Welcome! Let's get to know each other.
I'm Kris McLaughlin and I love being a realtor in my community. I live in the same neighborhood I serve and my intention is to elevate your real estate experience. I love partnering with my clients to create a smart, well-negotiated and smooth real estate transaction through a mindful approach.
I moved to Phoenix in 2005, which is the same year I started my journey in real estate. It was a big transition going from living in cities like New York and San Francisco and working in publishing to living in the Valley of the Sun and working in real estate. It turns out that my marketing and sales skills from the publishing industry perfectly translated over to marketing and selling homes, while the 30-day magazine publishing cycle mirrored the 30 to 45-day home-buying process. This alignment was no coincidence because once I started doing real estate, I fell in love with it and it was the perfect transition from my old job. To this day, I am grateful for the opportunity that real estate has afforded me in starting a family, connecting with my community, and being able to give back.
In 2015 I chose to really work on myself personally, through meditation, visualization, journaling, and yoga. I just knew there was more for me to experience within me, and I wanted to discover that. The beauty of it was that not only did I find more joy and happiness within myself during that time, but growing so much personally actually affected my real estate business; the goal I set for the year, I accomplished three times over! This was such an empowering experience both personally and professionally, so I wanted to bring this mindful lens to the brokerage that I work at. So, when I’m not working with clients, I volunteer my time to mentor other real estate agents either in group settings or one-on-one and I serve on the leadership board. I have covered everything from meditation, intention, and gratitude to communication and the nuances of contract addendums.
At home, I have two amazing sons, Patrick and Owen, and a wonderful husband, Ryan. Ryan is also a business owner, which weaves our family strongly into the roots of our neighborhood.
“Kris exceeded every expectation I had. I have worked with a few other realtors over the past several years, and not one provided the level of service that Kris did in representing us.”
