I highly recommend Christine Smith as a buyer's agent. This year I purchased my first home. I was very nervous going into the process as I had never purchased before and was doing it on my own. Christine was excellent at explaining the process and helping me along the way. It wasn't one of my criteria for an agent ahead of time but I really ended up appreciating that Christine only represents buyers. This means that she is there with you when you visit open houses (rather than other agents that are busy doing their own open houses). This was of tremendous help to me because she was able to help me understand what to look for in a home. Christine was extremely responsive on evenings and weekends and I always felt like she was giving me the utmost attention. As I went through the entire process, Christine was always able to provide recommendations for the other roles (inspection, legal representation, etc.). I used her recommendations all along the way and was never disappointed.
