We hear a lot in the real estate world of ‘team’ this and ‘team’ that. When it comes to integrity, professional skills, and the personal touch of this commendable partnership Chris Swim and Tracy Keaton are without peer. Chris and Tracy run what I would call a ‘Full Service Operation’. From sales to staging, yard clearance to painting, marketing and meeting with clients, they do it all in a heartbeat for their clients, saving them time, money, energy and stress. Chris and Tracy ‘got it done’ with their blend of pragmatic business sense, personal affability, and aesthetic sensibilities. When I had questions or qualms about the market or property, Chris was a learned and respected confidant. Chris and Tracy came highly recommended from a friend whose house they sold in a down market for an upwards price. I could not have made a better choice. Skilled, resourceful and forthright, they are as good as it gets, and they are far and away my top picks as professionals I will do business with again. Very truly yours,

Chris is a true professional. Experienced, knowledgeable and reliable. He manages the big picture and all the details. One of the best negotiators in the business!

Chris is a true professional who helped my family successfully relocate to Orinda from Seattle, WA. He and his partner, Tracy Keaton, provided personal attention to the details surrounding our home search and purchase. As a busy executive with a demanding new job, I needed a professional I could turn to with full confidence and trust to manage the most important decision in our move: buying a new home. I can say with confidence that we actually found our dream home, and without Chris and Tracy I’m not sure it would have happened. Chris and his team were exceptionally trustworthy, knowledgeable, and accessible in helping our journey to buy a home. I definitely recommend Chris Swim and his team to anyone buying or selling a home in the East Bay.

My wife and I hired Chris when we were relocating from out of state. We were immediately impressed by his knowledge of the Lamorinda community and the highly competitive real estate market. We were even more impressed that he also that he took the time to get to know our family and find us a property that ultimately we would be happy in for years to come. On a personal level you couldn’t find a more trustworthy individual and a man of very high principals. These things coupled with his superior negotiating skills and attention to detail is why I wouldn’t think of working with any other real estate agent.

Chris and Tracy did an excellent job staging and preparing our house for market. We were extremely pleasantly surprised to receive multiple offers! They negotiated the deal flawlessly and the entire experience for us was very positive. Thank you Chris and Tracy!

We worked with Chris and Tracy to purchase our home in Orinda. Coming from out of state we didn't know how difficult it is to navigate the Orinda housing market, we are so lucky we ended up with them. In an area where most houses go to multiple offers and there is very low inventory it really helped to have an agent with extensive knowledge and many years experience working in this type of environment. Not to mention very well connected. We love our house and I don't think we would have got it without Chris and Tracy on our side. I highly recommend them if you are looking to purchase or sell a house in the Lamorinda area... there is no way we would use anyone else!

Commitment to Quality...Industry Knowledge...Precision Execution: These are the attributes which most distinguish Chris Swim and Tracy Keaton from their colleagues and make them such a valuable "asset" to their clients.
Chris Swim and Tracy Keaton recently helped us find a new home in Orinda. As a new family relocating from Seattle, we knew little about the area. The Chris Swim Group educated us on the schools, culture and current housing market. They unequivocally helped us navigate finding a new home in a very competitive market. I would hire the Chris Swim Group again without hesitation!

Chris Swim and Tracy Keaton were our agents selling one house in Happy Valley, Lafayette and a house in Piedmont Calif. I have to say that the two of them working together were miraculous. Both are so good at what they do. The house in Piedmont was being handled through an attorney in Alameda. He had difficult and complicated questions for Chris. We were at a meeting were Chris handled the situation in such a professional way even the attorney was impressed. Tracy made things happen. Her skills with interior design and negotiation were incremental in both sales
My wife and I can't say enough and would recommend Chris or Tracy to any Buyer or seller.
Mike W., Lafayette, CA
Chris is a true RE professional. His decades of experience and knowledge give his clients a huge market advantage when buying or selling. He has negotiated 3 real estate deals for my family over the past few years. Whether we are selling or buying, at the end of a painless day, Chris has negotiated to our advantage.

I rarely take time to write reviews but wanted to write a quick review for Chris Swim. I met him at an open house a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, I was outbid on the home we looked at, but Chris contacted me about a week later with an even better home! Unlike other realtors, Chris doesn't send a bunch of spam listings, etc. He only sent quality listings that met our requirements. He listened and actually knew what we were looking for! He is a true professional and has been a pleasure to work with. I would definitely work with Chris again.
