Raised in the vibrancy and culture of Salt Lake City, I became a small business manager in southern Utah, a front desk agent at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Silver Lake, a website developer and internet marketer. But all roads lead to home, and my home is Park City. Professional Achievement Award recipient in 2013, Park City Board of REALTORS¨ Statistics Committee member, overall Park City aficionado.
Park City's landscape and recreation opportunities alone make for an out-of-this world experience. There truly is no other place in the country where you can find towering mountain peaks, wide flat valleys, and almost cartoonishly gorgeous forests filled with aspens and tall old pine trees like we have here. You could hike or bike for miles and miles and only notice a quiet deer bounding past. You can stand atop a rocky ridge and peer out across the landscape and breathe in the crisp, clean mountain air. We basically live in a coffee commercial.
I get to feed my inner history buff by walking past miners' homes and houses of ill repute (formerly, we assume). Park City is a magical place, where all the montages from 1980s ski movies still happen (I'm not kidding about this; just watch gym attendance explode after the first snow as we all scramble to get back in shape for the season). Where the first snow sets the town a flutter. Where the natural transition of summer to fall and fall to winter just builds in energy and excitement as we look to the skies with anticipation of the coming snows. In addition to the spectacular activities available, we waste no time getting from the slopes to dozens of fine dining restaurants with the best culinary talent from across the world. Our art galleries and fashion boutiques offer incredible perspectives and unique genius. Our concerts run year-round including hometown bands, traveling pop stars, and the Utah Symphony. The magic of this quiet mountain town attracts all sorts, including the best of the best in all artistic and professional persuasions.
Whether it be a luxury ski condo tucked on the slopes at Park City Mountain Resort or an opulent ski-in/ski-out home in the Colony at Canyons Resort, a terrific vacation rental condo on Main Street, or a golf home at Promontory, a beautiful home within our nationally-acclaimed school system or a celebrity ski estate in Deer Valley, the best agent to help you buy or sell your home is one who is passionate about this beautiful mountain town.
And I, unabashedly, am.

Kristina is a pleasure to work with. There are endless details in a transaction that all have specific timelines. I have been extremely impressed with Kristina's response time and proactive approach in handling the issues and concerns that have arisen. She is dedicated to acting in her clients' best interests and ensuring that they have an amazing experience. She has earned this five star rating.

Kristina was so on the ball. Even before we had a question she would have it answered. She was very thorough with everything…down to the last detail. Which is wonderful!

Kristina was great to work with! We had a new construction transaction that took a lot of interaction with the clients and builder over the course of about 4 or 5 months. Kristina was there for her clients every step of the way was impressive in the way that she handled all of the details. I wish everyone was as professional and pleasant to work with as she was!

Incredible! Kristina made the experience of buying a home 1,200 miles from where we currently live as easy as buying the house next door.

Kristina is a great broker - she goes out of her way to answer all of your questions, leads you through the entire house buying process - she even did a face time house showing. Her personality was always very upbeat and very professional as well. She was not pushy in the least, but was always easy to communicate with. She had great suggestions on how to close the deal and, we were successful in our purchase. It was a great and smooth experience from beginning to end because she is such a great broker. I can't praise or recommend her enough.

Kristina is an excellent realtor, one with whom we enjoyed working from start to finish. She is efficient, energetic, and enthusiastic. When we first contacted her and she came to our condo, she immediately began to familiarize herself with the property, even though we were months away from putting the condo on the market. She examined all the details of the property, took a series of pictures, and wrote up several descriptions. Consequently, when we notified her to put the property on the market, she had everything ready and the property immediately went on notice in the various sales channels. Throughout the selling process she was upbeat and cheerful, maintained a positive attitude, and kept in constant contact with us, even though we were out of town. We recommend her most highly and without reservation, and if we were selling or seeking other properties, would happily work with her again.

Kristina is an excellent real estate agent. She is very knowledgeable and kept us informed at every turn. I felt like she valued my situation as much as the sale of a million dollar home even though we just sold a family cabin. She worked hard with us to help us get the cabin sold in a very timely manner. I would recommend her to anyone who needed to sell any real estate. And best of all, I consider her a good friend that I could call at any time.
Susan — Oct 20, 2015
She was very helpful and kept us well informed. I was able to contact her any time I had questions.

If I didn't already have my brokers license, this gal would be my agent for life! Not only is she educated, well informed and respected in the community, she's absolutely hilarious. If she wasn't so successful in real estate, I think she'd give John Oliver a run for his money!
