trusted realtor but she became a fast friend. I love how detail oriented she is and kind. She knows how to communicate well with me and she has taught me a lot about real estate. On this most recent rental property deal- she is the reason why my low ball offer was chosen over a half dozen other full price offers. I know it’s because she is so easy to work with. Everyone from my mortgage lender to my attorney and my insurance agent were blown away at her skills and knowledge. She doesn’t miss a beat and she always goes the extra mile. She has patience, smarts and experience. I trust her so much I bought a house without being able to do my own walk through. I didn’t need to because Kristen was on it and provided me a thorough video tour. She does her homework and knows the nuts and bolts of all local municipal codes. I really admire that Kristen can juggle a million tasks while making me feel like I’m her only client. I can’t wait to do another project with her.

Kristen Hughes made dreams come true for us. She was always on point with deadlines, inspections, surveys, contract negations etc. She would check in with us regularly throughout the buying process and deeply cared and quickly addressed our hesitations and fears. She found us an amazing property for a great price and in a remarkably quick timeframe. She deeply cares for people and their home buying dreams. She’s down-to-earth. She is a true local, and very tapped into the regional market. She’s been around a long time and her knowledge and love for the area is palpable and contagious. We cannot recommend Kristen enough.

We were interested in buying a new home in the Ridgway area, but didn't really know much about all the steps we needed to take or about the local market here and what it had to offer. Kristen was able to get us out right away to start looking at houses and on the first day out she added one more house to the tour that turned out to be the perfect house for us. After we found the home we wanted, Kristen helped us to complete the purchase, overseeing and ensuring that all the needed steps where addressed and performed by all parties to ensure our successful home purchase. It was not a simple purchase, there were a lot of ins and outs, but Kristen helped us to manage the various steps so it did not feel overwhelming and she went above and beyond to make sure all parties were actually doing what their obligations required them to do. In the end we got our house for less than the asking price and moved into the house exactly a month and a half after we first looked at it. We couldn't be more pleased and we would highly recommend Kristen to any interested home buyers.
