Je Suis Kipton Cronkite

Occupation: Art Advisor and Real Estate Sales


Where were you born?

I was born in Oklahoma and enjoyed a balance of city life and life in the country (on a cattle ranch) where I grew up around horses, cattle, dogs, cats and wide open spaces.

In one sentence what is unique about your work?

I have a background in finance and working on Wall Street, a decade of art advisory expertise and promoting and exhibiting emerging artists, and six year experience selling residential real estate in New York.

Why do you do what you do?

My clients challenge me to find real estate and art that suits their lifestyle, for both an investment and aesthetic reasons. I am blessed to work with clients who typically share a mutual appreciation of art and real estate with a strong interest in design. New clients who have a desire to start an art collection are also able to leverage my experience as an art advisor and curator to add a creative edge to their home. The mix between art and design is unique to the world of those in the real estate world. Not many agents can say they are also an art advisor and have a trained eye for design. I do.

What inspires you?

Artists inspire me every day. Thinking outside of the box lends a unique creative focus motivating me to consistently come up with fresh ideas to sell or buy art and real estate. The creative and entrepreneurial influence of artists also encourages me to stay connected to leaders of change in the worlds of art and real estate.

Describe your personal style.

An artistic preppy style with a downtown, yet classic edge.

Your ultimate must-have.

My iPhone 7, a backup charger and a Starbucks.

What superpower would you have and why?

I would love to fly. I would travel the world and go to as many places as possible.

What is next for you?

I'm the art curator for Prive Island in Aventura, Florida and planning new art curation projects in New York and Los Angeles for 2017 and 2018.
