What’s It Like To Work With Kristen?

“We have had the opportunity to use Kristen for 3 transactions over the last year and a half. Un-matched knowledge, patience, understanding, creative, proactive are just a few of the words I would use to describe our experience. The 3 transactions all had their issues and Kristen never wavered from professional advice and direction, offering creative solutions, while always respecting our decisions. The issues never caused her to falter while always remaining positive and encouraging. She’s the up-most professional. You can tell with Kristen, she’s not just looking to close the sale, she cares.”

“It was very difficult to sell our family home. Kristen Rishe from North Fork Real Estate was amazing throughout the entire process. She gave me solid advice, was always available to answer any questions and communicated extremely well with me. Kristen was very sensitive to the fact that selling the house was difficult for me and was very compassionate and caring. When I buy my retirement home, it will be with Kristen Rishe and North Fork Real Estate.”


“After 27 years in the home that we loved, we made the emotional decision to relocate. The neighboring business simply made it unbearable for us to remain.

Kristen Rishe was our saving grace. Her empathy, patience, knowledge, and professionalism guided us through the process of selling our existing home and purchasing a new one.

We would use her again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend her services to our family and friends.”

“Kristen recently sold our house in Southold. We originally meet her as buyers when she helped us find the house. When we wanted to sell there was no one else we would have called. Working with her was amazing. She was professional, courteous and managed to oversee all of the many details involved in selling the house. We had a buyer within a few weeks. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property as well as anyone looking to buy.”
