Kristi Caudell - Realtor
Growing up an hour from Lake Burton in Gainesville, Ga Kristi would drive to north frequently to enjoy the North Georgia mountains. She was struck by the history, charm, cuisine, and scenery of the Rabun County and decided to call Clayton home in 2017. Since then Kristi have been part of selling over 16 million in real estate in Rabun County.
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 surrounded herself with this supportive and kind community and could not be happier here. So very blessed to be the mother of 2 beautiful girls 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 and a good meal.
