What Clients Are Saying

I wanted to express our sincere appreciation to Christine Benson for helping us make a challenging transition from a four acre home in the Sierra Foothills to our wonderful new home in Temelec.  Christine brought an excellent knowledge of local real estate values and locations to help us find a new match for retirement living in the midst of everything wonderful Sonoma has to offer.  However, the real differentiator in this case is that Christine brings additional attributes not always found in real estate transactions.  She is a fearless negotiator, a realist when it comes to pricing and property inspection issues, and brings a cadre of competent inspectors, plumbers, and roofers to the table as needed.  In the end, Christine has become a dear "friend" as well as our competent realtor and our extended local family has also embraced her for her good will and enthusiastic support.  


Christine, is the best! You just can’t get anyone better to take care of every aspect from start to finish and beyond!  Our retirement dream home has been realized, thanks to you.  You worked your little tail off, showing us homes, and tending to every little detail to make everything go smoothly.  Our new home feels so natural to us, and we feel very fortunate to call you our friend.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We wouldn’t have realized our dream without you. 

Sara & Pete L.

Christine's genuine love for what she does, combined with her deep knowledge, attention to details, and experience were key contributors to the quick sale of my home. I would partner with her again in a heartbeat.

Marguerite & Kieth L.

Christine was an excellent broker in every respect. She has a thorough understanding of the Sonoma real estate market. Although many brokers may also have that, Christine distinguishes herself by her patience . We ended up looking for the right house over a 2 year period. She did not try influence us as we went through highs And lows reviewing properties . Christine allowed us to take our time until the right house finally showed up. Her guidance in the bidding process was invaluable.

Jeanie & Jerry S.

Christine was  instrumental in  helping me place my home on the market. From the beginning, she assisted me in hiring the needed services required in preparing my home for market. Her consistent communication throughout, gave me ease, in knowing that everything was handled. Thanks to Christine I am now on my way to the next chapter, in a smaller home closer to my family. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering downsizing.

Janice B.

"We originally met Christine at an open house and, while the home was not what we were looking for, Christine was. Together, we built a list of homes and after looking at them, Christine understood our likes and dislikes perfectly.  She said, “I know what you want and I will find it for you.” And she did! Additionally, Christine’s contacts – lenders, vendors, etc. – were very helpful and did wonderful work.”

Greg B. & Matt W.

Christine made what could have been a stressful experience fairly stress-free. She was masterful at pulling together and scheduling a top-notch group of professionals to accomplish whatever was necessary to prepare my house for listing. This included highly qualified individuals involved with required inspections, painting and staging which were all scheduled in an extremely short period of time. Christine's guidance in completing the required disclosures made the process much easier. Her marketing skills are excellent. I was amazed at how rapidly an interested buyer was found. Her representation of the buyer as well resulted in a satisfactory sale for all involved. I was extremely happy with the outcome of the sale of my house and would highly recommend Christine to everyone looking for a real estate specialist in Sonoma.
