“I have always had an innate curiosity for the details of Washington DC as a well-designed city, particularly the history of real estate design and development. That curiosity still energizes my work in representing my clients. I put myself in their life situation and work for their objectives. This philosophy gives me a deep sense of pride in trying to be of maximum service to my buyers and sellers; clients who often become enduring friends”.-Christine
About Christine Basso Fitzgerald
Realtor representation is about so much more than showing homes and writing contracts. It is a process that involves so many questions. “Can I remove this wall? If I sell my house now, how fast will I have to move out? How can I get my place ready without ruining my marriage?”
For two decades, I have invested myself in finding solutions and answers (good ones, specifically) to these questions. I ensure that every step of the transaction is organized, transparent and that we are utilizing vetted lenders and vendors to accomplish our goals smoothly. I consider my own home my best investment and took every step to ensure that it fit my lifestyle needs and that the property would be a good investment over time; I do the exact same for my buyers and sellers with painstaking attention to detail and prompt response.
On a personal note - because that’s what real estate is all about - I live in Georgetown, with my family; John (old), Madeleine (18), Oliver (3) and Brando (16 - the Shi Tzu with nine lives). I am an involved daughter, a grateful mother, and a patient wife (John would agree, most of the time). I have 25-year friendships with classmates from Georgetown Visitation. I thrive underwater (lifetime long distance swimmer). I enjoy oil painting and obsessively look at interior design photos. I am an avid reader, 37 adult books for 2020 (337 child books - some three times in a row!). I detest clutter and am often donating things my family members do not approve of. I want to succeed at helping the people around me; this drive becomes a great asset to my clients. I am optimistic (except when I am pessimistic), I have a strong work ethic from my father and an intuitive sense about other’s feelings. I have strong confidence in my ability to help my clients and that confidence will be evident when you meet me.

WHAT CHRISTINE’S CLIENT’S HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HER EXPERTISE:
Seller, Dupont Circle Mrs. Katherine Keller
“Christine Basso’s energy and integrity are unparalleled in my experience. She went out of her way to facilitate our move and the subsequent sale of our condo. She was thorough, professional, and compassionate as we sold our home of twenty years. I look forward to continuing our professional relationship the next time we move and would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking to sell or buy a home”.
