About the Speaker

Krisstina Wise

The GoodLife Team, Principal

What you might not know about Krisstina is her uncommon ambition and passion towards life as a highly regarded leader, entrepreneur, visionary, national master trainer, business coach, mentor, advisor, role model, athlete, wife and mother.

Krisstina isn’t content to be one of the country’s top realtors. Though her GoodLife Team real estate practice ranks in the top 1% nationwide, Krisstina’s vision is to redefine real estate itself. Through advanced adoption of innovative technologies, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a far-reaching commitment to service, her true mission is to dramatically improve, expand and enrich the real estate client experience.

Sprinting beyond the antiquated systems common in the tradition-bound world of real estate, Krisstina’s GoodLifeTeam.com web strategy embraces google, yahoo, trulia, craigslist, itunes, blogs, chats, webinars, instant messaging, podcasting and interactive maps.

Then there’s the personal, one-on-one service, the kind that no technology can replace. The GoodLife Team models itself after the world’s top service companies, with an emphasis on unrivaled service and hospitality. As a result, team members go out of their way to take care of GoodLife team clients’ needs; quite often well beyond real estate transactions.

When Krisstina isn’t leading her team or envisioning new real estate technology ventures, she is a leading business/real estate trainer. She more recently added consulting and coaching to her repertoire.

In her free time, Krisstina is busy raising 2 teenagers with her husband and business partner, Garry, training for marathons and giving back to the community. In 2006, she joined the Board of Directors for Planet Cancer, a non-profit that helps young adults with cancer. In 2007, Krisstina chaired Planet Cancer’s annual fundraiser and was instrumental in increasing the event’s revenue by over 500%. In 2008, she accepted the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors of Planet Cancer.
