From a young age my love of property and the vast architecture of homes around Melbourne is what drew me to the real estate industry. My outgoing and friendly personality allows me to build rapport easily. Having a background in fitness/sport and with a focus on customer service, I know how to build trusting relationships with clients and foster those into long standing business relationships. My aim is to put a smile on both the buyers’ and sellers’ faces, not only with great customer service, but also with results that exceed expectation. No matter how large or small a property is, I give every client the time and attention they deserve. Ever enthusiastic, my passions outside of work extend to a love of fitness and most things sport. Much of my rare spare time is spent training and running around the soccer pitch. All the better to keep me fit for the high-energy real estate environment.

Few professions can train a person in the art of negotiation quite like that of a diplomat, and that is precisely where Kristian honed his impressive skills. For ten years, he worked in foreign affairs, rising to the position of Deputy High Commissioner. Kristian’s father was an interior designer and artist who instilled in him a deep appreciation for architecture, styling and decor. His potential for property sales was identified early, when aged nineteen, he was offered a job in a prominent real estate agency in Malta, Europe, whilst he lived there. Instead, Kristian chose to pursue University studies; a B.A. Honours in International Relations and a M.A. in Diplomatic Studies.
Kristian’s career has come full circle, finally retuning to real estate where his negotiation, patience, flexibility, tactfulness and results oriented approach have earned him immense praise from his past clients. Speaking six languages; Russian, French, Arabic, Maltese, English and Italian – the last three fluently, and a history, arts and sports buff, Kristian’s diverse interests and experiences see clients and prospective purchasers easily warm up to his genuine charm and charisma, paving the way for smooth, calm negotiations, and a more enjoyable sales experience for all. After living in four different continents, Kristian has permanently settled in Bayside Port Phillip, relishing its beachside lifestyle and close proximity to the city.
Kristian is the Director of Raine&Horne St Kilda who has formed a close collaborative relationship, sharing business and customer service values that continues to thrive with our team at Raine&Horne Essendon after working closely with many of each other’s clients on sales and leasing services between the South East, Bayside and through to the Northern and Western suburbs.
