Passionate about real estate and design, Kristine helps clients achieve their goals in the dynamic San Francisco real estate market. Early in her career, she led creative marketing efforts for clients including Yahoo, Wells Fargo and then District Attorney Kamala Harris. Relying on a keen understanding of the industry and negotiating savvy, Kristine partners with her clients to identify and acquire property as an investment and a home.

Kristine comes from a San Francisco real estate family with a long history investing in the city’s vibrant housing market. She has personally purchased, remodeled, and profitably sold numerous homes and understands first hand the remodeling and construction challenges in a highly competitive market.

Kristine is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and volunteers her time at Convent and Stuart Hall Elementary.  She is a member of the San Francisco Association of Realtors (SFAR) and California Association of Realtors (CAR).

We were first-time homebuyers who knew nothing about the process until we met Kris. We met other agents, but two things made Kris stand out. First, she was genuine and a true advocate for what we wanted -- while others were trying to further their agendas like used cars salesmen or made us feel dumb when we asked beginner's questions, Kris wanted what we wanted (often telling us a house was overpriced) and always made us feel comfortable with the foreign process of home buying. Second, she goes above and beyond -- even now after we've closed, she has continued to push for resolution of outstanding issues with the sellers, and continues to advise us on remodeling and other home issues. Thanks to Kris's instinct, while others were overlooking it, we were able to get the house we love for UNDER listing price in the heart of SF! More generally, she is the perfect agent for a young couple or family getting their first home -- with her own experiencing raising kids and renovating houses in the bay area. She has our highest recommendation!

Although I was using a brokerage company to show, screen and rent our family home in the Inner Richmond, we weren't getting any qualified applications. Kristine was able to find a local family of four and after meeting with them we really matched up. I would recommend Kristine for your real estate needs especially for finding quality tenants for your property.
