Christine was personable and worked hard to pull all the elements together to make the purchase happen. Once she knew what I was looking for, she had a number of properties to look at in all different price ranges. I would definitely recommend Christine as an expert in downtown living spaces.

My husband and I had a very satisfying experience dealing with Christine Schoonover.  I feel Christine and Sibcy Cline provided us with the very best home-buying service!

We were very satisfied with George's guidance when we purchased our new home!  He was always accessible and went the extra mile to be in contact with the seller's agent.  He understood our wants and needs.  He followed up after the sale.  His advice and expertise was valuable during the entire process.  We felt we were dealing with a friend.

We wanted to say “thank you” for all your help in the sale of our property.  You exceeded all our expectations!   From your initial proactive contact, through all the unexpected hiccups, your excellent follow up and communications, to handling the closing of the sale, your professionalism was clear.  Again, “THANK YOU” for everything!

542 Milton seems like a distant dream. I don’t miss a thing, even though I loved it over the years. Christine, thanks for letting me know what is happening in this great city of ours with you frequent newsletter. I love living downtown and really enjoy just going to my new place, watching some cable and reading. You two have made my life in the city a real pleasure!

I recently sold my condo with the formidable help of George Verkamp. I 'd like to tell you that all went as planned from the get go, but when your agent calls you to tell you that the buyer didn't get his loan the day of the closing, now that's something else.

For some reason, when George told me everything would by fine, I knew he would take care of business. Normally I would have flipped out, but George’s experience and know how from the beginning made all the difference in the world.

I just want to say that I would recommend George to any of my friends, he is a true gentlemen and he knows his stuff. Even though my condo wasn't the biggest sale, less than 100K, George treated me and gave me the service like I was selling a million dollar mansion.

I know George has been in the business for a while, but for me, I think it's still worth mentioning.

Thank you very much!

I would like to thank Sibcy Cline for the excellent assistance we received in selling our home on Liberty Hill this month.  Christine Schoonover and George Verkamp are two assets you must be proud of.  Their assiduous employment of a winning combination of energy, skill and experience gives them the edge in a tough market and cuts the difference between a sale and no sale.  I count myself fortunate to have asked them to list our house and wanted you to know of my appreciation.

Christine was very professional and very helpful to us through the entire process. It is very difficult for a young single mother to deal with something like this and Christine helped Shelly in wonderful fashion through all the various issues that occurred.

The house is absolutely "perfect" for Shelly and Alyssa and we are all so grateful that we were able to work everything out to everyone's satisfaction.  Thank you.




"George and Christine handled the sale of our home in Newport in a professional manner and in several situations went above and beyond. We were absentee sellers so in addition to handling the sale of the home, they made sure the home was always in condition to be shown and helped us with keeping it clean and presentable."

George and Christine's knowledge of the alternative financing tools available in this tough economic market was essential in getting the sale completed. They were able to navigate through the required documents and successfully assisted the buyer in obtaining financing.

The handling of the closing was superb. Minimal effort was required from us, and we did not have to travel to Newport for the closing, thus saving us time and travel expenses. Overall the sale of our home was handled professionally in a very difficult economic time. We highly recommend them anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"While I am not overjoyed about not seeing you, George and my other fine neighbors at Park Place, I do hope to stop by there when I'm in town so perhaps we can say hi again. You and George are pros...and your sense of humor is an added plus...thank you for tending to the many details, from the condo staging to the final intricacies of closing.......all the best to you guys!"

Dave Berger


"I recently worked with George Verkamp on the purchase of our new office building in the Hyde Park area. George was nothing but a pleasure to deal with and I found him to be extremely professional. As buyers we had our choice of who to engage and we chose Mr. Verkamp because of his excellent reputation. We were not disappointed especially given his attention to detail and his personal touch. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a full service real estate agent."

Hugh Haller, Camping & Education Foundation

She was always punctual & accountable, sensitive to the emotional side of the selling and buying What else can I say !"

"I had a great experience working with George Verkamp. He was kind, compassionate, timely, and very experienced. He went out of his way several times to personally meet me at the condo and work through items that we had. He sincerely cared about what I needed from my side, and was quick to tackle obstacles. I highly recommend working with George."

Kati Bakes


"Working with Christine to sell our home and purchase a new one was a real pleasure. We wanted an agent with experience and enthusiasm, for sure, but we also wanted one who's a straight-shooter, one who "calls 'em as she sees 'em." Christine was all that and more. She’s a great agent and wonderful person, to boot. We recommend her highly."

Steve Kissing & Angie Nolte


"Over the past ten years, Christine and George have helped us buy two houses and sell one. Their knowledge of the Cincinnati market is extensive - especially in the city where we have chosen to live. Christine and George provide personal service and have the patience to help you find a home that is right for you. Their attention to detail, expertise in the buying and selling process and accessibility are really reassuring - they are always available when you need them!"

Lia Braaten-Hager & Bruce Hager


"Christine really took the time to understand my motivators and vision of my home - and turned that vision into a reality! Christine was extremely responsive to my requests and negotiated on my behalf in a highly effective and professional manner. Christine went the extra mile to leverage her highly professional network which enabled me to offer, finance and close my home purchase in record timing."

Tiffany Stevens, P & G


"Christine Schoonover always worked around our schedule being attentive to our needs. She lives, works, plays, and volunteers in downtown which affords her a knowledge of this community that can not be matched. Her knowledge of the real estate business is exemplary bar none. For us, there's no other agent."

Ginny & Mike Meyer
