There’s a good reason why Chrishena is a major player in the new high-rise skyline of downtown Atlanta: she brings a bit of a Big Apple attitude. When she was growing up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Chrishena’s dad used to flip properties and her mom, Bernice, specialized in NYC condo deals for 15 years.
Chrishena attended the prestigious Dwight School where Paris Hilton was briefly one of her classmates. She went on to attend Marymount Manhattan College where she earned a BA in Communication Arts. After college Chrishena spent time working at CNN Financial news and in radio. Before moving to Atlanta in 2007, Chrishena lived in both Miami Beach and Los Angeles.
It was during the real estate mortgage bubble of 2007 that Chrishena earned her chops as a specialist in Atlanta's high-rise condo real estate. She weathered the market when it burst and has been a major force in helping Atlanta’s Midtown and Downtown see a solid resurgence in value. Today, Chrishena is known for her new construction condo saavy. She foresees Atlanta one day having a skyline to rival that of Manhattan.
Chrishena’s brokerage includes her mother, who is an Atlanta native, and is tapped into more of the “old money” estate properties. Chrishena has a boyfriend who splits his time between Canada and Atlanta. In her spare time, Chrishena is active in social causes including animal welfare, Habitat for Humanity and local Atlanta Arts and Culture. She has two dogs named Max and Buddy.
