Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Littleton, NC.
I started working with Chris around the year 2000 when my wife and I were looking at real estate at Lake Gaston. We made many visits to the lake over the years (before kids and through having 3 over a 15 year time period) and Chris was always ready to help. We knew we really wanted a home at LG, but we could never make it work financially based on the market conditions.
I'm happy to say that we have finally bought a home at Lake Gaston and Chris again was there to lead us through all the complexities.
I would highly recommend engaging her services as a relator.

Thanks so much! I have totally enjoyed working with you and watching your family grow through the years! Can't wait to hear about the kids wakeboarding one day... but all in due time. Wishing you many, many years of fun in your lakehouse!
Chris was very helpful and responsive with a challenging purchase since we lived a four hour drive from the area, even though this was not her listing. She suggested options that we could work with, and always made herself available for what seemed to us like ever changing appointments and closing dates. In an email to her after closing, which she attended with us, we wrote, in part; " We were there yesterday, and the sunset was amazing, thank you for your help :-)"

The listing agent and I both were so happy to work with you and appreciate your pleasant attitude, cooperation & patience while we worked out the solution to our little dilemma! Envy those sunsets!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Henrico, NC.
Christine was extremely helpful with our transaction and made every effort to make things go smoothly. That was very important to us especially since we live 3 hours from where our new property is. I recommend you give her a call first.

Thanks so much for your kind comments, Bob & Robin. I thoroughly enjoyed working for you and can't wait to see the improvements you will make on your fantastic purchase!
Chris Thompson is a great agent. We met Chris about 12 years ago when she helped us find a lot at Lake Gaston. We subsequently built a house on that lot, and we went back to Chris for the sale of that house.
Her sales advice was invaluable. She also took care of issues for us that would have been very difficult for us to accomplish due to the distance involved. Additionally, Chris supervised the removal/donation of all items and furnishings that we did not wish to retain. Her expertise and assistance made the sale of our home very easy for us.
Chris goes above and beyond the call if duty. Her personality and attention to detail was invaluable to us.
Thorough. Knowledgeable. Sound and timely advice. Pro-active rather than reactive. Easy to work with. Seeks ways to help rather than waiting for a request or until help is needed. Excellent relationships with financing professionals. Very good connections in Gaston Real Estate market. Outstanding at keeping us informed and connected with the "process". Top-notch! And incredibly tenacious!!!!!
We were blessed to have had Chris help us find our lakehouse as well as sell our lakehouse. She possesses professionalism and a great work ethic combined with a friendly and compassionate personality. When you can count your realtor as a new friend you know you have hit a home run! Thank you Chris!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Littleton, NC.
I worked with Chris to purchase a vacation home at Lake Gaston and she did a supurb job for me. I didn't know the area well and she oriented me to it and listened to what I was looking for in a house. I'm very pleased with my purchase and her help
Chris really impressed me with her detailed knowledge of the many areas around the lake. I look for quality properties that have good value, and her knowledge & experience have saved me a lot of time. What I like about Chris is she has helped me to learn how to recognize when a property is a great buy. I really regret not buying one of the lots she recommended before...sure would have a lot of great equity if I had; but I'm looking forward to doing business with her in the future.
We are so glad we hired Chris to handle our real estate transaction. We found a house on her website that we were interested in. (Love her website, by the way). Not sure if the house would meet our needs, she toured the house, took a video and emailed it to us so we could determine if visiting the house was worth our drive. Then, she arranged for contractors to visit the home and met them there for us since we were out of the area. She was very knowledgeable and in the areas she didn't have as much information, she knew just who to call to get the right data. I never felt she was pushing the sale. Her style is much more consultative. She returned our emails and calls same day and never seemed bothered by our questions or requests. We would use her again in a heartbeat.
Chris has been wonderful and extremely knowlegable about Lake Gaston and the surroundings. She is helping us find our perfect home, whether it be a home on the lake, a older home that has been refurbished, or land to build our own dream house. She is a great agent. Although, we will not be purchasing until the end of the year or the beginning of 2012 she has been there for us.
