“Home is where your story begins.” — T.S. Eliot
Kristen’s story is her clients’ stories. This self-professed, down-to-earth country girl has been where her clients are now: a homeowner leading the home buying/selling process. Luckily, homes in Durant are being snapped up quickly because the city is a haven for families, thanks to its excellent school district and homegrown, community atmosphere. However, the process of selling a home without any support or specialist guidance can still be a daunting task. What questions should you ask? What deadlines do you need to know about? How do you make your offer appealing but competitive? On a mission to answer these questions firsthand, Kristen knew that doing a For Sale by Owner would give her a clear look into what her clients go through — and so she decided to grow her own expertise through personal experience. When she got her real estate license, she decided to put what she learned into active practice. From the inspections and appraisals to negotiations, staging, and market research, Kristen mastered every step of the process. But she’s convinced that this is not what makes her such an effective real estate specialist and integral part of the 580 Realty team. Rather, it’s her empathy for her clients’ experiences when they intend to buy and sell a home in Durant that makes Kristen an asset to homeowners and clients. After having spent 14 years (and counting!) in the city of Durant, Kristen can’t imagine living anywhere else. She likes to think of Durant as the city version of Goldilocks: It’s not too big and it’s not too small. There are a score of amenities like movie theaters, shopping centers, bowling alleys, and more — minus all the congestion, traffic, overcrowding, and pollution of a big city. Here, relationships matter the most and, if you’ve never lived in Durant, expect to spend a few leisurely minutes running into and chatting with your hairdresser while you’re finishing off errands. This is a town where “everybody knows your name,” and that promise contributes to why families come to Durant and end up building roots. Today, Kristen can be found marathoning the MCU and Star Wars movies with her kids or playing with her three dogs, an Australian shepherd mix, a mini shepherd, and a Schnoodle. Though she misses the days where she could homeschool her kids, 7 and 12 years of age, she was more than happy to have them transition to Durant’s school system. Now, she’s ready to focus on helping her clients find their perfect home and live their dream life. To consult with Kristen on the home-buying and selling process in Durant, (903) 805-1445.
