Kristi's professionalism was clearly demonstrated by her current housing market understanding and knowledge. She was prepared to base our initial asking price on the market (such as the Zillow market estimate other Realtors suggested in their pitches to us), but suggested our property supported a higher price after she toured our home and made real life adjustments. Kristi also provided advice and suggestions regarding what buyers are most likely to notice and critique. This allowed us to focus on minor repairs (sprucing) prior to scheduling of showings. Kristi responded to our questions and concerns very quickly...she was understanding and honest regarding our concerns. We received two offers five days after listing, in the higher price range she suggested we try. Kristi explained the offers to us face-to-face and answered our questions to our satisfaction. Kristi made this experience a VERY pleasant one!
As a mortgage banker, I have worked with Kristi for years. She takes the time to listen to her clients and is responsive to their needs. Kristi uses technology to find them their perfect home, whether a move up buyer or first time home buyer. When listing homes, Kristi will employs this same philosophy, using all types of media to sell their home. I would not hesitate in recommending Kristi.
Kristi was able to take our scattered and incongruent criteria for our first home purchase and find us a variety of homes that really fit the bill. Once we decided on our home of choice, she was extremely diligent and proactive, and made sure all I’s were dotted and T’s were crossed, then walked us through every step of the journey. It was actually fun buying a home—not scary like some of our friends had cautioned.
As a Mortgage Banker, I am always pleased to learn my clients are using Kristi as their Realtor. When Kristi is involved in the transaction, I know the deal will close with no surprises or issues. Kristi has incredible attention to detail and excellent follow-through. She conducts all her real estate transactions as ultimate professional. It always pleasure working with her. I categorize Kristi as one of the Extraordinairary Realtors® in the area! I highly recommend her.
The best part about working with Kristi is not worrying about whether or not you would get to the settlement table with your sanity intact. She continually provided me with unsolicited updates as to the status of my transaction, putting me as ease and allowing me to focus on the more ‘fun’ parts of buying a home. I have bought and sold with Kristi several times over the past decade, and feel 100% confident each time I send someone her way .
We wanted to buy new construction, and growing up in the construction industry, Kristi knew exactly what to look for in a builder. After contract, she routinely walked the home under construction with us to explain the ‘bones’ of our home, and to ensure that we knew what was in the walls once we moved in. It was a great body of knowledge to have, and it was nice that she took the time to do that even after her commission check was basically in the mail .
When we had an issue with an item on a home inspection, Kristi immediately located the best of the best in professional resources to determine the correct course of action to remedy the problem. We had our hearts set on that home, and with her quick thinking, coordination and guidance, we were still able to make it happen –and the best part is that she had the seller pay for everything .
Kristi was always looking for us and kept us updated with just the right info. She listened to our wants and found us a great home after looking just a short time. When things got complicated in negotiations her experience paid big in decisiveness. Kristi is honest and a great realtor. I would recommend her to anyone.
To sum Kristi up in word word is excellent! I have purchase two other houses over my lifetime and I have never had a better representative. Kristi was always available to help with any question or concern that we may have had. I liked Kristi so much, she is #1 on my list as my selling agent in the future. I can honestly say that the purchase of this home would not have occurred if Kristi was not my agent. I highly recommend Kristi to anyone who wants someone that will represent them will every bit of energy she possess!!!!!!
When we listed our home with Kristi, we had no idea that she would get it sold so quickly, and with more money coming than initially estimated. There were no hiccups, and we walked away from the settlement table with exactly what we expected. Critical, because we were buying our NEXT home that same day a few hours later. We would highly recommend her services .
Kristi had wonderful, inexpensive ideas for staging our house and her market research for price was on point. Her advice on when to list the house was excellent, and our home had a dozen showings and three offers the first weekend it was on the market. She was readily available even though she was handling multiple transactions in the same time frame. I have already recommended Kristi to friends and neighbors
Kristi was beyond amazing! She helped me buy my first home which can be a scary process. She was always available via phone call, text, or email day or night. Not to mention she worked her busy schedule around both my boyfriend and my work schedules. She was even willing to come to me to pick up documents in order to keep the process expedited and on time. Kristi is very knowledgeable and was always able to answer all of our questions honestly and accurately in a way we felt comfortable, making sure we understood everything that was taking place. Both her down-to-earth demeanor and professionalism made things enjoyable overall. We were so satisfied with Kristi that I have already recommended friends to her that are thinking about buying their first home, especially those that have delayed because they are nervous or don't know what steps to take. I have assured them that Kristi will find them a home and do whatever it takes to get them to settlement and make them happy homeowners! Even since settlement Kristi has still been here for us every step of the way and readily available for any questions we have had. In the future when we upgrade and buy a larger home I know Kristi will be our first choice and we look forward to working with her again!
Kristi is a master of negotiation. In my case, without her skill I wouldn't have gotten my house, and for a first time buyer (as I am) she gave me countless tips about what I should be looking for. My overall review is that she is an 11 out of 10 -- with her help I found my perfect first home.
My office has worked on multiple transactions with Kristi over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing or selling a home. She is thorough, dedicated, honest, and caring. Settlements with Kristi are always a complete success! And FUN!!!
Kristi staged our home and took multiple beautiful pictures for potential buyers to view! It was priced perfectly according to the market value and its niche! She always phoned ahead to let us know of viewings, and never pressured us to show our home when we weren't ready! Kristi was extremely patient with all of our questions, and answered them promptly and honestly! In addition, Kristi helped us find a new home! She gave sound advice on a number of neighborhoods in the area and worked within a budget that WE felt comfortable with, not the amount of loan for which we were approved! Kristi worked well with the other realtors involved in the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home! We would definitely recommend Kristi Jacobs Woods to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! She's top notch!
Kristi was very knowledgeable in all of the processes of buying and selling our multiple homes. She kept us informed through all steps, and had a lot great ideas for cost effectively staging our home with what we had to ensure we received our asking price. We would definitely recommend Kristi and will use her again.
Kristi is an outstanding realtor! She helped us find and purchase our first home and made the process nice and fast. Tell her what you think you want, what you’d rather avoid and you will get something you didn’t even dream about! She gave us valuable advice regarding construction, appliances, and even landscaping. If you want to buy a house – call any old realtor; if you want to buy the perfect one – call Kristi!
Kristi helped me purchase my current home, and sold my former home. She made the buying process seem simple and easy, although there is much more going on behind the scenes. She was there throughout each step in the process and was always very responsive with any questions that we had. Seeing listings for other homes for sale in the neighborhood vs our listing, it was clear we choose the right realtor.
Kristi helped us sell our home years ago when we were restationed out of Maryland, now that we are moving back she is the first person I called! She's trustworthy, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable!
Kristi found this beautiful home, and even after an initial "not so awesome showing," she's the one that encouraged me to go back and think about it differently (ie. different paint colors and less "stuff" in the house). Turns out, i just bought my dream home. When we had a less-than-thorough appraiser's report to deal with before settlement, which resulted in a failed final inspection, Kristi worked so quickly to get the necessary work completed that we didn't even have to move the closing date. She's a rockstar, and i'm so glad to have her!
As a first time home buyer of course I was nervous. Kristi was there every step of the way to make this process as easy and enjoyable as possible and found my fiancé and I our perfect first home. we couldn't of asked for a better experience!!!
risti's experience, attention to detail and her awareness of new laws and rules in the real estate discipline made her an invaluable resource and agent. We can't say enough about our incredibly positive experience.
Kristi has been my Agent for the purchase of two homes and the sale of one. She knows the area and the market, and is great at working with first timers. Kristi is also great at keeping everything on schedule and moving along. I recommend her to all of my friends.
Kristi has been great through out my 10+ years of being a home owner. She is always responsive, helpful, and pays attention to what her clients needs/wants are in the process of either buying or selling. I have used Kristi to buy my first townhouse that was a "for sale by owner" and she was great walking me through the unknown even after we looked at 30 other houses. She stood by and helped me make my first home buying experience easy and smooth. She has since sold my first house for me and helped me upgrade. Again- we looked at about 20 more listings and it got to the point that when we drove up she would look and ask, "do you even want to get out"? She knew what I was looking for and when we walked into my current home, it was the opposite, "do you even need to look at the rest of the house...this is it!" and she was right! She will take you to look even if she knows it's not what you want just to put your mind at ease that you aren't missing out on "the one". She is smart, savvy, and keeps your vision of what you want in sight at all times. She makes what you want happen and is available 24/7. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants their interest put first and an agent that gives everything she has to her clients! Thanks Kristi for all you have done for me, my friends, and my family that have bought, sold, or used you for advice for free!
I never, ever thought I'd be living in the house I am right now! Kristi not only found the house of ours dreams, but we were able to negotiate quickly and at a great price. Working with Kristi was such a positive experience. She knows the area incredibly well and has such a fun personality it made the entire process wonderful and easy.
Kristi has helped me purchase 2 properties and sell 1. Throughout the entire process she was professional, receptive, and knowledgeable about all things real estate. I felt as though I could contact her at any time with questions or concerns, and she would immediately get back to me. She truly has her clients best interests at heart, and I would highly recommend her.
Kristi helped me turn a late night pipe dream into a complete reality. As a first time home buyer, I basically walked blindly into the process of purchasing a home. To further complicate matters, I fell in love with a short-sale property. Kristi served as my coke bottle glasses and gave me the ability to see my vision and led me step-by-step as I found, bid, contracted, and signed the line for my first house; this house being the place I now call home.
I was a first time home buyer with little knowledge of the process and what I wanted other than knew I wanted a home. Kristi was honest, friendly and patient and helped me find a great home. Her knowledge of Frederick made the whole process go smoothly. I highly recommend her as an agent she has the clients best interest in mind.
Kristi was great to work with! She was very responsive and completely accomodating. I called her on a Friday afternoon to see a house (the one I ended up buying) she was able to meet me to see the house that same evening. Kristi is very honest and isn't at all pushy, she really has her clients best interests at heart! Not to mention her sense of humor made the home search that much more fun! (:
Kristi was extremely knowledgeable about the area and current market trends. I was working on a tight deadline and she "made it happen". I highly recommend her services
