I have been providing real estate services to my clients here in the Williamsburg area for over twenty years. I am very proud of my approach to real estate, meaning the focus of my business is the relationship, I work very hard to assure that the needs for each and every client is my priority.

You will find me easy to work with, as I am dedicated to the success of my clients and meeting their real estate needs and their goals in buying and selling properties.

I have been fortunate to have had many years working and owning businesses in the hospitality industry, which has provided me an understanding of excellent client services. Today, as a REALTOR« specializing in the Williamsburg/James City County and surrounding rural area markets, I couldn't ask for a better job. It is a great feeling to live and work in an area with so many opportunities, doing something I enjoy doing everyday, and making peoples dreams come true.

I have made Williamsburg my home most of my adult life, and every day I gain a greater appreciation for this area and all it has to offer. As a fulltime Associate Broker, my approach to real estate is focused around getting to know my clients as real people whose company I enjoy, and taking care of them from beginning to end of their real estate experience.

You will find me to be always honest, sometimes having hard conversations with my clients that they might not want to hear, but appreciate the candor and understand my intent is to work for their best interest, and that I am hardworking, and extremely knowledgeable about the Real Estate industry. I believe strongly that it is not only my duty to represent my clients to the best of my ability, but also to educate them throughout every step of the process armed with information and market insight, so that my clients make the best decision possible and most importantly have fun with the process!

After being raised in upstate New York my husband and me moved to Williamsburg in 1980 where we raised our two daughters and now have three wonderful grandbabies. We enjoy travel and spend time outdoors with our horses, hiking, sailing and gardening, Life is good!

I will make buying and selling your home a wonderful and memorable experience. I will use my years of experience to help you achieve your goals with the least amount of stress possible. Whether you are a first-time home-buyer or a seasoned seller, I will bring a welcomed energy and integrity to your real estate adventure.

My Client Testimonials

Chris began as my real estate agent & quickly became a friend. She knows this area & cares about it because she lives here too. She's involved in our community & knows everyone. There's nothing she likes better than walking a piece of property because she loves the land. If you're buying or selling she's the woman for the job. You won't find a smarter, more knowledgeable or more caring agent than Chris Austin. I've lived in this area for almost 75 years now & whether I'm buying, selling or looking, Chris is the "who" I call. She's definitely a 5 Star choice. Hazel Nixon Richardson
Wish we could give Christine Austin 10 stars! She is an award winning realtor whom we feel blessed to have found when starting our home search in Williamsburg. She knows real estate inside and out, and is a wonderful person to work with. Chris has been selling real estate in the Williamsburg area for many years. We were moving to Williamsburg from another part of the state, and Chris┐ vast knowledge of this area was invaluable for us. She could always answer every question we had throughout the entire process of house hunting, submitting a contract, negotiations, and the final details of the purchase. Chris has contacted us several times since our move to ensure that we are getting settled in, finding our way around town, and to inquire as to whether she can further assist us in any way. Christine Austin is a very professional realtor who always does her best for her clients, and we highly recommend her! Ben Kruzinski
Christine Austin handled our home sale leaving the Williamsburg area 12 years ago and coming back to the Williamsburg area 2 years ago. She proved to be on top of the process, leaving no surprises. When we were coming back to Williamsburg, Christine listened and found the perfect fit for us - meeting every specification we gave. She actually convinced my wife to take a look at a home that we had initially crossed off the list. Christine did research and saw the fit. Once we visited the site, we were convinced too. Christine does not push, does excellent research and offers solid advise. Bruce Keener
As a first time home buyer the thought alone, of purchasing a home was enough to make the most physical responsible person shutter in fear due to the overwhelming and borderline panic inducing loads of information, red tape, and various hoops to jump through. I honestly felt like it was impossible for someone like me to be opening the door to their new place, as well as opening the next chapter of my life. What made the difference in my experience is that fact that I had a knowledgeable, professional, approachable and experienced realtor; Mrs. Chris Austin, at Coldwell Banker Traditions. If it was not for her knowledge of how to proceed throughout the home buying process, I am positive that I would be destined to live with my parents forever. What truly made my home buying process an unforgettable experience in my life is due to the hospitable nature of Mrs. Chris Austin. If I needed anything at all during or even after closing, Mrs. Austin assured me; she was available any day and at any time (yes, even at 3am). Thank you Mrs. Austin for your education, patience, and warming heart in the purchase of my very first home. -Blake Jarrell
I have been a real estate investor for over 35 years and can say that meeting Chris Austin over 22 years ago was the best thing that ever happened during the course of my ventures. She has proven to be an invaluable asset in every respect of the real estate business. Her professionalism, a rare trait for most real estate professionals is a breath of fresh air and one that I truly covet in representing my side of each contract. Her devotion to me as a client is most certainly given to each of her clients because that is the kind of person she is. Any person able to secure her representation is the better for it, no doubt. You would be lucky to have her agree to be your guide through the maze of selling or buying of real estate. M. Brown
The process of buying and selling a house can be horrifying, Chris Austin is a brilliant resource and fierce advocate to have on your side through one of the most difficult processes you can go through. She wades through the information and makes sure you know things about the homes you are interested in that you might not have noticed on your own, as well as finding gems that were not on popular sites. She has helped me through the processing of selling and buying twice now, and I plan to use her again! I cannot recommend her highly enough. Tammy Garlock
Chris is the best realtor I've ever known! She is patient, thoughtful, and a true people-person. She is a tireless advocate for her clients and she is there before, during, and after a transaction. I heartily recommend Chris to anyone considering selling/buying a house. Carol Tieso
Chris was our realtor for our first home purchase (we are still residing in.) We can't tell you the patience and kindness she has, especially when all of this was so new to us. She knows what she's doing and She's had many years of experience. Chris always answers questions thoroughly and if she doesn't know the answer to something right away, she finds it quickly. Chris is so wonderful to work with. We recommend her to anyone that asks about a realtor bc she is that great! Kris and Erin Martin
