Welcome to the Sonoma Valley!
Sonoma Valley is truly remarkable. With its world-class wineries, historic downtown, and spectacular weather, it’s easy to see why so many people fall in love with the area. And when you’re ready to move, you need an experienced agent by your side. Serving clients in the Sonoma Valley area, Christine Benson has over 37 years of industry experience and is one of the region’s leading real estate experts.
Originally from Oakland, Christine has been a longtime resident of the Sonoma Valley community, where she has worked and raised her family for many years. Christine’s real estate journey began in 1985 at the age of 22. After graduating from college, she wanted to pursue a career in real estate management. Today, Christine is one of the area’s leading agents and the unofficial ambassador of Sonoma Valley. As a premier agent, Christine has built her professional reputation on the relationships she has formed with her clients. Whether she’s working with buyers or sellers, she provides all her clients with five-star customer service. As a result of her hard work, Christine has built a sustainable business based on word of mouth, whether it’s through referrals or repeat clients. She also received many industry awards and recognitions. She consistently ranks in the Top 5-8% of all Coldwell Banker agents worldwide and was recently honored with the International President’s Circle Award. Christine is a Certified Seniors Real Estate Specialist and Certified Real Estate Investment Advisor.
When working with her clients, Christine leads by establishing relationships with her clients. From the first meeting, Christine begins by determining her clients’ main priorities, whether it’s to find a vacation property, their forever home, or to sell their property to start the next stage of their lives. By forming bonds with her clients, she provides them with the support they need through every step of the process. For Christine, there is no better feeling than helping her clients follow their dreams of living the Sonoma Valley lifestyle.
Along with her role as a top-tier real estate agent, Christine is a proud advocate for the Sonoma Valley Community. She is part of the Impact 100 local woman's group, with an aim for community outreach and improvement. She is also the proud mother of three adult children.

We, lawyer and family, knew the reverse mortgage would be due soon after the ill owner's death and I recommended Christine to the family. They took to her right away and loved her enthusiasm and warmth, and information she was able to provide. When the reverse mortgage company wrote threatening letters after the owners death we were able to quiet them with Christine's listing, schedule, and early open ho...
We originally met Christine at an open house. Although that house was not what we were looking for, Christine was. Next we came up with a list of homes that we wanted to see and Christine added a couple more, we toured them together so Christine could see what we liked and disliked about each, and at the end of the day, she said "I know what you are looking for and I will find it for you". And she did. S...
