Christy was an absolute joy to work with. She knows the Belmont Shore/Belmont Heights area like the back of her hand and was incredibly responsive. She always got back to us immediately! Christy was very patient with all of our questions and made our first home-buying experience as smooth as possible. We love our new home and have Christy to thank for helping make it happen!
Christy was a great pleasure to work with. She took into consideration all my requests and was available to answer questions and view places when I needed. She was willing to work around my very busy. Also, she was very knowledgeable about the process and paperwork and stayed on top of it. She looked out for my best interests making sure that all the inspection items were thoroughly investigated and addressed as necessary. I'm thankful that I was blessed to get to work with her.
Christy has been a wonderful realtor. She is a charming lady, and really knows the Belmont Shore area. She schedule many caravans so other agents could see our property, and held numerous open houses. Christy worked diligently to get our condo sold. You will not meet a more warm and friendly person.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Rose Park, Long Beach, CA.
I serendipitously browsed Zillow one afternoon and caught a listing in my desired location and price range. I took a chance and cold called the first agent listed for the property, Christy Di Leo, and that chance paid off with big dividends. Christy has everything a first time home buyer requires: precise knowledge of the area (Long Beach, CA), expertise in the home buying process, extensive network within the industry, blunt honesty, & a genuine personality to see her clients get a great deal. She was extremely responsive and gave me honest advice if a deal wasn’t right. After a few weeks of looking at properties, Christy helped me put down an offer, which was accepted the next day. Christy ensured we were on track to close by taking the time to set up a schedule of critical events and reviewing documents that needed to be signed. I've been in my property for a few weeks and couldn't be happier. I now go out of my way to recommend Christy to those in need of an agent.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Belmont Heights, Long Beach, CA.
Christy worked with us for quite sometime to help us find the perfect house for our family. She was quite patient throughout the process as we changed our criteria a few times. When other realtors would have pushed us into something we did not want, Christy really tried to understand what we wanted and needed and then worked to align options with our needs.
She is very knowledgable about the Long Beach market, especially where we purchased, in Belmont Heights. She also has an excellent reputation with her fellow realtors in the area, which comes in handy.
Christy is kind and truly cares about her customers. Hard to find a realtor with a heart and Christy is just that!
Christy has been a fantastic advocate for my family over the years. We first met at an open house and she stayed in-touch with us, never pushy and always making sure we were comfortable with all aspects of the home searching/buying process.
When we finally found our home, maybe 4 years down the road with her, she was very informative and did a great job playing point for everything. She staying on top of the appraisers, title, lenders and sellers making sure that we weren't bothered by any of it and we had all the information and w/o any of the brain-damage to make our decisions.
Would recommend Christy to anyone looking for a true partner for such a huge life event. Would ask her for help again if the time ever came.
Christy was great in her handling of the sale of my property. Not only very professional, but always optomistic and cheerful. She went the extra distance to sell the property - extra open houses, ad in the local newspaper. I felt mine was the only one she had to sell, and I know that was not the case. Also, everyone I dealt with for this sale was the same - professional and friendly. It could not have gone any more smoothly. I know everyone who looked at the property had to have felt I was in good hands with such a fine broker.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $950K in Alamitos Heights, Long Beach, CA.
We've had the pleasure of dealing with Christy for two purchases and one sale transaction. She is extremely professional, passionate, and knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the transactions we did with her. Most important was her caring attitude and great sense of humor throughout what can be a very trying experience.
We will definitely be using Christy again when the time comes to sell our latest project.
To say you are in good hands with Christy is an understatement. As young first time homebuyers, my husband and I went into the process knowing nothing. Christy was patient with us as we learned the ropes. It was as important to her that we understood the process as it was important to us. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she made the process fun and memorable! Christy was always easy to get in touch with and worked around my husbands irregular work schedule to arrange showings and signings. Christy is also a great resource for referrals; she introduced us to the general contractor who turned our first house into our dream home! I can't say enough good things about our experience with Christy Di Leo. Any homebuyer would be lucky to have her as an agent.
If someone asked me what I thought of Christy Di Leo as a person, I'd say: "I love that chick!!!"
But, if someone asked me what I thought of Christy Di Leo as a real estate woman, I'd say: "I love that chick, and, you gotta use her when you buy your next home."
Christy is the one you want looking for you because she cares. When I met Christy I had been looking for income property for two years. I told her what I was looking to buy, and she said: "No problem."
She asked me how much I am willing to pay, where I wanted to buy, what was my objective (live in, or just rent out) and what would ultimately make me happy.
I answered all her questions and she started sending me emails like: "Here's one you might be interested in. I am going tomorrow to look at the place and I have the bank checking on the numbers for you (to make sure you would be able to manage the payments). It took a few months, but I slept great throughout the entire process because Christy took care of everything.
She checked neighborhoods, looked at places before showing me, and kept my hopes up when things fell through (like the two times I lost out to buyers offering over-asking price for the property I was bidding on). Christy just said: "That property wasn't for you. Don't worry, we'll find yours."
Well, we found it. And I love it.
I am in my sixth week of renovation and I thank God for sending Christy to me. Other property owner friends of mine keep saying: "You got such a great deal. Christy is a real find."
Even now Christy calls to check on my progress. She bought me a beautiful "Landlady Key Chain" from Brighton and when I call to ask the few real estate questions that I forgot to ask earlier, or things that just come up in the mail as a Landlady, she still takes care of it right away, as if I were still her client.
During the escrow process, Christy was in touch with me daily, to guide me through the process, or just to say there is nothing needed today. One particular day, I had to call her a few times and apologized for bothering her so much because she must have lots of clients. She told me: "Gena, you are my only client."
What can I say about Christy? ... except, I'm looking for money to buy my next project through her. Yes.... She is that good....
Zillow, thank you for allowing me to share my pride in choosing Christy Di Leo as my real estate agent...........for life...
Very truly yours,
Proud owner of the soon to be completed "Villa Gena"
(a tiny, perfect complex in Long Beach)
