Why Work With Me
After becoming a sales agent with Holiday Homes in 1986, and obtaining her Broker license in 1990, Christie was pleased to be welcomed as a partner and co-owner of the firm in 2001. This was just the latest move in a long and successful real estate career on St. John dating from 1985 when Christie and her sons sailed into Cruz Bay. She quickly vaulted into the ranks of top producers on the island and has skillfully juggled the demands of raising twins, community service, and the many hours spent helping visitors to become island wise and fulfill their dream of ownership on St. John.
Always in the forefront of Realtor education, she has taken extensive courses and qualified for the following designations: Certified Residential Specialist; Certified Residential Brokerage; Graduate Realtor Institute; Resort & 2nd Home Specialist; Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist; Certified International Property Specialist; Transnational Referral Certification; and she is currently pursuing NAR’s “Green” Designation doing the environmental specialist training. She has also completed the courses for the ACREDITED BUYERS REPRESENTATIVE certification so can represent clients as a BUYERS AGENT.
Christie is a Paul Harris Fellow Rotarian, a member of the board of Island Green Living/Builders Association, serves on two homeowners’ associations boards, and is on the Advisory Committee for the Board of Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park. She still loves to sail (now on other peoples’ boats) and is a past director of the St. John Yacht Club. As a sailor, scuba diver, avid snorkeler, hiker, skier (her sons now live in Colorado), and world traveler, Christie is an active outdoor enthusiast. She was St. John Chairperson for the VI’s America’s Cup Challenge (with a trip to NZ!) and in 1999 she bicycled across America from Seattle, Washington, to Washington DC for the American Lung Association.
Some of her achievements have included being President of Virgin Islands Territorial Association of Realtors for two terms, also being President of the the St. John Board of Realtors for two terms, and she has contributed over 10 years of service on the board of directors for the National Association of Realtors. In 2012 Christie was appointed by our Governor to the VI Real Estate Commission and now serves as its Vice Chair. Her real estate highlights have included many consistent years as top producer on St. John, and sales of the simplest as well as highest end properties throughout the island. Christie has truly helped hundreds of people with their real estate needs on our island in the sun. Her commitment to her clients and customers, and her enthusiasm for their real estate needs is well known.
