Showed home in 2014 in Georgetown, Washington, DC 20007.
Our grown sons have moved from California and settled in the Washington, DC area prompting my husband and me to begin looking for a second home there. I began my search on Zillow and soon found several possibilities, however not knowing the area well, decided we needed the help of a Realtor. I can't quite remember how I found Christine Rich, but I'm certainly glad I did!

She has been absolutely great! The first time I flew out to meet her, she spent an entire day showing me properties and familiarizing me with the area all the while knowing that we may not be buying anything soon. She set up emails for Virginia, DC and Maryland listings and changed my search criteria as I requested. Each time I emailed, texted or phoned her, she answered immediately. When we were ready to make an offer on a "hot" property, she did everything possible to ensure that our offer was one of the very first to be submitted. She is knowledgable, efficient, effective, friendly...okay, I think she's great!

I have had the opportunity to work with several wonderful Realtors through the years when Rick and I have bought and sold property. I also worked for awhile during college as a receptionist in a real estate office and my mom was a Realtor in Las Vegas in the 60s when I was growing up. I feel I can speak with some authority about Realtors! Christine Rich is by far one of the best Realtors I have ever known. I have, and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for property in the Washington, DC area.

I so appreciate you taking the time to submit this review! It can be difficult to navigate the specific sub-markets around DC and also to understand the different complexities of the DC, Maryland, and Virginia contracts. In addition, moving here from another part of the country makes it even more challenging! Together we explored neighborhoods from Great Falls, VA to DC. My advise to clients is to take as much time as is needed to find the right property, but when you find the right one it's time to shift into a different gear and work the contract to make your offer as competitive as possible while retaining as much protection as possible.

Bought a home in 2014.
OK, Listen up. You're on Zillow because you're interested in buying or selling a house. We did the same for about a year before finding what we wanted. If you're at the serious stage, run - don't walk - in the direction of Christine Rich. Why? Well, buying or selling a house is a complex and stress inducing transaction. You'll find lots of qualified Agents who can - and will - deal with the complexity of a real estate transaction. Christine adds to that her own unique personality and sense of humor which helps you on the stress side of things. In other words, she works to reduce and eliminate the stress of such a major decision in ways that raise your comfort level so that you can focus on the transaction at hand. There are lots of good Agents out there, but Christine is not only good, she's friendly and that's extremely important at a time like this. Now get going and give her a call.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Stafford Albemarle Glebe, Arlington, VA.
Christine was what you hope to get in a Realtor--professional, knowledgable about our neighborhood and extremely easy to work with. Top that with the fact that she sold our house for $25K MORE than many other Realtors even wanted to list it for, and you get a 5-star rating. Any Realtor can sell a house if the price is low enough. Christine worked diligently during the entire negotiation process, making a great case for the buyers to pay more. I should know about Realtors. I used to do PR for Shannon & Luchs (now Weichert), so I've known hundreds of Realtors. We have already recommended Christine to others.

Thank you Adrienne, this review means a lot coming from you. When preparing and pricing a home for sale it is always my goal to get a great offer and not leave any money on the table. That's what we did, and I'm so glad to know that you love your new place!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $950K in Williamsburg, Arlington, VA.
Thank you Christine! You really jumped in and went the extra mile to help us sell our home. We appreciate all that you did to advise and support us during the selling process!

How great that we were able to find just the right buyer for your home and enable you to find a gorgeous new home in Haymarket. I know you doubted that we could bring up that low-ball offer, but much to your surprise we got you very close to your asking price, making your move possible. Congrats!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.225M in Falls Church, VA.
Christine was very patient and knowledgeable during our buying process, and listened well to our needs. She knows many of the local areas very well, and was very responsive to our needs.

Thank you Molly, it was great working with you and your family. I was so glad we found you the new home that fulfilled all of your search criteria (looking across Capitol Hill, Arlington, Falls Church City and McLean) - not easy given the low inventory, intense competition for homes, and your timeframe. You've got a fantastic new home, enjoy and welcome to the DC area. I am always here for you!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Douglas Park, Arlington, VA.
Christine is an excellent agent with years of experience helping clients buy and sell homes in the DC area.

Christine originally helped us purchase a condo in Shirlington as first time buyers back in 2010. Almost four years and two kids later she helped us sell that condo (within a few weeks, multiple offers) and purchase new construction in Annapolis MD. Her attention to detail and customer service cannot be matched! Not only that, she is a very kind and honest person.

I have also referred Christine to several friends who can also attest to the same level of service.

Thanks so much, I really appreciate your review and have loved helping your friends with their real estate adventures also. You're getting a gorgeous new home in Annapolis, I know you will love living near family and the water! I'm so glad that the whole selling/buying transition went so seamlessly, even with the birth of your second child in the midst of all of that!

Sold a home in 2012.
We used Chris Rich to both buy and sell a home in the very competitive Arlington market. We could not have been more pleased with how Chris managed every detail of the process--helping us sell our home (above asking price) and ultimately securing a new house that had many other competing offers. Chris was really easy to work with and became a trusted advisor throughout the process-I am convinced we would not have gotten our current house without her behind the scenes work to negotiate on our behalf. I always knew Chris had our best interests at heart and she put in endless hours to help us navigate the buying and selling process (never tiring of our many questions). We highly recommend Chris for Arlington and McLean home buying and selling!

You guys are the best! I think I will always remember those intense negotiations that got you your dream house in McLean. It was a delight to get you above asking price on your sale also. Hope the kids are doing well!

Sold a home in 2008.
My husband Matt and I really enjoyed working with Christine. We have made three real estate transactions in six years and Chris has helped us with each transaction. She is smart, easy-going, and, she takes the stress out of purchasing and selling. Nothing compares to Chris's knowledge of the NoVA area. Other agents in the area highly respect Chris which seems to give her clients preferential treatment! Chris is always quick to respond and is willing to work around busy schedules! We are thankful that we met Christine Rich and we highly recommend her for your real estate adventures!

Angela, you are the best, thanks for taking the time to write this. It was so great to, first of all, get you that beautiful Waycroft home in the midst of a super-competitive Spring market, and then second, turn it around a few years later only to set a new high sales price record for the neighborhood. Adventures, indeed!

Bought a home in 2014.
Christine is a wonderful agent to work with. We met her over two years ago when we were renting one of her client's apartments, and liked her style so much we chose to go through her during our buying process. She is knowledgeable, patient, and truly interested in finding the home that fits your needs. She is always responsive no matter the circumstance, and always happy to answer any questions. She has made the process of finding a home quite enjoyable!

Thanks for your kind words! While the townhouse you hoped for never came up for sale during your search timeframe, including all public listings, FSBOs and off-market possibilities (I knocked on doors, sent letters, etc), I think you found something even better. Enjoy those amazing views from your beautiful condo, and know that I am always here to help!
