My wife and I recently moved to the Tampa Bay area and the stress of moving was compounded by making a housing decision in an uncertain Florida real estate market. Chris Bilar was a stroke of great luck for us. Chris listened to our concerns; offered professional advice and guidance; helped us explore options - lease vs. purchase; provided the factual data and statistics in order for us to make an informed decision; which ultimately gave us the confidence to buy.
His vast knowledge of the local market, his understanding of our housing requirements and his ability to compile a strict list of homes for us to view saved us countless hours. Once we made a decision on a home, Chris' expert process knowledge guided us through what could have been a treacherous buying/closing process with ease.
Chris is a true professional. He took the time to get to know us as his clients, understand our needs/desires/requirements, and then used his expertise to guide us through the entire process while safeguarding our interests.He exceeded our expectations. Simply put - Chris is exceptional!
Chris did an excellent job in negotiating with the bank on the short sale of the house based on the local market and condition of the house. Once he got the price where it should be, he was able to sell and close on the house very quickly. This was due to his knowledge and expertise in this process for short sales. If there were any questions, Chris was available and responded back in a timely manner.
Selling my house with Chris Bilar was a really incredible experience. Chris was very actively involved in the entire process, really enabling me just to leave all the responsibility in his hands and he pretty much took care of everything for me. It was 4 months from the time Chris listed my house until the time it was sold, and being a short sale, I was expecting a long, drawn out process. Chris had not only one but two very interested buyers, and went to contract with a deserving family. I would absolutely and without hesitation recommend Chris to sell your home, or help you buy a home. He is very professional, personable, courteous, very responsive, RARELY did I ever get his voice mail, he sleeps with his cel phone! Chris took great care of me and I know he will do the same for you and your family.
I highly recommend Chris Bilar to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home. He is extremely knowledgeable, and the level of service he provides is unsurpassed. He is ethical, honest, extremely personable, and very accessible. He is an excellent negotiator. He is an expert when it comes to staying on top of current market conditions, which is imparative in order to accurately determine a listing price, His guidance on the amount to list my home for helped me get the best possible price within a reasonable timeframe. There were many obstacles that had to be overcome when selling my rental home, and Chris worked through the issues one by one. He even assisted me in finding a reputable contractor to make the necessary repairs at a very competitive price. I have also referred Chris to several friends and family members who have used him as a buyer's agent, and they were all extremely happy with his services. I would not hesitate to use Chris for my next real estate transaction.
I am hightly indebted to Chris for helping me not only sell the home but also in finding me a new home in the area. His knowledge of not only the industry but of the area where I live is very impressive and took much effort in my behalf. I truly thank a professional in every sense of th word.
