We are so glad we took Chris's sage advice and sold our Mother's house in December. As he assured us, there was so little inventory on the market at that time that the house was sold in less than a week
and for more than 20% over the asking price. Once again, Chris's in-depth knowledge of the market, astute analyses and his exemplary negotiating skills resulted in a better-than-expected deal for us.
Wewere thrilled with the whole experience!
Between our two families, this was the third time we worked with Chris over the past four months. In each case, we either bought for under-market-rates or sold for 20% or more over the selling price.
This was not luck, it was Chris. Thank you, Chris!!!

When I first met Chris I felt right away that he would be knowledgeable but also easy to work with. Chris listened to my plans, needs, and views about the home and how to market it given current conditions. Chris provided market information that helped provide a very useful framework for determining how to price and market the home. The first steps included a list of improvements to get the home in prime selling condition; these improvements included landscaping (which was in progress but not completed at the time), coating the driveway, pressure washing the outside of the home, minor improvements such as doing paint touch-ups and removing unneeded furniture to prepare for professional staging. The interior of my home (along with outside patio areas) were staged with professionally arranged furniture, pictures, and plants; the final look of the home was a significant improvement in a few short but very busy weeks. The result was amazing with a ‘model home’ look and feel attracting a long list of interested buyers and agents with a sale price coming in at way over the asking price the day offers were due.
