We just want to take a moment to thank you and John for the wonderful job you both did helping us with this

Dear Christine and John,

We just want to take a moment to thank you and John for the wonderful job you both did helping us with this most amazing adventure!  From the very first house we saw, until the last, you helped us and supported our needs so well.   You understood what we wanted to find in a home.  And that is so key!  Especially, when one is moving cross country...   In the end we were so struck by the versatility and location of the River Road house, barn and solarium.  We were willing to trust you both, to literally purchase the property site unseen!  (or as a friend said "you bought a house off the internet?" ) With your help, and reassurance, and due diligence, we did just that!  And we could not be happier.

Thanks again for all your help making this such a smooth transaction.  We feel blessed.

Amy and Smokey

I have known Christine for a long time in my community, as a mother and as a friend...

During the last few years I have had the great pleasure to work with Christine involving the purchase of my dream home (which was quite the intensive search) as well as placing my existing home on the market. Every step of the way Christine has been responsive to the intricacies of the market, solid in her advice, savvy in sizing up critical real estate decisions and always ready and responsive for the issues at hand. I highly recommend her as she has provided not only real estate knowledge but the patience and the smarts to go with it. If you choose to work with Christine and her wonderful husband, John Nelson , you will feel very well cared for and have a great team working for you."

When it came time to evaluating the sale of our house, we turned to Christine and John based on a recommendation from a friend...

We received a quick reply to our inquiry, and soon we were meeting to review our property. Considering the sale of the house was very difficult for us. Christine and John were direct, honest and respectful, and the process proved to be more rewarding that we had anticipated. The real estate analysis report we received a few days later was thorough, insightful and decisive. Entering the foray of the real estate market can be intimidating, yet we were confident knowing we had a well researched, professional assessment of our home and an experienced team to work with.

We recently completed the purchase of a home in Ripton through Christine Fraioli and John Nelson...

We are pleased to say that the level of service provided by Christine and John, both individually and as a team, was nothing short of outstanding and considerably exceeded our expectations.

The complexity of our process was potentially exacerbated by several factors: the fact that we were coming from out of state, an alternative method of house construction, permitting issues, and generally reluctant sellers. John and Christine did thorough research in our absence, communicated expertly, and served as a calming influence in a sometimes contentious series of negotiations.

We are deeply grateful for their hard work on our behalf and look very much forward to having the opportunity to recommend them to potential clients. We would also be more than happy to serve as a reference for parties considering their services. They are truly an asset to their organization and to the community at large.

I was completely comfortable working with Christine and John...

They were enthusiastic but realistic, and not at all pushy. They listened carefully to my needs and desires for a prospective property and searched accordingly. Christine has a great eye for architecture, a warm and compassionate personality, and a willingness to work very hard for her clients. John is always ready to provide technical advice and financial analysis. I found them to be devoted to making good matches between people and property!
