After a year of search and frustration, we finally landed a home we liked. Chris kept his cool and always had a positive outlook that a home that we were looking for would eventually come to the market. Chris is the kind of agent prospecting clients should have. He never pushes and always gives unbiased advice. Selling is secondary his commitment is the happiness of his client. Thanks Chris you rock!! Tewolde, Selam and Delila

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Walnut Creek, CA.

I would like to thank Chris Ettell for his help,expertise and professionalism. Chris made the realty portion of my relocation painless. He found my family a great home in a great neighborhood for a fair price. Relocating from Seattle to Walnut Creek had many challenges. Chris made it easier by finding the home, executing all necessary paperwork correctly the first time and added a personal touch that made us comfortable. I definitely use Chris for our upcoming purchase and highly recommend him to others. His integrity is unparalleled and greatly appreciated.

Bought a home in 2014 in Pacheco, Martinez, CA 94553.

A little different in buying unimproved land but Chris was great to work with and we were very satisfied throughout. Chris was responsive and quick to get answers to questions when the answer was not immediately known.

My wife and I recommend him and would use him in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.725M in Alamo, CA.

Chris worked with our family over the course of a full year from mid-2013 through Aug 2014. Because we were relocating from the East Coast into a very different Bay Area housing market, Chris spent a lot of his time helping us to get to know the area, different towns and even neighborhoods within towns. He also helped helped us understand schools, commute times, and future resale implications of our housing choices.

Because we could not immediately find a house to purchase, Chris quickly shifted his efforts last fall to finding a rental property and helped us navigate that transaction, mostly while we were back in Boston. We moved to Alamo in January.

Then this spring he kicked his search efforts into overdrive and helped with a continual search for 5 or 6 months until our purchase in Aug 2014. Chris handled all the paperwork and coordination, provided "value" advice relative to asking / offer price on 4 or 5 target properties - a few of which we made offers on and did not get - but in no way related to Chris's efforts. It's hard to beat an all cash offer, unless you can match it and we could not!

Chris truly cares about his clients, takes the time to get to know them (we can say he has really become our first true friend out there), and really helps navigate the crazy waters of the current market. We would highly recommend Chris for others looking to buy homes on the Walnut Creek / Alamo and the surrounding areas.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Benicia, CA.

Chris did a great job selling our home. With the Economy being so bad I didn't think we would be able to sell, but he helped us through it and we came out on top. We received wonderful costumer service and he was very flexible around our crazy schedules. When we were first starting out Chris gave us many tips on how to stage our home properly and said if we needed any help he was just a phone call away....Thanks again Chris for everything.

The Dunn, Burril Family

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Martinez, CA.

Chris did a great job getting me a good deal in a tough market. He put in the extra time. When we were concerned about a gas leak, he waited at the house for four hours for the inspector to come out. Nice guy. Housewarming gifts of wine and honey from his own backyard.

Chris was very dedicated to helping my sister and I sell our family home. He was very caring. Chris was good at knowing what we should do to help sell the house. He was easy to work with and he was always very professional.

Thank you for the nice review Gary ! Working together to find the right strategy when listing the home was most important and seeing it thru to the end is very satisfying ! Thank you for the opportunity....our timing and final result, given the circumstances, could not have been better !

Bought a Single Family home in 1993 for approximately $400K in Walnut Creek, CA.

Chris has assisted me on numerous Real Estate and non RE projects. His knowledge and willingness to accommodate my specific needs are unmatched. This is the reason he has grown from a Real Estate Agent with my family to a multi tasked counselor in my many financial and professional needs. I highly recommend this very personable man to enter your life.
