We have been friends with Kristen for years. When we got news that we needed to move to Texas for a job we called her first. She and her team are very professional and gave us great advice to get house ready to put on market. She understands the area and priced the house fairly so it would sell. We had another house in Texas with closing date fast approaching and once we had an offer she and her team got us to closing without any issues. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable and professional agent then Kristen and team are the answer.

- Jennifer and Bill Toomey

We were very fortunate to have been referred to Kristen for our relocation from Vancouver, Canada to Atlanta. Kristen was professional and beyond knowledgeable about the Buckhead area. She listened to our needs and requirements and focused on the area and house she felt would be the best fit for our family. She was great at communicating and referring us to others in various industries to help us get what we needed to get done. More than anything we trusted her and believed she was always looking out for our best interests. Jennie was awesome with communicating what was needed and stepped in to help us when Kristen was unavailable. We will definitely refer them to anyone moving to Buckhead and the surrounding area and will use them again if/when we sell our home.

- Jodi & Geoff Haydon

Thank you all for getting such a quick closing on my investment home. Always informing, having wonderful suggestions from day one to finish. Actually, 6 days for the offer was very quick, since I had it on the market with another firm for over 9 months. All very professional and would definitely use it again. Thanks again!

- Marjorie

Kristen could not have been more thorough or professional. My experience was excellent and I would highly recommend these agents to anyone. Everything was seamless and I never once had to worry if something might fall through the cracks.

- Jennifer and Collie Smith

What a great experience! Being very new to Atlanta and in the market for a home (first time), Kristen and her team were instrumental in making the process as seamless as possible from end to end. This included understanding my requirements finding what’s available, taking into account my lifestyle which included my soon to be fiance joining me from another country, the bid process (negotiating with me in mind), and information sharing throughout the process including working with the financial institution I went with up to the final closing day. Very knowledgeable in of the Atlanta market with great advice for new homeowners. I will highly recommend Kristen and her team when in the market for a home.

- Roddy Rampersad

I have had the pleasure of working with Ruth, Kristen, and Jennie on several real estate transactions recently. They have a very good sense of the market and deliver professional service at every stage of the transaction. Their contract administration is extraordinary. I am comfortable recommending them to anyone.

- John F. Schiavone

The Skogstad-Sodermann Team was amazing! We were relocating from New England and Kristen and Ruth helped us learn about the various neighborhoods in Atlanta and were tireless in showing us LOTS of houses. They really understood our priorities and budget. They walked us through the purchase process and closing and continued to be available even after the purchase was completed. We will definitely recommend the Team to friends and colleagues.

- Mindy Pincus and Rich Wagman

My husband and I were extremely fortunate to work with the Skogstad-Sodemann team on both sides of our buying and selling transactions. Kristen and Ruth always had our best interest in mind while negotiating the offer of our home as well as getting the best price for our new home. Kristen, Ruth, and their assistant Jennie were extremely responsive, thorough, and knowledgeable. They both have a great understanding of the Atlanta market and priced our home effectively. We would highly recommend the Skogstad-Sodemann team to our friends and neighbors.

- Adam and Molly Fuller

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work on our Town Commons purchase. You were awesome to work with and continuously went above and beyond the call of duty, for exceeding our expectations. Thank you for helping to make this a seamless and fun process!

- Cindy & Al

With realtors like Ruth and Kristen, easy to see why you are #1.

- Sigmund & Nancy Lee

Kevin and I are so excited to have closed on our home in Peachtree Hills! We could not have done it without our agent Kristen Sodemann whose experience, negotiation skills, and good humor proved invaluable, both in finding the perfect home for us and working out a complex short-sale situation.

- Alice Strachan

Ruth Skogstad and Kristen Sodemann are truly the most amazing agents ever! After 2 1/2 years for sale, in one of the worst real estate markets in history, I called on Ruth and Kristen to list my home in Brookhaven. Within one month, they were able to secure an offer and subsequently, a contract. During the period from contract to close, we were faced with many obstacles. Ruth and Kristen never wavered in their professionalism, dependability, and patience, to see the contract through. Being in the mortgage business for 26 years, I have worked with, literally, hundreds of realtors. Ruth’s and Kristen’s expertise, knowledge, and dedication in the real estate industry are unsurpassed! Whether you are selling or buying, you will NEVER find a better agent!

- Sharon Pounds

The Skogstad team was terrific!!! They went above and beyond in all respects and made both the selling of our house and the purchase of our new home not only painless but a pleasure. They were so knowledgeable, always responsive and accessible, and incredibly professional not to mention just plain fun to be with!! I highly recommend Kristen and Ruth and cannot say enough great things about them and their expertise!

- Lizzie Crawford

I felt that no one else could have sold our home last winter in the terrible market that existed then. Even better, you found the perfect buyer, one that we felt very good about turning over the home we had lived in and loved for over forty years!

- Betsy Frank

The appointment-only was the best! The Skogstad-Sodemann team did a lot of work and obtained a great result. Sold our house within 2 weeks for top dollar!

- Kathleen Eidbo

Ruth’s patience with me impressed me the most. I was a very difficult client. She and Kristen were positive and professional. They both went way beyond the call of duty.

- Evelyn Dukes

Ruth’s patience and honesty impressed me the most. Also, it was a pleasure to work with Kristen. They are a great team!

- Brian Barber

Kristen was extremely professional, very knowledgeable about the Atlanta area, and asserted to us all the concerns that come with buying / selling a house. She made the process exciting and very low stress.

- Hannah and Brad Cousar

Ruth and Kristen went beyond the call of duty in making the difficult and sensitive process of buying a home very pleasant for me. They were exceptionally responsive in providing me with data, alerting me to new listings, and communicating via telephone and email in an expeditious manner. Their insight into the Atlanta market allowed me to get a house before it even came on the market! I was also impressed with the technology resources and level of professionalism displayed all the way to the closing table. More importantly, they were friendly, flexible, and good listeners. I felt as if they were interested in getting to know me as a person without forcing ideas on me. I love the new house and would gladly recommend the Skogstad-Sodemann team to any prospective buyer.

- R. Allen Hewett, Jr.

If you are truly interested in selling your house and buying a new one, then your best option is to work with Kristen and Ruth. Despite the tough market, they exceeded expectations and we were able to find the perfect house. We could not have asked for a better experience.

- Ben and Elizabeth Newton

Our sale involved three families with ties to our wonderful neighborhood. Kristen was able to work with everyone beautifully. Kristen and Ruth were a pleasure to deal with.

- Jan Roberts

Kristen did an amazing job. She performed way above and beyond my expectations. I was very impressed with the way she stepped up every time there was a twist or turn in this complicated deal. She handled all the parties involved expertly. I valued her honest opinions and always felt she was protecting my interests. I would highly recommend Kristen to anyone looking for a broker, especially the complicated deals where someone needs a specialist.
