Christina Jones - Sales Representative

Christina was raised in Peterborough. She moved to Florida after high school to earn her bachelor’s degree at Palm Beach Atlantic University. During that time at university, while competing at an equestrian competition, she met her future husband, Sean. The couple remained in Florida full-time over the next decade and were married in 2005.

Christina launched her real estate career while living in Florida, working from the ground up in Palm Beach County to become a member of a top producing group of four realtors, averaging upwards of $70 million annually in team sales.

After 15 years in Florida, the Jones family moved back to Peterborough in 2015 in order to put down long-term roots near family, and to be able to raise their children with a quality Canadian upbringing similar to their own.

After considering many real estate offices in the Peterborough area, it was clear that Christina’s past experience & philosophy best aligned with Stoneguide Realty. She was drawn to Stoneguide’s stellar reputation in the area, and knew the boutique brokerage was a perfect fit for her to continue providing high quality service in her hometown, alongside the carefully selected, like-minded Stoneguide team.
