Kristen Maley


Straight shot to the finish
• Never walks. Leaps, flies, dances
• Not a moment wasted
• You don’t even know it’s being done, and it’s done


Kristen walks into your life, and things happen. She has vision, a gorgeous mind, and she speaks the language. Her father was a developer, she married a builder, and she’s been a broker for over 20 years. Show her a parcel of forgotten land, then stand back. She’ll tell you what to build, how to build it, call out exterior and interior details, lay out the budget, timeline, investment potential – probably, check off the entire punch list. All in her head. They say: Without Kristen, we know our home wouldn’t have sold. And: Flair for marketing, sales, staging – and she directed our photo shoot. And: Multi-level thinker. Professional. Trustworthy. Solid. And: She makes us laugh. We say: Not your ordinary anything. One of the most authentic people you’ll ever meet. And: Her clients know, they won the lottery. And: Lay it on her – she’ll never sink under the weight of your hopes.
