Creating More Demand for Your Listing with FL Real Estate Agent Kristina Mollo | The Home Staging Show Season 8 Episode 6
On the show today, I have real estate agent Kristina Mollo on the show and we talk about the process of both buying and selling a home, and what today’s buyers are looking for. When it comes to selling real estate, whether you are a home stager, a real estate agent or a home seller, it is important to understand what today’s buyers are looking for and how they think. Having worked on both buyer’s and seller’s side, Kristina knows what today’s buyers are looking for and understands the importance of putting the home’s best foot forward when it comes to selling real estate.
During the show, we discussed how to make listings stand out, leveraging social media, ways to create demand for your listings and what makes great homes hard to sell.

About Kristina Mollo
Hey there, I'm Kristina!
I like to call myself the Home Matchmaker because of my experience in the Wedding industry.
Diving into Real Estate, in early 2017, was a big step after previously spending over 6 years working in the Event Planning Industry. As the lead Weddings and Events Sales Manager for Big City Catering, a boutique style company based in Central Florida, I felt it was time for something new! Real Estate seemed like the obvious option. Having dealt with 100’s of Brides and Grooms, I found a way to bond with each person I met in a unique way. Charisma, patience, and professionalism are key especially when working in a highly emotional sales process (including buying a home for the first time!)
I have always had a passion for people, home design, and much love for Central Florida. Having lived all over the region for the past 10 years, I am thrilled to be able to show my clients around a place so special to me.
When I'm not working, you'll probably find me on at the dog park with my pup, Maisey, traveling to Sarasota to visit my family, or exploring the town with my fiancé, Jon (we LOVE the historic feel of Downtown Mount Dora + Downtown Sanford)!
I look forward to being not only a knowledgeable resource for home buyers + sellers but a friend that can walk them through this exciting process. I can't wait to learn more about you!
