Dave and Marcia T.

We started working with Christine 2 years ago. She was patient and gave us lots of information about the different areas in Santa Cruz County. When we finally found “The One” she was skilled in negotiating the best deal for us. She was responsive and handled all of our concerns diplomatically. We are now in our new home and couldn’t be happier.  Christine was a calm and reassuring presence throughout our years in search of the perfect place for us.

Christine was professional, knowledgeable and caring. Wonderful knowledge of the process, analytics and rules specific California. She explained the necessary paperwork and inspections needed so that the house closed on time without any surprises. I felt she made the transaction a win-win for both parties involved. Thank You Christine!

I have worked with Christine on both ends of a transaction. First, the sale of a property, followed by a purchase. In both cases, she drove the deals to successful completion that benefitted all parties. The processes were aggressively managed in timely and professional manner — at no point did Christine drop the ball. Hiring Christine is the first step on the path to success.
