My husband and I had had our house on the market for almost one year when we met Chris. He assessed our situation, was honest, fair and very direct regarding expectations. He presented marketing information to support his suggestions. He expressed how he would market our house. He did not disappoint us. He communicated well and was proactive in all situations. We had more showings after we listed with him and quickly had an offer on our house. We are happy to recommend him for your real estate needs. We wish him the best of luck and appreciate his guidance.Nancy Prince
