Starting a Career in Real Estate: An Interview with Kristy Kadolph

Starting a Career in Real Estate: An Interview with Kristy Kadolph

Moving to a new city can be daunting, but for Kristy Kadolph, the decision to relocate from Chicago to Atlanta was a game-changer. In a recent episode of the "Clearly Georgia" podcast, Kristy shared her inspiring journey.

Kristy moved to Georgia nearly three years ago, driven by the appealing weather, job opportunities for her and her husband, and the more affordable housing market compared to Chicago. The journey to find their dream home in Atlanta began with the guidance of Judy, who helped them navigate various neighborhoods and find the perfect fit for their growing family. Kristy's transition wasn't just about moving; it was also about embracing a new career path.

Originally a special education teacher with a Master's degree in ABA, Kristy found herself drawn to real estate after her home-buying experience in Atlanta. She loved the educational aspect of real estate and the potential to build wealth through property. With Judy's mentorship, Kristy quickly obtained her real estate license and joined Sage and Grace Realty, where she has thrived as a dedicated and knowledgeable agent.

Kristy's story highlights the importance of community and support in both personal and professional life. She emphasizes the value of stepping out of one's comfort zone to build connections, particularly after having her son, Owen. Living near the BeltLine in Atlanta has provided Kristy and her family with a vibrant, walkable community that feels like the perfect blend of urban and suburban life.

Her journey into real estate wasn't just about selling homes; it was about helping clients envision their lives in new spaces, leveraging her eye for design and staging. Kristy continues to grow and excel in her career, now recognized as the Rookie of the Year at Sage and Grace Realty.
