Chuck Husting and Christina Jhun Hopkins have developed a sophisticated high-end boutique real estate business with global reach. They have conducted transactions in notable locales such as Santa Monica’s full-service Ocean Towers co-op, the Huntington Palisades, Westwood Corridor full-service properties, Montecito, the Venice Silicon Beach Lofts, and Pacific Coast Highway/Malibu. They market and sell properties, represent buyers, manage properties, and assist owners with renovations and staging.
Chuck and Christina’s client base will attest to their hand-held approach in which they treat clients like family. They are not short cut “just get the sale” agents. The goal is to maximize the results every time. By combining their boutique model and personal skill sets with Sotheby’s International Realty’s global marketing and PR reach, the marketing exposure they achieve for listings is extremely effective. They offer a mix of corporate marketing and sales experience which they draw from to smartly position a property, market it strategically, and aggressively negotiate the highest price possible.
Chuck and Christina have an excellent track record of successfully managing sophisticated sales involving complex trusts, title issues, and sensitive family or privacy requirements. They welcome collaboration with a client’s trust attorney, trustees, real estate attorney, or wealth/business manager whenever necessary.
“Our approach is always to assist our clients in any way we can, which often includes helping a client “tune up” or stage a property when we think it will make a substantial difference in the sale price,” they say. “Every scenario is different and we are sensitive to the fact that the ‘space’ we work in significantly impacts the personal lives of our clients. We enjoy what we do and we take pride in making our clients look good. We care about every nuance of selling a home.”
