I have worked with many agents in the past and Christine renewed my faith in the home buying process. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to make you feel like her ONLY client. Anytime I showed interest in a property, she would get all the information for me, run comparables, meet me at all the properties I was interested in so she can answer any questions on the spot, etc. At the same time, I never felt pressured to get anything that I was not 110% comfortable. She was patient through the entire process AND after the sale was completed. I ran into some issues with the street address and recorded info with the city/county. Without her help, I would be completely lost on how to resolve the issue. Not only is she knowledgeable in her field, she is has a wealth of knowledge in all areas of home improvement. She is a true professional and I would recommend her without any reservations.

She made our home buying experience a wonderful one and I can't rave enough about how hard Christine worked hard for us in every aspect of this experience.

Christine responded very quickly when I put several requests in to see some homes after 8 months of being on ziprealty.com. My husband and I had been working with an agent previously and we were looking for a better fit. It was out of her area, but after a discussion we agreed that she would have time and availability to show us homes. The first appointment was rescheduled with no reasoning. We met a few days later. She brought her husband along saying that they were a team but I don't see his info online. They seemed very knowledgeable. We found a home that we wanted to make an offer on. It had an offer accepted that same day so we wanted to go on backup. She said she would get to the paperwork in a few days. I waited. Two days later she still had not sent us any paperwork. She called me about the offer two and a half days later and asked how we should go in but told me she would reach out to the other agent and get back to me Monday. I had to get in touch with her on Monday because I never heard from her. She then told me the agent just wasn't getting back to her and she would keep trying. It is now another two days later and she has not responded to me about that or any of the other houses we requested to see. You get an idea when someone has bigger and better fish to fry.
Response from Christine

Gosh Christine, I am saddened to read your review. As you know I have worked tirelessly for you and as you mentioned, I responded quickly. I have been relentless in my quest to get the seller of the home in escrow to consider your request to submit a back-up offer. As my reviews demonstrate, this is what I do for every client. It is quite common for sellers to hold off if they choose until the buyer in first position fails to perform. Regardless, I will continue to pursue this for you, I never give up. More recently, we text regarding your recent requests. My understanding from your most recent text suggested you would circle back letting me know your availability. I guess our communication got lost in translation. I am always available for you and will continue to pursue the seller on your behalf.
