“Lora and I had a successful home purchase experience because of a number of factors that Chris brought to the table. First, professionalism. His knowledge, experience, customer centric style, and patience in understanding our needs and asking the questions that allowed both of us to talk through the factors that determined the right purchase for us was very important. Chris took time to let us find our way yet didn’t let us lose our way in the process! Second, expertise and willingness to diagnose properties.
Part of the reason that we liked working with Chris was that he was recommended to us by a colleague of mine who said that Chris would look for all the details, point out the flaws in a property, and do things that other realtors do not necessarily do when going through this process. This was exactly what Chris did and exactly what we needed. Finally, the services that Chris provided were extremely beneficial in terms of website capabilities, analysis, negotiation, and networking. Lora used the website a ton and found out so much about communities and properties that she could probably be labeled a poweruser during the period where we were in heavy search mode.
However, the comprehensive service that kicked in once we selected a property really surprised us. This was different than what we had in our previous purchase. We felt supported and confident in our plans because of the market value analysis that Chris provided, the grounded realistic method he used to frame how negotiations can work and how Chris used the same value analysis to justify the offer to the selling realtor, and the network of other professionals that Chris recommended who turned out to be highly customer oriented, competitive in their fees, and great at their part of the process. This included the title company and our inspectors as well as the lenders who Chris recommended. Even though we did not end up choosing them, the lenders we shopped with were very customer oriented, competitive, and professional. This allowed Lora and I to have a successful and happy transition to our new home here. Thanks, Chris!”
