Townhouse & brownstone sales in Brooklyn and Manhattan

Past President of the Board of Directors for the University of Virginia Club of New York Competed in several Olympic distance triathlons for the Anita Kaufmann Foundation, which strives to educate the public about epilepsy and seizure disorders.
It's no surprise that someone who graduated #1 in her Air Force ROTC basic training class (out of 250 Officer Candidates) would quickly become a successful real estate agent. Christine has done over 260 co-op, condo and townhouse transactions in her 12+ years in real estate, covering all price points in both Manhattan and Brooklyn. As a real estate investor herself, Christine has in-depth knowledge of what makes a solid investment.
Christine listens to her clients needs, is responsive, and pays attention to every detail. She strives to be a trusted advisor; meaning that if it isn’t a good time to buy or sell, or if the price other agents have given you is too high or too low, she will give you her honest opinion. She guides her clients through the purchase or sale process while making it both stress-free and fun.
Christine is supported by her team members, Gulnara and Nancy who bring unique skills to the table that make this team truly stand out in the sea of NYC real estate agents. Underpromising, over-delivering and providing the highest level of customer service during and after the transaction is how they have built a business that is 95% referral based. Between Christine’s pricing strategy & negotiating expertise and Gulnara and Nancy's talents in staging, marketing & assembling pristine board packages, their listings sell for 99.6% of list price.
In addition to co-op and condo sales, Christine is an expert in townhouse and brownstone sales in both Brooklyn and Manhattan. Her goal is to be a resource to her clients for “all things real estate” so she has a team of contractors, expediters, architects and experts ready to help her clients navigate the purchase, sales and renovation processes.
Christine lives in an 1890's Brooklyn brownstone with her husband, Phil, her son, Shea, and their adopted feral cat, Ginger.
Round Top Estate
The best views in the Berkshires! This special 13,000-square-foot, 61-acre estate was built on a unique ridge with eastern and western views of more than 50 miles in either direction. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom home features an elevator, four fireplaces, surround sound in every room, an outdoor wood-burning stove, two windowed, walk-in closets, a breakfast room, a family room with a pool table, and a dining room that can easily accommodate parties of up to 24. You can watch the sunrise and sunset from the master bedroom.
The barn—a perfect guest house—currently doubles as an art studio on the ground floor; an open loft on the second floor; and a stately home office on the third floor. It comprises an additional two bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a full kitchen, and two wood-burning stoves.
Every detail of this property has been carefully considered, from an elevator for moving firewood to space-saving murphy beds. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, boasting a serene garden, outdoor pool, and a pool house with enviable views and plantings. The pool house is fully equipped with a half-bath, outdoor shower, and kitchen. Additionally, the home is solidly reinforced with copper and enviroshakes roofing, HardiPlank siding, radiant heating on the ground floors, a back-up generator, and heated parking for six cars. Catamount Ski Area is a mere five minutes away, and the nearby towns of Great Barrington, Stockbridge, and Lenox in MA and Hillsdale and Hudson in NY State feature great restaurants, shopping, arts, and cultural attractions. Why spend three times the money—and more time driving from New York or Boston—on property in the Hamptons when you could call the "Round Top" estate home?
