Live Where You Play
When you’ve spent nearly your whole life studying communication theory, sometimes figuring out the right venue in which to apply it can be challenging. So it went for Kristin Crites until she dedicated herself to real estate full time.
“I’ve always been interested in real estate and worked on it as a hobby or a side job,” she says. “But it wasn’t until I kept getting laid off from my corporate communications jobs that the light finally went on and I decided to make it my life.”
Kristin first worked in real estate while getting her Master’s Degree in Speech Communication from Colorado State University. She worked as a client care manager for a successful Fort Collins realtor and learned how much she enjoyed learning about the ins and outs of the business. “I had a great mentor who showed me not only the technical side of the business, but how to provide excellent service for clients at every step of the transaction.”
After a few corporate detours, Kristin is putting her knowledge and passion into practice for the Peak Properties Group. “It was the encouragement of a good friend that propelled me to take the leap and do what I should have been doing all along,” she explains. “I would spend my free time looking at houses and learning about the market, and had it not been for the extra push from a friend, I might still be doing that.”
She’s since found her calling and thrown herself into her work where the irregular schedule of a realtor allows her the flexibility to spend time with her husband, who is also self-employed, and her infant daughter. It’s the nexus of her three biggest loves, which allows her to live the life she’s always wanted, and the ability to help her clients find the home they’ve always dreamed of.
When she’s not at home or with clients, you can find Kristin geeking out over craft beer at one of the numerous breweries throughout the Denver area. “Right near my home in Park Hill is Station 26 Brewing, which is amazing. Don’t miss their Colorado Cream Ale,” she advises. You might also find her working on a crochet project, training for a 5k or devouring a new book, as she’s a voracious reader.
“I love where I live. I want everyone I work with to feel the same way.”
