Clients are saying:
"Christo always kept me updated on the progress of the home. He conducted open houses and relayed the responses. During the closing Christo always conducted himself very professional and kept me informed till the end."
"Christos is a rock star - he helped us sell our old home and purchase a new home very quickly. He did so by first helping us find a home that would retain its value, and then identifying potential areas of renovation for our that home when was time to sell it (making sure that we spent money on the right things), highlighting our home's most attractive assets for the listing, calling out potential pitfalls and advantages of the properties we were interested in, and instilling confidence of a smooth transaction in both the seller's realtor and buyer's realtor. Furthermore, he shared his extensive network of equally knowledgeable craftsmen, lawyers, and loan officers with us; this team anticipated/prevented any possible hiccups and ensured that everyone involved was well informed and that everything was done not just on time, but ahead of time. My husband and I were very nervous about selling and purchasing a home simultaneously, but Christos kept us focused on the parts that were within our control and everything went as smoothly as we could have hoped!"
"We felt fortunate to find Christos. He met with us and we felt like our property was the most important to him. Christos put together a beautiful package with pictures detailing the family friendly layout and wonderful community. He sold our home in near record breaking time, working to be sure everyone was informed and any and all questions were answered quickly and professionally. We are grateful for his attentiveness, knowledge and friendly personality. Thank you Christos!!"
"Christos Prappas made sure my home was presented and shown to the real estate market with it's best features in the forefront. Mr. Prappas emailed many comparisons to me of the similar properties in and around my neighborhood. His knowledge of the housing costs and trends reach a wide area, most importantly, my area. His attention to detail is impressive. He is hard working and always available to answer any question I might have. I am grateful Christo Prappas became my Real Estate Agent. I highly recommend him, he is an honest, trustworthy person who you feel could be a life long friend. Barbara Gielow"
"We began working with Christos last summer as we needed to sell a Co-op we owned. He freely admitted that he was not an expert when dealing with Co-ops and then proceeded to educate himself so that he could provide us with the help we needed selling our share.
As with any Co-op there were some ups and downs, especially when a potential buyer backed off rather than provide the Co-op Board with necessary documentation (this despite having been well informed in advance by Christos of these Board requirements). Christos did not miss a beat and was able to present us with a second buyer the very same week.
Even during this time of Covid-19 Christos was there for us, able and willing to meet inspectors at the unit, work with the Property Management company and our attorney, and generally provide the necessary support so that the sale would be able to close.
We would (and definitely will) use Christos for our future real estate needs. He is a great agent and now feels like a good friend as well."
