Above and Beyond

Kristi was dedicated to supporting my family through the entire search and purchase process. She was knowledgeable about each process and option, and guided me through complicated negotiations with unquestionable professionalism. Kristi is the realtor you need on your side, through the first or fifth, home purchase!

Great Experience

Kristi did such a great job helping me find the right home!!! I kept saying she must have so much patience as I often changed the parameters of my search, but she had no problem with that and ALWAYS honored my requests. Kristi was always available, we texted, emailed and made phone calls and she was right there with immediate responses. This is an extremely tight market, and I began to wonder if I would find what I wanted; she always encouraged me that the "perfect" one would happen and she was right. From beginning the search to the closing she was absolutely there for me. Thank you Kristi for all of your help and making a stressful situation into a delightful experience.

Best realtor in RVA!

Kristi was recommended to us by friends who bought a house earlier in the year. We were so glad that they suggested her, because Kristi has gone above and beyond for us. This was our first home purchase. We were completely clueless about the entire process, and Kristi took the time to explain to us everything that would happen, well in advance. She gave us excellent advice when we were viewing homes, pointing out features that we would like or should avoid. She got to know us and what we wanted in a home. She was waiting for us in the parking lot of our lawyer’s office when we closed (covid restrictions) and, since we bought the house, she has texted us occasionally to see how things are going. She also gave us several recommendations for people to do minor work on the home, as we have only been in the Richmond area for a year. I would recommend Kristi Rike to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. She will get you a great deal, offer fantastic advice, and be there for you every step of the way.

Awesome experience!

Kristi is amazing! She helped us find our "forever" home and she helped us sell our old home (sold in one day!)! She is very attentive, she was always readily available to answer any questions we had, and she walked us through every step of the home-buying and home-selling process. She tailors her business to what suits you and your family and she takes the time to get to know who you are and what you are looking for. She is the best!! I recommend her to anyone looking to buy and/or sell!! We love Kristi!!

Amazing experience!

This was our first time buying a house, and needless to say, my husband and I were very nervous! Kristi led our house hunt from the first moment with an incredibly positive attitude, and she made the process seem less stressful than we anticipated. There were bumps along the way with tricky sellers, but Kristi was there with us throughout the whole process, giving us valuable advice and helping to guide us to make the decision that worked best for US! Kristi always had our best interest in mind, but she never tried to steer us in a direction we didn't want to go. She is a great listener, and sometimes it seemed like she knew what we wanted or would like before we even got to the house! Ultimately, we chose the last house on our long hunt, and Kristi was there to help us with all of the confusing technical responsibilities of buying a house, as well as to celebrate with us!

We truly feel like she not only prioritized our needs and wishes, making us feel comfortable and welcomed, but she also made us feel like part of her family. Kristi cares deeply about her family and staying in touch, so to make us feel like we were part of that dynamic was very special. She is open, honest, and warm, and she will make you feel at ease with every bit of the home-buying experience! I cannot recommend her more highly.
