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.”

We just bought a home in Mountain View with Christy’s help. Our experience with her was wonderful. Her good relationships with people in the industry was the key to our getting our offer accepted in this incredibly competitive market. Christy stayed on top of every aspect of the deal, and has helped us with lots of follow-up details since closing. We would definitely recommend her.

Christy did a great job of getting our house ready to go on the market and to get it sold quickly for a great price. She is honest, helpful and collaborative in her approach. She brought value by timing the sale well and getting the entire package ready to go so that the ultimate transaction was turnkey. I recommend her highly.

Christy helped my wife and I buy our 1st condo. We were nervous and uncertain. Christy expertly guided us through the process - she really WORKED. FOR. US. We would go out of our way to work with Christy again.

Having worked with Christy over the course of six years on numerous real estate transactions, I can strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a capable, committed, honest, hardworking Realtor. Christy puts her clients’ needs first and always goes the extra mile to make sure that everyone is happy during and after the transaction. Christy is a people pleaser and the quintessential real estate agent.

Christy is a highly knowledgeable and diligent real estate agent. She is thorough and walks you through the process from start to finish. A professional who is personable and easy to work with. She uses the latest in internet searches and statistics to keep you up to date on the market and current trends. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is new to real estate or a seasoned veteran. She gets the job done.

Christy did a wonderful job selling my condo in downtown Los Altos. I was a bit hesitant to use her thinking maybe I should use a more “ well-known” realtor, but she arrived fully prepared with marketing plans, etc. and I was impressed. She proved to be a great choice...always available and promptly returning phone calls. Not pushy, but very firm when she needed to be.
Christy is very helpful and goes the extra mile. I highly recommend her.

Christy is a broker extraordinaire. I found her to help me with a home purchase in the Palo Alto area as part of a cross country move from NYC. I was immediately struck by her patience and kindness—I had a ton of questions as someone new to the area, and Christy took her time in answering them all, and showing me around.

I was only more and more impressed and delighted as I continued to work with her. She showed me a perfect variety of options in my price range. Other brokers told me I couldn’t get what I wanted for my budget, but Christy will work with your variables, whatever they are. And she’s just incredibly nice, positive, and enjoyable to be around.

Our transaction was very challenging with some difficult personalities on the other side, and Christy was a real pro at not only negotiating an incredible price for me (her kind and gentle demeanor belie a tough negotiator inside!), but also navigating a sticky transaction gracefully while advocating for me and keeping me away from the messiness.

She clearly knows her stuff and is very professional, but she would also offer creative ideas on everything from furnishing to landscaping. She shared all of her extensive contacts with me for everything from contractors to real estate attorneys (she and her husband do home development, so that expertise comes in really handy when you’re purchasing a home with her!). She really went above and beyond her role when she helped me arrange meetings with contractors and even went to some meetings in my stead while I was still in NY packing up. She just oozes generosity and service.

She is also not a broker that just forgets about you after the purchase. She has checked in with me frequently to see how things are going, how the house is, how the relocation has gone.

I love my new home, and I have Christy to largely thank for that. Whenever I think of my relocation, and what is usually a stressful time, Christy comes to mind as one of the main reasons that it was a happy and positive experience. I can’t recommend her enough.

Christy Ying is simply the best real estate agent ever. We met her a year ago when a friend recommended her to us. They knew about our frustration with the bay area real estate market. Christy saw all the red flags that told her we were not going to be easy clients but she decided to help us. Home after home, she never gave up on us. A few time, we thought we had found the right home. But instead of a quick sale, she pointed out things that we had missed. For example, there was a great home with a few trees in the driveway. We thought we would buy the home and chop them out. But Christy told us that we probably wouldn’t get approval to remove them. On another home, we wanted to buy, Christy pointed out the logistical nightmare of remodeling and saved us again. Her husband is a developer so she would often get his opinion about the cost of renovations. They has built several multi-million dollar homes and so they know the Los Altos, Palo Alto, and Mountain view markets like the back of their hand. After she found us the most amazing house at the most amazing price, she is still helping us out with the house. Just yesterday, I called her up to ask about the solar panels. She is way more than our real estate agent, she’s our best friend. Thanks so much Christy. You are the best.

Christy is an amazing real estate agent, and I am so fortunate that I a friend referred me to her when I was ready to sell my house. She went way above and beyond the call of duty, providing me with excellent guidance and help every step of the process. She is very personable, incredibly reliable, thoroughly knowledgeable and so easy to work with. She was so helpful in helping me think through big decisions, determine how to make my house ready for the market, refer me to and help me work exceptional contractors and vendors, and evaluate the offers I received. I can’t say enough about how amazing Christy is - I recommend her to anyone. I was able to sell my house for $26,000 over the asking price. She is fantastic!

Christy Ying is an excellent realtor. She helped us in our year-long search and eventual acquiring of a house. In the crazy markets of Sunnyvale and Mountain View recently when a house will come on the market, have an open house, take offers that week and be sold a few days later Christy had to be always reachable and ready to act on houses we liked. She gave great, well thought out advice on how much to offer and was strategic in presenting the offers. The entire time we worked with her, she always put the needs of our family first. After the closing she helped us find all of the help we needed when it came to a gardener, painter, contractor and pool man.
