“Cristi is a complete pro. She surpassed my expectations every step of the way and walked us through all aspects of the transaction. She gave me great advice, was personally engaged, and completed the sale in an extremely efficient and hassle-free manner. Her dedication, high ethical standards, and determination were absolutely best-in-class. She then helped me purchase my next waterfront property in the Harbour and again the entire process was delightful. I will certainly use Cristi Ulrich again in the future and give her my highest recommendation.”
