"It was a pleasure working with Christel VanAssche on the sale of my home. She knows the market well and had no problem taking into consideration all of the upgrades I had done to my home when determining the fair market price. Her reasoning made sense, she was bold in her pricing and her follow-up was excellent. I had multiple offers in just three days with a sale price significantly above what several other realtors had suggested. She is one of the BEST!" - Angela T.
"Christel VanAssche was recommended to us by a coworker who had utilized her expertise in the past. We chose to use her to buy our first home.

Will highly recommend to friends or family in the future!" - Nikki & Brandon L.
"Working with Christel VanAssche and Gilpin Realty has proven to be a rewarding relationship on numerous occasions. Christel is experienced and knowledgeable about the market place, she is professional and conscientious in every way. I would not hesitate to call upon Christel and Gilpin in the future with any of my real estate needs." - Cochran Construction LLC
"She is a Superwoman among real estate agents and I am happy to have the chance to recommend her. I am so grateful to have had Christel VanAssche as our agent. I just popped in one day at Gilpin and she happened to be the agent on duty. She listened carefully to all my specs and preferred locations. She immediately began to send me listings in my price range in areas I was interested in. Christel always answered all my texts, emails and calls immediately. She always answered with a “yes”, “of course” or “I can do that”. She stayed for the 3 hour inspection of the house. We were in a time crunch between our old house and the new one and she did everything she could to make the closing go quickly. She also advised us on matters such as bidding and contractors." - Jill B.K.
"Christel VanAssche is exactly what I want in a Real Estate Broker. She is a good listener, responsive, and experienced. In the course of 2 months she handled 3 transactions for us, professionally and with a sense of urgency. My strongest recommendation!" - Peter M.
"My husband and I were wondering aimlessly thorough out Snohomish County looking for a house to purchase. We were discouraged by what we were seeing in the market, so we decided to seek out a realtor. We had no notion of which realtor to work with. One day we were passing by Gilpin Realty in Snohomish and decided to stop in, just to see if this was a real estate company to consider working with. Christel VanAssche greeted us, she asked all the pertinent questions and got an idea of what we were looking for. Christel told us she had just viewed an area in Lake Stevens that the houses were incredible for the price they were asking, she certainly did her homework and she was right. Christel gave us a brochure, directions to get there and told us to view it and if it was something we liked she would set up a meeting with the agent on site. Long story short, we loved the place and we bought a house there! We probably would have missed the opportunity to purchase this home if it weren’t for Christel, she’s knowledgeable of the inventory of houses for sale, she stays on top of any issues and nips them in the bud. Christel hit a home run for us, we’re very happy with our new home." - Jake & Kathy T.
"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with a real professional. We started working with Christel VanAssche when we decided to look for a new home. She understood from the beginning what we were looking for in a new home and wasted no time showing us only the homes that fit our requests. We found our new home in October and were moved in before Christmas. Christel was such a pleasure to work with through our home shopping process, we decided to use her to market our old home. Christel not only got us our asking price but our house sold the first day she put it on the market. We couldn't have been happier with the results." - Bob P.
"For first time homebuyers, searching for a home is a stressful process. Christel VanAssche was amazingly helpful and a great resource of knowledge. She explained the process in a way we could understand and really helped us gain an understanding of the procedures. She was always accommodating as far as our limited hours of availability and even relieved some of the stress by meeting with one of the inspection guys when we were unavailable due to work. And most importantly, she helped us find a home that met all of our needs and fit well within our price range. She was by far the most helpful person we worked with in purchasing our home and we definitely will and have recommended her to other friends looking to purchase homes. If we need to go through this process again, she will be our first call. Thanks Christel!" - Katie C. & Charlie H.
"As an investor Christel VanAssche has represented us on the sale of multiple properties. Over the years we have had many realtors sell houses for us but Christel’s attention to detail makes her one of the top agent/brokers in my opinion. From her talent in staging to using professional photography to capture the full potential, the presentation is outstanding. Couple this with her personality, her customer interaction and her years of experience in negotiating the deal for the best possible outcome, make her a great agent." - Richard W.

"Christel VanAssche was amazing to work with when selling & buying our home. Our house sold after 1 week of being on the market; she promptly came to get pictures and have it listed after we contacted her. She also facilitated an open house the first week which ended up with an offer we couldn't turn down that same night. It happened so fast and we have her to thank for that. At this point we were anxious to find our new house, she helped us with this and showed us houses we were interested in on short notice. We were able to make an offer on a house and close the exact same day as the house we were selling. It was amazing, especially because we had a new baby at the time! Definitely recommend her if you are thinking about buying or selling a house!" - Sam & Shanda P.
"Christel VanAssche was our agent for our property purchase a couple of years ago. We had looked a bit with 2 other agents, but when we met Christel, she quickly zeroed in on what we were looking for. She was helpful through the purchasing process, and she was also very helpful getting us information in appealing our recent tax assessment with Snohomish County assessors.We were so impressed with how quickly she was able to figure out what we were looking for and show us appropriate properties. Thanks Christel!" - Allen & Margaret K.
"I couldn't have hoped for a better first-home-buying experience. I was referred to Christel VanAssche from a friend, and it's easy to see why. Christel helped me close earlier than expected and had me in my new home in no time. Thank you SO MUCH, Christel! You will forever be my "go to" for all my real estate needs!" - Kate
"Christel VanAssche helped us to sell our home in Marysville. We were prepared for a long process but our home sold within days with multiple offers and over asking-price. She was extremely professional and helpful throughout the transaction. Christel also helped us to search for and eventually find our new home in Edmonds. We spent hours and hours with her looking at properties and she was patient, helpful, and gave us very honest/ constructive feedback. We are now in the house of our dreams and I can’t say thank you enough for making our home sale and purchase such a great experience. Thank you Christel!!" - Jenny K.

"Christel VanAssche, I'm not sure if we will ever be able to say thank you enough for everything you did for us, Christel. We had so many hurdles, because you had our best interest in mind you saved us from mistakes and kept us on track to purchase our first home. Your dedication and persistence allowed us to spend our first Christmas as a family in our new home. You gave us one of the greatest gifts that neither one of us thought was possible in 2016. We LOVE you, Christel!" - Brandie M.

"We bought our first home in Snohomish in June 2015, and Christel VanAssche was amazing beginning to end. Our home search took us less then two weeks until she found us our dream home and placed an offer. Christel was very patient and helpful answering questions. She was very professional yet very personable - she made our first home buying experience a special one. She's a very sincere person who would go miles to make things happen and we are forever grateful for her help. We will use Christel for all our future home purchasing needs. Thank you Christel!!" - The Bogue Family
"Christel VanAssche is the consummate professional. From start to finish Peter and I were taken care of and walked through the process of buying our first house. When there were any delays in the process, Christel was right there to sort it out and keep the momentum moving forward. I appreciate that Christel cared about us as people first and buyers secondly. Not only did she help us find our dream home, she kept us organized and on track with all of the paperwork and details needed in purchasing. I highly recommend her because of her ongoing support in the process, punctual communication, organized hand and her depth of knowledge from years of experience. Thank you again Christel!" - Margaret M.
"Our family was recently in the market for a new home. We ended up spending our Saturdays driving to open houses. We met Christel VanAssche at an open house. She showed us several properties, but none were perfect for us. Soon she called us because she thought she had found the one for us. We went to look at it and fell in love. It was our dream home. Unfortunately, we were outbid. We were heartbroken, but she took us to look at other houses and we were convinced we’d never find one we liked as much as the one we lost. Soon after I expressed my sadness over losing that home she called us with a miracle. She’d spoken with the developer about building us a similar house on a lot in the same neighborhood (next door to be exact). Today we are living in our dream house and like it more than the home we lost out on. Christel worked her magic and changed our lives. She is the agent I recommend to friends and family in the market to buy a new home. I’ll be forever grateful because I know if it wasn’t for her we would have never had an opportunity like this." - The Love Family
"For my first home buying experience, I couldn’t ask for a better agent. Christel VanAssche was knowledgeable, informative, and was a great resource. She was frequently in touch and personable.
