"Cristi sold my home in 7 days for full price, which represented the highest record price ever in the neighborhood! After my partners and I first listed with another agent for over 360 days, this was completely amazing. I knew Cristi was an excellent agent because as a long-time friend, I have watched her set many price records including the sale of my parents’ home which entered escrow in less than a week with 16 offers, closing well over list price.
Before our home officially reached the market, Cristi and her team hit the ground running with marketing, photography, a film shoot, pre-listing promotion on social media and a print ad campaign. Cristi held a successful broker preview, her only open house, and personally showed the house to all prospective buyers.
While in escrow, she even went above and beyond to follow up and see us through a hold up with the buyer’s lender. Her personal efforts and presence made the difference in a successful sale versus a prolonged stay on the market without results. Cristi also assisted us in relocating to our new home.
We are so pleased with her professionalism and commitment. She’s brilliant, takes pride in her work, and truly cares for her clients. If you want to get your house sold in the least amount of time for the most money, and want to successfully locate and move to your next home, I highly recommend Cristi Ulrich to all buyers and sellers!"
