Christine is a professional when it comes to buying and selling a home. She negotiated our home very well, let us know what is expected, and gave us what we wanted. I would use her again if I should come in the market for another home.
-- KC Brackley
Christine was very helpful and quick to respond. Anytime we had questions she was quick to offer solutions. She is extremely reliable. She handled every situation in a most professional manner.
-- Bob Baker
I was out of state my husband was in Arizona but working. Christine would facetime me at the properties I wished to see. Christine went truly above and beyond to find the perfect house for my family! I would recommend her to my friends and family no doubt.
As a first time home buyer I was very nervous about the entire process. She walked me through the entire thing and made sure that I understood each and every option so I had all the tools to make the best decision for myself. I'm extremely happy with how things have gone and will definitely be teaming up with her again when it comes time to relocate in the future.
Christine was very nice and easy to work with. She understood exactly what kind of home we were looking for. We had daily updates on how our process was going from the start and to after we had closed and received our keys. She is an extremely professional. I would definitely hire Christine again and 100% recommend her to all my family and friends.
Christine is a very knowledgeable realtor. I had a pleasure of working with her on buying my first home. Anytime, I was unclear on something or had a question on closing or inspection process, she was always very prompt in responding and more than happy to answer any questions I had. She is very hard working, and a great negotiator. With full time work, part time graduate school, buying a home could get very stressful for me. Christine was a life saver. She took away all the stress, and made this into an amazing experience. I enjoyed working with her, and would without a doubt highly recommend her to anyone.
I live in Los Angeles and I had a rental house to sell in Chandler, AZ. My property manager was unsuccessful in selling it for 8 months and he asked to step aside. I looked for another listing agent and selected Christine after a vetting process as her experience was the best. She sold my house within 3 months in a transaction that had one difficulty after another. The inspection report led to a lot of buyer's demands. The FHA loan appraisal not only came short but also made a condition to replace the furnace. Christine found creative ways to persuade the buyer's agent to meet me half way and the escrow closed on time. During all that Christine kept me informed with emails and texts. I'd recommend Christine to anyone.
Christine Holwell handled our house search as a professional. She was prompt with our appointments and explained the neighborhoods in Gilbert. Her friendly disposition made us very comfortable in asking her how to complete documents electronically. She showed a lot of patience making it easy for us to understand how to complete and sign these documents. Any issues we encountered, she quickly resolved it. After the closing, she thanked us and offered her assistance in recommendations of local general contractors. It was a pleasure working with Christine.
By far the smoothest transaction to happen. Christine give's solid recommendations to list, to include rapid response of communication between buyers agents.
Christine is efficient in providing all documents on time, to include any additional requirements needed to sell the home.
All seller information was provided and disclosed to include buyer info.
I would highly recommend and will use Christine for all future real estate needs.
Christine has been our realtor for the past 3 years and we have purchased two vacation rentals with her help and expertise. Her knowledge of the area, rental market and her negotiating skills have us returning to her again and again. :) I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Arizona.
-- Michele Thorne
Christine was a supreme realtor for our new family. As a young family, we were not the most experienced when it comes to buying homes. Christine was with us every step of the way and was very patient with all our questions and concerns. Her follow up afterwards is phenomenal and I would recommend her to any of my peers. She is her honest, caring and HUMAN self, which we appreciated. Especially when it comes to the sales business. Thank you Christine, you'll be seeing us again for our next home!
-- Lacey Pryor
Christine assisted me through the whole home buying process, From finding the correct area fitting my needs, to giving marketing advice, through the closing process as well as following up after the purchase. Christine really made the home buying process easy. Quick to respond either ( through phone, text, or email) and fast on working with the sellers in regards to questions and requests. Through the process I felt as if I had a friend walking me through the home buying experience. Would definitely use Christine again and highly recommend.
I've bought 4 properties in the past 15 years and have worked with a different agent each time. I would say my experience working with Christine was exceptional considering the fact that my wife and I were really picky about the home we were buying together as our first home as a couple. Through all the ups and downs of our home search, Christine never gave up or slowed down. She really worked hard to make herself available whenever we found a home we really wanted to see and finally helped us put together an offer for the home we purchased in October 2015.
-- Victor Simpson
We had an excellent experience with Christine. We initially contacted Christine about the house we later bought. Without even meeting us, she contacted other real estate agents that were involved in selling our old house. When we needed to contact her, she would usually answer right away or at least get back to us in a short amount of time. She help expedite the closing of our house since we needed a 30 day closing. Everything went exceptionally smooth. It was our pleasure to have Christine as our agent.
Christine is a true professional. I've now had the pleasure of working with Christine on the purchase of two residential properties, and the sale of one. I was so blown-away with her level of care and expertise during our first transaction that I've used Christine exclusively for all of my subsequent real estate transactions. It really does make a difference when you work with a true real estate professional... and that difference is clear with Christine Holwell.
Christine listened to me and was responsive to what I wanted in a new home, from price, to location, to bedrooms, baths, fenced yard.
She was always available to me when I called, emailed, or texted, getting back to me quickly when she wasn't immediately available.
Christine is professional and a truly empathetic woman. I feel lucky I found her to be my realtor, especially as it was simply from an online listing.
I would recommend her as a professional realtor to anyone.
-- Christine Becker
Christine Holwell is a rare talent in the world if real estate. She is incredibly trustworthy, professional, and just gets the job done. Her integrity is of the highest level, as are her standards. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with her twice and cannot express enough how pleased we both were with the result each time. I always look to her for advice, because I know that I can count on getting accurate information and answers I need. I highly recommend securing Christine as a realtor, you will not be disappointed!
We are from Seattle and decided to go down and check out some Arizona properties over a long weekend. We emailed several local realtors and immediately Christine responded. We were thrilled over her quick response and after her figuring out what we were looking for and our budget she was on the phone scheduling showing's for us while we were in town. She is highly organized, very knowledgable about the valley, always a phone call or text away, and knows what areas are the best for your specific budget. If your looking for a realtor, I would highly recommend her for the job, you won't be disappointed. She found us our forever vacation home in two days.
I have worked with another successful agent in the past and had a good experience but Personality is another great attribute that Christine possesses in addition to those mentioned above that really sweetened my experience. It's great to have a knowledgeable realtor but connecting with your agent is an intangible key element that also helps to create a successful transaction. The one thing that really hooked me was that Christine was excellent at keeping us up to date with the homes that were available, sending us emails regularly with homes to view, months before we were actually even ready to seriously start looking. She didn't send me a portal to go to make me fill out the parameters of what I was looking for. I told here exactly what I was looking for, she created it and all I had to do was view the homes she sent via email. I appreciated that so much. She followed up regularly without hounding me and when it came time to actually go "hunting" she did her very best to accommodate our schedule. Once we found a home she promptly submitted our offer and secured a contract for us. Any questions I had along the way were quickly answered. I can't say enough about her and will be recommending her to everyone I know.
One word comes to mind when I think of Christine, AMAZING! Christines work ethic, availability and uncanny way of making impossible things happen. I often wonder if shes human. One time we viewed 7 homes all over the Valley after she sat in a conference all morning. We made it to the final house and she mentioned meeting her next client all the way in south Chandler (20 miles away). She said "Let me know your thoughts, and I talk to you later". And there goes Christine in her souped up mini cooper! Later that evening, I had requested comps on two of the viewed homes that day DONE! She has a way of making you feel like youre her only client and she will do everything in her power to satisfy your real estate needs. Ive been working with Christine for over 2 years and could not be happier with the customer service she has provided. Im pretty sure that Ive tested her patience more than anyone and somehow, she has keeps a smile on her face.
Christines motto is --BTW - I am NEVER too busy for your referrals! If you know of someone thinking about buying or selling please call me with their name & number - Ill be happy to follow-up and take good care of them!!
This is the TRUTH! Somehow she will make time and take good care of anyone you send her way.
Id also like to take moment to mention Christine's financial associates (Nova Home loans). Ive dealt with Matthew and his team. They're just as amazing and will do whatever it takes to make things go smoothly.
This review was 100% self-initiated and was NOT influenced in any way. Good Luck!
Christine was very professional and responsive in finding a tenant for our rental. She did a lot of market research to price our properly and gave us a detailed analysis that was very informational. She helped us get our home rented quickly with a good tenant. We were very satisfied with her expertise and advice throughout the process.
-- Jen Steineke
Christine is a consummate professional. She invested hours of her time researching homes for me and helping me narrow down my search. She was quick to book appointments and tirelessly showed me house after house. And she wrote not one but three offers for me - never losing her patience as the first two fell through. She was on top of the process every step of the way and was excellent at keeping me informed. I never once had to wonder where things stood or reach out to her first. She was always communicating - via text, voice or email. She worked hard for me. Finding and buying a home is stressful. She alleviated a lot of the stress and it made it a better experience for me.
-- Laura Wildes
In 2013 my husband and I were living in a condo with our son and I was about to give birth to our second son. We wanted to find a house close to where we were living and needed to find one fast. Nova Home Loans referred us to Christine Holwell and I couldnâ€™t ask for a better real estate agent. She called us the very same day she received our information and had a portal set up for us instantly with homes that met all of or requirements, needs and wants. We picked out our top choices and she took us to look at all of them that same weekend. Christine was very patient, polite and knowledgeable. With her help we found our dream home and the entire process was so smooth and easy. They say buying a home is very stressful but I dont feel like that was the case at all. I loved how she stayed in contact with us even after we bought our house and everything was done. Christine is very professional and friendly and I have recommended her to my family and friends who have now used her as well.
I've worked with Christine on at least 4 different homes. Each and every time she has done an outstanding job from start to finish. I've recommended her anytime somebody had an AZ real estate need.
I can not express my gratitude enough for Christine and how easy she made the process of selling our home! She absolutely made the process stress free. I am an anxious person and is always worrying about something, but she was there for me every step of the way answering all of my questions promptly. We needed to short sell our home, which gave me anxiety, but she knew the ins and outs of the prices. We had several offers the first day it was in the market and she had back ups just in case the people backed out. That proved to be important because those buyers backed out two weeks before we were to close. We had another buyer right away and closed within a month. She knew I was very busy with having six kids and running a day care, so she did everything possible to make the process easy. Whenever we go to sell again, we most definitely will use her again!
We contacted Christine about four or five years ago to let her know we were interested in looking into purchasing a house in that area. She has stayed in contact with us and we started looking more serious this year. She showed us several homes and walked us through the process. She helped us purchase a home in the Surprise area. She was and still is a great help. We know if we need any help or have questions we can call her. We feel we have a new friend through this purchase.
-- D. Hofmeier
Christine has been instrumental in finding us the perfect home! We were so impressed with her knowledge of the neighborhood we wanted to live in. We are sold on Christine and will never use another realtor!
We are going to purchase a condo in Fountain Hills. Unfortunately, we are delayed by government bureaucracy. Christine has been very effective in locating the type of property we want and extremely responsive to our questions and patient with our delay. I cannot comment on negotiation skills yet.
Christine helped me immensely .....I was a first time home buyer,I gave her certain guidelines ,such as price and locations and she never once showed me anything outside my requests. I also referred her to 2 other friends whom also got their homes and the same honest treatment with poor experiences with other realtors. Christine has also gotten my sister 2 homes and I would without exception recommend her to anyone. On top of that she sends me monthly reports about the real estate market and other helpful tips.
My experience with Christine was excellent. She always responded in a timely fashion and helped me purchase a beautiful home. She was very knowledgeable about the home buying process and was there every step of the way. Its amazing that even though we have been in our home for over three years she still keeps in contact to see how were doing and to let us know she is one call away for our real estate needs.
-- Nicole Moore
I was fortunate enough to be referred to Christine by a friend over ten years ago. Since then, not only has Christine helped me buy and sell two houses, she has also become a good friend. Christine is never too busy to assist, whether I have a question about the current market, my neighborhood, or any thing else relating to real estate. She also has a great network available and has been able to refer me to an expert if I ever have questions relating to mortgages, or other topics outside of the buying and selling realm. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking to buy or sell in the greater Phoenix area.
-- Elizabeth Julia
Excellent!! She does a great job with handling everything! By far, the best experience I've had with buying/selling homes. I would highly recommend Christine for any future real estate transactions .
Christine was fantastic! Even though we didn't have a lot to work with she was able to hook us up with a guy who could help us get a loan. She had lots of houses we could look at online as soon as they were on the market and she made us a priority, working with our busy schedule, to help us look through at least 20 houses before we found one we loved! It was a short sale, so it was a few months before everything went though. There were a few set-backs due to the VA home loan (they are picky about a lot of little things) but one fine day in September she handed us the keys to our home! She was always very professional and knowledgeable, ready to show us any house, despite the condition. My husband and I would highly recommend her to anybody looking to purchase a home, especially if you are first time home buyers like ourselves!
-- Megan Edwards
Hi I have know Christine for years. She help find the right home for me. She was always looking for me, letting me know what homes would fit me. She is upbeat and cheerful and fun to look for houses with. She guided me thru the real estate hassle, made it easy
-- Emil Slovak Phoenix Az 3/25/15
I first met Christine in 2007 while house hunting. She went above and beyond the average real estate agent as she meticulously helped me find the perfect home and then guided me through all of the paperwork and final details. I have since used her to sell my house, referred her to friends and highly recommend her for buying, selling or general questions regarding the Arizona housing market. Her expertise and professionalism are evident through her integrity and personal commitment to customer satisfaction. I highly recommend Christine Holwell as a professional real estate agent.
-- Stephanie Thomas
Christine Holwell was very knowledgeable and friendly. She listened to our needs, and was able to get us into a home that was perfect for us in no time! She always responded quickly, and even two years later, she still keeps in touch. She made our first home buying experience a pleasant and memorable one.
Christine was informative, organized, listened to our needs, and found us exactly what we wanted. She has also continued to be our real estate resource, and provides us with information on the market and current trends that affect us. I will definitely choose Christine again, when we are ready to move again.
-- Miss Chippy
True to the review I have provided, Christine is a wonderful real-estate professional to work with. As a real-estate investor during 2011 through 2013, we were very demanding of her time, attention and response from sellers. She always surpassed our expectations with attention to details, quick turn-around in responses and dedication to us during negotiations. For one of the homes, she even shelled out extra money from her pocket to keep the deal together.
She might be even better for home buyers because of her specialty to represent home buyers and sellers.
I couldn't be more happier. I and my real-estate investment partner will definitely work with her in future.
Christine was very quick to respond with any of our questions or concerns. She was aware of our wants and needs and made sure we got them. She worked hard for us. We have been happy in our home she found for us for 2+ years now.
-- C. Krainock
Christine is the most hard working real estate professionals I have ever met. She has excellent skills in locating properties that meet her buyers expectations and will find you the perfect house. She has great interpersonal skills and is a joy to work with. We don't think there is a better real estate agent in the entire Phoenix metro area
I highly recommend Christine Holwell. I have used her twice. She sold my Chandler house in record time and for more than asking!
I had just interviewed two other realtors and was still waiting for a 3rd realtorâ€™s appointment when I was referred to Christine Holwell by a friend. Christine promptly scheduled an appointment with me. Interestingly, all 3 realtors recommended the same selling price (within $900 or 0.3% difference). I hired her in October 2013, immediately after interviewing her. I could tell right away that Christine was honest, hard working, efficient and knew her stuff. My husband had just passed away after a lengthy illness and I was overwhelmed making decisions. Thankfully Christine advised me about what needed to be fixed up prior to listing, how the selling process would work, and even what to do about my large dog during showings. I followed her advice and my house had multiple offers within days of her listing my house. I really believe the reason I got so much interest was the incredibly beautiful professional pictures that Christine arranged to be taken--my house never looked so good! And of course, her marketing efforts paid off to. Christine then negotiated the various offers and continued to work deal as the various small things cropped up prior to closing, including a surprising roof repair that was needed as a result of the home inspection. I was so glad Christine was there to help me deal with all the home sale issues at this stressful time in my life.
I ended up moving out of state for a year, but came back to Phoenix for a vacation in Oct 2014. Once back down here for a few weeks, I decided to stay as a snowbird. I was looking for a place to rent pretty and considering much anywhere in the entire Phoenix Valley. At that time there was a lot of completion for rental places â€“ since it was late in the snowbird season. I ended up calling Christine, and again she helped me out. She found me a perfect rental in Sun City. There was a lot of interest in the rental that I wanted, and based on what the rental listing agent told me â€“ it was Christine who persuaded the rental agent to rent to me. So I can say for a fact, Christine is fabulous realtor whether you are on the buying or selling side of the transaction.
We were considering selling our current residence and purchasing a new home. Christine put together an incredibly detailed analysis of our home and the homes in the surrounding area. Instead of simply supplying the basic comps data, we were provided a complete analysis of home values in the area based on several differentiating factors, including single vs multi-level $/sq ft, age of home, style, lot size, total sq footage, upgrades, school districts, etc. It was then easy to arrive at the value of our home vs what we would have to spend to purchase what we had in mind. At the end of the day, we decided not to sell based on her analysis. Thank-you Christine for helping us avoid a costly mistake.
She helped us purchase our first home the experience was real easy as she made everything happen. Always on time punctual on top of things I'd definitely would use her again as she is one of the best Realtor!!! Keep up the good work Christine Holwell
VERY trustworthy! She understood what I wanted in a house by understanding what a house meant to me and why. She took the time to listen to ascertain that information. She cared as much as I did that I got the house I wanted. I have never bought a house before by myself and she walked me through the process and I trusted her explicitly! Can not recommend anyone as much I do her.
We have been using Christine to look for a horse property and she has been excellent. She does a great job of pointing out pros and cons so we can make an educated choice!
I have bought or sold many houses, including three in the last year. Christine is one of the best real estate agents I have worked with. She is thorough, organized, knowledgeable and very responsive. She does everything she promises to do. She assisted me in finding reputable local contractors to perform needed repair work. I would gladly work with her again on another real estate transaction.
