Kristi has had a passion for Real Estate since the early 2000's. She has developed and built multiple homes and commercial sites. Donald J. Trump interviewed and chose Kristi himself to be on Season 4 of "The Apprentice" in 2005. She quickly earned her nickname "firecracker from the South."
At the beginning of January 2020, Kristi followed her passion to start her own Real Estate business and Rabun Realty was born. Kristi is keenly aware of the many issues involved not only in local moves but major relocations and the challenges it can bring with it. Kristi has built an extensive and dependable list of contractors. So very blessed to be the mother of 2 beautiful girls and one son-in-law who make her job as a mother look easy. Kristi's downtime includes hiking, boating, enjoying great friends, as well as sharing a glass of wine with a fabulous meal.
