"The Jelmberg team was excellent! Especially my agent Christine Sparks. Very professional throughout the entire process of both my selling, and buying. I hardly had to lift a finger, they did everything! If you want to buy and/or sell, this is the team to use!" Adam Levy
"My husband and I were fortunate enough to be connected with Christine as we were looking to buy a second home in the desert. Living in LA and only visiting the desert from time to time we didn’t know the market or which area we would like best. Christine helped us narrow our search and prioritize the things that mattered most to us. Her expertise and guidance were first rate and what makes working with her so special is the warmth and connection she showed throughout our search. We found our dream home in Palm Springs within a few weeks. There was a lot of interest in the home. Christine guided us through this process as well and helped us get the house through expert negotiations. Anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the desert would be well-advised to work with Christine. She has our highest recommendation and daily gratitude." The Merricks
"Christine was invaluable in our search for a new home in the Coachella Valley. Because we were relocating from the east coast we didn’t know the nuances of various areas but Christine patiently toured us through numerous communities in the desert which allowed us to decide where to focus our search. Once we determined where to look she was happy to visit properties that she thought we might like or that we identified on the internet. This was particularly helpful given the competitive nature of the current market and the fact that we were so far away. When we found the home for us Christine guided us through the process in a way that ensured our offer was accepted and we couldn’t be happier. We certainly recommend Christine without reservations for anyone looking to buy in the Coachella Valley." Dr. & Mrs. Thorp
“We knew right away that Christine was the perfect person. She took lots of time with us and her attention to detail and persistence were outstanding. She was patient and really went the extra mile for us, taking time to carefully explain complex paperwork. Her enthusiasm for her work really shows…not just in initial efforts but as a continuing resource for us afterward. We happily recommend Christine to everyone." M/M. Dzulynsky
" We recently had the pleasure of working with Christine in this crazy market! We were from out of town searching for a home here in the Coachella Valley to be closer to parents. We gave her a tall list of what we needed and we were able to get that! She went above and beyond to help us with this search and her patience with us was outstanding, while we were traveling back and forth and sending us the virtual tours to help get these homes narrowed down ! She has a great eye for design and finds good layouts in homes with personality and charm! We highly recommend Christine and will use her service in the future when the need arises!" M/M Jimenez
