“I would highly recommend Kristy. I have in the past recommended her to friends who were looking to buy, and sell a house. As a home inspector, I enjoy working with her because she takes what I say seriously, and we have good communication. Some people in real-estate think this is a numbers business, but to Kristy it has always been a people business.” – Josh (Owner, Precision Inspections)
“Kristy has taken the Wabash Valley Trust’s restored homes marketing program to the next level. Our board has been using federal HOME funds to restore historic homes for low/moderate income families for the past decade. However, as a board of busy working professionals and a small office staff, we tend to fall short in our marketing efforts once the homes are on the market. Kristy has used her networks to professionally market our labors of love and sell them quickly. This improved turnaround increases our organization’s credibility and makes us eligible for additional grants. Kristy’s savvy real estate marketing skills have taken a huge project off of our executive director’s plate and allowed us to spend more time on procuring the next house sooner. I value her energy and dedication and have engaged her as my own realtor since I enjoy working with her so much professionally.” – Eileen
“Kristy was an absolute delight to work with when she represented my wife and I during the sale of our previous home. She is both professional and down-to-earth, and walked us through every step in the process with unparalleled knowledge in realty and absolute patience with us as we learned ‘the ropes.’ I’d choose Kristy to represent us again in a heartbeat!” – Ed
“Kristy was fantastic when she represented us in both selling our old home and buying a new one. In selling our home, she gave us fantastic advice as to what repairs to make, how to stage the home, and how to set a price to sell the home quickly. Our house sold in 9 days! Kristy got to know us in the process and helped us find a fantastic new home with everything we were looking for. When problems arose in the negotiations, Kristy was quick to aid us in addressing the issues and made everything run very smoothly. I would recommend Kristy to anyone looking to buy or sell a property, no matter what the budget or limitations.” – Michelle
“Kristy is amazing! Set us up for success, and was always available and easy to get in contact with! So glad we had her!” – Becca
“Kristy was always right there when we needed her! She put up with my craziness almost daily! I would choose Kristy again hands down! Thank you again!” – Carly
“Kristy is wonderful! We were first time home buyers and she did a great job of easing us through the whole process. Explained everything very well and was always there when we had questions or needed help. She has a mega talent for matching you up with the perfect house!! <3 her!” – Beth
“Love love LOVE kristy!!!! ???????? she is so helpful and truly cared about us!!! We can’t thank her enough for getting us to our goal of closing in 3 weeks after putting in an offer!!! It was a pleasure working her!!!! And we would do it again in a heartbeat!” – Amanda
“Kristy worked so hard for us on a challenging property! We were able to be relaxed and patient because we knew she was working every angle and keeping on top of things. And she was patient with us figuring out what we really wanted. Kristy is hard-working, sensitive, and kind!” – Ann
“Kristy was absolutely amazing to work with! I moved from Seattle to Indiana, and she helped me at every step of the process. I’m a first time home buyer and was really nervous. Kristy was available off hours because I was 3 time zones away, and she always responded to my texts or emails within a few hours. I really appreciated Kristy’s honesty when we looked at houses; she told me about the neighborhoods, state of the house, and potential fixes that would be needed. I will recommend Kristy to anyone moving in or out of the area. She is amazing!” – Becky
“Kristy was a hilarious professional that helped us sell our home and buy our forever home. I am so thankful that my boss recommended her to us. She gave us excellent service and I am very thankful. To all looking for a home go with Kristy she is brillant!” – Lee

Client comments via facebook review recently:
“After 2 years on the market with another company, Kristy took over the sale of our house and sold it in weeks. She also tuned in to what we wanted in a next house and helped us find our ‘forever’ home. Both sales closed on the same day and she kept us calm through all the stress.

“My wife and I recently relocated from South Carolina to Lafayette, Indiana and purchased a home with Kristy. Circumstances forced us to arrange a six day house-hunting trip on extremely short notice and Kristy was able to arrange ~25 showings in a 3 day period. By day two Kristy had developed an idea of what our tastes were and refined our search to make better use of our limited time. She was extremely organized, friendly, knowledgeable and without her help we could not have purchased a home in the tight time frame we were dealing with. We were extremely fortunate to have worked with Kristy and will recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Lafayette!”

*The Conways were ideal clients for me. They came to town ready to get the job done. They were also very organized and very good at giving me feedback on the homes we saw. They quickly provided all documentation necessary to get us closed on time. We had some large obstacles to navigate in this deal and still managed to get them in the home on time, and a large part of their success was due to their own personal effort to make this happen. Thank you so much for being great to work with!

This home is very special. It was designed with the philosophy of Sarah Susankas’, Creating the Not So Big House book in mind, and closely resembles a plan that can be found within the book on page 23. You can find the link to her website here: http://www.susanka.com/. The owners have a special place in their heart for the Swedish Farmhouse style of this home, and built the home with all intentions of staying in it for the rest of their lives. However, when they were offered a job out of state that they could not refuse, they contacted me to sell the home. They very much love the home, but are excited about relocating also. And I am excited to share the details of this beautiful home with you!
Builders that support the ‘Not So Big’ philosophy can register on Susankas site, and that is where the sellers found Bruce Zabst, owner of Home Craft Builder’s of Indiana. He is a custom home builder who only builds a few homes a year on average. He had ties to Purdue University at the time and was enthusiastic about building in this area and to this plan. He laughed as we spoke about the process, and told me he was impressed with the level of scrutiny the building inspectors here gave his work. He used almost all local tradespeople and supplies, including 84 Lumber for the wood, Weber Foundation out of Zionsville, (http://www.weberconcrete.com/), Anderson windows and Kinder did the electric. He mentioned that the soil was very well drained on the lot and that he would foresee no issues with drainage or water penetration of the basement, due to ideal soil and lot conditions, as well as the installation of a perforated drain tile on the exterior. He also stated that the septic was inspected with great scrutiny by the Health Department upon installation, and is located in the back yard, and that the well is in the west front yard. He has said he would be more than happy to talk to potential buyers about the home if you have questions his information is here: http://homecraftbuilders.com/index.html.
The home has a unique mix of sophistication with an understated modern airy feel. It is bright and spacious, but still feels cozy and warm. It feels very light and happy to me and I think it has a special sense of art and family, and would be an inspirational home to the right person. The built in cabinets and shelving throughout the first floor is both beautiful and functional as storage and display. There is a piano alcove, a slate tiled foyer with large coat closet, maple hardwood flooring throughout, and custom built, handmade stairs, that have maple hardwood landings trimmed with cherry edges, maple doors, surround sound wired in, as well as Ethernet, and a wonderful breezeway to attach the home to the spacious 3 car detached garage. Not to mention the gorgeous land! 2.3 acres of very well maintained, flat, tree lined land, with an open field across. They had planned on finishing the basement but have not yet, and are offering all of the drywall that was purchased for the project, and is already in the basement, to be included with the purchase.
The owners know every person on the road and have felt very fortunate to have wonderful neighbors and a true sense of community in the area. They pay $100 a year to a neighbor to maintain the informal Home Owners Association, and they all pitch in to care for the lane if necessary, which is already paved, so low maintenance. There are two neighbors that currently plow the lane, and a lot of the owners are affiliated with Purdue University.
I will be posting a link to a video very soon, and would love to show you this home in person. If you have questions about this or any home for sale in our area, please contact me via phone, text or email.
