Since 2001, Cristina Valdés has focused on assisting clients buy, sell and invest in real estate. Cristina develops long-term relationships with her clients and directs her time and resources towards meeting and exceeding their expectations before, during and after each transaction. This approach has enabled her to work by referral for the last six years because her clients continue to trust and value her services and refer their friends and family to Cristina for the same quality service.
Cristina’s systematic processes take buyers and sellers through each real estate transaction as smoothly as possible. She educates her clients along the way and truly makes them better buyers, sellers and investors. Cristina’s personal experience in education, remodeling and investing in real estate helps her to articulate information that adds value to each transaction and saves her clients’ money.
Living in Austin, Texas for the past thirteen years has been a gift for Cristina and she has worked hard in the community to show her gratitude. She is active in her East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood Planning Team, volunteers through Austin Junior Forum at non-profit organizations who help women, children and the elderly and is a member of FuturoFund and Austin Involved.
Cristina currently lives in Central East Austin with her husband John. They enjoy the close proximity to downtown and Lady Bird Lake and are extremely grateful for all that life in Austin has afforded them.
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 Valdes and Realty Austin are absolutely the best! We have both bought and sold with Cristina, and both times were very efficient and professional! When it is time to purchase again, we will definitely be contacting Cristina!!!
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!
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.
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.
I have known Cristina for many years and she is "flat out awesome." I will always recommend her and Realty Austin.
All I can say is thank you Christina for helping us find our dream home. As my children tell me, "Mom, you are the best." My husband and I tell her, "Christina, you are the best." It has been our pleasure to work with a great person interested in helping her clients find the best home for a new beginning in their lives.

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!
Anah and Dan
Cristina is a professional in all aspects of her job with assisting her clients and other agencies involved in the selling/buying a home. Christina has been very involved in assuring us that everything is going to be okay and it is exciting for us to sell our house and now look for a new home for our family. She is a compassionate human being and it is a pleasure working with her.
David and Gloria
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've worked with Cristina Valdes many years and have found her to be excellent in her pursuit of Real Estate professionalism! I highly recommend her as a Realtor but more importantly as a trusted friend.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Cristina Valdes is great. She's the best real restate agent ever, by far. Realty Austin is lucky to have her!
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!
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.
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.
Cristina was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable, accessible and highly organized. Buying a house was a lot easier than I thought it would be!
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.
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.
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.
Cristina is amazing! She is thorough, detailed, and goes the extra mile. Loved working with her!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
