Christine Ra represented us in the purchase of our new apartment. I would highly recommend Christine as your Real Estate professional. She is smart, personable and responsive. Christine was very responsive to every questions and got back to us quickly. What could have been a painful process turned out to be quite easy. I hope never to have to move again, but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.
We love our new home!
As a first time Buyer, I had all the help I could ask for when I decieded to go with
Christine as my Broker. She is very professional, always puntual, honest and reliable.
She guided me though the entire process and was always available.
I will be working with Christine on all my investments and would highly recommend
Christine to anyone looking for a real estate Broker here in New York City.
There aren't words that fully describe the experience of working with Christine. Her professionalism, warmth, availability, and expertise exceeded our expectations. It was as if we had known her our whole lives from the start of our venture to the successful end. Reassuring and extremely competent, Christine would be the only agent we would recommend and would use again and again.
Christine was extremely helpful and commited in working with my budget. Her most admirable attribute was her professionalism and willingness to guide me and my parents through my first renting process especially being so far away from home 5 stars!!!
Christine's attention to detail and customer service skills go above and beyond that of any broker I have met in the past. When looking for my apartment, I felt as if I was touring these places with an old friend. She has an ability to create a relationship with her clients that promotes honesty and comfort. A nice change from the cold business approach or used at salesman routine. At the end of the day, you are looking for your home, and Christine understands this. She did everything in her power to assure that I was one hundred percent satisfied with a place before pulling the trigger. I would happily recommend her to anyone that is looking for their new home in NYC.
Christine helped me find my very first apartment! I was 22, straight out of college, and had never had a place to call my own. Needless to say, I was nervous and had no idea how to go about finding an apartment. I am so glad I found Christine to guide me through this process. Not only was she professional, she was also very personable and helped alleviate my fears. She was mindful of my low budget, yet also had high standards and only showed me nice, clean apartments. We spent 2 full days running around the city, hopping in and out of cabs. She was patient and cheerful the whole time. On the 2nd day, I found my apartment in Washington Heights! She even took a great video of it so I could show it to my friends and family. Immediately, she negotiated an amazing price for me, and I was moved in within a couple days! The process was quick and painless thanks to Christine!
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Flatiron District, New York, NY.
Christine was a huge help to me as a first time buyer. She not only walked me through each step of the entire buying process but was able to provide excellent connections to real estate lawyers and mortgage brokers. I felt confident asking her any questions and received honest answers.
I have recommended her multiple times to my friends who were considering buying in the city and would do so again without hesitation.
Helped me rent a Other home in Washington Heights, New York, NY.
We've used Christine to find multiple apartments and have referred her to work with several friends - the experience is always exceptional! She has great relationships with building and management across all of New York - and seems to constantly have access to really special listings that you can't find elsewhere (with streeteasy or other brokers). When it comes to price negotiation and the logistics of renting a place in Manhattan - she's a total pro who can help you get the best deal, while reasonably setting your expectations.
And lastly - she's just awesome to hang around with. Hunting for an apartment can sometimes mean days on-foot with your realtor, and Christine has the perfect, level-headed and positive attitude to make a stressful experience really easy.
I'm writing this review because I've worked with many brokers in the city and no one compares to Christine. What I love most about Christine is her honesty and her efficiency. She is a true professional who cares about her clients and works fast to get them what they want. There is absolutely no run around with her, unlike most NYC brokers. I recommend all my friends to Christine! Not only have I been beyond pleased with her service, so many friends of mine have as well. If you want the real deal, someone to do the work for you, and lessen the stress of finding a place in NYC, there is no other option than Christine Ra!!
I moved from Gainesville, FL to NYC without an apartment lined up. Just when I was starting to panic I found Christine! She found me a fabulous apartment at a price I could afford and even introduced me to my roommates to be. Christine knows her stuff and made my transition extremely smooth. In addition, I know several other people who haved worked with her and they share my sentiments. She is definitely the broker to go with!
