The decision to move—to buy a home or sell your current one, is deeply personal, and few understand this better Kris Jones. A global real estate advisor with an ear for her clients' needs and goals, Kris brings empathy and joy to the real estate process, along with strong negotiation skills and deep insight into the communities she serves. Her desire to go above and beyond for the buyers and sellers she works with has earned her a stellar reputation as she navigates real estate’s swift-moving currents. As a listing agent, Kris capitalizes on her experience as an interior designer, transforming her clients’ homes into properties that can be easily marketed to a targeted audience. For buyers, her eye for style and interiors helps her clients envision a home that they can make their own. Her client-first approach is marked by the necessity to go above and beyond to help clients achieve their real estate goals. From waterfront to peekaboo views in Gig Harbor and beyond, Kris understands a home’s intrinsic value and how that aligns with its emotional worth. Whether working with investors, veteran home sellers, or first-time buyers, her market valuation and appraisal of emotional value are second to none. Kris aligned with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty for the support it offers her and her clients. As a broker, she’s guiding her clients through the swift-moving market, and RSIR provides her with tools to ensure transactions are navigated quickly and efficiently. The brokerage’s award-winning marketing allows her to showcase her clients’ listings front and center. And the brand power and trust of Sotheby’s also align with her core values—honesty and care, that reach down the block and around the world. A Northwest girl through and through, Kris was born in Spokane and spent her formative years in Bellevue. A graduate of Western Washington University, she played volleyball and studied design and art history. The mom of two grown children and three stepchildren, she also just became a step-grandmother for the first time. Her love for outdoor adventures continues to grow—she lives at the water’s edge and takes advantage of every chance she gets—whether it’s paddleboarding, kayaking, or just soaking up some vitamin D.
