Christy was unbelievable to work with. She kept us informed about our home we were purchasing every step of the way (without being intrusive, which is a fine balance). She is a delight to work with from listing through closing. We also had to sell our home in Michigan at the same time and I wish I had listed it with Christy even though she is here in SC. The other realtor was horrible by comparison. Thank you Christy. You have two very happy customers who will be with you for life.
Christy Grear helped me buy a new home, sell a home, and purchase a larger home. She is your advocate and will go above and beyond to make sure you understand what you need to do either buying or selling. She always has a lineup of professionals to assist: inspectors, plumbers, lenders, etc. that are top notch and priced right. She is very detailed orientated and works as hard as she can for you and asks questions you wouldn’t think of and makes sure all details are completed properly and timely. If you are going to sell or buy a house I recommend you go with Christy Grear, she is the first person I would call!
Christy was a delight to work with. She is very knowledgeable and returned texts and emails promptly. We were thinking about going fsbo to sell our home, but are so glad we decided to work with her instead. We sold our home in about 36 hours!

Christy is truly the best Realtor that I have worked with. She goes above and beyond for her clients and looks out for their best interests. We were relocating from another state and only had one day to look at houses. We were so needy changing things last minute and Christy was extremely accommodating. Thank you for Everything Christy you are awesome!!

Buying a home in a sellers market was something I wasn't use to. Christy must have shown my daughter at least 15 homes which was far above what I expected. She helped me screen the homes for many things that in the future may have turned the home into a money pit. I feel her hard work to get the right home which was purchased July 31, 2017 was the best choice. My daughter and family are extremely pleased with their new home which Christy made happen.

Christy helped me navigate a challenging selling and buying experience. Her guidance and commitment to getting me to a "good" place in each of the transactions has been essential to my success in a very competitive market. She has extended herself in every way to make my experience a good one.
Everyone at Allen Tate was extremely helpful, courteous and professional. A very special thanks to Christy Grear and Donna Thomas who made my relocation and home purchase a very smooth transition. Their guidance and follow-up were A+ and I highly recommend Allen Tate based solely on their impeccable service.

Few times in life will you meet an individual dedicated to your success. Christy Grear is one such individual. Christy's knowledge, support, and advocacy allowed us to find the home that our family will enjoy for years. Christy listened to our needs and offered choices. Her schedule flexibility was great for a working couple. Christy also communicates with her clients frequently. You will always know what is happening. We are very appreciative of Christy's support.
Christy Grear is wonderful! I highly recommend both Christy and Donna at Allen Tate Mortgage. They were professional, punctual, and communicative throughout the entire process. Christy knows the market, knows the area, and she knows her business. I don't often recommend people or businesses because I am by extension putting my own reputation on the line if people are disappointed with my recommendation. I would do business with Christy again in a heartbeat and I would not hesitate to refer family or friends to her.
Christy was an instrumental component in making my relocation a smooth transition. Not only was she professional, but her attention to detail as well as follow-up were top drawer. In a sea of realtors, many of whom forgot the words customer service sales, Christy knows how to put clients first. This is extremely important when relocating to another state where real estate rules, regulations, etc. can be much different.
A big thank you to Christy and also to her excellent support staff at Allen Tate.
Christy was the absolute best real estate agent my wife and I have worked with. We had a limited time frame to look for houses and she was up early everyday and on the weekends working with us all the way into the evenings to find our perfect home. She was on time with every deadline that we needed to meet and kept us on track through the entire home buying process which is really needed when you're busy moving your life around. We were first time home buyers and new to the area and she met all of our hundreds of questions knowledgably and so kindly. She really made the rigorous process feel very easy and controlled at every step of the way. I highly recommend Christy for any home buyers and I will be passing her information onto my friends and family.

Christy has navigated me through the purchase of two properties in the last five years. the first one, I was returning to South Carolina from Texas and was not sure what I wanted. She spent over a month of working with me, showing me almost the entire upstate before I made a decision. Recently, she marketed my town home and her work resulted in a very fast and large response and the property sold at an excellent selling price. She has also assisted me with the multitude of details that go into buying and selling simultaneously. She is very focused on a quick turnaround when providing information and is dedicated to making her clients feel very well taken care of. Christy is a professional I want to have on my side in real estate dealings.
Christy Grear "gets" customer service. As an Entrepreneur/ Owner operator of a small business, you have to go above and beyond for EVERY customers. Christy was patient, understanding and very efficient with us. You see, we had 3 days in which we had to purchase a home. Christy understood the challenge which was a miracle in itself. I want everyone to know when someone goes out of their way to do the unexpected. I'm sure that Christy takes the rule book to a level that most never even try and achieve. Again, Thank You!
I've worked with Christy in multiple home sales and purchases. Christy combined her excellent strategies and people skills with extreme patience and perseverance to make sure my experience went very smoothly. It is not often that we meet professionals who are definitely a cut above the rest.
Christy was very patient with me during the whole process. She was there every step of the way through the new purchase process. She was able to negotiate a more than fair deal for me. I have her on speed dial just in case I need to relocate or any real estate advice.
Christy first looked over the house and met with me and my 4 siblings. She gave us good advice on things to do to make the over 40 year old home salable. She gave us suggestions for providers. She responded quickly to e-mails and phone calls. The process was as painless as possible.
I would definitely recommend Christy Grear as the best person to handle your real estate needs. We have lived in five different states and no other real estate agent has impressed us as much as Christy Grear.
Christy was not only sensitive to our needs in selling the house, she was sensitive to us as people as well. We would highly recommend Christy Grear to anyone selling their home who wants an attentive, responsible and thorough realtor with all the skills necessary to get the job done quickly.
If you're looking for a thorough, knowledgable, and detailed-oriented real estate agent, Christy Grear is your girl. She asks smart questions and keeps track of all your answers, your wants and don't wants. She locates properties that fit your criteria and she makes time, no matter how busy she is, to show you the ones that pique your interest.Christy's got your back when it comes to protecting you from undesirable properties as she notices things you may not see.She's laid back and calm and when it comes to the details, she can't be beat. She has a system and she remembers everything. Nothing slips by Christy, which is a godsend when it comes to closings and all the paperwork involved. You can rest assured that if you're looking for property in the Greenville, SC metropolitan area (and that includes the furthest west counties, as well) you couldn't ask for a better real estate agent than Christy Grear.
Christy is quite simply an excellent realtor and I would readily recommend her to others. I am moving from Boston to Greenville and reached out to Christy after reading her reviews on Angie's. Christy responded within 15 minutes and from that moment on made me feel like she was in my corner, which has been a great relief in the hectic madness of the move. Christy has a strong understanding of the market, was keen to understand what my needs and wants are and was very flexible in her timing to meet me during a holiday trip in SC. In addition, she helped me to keep my own financial goals in place by talking me down when I suddenly decided maybe I should go above the price limit I had set - that's when I knew Christy was a true professional!
Christy was a vital resource in helping us move into the Greenville area. Before we were able to visit the area, she provided several extensive collections of listings. After each list, she was very receptive to our feedback about which houses we liked and what aspects were the most likely to take a house off the list. The options she showed us got better and better as we looked and figured out what we actually wanted. She supported one EXTENSIVE house hunting trip where we spent four days looking at over 25 different locations. After our first choice was sold to someone else, she arranged another trip on short notice (3-4 days) with new listings. We ultimately closed on a house we saw on the second trip. During the showings, Christy was very good at letting us look at the house without interfering, but listening closely and providing answers and advice we wanted. She was also very careful to write down every question we had on a property which she couldn't immediately answer and was usually able to provide answers within a day. I can't stress enough how appreciative we were of her objectivity while we were looking at houses. Our last agent (in VA) was rather pushy, often commenting on the house, either positive or negative, before we had a chance to make our assessment. Christy would instead wait to hear our commentary, and then provide any insight from her experience (e.g. what it means if you see fog between window panes, why to avoid polybutylene pipes, etc.). She was very knowledgeable, but often went beyond her memory and sought out information important to us (e.g. methods to take care of a buried storage tank). During the negotiation phase and after the offer was accepted, she was very proactive in communications, passing our information quickly, giving us responses, and holding everyone to the deadlines we agreed upon. She also provided excellent support during the inspection process, helping to contact and schedule inspectors and the final walk-through to ensure repairs were performed. Even after we closed, she went out of her way to make sure that we got our copy of the documentation from the attorney.From the first time we interacted with Christy through to the very bitter end, she was helpful, pleasant, knowledgeable and punctual. We would definitely use Christy again and recommend her for anyone looking for a home in the Greenville area.
Ms. Grear served as our real estate agent in an out of state transaction. With our home purchase criteria established, she took us to a number of homes in the Greenville area. She served as our proxy, scheduling inspections and facilitated informed negotiations throughout the purchase process. With a remote closing, Christy served as our eyes and ears during walk through and picked up on a problem that had to be remedied prior to closing. Given that we were out of state home buyers, Christy arranged for a number of different showings for homes that fit our search criteria. She was very patient with us, as the home descriptions began to blur as the number of home tours increased. She kept good notes and reminded us of our comments as needed in the review process. After two separate visits to Greenville, we selected a home and used her market analysis to make a competitive offer. Christy was our conduit for inspections and negotiations throughout the purchase process. She served us well to provide prompt, informative updates, including pictures, as needed. As an example of her professionalism and attention to detail, she picked up on a problem during walk through that was remedied prior to closing, saving us a repair bill.
Christy acted as our agent while we searched for a home in Greenville, SC. My husband and I wanted to have a look at Greenville for semi-retirement /retirement. I flew out for a week in May 2014 after having looked online and sent Christy our "possibilities." When I arrived in Greenville, Christy had my viewings planned and even had a booklet made with the listings of possible properties . We sold our Houston home in August 2014 and decided to have a look at Greenville again, since we were drawn to one property in particular. Christy successfully guided us through the process of negotiation and purchase of the home. One thing that stood out was her quick response to my communications, unlike other realtors I have dealt with in the past. She is punctual, professional and detail-oriented and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is relocating or moving within the Greenville area.
Christy is a very hard working and forthright real estate agent. She knows the Greenville area very well and is highly skilled in the paperwork aspect of home buying. If you use Christy to help you find your next home you will have a great home buying experience.
Christy worked with us for a couple months to find a home for sale. We weren't sure that we could secure financing, but that didn't discourage her. Most of the time we needed to visit houses for sale on the weekend due to work and that was never a problem for her. She has a great attitude and is very knowledgeable of her field. Once we found a house, she took care of everything, including inspections, working with the listing agent, all the details that made everything run very smoothly. We closed on time and love our new home.

We were suddenly relocated to the Greenville area due to work and knew nothing about the area or where to start the search for a home. We were moving out from Colorado and were worried about many things, including finding a home with good schools ect. We were also on a very tight deadline. We came into town with just two days to find a house. We were overwhelmed to say the least. We showed up at the Allen Tate office and were introduced to Christy and she immediately put us at ease. She provided us with an itinerary of homes to view that fit all the needs we requested. She was beyond knowledgable about each house and the area, as well as very organized. She walked us through each home with our best interest in mind at all times. If it wasn't for Christy our move would of been crazier than it already was. She was the best through out our entire move. Constantly updating us and keeping us informed and answering a million questions we had at any given time. From the beginning to the end Christy showed us what it was like to have the best of the best when it comes to a real estate agent. We were kinda sad when it was all done and over as we loved having Christy around honestly. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Your in the best hands when you have Christy on your side. Thank you for everything Christy!!
