San Diego REALTOR® Krista Bell views her role in assisting buyers and sellers as more than a career – to her it''s also a responsibility and an opportunity to make a positive impact on other''s lives.

Home buyers and sellers have their money on the line, and Krista doesn''t take that lightly. Thus, she makes sure her clients have all the pertinent facts; that they understand the legalese contained in their contracts and disclosures; and that they know their options. She never sugar-coats the truth, and always points out both the positive and negative in a potential decision.

No one likes surprises in a real estate transaction, so Krista ensures that her clients'' know what to expect at each step between agreement and closing – and that they are forewarned about the glitches that can and do affect a closing.

Krista is known for her easy-going, friendly attitude, her cooperative spirit, and her love of laughter. But when her clients'' interests are at stake, her intense loyalty, tenacity, negotiating skills, and "out of the box" problem solving abilities come to the forefront.

Before moving to San Diego, Krista was a headhunter for the accounting and finance sector and a bank supervisor for an online bank in Atlanta. These positions not only honed her financial skills, but taught her the skills necessary to be the calm in the storm and to maintain the positive outlook that leads to successful problem solving.

Krista began her real estate career as an assistant to four of San Diego County''s top agents at a boutique agency, then moved on to becoming licensed. Her experience as an assistant convinced her that she wanted to associate herself only with the best agents in San Diego, so in 2009 she joined Ascent Real Estate.

Although Krista loves living in North Park, she and her family still make an annual trip back to her home state of Louisiana to attend the Jazz Festival in New Orleans.

In keeping with her desire to make a positive impact, she supports BoystoMen.org and donates both time and money to helping the homeless at San Diego''s Rescue Mission.

When asked what she appreciates most about being a San Diego REALTOR®, Krista says it''s the fact that each day brings something – or someone – new. The variety keeps her fresh and on her toes, and the friendships she enjoys with present and past clients bring a special richness to her life.

When you''re looking for a knowledgeable San Diego REALTOR® who will spare no effort to help fulfill your real estate goals, look no further than Krista Bell.

Ratings & Reviews

I met Krista Bell thanks to a referral from one my neighbor. I had decided to put my condo on the market and was looking for a real estate agent, and my neighbor recommended Krista. When she described her, she said: Kirsta will go “above and beyond for you”. I didn’t know what she meant at the time, but I was soon to find out. I met Krista for an initial meeting at a coffee shop (she was very accommodating with the time and location….Downtown during a Padres game!??! She was ok with that). My first impression was great: very professional, she came prepared with all the information that I needed and more. Moreover, she is very easy to talk to and she explains everything in detail. After our first meeting, I knew she would be my real estate agent. She made the sale process (the first time for me) very smooth and easy. And she really went above and beyond! I have a small dog who I love dearly, and the idea of having strangers looking at my place with my dog there without me made me feel very uneasy. She picked up immediately and took the time to come to go to my place before every showing, in order to make my dog comfortable. I have to admit I don’t trust many people with my dog, but I trusted Krista and never worried for one second. After a few viewings and an open house, we had multiple offers coming in and Krista helped me choose the best one and negotiated the best terms for me. Throughout the process, she was always in touch with me with updates and explanations (I always had so many questions!!) even on the weekend and late at night!! I never had to wait longer than a couple of hour for an answer. I wish there were more professionals like Krista, she offers top-notch customer service. Selling a place also have an emotional side to it, and Krista was well aware of that. She was always very supportive, and understating of my mixed feelings and emotions through the process. She transformed a cold sale transaction into an emotional process, and a very pleasant one. I would definitely recommend Krista to anybody looking for a high qualified, knowledgeable, professional and caring real estate agent. You will be in good hands, and you will understand what “above and beyond” really means.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Pine Valley, CA.

What an amazing Real Estate professional! Krista is hands down the most knowledgeable, diligent and hardworking agents I have ever had the pleasure to work with, and I have worked with many through the years. I have actually worked with Krista on 4-transactions over the past two years, and each one has gone through the entire process without any issues. Moreover, because of her in-depth knowledge and experience, she consistently hits the mark on every aspect of the transactions including market conditions and the associated price points, sellers requirements and even managing the escrow companies to assure they are doing the right things at the right times. Krista gets 5-stars on every rating category and I would discourage the notion of using another agent on any real estate transaction.   More Less

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 in North Park, San Diego, CA.

I cannot say enough good things about our Realtor Krista Bell. Buying a home in San Diego on a budget was defiantly a challenge but I never felt that Krista was pushy or trying to persuade us to buy home that was beyond our means. I think we literally saw ALL the two-bedroom condos out there that were within our budget and Krista was very supportive and informative about all of them. Krista was always very responsive, when we had any question she would answer right away and always made us feel that all our questions were valid. She made the process of buying our first home as easy and as transparent as possible. She always went above and beyond the necessary, event when we had issues with our mortgage company, she went beyond by calling the mortgage company to keep them on track and doing their job. Because of the issues with the mortgage company, I think if we had any other realtor who was not as dedicated as Krista, I dont think we would own a home. Krista really made home ownership possible. If you are looking for a realtor who is caring and hardworking and who will go above and beyond to get you into your dream home there is no one better than Krista.   More Less
