Chrysti Tovani: A Real Estate Legacy and Expertise
This legacy not only imparts invaluable experience but also instills in me a profound respect for the profession, shaping my approach to serving you.
I hail from a family with an illustrious history in real estate. For over four decades, they have owned and operated a real estate business in San Francisco, investing and breathing new life into countless properties and transforming tenants into proud homeowners. When I joined their company, I started by assisting with escrow files and managing rental properties, showing properties, and admin work. I did everything that needed to be done.
Working alongside family can be challenging, especially when young and lacking broader work experience. They often reminded me of my good fortune, but it was hard to appreciate it fully at that age. One day, on my way to the accountant’s office, I spotted a “Help Wanted” sign outside a mortgage company. I applied and landed the job. It was a significant leap in pay and a chance to learn from the ground up. I eventually became a mortgage advisor, helping clients secure financing for their real estate endeavors.
Hindsight reveals the missed opportunities for mutual understanding, but at that time, I needed to venture out for personal growth. My advice to parents working with their children: Allow them to explore while keeping the door open for their return. Encourage their desire to venture out and gain diverse experiences rather than punishing them for it. Remember that it’s all part of the growth process, and we can’t blame our parents if they make mistakes, either. We are all human, and this journey is one for learning life lessons. Let’s give each other grace along the way. There were very high expectations that I could handle today, but at that young age, I didn’t have the life experience to muster that kind of confidence. I was still speaking in that high-pitched upspeak. Today, I am a confident woman.
Throughout my extensive real estate career, I’ve worked in mortgages, title, and real estate sales. This diverse background equips me to guide clients through seamless escrow processes, even when unexpected challenges arise. I embrace Marie Forleo’s philosophy that ‘Everything is figureoutable.’
I take pride in being straightforward and proactive, keeping clients informed and empowered throughout the transaction. Navigating an escrow can be complex, often involving heightened emotions and negotiations. Your real estate agent’s emotional intelligence is crucial in achieving the optimal outcome. I hope you will find that I am authentic and genuine. If you’re looking for an agent who offers a personal connection, that’s me. My goal is to make your real estate journey as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Whether you’re selling or buying a property, I’m here to guide you every step of the way. When selling, I’ll assist in preparing your home for the market and pricing it for maximum return. For buyers, I emphasize thorough inspections and due diligence during the escrow period, ensuring informed decisions. During this period, there’s a specific timeframe to address concerns, and if needed, we can cancel the escrow and explore other options.
My unwavering commitment is safeguarding your best interests throughout your real estate journey.
Your satisfaction is my North Star. It’s not just about the paycheck; it’s about being your creative partner, guide, and unwavering advocate. I’m here to help you make informed decisions and navigate the twists and turns of the real estate market with rock-solid confidence.
My business thrives on referrals and a strong presence on social media. I don’t overload myself; I prefer to work with a limited number of clients at a time. That way, I can give each of you the undivided attention you deserve, helping you reach your goals effectively and efficiently. And yes, I get it—life isn’t just about work. I understand the importance of balance, so I focus on providing top-notch service during dedicated hours, ensuring success without burnout.
