Highly energetic and creative, Kristy Deal is a person always on the move. Born and raised in New Jersey, she studied Fine Arts at Drexel University and then later pursued Nursing at Rutgers University. With family members in real estate, she recently decided to join the less stressful but equally challenging career as a Realtor with the top-producing Smart Living Associates of Long & Foster. For Kristy, real estate was the perfect choice. She has lived in 15 cities and knows first-hand the trials and stresses experienced during a move. She has boundless energy for clients, and her artistic eye will be put to great use in staging properties for the market. Kristy has a broad range of interests outside of real estate. She is a consultant for Rodan + Fields, skilled tennis player, cycling enthusiast, yoga lover and traveler. She is CPR certified, an SAT tutor, and volunteers for A Wider Circle and S.O.M.E. (So Others May Eat). Kristy and her family live in the heart of downtown Bethesda and enjoys being in the thick of it all. She is excited to be working at the award-winning, billion-dollar Bethesda Gateway Office.
