Christine Montes

Realtor/Broker SC/NC

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 joining Coldwell Banker, 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.
