Byron and Laura
After 20 years, Byron and Laura were looking to move their family of five out of their starter home in Manchester. Their home had been extensively renovated, but they felt that it had reached it's full potential. Their most important criteria for a new home were quiet, privacy, more room for entertaining, and a large lot for expansion potential as their family continues to grow. Not only did Kristin sell their old property within a week, and for much more than the asking price, she got them into a new home that had everything they were looking for, plus a fabulous view.

My husband and I were extremely grateful to have Kristin Francoeur as our realtor for the sale of our home in Ipswich, MA. I called her office for information and after speaking to Kristin: I was more than prepared to have her list our home. Not only was she our “cheerleader” while we prepared our house for listing, she also introduced us to painters, stagers and plumbers that she knew and trusted. She did an outstanding job preparing a virtual tour and marketing our home. She presented a positive and persistent attitude making us feel confident with our decision to list our home with her. Kristin always puts forth tremendous hard work and dedication showing our home multiple times and even going above and beyond for the buyers. Kristin is a kind and trusting realtor who makes it feel like you are working with a good friend. We are thankful for her hours of dedication and persistence which ultimately led to the sale of our house. Kristin worked to be sure we were happy in our new home as well. She went above and beyond to be sure we had the perfect place. She knew what we were looking for and searched until we found it!

Our family had the pleasure of working with Kristin Francoeur during the purchase of our historic home. From the moment I placed the initial call and spoke to her and expressed interest in the property, I just had a sense of what a terrific realtor Kristin would be and that she would go above and beyond in all areas. And boy did she!! The market was not ideal for selling our house and the negations, at times, were difficult, but Kristin got us through it all. And then she found the most wonderful nanny for our family to complete the picture. I don’t see us moving given how much we are enjoying the house as a family, but if we did, I can’t imagine using any realtor other than Kristin. Thank you, Kristin.

I am writing to express my upmost appreciation and admiration for Kristin Francoeur as a Real Estate Advisor. As a fellow resident of Manchester By The Sea, I was already well aware of Kristin’s solid reputation as a realtor that delivered superior service and results as a residential agent. My needs were slightly different as the Co-Founder of a business that was experiencing rapid growth that required an expanded commercial footprint. Despite the variation in the requirements between the residential and commercial models, I presented Kristin with my future state vision for my firm including our budget, square footage requirements and other amenities that were a must have for my firm. Kristin immediately launched an exhaustive search for commercial properties that aligned with the above criteria spending countless hours filtering through the many listings available. Kristin was able to synthesize these opportunities and rank them allowing me to focus on running my business. Once Kristin identified the ideal property that met my firms’ requirements, she immediately drew upon her superior valuation skills – analyzing the critical comparative market data to arrive at a compelling offering price and negotiated aggressively with the seller to get us our price and terms. All through the transaction Kristin contributed incremental service above and beyond the transaction including referrals to contractors to customize the property to our needs, and other ancillary contributions that made this experience superior to anything I’ve ever experienced before. It is therefore without hesitation that I whole heartedly recommend Kristin Francoeur to assist you with your real future estate transaction.

Kristin helped us to sell our home in just about a week's time from the date it was listed. She is honest and realistic in her approach to listing a home, and is fast-paced and efficient in getting things done. Kristin is extremely responsive and accessible to answer questions and brainstorm ideas, and she provides frequent updates on the status of market trends, buyer's feedback, etc. She is well-respected by her peers in the north shore real estate market, and has a great pause on what's going on. Most importantly, she is kind, upbeat, professional and has a great attitude. I recommend Kristin to anyone looking to sell their home, she will get it done right.

Jeanne and I wanted to thank you and your team for all your help in the process of buying our home in Gloucester. The house is
everything and more that we hoped it would be. We look forward to many wonderful and exciting years living on the coast. Working with our attorney, Shelley Delaney, was easy and straightforward. No complications. She was very helpful and timely with good advice.
The folks at Cross Country Mortgage represented by Richard and
Kevin Potter were so easy and reassuring to work with. They helped us navigate the required paperwork by answering any and all questions quickly and simply. All our phone calls were answered. We can’t forget Candace Bonfiglio who did an excellent job of helping with all the forms and required information. She was more than helpful.Attorney Amy Scopa was also very thorough, quick, and professional at the closing. She could not have made it go any smoother.
Again Kristin, you got us to the right people and answered our
questions honestly and fully. We could not be happier with the
process and of course the end result. We thank your team, and
especially you for your guidance, care and professionalism throughout the process.

Kristin is sharp, reliable, and relentless! Whether on the buying side or the selling side, she always helps her clients get the most for their money. She worked fast and furiously, we got offers the instant the house was a on the market and sold $50,000 over the asking price. Kristin did a great job researching the market, and promoted our house every way possible. She sold our house so quickly, that we hadn’t even decided where we were going to move to. She was instrumental to that process as well, helping us see value in a unique property that had been sitting on the market. As if $50k over asking wasn’t enough, Kristin helped negotiate our new home down another $45k! Our new home is a dream come true, and we owe it to Kristin! We wholeheartedly recommend her as having used her and her team for both sides of our big move into our dream home.

STUNNING GAMBREL - MANCHESTER, MA
We are a military family residing in CA. We owned a lovely home in Manchester, Ma. After making the difficult decision to stay here in CA, the next difficult decision was finding someone we could trust from the other side of the country to sell our home. Kristin went above and beyond what any real estate advisor has ever done or is expected to do. She helped us get our home ready to go on the market within 15 days and our house had an offer within hours of going on the market.
She coordinated everything from painting, landscaping, meeting the oil company, water company and putting us in touch with lawyers to help us close the deal. She was professional, extremely responsive, patient and encouraging. She kept us informed every step of the way and persisted to get our closing 5 days earlier than planned.
Kristin helped to make what seemed impossible become a reality for us! We would highly recommend Kristin to anyone looking to sell their home. She is amazing!!!

From the moment I met Kristin I had an immediate sense of comfort that I was in the hands of a real estate expert. Her knowledge of the North Shore market, and valuation expertise led to seamless transactions on both the buy and sell side of my deals. I would highly recommend Kristin for all of your real estate needs on the North Shore.

Kristin did a wonderful job selling our house. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and she ended up getting us our asking price in fairly short order. This was an emotional journey as we'd spent twenty wonderful years in the house but Kristin certainly made it work exceptionally well for us.
