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.


“In December 2013, my husband and I decided we would sell our home in California and relocate ourselves to Austin, TX. While searching for properties online, I found HomeCity. What great fortune that Kristi Richards was assigned as our realtor! We had no idea what area of Austin we preferred, so I shared my list of homes with Kristi that spanned San Marcos to Georgetown and Bastrop to Driftwood. Right after Christmas, we took a house hunting trip and Kristi set us up with visits to all of these areas. She never tired of showing us properties, and she really took the time to understand our needs and priorities. Kristi handled everything for us flawlessly from inspections to negotiations with the sellers and their relo company. In late March, we moved into our new home. We are so happy with our decision. This home was meant to be ours. Now, you don't have to rely on luck or good fortune to find an awesome, professional, and caring realtor. Take our word, you can call Kristi Richards today and get started on your new life without worry or delay.”
