Looking for a good agent?  Check out what Cris' clients have said about their relationship with her whether they were Buying, Selling or Renting a primary residence, investment property or vacation home.

Mike & Dan Pugh Sellers & Buyers

"Cris is a true professional. She helped us purchase a new home and sold our previous home simultaneously. She answered every question we had, attended every meeting with the title company for both properties and was able to smoothly coordinate flexible move-in dates based on the needs of everyone involved (Previous home buyer, us and the seller of our new home). It worked out perfectly even when we couldn't imagine how she would do it. While Cris simultaneously cares for all her clients, she never allows that to interfere with what's happening at the moment; She can multi-task effortlessly and is always accessible. We've referred several others to Cris and will continue to do so. We carry her business cards in our wallets and recommend her services whenever possible."

Luke & DeeDee, Seller's Aug 2018

Thank you so much Cris! We are very happy with your thoroughness, attention to detail and pro activity. We felt completely comfortable with the whole process and that your system of advising on showings and feedbacks was very helpful. We would recommend you highly to any other people looking for top notch services!

Josh P. SELLER 2017

Cris was a huge help to me in 2010 when I bought my first home. It made sense to call her when I was ready to move out of that home in 2017 as well. Navigating the process to purchase a home was a lot harder than I expected but Cris made sure to help me understand everything that was required and when it needed to happen. Cris was a huge help in navigating the endless volley of paperwork that comes with financing a home and transferring property. Another thing that really helped me out was the vast network of business partners Cris has. Whether it was discussing different lending options, finding a contractor to fix the leaky faucet or getting the house painted before we sold it Cris always had a couple of options to consider.

Dana SELLER 2018

*****STOP***** YOU FOUND THE RIGHT REALTOR **** We HIGHLY recommend Cris and can not say enough wonderful things about her and all the ways she has helped us sell our home in one day for full asking price. Cris has worked with us for most of the last year. From the beginning of our renovation to the fruitful end. Her knowledge of the industry and local market was amazing. Cris gave us her exceptional advice, time and even had a comprehensive list of vendors to choose from to help remodel our home. With her help in design, staging and skills as a realtor she helped us get through our renovations and sell our home at top dollar. I truly believe her staging is the reason we received 3 offers in the first day on the market, two of which were at full price. We are in the last stages of escrow and expect to close within the next week. We listed our house for sell only 14 days ago. Her work didn't stop there. Due to her guidance, we were well prepared for all paperwork and other necessary task to allow a quick and painless closing. THIS IS THE PERSON YOU WANT ON YOUR TEAM whether you are selling or buying!

El Vira & Lowell Buyer 2016 then Seller 2017

Crisanna Tutera did a very professional job of helping us choose a home that best meets our needs. She was very through in explaining the complex paper work and procedures that go with purchasing a home. We never felt rushed or pressured. Our experience with her was very satisfactory. We can highly recommend her as she often went the extra mile for us.

Fernando Buyer, Seller & Landlord

Cris is an amazing real estate professional. She represented me in the purchase of two homes, and the rental of a third home. Unlike a lot of agents out there, Cris does this full time and has for the past 15 years now. As an Associate Broker, ABR, CRS, GRI, PMN, AHWD, CNE, e-Pro, CNE, CSSN, SFR, she has a strong academic knowledge and commitment to stay on top of the evolving world of real estate. But she also has deep practical knowledge as a homeowner and a real estate investor in up markets and down markets. I have learned a lot from Cris, and am confident you will, too.

Terry & Sue Hurm

Cris helped us purchase our next home & then SELL our existing home all within our timelines. She was extremely knowledgeable, caring and very thoughtful about our needs. Knows her job very well and you feel confident about everything because Cris is so good at her job. Would recommend Cris to everyone who wants a smooth and comfortable move. Cannot say enough about her ability and knowledge of real estate. Terry and Sue Hurm (Jan 2017)

Brian Ford, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Consultant

I recently had the opportunity to work with Cris Tutera to help our mutual client purchase their new home.  Cris was by far one of the best agents I have had the pleasure of working with. She is extremely responsive and knows her business well, a true professional.  I would highly recommend Cris to anyone looking to purchase a home in AZ.

Bernie & Lana Belisle

Hi Cris, Lana and I would like to thank you so much for guiding us through the sale of our patio home in Verde Groves in Mesa Az. Your knowledge of our community was a definite asset, with handling the HOA transactions, and highlighting all the features of our home and community most certainly helped in finding us a buyer in a very short time. We really appreciated the continuous contact, almost daily updates of what was happening, be it showings, calls to you from other realtors, whatever, we didn't need to chase after you for information. Also after all the negotiations were done, your help with getting all the paperwork, and signatures coordinated with the title company, and all the help with the many questions that we had, you were there for us all the way. I would highly recommend Cris Tutera to anyone in the mesa area, very professional and transparent dealings. We again, want to thank you for everything and wish you only the best in the yrs to come. Also , a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous new yr. Best regards Bernie and Lana Belisle, Sherwood Park , Alberta, Canada (Unit #176)

Bill Apple

If you're thinking of Selling or Renting I highly recommend Cris Tutera. RESULTS MATTER!
Cris' extensive marketing reached the broadest audience from the 1st day of our listing, resulting in multiple showings.  She then negotiated to get us top dollar and kept the transaction on track thru to a successful Close of Escrow all under the average days on market! 

We used Cris' Listing Services twice, first for a 12 month Rental & then again when we were ready to Sell.  

Hire Cris and be ready to move! Regards to all Bill & Yollie Apple, Verde Groves Unit 238  (Dec 2012)

Vern Watkins Family

Douglas Stewart

Dear Cris, You were such a thorough and competent agent that I knew our house would sell in record time. Also I should mention you are detailed and your aggressive marketing gave me the confidence that I had chosen the right person. Being in the home building business, I wish I could find agents with the same commitment and focus for our clients as yourself. In closing I would recommend you highly. If you need recommendations please have clients get in touch with me. Sincerely, Douglas Stewart President Forcast Homes (Southern Division)

Donna Badder

Cris had total management of my search for a home. She exceeded all of my expectations by going above & beyond. I don't think there was a single time that I wasn't able to reach Cris. She was always available...even on weekends and late at night. Even with a 2 hour time difference, she answered every call I made. I had set criteria for homes that I wanted to view, she only showed me those type of homes. When making an offer, she listened to what I wanted and offered advice. Just a few words to rate Cris' service...SUPERIOR, FIRST RATE, PROFESSIONAL! My move to Phx wasn't an ordinary one, I had tight deadlines & did not want to make a double move. I explained all the criteria up front to Cris & she worked diligently to exceed my expectations. She worked hard & represented me in EVERY manner & never missed a beat. As a satisified buyer, there is every reason to seek out her assistance again & also to recommend her to friends, future coworkers & potentially family.

Carlos Uriarte

Thanks for the terrific service Cris! When issues came up you were proactive and creative in finding solutions. I felt that you had all the bases covered between your cell phone, office phone, email et al. I never once felt that you were non -responsive and I knew that I could always depend on you to get back to me in a timely fashion. I couldn't ask for more, you did an outstanding job!

Chris Misiak & Julie Meyerson

Congratulations, Cris on your election to the Board for the Women's Council of Realtors! We sure hope they know how lucky they are to get you – we can’t believe that you’re able to cram one more responsibility into your schedule. You’re amazing and we’re lucky to be working with you. Best of luck!! -Chris & Julie

Carrie Sheridan

With the tight timeline of our closing date you managed the process amazingly! I truly believe that another realtor would not have been able to keep everyone to the deadline set and made it possible to have such a seamless move. I was impressed to see it all come together so well! Thank you

Lynda Rahi, Center City Realty

Cris, It gives me great pleasure to write this letter. In all the years which I have worked in real estate, it has been rare to work with a person with such professionalism. The manner in which you handled your side of the transaction is to be commended. It made the transaction go much easier and according to schedule. I will definitely seek out your listings whenever possible to assure a smooth and pleasant transaction for my clients. It was a pleasure working with you. Sincerely Lynda

Erika Nottingham

Cris, what a fantastic job you did marketing my home. Your creative ideas allowed me to market my home in other ways than just flyers. It is nice to know there is a realtor out there who focuses on the needs of the client, not just on the sale. It will be my pleasure in the future to recommend you to friends and clients. Best wishes and thanks for everything.

Holly Carnahan

Cris, I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends if they plan to sell or buy. You are one of the few realtors who treated John & I cordially despite the FSBO. If we end up needing help on the buy side, I will call you!
