Clients consider Christina very unique and atypical. She is an approachable and trustworthy agent who does not try to sell her
clients; rather, she provides support and skills without pressure. This
helps build a comfort level and inspire confident decisions. Christina believes in educating clients by showing apartments within
their budget to make them aware of all their options, and then she adjusts
from there. “I am upfront and honest about the process and what is available, never misleading. It’s important for people to feel good about an apartment and make their own informed choice, the best kind.”
Originally from Saratoga Springs, NY, Christina remembers being fascinated when visiting the city and walking around the West Village, one of the areas she specializes in rentals and sales today. Vowing that she’d one day return permanently, she is now a seasoned New Yorker who has found homes for her clients in every neighborhood, from Harlem and the Upper East and West Sides to Chelsea, Gramercy, the East Village, Lower East Side, even Brooklyn. “You name it, I’ve found a great home there!”
A graduate of SUNY Albany with a degree in Theatre and English, Christina previously enjoyed a successful career in the restaurant industry upon arriving in NYC. She excelled to management, working in some of the most highly rated establishments in Manhattan and best known restaurateurs including Danny Meyers, Jean-
Georges, Stephen Hanson, Drew Nieporent and Robert DeNiro.
Her experience has enabled her to adapt to many situations and
personalities, meet the discerning needs of a diverse clientele, and
maintain her professionalism and grace under fire. “My clients know I
am always there for them.” Whether you are looking to rent or buy, or sell, Christina will be there for you too.
“Christina is a very energetic and enthusiastic person. She does not mind going upstairs and downstairs and checking places out until you find the right apartment. She has an intuitive sense of what might work for you, and very importantly, she listens to your preferences: first, I did not know myself what I really wanted. After she had shown me a range of different places, I was able to formulate my wish list: it had to be a low rise building in walking distance to my work with an outdoor space. And low and behold, she found an apartment exactly to my specifications within a week’s time. Pretty impressive!”
I immediately loved Christina the instant I met her! As many people know, looking for the perfect apartment in NYC can be a very stressful and daunting task, but Christina’s calm and carefree attitude really helped to put my nerves at ease. She was extremely knowledgeable of the rental market in NYC (and in my opinion, always had the best listings) and was helpful in managing my expectations. Most importantly, Christina LISTENED to my needs and what was important to me and never once tried to pressure or convince me to take an apartment that I didn’t feel comfortable with. She made every effort to show me as many apartments that fit my requirements as needed in order for me to find the right one. She never complained or seemed annoyed with my indecisiveness, which really helped me trust her! I really consider my apartment to be a diamond in the ruff, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. Christina really was amazing, and I will continue to recommend her to everyone I know!!
I felt like I could really trust Christina. She was energetic and knew exactly what I wanted. Christina, you’re my broker for life!
