Christy’s passion for real estate began when she and her husband purchased their condominium at 68th and Broadway in New York City. Unfortunately, due to a corporate relocation, they were never able to enjoy its nearby attractions and views up Broadway and Columbus. After returning to the Bay Area in 1999, Christy and her husband, a Los Altos native, decided to settle down in Los Altos. “We were drawn to Los Altos for its outstanding schools, friendly community, quaint downtown, and nearby open space.”

Christy is highly regarded by fellow Realtors because of her candor and fairness. She treats people as they would like to be treated.  She follows through on her commitments and communicates clearly and effectively. In addition to referrals from past clients, Christy receives many referrals from loan officers, including one who endorsed her by saying, “Christy will not only tell you why to buy a house but she will tell why NOT to buy a particular house, which isn’t common.”

Christy loves working with people and is involved in her community.  She regularly volunteers in the Los Altos Schools.  She is a participant and key decision maker in Sereno Group’s 1% For Good philanthropy in which the agents and company give 1% of each commission check to a not for profit organization.
