Krista took the time to learn what our family's unique needs are, as well as what our likes and preferences were, and quickly lined up homes in the communities we wanted to live in to view. Once we found the perfect home she worked tirelessly with our finance team to quickly close on our property. Thanks Krista.
Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Sanford, FL.
I was buying a home in central Florida for the first time and Krista was extremely helpful in finding me a home. She has a lot of knowlwdge about the area and showed me homes that fit exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend Krista to anyone, weather your a first time home buyer or not, you are in good hands with Krista and the La Rosa Realty team.
Krista is an excellent Realtor because I mentioned to her that I may be interested in buying a particular investment property but it would be difficult to find what I wanted for the price I could afford. 5 minutes later (via email) I received multiple properties that met my criteria. Her knowledge of the area and understanding of people is what made this happen.
Krista was a Godsend to our process. She was knowledge and friendly and had great ideas for us in marketing our home - she thinks outside the box. With her help, we were able to sell our home quickly - around Thanksgiving time - which is a horrible time to try to sell a house. She's funny and positive and kept in touch with us regularly... no wondering or worrying about what's going on. She's definitely not one of those "I listed it - so now we're just waiting on other agents to come and sell it for me" type realtors. In fact Krista sold the house herself to our buyers. We can't say enough how grateful we are to Krista and the hard work she did for us. On a personal note, she's got a great sense of humor, she's earnest, very smart and a very honest person. You couldn't do any better than to pick her. :-)
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Orlando, FL.
My wife and I feel so lucky to have Krista as our agent who helped us in buying a house in Central Florida. She is very professional, knowledgeable, responsible and responsive with excellent communication and problem solving skills. And most importantly she cares very much of her clients. She always provides her professional inside and takes extra steps to help answer our questions. All these make the process smooth and a pleasant experience for us. We are in Canada and worried about the distance and this was the first time we buy in US. With Krista's helps, now we own a nice house in Florida and are not afraid of the distance any more and very confident for future purchases because we can totally trust and rely on her. Everyone who has seen the house told us it is a very beautiful house and is wondering how we can find such a nice house. I have a lot to say about her and her services and definitely recommend her to everyone looking for a professional who really cares of her clients.
I was so blessed to have Krista as my Realtor. She is very professional and is very knowledge of the real estate process. She knew what direction we needed to take in order to accomplish my goal. The process was long and tedious but she never gave up in accomplishing it. If a friend ask me for a Realtor, I will be referring them to Krista because I know they will be taken care of.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Altamonte Springs, FL.
My husband and I are both in sales and just moved to North Carolina. We were using Zillow to look at houses and began reading reviews for real estate agents...and that's how we found Krista! She is an outstanding real estate agent who is easy to talk to, communicates well, and is always reachable and responds promptly. She's lived all over the world and is able to bring that view to the table. She knows everything there is to know about all of Central Florida, including the beaches! She doesn't try to convince you to buy every house you see. She really wants to help find the perfect house for you. She would often point out both positive and negative things about houses that we hadn't noticed or considered.
Krista really provides a personal service and develops a relationship with her clients that can be life-long. There is a very good reason why Krista Taurins is so highly rated and well-reviewed on Zillow....because she's the best!!
I have already recommended Krista to two members of my family and they could not be happier with her. She will stay with you from the start until the finish and not disappoint. Feel free to contact me if you want to speak in person.
I had a great experience working with Krista. Very pleasant and easy to deal with.Immediate response to my inquires and great knowledge of the area made our purchase very easy. Highly recommend.(?????? ??????? ?? ??????)

Someone recently asked me about the question marks at the end of this review. Serge was continuing his review in Russian and if you don't have Russian font on your computer (I know, I know, who doesn't have that on their computer, right?) it shows up as extraneous punctuation marks. =)

Krista is a tireless worker when she helped us find a home. It was our first time to buy in the area and since we live in PA it was a little scary to be doing this long distance, but Krista uses technology in such a way we felt close. She made the negotiations easy and was always pointing out things we could do better. I would definitely recommend her and would use her again.
Krista is very professional. She is very knowledgeable about the current market and will work with you and your needs. She will make you feel like you are her only client, as her services are personalized to your needs. If she does not know the answer to your questions, she will find an answer for you.
