As one of the top 5 agents in the office, awarded Palm Springs Life Top Realtor, Karista is one of the top California Desert Realtors bringing with her over 20 years of experience, market knowledge, and expertise in the luxury real estate market. A licensed Broker in both California and Arizona, Karista is experienced in high-end properties in both the Palm Springs area and Scottsdale area communities. You can say real estate is in her blood. Growing up, Karista's mother was a top-producing real estate broker as well, so it only was a matter of time before she followed in her mother's footsteps and made a name for herself in the industry. Karista relocated to Scottsdale AZ for 6 years before returning home to La Quinta CA to continue her career as a top-producing agent in the Coachella Valley. In early 2021 she claimed the title of the highest-priced home sale in the Coachella Valley desert as well as the historical high for her office. So, what is Karista's Philosophy? "It's really pretty simple - work hard, be professional and enjoy yourself." During the buy-sell process, one spends a great deal of time with their real estate agent. "My professionalism and strong work ethic are the cornerstones to my success, but sometimes we get so caught up in the business side of buying or selling homes that we can lose sight of the fact that buying or selling a property is an exciting process and should still be enjoyable and fun. I simply love my job!" This approach has served Smith well as referrals from satisfied buyers and sellers are among her top sources of business. Karista believes strongly in the personal touch. She builds strong relationships with her clients and learns their likes, dislikes, needs, and objectives – she works diligently to deliver upon them in lieu of using lots of assistants. "My clients are my top priority and I want to ensure that they will have my attention." Whether selling your current estate property or looking for your next, reach out to Karista and experience a professional, yet personal and fun transaction.
