Christine was an excellent broker in every respect. She has a thorough understanding of the Sonoma real estate market. Although many brokers may also have that, Christine distinguishes herself by her patience . We ended up looking for the right house over a 2 year period. She did not try influence us as we went through highs And lows reviewing properties . Christine allowed us to take our time until the right house finally showed up. Her guidance in the bidding process was invaluable.

We, lawyer and family, knew the reverse mortgage would be due soon after the ill owner's death and I recommended Christine to the family. They took to her right away and loved her enthusiasm and warmth, and information she was able to provide. When the reverse mortgage company wrote threatening letters after the owners death we were able to quiet them with Christine's listing, schedule, and early open houses and walk-throughs to show there was a topnotch marketing plan and an active effort to sell the house. When weather and decoration slowed interest Christine brought in a talented home stager and we received the an offer from the buyer to whom we ultimately sold. Christine was very helpful on setting the price, negotiations, and reliable inspectors, as well as connecting us to service people to help present the home. She raises issues we needed to understand, communicate well, returned all calls and emails immediately, and was active in the contractual states and signing at escrow. Her constant feedback on current and micro market conditions helped us in our sale negotiations. Her recommendations in negotiations helped get a close in about 20 days. She was great with reminders after sale with utilities and articles left at the home. She was undaunted and good humored through the process. I highly recommend her.

Christine made what could have been a stressful experience fairly stress-free. She was masterful at pulling together and scheduling a top-notch group of professionals to accomplish whatever was necessary to prepare my house for listing. This included highly qualified individuals involved with required inspections, painting and staging which were all scheduled in an extremely short period of time. Christine's guidance in completing the required disclosures made the process much easier. Her marketing skills are excellent. I was amazed at how rapidly an interested buyer was found. Her representation of the buyer as well resulted in a satisfactory sale for all involved. I was extremely happy with the outcome of the sale of my house and would highly recommend Christine to everyone looking for a real estate specialist in Sonoma.

Christine's genuine love for what she does, combined with her deep knowledge, attention to details, and experience were key contributors to the quick sale of my home. I would partner with her again in a heartbeat.

"We originally met Christine at an open house and, while the home was not what we were looking for, Christine was. Together, we built a list of homes and after looking at them, Christine understood our likes and dislikes perfectly.  She said, “I know what you want and I will find it for you.” And she did! Additionally, Christine’s contacts – lenders, vendors, etc. – were very helpful and did wonderful work.”

Christine, is the best! You just can’t get anyone better to take care of every aspect from start to finish and beyond!  Our retirement dream home has been realized, thanks to you.  You worked your little tail off, showing us homes, and tending to every little detail to make everything go smoothly.  Our new home feels so natural to us, and we feel very fortunate to call you our friend.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We wouldn’t have realized our dream without you.

Christine was  instrumental in  helping me place my home on the market. From the beginning, she assisted me in hiring the needed services required in preparing my home for market. Her consistent communication throughout, gave me ease, in knowing that everything was handled. Thanks to Christine I am now on my way to the next chapter, in a smaller home closer to my family. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering downsizing.

I wanted to express our sincere appreciation to Christine Benson for helping us make a challenging transition from a four acre home in the Sierra Foothills to our wonderful new home in Temelec.  Christine brought an excellent knowledge of local real estate values and locations to help us find a new match for retirement living in the midst of everything wonderful Sonoma has to offer.  However, the real differentiator in this case is that Christine brings additional attributes not always found in real estate transactions.  She is a fearless negotiator, a realist when it comes to pricing and property inspection issues, and brings a cadre of competent inspectors, plumbers, and roofers to the table as needed.  In the end, Christine has become a dear "friend" as well as our competent realtor and our extended local family has also embraced her for her good will and enthusiastic support.

Christine is very knowledgeable on the Sonoma Real Estate market and has been doing this for 30 years. She is very patient, since it took me months to find a house. She never expressed frustration when I came to look at a house but then decided not to make an offer and even rescinded an offer. She always put my happiness and needs first. Christine is now a member of the family since she has found three houses for this family.

She is very responsive, and kept in communication with us through every step in the process. She is very knowledgeable and explained everything in regards to what she was doing and what we needed to do. She recommended and helped coordinate inspections and people to work on the house. She did a  great job in marketing which resulted in many people stopping by the open house. She even watered the plants since we live out of town. She was a pleasure to work with.

Christine was awesome! I'm not sure where to begin. Here knowledge and expertise is broad and deep. She was completely in sync with what I was looking for and did not spend any time leading me down the wrong path. Her advice was sound and her attention to detail was simply incredible. As a first  time home buyer in California I felt completely comfortable that I was appropriately represented and in the best of hands. Christine is friendly, positive and so willing to do what it takes to ensure the best fit for her client. She was generous with her time and in answering any and all of my questions regardless of how mundane they were. She was a great assist as I worked to structure a winning offer. I also noted the very positive relationships she had with every one of the extended team members. Quite simply she's a gem and I would use her again in a heartbeat.

Christine's professionalism was of the highest quality. She was in constant communication with us and successfully coordinated all necessary personnel for the completion of complicated transactions between three clients. She also understood the emotional component of leaving and moving to a new  home, which we appreciated. We will not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family and consider her our realtor for life. We truly feel we have found a new friend.

Christine is aggressive, nice, creative, and detail-oriented all at the same time! We had not purchased a home in over 20 years, so a lot about the process has changed. Christine patiently answered our questions and provided guidance when we needed it. She is also very knowledgeable about the area  and that has been a big plus as well. We are very happy that we have been able to work with her!

Mier G.

Christine represented me when I purchased this property 6 years ago and I had no doubt about hiring her to sell it. Christine proved, once again, extremely knowledgeable and we'll versed in the Sonoma real estate market. My sale posed some unique challenges which she handled like a true pro. I am sincerely appreciative of her patience and professionalism and would recommend her without hesitation.

Christine Benson has been our trusted agent for two home sales and one home purchase – and we couldn’t be happier! Buying and selling a home can be an emotional roller coaster and Christine was at our side to smooth out the ride. She knows the Sonoma Valley market extremely well and helped guide us, educate us, and offer insights that we would not have known otherwise. We were buying a home out of the area at the same time we were trying to sell our home in Sonoma, and Christine helped us juggle all the details involved in the process.


It is imperative to have an agent that you believe in, listen to, and trust enough to act upon the advice given.


Thank you, Christine, for your friendship, good spirit and business acumen. We are indebted to you.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Christine. She was the listing agent on a house I wanted to purchase. The transaction was effortless and we closed in a week. She did a great job and I recommend her highly.
