As part of taking Sterling Homes to the next level in 2018, Kristin has become a licensed realtor. This allows Sterling Homes to be able to ease the sales of homes in any condition.
As the business continued to grow, Kristin left the corporate world to manage and run Sterling Homes while also keeping a watchful eye over our two young daughters. Our family has a strong focus on family and we believe that everyone in a family should feel most comfortable in their own homes and love their space. Since we have lived through multiple renovations on our own homes, we know how hard renovations can be on family living, so we focus on making them as easy as possible by being the main point of contact from the initial project consultation to the final touch up of paint.
We then decided we wanted to try and do this for others. We purchased our first fixer-upper in 2015 and have been working at this together since. We continue to renovate our homes we live in, so we understand the challenges our clients can face when doing renovations - which is why we are expanding our business into helping homeowners with their projects. Since our first renovation back in 2011, we have built a dedicated team of contractors that help bring projects together to become dream homes.
Over the next few years, we continued to get the itch to put out own personal stamp on houses and took on another big project with renovating our first family home. We truly fell in love with transforming neglected properties into beautiful homes that people are proud of or excited to buy.
Out of necessity, I bought a foreclosure in 2011 with my boyfriend-turned-husband who had the brilliant idea we could renovate it. We had were very inexperienced - i.e. We had no idea of what we were doing. With barely any money and a very small budget, we did a majority of the work ourselves with a lot of family help and lived in our beautifully renovated space before turning it into a great rental property.
We are truly raising our girls to learn how to build their own homes right from the start! They can regularly be seen at all job sites and the oldest is ready with painting shirt and roller at all times.
Whether we are landscaping, painting or selecting tile, we do it all together, and I wouldn’t do it any other way!
