I could not give Christina Forbis a higher recommendation to be your real estate agent  It was a very, very difficult decision to put our family home up for sale.  Thankfully, we listened to a recommendation to talk with Christina.  It very quickly became apparent that she was the person to help us.  Not only did she fully grasp all aspects of the real estate market, but truly empathized with the emotional impact to our family to have to say goodbye to a place we all loved. We live out of state and needed a person that had superior customer service and was a good communicator.  Christina was with us every step of the way and kept us regularly informed on the status of the sale.  Christina also carefully and masterfully guided us in each step of the sale.  From setting the selling price, staging of the home, navigating thru multiple offers and bringing the accepted offer to a closed sale.  She was excellent in negotiations with prospective buyers and helped us to obtain the best possible price on the sale. Christina also has excellent contacts in the area and referred us to several individuals that were professional, nice to work with, and important links to help with the sale of the home.   In summary, Christina is not only a top-tier real estate agent in all business aspects, but also a professional and fantastic person to work with. 


This is the second time Richard has served as a broker for us. On both occasions his attention to detail, communication skills and hands-on involvement were exceptional. We would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent to represent them in either the sale or purchase of real property.

My wife and I made the decision to move across the country from Arizona to Bluffton I the Spring of 2019.  Having a child still in high school made the window for this move quite small.  Diana Sroufe made this transition possible and provided us exactly what we needed.  We flew into town to look at homes on Easter weekend and Diana was awesome!  Not only did she show us what we wanted to see....even though she knew we would not pursue, but gave us insight and ideas as we viewed our first few homes together.  Diana listened and immediately came up with additional homes to view based on our criteria.

Can we look at that one again?  I am sure this routine can be annoying, but Diana was there to show us listings....and even go back more than a few times.

When we were ready, Diana took charge and our offer was submitted and accepted prior to our arrival in town for the second round of viewings.  Diana quickly took action and even had the home inspected while we were in town.  As we left, Diana had a complete list of preferred vendors for all of the things we needed and they were all top-notch.

Working with Diana was the best decision and a major reason this move was stress-free."

Christina has been our realtor for the past five years. We were searching for the “perfect spot” at Hilton head and she helped us find a lovely one! She was very patient during our long search of properties.  She was always available, courteous, and professional. Christina went above and beyond what would be expected by a real estate agent. Bud and I appreciate her help and recommend Christina highly!

Bud and Marise Kuhlke

Based on recommendations from several friends as well as personal knowledge, we chose Christina Forbis as our realtor. She worked with us throughout every aspect of the sale of our home.  Christina proved to be the ultimate professional and the best in the business.

Her intimate knowledge of the Port Royal marketplace combined with her attention to every detail and her willingness to “go the extra mile”, led to a successful sale from listing through closing within 30 days.

There is no doubt in our minds that Christina is the realtor you want to be with in the sale of your home.  She is simply beyond compare!

I could not be happier with the hard work Christina put into selling my house in Port Royal.  If you are looking to sell your house and you want it done fast and for top dollar, please call Christina.

Last Spring, David [Hill] helped my husband and I find a perfect house in Hilton Head.  We started looking at houses when we were vacationing in March and ended up closing on a house in July.  David listened well to what our interests were in a house, sending us information weekly on houses that were available.  Going through the process of buying the home, we had many questions which David was always eager to answer, never making us feel uncomfortable to ask yet another question.  We would highly recommend David Hill to either sell your home or to use him to help find that perfect vacation home.

Dan and Mary Ann

I've never worked with a company that had such in-depth knowledge of their market and their customers! I would highly recommend Charter One Realty to anyone looking for the home of their dreams in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area.

Lucy R

We met Christina when looking at a house she was showing.  She had also been recommended by the agent who helped us find our previous home on Hilton Head and was now retired.  After falling in love with the home, we asked Christina to look at our existing home and ended up having her list it.  She did an excellent job marketing our home and was on site for issues that arose when we were out of town.  When a seemingly good offer was made, we accepted and Christina became our battlefield commander as the pending sale turned into a nightmare of frivolous issues from the other party.  Her professional demeanor and extensive experience guided us through the quagmire and resulted in closing successfully.  We highly recommend Christina as an excellent realtor and as importantly, a really good person!

Selling our home was an emotional process, but Christina walked with us every step of the way. Tapping into her expertise, professionalism, and understanding, Christina made our experience painless. We highly recommend you call Christina Forbis for any real estate transaction. You’ll get peace of mind along with an excellent realtor!

Scott Collins is an excellent realtor, personable, knowledgeable, and very responsive. We could not have found a better realtor to work with!!!!! We moved from out of state and he worked with us to find just the right home. Buyer 2021.

Patti Held

Working with Sabrina was the highlight of my moving experience. I was only able to visit houses with her for one day, but she made the most of that time and was really able to home in on exactly what I wanted. Over the next couple of months, as I worked to sell my home in New Jersey, Sabrina sent me emails of current listings tailored to every detail I had mentioned during our one day together. When the listing for my house came up I wasn't able to make the trip down to see it myself. Sabrina did a virtual walk-through with me and gave me her honest opinion that she thought this house could be the right fit. I trusted her so much that I bought my house site unseen! Throughout it all Sabrina was kind, professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. She made my home-buying experience a breeze, which was much appreciated since my home-selling experience in New Jersey was a nightmare. I would highly recommend Sabrina to anyone looking to buy a home in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area.

Kurt Roessner

Richard was fully up to date on market conditions very professional in all areas of the process of selling my property. He kept me up to date at all times, answered any questions that I had; he took care of all details. It was a pleasure to work with Richard in the sale of my property which was completed quickly. This was the fifth time that Richard has worked with me in selling or buying property. 


My wife and I made a great choice when we selected Christina Forbis of Charter One as our realtor.  Christina has a real 'can do' spirit and knows the business and the market. She took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for in our new house.  Despite the fact that we were working in a difficult market for buyers with limited inventory, she was patient with us and eventually found the perfect house for us in our preferred neighborhood.  Christina is super easy to work with & totally rocks!  

David Renbarger Irene Benavides

My experience was great with Ric. He has a second to none knowledge of Hilton Head Island, and made my buying process so easy. Most importantly he took a certain set of guidelines and goals that I had, mixed those with his knowledge of the Hilton Head real estate market, and really helped me find a great buy.

Gil H.

Our experience with Christina Forbis in purchasing a house on Hilton Head Island couldn’t have been better! Her ability to dial in a house for our needs, and point us in the right direction was fantastic. During the process of closing on the house,  her communication was outstanding in solving any problems. After we purchased the house, her help and guidance in selecting the right contractors for our remodel needs was invaluable. It certainly helps to have a person who is dialed in on Hilton Head Island!  

Dean Courser

Ric was always supportive, helpful and quick. He never got frustrated with our questions and understood exactly what we were looking for. He always answered our calls no matter the time. He also was very prompt is email responses as well. Ric always listened to our needs and never made us feel rushed. Ric always explained the next steps and what each step entailed for us as the process went along. He has very vast knowledge of the area and how the mortgage process works.

Rob Moore of Patrick and Taylor Real Estate at Charter One Realty, successfully sold our condo at full asking price.  He was extremely professional, and very easy to deal with. Rob, acting as a sellers agent, made a long distance transaction seamless and uncomplicated.   If ever we need a realtor again,  he would be our first and ONLY choice. Thanks again for a job well done!

Michael & Malinda Wirosloff

My husband and I were treated as if we were the only client and our agent negotiated the entire sale with our best interests in mind. I never realized how valuable that was until I experienced it. Outstanding experience!
