Christi is an expert realtor who arranged my purchase of a condominium in California, while I rent and work in Michigan. I quickly became confident with Christi when we met 1/1/2016 and she showed me condominiums in neighborhoods near where I plan to work in Laguna Niguel. She got to know me and helped me narrow down to certain neighborhoods and condo complexes.
Christi maintained contact with me over the next year, providing information on properties and answering numerous questions via email. I called Christi for our second visit 11/18 to 11/19/2016 to show me condos. I flew to California because I wanted to buy. Christi showed me many many condos and we finally walked into the one i wanted to buy! We just knew it was right. I thank Christi for finding me that condo during my November visit when I flew to California from Michigan specifically to buy.
Christi expertly advised me on the offer, looking completely at all aspects of the potential contract. Christi educated me on all aspects of the offer, and counter offer process. Christi kept me informed throughout the purchase so I always understood. Christi also dealt with many constraints, I'm an out-of-state buyer, we had a 3 hour time difference, I found the seller/selling agent to be difficult, imposing short time frames for me, but delaying on their part. Christi was present in California when I could not be present being in Michigan. She went to the inspection. She went to the walk through before closing. She was there for me, without me. Christi negotiated a difficult 'deal' and I am very pleased with her performance and the final contract, Christi negotiated the right price and terms, and I am extremely satisfied.
Mostly I am impressed with Christi personally. Christi is smart, always professional, very knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. We communicated almost daily, she expertly led me through the purchase, and was always responsive to my questions. When I didn't understand, she understood and explained so I could understand - many times.
I would definitely call Christi again if I sell or buy, and recommend her to family & friends. I'm also looking forward to continuing my relationship with Christi if by chance I need to rent my place. I am very grateful that Christi is my realtor. She earned an excellent five star rating.
