According to Christine, "The process that RealOpen uses is absolutely reliable and foolproof."

In conversation with Forbes, she went on to say: "A lot of brokerages are very wary about accepting crypto because they don't understand the inner workings of it, so that's why it's very difficult for agents to do these transactions." 

How did Christian Richard and Christine Quinn meet?

Lovebirds Christian and Christine met in 2019 through a mutual friend after Christian needed help hunting for a new home. At the time, Christine told People magazine: "She said, 'If it doesn't work out, that's fine — he's looking for a home,' so I could help him with real estate if he wanted."
