I have combined my love of cooking with my passion for real estate to bring you a a whole new way of taking a virtual tour. What better way to get to the heart of the home than through the kitchen. I feature a recipe in a home I am helping a client buy or sell so you get a real glimpse of what it's like to live there. Featured recipes are either from my cookbook, Be Free Cooking, or from a collaboration with my clients. Join me for a delicious adventure as I take you through the Bay. Enjoy!
Anyone looking to buy a gorgeous Pleasanton home that must be near an ice cream shop that was voted best in the United States? So glad to say I've got the exact home you need! Check out my latest episode of Real Food Real Estate for my virtual tour of 645 Oak Circle and a profile on none other than the famous Meadowlark Dairy!

Don’t stop to smell the roses…stop and eat them instead! Episode 7 celebrates 83 years of the Pleasanton Rose Show where I make an edible floral arrangement. Watch as I take you back in time to the 1940’s for the first rose show, share a little Pleasanton history, and do a step-by-step demonstration on how to make a rose bouquet. Recipe will be in the show notes soon. Thanks for watching everyone!
This episode is not a virtual tour this time. Instead, Christina takes an opportunity to thank her viewers and supporters for all of their encouragement as she launched Real Food Real Estate.
Dive into Fall and make this festive soup at your home this holiday season.
Christina took advantage of the spectacular backyard at this Fremont property and showcased two things- the bocce ball court and her recipe for penne pasta mascarpone.
Every home has unique selling points. By featuring the large yard and open concept living in this virtual tour and real estate cooking show helped the sellers quickly (only 5 days on market AND over asking) find a buyer in a market where homes seem to be languishing.
Christina sold this property for $1,850,000 and represented the sellers.
Christina's latest listing at 2896 Hillside Drive in Burlingame sold so fast she didn’t get a chance to do a virtual tour. This video isn’t about selling this home, it’s about celebrating it.
What better way to celebrate the sale of this home than by making a recipe using ingredients from the garden. Since the owners were Italian, she decided to reflect their heritage by making Limoncello, a sweet Italian liquor made from lemon peel and vodka. The backyard lemon trees were bursting with fruit, making this an ideal ingredient to highlight.
Join Christina as she toast's the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one for this property. Salute!
Christina represented both buyer and seller and sold this home for $2,800,000.
Join Christina as she speaks with special guest, designer Debra Szidon, and takes you for a tour of her remodeled kitchen.

Christina takes you on a virtual tour of 11 Golden Eagle Court in Oakley, California during this first episode.

I am beyond excited to announce the launch of my new real estate cooking show…Real Food Real Estate! My new series puts a spin on the virtual home tour by taking you to the heart of the home…through the kitchen. My new trailer below gives you a sneak peek at what's to come.

For clients who choose me to list their property, my goal is to let potential buyers get a real taste of what it’s like to live there and feel that emotional connection with it. For clients who choose me to help them buy property, your episode will celebrate all of the reasons why you fell in love with your new home and will document the exciting chapter that is about to begin. The first episode will be coming soon, featuring my buyer’s fantastic new home and the recipe will be pasta Bolognese. Yum!
I love being a Realtor at Elation Real Estate and I love being a cookbook author, so combining these two passions feels really nice. Whether you are selling, buying, or just want to learn about a new recipe, I hope you enjoy this new labor of love.
Join me for a delicious adventure as I help you buy or sell your home.
