Cristine has been a Real Estate Professional since she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from Metropolitan State University in Denver, CO, in 1992. Her first job was a receptionist in a busy commercial real estate office in downtown Denver and over the years continued to strive and learn more and more about the Real Estate Business. Since then she has gained experience in the management and construction of various types of real estate including Class A and B Office Buildings, Medical Office Buildings, Retail Centers, and Industrial Properties. Cristine has had opportunities to work for great property management companies in her first 15 years of property management. She received her real estate license during her employment in June 2000. In 2003, Cristine was offered an incredible and challenging opportunity as a General Manager with a prestigious company that managed and owned Medical Office Buildings on hospital campuses across the country. Cristine was an integral part of the construction, pre-leasing, design and management of the first medical office building on the brand-new Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center Campus located in Lafayette, CO. She also was a part of the construction of the Exempla Imaging Center and MOB4 located on the Exempla Lutheran Medical Center Campus in Wheat Ridge, CO.
In 2006, Cristine decided to fulfill her ultimate dream of self-employment and business ownership. She relocated from Denver to Colorado Springs and worked for a small real estate company for several years before starting her own real estate company in 2012. During that time, she went into partnership with her Father and “Gritz Enterprises” was born. The Father/Daughter team invested in residential flips in Denver, Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. Cristine enjoyed using her creative side in remodeling and finish choices and her supervisory side by overseeing the contractors while her Father had to listen to the stressful stories. Although Cristine has enjoyed all she has had the opportunity to learn and experience in the world of real estate, she realized that she missed the property management side of the spectrum and found an opportunity to become a part of the Olive Management Team in January 2018.
Cristine is a proud Colorado Native who loves people and enjoys time with her little dogs, her good friends and her family. She loves to fish, camp and hike in the beautiful Colorado Mountains and she thrives on staying busy and being productive daily.
