"Working with Krista to sell our waterfront home was a pleasure from beginning to end. She was professional, responsive and lovely to work with. We especially appreciated her attention to detail.

"Krista is extremely patient and always looks out for her clients. We never feel nervous or pressured with her and feel our best interests are always being considered. She is honest and really has a "feel" for what we're looking for (even though we weren't sure ourselves in the beginning)! She is very accommodating too. Highly recommend her (and have referred friends and colleagues to her in the past)"

"Krista was highly invested in finding a house that would fit our needs and tastes and that would also be a robust investment. She made a point of understanding us.  She is attentive and responsive. Very sharp. Compendious knowledge of Barrie and the market. Well networked. Does her research. Is careful about detail. Has high professional standards. Is a straight shooter.  We have dealt with quite a number of agents in Canada and the U.S. over the years in a variety of circumstances and without question, Krista is head and shoulders above the rest!"

"Krista, just a note to say thanks for all the hard work and commitment to finding Adam a fabulous place to live, Not only did you stay within our price range, you assured that there were better deals to be had when we lost our chance on the Innisfil Street property. Thanks for staying within our budget, thanks for continuing to search out good deals, and thanks for your professionalism in presenting the offer and getting the deal done. You are a joy to work with. I'll let you know when we are looking for a place for Zach or if anyone else needs a good agent. "

"It has been months and months. I've been meaning to write you, but since it was Thanksgiving season I figure this is the next best time. I so appreciate all the work you did in marketing my mothers property, finding a buyer and making the sale when you did. Although it was hard to say goodbye to the place with all the memories there, but it had to be done. I also know that the worry and stress of maintaining the house and gardens over the summer would have been the end of me. I know I am in much better state now than I would of been if the place was still on the market. You have my heartfelt thanks and gratitude, Krista, for all your efforts. It really was a pleasure getting to know you. I really admire your business sense and drive, and hope that your business continues to thrive. I think of you, your mom and Laurie often and hope you are all doing well."

Not being familiar with "cottage life" she was incredibely helpful in every aspect and was so patient and helpful with all our questions, no matter how trivial. We look forward to a continued friendship. Thanks again Krista"

"Just a little note to say thanks for all the time you spent with us trying to find the perfect home. It got a little stressful at times, but you always managed to reassure us. Melissa always asks when “Krista” is coming for a visit. I think she has a concert all lined up for you. I would also like to thank you for the dinner at East Side Marios, it was great. Anytime you are in the neighbourhood make sure you stop in."

"Krista understood our needs, budget, each neighbourhood, house values, anything we asked about, she either had a ready answer or followed up later. Krista’s service was comprehensive, so it was all impressive. She was responsive, knowledgeable, efficient, and very pleasant to deal with. Krista was the perfect combination of efficiency, honesty, and friendliness. Above all, she was the consummate professional and we would not hesitate to use her services in the future or recommend her to others."

"Words cannot express our sincere gratitude for your time, commitment and patience in helping us to purchase and establish ourselves in our new home. Your generous gifts (we had a delicious dinner and the wreath hangs proudly in our entrance way) are very much appreciated and unexpected. We are working extremely hard to make this home our own. We’ve done painting, spent hours cleaning and unpacked everything that we used in our previous home. We’re having work done by an electrician over the next few weeks. We love the house and the yard; so everything we do in terms of decorating, upgrading and improvements will be well worth it. Thank you, again. We’re looking forward to working with you in the future should our needs change. In the meantime, we’ll be singing your praises and making referrals on your behalf to our friends and family. God bless you, Krista"

"The way she has handled my house transactions in the past are first class which makes dealing with her a pleasure. Krista gave me more than enough information and as always was extremely helpful. I couldn’t ask of better service. She is exceptional. Krista Alkerton was incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable and always offered sound advice. I think the level of service Krista offers is second to none. I move quite often and I am very fussy. Krista consistently demonstrates great patience and great professionalism with me. I would recommend anybody I know to give Krista a call as I know from the way this transaction and all my previous transactions have been handled that Krista Alkerton and Royal LePage are an awesome combination. Krista represents Royal LePage exceptionally well and with class."

"Right from the first property Krista showed us, we felt comfortable and knew that she had our best interest at heart. We had come from Mississauga and no matter when we could make the trip north, Krista was there for us. We had some anxious feelings, this being the purchase of our first home, but through Krista’s professionalism, great advice, contacts, and her terrific personality, she put us at ease and made this experience a great one!"
