A little bit about me...
Customer satisfaction is my #1 goal and it is driven by a passion for excellence. Buyers can expect to be educated and informed, with resources provided along the way, to ensure that each step brings them closer to their next home. Sellers can expect a strategic approach to listing their home for sale that includes a comprehensive marketing strategy with proven success that uses the latest technology to attract as many potential buyers as possible. Kristen began her career in Real Estate as an Office/Marketing Manager for Top-Producer, Stacy Barry. First-hand experience taught her what it takes to be a great Realtor. She received her Bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in Bloomington and has professional experience in architectural interior design and project management. Her management skills are utilized to ensure that your real estate transaction flows smoothly from beginning to end. “The best part about this business is a heartfelt ‘thank you’ from my client(s) and a smile on their face when the deal is done.”
Since I got into the business, I have always been at Century 21 Scheetz and part of the Stacy Barry Team. Our team has received numerous awards for excellence in real estate for both customer service and sales production. I'm proud to be a part of this team! Prior to real estate, I was an interior designer for a custom cabinetry manufacturing facility. I am a freelance interior designer for a few architects and home remodeling contractors - its my first love!
A Few Recent Testimonials:
Kristen was great! She kept me in the loop with everything and always responded quickly to my questions. Also she had wonderful recommendations for who to use for my lender and home inspector. Susan Nemeth and her team at Stonegate Mortgage were fabulous! Stonegate kept in touch regularly and never missed a beat with all the paperwork and made sure I knew what to do and what was going on. The inspector was very knowledgable and gave me TONS of helpful tips for taking care of my new home. Kristen and the recommendations she had for the other parties involved were great, I can't really say enough. My entire experience from start to finish was fun, easy and exciting. Kristen was genuinely excited for me to become a first time homeowner and paid attention to the important things I was looking for in a home, it was nice knowing that I have a realtor who cares. And that's the way it should be!
Being a first time home buyer, I didn’t have a lot of experience with Realtors and the home buying process. I did some research, reached out to a few Realtors and by far, Kristen was the most knowledgeable, responsive, professional and friendly. She kept us informed, helped us through the entire process and made it a great experience. Kristen offered great recommendations and referrals that proved to be very competitive and reliable – one of those being a lender who was also wonderful! I’ve had family and friends who have purchased recently and none of them have had as smooth of a transaction. Not only is Kristen a great Realtor, but she’s truly a wonderful person. I will without a doubt recommend Kristen!
Stacy Barry and Kristen Yazel are an amazing team in the real estate industry. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and went above and beyond during my home purchase. They listened to my wants, they search only houses that fit my needs and accommodated my hectic schedule. They were there whenever I had questions and quickly provided answers. I don't think anyone has experienced a smoother home process. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sale in the area.
Stacy and Kristen made a difficult transition for our family much easier for us. My wife and kids were back home as I looked for a new house while getting acquainted to a new area. Stacy was very flexible with my schedule and was very knowledgable of the entire area. We looked at a lot of houses and she gave us a lot of advise as to how to narrow down our choices and focus on what was most important to our family. The decision ended up being very easy. She got us through a bidding situation and the closing was easy. I would highly recommend the Stacy Barry Team for residential realty needs in Hamilton County and northen Indianapolis area.
This was the first time I dealt with Kristen, she exceeded my expectations. Kristen has always followed up promptly on matters, she was willing to accommodate my needs in terms of timing, location, and property selection. She understood excatly what I was looking for and focused on my needs. The search and buying went very smooth and I was able to close on the exact dates I requested. I enjoyed working with Kristen and I would definitely select her again and again for my next purchase.
In June 2013, Kristen Yazel helped us find a family friendly place in downtown Indianapolis. We are just on the edge of what is officially known as the Lockerbie Square neighborhood. We absolutely love our new location! Although driving is just as convenient, we also frequently walk to Mas Avenue, our grocery store, as well as the YMCA that is in the Rathskeller/Aethaneum historic building. Kristen was an absolute joy to work with. She was very consistent in keeping in touch throughout our search, and even previewed all of the properties before we went to visit them. When it came time to make an offer, it was clear that she was knowledgeable and experienced in this area which we greatly appreciated. At the closing we had some conflicts arise with the way the seller was interpreting some of the line items in our contract. Kristen immediately stood up for her clients (us), and used awesome problem solving skills to prevent a delay of closing since there happened to be small discrepancy on the HUD settlement statement. I was extremely impressed from start to finish and would highly recommend her to anyone.

As first time home buyers, Kristen was there everyday to answer all of our many questions! She helped guide us and find a house that was perfect for us. Kristen was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide recommendations for financing, appraisals, and inspections.
What I like most is that after a year later Kristen still keeps in touch to make sure we still like the house. I would recommend (and have recommended Kristen) to many people in the Indianapolis area.

Graduated from Indiana University with a B.S. in Interior Design
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors! I love to camp, hike and kayak! One of my other favorite activities is going to see live music and I love all genres! I am very close with my family and enjoy spending lots of time with them as well!
I was born and raised in Plymouth, Indiana located in the northern part of our great state. I am a Hoosier for life! I went to school and received my Bachelor of Science from Indiana University Bloomington in Interior Design. I moved to Indianapolis after college and worked as an Interior Designer for three years for a custom cabinet shop. I have been in the real estate industry ever since and I love the way my previous experience now compliments my real estate sales career.
In June 2012, we welcomed our first son into the world and I enjoy spending lots of quality time with my family. We have many good times together and really enjoy living in Carmel. We like taking walks on the Monon Trail and playing outside together with our beloved Brown Dog. We love going to concerts and state parks too!
