Homeownership is a great investment tool for your future. Whether you have grown out of your current space, want to move to a new neighborhood, want to downsize, are being transferred, or you just want a new space, it is important to us to fully understand your motivations and goals for selling your current property. This will enable us to be able to better assist you in understanding how your property works as an investment tool, and how to “play the game” of home ownership.
Our goal in serving our seller client(s) is to obtain the highest dollar amount for your property in the shortest time. We aim to ensure that our client’s financial investment is protected within the constraints of the current market.
Finally our construction background allows our team to offer all our clients a confidential market action plan that helps the homeowner move up the "comp ladder".
We are so excited that you are taking the first step to learning more about how we can help you with purchasing your home, whether its your first place or next place. We believe strongly that one of the best investments you can make in your financial future is through home ownership. As a home buyer, this is the BIGGEST purchase you most likely will make in your lifetime. And as homeowners ourselves, we empathize with how daunting an experience this can be, but by placing your trust in us we will guide you throughout the process. We will share with you how real estate can work as an investment for your future. We will help you become educated consumers. We will always put your best interest first and foremost. When working with buyer clients, our goal is to help you feel confident you made the right decision in the property you purchased, that we protected your hard earned money to the best of our ability and ultimately that you feel empowered.
We can help you renovate before selling or turn the home you can afford into your dream home.

About Kevin Richards
For 17 plus years I have perfected my craft of home building and leveraged it into the superior home building and remodeling business of KR Construction many have grown to trust for their dream projects.
My name is Kevin Richards and my passion for building grew into my profession. I understand that my value is greater since I learned EVERY ASPECT of the home building trades. So I devour information about plumbing, electrical, heating/cooling, interior and exterior design, kitchen and bathroom creation, and outside living spaces. I am a Class A VA. General Contractor and know what is required to build with superior quality.
In addition, I have surrounded myself with a workforce and a network of skilled subcontractors who are obsessed with attention to detail and creating a jobsite where you can be at peace knowing that your project will be completed on time, within budget, and in a way that surpasses your dreams. I’ve taken all my construction knowledge and passion and now have combined it with a passion for Real Estate as well. Together these items really go hand in hand and make me vastly different than the average Realtor on your street!
What sets me apart:
◆ IMPECCABLE REFERENCES – Check me out! We will both be glad you did!
◆ A WORKFORCE AND SUBCONTRACTORS who respect me and are as committed to the superiority of every project as I am.
◆ EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION SKILLS- you need to know that as the supervisor on every job or as your Realtor, I have listened carefully to all your desires and that your vision has been clearly communicated to both myself and our entire team.
◆ AN EYE FOR DESIGN AND QUALITY WORK. "Good enough” is the enemy of excellence and I strive for excellence in everything I am associated with.
If you are looking for this type of Realtor either as a connection or as your home improvement contractor, LET’S CONNECT!
About Lisa Alonso
I began my training in real estate eleven years ago at Keller Williams Realty because their training is top notch, progressive and continous thus allowing me to provide the best resources, skills and support that my clients enjoy when buying and selling a home. I have had 100% satisfaction with my clients with my greatest asset being my attention to detail. I am currently a top producing agent on a top producing team with Preferred Realty Partners and enjoy all of the extraordinary systems and marketing tools that we provide to our clients. Having a professional photographer, amazing virtual tours and a professional stager are some of the tools we use to help our clients shine above the rest. The details make a difference.
I am also certified as a CHRE (Certified Home Rescue Expert) which is a necessary tool in todays market. Years ago I worked as a registered nurse and continue to find great joy in providing excellent and meticulous care for the people I work with. The attention to detail that was required in nursing has become an asset in handling the ever changing market of today's time.
My experience has made me top notch at protecting my clients through the necessary contingencies and time-lines that are crucial in a transaction. I believe some of the things that sets me apart from other agents is that I genuinely do care about each of my clients and often build long lasting friendships and relationships with them that last long after the transaction. I respond to all inquiries and calls in a timely manner and I don't take your trust in me lightly. I will always enter into each agreement with determination and motivation as if it was my first. I believe all of these traits is what has lead to my success. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to getting to know you!

Lisa helped us price our house correctly and we had two offers within three days of putting it on the market. The one we accepted was at the full asking price. We settled on the house at the end of April 2016 after working with Lisa over a ten-month period. She was with us every step of the way and met every single commitment she made to us. She never missed a meeting, was always on time and responsive, and gave us great advice along the way. She is an excellent negotiator.
Lisa also helped us on the buying end when we purchased a newly-built home. She represented us very well, was present at all of the meetings we had with the builder including the walk-throughs - and she noticed things that we would have missed on our own.
As with any major transaction, there were bumps in the road which were sometimes stressful. When we encountered these, Lisa was always there to help us navigate them - keeping us calm and helping us keep things in perspective. Half real estate agent, half psychologist!
We've enjoyed getting to know Lisa over the past ten months and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a house. She knows her stuff. She is a true professional and has also become a good friend.
Lisa Alonso is TRULY a dedicated real estate professional. She is smart, resourceful, organized, articulate, dependable, and sincere. (The list can go on.) She goes above and beyond her job to make sure her clients are completely happy and satisfied. Lisa ensured that our needs were met and she was very thorough and efficient. In every real estate transaction we have dealt with her she has been by far a stellar agent. She has an outstanding knowledge in the business and in the market and provided great advice in the purchase of our new home. She understood what we needed/wanted and went above and beyond what we expected and delivered. My husband and I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone! We will definitely be using her services again in the future!
Lisa is the best. I bought a house with her when I relocated, I recommended another friend who bought a house with her, and another friend is looking and we are all happy. She provides excellent service, insightful advice and is absolutely trustworthy. She is quick, has enormous patience, follows up on all the issues in a real estate deal and is always very responsive to all the members of the family. Every member of the family feels well served at the end with no regrets. If I buy another house, we would definitely want Lisa on our side
We used Kevin to sell our previous house and buy our current house. He was great to work with throughout the entire process - well informed about the local real estate market, always available and responsive to our questions. Kevin's building and construction background was a true asset in both situations. His knowledge and expertise was helpful during the buying and home inspection processes. He was able to come up with solutions to any infrastructure or design concerns we had when looking at potential homes. And his contacts came in very handy when selling our previous house, as repairs and other fixes could be made quickly and by a company we trusted. His background is something a lot of other real estate agents don't have and definitely was to our advantage.
