Kristin is a force of nature with a team of superwomen providing exceptional support. When my parents asked me to coordinate the sale of their Central Orange County home of 51 years, I was determined that they would have the best and most profitable home sale experience possible. After extensive internet research, and interviewing/grilling the top five realtors I’d identified, only the two strongest teams remained: one that specialized in older ranch style homes like my parents’ -- in my parents’ hometown no less -- and the Kristin Halton Group (KHG), whose sales lists tended towards multi-million dollar coastal homes. Though it might not have seemed the obvious choice, I signed on with KHG as Kristin is truly passionate about her work. KHG’s commitment to achieving our mutual goals of "highest sales price/best experience" convinced me that commitment should be spelled with a capital “k.” I still feel that way today. The sales experience essentially happened just as Kristin had initially planned it: my parents’ home sold quickly -- for $5,000 over the asking price – $55,000 higher than the “home town” realty team said it would! When the buyers’ loan unexpectedly fell through, KHG helped them find a better lender. Now that’s, Kommittment. Thank you, KHG!
I can not even fully put into words how absolutely AMAZING Kristen and her team were. Over the past 2 1/2 years we had been trying to sell our house in Corona. No one seemed to be able to seal the deal. We had given 2 other Realtors a full YEAR each to sell it and they just couldn't do it. Kristen came in with her team, and made it a personal quest to make this happen. Within 1 month of having the listing agreement, she completely had the house restaged, and got an AMAZING offer from a past client SIGHT UNSEEN in person! We accepted the offer and it just closed today! NOT only that, but she also listed our house in Huntington Beach, and got it sold During this entire COVID-19 Pandemic! Then to make life that much more beautiful, She helped my husband and I find our Forever Home! This house we are in, is SO perfect for us and our dogs. She listened to what I wanted and needed to feel completely "At Home". She was honest with me and kept us focused on what we wanted. Most realtors would allow you to just get excited and run with it, but that doesn't mean you will end up with what you truly want. ( Hence what happened with our house in Huntington) Kristen got me. She understood me. And I can not even begin to express how Grateful and Thankful we are! WE LOVE OUR NEW HOME!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!! You did what seemed impossible! And you did it all during a Pandemic!
I’m disappointed I can only give Kristin and her team 5 stars! Kristin is the most professional, knowledgeable and instinctive realtor I’ve ever worked with...and I’ve bought and sold 14 properties. She sold our home quickly during the Covid scare. She not only obtained multiple offers, she made sure she had multiple backups. Once the house was under contract, her team took over and handled everything! Kristin is truly impressive! Highly recommend!
Kristin and her team executed the sale of our home flawlessly from listing to sold. They negotiated for us a full price sale which closed in 48 days in the middle of a pandemic. Very impressive.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Kristin, Gina and Caitlin. They were extremely responsive to any request and we ended up purchasing a home which was perfect for us. It required quite a bit of patience & negotiation and they did a terrific job!
You want a SHARP, well organized, killer real estate team that works hard for you? GO HERE. This team got me a great home, great loan when others couldn’t.
Kristin's knowledge of the marketplace, her marketing skills, the competence of her staff, and her guidance through the closing were all first rate. A terrific experience through something (selling a house) that I only do every 20 years or so. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
My advice to anyone reading this review is to list your home with Kristin, take her advice about how to prepare your home for sale, and let Kristin and her team do what they do so well. Kristin knows real estate like no one I've met, and her team which works behind the scenes is remarkably well organized and thorough. I chose to meet with Kristin after a careful online search of realtors in the Newport Beach area, so I had high expectations for Kristin. She met or exceeded all my expectations. I was impressed with her marketing plan, which included not only traditional print media but also a comprehensive internet marketing campaign. Her team was exceptionally organized. They frequently went to the house to coordinate workmen, helped multiple times to arrange donations of furniture, handle inspections, and so many little things that kept my long commutes to the house at a minimum. Kristin's team uses software called Basecamp which tracks all tasks associated with selling a house. I always knew just what had been done and what the plans were. I never had to wonder what about what was going on. And when you're selling a home, there is a lot to keep track of. All in all, my experience could not have been better. From Kristin's advice and negotiating skills to the remarkable support of her team, the selling of my mother-in-law's home was as painless as possible. Let Kristin and her team handle your sale and you will be very glad you did.
Kristin helped us to sell our home and then buy a new one (Costa Mesa then Huntington Beach). She is truly a consummate professional who knows the Costa Mesa market inside and out. She is an amazing aggressive negotiator, right when we needed it. For our sale, she helped us immensely with the end stages of finishing a very large remodel. If you ever need this - go with Kristin - she truly helped us finish our house so that it was the most marketable. She referred contractors, advised, brought in designers, and more. And, this was months prior to putting the home on the market. She helped us to price and then market the house flawlessly. Sale was quick and without a hitch. For our new home, she helped us to secure a relo property and negotiated aggressively on terms, credits, close dates, etc. I would use Kristin again and again. Worth every penny!
Kristin was incredible start to finish. She is honest, creative, and is there every step of the way. One of the things I loved most about her is that she is always prepared! She just doesn’t rely on a plan A, she has a plan B, C, and D.You never know what will happen during the sale and she was on top of it. If it wasn’t for her and her team we would not have found a buyer in ten days at a record price for the area.
