"I feel tremendously fortunate to have connected with Krisanne during the process of searching for my first home. From the start, Krisanne really listened to and understood what I was looking for in a home and what was important to me in every aspect including price, location, and the type of house and neighborhood I wanted.
She was great at finding time around my crazy, fluctuating schedule to look at homes and meet with me. She would often go check out homes that fit my criteria even if I was unavailable and was honest and specific with me when she did not feel they were a good buy.
During the process of making an offer, Krisanne was really helpful in explaining what everything meant and what it was for. She even took care of scheduling my inspection and sewer scope, always making sure that I approved of the prices and scheduled times. Krisanne was incredibly proactive in helping me get the best deals and service every step of the way and I am so appreciative of the time and energy she spent helping me find and close the deal on my home.
If I ever sell or buy again, I will 100% be contacting Krisanne and I will continue to tell anyone who is looking buy or sell how awesome she was for me."

"I bought a house in Seattle (well Lynnwood) in 2009, thinking I was there for a long haul. By the end of 2010, I had to relocate out of state for work and the house was worth much less than what I owed. I turned it into a rental and had great tenants but the rent didn't cover the mortgage so I decided to go down the path of a short-sale.
Krisanne spearheaded the entire effort for me, working with the bank, my property manager, my tenants and potential buyers. She made the entire convoluted process of the short-sale more manageable and stuck with it throughout the process. She stayed on top of the paperwork for me and just really took charge of the situation, which was a boon for me being out of state and not able to dedicate a lot of phone time to the efforts.
She was also the person that helped me buy my house and as a buyer's agent, she is an excellent resource and full of knowledge of the Seattle market and the neighborhoods. She's realistic and down to earth on her approach, not trying to be pushy or rush you into a purchase that doesn't meet your needs, just to make a sale. I recommend her if you're buying, selling or just looking at rentals on the way to buying. If I ever end up moving out the way again, I would not hesitate to contact her. Although with all the work she had to do for me, she may not want me as a client again... Thanks Krisanne for sticking with me through all of this!"

"My husband and I worked with Kerstin to purchase a home last fall 2009. Kerstin was incredibly patient with us as we spent a few months narrowing down what we wanted out of a house. Kerstin's depth of knowledge was so helpful and she was so wonderful about providing us with all the necessary information and then letting us come to our own conclusions and decisions about each house we were interested in. We felt she truly looked out for us and our best interest throughout the entire process. We were shopping in a difficult market. We are so grateful that we could work with someone like Kerstin who could help us find an amazing house in the perfect location within our budget. I would highly recommend Kerstin to anyone considering buying or selling a home."

"We hired Kerstin as our Real Estate Agent in 2008. Kerstin amazed me with her knowledge in her field. She walked me through the purchase of my first home in a manner I was quite impressed by. She was courteous, professional, and treated my husband and me like we were her only clients.”

“Kerstin listened intently to what we were looking for in buying a house from out of state. She prepared an excellent list of properties to visit and very quickly helped us to narrow down our list to properties we were very interested in. We were able to secure our home in less time than we anticipated. She carried us through the entire purchase process ensuring that it all went smoothly, which was very valuable to first time homebuyers. She’s also been a great resource when considering improvements and coming up with comparables and market trends. Kerstin is very knowledgeable about the Seattle market and stays informed and on top of available properties throughout the area.”

"Krisanne assisted my husband and I in selling our Edmonds home in April of 2013. Her professionalism was top notch beginning from the very first meeting at our home, to walk throughs, pictures, listing, open houses, and finalizing the actual sale. We have no complaints whatsoever and would wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone, including buyers or seller with complicated transactions and transactions requiring good judgment and advanced negotiating skills!! We worked with Krisanne recently because she assisted us several years ago in our home purchase in Edmonds!! We were living out of state and she juggled her schedule for us and assisted us in making a wise purchase. She's a very pleasant and nice person too!!"

"If you are looking to work with a real estate agent who has knowledge of the market, is patient and kind, and will find you what you are looking for, then you have found the right agent with Kerstin Brooks.

Kerstin was always patient and always willing to show me whatever I wanted to look at without judgement. She was committed to making me happy and content. I have never uncountered another real estate agent like her. If you are looking to buy or sell a piece of property, contact Kerstin and she can help you."
