More About Me


As co-founder of Novella, Kristal Kraft is an experienced agent whose creativity, ingenuity and sincerity have made her one of the best in the business. After embarking on her real estate career in 1984, Kristal quickly established herself as a competent and resourceful Realtor. Committed to improving her skills while contributing to the community, Kristal co-owned a brokerage in 1986 and served as President of Colorado’s Certified Residential Specialist’s Colorado Chapter. Kristal specializes in relocation to and from the Denver metro area. By taking classes and meeting rigorous criteria, she became a Certified International Property Specialist, allowing her to work with international buyers. As an early achiever of RE/MAX’s 100% Club designation and a former president of the Pike’s Peak Women’s Council of REALTORS, Kristal has contributed to her industry while climbing the heights in sales production.


Kristal has a strong spirit of entrepreneurship. Sensing the future impact of the online world, she was one of the first REALTOR’s to make extensive use of computers in her business. As an early entrant in the website sweepstakes, Kristal was a beta tester of the first real estate database program in 1987. She taught herself to build websites and has attained certified proficiency in website development. Within her consumer-oriented websites, Kristal anticipates buyer questions in order to facilitate research and education. She continues to build websites in the hope of increasing relevant knowledge and improving the home-search experience.

In addition to keeping pace with technology, Kristal places great emphasis on honesty and integrity; she keeps her word and follows through with her promises. Devoted to her clients’ best interest, she prioritizes their needs and shuns manipulative sale techniques. Her success is the result of hard work and uncompromisingly high standards, both personally and professionally. Kristal is friendly and approachable. She takes time to address questions, whether her client is searching for a second dream home or is a young, first-time buyer. She enjoys working with both buyers and sellers — her great intuition and years of experience make her an excellent asset in either situation. Throughout her career, Kristal has focused on delivering attentive personal service.


A native of Farmingdale, N.J. (exit 100!), Kristal moved to Colorado in 1975. While she devotes many hours to her clients, she enjoys spending time with her three grown children, Zack, Vali, and Rich. Kristal has seven Grandsons and three Granddaughters. When time permits, she and her husband and business partner, Larry McGee, enjoy a relaxing round of golf. In 2000, she bicycled around the world, visiting 47 countries on 6 continents. The year-long trip represented the fulfillment of a lifelong dream, although Kristal still hopes to someday bicycle on Antarctica. In addition to exotic world travel, she also likes to visit family in New Jersey and tries to return to the Garden State at least once a year. Kristal and Larry own a home in Lone Tree.
