The only way to do great work is to love what you do.
I love and am passionate about my work, my kids, my friends and family. With my 10+ years of real estate experience, when I am working with you I am an able advisor and fierce yet fair advocate. A real estate transaction can be complex and it’s my job to help you navigate through the process and provide a full sense of understanding and comfort to create a positive and exciting experience.
My goal is to first understand your personal real estate priorities and then, to provide advice and guidance on how best to achieve the results you desire. My extensive experience in this area allows me to bring the knowledge and skills you deserve to every transaction.
To be in touch and stay in touch, is the key to my long-term relationships with clients and the community and this same philosophy permeates my life. You may feel confident in contacting me with any questions about real estate, service providers, the community or its resources at any time. I am a full-service realtor whose attention to detail does not end when the papers are signed.
"Krista is or should be your go to professional real estate agent. Krista is organized knows how to get things done and makes sure that all is done smoothly and efficiently. We got a record price for our condo and the buyer was happy with their purchase. Krista used a professional photographer and all of the graphical brochures showed it. The cleaning crew she sent and the stagers did an amazing job. Folks if you want top dollar for your home call Krista at PorchLight now."
"Krista Allard recently helped me purchase my home in Old Town Longmont, and it was a very positive experience. Krista’s professionalism, organization and knowledge helped keep everything on track. This was not easy as we were working with two contingencies, and two other real estate agents. Krista went out of her way to ensure that everyone was working together, even reaching out to the other parties when deadlines were approaching.
Her real estate expertise was very evident, and I always felt like I was in good hands. I would recommend Krista to anyone looking for a home in Longmont!!"
"As a first time home buyer, Krista was extremely helpful in keeping me encouraged and really responsive to all my questions. In such a hard and competitive market she kept finding homes that met my needs and wants, and provided tips to help me make competitive offers. Even though it took several offers, she was always on the lookout for the next house and kept my spirits up. She was flexible around my schedule and was able to get leads on houses before they even went on market. Krista was with me every step of the way in buying my first home, and I am so grateful."
First Time Homebuyer
"We had already hired Krista as our realtor, having spent 1.5 months with her showing us houses and planning out the sale of our home, when we realized that the house we really wanted to buy was a new house she was also selling. This situation would have made us nervous in anyone else's hands, but Krista went on to prove to us over and over again what a fantastic realtor, and person, she really is. When her role switched to Transaction Agent in the purchase of our new home, she made sure we were fully informed at all times about all of the legal ramifications of our new arrangement, and the protections for us, for her, and for the seller, in this potentially more complicated situation. She did right by us all every step of the way. In fact, in an absolutely brutal housing market, our sale and purchase went more smoothly than anyone else we have known on the front range in the past 5 years. In a time when we've watched so many friends' transactions fall through over and over again, we feel extremely lucky to have ended up working with such a gifted realtor. She's got a mind like a diamond and a heart of gold, guys. She's ethical, she works hard, she has great attention to detail, she's extremely smart, she's incredibly knowledgeable about everything real estate (even the weird stuff), and she's got excellent connections to boot. We made more than we'd ever expected on the sale of our old home, with zero hiccups, and our new home is not only our dream made reality, but has already added value. We could not be happier with how everything has turned out. We'd also like to add a huge shout out to Dennis Korpela and Big Sky Builders for building this gorgeous house that we love so much. We cannot recommend Krista more highly, and look forward to working with her any opportunity we can get (although we certainly don't plan on moving any time soon!)"

"Krista Allard is a wonderful person and an AMAZING realtor! She is very professional yet very personable. She is extremely confident and competent (which unfortunately is rare these days) works very hard for her clients and pays attention to every little detail of the home buying experience. She is willing to go the extra mile for her clients from start to finish of the contract - the entire process to close. She really knows her market and is very knowledgeable about Denver, CO and the surrounding communities. Phaedra and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home or moving from out of state to Colorado."

Our Certified Market Expert designation is the only one of its kind. Agents choose from three area-specific certifications—Central Denver, South Suburbs or North Suburbs—and become experts in that area.
Agents who earn this elite designation have not only completed our Market Ed courses—learning the ins and outs of their specialty area's cities and neighborhoods—but they've previewed dozens of homes in each area, giving them an insider's perspective on the nooks and crannies of the metro Denver area. They know what kind of architecture each area offers, and also know the special restaurants, shops, and attractions that make each neighborhood unique.
When you choose an agent with one or more CME designations, you know you're getting a trusted advisor who will guide you in making the smartest real estate investment possible while also finding the community that's the right fit for you.
