Kristen was amazing to work with. She was always prompt for appointments, and available whenever we had a question (I had MANY).

She provided several options for us as our buying agent and never wavered when we had trouble making up our minds.

A+++ Best Realtor in the Gainesville / Alachua County area!

My wife and I had been through a home search on 2 consecutive occasions 2 years apart. We were not successful. We found Kristen through Zillow reviews. We were both impressed with Kristen’s calm and honest personality . We looked at several homes and Kristen was able to learn about our personal tastes. She eventually found us a home before it officially hit the market. We were able to avoid a bidding war and successfully purchased our first home! We absolutely love it! We will certainly use her services again in the future. You couldn’t pick a better agent here in Gainesville. Many thanks to Kristen!

Kristen is a friend of my daughter, and knew I was looking in a particular neighborhood and kept eye out for me. While I was hospitalized, she contacted my daughter, told me the house I was interested in, had just been reduced $5,000. Within a couple days my offer was accepted, and I got my home. Kristen is Very professional, informative, and great negotiator. I have made referrals to her, and received great feedback from my friends as well.

Kristen helped us find our perfect home. I can’t recommend her highly enough. We were moving to Gainesville for a job at UF and only had 3 months to find a place. Kristen helped take the stress out of buying a house. Being across the country we relied heavily on Kristen and she delivered beyond expectations. We flew in on July 3rd and she made time to show us properties on the 4th and 5th of July. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We put an offer on a place and then Kristen took care of the rest. She recommended great companies for everything that we needed to get done and went to all the inspections. We were able to close on a house within a month of putting in an offer, and it never felt overwhelming. She was wonderful.

Kristen and her Executive Assistant Susan were fantastic! We started with zero house buying experience and she guided us every step along the way. Kristen sat down with us to explain the entire process, including what to expect, things to anticipate, and pitfalls to avoid. We very quickly found a house that we love and she worked tirelessly to make it ours. We couldn’t be happier and will definitely recommend Kristen to all of our friends and family!

I was admittedly worried about the difficulty in selling my property in Gainesville all the way from Arizona. I was afraid I was going to have to make a bunch of costly trips back to FL to make repairs, sign papers and participate in a closing. Kristen eased my concerns from the very beginning. She knows a guy who does everything from yard clean up to painting and drywall. She was very quick in letting me know if there was a change that needed to be made. She was very reliable in getting “paperwork” to me via email when something needed to be signed. She made the process painless for me! Thank you! If Kristen can be amazing from 2000+ miles away, I can only imagine how helpful and wonderful she would be in the same county!

Kristen is so very helpful, knowledgeable, patient, responsive and enjoyable to work with. I was new to Gainesville though I knew the general area I wanted to live in. After serious interest in a couple of houses did not work out, I returned home(out of state) for a while continuing to look at listings she sent. When I found “the perfect house” and asked Kristen to go out and take a look (fully trusting at this point that she well knew my likes and dislikes) she went over and beyond. She went out that morning, we had a detailed FaceTime visit of every inch of the house inside and out and when I knew it was the right house she quickly got together comps so that I could make an offer the next day(same time another offer was being made). Offer accepted and I had time to get to Gainesville during the inspection period and see the house up close and personal. I would never have made an offer, even with the inspection period as backup

If a problem, if it were not for my total trust and confidence in Kristen. She continued to meet all needs and expectations throughout the remainder of the process; I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I’ve been actively looking for a home in Gainesville since January of 2017, at first with another agent at another brokerage, who was well qualified but things just were not working out. What attracted me to the Thomas Group was their web site, which allowed superior search filters, such as “without” a pool, not just “with” one. Isn’t it odd that so many other sites missed this, since so many buyers want a home without a pool? The Thomas website makes it easy to do a simple search, but also offers fine-tuning for those who want it, such as with HOA, without HOA, horse property, adult community, community fitness room, community playground, community pool, gated community, golf community, tennis community, and many, many more. Reducing the “haystack” made it so much easier to identify legitimate prospects for me.

Looking at other reviews here and the activity levels led me to work with Kristen, who turned out to be spectacular in so many ways. After arriving at Gainesville to look at the homes on my initial list from the web site, Kristen zeroed in on the kinds of homes I would like and found the one I bought, just what I wanted.

Kristen is easy to get along with and pleasant, like almost all agents. Some people like me prefer an agent who will volunteer defects or plusses in homes as you tour, and Kristen was excellent in that respect, matching my assessment in areas where I was knowledgeable. Also not shy about saying “I don’t know” but will find out. Some buyers prefer to form their own opinions without distractions from an agent, and this was the mode Kristen started out with, but switched over at my request. Just be aware that buyers have different preferences about tour styles and let your agent know what you prefer.

When time came to make an offer, Kristen did the best job I’ve seen in adjusting comparables to estimate a fair value for the home. The home inspection uncovered a sticking point, and Kristen thoroughly researched the possible remedies and really made it possible for me to buy the home. Kristen never rushed me or pressured me.

This was my seventh home purchase and Kristen was far the most expert and helpful agent I have worked with. Highly, highly recommended.

Kristen always went out of her way to help us with whatever we needed, WHENEVER we needed it. Moving is stressful, but throughout the entire process, she made every stage incredibly easy because of her knowledge and expertise.
