Kristi Miller




Southern Homes Real Estate

Kristi Miller is a passionate real estate advisor with Southern Homes Real Estate, where she is co-owner and principal broker, who loves walking people through the facets of life where real estate is the focus.

Married to Al Miller; she has two children, Taylor Cochrane andAaron Cochrane; and two step-children, Caroline Miller and Davis Miller. She has been in real estate almost 12 years, having started her career when her family was faced with a medical diagnosis that required her to start a full-time career.

“I love helping my clients’ transitions through the different stages of their lives through real estate,” she said. “I do my best (in a market of low inventory) to set realistic expectations in the beginning and try to keep communication up during the search process, even though we can go several weeks without options coming available.”

Miller also gives back to her community in numerous ways. She was executive director for the retired non-profit, Sustaining A Village Everyday (a.k.a Teen SAVE). In 2016 she was named Parks Realty Inaugural Humanitarian Award recipient.

“I believe we all have been given different skills and talents that when combined collectively, we can accomplish great things in the world around us,” she said. “So, investing in your community, with other like-minded people only helps to strengthen our community.”

During the rare downtime, Miller enjoys arts and crafts and mentoring teens and new agents. She attends World Outreach Church. Miller has learned over the years that real estate is mainly about solving problems and working with different personalities. Her own determined and tenacious personality makes her a great fit in the business.
