Kristina joined Leslie J. Garfield in July 2017 as the assistant to Managing Partner Jed Garfield. Originally from Bergen County NJ, Kristina attended the College of Charleston where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in communication. Coming from a family with a long history in real estate, her interest in the field started at a very young age. Her father owns a commercial brokerage & appraisal company in NJ.
Upon graduation she set off to work in real estate in Hoboken and
Jersey City. After a year, she knew she wanted to make the move into
the big apple to advance her career in the field.
Growing up Kristina was a competitive equestrian, traveling up and down the east coast from New York to Florida throughout the year to compete. Her family has a farm out in Sussex County NJ where she frequently visits on the weekends. Kristina thanks this incredible sport for giving her a true understanding of responsibility, devotion, and passion - all qualities that she is now able to truly apply to her career in real estate. She does this while wearing a constant smile on her face, adding only positive energy to all business transactions she is involved in.
Kristina now resides in the Upper West Side with her boyfriend Ryan and beloved pups, Zooey and Morty. In her spare time she can be found hiking, attending concerts with friends, diving into the divine foodie scene of NYC, or visiting her home away from home in Charleston, SC.
