I can talk endlessly about how great AND fun Christel and Juli Ann both are to work with. They quickly got our house market ready and went above and beyond in so many ways. They take their relationships with their clients seriously. I can confidently assure you that they will be by your side, advocating for you, every step of the way and then some.

Christel provided us with valuable expertise that helped us sell our house in a timely manner. They assisted us with organizing the many possessions of our beloved family member, in a dignified and efficient manner.

What we asked for wasn’t easy, but she found exactly what we needed. We got through it with great success because she was right there by our side. Thank you Chrystal for all your hard work, patience and diligence along the way.

The entire team was an absolute godsend! My mother could no longer live alone and we needed to sell her home quickly to support her in assisted living. They came in and took care of everything! The house was on the market in two weeks and sold two days later. I do not live in the area and would have never been able to complete everything they accomplished in such a short amount of time and we got $20,000 over asking!! Absolutely amazing customer service and so trustworthy. Thank you all so much!

I recently worked on a transaction with Christel Osterstrom where she represented the buyers. I am a lender and it was such a pleasure working with Christel. She understands the several aspects of buying a home and managing the various parties involved. A true team player looking out for her clients and keeping their best interest at heart. She maintained a positive attitude each day, communicated well and helped get to closing without stress. I look forward to working with her again and would highly recommend her services without hesitation to anyone thinking to buy or sell real estate.

We used Christel for our recent home purchase. We were not only out of state, but all the way across the country during portions of viewing, escrow, and final closing. Christel viewed houses and would video us or send us pictures and videos. She was knowledgeable about the things that mattered to us (potential growth of house value, having young kids and needing safety of fencing/yard, good school districts). She ended up finding us our perfect property that we wouldn’t have even imagined. The whole process was the smoothest we’ve experienced (this is third home purchase). Would highly recommend Christel and would certainly work with her again.

I am incredibly pleased with the service provided by Christel during our home buying process. She is extremely knowledgeable of the housing market. She made herself available to us around our schedule, she was there for us nights, weekends, and even showed us homes on Easter! Christel gave us all the information we needed to make our decision as easily as possible. She went above and beyond, even helped with finding a lender after ours fell through! If you are looking for a true professional to buy or sell your home look no further. Christel is the Best!

Review of Christel Osterstrom at Cox Gibson Real Estate Group specializing in 55 Plus communities. 8/9/2023.
Our 90yo mother passed away and my wife and I of 45 years were spending 3-4 days a week travelling 160 miles to Lacey, WA and back, packing up her household possessions, with no end in sight. On a Friday, during our second week in Lacey, Christel Osterstrom passed by on the sidewalk and warmly invited us to visit an open house that she and her agency were hosting down the street the next day. It was definitely providence. Christel gave us an open house brochure with her contact info and from then on it was easy -- she took care of all our needs to list our mother's home. She along with her partner Juli Anne Gibson at Cox Gibson RE Group were prompt, efficient, caring, attentive and pro-active, always taking our calls and texts responding quickly, making us feel like we were her only customer.

Christel promptly provided a Checklist Schedule of events as they would happen up to closing along with helping us determine the best price for listing the home sale. Once the house was empty, she would have a cleaner, hanydman, and landscaper come in to fix, clean, touch- up and beautify everything. Estimates were provided by the professionals. Then a 3D virtual tour webpage was built after the house was staged with furnishings. All that happened within a week that ended with the home being listed locally and around the country on websites.

On our last day in the house when movers came to pick up the last of the furniture, Christel came by and she touched up a spot on the fence and re-stained a small ornamental bridge with fresh stain in our backyard Japanese garden. No task or detail was too small for Christel to attend-to herself.

When it came to the contract, home inspection, and reports up to closing, Christel explained all the detail and made sure we understood the ins-and-outs to make sure our interests were protected. She enlisted the Title Company and also a 3rd party company to track and ensure all milestones were met toward closing date. We were able to sign the closing documents in our hometown without travelling, all within less than a month of the initial listing date. All the parties that Christel enlisted were prompt and professional and kept us informed. I would add that my wife and I were prompt and proactive as well in communicating our needs and questions to all parties as they came up, which helped ease all the tensions with everything that had to be done.

We think the world of Christel Osterstrom and her team and would use their services in a heartbeat if the need were to arise again. Thank you Christel!

Having never sold a home before, Crystal and Julie Ann made it effortless. They took care of everything, while we were off enjoying our retirement. They marketed, listed and staged the home so we were able to realize the best possible price.
