With a kind of self-awareness most can only hope to achieve, shereflects on the experiences that shaped her into who she is today, as this month's featured Gibson Sotheby's International Realty agent.
I'm always in awe of creative minds, and have a massive appreciation for people who have been given the gift of creative talent," Kyle says. "I think I inherited the love and aspiration from my mother, she notes, discussing the special quality within that allows her to see loveliness in small details.
Kyle's mother worked hard to provide for her family. A single, working parent, she labored intenselyto give Kyle a colorful childhood.
She wanted to surround herself with beauty, and I get that so much."
Scrapingtogether her savings, Kyle's mother would purchase beautiful fabrics andsew intricate pillows and drapes by hand for decoration. Thisdeep dedication to detailstuck with a young Kyle. Its helped her forge her passion for quality, apparent both in her career and personal life.
There is something amazing about a well designed room, a painting that makes you stare,or a pair of shoes that makes your jaw drop."
Impressively, however, Kyles creative right brain is balanced by an equal abilityfor logical reasoning. Her path to real estate was calculated and deliberate. Having realized her passion at an early age, she made all the right moves to position herself for a long and successful career even if it meant giving her energy to another field first.
I went the corporate path until the moment I could jump ship, Kyle recalls. To fully fund her education and plan ahead for the future, she donated her time to a career in recruiting after college. Though she found great success here, it was simply a stepping stone to the occupation of her dreams.
Her path to Gibson Sotheby's International Realty was forged on persistence and a natural talent for negotiation. Kyle was given the opportunity to show what she could do, and the rest is history, she says.
In her free time, Kyle enjoys spending time with her fearless five-year-old son, skiing in the winter, and boating and swimming in the summer. In all seasons, Kyle enjoys dining out and experiencing Bostons many fine restaurants. Her favorite spots include some of Bostons best in outdoor dining, as theres something about sitting outside with food and a cocktail with good friends and family while people watching withwhich, we cant help but agree!

She also advocates for young people, supporting the Plummer House, a foster care center for young people, and helping sponsor families around the holiday seasons.
