Kristin's Testimonials

Kristin is hands down the BEST realtor we could’ve gotten our hands on!. She was so knowledgeable, patient, kind, and of course a hoot and a half to have around. Kristin helped us find THE perfect first home. She took amazing care of us throughout the whole process. She was always available for the 900 questions we had and made what could've possibly been a really stressful process fun and enjoyable! One year later we got relocated and she helped us sell that same very perfect first home. She worked with a complicated relocation process and handled the entire process with eagerness, listed our house in a short time frame and brought us multiple offers within the first weekend on market. She handled the close of the property after we had already moved out of town, eased our stress, and handled every aspect of both buying and selling with the upmost integrity and professionalism. Kristin is a fantastic Realtor but an even better human. We have made a lifelong friend in Kristin through this process and would recommend her 10 times over to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Buyers/Sellers 2019

My agent for LIFE!. Kristin was amazing to work with and far exceeded our expectations of an agent. She made our buying and selling experience very easy and comfortable. She was extremely patient in our buying process, ensuring we didn't settle for less in the competitive Portland market. Once we purchased the new home, Kristin helped to line up contractors so we could hit our target move date. Then the task became selling our old property. Kristin once again went above and beyond! She took care of scheduling contractors and getting estimates. She went by the property regularly to ensure the work was done right and on time. She took care of all staging and ultimately negotiating the deal that met all of our needs. Throughout both the selling and buying process Kristin kept us informed with daily connections and reassurance that helped reduce any stress. My agent for LIFE! Buyer/Seller Nov 2020

I recently purchased an investment condominium with the help of Kristin Del Balzo. Kristin's combination of a high level of professional skill and a very personal approach to her clients made the process easy and enjoyable. We worked together over a six month period to find the right property and negotiate a price and escrow that was positive for both seller and buyer. Kristin was a great facilitator every step of the way. She continues to check in and offer referrals and support. I've worked with many real estate professionals over the years and can recommend Kristin's services most highly.
