Christine is an exceptional person, and an exceptional real estate agent. What makes Christine unique is that not only is she knowledgeable and savvy about our complex Santa Cruz market, but she is considerate to both her clients and her business partners. We felt blessed to have a real estate agent that was also a friend to us and that sellers and other agents respected.
We worked with Christine consistently for over a year looking for a house and made offers on over 10 houses. She was patient and consistent throughout the process and never made us feel uncomfortable for taking so long, looking at houses over our means or for flip flopping on what exactly we were looking for.
In the end, Christine helped us secure a house in our desired location and negotiated a large discount for repairs from the seller. We couldn't be happier and have so much gratitude and respect for Christine.
We had a wonderful time buying our first home with Christine and her team. We had actually met her a few years earlier when she was door knocking in our neighborhood. When we called and told her we were ready to get serious, she didn't waste any time, especially important given how quickly the market was moving at the time. Christine gave us access to the listings we toured a few homes before finding "the one." At each house, she would leave us and tell us to imagine it were our home. Immediately we would know if it was the right house or not. A very useful exercise when there is a tendency to get swept away with the idea of our first home. Christine is a love-based Realtor and it shows. After we found our dream home, the time came for Christine to fight for us to not only get our offer accepted but also successfully navigate through the entire home buying process. We hit a few barriers and even thought the deal was going to fall through a few times, but Christine comforted us and helped us persevere. She has an incredible ability to keep her cool and maintain a level head even in the presence of heated attitudes. With all said and done, we are very happy with our new home and know that we couldn't have done it without Christine. Thank you!!
