Ratings & Reviews

Chris was nothing short of fantastic. I will recommend him to anyone buying/selling a home. We put our house on the market and got 9 offers in the first weekend ... most were WAY above our asking price! The first buyers backed out unexpectedly but Chris skillfully negotiated with the second buyers and we were almost immediately back under contract. Everything was going along smoothly but then our house flooded just a couple of days before closing. It had never happened before but we thought for sure the buyers would back out since we had to tear out a floor and had water seeping in from the foundation. We were devastated. Chris, however, artfully negotiated the deal and we sold our house as scheduled on the day of closing! We were so thankful we picked Chris... we knew if we'd had any other realtor that the deal would have probably fell through. We closed on another house just a couple of weeks after our house sale and the whole process went so smoothly. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about mountain homes and our mountain communities, is very responsive to calls/texts/emails, was very patient with all of our questions and had lots of great advice for us (for both selling our old home and buying our new one). If we ever sell/buy a house again, I would only want Chris as our agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Evergreen, CO.

We are a bit delayed in posting this review, but it is never too late to say, "Thank you, Chris" for helping make our dream of owning and living in the mountains a reality. We had known for several years that we would locate in CO for retirement but did not get serious about it until the summer of 2014. On a hunch we contacted Chris Vinci because of his professional bio and exposure on Zillow's website. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Chris helped us extensively for 3-4 days during the summer, driving us all over the area to look at regions, neighborhoods and homes. Even to the extent that we chose some places that he could have just said, "I don't think this is right for you..." he drove us there anyway and let us decide for ourselves. When we did not find the exact home during that intense window of time, we returned home. Chris kept us informed and up to date on everything that came on the market that might interest us. When our dream home did become available, he phoned us before it even went on the market and described the home that we had been looking for. We flew out over the weekend, made an offer, along with two other parties at the same time!! Talk about stressful!! But Chris saw it through for us and we were at once, proud owners of a beautiful mountain home. Several logistical scenarios happened before we were able to sell our other home in Virginia and move to Colorado. Chris even took care of finding a superb caretaker to watch our home for us through the winter and purchased a home warranty for us on his own. We highly recommend Chris Vinci as a knowledgeable expert on mountain homes throughout the Evergreen area and beyond. He is a busy man, but he always had time for even the most seemingly insignificant questions and queries from us. As we excitedly make this house our home in this beautiful area, we are lucky to have been able to benefit from the expertise of Chris Vinci as a professional, but are truly pleased to call him our friend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Conifer, CO.

Chris did a terrific job finding me a home. In this very competitive environment I was coming up against numerous buyers at each potential home. I knew it was going to be a major challenge to find something I could afford without stiff competition. Over one weekend I told Chris I needed to find a home basically by next Sunday. He picked up the phone and started calling people who had their homes on the market during the previous season but who had not yet put their homes back on the market for the upcoming spring season. We got lucky and found someone with a great house in the mountains that fit my needs and the seller agreed to go under contract within a week. Creativity is critical in this market, and it is what enabled me to find this home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Evergreen, CO.

My wife and I needed to sell our Evergreen home while living 1,000 mile away in SoCal. We selected Chris based on Zillow reviews. Best decision we could have made, Chris did a Great Job. He made recommendations on repairs and touch ups that would help sell the home and then helped manage the process while I was out of state. I only met Chris one time at the start of the process but knew that we would be in good hands. Once the house was ready to sell, it was 22 days from listing to closing. Chris was in contact with us every step of the way forwarding documents and keeping us informed. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Mountain west of Denver you could not be in better hands than with Chris!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Black Hawk, CO.

Best Real Estate professional I have ever worked with hands down. Cannot possibly say enough good things about working with Chris. It's really rare that a real estate agent has the buyer's interest at heart as opposed to trying to sell the buyer on most expensive house and get the biggest commission.

Bought a home in 2015 in El Rancho, Evergreen, CO 80439.

Chris assisted my wife and I in the process of purchasing our first home. As first time home buyers, we did not know exactly what to expect with this process. Chris guided us through the entire process start to finish explaining every step of the way. He was able to find us a great house and got us an amazing price on it. Chris really went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with the purchase and found the right house - he treated us more like friends he was looking out for than clients. We were extremely happy with everything Chris brought to the table, and would use him again in a heartbeat.

Karen and I listed our home with Chris in mid-March and, in a word, Chris was (is) fantastic. 37 days later, we were at closing and the house was sold. Chris guided us through every step of the way, provided resources we needed to complete inspection items, worked with the appraiser, etc., Truly, I cannot recommend Chris highly enough. If I called him with a question, he either answered his phone, or called back within minutes. If I texted him, he responded immediately. More subjectively, Chris provided a positive attitude throughout the process. Moving is stressful and it's easy to obsess over the details. His can do outlook, and we'll get it handled demeanor were a life saver. Truly, work with Chris. You will be glad you did. Chris: Karen and I thank you!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Evergreen, CO.

It began with a dream and ended with reality, thanks to Chris Vinci. After spending the month of October in the Vail area, my husband and I decided Evergreen was the place to have our second home. Chris' name kept coming up in our online real estate searches and we decided to give him a call. What a great guy to take us around for hours at a time, day after day, searching for just the right property! His authentic personality and in depth knowledge about the area was so refreshing. After finding the right house, Chris was professional all the way through the buying process. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property, and will definitely use his services again. Thank you Chris, for all you did for us!

Sold a home in 2014 in El Rancho, Evergreen, CO 80439.

I selected da Vinci Realty to sell our home in Evergreen based greatly on prior reviews here on Zillow. Chris and his associate Jim Wales did not disappoint. Their knowledge of the Evergreen market and the pricing and marketing strategy they brought to our listing had our home under contract in 4 days! Chris and Jim were always immediately in touch via phone, text or email and their relationships with other local professionals such as inspectors, appraisers and photographers made selling our home a great experience. I highly recommend!
