Christine Routt

Christine Routt understands the logistics of moving a household better than most. For 21 years, as the wife of a project director in the construction, oil and gas industries, Christine nearly had a regular job selling and purchasing her family’s personal homes. “All of that relocation gave me a comprehensive perspective on all the various parts of a move,” she says. “I really have the logistics down. As a Realtor, I use my knowledge to help prepare relocation clients for what is coming in addition to helping them sell or purchase. My concern for clients is genuine; I’ve been there so many times. I am with my clients every step of the way, from when they first consider a home sale or purchase to when they put that last box by the curb.”

Prior to her career in residential real estate, Christine was a legal assistant for several law firms and worked in the corporate licensing department of Houston-based Brown and Root Engineering and Construction Company (now KBR Engineering and Construction Group). She credits her legal background and detailed knowledge of corporate contracts with training her to be extremely organized and focused on the fine points as well as the big picture in each transaction. Christine is also an excellent negotiator.

Christine was born and raised in Pasadena, California, and married into a Houston real estate family. Her late mother-in-law, Eloise Routt, was a top producer with K. L. McGuirt, a premier residential firm based in the Memorial area in the 1970s and 1980s.

When Christine, her husband and their children lived in Houston for five years during one of their many moves, they resided in his childhood home in Memorial Forest and the children attended Frostwood Elementary, Memorial Middle and Memorial High schools.

Working for her community is important for Christine. She serves on the HOA for her subdivision as well as The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Livestock Committee, and contributes to the Houston Westchase Rotary Club. Christine’s leisure time is spent with her husband, family and friends walking, golfing, horseback riding, swimming, reading and fishing.
