I really think you should use Kiki and Kristina for your real estate transaction! Just go ahead and use them! You will be glad you did! Here are some reasons: Lots of people in Albuquerque just seem to be a bit slow and unmotivated. It's the land of manana and low expectations. I've seen this in other realtors I've interacted with here. Kiki and Kristina are not like this. I think it helps that they've had experience in other more competitive fields like acting, marketing, and entrepreneurship and in other cities like Los Angeles. They are sharp, strategic, and hustlers. They will WORK for you. This is especially important when selling a house, as we were. Going back to how they have experience in other fields: I've never seen any other realtors do such a good job at marketing when selling a house. Kiki has a degree in marketing, and it shows! They do online marketing and SEO; they write really engaging and creative home descriptions; they make amazing home videos. They also think through what the buyer must be thinking and wanting. Every engagement with a potential buyer (whether online, through answering their realtor’s questions, etc.) becomes an opportunity to show how your home can match up with their needs. It’s a really different approach than just slapping a listing price on a house and having an open house and waiting. I think their approach helped to get our home under contract within two days and for much higher than we had expected it to sell for. Kristina did an amazing job negotiating our home sale price and terms of sale. We got everything we wanted and more. Top-notch negotiating skills. She is a very smart person and did a great job on this. Lastly, they and their team are just easy and painless to work with. They are kind, engaging people and their team is professional. They responded quickly and thoroughly to all our questions and never left us hanging. We had about the easiest, most fun home sale experience possible. Just go ahead and use them as realtors!
K2 is extremely knowledgeable of the local area and their team is top-notch. Communication is of extreme importance to me, even if no action is occurring, and K2 excelled in keeping me informed. I received feedback immediately after a showing and their negotiations were on-point. K2 was also very helpful during the inspection process by working with the inspectors to get the inspections done quickly, and the interactions on the financing side of a real estate transaction were very efficient - they knew exactly what was needed to get thru closing quickly & smoothly. The house they sold for me was a very unique house: over $600,000, on a steep dirt road, and 100% off-grid with no connection to PNM. We listed it for one year with our first horrible offer 7.5 months after we listed. We said no to the offer and it was another 1.5 months before we had another horrible offer. We let the listing expire and re-listed with K2 about 5 months later after interviewing 6 different Realtors. K2 stood out with the plan for marketing our house so we selected them and within three weeks we had our first full-price offer!! Although this sale fell thru because of the buyers K2 had another full price offer three weeks later and this was during the Christmas 2020 holiday season. THANK YOU Kiki & Kristina, and your team, for all your help in selling our home and helping us buy our current home. We look forward to working with you again.
We highly recommend K-2 Realty. Kristina was our agent when we moved to Tijeras, NM and our agent when we needed to sell our home a year later. When we moved to Tijeras, Kristina helped us execute a 2 week closing and get us into our home quickly. When we found out that we needed to move again, Kristina was very responsive and was able to support us finding a buyer within the same day as listing our home. WOW! Everything worked smoothly. We were faced with a few challenges that popped up. Yet, Kristina met them head on, kept an open line of communication, and was there for us every step of the way. She is truly an amazing professional and is a great advocate for her clients. If we ever come back to New Mexico, we would be sure to use her or one of the K-2 Team again!

I would like to say that I have never met anyone who are more dedicated to their clients than Kiki and Kristina. They sold our house in 2 weeks!!! I would and have recommended this hard working, highly motivated, and caring couple to anyone buying and selling a home. Plus they are loving parents and lots of fun while being totally professional. So, if you are hunting for a realtor please contact Kristina and Kiki you'll really enjoy the task of selling or buying your home. Also the staff is just as great as they are.
- K. Casicole
Kiki and Kristina contacted us immediately after numerous inquiries went unanswered by other realtors. We were treated like family by this wonderful team. They answered all our questions and if they didn't know the answer, they found it out. We love this young professional couple and would highly recommend them to anyone needing help in this area of New Mexico.

There is no way in the world I could possibly say enough good things about this amazing realty team. I am extremely picky and extremely frugal. In other words, a realtor's nightmare. This was a process a year In the making but my realty team was extremely patient and professional during the entire process. At no time was I ever rushed or pressured to make a decision. They never turned down a request, no matter how ludicrous. The best way to sum up this experience was that I felt cared for and valued throughout the whole process. Just as important, I always felt that they were acting in my best interest and were watching out for my future. Kiki and Kristina are simply the best!
I honestly don't even know how to put into words everything Kristina and Kiki did for us! I guess long story short...I ended up in the middle of a nightmare when trying to purchase a K2 listing (due to my own agent, NOT THEM) but regardless of the battle they faced with my agent they never quit doing what was best for ME as a buyer on the opposite side of the table from them. After the ongoing battle I did not feel safe in my purchase under my own agent...and I am so thankful that K2 realty stepped up and not only protected me as a buyer but protected me from a nightmare contract that my own agent wrote. On top of them holding my hand through the process, they were the two who flipped the house that is my dream home! Kiki's attention to detail in construction is just as impressive as Kristina's vision. Things they could have easily turned a blind eye to (stuff I as a buyer AND the inspector didn't even notice) Kiki was right there fixing while the signing was taking place. I can't express how grateful I am for these two, and the loads of extra work they did just to make sure we got our dream home! And their friendship is just another bonus!! I am the prime example of how hard things can be if you put your trust into the wrong agent...I will always recommend K2 as my #1 realty team!! Their honesty and dedication is far beyond the rest.
Buying a house has all the factors to destroy your faith in humanity. I fumbled around with friends ...family friend, friends of uncles who were in the business. Needless to say I was looking for a year to buy a house in Albuquerque that fit my needs. Luck brought me to the K2 Realty team. And as luck would have it after a few conversations with them, they had orchestrated the perfect match to my housing dreams and needs. I work crazy hours , and the constant updates and contact with " my team " was not limited to 9 to 5 Monday through Friday. Try 842 Sunday night! A quick response and professional handling of all my house buying needs. If you want the best..look no further .
If you don't contact this team to buy or sell your home, shame on you! Not only will you receive the utmost of excellence in knowledge and expertise in the realty market, but you receive personal commitment and integrity. Every step of our buying process was communicated ASAP and they were available to answer and act upon any question or concern we had within minutes. We have never dealt with such a team of dedicated young people who really do care about our needs and produce results that in today's world are often rare to find. I am a very critical person by choice, but dealing with Kristina and Kiki I can do nothing but be most appreciative and thankful they handled our purchase. If you demand the best as you should, then contact the best.

K2 Realty was with me from the first house we looked at and every house after that through 2 visits from Phoenix. The 2nd visit proved to be wonderful! We found the perfect home for us! From that point on the K2 team worked with us on each and everything that came up and answered all our questions. They did it through long distance. I would recommend this team to anyone!
Kiki and Kristina along with the entire K2 realty team went above and beyond for us. From the first visit, to the closing, they never stopped working to sell our home. The expectations given to us were never exaggerated to influence our decision to choose them. The communication was incredible. they sent us videos prior to the sale giving us tips on how to stage our home. We were informed at every step with what was happening and what to expect next. The pictures that were taken were absolutely amazing. The video of our home was top notch. They were even kind enough to get us an album of all the photos that were taken of the house and property which meant so much to my family and I. It was difficult for my wife and I to sell this home because of how we had created such a beautiful life there with our children. But, I knew they could see that by The way They cared for my family and I during the process and made it obvious that we were not just another client to them. They truly treated us as family. Thank you K2 realty team for the love and care that you showed my family and for helping us start a new adventure.
I worked with Kristina & Kiki to purchase my foster sisters first home and really can’t say enough good things about them. They are very knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with their time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months) down to just before their wedding day. They answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Kristina & Kiki made it as painless and straightforward as possible. I highly recommend them. Without any hesitation they showed us many homes (as we were on a very tight budget) and the way they explain the details is truly awesome.
They are highly professional, very talented and organized in showing homes with our time schedules. They clearly understand our budget and boundaries, helped to find a nice home in a wonderful location. They helped us from the day one of our hunt to the closure. Kristina has great negotiation skills to work with sellers to carve you out financial benefits. Very interestingly, they helped us to find out a right lender who gave the nice deal. I really appreciate their patience to answer all our queries.
I highly recommend Kristina & Kiki to all our reference buyers, sellers and friends.
"My husband and I were relocating to New Mexico from Wyoming. Kristina did everything possible to help us find a home with an easy transition. We highly recommend using K2 Realty Team."
Kiki and Kristina were amazing people to work with!! I would highly recommend working with them if you are looking at buying a house!! They were both easy to get a hold of anytime that I had questions for any part of the process! They will do anything to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your decision!!
Kiki and Kristina were phenomenal! They were available to show us properties or answer questions at the drop of a hat. They made recommendations in our best interest regarding the asking price of homes. They were expeditious with all paperwork and were reassuring through our entire process of purchasing a house. They are extremely knowledgeable and easily establish a rapport. We highly recommend them! Thank you K2 realty, we love our home!!

Kristina and Kiki were extremely friendly, professional, responsive, patient, and helpful. They went out of their way to assist in the understanding of the process. I had a difficult home to sell in that it was an older home in need of repairs - some of which were made and some of which were negotiated. I greatly appreciate the time they took with me and the fact that the home sold prior to the end of December and the dead of winter. I was late in getting it on the market in the summer. Much thanks!
I just moved to New Mexico just under 2 months now and guess what I own a home! Before I moved here, I reached out to Kris via email and sent her all my requests. She was able dial in my requests and put me in good hands with a great loan officer that made it happen. I was able to handle my paperwork and get a preapproval prior to my move date. From the start both her and her husband Kiki, were able to help me with all my random questions and made me feel at ease...1st time homebuyer stuff. It was a fun time and I would definitely recommend there services. Now just working on the property and may get it to flip, hope they are up to selling it =)
We listed our home with Kiki and Kristina and the home was sold in just a few short weeks. They kept us informed of the progress of the sale all the way through to closing. They were very easy to work with, and were very easy to get in contact with when we needed anything. Would recommend them to anybody wanting to buy or sell a home in the Albuquerque area.
-Jim & Jeanette
They made the process less stressful. They were extremely helpful and were there with us in every step. If you need a team to sell your home, you need to call K2. Get the professional service with a team that cares as a friend.
-Krista & Teri
I am a 24 year old first home buyer and went into the home buying process very nervous with little knowledge on how to buy a house. Kristina was there by my side, there to answer my calls or texts at any time of day, every day. She made my home buying experience a lot less stressful and confusing. She is organized, experienced, persistent, down to earth, and always seemed happy to help me with anything. I don’t think I could have found a better realtor. 10/10 would recommend choosing to by a home with Kristina Salcido. #K2Realty. Huge thank you to her.
The experience could not have been better. They were on Top of everything. They answered EVERY question I had. I now have a house I'm very proud of calling MY HOME. I would have never made it though the tough closing processes with out them! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a HOME!!
It was a true pleasure working with Kristina & Kiki, both are very friendly, knowledgeable, available, professional and accessible. The purchase of my home was a great experience. I would recommend Kristina & Kiki without hesitation to my family and friends. If you’re looking for agents you can trust to put you first and not their own interest that truly care about what they do and the people they do it for... bar none Kristina and Kiki should be your first choice. Thank you for all of your help not only for helping me find the perfect home, but for walking me through the process.
Very helpful every step of the way. Helped me through the process of VA Housing loans. Although there was a lot to deal with, we always felt like we were in good hands with Kristina. She was also very patient in accommodating my busy schedule and travels. Extremely quick and proficient with paperwork. I would recommend her to any military or veteran searching for a home!
Kiki and Kristina are the best! We started the process months ago and they were so patient. Every time I had a question, they had an answer and if they didn’t, they got one. They were available any time I needed them. I have never purchased a home before but they made it so easy to understand and really kept me calm through the whole thing. I promise you won’t be disappointed. They are fantastic!
These two are amazing. It's lucky to have one good person in your corner with real estate transactions these days, we had two! Couldn't ask for more knowledgeable, honorable representation. After everything was said and done, our agents became our friends.
-Tucker & Emily
K2 Realty did a fantastic job getting our home sold. They were eager, energetic and went above and beyond the title of Realtor! They introduced innovative ideas to bring in all types of buyers and put some excitement back into a very stale market. I highly recommend them!
Kristina and Kiki showed us an incredible amount of houses before we found our winner. We are so glad we did such an intensive search. I don't think any other realtor would have been so thorough. For us, this was an essential element for finding the right house. They also sold our house for us and worked very hard to get is sold for the right amount.
-Tom & Gael
Kiki & Kristina made our Home Purchase back in June smooth and flawless. With any issue that came up, they were already in the process of fixing it and they negotiated a contract that was great for my wife & I as well as the Sellers to create a win-win outcome. We cannot recommend them enough and have sent them to everyone we know! Their speedy response times and care were exactly what we were looking for. And we even closed early!
-Michael & Lauren
Very professional, honest and ethical. They are very attentive to details and always respond quickly to your questions. Extremely hard working and they are very nice people. They helped us buy a home and they sold our old home. I will always use them for my real estate transactions.
-Bob & Juanita
Helped me locate and purchase a condo with minimum problems. Kiki shared his practical experience and Kristina made the purchase go through smoothly. Were very accessible!
