The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
"Christine was a consummate professional helping my family deal with the sale of 50% ownership of my father's estate. Christine understood all of our needs, requests and came through with flying colors in all aspects of our dealings and with the sale of the property. I was very impressed with her level of communication and I apreciated all of the updates that were provided along the course. I would not hesitate to use Christine again in the purchase or sale of any other properties."

"Christine Tobias is the best realtor we have ever utilized the services of, and believe me when I say we have used several agencies over the years and several realtors. We would not hesitate to recommend Christine as the most consciencious, hard-working, personable and knowledgeable realtor you could wish for. Don't be fooled by her youthful countenance! She is a formidable worker and has a strong work ethic that really can't be taught -- it's just part of who Christine is.
It's been a geat pleasure to work with her and to have her market and sell our condo. We are almost sorry the experience is coming to an end :) Thanks for everything, Christine. "

"My husband and I are new in Canada, almost a year ago when we were thinking of buying a home. We knew nothing about the home buying process in Canada so I went online to try and find information.
Roselyn and Toby, North Vancouver (Purchase)
"She came well prepared for our first meeting. She quickly showed that she is thoroughly professional but equally sensitive to human needs.
We were impressed with her contacts and sales activities going beyond what we precieve to be normal realtor efforts.
A great spirit!
Christine handled everything for us.
Christine is an all around excellent realtor!"

"Christine is a hard worker and we cannot stress how invaluable she was in selling our home! Christine listened to our concerns, is caring, passionate and knows how to get the job done. My husband and I would highly recommend Christine and plan to keep her in mind when we are ready to sell in the future.
Thank you for all your help and guidance Christine! We could not have been as successful as we were without you!"
Andrea and Baron, Surrey (Sale)
"We presented Christine with the challenging task of selling our home quickly as we had already found and purchased the perfect house for us which Christine also assisted with purchasing. We also had our wedding coming up so we did not want to be moving during our wedding. She had the tough task of dealing with a few other listings that went up at the same time as ours. Christine immediately took charge and had professional photos taken and listed our place. She hosted 3 open houses and had a number of showings. Within 2 months she had a buyer and our place was the only one that was sold out of the other units. She always had our best interest in heart. She was extremely patient, professional and very well organized. We could not be happier and highly recommend Christine."
Azadeh & Brad, Richmond (Sale & Purchase)
"Christine was an amazing gift in our search for a new home. After ten years in our much loved family home we were moving for all the right reasons but had many mixed feelings and so were unclear about exactly what we wanted. I gave Christine a wish list which she adhered to flawlessly finding many homes that hit the target.
However, we kept changing our minds and wishes as we began to understand the marketplace. I think we would have stopped looking (as we had done twice previously) had Christine not had remained so positive, flexible, willing and accommodating. Every time we (I ) came up with " hey I saw this on MLS what do you think?" Christine did her due diligence and checked out the property even though it was not what we had thought we wanted originally. When we were ready to make an offer, she went to city hall and spoke with planners, researched bylaws and zoning all to answer the "what if" questions . She dug up community planning documents, orders in council and the history of the property we were making an offer on. All of this she did with a smile and a " no problem" attitude.
Through no-one's fault the negotiations with the sellers were difficult and Christine again remained positive and reassuring even when the deal fell through the first time she was pragmatic and matter of fact that maybe it was not meant to be. But her approach won out in the end when the sellers opened up negotiations again.
All of Christine's hard work made our decision making easier and we felt confident in making a move into a $1.23m home in a new City 17 miles away. Christine is diligent and honest. She has no hidden agenda she truly wants to help you to find the home of your dreams and she works hard for that from morning to night. Thank you Christine this was a monumental decision for us and we felt supported all the way along. We love our new home and hey its only a 20 minute commute to work in the morning!"

"My wife and I were shopping around for Townhouses. With Christine's help, we were able to locate on in the Surrey Fleetwood area. As there were multiple offers for that property, Christine used her awesome people skills to persuade the seller to accept our offer which was NOT even the highest bid.
Thank you Christine."

"Christine is an awesome realtor to work with. We had hired her to sell our condo. She was polite, cooperative, understanding and very helpful and very professional. The sale of our place went very smoothly and took less time than we expected. Christine went above and beyond our expectations. She kept us updated with every showing of the condo that took place and what she thought about the reactions of the potential buyers. We did not live in our condo so it was nice to know what was going on. If there was an issue that needed to be resolved she worked with us to resolve it. She explained the process therefore I knew exactly what was to be expected. She knew we both worked and she worked around our schedule for signing papers and having meetings. I liked the fact that I was comfortable with her and she was not pushy and the fact that she always seemed like she had time to listen to us."
Michelle and Rik
"I've known Christine for many years now. She's very dedicated to her profession. She helped me with purchasing my new townhouse and took the time to help me look at several places until I found the 'right one'.
Big thank you to Christine for your great work."
