"I had no doubt that hiring Christina Petrie to build our website would be the right thing to do, even if I didn't fully grasp the complexities of what we were asking. I have unshakable faith in who she is as a developer and as a person. Her passion for her work speaks volumes. She always listened to our requests; she is an excellent communicator and above all, a problem solver. No challenge was too great for her and no detail too small. Christina has built our site within a site so that we can manage updates with ease, and will be able to expand the site to incorporate new features as we grow. Suffice it to say, we are truly satisfied with the result!"
"I was referred to Christina to finish my website which the previous developer was unable to complete. I wasn't optimistic that it would actually ever get completed since the previous developer stated it was the most challenging website they had encountered. Christina was immediately positive and confident and completely up for the challenge. She assured me that it would get done. She is smart and tenacious and very determined. She went above and beyond to complete the project. She also took a genuine interest in my business which was not only refreshing but I truly believe the secret to her success. She always made me feel like we were in it together. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone building a website."
"We were so thankful to have Christina's talents to help design and develop the website for Franklin Project. She was an invaluable extension of our team from the beginning. We had ideas, but they needed structure, shape as well as a look and feel that fit our brand. From our initial launch through many new pages and updates, she always delivered. Her collaborative approach helped us out a lot, saving us time and could turn our vision into reality. Now our website is the perfect blend of beauty and functionality."
DAVE HEPP, CREATIVE DIRECTOR, THE FRANKLIN PROJECT
"Christina's web development gifts are unparalleled! Her support on my project was seamless and priceless. I would not have a beautiful and optimal site without her help. More than that, she was such a pleasure to work with; gracious with any questions or adjustments, expedient with responses and tweaks, and super helpful in explaining the inner workings of my platform. Her phenomenal expertise allowed me to focus on my gifts, and feel carefree and confident about the construction of my site. Christina's services were exactly what I needed and I remain ever grateful to have partnered with her on my project."
"Prior to hiring Christina my website was a jumble of things I had done without a clear vision of what I wanted to be doing. She helped me figure out what to show on my website and how to show it, to attract the kinds of clients who were looking for the things I want to be working on. It has brought clarity to me about my own goals and direction.
Christina is a good communicator. She knows about marketing and what websites are intended to do for you. She has a special way of getting to the core of why we do what we do and creating a website that shows your business's intent and desired clientele. She asks the right questions to find out what our businesses are about and what kinds of clients we want to work with so we get more people inquiring about work that are the fit right.
It was fun working with Christina on my website and going through this process of discovering where I wanted to take my business."
"As a new small business owner, I was very excited to get my website up and running. And while I am an expert in my own field, I quickly felt overwhelmed by all of the details associated with launching a website. It was critical to me that my site looked and felt professional, and that I would not have to spend my time trying to troubleshoot technical issues I did not understand.
Partnering with Christina immediately eliminated my overwhelm. The process was easy and I have been delighted with the results. Whenever I have questions, she responds immediately and helps me make the best-informed decisions.
If you are even considering outsourcing your website build, please do it! Save your time and headspace for the details only you can handle, and hire a friendly, supportive expert like Christina to help your business shine."
"When it comes to website design and development there is no other person you want on your team more than Christina. Christina makes the overwhelming task of building a website feel easy and fun. She is not only incredibly talented at creating a completely unique and user-friendly website experience, but she makes sure that it is aligned with your vision and values. Christina is customer-centric and makes sure that each and every one of her clients feel like they are an MVP. She is supportive, patient, and generous with her time, skills, and talents. Anyone who is ready to build their website should not hesitate to hire Christina. You will not be disappointed."
"I had no website or brand prior to working with Christina. She took my wildest dreams and transformed Yum and Yam into a brand and website that 100% represents me and my business. The way she presented options and walked me easily and effortlessly through the design process was invaluable. There was so much thought and intention put into every step.
I am so grateful to have chosen Christina to guide and support me through this process because she brings both her technical and design expertise to the table. In addition, she genuinely cares about her clients both as a person and as a business. I am beyond excited to show off and share my beautiful online home for Yum and Yam."
"When I considered a new website design, I sought out recommendations from women business owners I respect. Christina Petrie came highly recommended. After meeting her in person and reviewing various websites she had designed, I knew she could tell my story in such a way that readers would relate to me.
I was feeling overwhelmed by the task of redesigning my website, but Christina walked me through the process with clear questions and insightful feedback. With Christina's expert guidance, the process of building my new website was enjoyable. My new website is truly me and expresses who I am, what I offer, and how I work with clients. The initial feedback is "It's easy to read, navigate, looks fun, and professional." I highly recommend Christina as a Web Designer."
“Meeting Christina has been a godsend. After working with Christina, I felt as though she exceeded all of my expectations and really made me feel like I was an important customer to her and that getting the site right for my business was her top priority. She was highly responsive and communicative. The rate in which she completed things that to me seemed really complex, was quite astonishing.
Looking back at our work together, I can honestly say that she delivered on everything that a small business owner would want - incredible communication, professionalism, and high-quality work. Christina has been an invaluable part of building Prana 365 from a concept to a fully functioning fitness business. I'm grateful for all of her work and expertise and highly recommend her."
“I have worked with several developers in the past, and as a "non-techie" it has been frustrating to both translate my artistic vision as well as make decisions about technical issues that are outside of my comfort zone.
From my first call with Christina, I knew I was in the right hands. She has a unique skill set that includes technical expertise, design, and entrepreneurship--and is a lovely human, too! She was able to help me think through all technical considerations and stayed communicative and collaborative throughout the entire process.
Christina was able to troubleshoot and fix absolutely every technical issue that arose, followed through on every single detail, and came in on time and on budget. We also built with the future in mind, so my site can continue to grow with my business. My site looks beautiful and works exactly as designed.
I highly recommend Christina for any online entrepreneur who wants a beautiful website with a rock-solid technical foundation!"
“You could not have a better person on your team! Christina is professional and easy to work with. She is so patient and is very knowledgeable about web development. She works hard to make sure your site is as perfect as possible.
What sets her apart is she is able to communicate to clients that may have little or no experience with websites. Honestly, I was dreading the process but Christina made it fun and I learned so much from her. She has amazing follow through and I always felt like I was her most important client when I was working with her! I have already recommended her services to several other professionals.”
“I tried to create my own site and save some money. Well, that didn't turn out well. So I invested in an expert. I needed someone who was not only technical, but could get to know me and dig deep for who I am, and then develop a website that reflected me and the coaching services I have to offer. Christina did exactly that.
I can tell you what my old site was like and how it was electrified and brought to life by Christina's wisdom, creativity, and warm personality. Be ready to do some work, and together you will create a wonderful piece of your life that can be shared with the world.”
“I was looking for a designer who could help me with 3 essential components: ease & efficiency in editing my website, ability to sell my programs from my site, and a website I was excited to drive clients to because it genuinely reflected my brand. Christina helped me achieve all these goals and more!
The greatest benefit was her generous presence as a listener and collaborator. She asked the truly important questions and genuinely heard the answers; enabling me to find my own voice within my brand. I am grateful for her unique blend of intuitive and technical gifts. Because of her expert crafting, I have a beautiful website that reflects who I am, what I do and why I do it. I finally have a website I want the whole world to see!”
“There are many DYI web templates out there that I was considering. The challenge lies in that none of those templates teach you how to market yourself or showcase your content.
Christina didn't just design a website for me. She helped me articulate who I am, what skills I want to showcase, and how to populate each page to engage and motivate audiences to reach out. I could have never marketed my freelance business that way and encourage all creatives to consider the advantage of having a professional like Christina walk you through this crucial phase of your business.”
"How did an average gal like me start a successful e-commerce business without a tech background? Christina Petrie. Hiring Christina was the best decision I made in order to get my business off the ground. She offered fantastic input and recommendations, like a true consultant. She's not just a Web Designer. I highly recommend her."
“Christina really helped me to organize my thoughts and goals of my business and put it out into the world in a cohesive way. It helped me to know where I wanted to focus my energy and talents. Collectively putting the website together helped me to feel more confident about the direction I would like my business to grow. She was super easy to work with, patient and understanding of my individual style and how I wanted to present my website.”
“My biggest challenge before I hired Christina, was where to start and how to navigate all the "tech" stuff I'm not familiar with. I felt overwhelmed and at a loss with frustration. Now I have a professional website that communicates the message I wanted to share with potential clients.
Christina had great advice on the copy, getting clear on what and who I was helping, and how to convey what I was trying to communicate with my audience. If you don't know where to start or maybe you've started your website and you've gone stagnant, call Christina and she'll have a great perspective on what you need to really upgrade or just start your business.”
“Christina created a smart, professional, and mobile-friendly website that is driving more traffic to my site, and that I am proud to show my prospective clients. I couldn't be happier with the results!
I also signed on for Christina's Website Care Package so that she can handle all the technical aspects of maintaining a website, leaving me more time for my business. If you are looking for a website developer who will take the time to understand your business and delivers a great looking website, then Christina is the one for the job. I highly recommend her.”
“Christina asked me what I wanted to see in my website and she nailed it spot on! She really took the time to listen to what I wanted and more than once made sure I was going to be completely happy and satisfied! She also has a gift of keeping the timing/end date on task with a sense of humor and a lot of patience. She's amazing!! I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
“Christina built me a website that makes me feel good about myself and my business so that I can approach new clients with improved confidence. Because it is well designed and looks professional it establishes credibility and trust with my clients. I don't have to brag about my work because my website does that for me.”
“Working with Christina is a dream. She is organized, efficient, and able to interpret a designer's vision. When we started working together I was nervous about passing off a design for a lot of reasons. Luckily Christina was willing to offer advice, feedback, and an understanding for what will actually work versus just look good. I highly recommend her!”
“Oh my, it is beautiful! You have done such amazing work and you are a pleasure to work with. I never thought a web site could come together with this little angst. I am so grateful to you for working with us, and look forward to a continuing relationship. I have received so many positive comments about our new look.”
“Christine Petrie is a gifted Web Designer. I appreciate her desire to make sure I had input in the design all throughout the process. She has been great to work with and I look forward to an ongoing relationship.”
“Our website was 10 years old and not mobile friendly. Being in the highly competitive Los Angeles real estate market, where buyers want information immediately, we asked Christina for help designing a luxury site for us. She was highly responsive and detailed and did a great job for us.”
“Christina is a pleasure to work with, extremely well-organized, but she also knows how to roll with the punches - an important attribute when things take longer than expected to come together. Christina worked together with a designer to produce a website that the client and I are both very happy with. I plan to work with Christina again, and I'm looking forward to it."
“Within 10 days and while she was on vacation in Hawaii, Christina rescued us in a BIG way. She migrated our website to a new hosting service, moved our domain and updated our nameservers. In addition, she secured our site and got us ADA compliant. We never lost a beat and we did not experience any downtime. In fact, the day we went live, we received 3 new bookings. We have never gotten 3 bookings in one day.
Corinne and I both highly recommend Christina for your website needs without hesitation. If you want a strong advocate and a trustworthy and adept technical professional for your website needs, don't wait any longer, call Christina now. We will be forever grateful to her for saving our website and creating a solution that works for all of us, especially our guests.”
"Ultimately, we landed on a facelift for my existing site, and I have never been happier! Not only does it look amazing and is exactly what I envisioned on the front end, but Christina cleaned everything up on the backend, as well.
I now feel confident about how my website looks and works. For anyone on the fence about working with a WordPress developer, I cannot recommend Christina’s assistance highly enough – it is the best money I’ve spent on my business in a long time!”
“My business was growing so fast that I could not find the time to take care of my website. In fact, I was not even aware that there was SPAM on my website! When Christina took it over there was a ton of work to do. Quickly and efficiently she made all the necessary changes. Now I have peace of mind knowing it is being taken care of.”
“I chose Christina to build my consulting website because I had a vision in mind and I knew she could bring it to life. She did. She listened carefully to what I needed, made recommendations, was quick, direct and very easy to work with.
I added her security and maintenance package because I wanted her continued expertise. Our project was so successful I've already got plans to use her for my next website.”
“Christina has been taking care of my website for almost a year. She has made life so easy! She takes care of hosting, backups, software updates, security and makes the website changes in a fraction of the time that it would take me to do it. She has made several very helpful suggestions for improving the layout and the content. She responds to my email questions quickly with lucid explanations. When I request any changes to be made, she provides a clear estimate with reasonable price quotes. She makes the website changes in a fraction of the time that it would take me to do it. She is professional and friendly throughout all this. She is worth every penny!”
"We are extremely happy with the work Christina was able to do to our aging WordPress web site. Following Christina’s work, our web page was now readable on mobile devices which it wasn’t before. Additionally, Christina:
revamped our formatting so it was visually more appealing
added security to our contact widget so that we no longer received loads of junk spam emails
vastly improved our gallery so it was easier to use
updated our site so it was easier to navigate
added SSL security and google analytics capacity which we didn’t have before
Everything we asked from Christina was done in the time frame and costs committed. We will happily use Christina for future enhancements to our web presence.”
“Christina helped us with a flawless move of our new website to her hosting platform, and pointing our old domain name to the new website. In addition, the services she offers mean that our website will be protected and maintained with little or no effort from our organization. She has also been a great technical resource when we have questions about WordPress. She is very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. We highly recommend her.”
