Krista was born and bred in Southern California. She attended college at California State University Fullerton graduating with a degree in Communications with an emphasis on Public Relations. Shortly before graduating she moved to Los Angeles where she remains today. Early experience with large-scale music events servicing VIP clientele taught her the importance of concierge-level service and working with a team. In 2013, she began working in the real estate industry as a Loan Processor.
She quickly realized she wanted to transition to the sales side of the industry and took a position that evolved into the Operations Director for an agent duo, with one focused on residential sales and the other on multifamily commercial sales. This position gave her a wide-reaching grasp of the industry as a whole, as she handled transactions from the first meeting, to the marketing of the property, escrow, and post-closing, creating and maintaining systems along the way.
During this time she obtained a real estate license in 2015 and is still licensed today. In 2019, she began working with Smith & Berg Partners as the Office Manager and Listings Coordinator bringing her creative approach and systems-oriented mindset. At SBP, her position evolved into the Marketing Manager as her creative nature backed by years of industry experience was a valuable asset in both managing the marketing of individual listings and the SBP brand as a whole. Outside of real estate, you can find her hiking beautiful trails in the California sunshine, anywhere where there are great tacos, or lounging with her dog Mickey.
