About Kristi Richards

“I consider myself a consummate professional, educator and facilitator in the real estate transaction process. To every client, I offer my full attention, experience, negotiating skills, honesty and integrity to help them buy or sell their home.”

A full-time Realtor since 2008, Kristi Richard’s diverse background has set an ideal stage for her career as a full-time real estate professional. Kristi spent much of her earlier adult life traveling the world as the business and marketing manager to a professional magician, simultaneously filling the role of magician’s assistant. Working a residency at the MGM Grande in Las Vegas (that included a record breaking 9,000 performances) before transitioning to a cruise ship residency allowed Kristi to experience many different cultures and prepared her to interact and work with many kinds of people. Prior to her work in the entertainment industry, Kristi received her Bachelors Degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from Stephen F. Austin University and thrived in several roles involving sales and communication.

After concluding that chapter, life’s natural progression led Kristi to real estate. A self-proclaimed “professional socializer”, Kristi counts communication, openness, and availability among her best traits. Within two years Kristi was a top producer at Zip Realty in Las Vegas, earning a spot in the coveted Presidents Club alongside the cities best agents.

A native Texan, Kristi decided it was time to move back to the state, choosing Austin as her new homestead. Now at HomeCity Real Estate, Kristi continues to excel among the companies best, consistently earning a spot in HomeCity’s Circle of Excellence, and Top Producer Club.

Kristi prides herself on providing constant and open communication to her clients and has assisted all variants of clients including first-time homebuyers, sellers, re-locators, distressed homeowners in need of a short sale, as well as savvy investors. She enjoys educating her clients during their real estate transactions and making sure they understand each facet of the process.

Overcoming real estate hurdles and problem-solving are among some of the most exciting aspects of real estate for Kristi, topped only by the satisfaction of knowing she’s found a client the perfect home. Her negotiation skills, experience, and competitive nature ensures her clients always get the best deal possible when crossing a transactions finish line.

When Kristi isn’t practicing real estate she enjoys a myriad of different activities. An avid tennis player, she has participated in two (sometimes three) tennis leagues at a time for the last ten years. Kristi also enjoys karaoke, once a member of an award-winning karaoke league! Ever the achiever, she also taught herself to play the piano.

An animal lover, Kristi lends her support to Austin Animal Center and enjoys donating her time and money to animal welfare causes. Her last trip to the Center yielded a new feline addition to her family, joining her two cats Sam and Sophie.


“Thank you so much Kristi, you are INCREDIBLE!!! My husband and I were relocating to Austin. We had become very frustrated with Austin’s REALTOR®s. We needed to find a reliable, knowledgeable realtor who was interested in the buyer’s needs and one that wanted to work more than 2-3 hours a day. In addition, we were running out of time. (Our home had sold in a different city and we really didn’t want to move twice.) We found some homes that we wanted to see. By this time, we had decided that when we saw a home that we liked; we would just call the listing agent and go from there. We drove to the first home on our list to see if we liked the neighborhood, etc. Kristi was the listing agent. We called her number. It was late Friday afternoon, and she answered! The home that we called about had multiple offers presented to the seller that day, and was now out of our price range. We explained our situation to Kristi. To our amazement and shock, Kristi met us in 30 minutes with 5 homes for us to view. WOW! We had not accomplished that in a week. Kristi was always available to us; she worked her schedule around to assist us when we were in town. She answered our questions, she did not pressure us, nor did she try to up sell us. We can’t tell you how thankful we are that we met Kristi. To make a long story a little shorter – the bottom line is, Kristi was and is very kind, trustworthy, dependable, and extremely professional. She is very knowledgeable of the market and listens to her clients’ needs. She was amazing at keeping us focused so that we didn’t get overwhelmed. When needed, she connected us to resources immediately. Kristi is not only a hard diligent worker, but she is proactive. She found our home for us, and handled everything flawlessly. We cannot say enough about Kristi Richards. The adjectives in this paragraph do not due her justice. Thank you so very much for everything Kristi! You are a perfect 10!”
