" Our home buying experience with Kristine was quite exceptional. We needed to find a new home due to a job change that required relocating from Ohio to Michigan. Ordinarily, this would have been rather overwhelming in just about every way as we had never before relocated.
However, Kristine was a constant, calming guide throughout the entire home search and purchase process. She assessed what we wanted and prepared in advance for our trip to Grand Rapids. Upon arriving, she met us for breakfast and said she committed her entire day to us. She showed us homes in a variety of communities around Grand Rapids and paid close attention to our response to each house and neighborhood.
During our lunch break, she shared with us that she had a property in mind that was about to be listed and thought it might be a good match. She made arrangements for us to view the property that very afternoon. By late afternoon, we were taking steps to purchase the property. We had found our new home! It was like a dream.
Kristine continued to guide us throughout the entire real estate purchase process. It was mercifully swift and smooth which came as a great relief to us since there were many other matters that needed our attention during the relocation process. We benefited from Kristine’s strong background in the home construction industry coupled with her exceptional knowledge of the local real estate market.
Kristine is a good listener and communicator. She is attentive to the smallest of details and is quick to offer assistance above and beyond the ordinary. We are so grateful for the experience we have had with her. It gave us a great start to our new life in Grand Rapids. " Tom and Tammy Smanik
" Kristine has gained our trust based on her wealth of knowledge and experience in all elements of the home selling/buying process. She understands construction, design, marketing and all the individual steps needed to execute one of the largest transactions a family may experience. Above and beyond managing the real estate fundamentals, Kristine has the ability to earnestly listen, creatively anticipate and bring workable solutions to the heart and soul of what is most important throughout the journey. Kristine’s service brought peace, assurance and, most of all, results. " Sam and Trish Woolpert
" Kristine Dozeman was our trusted partner in selling our home. First, she took all the time necessary to weigh in on the improvements to make before listing including all the contractor, painter, etc. coordination. Then, the time in obtaining the best pictures and information for the listing. All this led to our house selling in one day at top price. Kristine is wonderful to work with during the process and is very successful in completing the sale. " Jay and Amy Dunwell
'' Our experience working with Kristine on the sale of our existing home, and the purchase of our new home, was exemplary. From start to finish, Kristine was attentive, professional and patient. Her knowledge of the market, valuations, and the West Michigan Region was comprehensive. We are most grateful for her patience of the few years we worked together . . . she never rushed us and always remained supportive and attentive. She is the utmost professional and delightful lady! We have already referred her and would work with her again in a heart beat! '' Jim and Martha Slubowski, Cascade
" We contacted Kristine after having listed with another broker, during which time we had little communication, few showings and no offers on our home. We were quite discouraged until Kristine gave us a thorough analysis of the market for homes similar to ours, helped us arrive at a price, and offered easy changes to add to our home's appeal. Within two weeks we had numerous showings and multiple offers! During the entire process Kristine kept us well informed in a direct and forthright manner, and handled every detail from the purchase offer to the closing with professionalism, grace and finesse. We were extremely pleased with the entire process! " Sue Conway, Rockford
" Kristine kept all parties current and updated throughout the entire process. She remained focused on our final goal and did not become distracted by difficult personalities or complex situations. Kristine is a unique combination -- warm and friendly, yet calm, firm and steadfast during negotiations. " Melinda Breslin, Cascade
" At first, it was Kristine's attention to detail that sold me. Then, it was her caring and personal approach. Lastly, it was her obvious expertise in all matters having to do with the sale and purchase of our homes. While Kristine expertly guided us through the process, I felt like all her efforts were focused on our behalf. She is the only realtor my wife and I will ever use. " K. George, Forest Hills
" Kristine and I have worked together several times in the last few years. She has a good eye for design and excellent follow-through to get things done. She is a woman of integrity and does what she says she will do, which is so important in today's business world. " Kathy Barry, Interior Designer
" My father and I had the pleasure to have Kristine Dozeman assist us in purchasing a house in the Grand Rapids area. The house we selected turned out to have a difficult financial and legal attachment, and Kristine was incredibly tenacious and consummately professional at every step. Not only did the closing take place at the last possible moment, but Kristine personally facilitated the document transfer from lending institution to title company. She also suggested a remote closing, saving my father several hundred dollars in travel fees from out of state and no small amount of inconvenience. As the closing date changed multiple times, this was not an insignificant detail. The peace of mind that my father and I felt as a result of Kristine's capable and confident management made a difficult situation much more tolerable. She truly went above and beyond the expectation of a buyer's realtor and certainly had my 86 year-old father's best interests at heart. I would recommend her services without reservation. " Linda Langholz, Forest Hills
" Kristine is a TERRIFIC realtor, careful and responsive to our needs. She was considerate in helping us to prepare our home and in locating a new home. She knows the market well, helpful in locating a lender and in assuring our buyer was qualified. She is supportive without being demanding, a wonderful stager and willing to invest her own money to help the sale of our home be successful. She became a friend, not just an agent. "
Bob and Marcia Fortner, Ada
" We met Kristine while viewing an Open House that she was listing. While that house did not work for us, we mentioned to her that we were interested in a Short Sale going into Foreclosure. Her response was simple...
' What's stopping you? ' As soon as we heard that, we were SOLD on Kristine! While the process was lengthy and complex, Kristine diligently communicated with everyone and kept the ball rolling. We are very grateful to have met Kristine and to have had her as our agent to handle the purchase of our home which we love! "
David & Angelica Todd, Forest Hills
" She has a long list of qualified buyers ~ Kristine had a buyer for my condo the first day, sold THEIR home in one day... helped all parties sort out closing dates that worked for everyone, kept open communication between all parties to ensure that all three closings stayed on track and closed like clockwork!
