Meet the Team

Kristen Hamilton

Real estate professional and interior designer Kristen Hamilton believes that everyone should live in a home they truly love – a place that represents their personal style while reflecting the beautiful story of their life. A creative visionary with a passion for all things home, she founded Hamilton Homes alongside her husband, Dane. For years, Kristen has helped homeowners bring their vision of home to life with her inspiring design and intentionally curated spaces.

Originally from Barrington, Illinois, Kristen attended college at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, where she studied broadcast journalism and was a member of the TCU Cheer team. Formerly a morning TV feature reporter, Kristen followed a job opportunity in Fort Myers, Florida, where she met Dane. They got married in Tampa, and then moved to Dane’s hometown of Winter Park, Florida to plant their roots and start their family together. They enjoy being outdoors, going to the beach, and spending time with their son, Blake. For more on Kristen’s journey, check out her article on the blog, “From Morning TV to Home Renovations.”

Dane Hamilton

Dane grew up in Winter Park, Florida, and is an expert in construction and development. He studied civil engineering and business at the University of Florida. Dane began his career gathering valuable field supervision experience with a commercial general contractor in Orlando, working on large distribution and retail shopping centers. It was also during this time that he purchased his first property and began his dream of real estate investing.

From commercial construction, Dane transitioned into land development, working for a premier master developer in Lake Nona. Then, he moved to Tampa/St. Pete to marry Kristen, where he expanded his skillset into building homes, mentored by the locally renowned Ben Gelston at Canopy Builders in St. Petersburg, FL. There, Dane and Kristen put their skills together: buying, selling, wholesaling, designing, renovating, and building homes. With their first child on the way, they decided to make the move back to Orlando to be close to family.

“God has truly been so good to us. 5 years ago, I would’ve had no idea I’d be where I am today with a beautiful wife and healthy baby boy. Kristen and I love what we do, we believe in the power of faith (and “home”), and we’d love to find a way to share our expertise with you and help you achieve your goals!” – Dane

Let’s make something beautiful together.
