Krista Becka moved to The Valley as a young adult from Overland Park, KS where most of her family still resides. She pursued her education at the University of Arizona, earning a BA degree in 1999. Krista began her career in Phoenix as a loan officer for a private mortgage firm and later worked for the former Countrywide in their wholesale division leading up to the 2007-2008 market crash. The transition into real estate was seamless given her knowledge and experience in the financial sector, problem-solving skills, and well established network with other industry professionals.
Krista's extensive 15+ year tenure as a full-time agent has seen her navigate the diverse and dynamic markets of Scottsdale, Arcadia, Paradise Valley, and other East Valley cities. Her hands on experience as a property owner and investor in these areas adds a unique perspective to her professional insights. Learning from her father who ran his own successful business, she approaches every transaction with the belief that the customer comes first. Trust is the cornerstone of her practice, which fosters loyalty and repeat business as her clients feel valued and understood. Krista has been recognized as a top producer on a nationally accredited Keller Williams team. As a solo agent she ranked in the top 5% and has been featured in Phoenix Magazine. In 2017, she joined Launch Real Estate, an invitation only boutique firm specializing in luxury real estate with agents chosen for their character and high standards of practice, later acquired by Compass to enable a global reach.
Beyond her thriving real estate career, Krista finds joy in an active lifestyle. An avid runner, she has conquered several full marathons, including the prestigious Boston Marathon which she qualified for in 2018. Krista indulges her passion for exploration and adventure through travel with a preference for overseas destinations. She's always up for a round of golf, though she readily acknowledges the need to enhance her skills on the course. Her array of hobbies and interests extends to history, binge-watching educational YouTube videos and podcasts, and a keen fascination with anything related to aviation. A future aspiration is to obtain her pilot’s license.
