"Buying your first house is terrifying. Yes, it is a huge step, and the amount of jargon and paperwork is sometimes seemingly insurmountable. So when we started looking for our first home we were incredibly excited, but also ridiculously scared to say the least. That is, until we met Kristen Meyer. Kristen made the entire process of searching for a first home absolutely, totally, and completely fun. You heard us right, we had FUN! Her knowledge of the market is absolutely staggering, but it's her enthusiasm and her thorough explanations of things that made our experience exciting, adventurous and yeah, FUN! It's great to speak to people now after we have bought our first house and have them say "oh goodness, what a stressful, crazy experience that must have been for you!" and for us to reply "you obviously haven't met Kristen, have you."

"Kristen Meyer is absolutely the best agent in Seattle. She is all the good things you need in a real estate agent: extremely intelligent, quick, responsive and (kindly) aggressive. She also has the best qualities in a person: warm, kind, generous, fun. Kristen anticipated our every need. She is extremely well-versed in real estate and impressed me with her deep knowledge of the field.
When we finally found our dream condo (in Queen Anne), we could ask a question or even just wonder something out loud and a minute later we would have an answer ! She is superquick with the smartphone email, text and phone call. She has every contact at her fingertips and always knew where to find information. She is well-connected in Seattle and has many resources at the ready. Plus, she is just so sweet- a pleasure to be around, which is important when you have to work with someone on such an intense level.
We just can't recommend her enough!"

"I have had the pleasure of working with Kristen and Rosemary for over five years now. The consistently high level of communication, knowledge, professionalism and customer service that these two provide to their clients is uncompromising. My clients have been very pleased with the services Rosemary and Kristen deliver. This dynamic duo has added tremendous value to our Bank by helping us move bank-owned inventory in a tough market."
David Raney, Sound Community Bank
"'Working with Kristen and Rosemary was a real treat. As a first-time home buyer, the whole process seemed huge and somewhat terrifying. Kristen and Rosemary made it fun. Their patient, down-to-earth approach helped me make heads or tails of things, and they really took the time to get to know me and factor my interests and priorities into our search. When I got closer to making a decision, they gave me frank and constructive feedback that helped me figure out what was best for me. On top of all that, they both have a great sense of humor and know how to make a good time out of driving around looking at houses. Anytime anyone I know expresses even the slightest interest in looking at real estate I instantly recommend Kristen and Rosemary."
"I highly recommend Kristen and Rosemary to anyone looking to purchase a home. I was a first time homebuyer and had a fabulous experience. Kristen and Rosemary worked together to make sure I was comfortable with everything that goes into making a purchase and were patient in walking me step by step through the process - especially because I had never done it before. There was never any pressure and they genuinely wanted to find me a place that I would be happy to call home. One thing I especially appreciated was their honesty. If we went to a place and they saw something that I never would have noticed, they made sure to point this out to me even though it may have been a deal breaker. They also thoroughly investigated any questions I had about a place so I could make informed decisions. It was this trust that made me want to work with them. Plus...they are fun! I couldn't be happier about my purchase and they have kept in contact to make sure that is the case. I would definitely work with them again!"
"After receiving my fifth reference to Kristen and Rosemary, I finally decided to see what all the fuss was about. It was quite honestly one of the best decisions we made relating to the sale of our house. Let's face it, selling a home is supremely stressful. Both of these ladies have a gift for educating you and also for bringing you back down from the inevitable 'market reality' freak out. They worked tirelessly to get the place sold, and were honest with us from start to finish. We consider them part of the family and will definitely ask them to help us find a new home when the time is right."
"I've been in w/Kristen buying two houses in the past 5 years, with Kristen and Rosemary in selling a rental off in December, have dragged them all over the county looking at properties, and had them jump hoops for a house they told me not to buy but that my stubbornness wouldn't let me pass up until an inspection that essentially made the place a tear down. I recommend them highly. I have used Kristen as a soundboard since she became an agent as she is as well informed as anyone I have known in real estate. To have the two of them as a team is awesome. They sold a house for me in a terrible economy in 3 months, whereas I have watched many of my friends and neighbors houses languish on the market for more than a year. I trust both implicitly and refer all of my friends to them."
"Our initial hookup with Kristen and Rosemary came via a referral from a co-worker who had just purchased his first home with the two ladies. After our very first handshake with K&A, we knew. They were our soulmates...They were realistic about what our budget could afford us, but never burst our fresh-faced first-time homebuyer bubble. They listened intently to our needs and wants (over lunch at a local haunt in our desired neighborhood) and catered specifically to our situation. We always felt supported, confident, and excited with Kristen and Rosemary leading the way. It's a tough market out there, but Kristen and Rosemary never let us get frustrated or caught up in the little particulars. They made our experience fun, which is something we never thought homebuying could be. We want to scream their names from the rooftops, and believe anybody thinking about buying a home should meet these two awesome, smart, witty, and personable women."
Erika and Jackson
"I had expected that whoever we chose as agents would satisfactorily complete what the job required, but Kristen and Rosemary went beyond the job description and became coach and counselor, too. It never felt like a raw business transaction, but a journey we were on together, with them guiding the way. Anyone who sees you through tough times with grace and humor is going to earn your respect and trust, and Kristen and Rosemary have ours. If you are looking for a real estate agent in Seattle, they come with our unqualified and enthusiastic support. "

"As first-time homebuyers, my wife and I knew nothing about real estate -- and, as a result, were leery about getting pushed into buying something we didn't want. But not only did Kristen and Rosemary genuinely take the time to listen to what WE wanted, they discouraged us from pursuing homes that they knew wouldn't have been a good fit. Thanks to their tireless research -- and a knack for simplifying the purchasing process -- they were indisposable in the search for our home. They were confidantes, counselors, and ultimately, our friends."

"When we set out to sell our house and find a new home all before the birth of our new arrival I really didn't think it would be possible. I had even gone through our current home and figured out how we could move things around if we had to stay because I was so sure we wouldn't be able to sell for what we needed in this market. During one of my first conversations with Kristen I told her this. Her response: "We are going to find you your dream home and have you moved in with plenty of time to nest." She was right! We couldn't be happier and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kristen and Rosemary to anyone looking to buy or sell. They are professional, creative, positive and fun! They are looking out for their client's best interest and are truly experts at what they do. Kristen and Rosemary helped us sell our home in a very challenging market. Their professionalism and creativity got us into our dream home when we didn't think it was possible."
Beth and Ken
"Rosemary and Kristen were so great to work with! We felt like we could actually trust them to be completely honest with us, they were always available whenever we needed something, and they were lots of fun! They are both so knowledgeable, easy-going and professional; selling our condo ended up being a fast and simple process. Highly recommended realtors!!"
"We were blown away by the service and commitment Kristen showed us throughout the entire process of selling out home. She made one of the most stressful times in our lives feel fun and we always felt like we could trust her. We don't know what we would have done without her."
Steve and Kerry
"Kristen & Rosemary were simply great to work with. Their expertise, opinions and advice were invaluable when it finally came time to put an offer in on a house and it helped us to know we were making the right decision. We have and will recommend them to anyone looking for an agent!"
