Krista Taurins, La Rosa Realty

Krista Taurins


Looking to sell? I know how to market my listings to reach both local and international buyers. Before becoming a Realtor, I was the Executive Director of the American Chamber of Commerce in Latvia, in Eastern Europe. This background has allowed me to consistently be a top buyer's agent in the Central Florida market. Through extensive and far reaching advertising, including on numerous websites in Europe (I speak three languages), I make sure my listings have maximum exposure. I create gorgeous virtual tours that make your home look so good, you'll second guess your reasons for selling! I am a paid advertiser on multiple websites with Premium Placement and a Webmaster driving internet searches to my websites ensures my listings are seen by even the most tech savvy buyers. I also make sure my listings have multiple and well-edited photos and lengthy descriptions.

Looking to buy? I moved to Central Florida after spending a decade in eastern Europe. After years in the snow, I was ready for the sun. I fell in love with the lush greenery, warm climate, sunshine and great quality of life. I can never grow tired of looking at a dark pink sunset with a dark palm tree in the foreground. It takes my breath away.  As a non-native Floridian, I know exactly how confusing it can be to decide where to live. Do you want lakefront, golfing, close to the beaches, close to Disney, the best schools, close to work? Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you'll make. Let me be your expert guide.

Central Florida is an amazing place to retire or raise a family. There is something for everyone. Whether you are an investor, a retiree, just getting started or anything in between...we have something here for you.

I can have all the credentials in the world, but if my past customers aren't happy with me, it means nothing. These are some reviews from my past customers from my agent profile on

  • Krista is a tireless worker when she helped us find a home. It was our first time to buy in the area and since we live in PA it was a little scary to be doing this long distance, but Krista uses technology in such a way we felt close. She made the negotiations easy and was always pointing out things we could do better. I would definitely recommend her and would use her again.
  • Krista is very professional. She is very knowledgeable about the current market and will work with you and your needs. She will make you feel like you are her only client, as her services are personalized to your needs. If she does not know the answer to your questions, she will find an answer for you.
  • Krista is very knowledgeable about the Central Florida area, and clearly has managed to thrive in a very difficult real estate market. She tirelessly dealt with banks, ferretted out information about the history of a property, and kept a sense of humor throughout the entire process. We always felt like we were getting the straight story from Krista, and that her goal was to make sure we had a home we were happy with--instead of just seeking a commission. We would recommend Krista to anyone.
  • Krista is a very good agent. She is very helpful in getting all the info on the property that, I was looking at. She would get back with you immediately and that was so helpful on getting the paper work in. If you would like to get a very good agent, I would RECOMMEND this agent
  • Krista was always ready to help and answered all my questions quickly....and if she didn't know something she found it out and got back to me fast. I didn't end up buying but I would go back to her again if I decided the time was right for me.
  • Krista Taurins is excellent with clients. From the moment I called her she has gone above and beyond all expectations in helping me to sell our property and locate another smaller, single family home for purchase. Krista ALWAYS returns my calls and answers any questions I may ask. Before finding this Real Estate agent I had made contact with other agents from other companies with low results. Charles Rutenberg Realty is fortunate to have such an involved agent as Krista Taurins. Charles Rutenberg Realty is sharp for bring Krista on to their team. If you really want results from an agent, Krista Taurins is the one to call.
  • Krista did an excellent job helping us find a home in central Florida. It was our first home purchase, so we were a bit clueless and unrealistic at first, but Krista was patient and provided the guidance we needed. She was never pushy and always seemed to have our best interests at heart. She knew central Florida well and made the home-buying process go as smoothly as possible. She always returned our phone calls promptly and was always on time (or early). She's not only professional, but friendly too, which made finding our new home very pleasant. Highly recommended.
  • I enjoyed working with Krista. She was always available to help whenever we had a question and went the extra mile to help us in our decision process. Our closing went off without a hitch.
