Obtaining a successful real estate Brokerage in multiple cities doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes grit, determination, and an elusive blend of charm, business acumen, and foresight. For Chrishena Stanley, Broker/Owner of STK Property Group, her ability to encompass all these traits have led to her success after years of hard work.
After growing up in Manhattan and witnessing her mother working in real estate, Stanley moved to Miami post-college and was soon licensed to practice in 2003. She later moved to California to work on the commercial side of real estate before returning to her initial area of concentration, residential. She spent time at Coldwell and then Engel & Volkers before ultimately getting her broker’s license and breaking out to start her firm. STK Property Group currently has a presence in Atlanta and Las Vegas.
Chrishena Stanley says the most validating aspect of her chosen career is maintaining relationships with her clients over the years.
“On both ends, I am working hard to satisfy the client; on the listing side, I am working on getting them the absolute top dollar, and when they’re buying, I am negotiating them to get the ideal value.” She says. “I have clients who started out buying a studio condo, and now [years later] I’ve walked them through purchasing their family homes, celebrated them getting married and having multiple kids,” she laughs. “Getting your clients to know you creates a great bond and trust in helping them with their best investments.”
In addition to her Real Estate career and earlier positions at MTV and CNN, Stanley has appeared on WEtv’s “Selling It in the ATL” (2015), a docuseries focusing on the lives of seven women in the Atlanta real estate industry and their exploits as movers and shakers in the market. As to the future of STK Property Group, Stanley says she wants to continue to splice her time between Miami and Las Vegas, steadily maintaining and building her business clientele in both areas.
In her spare time, Stanley enjoys giving back to her communities. She enjoys volunteering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital-Nevada and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas & ReStore. She says she looks forward to giving back more. When she isn’t working or volunteering, she enjoys traveling, time with friends, and exercising with her husband and dogs.
