About Kristen Barnett
Real Estate investment was a family business for Kristen, which is how she first became interested in real estate. She has always valued property ownership as the best investment a person can make.
Kristen understands what it’s like to stand in her clients’ shoes. Relocating several times, buying and selling houses of her own, has afforded Kristen a sensitivity towards her clients’ journey which can be attributed to the first-hand experience gained through her personal real estate transactions.
Kristen, a 22-year resident of Boulder, understands the numerous benefits of life in Boulder Valley, with the unmatched beauty, weather, culture and diversity. She is well connected and actively involved in her community. As a long-time resident, she has navigated her own two children through the Boulder County School District and has gained a full understanding of the diverse needs of families in the community.
Kristen’s tenacious dedication, analytical mindset, problem-solving skills and detail-oriented attitude have made her an invaluable asset to her team and clients. She truly understands that buying and selling can be some of the most important decisions anyone can make and she guides her clients through the entire process to ensure a stress-free experience. For Kristen, being a Realtor is not just a profession, it’s a passion and a calling to be of service to her community and the Boulder area.
"I am so grateful for all of Kristen's assistance to help me purchase my new home. She went so far above and beyond my expectations! The whole process of finding, negotiating and closing on a home has never gone so smoothly. I can't help but think it is because of her knowledge, impeccable attention to details, and ability to listen to my needs. I will not hesitate to refer her to others because of the outstanding job she did! Thank you!"
"Kristen Barnett, at Porchlight Real Estate, was our buyer's agent for a house we just purchased. She was a miracle worker for us—bringing to the table her ability to be thorough in her search for what we were looking for in regards to our budget and vision and her tireless effort in making sure everything was 100% to perfection from start to closing. She was professional and we will absolutely use her again and recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!"

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.
