Cristina is a superb realtor - extremely hard-working, attentive, honest, pleasant, even-tempered, detail-oriented, and knowledgeable. Having owned a number of properties (in the US, Ontario, Vancouver, and the Gulf Islands), we found Cristina certainly to be the best realtor we have engaged to-date and would recommend her without hesitation as an agent, for either buying or selling property. Cristina even helped us with very good advice and assistance in the private sale of our last property, and we were grateful for her willingness and responsiveness in this transaction, too, which was well beyond the scope of her role in the purchase of our latest house.

Cristina was a pleasure to work with in both selling our previous residence, and in purchasing our newly built house. Her experience in new build is a valuable asset in knowing the ins and outs of the industry.
Her ever ready smile, pleasant demeanour and positive attitude was un-waivering throughout our dealings, but don’t think for an instant that she is not capable of fighting for you to get you the best possible outcome.
I would not hesitate to do business with Cristina again, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who will work hard to get you what you want.

In february of 2015 we decided to relocate to Sooke BC from Manitoba. On oct. 9 we moved into our new home in Lannon Creek Park. The main reason we managed to purchase this beautiful home was the dedicated & professional involvement you provided to us as your clients. We have worked with many realtors in the past but never felt as comfortable when working with you. Thank you so much & we would not hesitate to refer you to anyone looking for a home in the Sooke area.

We have had the pleasure of working with Cristina Staicu on a property deal where she was representing the owners of a new development. We found her to be courteous, extremely pleasant to deal with, and she always responded in a timely manner to our inquiries and requests. She has sought solutions for us as the buyers, despite representing the seller and has walked that fine line very well. Cristina has gone above and beyond on numerous occasions to assist us with issues as they have cropped up. Even after closing the sale she has provided local trade references and recommendation to us as we develop our site.
I would not hesitate to recommend her as she is an outstanding agent and would endorse her as one of the top realtors I have ever dealt with.

House-hunting can be an endless and unforgiving task. For many buyers, it appears to go on forever, making them feel like puppets controlled by their realtor’s desire for a quick deal and commission. Cristina, however, is very different. Able to make her hectic and demanding career look effortless while ensuring her clients feel welcomed and prioritized, she easily smooths the bumps and cracks in the road to home ownership. With a bright and charming personality and unstoppable work ethic, Cristina always goes the extra mile for her clients’ needs, developing a special relationship with those she works with. If in need of a realtor to aid you on your path to settling down in Sooke or surrounding areas, we whole-heartedly recommend Ms. Cristina Staicu. After you have completed your journey, you will not see her as a realtor, but as a friend.

My husband and I had the opportunity to work with Cristina a few months ago. We had sold our house and were moving to Sooke. We had no realtor but were directed to Cristina by a developer who was we were interested buying from. Of course our first question was "Who does Cristina really represent... the builder, who she knows, or the new buyers?" Cristina answered that question in a very short period of time by her actions.
Cristina was there for us every step of the way and went to bat for us more than once. She was present at all of the meetings that we had with the developer (because she sincerely wanted to be there) and stayed with us to the very end of the process. This was not our first home purchase. Between my husband and me it was probably our 15th purchase. We've had good realtors and bad ones. Cristina was EXCEPTIONAL!! Her attention to detail was fantastic but I think what impressed us both the most was her availability. When we called her she responded within minutes. There was one instance where she even answered a text from us while she was in the dentist chair!!! Does it get any better than that!?!? We both really appreciated that when Cristina didn't have the answer to something,she went out and found the answer and got back to us right away. She didn't waste our time with "pretending to know the answer."
The art of communication has changed in the last few years. Cristina has not lost that art. We really appreciated everything that she did for us and would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend or family member. We know for sure that she'll be our first choice of Realtor when/if we ever sell this home.

My husband and I met Cristina Staicu when we requested to view a home listed by her company.
She showed us several homes to meet our needs and in our price range; Cristina is always on time and communicated well with both of us.
When we decided to put in an offer she presented our offer and provided us will frequent follow up on the status of the offer; she was an advocate for us and we trusted her
Cristina is passionate about what she does and was determined to get us the best price for the home
It was and still is a pleasure to connect with Cristina and will recommend her to family, friends and business partners.
