Kristen Booth 
Kristen Boothe moved to Casa Linda Estates in the sweltering August of 2011 with her husband Ethan and two sons Austin and Greyson. Ethan and Kristen fell in love with the neighborhood while spending time at Kristen’s mother Brenda’s home on San Saba. Ethan had grown up on 13 acres outside of Fort Worth and longed for a neighborhood with sprawling lawns and outdoor entertainment for his young boys. Kristen, being a realtor knew when she first saw their home on Verano that it would win the heart of even her toughest client. They both realized this would be the neighborhood they would live in for a long time, so they decided to dig in and get involved.
The Boothes joined the CLENA board as a team filling the position VP of Social. Since then Kristen has helped begin the fundraiser and community event Casa Linda Lights, served as VP of Development, and Vice President. In 2013, Kristen and Ethan welcomed their 3rd son Ryder into the world and have been raising their three boys in Casa Linda ever since.
Kristen is the broker of McBride Boothe Real Estate and offices at Casa Linda Plaza. She has been very fortunate to work in the neighborhood and feels especially honored when CLE neighbors trust her with selling their homes. Kristen is a member of HPUMC and serves on the leadership team of the White Rock East Garden Tour. She is excited to serve on the CLENA board as President and looks forward to working with the board to accomplish new goals and endeavors for the amazing community she calls home.
