Kristine Kappel

Kristine Kappel is so excited to combine her love of community-building and 20+ years of experience in marketing, communications, and business development to focus on real estate.


With a passion for service in the San Diego area, Kristine is ready to help with your home buying and selling needs. As a proud member of the Kappel Realty Group at Compass San Diego family, Kristine embodies the values of hard work, integrity, and outstanding client service into everything she does. She prides herself on being a compassionate listener and skilled negotiator with a keen attention to detail.


When Kristine isn’t making homeownership dreams come true for her clients, she enjoys spending time exploring the city, uncovering new hikes, and sampling food from around the world right here in San Diego. You can often find her at the beach with a good book and her toes in the sand. Kristine loves an urban, walkable lifestyle and owns a condo in the bustling Little Italy neighborhood with her boyfriend and two fur cat babies, Muffin and Biscuit, affectionately known as the dough boys. She loves that she can walk or take a short transit ride everywhere, including the famous Little Italy Mercato.


Kristine is a graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead with a degree in Mass Communications and a Minor in Political Science. She has an Executive MBA Certificate from Loyola University Chicago. Originally from North Dakota, Kristine also lived in downtown Chicago for 18 years before relocating to San Diego.


In addition to being a licensed real estate agent, Kristine also manages the marketing and operations for the Kappel Realty Group, the #6 Real Estate Team in San Diego.
