Catherine Evans

Catherine Evans, or “Cat” as everyone calls her, was born in Miami, Florida and relocated to Palm Coast in 1994 from Torrington Connecticut.

After graduating from Flagler Palm Coast High School in 1996, Cat immersed herself into the family business of real estate.

During this time she negotiated hundreds of transactions, contracted the exclusive sale of all SPEC homes with one of the largest Florida builders, worked as a consultant for Realty Executives International based out of Phoenix, Arizona and became a national guest speaker in a variety of real estate conferences.

In 2013, as Cat puts it “her heart was calling her back to general real estate.” She traded in her corporate heels for some beach flip flops and started her own real estate company!

She combined the love of family…including the four legged kind along with her passion for the community and created the first and only pet friendly boutique in Flagler County, Palm Coast & the Beaches Real Estate.

Cat was awarded the national award of Rising Real Estate Star by RisMedia in 2005, the Business Partners Choice Award by the Flagler County Association of Realtors in 2015, was named on of the 40 Under 40 Young Professionals in Volusia/Flagler Counties in 2016 and her brokerage was recognized as the 2016 Small Business of the Year by the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce for her commitment to the community and revenue growth.

She lives for spending time outdoors with her husband and their four children, one of which has recently joined the Armed Forces.

Cat attributes success to attitude, surroundings & an overall appreciation of life.

Kathleen Krupitsch
Realtor/Habla Espanol

Kathleen was raised in the Bronx, a borough of New York City, for most of her life. Raised by a single mom who worked vigorously long hours to send her to a private school; she learned at an early age the value of hard work and determination.

After graduating high school, she attended evening class at Manhattan College in NYC. Her major course of study was in Business and accounting. These classes were attended while Kathleen worked full time for a textile company in lower Manhattan. She worked in their accounting department while also assisting the Chief Financial Officer and top sales representative of the company. She fell in love with the borough of Manhattan and decided to make it her business to make her life work in the city. This is where her desire to learn more about a career in the sales industry began, which would eventually lead her to a career in real estate several years later.

As Kathleen began to have a family of her own, they moved north of the city to Orange County, New York. After 25 years her husband retired as a NYC Detective and they decided to move to Florida. After months of researching the best places to live, they decided that Palm Coast was just the ideal location. The idea of excellent schools, warm weather (just three seasons), Palm Coast being an area barely hit with hurricanes, and its low crime, all made it an easy choice. Within months of moving to Palm Coast, Kathleen began her career in real estate fulfilling her dreams.

Today, Kathleen has a flourishing real estate career helping others find the home of their dreams or simply an investment home for their future needs. She is a people person and can easily relate to the clients needs and desires. When not working, She spends time with her mother who also relocated to the Palm Coast area. Kathleen is an active volunteer of S.T.E.P., which is a foreign exchange student program that provides students with the ability to learn the American way of life and our culture. These students come from every part of the world and are usually high school students. She also enjoys cooking and entertaining for her family and friends with barbecues, parties, and dinners. She and her family can often be found Friday nights along our famous Flagler Beach. They are usually there enjoying a candle lit picnic dinner at one of the numerous beach side picnic tables. We will see you there and welcome to our world here in Palm Coast!

Mike Richards

Mike was born and raised in northern Mississippi. After high school he went to Mississippi State University and graduated with a degree in Business Administration.

While in college Mike worked and played at the Yellowstone National Park. He recalls one of the exciting moments at the Park where he was chased by a small bear! Even though he emphasizes that is was “small,” it was a bear nonetheless.

Mike moved to Maui and stayed there for ten years enjoying the Pacific Ocean breezes. Although the time he spent in Maui was great, he felt it was time to get back closer to home.

Mike has had a career in sales his entire adult life. His Dad instilled in him from a young age that “A mans word is his bond” and these are words he lives by. He applies these words in his daily business practices, attributing his success to honesty and integrity.

Today, Mike lives in Palm Coast and is very active in the community. He welcomes new business and visitors to Flagler County. He is recognized and has been awarded for his involvement with the Chamber of Commerce as a diplomat member. He is a resource that connects the needs of businesses and residents. From plumbers, electricians, storage, or security; if you need it, Mike can get it for you or will know someone who can.

Mike’s bio would not be complete without mentioning his two boys, Rocky and Bandit who are dapple dachshunds. They can be a handful at times but he wouldn’t have it any other way! Mike enjoys getting to know each one of his customers and meeting their unique real estate needs. His fun and caring personality convert his customers into friends for life.
