Ratings & Reviews

Christine was just a pleasure to have as my realtor. She was knowledgeable about the area, gave me excellent advice and was available to smooth out every kink in the process. Her relaxed and good nature made buying my home stress free. She was always available to answer questions and never seemed bothered to accomodate last minute requests.

Bought a home in 2013 in White Lake, Smallwood, NY 12786.

The entire process, from locating the perfect home for our needs to closing and taking possession of the keys, seemed effortless and simple and even enjoyable and fun to us. The primary reason for our experience being so positive from beginning to end? Christine Sweetman Vande Vrede., an absolute star in and credit to her profession.

Christine is a treasure-trove of information which we desperately needed in order to make informed decisions along the way. Of the hundreds of our questions she was able to instantaneously answer, all were answered accurately and correctly to our great satisfaction. I think what we appreciated about her even more was that on those couple of totally obscure, specific questions she did not know the answer to, she immediately told us she did not know but would research and let us know. In both cases, the carefully researched the issues and accurate answers were waiting in our email and / or voice mail before we arrived back to our home, 2 hours away.

I cannot speak highly enough about Christine's integrity and the honest way in which she dealt with everyone concerned in the negotiation. I will not soon forget her helpfulness at every step of the way, nor how quickly and thoroughly she responded to messages we left her.

She is an absolute professional, which we needed since buying a home was not something that was second nature to us but she is more than just a professional. She is also a caring, happy and upbeat human being who clearly enjoys what she does for a living, loves working with people and has an innate ability to have you enjoying what you're doing too! Having you enjoying yourself is not a mandatory trait for a real estate professional to have but it certainly does make what can otherwise seem like a frustrating and complex process, a pleasure and something to look forward to each day at each step of the way, instead of dreading - a much more pleasant way to go through the process of buying a home.

I do not know if this site has a way for you to contact me for further information but if so, I am delighted to speak more about our experience with Christine if you are interested in working with her. If the site does not include this functionality, please ask Christine to put you in touch with me and I will gladly answer any questions you have about our experience working with this unique and wonderful person we did not even know 4 months ago but who we now consider a dear friend.

Best of luck to you in your search. Fortunately, working with Christine will keep the need for luck to a minimum!

As a very satisfied client of Christine Sweetman, my wife and I can simply state that her total professionalism, extra friendly demeanor, subject knowledge, personality, reliability, willingness to satisfy, honesty and charm create a relaxing, and enjoyable experience to property purchasing. Could not hope for or ask for more. Gary and Beth Schneiderman  More Less
