We could not be happier that Christine was our agent for our first home purchase and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her if you are buying (or selling!). Everyone knows the San Francisco housing market is intimidating and outrageous, but Christine helped us purchase a condo in an amazing location on our first bid, within 3 months of deciding to have her be our agent AND we got it for below list (this is EXTREMELY uncommon in SF).
We met Christine at an open house for which she was the listing agent. We were impressed with how knowledgeable she was about the property that she was representing and her attention to detail. After our initial meeting, she took time out of her busy schedule to explain certain unique SF market concepts to us before she was even our agent. By the time we sat down formally with Christine to review our buying wish-list and budget, we had already interviewed 4-5 agents. After our meeting, my husband and I both agreed that our search for an agent was over. Christine’s experience in this market, and the accompanying data from Paragon, ensured our expectations were properly set and we were all on the same page.
Christine was really valuable to us because she is part of the Top Agent Network (TAN) so she would send us properties that fit our wishlist before they were listed on the market. She has incredible connections and is well-known in the real estate community. The best part of working with Christine is her determination to ensure the deal goes through from beginning to end. When we were ready to submit an offer, she worked behind the scenes so everything stayed on track. She remained this way until the close of escrow. She is always easy to get in touch with if we had questions or concerns, even late at night. Additionally, and most importantly, she never pressured us a certain way when we had to make a decision; she presented the pros and cons of both sides and supported us 100% in whatever we chose.
If you are searching for an agent in SF, at least sit down and chat with Christine. I’m sure you’ll be as impressed as we were!
