This was the first time my husband and I embarked on a real estate venture where we would need representation on both the selling and buying side. We came across an opportunity to get into a neighborhood that was not only ideal for our family situation, but fairly seamless in as much as, we were moving a mile down the street from our current home. It couldn’t be a more perfect situation. So on a whim one day we contacted Christine about the potential opportunity. Within two days she was at our home doing a complete and thorough assessment and spending time with us to ultimately start to make our dreams become a reality. Within just a few weeks we had our house on the market and simultaneously had a purchase and sale agreement on our dream home. Within a short time we sold our home and in final agreements on our new home. Given the dual transactions, everything ran very smoothly and it proved to be beneficial to have Christine represent us from both sides of the transaction, and always put our best interests at heart.
As we settle in our new home we are so grateful to Christine and her team for all the time she has spent with us and supporting us in our decisions and challenges along the way. Not only is she a true professional, she is extremely diligent, detail-oriented, thorough and educated on the real estate process. What we liked most about working with Christine was the comradery and team-like spirit where we felt a collaboration with her. She is honest, has integrity and true work ethic that made it not only easy to work with her, but gave us a sense of trust that you don’t always find in an agent. We would not hesitate to work with her again, but more importantly we found a new friend who we are looking forward to have at our housewarming. We wish Christine and her team continued success!

Christine Garabedian is someone you want to work with. She really goes to bat for you and works hard to get you the best deal she can. She’s reliable, responsible, detail oriented, and her suggestions are always spot on, especially her suggestions for staging the property. The video and photos she had made of the property were excellent, featuring all its best points. She even showed the house to everyone personally rather than having a drop box key for other brokers. We really appreciated the time she took to address all our concerns, answer our questions, and walk us through the whole process. We would use her services again with hesitation.

The Garabedian Group handled the sale of my 1bed Watertown condo with the utmost professionalism and service. Christine went above and beyond for a property many other agents would have been uninterested in due to the fact it was a small lower priced unit. She happily ran a successful open house and was always available for showings. The property sold very quickly because it was priced correctly. Other “local experts” were not as honest about the assessment and had I gone with them it would have meant a longer time on market and disappointing price reductions. Christine on the other hand did an accurate market assessment and gave fantastic advice resulting in a fast sale at a price I was happy with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an honest and professional agent.

It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Christine Garabedian of the Garabedian Group. I know Christine in the capacity of a real estate client of hers. I consider Christine an exceptional and caring real estate broker who went out of her way to service us in the purchase of our home. Not only did she help us to find and acquire the land but she also found us the finest developer and best price available to build the home of our dreams.
When building a new construction home there are so many details and Christine was always attentive at every step of the construction process and no detail was too small as not to attract her attention. Also no concern of us was too small for her and she made herself available to us regardless of time or situation. Her help, dedication, and vocation of service have made me count her as a true part of my family. I am convinced that her professionalism, experience and commitment to service are valuable assets in any endeavor she chooses in life, especially if the endeavor requires total commitment to service, such as real estate. I recommend Christine’s services anytime without hesitation, confident that any client she works will have his or her real estate needs fulfilled in complete satisfaction while gaining a friend during the process!

The rental search and leasing process can be tedious, even more so when a franchise corporation is involved. Christine was with us from the first viewing of our location right through the signing of the leasing agreement.
She is honest and genuine while professionally navigating the process. Whether we were dealing with the franchise headquarters or the town, in its sometimes very frustrating procedures, she was there. She was willing to help, to offer her knowledge and her time. Christine is kind but also a very strong, capable professional whom we thoroughly enjoyed working with. We wish more people in business could be like Christine.
We as business owners have a very simple philosophy; treat people the way you wish to be treated. There are not many in this world who actually work that way. Christine is one of those people you so rarely are fortunate enough to do business with.

My husband and I had tenants moving into our condo in Cambridge – so we were on a tight timeline to find a home. It was a stressful time – and Christine was with us each step of the way. She was patient, responsive, flexible, and as diligent as we were about finding the perfect property. She spent whole days with us touring homes in the Concord, Carlisle, Bedford area. She took such special care of all of our needs – from the inspection (we purchased a ~140 year old home so this was not an easy inspection!) to the closing (she watched our two-year-old daughter so we could sign the paperwork!). After we were settled in our new home, a beautiful bouquet of flowers came from Christine. This gesture exemplified our experience with her. We love our new home – and we are so appreciative for everything that Christine did to make it a reality for us.

We purchased our home in Medford with Christine’s help. The house we bought wasn’t on the market more than a week before we put it under agreement! She helped us be some of the first people through the door, which gave us an advantage to get our offer in that same day. Prior to making this offer we had seen so many homes and Christine kept us up to speed on what was coming onto the market and was always available to go with us to see so many different places. Which in our case, purchasing our house was so time sensitive had we not seen the house as quickly as we did, we probably would have missed our opportunity. We also purchased the house in an as-is condition and with the help of Garabedian Group’s construction team we were able to get a sense of how much we would need to put into the home before making our offer. Had we not had the real estate and construction expertise we wouldn’t have felt as comfortable as we did making an offer so quickly. We would highly recommend Christine Garabedian in the buying or selling process!

I am in the third season of working with Christine Garabedian on Real Estate for my Season Halloween Business, Halloween Express. She is a pleasure to work with as she takes a personal interest in my business. Her involvement does not end with the signed lease. Christine and her company are always there to help whenever the unexpected arises.
The temporary nature of my business creates challenges for me and for my landlord. Christine has provided guidance through the permitting process, has recommended vendors, referred employees and helped with small things. She has taken interest in my business when it is up and running. I look forward to many more years of working with Christine and Garabedian Group.
