"As first time home buyers, Kristen did an amazing job walking us through the process. She was available whenever we needed her and worked around our busy schedules. Kristen helped us know when we needed to act quickly to get an offer in but never made us feel pressured. She continued to check in and help us even after we bought our house. We ended up buying a place that we knew needed quite a bit of work but everyone who comes out to help us with projects or check out the house remarks that we got a great deal on a solid home in a fantastic neighborhood."

First Time Home Buyer
"I had the great pleasure to work with Kristen Nelson as my realtor. Kristen is so helpful and knowledgable about the real estate market in the Denver area that I felt very comfortable. Kristen was very patient with me when I completely changed my mind about my needs for a home. She took all of the changes in stride and found me the perfect home. This is the biggest purchase that I have ever made alone but I was not anxious because Kristen was so calm that I felt the same. I will always be grateful to Kristen for finding me the perfect home!"
"Best realtor I've ever done business with! She went way beyond the expected role. Was always on top of every detail with my move both as a buyer and a seller. Would highly recommend!"
Buyer & Seller
"Our relationship with Kristen Nelson started as we were selling my parent's home in California. She was very supportive in helping us read through the documents from our realtor with each step, mind you this was not her contract. She was open to helping us understand the process. Eventually we needed to find a realtor for a home purchase in Ridgway, Colorado. We wanted a small company, much like PorchLight, for our home search and enlisted Kristen's help in finding someone in that area. She listened and asked all the right questions. After a few days, she had interviewed 2 people for us and produced a realtor that was a perfect match, personality and all. Again, Kristen was there for us as we started to ask detailed questions on our home purchase in the mountains. Extremely helpful. We purchased our dream home with great success this last summer. As time progressed, we called on Kristen to help us sell our house in Denver. She came prepared to offer us such wonderful services. She also helped us create a list of things to make our home shine. She offered us names of contractors, allowing us to choose and work with them. She took great pride to ensure the jobs were completed correctly. Her knowledge of the painting, roofing, decking and inspection process were extremely beneficial. After many weeks of prep, involving countless follow-up and suggestions, she helped us achieve the perfect value for our home and it sold within days on the market. During a year that required the selling and buying of 3 different homes, Kristen's support was immeasurable. Knowing someone who cares with this kind of detail and insight was so wonderful. We could not have done this without her knowledge, comfort and guidance. Best of all she listened to our needs and helped us find solutions for our personal style. We highly recommend Kristen to anyone needing this detailed support and advice for a home sale or purchase."
"Kristen alleviates the fears and uncertainties of the competitively paced real estate market in the Denver area. My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Kristen earlier this month. She is by far the most professional and enthusiastic realtor I have ever met. Kristen was extremely prompt and coherent with communications both through email and phone conversations. At any point that we had a question, Kristen would discuss and facilitate above and beyond what we would expect. Kristen brought forth an extremely astute and observant knowledge of local events and procedures unique to Denver that out of state buyers such as ourselves would not have been aware of. Kristen invests the time to understand her clients' needs and wants. There was never a rush to get off the phone until she was certain that all of our concerns were addressed in a professional and perceptive manner. Kristen boasts an extremely detailed documentation of the transaction from start to finish, which proved to be especially useful as she was able to quash a few last minute surprises on closing day. With Kristen's incisive and expeditious documentation and furtherance we were able to accurately achieve closing within our target time frame. Moreover, she tended to our post transaction necessities by ensuring that the aforementioned surprises on closing day were addressed and brought to justice by the title company. We will certainly be contacting Kristen Nelson's services for all future home sales and I would strongly recommend that you do so as well."
