Broker & Co-Owner of RE/MAX of Cherry Creek — Abell to Sell Team
As a broker, REALTOR® and co-owner of RE/MAX of Cherry Creek, I am dedicated to providing the absolute finest service and expertise possible. My clients have helped me earn the 5280 Five Star Professional award, granted only to the top 7% of all Denver agents, for five consecutive years. I am devoted to helping my buyers find the home of their dreams and do what is needed to get their offer accepted. Furthermore, I am committed to helping my sellers make top dollar on their homes. I adhere to these promises by: keeping up with the latest marketing techniques, following current and sold inventory, using multiple offer management, strategic pricing, timing, and much more. With the support of my experienced team members, I am able to build each and every one of my clients a customized plan for buying and selling their home.
Customer satisfaction is the driving force behind everything I do! Here are a few examples of what my clients had to say about their experiences with me!
“Kristen was incredible! We started looking for a new house once our family had grown larger. Kristen listened carefully to our opinions and expectations. She was able to set search criteria that best fit our family. When we were reviewing houses, Kristen offered extremely helpful feed back. It was a challenging market, but Kristen stayed patient with us and helped us find the perfect house!” – Priscilla Smith, bought a home in Golden, CO for $525k
“It is always a pleasure to work with Kristen. Her knowledge of the Denver sellers’ market allowed us to be strategic in selling our home for top dollar within one weekend. In addition, she and her team guided us through every step of the closing with detailed information. We truly could not have done it without her and her team.” – Simmy and Matt Kelley sold a home in Wellshire, Denver, CO for $389K
“We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Kristen Abell. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. After meeting with Kristen we knew instantly that she was the one for us. She is honest and hands-on which really helped take the pressure off of us. We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the “one” and ended up in a bidding war, Kristen walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a cover letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. It was an unconventional approach but it worked and we thank Kristen for that every day! We have several friends looking for homes and we always recommend Kristen to them!” – Ryan and Kelsey bought a home in Arvada, CO for $375k
After growing up in Oklahoma and graduating from the University of Kansas, I joined the RE/MAX of Cherry Creek office in 2010 as a broker. Today, I am proud to be a co-owner of a truly admirable Denver Real Estate institution. Since 1981, RE/MAX of Cherry Creek has spent years welcoming families into homes and opening doors to new beginnings. Our office is one of the top-producing real estate offices in metro Denver for more than 34 years. In 2012 we were awarded the Top Selling Real Estate Office here in Denver, by the Real Estate Association of Colorado.
I am truly grateful to call the Mile High City my home. I love the fact that I don’t need to go far to ski and explore this wonderful state. Other than enjoying the Wash Park neighborhood with my family, I spend a lot of my free time working on making a difference in our community. After dedicating six years of my time, I am now a sustaining member of the Junior League of Denver, as I find it important to support women and children in our community and advise young leaders. I am also active in Compassion International, Bible Study Fellowship, and Greenwood Community Church. In addition, because RE/MAX International has built such an incredible partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, I am able to donate a portion of my commissions from every real estate transaction to this special cause. It’s an exciting time to be buying or selling real estate in Denver, and I would be thrilled to guide you along the way!

Broker/Team Member — Abell to Sell Team
It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to be a member of the “Abell to Sell Team.” I was raised in a real estate family (my dad and brother are home builders and my mom is a realtor), and I have watched and waited for the right opportunity to enter the Denver residential real estate industry. When Kristen approached me about working with her team, I was excited and knew the timing was right. My friendly outgoing personality, negotiating experience and knowledge of Denver neighborhoods will allow me to immediately contribute to the ongoing success of the “Abell to Sell Team.” Kristen has established an amazing reputation during her seven years of serving clients and building relationships in the Denver market, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team’s bright future. We share the common desire to always put our clients first, and make their buying or selling experience a pleasurable one. I look forward to building on her success, and helping clients find the perfect home in the right neighborhood. If you’re looking to buy or sell in the Denver area please give us a call we’d love to assist you. Here are few testimonials from my clients.
“From the moment we found the neighborhood we wanted to live in, Sarah & Kristen worked so hard to get our offer accepted. They pulled every string possible until finally we found our perfect first home! We loved working with them from the beginning all the way up to the very last day of closing. The entire process was seamless and organized which helped ease our nerves since it is our first home. It was all around a really great experience and we thank them so much for getting us to the end!!!” – Karla and Travis
“I could not have asked for a better agent than Sarah. She was incredible and helped my husband and I find the perfect home. Being a first time buyer and new to Denver I was nervous about the entire buying process. Sarah was there for me every step of the way. She provided me with all the information I needed, answered all of my questions (which I had many of), and helped me through every step. Sarah was knowledgeable about the market, and helped us find a home in our dream location. I don’t think I could have done this without her. I would highly recommend Sarah, she’s extremely knowledgeable, professional, but most importantly it felt like we had a close friend negotiating the best possible deal for us. She knew exactly how to handle every situation, while also managing my anxious nerves! Thank you so much for everything you did for us, we could not be happier with our new home.”
“Buying a house can always be stressful, especially when you are new to the area and houses are only staying on the market for a few days. Kristen and Sarah were wonderful to work with because they made sure we had all of the information we needed to make a decision. It was also really good hearing their personal opinions on what neighborhoods are up and coming and where we should focus our search. I would highly recommend them to anyone.” -Eric and Ali
“A difficult buyer’s market with minimal inventory and extremely high demand truly distinguishes the highest quality realtors with significant industry and environmental knowledge from those who are simply building their resume. I can say with the utmost confidence that Kristen and Sarah both reflect the talent and enthusiasm required in some of the harshest climates. Finding an incredible home 2 miles from downtown in our price range, and with an extra bedroom is unheard of. There will be no question of who to work with when I turn back to the real estate market for moves, new purchases, or investment opportunities. There is a serious wealth of knowledge to tap into with this group.” -Greg

Stager — Abell to Sell Team

Staging, or styling a home, is a crucial piece of the real estate puzzle and Amanda enjoys aiding Kristen’s clients through this often daunting process. Staged homes sell faster and you will receive a greater return on your investment for simply making potential buyers feel at home and guiding their eye to the architectural highlights within the space.
