Ratings & Reviews

Real estate was at its worst when I worked with Christine. I wanted to sell but if I couldn’t get the right price, I was going to have to rent. She managed to get me both. She found a tenant who wanted to buy but the time wasn’t right so in addition to a lease, she negotiated an option to purchase as well. She did extra things like picking me up at the airport and by letting maintenance men in my home while I was out of town. Her background as an attorney was also a huge asset when a few things of the nature came up. Yes, we had some differences but it was a tough time. In the end, it all worked out and I would highly recommend her.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this testimonial. It was a challenging listing with some hurdles to overcome! We were able to accomplish a lot, though, working together as a team. I am glad I was able to secure a solid tenant and potential buyer for your property. I wish you the very best!

Bought a home in 2014 in Encino, Los Angeles, CA 91403.

I love Christine Kim. I have two friends that sell real estate and was going to use one of them to help me find my dream home... Then I met Christine at an open house. I liked her immediately and she started sending me listings even though I was "working" with another agent. Christine just got my taste and wanted to be helpful. She is just lovely, smart, talented. I liked her so much that I ended up going with her because she got how picky I was, returned calls right away, was on it! The process is sometimes so tedious and she made it fun and she's patient and makes sure you don't buy something that you'll regret. I looked forward to seeing her even if the house wasn't right. I can't say enough good things about her. You won't regret working with her.  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Westlake, Los Angeles, CA.

My husband and I needed to sell our condo in Los Angeles that we were renting to a tenant who was very reluctant to move. We “inherited” her from the previous condo owner. Although my husband and I had spent time talking with her in person, previous to listing this condo, we also talked with her during the listing. We were unable to be in Los Angeles to meet Christine Kim or her colleague Adam Pergament in person during the listing period. Adam, immediately on the onset of our listing, did a professional job in photographing the condo. Almost two years ago, my husband and I moved to California/southern Oregon border, by the Pacific Ocean, a long distance from Los Angeles. This is one of the reasons why I had to depend so much on Christine and Adam, by phone calls and email regarding the sale of our condo. Both were not only quickly responsive to my phone calls or emails, but they would contact me regarding any updates, questions, or additional information. My biggest nightmare was that our tenant would not move from the condo at the time escrow was to close, even with my husband offering her a substantial financial compensation. Both of these agents had an additional job, in many capacities, to work with her. Christine and Adam advised me on our asking price for a quick sale, among other significant advice. Through their expertise and immediate actions to market our condo, it sold quickly. Their advice succeeded! They went far beyond “the call of duty.” I consider both of these agents to be friends. They deserve a much greater commission than what they received. They treated me as though I listed a multi-million dollar home, not a small condo. I feel a spiritual connection with Christine, an extremely caring woman. She, patiently, spent time with me by telephone not only on real estate matters but some personal matters I related to her—as busy as she must be. I am looking forward to meeting these special people in person. It was no coincidence that I first met Christine by phone; God was “looking out” for me!  More Less

Dear Sandy, I felt like we had a connection as well. I am glad we were able to list and to sell your condo so quickly, and at the highest price to date in that building! Your faith in our abilities and your wilingness to take our advice in terms of how to present and to position the property helped make the sale process go well and quickly. Thank you, and we hope to be able to work together again soon.
