Finding Real Estate

It was Kristin Gonnella's keen-eye for detail that first led to her flourishing success in the field of professional real estate. Prior to joining Coldwell Banker, Kristin and her husband routinely bought single family homes and rental properties, fixed them up and then sold or rented them to people eager to find their perfect dream home. What started out as a hobby quickly transitioned into Kristin founding her own brokerage.

After 14 years of being a managing broker, Kristin decided that joining forces with Coldwell Banker would be the best way to offer the most comprehensive marketing expertise and resources to her clients.

Kristin's unsurpassed follow through and work ethic was forged early in her career. She developed her tenacious drive and dedication working in the sales industry as a pharmaceutical representative right out of college. It was there she learned the selling and negotiating tools that would lead her to work with Vencor Hospitals (now known as Kindred Hospital), selling respiratory services to nursing homes.

When Vencor purchased a chain of nursing homes, Kristin jumped at the challenge to become licensed as a nursing home administrator and take on the extraordinary responsibility of running a home on the Northside of Chicago. This new position required Kristin to manage a lot of moving parts and helped develop her organization and follow through skills even further. She was quickly promoted to Director of Development for the chain and created a unique and comprehensive marketing plan to help lead her sales team.

Given all of skills she had learned, Kristin felt the inescapable tug of the real estate industry, where she would be able to bring together her people skills and management and sales background to offer her clients an unmatched level of expertise and guidance.


As a resident of Chicago since 1993, Kristin truly loves the city. She currently lives and raises her family in the Ravenswood Manor neighborhood, yet Kristin is an expert at buying and selling properties throughout the entire City of Chicago. She is also a great resource for trades and dining! When not focused on real estate, Kristin enjoys coaching youth sports and volunteering.

For the latest in real estate, from marketing to attracting the right potential buyers, she can share tremendous insight on the real estate industry. Contact Kristin Gonnella today if you would like to buy, rent or sell.
