"I would want to be associated with somebody where the financial strength was unquestioned and where the name stood for integrity. What other quality would you want that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices does not have; and I don't think you could find one."

"A home is one of the most important assets that most people will ever buy. Homes are also where memories are made and you want to work with someone you can trust."

"I am a retired Realtor who worked along side of Chris in the same company for 10 years. I know him well. His financial background; up-to-date knowledge of market conditions: unique marketing strategy, negotiating strength and simply his love of the real estate business will mean a successful transaction for you. My husband and I sold a rental house which needed updating. Chris guided us through prioritizing the projects which would bring a return on investment. We took his advice and went under contract the first week with multiple offers and closed in 60 days. Sold over list price. We are very happy with his expertise and guidance."
