About Kristy Dugan

Why do you like working in the real estate industry?

Real estate pulled me in first as a hobby then as a profession. Right out of college, I was fascinated by construction and DIY projects and later by investing in real estate. For many years, I worked in sales and the financial industry while continuing to play in real estate from the sidelines. After completing my MBA at UofL in 2010, I recognized that real estate as a career offered that perfect mix of entrepreneurship, finance and sales that I was looking for. The making-a-difference in the lives of people is certainly an added bonus! Now, I lead a small team of Realtors supported by Semonin as our brokerage.

In what year did you become affiliated with Semonin Realtors®?


Why do you choose to affiliate your business with Semonin?

It was important to me to align with a brokerage that possessed a stellar reputation in the community, one with core values that match mine and one that has the resources to support high production levels.
