Kristin has been actively engaged in residential brokerage on the South Shore since 2005 and now have more than 30 years of sales and marketing experience. She believes buying or selling a home can be one of the most challenging experiences an individual can undertake, but with the right support, smart marketing and her innate desire to help, Kristin can make it a stress free, positive experience.
Let’s learn a little more about Kristin.
What is your favorite thing about being a Real Estate Agent?
Helping people – buyers, sellers and co-workers.
What do you enjoy doing outside of helping your clients buy or sell a home? What are some of your favorite hobby’s, activities, etc.?
I love anything that creates laughter, working in my yard, taking long walks/hikes in the forest, musicals, movies – action, sci fi and psychological thrillers, board games, puzzles and, of course, spending time with family and friends, especially my boys.
What do you love most about the South Shore/Plymouth County?
Being close to the water and the quaintness of the communities. It feels like I’m always at a vacation destination but I don’t have to endure the crazy congestion that comes with tourist attractions.
Share with us a memorable moment in your Real Estate career?
Just about every agent will tell you they could write a book about their real estate experiences so I am sure this will sound mundane but I once held an open house for clients who had chickens and rooster who freely roamed the property. I was warned that one of the roosters didn’t like flowy dresses. I had worn what I thought to be a less than flowy dress but a dress none-the-less. The buyers started arriving and I greeted them outside to discuss the property. While one buyer with her grandson asked me questions, one of the roosters started to approach. I watched while he came right up to me and pecked me in the foot. I shooed him away and kept chatting. The poor grandmother, concerned for her grandson, picked him up and I retired into the house to avoid the roosters return. At some point, I looked down and I was bleeding which wasn’t a big deal. It didn’t hurt and I wasn’t concerned. I wiped the blood away and finished the open house. I headed to the office to work for a bit and eventually decided that my foot was feeling weird so I went home to put it up. By the time I got home, it’d been about 4 hours since the rooster had poked me, things had gotten worse. I couldn’t put any weight/pressure on my foot. My husband brought me to urgent care. As I was called to be seen, I started to faint. I was helped to the room to await the doctor who ultimately determined that the roosters beak had actually impaled the muscle in my foot causing it to swell and that in turn affected the bones in my foot which is why I couldn’t walk on it. All I’d needed to do was take some Tylenol and ice my foot to relieve the swelling. And if you’re wondering, we never did sell the house but it is a funny story to share.
Why South Shore Sotheby’s International Realty?
I was drawn to South Shore SIR initially because of the size of the office. I prefer the intimacy of the smaller offices as it allows for more meaningful interoffice relationships and collaboration – more like extended family. Additionally, the office was home to two of the most successful agents in our area so I had great mentors to gain industry knowledge and expertise from.
If you could leave everyone with one piece of Real Estate advice, what would it be?
When buying or selling real estate, it is in your best interest to listen to the advice of a seasoned and reputable real estate agent. She or he has their boots on the ground where you are looking to transact and a pulse for what is going on in your area. They will either agree with or dispel the information the media shares on the subject.
