About Chris Crasto

Chris Crasto has been involved in real estate on the Gold Coast since 1994. In 2000, he opened Advantage Real Estate in Robina, which serviced the central Gold Coast region, and the Hinterland. Hard work, persistence and the right attitude saw the business grow to a team of 18 in under two years. In 2003, the company was approached by RE/MAX, the worlds largest selling real estate company, and that saw a change in brand to RE/MAX Property Leaders which over the next 4 years grew to a team of 40. However in 2006, due to a change in personal and family commitments saw the directors change their focus from running a large team to running a boutique business that was focused on their value system. The need in the market for a local company with a focus on being flexible and offer clients old fashioned service and values while incorporating modern day professionalism and technology saw the change of the brand to Crasto Properties.

Prior to real estate, Chris came from 12 years of management in five star hotels around the world. He has lived in Europe, Asia and the USA and has had the opportunity to work with and manage people from various nationalities. This experience and the motto of hotel management where the client is always right has seen Chris build a successful real estate career based on a genuine caring and empathy for people. Chris approached real estate as a career, not just a job. He is in this business for the long term and realises that 80% of the success in his business is a direct result of the referrals he receives from his past clients.

For positive results, specialist real estate advice and total integrity, give Chris Crasto a call.

I was relocating from Melbourne to Gold Coast and purchasing property in Burleigh Waters. Chris was very helpful from day one. He answered to many of the inquiries I had regarding the property and the area I didn't know well being an interstate buyer. I would highly recommend Chris Crasto irrespective of selling or buying your property. Great service.

Bruno Rositano

Very professional - A skilled and friendly agent always ready to answer any questions And to help in any way.

Roslyn Dunn

Very nice, professional, honest and competent agent - Over one year we appointed 2 agents one after the other who listed our house for sale without success. Our son recommended Chris as he had a very good experience previously. So it was the third time lucky. Chris had a fresh approach to the presentation and marketing of the house that resulted in a better offer in a deteriorating market that the other 2 agents couldn't match even in a strong market.

Teresa Musolino

Chris always meets our needs in regards to selling. I would highly recommend him and his company. We will continue to use his services due to his work ethic and understanding in meeting our needs.

Donna Louise Harrison

Incredible Agent - This is now my second round of business with Chris Crasto! He is a genuine man who cares for clients with honesty and integrity. There’s no fuss and gives great advice towards selling your property quickly and efficiently! On a personal note, he went out of his way to present my house for sale during my stay in hospital! Agents, with humanitarian qualities, don’t come any better than that! The house sold within three weeks! Thanks a million Chris! Could never have achieved such a positive outcome without your help!

Rebecca Ray

When Lexi Catolico from Crasto Properties knocked on my door to find out if I was interested in selling my home in Merrimac, I was cynical of real estate agents and their promises. However, her friendliness, professionalism and persistent follow-up resulted in me inviting her and Chris Crasto to discuss what they had to offer. As they had recently sold a home a couple of doors down the road, they were confident of getting me buyers for my home. I had previously gone through a negative sale process which cost me money and where the agent tried to beat me down substantially on price. I also had another prominent local agent who through false promises lost me a lot of money. Needless to say, I was skeptical. However, the enthusiasm, energy and risk-free proposal of Chris and Lexi, ended up in me giving them the opportunity. During the listing presentation, I expressed my expectations and concerns. While Chris made no promises on price, he explained his strategies, processes and recommendations. Within a couple of days they had buyers through the property and soon gave me a choice of two offers. Surprisingly, they sold my home within a couple of weeks for a price well above what other agents had promised and without me having any stress. Throughout the sales process, they worked hard and were very professional and courteous. Lexi's friendly demeanor and big smile combined with Chris's skill and experience, which came to the forefront in the negotiation process, resulted in me getting a great outcome. If you are thinking real estate and want an authentic team approach to get you and your property a great result, then give Chris Crasto and Lexi Catolico from Crasto Properties a call and, like me, be pleasantly surprised.

Turgut Kali

Wonderful service and support throughout the whole purchase process. If your looking for a trustworthy agent and with valuable industry experience, then Chris is highly recommended!

Laura & Steve

AN HONEST REAL ESTATE AGENT WITH INTEGRITY- & I AM NOT KIDDING! I have had Chris Crasto look after many sales and purchases of investment properties over the years, and I highly recommend his polite, no BS approach to you. His pre- market listing sales advice was appropriate and up to date. He is on the ball and is a high achiever. If you want it sold see Chris. If you want to buy the right property see Chris. . . . and then if you want a good rental manager for your property. . . see Chris.

Shane Ellis

Excellent service, feedback and overall communication. From the beginning to completion everything ran smoothly with no hick-ups. We would definitely recommend Chris and Crasto Properties to any family and friends!

Melanie Mathias

Team Crasto did a wonderful job.

Skyhe Anderson

Our first impression of Chris was one of professionalism, explaining the entire process from the beginning, making us at ease - with no pressure. And he did not disappoint. We found him to be a very good communicator, being the complete diplomat when dealing with both parties. He was willing to listen and offered tactful help in delivering the best possible result for both parties - in fact he has done far more towards the promotion and sale of our property than any agent we have encountered before. He is willing, without complaint, to visit a client, or discuss any matter regarding the sale of your property at any time of day or night!! Chris was also willing to go beyond his responsibility even after the sale was completed to assist both parties when there was 'nothing' in it for him except the satisfaction of helping a client - demonstrating his genuine care. The bottom line is that Chris sticks to the job at hand & gets results. We would recommend him, and already have, to anyone thinking of selling their home. Best of luck to him in his business, which I am sure he will have great success for years to come. Thanks Chris,

Tom & Judy Clarke

Our home in Robina has been sold by Chris Crasto just recently. Why we’ve chosen Chris to sell our home? Being in an Image business myself, first impression is as important as last; Chris has both. His professionalism and knowledge about the local real estate market was evident enough to convince us to trust him that the job will be done. No empty promise, no pressure or over exaggeration,just real professionalism, passion, enthusiasm, marketing knowledge and good communication; these are the skill Chris should be proud of. Not to mention Chris’s reliability and always prompt response and willingness to help both parties. We needed only one buyer who would appreciate our hard work that had been done through the renovation of our home; and Chris found exactly the right one. The result was a SOLD home in just 14 days! We couldn’t be more happy for giving Chris the opportunity to sell our beautiful home. Thank you Chris!

Alenka Dirnbek
