What Christina's Clients Are Saying
"Christina represented my wife and me in the sale of our house in Bellevue and the purchase of our new home in Queen Anne. Her knowledge of both the market and the process was a huge help to us. Christina is both a true professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. We were very fortunate to work with her."
-Jane and Chuck Riley, Queen Anne
"Christina made our purchase possible. Her encouragement, market knowledge and dedication to making a deal happen helped us close on a fantastic home which met all of our needs and our wants.
At the start of the process, she directed us to the steps that we needed to take to meet our time goals. While looking, she was available when we needed her and skillfully identified pros and cons of each property. When we made an offer, her guidance was crucial to our success. While under contract, she made sure that we closed in a reasonable time.
On top of all that, she is a wonderful person with whom to spend time. Highly recommended!"
-Tripp and Sara Ritter, Ballard
"We feel so fortunate to have met Christina when we did. We moved to Seattle from Washington DC and were exploring different neighborhoods and going to lots of open houses. We found a house we loved on a Saturday afternoon. The market was crazy and we knew that the house would sell within a matter of days. Without a realtor or pre-approval for a mortgage we were referred to Christina and called her that Saturday, met on Sunday, had bought a house by Wednesday and had a new friend for life. She is wonderful. Totally listens to you and responds very quickly. She helps take the stress out of house hunting and makes it fun."
-Julie McCord and Chad Brandt, Queen Anne
"Christina did a fantastic job guiding me through buying my condo. She is extremely thorough and easy to work with. I had an unique buying situation with multiple family members (not to mention they are attorneys) and Christina handled it extremely well. I highly recommend her."
-Cristine DeMaio, Queen Anne
"Christina helped us navigate a competitive real estate market in Spring 2013. Christina is the best and we're lucky she helped us in our Seattle home search.
We started looking in late 2012 for a home in Seattle. From start to finish, Christina was able to guide us and provide her knowledge about the neigborhood, potential issues, and providing her expert opinion with our concerns. With her experience, I truly feel we got the house we wanted based on how Christina created our offer and made it stand out from the others. We also had a number of follow up items after offer acceptance and she handled all of them. I have no hesitation in referring Christina and if we ever wanted to list our home, she would be the first one we'd call!"
-Kim and Craig Muska, Queen Anne
"Christina helped us sell our home in Seattle. She's a consummate professional who takes her business seriously. Her professional guidance helped us achieve great results in a timely manner. I'd welcome the opportunity to work with Christina again in the future."
-Patrick & Jennifer Sullivan, Queen Anne
"Christina helped us sell our Bigelow home on Queen Anne both exceptionally quickly and at a price that exceeded our expectations. Christina not only provided exceptional advice and an extraordinary outcome, she offered unrelenting attention to detail in making sure the home was ready and staged beautifully. She was patient, communicated the costs and taxes incredibly clearly and established a strategy for negotiation which was successful. The results speak for themselves - 5 days on the market, 3 qualified offers and a selling price ten per cent above what we were asking. We had previously bought through Christina 7 years before and trusted her to handle our listing. We'd highly recommend her for either buying or selling. She has high integrity, is personable and gets great results for her clients. This was the first time selling a home that I felt happy with the costs we paid to a real estate broker and that every cent was worthwhile and earned. "
-Steven & Mary Jane Brain, Queen Anne
"Christina found us our first home in Seattle in the midst of a very competitive real estate market and helped us navigate the multiple offer process smoothly and successfully. Christina helped make the process a stress free experience by bringing great real estate expertise, composure and expansive Seattle neighborhood knowledge to the table. Her positive reputation proceeded her in every interaction that we had with other brokers and her thorough & responsive communication style put us at ease. We would highly recommend her for buying or selling -- will recommend her to all of our friends & family and plan to use her again in the future."
-Laura & Dan Hatch, North Seattle
"We are writing this letter as a follow up to the sale of our beloved home by Christina Economou from Windermere's Lakeview Office. After a somewhat exhaustive search, we chose Christina to represent us, and our home, as we prepared to relocate to the east coast. We couldn't have been happier with our decision. From the beginning, Christina was professional, knowledgeable, informative, thorough, no nonsense and always warm and kind. She was sensitive to the love we had for our home while looking at it with an eye attuned to the demands of a market that could be unforgiving. As such, she pinpointed and suggested small improvements that greatly enhanced the 'showability' of our home and also knew where to draw the line. As soon as we signed her on, she hit the ground running-laying out a timeline that was manageable, scheduling contractors and solidifying each of our respective 'To Do' lists. Her communication was excellent and her follow-through, impeccable. She inspired us to work harder than we thought we could which resulted in a house that showed beautifully and sold in four days with competing and generous offers. When there was a blip with the original offer (and ultimate buyer), Christina wasted no time in contacting the others who had made offers so they could proceed with our home if necessary; proving to us that she is savvy and can handle the unforeseen. As it happened, she was able to usher the first offer through to a clean bill of sale within the time frame we required and with all parties rejoicing in the outcome. We are so grateful to have made the decision to work with Christina and would happily recommend her services to anyone who intends to sell their home. Our only regret is that she doesn't work in Maryland."
-Ron & Alison Maynard, Ravenna
"Christina did a fantastic job guiding us through buying our new house & selling our old one. She's honest, easy and fun to work with. She gave us great feedback on purchasing our home, what items were critical to address (& which ones weren't) with our old home, listened to our needs and we were able to sell our home quickly!"
-Vasantha & Scott Kostojohn, Queen Anne
"Thank you so much for all your help in getting this done (selling my home) it went very smoothly. If I have the opportunity to refer you some business, and I hope I do, I will send it your way. Let's keep in touch. Thank you very much."
-Mickey Portnoy, Queen Anne
"My husband and I moved from NYC to Seattle amid the red-hot housing market. We knew that eventually we wanted to buy a home, but felt out-priced at the time. And coming from Manhattan , we were unsure of what to buy: a single-family home, condo, or town house. For two-plus years, Winderemere Managing Broker Christina Economou (Lakeview Office) led our search. She showed us upwards of 100 homes. Her vast knowledge of the local real estate market, her patience, and her heartfelt desire to serve her clients can't be beat. She is thorough, sincere, kind and professional. Beyond that, she has a passion for her work, and she thoroughly appreciates the process. What's more, her integrity speaks volumes. Thanks to Christina, we purchased a beautiful new-construction town home on Queen Anne; we couldn't be happier. We would use Christina again in a heart-beat. Undeniably, Christina is at the top of her game and continues to raise the bar for others in her profession."
-George & Elizabeth Hatziantoniou, Queen Anne
"In the past 7 years we have worked with Christina to buy and sell 2 homes (4 transactions). Christina was very informative and encouraging as we purchased our first home, but what I really think was the most valuable in her work with us was her way of presenting the realities (her market analysis findings) and giving us the "tough love" we needed when selling our homes (e.g. clearing out the clutter before we put our house on the market). Our most recent venture of selling our home was very stressful, and due to the market, turned into a short sale because we relocated out of state. All throughout the process Christina was right there with us when many other agents may have abandoned us due to the long nature of the process. After 7 long months on the market we are happy to say we have sold our house with many thanks to Christina's efforts. Christina has the ideal skills of an agent: detail oriented, resourceful, willing to learn (short sale process) and prompt responses to questions. I would recommend Christina to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."
-Doug & Andrea Boulanger Lowe, Olympic Hills
"If you are ever interested in selling your house, I can't say enough good things about my Realtor/Managing Broker, Christina Economou from Windermere. She was incredible in making things happen quickly and seamlessly, and was instrumental at calming me down through this stressful process!! I would highly recommend her to any of you, or your friends."
-Gary Rashkov, Green Lake
"With patience and dedication, Christina spent months with us as we looked at over 30 houses. She listened to what we wanted in our hearts, and strove to find this for us. As first time buyers, we were very naive in terms of how to buy a house. Christina navigated us through the process and took the time to explain things to us that we didn't understand. She looked out for us the entire time. Aside from all of the above, she is as sweet and kindhearted as she is professional. I enjoyed the entire process and would recommend Christina to ANYONE. I feel so lucky to have had her as a realtor. I would not want to work with anyone else. Additionally, my husband and I are now the proud owners of our first home, and we couldn't be happier. I tell my husband everyday when I wake up that this is my dream home."
-Jacob & Kate Kassab, Queen Anne
"Christina has my utmost confidence and highest recommendation. When we first began working with Christina, she conducted an insightful and probing analysis into our wants and needs. Using that information, and her vast knowledge of the Seattle-area real estate market, she was able to direct us to the neighborhoods that were the best fit. She then worked tirelessly to give us up-to-the minute information on new listings and helped us to spot hidden gems. With her help, we were able to swoop in and capture the home of our dreams at a very reasonable price. She provided extremely valuable guidance and counsel at each step, and we could not be happier."
-Theo & Kim Angelis, Blue Ridge
"Christina was an excellent listing agent. She marketed my home well, priced it on target and had it sold within three days of listing it. I really believe she is one of the best real estate agents in Seattle."
Ray Stephenson, Green Lake
"We moved to Seattle in 2005 with no knowledge of the local market and never having bought a house in the US. Christina gave us a great introduction to the different Seattle neighborhoods, gave us a thoughtful selection of different houses to view in our chosen neighborhood and gave us helpful advice in the selection of our property. She also gave us great guidance understanding the US home buying process, compared with the UK system we were used to. The real testament though is that while we went through the selection and purchasing process quickly, 5 years on we're still in the same property and delighted with the purchase we made."
-Mary Jane & Steve Brain, Queen Anne
"Christina guided me through the purchase of my first home. She was endlessly patient, knowledgeable and kind. She listened to what I wanted and kept an eye out for what I was looking for. It took us about a year to find what I was looking for at that time in the market, and she persisted. I always trusted that she had my best interests at heart, she did a wonderful job guiding me through the offer process, extending the offer and closing the deal quickly, efficiently and for the price we were hoping for. She was a great partner and guide to me, was straightforward and open with me, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an incredibly knowledgeable and trustworthy agent, especially one with a great love for the Seattle area."
-Erin Elsasser, Wallingford
"Christina worked with us for over a year to find the right house. She showed us over 75 homes. We were moving from out of town, when we came in on weekends she would forego her own plans to assist us in our search. She continually requested feedback so that she could narrow the search on based on what parameters were important to us and soon could look at houses without us there, knowing our tastes and preferences. She is, quite simply, the best realtor we have ever worked with."
-Beth & Bruce Avolio, Richmond Beach
"My wife and I hired Christina to be our listing agent when we were selling our Townhouse in a down real estate market. She had an eye for defining exactly what needed to be done to prepare our house for sale so that we'd attract buyers & get a good price. Because of her recommendations we sold quickly and for a reasonable price."
-Jessica & Jeremy Przasnyski, North Seattle
"Christina made our dream of home ownership come true. She was very gracious, personable and attentive. She quickly grasped what was most important to us and helped guide us toward the perfect home. We are so appreciative of her efforts."
-Chris Marx, North Seattle
"We were in Seattle for the weekend and needed to find a home before the end of it. Christina spent three full days with us and was kind and helpful which made a very stressful situation much easier. I don't know what we would have done without her. She is truly the best."
-Todd & Dana Simons, West Seattle
"Christina was a fantastic advocate for us and we are so happy we had the opportunity to work with her. She puts in 110% for her clients, we definitely recommend her, and would gladly work with her again."
-Danielle & Jesse Langdon, Richmond Beach
