Kristen Ferraris, a native of Contra Costa County, graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Moraga in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal & Civic Studies. Before starting her real estate career Kristen focused on working with children and adults with physical and mental disabilities such as Autism and Down Syndrome, with a special focus on of Applied Behavior Analysis for autistic children.
Kristen is the proud mother of two beautiful children. She comes from a family of Chinese immigrants that have all started their own businesses. Her father has worked in residential real estate and her uncle and stepfather work in commercial real estate so real estate is in Kristen’s blood. It was Kristen’s mother, however, whose example of being a female business owner, that served as a major impetus for Kristen wanting to work for herself.
Kristen was interested in joining Laurie Higgins & Associates because of Laurie Higgins’ two decades of real estate experience, her excellent reputation, and the opportunity for an amazing mentorship.
What Kristen loves about real estate is the ability to have daily interactions with people who are looking to buy and sell homes, the excitement of helping people purchase their own home, and the opportunity to utilize her knowledge of Contra Costa County and the surrounding areas. Kristen notes that the atmosphere at Dudum Real Estate has been very welcoming, with amazing opportunities for further education, advanced technology, and really supports her goal of having a healthy work/life balance. She feels grateful to be part of such a great company.
