Resourceful and strategic, Coldwell Banker Realty agent Christine Balestreri employs her keen eye for detail and commitment to deliver a high-quality experience while assisting buyers and sellers. She actively listens to clients' unique needs and wants to understand their goals. Wielding proficient marketing and public relations skills – honed from professional experience as a director of public relations and special events for Macy's – she strategizes and applies in-depth community knowledge and resources to develop orchestrated effective methods that achieve an optimal return on investment.
Christine – who obtained her license in 2006 – facilitates real estate in the Sacramento, California region, typically in East Sacramento, Sierra Oaks, Wilhaggin, Del Dayo, Carmichael, Fair Oaks, Arden and Arden Park areas. She has lived in this region for 36-plus years and has extensive knowledge of the neighborhood culture. Christine immerses herself in the community, volunteering for events with the American River Parkway Foundation and St. Ignatius Loyola Parish and School. Additionally, she networks with agents and top lenders to give her clients the best service. As a testament to her accomplished techniques, Christine is a top-producing agent and has been recognized by the Sacramento Association of REALTORS® Masters Club as an Outstanding Life Member, awarded to individuals who have closed $5.75 million in sales and eight transactions or closed 20 transactions for the last 10 years.
Strengthened by the assistance of her key support person (who handles the behind-the-scenes coordination) and the cutting-edge technology of the Coldwell Banker® brand, Christine rounds out her tactics with comprehensive approaches. For buyers, she carefully considers area amenities, recreation and proximity to schools to create tailored searches and find a home that embodies an ideal lifestyle for that client. Buyers also benefit from full access to mortgage, title and insurance providers.
For sellers, Christine implements extensive marketing campaigns. She taps into her understanding of home staging and the value of a first impression and works hand-in-hand with sellers to showcase the lifestyle of the home before going to market. Christine then excels at creatively positioning it in marketing assets (including brochures, virtual tours, postcards, advertisements and eBlasts) with professional photography. She completes the process by targeting the marketing materials at the most likely buyer demographic. Lastly, Christine seals the deal with tenacious pricing strategies and firm yet fair negotiation.
When Christine is not assisting buyers and sellers, she enjoys spending time with her first granddaughter Lucy, bicycling, swimming and anything related to design and fashion.
