Kris worked with my mother to sell her townhouse and with me to sell my condo. Both sales were somewhat difficult but Kris did an excellent job to get things worked out and both buyers and sellers were happy with the outcome. I would certainly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.
Prior condo owners in the Highlands
We have known Kris Simpson for several years, observing her selling properties in the Highlands for owners when they were ready to move on. We found Kris to be extremely honest, competent and always bending over backwards for her clients. We always said when it became time to sell, we would call Kris Simpson. Well, the time came. We called Kris and asked her to sell our condo and find us a home. She did both!!! She sold our condo in three days after it went on the market, and found us a home in the Woodburn Estates and Golf, Woodburn, Oregon. We highly recommend Kris Simpson. Kris will go beyond being your broker.
Kris did a fantastic Job for us. She was there for us the whole way. She is very professional and knew exactly what needed to be done in every situation. We were hard to please but she quickly figured out what we were looking for in a house and found us the perfect one. When we settled on a house she very carefully took care of all the details that needed to be done to make our way smooth and care free. We recommend her as the best.
Kris was recommended by many residents of the Highlands community. I met with her and was impressed by her knowledge of HOAs and local sales. Over months leading up to selling my mother's condo, Kris provided several useful references for repairs and services. When we were ready to sell, she was the obvious choice to list the condo.

Kris is smart and a very good communicator. She is flexible when needed and firm when needed. I recommend her services highly. You can trust her to work hard and get the job done.

We are so satisfied and pleased with our experience with Kris. We wanted to downsize and she quickly found us a home to buy and the sale went through easily.

We also chose her to market our large home. After discussing our home qualities, we put it on the market and had an offer in four days. Amazing!
She is the ultimate professional who knows her business thoroughly.

Communication is one of her strongest skill. Along with her meticulous follow up we always knew what was going on. She advised us many times on how to respond to demanding buyers. She was patient but always persevering in getting the best results for us.

We have and will continue to recommend her services to others who need a top notch real estate agent.

I 1st met Kris at an open house 2 years before my actual moved to Oregon. I was impressed as she took the time to give my daughter & I very detailed information about Washington Country locations & services even though she knew we were only window shopping. I contacted Kris when I was finally in the moving/purchasing stage; she did a stellar job with a very short time frame (less than a week) and quickly focused on what my needs where. Although she never gave any negative comments about any property she was able to help me focus on what might not meet my needs. I found my property in Hillsboro and absolutely adore where I live. I would recommend Kris to anyone looking for a professional that will do all she can to provide you with all the potential options. You cannot go wrong with Kris.
Kris was so much more then just a realtor for me, I had to sell my grandparents house of 23 years after they passed. There was so much to do and fix and I had I had no other family to help me. Kris was right there helping me find people to fix things, being there to let contractors in if I couldn't be there and just being a moral support person. She made the sale of my grandparents house go so smoothly and stress free! I can't thank her enough for everything she did. She even stage the house so nicely that the new owners asked if they could keep the curtains she had bought for the bedrooms! I will use her when I need to sell my house and I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell.

Kris Simpson, you are amazing!.
Thank You! so much for doing such a great job in getting both my Moms home and my rental house sold.
Your technique in staging both homes to look move in ready, just fantastic. You followed through with several open houses, checking back with various realtors regarding their comments as well as their clients. You then called me to let me know how things were going.
Thank you so much for including me in all the decisions rather than make me call you.
You even mowed the lawn yourself at the rental several times. What Realtor does that? You got necessary people to do repairs so that in the end the buyers got the benefit of practically new homes at a decent cost to me.

You were so optimistic, and relentless in getting things done. You always had a smile on your face which was what I needed to deal with the stress of losing my mom and I guess the typical family stuff.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I would happily recommend your services and you as a person to anyone needing a Realtor. Lynne Heyer
I first noticed a sign for Kris in my neighborhood. It was on another block within the Highlands in Tigard. I went to Open House to meet her. I knew then that she would represent me. I had a strategy for selling my home, but take many trips, so it would be months away. She didn't mind that I wanted to take my time and presented comps. It was especially difficult as I was away most the time, but she said no problem.
We had Open House in Nov and it sold in 2 weeks.
She also accommodated the buyers as they had to wait for the first of year to obtain funds. Another broker took care of them.
I went away for 3 weeks and returned to below freezing weather. The heater had to be on when no one was home and there was a danger the pipes would crack. Kris took care of the changes they wanted made. She called some guy out to fix window, bought monoxide detectors and I can't remember all she did.
When I returned I only needed to sign papers. I was back in town for less than 12 hrs and headed back to California.
Apparently the desk had been cleaned out and I set the most I important things in a desk drawer. These are items I can not live without, like a checkbook and computer log ins. She is sending them to me priority mail.
You couldn't ask for a better realtor.
