With a father who is a top cardiac surgeon and a mother who went to two olympics, Kristen's family was no stranger to excellence. During her teenage years, her competitive shooting on the US shooting team included winning national titles and traveling the world.
My experience competing on an international level has taught me what I could accomplish with drive, discipline & determination and these lessons have influenced every aspect of my life.
After graduating with a business degree from Notre Dame, Kristen began a career in public accounting at Deloitte and Touche in Denver, where she met her husband, Nick.
Top Winter Park Real Estate Agent
Fulfilling a lifelong dream of living in the mountains, Nick and Kristen moved from Denver to Winter Park in 1998 and Kristen's real estate career began. Since that time she has embraced the business and has been the #1 agent in Grand County over the past five years, closing over $100 million in real estate during that time.
Kristen is relentlessly dedicated to her career and her desire to serve and excel are what keep her in the office so late. Technological innovation, creative marketing, commitment, going above and beyond, and high ethical standards are just part of what has fueled her success. Kristen is most proud of the consistently happy clients she has worked with and the primarily referral and repeat business she has built based upon the appreciation of her effort from people she has worked for. Her affiliation with RE/MAX Peak to Peak and their philosophy of encouraging creativity and individuality has been a remarkable fit.
She urges anyone interested in buying or selling a property to do their homework. For example, call local title companies, banks, and lenders for recommendations and opinions on realtors as these professionals see agents at their best and during stressful situations. Find someone dedicated, experienced, trustworthy, and with a successful track record to advise your family through the critical purchase or sale of such an important asset.

For the Love of Horses
Horse was Kristen's first word and at that point her parents knew they were in trouble! When Kristen is not at work she can be found on one of her two horses. A number of years ago Kristen became a part of a second family in the Arabian Horse World. The people are wonderful and the experiences of training, competing, laughing, crying and growing have been invaluable. In 2007 & 2008 she won US Top Ten National Championships which were highlights of a lifetime of loving horses. You will never see a bigger smile on Kristen's face than when she is on her horse! See the video below for a few highlights.
"Wow: If only all realtors could be like Kristen Meyer! We had a terrific experience working with her, and have recommended her regularly ever since.She did whatever it took, including snowshoeing in to see property and even towing our car out of a ditch! She is extremely knowledgeable about the properties in the area and had great suggestions and insights. She was prompt and thorough in her follow through, and patient with us throughout the process. And her upbeat attitude always makes her a pleasure to work with. Kristen is the best!" ~ Jeff and Sarah
I am a real estate agent in the Florida Keys and have been licensed with Century 21 Prestige Realty since 1992. Knowing the power of Century 21, when I wanted to buy my second home in Winter Park, I wanted to work with Century 21 there. I found their local site, and began to investigate who knew the area and read the bios. I chose Kristen Meyer. She took care of all the details for me and made the process quite easy. Little things like Heat! We don't have heaters where we live and had complications with the heater in the unit we were buying. Kristen knew who to get to fix the problem and understood it. Buying from afar, trust is a must! We remain friends and that speaks for itself. Kristen is a hard working, go the extra mile girl and I highly recommend her services. ~ Lucy Doyle Century 21 Prestige Realty
I have now used Kristen to purchase three lots in Winter Park. With a dynamic and changing market like Winter Park, I feel it is necessary to have an agent who is active and in contact with the Real Estate Community. I received a phone call from Kristen one evening after we had just put in a contract on a lot. Kristen had just heard of another pending offer on our lot while at a cocktail party, we modified our bid the next day and won the contract. I can honestly say that without Kristen I would have missed that opportunity. Thank You Kristen!! ~ Bill
Kristen, I guess the fact that we bought a second property from you in the same development speaks highly of your integrity and honesty. Sandi and I truly enjoyed working with you on every step in the process on finding that special place to build our second home. We can't thank you enough. ~ Jim and Sandi
I have worked with Kristen (as a buyer and a seller) on several transactions over the last 6 years. She listens, offers great advice, and follows through on every detail. She is very knowledgeable about the area and really gets things done. Thanks, Kristen! ~ Jackie
Kristen Meyer was extremely easy to work with, fully understanding of my needs and requirements, and very successful in getting the transaction to work for all parties involved. Thoroughly enjoyed doing business with her and look forward to working with her again in the future. ~ Linda - Denver
Kristen, You and Nick were easy to work with, good listeners, mind readers with a great ending result. ~ Pete
"We can't say enough about Kristen's professionalism. Not only is she knowledgeable, but also understands the importance of follow-through and communication. Kristen has helped us through two real estate transactions and we hope that there will be more in the future. ~ Liza
Purchasing real estate in your home town is a challenge - in a different state and across two time zones makes it even more difficult. Our condo purchase with Kristen was easier and went smoother than our purchase in our own home town. Kristen spent the necessary up-front time to understand our wants and requirements, so that we weren't wasting our time when we arrived in the valley from out-of-state to look at properties. We found THE condo on our first and only day of looking." ~ Grant
After appraising Real Estate in the metropolitan Denver area for 18 years I relocated to Grand County in 2002 to pursue my career. Being unfamiliar with the market area one of my first priorities was to develop a relationship with a knowledgeable Real Estate agent. One of my first appraisal assignments was on one of Kristen's listing. I was most fortunate to find Kristen extremely knowledgeable regarding the market area of Grand County and that she was more than willing to share this information. She has been great to work with and I recommend her highly to anyone who needs a Real Estate agent in Grand County. ~ Dave
