Real Estate Agent

When it comes to your real estate needs, Kristi Cotton is POSITIVELY MOTIVATED.

When you first meet Kristi, its her genuine willingness to help you that you'll notice first. Her passion of wanting to help others combined with sharing her love of living in Hawaii makes Real Estate a perfect fit. Exceptional customer service comes naturally to Kristi, and the importance of following up promptly. You'll know that you, and your real estate needs, are her top priority. When Kristi sets her mind to something, she doesn't stop until she's reached her goal. It's her persistence and tenacity that has made Kristi successful in real estate and in life.

"In everything I do, I strive to give my all in order to achieve the best possible results. The opportunity to help others find their own piece of paradise on the island drives me as a real estate professional. Making a positive difference for people is all the motivation I need in my career."

Her 21 years of sales experience in the Hawaii visitor advertising business has given Kristi the tools and experience she needs to help you buy or sell your Hawaii real estate.

Kristi has been buying and selling homes on the Big Island for 22 years, with a background in investment/speculative home projects. Her resourcefulness, and knack for coming up with creative solutions are what make the difference in having a successful real estate transaction. From Condominiums to Castles, your real estate needs will be met.

In her free time, she volunteers for her kid's swim team and school activities. She loves mountain biking, ocean swimming, hiking, and cooking organic plant based meals for her family.

""In October of 2019, my husband and I began the process of looking for a house to buy in Hawaii. We first visited with Kristi on the phone and she was able to help us dream of what we wanted in a home, and to prepare us for an actual visit. This was done by Kristi sending us multiple listings to start creating a list to look at when we visited that December. Kristi helped us answer questions such as desired house size, neighborhood logistics, travel estimations (GPS and real time driving on island are totally different due to tourism). We visited in December and was able to make a decision the first week we were there. I believe we were able to do this because Kristi listens well, ask the right questions, and knows her way around island, and took the time to get to know us before we even arrived. Once we arrived Kristi had organized our week so that not one day was wasted! Lastly, another bonus, she called to check in even after we moved into our home, which is usually unheard of once the sale is final. Do yourself a favor and give her a call, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!" "

"I could not have been happier working with Kristi to purchase our dream home on the Big Island. Kristi was so easy to communicate with, and tracked down the perfect place for our family while we were still on the mainland. Once we came to see it, Kristi took care of every part of the purchase for us, and kept us so well informed of all the specific parts of owning a home in Hawaii. I could not recommend working with Kristi enough-especially if you are trying to purchase while still on the mainland."

"Five stars says it all! Kristi is a realtor's realtor. You couldn't find anyone better to help you find that perfect house. And, after you find that home, Kristi will guide you through any possible difficulties in escrow. She is smart, pays attention to details, responsive to your needs, and is a consummate professional."

"I will have no hesitation to recommend Kristi if the opportunity arises. We really appreciated Kristi's local knowledge of the market and the excellent communication of herself and her team. We found the perfect condo based on our discussion with Kristi and are very happy with the end result."

"Kristi was instrumental in helping us secure our current home here in Kailua-Kona. She had a strong knowledge of the area and knew our preferences. We were Chicago transplants to the big island and needed to secure a home quickly. We were very lucky to have Kristi to help us land our current home which was in a very hot market and wouldn't have been it long. We had an offer within one week. Thanks to Kristi to make this happen."

- R. Hinz

"Kristi helped us buy our condo in Hawaii this past April and we were very impressed and pleased with her responsiveness, knowledge and ability to take care of everything remotely since we were handling the transaction from Los Angeles. We never felt like we were unaware of what was going on during the process, and came away feeling that we had the best advice in terms of making an effective (accepted) offer etc. Navigating all the paperwork and things that needed to happen during escrow was easy, with Kristi's help-everything was done efficiently and remotely over email in a few weeks and we are now the proud and grateful owners of a beachfront property in Kailua-Kona!"

- A. Kostich

"We have bought two houses from Kristi and sold one. She is really easy going, and never pressures you into anything like a normal sales person. She is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, and she always responded really quickly to all of our questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an honest, reliable real estate agent."
