Christine Testimonials

Shawn O’Hara & Steve Binder
“As we approach the New Year, we want to share with you our top 10 reasons why we think you are the world’s best REALTOR(R).

The reasons –
#10 – You know your way around Lake Tahoe and all the neighborhoods without using a map.
#9 – You didn’t mind showing us the same property at all times of day and night so we could see it in different ‘lights.’
#8 – Amazing patience, even when we brought our contractor in to evaluate removing all the walls in the house.
#7 – Property marketing skills that include multiple open houses regardless of what football team was playing on TV.
#6 – Sound unbiased advice, based on our needs, when we asked if you thought it was the right property for us.
#5 – Willingness to help when we locked ourselves out of the house within the first 3 days of moving in to the place.
#4 – Help in making sure that the property we sold and bought had quality, timely inspections, appraisers and other reliable, professional service providers.
#3 – Amazing listening skills and the ability to choose only the properties we would actually be interested in buying.
#2 – An uncanny understanding of the market when pricing homes with ability to chose the right price to move the property quickly.

And the #1 Reason you are the world’s best REALTOR(R) is:
You found us a place we just LOVE!

Finding a home in the Tahoe market is hard, sometimes difficult and emotional. Chris, you are such a pro that the whole process was smooth and easy. We especially appreciate your willingness to work with us over an entire year to find the right property. And when it was time to sell our home, you were there again with the right advice and a process that made the sale quick and simple. Again a pleasant experience thanks to your professionalism, skill and wonderful style.

We are happy to refer you to all our friends and know that you will continue to have great success in the future. Thanks so much for all your help!

Best wishes,

Shawn O’Hara and Steve Binder

Dear Sir,

We have completed three transactions with Christine Ferris of CENTURY 21 McGregor Realty Inc. It goes without saying that had we not been extremely pleased with the service and professionalism of your agent, Christine Ferris, we would not have continued with her.

Chris is an amazing lady! She is extremely knowledgeable in the field and in the Incline area, and is well respected by her colleagues both in her own office and in dealing with the mortgage brokers, title companies, repair people, inspectors, etc.. They know that if Chris is involved, she will follow up and have actions taken in a timely manner and the project will be completed as it should be. If Chris doesn’t know an answer, she is quick to research the problem and her follow through is remarkably prompt.

Chris is a pleasure to know and a pleasure to work with. She made all our transactions do-able and flow smoothly. She is an asset both to CENTURY 21 McGregor Realty,Inc and to the real estate business in general. I would recommend her highly and would definitely choose her again as our agent should the need arise. She’s the BEST!

Sincerely,

Marilyn Smith

To Whom It May Concern:

Christine Ferris was our real estate agent on the sale of our property at 1064 Tomahawk Trail in Incline Village, Nevada in July of 2002. Christine represented us as the sellers and also represented the buyers on this transaction. We could not have asked for a more professional or a smoother sale of our house.

Buying and selling houses can be very stressful: people’s emotions are often tied up with the property they are selling and everyone wants to get the ‘best deal’ possible. We believe that the fact that Ms. Ferris was our real estate agent helped to alleviate any hard feelings that could have occurred. When issues came up regarding repairs, etc., as they often do, Christine handled situations before they became problems. Thanks to our agent’s excellent relationship with both buyers and sellers, and her skills as a mediator, we were able to close escrow early and have since maintained a very friendly acquaintance with the people who bought our house.

We have lived in Incline Village for 15 years and have purchased three homes and sold two during this time. Christine Ferris is the first real estate agent we have worked with whom we can whole-heartedly recommend and would use again either as a buyer’s or seller’s agent if the occasion should arise. From the moment we listed our house until we closed escrow, we felt Christine went out of her way as our listing agent to meet our needs.

To whom it may concern:

I am very pleased to be asked to write a reference for Christine Ferris, with whom I’ve had a professional relationship for the last five years. My wife, Tia, and I first met Christine when she listed and sold our condo in Incline Village in 1999. We were incredibly impressed with her professionalism and comprehensive attention to detail.

Over the last five years, Tia and I have also recommended Christine to several friends, who have used her for their real estate transactions, and every one of them has come back to us with positive feedback and to thank us for recommending such an outstanding REALTOR(R).

In our most recent real estate purchase, in September of 2002, Tia and I again chose Chris to represent us and were very pleased with the results. We looked at several properties that spring and summer, before Christine got a new listing on a home that we decided to buy. Christine represented both the seller and us, as the buyers, and did so with absolute fairness and professionalism.

As a mortgage broker in Incline Village for the last 2 years, I have had the pleasure of working with Christine Ferris and dozens of her clients on real estate purchases and sales. I continue to hear her clients and peers rave about her and describe her as one of the best REALTORS(R) they’ve ever worked with.

Tia and I are currently looking for a new home in Incline Village and have again chosen to work with Christine. Please accept our personal recommendation and feel free to contact me at any time for more information.

Sincerely,

Marc J. Rancourt

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is being written on behalf of Christine Ferris, CENTURY 21 McGregor Realty Inc. Chris Ferris is an outstanding REALTOR(R). My husband, John Allison, and I chose her after watching her impeccable performance in Incline Village for several years. Prior to working with Chris, we were represented by a different REALTOR(R) for five transactions in Incline Village. After now knowing Christine Ferris’ professional skills and integrity, we will never choose anyone except her.

Chris Ferris listed our home for sale late in the summer of 2003. When we filled out the Sellers Disclosure Form, she insisted on our clarity and honesty. Then she reviewed it carefully with us so that she was very familiar with every detail and quirk of the house. Throughout the listing agreement period, Chris went out of her way to advertise our home, conduct open houses, make suggestions for improving the appeal, and remain in close communication with us regarding showings. Then suddenly, one of her buyer clients decided to make an offer on our home, which we accepted. The integrity and commitment to professionalism which Chris showed to both sides was incredible. At first we were hesitant to have her also represent the buyer, but she had built our trust and confidence in her so deeply that we quickly recognized she had the skills to help each party feel comfortable. We truly believe she provided the best possible service to both sides, and if Chris were to represent both seller and buyer again, we would not hesitate to hire her.

Chris was extremely organized in helping both sides meet our deadlines during escrow. She provided us with timelines and instructions for every aspect of the escrow in a confidential and secure way. She provided us with copies of the countless papers of each contingency removal and assisted in keeping these details in order. Her recommendations for inspectors and repair contractors met the needs of both sides, while she remained sincerely committed to her duties as the listing agent. My husband and I also admired her ability to always follow through on her promises.

There were some parts of this two-sided escrow which were extremely demanding and challenging, but Chris handled every detail with precision and clear communication. We fully support Christine Ferris in any real estate transaction.

Very sincerely,

Sally R. Allison
