Ronald Christopher & Associates is veteran owned & operated and was established in 2013 by Ron & Tina Saporito. The boutique real estate and mortgage office offers a comprehensive range of real estate services along with mortgage financing options. Our boutique office truly offers you an individualized service with one stop for all your real estate needs.
Here are some of the things we can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! We will work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. We can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. We can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

RONALD CHRISTOPHER AND ASSOC.
"I have known Tina for over 5 years and she has helped me with numerous real estate transactions. She first assisted me with my vacation rental, which later turned into a long term rental. She is very attentive and pays attention to the little details. She's informative and offers solutions when needed. When the time came, I choose Tina to help me with the sale of both of my properties in La Quinta. All of my transactions went smoothly and both homes sold within a week of being on the market. I highly recommend Tina and will refer friends to her in the future."
