Christiane has achieved great success in real estate. Consistently ranking among the highest performing agents in San Francisco, she has represented clients in all phases of residential real estate for over a decade.
After several years in the corporate world selling technology software for Oracle and advertising for the Financial Times and CNET, she followed her passion for homes and design and made real estate her new career. Christiane understood early on that success comes not necessarily from the biggest sales, but from satisfied and happy clients. It is a small world and people talk, which explains why nearly all of her business stems from repeat clients and their continued referrals.
A highly professional problem solver with discerning attention to detail, she brings dedication, passion, and experience to each and every transaction. She will always go the extra mile for her clients and simply do the right thing – even if it proves to be the more difficult path. Her tenacity and motivation have earned her a highly respected standing in the local real estate community.
Through her love for interior design and architecture she has developed a keen eye for what’s possible - helping buyers visualize the upside potential and ROI when evaluating properties. For sellers, she is expertly aware of how to position and present properties to appeal to a broad audience and obtain the highest price possible.
Since joining Alain Pinel Realtors in 2007, Christiane has consistently delivered superior results for her clients. In 2015 she represented clients in the purchase of the majestic Morgan Estate in Los Altos Hills – the most expensive MLS sale in all of Santa Clara County that year.
Christiane was born in Germany where most of her family still resides, and considers San Francisco her home. She has lived and worked in Berlin, Hannover, as well as Dublin, Ireland. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in communication and a minor in French. She has lived in San Francisco for the past 20 years.
In her free time, Christiane loves to escape the city and hike in the Marin Headlands, visit wineries in Napa and Sonoma, and search for treasures at the Alameda Antique Fair.
