His professional knowledge, combined with his care and interest in our requirements, made Chris the best representative we could have asked for.

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."
- Stephanie
