Kristi is a breath of fresh air in the real estate industry. We have moved around the country repeatedly and experienced many real estate professionals, having been a Realtor myself in Arizona. In an often aggressive market, Kristi manages to get the job done, with grace. She is adept at balancing what we needed, what we wanted, while being compassionately conscious of all the emotions involved in buying and selling our homes. In our historic, sought after neighborhood it is tricky to navigate timing and price negotiations. Kristi's patience with our process was a gift. Helping us to stage our home, she left no detail out doing things to set our home apart from the competition. Keeping her cool while fielding the frenzy of showings and negotiating the AMAZING sale of our home in 9 hours was dreamy. She was equally excellent on our purchase side. Work with Kristi. You will be happy you did!

Kristi is the ideal realtor, she was a great resource in this not easy time. Her demeanor was great at putting you at ease and making the whole process much easier.
Kevin Monahan & Sarah Frost - 2020
Kristi did a great job for us! She kept us positive as the selling period trudged on. We probably had our house priced too high—but you could not tell us that! Kristi was always in touch with us—making suggestions and following up on our suggestions. Kristi is very informed on all house selling details and she was very willing to get answers for us on our questions. She is a very positive person with a delightful personality. We have no problem recommending her to other people. She is always bearing gifts! She is extremely thoughtful!
Our experience with Kristi Gaynor was a plus. We had not sold the house in 42 years so we were a little behind times. Kristi helped us through this process and it took place without a hitch. We are most happy to recommend Kristi to anyone who is selling their house especially if they want a knowledgeable , upbeat realtor who makes you feel good and at ease.
Most Sincerely, Gretchen and Jim Cain - 2020
I met Kristi through a co-worker and after speaking with her once I felt like she would be a great partner in my house hunt. She always has a positive demeanor and was infallible as I drug her over the river, through the woods, and all across the city until we finally found a place that I could call home (for now!). She also had a great list of contacts for me which was a big help for a non-Hoosier like myself. If you're looking for a realtor that will take their time and hep you find the right fit, then look no further.
Scott Singer - 2020
"IT ONLY TAKES ONE! This quickly became our motto after we listed our home with Kristi. A subtle reminder to keep the high stress of selling one’s home to a minimum. Kristi played an integral role to ensure we had an awesome home, that showed well and was priced right for the market. She assessed our home, highlighting where we should invest to maximize our market potential. We committed to executing the plan and she identified wonderful resources, to include the best multi-talented home repair guru, to complete work affordably and promptly. Given we were transitioning to a new state, Kristi went above and beyond; collecting mail, supervising work, cutting on lights and removing trash bins from the curb! We created a wonderful, respectful collaboration that allowed us to sell our home. Kristi helped us to superbly navigate this high stress time...It Only Takes One! Thanks Kristi, you are the best! Warmly, Tam & Maurice."
Maurice & Tamara Markey - 2019
"After searching for a new home with another realtor for nearly two years, my wife and I switched to Kristi and closed on our new home within a few months. Kristi bought us realistic homes that would fit with our family. She was always available and greatly helped us with our decision process. She is very affable and caring. My wife and I highly recommend Kristi without any reservations!!!"
Fred Francis - 2018
"Kristi is great to work with. She loves getting to know her clients to help them determine the best decision about purchasing a home for them. If you weren’t friends with Kristi before you started your search for a new home, you soon will be whether you purchase a new home or not. Kristi did not pressure us at all on any decisions. She worked within our comfort level. Her communication and flexibility was great. She has a very cheerful and calming personality, that helps manage the stress of the home search, sale and purchase. She is thoughtful and thorough and showed us homes we were interested in seeing before we were even sure we wanted to make a move. We highly recommend her."
Mike & Tina Kask - 2019
We have worked with Kristi on two sales and two purchases over the last two years. As very busy individuals with active work and family lives we needed a realtor who was flexible and efficient. Kristi was very responsive and listened to what we wanted and needed to get done in a short period of time. With extra concerns during the pandemic, Kristi made sure our wishes were followed regarding showing our house, as well as going to see the houses we were interested in. Kristi is friendly and professional. Communication is such an important part of any transaction. Kristi really does a great job in that area too. We will definitely call on her services again should the need arise.
Mike & Tina Kask - 2020
We used Kristi to sell our house. It was an exceptional experience! She consistently had our best interest in mind. Each and every interaction with her was professional and incredibly delightful. Our results far exceeded our expectations. Although what impressed us the most is total experience of working with Kristi. She sets goals and successfully executed them! I am not sure I mentioned she is super fun too!
Mike & Polly Reynolds - 2020
Kristi was a pro from start to finish, a partner in the process. She navigated our sale and purchase with the highest integrity and caters to all sides responsibly and responsively. Well done and Thank you!
Patrick & Maryclare Hasbrook - 2020
As first time home-buyers, my husband and I were impressed with the way that Kirsti took the opportunity to not only teach us along the way but encourage us to make informed decisions surrounding the final stages of buying like inspection, price negotiation and closing stipulations. With each new step in the process, Kristi was transparent, realistic and communicative-- all the things you want when making such an important purchase. From our first meeting we could see that Kristi's optimism and warmth was infectious-- we gained a life long agent and friend. Would recommend to anyone looking for a trusted and diligent advocate for home buying.
Dave & Mollie Cavanagh - 2020
And, for the record, Kristi Engle Gaynor is and was a fantastic realtor! She handled every step of the journey for my parents with patience, grace, respect and smarts. Thank you Kristi for everything!
Molly Milton - 2020
Kristi is absolutely amazing! As first time homebuyers, my fiancé Katie and I had A LOT of questions throughout the process. Kristi promptly answered any and all questions we had, and she taught us so much about the homebuying process. Without her expertise we would have felt lost. Kristi's only goal was to find the perfect home for us. We trusted her 100% that she was always acting in our best interest. Her knowledge and experience taught us to look for potential problem areas in homes that we would never have considered on our own. On top of all this, Kristi's relentlessly positive attitude and personality is an amazing asset. Whenever Katie and I started to feel stressed by the process, Kristi would be there with words of wisdom to help level us out. Katie and I are so happy to have made this connection and friendship, and we cannot wait until we work with Kristi again in the future.
Zach Sosna & Katie Lyons - 2020
"We couldn't be happier choosing Kristi as our agent in Indianapolis! We may purchase more properties in the Indy area over the next few years, and we plan to come back to Kristi for every purchase. She knows a lot about the area and always found information when we needed it. Kristi will take the time to understand your wants and needs in a home, and has an incredible team behind her. She was easy to reach through texts, emails, and phone calls throughout our home-buying process. Don't hesitate for a second to give her a call!"
Cole Raven - 2017
"Kristi’s resourcefulness and follow-through are top notch.
She feels like part of the family and knows exactly what are our needs."
Mary Madden - 2019
"I highly recommend Kristi for your real estate brokerage needs. Kristi was professional, knowledgeable, personal, attentive and got results! Kristi helped me sell 2 investment single home properties that were not getting much traction. Kristi had great ideas and was always available and kept in touch with updates."
Dennis Kelly - 2018
"I'm so thankful that we had Kristi there to help my husband and I purchase our first home! She was so knowledgeable and answered every single one of our questions about the home buying process with patience and accuracy. She was professional and responded very quickly. I couldn't imagine going through this process with anyone else as our realtor. We didn't just gain a realtor, we gained a life-long friend as well! I will HIGHLY recommend her to everyone wanting to purchase or sell a home!"
Jacob & Mackinzi Bradshaw - 2019
"Great communication and ethical approach. Took good care of her clients and worked to maintain smooth transaction and path to closing"
Julianne Hurdle, The Peer Reputation Team - 2020
"Kristi was wonderful to work with on the sale of our home. She came in with fresh new ideas to help bring in buyers. She used several different social media sites to gain awareness of our property. She is a great realtor and we recommend her to anyone. Thank you Kristi. You are amazing!!!"
Bryon & Christine Konvolinka- 2019
Getting you to "Home Sweet Home"
"Kristi went above and beyond to help us buy our forever home! During our house hunt, Kristi was readily available to show us listings-after work, on weekends, and many times right as they hit the market. And when she wasn’t showing us properties, she was always a phone call away-and still is! Not only that, but she even entertained our 4 year old and baby so we could look around in peace! Talk about full service! We were kept well informed of the seller’s status and responses. She made the process go smoothly, was creative in her approach and most importantly, was a trustworthy and honest friend!"
Sean & Meghann Roseman - 2019
"I can't say enough great things about Kristi Engle Gaynor and the service that she offered my family this spring as we were selling our home and buying a new home. With 4 kiddos 5 and under, we were prepared for a highly stressful and frustrating process regardless of who we contracted with as a realtor. We've gone through the same process before with no kids, and it was still stressful. Brienn Darr and I have both said to each other "I'm not sure how we could have done this without Kristi". While we were looking at homes Kristi would find a room to play with our kiddos while we would look around so that we could focus, she was very responsive with any questions that we had, she allowed us to make decisions but was assertive enough to steer us back on track when she felt necessary and her calls were correct in hindsight. Her network of professionals that she refers are also top notch. Chad Fallis, for example, and CrossCountry Mortgage, Inc. - Indianapolis were awesome on the mortgage side of things. Frazier Moving Services, too.
I've heard it said that realtors are a necessary evil, and in some cases that is probably true. This is far from the case with Kristi, we will work w/ her for any future real estate needs and will recommend her to any who asks. The process that she guided us through made it clear she understands what a good client experience requires. And thank you Jason Barnaby for connecting us!"
JJ Darr - 2019
Kristi was such an amazing realtor to work with during my home search. She was so helpful in every aspect of the process. She was always available and prompt whenever I reached out to her via email or phone. If there was something she couldn't answer immediately, she always made sure to follow-up asap. She was a professional in every sense of the word. It was a particularly hectic time for me, as I was simultaneously in the process of selling my old house. She gave me candid advise about that process and made sure I was doing everything right. She knows the industry inside out and is very well connected. I couldn't have worked with a better person, and I am so happy to be residing in my current home, which she helped me buy. You will not be disappointed if you work with Kristi in purchasing or selling your home. She will get the job done and more!!"
Charles Umunna - 2018
"Kristi helped us purchase our home this fall. She was very knowledgeable of the Indianapolis market and we felt like she represented us well. She helped us look at many houses until we found the "right" one. We would recommend her to our friends and family and would definitely use her again."
Lynne McIntrye Rowe - 2018
"Kristi was our realtor this past spring. This was our 1st home buying experience and we had had such a hard time finding our 1st house prior to working with Kristi. When we called Kristi and set up our first showing with her, it seemingly from there on our fell into place! We managed to buy the very first house we put an offer in with Kristi's help. She was amazing through the offer and closing process! She listened to each question, concern and idea we had and handled everything seamlessly. We are now settled into our 1st home, and have Kristi to thank!! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy, hardworking, and compassionate realtor."
Beau Pahud & Katie Mitsch - 2018
"Kristi was a pleasure to work with to sell our home! She educated us on the process, advised us in setting the right asking price, and helped us stage everything for the best pictures. She saw details in our home worth featuring in the marketing assets. She guided a few minor repairs after inspection which allowed for a quick sale and closing. Kristi is bright, communicative partner through what can be a stressful process. I’d highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance."
Mark & Michele Boillotat - 2019
"My fantastic realtor helped me to sell my condo in hours—in the middle of winter, the “slow season”! If you are thinking of selling, contact Kristi Engle Gaynor at Tucker!"
Nancy Ahlrichs - 2018
"Standing on the ledge of a very steep real estate decision I knew I had to jump or be stuck forever. The reality is I’m in my 60s and holding the future of my family in my hands. I have lived in my home for 20 years and was scared to death. Knowing NOTHING of selling or buying a home I reached out to Kristi. Long story short, I am now living in the house I always wanted, loving it, enjoying my family more than ever. But, about Kristi. She held my hand, even while she was out of town and I would “freak out,” she was there without a delay. Her references for all aspects of buying a home, from financing, to inspection, and those details that make you nervous SHE WAS A PHONE CALL AWAY!! And the best thing I can say is that even at closing she was ahead of all of it. She had stopped by MY new house to make sure every detail was in order before she met with us to close. But the sweetest thing, she knew I had been very sad to leave my mature clematis plants. What did I find on my porch on that life renewing day...CLEMATIS'!!! She will with her exuberance, honesty, integrity and pure love for people give you her “MOST EXCELLENT” best to insure your next “MOVE” in your life."
Barbara A. Cahall - 2018
"If you are looking for a Real Estate Broker who embodies honesty, integrity, passion, active listening, and high skills, then Kristi Gaynor is the perfect choice. Kristi has a rare gift when serving her clients; she always has time for you and manages expectations with finesse. While selling a home we had for 43 years, Kristi truly listened and shaped our ideas of a perfect home sale. We discovered quickly she is adept at finding creative concepts which made our initial approach grow even stronger. Kristi overwhelmingly exceeded our top goals. We sold our home quickly and with no unforeseen challenges. Kristi monitored every detail from day one to closing. I can truly attest to the ease of working with Kristi. The skills she brings to any challenge from addressing an old oil storage tank in the backyard, burying gutter lines, removing old carpet, and countless other items in preparation to have a smooth home inspection, are vast. Kristi had the right contacts and referrals to get the jobs done. All with an attentive eye on deadlines and a smart approach to match the current market conditions. Kristi has a solid relationship with her peers which enhanced the awareness of our home to potential buyers, making us feel at ease with the process of opening and showcasing our house. The bonus with Kristi is you will have a new friend! She will always be professional, true and attentive in her advice. But you will not feel like a number, you will be treated like family. I don’t have a rolodex of names for the future. I only need one when we have another need for the best Real Estate Broker for another project. Kristi Gaynor."
Stuart Lowry - 2018
"I cannot say enough about the personal attention I received on my first visit to Indianapolis from Kristi. We had communicated via email and telephone prior to meeting in person so when we finally met face to face, it was like seeing a friend again. Kristi had listened to my concerns and expectations and spent what I am sure were countless hours previewing just the right neighborhoods and homes to show me. I have no doubt she will find me just what I am looking for and I feel like I have made a great new friend! Moving to a new city is difficult but Kristi’s professionalism, knowledge and personal interest and concern have really eased my mind."
Tim Guffey - 2018
"Kristi is the most reliable, kind and sweet realtor. Also very quick to get back to you and meet your needs for a home. She helped me through the process of finding and affordable home in such a little time. She works hard to make sure her clients get a professional service!"
Kharla Gin - 2018
"Kristi is amazing! As first time home buyers, we had so many questions about this process and were SO thankful we could always count on Kristi for the answers! She was always willing to make time for us & genuinely wanted to help us find our perfect fit. One day, she showed us this beautiful home and we just looked at each other with big smiles because we all knew we found the one! I have only good things to say about Kristi...and if you ever need a handy man, you can always count on her to 'know a guy!' to help! Thanks Kristi!"
Ethan Waples & Michelle Manard - 2019
"Local Knowledge = Knowledgeable; Process Expertise = Expert; Responsiveness = both Proactive and Responsive; Negotiation Skills = Good
Kristi is a joy to work with for all our real estate needs. She is very friendly, approachable and is a go-getter. We found Kristi to be professional, and she works well with all those within the scope of purchasing a home/property. Kristi knows many in the area/well connected, and responds to email, texts and phone calls in a timely manner. Kristi proactively sought out resources, found out answers to resolve outstanding matters quickly to resolution. She negotiated on our behalf fairly and within scope. We have and will continue to recommend Kristi to others!"
