Kristi Staker is the only real estate agent who lives and works exclusively in the area of Zion National Park. After she and husband Allan developed and built Gifford Park in Springdale, the Premier custom home development in Springdale, she became involved in all aspects of Real Estate. “I have a working knowledge of the town, the ordinances, the community, the businesses and I know most of the people who live and work here. I am familiar with almost all the properties in town. People who are here are usually on vacation and have limited time to look at property. They want someone who is available, knowledgeable and close. That’s me.”
Kristi is the top agent in the Zion National Park area for good reason. Her approach and thorough process is quite different from many other realtors. “I love introducing this incredible place to people who share my excitement for these amazing red rock vistas. I enjoy meeting and working with people, helping them find the right property so that they can also enjoy the relaxed yet invigorating living this canyon offers. Because I live and work in Springdale, I’m going to make sure that every buyer is happy with their property purchase and experience. After all, in a town of 640 people, I’m going to meet them on the trails, in stores and restaurants and in the canyon. I don’t think of myself as just selling Real Estate. I’m choosing my neighbors!”
Every October, she and her husband host an annual Dutch Oven Cookout and Barn Dance. This has become a community-wide event to which all of her buyers, sellers and neighbors are invited for a chance to get to know one another.
Kristi loves selling in her small and unique market. The land adjacent to Zion National Park isn’t a place that has much room to grow. Property is limited and valuable. Springdale, gateway town to the Park is the only place where you can live surrounded on three sides by Zion National Park! Every property has jaw-dropping red rock views! Most residents can walk to the Zion National Park within minutes of their front door. This is a market with no undesirable properties.
In her spare time, she and her husband love to explore the area, looking for petroglyphs, pictographs, dinosaur tracks and limitless new discoveries in the red rock canyons and deserts of Southern Utah. There’s never enough time to do and see everything the area has to offer.

We thought some particular strengths of Kristi included: 1) Very efficient communication (not too much, not too little) 2) Very honest "fair broker" role in the purchase process 3) Very effective management of the technical aspects of the purchase and closing 4) Very good follow through including support beyond the purchase date If you are considering buying in the Springdale area, Kristi is an excellent choice as a true partner in the process!

Kristi is AWESOME to work with! She has helped us through real estate deals and gone to bat for us and fought for us when when someone else was doing a shady back door offer. Highly recommend. Great communicator and good to work with. A true Professional!!

If you are looking for a home in the Zion area this agent is the one. She has tons of experience in the area, her former work on the development side really helps in knowing the real estate trends and more important the local government issues. She knows construction and is the first agent I have come across that actually looks at the detail of how a home is built. She is detail oriented and stays on top of the entire process. She was available at all times, not waiting for a return phone call. Without a doubt the most qualified realtor I have come across

Kristi was always communicative and available. Our deal ended up being more complicated than it first appeared, but she came up with solutions and stayed on top of it. She was great.

Kristi is an intelligent, hardworking caring realtor. I had some options when deciding who I would chose to help me sell my home. Kristi has been a friend for some years. I knew she would be wonderful to work with. She didn't disappoint ! Kristi is knowledgeable and experienced. She also is understanding and easy to work with. Kristi provided emotional support to me during this stressful life event. She has a positive, can-do attitude and succeeded in selling my home and getting me the price I wanted. I highly recommend Kristi Staker. She is awesome and I am so pleased with myself for choosing her as my realtor.
