Say Yes to Yellow
from Krystine Edwards
Krystine Edwards began a real estate career in Charleston, SC. She and her husband enjoyed flipping several homes on their own. One project that launched her design career and his construction company was a complete renovation of an abandoned Charleston single. The “Queen Street project,” as it was called, was a huge undertaking. What the house was and what it became was huge for them.
From that point on, Krystine began helping her real estate clients find homes with potential. She would sell them the home, create a design plan and bring her husband’s construction company to complete the work. In September 2014, she formally announced her new design career. She has been creating beautiful spaces for her design and real estate clients ever since.
