A little about me
and why I love real estate
Real estate has been a huge part of my life, for most of my life, and my passion is to serve others. I've worked in almost every aspect of the business including banking, title & escrow, transaction & team management and brokerage operations. My father owned a real estate franchise when I was young and was also a title company manager for many years before he retired. I spent a lot of time around those industries and listened to the stories, maybe surprisingly, it didn't inspire me then, to get into "the business".
Fast forward about 20 years, to where I started in real estate, switching gears from many years in retail banking & operations, to assist in my husband's real estate business, managing our growing sales team and helping to propel us to the top ranks of producing real estate agents in the world. This is when Jaret and I truly realized we were better when we were "In It Together".
During and after the financial crash in 2008, we knew there had to be a better way. A better way to help buyers & sellers, a better way to run a real estate business, a better way to build for our family's future. So, in 2009 we started our own independent forward-thinking brokerage that was tech-driven, and client relationship-focused. We were pioneers in the use of technology to provide a more efficient process for consumers, yet we never wavered in our belief that it was the connection to the human being, to the buyer and seller, that would be the difference between an average or an exceptional experience for them.
Today, our expertise, training & coaching, along with many years of practice in "everything real estate" have led us to understand the way to build a real estate business the right way. One that gives us the ability to help others achieve their dreams while continuing to allow us to live ours. We are partnered with a growing global network of top producing agents, industry icons, mega teams, and the best coaches, trainers and mentors in the world.
Our new mission is to link arms with others that want to benefit from our experience, personal coaching and mentoring. Our goal is to help others live the life they dream of, by sharing our successes and failures, motivating and inspiring, and sharing our story of life together in what we believe, is one of the most rewarding careers in the world when you're surrounded with the right people.
Our clients are awesome
and here is what they are saying
“The Ghent Team has helped us buy and sell 3 times during this crazy housing market. Each time, they had a strategy that worked and got us the home we wanted and for the one we sold, the price we wanted. Negotiating and the strategies they used were proven with our results. They were quick to answer questions and jump on something when needed. We really felt we were in good hands with them. They're an entire team and they all work seamlessly together. Just fantastic.”
“We had a very smooth transaction thanks to their help. They were not our agent, nor did they represent us, which required us to make a leap of faith, and trust this agent who was selected by the other side of the transaction. They proved worthy of our trust, in fact exceeding my "stretch" expectations. It was refreshing to work with the Ghent Team.”
“I can’t say enough how amazing Kristi Ghent and her team made the sale of my home seem so effortless. All my questions were always answered immediately and I couldn’t be happier. If you are looking for great customer service I recommend using the Ghent Team. They are the only real estate people I will ever use!”
“The Ghent Team are extremely knowledgeable and communicative. Their professionalism, knowledge and attentiveness is unsurpassed . I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. They will go the extra mile and deliver beyond your expectations!”
“Their attention to detail and professionalism was exceptional. They explained the process completely in terms we understood and were readily available to answer questions. They made a typically high stress situation painless. They walked us through step by step displaying confidence and in turn eased our concerns. The team accomplished what we never thought was possible and we are forever grateful. We highly recommend the Ghent Team!”
