“Cristoff & Associates’ expertise saved me countless hours of time.”

“After much scrutiny by my team and myself, I have come to truly believe the commission paid to the vendors by the hotel in no way compromises the bottom line to the planner. Of all the third party vendors I’ve worked with, Cristoff & Associates remains the best and the only team I recommend confidently. Not only are they extremely effective negotiators, but they are keenly aware and sensitive to the internal issues which affect the internal planner.”
-Fair Isaac Corporation

“I have to say that Cristoff & Associates is my favorite intermediary. They are easy to work with and their professionalism is fantastic. They always return my phone calls and they always keep in constant communication with me, thus earning my trust. Trudy recognizes the value of having an unbiased third party perform the negotiation process so that both her clients and vendors experience a win-win situation.

Cristoff & Associates takes the time to truly understand their clients’ needs and then they accurately convey all the information to the vendors. Vendors are then able to provide complete and comprehensive proposals that address the needs of the clients…
I know that she has presented my information fairly, accurately, and that she has given me every opportunity to present my best and final offer.

Many third party planners only look after their clients and forget to befriend the vendors. Vendors only offer their best deal to people they like and trust. By being a fair and unbiased negotiator, Cristoff & Associates has gained the trust of vendors and consequently has succeeded in gaining the best deal for their clients.”
