Kristi Vellema


I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business - thank you for reading! I was raised by parents whose families emigrated from The Netherlands to find a better life in the U.S. Their work ethic was passed on to me and my siblings. We grew some of our own food and raised animals. I taught myself to ride horses while still young and cared for newborn calves and my brood of horses. Those efforts as a child stayed with me to adulthood and are now demonstrated as I collaborate with buyers and sellers. My goal is to always work diligently to negotiate the best price and terms possible for my client's homes while keeping the process as stress-free as possible.

My parents owned a construction company and that's when I realized I loved the construction industry. My dream of building my own home became a reality in 1998 and again in 2004. Since then, I have managed another 10 remodels. The knowledge I gained from those experiences has really been helpful during my years as a Realtor. When showing homes, I can spot problems and recommend solutions. When a client needs a good tradesman, I am often asked for a referral.

In my free time, I love to hike, golf, pet-sit, and travel to exotic destinations. I also volunteer with The Forgotten Children's Fund at M-Bar-C Ranch. If you’d like to learn more about them, click here:
