When I first thought to purchase a home, the only point of reference I had was a couple of Home Network shows. I reached out to several agents but didn't get any personal service, they just wanted to set up a daily email of listings and to forget about me. Christy didn't talk down to us because we're young and was willing to work with the fact that we ourselves weren't sure what we wanted. Christy is patient, she's real, she works hard, and she has a husband who is also an agent and can chime in with another opinion. Most importantly, she negotiated an awesome price - the appraisal came in $10,000 above our accepted offer! Heather

I can't say enough positive things about working with Christy. From start to finish, she was communicative and professional - we knew that we were in very capable hands! We ended up in a multiple offer situation and Christy very skillfully guided us through the process. She provided us with information about comparable properties in the neighborhood and a realistic assessment of what we were up against. We were thrilled to have our offer accepted and are so happy with our new home. Thank you Team Sears!
