What a pleasure it was dealing with Kristi Rike of Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville Real Estate. Trust sales can be arduous and a difficult time emotionally for those involved. Kristi was a amazing. She was there at every turn. She managed crews to get the house ready for sale, kept a watchful eye on things, even managed to get over 10 offers on the house through some pretty adept marketing. The final sale price far exceeded expectations. The sale was a truly flawless process from start to finish as the house both sold and closed within three weeks of the first showing. That has to be a record. Her background and training speak volumes when it comes to her empathetic approach to the business and eye for detail. Without question, she is one of the best realtors in the Richmond area.

Kristi was Excellent
Kristi was excellent! She really took the time to understand our needs and helped us get a great deal on our first home. - Justin and Tara
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. - Sally Tucker
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. - Tara Stephan-Sawyer
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!! - Meredith
