Working in real estate is about making dreams come true. You deserve a Realtor dedicated to helping nurture your dreams and your investment. Together with my network of experts, I am committed to making this a positive and successful process by providing world-class service every step of the way.

My real estate experience includes residential, office space, light industrial/flex space, renting & leasing, and international relocation (specializing in moves to and from Mexico). I am also fluent in Spanish.

I have lived in Washington, DC; Boston, MA; Greenville, SC; Charlotte, NC; Miami, FL; Houston, TX, and Fort Mill/Tega Cay, SC, which has been my home for almost 20 years.

Prior to becoming a Realtor, I ran a consulting firm with a specialty in sales channel development in foreign markets. Before that I ran a wax specialties business with my husband serving customers in over 40 countries, among them Brazil, Germany, Mexico, China, Argentina, and South Africa, while representing a wide variety of industries such as oil refining, adhesives, investment casting, chewing gum, tires, and, of course, candles.

My real estate industry career began in 1997 working as an Online Sales Manager/Product Manager with in Charlotte, North Carolina, where I was responsible for launching several websites and products with a concentration in real estate. Later I would join the real estate sales team at The Charlotte Observer.

"Christine was our realtor to purchase our current home. She went above and beyond to assist us to purchase a great house in a very short period of time. Due to the COVID and us living out of state, we heavily relied on her expertise to find the right house. She traveled multiple states, neighborhoods and showcased many houses until we find the right one. What we liked a lot about her was how much she was invested into the process. She was looking for a house as if she was looking for herself. She pointed out many things during the virtual tours that we wouldn’t otherwise realized. We never felt rushed. In the end not only did we have a trustable professional realtor but also a neighbor and a friend. We are grateful for all her services and recommend her without any hesitation. "

"After knowing Christine for over 25 years, I can attest to the fact that she has the intellect, drive, and integrity to make home buying and selling happen!"

"I’ve known Christine for years. She’s smart, industry savvy, and honest. You can’t go wrong working with her."

"In the wake of an economy ravaged by COVID, personal challenges related to a divorce and the costs and stresses associated with such a life altering event, and a market seeming flipped to favor sellers over buyers, Christine did in a few weeks what others would have been unable or unwilling to do if given months. She found me a home, helped me with finding a broker when mine couldn’t be reached (COVID) and walked me personally through the closing loan documents in my car (COVID). Beyond that she went with me to do the walk through and, months after the deal was complete, thought enough about me to bring me a pie on Thanksgiving. She also gave me a personal thank you gift customary for a broker however for me, it is something I will truly cherish the rest of my life. She is not just a mere Real Estate Agent, she is someone who will look and look until she finds the house you want that checks the boxes you requested. In my view, she is a homemaker. Please use her as an agent."
