Kristen joined the real estate world with 14 years of experience in family counseling. The skills she gained in listening, interpreting, advocating and negotiating couldn’t have been better preparation for guiding clients through the journey that is home-buying and selling in Kansas City. Growing up just outside of the metro area, Kristen spent her childhood exploring the Kansas City area before moving to the metro in her young adult life, where she continues to reside.
Kristen has been an active investor in real estate since 2008. She has experience in the different facets of residential real estate investing and currently carries a portfolio of her own investment properties. After a career split in both real estate investing and counseling she decided to weave the skills she learned while counseling with her knowledge of the real estate investing world and her passion to help others to begin her real estate career. She began with a plan to learn as much as she could and find the best mentor in the field. She implemented the plan and found the best mentor. She hit the ground running and hasn’t looked back. Her clients love her propensity for finding a win-win in every real estate situation.
When Kristen is not assisting her real estate clients, she enjoys spending time with her family, kayaking, running and pretty much anything outdoors. You will often find her volunteering her time with the local Habitat for Humanity community or coaching a Girls on the Run group.
