Team reviews

Chip is a knowledgeable, no nonsense professional who was very easy to work with. We had contacted two realtors and we went with Chip because he was responsive and flexible in rescheduling our first appointment, and was on time and prepared with comps and market data. While we were initially disappointed with the suggested listing price, we put our trust in him and the process and eventually got an offer 15K over our asking price. We appreciate people who know their business, and Chip is one of those people. You will not be disappointed if you list your house with him - we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their house in CNY!

W and P, Thank you for letting me manage the sale of your house. It sure made Mother's Day an exciting day. Sold in 2 days and for over list price with multiple offers. Now it's closed and it was one of the smoothest transactions of the year. Best regards to you both, Chip

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 in Liverpool, NY.

Fast, efficient, reliable: I highly recommend Chip Hodgkins as a quality realtor in the Syracuse area. In selling my home, I had the utter misfortune of dealing with the most loathsome, vacillating, horrible buyers God saw fit to scrape off the bottom of someone's shoe. Home transactions are no doubt difficult, but Chip was a calming influence and a consummate professional who guided us through an otherwise frustrating experience. Trust me, if you need a house sold, even if the buyers make you want to reach into their chests and pull out their still-beating hearts, Chip and his team will get the job done.

K, That was one of the more difficult buyers, but not the most. It is important to keep our logical and business mindset rather than our emotional mindset when we are dealing with thousands of dollars. As we talked about; let's focus on the outcome not the behavior of the other side. Congrats on a great fast and high transaction. Chip

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Baldwinsville, NY.

From the first time I first spoke with Chip until the time the house sold, the process was painless and easier than I had ever experienced selling a home. I don't think there is any realtor better to take care or your selling needs. He's friendly & honest. Treated us like family. Our house sold so quick, we were shocked & pleased. I cannot say enough good about this man. He even contacted another realtor in the state we're moving to, to take care of our needs. Wish I could take him with us.

Chip Hodgkins is very professional and handled the transaction smoothly. He made the process very easy and took the time to make sure we understood all the terms. We received more value for our home than we expected.

Showed home in 2014 in Pompey Center, NY 13104.

I have known Chip for several years and have found him to be incredibly responsive, honest and easy to deal with. His ability to take vague questions and disseminate the requested information into a complete package is unmatched! He even thinks of things that potential buyers might not even realize they were thinking.

His knowledge of the greater Syracuse area is fantastic and his true love of the region shows in his attitude.

I would highly recommend Chip Hodgkins to anyone looking for a new home or looking to sell their current home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Baldwinsville, NY.

when I first met Chip he showed up to my house and was very professional looking. when taking to him he knew his market and the market for my house. Chip had a few suggestions on improvements that needed to be done, and had a crew ready to do work quickly. The house was sold in 22 days, and I am very happy with the service that Chip and his team has given me.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Lyndon, De Witt, NY 13066

We connected with Chip on a few properties but decided to stay in the home we already owned. Chip listened to our needs and provided us with information that helped us make our decision. He had our best interest in mind!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Meadowbrook, Syracuse, NY.

Chip was great! He was very straight forward with us. He did extensive research on our property, area, selling potential, and market. He advertised our property perfectly, with the best photographs, captions, open houses, and online presence. He was always available for meetings, he answered our questions honestly, and most important, sold our house within three months. We could not have had a better experience. We followed his advice, and we sold! If you are thinking of putting your property on the market, go see Chip!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Meadowbrook, Syracuse, NY.

We were very fortunate to both buy and sell a home with Chip. He has a very sound and informed understanding of the market, He is very candid and straightforward, but never discouraging. Most of all, he gets results: in a down market, we still managed to close on our new house and sell our old house within the same month.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Manlius, NY.

Our home was on the market for three years with a very good realtor during a difficult time to sell. After three years we felt we needed a change in agency and in approach. We interviewed four candidates, narrowed that to two and made a difficult choice between the two finalists. In the end, we felt that Chip Hodgkins represented the sharpest break from the past, a more corporate approach, so we selected him. For a number of reasons this proved to be very fruitful. The market had changed somewhat. That helped. We needed to get attention and Chip did that for us. He stuck with us and worked hard to get our property noticed. Three months after signing with Chip we had two offers come in within three days and the house sold. We are very grateful for the assistance he provided.
