Name: Kristy Provost

How long have you been a realtor?
I’ve been a realtor for 5 years.

What do you like about selling homes?
I love working with people, knowing that I’m helping them achieve their goals, and making what can be a stressful process a little easier for them.

What is your funniest realtor moment?
When I first started in real estate, my daughters would occasionally go on showings with me, with clients that I knew very well. We were in a vacant home one day and the girls decided to hide in one of the closets. They jumped out and scared us just as we entered the room. My client and I bumped heads as we jumped. I don’t think that I’ve ever laughed so hard. But lesson learned, no “Bring your kids to work” days!

What is your most unique sales experience?
I had the pleasure of working with a buyer whose husband had extremely specific needs due to his disability. A condo was needed because they won’t live there year round, but she wasn’t finding a condo that would work for them. We were able to modify a floor plan and customize the condo for their specific needs. It was definitely a learning experience.

What did you say you’d never do that you’re doing now?
I swore that I would never be in sales. But I look at selling real estate more as a customer service position then actual sales. I can’t make you fall in love with a home if it’s not what you want. But I can show you homes that meet your needs and wants and help you find the “one”.

If you could give one tip for someone looking for a home, what would you say?
Be patient, and don’t make a rash decision under pressure. The right home for you is out there, it just may take some time to find it.

Anything else you want us to know about you?
I lost my sister to cancer 6 years ago. Her passing was an eye opener for me. Life is short; spend every day doing what you love. That is exactly why I decided to pursue a career in real estate. I am so glad I did! I truly love my job and feel blessed every time I am able to assist a client.

Let Kristy help you find your perfect home in one of our condo communities in Columbus, Ohio. She truly loves what she does and would love to help you find your new home!
