I've got a head for real estate!
What does that mean? It means I'm a full time real estate professional. And I'm not just an agent, or a salesperson - I'm a Real Estate Consultant. My agency, Keller Williams, holds me to the absolute highest professional standards and I work with my buyers and sellers getting them pre-qualified so both parties know exactly what they can afford.
I may not always tell you what you want to hear, but I'll tell you what you need to hear - and that may make the difference between buying and selling your home.
I service the mid-San Francisco Peninsula & San Mateo County, including: Foster City, Redwood Shores/Belmont, San Mateo, Hillsborough, Burlingame & San Carlos.
People are talking about Chris...
Chris Eckert is the best realtor you could ever work with. He goes way above and beyond what most realtors would do for their customers. His knowledge, experience, and professionalism can’t be beat and his advice on how to present a home for the market is sound. Chris was able to sell our home in two weeks during a time where the market was still slow to recover.
Chris took on the tasks to get the interior painted and the house staged and ready for showing. The entire time we were working remotely with him, we were 100% confident in his ability to follow through with his commitments. He is also a very good negotiator when it comes time to settle on the price with a buyer. He not only met our expectations, he surpassed them.
Chris is well known in the San Mateo area as an upstanding individual and respected by all...Everyone recognizes his integrity and sincere desire to help people whenever he can. Chris is top notch!!!!

I have no reservations recommending Chris who helped our family with selling my mother's townhouse on 9th/Laurel Avenues. After extensive remodeling we put the unit on the market in late May 2010. Thanks to Chris's recommendations and business savvy, the unit sold quickly. He strongly urged us to stage the unit before showing, and he was absolutely right! In today's market, the Internet is used as a sales tool and the staged unit showed well. Chris is very adept at using a variety of online tools to make the process easier. Since you are not in the area, Chris is an ideal realtor for your situation.
Throughout the process, we found Chris to be very professional and creative -- willing to think outside the box to find a good solution for all parties. At all times, I felt comfortable to express my concerns or ask questions, and he always responded immediately with complete information. I cannot say enough about his integrity and honesty. Above all, he does his best to make the experience as painless as possible. When the times comes to sell another property, I hope to work with Chris again.

To say that you went above and beyond with us Chris is to say too little. When Billy and I decided that it was time for us to move we didn’t even hesitate to contact you first. We knew that you were not only our neighbor, a local expert and an honest person ..even more importantly we knew that you had the type of commitment level and patience we needed in a partner. I say partner because that’s what you were. You talked us down from many ledges and you always maintained a professional and positive outlook regardless of the volatility of the market and the constant “drama” that the Alhorn’s provided you—between Billy and I and the 5 yr old twins—it was a handful—and you never let us believe anything but that we were your #1 priority—that’s class! You were there for every critical decision—you listened, delivered on a timely basis, and provided a service that we expected and needed. You were on call for us at any time and even on occasion provided us with tools to help us get our home ready for sale—true partner. It was a pleasure working with you and although it got rough at times we knew that in the end we were going to be alright because we had you on our side and knew you would represent us with all good intentions…Thanks, Thanks and Thanks again…and I know you will always be someone we can count on in the future as well !!! We will highly recommend you and your services to any of our friends, family and co-workers without as much as a blink…Good Luck to you always and we know you will stay in touch…

John and I thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to selling our house. You really went the extra mile and made us feel secure in all the twists and turns of our selling experience. We are glad to know you and of course will recommend you highly.

I’m still amazed at how quick and pain-free this whole process was! I expected it to be a real headache, but your expertise, experience and responsiveness to our needs made the whole process very efficient and straight-forward.

Your service is already a 10+… You far exceeded out expectation, and went above and beyond the general duties of a Realtor. We appreciate the fact that you were there every step of the way, guiding the process and making sure we were well-informed.
We met Chris Eckert while he was touring the Hayward Park neighborhood two years ago. We soon purchased a home in Oregon, and told Chris we planned to move in two or three years. Chris would periodically stop by and drop off materials on home sales in the area. When we finally decided it was time to sell in San Mateo, we contacted Chris. He was extremely knowledgeable on how to price and stage the house, as well as having a great network of people to provide services needed to get the place in perfect shape for sale. When we finally listed the house for sale, we had more than 100 real estate agents tour, and more than 20 scheduled buyer tours. Ten days after listing, we had several offers and accepted one that was above the listing price. Though a traumatic experience after living in our home for 28 years, Chris made everything go smoothly. We couldn't have done it without him!- Stew Winnick & Bonnie Rhodes
