Our family has dealt with Christine’s family since the 1980’s, starting with her father George, a humble beekeeper who passed away in 2012. He was a man ahead of his time who became an icon in the life insurance industry, a true gentleman and a nice guy. As they say, the apple does not fall far from the tree, and Christine has followed in her father’s footsteps. Christine is very smart. She is very hard working and diligent. She has a tremendous amount of experience and a large pool of resources from which to draw upon. She will do what is necessary in order to get the job done; done correctly; done on time. Though I literally have not seen Christine in many years, she still takes a genuine interest in my personal life and affairs. Christine is a beautiful person, and she cares. If you find yourself in a battle for success today, you would be well advised to have Christine Lengvari standing on your side.
