Mrs. Basham listened to the needs of my family and responded accordingly, by finding us a home that met our requests. She stayed in touch with us, just to make sure we were comfortable and satisfied. As a result, we reconnected with her as a result of needing to move again. Whenever we contact Mrs. Basham, she responds promptly. She is patient and supportive. We would recommend her to friends and family without hesitation.

Chris is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and offers fair advice as a realtor. She was amazing during the home buying process for me and my husband. Chris helped us in buying a Townhome in Columbia, Howard County and a single family home in Baltimore area. She is full of energy and gives her honest opinion on the properties. It was a pleasure to work with her and we will do so in the future. I truly feel that Chris was a perfect fit for us and I would recommend her for anyone who needs an agent.

Christine was more than helpful, informative and efficient as our realtor. She took on challenging deadlines and details with enthusiasm and success. Her honesty, professionalism and promptness left us more than pleased. We started our home search with a realtor and ended with a friend and a new home.

Christine is very helpful and she goes above and beyond. She treats you not as a client but as friend and always puts your best interest first. She helped me tremedously in my home search. Being a first time home buyer, she made the process easy and painless for me. I will highly recommend Christine to all my friends who will be looking to purchase a new home.

I cannot say enough good things about Chris and we couldn’t have been more pleased with her service. She was representing us as the buyers and was “on top” of everything during the entire process. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and a sweetie , to boot. She handled stressful situations and complications with calm, intelligence, and grace. She is a true professional and lovely to work with.

Christine was dedicated to our home search. She continued to look for homes with us and when we didn’t find the right home right away she kept on searching. She was patience and asked lots of questions to make sure she understood what we were looking for in a home. She made sure that the home had all of our needs and wants. We found a great neighborhood that was kid friendly which was at the top of our priority list. We have settled in and Christine continues to call and check in on our family. We thank her and would recommend her to other in their home search.

Thank you Chris!!

When we started looking for a home, Christine was the most responsive realtor in Columbia. We decided to look for a new home and within that first weekend, we found our new house. We completed the contract right away and Christine followed up on every step of the way. She has a great resource of contacts within the business and that made the process of purchasing our new home even easier. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a home.

Chris was more then a realtor she was a good friend, answering ALL my dumb questions. Holding my hand thought the entire process. She was professional yet friendly, helpful yet not overbearing…… Made the experience of buying and selling a home a positive one

Chris has gone the extra mile in every single aspect of our sale. She would do everything and anything in her power to support not only the transaction related issues but personal as well. She makes herself available when needed and was able to provide alternative solutions to every problem we encountered through our home sale. My family and I are very thankful for all Chris has done for us and the support she provided every step of the way. Thank you, Chris!!!

For the last 18 months, we worked with Christine to find our perfect empty nest dream house. She patiently helped us look for a lot, worked with us and the owner of a historic property, then when that fell through, sent us house after house that would fit our very specific needs–a post and beam home with lots of land, energy efficient, small, but not too small, etc.Christine was patient and professional, and when we finally decided on the perfect house, she represented us so well. In addition, because she has been in the business for so long, she has contacts for everything, from moving to home repairs, to mortgage companies. Thanks to Christine, we have had a great experience buying a beautiful home.

Chris is THE BEST realtor in MD. She sincerely wants her clients to find the home of their dreams, and she did that for our family. Chris is extremely hard-working and she provides exemplary service that will not be matched. Chris overcame many obstacles that we encountered, and she works very well and keeps her composure under pressure. Chris was always patient, honest, and sincere when she gave us advice and she never pressured us into a sale. We were honored to have Chris represent us at the settlement table. She is assertive and tactful. She worked through and kept track of many details which aided her solid negotiation skills. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in the Columbia area, Chris knows the neighborhoods and she is the one to help you find the house that is best for your needs and dreams. We would definitely recommend Chris and have the utmost respect for her as an experienced professional.

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the help that Christine Basham gave us as our realtor, during the process of purchasing a new home, as well as selling our old residence. She was warm, knowledgeable, available at all hours of the day or evening (even on weekends and during her vacation), intuitive to our needs, and extremely professional and efficient.

We initially met Christine approximately two years ago at an open house. At that time, she asked us how soon we anticipated purchasing a new home. We told her that we were just beginning the search, and that we were not in a hurry, as we wanted to find the “right” house for retirement. She contacted us via email every few months, but never put any pressure on us.

When we were ready to seriously begin looking for a home, we contacted her and at that point, she spent many hours with us locating different neighborhoods and types of homes that might fit our needs. She was very patient and helpful during the entire process of finding our perfect home, and selling our old residence, recommending repairs and contractors who were as equally professional as her. In fact, once we put our old residence on the market, we had fifteen showings in three days, with five offers, due in large part to Christine’s recommendations.

We highly recommend Christine Basham to anyone wishing to find a realtor.

Christine helped me with the purchase of my first home in September 2014. As a first time home buyer I needed a lot of assistance through the process and Christine was there every step of the way! The first time I asked her to meet me to see a property I was interested in, she had just gotten driven back from vacation an hour before and came to meet me on a Saturday evening. She was always available any time of day and on weekends as well. I closed on my house in 4 weeks so it was a tight timeline and Christine went above and beyond to help me stay on top of each step in the process to make sure we were on track. Christine was fantastic and I couldn’t think of anyone better to help me purchase my new home.

I would recommend Christine to anyone interested in buying or selling their house. I was a first time home buyer when I was introduced to Christine and she took all the scariness out of the whole process. She has extensive and well rounded knowledge on all aspects of purchasing a house. Christine is easy to reach and responds very quickly to email and phone communications as well. Even after the business has been completed she continues to provide great and professional service by helping you with any concerns or questions about your new home. Whether it be about how the house warranty works or recommending contractors to help reshape your new place. Christine is highly motivated to find the perfect house for her buyers. She is observant on what you like/dislike during her viewings and will suggest new listings to you based on your needs and wants as she learns more about what your looking for. We were able to find the perfect house in a short period of time with her help. I will definitely be going back to her for any help I need in buying or selling a home. She also makes the best cookies!

Chris recently listed and sold our home in Glenwood, MD and we can’t say just how pleased we were with the effort and professionalism she put into marketing it and ushering us and the buyers to settlement. Our property was rather unusual and complicated and, as a result, not easy to sell. But Chris worked tirelessly and creatively to find the best ways to advertise it and expose it to all potential markets. She was infinitely patience and diligent in promptly answering all of our questions and responding to our requests at almost any time, day or night. She is very skilled and calm in negotiations and problem solving with great attention to detail and getting things “right”. She knows the business and the area so well that whenever we had a need for help with a repair or any professional service she knew multiple people to recommend . And to top it all off, she is a sweetheart and an absolute delight to work with! After all was said and done, we felt like we gained a dear and trusted friend . We should add that Chris worked with us in finding and buying two properties and is great to work with from that perspective as well. We highly recommend her for any and all professional real estate needs! Sincerely, Rob and Jenny Brewington

I have used Christine 2 times – for rental and for purchase of our new home. She is highly knowledgeable of surrounding area and did a great job matching our requests/wishes with potential homes. She is very involved with the process from start to finish and is there to provide any kind of support or answer any of our questions (and we had a lot:)). She went above and beyond in discussing with builder and ensuring they correct a big problem they caused and tried getting us to pay for it. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking to rent or buy.

I have worked with many different agents over the years. Christine Bashman is among the best. Throughout the process, Christine was responsive and knowledgeable. She was invaluable in finding contractors to help get the townhouse ready for the market. It’s the first stressfree sale I have experienced. I highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling. She is pleasant to work with and keeps a positive attitude. Christine would be a competent and effective partner in any real estate venture.

Very attentive to detail. Quick to return calls. As a seller she pointed out what things needed to be fixed or upgraded. We are using her for another property. Would recommend her highly.

Christine is personable and prompt! She helped my family find our dream home – would definitely recommend her! Christine went out of her way to help us find a home in our preferred location even though it wasn’t her standard working area.

Christine was a wonderful realtor and very sweet person. She knows Columbia very well, especially the housing market and its many schools. She knows the neighborhoods and took the time to show how to navigate the area. She was always very responsive and found me houses that fit my criteria. She went above my expectations. I would absolutely recommend her!

5 ellerer

Christine is like having your best friend as your realtor. Without doubt she gets to know your family and sincerely cares . Her patience is endless and her responsiveness is unmatched. As my husband and I were dealing with many personal matters, Chris was always available with the kindest ear while displaying outstanding flexibility and offering great guidance. We were able to get a contract on our home in three days for our asking price!! Before our open house she offered wonderful tips and support to make our home look perfect. While there were many details to manage, Chris always had the best advise and got us to closing with ease. She is extremely knowledgeable and other realtors should learn from her!! If I ever needed another realtor in the future, it would be 100% Christine Basham.

Christine Basham is a very professional realtor that really shows care and vigor in helping people find the home of their dreams. She helped my family and I find a wonderful home with virtually all of our “must haves”. Her patience and attention-to-detail allowed us to view over 30 homes in a matter of weeks. She had a great knowledge of the area (schools, libraries, hospitals, shopping, etc.) She help put us in a position to make an offer and settle within 5 weeks. I would recommend her to anyone looking to find a great home.

5 lararbennett

Christine did a fantastic job as our realtor! She spent a great amount of time finding us the perfect house and truly listened to what we wanted. She had extensive knowledge about the area and market we wanted to purchase a home in, which went a long way to helping us find the perfect house! She was very flexible with her schedule and went out of her way to be available to show us houses whenever we were. Being first time home buyers, Christine did an excellent job explaining the home buying process to us and working with our lender. She definitely made the whole thing very easy. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a home in the Maryland area!

5 tgeh001

Christine was always available when we needed her. Very knowlegeable if what needed to be done to get us our home. We become more like family. I remember the day she was to leave for her family vacation, we called her up to show a home that had just came in the market she came out before she traveled. To me that’s is dedication

5 zuser20160819131505952

Christine was always there when we had questions and was very responsive. Very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking while working endlessly to sell our home. We bought and sold in a very short time which made the transition so easy for my family. Thank you for all of your hard work.

5 Jalopy

Chris is very personable and responsive. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She recommended what color mulch to make the house look more presentable. Chris coordinated someone to take care of repairs after the home inspection. When an issue arises before settlement she tracked down the problem and helped it get resolved. Good luck!!

5 sjcr1796

Christine has helped us sell 2 townhouses in 2 years. She is very kind, knowledgeable, responsive and highly experienced. She helped us to get missing information before the settlement. We highly recommend her and is asking her to sell another home for us next year. The best agent we have ever had!

5 patricia savory

Christine is the consummate real estate professional. She exudes excellence from top to bottom, a to z. She has served many different roles in the business and brings an immense wealth of knowledge to the entire process. She treats and serves all engaged partners with the utmost respect, and her customer service skills are exemplary. At the end of the process, you have a new found friend in Chris. She is patient, compassionate, thoughtful, and will bend over backward to help you in any way! From moment of our first meeting (and she came fully prepared) to settlement day, I knew I spent those quick three months in the best hands with Christine Basham! Thanks so very much, Chris!

Christine was great! She provided informed guidance and continuous support though the whole process, from the beginning of our search for a new house to sitting at the closing table. She quickly returned any of our calls and provided answers for our many questions.

It was a real pleasure to work with Christine. She will be my family realtor for life. She is so knowledgeable and right on. She has the answers to questions as soon as you ask them. When the office closes it does not matter to Christine because she strives to be your agent for life. If I ever have the opportunity to buy or sell another home, Christine will be my agent. My husband and I asked her if she ever sleeps. No matter what time of day you ask a question she has the answer for you. We have been involved in many real estate transactions and have never experienced an agent quite like Christine. I will tell all my family and friends who are looking to buy or sell a home about Christine.

5 rox013

Chris treats her clients like family. She was with us every step of the way through the entire process, and always kept us abreast of what was happening. Our house sold in 9 days during the month of December, thanks to her hands-on approach. She has a strong knowledge of the area, market, and what it takes to sell a home quickly. She worked tirelessly for us, and made a stressful situation of selling a home and preparing for a cross-country move a little more bearable. Whether you are relocating to Maryland, or buying/selling locally, Chris will take good care of you!
