Cristina was referred to me by a friend. I had a horrible previous experience with the realtor who helped us purchase the house Cristina helped us sell. I did not hold back on any questions I had. I wanted explanations for specific parts of the process that Cristina took all the time I needed to answer every question fully and to my satisfaction. She did not sit around and let things happen. She took charge to sell my house like I was a family member. She put my house up and did back to back weekend open houses which resulted in an offer after only 10 days on the market. She held our hands and got us through the stressful home inspection. She had all the contacts to make the necessary repairs very quickly. I could not have had a better experience! I have referred her to three friends already and I will continue to recommend her to anyone I know who is selling their house. Cristina is a true professional who knows her business inside and out. Her communication style is awesome. She talks with you as an agent of you not as someone who is just trying to make a sale. I truly appreciate EVERYTHING she did to sell my house. Top notch person!!!!
My wife and I were referred to Cristina by our daughter, who bought a house with Cristina as her agent. We met with Cristina and let her know what our “must haves” and “nice-to-have” features. We were looking for property (at least ¼ acre, as my wife loves to garden), “move-in ready” with hiking trials nearby for our dog. Cristina compiled a list of houses and began showing houses several days each week, morning, daytime, and evenings. Christina was always available by text and email. We made offers on several houses (given the competitiveness of the market these days), so Cristina went through the entire negotiation process several times until, finally, we found the perfect house that met all our needs, even with hiking trails just past our backyard. Cristina worked incredible hard, was always available, and found exact what we wanted in our “forever home.”
Cristina came highly recommended to us and we now know why. She is extremely attentive and personable as well as knowledgeable about the northern Virginia real estate market. She literally dropped everything she was doing in order to meet us for a spontaneous showing. Cristina also kept in constant contact with us during our new home construction process, ensuring that the builder was adhering to all contractual promises. Cristina truly cares for her clients and we can now call her our friend as well as our realtor for life!
Cristina Dougherty found our dream home! I can’t recommend her highly enough! Cristina provided us with helpful knowledge through the entire process, even though we bought a house during COVID she made the process very smooth. She is friendly, professional, and helpful!

Cristina set high expectations and met them when she sold our home quickly. Working with her was a pleasure- she instilled confidence with her professionalism and her experience of achievement. Her entire team was available for support, and Cristina was always the first point of contact. I highly recommend Cristina for your home sale experience.

OUR HOME SOLD IN TWO WEEKS!
We interviewed 6 highly regarded realtors in the Oakton VA area to sell our home. It was a difficult decision but in the end we were thrilled with our choice of Cristina Dougherty. From the beginning process to the final closing, Cristina handled all of the home sale elements with true professionalism. She showcased our home with professional photographs and a 3D Virtual Tour that allowed prospective buyers to literally feel they were walking through our home. When buyers visited our home, she followed up with each realtor getting valuable feedback. She repeatedly checked back with realtors after we received several verbal offers. And when our first official buyer backed out (we learned he had backed out on 3 previous homes), she contacted previous buyers that had been interested and we had our 2nd offer within 4 days.
When looking for our new home, Cristina helped us find the perfect place to rent and was very adept at making sure the other realtors got the contract done and done right.
Cristina is great in responding quickly to you whenever you have a concern or question, even if she is on vacation. We felt that was critical when dealing with such a large transaction. Three months after our house sale, we had trouble getting reimbursed by the movers for damages incurred by them. Cristina immediately stepped in, demanding the movers be accountable. You will not find a better advocate. We recommend Cristina without reservation. She is not just our realtor, she has become our friend!

Cristina is a great real estate agent! She listened to our needs and helped us to find a great home. She also has an extensive network of contacts that have been hugely helpful in purchasing our home. We highly recommend her!

My wife and I can wholeheartedly recommend Cristina Dougherty and her staff to anyone buying and/or selling a home in Northern Virginia. Without Cristina's expert advice on staging and prepping our home for a quick sale and optimum sale price, we probably would never have achieved both of those things the way we did, in May of this year (2018), just prior to our fast-moving relocation across the country. With Cristina's support and assistance every step of the way, we were able to (1) find a buyer (actually multiple offers) within days of listing our home and then (2) negotiate very fortuitous terms and a timing of the sale that helped us pivot nicely to finding a new home, coordinating the two sales, and making our big move (with the least amount of angst we could have expected) shortly thereafter.
Cristina is both highly knowledgeable about the local VA market and what works best to obtain a desirable offer (as a seller) as well as solicitous of (and accommodating to) a seller's particular life situation. This is an awesome combination for a real estate professional. Additionally, we originally learned of Cristina because she was recommended by our realtor in Colorado, who herself is highly successful and respected in that state. -- Steve Lemanski, former homeowner in Chantilly, VA
This is our second time asking Cristina to act as our agent. In short she is the best and we would not consider anyone else to represent us. Her expansive knowledge of the local market, ability to set the conditions for success, and most of all her personal devotion to perfection is beyond reproach. Moreover she does the necessary "homework" and is a true problem solver. During our previous purchase and our recent sale Cristina was seemingly available 24/7 to provide detailed updates and responses to our questions. The latest result was our home sold within 5 days on the market at above our asking price. We believe Cristina is directly responsible for this success. If you are looking for the best look no further than Cristina Dougherty.
