Sometimes, when people first meet Cristine in person (after only having spoken by phone), their first reaction is, “Huh? I thought you’d be bigger.” Truth be told, Cristine seems big, packing a ton of energy, heart, and grit into a 60” package — traits that have served her well in the competitive sport of real estate. Cristine has had two enduring fascinations since childhood: real estate and storytelling. At age 7, she directed the local kids to “improve” her rented Bronx home by drawing giant murals on an exterior wall. In adulthood, she found a more practical outlet for her interests and became a real estate agent and producer/director. In between helping people find homes they love, Cristine has created videos and commercials for more than two dozen high-profile clients. On the side, Cristine is a dedicated ballet dancer, adventurous cook and endeavoring linguist. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Joe, and tempts their three grown kids back to the nest with meatballs whenever possible.
