Marc Paul
My first encounter with St. James + Canter was as a buyer of one of their listings. Cristie's easy going personality gave me the confidence to email her directly with questions about the property. Cristie always made herself available to me so she could answer my every question that I ended up talking to her more than the agent who represented me. I was so impressed with her work ethic and commitment to her career th ...

Judy Hilsinger
Cristie is the consummate real estate agent. She was engaged in every aspect of our condo sale. She was involved constantly with the escrow people, the seller's agent, the title insurance company and all the inspectors and made sure that our tenant was not disturbed in anyway. Every time we called her she answered the phone and try to solve the problems and put our concerns at rest. My husband and I feel very fort ...
Private Client
Cristie and her team handled the sale of my Mom's property in Bel Air. We choose her because she had given us a market value estimate five years previously. We asked her to keep in touch and she professionally and courteously did so - without any sales pressure at all - kept in touch. She is very responsive and knowledgeable about local values, price setting, negotiations and the complexities of California disc ...
Ken Friedman
Cristie is hands down my favorite realtor. She is so dependable and trustworthy. I have dealt with her for years through buying, selling, and renting. For the last transaction, she sold my condo quickly for over asking price and helped me through the entire process. With every transaction, she treated me like I had a multi-million dollar property, which I definitely did not. I am so grateful and cannot recommend her ...

They have a very positive “can d ...

My first encounter with St. James + Canter was as a buyer of one of their listings. After our first meeting, I felt comfortable emailing them directly with questions about the property (vs. my own agent). They always made themselves available to me so they could answer my every question. I honestly ended up talking to them more than the agent who represented me. I was so impressed with their work ethic and commitment ...
David Labonte
My opinion of working with realtors was forever altered (in a very good way) after Markus Canter and Cristie St. James, of St. James + Canter, sold my home. My previous realtor experiences, regarding my personal residences, were mostly unpleasant and negative. Changing that perception was a major factor in who I chose to work with this time. The house I needed to sell was very unique and challenging; from the geogr ...
