Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Mission Bay
An Aucklander born and bred, Christine Kahn grew up in the central suburbs of Epsom and Parnell listening to accounts of real estate transactions – her father was a widely respected real estate agent of long standing.
Practical, calm, and patient, Christine initially trained as a teacher and taught Clothing and Textiles at intermediate school. After a stint with her sister running a corporate catering company and following the birth of her two children, Christine had considerable involvement with the family vehicle sales and rentals businesses. Once her children were independent, Christine felt the time was right to follow her father’s footsteps into a career in real estate.
Her focus was primarily in her own neighbourhood of St Heliers & Mission Bay and she kicked off her career in 2004 winning Rookie of the Year. Dedicated service in the ensuing years has seen her build a respectable reputation and her many clients love her for her perseverance, tenacity and grace.
Her commitment to community entities such as her long association with the St Heliers Bay Pony Club, previous Chair of the Auckland Area Pony Club, and a close affinity with St Heliers Church and Community Centre has been appreciated by many and carried out with her characteristic efficiency and determination to keep going until the job is done. Married to Steve, Christine enjoys walks round the beautiful bays – a place where, like many other residents they love the beaches and the wonderful lifestyle on offer.
Now with her return to the Mission Bay, Christine is excited by the opportunities available to her working from this dynamic and pivotal Ray White office in her local community. Well-known and admired for her experience and professionalism Christine looks forward to continuing to assist her Eastern Suburbs and Bays’ clientele with all their real estate requirements under her newly adopted Ray White banner.
I was recommended Chris Kahn as an agent to go to if I wanted to buy a home in the Bays some 9 years ago. I immediately liked Chris and felt she was someone I could trust to take care of my best interests and find the right home for me. Indeed she did and we have become good acquaintances every since. Chris has helped me in many ways with my home and took care of my property for me when abroad even though this was not her job to do so. I have recommended her to friends and they too have come away with the same satisfaction that I have had when she found the right home for them. When I sold my apartment recently there was no question about who would sell it for me. It had to be Chris. Again she did a terrific job and found new owners who love my place and who were also very impressed with Chris, her integrity and very pleasant manner. She is an agent that cares about customers and ends up with happy vendors as well as purchasers. People stay with Chris because of this so she is an great asset for any real estate agency to have working for them.
Having worked with Alison and Christine over the past months on the purchase and the sale of our property, we found their service and commitment to be above and beyond our expectations, and we would strongly recommend them and the Ray White team in Mission Bay. It has been a pleasure working alongside them to achieve an outstanding price for our home; we are delighted with the outcome.
We purchased off Christine Kahn in 2007. As a purchaser we found Christine to be extremely professional, with excellent communication skills, accommodating, candid and prepared to go the extra mile on behalf of both parties. Having made the decision to sell, we engaged Christine. Christine prepared a marketing plan and budget associated with a sales strategy that exemplified her experience and knowledge of the Eastern Bays. Our ongoing communication with Christine was timely and sincere and we were kept fully appraised of the progress made. We sold well in excess of market valuation. Christine has worked extremely hard and diligently on our behalf, and produced a result beyond our expectations. Having now benefited as a vendor and a purchaser from Christine's talents and abilities we have not hesitation in recommending Christine to you.

It has been a very positive experience dealing with Christine. We purchased a section which Christine was advertising and so when it came time to sell the new home we had built we immediately called Christine to come and list the property for sale. We absolutely trusted Christine's honest and direct approach and she promised to work her absolute hardest to achieve a sale using the Auction process. After just one weekend of open homes we received an offer which we were delighted with and the property was sold. What more do I need to say... it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Christine in the selling of our home and would highly recommend her to anybody considering selling. If you want a great experience, than list with Christine.

Having a real estate agent selling your property is an exercise in Trust - all agents say they work for the vendor but the difference for us was that Christine actually did and achieved a sale in less than a week.

I was delighted to have the professional services of Christine to help me market and sell my property in Mission Bay with a very active and successful Auction campaign. Her continual updates and feedback from potential buyers kept me fully informed during the selling process. Her focus, dedication and commitment through-out the three weeks culminated in an outstanding result. To say I am delighted is an understatement. Malcolm
