Hello. My name is Chris Barnes, and I'm a licensed New Jersey Realtor. Welcome to my website. If you're here your most likely considering buying or selling a home so allow me to introduce myself and my services. I attended Rutgers University School of Business and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Market Research. My formal education coupled with experience in investing, property management, and the trades have given me the necessary skills to approach the real estate market not as a speculator, but as a specialist. I take pride in my work and base my business on providing helpful information, not pressure and sales pitches. If you're interested in selling your home, purchasing a new one, renting, refinancing, investing, property management...If you're interested in getting it done right, give me a call at (732)718-8238 or email me at cbarnes@briandavidrealtors.com

Just looking?: Interested in what your home is worth, but not ready to sit down and sign a contract? Planning to buy a home, but not until you have a real good look around? No problem. I'm in this for the long-term and against pressure-selling. There are easy, efficient ways I can keep you informed of the market, such as automatic email listings, that let you learn the market on your own time, and at your convenience. When the time is right just give me a call and we can take it from there.References available: Like most professionals for hire I'm happy to provide references of previous satisfied clients.

Resources available: If you need any services related to your home chances are I know a great person for the job. Attorneys, Home Inspectors, Mortgage Brokers, Financial Planners, Contractors, Accountants, etc. I also offer agent screening for clients that need to buy or sell outside my market area.

Bought a home in 2014.

Chris helped me find a fixer-upper in Scotch Plains. They are hard to come by and fly off the market but Chris kept a real close eye on the market for me and had me in my future home the day it came on the market. We won out a bidding war, I stepped up on the price, but I also think Chris’s handling of the offer presentation like a pro got our foot in the door. He assured the listing agent and seller that we had a very professional team that would close the deal for various reasons and I think selling that peace of mind to the seller made our offer stand out. During the transaction, there were many hurdles that came up that Chris warned me about, it being a bank owned property, and he successfully navigated and negotiated through them and closed the transaction.

Besides being a deal hound, Chris is also a licensed NJ builder so he was a great source of information regarding the home inspection and material and labor costs. Even post-closing he helped me a lot with my renovation plans and put me in touch with quality tradesmen with good prices.  When I decide to sell he will be my first call. Highly recommend!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $400K in New Brunswick, NJ.

Chris helped me find and close on a two-family in the Rutgers section of New Brunswick. His extensive knowledge of the area, market trends, property management and construction experience was invaluable to me. I was impressed with his ability to spot potential problems (both physically in the house and also hurdles to closing) and address them quickly and effectively. With Chris I can see he puts his client's interests ahead of his own. There were even a few properties I liked and might have moved on, however, Chris talked me out of them and disclosed valid reasons why they were not sound investments. I highly recommend Chris, a professional, seasoned real estate agent you can trust.  More Less

Bought a home in 2010.

MR. BARNES WAS MY AGENT FOR THE PURCHASE OF MY HOME IN A LOCAL NEW JERSEY TOWN THAT I HAD NEVER THOUGHT I COULD FIND WHAT I WANTED, BUT EXACTLY WHERE I WAS HOPING FOR. CHRISTOPHER BARNES SHOWED ME EASILY OVER 63 HOMES EVERY ONE OF WHICH HE WENT THROUGH WITH WHAT SEEMS LIKE A FINE TOOTHED COMB TO FIND WHAT I WANTED. I CANT EVEN THINK OF ONE SHOWING THAT DIDNT MAKE ME THINK THAT WAS THE HOME I WAS GOING TO PURCHASE. I HAVE AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT SCHEDULE TO WORK AROUND BUT HE FOUND A WAY AND WE LOOKED AT HOMES AT ALMOST EVERY HOUR OF THE DAY INCLUDING NIGHT TIME. NOT ONCE DID HE MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO "SELL" ME A HOUSE HE WAS VERY RESPECTFUL OF MY MONETARY SITUATION AND EVEN TALKED ME OUT OF A FEW BECAUSE OF PROBLEMS HE SAW THAT I DID NOT. I COULD SAY ALOT MORE ABOUT THIS INDIVIDUAL BUT THIS SHOULD BE ALL YOU NEED TO MAKE A DECISION AND FEEL LIKE IT'S YOUR BROTHER TRYING TO FIND YOU A HOME.  More Less
