‟Chris was wonderful to work with. We met him by chance when we were looking at a house out of curiosity. We didn’t know what we wanted. He made a great first impression, so we decided to stick with him and we are so glad that we did. He helped us figure out what we wanted along the way. Chris has immeasurable patience and a calm and … collected demeanor. He is very prompt in answering emails and phone calls with answers to questions. He took us to the house we ended up purchasing at least 5 or 6 times before we made a decision. He chatted respectfully with the many family members who wanted to see the home as well. He held our 6 month old daughter for an hour and a half when the designer came to see the house. He counseled us on pricing, insurance, inspections and was very transparent. He helped us negotiate with the sellers and their realtor so that everyone was happy with the deal they got. He referred us to a painter, carpet guy, power washer and others who will help us get the house the way we want it at a reasonable cost. He offered to help us move. He offered us his friendship since we are relatively new to the area. He gave us a lovely and thoughtful gift at the closing. He even helped arrange a meeting with the sellers so that they could show us the idiosyncrasies of the house and we wound up becoming friendly with them as well. All in all, this was the warmest, fuzziest experience we have ever had with a realtor, and we have had several that left us frustrated. He is genuinely caring and will do whatever you need to make sure you are satisfied. I couldn’t wait to write this review so others could be certain that they were choosing a fantastic realtor. Thank you Chris” Read More ▾
‟We are so lucky to know Chris! We met him back in September when we put through a request to see a house we found on zillow. We immediately felt at ease with him and looked forward to every interaction we had with him throughout our house hunt. He is extremely kind and has the patience of a saint (he put up with our pickiness for several months!). … He is extremely knowledgeable; and what he didn't know, he quickly found out for us. When we had an issue with our lender, Chris immediately put us in touch with a lender he knows and trusts. When we panicked about little things, his calm demeanor and great sense of humor helped calm us down. He's a great negotiator, and he always gave us solid advice. We trust him completely. Through the eight month process of looking at houses up until our closing yesterday, Chris went from being just our realtor to a very dear friend. Working with Chris isn't WORKING--it's hanging out with a great friend who just happens to be helping you buy your dream home” Read More ▾
