Team reviews

My husband and I were interested in finding property in the Vancouver, Washington area for a future move. We are from Colorado. I went on line to find a realtor as I was not familiar with anybody from that area. I found Chris Galyon's name and read the comments from former clients. I was comfortable with what I read and shared the information with my husband. We decided to give Chris the opportunity to try and help us. I sent him an e-mail on a Sunday expecting to hear from him during the upcoming week. To my surprise, I heard from him that same day. We then spoke on the phone and set up a date to meet when we would be in Washington. We spent the next several visits searching for homes and/or property in the Vancouver area. Chris was very thorough in his search for just the right property. He was patient with us as we wanted to do our due diligence when searching for the location that was right for us. He offered his opinion and expertise, but he didn't mind if we strayed from what he had suggested. We never felt rushed to make a decision to buy property or to just settle so that we could all move on. He respected our timeline and our commitment to finding the right property for us. I would definitely recommend him to others seeking property in the Vancouver and surrounding Washington area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Vancouver, WA.

Chris helped us buy our new home in February 2015. He was patient with us as he helped us figured out exactly what we wanted. The best part is that what we ended up with was different that what I thought it would be - but in the best way. We were able to get a brand new home, with a huge backyard (my deal breaker) for the same price as it would have cost us to buy an older home that would have resulted in lots of updating and maintenance on our end. Chris had a clear understanding of the market, and advocated for us throughout the purchase of our home. I HIGHLY recommend him to all of our friends buying or selling.

Bought a home in 2014 in North Image, Vancouver, WA 98682.

I recently purchased a brand new home with the help and expertise of Chris Galyon and his team. At no point in the process did I feel rushed or pressured into buying or doing anything that I wasn't comfortable with. All of his information was up to date and pertinent to every home we viewed. In the end his tireless efforts and incredible patience made buying not just my first home but a brand new home a relaxed and fun experience. Furthermore Chris and his team are as honest and trustworthy as you can find. And they will continue to be my first and last choice for any and all real estate ventures.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Washougal, WA.

If you are looking for the best realtor available in the area, Chris is that realtor. I bought a house that was in need of some repairs (older home that need crawlspace work and a new electrical box). When the sellers contractor did a super crappy job, Chris stepped in and MADE sure that everything was taken care of and corrected. He kept me updated on what was going on through the entire process. He was always available to answer my questions. I've worked with other realtors in the past and they didn't even compare to the outstanding service Chris provides and his assistant Alisha. I honestly can not say enough good things about Chris. I will happily refer him to anyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Vancouver, WA.

Chris helped us buy our new home and was really helpful with his knowledge of the area. On top of that he was able to sell our current home in under a week! Highly recommend! Thanks so much Chris!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Camas, WA.

Chris was super dedicated to helping us find our home in WA. We didn't know the area coming from TX and he was knowledgable and honest. He steered us in the right direction and kept in mind our budget. We were house hunting nearly everyday for months (we were picky!) during a very hot market and probably wouldn't have scored our great house without his persistence. Chris went above and beyond getting us in first to look at a house within hours of the listing. He had our offer in to the sellers the same evening and it was accepted. He is quick, smart, real, technology savvy and most importantly, committed to his clients.

Bought a home in 2014 in Knapp, Ridgefield, WA 98642.

Chris Galyon is truly a PREMIER AGENT in every sense of the concept! Chris made himself very available as my husband and I searched for a new home. Chris was completely honest as he cited pros and cons as we toured a variety of homes and I trusted his judgment 100%! He was tireless and most patient as we bounced from house to house. It was most apparent to us that Chris' priority is that his clients find a home that is a "good fit" and will be happy with their new home. When we finally did find THE home, Chris was prompt in providing expert advice in helping us to negotiate a fair price. There were times when he would be on the phone with us way past business hours, knowing how anxious we were to seal the deal. My husband and I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is interested in working with a top-notch real estate agent. You can expect the best when Chris is at your service!

Chris demonstrated a knowledge of the process, patience, and advocacy for me when selling my house. He was always responsive to phone calls and emails. He provided me with the assurance that through his experience, he knew exactly how the process should go and prepared me for each step. If you need to buy or sell a house, call Chris!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Evergreen Highlands, Vancouver, WA.

The first time I called Chris to show me a house, he was there within 20 minutes and I was walking through the house. I never felt pressured . I was going back and forth on the purchase of my house , he didn't try to talk me into it and just gave me facts. He was very patient and understanding. I have already given his details to all of my friends looking to buy houses because I had such a great experience with him.

Bought a home in 2014 in Fishers Landing East, Camas, WA 98607.

Chris represented me on a fairly large ($400K) purchase that I made on a home I found on Zillow. Understand, when I bought the house, I had never actually seen it.

Chris took the time to understand my situation, and structured the entire deal to meet my needs. For example, I had the cash on hand for a 20% down payment, but I didn't want to deplete my savings. On the other hand, I had no desire to pay PMI. Chris structured the deal so that the seller, rather than paying for some needed repairs to the home, brought cash to closing that paid off my PMI, allowing me to go with 10% down. Now, I have more cash available, no PMI, and a few repairs that I'm capable of making myself. This was brilliant on Chris' part.

I would recommend Chris to anyone, but especially for a deal that is a little complicated, you couldn't do better.
