What Clients Are Saying About Christy 


I have purchased several homes over the years, and no other agent has the intelligence, business savvy, genuine concern for their clients the way Christy does. Christy is the consummate professional. She sees potential issues coming, and prevents deals from going sideways because of her proactive nature and her vast experience. She is the person you want on your side of the table – she is thorough, prepared, and quick to get answers for your questions. Christy has a great network of Inspectors she relies on because they have the same proven and impeccable work ethic as she.

Christy was great to work with! We started the process not really sure what we wanted and she was very patient and showed us many dierent properties. When it came time to make an oer she walked us through the entire process. After the offer was accepted, she and her team anticipated every question and preempted every concern. She was a joy to work with and utterly a pro at what she does.
