Antoinette Metheney

Realtor - Listing Specialist

Antoinette grew up in Albuquerque, NM. She left for a few years while serving in the Air Force.  When she separated from the military she came home so her children could grow up with family.  Antoinette was a pediatric speech language pathologist for 15 years. She was inspired to pursue a career in Real Estate after buying her home with the assistance of Kiki and Kristina of K2 Realty Team.  The experience was minimally stress free and they developed a friendship through the process.  That is when she realized that real estate was about developing long term relationships and not single transactions.  The prospect of being a facilitator for members of her community, in what can be a very daunting process, was a welcomed challenge.   
When Antoinette isn’t working hard to help her clients through a seamless real estate transaction, she is spending time with her family, working on her urban farm, cycling, paddle boarding, hiking or gardening.
