What Our Buyers Have to Say ...

 

Bob & Barb Hagen

Pinellas Park, FL

Christopher was the best real estate professional we have worked with. We will definitely contact him when we return to Florida and look for a home to buy. In the meantime we are recommending him to our family and friends. We signed with Chris and immediately left town. He took care of everything, including professional photos, personal showings, working with other brokers and continually updating us with feedback. Most importantly, Chris is an honest, knowledgeable and hard working real estate professional.

 

Sandie Gilliland

Pinellas Park, FL

Christopher asked questions that helped us more clearly define the type of property we were interested in, then proceeded to locate some within our price range and show them to us; he was sensitive to our needs and availability. Christopher provided good information every step of the way so we were able to make a decision and close with a minimum of time and concerns – we were from another part of the United States and unfamiliar with regulations in Florida. He was accommodating and friendly and we felt confident in making use of his services.

 

Jim & Wendy Durling

Riverview, FL

Christopher was great and helped us buy our home. Wendy and I were looking at multiple properties in Pinellas County and he was available, hard working, and took time to show us properties with the features we were looking for. When we found a home on Zillow we thought was perfect (even though it was in Hillborough county) we told Chris about it and he facilitated the whole process for us. He drove from his office to the home several times. We were also impressed with the referrals Chris provided for the home inspection team, they were professional and thorough. Chris also worked very closely with our lender to smooth the mortgage process and saved me a lot of time. We had a wonderful home buying experience, and recommend his expertise without reservation.
