Local Neighborhood Expert

Communications Specialist

Interior Designer

As a Brigham Young University graduate, my degree may be in communications, but my passion has always been for design. My history as a full time mom has allowed me to raise my 4 amazing children in the best city in the world - sunny San Diego.

I am an adventure seeker, avid beach goer, fitness junkie and have an ongoing love affair with travel and exploration. Each day, I make strides to connect with my fellow neighbor, thriving on customer service, care, and attention to detail. My passion for design has lead me to my career in sales, selling Real Estate in the place I've been able to call home for 24+ years.

My hopes as your local Realtor, is not just to become your go-to resource for information, but to create bonds that surpass each and every closed transaction. I am down to Earth, familiar with our wonderful city, and have an outstanding ability to relate to others.

Kris Gelbart & Associates Testimonials


Working with Kris was a first class experience. We saw 20-30 properties in 60 days, during which time Kris educated us about the north county market and the nuances of purchasing real property in California. She steered us away from properties with red flags and towards those best suited to our needs. She was always easy to reach and became a genuine friend during the process. Her experience and charisma made our 30 day escrow period not only possible but also painless. Kris has been committed to us even In the weeks since our deal closed. She referred us to a few of her preferred contractors, which saved big money and made one point very clear; We have a GREAT real estate agent to work with whenever the time comes.

Kris is the best! She had our house sold in only a few days. I would totally recommend her. She is also super cool. The whole process is stressful and tedious but she helped us out a lot. Things went pretty smooth and we closed in just over 30 days. She is very knowledgeable and very friendly.

Kris was great and helped us through every step of the way in finding and purchasing our home. She was knowledgeable and very responsive. She developed a good relationship with the seller's agent which I think led to our offer being accepted in a multiple offer situation. I would highly recommend her.

Kris went above and beyond helping me find my house and the purchase it!! I was only in town for one week and the went back overseas. Everything was done perfectly to handle the sale with me not being there! Thank you so much for the awesome service!

I contacted Kris on the recommendation of a friend and could not be happier with the outcome. Kris made this first time home seller's experience easy and stress-free. Who knew that was possible! Personable, professional and collaborative. Her input was spot on. The house sold very fast and for the asking price. Doesn't get much better than that!

Kris was amazing to work with. She negotiated an awesome deal for me and my fiance's first home. She assisted with all the escrow and advised us on all paperwork etc. She helped us along every step of the way and even bought us a couple really nice home-warming gifts. Kris is the best! I would highly recommend her for all your realtor needs!!

Want it sold, call Kris Gelbart! Easy to work with and market knowledgeable. Worked with professional stager and held open house, had great color flyer to help present the property. Very professional.

Kris was awesome. She was great to work with and definitely would go to bat for us. I would use Kris again in a heartbeat! If I could have done this process over again I would have had her represent us in buying our new home also. Although she still helped us a lot during that process.

Kris was extremely knowledgeable about our area and the market, which helped to show and sell our home in the best way possible. Kris was professional and helpful every day of the process, and always responsive and willing to assist with whatever came up - paperwork or people or offers/counteroffers. I believe her extensive background with the business side of real estate transactions really helped us when needed. From the beginning (marketing tools and strategies) through showings and open houses and then accepting the right offer and working through the escrow closing, Kris was the absolute best agent. And she always had a smile and cheery message. It was wonderful knowing that we had a brilliant and super competent pro on our side each day.

Kris Gelbart is an amazing realtor! She is very organized, thorough, reliable, timely, knowledgeable, and personable. She knows the ins and outs and will answer as many questions you have and guide you along in the process. She's well-liked by everyone and is easy to work with. We will definitely use Kris Gelbart for our real estate needs in the future!
