A native South Carolinian, Kristie Buxton was born and raised in Greenville, SC. She spent many summers vacationing with her family in Charleston and developed a love for the Holy City. Kristie pursued a Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia and upon graduation, moved to Atlanta to work for a law firm specializing in litigation, corporate and real estate transactions. After twelve years with the firm, she decided to transition into real estate sales. Shortly after, she relocated to Charleston to be closer to family and joined The Cassina Group in 2007. After a brief hiatus to the Grand Strand area, Kristie returned to the Lowcountry. She now lives in Mount Pleasant with her husband, John, and her children, Lilly and Wilson.

PRAISE FOR KRISTIE
"We were moving from out-of-state to Mt. Pleasant. Kristie was amazing and we could not have asked for a better realtor! We will without a doubt recommend her to family/friends and use her again for any possible home searches or second homes!"
"I had the most delightful homebuying experience with Kristie Buxton! She was thoughtful in questioning me about my needs and wants for a new home and very respectful of my budget. She showed me properties that matched my needs and included as many of the "wants" as possible. She always kept my best interests in mind. When I found a property that I really liked, she helped me with comps and contributed significantly in developing an appropriate offer. When our contract fell through due to the sellers, I was terribly disappointed but Kristie was totally upbeat about that house just "not being the right one" and that we would find the right one! She scheduled more showings right away. Because she kept on top of every new listing each day, she sent me information on a property that I loved. We wrote an offer immediately and signed a contract within a day and closed three weeks later. We love our new home! It is perfect for us. I highly recommend Kristie Buxton as one of the best realtors I have ever worked with (and after buying and selling 18 homes in different places in the United States, I have much experience to justify my recommendation!) Thank you, Kristie Buxton, for providing the preparation, the upbeat attitude, and wise counsel to find us our perfect home!"
--Linda Swayne, PhD
"Hands down the best experience ever! Kristie stuck with us through some bumpy turn of events and showed us such patience and understanding. I don’t think you could find a better realtor! Thank you for all you did and especially for following up after the sale!" --Deb Wade
"The selling experience with Kristie Buxton was terrific. She went above and beyond! If you are looking for a realtor, choose Kristie!" --Sara Blanchard
"The home we wanted was also targeted by other motivated prospective buyers. It was only through Kristie’s excellent work that we won the deal. In this market where most homes sell within one or two days for more than the asking price, the buying agent’s role is critical." --Dunlap Roger
