Seller Benefits





When you’ve made the decision to list your house on the market, you want three things from the experience with your Realtor. You want the process to be simple, fast and profitable. I’m Christine Aldrete Banks, and I’ve got the tools and experience to make it all happen.

Here’s how it works when you list with me:

I showcase listings with drone aerial photography, custom floor plans, 3D interactive walk-through virtual tours, professional video, home tending, virtual and actual home staging, as well as featured ads in the real estate industry’s top and most highly syndicated magazines, in print and online.  Your property will be marketed locally and globally.  It will be featured not only in enhanced listings on Zillow and Trulia, but also exposed worldwide through the Homesandland.com.  I hold 1 of the top 3 market shares on Zillow, which affords me well in excess of 30K impressions per month, as well as, 80% of the Adwerx re-targeting ads, with over 600K impressions to date, for the zip code 78258.  Listings include ads in Homes and Land Magazine, which receives 1.5MM unique visitors to their website per month, and syndicates to 750+ additional websites, on top of the magazine distribution itself.  Additionally, I have highly active Facebook and Twitter pages, by the name of Stone Oak Living.  This puts me and my listing in front of thousands of highly targeted home buyers daily.  My listings sell quickly, and often with multiple offers, ensuring the best possible sale price for the seller.

The listing of your property will be designed with style, packed with details, and easy to navigate. With 3D Matterport technology by HouseLens and the innovative services of PlanOmatic, your listing will pop with features. Drone aerial, professional still photography, and production video offer tantalizing glimpses and ideal views of your property. Customized floor plans and interactive doll house walk through virtual tours allow viewers to see the home’s complete interior including dimensions, or zoom into specific areas with room labels and objects.

3D Virtual tours recreate the feeling of walking through an open house. This robust tool gives viewers a one-of-a-kind experience, with 24/7 access that enables them to linger over details as long as they like. Utilizing the newest technology, First Impression specializes in creating the most accurate, photo-realistic 3D floor plans and virtual reality tours. Your property is in the best of hands with the top provider of this powerfully advanced marketing tool. It’s an experience that’s seamless and immersive.

Actual and virtual home staging dress your home for the runway.  Vacant homes come to life and are instantly filled with pizzazz.  A cast of interior designers, landscapers, and home improvement contractors are standing by to bring  your home’s full potential to fruition.  Additionally, when a home sits empty for an extended period of time, basic maintenance can be neglected, lawn and garden or pool care can suffer, and the home value can become devalued. Your vacant home can be managed by America’s Hometenders, a professional home tending company. A trustworthy hometender will live in the property and keep the home well-maintained until it is sold.

Here’s the best part… the LUX Move Up by Christine Aldrete Banks: Upgrade to a New Home with a 1/2 Price Listing Fee.  Elevate your lifestyle when you purchase a new home of greater value and sell your existing home (priced at $200,000 or more) in the same year, and receive a rebate of 1/2 the listing fee! Downsize with reverse rebate as well.  Plus, faculty and staff of Judson ISD, NEISD, and NISD will receive a 15% discount on a single sale.

When you work with me, you know you’ve got an experienced partner you can trust.  I have acquired distinguished designations and certifications including:

CRS, Certified Residential Specialist, Council of Residential Specialists

SRS, Seller Representative Specialist, Seller Representative Specialists Council, Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers (CRB)

RSPS, Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist, The Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist Council, NAR

Luxury Home Marketing

San Antonio is a diverse and flourishing place to call home. But there are some homes that are truly exceptional, and that simply demand the very best. I know that my clients require a Realtor who has experience, extensive knowledge, and discretion when it comes to their unique properties and needs.

For sellers, I recognize that putting your property on the market is a personal and emotional experience. I respect the complexity of your decision, and I’ll represent your property in the manner it deserves.

When your luxury home is listed with me, I provide additional Premier Marketing which includes:

  • Aerial Photography
    • "Your Real Estate listings stand out from the competition with high quality aerial photography and video", such as that of , Prestige Aerial, which features "aerial tours highlighting the unique features of the property while generating situational awareness for out-of-town or prospective web buyers. Properties with aerial photos have been shown to capture increased interest over properties relying solely on ground-based vantages".
  • Virtual Staging
    • By using advanced rendering technology, we’re able to provide virtual home staging. A photo is taken of an empty space, then our staging team can add in designer couches, elegant rugs, lamps, and many other items to make an empty home look fully furnished and far more appealing.
  • Luxury Homes magazine advertisement
  • DuPont Registry magazine advertisement
  • Re/Max Collection magazine advertisement
  • Express News - "Gallery of Homes" advertisement
