Christina Griffin is in the top 1% of all real estate agents in the United States, with an illustrious career in distressed properties that has spanned nearly two decades. Christina entered the world of real estate as a bright-eyed and determined 18 year-old, managing a 650 unit community while balancing motherhood. She has always displayed unparalleled leadership qualities and the hunger to succeed, both of which earned her the #53 spot on The Wall Street Journal/REAL Trends Top 1,000 Individual Agent List in 2016, among her countless accolades, including being the recipient of an Elder Award and nominated for Tampa Bay Business Journal Woman of the Year Award in 2016. She has over 4,000 closings under her belt, and her properties average only 45 days on market, with a list-to-sale price ratio of 96%. She specializes in all aspects of the distressed properties field, and made history by creating and leading the first short sale department with her prior company.
As a firm advocate for the importance of family, Christina feels a personal commitment to cultivating communities and fostering home ownership. With distressed properties brings distressed families, and the key to Christina’s success and longevity is her compassion for her fellow human beings. Her strengths lie in teaching others how to master their thinking to achieve success. She is the epitome of “fall nine times, get up 10!” So, what is her secret? According to Christina, “Success is yours if you are willing to work for it unyieldingly. Be coachable and be humble. Take control of what is in your control, and do not waste any energy on the uncontrollable. Don’t see a door? Make one! Where others see obstacles, see opportunity! Setbacks reveal your weak-points and allow you to adjust your game plan. Always make a Plan A and a Plan B—and a Plan C through Z. Failure is never an option.”
