Cristina is truly a full service broker. She always exceeded my expectations for communicating. Her contacts for service providers were fantastic. She was great to work with. Our home had "challenges" but she got the job done. She was ever positive and truly made a difficult sale for me as a divorcee much better than I expected.
Cristina also helped me buy a condo. She negotiated a concurrent settlement for me so I was able to use the proceeds from the sale of my property to buy the condo. She also negotiated a pre-settlement for me so I was able to move in a couple days before the settlement date. I know that Cristina went the "extra-mile" for me. She remained encouraging and positive throughout the entire process!
I would be willing to speak with prospective sellers. I have used three other brokerages and agents over the years. Cristina was the best and that says a lot, because I was pleased with the others. She is awesome! Carol Lavery, Herndon
Cristina is absolutely amazing! She was very informative and helpful throughout the whole process. The hard work of herself and her team led to a super smooth closing with no hiccups. I am very happy with my new home!
I've dealt with a lot of realtors, Cristina is bar none the best realtor I've ever worked with/met. She's extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of buying and selling a home (she did both for us). She's also very honest and her attention to detail is just remarkable. I've never seen anyone more committed to customer service and if I ever buy another home I will use Cristina without a doubt. I would recommend her to anyone, whether youre buying or selling your home. Her experience in the area is invaluable and her advice is spot on 100% of the time...she's just that good!!!

Cristina was recommended to us by friends, and we are so happy after working with her! She really knows the market, advertised well, helped us prepare, and made the whole process seamless. We got above asking price and the buyer waived the home inspection, with multiple offers. She's the best! Would recommend her 10 times out of 10.
Hands down, Cristina was the best Realtor we have dealt with ever to sell a home. That’s major. We both, separately and together, have bought and sold many homes. Cristina helped us contact contractors to improve our home to sell at the highest price. It worked.
Cristina Dougherty is a wonderful person and a wonderful person to work with. Cristina was just awesome throughout the whole process of buying my home. Cristina is knowledgeable and always available. It was her networking that enabled me to purchase my new home. I simply could not have done this without her!
We were moving from across the country to VA and reached out to several VA realtors that we found though online searches. It was immediately clear from the many responses we received that Cristina stood out from all the others given the level of detail in her responses and her expert knowledge of the Northern VA market. After several email exchanges, we spoke with Cristina on the phone and realized very quickly that we had hit the jackpot and found a truly awesome realtor! Cristina is extremely personable, responsive, easy to work with and fun (not a word you typically associate with the daunting process of buying a house)!
Cristina really took the time to understand our needs and she created custom alerts for us on her website so we began receiving automated alerts as soon as suitable properties hit the market. From the listings that Cristina began sending to us, there was no doubt that Cristina had an absolutely spot-on understanding of what we were looking for. In addition to the alerts we were receiving on new properties as they hit the market, Cristina also kept in regular contact with us whenever she heard that a suitable property might be coming on the market soon. Given how 'hot' the Northern VA market was at the time Cristina's proactive approach in keeping in touch with her extensive network proved invaluable in her finding the absolutely perfect house at the perfect price for us - even before it officially hit the market.
Having been through many real estate transactions over the years we can truly say that working with Cristina was a breath of fresh air. She genuinely cares about her clients and she goes to great lengths to minimize stress along the way. There were some houses that we saw online which we thought would be perfect for us, but after Cristina viewed them for us, she gave us really honest feedback saying that she didn't feel it was the right house for us because of certain reasons, e.g. the traffic on that road was not ideal for a family with young kids, or the floorplan wasn't ideal, or the house was on a road that became very clogged with traffic in the morning, etc.
Cristina also has excellent contacts that can help with other areas of the home buying or selling process. For example, she referred us to a mortgage professional who ended fincancing our mortgage and his rates and terms were far better than the others we had found through our own extensive research.
We feel extremely fortunate to have found Cristina and will certainly be using her again whenever we need realtor services in the future. Thank you Cristina!
It was necessary for me to make a purchase when I could not come to Virginia to look for a home. Cristina was able to assist me in finding just what I wanted. She was so helpful with every step of the way so that I was very informed and made the purchase a easy as possible.
Christina could not have been more knowledgeable or responsive. I give her my highest recommendation. You can trust her. I would use her again in a heartbeat. She is a consummate professional.
