Christine Thares, of Coldwell Banker Realty, knows that selling or buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make, and she is by her clients' side every step of the way.
Most of Christine's listings are the homes of friends and family of her previous clients. And those previous clients? Also referrals from satisfied sellers and buyers. Clients refer Christine not only because of her expertise as a realtor, but because they feel safe in her hands.
When you work with Christine, you are her top priority and she is your champion. Christine puts her extensive knowledge of Northwest Bergen County to work for you. She has built a team of trusted colleagues to manage every aspect of a transaction from beginning to end, while her savvy negotiations help sellers maximize their home's value and help buyers get the most for their money.
Christine pairs her knowledge and experience with a contagious energy, positive attitude, and passion for her clients that shine through in each and every relationship she builds with sellers and buyers.

She works with lawyers and title experts to ensure that sellers are protected, while advising when asked about potential options for sellers' next phase of life.
