Kristin Joyner is an Operating Partner and the Georgia Broker In-Charge for Living Down South Realty and is responsible for compliance, coaching, recruitment, and overseeing all brokerage engagements and sales transactions for our firm. Living Down South is blessed to have Kristin on board applying her high level of competence and business acumen, community outreach, and thought leadership to all aspects of our organization.
Growing up in Athens, Georgia, it’s only fitting that Kristin graduated from the University of Georgia in Athens where she earned her degree in Education and is also life-long Dawg fan. While attending college, Kristin took her real estate salesperson class and managed a large multi-unit apartment complex. Upon graduation, Kristin realized that a career in real estate was her calling. With 22 years of real estate industry experience, Kristin loves mentoring others through the most expensive purchase they will ever make. “I have always enjoyed helping others and with each transaction I learn something new.” As the Living Down South Managing Broker, Kristin also contributes unique problem-solving skills. She believes that “when compassion and understanding occurs, all problems can be solved.” In addition to real estate, Kristin has always been open to new and different careers most recently working for the Georgia Department of Corrections and is currently enrolled in Maryland University of Integrative Health’s (MUIH) newly developed Master of Science in Yoga Therapy which is one of the first graduate degree programs in this field. Combining Kristin’s extensive real estate and critical thinking experience with her unwavering patience and passion to advocate, Living Down South Realty is well positioned for growth, elevating personalized learning pathways for its agents, and exceeding the expectations of our clients and customers.
When not Brokering, Kristin and her husband Raymond who currently live in Northeast, GA on Lake Hartwell can be found boating and relaxing on their dock listening to dock tunes, attending UGA Football games, or catching up with their grown kids Marilynn and Ray. They have 4 ‘second chance’ mutts, Daisy, Lilly, Mini-Man, and Bella and an adopted prison kitty, Emmy. In her free time, Kristin can be found on the lake teaching paddle board yoga-in the best looking yoga studio in Georgia.
