Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in University City, San Diego, CA.
Primary point of contact: Aaron Simons
Chris Heller and his entire "team" were a pleasure to work with at every stage of my selling experience. I would highly recommend Chris and his "team" to those who wish to sell and enjoy working with highly trained professionals who work quickly and efficiently and communicate very frequently during all stages of the sales process.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Vista, CA.
Everyone I worked with at Chris Heller's office was wonderful and responsive to my needs and concerns. Tyler Snyder, in particular, was fantastic in keeping the escrow going when it seems to be falling out. He was calm, highly communicative with me at all times, honest with me with what was going on. I can't give him enough kudos!
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $650K in San Diego, CA.
Tyler Snyder was our main contact with Heller Realty along with Charlie (my apologies for not remembering your last name), and their professionalism and respect for us through the selling process which at times can be stressful was fantastic. They basically held our hands through the whole thing, which is exactly what we wanted, and I suspect what you might want too. They also sold our home where other agents frankly couldn't. So would I recommend them? Absolutely. They'll do a good job for you.
Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $200K in Oceanside, CA.
Chris sold my home in Encinitas in 2007. Chris helped me buy a foreclosure in Oceanside 2008. Chris helped my mother buy a short sale in Oceanside 2009.
Chris Heller is a superior real estate professional with years of excellence in service to his clients. He has built a wonderful team who work together with each client and address all their needs. I was very ill and had been told by doctors to downsize. I never could have done that successfully without Chris and his team. They worked with me and my family to determine what the property needed done to sell for top price. They helped me move (read organized and accomplished my move...(after 24 years). They hired professionals to complete work on the house and re-landscaped the pool area. They knew my financial limitations and took great pains to protect and improve my home for the best dollar return, overseeing the work done. They worked quickly, aware of the market's tenuous state.They helped me through the paperwork maze. They kept me and my family advised at all times.They prepped the house for viewing and had wonderful flyers and lists of improvements printed. Once on the market, Chris did a wonderful job of getting the word out and bringing realtors and clients to see it. It sold quickly in a bidding war. Chris' handling of that process and his negotiating experience was invaluable and he got me the top price possible. Chris and his associates helped me during a year's search to find exactly the smaller home I needed in a 55-plus community with good access to public transport that I may eventually need.They were very patient with my need to find just the right home and his associate patiently showed me one home after another. A repo, Chris used his extensive knowledge of foreclosures to help me price it well and negotiate concessions from the bank in Texas, even in the face of competition and the stated policy of the bank that it was an 'as is' property, lowering the already low price by $7,000. The community was so great that my family helped my mom buy a home in the same area. Of course we again used Chris and his team and this time when my mother fell for a "short sale", Chris patiently negotiated it through a longer, more complicated process with the banks and once again helped to arrive at the best price possible. Chris and his team have kept in touch with my mom and I. I could not recommend anyone more highly. I am very grateful to his help and to the sensitivity of both he and his team in shepherding me through a difficult time. My health is improving and I have a lot of gratitude to their kindness and respect for Chris' skills and leadership.
Top notch...need I say more! We listed our house and within THREE days had TWO offers (a bidding war!) and ended up getting more than our asking price. Chris and his staff did a great job negotiating the deal. And now, in just a couple of days we will close on our new house. Again, their expertise in negotiation shined through and we got a screaming deal! Buying a house is a huge financial decision and they were a great resource. Plus, they were so supportive and patient with my pregnant emotions. What else can you ask for?!
Chris Heller goes beyond the call of duty. He made sure that I made money the day I bought my home from him. He also made sure I made money when I sold my previous home. Chris is not just a typical real estate agent looking to make a sale, he's an amazing wealth of experience and information and can help anyone make the "right choices" when buying and selling real estate. In my opinion, when it comes to real estate, nobody knows the business better than Chris. He's a great coach and mentor, and most importantly, he's honest and always puts his customers best interest before his own. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. Chris truly is a blessing and I thank God for him!
Sold a Single Family home in 1989 in Solana Beach, CA.
Chris Heller was our agent when we sold our house in Solana Beach and acted as our agent for buying a new home in Oceanside. I have recommended Chris to friends who were delighted with his friendly personal service and how professional he was in listing and selling their homes. He is outstanding in all areas of the real estate field.
