Christina is an amazing agent! She explained step by step the process and really helped me feel comfortable with going through selling my home. I have never sold a home before and had lots of questions which she answered in ways I understood. Christina always took the time to explain my options to sell, so I could get my home sold fast. I highly recommend Christina Esala and will gladly have her as an agent again.

She traveled several miles without a blink of an eye for AND No area was ever too far away for Christina to travel for us?.ALWAYS BEING OUR EARS AND EYES?Christina was always in GREAT Communication at any time of the day or eve, always being a TRUE PROFESSIONAL! We had a COMPLETE PROFESSIONAL ALL STAR TEAM in every step, from the onset of finding Our New Perfect Home with Christina, to the completion of the closing. Christina's referral of using an Amazing Sr. Loan Officer "Joseph Small" and Also Amazing Loan Officer Assistant "Kathy Taylor" were very essential to our financing with our new Lender.

Christina Esala is a talented professional and deserves more than 5 stars. She knew exactly what I wanted and exactly what my family and I needed. She went above and beyond to assist me from day 1. Christina found me a beautiful home, in the area I requested, in a great price range, and it had all the amenities I wanted, plus some. I was given a date and we closed and recorded on time. Buying a home can be a stressful and exciting time. Christina made things as stress free as possible so I was able to enjoy the excitement of purchasing my first home. I recommend her to the fullest and I know when I am ready for another investment she will be the ONLY one for me. Less ... More

Christina is amazing!! She not only helped us find and buy a house in Tucson she recommended a wonderful Realtor in California that sold our house in 30 days! Christina is attentive and understands your needs. She was also very helpful in recommending contractors to help us tailor our new home to our needs. If you need a realtor that understands not just the housing market in Tucson but nationwide then Christina is the realtor for you!!

Christina is in a word AMAZING. The amount of patience, understanding, and genuine care that she put into helping us buy a home is absolutely unsurpassed. Buying a home is a long complicated stressful process that Christina made so easy. Her knowledge of the area, the VA loan process, and the military is vast and incredibly helpful. We couldn't have asked for someone better to help us.

Helped me buy home
Christina Esala and Jim Halsted were amazing. I originally met Christina not in the market for a home but rather shopping for plants. After looking when I was in the home market, and being blown off by another agent, I called Christina. She showed me the house immediately, dropped what she was doing, and even showed me a few more on our way home. I briefly told her what I was looking for and she went from there showing me lots of great houses fitting my desires. Being picky, it took me almost a year to find the perfect home. Her and Jim were always available and if not, had someone to help. They negotiated more than I could have imagined, even over negotiated and my lender asked many times if that was correct because he was so amazed. We found the perfect home with Christina and Jim!

Christina knew exactly what kind of home I was looking for and found it within hours of our first meeting! She was honest and upfront about not only the positives of the area I was thinking of moving into, but also the negatives? then left it to me to decide with no pressure whatsoever. Christina is also a walkthrough expert and found many things that I'd missed. She really knows what to look for! Her assistance to me has continued long after the papers were signed. When I had trouble getting my internet installed she hooked me up with someone who immediately got me a fast install date. She's always responded quickly to my MANY questions and has offered to help personally or at the very least, find someone who could help me! I was not only lucky to choose Christina Esala as a real estate agent? I am also happy to say that I am now her new neighbor! Thanks for everything, Christina! As a first-time buyer, you helped make this a quick and painless transition! Less ... More

Chtistina and her father Luther have gone above and beyond what could be expected of them in the sale of my home. They never gave up on the sale even as buyers backed out, bank threw hurdles, or even when I gave up. They handled my short sale to completion even though it required more work than I felt it could possibly be worth to them. If you want someone on your side with the ups and downs that come with reality give Christina a call.

Christina Esala is just so awesome! She listed my condo and within the same week it had an offer, and sold my property. While selling my property she was also showing me and my wife new homes. With Christina's help we will be closing on our new home at the end of this month. Christina is always prompt to answer questions, and stayed with us the whole time. Christina Esala is above awesome.

Choosing to work with Christina Esala as our realtor was one of the best decisions we ever made. My wife and I do not live in the U.S. but are planning to relocate in Tucson. With that in mind, all of the difficult legwork in finding a house had to be done by a realtor who was willing to do much more than with people living in Tucson. We needed a person who was willing to go far beyond showing homes and finalizing the deal. We needed someone to actually drive to all of the properties we saw online that interested us, photograph them and write detailed reports about the properties-even bid on them on our behalf. Christina was up to that task and much more. She would do everything we asked of her, which was a lot. She simply found ways to fulfill our requests. She not only proved how efficient and effective she was as an realtor/ business-person, but also proved to be an excellent communicator, which was invaluable to us, as we could not see the properties ourselves. She truly had our best interests at heart and would be surprisingly honest when she saw things about properties she thought we might not like. She never tried to sell us anything. Instead, she worked feverishly to find something we were truly happy with. Finally, after being out-bid on several properties we finally found a home, and our bid was accepted. This whole process took about six months. Her professionalism and as already mentioned, her superb communication skills not only made our house-hunting pain-free, but will certainly make potential buyers feel confident to have Christina Esala and ?Realty Executives Tucson Elite? work for them. I would not hesitate in recommending her and her team to anyone interested in buying/selling a home. She truly was/is a joy to work with. Less ... More

If this gal can't find you a home you'll love, no one can! As first time home buyers, my husband and I expected a long, stressful experience. After contacting multiple Real Estate Agents, I thought we were going to be right. Exhausted, we chose to contact the next Agent we came across on Trulia, and if it didn't work out, we were going to call it quits. When Christina answered her phone, we immediately knew she was going to be the one who would find us the home of our dreams. She was bubbly, intelligent, professional, and most importantly, eager to work! Within minutes, she emailed us a list of homes that offered appealing variety, and we had set up an appointment to view some properties. If she already sounds impressive, just wait until you meet her in person! Christina made time to show us homes at our convenience. Being Active Duty military members, this was highly appreciated and valued, since our schedules are often unpredictable. She was never late, and she always brought a smile wherever we went. After exploring many wonderful home options, we finally found the one! Christina helped us understand the process, and she stuck by our side until it became ours. We are very blessed to have worked with Christina. She is excellent at customer service, and she is very talented in her career. You will not be disappointed with this lady and her team! She not only became our Agent, she became a great friend. Less ... More

My wife and I were just starting to look to buy our first home in August and were so lucky we got matched up with Christina. From day 1 she took full interest in what we were looking for, what our must haves were and what area we wanted to live. She is very knowledgable in all areas of real estate, and helped teach us important information along the way. Once we found the house we loved, she went to bat for us from the first offer, to counter offers, to the inspection until the final offer and through the whole process made us feel like we were her number one client. She will drive to meet you where ever you want to get paperwork done and always meets deadlines. Even items or things that come up that aren't part of her job she'll find out the answers or will recommend contacts for you. My wife and I wouldn't be owning our first home if it wasn't for Christina and strongly recommend her as an agent to anyone who is looking. She'll find you the house of your dreams and will be there every step of the way until you get the keys. She began just as our agent, but turned into our friend. Less ... More

Christina went above and beyond with the selling of our house in Tucson. We live out of state and were worried about how were were going to get any possible contract repairs, or house services done. Christina took care of everything from listing it, to finding a buyer, contracting repairs and inspections and seeing all the paperwork was taken care of in the end. Thank you Christina for the great job!

It was not an easy task to find our perfect new home!! We were really impressed with the knowledge and guidance that Christina provided us along the way. I have already recommended Christina to co-worker for all their real estate needs. Christina is a very patient and understanding realtor. She took time to understand what our needs were and did not try to sway us another direction for her benefit, she looks out for her clients interest and does not have a personal agenda. That is hard to find in a a realtor today. We highly recommend Christina and Luther to assist in your search for your new home!! Thank you Christina for EVERYTHING!!! Jason and Kelly Less ... More

Christina and her team are so good that I tell people that if they are looking to buy or sell a house they are making a mistake if they do not call her. One 5 minute phone call will put you at ease. If Christina cannot help she will refer you to someone who can. Christina goes through extraordinary lengths to help anyone and everyone she meets. Her motivations run far deeper than making a sale. I've seen her work with people for hours because they were in a bind and needed advice. These reviews don't cut it, you have to make phone calls and your very first phone call should be to Christina and her team. Christina is a perfectionist and she has a real passion for what she does: HELP people buy and sell their homes. She is especially passionate about helping first-time home buyers. Without Christina there is simply no way I would have found the home I bought in December. She knew all the right people to help me through the process and she only deals with people she can personally vouch for. If you are looking for a realtor I can honestly tell you that calling Christina will put you on the right track. As far as I'm concerned the only mistake you make from this point on is the mistake of NOT calling her. She will not waste a moment of your time. Brian Agnew Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
Me and my wife were looking for our first home. We wanted a deal, something below market value. We focused our search on foreclosures and short sales, which most realtors seem to shy away from. Christina was very knowledgeable and very willing to work any type of deal from traditional, to shortsale, to foreclosures, to auctions without pressuring us for the easy commission. Christina was willing to put in whatever offer we asked without pressuring us to offer more (Although she would guide us when asked). She was great at negotiating on our behalf. After she spent 4 months managing a short sale offer for us, giving us weekly updates sometimes daily, she was still able to keep a positive attitude when the deal fell through (to no fault of her own). We eventually found a foreclosure in Iron Wood Reserve 10 - 20k under market value in move in ready condition. Although she helped us buy our primary residence she was always willing to answer any questions I had about investment properties and properties at auction. If she did not know the answer to a question she had the resources and connections get us the answers we needed. I admired her work ethic and her willingness to work around our schedule. I plan on buying investment properties in the near future and will definitely be contacting Christina for all my future real estate deals. Less ... More

Luther is a very dedicated, knowledgeable and honest person who provided top level service in sourcing, and, qualifying potential buyers for our property. The process from initial engagement through a successful closing transaction was seamless. Luther's strong point is his willingness to stay engaged as a selling agent and communications with his client. We would strongly recommend Luther based upon our experience with him!
