Christy Hovey has been selling real estate since 2005 and has weathered the market through every season. She’s always enjoyed working in residential resale, new construction home sales, and real estate investment acquisition. She closely watches local and national real estate and financial reports so she can educate her clients and peers on what the market is doing. She says, “My number one goal in serving my clients is to ensure that they feel completely at ease with the buying or selling process and every concern is addressed before, during, and after the transaction.”
One of Christy’s favorite parts of the business is, “Helping to facilitate making dreams come true.” She says, “I’m a tenacious advocate for my clients and will work tirelessly on their behalf. I also enjoy working with all of the practitioners within the real estate industry and believe as we all work together collectively, we can make amazing things happen for our clients individually.”
There are so many pieces that must fit together properly to ensure a smooth and successful transaction for clients. Christy says, “I’ve seen and successfully dealt with almost everything that can come up during a real estate transaction. My experience with contracts, negotiation, conflict resolution, and identifying (and avoiding) potential problems really helps my clients get what they need.”
Christy is a Boise native—calling the North End home throughout her childhood and then graduating from Boise High School. She then attended BSU, AMU, and UC Berkeley. Growing up, her family owned the oldest and largest department store in downtown Boise, (The Mode Ltd.) and so she’s always had a strong interest in growing healthy local businesses and commerce. She’s been a consultant for many startups, is a published author, and speaks regionally on the topics of marketing and digital marketing trends and strategies. In 2014, she was a recipient of the Idaho Business Review’s Women of the Year award.
Christy lives with her husband, three of her four children (her oldest is an esthetician), and her three pets. Christy volunteers extensively within the Treasure Valley and sits as VP on the board of The Idaho Writers Guild, along with mentoring teens and adults during National Novel Writing Month. She enjoys camping, golfing, snow skiing, water skiing, riding her motorcycle, and biking on the Boise Greenbelt. She’s extremely proud to call the Treasure Valley her home and always enjoys helping others call it ‘home’ as well.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Our first experience with Christy was when we relocated here from California. Dealing with a purchase from out of state is quite stressful but Christy's excellent communication before, during and after the transaction assured us that we made the best choice for an agent. We contacted her to list that first Idaho home and help us find a new one closer to our family. She made our wish come true! Christy is an awesome lady, she really cares about her clients. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, her expertise is highly commendable. Our experience with Christy has earned her "10" stars in our book! - kb1llady
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christy listens to what you’re looking for in purchasing a home and works within your price range to find it. She is quick to respond to questions and is very knowledgeable about the legalities of purchasing a property, making it as stress-free as possible - zuser20160831160028973
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I am incredibly happy I had Christy as my agent for my first home purchase. She guided me through the whole process and provided her honest opinion and advice throughout. You can tell she cares about her clients and has their best interests at heart. For that reason, she did not come off as a salesperson and I am so grateful for that. Looking at homes with her was actually a fun experience. The Boise market is very competitive for buyers in my price range and Christy was able to work through the challenges and get me the home I wanted (I am very picky). I consider her a friend and would recommend her to anyone. Plus, she sends out home design emails and has the cutest taste. - Lindsay Castano
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I absolutely loved working with Christy! She made the process of buying my first home incredibly easy and fun and was there for me every step of the way. If I could do it all over again the only thing I would change is that I would have taken the leap sooner! - camelynrg14
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christy is such an outstanding realtor! One of the listings she showed us was the very day it came on market. We made an offer and it got excepted that night! She was instrumental in walking us through the process and we really felt like she was in "our corner". Christy is extremely knowledgeable with the negotiation, inspections, generally the whole home buying process and is very patient and easy to work with. She wants the best home for you and you definitely feel that. We felt like we had a pro helping us and she doesn't pressure you to do anything you're not comfortable with. Whether it's your first home, or your tenth, Christy will do an amazing job for you! We will definitely be using her for any future homes. - slferris
