BHL Who/what lives in your house?

KB My husband, Stephen Boyd, my mother-in-law, Margaret Boyd, and Missy, my very spoiled King Charles Cavalier.   Our two daughters are out of college and self-employed but still seem to be in and out.  Not sure when we will really be true empty nesters!

BHL Do you work outside the home?

KB Yes!  I am a residential real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty Peachtree Road. My mom, Holly Boyett, was a successful agent in Atlanta and in the business for many, many years.  In 2015, my daughter Kathryn, a CPA and also a Buckhead resident, joined me as a third generation realtor in the family. I love my job!

BHL What organization that gets most of your volunteer time?

KB We are active members of Peachtree Presbyterian Church.  Also, my husband co-founded “Beautiful Feet,” a ministry under Atlanta Community Ministries for which I volunteer and help keep him organized! I also volunteer for my sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, as recruitment reference board chairman for City of Atlanta private schools.

BHL Are you a native Atlantan or transplanted to the area?

KB I have lived here since I was 5 years old so yes practically native and have been a Buckhead or Brookhaven resident all my years here in the ATL!

BHL Where did you go to college and what was your first job?

KB I am a graduate of the University of Georgia.  My first job was with Rich’s Department Stores (like so many others of you out there) in the corporate finance department.

BHL Favorite ‘pamper yourself’ or splurge item?

KB  My favorites are the sugar pedicure at Nail, Talk & Tan Salon in Town Brookhaven, or the foot rubs at Sole Spa on Pharr Road in Buckhead.  Huff Harrington Home is a favorite for unique and fun splurge gifts!

BHL What’s your guiltiest food pleasure?

KB My husband, Stephen Boyd, my mother-in-law, Margaret Boyd, and Missy, my very spoiled King Charles Cavalier.   Our two daughters are out of college and self-employed but still seem to be in and out.  Not sure when we will really be true empty nesters!

BHL Do you work outside the home?

KB Splitting a steak and a great wine at the bar at Bone’s in Buckhead with my husband is one of our oldest and favorite dining splurges. For pizza night outings, we love Avellino’s Pizzeria at the corner of Windsor Parkway and Osborne Rd in Brookhaven.

BHL Favorite place to walk near your neighborhood?

KB Brookhaven is the best neighborhood for walking.  Sometimes we will take the dog and walk up to Newk’s (Town Brookhaven) for Sunday lunch.  Or, if we are really adventurous, we will take Marta to the Arts Station and walk home to Brookhaven.  No better way to enjoy our city than on foot – you see so much more than by car.

BHL Is working out a part of your day?

KB  I love the flywheel AND flybarre classes at Flywheel Buckhead. Springs Yoga just north of Buckhead is my favorite yoga studio. I also enjoy the variety of classes Capital City Club in Brookhaven.

BHL Best vacation ever?

KB We took our two girls to New Orleans between Christmas and New Year’s a couple years ago.  It was magical.  We stayed at the Windsor Court, ate phenomenal food, and showed the family the beautiful side of the Quarter with antique stores and live music performances. The strength of the New Orleans community with the rebuilding of the Lower Ninth Ward and other devastated areas was so gratifying.

BHL Favorite gadget, gizmo or APP?

KB I live on my iPhone.  Regarding apps, Instagram is my favorite for keeping up with family and friends. And for work, I could not be successful without GoFMLS or Supra which are tools for open houses, managing lock boxes, searching listings, and more.
