I had a dream. Other real estate agents turned up their eyes at me and dismissed my dream. My dream was a passion I had held from age 12. Now at 57, I had the thought that I could combine my lifelong passion with the cold hard pragmatism of real estate investing. My dream made financial sense to me, but not to most real estate agents I talked to. I guess that they thought it was too much hassle to deal with a guy like me- an idealist with an impractical dream that would be a lot of work for them. Christine Hannah made my dream come true. She did what other agents said was Impossible- to find an investment property close to my home in San Francisco that would let me do what I had been dreaming about for a long time. I am forever in her debt for this service, but more importantly, I thank her for believing in me and taking the time to hear what I was saying and finding the right property for me- the quitesssential problem client. The guy who wants what is impossible. Well, Christine found me the impossible and made my dream come true.
I teach public school music in San Francisco and was able to buy one of the 3 houses there in 2003 under 300K. My initial purchase, plus the 10+ years of sweat equity that I accumulated resulted in a large equity position. In the mean time, I lived like a church mouse and didn't buy anything that wasn't necessary. In 2015, I was in a position to buy an investment property. I secured a HELOC on my more than doubled equity in SF and went shopping.
I should tell you that my passion is Greyhound buses. I own 2 buses, one a seated restoration and the other one a motorhome conversion. These vehicles are normally a "go away" in any neighborhood. Christine found me a a property 32 miles from my home. An acre of land with a 4 bedroom house for 245K. The property had been on the market for 104 days and fallen through on previous offers. Christine was able to negotiate a difficult transaction and close the deal.
I am now in a positive equity position with the property that meets my unique needs. The facts bear out that Christine Hannah will go the distance and get you what you want to have in California real estate.
Sincerely, Peter Govorchin

"We searched for over a year for the perfect house for our family. Christine Hannah's patience and dedication to our search was consistent throughout, especially during the purchase process. Her long-term real estate experience and knowledge was very helpful to us. Christine painstakingly insured all building permits were in order by the time escrow closed. Additionally, she saved us a considerable amount of money with her persistence during negotiations. Thank you for helping us find a place to call home." Posted FEB/2017

I met Christine Hannah on the tennis court 10 years ago. Not only was I impressed by her consistency on the court, I have become equally impressed with her knowledge of the local real estate market and use of the latest real estate tools. Just as on the tennis court, she is giving her best in the real estate industry. I am very satisfied with her communication and negotiation skills. I know I will trust Christine with my business in the future. Sincerely, Marcus Perry August 2015

Christine Hannah has assisted with the purchase of my dream home. She found the perfect home with a wonderful FHA (203K)loan. My down payment was low. There was plenty of money to restore and decorate it without additional out-of-pocket money. Christine is my realtor and friend for life.

“When, in the market to buy a home, search for a tenacious marketer and a knowledgeable, experienced broker. Christine is this kind of professional. Because buying a home is such a large and personal purchase, consider, too, a broker who will take the time to listen to and truly hear your needs - - one who is able to translate and match those needs to the type of property you're looking for. Christine will be direct and ask the appropriate questions required to put you in a home that perfectly suits you - - and you'll have great fun working with her!!”
David Eakin, Assoc. Professor, DeVry University
