Growing up in Hunter’s Creek Village, Kristen has always had an appreciation for the charm and character of homes in the Memorial Villages. Through an eagerness to explore the city, she moved to many different areas throughout Houston before settling in the Museum District. Kristen has lived within close proximity to restaurants and nightlife in Downtown, the quiet tree lined streets of West University, and the amazing art exhibits and historic atmosphere in Montrose and the Museum District. She has also acquainted herself with the surrounding suburbs of Houston such as Sugarland, Katy and Spring through the experience of working with her clients.
After attending Memorial High School she went on to graduate from the University of Houston with a major in Corporate Communications. Through her college career she worked in high rise management and soon after started a job as a project manager for a website development company. Kristen’s experience in managing digital assets for companies across the country prepared her to handle unknown complexities, a skill she utilizes in real estate transactions. In addition, her background in web technology enhances her marketing skillset when listing a home.
In 1976 Kristen’s grandfather “Papa” Bill Flavin formed a real estate business in Lake Charles, Louisiana after a successful career as a mechanical engineer. He worked with Flavin Realty for a total of 38 years, acquiring and selling properties for both residential and commercial clients. Considering Lake Charles is only 2 hours away from Houston, Kristen was immersed in the culture of the real estate industry. Her goal is to continue the tradition of excellence that her grandfather instilled in her. She works well with any given timeline and is always accessible to her clients. Kristen’s attention to real estate activity and trends helps her offer the best guidance in decision making.
