“Working with Christine lso was an amazing experience. We initially had another agent representing us, however, nothing happened with few showings. After signing up with Christine, she has completely transformed our condo to an amazing unit!! We had a successful open houses and everyone raved how well staged it was. Christine was able to overcome many issues and successfully closed the transaction in the smoothest possible way. She was attentive and took care of all paperwork with her team of professionals. She frequently reported to us, therefore, we were aware of all of the issues, every step of the way. We felt very relaxed and knew that we could completely trust her. Christine helped make this transaction, a stress-free experience for us. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their home. We are so happy that we have selected her to represent us!”

“We had such a great experience with Christine buying our first home. My husband and I were looking for 4 years for a little fixer upper we could eventually call home. We worked with several agents that were as they said “top of their game”. We lost out on every bid and had no idea that we would be up against other people. One house that just went on the market had l 7 offers within hours. We felt defeated and figured it just wasn’t in the cards for us. We stopped because we found the entire process frustrating. One day I was ta I king to a neighbor when she recommended Christine. I was hesitant at first. I had a bad taste in my mouth from our previous experience. I didn’t want to set myself up again for failure. From that first introduction
Christine didn’t waste any time. She asked us what we’re looking for and actually listened. She took notes and within a day we had a long list of homes to look over. I’ II have YO UR best interest at heart is what she said. I have your back. We trusted her and took her advice. She is extremely knowledgeable and well respected in the real estate community. She is very transparent and makes it very easy to understand how real estate works. Real Estate is very competitive and we understood that we had to act fast. The whole process couldn’t have gone any smoother. We not only found a home but it was move in ready with a pool! I am so happy I can’t put it into words. My advice is make her your agent and listen!!!!”

“We decided to go with Christine after seeing the time and effort she put into helping her clients. We saw this first hand when some members of the SFV Japanese American Community Center needed to sell/buy their houses. They highly recommended Christine because she valued her clients and wanted to make sure she found the best buyer/seller for their home, so when it was time to sell our father’s house in North Hollywood, we decided to go with her. We were a little apprehensive since it was a month and a ha If into the COVID- l 9 pandemic with the “stay at home” order. Christine gave us options on what we could do to sell the house and since we didn’t know much about the real estate business, she patiently answered our questions. Our father’s house is what you would call a “fixer upper” so we struggled with the question…Do we fix it up first or do we sell “as is”? We decided to sell “as is” because of the pandemic and the shifting times it caused. Within one week, Christine had a cash buyer and she was able to get more than the listed price and because it was a cash sale, escrow would close in two weeks. We were thrilled! We would definitely recommend Christine to our family and friends. Christine is hardworking and honest. She always let us know the good as well as the bad and she was always in constant communication with us. She made a very challenging process easier for us. Thank you, Christine!”

“Christine lso is the epitome of the word, “professional.” We have worked with Christine in the past so when my parents decided to list their home, we didn’t hesitate to call Christine. From the moment my parents met Christine, they knew she was going to be their listing agent. She took time to meet with my parents, to genuinely listen to their needs and requests and to reassure them that they would be in good hands. She kept them informed of every single step along the way and did not let one stone go unturned. Not only is she a top notch agent but she goes over and beyond for you to beautifully stage your home. When it comes to staging, Christine has the unique ability to stage your home with gorgeous pieces of furniture and decor to really make your home “pop.” For th is sale, due to the Covid-1 9 crisis, she decided to hire an outside service who, with Christine’s guidance, vision, and expertise, did an astounding job. When we were met with some hurdles, Christine was calm, patient, and very resourceful. In addition, Christine always put the health and safety of others during the Covid-19 crisis as her first priority. When you hire Christine as an agent, you get much more than that. You get a thoughtful friend who truly cares for the well-being and you and your family. We are so grateful to have had such a positive experience with Christine and look forward to continuing our working relationship with her in the upcoming years.”

Mine and William’s journey with Christine lso began nearly 12 years ago. My husband and I were newly married, expecting our first baby, and searching for a home to rent for our growing family. It was our great fortune that I showed up at Christine’s rental house that day and we instantly clicked. We moved in and only weeks later brought our baby girl home. Fast forward l l years. Christine is still our landlord, but has looked out for and taken care of us like we were her family-a mother duck looking out for her chicks, she always told me. We were now in a position where we were looking to buy our first home, it was the obvious decision to ask Christine to be there leading the way. In a very competitive market for buyers, we were lucky to have Christine’s expertise and tenacity! When we found the house, Christine made it her mission to ensure that we would make it our next home! With multiple offers made on the home, including all cash offers, Christine worked her magic and our offer was accepted! Throughout the entire process, Christine was amazing! We are so appreciative of everything she did for our family to be able to take this next step! We will definitely recommend Christine lso to any of our family and friends looking to buy our sell a house!! She will make your dream her mission!!

“I went to an open house for fun on a Sunday afternoon. I met the Christine there and told her that I was in love with the house. She quickly got us qualified basically in 24 hours, but unfortunately, we were out bid on that house. My Mom recently had both legs amputated from diabetes and is in board and care. I explained to Christine that my vision is to bring her home. The house had to meet the needs of a wheel chair bound mom. At the same time, we needed to put my townhouse on the market. Christine already had a plan in her head. We started looking for the dream house and at the same time Christine was staging, more like wowing my townhouse. We found our dream house. At the same time, she was having open houses on my townhouse. The dream house went into escrow. The townhouse sold above asking price and is in escrow. This all happened in about 3 weeks. Christine is a hard-working agent. She has no office hours. We went to look at my dream house at 10 P.m. because she could not wait to show it to me. Not only is she super woman, she has a super team working with her. Hektor, her loan agent, Marcine, her escrow officer. my husband works overseas and because of this the team worked late some nights to accommodate his time zone. Being in escrow is never easy, but these people knew what they were doing and predicted problems ahead of time and navigate us through them. I highly recommend Christine and her team if you are looking to buy or sell.”

“It was a great experience having Christine lso as my real estate agent. Christine has a senior designation certificate, so she is trained and experienced in working with seniors like myself. She is Patient, kind and caring. I am in my 80’s and needed help transitioning from a sizeable 3-bedroom house with a large yard that was becoming too much for me to maintain. She listened to all my requests and needs. Within days she was able to find me the perfect 1 level condo that captured everything I need. She then made sure the entire buying process was as smooth as can be. Thank you, Christine, for making this life transition so easy for me.”

“We highly recommend Christine lso if you want a real estate agent with the above qualities. My husband and I had lived in our house for 20 years. We were the original owners of the property so it was a sentimental sale. Christine was wonderful. She was very understanding and compassionate. She understood our circumstances. There is a lot that goes into the preparation and sale of a house and Ms. lso thoroughly explained the process. She detailed everything from the preparation, the listing, to the open house, escrow, and so on … Christine also patiently walked us through the signing of disclosure documents. She had several other clients but she was never too busy to return a phone call or to keep us informed daily. As an added bonus, Christine did an excellent job at designing and staging our property at no cost to us. As a result, with just a modest investment, our house sold quickly and at top dollar. In addition, Christine marketed our house so well that there was a tremendous turn out for the Open House and we received multiple offers. There were some minor issues, no fault of her own however, and Christine always maintained a professional and positive attitude with us. And she was able to resolve the issues. We highly recommend Christine lso. She is a knowledgeable “top” agent with lots of experience, and works extremely hard for her clients. Ms. lso is a delightful and pleasant person to work with. Give this savvy agent a call today.”

Christine lso is an outstanding realtor with a passion for her work. She is very professional, at the same time, she is a personal and considerate real estate agent. My wife and I are incredibly lucky to have met Christine lso. We had a good real estate agent previously when we first purchased our first home, but Christine went way above and beyond our expectations. She worked tirelessly to help us sell our condo. She was always available and diligently communicated with us patiently throughout the process. She has high level of knowledge and expertise in the San Fernando Valley market. Her recommendation of our listing price was very accurate. Christine came over more than several times to plan repairs and to consult staging design. Her designing talent is amazing. She is a staging pro, who knows how to attract potential buyers. When our home was listed, it was perfectly arranged and it photographed well. She did not charge any staging consultation nor set up fees, which would have cost us thousands of dollars. We have learned that there were many visitors to our first open house and many fell in love with the condo unit. We have received multiple offers within few days. She is very courteous and professional and is not afraid to be direct and tell us all the facts and truth. We are very impressed and grateful working with her. When the buyer of our preference backed out after the escrow opened with no clear reasons, she acted very quickly. She scheduled another open house within a day
and contacted all the people’s agents who had previously made offers. Due to her amazing marketing skills, she helped us get more buyers offers and we ended up with much higher selling price. I know we could not have done it without her attention to details. Her integrity, work ethics and a genuine desire to serve her customers ire outstanding. I would recommend Christine lso wholeheartedly, to anyone who needs a real professional agent.

“Recently we had the pleasure of working with Christine lso of ISO Realty to purchase our first home. While we experienced several challenges along the way, she kept us informed at every step. Her approach and expertise in a complex area was much appreciated. Highly recommended!”

“Christine was the listing agent for the house I just sold. I was looking for a new house while trying to sell my own. I needed to sell the house quickly in order to successfully bid for any home in today’s market. Christine understood my needs. She found me a buyer within a day, before the house was even put on market. It was nothing short of magic! Because of that, I was able to get my dream house. I am most grateful for her effort. Christine is extremely resourceful and very responsive. If you ever want to sell your house, she is the agent to call. By the way, even though I didn’t get to use it, but based on what I saw, Christine’s marketing team does wonderful photos. They realy make sure they are showing your property at its best.”

“As a first time buyer, Christine walked me through the entire home buying process. She was very responsive and helped connect me to a great lender. She made sure I understood what we were doing at each step of the process and made the closing process really smooth.”

“Christine provided a sense of security and comfort to us during the process of getting our new home. The communication was impeccable as every bit of information was made aware to us as they came up. The amount of dedication and focus Christine expressed persisted despite a predicament that arose. She held her position firmly on this transaction and was able to provide solutions instantaneously. Guidance was provided every step of the way and we were never left alone to question the probability of securing our home. Christine’s work ethic was especially displayed through her ability to work with multiple people simultaneously and accomplishing goals on a timely basis. We are more than satisfied with our experience with her and Mary Del Favero. In addition to being talented individuals, their teamwork really brings your dreams to reality.”

“Christine lso is the most skilled real estate agent. When we sold our condo, she worked for us. She also helped us with the purchase of our new house. She went above and beyond both times. She has provided us with expert guidance that has assisted us in managing the complex real estate selling and purchasing processes. She is well-versed in the real estate market in the San Fernando Valley. In this highly competitive market, she gave us valuable advice to help us select and purchase a house. Despite the fact that our offer was not the highest among the bidders, we won the bidding war for the house because she is always diligent in following up. Even though we had already known she has incredible skills working with other agents, she wowed us with her excellent follow-up. She made sure our offer was considered favorably, let the seller know how much we liked the house, and strongly recommended us as the best Furthermore, once our offer was accepted, she maintained close contact with the seller’s agent throughout the process. Her capability to interact with individuals is unparalleled. The collaboration helped the smooth and efficient completion of a month-long escrow process, resulting in a win-win situation for everybody. Without her tireless efforts, we would not be homeowners today. We are very grateful to work with Chris and her team. Chris is reliable, dedicated, and responsible. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is seeking a supportive and diligent real estate agent.”

“Christine helped my mom and her siblings sell their childhood home, which was a very emotional and hard decision for them. Christine made the process easy, quick, and stress free. They could not stop raving about her so of course after that glowing review I had to ask her to help my family and I find our forever home. Christine was amazing! She really looks out for her clients and guided us step-by-step throughout the whole process. We found a house we loved on the first time out. Out of 15+ offers they chose ours! We weren’t the highest offer, but they chose us based on Christine’s reputation and her communication with the seller’s agent. Both the sellers and us agreed on a short escrow and Christine made sure that happened. Once again Chrstine guided us through the escrow process and continued to communicate with us and the seller’s agent to make sure we were all on the same page and moving forward for a quick escrow. There were issues with the appraisal, but Christine was on top of it. She provided the appraiser with the comps and really fought for us. She definitely had our best interests at heart and made it as stress free as possible for us. We highly recommend Christine to anyone buying or selling. Her reputation and years of experience speak for themselves. Thank you Christine for all your hard work, guidance, and for helping us find a beautiful home to raise our children. There are no words to express how grateful and happy we are to have a place to finally call our home.”

Chris is one of the most connected people that I have meet, she introduces her clients to the best resources. She is always true to her motto “My services go beyond call of duty”. Chris started by introducing me one of the best loan officers Ari Toosh. Once we got into purchasing / escrow process, she reviewed every single document and every single detail; there were times that I was not catching missing items; but as always Chris was the noticing them. She would fight for her clients benefits and make sure that they are getting the best deal available. After escrow was closed she introduce me to one of the best cleaning services, gardener, garage door maintenance service, locksmith, handyman. All I had to do was ask for help and she was always there for me, making easier for me and my transition into new home has been almost stress free. She is a person of integrity, dedication and believes in hard word. She goes beyond her duty to see that her clients get the best.I loved working with Chris and next time I am in the market for a new property, she will be my agent.

“Christine lso is an amazing real estate agent. We were introduced by a mutual friend. Upon signing her, she has completely transformed my ordinary 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in Encino, California, into a gorgeous unit. She has proactively worked with the tenants and helped in the smooth transition of the move out. There were many repairs that were necessary, but she had many resources with great rates and helped me find the right crew to complete the job in a professional and timely manner. Christine had many references of painters, clean-up crew and a handyman, who helped transform a once an ordinary condo into an immaculate designer pad with the use of virtual staging; this resulted in 9 offers in the first three days on the market. With her great negotiation skills, Christine got the best terms for me and closed escrow without a hitch. I highly recommend her to anybody who is looking to sell their home.”

“Christine is an amazing agent! We are delighted that she has helped us in securing this townhouse. We have 2 doggies and wanted to find a place with patios. Christine immediately introduced us to Manny Fierroz from Wells Fargo to help us with the loan. She helped us find a perfect townhouse and negotiated on a tough transaction, since the seller was out of state and not cooperative. Christine never gave up and we are closing escrow now! You will be very delighted to work with Christine, she is dependable and trustworthy!”

“It was a delight to work with Christine lso, as our real estate to sell my mother’s property which she has lived for 40 years. She was very professional and her service to her client was impeccable. She informed my mother who was the seller, every step of the way all the paperwork, inspections and spent a lot of time assuring my mother throughout the transition. It was a challenge for her since my mother did not want the property on MLS nor have any signs put up in front of the house. Regardless of the various challenges she brought in many cash investors and we went with one inves-tor that closed in 15 days, as is condition. Christine went beyond the call of duty for she was a full service agent and spoke to my mother on daily basis updating her of all the issues that were pending. She is warm, caring and very knowledgeable. She is almost like our family now. All of us children appreciate everything she did. We highly rec om mend her as a real estate agent for life.”

“Working with Christine lso was a great experience. I represented the investor client and it was a delight having Christine represent the Seller. She was on top of a II the paperworks, including the solar panel lease transfer, since she was very knowledgeable in working with them in the past. She is very aware of investor’s objectives, especially on a flipping homes. She made it a win-win experience for both the seller and the investor, by renting back the house to the seller. She made sure the transition was smooth for all parties. I highly recommend Christine to any investors, for she is very knowledgeable of various aspects of investment strategies and can help accommodate the needs and wants of investors effectively.”

“Our house has just sold after only 7 days on the market thanks to the wonderful Ms. Christine lso. She did an amazing job transforming our 4 bed, 2 bath houses into a beautifully designed interior. One of the free services Ms. lso offers is house staging, which really makes a huge difference, and saves the seller a few thousand dollars. Another free service is door knocking. Ms. lso is an old school reliable professional, who works hard for her clients under all circumstances. She knocked on over 100 doors around our neighborhood — in the rain. She is an unstoppable force, with a great personality, positive energy and a friendly demeanor. Her efforts led to 17 written offers in three days, and we closed above asking price in seven days. Open house was a big success with over 55 groups of people showing up. Ms. lso is an expert and very resourceful. She guides you through the entire process and makes it as easy as possible. We highly recommend her to anyone who’s looking for an honest, friendly and a reliable real estate agent.”

“I was introduced to Christine from a realtor in the bay area. My realtor called the LA office and asked for the best realtor they had, and Christine’s name was first on the list. Christine helped me through my very picky process of identifying the perfect house for me not only for today, but for many years to come. She was extremely caring, helpful, and patient with me as we searched for the ideal home. When we visited houses, Christine walked me through her thoughts and educated me on aspects I wouldn’t have normally considered. When we finally found the right place, she fought hard for me and made sure that my offer was chosen. If you are looking for someone to truly treat you like a gem, Christine is the realtor for you! Thank you, Christine!”

“We are delighted to have found our realtor, Christine lso. We went to see an Open House and met her there. The house wasn’t right for us, but she listened carefully to our needs. She knows the inventory of this market very well and immediately pointed us to another home, which was better suited for our needs. We instantly made an offer. There were multiple offers, but through her great negotiation skills, she was able to get us on top and we immediately opened escrow. We do not use docu-sign well, so she came to our place each time to explain all the documents patiently and allowed us to ink sign the documents. She goes beyond what other agents would do. She also helped find good vendors for us. There were many challenges with our lender Wells Fargo, but Christine was able to help us through the maze and now we are closing escrow on our dream house and moving in! Thanks to Christine’s hard work, our dream has become a reality. Christine has watched over us every step of the way! We will definitely refer her to our friends,as our realtor for life! Our American Dream was to own a house where my wife Mae and I could retire, since we are now empty nesters. We look forward to enjoying our new home hopefully one day with our grandchildren. Christine’s motto is, YOUR DREAM IS MY COMMITMENT and she means every word!”

“Christine lso offers a level of client service that is rarely seen in residential real estate. Our recent purchase of a condominium in Los Angeles was fast and efficient, and Christine equipped us with all the important information and critical details we needed for a seamless transaction. Thank you Christine for all your efforts and for going the extra mile for us!”

“We found Christine completely by accident in one of the open houses that we went to. The first time we met we already bonded and we felt that she’s the right person for us. Christine is an answered prayer to us! We saw her how she dealt with people during that open house. Christine did an outstanding job handling the sale of our house. We still couldn’t believe that she was able to close everything in a short period of time and without putting it out on the market. Christine also did an excellent job in finding our new house close to the school that we want our kids to go to. She gave us excellent advice on home values and comparison and we had every faith in her ability to find us the right house and she DID!! One more thing that I love about Christine is her being artistic, she staged our house and the outcome was WOW! and excellent. Christine, you amazed us with your dedication, commitment and loyalty to your clients. From day one until the end she did not miss to update us everything. It was a very pleasant experience for us and I would work with Christine again in the future. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone! Thank you for being a part of our family and this YOU to us.”

“From the moment we began the search for our new home, Christine took us under her wing like we were family. It was our first home purchase, and there is no way we couId have done it without her. We were on a very tight schedule, with a baby on the way. Christine offered to go”door-knocking” to make sure we found a home for our growing family. With her help we made an offer on the first house we looked at, and our offer was accepted over five others. The selling agent would later tell us that Christine was big part of the reason we got the house. Escrow began with a flood of paperwork and inspections. For first time homebuyers, this was quite overwhelming but Christine led us through the craziness with ease, honesty & a thorough knowledge of everything we were facing. When we were out of town or unavailable to be on site, she was there. When we needed something done asap with no notice, she pulled it off. If we could sum up our experience with Christine, it would be “above and beyond.” Christine – thank you for making the entire home buying process manageable and dare we say, fun!”

“Christine is an amazing realtor. As first-time home buyers, we are glad to have Christine guiding us through the journey. She gave us practical suggestions and useful tips. There is no such thing as the perfect house, but Christine is managed to find a home that is perfect for you. She’s been such a joy to work with and extremely helpful along the way. Thanks to Christine, we are finally settling down!”

“We had a great experience working with Christine lso selling our house in Venice! Personable and professional, she had the kind of positive attitude that made even the complicated process of selling a house feel easier and less stressful. She offered us great advice on how to prepare the house for showing, marketed it well, and was there to present it to prospective buyers in the best light. Even in a slow market she was able to find many qualified prospects. And uniquely, she was able to arrange for House & Garden Television (HGTV) to use our house in an episode of their house-hunting show about a young couple touring HOUSES TO BUY in the Venice area. Ours was prominently featured, and looked great! We don’t know whether this TV appearance was a factor, but in any case Chris closed a deal with a great purchaser to buy our house much sooner than we had expected. We recommend Christine to anyone looking to sell their house!”

“This is a formal letter of recommendation for our broker, Ms Christine lso. Meeting her was a fortuitious happenstance: she was “door knocking” in our neighborhood about the same time we had decided to
relocate to Tennessee, and had to sell both our home and our son’s townhouse. We decided to list with her on a whim, since she appeared to be very much “on the ball” and trusted her marketing skills. We were
not disappointed. Our home sold within eight days after listing. Ms. lso did a GREAT JOB in advertising and staging it and the three open houses she held during the eight days period were wildly successful. But
the highest value Ms. lso brought to the table was during the time of adversity. Our son’s home also in escrow within two weeks. The buyers however were investors who changed their minds suddenly and without
giving ca use, nine days before closing. Ms. lso took the event very personally. She immediately relisted, contacted all potential buyers who had previously been interested.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Christine lso in buying and selling my home. Buying my home was a stressful ordeal, with surprises and loop-holes that we couldn’t have predicted, and Christine helped and supported me during the entire process. Christine protected my interests, time, and money, and she truly fought for me, a first time homebuyer. When I decided to sell my home, I didn’t hesitate in contacting Christine again. I’m living in Northern California now, but I’ve been involved in every step, thanks to Christine. She keeps me up to date on everything, and she’s always available to me. Christine has gone above and beyond to help me, including finding repair people, picking up smoke detectors, and even collecting all of my old mail and sending it to me. These are things she doesn’t have to do, but she does them anyway to make my life easier. That quality isn’t easy to find in an agent. I want to say thank you to Christine for all of her help, support, and protection. It’s been such a comfort to know that I have her looking out for me. Buying or selling a home can be a stressful and overwhelming process. It’s important to have an agent that is trustworthy and reliable, and I’ve had that with Christine lso.”

Chris was attentive to all my needs and had all the necessary contacts to expedite the purchase of my home. Chris was there every step of the way, especially helpful since I had been out of town during much of the process. She made sure nothing fell through the cracks and was in constant contact with me. Thank you for making the purchase of my home go smoothly and painlessly as possible. I very much appreciate all you help!!!”

“Christine was phenomenal! After searching for a home for months by ourselves, my wife and I decided to give Christine a shot to find us a home that would suit our needs. We met her on a Saturday morning and she took carefu I notes of exactly what we were looking for in a home. After narrowing down our preferences, she took us to 3 homes that evening and we actually found the one that was perfect for us! We submitted the offer the next day, and after a little haggling with the help of Christine, we had our offer accepted a few days later at the price we wanted! The listing agent in our case tried to make everything so difficult but with Christine’s help, it turned out to be one smooth transaction. She works late, responds to you quickly, and keeps you in the loop at all times. Super fabulous realtor. Thanks for all your help Christine!”

“We feel lucky that we met a fantastic person like Christine lso, she is the best! We have looking for a home for over few months now, visiting all the open houses around but unable to decide on any property. One day when we happened to visit one of the opens houses staged by Christine. It was almost the end time for the open house, but Christine welcomed us with all the excitement and helped in touring the home. A thorough follow up afterwards and providing all the information about the home was something we really liked about Christine. Complete details, honest declarations related to property made us trust Christine more and more. Guiding us from time and time and making sure the home fits our needs all the time. We are so happy to say that our home deal is complete and successful today!! Can’t thank Christine enough. We appreciate all her help and recommend her strongly. Thank you!”

“My husband and I met Christine lso by chance at an open house she was holding. I was drawn to her because of her positive energy and the way she was selling the home to all the potential buyers. She was so professional and friendly that we connected immediately, and she left a lasting impression on me. I said to myself “This is exactly who I need to sell my house for me”. So we did just that! We met with her two days later and signed on with her to list our property in Burbank, CA. Christine came into our home, took charge and gave us direction on what we needed to do in order to sell our house. Our house sold 6 days after listing! She did an AMAZING job advertising and threw in staging for free! She has a great eye for design and it shows when she stages and makes your home even more beautiful than it already is. We held One Open House and sold it 5 days later! We are now in escrow and owe it to all to Christine for her Enthusiasm, Professional Service and Expertise in the smooth sale of our home. She truly provides EXCELLENT service and explains the process completely from A to Z. She is an AMAZING agent and an extremely hard worker! We appreciate all her hard work and excellent service and will recommend Christine to all our friends and family!”

“It was a delight to work with Christine lso, as a real estate agent. We met at her open house and she followed up right away and we connected. She really listened to our needs and was proactive in showing us homes immediately; I was expecting a baby in couple of months. We were delighted when we found our dream home in a new development area in Santa Clarita within couple of weeks. Christine encouraged and educated us – being the first time buyers in maximizing the return of our investment for the future. She also helped us with the room decor for the new baby’s room. She also hired unpackers as a gift to help us, since we just had the baby. Christine is the total package; she goes beyond what a normal agent will do. She cares for her clients and makes sure that we are taken care of. .. especially during our stressful times, in this case, the birth of our baby and moving in, all in the same week!!”

“To anyone in need of a very professional realtor, I would certainly recommend Ms. lso. She is professional, diligent, and a pleasant person with whom to work. She managed the sales process in a timely manner, kept me informed at every junction along the way while minimizing the need for my time /evolvement. I would definitely use her realtor service again at a future date. Thank You again Christine…Appreciate all your hard work.”

“Christine was a diligent hard worker. She determined what needed to be modified with the house, such as all paint inside and out, new wood flooring throughout the house, removal of furniture and personal belongings to stage the house. We had an amazing first Open House, bringing in 75 prospective buyers, resulting in 20 written offers within 2 days. Escrow was opened after 3 days and the inspection was scheduled within 2 days after that. I am impressed with how fast the offers came in. You have a keen awareness to service excellence and you are a very good role model by providing excellent service. I am very impressed with your quick reactions to my requests, explaining each process thoroughly, and keeping me informed. You kept your promise of providing me bids that fit my criteria. I truly appreciate all your efforts and excellent service!”

“Christine lso is the best! She was truly a godsend for me and my family. My wife and I had been looking for a house closer to my office for almost a year before we met Christine. During that time, we worked with several other agents without success. That all changed the moment we met Christine. Within two months, we had sold our house above the asking price, and we had the keys to our new dream home in a great neighborhood. Here are the things that set Christine apart from other agents: ( 1) Transparency in communication. Christine was proactive about keeping us in the loop during every step of the process. She was also super responsive to whatever questions or requests we had and constantly kept us involved. (2) Attentiveness to our wants. When we first met Christine, she asked us for a list of our objectives/wants in the moving process. And then she geared all her energy into accomplishing the items on that list. Within two months, we had everything on the list we had said we wanted. We literally could not have imagined it going more smoothly. (3) True enthusiasm! We could tell Christine loves nothing more than delivering great results for her clients, and she is relentless in her pursuit of those results. She always went the extra mile, and her attention to every detail, no matter how seemingly small, was impressive. In short, I would wholeheartedly recommend Christine to anyone looking to relocate. Working with her was easily one of the best decisions I have made. She will be our real estate agent for life!”

“Working with Christine Iso, Keller Williams Realty, to purchase our Tarzana property made the entire buying process flow smoothly. Since we were first-time home buyers, she happily took the time to explain in-depth the purchase contract and each of the various disclosures to ensure we had an understanding of what exactly we were agreeing to and signing. Additionally, the home inspection and appraisal processes were made easy with the help of recommendations from Christine. Because of her knowledge and expertise, there was no concern about missing a deadline due to the fact that she made sure all paperwork was submitted in a timely fashion, which put us at ease. As co-buyers, Christine accommodated each of our busy schedules to make sure everyone was updated and on the same page. Keeping multiple buyers in the loop is no easy task, and for this we are thankful. Overall, we felt that we were working with a professional who had our best interests in mind. If you are looking for a dedicated and thorough real estate agent, then we would surely recommend Christine. Now it’s time for us to enjoy our new home!”

“Above and beyond” barely begins to describe what Christine delivers. Guidance in avoiding potential pitfalls is not the least of it. Making the sale process smooth and
transparent is her specialty. Her energy, positivity, support, and attention to detail assures her client that things will go well. She works hard for her clients,
applying her special touch with staging that brings out the wow factor in a home that might otherwise have seemed just ordinary.“Door-knocking”, postcards, social
media, virtual tour, networking…you name it – she does it all. With her savviness and expertise, Christine was able to get us full asking price for our house, after three weeks on the market. She helped us navigate through loads of documents and a barrage of inspections with ease and grace. We highly recommend Christine as real estate agent extraordinaire. Thank you, Christine.”

“Christine Iso is one of the most professional and hardworking agents. I met her at an open house to the house I purchased. Christine watched over my interest while I was traveling. Making every effort to make sure I was able to purchase this house. The entire time, she made sure I understood all the documentations at times thru an interpreter. Her Client Service is top notch, and I appreciate all her help and helping to secure my home. I highly recommend her to any buyers or sellers looking for a professional agent.”

“We met Christine when we first started looking for a home, to start our new lives as newly weds. She was the first person to respond to us and we loved her promptness. She showed us every house we wanted to see right away. When it became  evident that we first needed to sell our current property. Chris was our first “go to real estate agent.” She prepped our house by advising us the color to paint both interior, as well as  exterior; details of landscapting  for curb appeal. She had the crew to impliment all of our renovations. She decorated the house and virtually staged it. She door knocked all the neighbors to get  maximum exposure. She did everything in her power to get us into escrow. Thru her detail negociation skills, we found a qualifed buyer. We accepted an offer and  we are now closing  escrow, thanks to Christine Iso. She is an amazing agent, we absolutely love her! We couldn’t  ask for a more dedicated agent!”

“It was a pleasure working with Christine Iso, Keller Williams Realty.  I was frustrated with the search of finding the right home to buy and contact4ed her.  She immediately took action.  The first house I saw that I liked that just came up, she helped me be in escrow within 2 days.  Not only did she create a smooth transaction, she helped me to understand the documentation and negotiated the best terms for me in regards to getting the rent back from seller for 2 weeks.  She celebrated with me in person during the signing of the escrow with practical gifts that I could use. 

Above all, she donated 10% of her fees to the charity of my choice, the San Fernando Valley Japanese American Community Center!”

“Claire and I first met Christine Iso 4 years ago at an open house in Studio City.  We immediately noticed how she dealt with potential buyers, and she definitely left a lasting impression on us.  4 years later when we were finally ready to move into a house, we gave her a call.  We knew she would be attentive to our needs and get us exactly the house we were searching for. 

Without a doubt, she lived up to all our expectations and helped us find the house of our dreams.  She fought for us like a bulldog throughout the whole process and provided us with invaluable guidance to make sure we made smart decisions.  Ultimately, we were actually able to find the house we wanted after 1 week with Christine even though we had been looking for 4 years! 

Christine does everything she can to make the process smooth and easy to understand.  She always has your back, and we plan on giving her a call for all our real estate needs.  Christine is reliable, honest, easy to work with, and does everything in her power to satisfy her clients. 

Thanks Christine for all that you do and we’ll definitely be referring you to all our friends and family!”

“We met Christine at one of our neighbors’ open house that we attended. Christine made our viewing of the open house a very  comfortable experience with her friendly attitude.  The first time we met with her,  we didn’t have any  plans to lease our house, which we have lived for the  past  30 years.  We knew that when we decided to relocate home, we wanted her to be our realtor.

Our house innovations were completed by a contractor whom  she has recommended.  We were very  grateful to be able to complete the project quickly. We attribute it to Christine’s good relationship with the contractor. Christine has accepted to help us with the  lease of our house, even though she usually specializes in “Sales” of houses.

Her staging  skills has  “Wow” us with exceptional  taste in decor selections. Christine did an outstanding job finding the tenants quickly.  Her diligence and integrity throughout the whole  process was beyond our expectations. The Tenant and we are all very happy, for she has created a win-win situations.

We’ll definitely recommend her for sale and lease of houses.  Thank you very much Christine!

When we decided to sell  our house, you can count on  us to have you as our realtor !!😊”

“From the moment we sat down with Christine to interview her to become our realtor, we were highly impressed. This was our first time selling a home, so we didn’t know what to expect and were a bit apprehensive. Christine made us feel comfortable right away with her caring demeanor. She came to our meeting absolutely prepared, enthusiastic, and ready to listen to our needs and to answer all of our questions. It was clear that Christine had done her homework. She presented all of the comps in our neighborhood and discussed each one in depth with us, which helped us to decide upon a reasonable asking price for our beloved home…

In addition, Christine offered to stage our home, free of charge. The furniture, art work, and decorative pieces that Christine came equipped with in order to stage our home was an added bonus!…. She was readily available and treated us like we truly mattered.

Because Christine is a valued member of her real estate community, she has created a network of fellow real estate agents who were eager to bring their clients to view our home… Within 48-hours of the house being placed on the market, we had accepted a full-price offer!

We are so grateful for Christine because not only is she an incredibly caring person who will treat her clients like family, but she is incredibly professional, hard-working, and will work around the clock to do whatever it takes to get the house sold.”

“Christine helped my mom and her siblings sell their childhood home, which was a very emotional and hard decision for them. Christine made the process easy, quick, and stress free. They could not stop raving about her so of course after that glowing review I had to ask her to help my family and I find our forever home. Christine was amazing! She really looks out for her clients and guided us step-by-step throughout the whole process.

 

We found a house we loved on the first time out. Out of 15+ offers they chose ours! We weren’t the highest offer, but they chose us based on Christine’s reputation and her communication with the seller’s agent. Both the sellers and us agreed on a short escrow and Christine made sure that happened. Once again Christine guided us through the escrow process and continued to communicate with us and the seller’s agent to make sure we were all on the same page and moving forward for a quick escrow. There were issues with the appraisal, but Christine was on top of it. She provided the appraiser with the comps and really fought for us. She definitely had our best interests at heart and made it as stress free as possible for us.

 

We highly recommend Christine to anyone buying or selling. Her reputation and years of experience speak for themselves. Thank you,  Christine for all your hard work, guidance, and for helping us find a beautiful home to raise our children. There are no words to express how grateful and happy we are to have a place to finally call our home.”

“We were referred to Christine Iso and we couldn’t be happier. 

We presented her with complications: my brother and I inherited a condo, so she had to deal with two owners, one in Northern California and one in Southern California. We had health issues, and Christine’s persistence in communication was both necessary and helpful. I had a previous commitment to travel abroad, so I gave power of attorney to my brother.

Christine established an excellent relationship with our valued, long-term tenant, who as a result supported Christine’s efforts to prepare the condo for the market. Christine went the extra mile with our tenant, helping her find a new home and obtaining the old lease to allow the smooth return of deposits. So with no drama, we were able to deliver the condo empty at closing.

Christine respected our desire to sell as-is, and not incur a costly renovation. She identified what was needed to make the condo ready for open houses, and expertly managed the process of having it cleaned, minor repairs made, and staging it while respecting the tenant’s time and personal property.

Christine also worked to make sure that my power of attorney was acceptable to the Title and Escrow agents.”

“Team Iso was fantastic to work with! Christine provided a strong background in real estate experience and her professionalism and sweetness really made working with her a joy and helped us sell our home quickly and for well over the asking price! We are so thrilled and thankful to have met Christine and had the pleasure of working with her and her team during this pivotal time in our lives!!”

“Moving for the first time in 13 years would have been daunting if I didn’t have Christine to help me navigate the process. She showed right from the start that she is extremely competent in real estate transactions. I loved how she quickly responded to all of my questions as well as her knowledge of the whole process from start to finish.  Christine stays focused on her client’s best interests and she guided me to an ideal new place I’m excited to call home.”

Christine staged our house and it went from “boring” to a “wow, beautiful” house in just one day! Not only that, she is an expert in marketing and negotiating. She worked so hard for our house and she had amazing energy doing it! I do not spend more than 3 seconds looking at un-staged homes online but our house stood out from the rest! I am so happy that Christine was our agent! I would recommend her all my friends and family!

“It was a delight working with Christine Iso, as our listing agent for our duplex by  Culver City.  We had two other agents working with us  prior to working with Christine, we were very  disappointed with them,  till she came along. Our closest family  friend has  highly recommended working with Christine Iso.   We are so grateful we did,  because she was extremely knowledgeable and  experienced as a commercial agent that she knew exactly how to market our duplex to investors.

She was  able to make our duplex enticing to the numerous investors and  buyers due to her skills as an excellent stager.  Due to her beautiful staging and virtual tour, it attracted lots of investor and buyers.    

We really appreciated Christine’s commitment to safety during the Covid-19 Pandemic. She made sure that  we abide by all guidelines, conducted all precaution to safety, with mask, PEAD forms, sanitization and blasting on   virtual tour to avoid unnecessary viewing.  She has    heavily  marketed it on all formats of social media in order to get   tons of exposures.

NO HOLDS BARRED,  she would   film  a personal video feature the duplex on YouTube, which has  helped  promoting  the property to local agents and to the  public.  She targeted to the local  builders  by calling,  sending all marketing materials relentlessly via printed mails and email blasts!    VERY IMPRESSIVE MARKETING SKILLS!   

Due to her reputation as an investment consultant,  she was able to connect with key investors and  the local builders in the area, which resulted to  multiple offers.  We were thrilled to end up with an ALL CASH offer, with NO APPRAISAL, NO LOANS and only a 7 DAYS INSPECTION PERIOD.  There were many challenges that she had to face during this transaction. We had a 1031 exchange, simultaneous close, and reverse  mortgage to deal with, which in no way made this an easy sale.  She overcame all of these issues with ease and kept us from worrying and stressing throughout the sale.  We got the best terms possible,  thanks to her unmatched negotiation skills.

My 94 year old mother has owned this duplex for 60 years. She was planning to sell the duplex,  so she could  move to Palm Desert to be close to me.  This was a very challenging transition, due to 60 years of furnitures and boxes, however, Christine, took the matter personally and treated my mother like her own.  She made sure that she had an additional 60 days for her transition without fee and even handled the furnitures left behind.  We couldn’t have done this without Christine overseeing all the details.  My mother adores her and calls Christine, “MY GOLDEN GIRL.” Christine would always say, “I will protect you like a mother hen.” 

After all that she has done for us, we truly consider her family. We trust her judgements and are so lucky that we can look to her for guidance and expertise.   We are fortunate to have Christine represent us and highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of selling their investment properties.”

I would like to voice my appreciation to Christine Iso, my Real Estate Agent, for how well she used her expertise on my behalf when I wanted to sell my home.

From the moment I signed with her to sell my home for me, she took charge. Within the first week she converted my “cluttered” bachelor’s house into a “spacious” family home. By combining her taste in furnishings with her knowledge of decorating she changed my house into an amazing model home. As a result, prospective buyers could see themselves living there.

We are now in escrow and I would like to point out that it was her professionalism coupled with enthusiasm and Real Estate expertise that sold my home. I can truthfully state that no one could have worked harder for me than she did.

I fully intend to recommend Christine Iso to my friends, relatives and business associates when they are ready to buy or sell their homes.

Christine Iso’s passion for her work, and her depth of caring for her clients make her an exceptional realtor. She is truly a professional, and guided us every step of the way through the purchase of our new HOME IN North Hills. Christine not only has in-depth knowledge of the San Fernando Valley, but quickly demonstrated an understanding of what we were looking for. She served as the ultimate matchmaker in finding us our new home. We were also very impressed by her integrity, and her diligence in following up on all our requests and questions. Many say they are available 24/7, but Christine took it to the next level by her responsiveness. We are very happy to recommend Christine Iso.

“One of the best decision that we have made, was to hire Christine Iso, as our Real Estate agent to sell my mother’s home. Christine has a Designation of Senior Specialist and that was helpful. Our mother has now moved into a retirement home and the house was too big to maintain by herself. Christine came highly recommended by our friend. We were aware of her great reputation as an agent with integrity, trustworthiness and above all, she puts her client’s interests first. She listened very carefully to our desires and she quickly put together a marketing plan. She gave us choices of various vendors and she oversaw the progress, from maid service to handyman. We were so surprised to get an offer so quickly. It was for ALL CASH, , NO CONTINGENCIES, (except physical which she insisted) and 15 DAYS CLOSE OF ESCROW. It went very smooth and fast, from beginning to end, without a hitch. Our family is delighted with her taking the lead and guiding us thru, every step of the way. She is amazing about communication and always gets back to us immediately. She took time to explain all the disclosures, so we were aware of what we were signing. We cannot say enough about her professionalism.

We highly recommend Christine to anyone, who is thinking of selling or buying their home, for you will be pleased with the outcome. She is a PRO!!”

“I’m happy to provide a testimonial for Christine Iso, who I had the pleasure of working with recently when renting a house. Christine was an exceptional professional who provided an outstanding level of service throughout the rental process. From the beginning, Christine was attentive, responsive, and genuinely interested in finding us the perfect home that met all of our needs. She went above and beyond to understand our preferences and was always available to answer our questions and concerns. She was knowledgeable about the market, the neighborhoods, and the properties, which made the process much easier for us. Throughout the rental process, Christine kept us informed and provided regular updates on the status of our application. She made sure that all necessary documents were in order, and she was always willing to provide additional support when needed. Overall, I was extremely impressed with Christine’s professionalism, her attention to detail, and her dedication to ensuring that we had a smooth and successful rental experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to rent a property, and I would certainly work with her again in the future. Thank you, Christine, for your outstanding service and support!”

“As business owners we know many real estate agents, yet we chose Christine because she knows how to handle business, meet deadlines and lead her team. In an industry where often times people are not straightforward, She was professional with everyone grinding day and night literally. She truly seeks to establish a longstanding relationship so after all these years we have become friends. You never know when you will want a piece of real estate in the city of Angels (or anywhere in CA) Whenever that is, she is your girl!”
