Kristen Shemesh was welcomed into The Barach Group in 2015. Kristen represents buyers, sellers, and investors who are interested in Philadelphia’s blossoming real estate market. As an agent, Kristen is known for her eagerness to please her clients and her ability to match clients with homes that are perfectly compatible with their needs.
Kristen grew up in Lawrenceville, NJ, and moved to Philadelphia in 2001 to attend Drexel University. She graduated with a degree in Corporate Communications and entered into the service industry in managerial and event planning positions. During this time, Kristen and her husband acquired four investment properties throughout the Philadelphia area. After realizing her passion for buying and selling properties, Kristen transitioned into the real estate industry and has never looked back.
For 14 years, Kristen has lived in Fishtown and has seen it evolve into the strong community it is today. Being in real estate has allowed her to be more involved in the growth of each individual neighborhood throughout the Philadelphia Area. As an investor in real estate herself, Kristen is enthusiastic about helping clients unlock the potential of the Philadelphia real estate market. She loves helping people find a home where they can start a family and create lifelong memories.
In her downtime, Kristen enjoys working out and spending time with her friends and family-including her fur-baby, an energetic Jack Russell Terrier.
