Client Testimonial: Kevin M. (concurrent buyer + seller)

“By the spring of 2006, I knew it was time to sell my home of eight years. I had recently become single, and I needed to downsize. It was not an easy decision to make —I truly loved my home.

Having never sold a house before, I had a lot of questions and concerns, and felt like I needed a realtor who understood my situation and could give me the attention I felt I would need. Christopher’s ad in the RFT caught my eye, so I called him. It didn’t take me long to decide that he was the perfect realtor for me. He knew the city well, and understood the appeal of city living — as well as its challenges. Christopher fielded my questions and offered advice. After our first meeting, I knew I had made the right decision.

I took the next few weeks to spruce up my home, getting it ready for the sale. The idea of strangers traipsing through my house horrified me and I wanted it to be in tip-top shape. This, however, was an unreasonable expectation – the house was over 100 years old, and I had little time and hardly any extra cash. When Christopher arrived on a bright Sunday morning two weeks later to photograph the house, I felt as unprepared to put my house on the market as I had when I first met him. But his keen eye saw the house’s strengths, and his photography expertise captured my home at its best. When he showed me the marketing flyer and web site he had created a few days later, I was amazed! My house really looked ready to sell! What’s more — the first person that looked at my house, bought it! I was, once again amazed. I credit Christopher and his marketing savvy completely for this.

In addition, Christopher helped me find my new home amidst all the preparation for selling my home. He tirelessly took me to home after home, listening and watching as I reacted to each one. He understood exactly what I was looking for, and as a result, found my current home for me very quickly. The road to the closing date of both houses was a tricky one, and one that I wouldn’t have been able to navigate without him. Incredibly, the entire process, from signing with Christopher, to closing on both houses the same morning and moving into my new home that afternoon, was less than two months long.

I truly believe that, had I chosen another realtor, my experience would not have been as good as it was with Christopher. I have heard horror stories from friends who have sold and bought houses. I have no horror stories from my experience with Christopher, not one. In fact, I have very pleasant memories of the summer of 2006. Christopher is excellent at what he does, and I heartily recommend him to anyone and everyone needing a realtor.
