So nice to Meet You

In 2007 and 1987, Lara and Kris respectively made the best decisions of their lives by moving to Happy Valley. For Lara, they considered many other places but fell in love with State College the first time they drove into down; ‘I love the sense of small town… running into friends at the grocery store and children walking home from school.’ Equally important for Lara and Kris is the excitement and energy that is here; Broadway shows come to town, football weekends make the town nearly burst at the seams and a ton of opportunity and diversity is brought through Penn State. It did not take long for either of them to call this home. 

Whether it looks like you may be moving to town, having to pack up and head on your next adventure, or are ready to consider your next Happy Valley home, we’d be delighted to walk alongside you. We are passionate about this place, the people, the homes, and the community.

Better Together

In November 2021 a simple email and a delightful lunch led to the formation of the KINGSHIPP CARTER | HAHAHAN group at KBB Realtors. We were so excited to welcome Kris into the KBB family and to develop a partnership rooted in the common goal to provide the very best client experience possible. Kris brings enthusiasm, energy, and a delightful spirit as well as years of experience to the group. With our passion for helping people, we know this merger will allow us to provide an even better ability to serve our clients with excellence through exploration of improved systems and a continued commitment to discovering new and cutting-edge techniques for effective service.
