My success in real estate is due to my life-long passion of serving others. I aim to listen intently to your preferences. Matched with my work ethic, I diligently strive to succeed in my client's ambitions. For buyers, I strive to find you your perfect home. For my sellers, I market, promote and seek that perfect buyer. In both roles, I work hard for you! Real estate, transactions, promotion and negotiation have always come naturally to me. Specific to real estate, I began buying and selling my own properties ages ago; I've served as a landlord, and marketed/rented via VRBO. I've contracted my own projects, lending to my knowledge when it comes to home maintenance, updates, and inspections. These experiences, coupled with honesty, integrity, consistent communication, and professionalism, have lent me to excel in my real estate career quickly. I am constantly educating myself on the latest trends in the marketplace. I am an Indy native, and Indy's best Ambassador; I want to be yours too! My energy and natural enthusiasm for what I do can make a daunting process easy. On my website, you will find all of the information you need to buy or sell a home. If you need more information about homes in your preferred area, please contact me today so I can provide you with the latest information. Give me a call; I look forward to partnering with you.

Kristi, thank you so much for all your help in the selling of our property. Your hard work and expertise made the process go so smoothly. We appreciated your guidance and patience, and we look forward to working with you again!
"In my search for the right home, I was fortunate enough to have Kristi Gaynor along with me on the journey. She was very knowledgeable, personable, supportive, friendly, and upbeat with every interaction I had with her. Kristi went above and beyond to help me with aspects of what was needed, always putting my needs first. She returned my calls promptly and helped me with things I didn’t even know about. Without hesitation or reservation, I will recommend Kristi to all my family and friends who are looking to buy or sell a home – and I already have. I will definitely seek her out again for any/all real estate needs I have. I only wish I could buy and/or sell a home more frequently! What a great experience!! Kristi feels like family. ❤"
When our tight timeline went sideways because of a house that failed inspection, Kristi was there to walk us through every single step of what otherwise could have been a disaster. With her thorough experience and deft knowledge she was able to out-maneuver an opposing realtor, evacuate us from a bad deal, and land us in a better home all within a week. We are truly grateful for her expertise and thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Our little one liked Kristi a lot too, and Kristi did a great job making sure that the house tours were as interesting as they could be for our toddler — she even brought snacks! If we ever need to buy or sell in the Indy area again, Kristi will be our first choice, no contest.
Going through the home buying process for the first time, I did not really know what to expect a realtor to do for me. All I know is that Kristi Gaynor exceeded any expectations that I had. She first met with us and laid out what the process would look like, and she was there with us through all of the stages, always available to answer any questions. She is very friendly & is someone you feel good about having on your side when you are looking at properties. She would be the first person I recommend to anyone buying or selling a home.
My sister, brother-in-law, and I think Kristi was a true blessing as our realtor. Kristi was not only very knowledgeable and professional but also very compassionate in navigating the process and journey for the sale of our deceased Father’s Estate. The hurdles we had to pass through were made so much easier under Kristi’s guidance, concern, and care. She sold the treasured home in a matter of just a few hours! We recommend Kristi highly. She made us feel like family and the most important client she has ever had in each interaction we had with her. Kristi made this so very easy!!
Knowledgeable, diligent, honest, accessible, dedicated…all the qualities you strive to find in your real estate agent. Kristy Gaynor not only possesses them ALL but also is blessed with wonderful communication and negotiating skills to be the best advocate for her clients and their needs. Filled with positive encouragement, quick with a warm smile, and compassionate when you need to “keep looking for the perfect place,” Kristy is the realtor you want (and need). She will quickly become your new friend in the process!
Working with Kristi during the sale of my mom’s house was definitely a bright spot in the process. She was quick to get a handy man to the house when we had a couple of small issues and worked to ensure that as the sellers, we quickly got a good price for the property and felt good about how the buyer was treated. Kristi is always very positive and professional in her work interactions, It’s no wonder she has had tremendous growth in her business over the last few years! Her energy and ethics are admirable.
Kristi went above and beyond for us in all aspects of our search for a home. We were new to Indianapolis and also did not quite know what we wanted. We went back and forth on whether we should live in midtown, the suburbs, rent for a year, or build. Despite our indecisiveness, Kristi was on top of it all. She showed us everything we wanted, always in a timely manner, and knew our preferences. Kristi went out of her way through the whole process, and I have never worked with a realtor who was so helpful. Kristi was incredibly knowledgeable about neighborhoods, Indianapolis life, schools, and really anything we asked about. Even after we moved in, and in the months after, Kristi has gone above and beyond for us to ensure we are fitting into our community and have what we need for our home. If we move again, we would 100% want to work with Kristi and I have already recommended her to our close friends and family members!
When our neighbors moved, they told us that if ever plan to move we MUST USE Kristi Gaynor, and then they continued to rave about her for the next several minutes. 3 years later when we were ready to move, we called Kristi and immediately understood the high praise.
Kristi intently listens to her clients' needs vs wants. She is well intentioned and acts as an advisor all throughout. It's clear she is a life-long student of her industry and is always staying up to date on trends, using those to create the best buying and selling strategy for her customers. As a client, you can feel her level of care. Her level of service is exceptional.
Within 10 days of sitting down to discuss what we were looking for, she showed us ONE house (which was pre-market- not even listed yet) that checked every box on our long list of "wants/needs" and we bought it! She is extremely well-connected in the Meridian Kessler community. There isn't a single service for which she doesn't have an excellent referral.
Kristi, First of all, thank you for all of your support in getting the house ready to sell, suggesting that we stage the house, and spreading the word to all your connections in the business. Your professional and sunny disposition made both myself and Steve think that you were going to do everything in your power to get the house sold quickly. And that you did... You communicated to the interested parties and you found us the perfect family for the house. Steve loved how quickly you always got back to him and that you always knew someone that could repair anything needed at a more reasonable cost. Hard to believe that you were able to have 4 different interested parties and the house sold unbelievably quick in just the weekend; it sold for more than list. You know your stuff and I trust you for all future real estate needs... We loved working with you... It has been a pleasure and a true partnership.
Kristi is beyond a fantastic realtor... that is always on top of the market, she is a FANTASTIC person. Very humble and grateful. When a lot of balls are in the air from both sides...seller and buyer she is calm and professional because she is always well prepared for next steps. We love Kristi!!
IT ONLY TAKES ONE!
This quickly became our motto after we listed our home with Kristi. A subtle reminder to keep the high stress of selling one’s home to a minimum. Kristi played an integral role to ensure we had an awesome home, that showed well and was priced right for the market.
She assessed our home, highlighting where we should invest to maximize our market potential. We committed to executing the plan and she identified wonderful resources, to include the best multi-talented home repair guru, to complete work affordably and promptly.
Given we were transitioning to a new state, Kristi went above and beyond; collecting mail, supervising work, cutting on lights and removing trash bins from the curb! We created a wonderful, respectful collaboration that allowed us to sell our home. Kristi helped us to superbly navigate this high stress time...It Only Takes One! Thanks Kristi, you are the best!
"We have had the pleasure of working with Kristi on two purchases over the last three years. Kristi has been phenomenal to work with! She is extremely respectful, efficient and responsive in her communication, which are critical elements when purchasing a new home. We knew we could trust her at every step along the way and felt confident with her advice. Thank you for an amazing experience, Kristi!”
We had a great experience working with Kristi to buy our first home. Kristi went above and beyond to always meet us promptly and help us understand and be realistic about our purchase. Kristi cares about her clients deeply and I know she always had our interests at heart. We could not be more excited and comfortable with our first home purchase, thanks to Kristi.
Kristi is amazing and sincere!
Kristi Gaynor is an amazing realtor who recently assisted our family in finding our perfect home while living 600 miles away. Once we decided to relocate to Indianapolis, we reached out to family and friends for realtor recommendations. We met with and toured area listings with a few different realtors, but quickly knew that Kristi was the best out there and we were going to work well with her. Furthermore, hearing how Kristi assisted a close friend with the sale of her family’s home of 40+ years reinforced our decision.
Kristi, being a mother of 3 children, understood our family’s timeline and anxiety to relocate from 600 miles away and be settled for the start of school on August 1, with minimal disruption to family activities. Kristi appreciated that our children would participate in touring homes and used their feedback and enthusiasm to further identify possible listings. Kristi even brought snacks and activities for our boys! She listened closely to not only our children but us when we identified the home we knew we wanted and she moved expertly to successfully close the deal. There is no other realtor that we would rather work with, and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Indianapolis area!
We love Kristi Gaynor!
Kristi was referred to me by a good friend of mine. I was helping my son find his first home. Although I live in FL, and didn’t meet Kristi in person until the day of our closing, we felt a very strong connection to Kristi. So much of the home buying process happens after putting a home under contract. Kristi was wonderful in helping negotiate our home purchase and then was and still is helping us with everything that we are in need of assistance on. I can’t stress enough that much of what we needed from Kristi happened after we selected a home to buy. She has been there every step of the way getting us thru the closing and is still helping with several referrals for some remodel work. We were fortunate to find such a great realtor and made a friend for years to come.
Rarely do I conduct business where my expectations are exceeded. Kristi exceeded my expectations! Tasks that I thought I would have to do were completed by Kristi. Her response time was incredible and most importantly, when we spoke, Kristi made me feel as if I was her only client and always, yes always, had a cheerful, positive, smiling personality. It was easy and honestly, it was fun to work with Kristi.
Kristi helped us through many difficult situations in a competitive market. She was supportive and gave us helpful information. She always listened to us and we never felt pressured to make a decision.
My wife and I moved to Indianapolis so I could take a new job. We knew little about the city. Kristi was an expert guide who listened to what we were looking for and led us to the best Indianapolis had to offer. She helped us navigate a challenging housing market and find new friends along the way. She was really helpful before, during, and after the sale. Thanks to her, we are off to a great start in our new home here in Indy.
Kristi is fantastic to work with! As a first time seller, she walked me through the process and was with me every step of the way. Her knowledge and expertise of the market led to multiple offers in less than a week. Throughout what can be a stressful situation, Kristi was communicative, patient, and reassuring. She went above and beyond!
Kristi was absolutely amazing to work with!! She was always available if we ever had any questions and went above and beyond to make sure we fully understood the process. This was my first time ever selling a home, and I will admit that before going into it I was nervous because it seemed like such a daunting process. Kristi alleviated those fears immediately by thoroughly explaining the process every single step of the way. Not only that, but she went above and beyond in making sure we had everything ready before we listed our home by giving us recommendations that helped us get more offers/money. The cherry on top was that we got multiple offers over our asking price and it's all thanks to Kristi. 5 stars and I 100% recommend you work with her!
Kristi is great to work with. She loves getting to know her clients to help them determine the best decision about purchasing a home for them. If you weren’t friends with Kristi before you started your search for a new home, you soon will be whether you purchase a new home or not. Kristi did not pressure us at all on any decisions. She worked within our comfort level. Her communication and flexibility was great. She has a very cheerful and calming personality, that helps manage the stress of the home search, sale and purchase. She is thoughtful and thorough and showed us homes we were interested in seeing before we were even sure we wanted to make a move. We highly recommend her.
I can't say enough great things about Kristi Engle Gaynor and the service that she offered my family this spring as we were selling our home and buying a new home. With 4 kiddos 5 and under, we were prepared for a highly stressful and frustrating process regardless of who we contracted with as a realtor. We've gone through the same process before with no kids, and it was still stressful. Brienn Darr and I have both said to each other "I'm not sure how we could have done this without Kristi". While we were looking at homes Kristi would find a room to play with our kiddos while we would look around so that we could focus, she was very responsive with any questions that we had, she allowed us to make decisions but was assertive enough to steer us back on track when she felt necessary and her calls were correct in hindsight. Her network of professionals that she refers are also top notch. Chad Fallis for example and CrossCountry Mortgage, Inc. - Indianapolis were awesome on the mortgage side of things. Frazier Moving Services too. I've heard it said that realtors are a necessary evil, and in some cases that is probably true. This is far from the case with Kristi, we will work w/ her for any future real estate needs and will recommend her to any who ask. The process that she guided us through made it clear she understands what a good client experience requires. And thank you Jason Barnaby for connecting us!
Kristi was such an amazing realtor to work with during my home search. She was so helpful in every aspect of the process. She was always available and prompt whenever I reached out to her via email or phone. If there was something she couldn't answer immediately, she always made sure to follow-up asap. She was a professional in every sense of the word. It was a particularly hectic time for me, as I was simultaneously in the process of selling my old house. She gave me candid advise about that process and made sure I was doing everything right. She knows the industry inside out and is very well connected. I couldn't have worked with a better person, and I am so happy to be residing in my current home, which she helped me buy. You will not be disappointed if you work with Kristi in purchasing or selling your home. She will get the job done and more!!
Standing on the ledge of a very steep real estate decision I knew I had to jump or be stuck forever. The reality is I’m in my 60s and holding the future of my family in my hands. I have lived in my home for 20 years and was scared to death. Knowing NOTHING of selling or buying a home I reached out to Kristi. Long story short, I am now living in the house I always wanted, loving it, enjoying my family more than ever. But, about Kristi. She held my hand, even while she was out of town and I would “freak out,” she was there without a delay. Her references for all aspects of buying a home, from financing, to inspection, and those details that make you nervous SHE WAS A PHONE CALL AWAY!! And the best thing I can say is that even at closing she was ahead of all of it. She had stopped by MY new house to make sure every detail was in order before she met with us to close. But the sweetest thing, she knew I had been very sad to leave my mature clematis plants. What did I find on my porch on that life renewing day...CLEMATIS'!!! She will with her exuberance, honesty, integrity and pure love for people give you her “MOST EXCELLENT” best to insure your next “MOVE” in your life. Barbara A. Cahall
If you are looking for a Real Estate Broker who embodies honesty, integrity, passion, active listening, and high skills, then Kristi Gaynor is the perfect choice. Kristi has a rare gift when serving her clients; she always has time for you and manages expectations with finesse. While selling a home we had for 43 years, Kristi truly listened and shaped our ideas of a perfect home sale. We discovered quickly she is adept at finding creative concepts which made our initial approach grow even stronger. Kristi overwhelmingly exceeded our top goals. We sold our home quickly and with no unforeseen challenges. Kristi monitored every detail from day one to closing. I can truly attest to the ease of working with Kristi. The skills she brings to any challenge from addressing an old oil storage tank in the backyard, burying gutter lines, removing old carpet, and countless other items in preparation to have a smooth home inspection, are vast. Kristi had the right contacts and referrals to get the jobs done. All with an attentive eye on deadlines and a smart approach to match the current market conditions. Kristi has a solid relationship with her peers which enhanced the awareness of our home to potential buyers, making us feel at ease with the process of opening and showcasing our house. The bonus with Kristi is you will have a new friend! She will always be professional, true and attentive in her advice. But you will not feel like a number, you will be treated like family. I don’t have a rolodex of names for the future. I only need one when we have another need for the best Real Estate Broker for another project. Kristi Gaynor.
We couldn't be happier choosing Kristi as our agent in Indianapolis! We may purchase more properties in the Indy area over the next few years, and we plan to come back to Kristi for every purchase. She knows a lot about the area and always found information when we needed it. Kristi will take the time to understand your wants and needs in a home, and has an incredible team behind her. She was easy to reach through texts, emails, and phone calls throughout our home-buying process. Don't hesitate for a second to give her a call!
I can not say enough about the personal attention I received on my first visit to Indianapolis from Kristi. We had communicated via email and telephone prior to meeting in person so when we finally met face to face, it was like seeing a friend again. Kristi had listened to my concerns and expectations and spent what I am sure were countless hours previewing just the right neighborhoods and homes to show me. I have no doubt she will find me just what I am looking for and I feel like I have made a great new friend! Moving to a new city is difficult but Kristi’s professionalism, knowledge and personal interest and concern have really eased my mind.
Kristi was our realtor this past fall/ winter. She was AMAZING! She really helped us understand everything as we were first time home buyers. She really made her self available and always replied to our many emails in a timely manner. Kristi seriously made a huge difference in our home buying experience. She walked us through when we went to go look at house and what all those paper were we were signing. She is always ready to work and has a great personality and is one of the kindest people I know! If you are looking for a realtor talk with Kristi, she will help you find the home of your dreams!
Kristi was our realtor this past spring. This was our 1st home buying experience and we had had such a hard time finding our 1st house prior to working with Kristi. When we called Kristi and set up our first showing with her, it seemingly from there on our fell into place! We managed to buy the very first house we put an offer in with Kristi's help. She was amazing through the offer and closing process! She listened to each question, concern and idea we had and handled everything seamlessly. We are now settled into our 1st home, and have Kristi to thank!! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy, hardworking, and compassionate realtor.
In buying: Kristi Gaynor takes a genuine interest in her clients. She wants to know all about you so that she can tailor her efforts to best meet your needs. I have worked side-by-side Kristi and know that she cares passionately about her work and the positive outcomes that she can create for her clients.
In selling: My fantastic realtor helped me to sell my condo in hours—in the middle of winter, the “slow season”! If you are thinking of selling, contact Kristi Kristi Engle Gaynor at Tucker!
Kristi was our real estate agent this spring for our move from Massachusetts to Indianapolis. We couldn’t have imagined a better experience and home buying result than what we had with Kristi. She took the time to understand us and what our house needs are and didn’t waste our time looking at homes that didn’t fit us, or trying to push us into a house that exceeded our price range. She did her homework, knows the neighborhoods we were interested in, and did everything she said she would do. We felt like Kristi was our partner in the process; she was a true professional. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
Kristi is the most reliable, kind and sweet realtor. Also very quickly to get back to you and meet your needs for a home. She helped me through the process of finding and affordable home in such a little time. She works hard to make sure her clients get a professional service!
