Associate Broker, Chrissie Kallio Real Estate
Atlanta Fine Homes – Sotheby’s International Realty
Chrissie Kallio and her top-ranking, full-service team operate with a singular focus: to deliver top-quality results to every client without the stress and hassle commonly associated with real estate transactions. As an Associate Broker and an affiliate of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, Kallio assists buyers, sellers and investors with properties in Intown neighborhoods. When working with investors, her priority is smart development and a focus on delivering projects that maintain the neighborhood’s integrity while enhancing its value. Kallio, along with her team of specialists and her vendor partners, prioritize catering to each client’s unique needs, goals and motivations.
Kallio is passionate about Atlanta’s growth and development, and encouraged by how the real estate market aligns with Atlanta’s emergence into the world-class city she believes it is absolutely poised to be. “Having the opportunity to work with people in finding their real estate success stories in this great town — whether they are buying, selling or growing an investment portfolio — is truly an honor.”
Transitioning to real estate in 2003 after purchasing her first house in Intown, Kallio’s experience as a customer ignited a desire to help others achieve their real estate dreams with the same level of respect and professionalism that she herself was given. Her degree in public relations and career background in luxury hotel management and event planning are integral to her client-first approach. “Managing people’s expectations is a huge part of the real estate process,” she explains. “My experience in both the hospitality and event industry goes a long way towards that.”
When working with sellers, Kallio and her team rigorously prepare the property, with Kallio herself completing multiple walk-throughs, helping with paint selections and providing staging recommendations. Throughout the process, Kallio’s focus remains on the clients she works with. “I know that this is not about me. It’s not about volume, or number of transactions,” she says. “It’s about real life, whether it’s relocating, needing more space because of a growing family, wanting to reach an investment goal or helping a parent sell the house you grew up in. So I don’t focus on my goals — I focus on my client’s goal. The rest comes when you keep your focus on them.”
Kallio is EcoBroker-certified and EarthCraft-certified, as well as a Certified Distressed Property Expert. She has earned the Graduate Realtor Institute designation and is a member of the Atlanta Realtors Association.
Kallio and her husband Chris have two boys, and when not working, she and her family enjoy live music, running, checking out Atlanta’s restaurant scene, and supporting Atlanta United.
