I'm not just about work, though! I’m a mom to two beautiful children. My son is in the Navy, and my daughter is now married. I get to be a pet parent to two delightful little dogs - our bundles of joy, energy, and mischief. When I'm not immersed in the real estate world, you might catch me exploring the winding trails and breathtaking landscapes of the Central Coast, book in hand, or maybe enjoying a hiking adventure! I absolutely love to read and am always up for a good exploration of our amazing local spots, whether downtown SLO, Cayucos, Pismo, Avila, Santa Margarita, or Paso Robles.
I have a huge passion for helping people find those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities; whether you’re a business owner, someone looking to relocate to our charming area, an investor, homebuyer, or seller, I’m here as a resource for anything real-estate related.
I don’t just wait around for the right opportunity to come knocking—I’m proactive! I door-knock, cold call, send letters, and scout neighborhoods to unearth the ideal property that may not be listed online yet. My mission is to make your dreams come true by finding the place that suits your needs and wishes perfectly.
I work extensively from Paso Robles to Cambria, Cayucos, Avila, Pismo, Arroyo Grande, and all the enchanting places in between within San Luis Obispo county. I bring a wealth of diverse knowledge, high energy, and strong values of integrity and hard work to every transaction. Attention to detail and a knack for negotiation, marketing, and service are my specialties, and I’m always here to make your real estate journey smooth and enjoyable.

Kristie was always extremely accessible and easy to work with. She was always willing to set up appointments, meetings, showings etc. around my busy schedule and was very accommodating. She had great local knowledge from street to street in multiple cities which came in handy when we were looking at different homes in different neighborhoods. When it got to making offers and signing paperwork she would get documents to and from me with accuracy and speed. She handled everything so I could focus on working during the day and not have to worry about paperwork while I was busy. The time that we were looking at homes was extremely unique with the start of COVID in 2020. Throughout the process she rolled with the changes and helped keep me and my family sane while we tried to navigate these trickier times. Kristie is easygoing and easy to work with and doesn't have an abrasive "sales" personality/approach that I personally would not enjoy working with. She gets the job done all while maintaining a positive attitude and keeping the ball rolling. All in all I ended up in a great home that I'm so happy with and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to a friend. - Drisdelle
Kristie, was a vital asset in the negotiating of recent sell. Without her expert skills as a broker things would not have gone so smoothly. I would recommend Kristie to those who have spent a lifetime in SLO and more so to those who are looking to make their first purchase in the area. As a seller I couldn't have asked for better representation. - Rouse
Kristie is amazing. She found us. She found buyers before the house was listed and got it sold quickly. She is the perfect realtor, kind and open, but professional and a great advocate. We highly recommend her.
Kristie is a great person to know when buying or selling a home in the San Luis Obispo county area. Kristie is a native to the area so she knows the real estate market better than anyone. She is also very kind and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend Kristie to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell.
Kristie Carter is the way to go. Kristie has represented me on two home sales and one purchase. This last sale was trying due to the global situation but Kristie kept everything moving and my imagination tranquil. As the News was creating worry with the world Kristie was the person I trusted to keep everything together and she did. She has always gone way above and beyond.

Great Experience From Beginning to End! Kristie did a terrific job selling my house from the beginning to the end. She was very prepared for our initial meeting and made a great first impression. She did not try to pressure me for the listing, which I liked. After signing her agreement, Kristie had a photographer out the next day who did a great job on the pictures. The pictures were ready within 24 hours and my house was up on all the different real estate websites (including a website specifically for the house) in less than 1 day after I signed her on as my broker. We had our first offer in less than 3 hours after my house went live on the MLS. Whew! In fact, we had over 5 total offers on the property!! Throughout the process, Kristie kept in contact with me daily via, phone, text, or email. We had trials and tribulations with buyers, but she always kept a positive mindset and stayed focused on selling my property. I would definitely use Kristie again, she is one of the most organized and diligent brokers I have ever used and her marketing is far more superior than what I have seen out there which means more eyes on your listing!
Kristie came highly recommended by a good friend. We were not disappointed. Kristie was attentive to our needs and showed us only homes that matched our requirements. It was very important to us that our realtor knew the area and the market and Kristie knew both very well. I can't say enough about how great Kristie was. She made a stressful situation smooth and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Kristie to anyone wanting to buy in the area.

Kristie was amazing! Kristie has helped me so much! I was having so much trouble finding a home in a location that fit all my needs but Kristie spent months with me looking and helping me. One thing I loved about Kristie is that she actually listened to me about what I wanted. And based on that she helped give me advice. Also she was always available. She worked 7 days a week answering questions and setting up showings. If I wasn't available to go to a showing she would Facetime me. I can't say enough how dedicated Kristie is to what she does. And when we did finally find a home, it happened to be one that needs a lot of work. But she coordinated and helped get estimates from different contractors so I had an idea of what kind of work it needed and about how much it was going to be. I had a wonderful experience working with Kristie. I trust her and would strongly recommend her to anyone!
I enjoyed working with Kristie. Her expertise and professionalism made the home sale process easy. She provided very helpful information on what was needed to make the house show properly and attract buyers.

I had the please of working with Kristie Carter during what turned out to be an unusually complicated purchase. She was calming, reassuring, and supportive. More importantly, she was effective and helped us survive a bidding war and various other twists and turns. I am so grateful for her help and expertise.
Kristie was selling the current house we were renting. She took the time and had the decency to come to our door and tell us in person our home was being sold and if we had any questions. It just made sense to use someone with this level of professionalism to help us find our new home. Kristie Carter is very knowledgeable of the industry and region. We looked at or discussed homes in several different cities and Kristie was available by phone or text anytime we had a question or needed something regarding the purchase. In the end I would consider Kristie more of a family friend than our agent. She went above and beyond more times than I can remember. Thank you for making a dream come true for our family.
