Kristen is very good at her chosen profession. She was both professional and very personable. She went far beyond my expectations on multiple occasions. I feel like I've made my first friend on the island. I can't wait to finish the remodel/refresh I am working on so I can move in and start living the Island Life! Thank you so much Kris!
In 33 years of marriage and many buys and sells, Kris is the best realtor we have ever had. She took care of so many details (and big picture) for us from day one. We bought a house using her as buyers' agent, then used her services as sellers' agent. She has become a true friend; however, having said that, she has always been professional and knowledgeable.
Kris was fantastic throughout the process! She listened to the type of home that we were looking for; she showed us a variety of great properties that had everything that we were looking for in a home; she helped us to think through how best to structure our offer; and (most importantly) she handled all of the necessary details to make sure that our home closing happened on time. Kris was extremely responsive, helpful and knowledgeable!! We strongly endorse Kris.

Kristin was awesome from start to finish! Her personal attention and above and beyond assistance was greatly appreciated as we lived out of town. She is knowledgeable, professional, and very easy to work with- highly recommend her!
Kristen has been a God sent. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Showed us a house and sold our in no time. On time and follows through with what she says. She will always be a friend of ours. She will be hanging all of our future buys. Thank you so much Kristen. We are truly blessed to have met you.
Kris was absolutely great to work with. She is very well versed in the local real estate market. She was so helpful every step of the way in purchasing our home.
Kris worked with us for about a year to find a home - she must have shown us dozens of houses. She understood our goals and helped us identify and purchase the right home for us. She guided us through the negotiation process and helped us locate the right inspection company, mortgage company and closing attorney. She was always responsive to our many questions, both by email and text.
Kristin is an amazing person, Realtor, neighbor and now friend. I would absolutely recommend her to guide anyone through the process of purchasing a home. She is dedicated to the pursuit of finding your dream home with all the ups and downs. She is proactive, supportive and knowledgeable on so many levels. Thank you Kristin for your dedication to us!
We could not be more thrilled with the service Kris provided! She responded quickly to questions, worked with our schedule (we were coming from 3 hours away), and helped us find the perfect beach house. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. You want to work with her!
Kristin Aroner is truly amazing not only in her position but also as a person. She is a true professional and a master at her gift. She has walked every step with me throughout my home buying journey. I asked many questions over and over and not once did she make me feel that I was asking too many. She explains everything in detail and gathers much needed information. Kristen keeps you in the loop and will fight for you and your family in every aspect of real estate. She is quick to respond to messages, texts and emails even after hours and weekends. It was a true joy working with Kristin, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you for everything Kristin!
I highly recommend Kristin. She is very attentive to a buyers needs and wishes. She made the entire process seamless and anytime I needed anything she was always right there to help. I would use her again with no hesitation at all!!!!!
Kristin was extremely helpful throughout my process for purchasing a house on oak island. Because I has limited availability during the weekdays, she made a number of follow up visits to my targeted property, and fully researched any items of concern, including contacting local providers for estimates. I felt very comfortable knowing she was very familiar with the community, as she is a year round resident, answering any questions I had during the process, and arranging everything for closing to make it as seamless as possible for me. Even subsequent to closing she has maintained contact to ensure that everything was ok with house and that I was aware of any local goings on.
Excellent process, Kris was with us every step of the way. She didn’t skip a beat and had our best interest. She is knowledgeable, caring, compassionate and it’s very apparent she loves what she does. Thank you Kris
I've never done a review like this. It's always been about the food and service at restaurant I had patroned or the personal interactions and fun factor at an entertainment facility. Buying a home is something much deeper and more important. At the very core of it, I'm leaving a review on a person who helped me make one of the most important decisions I've made in my life. I suppose I'll lead it off with this: Kristin made the entire process streamlined, comfortable, and easy. Let's get started.
When I first came across the house that I'm now comfortably situated in, writing this review, I was entirely convinced there was no way I could acquire it. But it had a few things going for it that enticed me into trying anyway. It was close to my job, the neighborhood seemed quiet, and most importantly, it seemed a house that just might fall in to my price range. That being said, I had no intentions of getting my hopes up. I had very little knowledge in the way of buying a home or land. There's mortgages, inspections, escrow(up until I met Kristin I believed that was a fancy, made up buzzword that had no real meaning) and I'd have to be crazy to think I could get myself through such a convoluted process, right? Wrong.
Kristin helped me every step of the way. She coached me through every part of the process and answered her phone any time of day I called with any silly questions I had. She pointed me in the direction of a mortgage broker(who also provided fantastic service), she worked with me on the price of the home, she neatly broke down and laid out every bit of paperwork I had to sign, and perhaps the best part for me was how she worked around my schedule. I was worried working 60+ hours a week would hinder my likelihood of finalizing and closing. She expressed understanding of my situation and made sure to help me whichever way she could. Now, I know what some of you may think. She's a realtor. It's her job to make the sale. She only gets paid if I shell out myself. Well, even weeks after the house is sold and she made her commission, she's been staying in contact and asking questions about the house and how it's working out for me. Shortly after I moved in, I realized my toilet wasn't working correctly. The float assembly needed to be replaced, it leaked from the wax seal, and had a 50/50 shot doing what a toilet is intended to do. I'm sure you get the point. Kristin had upgraded my homeowners insurance to max coverage upon closing, which was something to chose to do herself at no extra cost to me. That's fantastic. That's above and beyond. She's done her part, right? Something terrible and personal came up in my life shortly after making the purchase, and I was short on expendable cash. When I explained that to Kristin and told her I didn't have the money to spend on the deductible to replace the toilet, she paid to have someone come out and replace it for me. This woman who had already finished her job and made her cut cared enough to check on me and make sure I was taken care of. That truly is above and beyond. Thank you so much for everything you've done. I will make sure to recommend you to any and everyone needing Realtor services in the future. To whomever is reading this review, I promise you need to look no further. The perfect realtor is right here! Best of luck future buyers!
If you want an agent that’s up front and honest, and always responds quickly to messages, Kris is the best!! I met her to check out a piece of property, (that didn’t work out) and she was so realistic, nice, caring, and down to earth, I just HAD to hire her to help me find a new house for me and my son. She really goes to bat for her people, doing everything she can to get you the perfect house at the perfect price. I also hired her to sell my old house as I don’t have a lot of time for showings, etc (single working mom) and had a showing a few hours after it hit the market AND finally sold it for more than I even thought it was worth! She was always there to answer texts, calls, and emails (even late at night) and made the entire process bearable. She goes above and beyond for her clients and I can’t thank her enough for my new, beautiful home. My son now has a yard to play in and we’re so happy!
Kristen was very professional with us, all related parties and agencies.
She was our spokesperson, negotiator, and most importantly our friend. She was highly instrumental in helping us acquire our home. If it were not for her motivation and skill the buy may not have happened. Above and beyond what was required of her.
Ms. Kristin was very helpful in our search. She listened to what we were looking for in the area we were looking for. She was very patient with us as we had several questions along the way. Thanks to her, we now have our dream home. Thank you very much.
Kristin goes above and beyond. We couldn't ask for a better agent. It was my first time purchasing a home. She was more like a friend to me. I felt so comfortable in every decision we made. I would recommend her to anyone making a home purchase. She is awesome!
Extremely helpful every step of the way. Definitely goes above and beyond what is expected. Kept me advised of what was happening at all times. Went out to the house on several occasions to make sure details were being taken care of.
Kristin was very professional and personable. From the beginning, she helped us navigate the entire selling process. From pricing, staging, open houses, interacting with prospective buyers, keeping us informed of status, Kristin remained professional, patient and positive.
Kristin went over and beyond to find what we were looking for! We were originally looking for a house on a double lot or large enough to store our boat. Kristin researched and gave us many options. She worked around our business schedule and travel time time (4 hrs.). Kristin was very open to our pros and cons regarding to the properties we viewed. She was extremely honest and to the point on what we should offer on properties we were interested in.
It was a pleasure working with Kristin in the purchase of our first beach house. She was always on top of the tasks for a smooth purchase. She kept us informed and he local knowledge of suppliers saved us tons of time. We are looking forward to working with Chris for our next purchase.
Being first time home buyers Kristin helped is into the perfect home we were looking for. She devoted a lot of time and effort into finding us the right place.
Kris was awesome as our realtor! From start to finish of our new construction home she was an outstanding advocate for us. She was always prompt, quick to respond, and professional in our dealings. If you are looking to locate in the Oak Island, Brunswick County area of NC, we highly recommend Kristin Aroner to you without hesitation! Bill Griffin
Kristin was amazing! She helped us find the place we’ve been dreaming of. The entire process was stress free and felt so easy. Kristin was quick to respond to all of our calls and emails. We never had to wait long for the answers to our questions and if she didn’t have the answer she went out of her way to get the information we needed. Kristin was great with our kids too! They just loved her. She really went above and beyond! We rate her above 5 stars!
Kristin was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and provided excellent support when there were conflicts with my schedule. She guided me through the process and answered any questions I had along the way.
Our house just closed today! Kristen was a dream agent. She is a go getter who worked effortlessly to get our house sold for a great price. She was on top of things and her communication was excellent. I would recommend her to anyone.
I am in the process of deciding where I want to retire and Kristin has shown me a wide variety of homes on Oak Island and in Southport. Her knowledge of the area, her research in previewing properties and getting all my questions answered has been extremely valuable in my search. When I decide on my new home I will be calling on Kristin to help me through the entire home buying process. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
We worked with Kristin (Kris) on a recent purchase in Holden Beach. While the purchase was a challenging one (due to sellers), Kris was a pleasure to have represent our needs. Responsive, organized and a very friendly and genuine person to work with throughout the entire process. From previewing each of the homes, initial showings, immediate responses to questions and negotiations through post-sale personal touches we couldn't have been more satisfied with our experience. Highly recommended.
We met Kristin at an Open House and although we did not buy that home we did hire Kristin to list our home on Oak Island. She was very professional, knowledgeable and her marketing materials were very well done. She gave us great advice on every aspect of the process and kept us well informed along the way. We were under contract in 2 days !!
We have already recommended her to several friends and family members.
Kristin was the best realtor we have ever had. She is honest, informative, give excellent customer, dependable, gave constant updates. She helped us manage through a difficult time due to us trying to go through the steps/process for purchasing our home and having a bad experience with our mortgage company ( Veteran's loan). Because of Kristin, we were able to make it through the horrible interactions with our mortgage company and were able to finally close on our new home in Southport. Kristin is truly a Special person. Kristin will always be special to me. I have shared my wonderful experience with her to. Many people and will continue to share. I recommend Kristin to anyone who wants to have a Wonderful experience finding your new home.
Kristin was very responsive and knowledgeable. We were working with very tight timelines. She communicated very well and was very informative. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Outstanding in every way, if it wasn’t for her persistence, diligence and encouragement we wouldn’t have been able to purchase our new home. She went above and beyond to assist us in getting our loan and the house we wanted. Best realtor we have ever worked with and would highly recommend her to others.
We first entertained the idea of buying a home a few months before meeting Kristen Aroner. We had a realtor at the time that my mom had previously used but she just wasn’t listening to what we wanted or needed for our large family. My husband and I are both law enforcement officers and needed a safe place for our children as we both know all to well the rough areas of the county. I meet Kristen by chance while on patrol in the City I work. Evan though she knew I already had been speaking with a realtor she didn’t hesitate to answer my questions. After a few weeks I asked her to be our realtor and help us in our journey to find a home. My husband and I had no clue how the process worked. Kristen always answered every question day or night no matter how silly it was. After we settled on a builder she stayed with us every step of the way. We were completely unsatisfied with the builder after a few months in. As both our jobs are hectic and I mostly work the night shift Kristen stepped in and became our voice. She stayed on top of the contractor as if it was her house being built. She made sure we were satisfied with everything. She became our eyes and ears. We would have given up months ago if it wasn’t for her. Now we have a beautiful home and couldn’t be happier. Even after moving in Kristin still checks up on us and answers any questions we have. It was a long process due to the company that built our home constantly losing help and hiring inexperienced contractors. But through it all I’m glad to say not only did we get lucky with having Kristen as our realtor but now as a friend we can trust and would recommend to anyone as we have to many.
Kristen was AMAZING! She kept the builder on its toes, while reassuring my wife and I that we were going to love this house. I cannot say enough about how Kristen just took care of us like we were family, checking in almost hourly to make sure we didn’t have any questions or problems during our build. Kristen Aroner, you are the BEST!
Kris was very accomodating to show us properties of interest and had great knowledge about the market on the island. I wouid unequivocally recommend her.
My husband and I recently purchased a home in Holden Beach, NC. Kristin was our realtor, and we could not have asked for anyone better! She previewed all of the homes we were interested in before we arrived, and she included several homes that were not on our list--and one of those is now our second home! She was super responsive and knowledgeable and anticipated our many questions with helpful suggestions. We would highly recommend her as a realtor to anyone in the area!
If you like the comfort of knowing your entire experience from walk thru's to purchasing the house is handled by a very professional realtor, then Kristin Aroner is the real deal. Even after the purchase she continues to be a valuable information resource for the area.
Ex: she was available to call/text evening hours and day time. She handled many question about the house details and area.
Kris was very helpful, genuine and kind. She knows the area well and did a fabulous job helping us narrow our search. Kris kept us fully informed throughout the entire process, and she is a wonderful realtor.
My husband and I decided to make a move from Arizona to coastal North Carolina.As it would happen a good friend recommended Kristin who was in town for the holidays.We quickly found a property that we were interested in and Kristin provided with all the information and we decided to put an offer on it.She got the paperwork done overnight and we submitted the offer the next day.Kristin was very knowledgeable and thorough we would highly recommend her!
We met Kristin looking at a new home community in Southport, NC where she was handling the model views. When we advised we were really focused on Oak Island, she jumped at the chance to show us the island and homes on the market there. She spent over a half day with us that day on the island. Since then we locked her in as a representative and she has been nothing but superior. She is very, very responsive to any inquiries we may have and truly demonstrates that she really cares for our future and what home we want. Through her we found a home to build and are giddy about what our future will bring on Oak Island.
She was very active and fast with all needs. Worked with my busy schedule to make sure I was able to see and view every house possible. She made a point to have all important information available for viewing as needed.
My wife met Kristin at an open house in Southport, NC. The very next day Kristin drove my wife all over Oak Island, NC to look for a possible retirement home for us. She knows the area very well and spent lots of time showing what was available that fit the wish list my wife had. That very day my wife knew without doubt she found our new home. We just closed on that new home two days ago.
Kristen was superb in guiding us through the process and answering our questions pronto even though we were 4 hours away. She made it easy. Closing was fast and easy too. We are proud homeowners on Oak Island NC and will be permanent residents there. We very highly recommend Kristin. She is a professional.
Kris has been extremely helpful and willing to do whatever was asked of her. She made the time to take us around to look at the homes offered and new ones on the marker. We would highly recommend Kris!
Kristin (Kris) was exceptional! I was most impressed with her responsiveness which was critical in my negotiations because the purchase of my lot depended on that. She was professional at all times and understanding of my needs. She negotiated the sale perfectly and was always available when I contacted her (this is very important to me as time is of the essence). She also offered great suggestions for other services which I really relied on. I was very very impressed. Good work Kris!
