My Background

So here's my story...

I left behind a 20 year career as an officer in a Fortune 200, where I was fortunate to have learned so much, found lifetime friendships including my soulmate, and been able to raise four kids while being an execution ninja.

Currently I'm the founder and CEO of Suncierge, Inc., which is the brainchild of my lifelong passions for travel and helping women and their loved ones. So why did I leave the safety of "big corporate" and follow my heart? Because over the years I watched colleagues give their hard-earned paid time off back to their employers because they didn't have time to use it. In fact, American employees returned 658 million paid time off days to their employers in 2015. What?!

This motivated me to leverage my domestic and international travel experience and expert planning capabilities to start Suncierge, the first travel service to provide comprehensive travel design, preparation and concierge services for the time-starved who aspire to travel, but want to leave the details to a trusted advisor who anticipates all their needs before, during and after the adventure.

Now you can delegate the planning chores to Suncierge as your one-stop travel shop. You’ll receive creative, vetted, and quality recommendations, whether you’d like a unique boutique hotel experience for your romantic escape, a wine or whiskey getaway for your group of girls or guys, or even a vacation rental property that is suitable for your reunion. No cookie cutter packages or feeling like a number here, just a business that was born to build relationships and help you handle it Olivia Pope-style.

Ask us about free breakfasts for two, complimentary upgrades, and other exclusive perks offered on travel experiences with our preferred providers. Then choose from a menu of concierge services like custom pack and wear lists, pet sitting or transportation, stocked groceries upon return and our new SunDialer mobile app that contains all your pre-programmed travel contacts for easy access while you're away.

If you would like a second opinion from a travel expert to troubleshoot your own DIY itinerary, Suncierge also offers a consultative, fee-based travel service where you can chat one-on-one with a travel expert, ask your questions, and resolve any concerns you bump into while planning your own trip.

As a woman and minority owned firm, we continue our advocacy for and service to diverse communities. In fact diversity has taught us that no one person has all the answers in life and especially in travel. In places where we are unfamiliar, we, like any good leader, are surrounding ourselves with a diverse range of specialists so the Suncierge team can optimize knowledge, convenience and satisfaction for you.

Enough about me. Let's talk about you. Say:

Pleasant travel Agent

Christie was a pleasure to work with. She booked my trip with no problems. I had a great trip! I'll book with her again.

In one word: AMAZING

By: anneke

Reviewed on: 11 Sep 2017

I am my sister's maid of honor and Christie helped me book a surprise bachelorette getaway weekend to the Dominican Republic and she TRULY outdid herself! I was so incredibly impressed I asked Christie to plan and book a France trip for me and my boyfriend at the time. AND OH MY GOODNESS! Christie MORE than exceeded my expectations! Her organization, professionalism, and attention to detail were OUTSTANDING! She arranged for things that I did not even know I would need. From the most impressive ( reasonably priced and centrally located) and unique hotels, to transportation from town to town or site to site, to tour bookings, airport transfers, and dinner reservations! Just everything! What I didn't know was while she and I were planning the 2 week France trip she and my now-fiance were planning how he would propose to me at the Palace of Versailles! What a fairytale! She arranged for a private picnic at the Palace! I cannot wait for her to plan our honeymoon! I can't travel w/o her!

Customer focused professional

Christie is very customer focused, regularly checking in just prior and during my trip. When an issue with my return flight cropped up, she was able to resolve it without any need for me to get involved. I look forward to continuing to work with Christie on future trips

Santorini Experience

By: Alisha

Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2017

Fabulous! Christie couldn't be better to work with. She thinks of everything. She made this trip super easy for me. She even thought to have me stay in Athens a night to break up lots of flights (which I hadn't wanted to do because of the cost). This thoughtfulness on her part really made the trip, if I hadn't done the extra night in Greece I would have been exhausted when I got home. The hotel she picked was delightful and I got an upgrade. It was a pure delight.

The right amount of guidance

By: Bob

Reviewed on: 01 Oct 2017

My wife and I plus another couple wanted to plan a special 25th wedding anniversary trip and had a few ideas. Christie worked with us to refine our ideas and presented a few diverse options. Once we selected a river cruise she negotiated better values for us. All throughout the process Christie kept us informed. The best recommendation I can give is that both couples have already worked with her again!

Great trip to New Zealand

Awesome. She listened & found great hotels & excursions. Was knowledgeable. Was a great experience.

Unexpected Excellence

By: J. Travis

Reviewed on: 10 Oct 2017

We chose Christie based on a recommendation. Turns out she was exceptional. Yes, she was attentive, prompt and responsive, and that made the trip logistics easy. Traveling with a 4 year old is a delicate matter, but all Christie's recommendations took US into account and great choices were offered. But here is the real excellence, when things went wrong, when a 5 Star property turned out to be in the throes of deep decline, Christie was our ally, she was our defender, and she was our fixer. She saved our trip, doing whatever to rebook and assure us the same level of comfort she knew we expected. We are so grateful for her excellence, even if unexpected. Of course, now that we know, we are coming back for more!

Wonderful experience

By: Toronto Traveller

Reviewed on: 16 Oct 2017

Christie planned our trip, taking into account our sensibilities, needs and goals for our vacation. Her work made things easy for us. She followed up before our trip with extra suggestions, and even a playlist with local music! When our second hotel did not live up to its advertised standards, she facilitated a move and coordinated a satisfying end to our holiday. Christie is attentive and responsive to the needs of her clients. I would recommend her without hesitation and hope we can work with her again!

Tap into her energy and knowledge

By: slick7

Christie is a high-energy, detail-driven professional when it comes to arranging travel. She pays attention to your particular style, needs and desires when putting together recommendations. My trip to Italy was tremendously enhanced by the knowledge and on-the-ground contacts that she brought to the table.

Last minute trip

By: UNC Mimi

Reviewed on: 12 Jul 2018

We first contacted Christie less than a month before a last minute week opened on our calendar. She was excellent at listening to our preferences, within hours finding some great options. Everything about the process was smooth and the trip was very memorable. First class service all the way!

Western Canada


Reviewed on: 15 Jul 2018

Christie is a delight to work with. This was my 2nd trip planned by her. She is wonderfully responsive and in tune with my needs. She takes my travel ideas and augments them in ways I wouldn't have thought about, making trips way exceed my expectations. I have recommended her to several friends and they feel as I do. She does a great job. I will use her again and again. She is especially good at planning trips for women. I wouldn't hesitate to go anywhere if she planned the trip.

Going to bat...

By: MDub

Reviewed on: 02 Aug 2018

Great communicator. Planned our trip after hands on consultation and trip was great. Well...had a few bumps in the check in process. All were smoothed over and made even more palatable at the time by good drinks and beautiful beaches! How the events came to light again was in the "post trip follow up coffee." Have to admit, a first for this traveller. While I will not go into the details, suffice to say Christie was far more upset than we were, two months removed. After listening and probing for more detail, she felt a call to action. She asked for permission to take further action. She went to bat for us. She called the property GM and made them aware that they had a breach in their mission. She went to bat. On most things, I would have just let the incident slide. It gave us great comfort to know that striving for perfection in our trip is HER PRIORITY.

Christie is marvellous

Wonderful! Christie is always thoughtful about planning and attentive to our needs while we're away.

Sedona and Canyon Tours

By: Charlene

Reviewed on: 03 Sep 2018

This is our second of hopefully many more to come vacations booked with Christie Soper @Suncierge. Christie takes the time to understand the needs of the travelers and puts together great packages based on the travelers budget and desired travel experiences for the trip being planned. I would have wasted my own personal time designing my trip and travel experiences, sorting out the accommodations, tour companies and all the details that go with designing a vacation package. Christie's personality, knowledge, communication (from start to finish of trip) and most importantly enthusiasm, make her and Suncierge the "go to" business for your vacation travel needs. Bottom-line...Christie takes the time to know the travelers in order to design a memorable vacation.

A truly memorable trip thanks to Suncierge

By: Allison

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2018

We used Suncierge for our trip to Scotland in September of 2018. Christie made the initial planning process very easy and went the extra mile to find a flight route that got us the best rate. During our trip, we were thrilled with each place we stayed and enjoyed eating locally thanks to the restaurant recommendations provided. It was easy to keep track of our itinerary on the trip with an easy to use app complete with instant messaging to reach the Suncierge team if needed. Would highly recommend Suncierge to anyone looking for a memorable trip abroad!

Wonderful vacation, want to go back!

Christie is very responsive to all questions, thorough, and did an excellent job of planning out trip to the Cayman Islands. I especially appreciated the summary email listing the flights, transfers, resorts, who to contact, medical facilities, etc before we went. She also planned a surprise birthday dinner for me, which was a spectacular treat. We will definitely be using Suncierge for our travel plans in the future.

Honeymoon Planning

By: Malia

Reviewed on: 12 Jan 2019

We contacted Christie to plan our honeymoon to the Caribbean. She was so awesome!!! When we reached out, we were unsure which island we wanted to go. We told Christie which islands we were considering, when we wanted to go, and our budget. She made great recommendations and we settled on St Lucia! She recommended an awesome luxury 3 wall hotel (Ladera Resort) that we had never heard of, but once I looked it up, the reviews were amazing. Long story short, Christie booked everything for us (hotel, flight, travel insurance, and a few activities) which was very helpful for me. I usually plan all of our trips, but having Christie take care of it for us was a life saver. We will definitely use her services again and again!

Travel Agent Christie Soper

By: rikwil

Reviewed on: 08 Jan 2019

She was great to work with. She listened to my preferences and my vision for travel and got right on it. I gave insurmountable challenges with a short turn around three weeks before my intended travel time frame along with tours being booked up for the holiday season and worked out a miracle landing me my intended destination for a 8 day tour to celebrate my milestone. She provided all necessary sources to prepare for my trip and even continued to check on me throughout the actual trip (as I was a solo traveler for safety) and that added effort went along way. I highly recommend Christie and her team for all of your travel planning needs.

Fantastic Service From Suncierge

Reviewed on: 15 Jan 2019

Christie and her organization were incredibly helpful throughout the process. They had great ideas and suggestions for the location of our family vacation and they followed up on every detail. They responded quickly and professionally to every question we had. The trip was wonderful and went very smoothly. Christie is a joy to work with. We were so pleased with her efforts that even before we had actually taken our first trip we were already working with her planning our second. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an exceptional travel agent

Wonderful honeymoon

Christie planned a wonderful honeymoon for us in southern Spain! Having experts plan the logistics helps so much and makes the overall experience seamless. We were so pleased with our itinerary on this trip. We were able to do so much, including hike El Caminito Del Rey which was spectacular. Would highly recommend Christie to others!
