When most people meet Betty and Colleen Krika, they tend to think that they’re a mother-daughter duo. The way they interact with one another surely points to closeness, but it’s one that can take you by surprise. Betty is Colleen’s mother-in-law, and the two have been working together for four years now.

Colleen married Betty’s son, David, and the two have always been very close. Family is important to both of them, and during the holidays they are known among their group to talk real estate. Recently, Betty’s granddaughter, Abby, was quick to call her out, “All you people talk about is real estate!”

This makes Betty and Colleen laugh. “That’s who we are!”

Betty’s son and Abby’s father, Peter, is a real estate agent in Chicago. You could say that it’s a family business. Other members of the family have also gone down the real estate path in other parts of the country.

Betty has been in real estate for 12 years, Colleen for eight years. Colleen’s husband, David, is in property management. Both of them couldn’t be happier with their careers, families, and lifestyles. Betty loves taking her grandkids to the beach, and can’t get enough of the beautiful South Walton sunsets. Colleen enjoys taking her bike cruiser out on the 30A paths whenever she can.

Colleen is a native Floridian, from DeFuniak Springs, and she brings what Betty calls “the southern charm” to the duo. 

“I’m from Chicago, and can be fairly straight and to the point. Colleen is soothing,” said Betty.
