We had nothing but an excellent experience with Christine from start to finish. She was extremely professional and thorough, and made us feel like we were in very capable hands. She made the whole business of selling our house totally seamless.

Christine is the ultimate professional. She works hard, and her dedication will go beyond your expectations. She didn't waste our time with salesmanship, and instead offered honest, realistic advice that produced results selling our home, as well as buying our next. She is extremely responsive, and will always do her very best to look after her clients. We wouldn't think of asking anyone else to represent us in the future. Thank you Christine!The Jabs family
There are truly no words to describe the character, professionalism, integrity, sales capability, knowledge, care, creativity, drive, and compassion, of this woman. She is a lioness in lambs clothing and just pulled off one of the most challenging and complex sales in real-estate. When my husband and I met Christine, he said, "she is the one who is going to sell our home!" We both just knew from the moment we met her, through her charisma and our instant connection to her. Fortunately for us, the stars aligned. Christine saw my beautiful, but complicated, 3700 square-foot home on 9 acres of land on the Malahat - a construction-build that was halted due to financial hardship and tragedy. She saw my husband's vision and dream; she saw the beauty beyond our tragic circumstance. Rather than back-down, as many would have, she approached me with confidence and passion. She knew full-well that she would not only sell our property, but that she would help me to recover as much money as she could based on the difficult and falling market. With her knowledge, drive, and refusal to give up, she sold it, at lock-up stage! A partially completed, home-owner construction-build brings with it many challenging layers to navigate. Christine worked tirelessly so that I could focus on mitigating my own stress, focus on my family and on our healing. Her communication with me and explanation of all the real-estate complexities was outstanding. I had full trust and confidence in her to let her take the wheel and could not have made a better decision!Christine's professional advice and guidance salvaged me while I was in a complete fog and totally overwhelmed. I am beyond grateful to her and to Sotheby's International Realty Canada, for their unwavering generosity and compassion - thank you from the bottom of my heart!With utmost sincerity, Tonya Kilmer
Christine has been our real estate agent for selling my parent's house. What an outstanding agent! From initial contact, all the way to today, Christine has been fantastic. She is an excellent communicator and extremely professional. She has great resources for any services needed to get the house to market, and extremely knowledgable of the Victoria market. We really appreciated her suggestion of having a pre-listing inspection done, which gave us confidence of knowing the house's strengths and deficiencies, but also helped reduce time and worry on closing the deal. We were very impressed by her property marketing plan, and amazed how much attention the house received on the market and how quickly we were able to sell the house. She really helped my parents navigate through the selling process and they are over the moon with the results.We would absolutely recommend Christine to anyone who is looking for a great real estate agent. The best decision we made was to work with Christine! Thank you Christine for everything you have done, we are so grateful to have worked with you!

I met Christine at an open house. I observed her welcoming and professional approach as people came in the door. When i required a realtor I reached out to her. She was responsive, honest with a unique blend of professionalism and compassion.. She listens. Her service package, marketing and attention to detail and her negotiating skills are top shelf. I consider Christine “ my realtor” and would not hesitate to recommend her to my friends . Thank you Christine for all you did for me, in one of the most challenging times of my life.

Our experience selling our condo with help from Christine has been incredible. She was able to minimize stress for our young family during the selling process and facilitated an offer that we were extremely happy with! We can't recommend her and her brokerage enough. Thank you Christine!

Christine is probably the best and most professional realtor that we have dealt with in our 45 years in the building trade.,Sheila McDonald

We recently engaged Christine as our agent to find and facilitate the purchase of a new home in Sidney. In every respect, Christine provided us with exceptional service, great advice and expert guidance through the entire process. She quickly identified our desired attributes in a new home and she displayed superior negotiating skills in arriving at the final purchase agreement with the vendor and in a seamless fashion. Christine has an impressive level of knowledge and contemporary experience on the housing market in the Victoria area, and she was most helpful in recommending a house inspector and legal counsel. Christine proved to be extremely responsive and hard-working on our behalf, and we strongly endorse Christine to you as an extraordinary agent and person.Diane & Glenn Hardie, Sidney
I am so grateful to have been introduced to you and I’m even feeling pleased with myself for having chosen you as my Agent. You asked me all the right questions and understood my emotional state after having moved from my long-time home on the East coast. You handled my fears and tears with compassion and humour. I always looked forward to our excursions and I am thrilled with my new-to-me home, which fulfilled most of my ‘wants,’ even the absolutely necessary….pantry! Thank you so very much for guiding me through the whole process of home-buying in British Columbia. I have come through the whole process happy and satisfied. With very fond gratitude,Susan E. Swiggum, Oak Bay
Christine was professional, dedicated, compassionate, and completely amazing through this whole selling process. We had a bad experience with a different realtor last year and Christine far, far exceeded our expectations. She is confident and knowledgeable and so well informed about the ins and outs of the process. Our property is unique and does not sell itself. Christine marketed it beautifully, made herself an expert on our house and our situation and she worked diligently to get our house sold. We are highly recommending Christine Ryan of Sotheby’s International Realty.Phaedra Fairwell, Shawnigan Lake
Christine provided us with exemplary service as our agent. Her expertise with the area, her willingness to go the extra mile and her ability to see what we needed as a family made the experience of buying a home in the South Island area a breeze. She worked hard to ensure that we were comfortable and her attention to detail helped the sale go through without a hitch. I would recommend her to anyone.John & Katrina Forrest, Colwood
We quickly knew we were being handled by an experienced Realtor when going through the process of acquiring a house. Christine has a different level of dynamism and gets the job done. Always one step ahead and has your back. Satisfied clients here, good job, Christine!Francisco & Ayleen Rivera, Duncan
Thank you for selling our house. You are a magical lady, I truly believe the universe sent you to us. We are so happy. Thank you for everything, ChristineBevin & Jenny Hodgins, Cobble Hill
Thank you, Christine!!! Arriving on the Island from another part of the world was overwhelming for us to say the least. We met Christine for coffee/tea and we knew as soon as we saw her that she was the Realtor for us. Attention to detail, hard-working, approachable and most of all caring are qualities we found in Christine. We know we are not always easy clients to work with: Christine took our needs and concerns seriously and treated us with respect, kindness and patience. Christine has become much more than our Realtor, she is our friend, she has helped us with organizing not only the purchase of our house but also with the other concerns of doctors, dentists, hairdressers etc., you will not find a more caring person in this industry. So if you want the hardest working, most caring realtor to go through the buying and selling process, Christine is the one for you!!Sandy & Rob Bambullis, Cowichan Valley
Thank you for your direction and services Christine. You and your team were fabulous to work with and were the reason the unit sold at a record price for the niche building.Julie

When my mother decided to sell her house this summer, she was hoping for a quick sale with the highest possible price. We are so glad we referred her to you! You listened to my mother’s requests and went above and beyond to provide her with excellent service. I was very impressed with your negotiating skills and high level of professionalism. We will definitely contact you again for any future real estate transactions.
Kelly Rhone, Mill Bay
Christine was such a help through all this process, very attentive to my special needs and extremely professional. She always kept me informed, gave me personal expert guidance along the way and the results prove my point. I would recommend her in the blink of a eyelash, and I was impressed by being a Sotheby's client in every way.

We had the pleasure of working with Christine Ryan to purchase our first home. Christine's drive, energy, and great commitment to her clients highly impressed us. We greatly appreciated her professionalism throughout the purchasing process. We would recommend Christine to anyone looking for a home. Craig and Anna

Christine. Thank you for your dedication, intelligence, professionalism and humour. You were a joy and a delight to work with through the selling process of a home I had owned for twenty-one years.I was in the interview process with several realtors when I met Christine. I was impressed with her intelligence, ethics, attention to detail, and easy conversation. She asked the right questions, walked in the forest in high heels, listened, and answered my questions thoughtfully, revealing a depth of knowledge of the real estate market and the process of selling a home. I made the decision to engage her as my realtor and never looked back. She was a dream to work with! She gave reasoned guidance so that I could make informed decisions, all with a quick wit and a smile. I felt confident that I was well informed and that she had my back in a potentially stressful process. Professional and with integrity and charm... a winning combination! I highly recommend Christine Ryan!
To anyone considering selling their home, I would highly recommend Christine Ryan and the Sotheby's team. Everything was done in a very professional manner, from the staging, photography, marketing and the showing of our condo. We were kept informed during every step of the process and given stats and feedback from potential buyers. We were very pleased with the service.
Christine, you are a gem! David and I are so glad we were referred to you. You really took time to get to know us and help us articulate what we loved about our place. Your team created a professional presentation that showed a Home, not just another property for sale. Most of all, with warmth and humour, you were available to help us navigate the sales process from start to finish. Getting a top dollar sale in record time was icing on the cake. We anticipated the sales process with dread. Instead, it was a dream. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Looking forward to finding the perfect downsized home with your help.
