About Clara Cristina
Clara Cristina Arango brings her keen eye for design details and her competitive, athletic edge to her Real Estate career. Expert in home staging and new-home design, Cristina lends to her Real Estate “chops” a can-do attitude and a passion for success in working with the most discerning of customers/clients.
Starting her professional career as Head of the Design Department for textile giant, Fahilos, S.A., Cristina not only learned the real-world application of design, she cultivated strong relationships with special clientele. Blending these talents in design instruction means she’s a strong advocate and adviser to those choosing options with new-construction floorplans and interior design/decor.
Cristina compares her Real Estate career to her tennis mentality. “I love playing doubles because it’s about partnering, and I like the game and the strategy.” She plays at Division I and considers herself “extremely competitive,” a quality homebuyers and sellers have come to strongly value at the negotiating table.
A native of Colombia, Cristina completed her high school education in Medellin before coming to the U.S. to study at Pine Manor College in Boston, MA. She completed her undergraduate studies at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellin, earning her Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. Furthering her passion for all things design, she pursued her Master of Fine Arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA.
Christina has volunteered with Hugs and Kisses, an organization helping terminally ill cancer patients with medical bills; Cristina designs jewelry and has coordinated fashion fundraisers to make a difference in the quality of these patients’ lives.
Because of her design talents, Cristina has the unique ability to “see the bones” of a home and help buyers determine their best home options. On the listing side, Cristina effectively stages a home for prompt sale at list or above-list price.
“Out of respect to my customers, I listen intently and honor their requests, while educating them about Real Estate in South Florida.” Cristina is disciplined in her own life staying fit, healthy and—most importantly---READY to attend to her customers’ needs.
Whether you’re buying, selling, renovating or renting, Cristina can provide you organized and excellent results, making your next home your most enjoyed.
