Christina Fitzer

Having a mother in the real estate industry since Christina’s birth, she has been around real estate for almost 30 years. As a child, she grew up helping her mom deliver flyers, stuff mailings, put postage on newsletters, and postcards. In high school, Christina worked as the receptionist for Coldwell Banker in Gig Harbor and also assisted a top producer in the office. She then pursued a Business and Communications degree from Western Washington University. After graduation, she worked in the finance industry and served as a lender for over 5 years at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and Cobalt Mortgage.

After her experience in the lending industry, Christina decided to move to the city and accepted a position at Zillow’s Headquarters as a National Account Executive. She quickly rose to become the top producer month after month on the New Construction team, assisting large national builders with their online presence and advertising. While Christina loved the company and its culture, she yearned for more gratification in her career and purpose.

Throughout Christina’s life and career, one thing has remained constant – her involvement in the real estate industry. In 2015, she made the decision to obtain her real estate license and teamed up with her beloved and trusted mother, who had been Christina’s mentor for 29 years. Together, Christina and Sue formed a dynamic duo, taking pride in the business and growing it into what you see today.

Active in the community, Christina is involved in non-profit work and her local church. She finds joy in helping and serving others. Real estate brings pure joy to Christina; she loves helping friends find places to call home.

They say home is where the heart is. For me, that statement could not be any more accurate. The love of home has always had a special place in my heart. Being the daughter and granddaughter of local home builders, this industry runs in my blood.

I turned a lifelong passion into a fulfilling career when I became a licensed agent in 2013. Initially, I specialized in property management and leasing services for the top property management brokerage in the Seattle area. After spending five amazing years with that company, I moved to Los Angeles with my husband. There, I worked for the country’s largest privately-owned real estate firm and managed two luxury condominium buildings in Santa Monica. Since returning home to the PNW, I have become a member of the top-producing real estate team, Dwell Home Team, delivering results for my buyer and seller clients.

Combined with my passion for real estate and my expertise in high-touch customer service, you can rest assured that I will work to make your home dreams a reality. I take pride in creating long-lasting relationships through exceptional service, trust, and integrity – I believe these qualities together are the backbone of any strong business. As a proud native of the Pacific Northwest, my expertise and love for the area will help place clients in homes and neighborhoods that best fit their needs and lifestyles.

I can’t wait to help make your real estate dreams come true!
