“I would not hesitate to recommend Christal. She specializes in the neighborhood I wanted to get into--Capitol Hill-- and she is incredibly knowledgeable about both the market in the area and the neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods. She worked with me for quite a while, as the market was hot and my budget was not. I was consistently amazed by her patience with this and willingness to get me through to a fantastic row house in my desired area, with the yard I was wistfully hoping for.

All in all, we made four offers and looked at dozens of properties and she was always positive and even helped me stay positive when I was getting down in the dumps about my budget. She also has an extensive list of contractors, inspectors, locksmiths, mortgage brokers, etc. that can help make the process easier for you.”

“Christal is a truly excellent real estate agent. She served as our listing agent for the sale of our home in Capitol Hill. Not only is she incredibly organized with written updates on next steps, but she brings her own eye for design to the process — coordinating in advance to find the best staging company so that we had the benefit of beautifully designed interiors for our sale & coordinating minor repairs necessary to make the house in top condition. All of which reflected in the final sale price. Christal is extremely accessible, deeply knows the market and makes you feel like you are her first priority. She also was essential in helping us navigate the landscape around tenants prior to listing our home for sale. We’re so glad that we chose Christal and Compass — her business skills combined with all of the other intangible talents set her far apart from any other agent!”

Working with Christal was a great experience. Christal was extremely patient with us in this process. As prospective home buyers know, looking for a new home can be difficult and frustrating. Christal definitely eased our concerns and helped us find the perfect house for our family. I can't recommend Christal enough.”

“Christal was terrific to work with when we bought our home in 2018. She was recommended to me by a colleague, and I have now recommended her to several friends in turn! She was tremendously patient with our first-time homeowner questions, gave candid advice about our budget and negotiating strategy, and handled a few hiccups in the closing process so that our experience was smooth and relatively stress-free. If we ever decide to leave this home, she will be our first call!”

“This was my first experience selling a house and Christal Goetz was such a great help to us. She had great suggestions for staging our house and a few other minor things that made all the difference in how our house showed. She is very responsive to emails, calls texts and made the process simple. I look forward to using her again when we are ready to buy our next place!”

– Meredith E.

 

Christal helped us buy our first home in a very tough buyers' market. She went to numerous open houses with us each week for months and was always helpful, upbeat, knowledgeable, and just fun to spend time with through multiple offers and a stressful process. When we worked with different agents later, we realized how much time and care she took with us; she set a very high bar. She helped us sell the same house years later and she continued to be incredibly detail-oriented, organized, informed, and positive. I always enjoy spending time with her and she is just a kind and conscientious person who also sent gifts and kind messages through the years! When we recently sold our home, she had an artist draw a beautiful picture of the treehouse my young kids were sad to leave. It was an incredibly thoughtful gift that shows such kindness and thoughtfulness! Thank you, Christal!”

“Christal was a phenomenal realtor. We had to move from San Diego due to work and she assisted us through the entire process of buying a condo in Washington D.C. from California. Her attentiveness, responsiveness, and thoroughness made buying the condo from across the country (without being able to look at it in person ourselves) a smooth process and easy transition for our family of four. She went above and beyond doing multiple facetime calls for showings and measuring a multitude of rooms and counters for us!! I am so grateful that we had her as our realtor and recommend her wholeheartedly!!!”

Christal helped me and my wife buy our first home in DC earlier this year and we cannot recommend her enough. From walking us through the ins and outs of buying our first home and helping us navigate a crazy market and strategizing on offers and escalations to making the closing as painless as possible, she was fantastic and went above and beyond during every step of the process. She's extremely knowledgeable of the Capitol Hill area and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy there during this crazy market.”

Working with Christal Goetz was an absolute pleasure. As a first-time home buyer, I'm not too proud to admit I had very little idea of how the whole process worked. Christal was there to guide me every step of the way, going above-and-beyond what I would have expected. One thing I learned working with Christal is how important it is to work with people who are experts in the neighborhood — realtors, lenders, inspectors, appraisers — and she definitely fits the bill. I'd recommend Christal to any friend in a heartbeat.

– Pedro A.

 

I highly recommend Christal for all of your real estate needs! As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were in over our heads when we started the process. Christal was extremely patient with us as we navigated the market and figured out where exactly in DC we wanted to live. In this highly competitive market, Christal gave us all of the tools we needed to position ourselves with strong offers. I also really appreciated that Christal did not push us too much one way or the other on any condo or house and instead channeled positivity and optimism throughout the process. That’s how we landed on our first home, which is an absolute dream come true!

My partner and I worked with Christal to buy our first home in May 2021. It was a crazy market in which most homes were getting multiple above-listing offers even if they were only on the market for a few days. Christal was the perfect agent: tenacious on our behalf without ever pushing us to move more quickly than we were comfortable. We looked at homes for months before we found one that we wanted to make an offer on. Christal was incredibly patient when we moved slowly at first, never making us feel like we were being too picky or unrealistic, and then lightning quick when we did make an offer, turning everything around in a matter of hours, rather than days. She provided us with a wealth of information on the homebuying process and, as important, was just pleasant to be around during home tours. At the end of the day we feel like we gained both a home and a friend!”

We had a great experience selling our Capitol Hill home with Christal Goetz. She was very communicative and helpful throughout the process. She provided an honest assessment of which updates would add value at sale and then oversaw the work to complete them. We went to market in early April just as the pandemic was becoming a reality, and Christal quickly implemented new strategies to ensure our home received attention. We sold our home at a great price, and Christal made sure our put-of-state closing was just as easy. We would highly recommend.”

– Kristi S.

 

Highest recommendation possible! Christal is a fantastic realtor. She was patient and very helpful as my partner and I's priorities changed and our search shifted from a city condo to a suburban house. She continually gave us excellent guidance and allowed us the space to draw our own conclusions, but on a few occasions when we were clearly off-track, she did not hesitate to give us frank and forthright advice. When we finally found the right house, it was a competitive bidding situation; her recommended offer terms were dead-on, and she was terrific as we navigated some contract contingencies and pre-close complications. Working with Christal is a pleasure, we would absolutely engage her services again."
