Chris helped me to sell my place and to buy another one that I loved even more! Chris is smart, knowledgeable, easy to talk with, insightful, and customer-focused. I really felt, through the whole selling and buying process, that he wanted what was best for me. He never pressured me to make any decision and always listened and discussed each step in the process. Prior to my closing, he identified a line item that I should question with the bank; it ended up giving me more money and him less money! I have already referred good friends to Chris and will continue to refer others to him.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.

I cannot recommend Chris highly enough. With his help and great negotiation skills, we got a great condo in our price range, even though there were 11 bids! Then, he was so responsive as he helped us through the closing process! He really went out of his way for us. He was there any time we needed him with questions and did all kinds of little extra things for us that turned out to be so valuable. He also knows the market and has a ton of great recommendations and advice. Go with Chris ; he's great!

Bought a home in 2014 in South Salem, MA 01970.

Working with Chris was an absolute pleasure. He had the knowledge and the expertise needed to get us into a fantastic condo, giving us advice and working on our behalf every step of the way. We are absolutely going to be referring everyone we know to Chris directly, and we also hope to work with him again in the future, if we have the opportunity.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Wakefield, MA.

My husband and I worked with Chris in Winter/Spring 2014 and I would highly recommend him to others.

He did a great job explaining the process and asked a lot of questions in our first meeting to get a really good idea of what we wanted. And he did not show us properties that did not meet our criteria, which is great. No one wants to waste their time looking at properties that do not fit what you're looking for. We looked at a LOT of properties, and I felt like we were taking a long time and being really picky, but Chris never pressured us to make an offer on something that we weren't sure about and he always responded to our calls or texts immediately. I also felt like Chris did a great job negotiating and dealing with the other party during the offer process.

Overall, I would say he is very knowledgeable, easy-going, attentive and I would easily work with him again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in West Roxbury, Boston, MA.

Chris is GREAT! It is nice to feel like a realtor is actually working for me instead of just waiting to collect a commission. Chris is knowledgeable about the area and either knew the answers to my every question or knew the right person to call to get the answers immediately. He has connections everywhere and is willing to help before, during, and after the buying process. I would (and already have) recommend him to friends and family and will work with him again in the future to buy or sell.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Arlington, MA.

Chris was great - my wife and I went to him after finding a house that we were looking to buy. He helped us make an informed offer and after a little negotiating we were able to buy our home for under the asking price. More valuable to us, though, was that he was then able to sell our existing home within 6 days of listing, for over asking! He walked us through our home and made suggestions on minor redecorating changes in order to show our home in the best possible manner. Chris responsiveness was great and his knowledge about what current buyers are looking for was hugely valuable.

Sold a home in 2014.

I had a condo in an association that was mostly rental units and required special financing for the buyer. Chris was very proactive and lined up a lender who could help out my buyer. He helped me get top dollar too by bringing in an excellent stager and photographer and I managed to get my condo under agreement just a few days after listing. He also quite helpful withy purchase of a single family which literally closed the same day as my sale. I almost waived my right to an inspection but Chris convinced me to do one and recommended a great inspector who found a few issues that Chris was able to use to negotiate a much lower price. With Chris, I feel like I didn't only get a realtor but a whole team of real estate professionals.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Watertown, MA.

As first time home buyers in the competitive Boston area Real Estate market, my fiancé and I were lucky to have Chris working as our buyer’s agent. Though we started the home buying process with a (healthy) level of caution towards real estate agents, Chris quickly earned our trust. He did his best to ensure that we had all the information we needed to make informed decisions, while being very careful not to push any opinions onto us (unless we specifically asked for them).

With Chris, we never felt like we were being pushed through the buying process. In fact, on multiple occasions, it was he who kept us from making hasty decisions by pointing out drawbacks on properties that we hadn’t noticed or considered. It was valuable to have him visit homes with us: with a knack for home improvement, he knows what to look for and educated us on how to look and judge value for ourselves. Though he is the next best thing to a professional home inspector, he always advocates that his buyers play it safe and get third-party home inspections, despite the growing trend to waive them in this competitive market.

Chris maintains a large network of contacts that can be useful to his clients during and after the home buying process, including lenders, lawyers, and various home improvement professionals, some of which are former clients. Again, it’s worth emphasizing that his contacts are never pushed on you as a client, but we were very pleased with the contacts of his that we ended up using.

Chris is very genuine and personable, and he’s in Real Estate for the long haul. He wants his clients to be happy enough with the buying process that they recommend him for years to come, and we are happy to do so.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.

My husband and I were first time homebuyers, and can't recommend Chris highly enough. He explained the entire process of home-buying upfront (and walked us through the accompanying forms), so that we knew exactly what information and timelines to expect. When we were ready to make an offer on a place, Chris handled the negotiations with the selling agent and got us a better deal than we'd expected. He was always realistic with us about our options throughout the process, and never applied any pressure. He has an extensive network of professionals in the Boston area which you can tap into from knowing Chris – lawyers, inspectors, contractors, whatever you need. But the best part about Chris was how engaged and responsive he was. He typically responds to emails and texts within the hour. He shows up to every appointment - even crawling around with the inspector to ask questions which he can use later to negotiate your home price lower. He makes you feel like you are his only and most important client.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Reading, MA.

My fiancé and I were first time buyers and recently bought a single family house in Northwest of Boston! Chris was our agent!... Before signing up with a realtor, we wanted to have a better understanding of the market and did our research on local realtors. We had received a reference for Chris through a friend of a friend. We met with Chris in his office to discuss our situation and talk about our options. Chris was very informative of the process and was truly was interested in our goals. Chris is very down to earth and personable. We felt very comfortable with Chris's experience and knowledge of the market, process and industry. During the whole process, Chris was extremely flexible and accessible. Halfway through the process, our goals and interests had shifted to another market; Chris was responsive and adapted our needs. Chris was always willing to give his honest opinion and looking out for our best interests. If there is one thing that you should know about buying a house is that searching is only half the battle. Once we found our house there was still a lot more work to be done. This was unfamiliar territory us and very stressful, but Chris really excelled in the process of actually purchasing the house. Chris was great at negotiating with the seller's and making sure we were getting good value in this market. Chris work well in coordinating all of the paper work with our mortgage company, the attorneys and the sellers. Chris is very passionate about his job and the profession. We were very happy with the way things turned out and would highly recommend Chris as a realtor.
