Where's the 6th Star? Kristin was simply amazing to work with on the sale of my home. I threw her several challenges and she rose to the occasion every time. Despite the challenges, Kristin moved the sales process forward to the degree that we were able to close a week earlier than expected. Kristin’s engagement, patience and attention to detail sets her apart from any other real estate professional I have worked with. Cheers to Kristin! -Brandon
Kristin was amazing in helping us find our first home! She was so incredibly patient while showing us properties. While looking at homes, she was great about pointing out features and issues that we, as first time home buyers, might not have paid attention to or would have noticed. She was invaluable in walking us through the negotiation and buying process once we found the house we were excited about. We were so impressed with Kristin's attention to detail and her expert knowledge and advise. With her help, we were able to move into our home just in time to welcome our baby girl. -Laura
Kristin and Marilynn get top marks from me; they were personable, professional, and accommodating. I have now bought and sold a house with Edelweiss Realty, and I am delighted to report from both sides of the transaction that they do a terrific job. Kristin is a go-getter, and I was pleased to work with her during my 2016 sale. Kristin was fastidious in the details, from good advice about staging (and providing a few touches around the house to make it appealing to buyers) and her impressive knowledge of the paperwork, I felt that I was in a good hands. In coordination with Marilynn, Kristin helped me to find an asking price that would move the house quickly while also getting real value for the place. I was happy with the price and the speed of the sale. Kristin was generous in cheerfully talking and texting with me into the evenings during the negotiations with the buyer; just as I first discovered an unpretentious, skilled pro in Marilynn several years ago when I was buying, I found her match in Kristin during my sale. I would work with both of them again happily. I trust their knowledge and experience with the Denver area market, and I loved the personal, friendly, and just plain kind way of working. Kristin was the point person on my sale, and I'll turn to her when I need a realtor again. Did I mention she did all her wonderful work while pregnant? Talk about a person who can juggle a lot of balls in the air at once. Yes, I'd rate Kristin as a strong business woman, a savvy realtor, and a wonderful person. -Neil
Kristin Kleimann and Marilynn Wanamaker are top-notch, both as a team and individually. We purchased our first and second homes with them, and the process from deciding to buy to making the purchase took about a year each time. We have spent a lot of time with Kristin and Marilynn! They were professional, warm and encouraging throughout the search and purchase and we always felt they were looking out for our best interests. We are grateful for the guidance and expertise they shared that ensured we ended up with the home we are so very happy with. -Jolie and Jeff
Kristin first started working with me while I was still out of state, before my move to Colorado. I knew I needed a house fast, as my present home was already under contract and my husband’s job was starting in just a few weeks. From the very beginning, Kristin was incredibly responsive, helpful, and even though I consider myself to be pretty tech-savvy, she introduced me to some incredible tools to help in my search. When I first told Kristin what my budget was and what kind of house I was looking for, I didn’t realize that I was basically asking her to help me find Bigfoot; largely because she never treated me that way.
When we finally arrived in Colorado and I realized that every single house I had looked at merely the week before had already gone under contract, the panic set-in, but Kristin was undaunted. Kristin’s tenacity, creativity, and out-right refusal to be defeated was infectious. She became my ally, my co-strategist, my coach, and my cheerleader. After weeks of nearly daily house showings, negotiating, networking, and attempting to make something, ANYTHING, work, I steeled myself for her to tell me that I needed to lower my standards, increase my budget, or find a new realtor; but that never happened. I consider myself beyond blessed to have found a realtor who was not just looking for the next commission, but was every bit as invested in getting my family in the right home as I was.
When the right home finally came along, actually pulling the deal together and getting to closing turned into a horrific mess. I had to return to Florida to pack up our house there and complete closing, while my husband stayed here working incredibly long hours. Once again, it was Kristin to the rescue! To say that Kristin went “above and beyond” is completely inadequate. She was my eyes and my ears here, she protected my interests, and time and time again she did things she did not have to do, but were the things that needed to be done to make the deal happen. Without Kristin, there was no way we would have ever gotten into the exact house that we needed, in fact, without Kristin, I’m sure we still would be living in a hotel. Kristin is not only an amazing realtor, she is an amazing woman and anyone would be fortunate to have her on their side in this crazy market. -Heather and Will
I would recommend Kristin Kleimann without hesitation. She's exceptionally bright and thorough and knows Denver like the back of her hand. -David
Kristin was an excellent realtor! As first time home buyers, my husband and I were hesitant and leary to purchase a home in this crazy Denver market. However, Kristin was by our side each step of the way. Kristin was very honest, helpful, hardworking, persistent and asked us all the questions to be able to find a home that was right for us. She made us feel very comfortable and allowed us to make a decision at our own pace. My husband and I would highly recommend Kristin and Marilynn to help you sell or purchase your home. -Jessica and Matt
Working with Kristin is great. The amount of time and care she provides to each one of her clients is refreshing. It's not often you find customer service like this. Kristin truly goes above and beyond for her clients. I would recommend Kristin to work with any of my clients. -Brock (Mortgage Loan Originator)
After my son used Kristin and Marilynn (the “Dream Team”) as their Realtors to purchase his first home in 2014, it was a “hands down” decision for me to have them handle my home purchase as well. They were the glue that held an extremely difficult transaction together. I found them to be very knowledgeable, professional and supportive. They helped me dovetail my mountain home sale with my new home sale in Centennial. I never had to worry about the freakish contract deadlines—Kristin and Marilynn were on top of everything, at all times. They were also supportive during the difficult loan process, even when I became cranky. I am happy in my new home, beyond expectation. I only make referrals to my friends when I have extremely positive experiences. I am confident to refer the Dream Team—and have done so with one friend already. -Mary Jo
Kristin and Marilynn at Edelweiss Realty were excellent agents. They took time to understand what type of home we were looking for and what our needs were in buying a new home. They were friendly and easy to talk to. There was no pressure and we appreciated all the help and useful advice used to guide us through our home search. They had an extensive knowledge of neighborhoods and home styles all over the Denver area. Also, they extended themselves to make sure we could ask any questions about anything in the process we didn't understand and for us, being first time home buyers, was a lot. To be honest we wouldn't think of using anyone else as our agents. They made the daunting experience of buying a new home actually fun. -Erik and Laura
Kristin is my real estate life saver -- this past summer, she stepped in to help finalize the sale of my Loft that was already in process. Kristin hit the ground running on the deal and began engaging with the buyers realtor, communicating with my tenant and talking me thru the paperwork and next steps. Her attention to detail is impeccable and everything was done correctly and in a timely manner. I couldn't have asked for the sale to go any easier or more smoothly than Kristin made it! To anyone considering buying or selling a home in the metro Denver area who are searching for realtor -- I wholeheartedly recommend Kristin (and Marilynn)! -Christina
Marilynn and Kristin are the "Dream Team" of real estate brokers. They have helped us with four separate real estate transactions over the past three years and have been amazing to work with. They are knowledgeable about the market and provide excellent research and advice about pricing, timing and trends. They are timely and responsible and make the whole process enjoyable. We are so lucky to have had them on our team. -Minou and Chris
My husband and I recently did both sides of a home deal with Kristin and Marilynn, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Choosing a realtor is difficult, particularly if, like us, you know little to nothing about the business. It takes a huge leap of faith to place the sale of the home you’ve loved and cared for in the hands of two women you barely know, but I’m so glad we did! Kristin and Marilynn make a great team, because their combined knowledge and skillsets complement each other so well. Marilynn seems to know everything there is to know, real estate-wise, about Denver and the surrounding areas, having been in the business here for over 30 years, and with Kristin you get EnergyPlus – plus intelligence, insight, a great sense of humor, and a lot of hard work. Kristin and Marilynn did all the research and boring legwork without us ever having to prompt them, and their knowledge and sense of the markets here combined with their intelligent and instinctive approach to pricing, honesty, transparency and just plain old honor are top-notch. I would never hesitate to work with them again, or recommend them to friends and family. My husband and I decided to just follow their advice from the start, and they were spot-on as far as what to do (and conversely, what to not bother with) in getting the condo ready to sell, and they asked all the right questions on our behalf when it was time to buy. Buying and selling homes is a huge deal for people like us, and I’m glad we put such a big part of our past and future in their more-than capable hands and heads. -Cindy and John
Kristin Kleimann and Marilynn Wanamaker were amazing. My husband and I are relocating from Washington DC to Denver. All we knew is that we wanted a condo with amenities, a view of the mountains, and good quality. They narrowed our search, communicated with us through email sending pictures, and getting our reactions. They were always honest about the pluses and minuses of a place, wanting to ensure that we got the best match, not that they just made a sale. When we came to Denver on a short trip, they showed us several good choices. When we walked into one, we knew it was just right. They held our hands through the negotiation, caught the little mistakes that always happen in paperwork, and even managed our closing from afar.
I cannot overstate the quality of care and just good will that comes through from both of them. If you want agents who simply take joy in helping people find the right home, then Kristin Kleimann and Marilynn Wanamaker are the right team. -Susan and Robert Kristin and Marilynn helped my wife and I purchase our first home in August of 2014. We were a bit crunched for time as the home we had been renting for three years had sold, but Kristin made it possible for us to find a great house and close just in time for our short deadline. Every time we needed to see a house, she was right on it. After going under contract, Kristin was communicative and effective in getting all of the working parts aligned. She always had our best interests and time frame in mind, and was extremely effective through every part of the process. I would recommend Kristin to anyone and can't say enough about how much she went above and beyond. Thanks again Kristin! -Nick and Jessica
When it came time to buy our first home we knew we wanted someone who was professional, knowledgeable, and available to meet our needs. Kristin came through and surpassed any and all expectations. We knew going into the home buying process, that the deck was stacked against us. Especially during a time when the market was so competitive. To make a long story short, our process was not easy. We we...re under contract (with the home we ended up purchasing) for about two months, while we dealt with the lenders, which was not pleasant. Kristin stood with us and supported us every step of the way. In the end, Kristin had not only become part of what we all considered a team, but she very much became a team leader, in more ways than one, and on every occasion where we needed her most. She listened and was attentive to our concerns and apprehensions, but also offered good advice and took the lead when we needed the expertise of a true professional to get us through the most challenging aspects of the process. I had heard so many horror stories about buying a home, but nothing could have prepared us for how hard it really would be. I can genuinely say, without doubt or hesitation, that we would not have our home, which we love, if we didn’t have Kristin along for the ride.
Kristin is someone you want on your side. She will not back down, she will be there for you when you need her, and she will work behind the scenes tirelessly to deal with the lenders, the inspectors, and the agents on the other side of the fence, so to speak.
Buying a home is an incredibly personal and trying process, at least for first time buyers like ourselves. We love our knew home. Every screw and nail that goes into making it our own feels like an investment, because it is. That was a feeling we had not quite anticipated. Looking back, I sincerely know Kristin not only knew how much it meant for us to have a home of our own, but knew, better than we did, how good it would feel to cross that finish line. I will never buy another home without her. A true professional, dedicated to her work, and her clients. -Jeremy and Lindsay
Few things in life are hassle-free. Working with Kristin, is. When you have someone in your corner guiding you through minutiae, advising you on the nuances, of buying a home, it makes a WORLD of difference. She's patient with new buyers, thoroughly versed in laws and regulations, and truly insightful in the front range neighborhood markets! When it comes time to one of the major tasks in life, such as buying or selling your home, I was very fortunate to have worked with Kristin Kleimann. I will be seeking her for all my next chapters in real estate ventures. She made the process enjoyable. -Dustin
