Cristina Valdés

Broker Associate


Since 2001, Cristina Valdés has helped clients buy, sell, and invest in real estate in Austin, Texas. As a top-rated REALTOR® in Austin, she has directed her efforts towards exceeding clients’ expectations before, during and after each transaction. Clients trust in her quality service, and as a result, they develop long-term relationships and friendships. These relationships have enabled her to work exclusively by referral and helped her become a top REALTOR® in Austin.

Clients trust in Cristina's professionalism, great service, expertise, and commitment. Consequently, they continue to refer friends and family to her for the same exceptional care and reliability. If you are thinking about buying, selling, or investing, Cristina would like to work with you, too.

Her time-tested systems net maximum value for sellers and her strategic processes get buyers homes that are a great fit in any market. Whatever type of endeavor, she has systems in place to take you through the process efficiently. Her efforts will instruct you on what to expect and help bring clarity to your real estate decisions. Whether you are a first-time buyer, first-time seller, or a seasoned investor, she can help you develop a better appreciation and understanding of the process, while improving your bottom line.

Cristina has helped well over 400 clients buy and sell homes. During that time, she also personally purchased and renovated at least a dozen homes. Some for long-term investments, others were resold. In the early ‘90s, her first investments were two duplexes in Southeast Austin and a four-plex in El Paso. Those properties eventually helped her buy fixer-uppers in East Austin. That is when she started looking for contractors who could help her, and lenders who would finance these projects. Having learned what pitfalls to avoid, she can then share that valuable knowledge and experience with her clients.

The result of her experience as a REALTOR®, real estate investor, and remodeler, is that she can articulate information that adds value to each transaction and help clients achieve their real estate goals efficiently. These skills have helped maintain her status as a top REALTOR® in Austin and proactive trusted advisor to her clients.

Transitioning from El Paso to Austin in 1998 was a gift for Cristina and she has worked hard in the Austin community to show her gratitude. She is active in her East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood and is an avid supporter of literacy in at-risk populations and affordable housing.

Cristina currently lives in Central Austin. She enjoys the close proximity to downtown, Rainey Street, restaurants, coffee shops, and the amazing Ann and Roy Butler Boardwalk and Hike and Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake. You can often find her walking the lake or enjoying a new restaurant in the neighborhood. She believes that every day is an opportunity to show her gratitude for all that life in Austin has afforded her.

As many have said before, Cristina has played a huge role in my home buying process. She helped to negotiate add-ons and worked patiently with us as we were demanding for things to be corrected. Cristina's knowledge in the market has helped us make the decision more swiftly and decisively. Her supporting attitude has helped me to self-reassure that I made the right choice for my family. All in all, I'm very glad to have Cristina and her team on our side throughout this buying process. I look forward to working with her again in the future for investment opportunities in both selling and purchasing.

I have now worked with Cristina on 3 transactions: she helped me purchase my first home 6 years ago, then helped me find a new place and sell the other one this year. There are 2 important things to know about Cristina: she knows her stuff (like REALLY knows it), and she is an educator at heart. I knew nothing about purchasing a home, and she guided me through every step, teaching me at every turn so I could make the best possible decision. She is patient and positive, and she kept my hopes alive when I thought I would NEVER find the right place. She was right; eventually, we found the perfect home, and Cristina wrote an offer that put us at the front of the pack. In fact, the woman who sold us the home was a Realtor, and she told us there were a lot of offers, and we got the house because Cristina put together an offer that no one could compete with. I have trusted her with all of my real estate transactions and will continue to as long as I'm in Austin. I would recommend her to anyone - she is absolutely one of the best. BONUS - Her team is AMAZING. You will feel supported every step of the way, from the first showing to the closing day.

My little family relocated from California to the Austin area this past summer and were lucky enough to have Cristina as our Realtor. She organized online meetings with us to get to know us and our wants and needs in a home. She truly wants to make sure you are all on the same page. She gave us tons of advice and went the extra mile. Since we were remote, she went to each of our favorite homes and took notes for us. We planned to visit Austin for a week, and she had about 5 days to schedule as many homes as possible. She was very understanding when we had a family emergency and had to cancel some of our appointments last minute. During that week, Cristina helped to keep us focused even when we were overwhelmed with so many homes. Her assistant Marianne also helped answer any questions or research anything we needed in aa timely manner. We finally settled on a home and have been there for over 2 months and love it! I highly recommend hiring Cristina as your Realtor - you will find your dream home!

Cristina has been great. She was referred to our family by a friend. She has helped with the purchase and sale of my parents, and sister's homes in addition to ours. We were worried that the sale of our house would take a while. She advised us on everything from pricing to presentation. Not only did Cristina do an amazing job, but our buyer was represented by Realty Austin as well. It was a great experience all around. Cristina will be helping with the sale of my mother's home in the near future.

Cristina Valdés was great to work with. Everything was very smooth. She is a true professional. We would highly recommend working with Cristina and her team.

I had a great experience with Cristina and her assistant, Marianne. I don’t think we would’ve gotten our house if it wasn't for her hard work, quick responses, and dedication. She really took the time to listen to our needs and made sure everything was done on time and quickly.  I appreciated the fact she was there at our closing and still checks in with us. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking at buying or selling because I know she will give them 100% of her time and hard work to make sure they got the home or price they wanted.

I cannot imagine a better real estate agent than Cristina Valdes. Cristina was with us every step of the way as we sold our house and bought a new one this spring. She educated us on financing, ultimately helping us figure out the best, safest way to buy our new house before selling our old one, and how to time all of that. (She was also ready to advise us if we'd decided to keep our house as a rental. She's educated on it all!) I think it's also important to note that she made a point of checking back in later to ask what our experience had been like with the bank before she continued recommending it to other clients. She also connected us to an amazing local lender who got us a great deal on our load. In addition to all of this, she and her wonderful assistant Marianne kept us on track with SO MANY DETAILS and made sure nothing fell through the cracks. She held our hand through our various inspections and pre-inspections and advised us on what to fix and not to fix, and which vendors to use (all of whom were STELLAR). The stager she used for our house did an incredible job, and I know it's a big part of why our house sold so quickly. In addition to all of this, I believe in Cristina as a human being with deep values. I cherish her approach to life and work and look forward to working with her again in the future

A friend of ours referred Cristina Valdés as they worked with her on multiple occasions. Cristina and her team, including Marianne, provided exemplary service at every level. Her knowledge of the market, experience, and patience during this process was gratifying. There were no questions to small or silly to ask, and she always called keeping us in the loop. Working with Cristina equaled the absolute best home buying experience in our lifetime. Our experience included every company she referred; which we not only followed up with but used during and after our purchased, including banking and general contractors. Cristina continues to follow up with us well after and we have no doubt the communication will carry on. We will absolutely use Cristina in the future as well as refer anyone in the Austin area to her. Fantastic.

Matthew Wilson

We can honestly say we have never worked with a real estate agent who is so dedicated to helping her clients. Cristina is thorough, caring, upbeat, and going the extra mile is routine for her. Since we were not available for the final walk through or closing (still resided in Iowa), she handled everything for us as well as representing us at the closing. She will handle any of our future needs, and I would strongly recommend her to any and all. I've never experienced such a devoted and caring realtor before Cristina.

I couldn't ask for a better Realtor. Cristina Valdés is excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable and is always available when needed. Cristina responded to my concerns in a timely manner. She helped me through the entire home buying process and had a positive attitude always which helped me a lot. I would recommend Cristina to anyone who's searching for a home and needs a great realtor. Cristina is the best. I give her all the stars!

Cristina is a top shelf Realtor! I’ve bought and sold properties with Cristina for over ten years now and will continue to work with her. She is super responsive, and that is so hard to come by in this day in age. I appreciate all the hard work that Cristina and her team do for her clients.

Cristina Valdés was the most awesome realtor! I was buying my first home, and she made the process very easy and comfortable.

Thank you very much, Cristina and Realty Austin.

Cristina has been a trusted friend and fantastic advisor throughout the past few years. We couldn't have been as successful or happy as we have been without her guidance. We will continue to usher our Austin friends in her direction. We had a fabulous experience working with Cristina and Realty Austin from the beginning to the end.

Cristina has been great to work with throughout the process. We have depended on her for her expertise and professionalism. Could not ask for a better agent here in Austin and look forward to continue working with her through the next phase of our home process. I have and will continue to recommend Cristina going forward to friends and acquaintances. I am sure they will have the same experience we have had.

Cristina was an excellent realtor. She helped us find a house in the exact neighborhood where we wanted to live.

Loren Cain

May 1 2017

The whole experience was incredible. Cristina is so professional but at the same time very personable. She kept me calm through out the entire process, the voice of reason I should say. I have never had a real estate experience like this ever. I will have to confess; Realtors don't always have a great image. Cristina was available to me at anytime I needed her, no matter how crazy my text was. If I had a question, she was on it. The schedules for buying and selling two houses got very confusing, and she was right there to redirect me when I had the wrong house. Cristina is a lovely person. She represents you very well, and I am sure that you know that. The loan, appraisal, and title teams Cristina is connected with were fabulous. I am still scratching my head over the fact that it went very smoothly and in a little over a month's time I am sitting in my new house writing this email. I will definitely recommend her to anyone, anywhere, anytime!

Cristina Valdes was above and beyond what we expected out of a realtor and was extremely helpful through our entire selling process. We had quite a few hiccups along the road and she was very helpful and knowledgeable with everything. We were very stressed trying to sell a home while living out of town, but she truly made the process so easy for us. I would recommend her to anyone!

I am a first time home buyer, and working with Cristina Valdes has been the smoothest, most pain-free experience I could have ever imagined for buying a home. Honestly, I enjoyed the process! Cristina answered all of my questions promptly and thoroughly, and her knowledge of the Austin market, expertise in real estate, and friendly demeanor were exactly the qualities I was seeking in a real estate agent. If I could give her ten stars I would. Thank you, Cristina!

Cristina Valdes is a knowledgeable, diligent, and thorough Realtor. She provides reliable guidance to find you the perfect home with patience and a positive attitude. She makes home buying simple, efficient, and fun. This is why this the second home she has helped me find and buy.

Susana Carbajal

Cristina Valdes and her staff are absolutely top notch. Cristina gladly took on the tough task of selling a house from a complex Estate. Every step of the process was clear and even as things changed in the listing she worked them out and kept everybody informed. We closed on the sale in a timely manner. I can say enough about Cristina and her staff!!!

Cristina Valdés was our real estate agent and assisted with selling our home in Austin. Cristina and her team went above and beyond our expectations and were very helpful every step of the way. They communicated with us very frequently and provided updates. Her team was also able to meet with various contractors/vendors on our behalf when we were out of town and were very receptive. We highly recommend working with Cristina Valdés.

Syra S., Yelp Review

Working with Realty Austin was a very gratifying experience for me. Of course financially, but even more so I was utterly impressed by Cristina's and Marianne's expertise and work ethics. If all of Realty Austin's colleagues are as responsible and effective your company must be pleased.

Ulrich Bach

January 1 2016

I selected Cristina because of her familiarity with the market in the neighborhood of the property we were selling. Her leadership in the neighborhood association and her reputation in the area were important factors in the choice as well. As an agent myself, I didn’t want to represent myself, but wanted only the best person working for me. I have known Cristina for several years, and my opinion of her has always been positive, but this experience not only reinforced that opinion but enhanced it. She was very professional and gracious in all our dealings. I could not be more pleased than I am with her work.


November 1 2015

As a first time seller, my experience was great, far better than I expected. Everything seemed to go very smoothly, and I was quite surprised to see how much work the whole team did behind the scenes to streamline the process and help me through the harder parts. When I needed to make a decision, I was clearly presented with the choices. Plus, the entire team was pleasant and professional. Cristina was my agent, and I was glad to have this help in a stressful time in my life.

September 1 2015

Cristina and her assistant, Marianne, from Realty Austin were instrumental to helping my elderly parents sell their house in Del Valle before moving out of state. Marianne speaks Spanish and was really helpful in keeping my mom up to speed with everything that was happening. Cristina and Marianne were thorough, easy to reach, and always helpful in answering our questions and explaining every step of the process. Cristina's strategy to get the house ready to put the house on the market and managing the multiple offers that came in was perfect. We got a spreadsheet outlining the details of each offer we received and Cristina was extremely patient answer our numerous questions. Cristina also attended the closing and arranged to make sure we had a Spanish-speaking closing agent so my mom would be more comfortable. In all, we couldn't have done it without Cristina and Marianne!

Cristina and her assistant were very helpful and answered all my questions. I appreciated the referrals for inspector and the foundation man. I also was able to use the tile cleaners she recommended. This was a time saver and really helped me get the house sold quickly. I was out of town part of the time during the sale process but was happy to easily get paperwork done over emails. Very efficient and painless. Cristina is great to work with and a lovely person. I look forward to working with her in the future!

Jennifer, Christina and her team were awesome. Our home was a lot more complex since we had created a condo and had to work along with an attorney and survey team. Christina was on top of every issue and was extremely knowledgeable right up to the closing. I will definitely recommend her and use her services again.

Carl & Marisa Flores

Working with my Realty Austin agent, Cristina Valdes, and her team was like cutting through soft butter-- smooth, seamless, and effortless. Her professionalism, as well as that of Marianne Rodriguez, her assistant, was reliable and topnotch. She was knowledgeable, self-confident and timely. I never had a moment of doubt about what was happening with the sale process, which took a chunk of anxiety out of the experience for me. I am pleased with the results, and how all of the aspects of the sale were handled before, during and afterward. The financial results of the sale were above my expectations, and I felt like Cristina had my best interest in mind when she negotiated my contract. Anyone who engages this agent and all of the Realty Austin support team will be in good hands.

Cristina is more like a business partner than anything else. Having worked with her in the past repeatedly over the years, I am always impressed at how she holds my best interest before her own. She offers ideas and recommendations that add value to my overall real estate goals. I refer her to my family and friends knowing she will take care of them in the same manner.

Cristina did a fantastic job and I would definitely recommend her to others. She was very patient during my six months of searching for a home and provided useful advice without seeming to steer me towards any particular house. Her assistant, Marianne, was also very helpful, and I was impressed with the whole Realty Austin team. Thanks!

Jennifer Ferri

December 1 2014

I closed with Cristina Valdes at Realty Austin last week and I could not be more happy with my experience with her. I was a little hesitant and cautious in my search because I was a single woman buying a house alone and I was particularly interested in finding a property on the east side in a neighborhood that I could feel comfortable living by myself. Cristina lives just east of downtown and was very familiar with that area. In fact, the house that I ultimately bought was one on the east side that Cristina had kept an eye on since construction had started--she took me to visit it before it was even listed on any listing sites and I was the first person to submit an offer. Cristina or her assistant, Marianne, were always accessible by whatever means I needed (via text, email, and phone just about any time of day) and they were always enthusiastic and willing to help me. Without hesitation, I recommend Cristina and her assistant Marianne to anyone looking for a home in Austin and particularly someone interested in exploring the east side.

Nicole O., Yelp Review

November 1 2014

Our experience with Cristina Valdes was fantastic. She has a thorough knowledge of the different neighborhoods around town, which came in handy when we shifted our focus to an area we were previously unfamiliar with. Cristina is very much in touch with the current trends in the market, particularly when it comes to setting realistic expectations about how much demand a property might draw. With her help, we were able to quickly find a house that is perfect for us! I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Cristina Valdes has for quite some time been a Godsend to our family. In times of desperate necessity she has saved the day on numerous occasions. I couldn't say enough things to honestly express how our family feels about her.

She's trustworthy, very professional and yet still has a very unique human touch that not only makes us feel that she's competent at what she does but also has our best interest at heart. She's always willing to go that extra mile without a single complaint. I only wish more people had her work ethic. For us there will only be one Realtor we'll ever recommend and use and that's Cristina Valdes. Thank you so very much.

Carlos Alba and Jose Deleon

Cristina Valdes not only helped us find a home we love, but she patiently educated us every step of the way on what to look for and what to be wary of. She never made us feel rushed and we always felt like she was really looking out for us.

We are so happy with our new place, and everything she did along the way made us feel confident in our decision. She's the best! Being a first time homebuyer is scary, but Cristina made it fun!

Cristina is a professional in all aspects of her job with assisting her clients and other agencies involved in the selling/buying a home.

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

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!

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.

Janet St. Paul

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.

Donna Carpenter, Facebook Review

I would highly recommend Cristina Valdes. She was exceptionally helpful and very accessible for us first time buyers!

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.

Raul Tapia

Cristina is wonderful and it was a pleasure to work with her. She is professional, personable, prompt, effective and organized, and manages to pull it all off with easy grace. I especially appreciated the time she spent educating us about every aspect of buying an investment property--from construction to the current  real estate market and our options--and the hand-holding she provided when things got a little more complicated than expected. This was a welcome change from our previous experience with a real estate agent, and we appreciate enormously Cristina's assistance, advice and calm and reassuring presence every step of the way.  We look forward to working with her again and will continue to recommend her to everyone we know.

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.
