A successful real estate producer—particularly in a market as competitive as Palm Beach—must have incomparable knowledge of the market, integrity, and a strong network of connections. Such attributes have made Cristina “Cris” Condon of Sotheby’s International Realty a top agent on the island for more than 25 years, selling more than a billion dollars of residential properties in and around Palm Beach over the last decade.
A former resident of Cuba, Chicago, and New York, Condon’s career with Sotheby’s began in 1982 with an already established array of domestic and international clientele. Described as a hard worker with an optimistic attitude, Condon has worked with a diverse set of clients ranging from the experienced, most discriminating investor to the novice first-time buyer. She represents all of them with same patience and grace that make even the most difficult negotiations seem pleasant. This integrity coupled with competence, has earned Condon notable listings and successful sales across Palm Beach. Her most recent headline-grabbing deal was the record-breaking $94.17 million sale of a 15-acre ocean-to-lake estate in Manalapan. The transaction took place this past March amid a flurry of deal activity in Palm Beach County, as buyers continue to flee to the area in search of a better lifestyle during the pandemic.
Condon’s professionalism is recognized not only by her clients but also her colleagues. Kirk Henckels of Compass, a former vice chairman of Stribling and founding director of Stribling Private Brokerage, recalls his experience working with Condon in her early days in the industry. “Cris and I worked together in the mid-1980s, and even then she was the best broker in Palm Beach. In my humble opinion, and I don’t say this lightly, Cris Condon is the best broker I have ever met.” Nikki Field, a top agent for Sotheby’s in New York, had the opportunity to learn from Condon through their cross-market collaborations and attributes Condon’s success directly to her unfailing personal commitment to each of her clients. “It is no secret that her vigorous yet confidential representation is in a league of its own. She truly exemplifies the highest caliber of experience and integrity in a sometimes chaotic, fast paced, high stakes game of Palm Beach residential real estate. The results? Client loyalty and industry respect.”
