About Kristin...


Hello! I’m Kristin Coffelt, a licensed realtor with RE/MAX since 2005. I work with buyers and sellers throughout the greater Des Moines Metro area.  I live and breathe real estate (so you don't have to).  I'm a full time real estate agent so I deal with your home buying/selling process on your schedule, not when it's convenient for me. 

Prior to becoming a RE/MAX Realtor I worked as a transaction coordinator for RE/MAX and as an Escrow Closing Officer for First American Escrow.  What does this mean to you?  I've been involved in all aspects of the real estate process, so there isn't too much that shocks me.  If something comes up in the process of buying or selling your home that shocks you - call me!  There is a high probability that I've dealt with it before and can give you an answer to your question and how to move past it.  I'll use my experience in all facets of real estate to make your home buying/selling experience as smooth and seamless as possible.

Results that speak for themselves!

I do most of my business by being accessible to my clients - whether that's online, through email, texting, phone or driving - I'll make the process convenient for you and your schedule.

The average agent in the greater Des Moines Metro area sells an average of 6 homes per year.  I have averaged over 50 home sales per year for the last four years (2012-2017)!  What's this mean to you - I've been around the block once or twice and know what I'm doing.  You can trust that I'll have your best interests in mind and will make the process go as smooth and seamless as possible.

I've been honored to have been recognized in the top 5% of agents (DMAAR Circle of Excellence) based on volume and closings for the last 3 years.  More importantly, I've been honored to have so many past clients and friends who trust me and continue to refer their friends, family members and co-workers when looking to buy or sell their home.

Are you starting to see a trend...  I'm not your average agent and I don't deliver average results.  When you're ready for a true real estate expert to find your next home in the Des Moines area, give me a call.  I know you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I specialize in homes in the following areas:  Des Moines, West Des Moines, Clive, Grimes, Johnston, Waukee, Ankeny, Windsor Heights, Altoona, Pleasant Hill, Norwalk, and Indianola.

How Do I Do It?

I believe in focusing on the client. Your goals, whether buying are selling, are my primary focus and concern.  I have a team of experts behind me that provide unparalleled support to you throughout the process.

I’ll always be honest with clients, even if it means telling them something they don’t want to hear. 

I’ll make every effort possible to ensure that your real estate goal is achieved.
