I am always complaining this is a “C” minus world we live in, well as far as I am concerned my recent experience with Christie Springer and Joan Meyer of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate was amazing, an “A plus” pair with the handling of the sale of our home recently. They were outstanding in handling “details” in all aspects of this transaction, from the beginning of their presentation to the final closing. They were on top of each aspect of this sale and their guidance was comforting. Their prompt attention in assisting us with the cleaning and fixing up of our home to get it ready for sale was outstanding, guiding us to the right people to do the repairs and staging. As a result, we received 11 offers and at overwhelming prices. They produced a flyer that was executed perfectly with excellent text and photographs as well. I can go on and on praising these two realtors. I couldn’t be happier in selecting them.

Christie is a rockstar in the realtor world! My partner and I worked with Christie to buy our first condo/TIC in the Soma/Mission area. We had ZERO idea what we were doing. Christie immediately peaked our interest as a realtor when she offered great advice when we didn¿t even know where to begin to seek advice. She is patient but unlike most realtors she will not drag the process along with false expectations of the San Francisco real estate market (which is a unique market). My partner and I closed on our second offer (I’ve now learned this is really quick–most people put in several offers). It was partially situation/luck but mostly Christie’s awesome realtor skills. We also love Christie’s kindness, she is an awesome person in general. We will definitely use Christie for all our home-buying needs in the future. Whether you our buying your first condo or your fifth penthouse, I would recommend Christie if you want a great experience!

Christie Springer and Joan Meyer were our real estate agents in the sale of a three flat building in San Francisco. They interviewed us carefully and considerately to determine what our goals were for the sale of the building and to learn about and answer any questions or concerns that we had. Since the flats were fully occupied, Christie and Joan interacted with our tenants frequently and always in a professional manner. When our first accepted bid fell through, they immediately reassessed our situation, arranged to show the property the next day, and within 48 hours we had new offers. The subsequent accepted offer was for an even more profitable price than the previous one. During the complicated negotiations, they went beyond the usual responsibilities of an agent and handled many small matters with our approval to spare us time and trouble. We live over 70 miles from San Francisco and personal concerns made traveling to the city especially onerous. Throughout the transaction, we always felt that Christie and Joan had our best interests at heart and that they were working for us with extreme diligence and integrity. Never once did we feel confused or forgotten. Christie and Joan are professionals with the highest standards who possess human warmth and consideration as well as great intelligence and expertise. We remain entirely and thoroughly satisfied with their work for us, and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

Christie is a fantastic realtor, she was determined and positive and drew on her many skills to locate and secure our perfect home in a very tight market. I have the highest regard for her professionalism and skills and I unreservedly recommend her.

I will only buy or sell a home with Christie. She was so patient and professional throughout the entire process. The icing on the cake…we have a great friend in SF…thanks Christie!

Christie was a wonder: anticipating our questions brilliantly and patiently answering the same questions for the hundredth time. Christie really looked after us, and the end of the story was as happy as can be!

Both Arie and I believe Christie was the best real estate agent either of us had ever had! He had bought homes in Texas, Minnesota and Missouri, and I had 2 homes in Missouri. We appreciated her attention to detail, as well as her proactive communications with our lender from UCSF…who was no simple or easy person to deal with, but she kept on top of everything!

Christie was recommended to us by a colleague (she helped my colleague buy a condo) as an honest, hardworking, knowledgeable and successful agent. She did prove to be all those things. Thanks to her help with the sticky and SUPER competitive process of buying a home in the SF Bay Area, we were able to get a lovely 3 BR/1.5 Bath home in Pacifica, CA. And we were in a time crunch too with the approaching due date of our second child. Christie was patient with us as we learned the system and its challenges. She was never pushy and was honest about how to negotiate things that could be negotiated. I appreciated all the time she took to talk to each seller¿s agent in person, which is a special touch that not all agents give. I would recommend Christie to others!
Christie anticipated my every need. I could not have asked for anyone better. She was very sensitive to and realistic regarding financial constraints and yet, was not willing to settle for anything that did not suit me. I had complete trust in Christie, both because she is a person of integrity and because she knew and respected my taste and priorities.

Christie was an excellent agent and we very fortunate to have worked with her. We would definitely recommend Christie to our friends and family.

Christie really listens to what you want and need and keeps you on the path to finding those things. REALLY. The San Francisco market is so crazy, it is easy to talk yourself out of the things you want because they seem impossible to attain. Her patience is infinite and she always had a cool head. The real proof was that when we TRULY found the house we wanted she was key in helping us making an offer that put us into contract. I have referred her to friends who have also been equally happy in the sale and purchase of homes. I would not hesitate to work with her again. Thanks Christie!
Erin N., San Francisco
Christie was extremely proactive and responsive to what I was looking for. She¿s very quick to narrow down exactly what the client needs so she can help you and is hard working. She never made me feel like I was in the wrong for turning down homes that I didn’t like and was very supportive throughout the entire process. What¿s more, she was honest and didn’t try to sell me on something that she knew wasn’t right for me. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot to learn. Christie was there for me and walked me through the entire process patiently. I will and already have recommended Christie to anyone out there looking for a home. She genuinely cares about her clients and knows her stuff. What’s more, she’s a great person to know!
Buyer, San Francisco
Thank you so very, very much for all your help, it has been a MARATHON and we couldn’t have done it without you! It was a great experience, and I’m incredibly happy with how things have turned out. We’ll have to get together for a glass of wine on the deck soon!

Christie helped us purchase and sell a condo in downtown San Francisco, CA. She found us the perfect unit and was very knowledgeable in the geographical area. She handled both the purchase and sale in a very professional manner. She was a tough negotiator and listened to our concerns throughout the entire process. We would absolutely recommend her. It was a pleasurable experience having her as our agent on both ends of a sale.
Paula M., Seattle
Christie helped us create a short list of the things we most wanted in a house in San Francisco. Now, after a thorough search and a lot of insight and patience from Christie we got everything we wanted and more. If you want a way through the chaos of house hunting you could find no better guide than Christie. She was there with us all the way to the closing and we needed her experience every step of the way. Thanks, Christie!
