Christine Labelle

Christine has been an active Arizona Real Estate agent since 2005 and has seen the  profound growth that has happened in our state firsthand. She has walked alongside both buyers, sellers and investors during highs and lows. Christine brings a unique knowledge of history, trends, value and long term relationships to her practice. Raising 20 year old twins, while devoting time and energy to furthering the Realtor standards and profession, she is a member of the Phoenix, Arizona, and National Association of Realtors. She has served as a volunteer to the local MLS, has served as an appointed  member of the Town of Paradise Valley Historical Advisory Committee, and is currently an elected official on her Town Council, as well as running a successful recording studio with her husband. Her reputation, work ethic and authenticity is something she brings to every area of her life. She values the relationships she builds with each client and has served many of them time and time again, which is reflected in the time and energy she has spent
training and building a Team that holds the same values. Christine’s  business is centered on the vast and deep relationships she has built over her 45 years in the community, both with clients, vendors and agents alike. Team Labelle’s business has a remarkably impressive repeat and referral clientele. Her expertise over her 20 years in real estate includes, but is not limited to, land and lots, investment opportunities, and primary and secondary homes. Currently an empty nester with her twins in college, she stays busy connecting with family and friends on her “down time” and enjoys traveling, yoga, fitness, paddleboarding, hiking, visiting local sites, live music, and discovering new things to do in AZ and abroad.

Our Story

Team Labelle evolved organically, from a place of necessity and desire. After 12 years in the business and with two teenage girls at home, Team Leader and 16 year Realtor Christine Labelle found her work days getting longer and her responsibilities greater. She knew she would have to find a balance between work and life, without sacrificing her commitment to her clients.

Relationship building and trust within and across the Transaction is a core value of Team Labelle. Focusing on a boutique and personal approach to Real Estate, The Team is encouraged to create purposeful and individual marketing strategies, take time with each client to get to understand their needs and desires, and to enjoy the process of helping usher clients into a new lifestyle or investment.

Christine’s sister, Denise Labelle Serro, earned her Real Estate license and joined her in helping with much of the back end of things: Transactions, Inspections, Client Follow ups; and also Showings and Open Houses as needed. It is a great collaboration, and Denise is now Lead Transaction Coordinator for Team Labelle.

With the Market Booming, Christine asked longtime friends (and Christine’s twins’ former Nanny!) Rachel Kolk Salkin to join her as Marketing Assistant, and Kristen Gavelek and Michelle Thompson to collaborate with her as her new Agents!

Each member brings something unique and valuable to the mix. As a client of Team Labelle, you will always have a trusted advisor you can count on to be there every step of the way.

Team Labelle’s client base returns time and time again over decades, and the bulk of their work is referral driven.
