Kitty comes to real estate from a long, successful career as an interior designer and design build professional. She began her career in Santa Barbara, 30 years ago, and founded her own firm, Design Alchemy Studio, with projects ranging from historic ranches to coastal retreats to luxury boutiques on the West Coast, in Colorado and Europe. Collaborating with clients to help them achieve their dreams has always been a passion for her. Kitty brings her meticulous attention to detail, passion for architecture, and grace in working with clients, to all aspects of the real estate experience. Knowing that each transaction is unique, she loves to think creatively, and problem solve, and she is dedicated to offering excellent service to her clients. Her essential knowledge of both real estate and design & building is a valuable asset to her clients. Her expertise at marketing their property and her ability to show the property in it’s best light inspires confidence. Kitty truly listens to her clients needs and desires, and her understanding of what they are searching for when looking for a property, helps her guide them to their dream home. She brings this philosophy and experience to her partnership with Will Funston, and the clients they serve as the Hudson-Funston Partners at Santa Fe Properties. Kitty loves nature, art, travel and the great outdoors which she shares with her husband and partner, Will, and their three quarter horses and two beloved Golden Retrievers.
