With an all-encompassing background in sales, architectural drafting, building and interior design, paired with her degree from the College of Charleston in Historic Preservation and Community Planning with a concentration in Economics, Real Estate and Management, a career in real estate became a natural path for Christa. Born and raised in Westhampton Beach, a coastal town on the eastern end of Long Island, NY, Christa is no stranger to the luxury real estate and residential building market. Her maternal grandfather started a luxury home building company where she spent many of her childhood years on job sites alongside him.
She then moved to historic Charleston, South Carolina. Christa studied community planning at the College of Charleston where the city itself was her classroom. She had a very hands on education, working with a realtor while in school, where she mastered the art of not only sales, but establishing and maintaining close interpersonal and professional relationships. She attended local Board of Architectural Review meetings where she immersed herself in the culture of the Historic Society and city planning department.
Christa studied landscape design and also drafted restoration plans for Mt. Zion AME Church. She held an internship with Architectural Digest featured interior design firm and showroom, Fritz Porter. Christa’s thesis was published in 2016 by Storyboard America, where she writes about the importance and significance of preserving the traditions deeply rooted within her family.
Her passion for sociology and love of meeting and talking with new people has made Christa known to bring an unparalleled and personal client experience. In her role as a realtor, she brings a unique perspective on regional architectural significance and varying design elements in real estate to the Anderson White and Associates team.
