Top Agent Kristin A. Bergunder, of Century 21 Scheetz in Indianapolis, is that rare real estate professional who combines a wealth of industry knowledge, a warm and personable nature and a true desire to do what is best for each of her many grateful clients. Kristin’s triple-threat approach to her job – she also has extensive experience in the construction and design fields – makes her the ideal advisor to anyone trying to navigate the often-convoluted buying, selling, or investment process.
“My husband has a successful construction company, and I worked with him for some time,” says Kristin, “but I decided I wanted to do something for myself, so I started an interior design business.” Soon, recognizing that selling real estate would be a perfect complement to those endeavors, she obtained her license in 2017. “I felt like it all came full-circle, and it has been awesome,” she enthuses. Kristin found almost immediate success, and has developed a reputation as an agent who can be trusted to provide ethical and honest advocacy, whether it’s for buyers, sellers, or the many loyal investors who have chosen to work with her. “One of my strong suits is working with investors,” explains Kristin, “and I get a lot of repeat business from them.”
Focusing primarily on the Northern side of Indianapolis, Kristin has already built a solid foundation of referral-based business. When asked why she inspires such ardent loyalty, Kristin grows thoughtful for a moment before replying. “I think it’s because of my communication skills,” she says. “One of my biggest pet peeves is lack of communication. I believe communication is the foundation for strong relationships and a key component in building trust.” Kristin also points to her construction and design experience as assets that allow her to provide exceptional service. “It gives me a competitive edge,” she says. “I look at everything from a learning perspective, and I get really involved. I don’t mind getting down into crawl spaces or climbing into attics when there are inspection issues or things of that nature, because I learn from those experiences. My construction background allows me to spot red flags other agents might not, and I also have a wide variety of subcontractors and vendors that I’ve used in both the construction and design spectrums.”
Despite the financial rewards of a career in real estate, when asked what she enjoys most about what she does, Kristin points to the more personal side of the industry as providing the most job satisfaction. “When buying or selling a home, it can be an incredibly emotional experience for my clients,” she explains, “and it can be very stressful, so my goal is to alleviate as much stress as possible, and to try and make everything as fun as possible. Real estate agents aren’t just agents, we’re also counselors, mediators, and educators. My relationship with my clients start very early on in the process and extends well beyond the closing table.”
When Kristin isn’t working, she enjoys nothing more than spending time with her husband and young children, experiencing everything the Indianapolis area has to offer, including spending time outdoors in the regions many parks and nature preserves. She is also an ardent supporter of the local schools, and donates generously to her primary philanthropic passion, animal rescue.
Kristin has many ambitious plans for her future, including the possibility of exploring multiple investment opportunities with her husband. While she has no immediate desire to form a team, she does plan on continuing to grow her business, while also refining the incredible customer service that has become her stock in trade – all with the strong support of her brokerage. “I owe a lot of my success to them,” she says. “Century 21 Scheetz is top-notch when it comes to training and supporting their Realtors, all of whom are unbelievable when it comes to helping each other. The company is continually evolving and modifying processes in order to be better, and their efforts are greatly appreciated.”
