Christie Smith


Since starting her real estate career in 2005, Christie successfully made a name for herself as a Young Gun in the real estate industry, being awarded SOLD Magazines Top under 30’s Agent in 2009. Her success in real estate sales was evident in her commitment to outstanding customer service in the fast paced residential market of Pacific Pines, South East Queensland, a Stockland’s Master Planned community.

Christie worked alongside key personnel from the Stockland’s Sales office and was responsible for the smooth transition of land transactions for sellers, allowing them to successfully complete their purchase of new vacant land when upgrading in the master planned community.

During her time with LJ Hooker Pacific Pines, Christie formed strong connections with the local builders both large and small. Christie’s focus turned to provide solutions to builders that were building new homes (commonly known as Spec homes) and selling their completed product, which posed a fantastic opportunity for first home buyers and investors.

Christie’s desire for growth and opportunity coupled with her strong new home sales experience lead to her opening her own Real Estate Agency in the emerging suburb of Yarrabilba in 2014. Yarrabilba is a rapidly growing community in South East Queensland and the largest of the Lend Lease masterplan estates. Construction started in 2013 and will continue for approximately 30 years. In that time the estate will grow to 17,000 lots and an estimated 52,000 residents.

Christie open the doors of LJ Hooker Yarrabilba in 2014, and has grown from 2 directors, and 10 newly completed properties for sale and 3 properties under property management, to a thriving sales department responsible for 50% of residential house sales in the Yarrabilba area and over 400 properties under management.

Through outstanding customer service, experienced local people, great local knowledge and a community focus, the business has grown at a much faster rate than the original plan. With Christie’s leadership and vision, her team will continue to focus on the core values of customer service and local knowledge, but on a much larger scale.

Christie’s goal is to be one of the largest and most successful LJ Hooker agencies in Queensland with a great reputation for customer service.

Christie’s achievements have been recognised with awards for:

• Bronze Medallion, winner for LJ Hooker top performers

• Finalist for the LJ Hooker International Best New Talent – 2006

• LJ Hooker Multimillion Dollar Chapter – 5 consecutive years

• Sold Magazine Young Guns of Real Estate – Australia’s Top Agent Under 30 – 2009

Thank you Kerrie and the team at LJ Hooker Yarrabilba for your support and service during my tenancy with your agency. I can't thank you enough for looking after my best interests as a tenant and ensuring everything went smoothly and as stress free as possible.

Mieke - Tenant Yarrabilba

A very able and dedicated team working to ensure people come first and they have demonstrated that smart marketing coupled with great ideas equated to positive results for the buyer and the seller. I had a very humble experience with Christie Smith both from LJ Hooker where my land was sold very easily within a set period. We recommend LJ Hooker for related sales and all property related matters as they have very good local knowledge.

Intiaz - Yarrabilba

Christie Smith was amazing. Extremely helpful and always able to answer any questions. She made the process of purchasing a property much easier, especially when we were conducting business from interstate.

Kale Thomas

Christie Smith made our purchase so easy. Loved working with her. Christie was always there for us whenever we needed to ask any questions about the property. It would be a pleasure to buy another house through Christie Smith in the future.

Michael Wright

Christie Smith is a very professional real estate agent with a great knowledge of the local area. Christie is very passionate about her work and it shows when she is dealing with potential clients. I highly recommend Christie to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.

A. Stockill

Christie was absolutely wonderful! We had some issues with our bank and she was so understanding and helpful with communications to the builder. Christie went above and beyond even sending messages whilst I was away with my mother who was terminally ill just to let us know she was thinking of us. Christie made us feel welcome in our home even before it was ours. She helped my 4 year old son pick a room by pointing out the pros and cons of each room. Would also like to mention bonnee vitler!! She was fantastic and very knowledgable! Bonnee and Christie make a great team!

K. Lill

I bought an investment property through LJ Hooker Yarrabilba. I then engaged them as my rental agent as well. The service that I continually receive from LJH Yarrabilba is nothing short of exceptional. My investment property is immaculate, which is a direct reflection of the attention to detail of the team at LJH Yarrabilba. I highly recommend LJH Yarrabilba – nothing is ever a hassle and they treat both my property with respect – as though it was their own. Thank you Christie, Rachael and all of your team. I really appreciate what you do!

A. Bradford

What Christie doesn't know about real estate isn't worth knowing. Her ability to think outside the square to problem solve is impressive and she is incredibly knowledgeable and trustworthy.

C. Woodman & C. Holloway

Couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent to help us through buying our first home. We have already and will continue to recommend Christie to our friends and family.

E. Kelly & B. Manley

We recommend Christie to all family friends in fact we already have! Christie always kept in constant communication with us during the whole process, always polite and helpful no matter what time of day.

N. & K Paterson

Christie was very helpful and patient with us through the whole process and did a great job helping us get into our new home. Working with Christie and Bonnie was great.

N. Dirks and R. Purcell

I think the whole process that was within the scope of the Yarrabilba team ran smoothly and problem free

P_Thoroughgood Family Superfund BT Pty Ltd

If you want results you go to the best in the business. Thanks Christie for the amazing job you did again and may I add getting record pricing in the area. I will always recommend and use Christie Smith.

Paul P

I have passed on Christie's number to friends that I know for when they are ready to buy an IP in Yarra. My brother will also be using Natasha for his management when his IP is ready to kick off. I have no problem whatsoever, sending my referrals Christie's way. Having had a bad experience many years ago on the gold coast (Pines Realty), it feels good to have a reliable person holding the reigns of my investments.

G and S Dwyer Holdings Pty Ltd

To Christie and her team, Leah and myself would like to thank you for all the hard work and the effort that you put in to helping us buy our first house out here at Yarrabilba. Leah and myself are very happy with the house that we bought and would recommend Christie and LJ Hooker Yarrabilba to any one that would ask. Christie made it very easy and painless to buy our first house. Christie also helped with the little things such as getting our power and gas connected out here. Once again thank you to Christie for the new house and for making this experience so amazing and easy. Would buy a house from Christie again.

Damien and Leah Barbour

“In February 2013 my husband and I started what we believed would be the arduous task of buying our first home together since we both left the Royal Australian Navy. After attending an open home at a pretty house in a great area in Pacific Pines on a very wet and miserable Sunday of the Australia Day long weekend and then a second inspection at short notice during the following week, my husband and I contacted the selling agent Christie Smith of Raine and Horne Pacific Pines and let her know we wanted to make an offer. From that point on we were absolutely impressed by the forthright and professional manner in which Christie conducted all dealings and contact we made. Coming from a Defence background we were both very impressed by the straight forward and honest approach Christie takes with her clients. Every question asked was answered quickly and without real estate agent “fluff”. It was exactly what we needed and allayed any fears we had about buying our first home. Her experience and networks having been in the area for so long also assisted us in identifying a great solicitor to do our conveyancing and contact details for pest, building and pool inspections. Christie provided a “one stop shop” which in a stressful time like buying a house was an absolute godsend. I have no hesitation in recommending Christie as a highly professional and honest real estate agent whose integrity and commitment was evident in all our dealings with her.” Thanks again for all your help with buying the house.


We have worked with Christie on several occasions when we have sold our properties and have found her to be extremely professional and knowledgeable of the Realestate industry. We found that nothing is too much trouble and she does everything that she can to make sure your property is sold. Always available night and day and will always have time to speak to you how ever minor your query is. We have always gone to Christie to sell our properties regardless of who she is working for as we have a lot of respect for her as a person as we feel that it’s the person that sells your property and not a Real estate company……. Christie has a lot of contacts within the industry and the local area and due to this we have embarked on our current venture from her ideas and the experience with in the property industry. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Christie again or recommend her to any future buyers or sellers who were looking for the complete package to sell their property.

Caroline & Nick

We were lucky enough to stumble across Christie at an open home when we were looking to buy our first home. We found that once we told Christie of our needs she only showed us properties that would be of interest to us. Her commitment, professionalism and caring support towards us was outstanding. We eventually decided to build and even then Christie had the contacts, helping us with the purchase of our land and introducing us to a fantastic Spec Builder who we met with and since has built our fantastic home. Christie was available at our beck and call responding to every email and phone call, always available to listen and help, no matter what, whether it day or night, even after she had passed us over to the builder. We have no hesitation in telling all our friends, family and acquaintances about how truly fantastic she is and if and when we decide to sell…Christie will be the one we contact.
