"Chris Tinnell is the consummate knowledgeable and friendly realtor. He listed our house after coaching us on all the dtaiks of what would happen and when in the timeline of the sale. He was extremely on point the beginning pre-listing preparation to staging the home, negotiating the offers, helping coach and find resources for repairs and coached us as needed through closing and after the sale. I would recommend Chris Tinnell highly and without reservation because of his above and beyond service and performance for maximizing our botoomline and teaching us the things we needed to know at the time we needed to know them. Awesome Realtor for us." - Darby

"Wow! We just purchased our third house with Chris Tinnell and could not be happier. His professionalism and knowledge is unmatched but I think his most impressive trait is his easy going nature. Believe me my wife Jennifer and I can be all over the place when it comes to what we want, but Chris just hangs in there and continues to listen and work. He is available at the drop of a hat and always comes off as extremely organized and unflappable. Chris also one of our houses with us and he personally help with some of the items that we needed to repair before offering the home for sale. That home was the home that our children basically grew up in, which he had us 16 years before. It was a very emotional sell for all of us but Chris treated it as it was his family home and made it so easy for us to make the transition. Now he continues to help our family once again with our most recent purchase, investment property for the two of us and a safe comfortable place for one of our daughters to live."

"Chris Tinnell was our agent, both for buying a home in Round Rock and selling our condominium in Cedar Park. The transactions were made in a matter of days. Chris is a consummate professional. He is responsive, answering calls, getting back to you promptly and is an excellent communicator. This was very important for us since our negotiations were done while we were out of state. Chris guided us through the process of purchasing and selling property in Texas as well as helping us with everything finding service providers to directing us to County Offices for tax purposes. We highly recommend Chris Tinnell. He gets the job done." - Belodoff

"Chris has represented us in two sales and two purchases. As a business owner myself, I deal with too many companies who spend a lot of time getting your business, but fail to live up to their responsibilities in the end. Chris is the opposite of that. His reputation for helping his clients at both ends of the transaction speaks for itself. He honors his word, takes care of business, returns calls, and gets the job done - time and again. A real professional. "

"Thank you so much Chris Tinnell. I am very impressed with your professionalism as well as your vast knowledge as a Realtor! Chris also went above and beyond during the sale...and even followed up weeks later to make sure everything was going good. Highly recommend Chris Tinnell! "

"I have had three previous experiences buying ,selling, and investing in property in the Austin area before I met Chris Tinnell. I can definitely say Chris goes above and beyond any realtor I have seen or even expect to do. He is patient, always available for questions ,and very knowledgeable in all the important aspects of real estate including construction, build quality, and home valuation. What makes him stand out is his personal touch, he is never hesitant to offer help and he will guide you through the whole process and make as many trips to houses your are interested . He has all the right tools and expertise that will get your house maximum online exposure for selling.In addition, Chris gets his peer realtors to provide additional inputs as well. Chris prides himself as a "full service realtor," and I have seen the difference he makes and I'm very pleased with the whole experience. "

"We met Chris in 2005 when we decided to build a house in the Behrens Ranch neighborhood. At the time, Chris was one of the two sales representatives with Newmark Homes and the get-go, we were impressed with how much he knew about the area, each of the floor plans available, and what would work best for us. We loved that home but decided to sell it in 2010 when we were considering buying a larger home in a different neighborhood. Fast-forward to 2014, we bumped into Chris one evening and started talking about getting back into a home. When he asked what we were looking for, we told him "the same house we built with you and Newmark". He chuckled at first but when he realized we were serious he said, "let me see what I can find". That was a Thursday night. Saturday morning, he called with the news that the house we in 2010 had gone on the market the night before and was wondering if we were interested. Without any hesitation, we met with him to take a tour of the house and give him our "yes" or "no" answer. We told Chris "let's make it happen" and he immediately went to work. Chris got us in touch with a lender that evening (on a Saturday) which allowed us to get an approval and made an offer that night. With offers pouring in after ours, Chris made sure to stay in close contact with the seller's realtor and also kept us in the loop (which we appreciated). In the end, everything worked out and the sellers approved our offer and after 30 days, the house was once again, ours. Had it not been for Chris and his knowledge of the market, his connections, and his quick thinking, none of this would have been possible. We HIGHLY recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy a home. Thank you, Chris, for everything!" - Rochelle

"I had the great pleasure of working with Chris Tinnell - I've never worked with a harder working agent. If you have a house to buy or sell Chris is the person I would go to!!!!" - Barry Fostvelt
