I want you to be 100% satisfied, both with my service and with your new property. I will involve myself in your home search as much or as little as you like, and will communicate information to you on a schedule and in a fashion that suits you best. My goal is to make every customer a customer for life, so my job isn't done until you are completely happy in your new home.
I have been helping buyers and sellers for over 15 years. I am a USAA Preferred Agent and a Top Producer in the Billings market. I specialize in VA loans and working with military families. I have also received the prestigious International Diamond Society Award for the last three years. I have earned the designation of CRS which is the highest designation a Realtor can earn, less than 4% of all Realtors have earned this.
It would be my pleasure to speak with you and put all of my expertise to work for you. Please, feel free to call or email me at anytime.
Working with Kris was a great experience! He was extremely responsive to phone calls and text messages at all times. We were pretty picky about what we were looking for and Kris continued to send great options until we found the home we wanted. Whenever we were viewing houses Kris was honest and factual about the property and didn’t say anything just to get us to buy the property. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the local housing market and it was a pleasure to work with him!
I recently purchased a house in Billings and could not of made it all happen without Kris. He went above and beyond to see to it I got a good house and that every thing was right. he knows his stuff and can make things happen, hell of a guy also.
Excellent! Very helpful, knowledgeable and personable. Definitely will contact Kris in the future when we move again.
Kris was incredible from start to finish. He was very flexible with times to meet us to show houses, he helped get the paperwork and closing time moved through so that we could move into the house on the exact date we wanted, and he went to bat for us with getting a couple of items fixed. He was knowledgeable of working a VA loan, and working with our bank regarding their timelines and practices. As a uniformed service family, no doubt we'll be moving again, and Kris will be our first call when we do. Thanks!
We had already purchased our new home out-of-state before we hooked up with Kris to sell our Billings home. We were anxious about the selling process especially since both my husband and I would be relocated out-of-state by the time the house went on the market. Kris surpassed our highest expectations! We met one time face-to-face at the house. I have to echo what some of the other reviewers stated. Kris was very patient and answered all of our questions. He shared data on how many homes he sells, how long his listings typically stay on the market, and provided info on comps in the area. Kris asked us what we wanted to sell the house for and suggested a price he felt would sell quickly. We went with his suggestion. We are so glad we did. He was RIGHT ON THE BUTTON! The house was only on the market for just 1 day before we got multiple offers. Kris coached us through the buyer negotiations with the result that the sold for just $1000.00 under our original asking price. Since we were out of state Kris helped out by letting in the cleaning crew we hired, checking that they did a good job, and taking the trash left from moving out to the curb on trash day. No matter what time of day or night we called with our questions, he answered promptly and thoroughly. Since we were located out of state, Kris set it up so we could sign all the documents electronically. I recommend Kris to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house. By following his advice the process was totally painless and very quick. I don’t think you could find a better realtor anywhere!
With this being our first time homebuying experience Kris made everything easy and smooth for us. He answered any and all questions we had as well as offered his advice and experience to help us along our way. We are very grateful to have had Kris on our journey and I definitely recommend him to my family and friends as well as to all who read this!! Kris Olson thank you again for everything you did for us and all of your help:)
As a first time home buyer, I wasn't sure what to expect. We sent out a few emails to a few different realtors when we found the first batch of houses we had interest in. The first 3 were busts. One of them took 24+ hours to respond to emails. One didn't seem to know much about houses, which was annoying, as I had a lot of questions that were not answered to my expectations. The other didn't seem to "get" what I was looking for. He just seemed to be trying to sell me a home. I sent my first email to Kris around 10pm on a weekday. He responded within 30 minutes. There would be days where I would email him periodically throughout the day, and he always responded within an hour (typically within 5 minutes to be honest). He even texts! The constant communication is one of Kris' shining abilities. When you're looking to buy a home, you want quick communication. 5 stars in this category. When we meet up to look at houses, he would bring a portable tablet. This allowed him to better research the home and look for new listings on the fly. It's crazy how technology opened up our options. He answered every question I had, no matter how irrelevant. Everything from how to update an electrical outlet to "are there hardwoods under this carpet" to "what are your thoughts on this neighborhood". Once Kris got to know what we were looking for, he helped guide us to the areas that we would agree with. He quickly figured out the style of house we wanted and the yard we were after. This saved us a great deal of time and frustration. We went from looking at countless houses by ourselves, each with a handful to flaws, to seeing homes we really liked. It was nice to have trouble finding anything wrong at all with the homes Kris showed us. He showed us a bunch of homes. Many nights I would find something online I liked, and email it to Kris. He would always respond, "Why don't we check it out tomorrow, and what do you think about this one ..." It's incredible to see his work ethic. He honestly does work 7 days a week. Once we realized what was on the market, and saw so many things we loved, it allowed us to KNOW when we found the house of our dreams. In fact, we saw so many houses, that when we saw the right one, we knew. We felt so confident, we were able to make an offer that day without hesitation. He even went to the lenders office with me for Closing. What courteous, polite, and attentive guy! Kris put me in a house that I will love for many years to come. He will be the one to sell the house for us if that time ever comes. Highly recommended.
We used Kris Olsen to sell our home in Billings this winter and he was outstanding.
Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. The Kris stood out as the best Billings has to offer: his organic rankings are excellent (meaning people find listings on his site easily), his social media presence was strong, and I could tell he put a lot of work into his listings.
We spoke with Kris and then met with him at our home. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes he sells, how long his listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info on comps in the area. We were concerned that our house, which was located in an older neighborhood, during the winter, would be tough to sell. Kris made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like giving us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more.
When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition.
Our house went under contract 6 days after we put it on the market at 1% under asking price. We accepted and Kris walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience.
I've recommended Kris to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.
We had tried to sell our home with 3 other Realtors prior to working with Kris. Kris was head and shoulders above them in regards to knowledge, professionalism, and work ethic. We received a full price contract much quicker than we had expected. When we were on contract, he was quickly on top of every obstacle that we were confronted with. I would highly recommend Kris, if you are planning on buying or selling a home in the Billings area.
Kris is very good at his job. Took us around to see many houses. We love the house we found and the process went extremely smooth thanks to Kris. He knows the Billings area very well and proved to us he has plenty of experience and success.
This was a very easy purchase transaction. Kris responds quickly to all requests (no matter how silly they are). It is difficult to trust some agents who just have a paycheck in mind. Kris was honest and up front throughout the process. He was very knowledgeable and has great negotiating tactics. We will be calling Kris again when we are ready to purchase rental properties. Highly recommend Kris!
We had a great experience buying our first home with Kris. He made the process fun and stress-free. What I appreciate most is how responsive Kris is. He was always available to talk and always made us feel like we were his number one priority
Kris helped me buy a home in a city and state that I am not familiar. His knowledge of the market and competence in the process from start to finish was impressive. I have a great deal of respect for salespersons who give advice that isn't always in their best financial interest. Kris methodically got to know me and what I was looking for in a home. He quickly found houses that were what I wanted and I bought a house with him in no time. No headaches. No buyer's remorse in any detail. I would, and will, wholeheartedly recommend Kris to anyone buying a home and I'm sure he's just as proficient on the selling end too.
Kris was very professional and patient throughout the home-buying experience. He was willing to show multiple properties and wasn't discouraged when I was unable to find a home after the first couple of weeks of looking. He was involved throughout the process, and remained patient despite a few hiccups in the pre-sale home inspection that we had to work through. Overall Kris was a very good agent.
Kris was so easy and helpful to work with. The process was much smoother with him being our Realtor. It was a pleasure to work with him and we would recommend his services to others. We bought our house from out of state and Kris lined up houses for us to view for the limited time we were in town. He always made us feel like the priority.
I would recommend Kris to anyone. He adds the personal touch and the relationship continues thru closing.
Kris was great to work with and always put our needs ahead of just his opportunity to sell a home. He is honest and works hard for his client. I would highly recommend him. Best agent we have ever had out of the 8 agents we have worked with in our 56 years of marriage
I would highly recommend Kris Olson without hesitation. Kris helped us sell our house, which sold in one day and also helped us buy our 2nd home. He was very efficient, knowledgable and professional. I have full confidence in Kris and will use him again in the future.
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Kris Olson as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their needs. We just moved to Billings, Mt. from out of State and didn’t know a soul. Kris was referred to us through the USAA Homebuyers advantage program. We have bought and sold many homes throughout the US and were unsure of what we were getting ourselves into here in Montana.
Kris had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best school districts. He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs.
A master with the contract negotiations, Kris came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. We found Kris to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Kris was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our offer on our new home, and sure enough we won the bidding war!
We are pleased to recommend Kris Olson to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again He will be our first choice in real estate agents.
Every question I had, Kris had an answer for. I was looking for that just right property and was probably asking too much at times, but kris was very patient with me and did a fantastic job of helping my family find our new home. He was intuitive and the picture of integrity! Thanks so much!
Kris is a very knowledgeable Realtor. He is very professional and made the process of selling my home very easy. I would highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
Kris was a huge help when we started looking to buy our first home. He made time to work around our busy schedules and was just as excited to go look at every listing as we were. He was quick to jump on every opportunity to help in our home search and was instrumental in helping us purchase our new home
