Cristina Valdes provided wonderful services in finding our new home in Austin. Moving from Arizona made the hunt a little more difficult, but she handled it beautifully.

I just bought my first house and could not have done it without Cristina Valdes. I was very intimidated by the idea of buying a house, and she made me feel completely at ease. She was patient and listened and helped me find the perfect place. Once I made the offer she did everything in her power to make sure everything went smoothly, and it did! I will be recommending her to anyone who will listen!

I'm writing to let you know that Cristina was a really good sport. We had 2 absentee sellers and a 3rd required signature, each of us from a different city outside of Austin. She and Karen at the title company were wonderful about dealing with our technical difficulties, helping my ill tenant move out of the loft in time for closing, and securing me an offer that was reflective of the present seller's market.  Thanks to Cristina!

Cristina just helped my husband and I buy our first home. She was nothing but professional and helpful every step of the way. When we had a million questions, or when we needed recommendations for service providers, she was there to offer suggestions and answers. The whole buying process was smooth from beginning to end, and we love our new home!  To sum it up Cristina is friendly, truthful, reliable, and one of the best real estate agents I know. I would gladly refer Cristina to anyone looking to buy a home in Austin!

Mandy Krivohlavy

Upon retirement, I sold my home in New Hampshire and then bought a home here in Austin. Cristina Valdes was recommended to me by my son and daughter-in-law who had used Cristina as their Realtor when they bought their Austin home back in 2005. I am so glad I did as she made this transition so enjoyable and pleasant. Cristina listened to my wish list and found houses for me to look at that were on my list. She gave pros and cons based on what I was looking for. Whenever I had a question or concern she was always right there to give an honest response or solution. I truly felt I could always trust Cristina. During the course of time that I worked with Cristina to find the house of my dreams, Cristina went beyond the typical job of Realtor. It took about a year to sell my property in NH (due to the economy). When the NH closing kept getting postponed due to the buyers bank, Cristina stepped in to help me find out why it kept getting postponed and when it was going to actually happen (which was 11 days later). I could not get a straight answer during my inquiry. It was less than a month from the time I found my Austin home that I moved in! I would highly recommend Cristina to anyone wishing to buy a home in Austin. She is trustworthy, hard-working, never leaves you hanging, and helps you purchase a home that YOU want! Even after the closing she is there to help you in any way she can. She is a friend as well as a Realtor. I can't say enough good things about having Cristina. She is one of the best!

Linda Foye

Christina Valdes was an exceptional Realtor. She helped us find the perfect home and was on top of all the transactions from start to finish. I would definitely recommend her for her knowledge and professionalism.

Ariel Henderson, Facebook Review

Working with Cristina Valdes was great. I would recommend her to any of my friends that are looking for a house. She was very helpful, patient, and understanding.

Anthony Castaneda

Our experience with Christina Valdes is always excellent. She is very knowledgeable, and good at following up on details. I have recommended her to two people in the last two days!

Cecelia Russell

Cristina Valdes is THE best realtor in Austin. Responsive, patient, a good listener, and always looking out for just the right place for me. Thanks Cristina!

Kristopher Potrafka, Facebook Review

It was a pleasure to work with Cristina Valdes for the second time. She is professional, personable, prompt, effective, and organized, and manages to pull it all off with easy grace even when the pressure is on. I especially appreciate the time she spends educating her clients about every aspect of buying an investment property--from construction to the current real estate market and their options--and the hand-holding she provides when things get a little more complicated than expected. This is a welcome change from our previous experience with real estate agents, and we appreciate enormously Cristina's assistance, advice and calm and reassuring presence every step of the way--before, during and after the purchase. She even agreed to help us lease our new property at what must be a particularly hectic time for an agent. We will definitely work with her again and will continue to recommend her to everyone we know.

Adria Frizzi

Cristina Valdes is great. She's the best real restate agent ever, by far. Realty Austin is lucky to have her!

Patrick Kell

I would just like to take a minute to sing the praise of Cristina Valdes. I'm sure this will sound like a typical cliche praise, but Cristina truly made my first home purchase stress free. Knowledgeable, patient, nice and accessible and any other word you can think of truly describes her. I went out to see houses with her only once and that day I put an offer in and closed before a month. It was pretty remarkable, but she truly helped me find my perfect first home. It was a real difference from the nightmare of a real estate agent I had originally picked! THANK YOU CRISTINA!

Raul Tapia, Facebook Review

I truly was blessed to have the opportunity to work with Cristina Valdes. She made my home purchase as painless and stress free as possible and I couldn't be more grateful. Realty Austin, you truly do have a amazing agent working for you.

Adria Frizzi

Cristina was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable, accessible and highly organized. Buying a house was a lot easier than I thought it would be!

Perla Cavazos

As a first time home buyer, I had lots of questions, uncertainties, and was nervous. I worked with Cristina Valdez to purchase my first home and she immediately made me feel at ease. She was so helpful and patient with me. I have had a few follow-up questions in the month since I made the purchase and she always guides me through every question. Cristina never pressured me and really helped me evaluate houses so that I felt like I got a good home for me and a strong investment for my future.

Anne Jeffers, Facebook Review

Cristina was great all around. As a first-time home buyer, it would not be an exaggeration to say that I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, and Cristina walked me through every step of the process with patience and poise. At no point did I feel that I was in any but the most capable hands, and I would happily and confidently recommend her to any friends who are searching for a home.

Eddie Lehwald

Recently my husband and I had the good fortune to work with RealtyAustin agent Cristina Valdez. We found Cristina to be highly professional and extremely knowledgeable regarding all aspects of purchasing a home in Austin. Being from out of town it was important for us to have an agent that would return our calls promptly and answer our many questions. She was patient, helpful, accessable and really exceeded our expectations. On the personal side she was very pleasant to be around and has a great sense of humor. It was very stressful to attempt to buy a home long distance and I do think if we hadn't had Cristina as our agent we might have given up the search at this time. She really made the process so much easier for us. Realty Austin is lucky to have her as an agent.

If we invest in a property in the future we will certainly be calling Cristina. I have already recommended her to several friends of mine.

Kathy Vellard

Cristina is amazing! She is thorough, detailed, and goes the extra mile.  Loved working with her!

Linda Medina

Cristina is fabulous and a real asset to your team.  I cannot say enough good things about my experience with her.  She was knowledgeable, found what I wanted when I myself didn't know what I wanted, held my hand all the way through, and has been nothing but professional and cheerful.  The fact that she remained professional, cheerful -- and accessible -- makes her all the more remarkable.  As a realty company, and I think you were lucky to have her.

Julie Unruh

Cristina is passionate and very knowledgeable about Austin real estate. She did everything she could to make our home buying experience very smooth by answering all of our questions and guiding us through the negotiating, financing, inspecting and closing processes effortlessly. I highly recommend Cristina if your thinking about purchasing a new home or just relocating to Austin. Thanks again Cristina!

Sunshine Vanover

My husband and I are very happy with Cristina's insightful professional service. She is always patient and kind to guide us through the home buying process here in Austin. We really appreciate that Cristina listened to our needs very closely. After looking at many many many houses, when the right house came along, we were able to see it right away, make an offer and get it under contract within a few days. Cristina was very supportive during this process. Her great relationship with people in the industry made for an easy choice in lender and home inspector, and they all provided us great service. I would definitely recommend Cristina to my friends and family.

Haruka Meyer

Cristina is a a great Realtor. She listens to what you want and then works extremely hard and effectively to find what you need. I always looked to Cristina when I thought about buying or selling, and when I refinanced, I sought her advice and her expertise on finding a company to help me. I always recommend her to friends, colleagues, and family because I know she will take great care of them.

Texanna Turner

Cristina is an expert in her field and has a passion for real estate. She made me feel comfortable and reassured me through the entire home buying process. With her as my agent buying a home was a smooth process and easier than I ever thought possible. She is NOT interested in making a quick buck and dumping you after the sale. She really and truly wants to match individuals with the right homes that they will love for years to come not only as a place to live but as a financial investment as well.

Thor Steinfeldt

Found us a great home and lead us through the purchasing process in a very organized manner. Will definitely hire for the sale of our home.

Dan Duncan

Cristina is a true full-service realtor. As a first time home buyer, she has been a perfect fit for me. She has helped me with everything from finding a lender and giving financial and remodeling advice to formulating a search strategy. Cristina is very patient with picky clients like myself who need to look at a LOT of places to figure it out. She is very thorough and proactive, and does her homework. She regularly re-evaluates clients’ goals and adjusts the game plan around the client’s feedback, while also providing her own, valuable insight based on many years of experience. I tried a couple of other realtors a few years ago, but gave up on my search because they weren’t hands on and I was a bit lost on next steps to take. Cristina takes the work out of it for the client and understands your needs and is able to be proactive. She’s a great partner to have!

Jamie Oliver

Cristina is an amazing real estate agent and business professional. In 2008, I moved to the Austin area.Cristina provided me incredible service in looking for a new home. Cristina was knowledgeable about neighborhoods, property taxes and home values....all the key elements you would ever need to know about the market. Additionally, if I had a question which Cristina didn't know the answer to....she was diligent in finding out the answer. Finally, Cristina is the type of agent that does not just "sell" houses...Cristina PARTNERS with her clients and provides them the type of uncompromising service which is so very rare these days!

Beth St. Paul

Cristina really listened upfront to what we wanted, and seemed to instantly "get it". She showed us properties we liked and saved us loads of time. She's calm, professional, and at the same time fun. We've been in a house we love for 5 years now, and we turn to Cristina every time we have property questions. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Molly O'Halloran

Cristina is exceptionally good at finding and selling homes. She broadened my knowledge and experience of the real estate world and I will never go back to the old school way of buying and selling homes. I recommend her without any reservation knowing that she will provide superb service.

David Smythe-Macauley

Cristina made our first home buying experience seamless, fun and relatively stress-free. She boiled down the details but wasn't dismissive. A whole-hearted recommendation.

Clint Bishop

After 8 weeks working with someone else in the summer of 2005, we had just about given up hope of finding a home in East Austin before our sublet ran out. We eventually parted ways with our first realtor because she couldn't comprehend what we were looking for (an affordable old house biking distance from downtown) and she couldn't move at the speed of the market. After interviewing several people, we decided to work with Cristina Valdes, who was recommended by a colleague. What a difference working with the right realtor can make! After a single lunch, Cristi understood our priorities. She clearly had a keen knowledge of the local market and the housing stock. After 8 painful weeks working with someone else, we literally spent 1 hour looking at houses with Cristi and were under contract on a home 24 hours later. Post-sales support is equally amazing. I highly recommend Cristina to others.

David Brearly

Cristina went over and above my expectations of a Real Estate Agent. From the beginning, she paid close attention to what we indicated we wanted in a home and showed us only properties that aligned with our dreams. She then worked closely with us on all aspects of home buying and made sure we were comfortable up until the day we received our keys at closing! I continue to go to Cristina for homeowner information and refer clients to her all the time. She is very knowledgeable and is always happy to lend her expertise. I have been very pleased with the personal service Cristina provides. She continues to touch base with us to ask if we need anything. She takes great pride in the services she provides! Cristina Valdez is a a pleasure to work with. My husband and I highly recommend her!

Liz Carrizal

I have professionally known Cristina since 2006 and have found her to be an excellent source of knowledge and expertise in my area of livelihood, Austin Real Estate Investment. She is well studied, confident, and most of all a pleasure to work with. I, without hesitation, recommend her often to my closest friends when asked. I would be happy to talk more with anyone considering a business relationship with her.

Jay Otto

On a regular basis I recommend Cristina to friends looking to buy or sell homes. She makes what is, for some, a difficult enterprise into a pleasant and productive experience. She's delightful to work with and very knowledgeable.

Jennifer Chenoweth

Cristina worked with my family on several occasion and always provides expert personal service. Her understanding of my needs and guidance was what helped me to find exacting what I was looking for. I live in NJ and will eventually relocate to Texas. The long distance added a layer of difficulty in communication that she seamlessly overcame. I cannot speak more highly of the Cristina- a more than competant professional and a lovely person with whom to work. I will (and do) recommend her to anyone and I do not recommend people unless I have complete confidence in their abilities.

Candace Goldstein

Finding or selling a home can be easy, approachable, and exciting with Cristina Valdes. Her extensive knowledge of real estate in Texas, and Austin in particular, has satisfied many people I know personally, and helped us find our new home 3 years ago. Cristina's services are highly recommended to those looking for a great agent to represent them.

Jose Gomez

Cristina helped us find our house when we moved to Austin form New York City. She patiently drove me and my partner through all of the central neighborhoods describing the pros and cons of each of them. She took the time to really get to know what our needs were and brought up good points for us to consider. Once we closed on the house, she helped by making sure our cat Miles had a kitty litter box ready for him when we arrived. She even sent her husband over to light our water heater for us! Throughout the years, Cristina has assisted us with recommendations on home related matters from property tax protest to plumbing supply companies. She’s a wealth of information before, during and after the sale.
