Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Odessa, FL.
Chris is a wonderful realtor! He helped us sell our previous home and purchase our current home. He always made himself available to show us property, answer all of our questions, etc. He was also always very honest with us through the entire buying and selling process. If we ever move again, we will definitely use Chris as our realtor!

Chris is the man to go to for selling lakefront property. His knowledge of Hillsborough County lakes is impressive. He is constantly seeking information that will help him better market your home and find the right buyer. He is responsive to your requests and will follow through with them too!

Don't be afraid to push the envelope when negotiating a sale... Chris will be there with you all the way...

Honest, hard working and knowledgeable... traits everyone should demand of their realtor, and Chris meets all three.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2013.
We had a wonderful experience working with Christopher Johnson. We were working on selling our property for long time with no results and changed over to Chris. He was very responsive in answering questions and helped with properly pricing our property. He always kept us informed and up to date on all activity and finally got the offer we were looking for. We would highly recommend working with Christopher to any of our friends and colleagues. It was truly a wonderful experience.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Odessa, FL.
Do not buy or sell a lakefront property without contacting Chris Johnson! I called multiple realtors when relocating to the Tampa area and it quickly became apparent that Chris is the foremost expert when it comes to waterfront homes in the Tampa/Odessa. I have since completed three home purchases with Chris as my agent and wouldn't think of calling anyone else. Chris has a wealth of knowledge when it comes buying/selling in the area and is a masterful negotiator. He closed a deal that I never thought would happen and was even able to get a short sale home that I was purchasing approved by the homeowner and two lenders in under 6 weeks! For anyone that has attempted to purchase a short sale you know this process typically takes 4-6 months! I had little to no knowledge of the area and Chris took the time to make sure I really understood the different lakes and neighborhoods before making a purchase. If you are thinking of buying or selling in the Tampa/Odessa area I would definitely recommend calling Chris.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Odessa, FL.
We bought our lake home in Odessa through Chris, and then due to a very unexpected transfer with my work to Austin Texas, Chris sold our home one year later.

In searching for a lake home in Odessa, Chris simply was more connected and knew more than anyone else. My wife and I are both very tech savvy, and used Zillow, and other real estate sites heavily to screen and find homes. But Chris knew about the homes that were not listed yet, such as people "thinking" about selling, or the details about the sellers of homes that have on and off the market. He told us the details and background of the transactions that were outliers in value, either high or low, that gave us needed perspective that we could not get through technology. And Chis loves the water. He lives on a lake, loves to wake board. He truly understands the pro's and con's of each lake, and why we wanted to live on a lake. He gets it.

The home we bought though Chris, he knew about before it was listed. It was almost impossible to find a home with the specific schools we wanted to be in, on a lake, and in our price range. But Chris was tied into homes coming onto the market, and we were able to meet ALL of our criteria. We NEVER would have found this through technology alone.

When we unexpectedly needed to sell our lake home a year later, we talked to Chris before we had talked to anyone else about the possible move. We were able to sell our home in the time frame and price range that we had mapped out together.

Through both processes, Chris was very responsive, answering emails and phone calls at all hours of the day and night. And made both closings easy through the use of technology, which was vital with our VERY busy lifestyle with 6 children and running a fast growing business.

I write very few reviews for anything in my life, but would highly recommend Chris Johnson.

Chris is very friendly, patient, knowledgable and was instrumental in finding a house we love. He showed us many homes until we found what we wanted. I highly recommend using Chris as your realtor.

Sold a home in 2013.
We would highly recommend Chris Johnson for anyone buying or selling a home! He was very knowledgeable, responsive & thoughtful to all our needs during the sale of our home and the purchase of another. He sent us all possibilities while looking for a new home & responded quickly when we showed interest in some.

He is also very personable, and was extremely kind to us in every way.

Sold a home in 2013.
I think that Chris Johnson did an excellent job of marketing my property. I had tried on my own "for sale by owner" with little response much less success. After turning my home over to Chris, it sold within 12-14 days. He stayed in constant contact with me throughout all the sales process and left nothing to chance making sure I understood each step of the process. He is very proficient in sales of waterfront properties and realizes their unique and intrinsic value as compared to other properties. My association with Chris was amiable and pleasant and should I ever decide to re-invest in Florida real estate, there is no question as to who I will contact as my realtor of choice

Chris Johnson just helped us sell our lakefront home on Lake Pretty in Odessa, Florida in less than two (2) months. If there is anyone in Odessa that knows lakefront property – it is Chris Johnson. Chris knows the ins-and-outs of all the various lakes in Odessa, and constantly stays updated on the latest listings, sales, foreclosures, short-sales, and local real estate trends. His knowledge of the Odessa area, coupled with his 24/7 work ethic, is a winning combination that cannot be beat by any other realtor in the area. If you trust Chris to properly price, list, and sell your home, I promise you will not be disappointed with the result. Chris is not only an excellent realtor, but more importantly, he is an extremely trustworthy and honest person in all aspects of his life.

For all of the reasons listed above, and many more which will not fit in this short review, my wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Chris Johnson to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in and around Odessa.
