As a father of 2 beautiful girls and a loving husband of 22 years, family means everything to me. My free time is spent with them, whether its coaching their soccer teams, or helping them with their tennis serve, walking the dogs, or maybe even building a custom lattice for my wife’s vegetable garden on our backyard! I find that this, love of family, is the base that forges the passion I’ve always felt through the years when helping clients create a new dream space, sell a property, or when guiding them in search of a new home. I’ve been lucky to live in the Rockville area since 1988, and I’ve had both of our girls attend the local public schools. They did, however, start their education in Catholic Schools where my wife and I were honored by the Archdiocese of Washington DC and received the Archdiocese Volunteer of the Year Award! I also co-own and help operate “Blackpool Kitchen and Bath” along with Joanna, my wife. We are a husband and wife designer team and have worked with clients in the Metropolitan area as kitchen and bath designers, space planners, and project managers for over 20 years. Combining exceptional service, design, and technical skills, we have completed beautiful projects that are both aesthetically pleasing, as well as functional.

I have traveled through three continents and lived in both Europe and the Middle East before moving to The States. I was raised in a multicultural environment. I played semi-professional soccer, skied and raced in Europe and Lake Tahoe, as well as played tennis. I love to read, travel and meet people. I would like to use my background in finance and real estate to assist my clients in purchasing their dream homes, making sure all aspects of the transaction goes as smoothly as possible from start to finish.

She has boundless energy for clients, and her artistic eye will be put to great use in staging properties for the market. Kristy has a broad range of interests outside of real estate. She is a consultant for Rodan + Fields, skilled tennis player, cycling enthusiast, yoga lover and traveler. She is CPR certified, an SAT tutor, and volunteers for A Wider Circle and S.O.M.E.
