Anna Kilinski, Realtor®, CEO, Team Lead & Listing Partner
Anna Kilinski Brent (a.k.a. Anna K) loves seeing people break through their perceived limitations. She also loves a good challenge, a fierce competition and a chance to flex her impeccable negotiation skills. A fearless leader, bar setter, visionary and coach, Anna isn’t just the brains behind The Anna K Intown Team—she’s the heart. Her genuine care and full investment in the success of every client and team member have propelled AKI to become not just an award-winning real estate team, but Atlanta’s favorite real estate team. Anna K doesn’t do anything halfway.
A New Orleans native who was practically born into real estate, she swore she’d never join the family business. But everything changed in 2006, when she helped a local builder develop new-construction homes inside the city. She got an inside look at how it all comes together, watching something vintage become shiny and new for buyers. Fourteen years later, she’s never looked back.
With a background in construction management and renovating properties, specialties in eco homes and real estate wealth-building, and even a degree in information systems management from the University of Alabama, Anna’s just about done it all. “I love figuring things out, strategizing, being a lever for people's goals—and real estate is a cool vehicle for that.”
In 2018, Anna’s unrivaled Atlanta reputation and no-nonsense, all-in approach to serving her clients earned her the realtor-host spot on Bravo® TV’s “Buying It Blind”, in which she bought new homes on her clients’ behalf (and with their savings)—but without them actually seeing the properties. She’s earned the Millionaire Real Estate Agent accolade year over year since 2014, and Anna K Intown is consistently ranked a Top 10 Team by the Atlanta Board of Realtors.
Anna’s all about helping her clients, colleagues and community win, too. She coaches emerging entrepreneurs on topics like wealth-building and team-building, and supports underserved neighbors through programs and initiatives like Habitat for Humanity and the Bright Futures Academy.
When she’s not changing the face of Atlanta’s real estate landscape, Anna enjoys cooking up her favorite Cajun-style dishes and taking long runs through the leafy streets near her Candler Park/Lake Claire home. She also makes time to hike, ski and otherwise hang outdoors with her most-beloved people: her two boys, her husband and her closest friends. And if she gets some time to herself on a perfect Atlanta day? “There’s nothing better than a workout, a donut and a glass of wine—in that order.”
