"Chris acted as our agent during the sale of our rental cottage in Laguna Beach, and we cannot think of enough good things to say about his participation. His professional knowledge, combined with his care and interest in our requirements, made Chris the best representative we could have asked for. Chris was endlessly patient and attentive during the process, and his energetic performance facilitated the satisfactory sale of our property in a timely manner. To make the process even easier Chris is a good person, and a pleasure to deal with."

"Chris did a terrific job helping us prep and sell our parents’ home. I live in Massachusetts, and my brother lives in L.A., so we really had to rely on Chris to manage things for us and he did a wonderful job. We were very happy with how the process went and enjoyed working with Chris. He really took the stress out of a challenging situation."
