Kristy was great in helping our family achieve our goal of buying a multi-family house in a very tight market. She sent us leads twice a week, and provided critical advise in framing our successful offer; and working diligently with sellers & their broker resolving P&S issues. Kristy was always responsive to our needs via cell phone any time, any day! Thanks much Kristy! Bob & Cathy Pickett, Emmanuel Andrade & Katie Pickett
I’ve never worked with a broker who was more on top of things than Kristy. She quickly figured out that I was looking for guidance and offered it gently, but firmly. She certainly knew the market and how to price my home. And her suggestion of a stager could not have been better. As a result my house sold well over ask, negotiations about inspection results, etc. went smoothly and with little involvement from me. She made the whole process simple and profitable. I would easily use her again for a future sale. Thanks, Kristy
“I first met Kristy at an open house; The property was immaculately staged, there were flowers, cookies, fresh coffee—and lots of people attending. She greeted every potential buyer with a relaxed smile and loads of information. Not surprisingly, she received several offers that day. After meeting her, I knew she was the one who would sell our house and help us negotiate the purchase of our next home. Although complicated and stressful, the whole process was smooth and successful because of Kristy. Now, I will always recommend Kristy to folks looking for a new realtor. Look no further, she’s the one!”Danielle Robinson
“I highly recommend working with Kristy. She helped me sell my condo and buy my new house, and she was great to work with for both. Kristy knows the local market, is an adept negotiator, and consummate professional. She had excellent ideas and advice for preparing my property for sale so that it was well presented, and I got a great price. Kristy is very knowledgeable, and was great at handling negotiations for me, both buying and selling, especially when a tricky situation arose following inspection of the condo I was selling (a previously unknown oil tank buried in the yard, which had to be removed). She was wonderful at helping calm me down during what can be very stressful and emotional processes, and is just a warm, funny, caring person, which made working with her that much better!”Allison Taylor
“Kristy was an integral part of purchasing our first home. We contacted Kristy on a high recommendation from a co-worker, and are so glad that we did. On our first meeting, she took the time to understand what was important to us, like what our ideal floor plan would be like, and our concerns about our lack of knowledge of the market and the process. With her help, we found our house and had an offer accepted in just about 3 weeks!”
Dalina and Eric
“Kristy is amazing. Her instincts are spot on. She understands the market and its variabilities. And she knows the communities and neighborhoods where her clients are buying and selling. Kristy’s professionalism is second to none. She is well-respected and highly recommended with good reason. She listened to us and that she understood what we wanted, even when we weren’t able to articulate it. She was always respectful and candid and eternally patient. I can’t imagine a better process. We are so thankful for what she did for our family. We can’t recommend her enough.”
Robin and Paul Melone
“Thank you so much for all of your help in selling my house. The house in Lawrence Estates is the 6th house that I have sold. Your consultative approach made it an excellent experience and a very satisfying financial transaction. Your advice on staging was spot on. I am still in awe of your selling strategy that resulted in 6 offers in 2 days. Not to mention that the house sold for over the asking price. I am very appreciative for your help and would recommend you to anyone looking to sell a house.” Felice Kincannon
“When it was time to sell our house, our mantra was, “Price it right and get it sold.” Kristy B. showed us almost a dozen comparable properties that had sold within the past few months in our town, and we felt assured the price she suggested was the “magic number” that would bring a buyer and make us a nice profit, without letting our house languish on the market. Four days after listing our house for sale, we had an offer above our asking price, and knew we’d made the right choice in trusting Kristy’s expertise. She really knows her stuff! Kristy gave us excellent advice about cosmetic updates to our house that would attract buyers, including paint colors, furniture placement, and even smooth jazz playing in the background at our showings. When it came time to take the all-important photographs, Kristy and her team rearranged furniture and placed props such as table settings and plants which made our house look welcoming, inviting, spacious, and attractive to buyers. Our house looked dynamite online and I feel sure that’s what packed our first open house, even on a holiday weekend. With a lot of elbow grease and just a little money, our house was staged perfectly for a buyer to imagine herself “at home” there.”
The McIntire Family
“Kristy helped us negotiate a great price on a wonderful house, with a perfect combination of assertiveness and professionalism. We had complete confidence in letting her speak on our behalf as we moved through the process of buying our new home. In the end, we got exactly what we wanted at the best price we could negotiate, and we couldn’t have done it without Kristy’s advice and guidance.”
Jenipher and Tim“Working with Kristy was an amazing experience. As a first time home-buyer I was very nervous to work with an agent who I did not know for fear of being taken advantage of. From my first meeting with Kristy, I had nothing but absolute trust for our working relationship. Instead of just showing me properties, she sat down with me to discover the features I was looking for in my condo and then assembling a list of properties for me to see. She had my best interest in mind at all times during the process. I would recommend Kristy to anyone that I know who is looking to purchase or sell a condo or house because I know she would do her very best to help them get the home of their dreams. Thank you Kristy for making the process so easy.”
“I just wanted to send a separate thank you for taking us out yesterday. I know we already did thank you, but I just wanted to reiterate it. You have got to be sick of us by now, and I’m sad that the offers we have put in didn’t work out, but just wanted to express our gratitude to you. You have just been so awesome during this entire process I almost want to make a website kristybisthebest.com and post ads everywhere. ha!”

“Kristy took the time to understand our real goals of house selling – i.e price vs time on market. With her knowledge of marketing houses effectively, she then went through the house room by room and made suggestions on decor, re-arranging furniture, minor cosmetic work that should be done. All of which are factors on buyers when they walk the house. It was hard work getting through the list, but I have no doubt without this expertise the house would have been on the market for far longer. Kristy sold our house in 7 days in this economy. Says a lot.”
“We had been on a roller coaster trying to sell our house : we first tried to sell on our own, then went with a real estate agent who wasn’t really doing more than what we were doing – it had been 5 months of this. We talked to Kristy, and she was very optimistic that she could sell our house in a short period of time. And she was right, it took 5 days from the time she put the listing on MLS and we received an offer, and at asking price ! I highly recommend her !”
“I recommend Kristy Bonaventura as a realtor, especially for young, first-time homebuyers. Kristy had great resources available for me to learn the process of buying real estate, understand my budget, and answer all of my questions. Searching for a home for the first time is a very overwhelming experience, but Kristy was patient when I needed time to think and she was also right there onboard when I wanted to see several properties. Kristy is knowledgeable, conscientious, and uses the advancement in technology to her advantage. As a young client, I was able to easily communicate with Kristy via emails, texting, and even social networking sites while learning great tips from her blog. Her guidance was helpful and allowed me to make decisions myself. She responded to millions of questions thoroughly and efficiently. Even though I decided to not purchase at this time, Kristy has kept me informed through the entire process without patronizing me and has remained very attentive.”
“We just want to say ……thank you so much for everything!!! We love our new home! The kids love the space and there bedrooms and I love everything about it!!! Everyday I have to pinch myself to make sure is real!!! So I just want to you to know …we are here because of your help!!! Thank you!!!!”
“Kristy armed us with a lot of good advice and reading materials. She helped us sift through scores of listings, showing lots of patience; willingness to work around our schedule and ability to be prompt at answering our frantic calls. We got a great deal on our first home thanks to Kristy’s negotiations skills and we continue to use her help long after our home sale.”
Andrew Bennett & Andra Ivan
“Immediately after meeting Kristy, we knew she was the right agent for us. She was positively great. She understood our needs and concerns. She continually kept us posted day to day on new listings and was always available to answer our calls. We found our first home less than six weeks after meeting her in a fantastic neighborhood in Wakefield. We had a great first time home buying experience and Kristy really helped guide us through it.”
Jason and Irene Ellis
“Kristy has great expertise in the real estate market and more importantly she is results driven. She was able to execute our sale very quickly by providing valuable tips (creatively presenting our house) and candid feedback (explaining where to focus our efforts). Most notably, Kristy was very personable and professional throughout the entire process.”
“Kristy did a great job helping us find the right house for our family. She was very patient, as we struggled with our many options, and was a lot of help every step of the way. Although we were in the area during the shopping phase, we transacted much of the actual sale remotely, and Kristy never missed a beat.”
Ben and Jill Geslison
“Kristy is very organized, has an eye for detail, is marketing and technology-savvy, and delivers a high level of customer service to her clients. When we found a new house we wanted to buy, we needed to quickly sell our existing home. Kristy spent a lot of time with us on very short notice getting the house ready for buyers, taking photos, accenting its best features, helping us stage the property, etc. She organized a very successful and well attended open house that directly led to the offer we accepted. Kristy was always available by phone, email, or in person when needed. She was and has remained very attentive to us as customers. She brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our transactions. We recommend her real estate services to other people considering buying or selling a home.”
Lisa and Peter Colli
“Kristy isn’t afraid of hard-work and goes the extra mile to market properties for her clients – very creatively. Her background in marketing is a huge asset to her sellers as she produces amazing web commercials and knows how to add the extra “buzz” to a property to draw more attention by the way she positions it on the market and her property descriptions get notice. She understands the value of great photos and how to leverage that to the benefit of her client. She knows her market and can guide buyers to the great opportunities that are out there during these turbulent times. RE/MAX Heritage is proud of the way Kristy’s works for her clients.”
RE/MAX Heritage LLC

I admire how she sets goals for herself and excels to meet and surpass those goals. Her marketing proposals and presentations are creative and comprehensive covering everything a buyer or seller needs to know from real estate and financing in insurance and moving. Kristy’s success is a reflection of her hard work. I would highly recommend Kristy.”

She takes great pride in her work and is committed to fulfilling her client’s needs. Her positive attitude, willingness to listen and be honest, and friendliness led us to make the decision to retain her as our buyer’s agent.”

To Whom It May Concern:
It is with great pleasure that we write this letter to express our complete gratitude with the integrity and professionalism displayed by Kristy Bonaventura.
Our goal, when hiring Kristy was to sell our home and purchase a new and comparable home in a different town with a better school system. With five children and a home that was built specifically for our family and lifestyle, this was no easy task. Throughout the entire process Kristy was professional, conscientious, and motivated. We always felt as though we were her only client.
Initially we were uncertain of the asking price on our property, but Kristy diligently checked multiple sources to verify that our pricing was accurate and met my goal of selling the house within a certain timeframe. Consequently, she sold it at the first open house and for exactly what we wanted.
While helping us find our new home, she did not try to sell us every home we looked at, as some realtors do. We liked the way she let the home sell itself and never tried to push us into making an offer. We are grateful for her honesty and felt as though she was truly looking out for our best interests. We were particularly impressed when she presented our offer directly to the seller on our behalf.
We highly recommend Kristy’s services for anyone requiring assistance in buying or selling a home and would be delighted to answer any specific questions regarding her performance.
