Sperry Commercial Global-Griffin Partners welcomes Christina Long as it’s newest team member. Christina comes aboard the Sperry Global-Griffin Partners team to expand Griffin Partners into the Asheville, NC market. Christina is a native of Hendersonville, NC and started out in real estate working as a top producer in residential. Christina moved to commercial years later after working with multiple clients in residential that were consistently investing in commercial. Christina also decided it was time to move into commercial to improve her quality of life and the ability to work on larger and more diverse deal types.
Christina brings passion, experience, and intuition to the table in assisting her clients in all aspects of commercial. Christina leads the newly fermented Asheville, NC office of SperryCGA-Griffin Partners and works throughout Western North Carolina including Hendersonville, Asheville, Waynesville, and other mountain communities. Christina has been an owner and investor of commercial and residential properties for many years which gives her an advantage in working with her clients – in that she approaches every deal from an owner’s perspective. Christina is well traveled having spent time in Galapagos, Europe, Pakistan, India, Thailand, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Central America. She sailed the Caribbean and around the South Pacific for four months, spending two months in New Zealand.
Background and Credentials:
In undergraduate, Christina attended the University of Tennessee’s Aerospace Engineering program, American College Italy, Moore College of Art, and Marymount University of Virginia. Christina holds a Master in Business and Finance from Boston University and holds the distinguished Accredited Commercial Professional designation (ACP) through the National Association of Realtors. Christina is licensed in both North and South Carolina.
Mark Griffin, CCIM President of Griffin Partners commented, “We have been seeking expansion into the Asheville market for several years. My wife and family spend a great deal of time in the Western NC area and Asheville is a natural extension for us in proximity to our main upstate SC office. Asheville is an eclectic, fast growing market and beer city USA. Our associates have been involved in millions in transaction volume over the years in the Western NC market so this addition of Christina as team leader in that market was an easy fit. Christina’s diverse real estate background including residential, luxury residential, land, and investment sales is evident in her dedicated approach with her clients. We are excited about expanding all of our commercial as well as business brokerage services to the Asheville and Hendersonville markets.”
