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.

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!

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.

Sold a home in 2014.

I have known Christine for over 5 years and worked with her for 2 years. Christine possesses the skill set necessary to position a property for an efficient and best price sale. Christine does her homework, stays focused, communicates effectively and frequently and knows when to negotiate and when to stop negotiating. Christine is a true professional.

Bought a home in 2014 in Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA 91356.

Christine Kim is great. We were very lucky in buying our first home with her as we were total neophytes to the whole process and could have easily been taken advantage of. We met other real estate agents during the process, many of whom seemed to be overselling and trying to downplay problems or to convince us to buy whatever they had on the market. Christine isn't like that - she'd alert us to dangers on particular properties, warn us against places that weren't as great as they appeared to us, and led us to look at properties we might not otherwise have considered that we wound up loving. She let us make up our own minds and her highest priority was finding us a house that made us happy. Once we set our sights on a house, she made all the arrangements, helped us with negotiating points we wouldn't have known to ask for, and helped us find a reliable mortgage broker and escrow company. I hope we'll be in this house for a long time so I don't expect to get the opportunity to work with her again soon but if I were ever in the market again she'd be the first person I'd call. I highly recommend working with Christine Kim!

Helped me rent a Townhouse home in Burbank, CA.

Christine was exceptionally knowledgeable and responsive. She is a very responsible woman who doggedly seeks answers, makes sure she is accurate, steadfastly develops solutions, and even checks in on you AFTER the transaction! She also has a winning personality who makes her a pleasure to work with. And.....Christine was not initially our agent! She represented her client so well that I was motivated to ask her to help us on our transaction. I highly recommend her to others.

Hi M (and fellow alum), I am glad to have made a connection with you and C, and I hope you are doing well in your new digs. I was up in the Bay Area last week, and almost made the trip to Palo Alto. Was thinking about you and hope to see you soon!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Studio City, Studio City, CA.

Christine was invaluable in helping me find my place---and she was helping me even before I decided to buy...when I was looking for rentals! THAT tells you something right there... She KNOWS the area and was right there to show me he best stuff that became available and was totally flexible to my changing needs. I can't speak highly enough of her. She was very wise in negotiating and also was an expert in dealing with all the contracts, insurance and innumerable details that go into buying a new home.. she's a lawyer too (that doesnt hurt...)

Hi T, Thanks for writing this (a second time, I think, when the first one didn't take). Just saw Michele tonight, and you came to mind. Hope things are going well for you in your truly awesome home, that I love for you. We looked for a while, and we found something so right. It makes me happy!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Sherman Oaks, Sherman Oaks, CA.

Christine helped my wife and I purchase our new home. In the process she showed extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and assisted us in navigating our purchase with what turned out to be a very difficult seller. I could not imagine how difficult it would have been to go through our process with someone less responsive or knowledgeable. After hearing horror story after horror story of other people's experience with either a buyer or seller's broker, I simply cannot recommend Christine highly enough.

Sold a home in 2013.

We've had the pleasure of working with Christine Kim on the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home. This review is about our experience as sellers.

We've bought and sold homes on several occasions in the past, so we felt that we were coming into this process with experience and prior knowledge. However no two real estate transactions are alike, and it's the agents ability to adapt and react to the unique situations that sets them apart from the rest.

One of Christine's top qualities is her responsiveness and availability. She returns calls, emails, and texts in record time, during all hours of the day, night, and weekends. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought we were her one and only client.

Christine is also very knowledgeable of the entire transaction process (buying an selling), terms, laws, and regulations. Her real estate knowledge, combined with her incredible relationship with other local agents and her negotiation skills, make her an asset to anyone she is representing.

We couldn't ask for a more smooth sales transaction. Christine held multiple open houses for our property, helped us navigate through multiple offers, and managed all communication with buyers and contractors to ensure we close escrow on time.

We consider Christine our agent and friend.
