My name is Kristin Brillantes, I am a real estate professional in the Baltimore metro area, with a primary focus on Baltimore City, as well as Howard, Baltimore, Anne Arundel, and Carroll Counties. Some people think all agents provide the same level of service so they’re ready to work with any agent. What sets me apart is my commitment to my client’s goals. I make it my #1 priority to truly understand your goals and come up with a plan to get you exactly what you want.
I work hard to constantly improve the way I do business and continue to enhance the systems and services I deliver to my clients. The professionals that I’ve partnered with will ensure your home buying experience goes smoothly and the transaction is completed efficiently and seamlessly from start to finish.
I grew up in Ellicott City, MD and attended Centennial High School. I ended up moving to the Canton area in 2011. In 2014, I purchased a row home in Canton (a shell), gutted it, and CHAP tax froze it. I am very familiar with the loan products available to fund a rehab project and the process because I did it first hand. I have successfully assisted many home buyers in buying “fixer uppers.”
My background prior to my real estate career includes a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Communications from Stevenson University and seven years as a Marketing Manager. I am dedicated to staying informed about market trends, loan products, pricing, interest rates, and other factors that affect buyers, sellers, and investors.
