Christine Foster & Associates
Verger Mortgage and Investments

When you step inside the offices of Christine Foster & Associates and Verger Mortgage and Investments, you will be greeted by a staff with almost a century of real estate and mortgage experience. And as the key with most businesses, the key to success starts at the top.

Christine Foster has spent 30 years in the real estate business, and over 20 years of that in Nevada County's market. Until forming her own company in 2009, she had been the top producing agent for Paul Law Realty since 1988.

As busy as she's been professionally, however, she's been even busier giving back to the community. She served on the Nevada City Council form 1992-95, including a year as vice mayor, then represented the 1st District on the Nevada County Board of Supervisors.

In addition, Christine is a former board member of both the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and Music in the Mountains, a Lifetime Member of the Miner's Foundry and has been honored as Woman of the Year in the 3rd Assembly District and recipient of the Nevada County Board of Realtors' Community Service Award.

"There are great opportunities for the consumer in a volatile market but it is absolutely necessary to have experienced representation and people committed to getting you what you want. We have that team" says Christine.

In organizing a team that would reflect her business philosophy and goals, Christine brought two outstanding mortgage veterans - both who share her passion for community volunteerism.

Larry Ormsby, is a 40 year real estate, title, escrow and mortgage professional. He was most recently senior loan officer of Omega Home Loans in Grass Valley. Before that, Larry was President and CEO of Inter-County Title Company of Nevada County. He is a former president of Nevada County Little League and currently the Assistant Music Director at St. Patrick's Church. "Larry's vast experience in the real estate industry and knowledge of the financial markets brings immeasurable value to the team and to his clients."

Tina Roppa Skrukrud, a mortgage specialist, joined Christine Foster's new company from Omega Home Loans and before that was manager of Capital Mortgage in Grass Valley. Tina has served on the Pleasant Valley School Board since 2000 and is currently the president. She is Executive Director of the Penn Valley Youth Chamber and former Chair of the Principal's Advisory Committee at Nevada Union High School. Tina is always involved with Relay for Life and this year she was entertainment Chair as well as being the Chair of Nevada Union Grad Night. " Her commitment to the community and her clients is amazing. She networks wherever she is and she is everywhere!"

" We have a small, but highly effective group of of real estate specialists " noted Christine, " and we are all involved with the community and committed to providing the strong hands-on quality service that our clients deserve."
