"Christina was very patient for a process that was long and tough. We hit some bumps in the road, but she wouldn't let me give up, nor did she give up. She was great to work with and I am thankful for her patience!"

- Keith Haun, Client

"Christina showed me several different homes in Columbia, Pa. She didn't pressure me into more home than I could afford. Also she steered me away from homes that may have had issues down the road. She kept me informed throughout the whole process of buying my house as well as answered all of my questions. Christina was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the Lancaster area!"

- Alex Unkow, Client

"My husband and I felt Christina went above and beyond for us. She is very knowledgeable in her field. She was great with negotiations as well and we felt she definitely had our best interests at heart. We have used several realtors when buying and selling our investment properties over the years but since working with Christina, there is no other realtor we'd like to work with. I highly recommend contacting her if you're looking to buy or sell a home."

- BS Hogan, Client

*This is an estimate only and is not an appraisal. The CB Estimate®. provides an estimated market value of your home generated by a proprietary algorithm using aggregated data collected from third parties and public records and is intended to provide you with a general value of the property.

Nobody wants another generation of young women to find themselves in their 30s, suddenly realizing they need to dig themselves out of the mistakes they began making when they were too young to know better.

NOW is the time for young people to learn these important lessons and implement them so they will find themselves in a prosperous position 20 years from now.

For many years, I kept my successes to myself for fear of making people uncomfortable, but when I started to talk with others about my financial education, I quickly realized that had I been more open with people, I might have been able to help them avoid financial hardship. I found myself thinking, “someone needs to write a book about this,” and then it clicked… Why not me?


Whatever your real estate needs, I can help you reach your goals with confidence. My website gives you access to the most current real estate listings and data for Central Pennsylvania all in one place.
