Wanting to express in a review, just how pleased we have been with Christine as our realtor, we read the review written by Mildred Chang who has already stated everything that we wished to say. Always the professional, Christine worked with us for many months, allowing us the time we needed to ’step back’ and re-assess. Specifically, there were occasions when properties we liked were not what they seemed and thanks to Christine’s research and ethics, we were cautioned and saved from a possible bad move. Christine’s relaxed and friendly manner was always present and she is, in our opinion, a rare, true ‘gem’ in the real estate world. We highly recommend her and will definitely stay in touch should we ever need her services in the future.

Christine genuinely cares about her clients and puts in the time to get it right. She has helped us buy two homes and sell one. Wonderful service and sound advice.
We were looking for an agent who would not rush us into buying a less than ideal property in an unfamiliar market, and as a buyer’s agent, Christine exceeded our expectations with her patience and work ethics. She always looked out for our interests, cautioning us when she saw pitfalls in several properties, even though it meant she would have to work harder to find better alternatives. She is a true professional who provides service with integrity.
Christine’s attention to detail, market knowledge, and her ability to understand my families needs for our new home made our search smooth and painless. We had a clear vision of what we wanted; however, articulating that into words can sometimes be difficult. Christine actively listened and understood very quickly which resulted in a targeted search of available properties. Purchasing into a strata for the first time raised many questions, and Christine clarified and even anticipated where explanation would be required. I highly recommend her, and will not hesitate in contacting her for my future sale and purchase.
“It was a pleasure working with Christine Makasoff. From the beginning of the process it was easy. I needed to sell my Townhouse as my family needed more space and we were looking to buy a single family home. Christine put in a ton of work to not only help us secure the house that we wanted but also sell my Townhouse. I would recommend Christine if you are looking for an honest and hard working realtor to help you with your realtor needs.”
Thank you for your hard work and efforts on our behalf in closing the sale on our home in Surrey. We were very impressed by your diligence in looking after the many items that come with closing a real estate sale. The concerns and requests of the new owner, lawyers were met very quickly, and we felt very comfortable that you were on hand for all inspections including the final clean up.
Laurel & Orland Kurtenbach, good friends moving out of town.
“Christine, I want to thank you so very much for your expertise in real estate. You found a buyer for the property plus you gave me friendship. It wasn’t easy to manage my aunt’s affairs and I only knew a couple of people in B.C., since I am from New Brunswick. Christine, you were there for me all the way. If anyone wants a wonderful realtor, I think you are the best. Thank you for everything.”
Jeannette from New Brunswick, selling the home of her aunt’s estate.
“Christine is one of the best. She was always there for us when we needed to see a listing or even discuss a property. She provided us with expert advice on every property we visited. She was very patient with me during and after pregnancy and basically became part of our family. We will forever be grateful to Christine for helping us find our new home. I will recommend Christine to all my family and friends. Thank you Christine!!!!!”
Leilani, Doreen and James, townhouse purchasers.
“Working with Christine was fabulous, she provided us with all the relevant information to help us make decisions that helped us sell our home quickly. We worked together to establish a plan for open houses and viewings which made the process work perfectly with our schedules. Selling your home is stressful enough, but Christine made it an easy and comfortable process.”
Ernie and Kerrie K.
“My experience with Christine was awesome! She showed us a ton of houses during the week and more on the weekends even with our compressed schedules and there was always multiple houses to look, not just one. She was very quick to reply to my emails and set up showings. If it wasn’t for Christine, I don’t know if we would have gotten our house we’re in now, which I love by the way.
As for selling our house, we wanted out asap and Christine priced our house to sell quickly in just a couple weeks. The photos of our house were unreal, I didn’t even recognize that it was ours. There was a huge amount of advertising and our property had its own website.
Once everything was all said and done I would recommend Christine to any of my family and friends in a second. Thanks for doing such an amazing job with the sale and purchase of our houses Christine, your the best!”
Nick Walker, moving from a townhouse to a detached home.
“Christine was the best real estate agent that I have ever worked with. I’m going to recommend her to everyone I know.”
Jody Gilbert, retired.
“Christine brought two very important qualities to my successful purchase: realism, and thoughtfulness. She gave me a clear sense of how I should expect negotiations to proceed, and gave me practical guidance for what the seller was likely to accept (and did!). My deal completed successfully on time, on budget, and with no last minute surprises. Very happy.”
Nathan Hapke, first-time home buyer.
“Christine has a low key approach and informal style, and that’s quite welcoming. She listened and was willing to incorporate my input into the overall product. Best of luck.”
Michael Neveu, veteran real estate trader.
“Christine, you have been so efficient and you stayed on top of everything for us. We had no experience in foreclosure properties but you guided us all the way through professionally and diligently. We really appreciate all your efforts to make our house purchase smooth. If anyone is looking for a realtor, we will recommend you. Thank you!!”
