What Clients Are Saying

Christine was our buyer's agent and did a wonderful job helping us purchase our home. She knew exactly what to do, when to do it and whom to work with on everything from pool inspections to mold remediation. We've bought three houses in the last 5 years and this was the smoothest and easiest one thanks in large part to her experience and savvy. Working with Christine was a pleasure from the beginning of our search all the way thru and even after we closed the deal. We hope to do it again in the future!

Homebuyers - Amherst

She was so nice with us in addition to help us with our 2 little ones, while visiting houses. She was great, patient, funny and understanding! She also helped us figure out how to connect utilities and find handyman etc...Thank you Christine, for helping us finding our new house :)

Relocating Buyers - Amherst

I just want to take this opportunity to tell you how wonderful Christine is, but you probably already know that!  She made the selling of our condo next to effortless.  Christine's dedication is second to none and I will certainly suggest her to anyone inquiring about a great realtor.

Kristina Powers (Seller)

Christine Lau is outstanding!  She knows what is needed to buy and sell properties.  She's very professional, interested in one's needs and knowledgable about many local topics to keep people, new to the area, informed.  She has become a real friend

Hal and Isabelle Pilskaln (Buyers and Sellers )

Christine was extremely helpful, proactive and creative in helping us find a house with land for our farm.  She was always accessible and ready with ideas and suggestions for problem solving.  She guided us through every step of our first home buying experience

Caroline Pam and Tim Wilcox ( Buyers)

Christine was a delight to work with. We have sold previous homes in different areas of the country, and never received the attention she so kindly provided. To Christine, Thank you for all the services you provided, the attention to detail, and making this long distance transaction pure pleasure!

Helaire and Bob Webster ( Sellers )

Christine was prepared in every aspect of her job, making our life and this transaction flow free. It was a complete pleasure working with Christine and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thank you!!

Susan Nelson ( Buyer )

I had Christine as an agent both for selling my single-family home in Amherst and for buying a condominium in South Hadley. I am extremely satisfied with her services in both of these transactions and highly recommend her to any prospective buyer/seller. I went with Christine because I noticed that she helped sell my neighbors’ house in a very short time. Prior to listing my house, I had her visit my home and make suggestions for making minor improvements that would enhance its marketability and appeal to buyers. She gave me apt advice on how to value the house without departing too much from what I had in mind. Even before I had listed my home she was in touch with prospective buyers and mustered much interest. Christine’s huge network of professional contacts was very helpful in this regard. She also provided me with a list of contractors, attorneys, inspectors and repairmen, which proved to be extremely useful during and post inspection. In the end I was able to sell my home within a short span of only 3 months given that all of this happened during the Covid pandemic! A huge kudos to Christine! While I was in the process of selling my home, I was also in the market to buy a condominium in the area. When we went out to look for homes, she rightly gave me advice on what the pros and cons of each home were, including its location and proximity to amenities. In this highly competitive market, Christine’s huge network of professional contacts helped identify properties even before they were listed on the market. She never put pressure on me to make offer on a property at a particular price, but instead let me decide what I feel was appropriate. I lost out on a couple of offers I made, but in the end I got the best property of the whole lot I saw! And Christine helped me time the purchase of my condo to fall on the same day as the sale of my house to minimize disruption for me. I appreciated this because the move actually took place during the pandemic! During the entire process I felt that Christine was more like a friend rather than an agent with self-interests. If you are looking for an effective realtor who is also personable and interested in helping you realize your goals, then Christine is your person. I strongly recommend her!

Home seller and Buyer - Amherst

Christine did a fabulous job selling our house. Her knowledge, marketing skills, and strategic thinking helped us sell our house quickly at an excellent price. In addition, her warm personality reassured us during the stress of selling and moving. I can only rave about our experience with her.

Christine and David - Amherst, MA

We are so thankful to Christine for being so wonderful and competent in helping us find a new home and getting us through the closing process. Christine was so knowledgable and through - she earned our trust. We would both recommend Christine Lau to anyone shopping for a new home.

Christine and Peter Gray-Mullen (Buyers)

Our agent, Christine Lau was infinitely patient and wonderfully personal. I almost regretted coming to the end of our search.

Professor Sydney Plum (Buyer)

We think Christine is the best of the best- we've used her before, if the occasion arises we'll use her again and we refer anyone we know who's in the market to her.

Virginia Michie (Buyer and Seller! )

Christine was in a word, wonderful! She remained patient, focused and above all enthusiastic and supportive. We cannot imagine a more pleasant experience. We feel we have made a trusted friend and will remain grateful to Christine for all her efforts.

Steve and Suzanne Severin ( Buyers )
