We have bought and sold many properties and when we decided to buy property in Florida we researched areas and contacted Christina. She was immediately responsive to our needs and was prepared with several properties when we arrived in Florida. All of the listings fit within our criteria and we purchased one of those homes at that time. The discussions went flawlessly and the closing went without a hitch. Since then Christina has followed up quickly and efficiently and continued to answer questions and provide information as we needed it. We continue to utilize Christina as our eyes and ears on our house when we are not in Florida. If you want someone who is responsive, knowledgeable and attentive to needs, Christina is it. Well, it is 2018 we just sold this house and used Christina as our broker and the process went well. Christina was always available, responsive to our questions and concerns and always gave us feedback after showing our house. It took less than two months to sell, and in spite of agent difficulties on the buyers side, Christina handled everything with professionalism and patience. She is a fountain of knowledge and great to work with. When we buy and sell again we will contact Christina.

We have sold 7 houses over the years and Christina was by far the most professional, accessible, and detail-oriented agent we have ever worked with. From listing to photoshoot, to showings, to inspections – she personally handled every aspect of the process leaving nothing unattended. We engaged her because of her reputation as the best agent for waterfront in our area and she did not disappoint. Thanks, Christina!

As a business owner, I make my living spotting talent and working with motivated people who care about what they do. After having worked with Christina on the buy and sell side, I can tell you that she is amazing at what she does and personally recommend her based upon that experience.
As a buyer, this was a step up in terms of square feet and features of the home. This made for a lot of things that we needed to learn quickly in order to make a good decision. Christina was available for questions day or night, always just a text away. Her depth of knowledge of the area, the builders, and the landscape made it so that in the rare occasion that she didn’t know an answer she had the phone number handy of someone who did. She had a chimney guy, two dock guys, an A.C. guy, and the most thorough title agent I’ve ever met.
As a seller, the most important thing is finding a reliable buyer. While this surely doesn’t happen for everyone, Christina had under contract with a buyer she brought 3 days after we signed our listing agreement and before it even hit the MLS. Beyond the buyer, she was really patient while we dealt with the emotional side of letting go of our home. She was appropriately blunt the couple of times we needed to have reason talked into us and did a really good job of making us feel like we were represented well the entire time.
Christina is great. She works hard for you, isn’t afraid to tell you the truth, and will go to bat when you need her to. She’s the perfect Realtor on the buy or sell side and I’m glad to have worked with her.

As part of the agent selection process I interviewed 5 different agents/agencies. After a joint interview with my wife, myself and Christina Zecca, we made the decision to go with her and Waterfront Properties. The decision was predicated on Christina’s knowledge and energy level, and a very comprehensive preparatory presentation. As we progressed, Christina provided numerous recommendations that were “right on” (which we listened to and acted upon). Christina was routinely involved to assure superior performance to achieve commitments that she and Waterfront Properties made. In our case, the pricing established was realistic, addressed our timeline goals, predicated on market analysis and general waterfront availability at the time. We are very pleased with the result having very nearly secured our asking price. Waterfront Properties operates on a unique business model that I believe for higher-end properties will produce superior results. We found both Christina and the Waterfront Properties organization to be competent, well-equipped and very professional. I would highly recommend both Christina and Waterfront Properties.

Katrina and I just wanted to let you know what an excellent job you did for us in helping us find and purchase our new home. You were very diligent in helping us look at properties, even those that weren’t even on the market yet. Your persistence and market insight really helped us get to the point of purchase with what we now consider our dream home. We were both extremely happy with your professionalism – in particular, you always got back to us with quick answers to our questions. In addition, you always were thinking a few steps ahead, which we really value. With us being new to the area, your referrals for the inspector, the real estate attorney and the interior designer were all first rate. You really made this process an enjoyable one (and as stress-free as can be possible when buying a home). We look forward to working with you again as we contemplate investment properties down the road. Thank you again!

Ann Marie and I would like to thank you very much for all of your help with the purchase and renting of our new home in Jupiter. You were very patient with us throughout the past year. The fact that we had met you the year before and you showed us properties even though we were very much undecided as to what we really wanted.
The listings you sent us, all of the questions that you answered helped us to narrow down our search. This year you showed us all of the properties that we had interest in. You went over and above to make our deal take place in the short time we had in Florida. We know our deal was complicated because not only was it a purchase, but we wanted to lease the property out as well. You said “no problem” and sure enough, you found a tenant for us before we closed on the house. Thank you again for your hard work, expertise and patience. We would recommend you to anyone we know as the best Realtor we have ever dealt with.

We feel very lucky that we found you to help us in our search for a new home in Florida. We had recently moved down from MA and were not familiar with the different areas, and felt lost trying to figure out where to look. Within a few weeks you helped us find our perfect home with a dock and pool on a canal leading to the Intracoastal in Jupiter. The process was made easier for us because you were always positive and very detail-oriented.
When it came time to negotiate the price, you helped us get a better price than I had hoped we could achieve. I am used to negotiating prices with our factories for our business and on previous homes, but you knew just what to say to the other Realtor to make the deal work for us.
You never tried to tell us that we could not purchase what we wanted at our price point, as we experienced with other Realtors before we met you. Thanks for helping make the process enjoyable and becoming our friend in the process.

I just want to thank you for the great professionalism and tenacity that you displayed during the whole process through which we acquired our house in Palm Beach Gardens. As you know, I am a freak of water front properties and after experiencing having you as a Realtor, when I think of a waterfront property in the Palm Beaches, I cannot think of anybody else to handle my transaction but you.
You are not only superiorly knowledgeable of the waterfront properties market in the area, but as you showed us you are always willing to go the extra mile to close a deal and that makes a great difference.
Again, thank you very much for your guidance and professional help to make it possible that I could buy my wife her dream water front house in the Palm Beaches!

In November, we purchased a home in Tequesta with the assistance of Christina Zecca. We would like to convey to you our sincere appreciation for Christina’s outstanding efforts in the entire process from viewing properties to finalizing the sale.
As transplants from New Jersey, we were not familiar with this area. Christina’s knowledge and experience with respect to local real estate as well as all aspects of the community were a tremendous help to us in determining the right home for our family. It was our desire to purchase a home on the water, and we were very happy to have Christina’s expertise in this area.
Purchasing a home is stressful and Christina’s customer focus and dedication certainly provided us peace of mind during the process. She provided valuable information on the market and top notch referrals to assist in our negotiations. We encountered some challenges along the way, from difficult sellers to a delayed mortgage, and we feel fortunate to have had Christina who stayed on top of all parties to ensure a smooth closing.
Post sale, Christina has continued to be of invaluable assistance providing us with further referrals as needed. We would certainly recommend Christina and your firm to prospective buyers in the area.

I was researching online from Long Island, New York looking at properties for my husband and I as a get-a-way and future retirement in early November and must have shown interest in some of the waterfront properties listed by your office.
Christina Zecca responded by email and phone within a day, but by then we were under a Hurricane Warning, she was amazingly concerned as she was about other clients in New York. The day after the hurricane, I had no power or outward phone service. The first incoming call was from Christina asking how we were, I was really so happy to talk to someone and asked what she could see on the news since we could not.
I then was able to get a flight out after 7 days without electricity, heat, very little phone, no internet to conduct our business, a gas shortage and a winter Nor-Easter on the way. Christina happened to call again asking how we were and if there was anything she could do for us. I told her I had just booked a flight for my husband, my little dog, and myself and had no way to reserve a hotel. Christina said she would call me right back, and in less than a few minutes she did. She gave me the phone number to Peter the sales manager at Jupiter Bay Resort and we booked a pet-friendly condo for a week with a view of the ocean, backing up to Carlin Park in the exact area we wanted to move back to.
My husband and I are a professional couple running a successful home-grown business, passionate, and very rarely do we encounter someone we consider like-minded in their work ethic.
Christina was so sincere and concerned I had to ask her if she was the owner/broker of Waterfront Properties. When she said she was a sales associate, I was truly humbled.
A true sales person never has to sell. She is a natural networker, relationship-builder and always a resource. Anyone she encounters, she will get to know by asking the right questions, attracting like-minded people to her. It’s her character and that foundation cannot be taught, it has to be recruited by a sharp eye and ear.
You sir or madam, whether by intention or by chance has found a very rare asset to your business and because of her, we are your customer.

You are so awesome! We need to thank you for making our experience selling and moving absolutely flawless. We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you did helping us to list our property at the right price. The recommendations you made before the showings presented the property perfectly to prospective buyers. It’s hard to believe that it was sold above asking price in one day! And then multiple offers in the next two days! A job well done! You closed the whole deal thirty days ahead of our entire schedule. Wow! It gets no better than that.
But your achievements did not stop there. The rental you found for us, we absolutely love. It is perfect. We can’t believe through the whole process of selling our home and finding our new place, you made it fun and stress-free.
We look forward to working with you in the future and will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for an outstanding Realtor.

Christina, it has been a bit hectic moving and all, so I have not had time to express my sincere appreciation for all of your efforts in the sale of my home. I cannot believe you were able to sell it in only two and a half weeks since we placed it on the market. It is remarkable, especially considering the cost.
It has been a real pleasure working with you, and I hope to work with you again in the future. Once again, thank you for everything.

Just wanted to drop a note for all of your help with the Don & Jane Paulus purchase. Heard through a conversation how much they liked dealing with you. Just goes to show if you know your business, and you’re professional, nice things will come back to you. So here it is… in letter form. Look forward to working with you many times over.

Jane and I would like to thank you for your support and for your efforts on our behalf during our search for a home in Florida. From the very beginning, you devoted yourself to determining our wants, desires, and goals, then using your internet skills, Realtor training and knowledge, and your familiarity with the local area, you were able to select homes that matched our interest. You exhibited a willingness to expend the time required to ensure that we were able to view each of the selected homes and to discuss the merits of each. Your knowledge of PGA National, Ibis, nearby communities, as well as the Palm Beach culture was most helpful. Following our decision to purchase a home in PGA National, your continued to support our dealings with the selling agent, and you participated in reviewing all of the documents required to complete the purchase. Furthermore, we appreciated receiving names of potential mortgage finance companies, one of which we selected. Your constant attention to details enhanced the warmth with which we anticipated our new lifestyle.
Following our arrival in Florida, you once again went above and beyond the call, and personally introduced us to various interior decorator talents. You accompanied us on our initial visit to Carl’s Furniture showroom, and you established our initial furniture consultant, who by the way, continues as our personal consultant to this day. Our efforts to complete our lanai reached the contract stage today, again using the personable and professional contractors whose names you supplied.
Our experience in Florida has been everything we hoped it would be. We feel you contributed greatly to a most pleasurable transition from Maryland and wish to thank you very sincerely for your efforts, and for the warm personality that accompanies your every endeavor.

Thank you for accepting the listing of our waterfront home in Tequesta. At the current rate of frequent showings, we are confident that Waterfront Properties will bring a qualified buyer to the table in a matter of weeks. I felt compelled to write you a letter and expound the virtues of the agent you assigned our listing, Christina Zecca.
Real estate agents in this small town come and go, some promise the moon… until they get the listing, then wither on the vine. Still others change from agency to agency like you and I change underwear. Some even disappear and leave town. With a former career of 23 years in sales, to date, neither my wife nor I, had experienced our listings being handled like we would handle it ourselves. And knowing me as you do, I can be very demanding.
All we ever asked was just the simple courtesy of some notice before showing the house and afterwards, hopefully, hearing back from the agent after the showing. Any kind of report, good or bad, so that we knew what positive feedback or objections people had about our home. To date, not one single agent has performed with any kind of formidable style of professionalism… until Christina Zecca.
What a pistol! Christina is a total professional. She has performed beyond our wildest expectations. Each time she has shown the house, she has given us sufficient notice to “get ready”, as both my wife and I are professionals and seldom home. And she has reported back to us every single time she has been involved with the house. She has made several suggestions to help us market the house better and even shot an aerial view from a helicopter of the back of our waterfrontage. She even tolerates our cats and puts them away before each showing.
Rob, even you don’t deserve such “absolute perfection” in a sales specialist. The girl’s an icon! Give her a raise, give her a better car, whatever it takes to keep her under the Waterfront Properties banner. In fact, don’t bother… Tell her I am holding a position open for her at Classic Dreamcars. I’ll give her an expense account, match her salary, and a vintage Ferrari to drive. Just as soon as I can talk my wife into it.

Bill and I would like to say “thank you” for the professional way you handled the sale of our home. The one thing that really set you apart from other Realtors we have dealt with, is the way you communicate with your customers. You always returned our phone calls promptly, kept us informed of every detail and there was never a time when we felt you were not 100% involved in selling our home.
Relocating is always stressful, and we appreciate your making our move as stress free as possible. We will highly recommend you to our friends.

Thank you for all of your wonderful assistance in finding us our dream home and for helping us sell our other house. I appreciate the time you spent with us and your patience with our conflicting schedules. When other people told me finding a house and trusting a Realtor would be difficult, I thought the worst. Then I met you, someone I knew I could trust and find us what we were looking for. You are truly a professional and I wish you all of the best.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help. There was not enough time to find a place to live in on top of planning our wedding. Your knowledgeable assistance allowed us to accomplish this task without any problems.
Your energetic personality and your flexibility allowed us to continue our busy schedules without interruption. Going out of your way to meet all of our needs was extremely thoughtful and kind. House hunting is not a fun task, but your professionalism helped lighten the burden during the most important times of our lives.
We look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks again.
