About Kristi

“I consider myself a consummate professional, educator, and facilitator in the real estate transaction process. To every client, I offer my full attention, experience, negotiating skills, honesty, and integrity to help them buy or sell their home.”     

A full-time Realtor since 2008, Kristi Richard’s diverse background has set an ideal stage for her career as a full-time real estate professional. Kristi spent much of her earlier adult life traveling the world as a business and marketing manager to a professional magician, simultaneously filling the role of magician’s assistant. Prior to her work in the entertainment industry, Kristi received her bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from Stephen F. Austin University and thrived in several roles involving sales and communication. After concluding that chapter, life’s natural progression led Kristi to real estate.

Within 2 years Kristi was a top producer at Zip Realty in Las Vegas, earning a spot in the coveted Presidents Club alongside the city’s best agents. A native Texan, Kristi decided it was time to move back to the state, choosing Austin as her new homestead in 2012. Kristi didn’t miss a beat and continued to earn multiple Top Producer and Circle of Excellence awards since moving to Austin. In 2019 Kristi acquired her broker’s license and is now a Broker Associate with Spyglass Realty. In 2021, Kristi took her business to the Texas Coast where she now splits time between there and Austin. She owns and manages her short term rental condos and is a partner in a successful golf cart rental business in Port Aransas called Paradise Cart Rental.  

Kristi prides herself on providing constant and open communication to her clients and has assisted all variants of clients including first-time homebuyers, sellers, re-locators, distressed homeowners in need of a short sale, as well as savvy investors. She enjoys educating her clients during their real estate transactions and making sure they understand each facet of the process.

Overcoming real estate hurdles and problem-solving are among some of the most exciting aspects of real estate for Kristi, topped only by the satisfaction of knowing she’s found a client the perfect home. Her negotiation skills, experience, and competitive nature ensure her clients always get the best deal possible when crossing a transaction’s finish line. When Kristi isn’t practicing real estate, she enjoys a myriad of different activities including tennis, country dancing, fishing and playing with her two cats.
