Kristen Carter Realtor




Kristen Carter is an Arizona transplant, having moved to Gilbert AZ in 2010 from the Central Valley of California. As an agent, her favorite part of working with clients is relieving the stress that often accompanies buying and selling, making it a fun experience through communication and hands-on guidance. She knows what it's like to make the move to a new state, and enjoys helping buyers do the same. Often compared to the Energizer Bunny, her excitement for helping clients is contagious.  She married her high school sweetheart Richard in 2004, and together they have 3 amazing, energetic children, a German Shepherd and 2 Australian Shepherds. As a family, they enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and attending museums and festivals. You'll also see them participating and volunteering with community events.
