"Kristin Johnston is someone I would call the consummate real estate professional. She answered every question I had to the best of her ability, and answered questions about the process that truthfully was outside the scope of duties. Kristin took the concerns of our family as a whole into consideration when helping us determine exactly the right fit for our family, but was astute enough to concern herself with the individual concerns of each family member. Kristin helped us truly understand the information we had on comparable properties in our area, help provide us with information on inspectors when asked, and never allowed us to feel “in the dark” in terms of communication. In fact, I don’t believe that there was ever a time that we would attempt to contact Kristin that we were not communicated with within an hour. That kind of responsiveness is almost unheard of. Kristin was so detailed oriented that she was able to provide us with guidance, “post” closing and helped us to truly feel comfortable in our new home. I highly recommend her for any real estate venture, as an active agent that will represent her client, to the best of her ability. Kristin helps to reinforce the idea that there is professionalism and heart in a market that has been bad mouthed in the last twenty years. Kristin, I publicly thank you once again!"
"Kris was fabulous!!! Her enthusiasm, efficiency, eagerness and excellent ability to relate just made selling my home effortless on my part. Since I was soon to be married and enjoying the prospects of the home we had found, I understood that it was necessary to sell mine. However, it still tugged at my heart. Kris understood this and made every aspect very personal and reassuring. She had everything in order for the people that looked at my home, packets of information for them to take AND she had it sold in four days!!!! My fiancee and I had found a home we loved prior to meeting Kris, but she was also kind enough to search for and take us to see some properties just so we would have real peace of mind about the purchase we were pretty sure of. As a bonus, we have kept a friendship over the year since I sold my home. Thank you Kris!"
Naomi and Dan Prusinski
"Thank you for all of your hard work and efficiency. You were very thorough in helping us and taking care of our needs. You made our home search seem painless and stress-free. I hope that we can work together in the future. Thanks again!"
"Now that the closing is over, I want to thank you for all your hard work selling my parents house. Dad seemed pleased by the outcome when I talked to him yesterday. From the time of our meeting in April and throughout the listing period when you had dealings with almost everyone in the family (and some not in the family), you really impressed me with the energy you put into the task and your positive outlook. Thanks again!"
"After my first interview with Kristin, I thought she might be the person to handle the sale of my home. I was right!"
"Kristin, thank you so much for all your help in selling our house. We had a lot of faith in you and we were right! You are a very hard worker and the best! Thanks again!"
"My husband and I were looking for our first home. We had an idea of what we were looking for, but had little idea of what to do next. I called my friends that had recently purchased houses, and asked who they used and if they liked them. The response was the same. "No", they did not like their realtor. So, I started by calling three realtors, and only Kris seemed not only willing, but very helpful. That alone meant a lot to us. We set up a meeting with her and were immediately impressed with her. When we went on viewings with Kris, she informed us of potential problem areas that we did not know to look for. Kris was always available for last minute showings. That is how we found our house. We called Kris with a house that we wanted to see, and she got us in ASAP. The house was only on the market for one day. Kris helped us draw up the offer (she helped us decide how much to offer) on the back of her car! The house had an offer already coming in. Kris kept us informed of the seller's decision to counter-offer and explained exactly what it meant. She came into the office on her day off, to aide us in the signing of the counter offer. When she called on Father's Day, to tell us that we were accepted, I could not have thanked her enough. She helped us through the rest of the process: explaining what earnest money was, and how the rest of the process will go. She came to our closing, and patiently waited to answer questions. She also bought us our first housewarming gift. My husband and I could not have been happier with Kris. She took time for us on her weekends, holidays, and days off. She informed us of her vacation time, days in advance. Her warm, welcoming, and cheerful personality made us feel comfortable throughout the process. We will definitely be using Kris as our realtor for our next home and for selling our current home when the time comes. We feel that we were very fortunate to have such an awesome realtor. I would have no problem recommending Kris to my family and friends. She helped us so much. Thanks Kris!"
"Kris was very knowledgeable in her field, showed a personal interest in my needs, and keep me informed throughout the whole transaction. She listened carefully, was prompt on all showing appointments and was always very professional. Kris's quality of service exceeded my expectations!"
"As we looked for a real estate agent to help us find and purchase our second home, my wife and I had a better idea of what we wanted in an agent than we'd had the first time through the process. We knew we wanted a person who would listen to us and take our needs and desires into consideration as we searched the market. We knew we wanted someone accessible, attentive, and trustworthy. And perhaps even most of all, we knew we wanted someone we just "clicked with" as a person. Luckily for us, we found Kris. She was everything we had hoped and expected an agent would be, and she helped make our search as stress-free as I imagine buying a home could ever be. With such a big decision facing us, it was wonderful knowing we had someone we could trust on our side, and in the end, we couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Kris. Without her, I'm not sure we'd now be living in our dream home."
"I have been impressed with Kristin's Real Estate marketing and knowledge of the Real Estate market in the Waukesha County area for years. You must check out her blogs about Waukesha County to see what I mean. I highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a home in her area to contact her."
"Thank you for all that you have done. We are finally in our new home. Micah is finding more and more projects to do. We have really enjoyed working with you. Micah wants to have you over in a few months to see all the improvements he has done to the house. Thank you for always getting information to us promptly, and working with us to make our dream come true."
"We recently contracted with Kris Johnston to list and sell our Aunt's home. Kris was professional, warm, caring, and friendly. I felt like we were dealing with a personal friend. Kris suggested ways in which we could make my Aunt's home more marketable and recommended individuals who could help us in these areas of improvement. Her recommendation for an asking price seemed quite reasonable and apparently it was a good price. Kris received an offer and we accepted an offer just $900 under the listing price, which was obtained at the first open house. Our Aunt's house was on the market, with an accepted offer and closing in a time span of just over one month. I truly feel that the enthusiasm Kris demonstrates in selling and marketing her listings must be apparent in every listing she has. I would recommend her services to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home. She is very good at what she does. I am personally very grateful for her attention and expertise."
"We had been contemplating a move from our home for a couple of years, but were not ready to sell until just this past summer. Throughout that time, Kris stayed in contact with us and always demonstrated courteousness, sensitivity, and a professionalism that is rarely found today. Kris acted swiftly when we felt ready to put our home on the market. Within days we were having regular showings, almost on a daily basis, and our house SOLD in just two months! All the while, Kris kept in communication with us, as well as the other parties involved. She never missed a beat, and always was friendly and organized. We will never forget the helpful and amazing service we had with Kris Johnston. THANKS KRIS!!!"
"Kris is absolutely the best Buyers’ Agent anyone could have. As many changes as we asked her to make to our search criterion, and all of the places we couldn't decide on, she didn't blink an eye to help us. She was always on top of the game (so to speak) and took very good care of our interests. She has an excellent professional demeanor and a wonderful personality. We have already recommended her to all of our friends and family. We want them to experience what a top notch real estate professional is all about. Someone who looks out for your best interest, and not her own. Kris will also have a special place in our hearts and has already become like family to us. We truly respect her. In the future, if we ever need any other housing needs, we would use her again!"
"Kristin was completely attentive to our needs! She gave us great insight into what to look for in a house, in terms of potential issues with homes, resale tips, etc. She was also a great partner from the first home she showed us, until 20 houses later, when we chose a house, and signed the papers! We would definitely recommend her!"
"Kristin is the ultimate Realtor driven by a passion for client service and the details surrounding every transaction. Her marketing skills are outstanding along with her use of technology. I would send my relocations clients any day. Kristin + RE/MAX = SOLD!"
"It has been a pleasure working with you. I would DEFINITELY recommend you to anyone! You have been very prompt in communicating with me, you go out of your way to get answers for me, and have helped me to feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. And on top of that, you are very professional and personable!"
"Kristin Johnston is prompt, knowledgeable, thorough, and good natured. She responded patiently to all of my questions and concerns. She even came to my new home shortly before I moved in and spent time helping me visualize where to place all of my furnishings. Also, with her expert assistance, my house sold in only one day! I would highly recommend her to others."
"Kris, thank you so much for all of the time and energy you put into this long journey with us! You are so professional, yet personal, and we have appreciated your attitude, patience, and expertise through this process. We have had such a positive experience with you. Thank you for everything! We will be recommending you to our friends that are considering buying!"
"Kristin is a hard working Realtor who takes a personal approach. She treats her clients like family and is there from start to finish and well beyond. Working with Kristin has always been a pleasure and I look forward to seeing her and being a part of her clients transactions."
"Kris was the perfect choice for helping my husband and I buy our first house. She took the time to explain every detail of the process and answered every question we had. She was very thorough and knowledgeable and she worked very hard to get us what we wanted. Sometimes she would email us at 10 at night or 6 in the morning, showing her dedication to her clients. We trusted her completely and would recommend her to anybody looking to buy a home, especially first time buyers."
Steve and Solfrid Fountain
"Dear Kris, We love our new place! It is really beautiful, all we are waiting for now is the replacement window and the area rugs. We feel so at home already! We want to thank you for all your help in the process of buying our condo. When we were in the process of selling our home, we appreciated you keeping in touch and the steady information on available places; it gave us a good idea of what was on the market those days. After the sale of our home, you were so generous with your time in showing us various properties and came with a wealth of information on each one. Whenever we e-mailed you a question, we could count on a quick and complete reply every time. We just want you to know that your in-depth knowledge of real estate, your willingness to go the extra mile and your pleasant and up-beat attitude were very much appreciated and we would recommend you to any one in need of a first class Realtor. Thank you so much for the Home Depot gift card and we admire your involvement with the HAWS program. We wish you God's grace and blessings, always."
"Kristin was excellent to work with. She did everything to sell our home in a very difficult market. She was always honest with us and quick to respond with any feedback or to answer any questions we had. We will definitely work with Kris in the future. Thanks for all you did!!!!"
"Dear Kris, How can we thank you for making our home-buying experience SO incredibly wonderful? You were professional, yet totally keeping us at ease. You were all over the details, yet so laid back. Thank you for your full and immediate attention to every one of our inquiries and needs. You are excellent at what you do! We also want to thank you for the Home Depot Gift Card and the donation made in our names to the animal shelter. How thoughtful!! We are loving our new home, yard, and neighborhood and think of you quite often. Thank you for making this memory such a pleasant one for us! Very warm regards!"
"Thank God for Kristin Johnston! Another job well done. She has listed and sold properties for family and friends, and we just closed on another! She is professional, driven, and will work tirelessly for you, but at the same time she is friendly, and personable. We have become good friends in the course of business. Whatever your looking for in a Realtor, you'll find it in Kristin. Truly a pro !!!"
"I have worked on numerous transactions with Kristin and every time Kristin has exceeded my expectations. She makes the process of purchasing a home seem simple. I have experienced nothing but top notch service from her. Kristin goes above and beyond when dealing with negotiations between buyers and sellers which is just another reason I love referring families to her."
"We were referred to Kris Johnston by our home stager, Laura Baker, of Ready,Set...Sell! Home Staging and Redesign. It was imperative that the Realtor we chose was well versed in the complicated short sale process we were about to undergo. Kris was knowledgeable, confident and assertive. With her guidance, our home sold in just over 4 months on the market at the full appraisal price, which was 16 thousand dollars more than the starting price quoted to us by another short sale realtor. Kris was extremely attentive and thorough as we both navigated the banking system and dealt with the many unexpected difficulties associated with short sales. Her support was vital as our patience was tested. Not once did we feel alone in this process as Kris responded to our questions and concerns quickly and accurately as well as defending our interest through consistent and effective communication with our bank. We would recommend Kris Johnston to any individual for any type of real estate activity as we are sure she has the interest of her client as the highest priority."
"As a Real Estate professional in the Greater Milwaukee Area, I have worked with many other industry professionals over the years. I have had the privilege of working with Kristin on several transactions. She is very detailed orientated, professional, and very knowledgeable in her industry. I certainly hope to continue doing business with Kristin in the future, and I would not hesitate to recommend her with extreme confidence to anyone looking for assistance in the real estate market."
"Hi Kristin, Thanks for your help in purchasing my condominium. I appreciate your quick responses to all my questions and concerns. My son is very happy. It has been a pleasure."
"We HIGHLY recommend Kristin Johnston for your Realtor. We first noticed her online for her charitable contributions from her profits, and realized that she was more than just another realtor out for the money. She was in it for the client. After our first contact and letting her know our needs, she immediately got back to us and that never changed. She was always prompt with answers, and very helpful (as we were first time buyers). She helped us get our offer accepted within 24 hours, and made sure to keep in contact the whole 24 hours, not just when we offered. We had an awful experience with a Realtor before her, and we wouldn't want anyone to feel left out of what can be a life changing decision. At no point with Kristin did we feel left out. Please consider her for your next big decision as it will be the right one."
"Kristin was a pleasure to work with. With her high energy, she sought out many prospective properties early in our search. As first time home buyers, her knowledge in real estate was a comfort; knowing that she was advocating for us. She was quick to respond to emails, so we never felt like we were left hanging. I would definitely recommend her. Mark and Kathy"
"Kristin has built her business on a foundation of excellence. Kristin has continually operated with integrity, while maintaining great communication with all parties involved in the transaction. The commitment to her clients needs has been made evident by her borrowers raving reviews. I will continue to refer my friends, family, and clients to Kristin Johnston!"
"Once Jess and I knew we were going the route of purchasing a home, Kristin was the only option we even considered. Kristin has worked with various friends and family and they have always had very positive results, our experience was no different. Once we got in contact with Kristin, listings came quickly, viewings shortly after that and once we decided to put an offer in, Kristin was extremely responsive to all parties which helped the buying process go much more quickly and smoothly than I think it would have with anyone else. I can easily say, beyond any doubt, that Kristin is the best person I have worked with in any professional setting. She has a personal touch, is extremely responsive and clearly cares about her clients wants and needs. In the future, we will recommend all family and friends to Kristin and the next time we need to do anything real estate related, she'll be the first, and only, person we contact."
"As a first-time homebuyer, I had an excellent experience with Kristin as my realtor. From the first time I emailed her with my interest in a property all the way up until the keys to my dream condo were in my hand, Kristin had excellent communication and helped me the entire way. Not only did she have outstanding communication with me, she also stayed in contact with the seller’s realtor as well as my lender. Kristin went above and beyond any and every expectation I envisioned when I purchased my first home. Kristin kept me well-informed and was always on top of different properties that I wanted to view. Kristin is truly passionate for her buyers, very personable, all while carrying a professional demeanor and not being pushy."
"We've worked with Kris on multiple homes now and she helped us find just the right fit both times. She works very hard and is always prompt to follow-up. It's great to know we have someone in our corner and someone we can get a hold of day and night and on the weekends!"

"I didn't know where to begin to look for a realtor who I could trust with the task of handling my short sale. I happened upon Kristin's website and I thought she looked honest and friendly. It also helped that she was an animal lover, like me. I definitely made the right choice in putting my trust in Kris. She constantly communicated with the mortgage company and me and made the process as smooth and painless for me as she could. I really appreciate all that she did."
"My husband and I wanted a Buyer's Agent to look out for us, instead of having both the listing agent and showing agent working for the seller. Kristin fulfills that role, but she can also list your home for sale. Kristin has a very friendly personality, rolls with the punches, works hard to find you your new home, and ensures the deal goes smoothly through to completion."
"As first time home buyers my husband and I really didn't know much about the home buying process. Sure we had watched many TV shows about first time home buyers, but let me tell you...there is so much more to it! We were referred to Kristin Johnston from Carrie Williams at Providence Home Lending as we did not have a realtor in mind. Kristin was great to work with right off the bat. She had the ability to make all of those over our head, daunting details, easy to understand. Kristin made it simple. We told her what we wanted and she sent us listings to view. We'd tell her what we wanted to see and she handled contacting the seller and scheduling showings from there.
Our home search was quite short and sweet as we fell in love with the second house we saw, but before that we changed our preferences and criteria a few times. Never once did we feel like a bother as Kristin was completely flexible in accommodating our changes and focus right away. With today's many technological channels of communication readily available to many of us, Kristin utilizes all of them in the most effective way to communicate with you. If there was a question that popped into my head, I could send her an email or text and receive a response in almost record setting time. At one point our email chain became so long my phone had a hard time loading them...that's how good she is! My husband and I would highly recommend Kristin to anyone looking for a home, whether a first time buyer or veteran of the home buying process! The home buying process can be overwhelming in many ways, but Kristin has a way of making it effortless. Thank you Kristin for helping us find our perfect first home, you were incredibly great to work with."
"Kristin helped me to find a home! She always made herself available and answered any questions or concerns promptly. She was very knowledgeable about the homes she showed me and the process to purchase a home. I know she worked hard into the evening and on weekends to get me the answers I needed or any pertinent information. She was kind and courteous to all people involved. She's a great communicator. I would recommend Kris to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"Kristin Johnston was excellent and professional. She was of critical help in handling a very difficult sale. Thank you, and good luck to you too."
"Kristin is great! Very knowledgeable on the market. Patient (requested tons of home showings) provided expert advice when it came to making an offer to purchase. Responded to our emails and phone calls promptly and professionally. I have used Kristin for 3 home purchases and have recommended her to everyone wanting buy or sell a home."
“I worked with Kris to purchase my first home, a condo in Pewaukee, and also our second home—a single family house in Richfield. If I could think of one word to describe Kris, it would be personal. BUT that would be too simple—she is so much more than that! She is patient, dedicated, professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, responsive and truly passionate for her profession. If Justin or I had a question on a listing or wanted to see something as soon as it hit the market so we wouldn’t miss out, Kris responded immediately via email/text/call and was on top of reaching out to the seller to get our questions answered or set up a showing. We were never left sitting and waiting—if anything, we the buyers were the hold up! Kris was honest about the listings that she showed us, and would never push us to put in an offer if she knew it wasn’t exactly what we were looking for. We ended up getting a very good deal on the house that we purchased in Richfield, and Kris was 110% dedicated to getting us the price that the house was worth throughout all the back and forth communications with the seller. As much as I love my home, I can’t wait to work with her again, but for now I will just recommend her to anyone who wants a realtor who actually cares about making the American dream come true of home ownership!”
"Kris is the consummate professional and extremely responsive. I've worked with Kris several times and she has always come through for me. I highly recommend Kris!"
"Kristin had been recommended to me as the whole selling/purchasing of a home was very new to me. I had so many questions, anxieties, and outright fears. I am so glad that I chose Kristin to work with. It was hard for me to leave the home I had grown up in and move on; however, Kristin held my hand through everything, and I do mean everything. She let me get my emotions out to her, she let me ask her a million questions, and she let me go through everything I was going through while always being right there by my side. One of the things I love about working with anyone, especially when I do not have a lot of experience in a certain area, is when they come through and show me their competence, their professionalism, and their knowledge. Kristin did all of this and more. She literally had answers for almost all my questions within minutes of me asking them. If she did not know the answer, she found out the answer as quickly as possible, never longer than a few hours. She is extremely knowledgeable in what she does. Kristin allowed me to contact her at almost any time of the day and there were some days that were very emotional for me and I felt like I was calling/emailing a friend; she was that caring and compassionate. Should the time come when I need the services of a realtor in the future, I know that I have found the one I will always come back to. I feel like I have not only made a business contact but a friend. My mother and I thank you Kristin for all you did for us!"
"Kris has a great attitude and has a very pleasant voice and personality."
"We recently purchased our first home with Kris, who was referred to us through a realtor in the Chicago area. Kris was very knowledgeable about the marketplace and always willing to work around our schedules working late nights to show us properties as we both work full time during the day. Kris always greeted us with a smile and was most professional while still being friendly and amiable during the entire house buying process. She was very quick to get the paperwork completed and follow-up with the other realtors to ensure we were never at a disadvantage. We will definitely be referring Kris to anyone we know who may be in the market to buy or sell a home. We will be listing our home with Kris when the time comes."
"Myself and my family have used Kristin several times, and she has been nothing less than the BEST! Sold my home in three days for asking price. Found my new home very fast. Sold my dad's four family in one day for asking price. Sold my dad's home after his passing for more than market value. Sold my nieces home in three weeks after another agent couldn't in three months. Found my sister in-law's dream house for her."
"Kristin Johnston is perhaps the hardest working, most knowledgeable and friendliest realtor my husband and I have ever worked with (and we have moved across states eight times in our marriage). She will not rest until she finds you the perfect home for your needs. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Such dedication and professionalism is to be admired. Bottom line -- she gets the job done."
"Kristin is an experienced, personable real estate professional. We provide the title and closing services where accurate, timely information is important. Kristin pays the necessary attention to detail for transactions to successfully close and does so with a smile."
"Kris, Thanks for the Home Depot Gift Card. Much appreciated, and of course, and it will come in handy. Also, thanks for your donation in my name to the Golden Retriever Rescue of WI as part of your GIVE BACK PROGRAM. And, thanks for all the work you did for Rachel and me. I know it wasn't quarter-million dollar homes we were looking at, but you'd never know that from the service we got from you. You are a class act and a true professional. Best of luck to you."
"I have known and worked with Kristin for quite some time now. She is very knowledgeable and personable and fun to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. I wish there were more people like her in this world.”
"Kristin is the most AMAZING realtor ever! She was very compassionate and caring as well as professional and fast! My expectations were surpassed with Kristin. I love Kristin, she is the best at what she does! Better than other local realtors that I know. With Kristin, we were able to find, and purchase our dream house. Thank you Kristin!"
"Kristin was a referral to my husband and I from my brother and we could not be more pleased with her work and commitment to helping us find and purchase our first home! Her response time was fast and kind and she never made us feel like we asked silly questions no matter how many questions we asked. Going through the homes was fun and it felt like walking through the process with a friend. Any home buyers would be lucky to have Kris on their side."
"My daughter and I were looking to purchase a condo for her, and it certainly wasn’t a high-end condo at that. But, you would never know that we weren’t looking for million-dollar homes when it came to the effort and professionalism we received from Kris in finding a condo. She stayed in contact, alerting us to possible properties and helped us through the offer process. While our financing was never in doubt, it wasn’t quite normal and Kris made sure the sellers were aware of that. Kris always returned phone calls and texts promptly. We couldn’t have asked for more from an agent."
"Kristin Johnston was excellent---She worked hard for us until we found the house we wanted."
We can’t thank you enough for everything over the past year. You worked so hard to sell our house and even harder to find us a house we loved. Also, for having so much patience with us. You were right that we would love the second house more than the first. Take the time to relax and slow down a bit. Hope you enjoy your gift. Thank you for guiding us and being with us every step of the way! Thanks again and you are wonderful at what you do!
