Living Down South is blessed to have Kristin on board applying her high level of competence and business acumen, community outreach, and thought leadership to all aspects of our organization.

She believes that “when compassion and understanding occur, all problems can be solved.” She has recently completed The Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation. This designation is recognized by the National Association of REALTORS. To hold the GRI designation REALTORS must: Have pursued a course of study that represents the minimum common body of knowledge for progressive real estate professionals; Have developed a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to navigate the current real estate climate—no matter what it’s condition; Are recognized nationally; Act with professionalism and are committed to serving their clients and customers with the highest ethical standards.

In addition to real estate, Kristin has always been open to new and different interests. She is a board-certified health and wellness coach and holds a master’s degree in yoga therapy. Kristin teaches for Emory University Health and Wellness Coaching certification program and provides yoga therapy for the Veterans Administration and Lake Hartwell Yoga.

When not Brokering, Kristin and her husband Raymond who currently live in Northeast, GA on Lake Hartwell can be found boating and relaxing on their dock listening to dock tunes, attending UGA Football games, or catching up with their grown kids Marilynn and Ray.  They have 3 ‘second chance’ mutts, Lilly, Mini-Man, and Bella, and an adopted prison kitty, Emmy. In her free time, Kristin can be found on the lake teaching paddleboard yoga in the best-looking yoga studio in Georgia.
