Hallie is hardworking, dedicated, and goes far above and beyond to make your real estate transaction as smooth as possible. She is trustworthy and smart and an absolute pleasure to work with! I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Hallie Myhre is truly exceptional. A realtor friend referred her to us to sell our mountain property and Hallie did not disappoint. She came prepared to our first meeting with market research and a strategy for selling the land. We ran into an issue with our title that required multiple legal steps to clear up. Hallie was patient and steadfast supporting us through this process. She even took our challenge as an opportunity to further her knowledge, taking a continuing education course on the probate process and was able to help us better understand the necessary requirements. Selling a property that had been in my family for more than 50 years was emotional, but Hallie’s encouragement and professionalism throughout the process carried us through this complicated and very difficult sale. I highly recommend Hallie and would work with her again in a heartbeat.
Christy provides clients with an unprecedented commitment to marketing and closing a sale—she approaches each project with commitment to see it through including an ability to problem solve and get a property bought or sold!
Peabody has significant land holdings across the nation, and handles the majority of all real estate transactions in-house. We hired Christy to market and sell a complex ranch with a luxury home. Her connections and knowledge of land, water/minerals produced a successful close in just over a year. Her hustle and determination made it happen!
“Christy knows real estate. She will not inflate expectations to get a listing. She has been honest with me. I appreciate her professionalism. I trust her to advise me.”
“In the 13 years that we’ve worked with her, across multiple transactions, Christy Belton has always brought a unique capability of real estate expertise, combined with ranching insight and respect for the land. These talents were especially evident in the very complex sale of our family’s legacy ranch, the Home Ranch in Clark, CO. Brokering a sale which balances the complexities of multiple family interests, unique buyer demands, and the conservation and ranching ethos of our valley is no simple task – it requires a swift intelligence, the ability to listen closely to the both the sellers’ and buyers’ needs, and the deftness to negotiate thorny issues with decisiveness and resolve. We have seen many times over that these are the qualities that one can expect from Christy any time that she enters a deal. We feel immensely fortunate to have worked with Christy in the past and we would not hesitate to work with her again.”
