Reviews & Recommendations

Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!!!

After extensive research online, I kept coming across Christina’s name. It’s rare to find a realtor in which the reviews are so positive, so I had to meet this Christina Lowry James for myself. From the first moment I spoke with Christina, she put me at ease with her level of professionalism and knowledge; I knew she was the one who could sell my house. And let me tell you, after only two months on the market, my home is sold!

Christina and her assistant, Jill, made this experience a moderately stress-free one. I really respect the fact that Christina was not pushy and respected my privacy when an unexpected event delayed the original timeline we’d previously agreed upon. Christina kept me informed throughout the entire process and even provided a timeline to keep me on track in preparation of the closing date. If you’re looking for a realtor who is an expert in this field, one who will listen and respect your needs and be a true advocate on your behalf, then Christina Lowry James is the realtor for you! I can attest to Christina’s statement that this is not just a job to her, but a commitment. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!!! Wendy G., Decatur, AL 

 If it were not for Christina, I believe I would still be looking.

I have purchased several homes in my lifetime and I can honestly say I have never received the level of customer service that I have from Christina. She listened intently when I told her what my "perfect" home would be and only recommended we look at the homes that fit my requirements. Christina has kept me posted every step of the way. It was like she anticipated my questions because about the time I would get ready to call, she'd call me first. She created an awesome timeline so I've known what to expect every step of the way.I am proud to say I will be closing on my home purchase in two weeks. If it were not for Christina, I believe I would still be looking.  Patti M., Odenville, AL

Christina James was excellent!

I live in VA and needed to sell a property in Alabama. From the moment I contacted Christina, she was prompt, professional and responsive! She stepped in and advised me on getting the property ready for sale. She went above and beyond the norm in meeting with contractors and providing them with access and instructions in my absence. From the moment I signed the contract with Christina until the closing of the sale, she kept me informed of the status of the sale process. Even while dealing with personal family challenges (hospitalizations and funeral) she always responded promptly to my inquiries. Charles B.

Best mix of diplomacy and toughness

We just closed on our house last Friday and I don't think we could've brokered a better deal without Christina. She's the best mix of diplomacy and toughness. Christina is also very knowledgeable and resourceful, and it all shows when helping us assess how much work this house needs compared to another. She helped us from start to end. I would highly recommend Christina and would use her on our next buy/sell. Jaime N., Hoover, AL

I have already recommended her

I have been buying, selling, renting, investing in real estate for 50 years. I just bought a condo and sold my house with Christina. She is by far the best realtor I have worked with. Besides the qualities listed above, she has very capable co-workers who are also helpful. You can always get the information you need quickly, completely and competently. I have already recommended her to others who are in the process of closing on the home they bought.  Alice L., Birmingham, AL

Very professional and very dedicated to getting me into my home.

"I recently purchased a home. I worked with Christina James and Jill Mitchell. My experience with these two made the process so much easier and both worked very hard to get me into my home. They both were very professional and very dedicated to getting me into my home that I bought. As this is the first home that I’ve bought, they made the process very understandable and less confusing. Christina explained everything to me when needed and also gave me options when needed. I never thought buying a home could be as easy as they made it to be. I would recommend Christina James and her team to anyone looking to buy a home. They made the complicated process totally understandable and worthwhile." Patrick G., Birmingham, AL

Intelligent, attentive, flexible, and goal-orientated.

"We were most pleased to work with Christina and her team. We found them to be intelligent, attentive, flexible, and goal-orientated. We would most definitely recommend this team and look forward to future transactions." Jenny H., Birmingham, AL

We could never have pulled everything off so quickly without her knowledge and experience.

"I contacted Christina at the beginning of the week to introduce myself, tell her that my husband and I would be arriving in Birmingham at the end of that SAME week, and inform her that we hoped to find a home in just a few days. We were relocating from another state and had no time to spare. Christina and Jill (her assistant) made themselves readily available to us and did an excellent job of orienting us to the city. Both are extremely professional and at the same time so friendly and accommodating. (Christina's calming presence was very reassuring during a stressful time). Christina and Jill are a fabulous team and made the entire process of finding a home incredibly painless. With their help, we were able to accomplish the near-impossible goal of finding our dream home in a weekend. Christina was also instrumental in negotiating the deal with the seller. We could never have pulled everything off so quickly without her knowledge and experience." Melissa G., Hoover, AL

Christina James is our Real Estate Angel

"Christina James is our Real Estate Angel. My wife and I had tried another realtor and agency to sell our property, and after 8 months of frustration we finally decided it was time for a change. And luckily for us we were introduced to Christina. She was encouraging when we had lost hope. She was positive when we had given up. She delivered when others could not. She helped me and my family out of a very difficult situation through hard work, honesty, and hope. When I need a realtor there is only one person I will ever call, Christina James." Johnathan H., Hoover, AL

The sale of our house went as smoothly and quickly as we could have possibly hoped.

"From the moment I met Christina I felt she was the realtor to assist us in the sale of our house and after a considerable interview process, my husband also agreed with me. None of the other chosen candidates were as well prepared, knowledgable, or nearly as professionally prepared as Christina. She listened, really listened to us, and the sale of our house went as smoothly and quickly as we could have possibly hoped. Always supportive and on top of her game,with her fantastic partner, Jill, we felt confident throughout our sales process. These women are a true dynamic duo, and I feel like In addition to confidently recommending them to anyone based on their thorough real estate expertise, I have I found in them new friends as well." Dee Scott, Birmingham, AL

Christina James did an amazing job helping us find our first home!

"Christina James did an amazing job helping us find our first home! We are new to the area we wanted to make sure we exhausted our options. Christina is knowledgeable about each neighborhood and helped us find a perfect fit. She was always available to answer questions throughout the process. We highly recommend Christina to future home buyers!" The Barnett Family, Hoover, AL

Very personable, professional, and got down to business right away.

"From the moment we met Christina we knew we would select her as our realtor. Very personable, professional, and got down to business right away. Set up a great photo shoot, pictures and flyers and had a staging consultant help add just the right touches to our home. Kept us informed of every showing, and once an offer was made worked hard to ensure we got the best deal. In the end, we got our home sold in 30 days, and we are very satisfied with her level of knowledge of the market." Dobers Family

Our experience with Christina was flawless …

"Christina is exceptionally professional and easy to work with. She took note of the key characteristics we were looking for and each of the homes she presented held these traits. Once we found the perfect house and decided to make an offer she thoroughly explained the home buying process and what we could expect each step along the way. She was responsive anytime we had questions and also stayed on top of the transaction to make sure it was progressing smoothly. Her responsiveness continued even after the purchase had closed when we had any additional questions. Furthermore, when I asked if she had any recommendations for a Realtor to sell my house in Huntsville, she took the time to research and interview Realtors there to provide me with the best candidate. Our experience with Christina was flawless and we would definitely recommend her and work with her again in the future." Robert P., Birmingham, AL

It is my pleasure to recommend Christina Lowry James – one of the most genuine individuals you will ever find.

"Dear Home Seller, I recently had the difficult task of selling a senior family member’s home. “Helpful” friends and family offered lots of advice like “put a sign in the window and sell it yourself”; “staging isn’t going to make a difference”; and endless “so and so did this and that to sell their home”. What could have been a horrible experience was so much better as I worked with the remarkable Christina James! She knew exactly which improvements would make the difference in a “dated” interior; Employed the best up-to-minute methods marketing the property to the right audience; Worked on our behalf within her extensive network of fellow realtors and industry professionals; and Priced the property spot-on as we closed at 96% of the original asking price. As you read the many glowing reviews of Christina, you will see the recurring theme of timeliness and expert knowledge. Yes, she absolutely has those attributes . . . and more. Seemingly never ruffled by “crazy” repeat questions, or new requests, she navigates you through the process with grace and sensitivity. It is my pleasure to recommend Christina Lowry James---- one of the most genuine individuals you will ever find." Mrs. Stephens, Vestavia, AL

Simply the best.

"Simply the best. Christina knew and understood the areas we were interested in and worked tirelessly to put us in our dream first home. She is experienced, friendly, and always gave an honest assessment of the houses she showed us. Can't say enough good things about our experience with her as OUR AGENT!" Mr. Teel, Homewood, AL

Christina is a fabulous realtor to work with.

"Christina is a fabulous realtor to work with. I would describe her as responsive, professional, an advocate for her client, honest, and friendly. As newlyweds and young professionals, we really wanted the perfect first house in a great area at the right price. We were picky buyers but I think Christina knew what we wanted better than we did! She knows the Homewood area very well and knew that if it went on the market, we needed to see it that day! She always found time to show us a house and was very responsive to my constant e-mailing. She helped us to find the perfect house that fits our needs completely. She was on our side throughout the entire process and always had our best interest at heart. She was honest in every house we walked through – pointing out the good and the bad. Finally, she was incredibly friendly and a calming force during the hectic home-buying process. Can’t say enough great things – highly recommend!" Mrs. Teel, Homewood, AL

She is very professional, easy-going and patient.

"I got my first house in Homewood. As a first time buyer, Christina helped me to go through all of the details. She is very professional, easy-going and patient. I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future." Mr. Hsiao, Homewood, AL
