We have been fortunate to assist many wonderful clients with their real estate transactions. Here are just a few of the reviews that have been posted in various places on the internet. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
As a tough negotiator and demanding client, when given the opportunity I would use Christine again as my real estate agent without reserve, as she possesses excellent communication skills to represent me in a professional manner. Christine consistently demonstrated exemplary job skills and performance as she worked with me to locate and purchase my new home. She was always prompt in meeting me and in returning emails and voice mail messages. Christine accurately evaluated my housing needs and only showed me listings that directly met my needs. She possesses a professional demeanor and would have completed property research including the issuance of City building permits prior to being asked. Without hesitation Christine would agree to meet with my inspectors and contractors in my absence to meet inspection deadlines. Her knowledge of construction including plumbing and electrical codes and ability to bring in her own qualified contractors aided in expediting the successful closure of escrow.

If you want old-fashion service - hard work, integrity and results, this is the realty to contact. I mainly worked with Dean DiCarlo who helped me find my dream home and I now live blissfully in Rossmoor. If I would ever need a new place, I would not think of going through the process without the DiCarlos.
P.S. The DiCarlos are kind but don't let it fool you - they're tough negotiators!
If I could give ten stars to Christine and her realty, I would. Make that 20! Having moved all the way from NYC to SoCal two months ago, I found her via Yelp and within days she was already invaluable to me before I even left! Thanks to her I found a great new home, an amazing deal and a new friend along the way. No one is more knowledgable or a better advocate for her clients than Christine!
Christine is amazing! She worked with my husband and me for a year, working hard to find a home she knew we would love and be happy growing our family in. She wasn't willing to settle and worked hard with us walking into many homes in numerous cities. She was very easy to reach via phone and email and always updated my search portal quicker than I could sit down to view the request! She has truly become a friend and we recommend her to everyone. The process was very smooth and it was all because of her. She never made us feel pressured or bad about seeing so any homes. She also had water and was sympathetic to our fussy little one on days that baby was just over house searching. Christine is very knowledgeable in so many aspects, home buying, handy skills, she even did a lot of our home inspection with us. We can't thank her enough and recommend her highly!
Christine worked with my husband and me for a year, making sure we found the perfect house for our growing family. We walked into so many and never once did we feel pressured to buy. She was so fast at replying to emails and updating my search portal. We had her searching in numerous cities and she did it all with a smile. I loved how excited she was with us, how she helped us see potential in homes that we otherwise wouldn't have seen. She is very smart in so many areas of home buying. She was there every step of the way, and we truly believe we have gained not only a relator but also a good friend. We recommend her to everyone. Love love loved our experience!
We love Christine! My husband and I decided last year that renting an apartment in Irvine was too expensive so we wanted to look into renting a condo. We called Christine, who was very friendly from the beginning. She took us to multiple condos for rent. We found a condo we were happy with but when we saw what the lease said we were did not feel comfortable signing it. The entire search was difficult because we were both students and were going to need a cosigner and had 2 cats and by then we were getting close to having to give our 30 days notice at our apartment so we decided to just sign another lease and wait a year until we would be working. When we called Christine she was very gracious about the situation and never seemed mad at us. A year later, we decided we would see if we could actually buy a condo. We called Christine again and she started showing us condos. We spent a couple months looking at numerous condos (we even looked at 7 in one day). One afternoon, we went to look at a condo. The condo looked wonderful from the outside. We went inside and we knew this was the one. After looking at so many condos, we had finally found our dream first home. Christine only showed us condos in our price range and never pressured us to spend more money than we were comfortable with. She is friendly, patient, and always made us feel like we were her most important client which I'm sure is the same way she makes everyone feel. We HIGHLY recommend Christine to anyone who is looking for an experienced, caring, talented, and wonderful real estate agent.

I had to purchase my property from long distance and she made it as painless as possible every step of the way. Very organized and knows Orange County very well. She also always answered her phone and if she didn't I would get a call back within 5 minutes or so. Christine will be my agent for the foreseeable future and would recommend her to anybody!

Christine DiCarlo met with us several times to learn about the Huntington Beach area and to identify areas where we might like to buy a home. She found homes in the areas we liked and ultimately found the home we loved. Her experience and expert guidance helped us negotiate a somewhat challenging buy side and we are living in our dream home in Huntington Beach. We highly recommend Christine for all of your real estate needs.
We were able to close and get our keys in before the long weekend (even with the new TRID guidelines) and were extremely pleased. Overall, Christine is a great agent, doesn't pressure you, works with you to find what suits you, and has your best interests in mind. She keeps the process moving, is on top of lenders and third parties for updates, and makes the home buying process as smooth as possible for you. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great real estate agent who is on your side and who cares about you.
Christine is amazing! My husband and I were looking to move our family and business to HB from the Bay Area. She helped us set up an apartment for our team, find a short term rental, and showed us some houses in the area. We had a short time we were going to have to move in and Christine was ON IT. Every step of the way she responded to my emails and texts within minutes and was more than attentive. Our business deal came to a halt and we had to hold off on our move for now. Christine is very easy to work with, extremely efficient, and available. If HB is to be our home in the future we will definitely be calling her.

I have been a real estate agent in Seattle WA for over 27 years and this is the first time I have ever written a review on another agent. I am writing now because I was so impressed with the level of professionalism Christine showed while dealing with a difficult situation. In Real Estate transactions things do not always go as planned and when unexpected things happen you really need someone knowledgeable and level headed on your side. Sadly some agents are only in it for themselves but Christine genuinely cares about her clients and in my opinion that is what separates the good or bad agents from the great ones.
After what could have been a disastrous and traumatizing experience with a friend of the family who 'dabbles'in real estate we met Christine DiCarlo. Local, informed, warm yet professional and nit - picky in every detail that I, a first time home buyer, was not aware of! She listened to our needs and was a bulldog when we made our offers! I highly recommend this driven Lady!

Just finished closing today. Christine is very knowledgeable about her profession, friendly, and was not only a big help in finding me a new place to call home, she made the whole process as smooth as possible, from helping me find the right place to guiding me through escrow, keeping me informed all along the way. So if your looking, Christine is the agent for you. She's worth at least 10 stars.
~ Frank D.
Like a few others, went through the process of renting our home with Christine. She was outstanding! Super friendly, responded quickly to all inquiries and requests, and was always there when required. I've worked with a few real estate agents and not many measure up to the customer service that Christine provides!
~ Ken C.
Christine and the staff of Remeo Realty did a fantastic job of marketing and selling our house in Huntington Beach. She handled all the details in meticulous fashion and allowed us to retain an incredible amount of normality in our day to day life amidst planning a cross country move. Her task management, flexibility, and negotiating skills not only achieved full valuation on the sale but timed our departure down to the exact day (pest fumigation was scheduled six hours after we left the home for the last time!). Can't imagine they all go this great, but Christine's abilities definitely maximized the odds in our favor. Highly recommended!

My family and I were living in Virginia and looking for a house to rent in Huntington Beach, CA. We were SO fortunate to have Christine DiCarlo helping us. For three months, 3000 miles away, she contacted local homeowners renting, property managers, videotaped houses, emailed us daily about every house for rent that met our location desires and price range. When we made it out to CA she enthusiastically showed us houses on the weekend. The house we finally rented was on Craigslist, however, Christine went above and beyond her duties to contact the owners, videotape the house, and describe it in detail through several emails to us. She did this even though she was not entitled to compensation but was dedicated to helping us find just the right home. Christine DiCarlo has my highest recommendation and I will absolutely use her again.
Christine DiCarlo was our real estate agent when we bought our first condo. She was so knowledgeable and responsive and made the process go so smoothly. Because of the great experience, we again contacted her 3 years later to buy our first home. She even showed up on our move in day to make sure everything was going great and surprised us with a house warming present! Thanks for the great experience Christine!
Christine was helpful, efficient and responded quickly to our requests to look at homes. She has great connections and adds a personal touch by only working with one family/couple/individual at a time. I would highly recommend her, contact her and find out for yourself.
Christine is a real pro, recently helping us lease our house. She was on top of everything every step of the way. She's very responsive and got back to us promptly on every topic. She was a pleasure to work with. I'd highly recommend her!
~ Audra S.
My boyfriend and I were seeking a new place in a short time frame and Christine saved the day!! She listened to our needs, provided many suitable options and was flexible/available at a moment’s notice. Christine is knowledgeable, professional, efficient, hard working and fun. It was a pleasure working with Christine and I would definitely look forward to partnering again in the future...but not too soon future since we LOVE our new home! Thanks, Christine!!

Christine totally took care of matching me with the owners of my rental. My stats on paper were not what would appeal to a home owner renting out the home they raised their family in but she knew that I was someone who would appreciate the home and not your typical rental, regardless of my credit score. She took the time to get to know me, understand my situation and presented me as a person, not a renter to the home owners. I wish I could have her as my personal representative always.
Buying a house can be very stressful; Christine made the process as easy as possible. She understood exactly what we wanted and how much we had to work with. Don't let her kind demeanor fool you though, when it comes to dealing with other agents she is a self-proclaimed "hockey mom" and she gets things done, fast! We had been looking with Christine for a couple of months, but just could not find the right size for the right price. It was 8PM on a Wed night and Christine actually came to my front door and said," There is a house 1 block from the beach for sale well within your price range, it just went up on the MLS 20 min ago". We put in an offer before midnight and got a call the next day to walk through the house and sign papers. The other agent told us he had multiple offers and even offers for a little bit more money but they took our offer specifically because of the way Christine presented us as strong buyers. I can't think of a better confirmation that we chose the right realtor.
We now have had the house for 2 1/2 months and are still remodeling. I just got a call from Christine to ask how the house was coming along. I really appreciate her consideration and her professionalism. I give Christine the highest possible recommendation and though I don't plan on moving any time soon, I would not think of using anyone else.

Christine DiCarlo was amazing!! From the first day showing us around Huntington to meeting us at our new home with keys, pizza, and beer.. we couldn't have asked for a better agent! Christine was very professional, on task, and enthusiastic! We looked for almost a year and she never failed to head right over to the neighborhood of a house we liked from afar, get a video of everything she could think of, down to videoing as she drove around. Even as a busy parent she made time to meet us every time we called. We can't come up with enough great things to say about Christine but we are certain we wouldn't have had such a smooth transaction without her.
~ April F.
Christine is awesome - my husband and I used her twice to find an HB rental. The first time we were moving from Michigan and had just one weekend to find a place. She was such a great help to us, making sure all our needs (right school district, dog friendly) were met. One year later we wanted to move into a house. I gave Christine our requirements (school district, yard for the dogs, garage for all the new toys we'd acquired in the past year), and again, she was awesome working with us until we found the perfect place.

Selecting a Realtor who always has my best interests in mind is the most important quality in a Realtor or any service provider for that matter. Our lease had ended and we decided that we wanted to explore buying a home in Huntington Beach or surrounding areas like Costa Mesa or Fountain Valley. Since we had to find something quickly, we had to keep our options open and also had to look at rentals as well. After being unsuccessful in finding a home to buy (not due to any fault of Christine, who worked hard to show us all that was available and who was wonderful to work with), we settled on another rental and Christine did a great job of helping us negotiate our lease and get us in right on time. Now later, I’ve come to find out that Christine doesn’t even get paid because this landlord doesn’t cooperate with Realtors. Well, this just speaks to Christine’s character and how she truly cares for her clients’ outcome and well-being because if she was at all disappointed, it certainly didn’t show. Next year, we are going to start looking much sooner and we can’t wait to work with Christine, who will always be our Realtor whether we are looking to lease or buy a home. Thank you Christine!!!
Christine is beyond great. She helped me sell my condo in HB for over the asking price within 3 days of it going on the market. I think a lot of that had to do with the digital "curb appeal" of her photos and 3D videos that she created. She is also tremendously responsive and helpful and always kept me up to date. She coordinated with the HOA for repairs and even arranged a plumber for me. This was such an easy process and the stress was very much absent. Can't recommend her more highly!
Christine made buying my house in Huntington Beach the best experience I could have imagined. Having a realtor with such a vast amount of knowledge on the process and alerting me to the steps to come, put me at ease and enabled me to have peace of mind with such an important purchase. She really knows the real estate business and is such a great warm person to have on my side. She got me the best property at the best price in Huntington Beach. I hope never to move from this great town, but if I do, she will be the only realtor I ever call. I recommend her to all my friends and neighbors.
~ Laura N.
Christi was personable and made my husband and I feel at ease when looking for our first home. She knows the area very well and is the perfect agent to help you find what you are looking for! I wouldn't call anyone else.
~ Ariel F.
Christine is great, has the clients best interest at the forefront. Thorough understand of your needs, wants and desires. She works 24/7 for you. Great understanding of the Orange County Market. Works with the best people (Home Inspector Peter Hopkins) for a complete assessment of the home your are buying. Couldn't have asked for more.
~ Randy M.
Christi has gone above and beyond in our buying process. She is diligent and the follow up is impeccable. I highly recommend her to anyone that needs a trusting advisor. Don't think about calling anyone else because you won't find anyone that is committed as Christi and making your buying process easy and stress free!
We're in the process of buying our second house and I could not be more thrilled to work with Christi. She is knowledgeable, strategic and knows the market trends. Her follow through is unreal and the attention to detail that she possesses is unlike anyone I've ever worked with. I highly recommend Christi to take care of your property hunt whether it's your 1st or 5th house!
~ Aaron S.
Christi is extremely professional and is always very quick to respond. She helped my wife and I find our home (which we love) without any pressure or hurry to buy. Christi made the entire home buying process a breeze!
~ Jamie D.
I used Christi for my move from the East Coast to CA and she was just super all around. I had a really tight schedule and she accommodated me with both her schedule and also driving me to see all the properties. She really knows Orange County quite well and was able to provide me with a ton of information about each neighborhood and provide me with pros and cons of each neighborhood. Christi also found a number of properties which were a good fit and met my criteria. I would absolutely use her again and highly recommend her as a real estate agent.
