I am a daughter of an Immigrant and was born and raised in Georgia. I have strong ties to my Peruvian heritage and Southern roots, but I call Tacoma home! I studied Business and Sociology at Georgia Southern University, I decided to start my career in Real Estate when my family moved to Tacoma. However, the first idea of being a Realtor came when Barbie released her Dream House in 1992, and I spent more time critiquing the layout and colors than playing with it. That combination has led me to understand the importance of housing and home ownership, the security of this significant investment for everyone, and my role in loving the structure of a well-built home - even a complete pink Barbie Dream Home. As you come to know me as your agent, you will receive a more profound invitation to the community I call home paired with my extensive knowledge of the home buying and selling process. I am a recipient of the South Sound Business 40 under 40, and a licensed interior designer with accreditations in feng shui, my husband and I chaired the St. Patrick's 2021 annual fund, I am on the St. Patrick's Reach Auction Board, a fierce trivial pursuit competitor, and a self-proclaimed dachshund collector. On most weekends, if I am not showing homes, you will find me rooting for my daughter as she plays on a Nortac Sparta team or redecorating a different room in my house while planning our next trip to Peru.

“In December, our landlords decided to terminate our lease 10 months early to move back into our rental. Out of nowhere, we had to find new housing, while planning our elopement, under a time-crunch, completely unprepared--all in the middle of a pandemic.

Cristina was our first call. I had worked with her previously when selling my house after a messy divorce, and her compassion and resourcefulness made that difficult experience as smooth and painless as it could have possibly been. I walked away from that house with a good chunk of change and a new friendship. It was a no-brainer to reach out to her for help again.

From the get-go, Cristina was honest with us about the challenges we were going to face buying a home in this competitive of a market. But she also reassured us that while our hunt would have a lot of ups and downs, we would find the perfect home, not just a ‘good enough’ house.

She was never more than a text away, and she was always quick to get us scheduled for showings--sometimes literally an hour after a house had hit the market. She kindly endured our many panicked texts as we waited for news on offers, and helped us bounce back after the rejections.

When we found our forever home, Cristina crafted a successful offer that didn’t require us to waive an inspection-- or over extend ourselves financially. We’re so grateful to have had her help in such a difficult situation. There is no one else we could imagine having worked with in this process, and we cannot recommend her enough. ”
