Tell us about your experience with
Stephen Christie

  • Stephen listed and sold my home

      Just read the review below and we just completed a transaction with Stephen and his team. We have sold many homes with Stephen and never encountered anything less than professional, very knowledgeable and communicated with us throughout the transaction. We have referred many others to Stephen. If you want the best possible experience, I would give Stephen a call. He has had the same team for the past 10 years. You will like to work with Jessica his assistant who also pays close attention to Details.

    • Stephen listed, but didn't sell, my home

        The Christie Group made the process of selling our home easy!! They were spot on to assisting us in our relocation and has solutions throughout the Listing and Escrow. We will be referring Stephen and his team to all our friends and family.

      • Stephen helped me buy a home

          WE LOVE CHRISTIE REALTY GROUP!! 🌟 After meeting with a few realtors who all missed the mark, we had the pleasure of coming across a highly decorated gentleman (who might not have normally given us the time of day due to our budget being lower than his average buyer) - nevertheless, Stephen Christie gave us a warm welcome and was incredibly knowledgeable about the market. He and his exceptional colleague, Janssen Turell, provided us with white glove service from start to finish. They steered us in the direction of our dream home, were excellent negotiators, and provided top notch assistance throughout the entire process. Janssen is a magician who fulfilled our requests at lightning speed and graciously performed our final walkthrough as we could not attend. We can’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done to make our experience better than we could have ever imagined. Highly recommended!! 👏

        • One of the most honest and trusted people we know. You will be in good hands with Stephen and his crew! They make buying a house simple and walk you through all the steps. We would not be where we are today with out the help of The Stephen Christie Group.

          - Harow44, Simi Valley
        • We bagan our home search not knowing what to expect and we were somewhat skeptical about what we would find and what we could afford. Kyle Bilharz of the Stephen Christie Group was instrumental in helping us purchase the right home in the right neighborhood. He was always available and treated us like we were his only client. Everyone was very helpful, knowledgable and professional and the end result was proof that we had the right real estate professionals in our corner. We couldn't be more pleased. A big thanks to all of you!!

          - David, Simi Valley
        • Stephen Christie is the best real estate agent around! With Stephen and his team, I felt as though we were completely taken care of in all aspects of the sale of our house and purchase of our new home. They are true professionals. Stephen put together a market analysis when we were selling our house. He also presented a complete marketing plan for the sale of our home. I was extremely impressed with all of his ideas.Thank you Stephen, Kyle and Jessica for everything! You made our dreams come true!

          - Jen Bordner, Simi Valley
        • Casually driving through neighborhoods looking to potentially move to a new area we came across a home listed by the Christi Realty Group. We decided the home was perfect and so was the Realtor. We used Stephen and his team to sell our home and bought the home he had listed.The entire process was flawless. The Christi group is beyond attentive & knowledgeable. Our family is not only grateful to have had impeccable first class service but considers Stephen and his team dear friends.

          - user78821376, Simi Valley
        • Stephen and his team was just flat out amazing. He listed my property and fought for the best sales price, in fact he sold my home for over the asking price. Then he found me the house of my dreams and negotiated it down to a final sales price well below what I thought we could get it for. The bottom line is he is my Agent for life and has been responsible for putting a huge amount of money in my pocket. Thank you Stephen and the entire Christie Realty Group.

          - Paul, Oxnard
        • We have sold two homes with this wonderful team and we have had a great experience each time. We highly recommend Kyle Bilharz and the Stephen Christie group.

        • Had an excellent experience with the Stephen Christie group while selling my home in Simi Valley. Kyle was very professional and caring in making sure I was comfortable through the entire process. Jessica in the office was attentive to every detail and always available for communication. I highly recommend this Real Estate company for if you plan on selling your existing home or purchasing a new one. A+++++

          - Lars Eacott, Simi Valley
        • Stephen is the best! He quickly understands what you are looking for and does not waste your time with houses that do not fit your needs. He is a superb business person and makes sure you are paying the fairest price possible. The support team led by Jessica makes sure every detail is taken care of. Besides all that, Stephen and Jessica are nice people with great senses of humor. We really enjoyed working with them.

          - Max, Thousand Oaks
        • Stephen Christie is a consummate professional with an impressive team and resources to bear. We used his team for a listing and was incredibly impressed by their market knowledge and marketing tactics. We were extremely pleased that he negotiated a selling price that was beyond our expectation. I highly recommend him and his team!

          - John Paglia, Simi Valley
        • Kyle was amazing to work with. Buying and selling a home at the same time was stressful. Kyle was extremely professional and calm under pressure. Throughout the process, we felt as if we had the A-Team on our side. I would highly recommend the Stephen Christie group.

          - Quasim, Simi Valley
        • Kyle Bilharz and the entire team over at the Stephen Christie group were outstanding in every way! Their responsiveness and attention to detail made our home selling and buying experience a very smooth and pleasant one. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Simi Valley area!

          - Jason Kavner, Simi Valley
        • Working with the Christie Realty Group, Kyle Bilharz Sales Partner in particular, has been a wonderful, rewarding experience. My wife and I have been looking for that special, unique house in the west end of Simi Valley for three years. We have used so many real estate agents that I lost count. We have been so frustrated with agents showing us houses that did not meet our criteria. When we first met Kyle at an open house he asked us to enter our name and contact info on his guest list. Since we didn't want to be bothered with follow up phone calls from him, I entered false contact info. However, after talking to him for an extended period of time, my wife and I realized that Kyle was professional, warm, honest, sincere and someone who we felt comfortable with. I apologized to him for entering false contact info and provided him with our real names and contact info. He went above and beyond what we expected from him to find us our dream home. Whenever we wanted to see a house that either he found or we found on the various housing websites he made himself available to show us the house. He always promptly returned our phone calls whenever we called him and left him a message. When we finally found our dream home, he ensured the buying process proceeded smoothly and thoroughly explained the process as we progressed though the various steps. With Kyle and the Christie Realty Group, we not only found a great real estate agent, but also found great new friends. They treated us as family. Kudos to the Christie Realty Group. When we finally have our old house ready for listing, we will contact Kyle.

          - user8073196, Simi Valley
        • The house buying/selling process is very stressful. Stephen, Jessica, and Janssen made it such an amazing experience. We had been looking on and off for 5 years with no luck, with various realtors, and then discovered the Christie Realty Group. I just thought after 5 years of ambigious looking we'd never find the home we were looking for. Within 2 months of working with them we found our dream home. The Christie team were amazing, helping us every step of the way. They invested so much time into us, and we felt truly like we were their only clients although we know that is far from the truth as they are very popular. We were able to turn around and sell our house with them, within a week of putting it on the market. They still text and call checking on us, a month after we've moved into our new home. A very class act realty group, and we were beyond impressed!!!

          - Gennah James, Simi Valley
        • Christie Realty Group was a pleasure to work with, yet again! We have been a client of Christie Realty Group for almost 20 years and during this time have been involved in a number of transactions. Stephen and his team are consistently honest, hard working, and committed to their new and existing client needs. The entire group is incredibly knowledgeable and responsive throughout the entire process.Thank you Christie Realty Group for continuing to impress us with your professionalism!

          - Endicotts, Simi Valley
        • Stephen, Janssen, and Jessica all did a fantastic job in helping my family to purchase our home. Each of the three representatives from the Stephen Christie group had their own levels of expertise and they made what could be a very stressful time into a rather exciting and enjoyable one. Not only did they walk us through each and every step of the purchasing process, they have continued to lend their support and knowledge after the close of escrow.

          - Riles, Simi Valley
        • Stephen not only sold my property in Wood Ranch for a very good price but also my Aunt's condo in West Los Angeles. I recommended him to her after my extremely good experience working with him. Both properties were sold quickly at good prices and Stephen made it simple for both of us. I have sold numerous properties over the years and enjoyed working with Stephen the best of all of them. If he had an office in Las Vegas I would continue to work with him. There's also the after sales follow up which he excelled at and he even sent birthday wishes to both of us long after the sales were completed.

          - Pete, Simi Valley
        • Absolutely amazing!!! We have never had a realtor who did so much for us both selling our home and buying a new one. The staff was extremely patient and helped us find the right fit. Truly the best!!

          - Ann McKinley, Santa Rosa
        • I have worked with The Christie Group twice for both sales and purchases. Both times my houses sold for over the asking price and within a week. You could not find a nicer and knowledgeable group to work with.

          - Terri, Simi Valley
        • We have bought and sold many homes. As many of you may know it can be quite a stressful process. Steven Christe and his team have all great people in place to ease the transaction(s). From the agents, to his assistants (Jessica), loan officers and escrow team, the process is smooth. We chose to sell and buy with Stephen Christe as our agents on both sides. Commmunication is over the top with them! Highly recommend...

          - Denise Morris, Agoura Hills
        • From market research, pricing, repair and staging suggestions, Stephen and Jessica did a fabulous job in selling our Mothers Condo. Because of their hard work and professionality we closed quickly and and above asking price. The Christie Group is a winning team!

          - Pam Wilkinson, Simi Valley
        • Superb service. Great team. Only have positive comments to make: responsive, friendly, fun and highly professional! They have been able to listen to us in order to clearly understand our needs. They have been available at all times to help and assist. The entire team made our life and move to the US much easier. Can only recommend Stephen and his team.

          - Christophe and Timothee, Los Angeles
        • The Christie Realty Group made our entire home buying and home selling experience the best!! We wouldn't ask for better representation and the service was off the charts.

          - Marwan Kashou, Westlake Village
        • In early 2014, my husband, Bill, and I had decided that we wanted to be closer to our family members out of state, so we went looking for an agent to sell our Wood Ranch home. We wanted someone who was knowledgeable about the Wood Ranch area and who had a good track record in selling homes in our neighborhood. We interviewed several agents, among them Stephen Christie. We were impressed with his attention to detail, his knowledge of the area and a plan for marketing our home. In April, 2014, we listed the home with Stephen at a price that allowed for the improvements we had made. Stephens crew were kind, prompt when manning open houses and personable to prospective buyers. At the time, the market has slowed a bit and, although we received interest and the home was aggressively marketed, we received only two offers during the next few months. Stephen kept us informed about the market and watched out for our interests, including checking out one of the potential buyers, finding that they were not serious, having not even listed their own home. After a small reduction in price, a well qualified buyer made an offer and our home sold for an acceptable price. Selling a home is never easy and is always a stressful time. We feel fortunate that we hired a well informed, competent professionals like Stephen Christie and his associates. It made our home selling experience better all around and we highly recommend Stephen to any potential buyer or seller.

          - Bill and Jean Ruecker, Simi Valley
        • The Christie Realy Group team were very welcoming to our family. We were new to the area and the entire team were very welcoming and helpful throughout the process. We told Stephen and Jansen exactly what we were willing to purchase the house for and he made it happen, a man of his word which is rare these days! Very pleased with the entire process! Jansen and Jessica were instrumental in the entire process so all and all a great team!!

          - Michael David, Simi Valley
        • Summary: If I'm going to buy or sell a home, I want it to be with someone who has a lot of experience and useful insight, works hard and is available, and is easy to get along with. Kyle Bilharz exceeds all these requirements for me.Kyle and the hard working team with Stephen Christie helped me purchase my first home (Simi Valley, May 2018). I cannot recommend them enough (and do to friends/coworkers).After starting my search with another realtor, Kyle and Janssen hooked me after first meeting with them. I was fairly demanding during the entire process (which involved dozens of houses and took about 4 months) but Kyle was there to help me every step of the way (meeting me at houses on my schedule and with little heads up, taking my calls/texts, etc., explaining endless questions/concerns I had).Kyle and I looked at dozens of houses and he always impressed me with his insight into the area (Simi Valley), knowledge of home construction/renovations, and his overall attitude (which was always positive).The story I tell potential home buyers/sellers about Kyle is the time I went to fill out some paperwork at their office (w/ Engel & Volkers in Westlake Village) early one morning around 7:30AM. As I went through the office (which houses other real estate teams) I figured they must be closed because no one was in.. until I reached Kyle's offices and his entire team was there. Here was Kyle and the Stephen Christie group working away when every other realtor in the building hadn't even showed up yet. This solidified my view of his/their great work ethic and I knew I was in good hands.Would/will work with again.

          - Kyle Shook, Simi Valley
        • I'm a first time home buyer and I could not be happier with my experience while working with the Christie Realty Group. From the first time we spoke to the final closing of the home, they have been there to answer any questions or concerns I had. Stephen and his team did an amazing job closing the deal on a home that had 7 offers on it! They made this entire process turn key for me. I would recommend Stephen to all of my friends and family in the future.You can feel good knowing that you are working with the best realty group in town!

          - zuser20170916165644596, Thousand Oaks
        • Stephen Christie went above and beyond to help us sell our house during a very stressful time, the Covid-19 pandemic. Everything they suggested to us prior to putting the house on the market helped guide us in making decisions as to how to make our home look the most appealing to potential buyers. We remodeled the master bathroom and all of the contractors we used were recommended by the Stephen Christie group. The work completed was high quality at a very fair price and we had the support of the Christie team of Jessica, Janssen, and Stephen during the entire process. We are quite pleased with the price Stephen negotiated for our home.

          - Kathy Belanger, Simi Valley
        • Excellent service and guidance from offer to close. Would not have been able to buy our house in this very competitive market without Stephen's advice . Great follow up from his staff manager Jessica on all the details.We look forward to working with them again.

          - gjs2020, Simi Valley
        • Kyle was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Real estate transactions can be very difficult. Kyle's responsiveness and attention to detail made our transaction very easy.

          - Allan Henry, Camarillo
        • Stephen and the Christie Group showed us what true professionalism is all about handling the sale of our home. From making initial suggestions on how to maximize value to developing a strategy designed to create massive interest in the house before it hit the MLS, their experience in the industry clearly showed. We received multiple offers, above listing price in a single day once the property went on the MLS. Very fortunate to have had them handle this major transition for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

          - Gerry Dougherty, Simi Valley
        • Really helpful team with good connections in the area to get the deal done. Added a lot of value through the search and transaction with local insight. Thanks, guys.

          - Nick Shaver, Thousand Oaks
        • I have had a great experience with my realtor Jansen. He helped me to buy my new home. He is easy to work with due to his professional and relaxed disposition. I did not feel pressured and he gave me the time to explore appropriate properties. I highly recommend this realty group and property management company, working with Jessica has been wonderful. She has great communication and is thorough in her style. They are both a pleasure to work with. A trustworthy company.

          - Jeanine, Simi Valley
        • Stephen Christie is the consummate realtor; extremely knowledgeable about the residential real estate areas in which he functions, constantly communicates with his clients, has a vast advertising presence on all real estate social media outlets and patiently explains all the real estate forms and answers all of his clients' questions. I enthusiastically recommend Stephen Christie Real Estate Company to anyone looking for a skilled and professional realtor to sell or to purchase a house.

          - Gary Ceazan, Oak Park
        • Stephen and his associates were very helpful throughout our whole house buying process. It was basically stress free .They were informative, easy to contact, and even helped us after buying the house to find good contractors ,for some needed home improvements , prior to our moving in.

          - Martin LaGue, Oxnard
        • Stephen Christie is amazing at what he does. I have both purchased and sold six homes through him and can testify to the fact that he is an experienced professional. He has excellent communication skills and ensures that you have a great experience . He makes the process completely flawless.

          - Cyndi Eckert, Simi Valley
        • Big thanks to Janssen and the rest of the team at Christie Realty Group! Janssen guided my family and I through the process of purchasing our new home. In this competitive sellers market, it was not easy finding the right home for us to purchase, but Janssen stuck with us and continued to do his best to provide us the guidance that ultimately resulted in an accepted offer for a home that we are very happy to be in. Communication is key to any successful group effort, and the team at Christie Realty was always available to us and very timely with responses and any action we needed to take in this process.

          - Ryan, Newbury Park
        • Janssen is very knowledgeable and experienced in the real estate space. I have not bought or sold a home with him, but have been to multiple open houses where he is showing the home. He is extremely professional and well-informed about the properties he has listed. I have consulted with him various times on the local market and he always provides a robust, insightful view. As a person, Janssen is thorough and detail-oriented which is what you should be looking for in an agent.

          - Jason, Simi Valley
        • Always helpful, upbeat, and has a thorough knowledge of real estate and is able to articulate her thoughts and guided me through the selling process making it a good experience. Willing to help in any way she could to assist me. Easy to get in touch with and promptly returned my calls.

          - Karen King, Westlake Village
        • We have bought and sold many homes over the years but have not navigated the process since 2003. Janssen and Jessica quickly brought us up to speed and helped alleviate any stress we had in purchasing an investment property. I cannot say enough about their professionalism, in depth knowledge of the real estate market and communication throughout the process. They walked us through every step of the way and it was the least painful real estate transaction we've ever had. I wish all of them went this smoothly! If you're in the market for a new home or investment property or are considering selling, do not hesitate to go with Christie Realty Group. They are the best in the business and with this crazy market, you need their kind of experience and expertise on your side.

        • Stephen Christie was representing us on the sale of our previous home and the purchase of the current home. Both transactions were running one after the other and we felt that the entire process went smoother than we thought. Stephen and team were very knowledgeable and we will recommend them for the sale or purchase of your home.

          - sandhiapc, Simi Valley

          - Steve, Simi Valley
        • We met Janssen Turell at an open house for a property listed by another broker and discovered an agent who was direct, energetic, thorough, and fair. He was a good listener and a hard worker. We trusted his judgement on numerous issues and were well served to have done so.

          - Will, Oxnard
        • We cant speak highly enough of our experience with Stephen Christie Realty. We knew instantly that Stephen and his team were the right choice for selling our home in Thousand Oaks. Stephen and Jessica were honest, hands on and really helped to take the pressure off of us. Jessica was always available to answer our questions, super responsive and unbelievably nice! There is no question that we would highly recommend Stephen Christie Realty to family and friends or anyone looking for a top notch realtor.Thanks Stephen and Jessica for all you did for our family!

          - Angela, Thousand Oaks
        • After six weeks on the market and few showings that brought only two very low offers, we sought the advice from a good friend and former realtor with a very successful track record. She said that most people hire their friend because they like them and trust them. She advised us to interview the top agents that sell the most houses in our area. We did our research and Stephen was one of the realtors on that list. These realtors are the highest echelon in the industry. Stephen sells over 100 houses per year - every year. He is extremely professional, approachable and provided us manageable direction. He assured us our home was priced right and it would sell. Our home sold in 24 hours from listing at full price - at the same price it was listed before. Stephen and Jessica delivered 100% on every aspect they promised. On top of that, they are lovely to work with. I highly recommend Stephen and his team and will work with them on all of my future real estate endeavors.
