“We used Cristina to buy our home 4 years ago and she kept in touch throughout the years. It was a no brainer to go to her when we were selling our home. She was so helpful throughout the process from walking through our home and giving us tips to stage, to walking us through the paperwork to list and giving us recommendations, she was incredible. It’s a bummer that we moved out of the area, because she is the best real estate agent around.” ~Client Review
“From the moment we met Cristina, we knew she would be the Realtor for us. After a quick tour of our home, Cristina outlined her plan for selling our home and brought examples and documents to review. We appreciated her knowledge and confidence as we started the stressful process of selling our home. She responded quickly to all questions and concerns in a thoughtful and positive manner, and represented our interests to prospective buyers and agents. Cristina provided insight and advice on how best to deal with issues that came up, and kept us appraised of important information. Cristina’s team and vendor recommendations helped to ensure the successful sale of our home. I would absolutely recommend Cristina to family and friends.” ~Client Review

She helped negotiate the best contract for our house and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.” ~ Client Review
“We just purchased our first home in Fairfax and we could not have done it without Cristina’s negotiating skills and knowledge! We were out-of-state clients and were looking for a specific type of property and Cristina was super patient with showing us many properties until we found the right one. From the inspection to closing, Cristina and her assistant Stephanie helped us throughout the entire process and I honestly don’t think we would have known what to do without her and her team! I highly recommend Cristina 100% if you are looking to purchase in the DMV!” ~ Client Review
“Cristina is an AMAZING agent. She knows her stuff, and it shows every step of the buying and selling process. She gave us expert advice on how best to prepare our home for sale, accurately read our housing market and sold our home within days for more than we could ever have expected. She was available every step of the way, and went above and beyond by connecting us with a real estate agent of her caliber within the new city and state we were moving. My husband and I can’t say enough great things about Cristina – she is truly in a league of her own!” ~ Client Review
“BEST experience ever, especially as first time home buyers. Cristina is very knowledgeable and helped us navigate the competitive housing market. She was ALWAYS responsive and truly made us feel as though we were her only client, even though she was extremely busy.

We HIGHLY recommend Cristina if you are looking to buy in Northern Virginia (Metro DC area).” ~ Client Review

She negotiated on our behalf with countless agents and was honest, but optimistic with every offer we submitted. Her responsiveness and flexibility in showing us houses last minute made me feel like we were her only clients. Cristina is so knowledgeable, personable, and goes out of her way to fight for her clients.” ~ Client Review
