Christa Rivers did an outstanding job assisting us with the purchase of our home, new construction with DeGraff Bloom Builders. She helped us every step of the way: from the big decision to sign the contract and start the new construction process, explaining each step, helping us understand the process of building a house, keeping us up to date and helping us through some questions to ensure we were ready to close as soon as possible, and making this purchase of our forever home a low stress and enjoyable experience. She is a professional with a personal touch.

Very diligent and transparent. We could not get our dream home without her knowledge and dedication
– JD Boyle

I believe I would have had a totally different experience if not for Christa. If I ever we became overwhelmed she was there to help. She explained this complex, sometimes technical, process to us point by point so we knew what to expect and what step was next. She offered great advice and actually helped us save money. Even when her part of the process had ended, she was there to answer all our questions, no matter how insignificant and she worked so hard with us and for us! She’s a genuine, extremely knowledgeable person and great at her job. She impressed us so much, we hired her to sell our home and have already recommended her to friends.

We would like to thank Christa for all she did for us while we were looking for our new home. Christa is clearly a lady who enjoys her work and worked hard on our behalves. Christa always steered us in the right direction, gave honest opinion on things and went out of her way to help us find the perfect house. Dawn and I are in a good place in our life cause of her hard work and representing our interests. Thank you so much.
– Lou and Dawn Smith

We had the pleasure of selling our home with Christa in the Spring of 2018 and were thrilled with the outcome! We had interviewed two other Realtors and they didn’t come close to Christa’s level of professionalism or authenticity. She immediately gained our trust and confidence and we were very impressed with her attentiveness to detail, clarity on the entire process, and constant communication throughout. If we needed to sell another home she would be my first call and I can’t recommend her highly enough!
– Ian and Kim

As a single person looking for a home, I am so happy I found Sterling Homes Real Estate. Christa was the perfect person to go house hunting with – from the beginning, it was clear she would go above and beyond to help me find a home I loved. She took time to get to know me and she thoughtfully chose the houses she felt would be a good match for me.
From house hunting to bidding to closing, Christa was there every step of the way to make my purchase of a home seamless. It is clear she loves what she does and each client is more than a bottom line. I feel like I not only gained a home I love, but also a friend!

Christa Rivers is such a pleasure to work with. Throughout planning discussions on how to market our home all the way through closing, Christa went above and beyond as an agent. She was both professional and friendly as she managed the sale of our home. Christa has extensive real estate knowledge that was shared as she worked closely with us throughout the selling experience. She is highly recommended!
– Erica & Jeff T.

Christa has been a pleasure to work with! She spent countless days, nights, weekends as well as time on a holiday away from her family to make sure we had the best experience buying a home! Her dedication to her clients and career is exceptional and helped us feel comfortable and confident throughout the process. Christa was in contact on a daily basis, was on top of everything that needed to be done, and was always ahead of the game in helping us prepare for the next steps. She looked out for our best interest, helped us meet our goals and was by our side even after our closing day! A last minute problem the day of walk through she handled professionally, quickly, and sat through our closing by our side to be sure there were no further issues!We met Christa by chance, and now have a forever Real Estate Agent, expert advice giver and friend for years to come!
– Kim L.

Christa helped sell our house in less than a week in the beginning of this crazy pandemic. She was always available and very helpful with all of the questions we had as first time sellers. She continues to work with us as we buy our next house that we are building. She is always friendly and gives quick responses. I would highly recommend Christa to anyone looking for a house or selling their house. She goes above and beyond to aid you through every step of the way.
– JJ and Patty L.

“If you want a realtor who knows her stuff and will stick with you throughout the entire process, then look no further and immediately sign with Christa. She sold our home in Clifton Park in 3 days and made a highly complicated process seem easy. Christa was a true professional walking us through step by step without missing any details. She always followed through and was literally available anytime of day for our questions. Most importantly, the moral support she provided to us when a difficult, red tape situation arose, was above and beyond. She never gave up and kept us calm even after we moved 800 miles away. I don’t think our experience could’ve been any better. I’d give Christa 10 stars if I could.” – Tricia D.

“Christa was great to work with. She was very patient and helped us throughout the process in getting our home finalized. We had built a completely customized house and she patiently explained to us all the details and helped us design a house that we liked. It was a long process for us because of the customization and Christa, with her expertise, knowledge and experience, navigated and guided us through this entire process patiently. Christa was helpful during our closing process as well as she helped us put pressure on the bank’s and seller’s attorneys to get the closing done quickly. She walked us through to be prepared for some of the upcoming activities to help us move through this process quickly. I would definitely recommend her to anybody who has plans to buy or sell homes in the near future. Thank you Christa for all your help and guidance. As a first time home buyer, we definitely leveraged and benefited from your experience and expertise. Thank you and appreciate it.” 

“Christa was amazing to work with! She went above and beyond to keep us informed during the entire process of building our new home. She always answered all our questions, making our experience a lot less stressful and more enjoyable. She clearly knows her business and loves what she does! We highly recommend Christa if your buying or selling a home. She works hard for her clients and you won’t be disappointed!”
