Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Macalester-Groveland, Saint Paul, MN.
Clearly the best realtor in the Twin Cities, She marketed my little house like it was a mansion, with the end result being sold in 3 days, at more than the asking price. She provided a stager, and an expert photographer, knew her stuff as far as setting a price, and was with me every step of the way, including coming to the closing. She made selling my house fun!! I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in New Brighton, MN.
My husband and I came to Krista with a complicated real estate scenario and she made it happen! She priced our home perfectly to attract a lot of attention, we got multiple offers and sold it for full asking price in 2 days. She also helped us get an accepted offer 10% below asking price on the house we purchased. She is truly a professional and knows how to get a deal done. I would recommend her to anyone trying to sell their home!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Roseville, MN.
My job relocated me from GA to MN for a senior executive position. Krista went above and beyond to assist me with this transition. After having many unfavorable experiences with GA real estate agents, Krista found me an agent in GA who was able to sell my home. Krista personally managed the GA real estate agent "AND" she staged my GA property so that it would sell quickly. My GA property looked beautiful after Krista did the staging and it did sell quickly. On a parallel track, Krista found me a temporary apartment in MN that would take 2 large Saint Bernard dogs and the commute from the temporary apartment to my job was less than 10 minutes. After my house sold in GA, Krista showed us many beautiful properties in MN and presented several offers on our behalf. Given my work schedule, Krista was flexible and was able to show properties at convenient times. Krista coached and mentored my husband and I to ensure we purchased a property with great resale. Krista would also protect our interest by not allowing us to pay more than what the property is worth. Even when my husband and I got stressed, Krista always remained very calm and professional strategically guiding us through the process. Krista is also an agent that "understands the objectives of her customers" and she helps you to accomplish them. For example, I needed to be close to work and my husband needed a house with the master on the main. Krista found us a beautiful home at 1429 County Road B2 W, Roseville, MN 55113. Initially the sellers would not take our offer. Krista did not give up, she went back with counter offers and spoke with the sellers personally (in person) on our behalf. Krista is a keen negotiator. She realized that in order to close the deal, she needed to develop a relationship with the sellers and she did exactly that. As a result of Krista's relationship with the seller's they accepted our offer. Krista has influence and power across the industry and she leveraged that influence so that we could close on this property in 2 WEEKS (unbelievable). After closing on the property, she then provided me a list of all the utility agencies, contractors to install hard wood floors and carpet, painting company, window treatment company, designers, etc.... Krista provided me with everything that I needed to expedite moving into a home that we are VERY EXCITED ABOUT. The words that I would use to describe Krista is friendly, highly professional, great communicator and negotiator, powerful real estate agent with lots of influence and connections in the industry, great coach and mentor. I have done several relocations during the course of my 35 year career and I have never experienced the type of service that Krista provided. My satisfaction with Krista FAR EXCEEDS a Disney WOW!!! Krista is "walk on water outstanding and exemplary". For everyone reading this review, please do not waste your time with other agents. There is no one in the industry that can even come close to what you will experience by working with Krista Wolter. Pick up the phone and call Krista right now. Call now, you will be glad that you did!!!!!!!!
Bought a home in 2014 in Highland, Saint Paul, MN 55116.
Krista was very good about finding the type of homes we were looking for in a neighborhood that perfectly fit our needs. We didn't have a lot of time to shop for homes and Krista was very good at setting up showings for us on short notice. We would definitely recommend Krista!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Summit Hill, Saint Paul, MN.
Most Realtors show houses. Krista markets the home. She provided me with a comprehensive marketing plan and collateral information to back up pricing.. She understands financing, has great connections to financial officers as well as excellent contractors that are fair and fast. My home was vacant. I was across the country for the entire selling process. Not one day did I worry about my house. She checked on it at least three times a week, and when it was really cold, daily.
Her negotiation skills are great and she understands the nuance of the deal.
I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their home...to anyone who wants to be treated with respect and kept in the loop.
She is great. She makes it happen

Krista did a great job helping us find a house. She was very patient, we looked for almost a year before we found the house that was right for us. And she was very responsive, she came out to help us look at houses we wanted to see with minimal notice.
She helped us find the right house for us. She did not try to pressure us to buy or appear anxious to just close a deal. Even after we found a house we liked she pointed out all the things she thought were wrong about it, to make sure we were making a good decision for us.
And after the sale she has continued to be available. She has helped us find a contractor and a designer to do some of the remodeling we wanted to do, and has given us good advice on the remodeling decisions herself.
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Saint Paul, MN.
I'm a Realtor in Pennsylvania whose 89 year old parents needed to sell their home that they had lived in for over 40 years in Minnesota. I contacted three Realtors, and my parents interviewed all three. Krista was the obvious first choice, based both on her warmth in communicating with my parents and professionalism over the 'phone with me. Her work ethic, her team, and her willingness to accomodate special needs all went above and beyond. Living in the neighborhood, and the house being vacant, Krista checked on the house every couple of days. She had answers and solutions for every facet of the transaction from beginning to end, no matter what came up. She has connections with various contractors and servicepeople; they were at her fingertips and completed their tasks immediately. The home was priced correctly, sold quickly at full price and settled smoothly. I have no doubt that if it had taken longer to sell, she would have continued to be just as attentive over a longer period of time. I'm looking forward to meeting Krista in person the next time I visit. For anyone looking to sell or buy real estate, I would highly recommend Krista Wolter.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Saint Paul, MN.
Krista embodies the ideal real estate agent. As sellers who lived in our home for over 28 years, we were very inexperienced with current markets and trends, and relied heavily on Krista to give us the information we needed. She advised us every step of the way, provided us with quality service professionals, even helped in the move. She is the ultimate professional who is there 24/7 for her clients. A true gem!
Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Summit-University, Saint Paul, MN.
Krista was extremely patient dealing with all of my questions and doubts as a first-time home buyer. She never showed frustration with my (frequent) cold feet, but continually answered questions and came up with new suggestions until I felt comfortable with a decision. She served as a liaison throughout the process and provided a base of knowledge I certainly wouldn't have acquired on my own.
