Christina Balderas

REALTOR®

Originally from Chicago, Ill, in the early 80’s Christina and her family moved to Austin looking to get away from the harsh Midwest winters. Austin had everything that her family was looking for in a city: family, great schools, plenty of sports (to watch and to participate) and a since of community that was welcoming to all! She has consider herself an Austinite ever since.

After graduating from Texas State University with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Speech Communications, Christina began her professional career as a Technical Recruiter and Resource Manager for various software consulting firms in the Austin area.

Christina has been in the Real Estate industry for 11 yrs, specializing in the UT, Hyde Park and Central Austin areas. Christina joined Realty Austin to focus on her sales transactions. When she is not assisting with your Real Estate needs, Christina can be found playing with her family and friends, watching live sports events, going to hear live music and enjoying everything that makes Austin the best city to live in Texas.

My husband and I think the world of Christina. She assisted us a little over 3 years ago when we bought our house in Lago Vista and we were so impressed by her service at that time that when it came to selling that same house we immediately thought of her. She guided us through the highs and lows of selling our house and has been that light clearing our paths when things have gone awry....and they have gone awry, believe me. We are now in the process of buying our next home and...well.....I wouldn't say that we're 'difficult' clients...we just know what we want and we give ourselves a very wide radius around Austin in order to find what we're looking for. 

Christina has been a real champ when it comes to traveling with us from Johnson City to Cedar Creek, to Giddings, to Lexington, Liberty Hill and Leander...just to name a few. She shares our enthusiasm when looking at houses and it has always been a pleasure speaking with her and sharing our thoughts and opinions with her as she truly listens to what we have to say.

We close on our new house on the 13th and we plan to stay put at least through retirement, but should we ever decide to make a move in the future we will definitely look her up again if she'll have us. Her service is beyond exemplary and I truly can not say enough good things about her.

We were very pleased with Christina. She went beyond the expectation you would expect from your real estate agent. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Using her as our Realtor was the best thing we did while selling and buying our home.

I was soooo happy to work with Christina Balderas. I first contacted her over a year ago, and I was honest about not being ready to buy and just looking. Once in a while, I would call with a question, and she would nicely answer. Never did she push me or made me feel like I was bothering her. When I was ready to buy, I didn't hesitate to call her, and she didn't disappoint. Always there every step of the way, it was a stressful time for me but she made it easier. I will be forever thankful to her for this great buying experience. Thanks Christina!

Christina is efficient, professional, detail-oriented and fun to be with. I just completed my third real estate transaction with Christina, and her guidance was helpful every step of the way. The two purchases I made had multiple offers, and the sale exceeded my expectations. I would certainly recommend her to lead the way through the jungle of today's Austin real estate market.

Christina was beyond amazing. She definitely will be recommended by me to anyone looking to buy in Austin. Beyond that, she left a glowing image in my mind of Realty Austin in general. She is an asset to the company.

Love, love, love Christina Balderas. Christina was always available anytime we needed her! She was always professional and ready to lead us through this maze of house hunting. She provided us with information we were not aware of to make us a more informed buyer all the way to the end of the process. She exceeded our expectations and we will be happy to refer her to anyone we know. Realty Austin has a great associate working with your company. Keep her around.

Christina was extremely helpful and responsive during the search and purchasing process. She always made herself available on our schedule, mostly after 5 pm. There isn't a single thing that would keep me from recommending Christina to anyone in the market. Also, Jennifer was a huge help. She was on top of every deadline and all of the coordination between the numerous entities involved. Her and Christina made for quite the efficient team.

I wanted to convey my high regard and deep appreciation for the hard work and professionalism exhibited by Christina in our house sale and buying another house. She was very astute in the market valuation of our house. It sold in 2 days and we were very happy with the price. Our house buying journey was quite a long and varied one. Two houses we made offers on we rejected after the inspections showed numerous problems. Several other houses we offered on we missed out on because other buyers offered more money. Christina never lost faith. I vividly recall her telling me, "I know there's a house out there for you!" She kept our spirits up when we were skeptical. Today we closed on a lovely house in the Villages of Hidden Lake. It's within walking distance of Lake Pflugerville and we couldn't be happier.

Christina's a keeper. I will definitely recommend her on Yelp and to other people who need an excellent realtor.

Christina was great. I had a tight budget and a narrow idea of what I wanted, and she was very patient with me and always helpful. With her help, I found the perfect place. I would recommend her to others.

Being an out of state buyer already comes with challenges. Finding the right Real Estate Agent is a major challenge. I went to the Realty Austin website and looked through many different profiles and upon reading Christina Balderas's profile, I read she spent time in Chicago which is my home town. I figured I would send out an email not only to her but to other realtors that seemed to be a good fit for my wife and I. Christina was the first to reply. We spoke on the phone soon after. When the conversation was done I hung up the phone with confidence that we had just found our realtor. She was very knowledgeable and confident. I felt as though she was really listening to what I was saying. She is very genuine! She knew what we were looking for and had confidence that she would be able to help us find houses that matched not only our vision but our price range, all without physically meeting. I finally was able to fly out to Austin to physically look at houses and to meet Christina. We hit it the floor running. We saw many houses that matched our criteria in terms of location, amenities, and charm. Christina was also able to see first hand my specific list of things I was looking for, which she picked up and noticed.

One of the great things about Christina is that just from that first meeting she knew exactly what we were looking for and even had my specific list added to her original. She has the experience and the knowledge that helped us along this intense journey. She is extremely professional and communicated with us throughout the entire process which made us feel very taken care of.

After signing our closing papers at the Title company which Christina was there for, my wife and I told her that we will be calling her when it's time to buy house #2. We found our Real Estate Agent! And we would gladly recommend her to family and friends interested in moving to Austin. She really was a pleasure to work with!

We can't wait to have her over for a grill out once we are settled in properly. Thank you Realty Austin for hiring people that really care not only about their jobs but the people they help!

Best real estate firm in Austin. Christina Balderas represented me as listing agent and from day one up to closing and was in constant contact with me. We staged my house together and had multiple offers in a matter of days of my house being listed on MLS! I highly recommend Christina and Reality Austin!

Christina was amazing. I would not be a home owner without her expert a D patient guidance. Her assistant Jennifer kept me on track with all the details and encouragement.

Christina referred me to the best mortgage broker, Janet and her assistant, Joanna. I have been truly blessed. I can't wait to refer others and post excellent reviews.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Christina Balderas. We started working with her over the phone and through email when we were still in Florida. First we looked at rental condos, then houses, then houses to purchase. Christina was very patient and understanding of our circumstances and needs and showed us numerous listings. When we signed the contract to purchase a property in Steiner Ranch, she couldn't have been more helpful. We believe she went beyond the call of duty to make this a good experience for us.

I would recommend Christina to anyone.

Our first impression of Christina held true to the very end of this process, she was very professional but in a very personal and kind way.  We felt very comfortable with her from the start and if this was a "normal" real estate transaction I probably would have been grateful for just that.  However, this was not a normal transaction, at least not in my experience.  The process of selecting a condo to purchase in West Campus is difficult enough given the state most of them are in from both years of rental use and the general nature of undergraduate living standards, but this one took a bizarre twist near the very end which is why I am compelled to write you personally.

As we worked out the final price Christina worked with the other relator to help us all get to a final number.  The seller and other realtor were both, in my experience, hard to work with.  The seller was just difficult, hard to reach and not very realistic but their realtor made Christina's job much, much harder.  Of course I never really knew just how bad he was until closing day came, and went, and still no keys or even a promise to produce them that day.  All through this process I can see now that Christina had buffered us from what she must have been dealing with just to get the negotiations moving.   Finally, and not without considerable effort on Christina's part he produced keys two days later.  This was also a 1031 exchange and I had a delay from the buyer of the other investment property that delayed my ability to purchase this property.  That created yet another obstacle that Christina personally took care of and that was going WAY out of her duty to do.  Last, as if the rest wasn't enough, the lender I had selected realized at the last minute they could not write a loan for this type of property... which really put things in a tailspin.  Once again, Christina came up with just the right lender out of how ever many there must be in Austin who worked a complete funding package in less than 30 days...with a great rate on top of it.

We could not be more pleased with Christina's support through this entire effort and to say she went above and beyond is really, truly an understatement.  She has set the bar very, very high for other Realtors.  She has earned the right to represent us when we decide to sell...no questions, no hesitation.  We know we will be in great hands when that day comes.

Christina was great to work with, and was available to meet with me when it was convenient for me. If she did not know the answers to my questions she would find the person that could answer them and get the information I needed in a timely manner. 

I would certainly recommend her to any of my friends.

John Watson

It has been a great pleasure working with Christina Balderas. She not only exceeded our expectations, but went above and beyond. As Buyers on our end, Christina helped make the process of our purchase stress free and well worth the wait. Even when issues arose that caused delays and concerns; Christina offered her expertise and assistance in finding a solution. Thanks in great part to her, we now are the proud Owners of our condo. And YES, we look forward to a continued working relationship as well as a great friendship with Christina. Rest assure that we will call upon her if and when the need arises in the future.

Fernando & Cynthia Gomez

My association with Christina, in the field of Property Management, has always been a pleasure. She always brought me well qualified applicants for my rental properties and assisted me in the process of moving them in. She is knowledgeable and conveys that professionalism that ensures successful completion to the task at hand.

Marjorie Yancy, Property Manager

It was a pleasure to work with Christina as we searched for a property in the Austin area. Christina was professional, courteous, diligent and stopped at nothing until we found exactly what we were looking for. We greatly appreciated the hard work and effort that she put forth. I would highly recommend Christina to my friends and family.

Fleur Williams

I recently decided to place my home in Hyde Park on the rental market and had the opportunity to work with Christina Balderas. I am currently living in New York City and had to rely on Chris to handle everything for me. Chris was invaluable in getting the house ready to show, renting it within two days after it went on the market and successfully completing the walk-through with the new tenant. Chris used her experience and finesse to complete the transaction and all parties were completely satisfied. I will certainly use Chris again and highly recommend her to anyone who is in the market to rent, lease, buy or sell a property.
