About Me: My name is Cristy Orr. I have deep roots here in the Lake Cypress Springs area. I briefly moved to several "big cities" and within five years decided that there was truly no place like home. Today, my husband and I reside on the beautiful shores of Lake Cypress Springs in a home built by my grandparents while Lake Cypress Springs was still in the midst of being filled.

My career in real estate began in October of 1998 working as the office manager for a local real estate company. I began studies for my real estate license in 1999 through correspondence courses from Baylor University. I was licensed in August of the same year.

I take great pride in my work and believe that going above and beyond for my clients is a part of my job. A home is a common dream for most families, as it was for my own. You deserve nothing less than to be treated with the same care and consideration as I would want my own family to be given. For most people a home is an enormous investment. Whether buying or selling, when you work with me, you will receive all the information that I can possibly collect. The good, bad and sometimes the ugly.

I strive to make all transactions regardless of their difficulty or simplicity, a joyous experience that is remembered fondly for years to come. I LISTEN to what YOU want and then do my very best to DELIVER it. I bring buyers and sellers together, with honesty, integrity and hard work! I am grateful for each opportunity I'm given to make a difference in lives of so many people. I have the experience, knowledge and the energy to make a difference for your family too.

If you are considering buying or selling on Lake Cypress springs or any of the surrounding areas, call or email me today. Let me go to work for YOU!
