★★★★★"We worked with this team to sell our first home. We couldn’t have been happier with them. We interviewed other brokers but this team stuck out from the rest. From the beginning, they were honest and told us they needed to do further research on their end because our home was very different from what they’ve seen. We appreciated their straightforwardness even when we were just in the middle of deciding which brokers to work with. We appreciated their level of professionalism, integrity, and responsiveness throughout the whole selling process of our home. They were just also wonderful and pleasant people to work with. Overall, this team is an exceptional group of professionals anyone would feel lucky to work with."

★★★★★"Cristina was amazing to work with throughout the entire first property purchase. Our family had a lot of “wants” on our list and a very specific target area. Cristina was extremely understanding and supportive of working with us and touring properties in the winter months with a toddler. It was important to us to find a family-friendly place in NYC. Cristina found us exactly what we were looking for in a short time of searching. We are so happy we were able to work with her. We are forever thankful to her for her friendship, knowledge, and ability to coordinate everything we needed in this process!"

★★★★★"Cristina was very helpful in quickly getting me and my roommates into our dream apartment, by far the best realtor I've worked with. She was very professional and made sure that we had all the information and help we needed and more. She even came to our aid at 9 on Valentine's Day cause we couldn't figure out how the shower worked/needed the super's number! Wonderful experience overall, 10/10, would recommend to everyone looking to find a great apartment quickly.

★★★★★"I could not have been more pleased with my experience with Cristina. She showed me a wide variety of Coop's and was very accommodating given my difficult schedule. After seeing a few different apartments we found a place that filled all my needs and I could not thank her enough for her time and effort. I will definitely recommend her to a friend who will need her services. Thank you, Cristina!"

★★★★★"As a first-time home the experience of looking a home very overwhelming. However, Cristina helped make this process easier. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and a delight to work with! Throughout the process from start to end Cristina kept us informed of what was going on with constant updates. She handled everything with great professionalism and always had a smile. Cristina was great to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone out there who is looking for a real estate broker!"

★★★★★"Cristina is one of the most dedicated and honest people I know. When I first emailed her via naked apartments at 7 on a Saturday, she got back to me within seconds. That responsiveness continued throughout the entire process. My Astoria apartment hunt was very difficult due to some issues with another roommate, but she was persistent and never gave up. She found me an amazing apartment and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Cristina to anyone looking for an apartment. There are a lot of shady agents in Astoria, but she is the complete opposite. Don't even put anymore thought into it and just give her a."

★★★★★"Very responsive, and professional. Never pressured me in anyway, and she was very honest about the conditions of apartments. Highly recommend."

- Jacob, 4/2015

★★★★★"Cristina Candio was an amazing help in finding our beautiful apartment in the heart of Astoria. She's down-to-earth, professional, efficient, and personable. She brought down the price of our apartment to fit our budget, and we were thrilled to find our new home within a day! Thanks again, Cristina!"

-Liz S, 6/2017

★★★★★"Cristina Candio is the best! I emailed a couple of people on various sites and she is the person that got back to me right away. She also talked to us about the neighborhood and recommended spots to eat at on the day we viewed the apartments. When we left the viewings she remained in constant with us and the building trying to get us deals and the best possible apartment she could. She also contacted us AFTER signing the lease to see if she could help with anything else...ie. mover recommendations etc. Everything she did was above and beyond. She's professional, knowledgable, prompt, and so very friendly! I really liked her and think anyone else that decided to use her would too! I didn't feel pressured into anything and really felt like I was in good trustworthy hands. She just seems like a good person!"

- Carson D, 2/2014

★★★★★"Cristina Candio was unbelievable to work with! She went above and beyond what I ever expected. I've worked with some realtors in the past that could really care less but she truly made me feel like her number one priority. Thanks again Cristina!"

- Christina B, 2/2014

★★★★★"My fiance and I were nervous about attempting to find somewhere to live during the COVID-19 outbreak. With everyone quarantined and NYC closed, we were afraid of scam listings, inaccurate descriptions, and the hassle of moving altogether. But the team at Compass was responsive and understanding of the situation throughout the entire rental experience. From the initial outreach to the closing, everyone we interacted with was extremely professional and competent. In addition to the superior service, the rental property is stunning, exactly as described, and leaves nothing to be desired. We would definitely work with them again.

Thank you again for everything, hope you and your families are well."
