Kristin was born in Norway and was only four when her parents, older brother, and sister moved to the beautiful waterfront community of Gulf Harbors in New Port Richey. Her experiences of spending the long Florida summers boating, fishing, beaching, and exploring the canals behind their home combined wither her parents raising her to instill kindness, respect, to have a strong work ethic, and to enjoy life gives her a uniques and rounded perspective of life that benefits her clients and helps her guide them through the stresses of buying and selling their homes. She considers herself a true Floridian having seen many exciting changes and growth to the area over the years which allows her to share and show her clients where the charming homestyles of "old Florida" still remains.
Kristin earned a degree from Saint Petersburg College in Business Management. She worked in hospitality for many years including owning a successful restaurant. This not only contributed to her ability to interact and communicate with everyone but she also gained wisdom and experience in the handling of all types of stressful situations.
Kristin and her husband, Dan, a Saint Petersburg native, have been investing in Florida real estate for decades which is why it was a natural progression for her to obtain her Real Estate license in 2012. Kristin knows the west coast of Florida well with her main focus in Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando, and Hillsborough counties. Waterfront in West Pasco and Northern Pinellas is her specialty. Her clients, who range from first time home buyers to seasoned investors, all give Kristin high praise and accolades and are often repeat clients or have referred her to friends and family!
Kristin is very proud of her two sons. Both boys have consistently maintained honor roll status as well as participating in extracurriculars like concert band, sports, and theater. Her oldest son, Devon, earned his Bachelor's degree at USF and was recently promoted at his job. Her youngest son, Donovan, will be starting high school this year and, naturally, being a native water-child has already obtained his boater's license.
When Kristin and Dan get free time between parenting and working, they like to hop on their boat or jet ski and cruise to the nearby islands, enjoying the amazing scenery and wildlife along the way. They also love to travel to a different countries, with their preference being somewhere in the Caribbean, to experience new food, cultures, and beaches. Kristin and her husband plan to always live and then retire in their home state of Florida where their heart will always be.
