Bought a home in 2014 in Omaha, NE 68105.

Working with Chris was great! He was always very prepared, professional, and easy to get a hold of. I was an out-of-state buyer and only had one day to look at houses. When we drove by several promising places that weren't on my list, he was able to get me into all of them the same day. Before closing, he made sure all the inspections got done, and I didn't have to do a thing. Chris made the entire process vary easy.

Showed home in 2013 in Omaha, NE 68144.

My experience working with Chris has been a very positive one. It's obvious that he genuinely cares about the people he meets, listens carefully to their needs and goals, and works diligently to try and meet those. He was responsive to our many questions and requests. Chris is someone you can trust to represent you well.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Omaha, NE.

Chris was very professional and seemed to have a lot of knowledge in real estate. As first time home buyers he was very patient and made us feel comfortable about the whole home buying process. He was also very quick to reply back to us and worked well with our busy schedules.

Chris was very knowledgeable in real estate and showing us the house in detail. He presented himself very well. He also told us what was new in the house and showed us the entire house including the yard. Very nice gentleman!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Omaha, NE.

My fiance and I were looking to move out of the one bedroom apartment and start a life together with our first house. We were looking on Zillow and found a house we liked. Not knowing how the process worked, I saw I could request more information. Zillow gave me three Real Estate Professionals to pick from and I thought Chris looked the nicest so I went with him. I can say I'm glad we did. Even though we were quite easy clients, signed contract for new house six days after starting the search, it was nice to have someone young and knowledgeable like Chris to guide us through the process. Turns our there is a lot more to buying a house than finding one with nice pictures on Zillow. Chris made the process smooth and painless and always promptly answered any questions or concerns we had about the buying process. Trust me, go with Chris.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Omaha, NE.

I had been browsing Zillow for years, and suddenly found a place that seemed like exactly what I was looking for. It was a foreclosure, so I found Chris through a search of Zillow agents with foreclosure expertise. Chris returned my call immediately and took me through the property the next day. Over the next week, he tracked down additional information on the property (it was a foreclosure, fixer-upper condo, so things like covenants and and parking were not entirely clear at first).

When I decided to make an offer, Chris was really beneficial with his knowledge on the foreclosure process, as well as market value and renovation budgets. I was able to feel confident in my offer and have a comfortable price limit - one that would make the purchase a sound investment. He level-set my expectations on the foreclosure price negotiation process (often it takes months before a bank will come down). However, with his help over 2 days of negotiations, I got a fantastic price on the place. He even negotiated an electrical fix on top of that!

All in all, I was very happy with Chris. I had a lot of questions for him throughout the process (probably an annoying amount!), and he was always willing to listen and answer them thoroughly. He was able to be completely honest on how things work, and what things are worth - something that is so invaluable when making such a huge decision like a house purchase. He knows the midtown/downtown area well.

I would like to say Chris was very helpful and friendly while we looked for a home upgrade recently. His advice regarding strengths of certain houses sure made sense. He really did his "homework!" We feel very comfortable with Chris and his matter of fact no-pressure approach. We are poised to make more money on the sale of our present house with his help than if we sold it "by owner." That really sealed it.
