A patient care technician graduate, she previously worked as a home health aide and utilizes her interpersonal skills to build and maintain relationships. She also owned and operated a popular artisans’ gallery in Key West and painted custom projects on commission. She decided to pursue the more creative side of the real estate industry as a marketing professional and put her eye for design and high energy to excellent use.

Her desire to “never stop learning” enables Krista to stay well versed in the many fine new home communities throughout Tampa Bay. She frequently visits these neighborhoods to know first-hand how best to include them in promotions. Providing such a high level of service requires more than an extensive knowledge of real estate; it takes compassion and a single-minded dedication to helping builders promote their products. Krista can be reached at krista@NewHomesSolutions.com .
