Sales has always been in Kristi Nemec's blood, and her drive and motivation were prevalent early on. Her first job was as a telemarketer for the Kirby Vacuum company at the age of 13. "I went there every day after school and cold called straight out of the phone book. I would call my friends' parents to see what room in their house could use a good cleaning. If anyone bought a vacuum, I got a bonus!"

By taking college courses her junior and senior years of high school, Kristi graduated high school with a two-year degree already under her belt. She headed to St. Cloud State University and graduated with a degree in Advertising and Marketing. "My dream was to be the Angela Bauer of the real estate world, based on the 1980's show 'Who's the Boss?'" The day after graduating college, Kristi drove to Denver and spent several years at Coors' advertising agency in sports marketing, where one of her sales reps convinced her she needed to be in sales.

But, life took a different turn and Kristi found herself flying the friendly skies as a professional flight attendant with United Airlines. "I had only been on an airplane three or four times when I got the job with United. But I immediately knew I had found my calling. I loved flying, I loved traveling! I was super passionate about it and planned to retire with United." Following the events of 9/11, United laid off employees, and Pamperin was furloughed for what was supposed to be seven years. She moved to Boise, Idaho and bought a home. Going through that process showed Kristi that was what she was going to pursue on her layoff from United. "Looking for my first house was so exciting! I loved the negotiating, I loved everything about it. I knew that I wanted to help buyers through the process, to make it as smooth as possible and fall in love with their homes as much as I did with mine."

Kristi has been passionate about working with buyers since 2002 and never made it back to the friendly skies. “The intense training provided by United Airlines instilled in a customer service standard that I employ with my clients today. I still travel a ton just to keep the wanderlust at bay!" The 12 years she spent in the west gave Kristi a taste of world-class hiking and mountain biking in the Rockies. She tries to do as much as possible of that here in Minnesota. She also is a lover of books, finding the best Thai restaurants, outdoor concerts, art festivals, camping and sword fights with her two spirited boys, Zack and Sully.

Reviews for Kris Lindahl Real Estate

I highly recommend the Kris Lindahl team. I liked that Kirsten Dillon had almost 24/7 availability, her targeted search criteria, her intimate knowledge of the market I was looking to buy into, her spot-on assessments of the relative value of houses, and her willingness to visit houses even when I was looking only for comparison purposes. She helped me arrange financing. She also assisted me in finding competent, reliable, and reasonably priced contractors for both immediate and longer-term work after the sale. She knows her market. She's a hands-on, active agent who produced fast results. I would work with her again without hesitation.

Julie Dial from Kris Lindahl Real Estate is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. From our initial consultation, she was very knowledgeable, direct, and clearly understood our preferences. She worked diligently and efficiently to show us high quality properties in a timely fashion (which is very important in today’s market). She was incredibly accessible and responsive throughout the buying process and put us in the best position possible to buy our dream home. We appreciated her extensive knowledge of the market and she was just an all-around great person to work with. I recommend her highly to my friends and colleagues and very much look forward to working with her in the future.

From the moment Karen Busch walked into my home, I knew I was in good hands. She immediately had several great suggestions and helped us find the perfect way to present the property to sell. It was truthfully a stress-free process from beginning to end because of how transparent and responsive Karen was throughout. With my new home purchase, the service was equally stellar. We probably privately toured well over a dozen properties. Her advice was invaluable, eventually leading to us selecting the perfect property for our family. If you are looking for a true partner in your sale or home purchase, I highly recommend giving Karen Busch a call.
