Clients are saying:
"Chris has helped our family with three transactions over the last ten years, and has been a huge asset to us each time. She has great contacts in the market and has a finger on the pulse of what is going on. I always trusted that Chris had my best interests in mind with regard to deal terms, pricing and timing. She truly became our partner in each of the transactions, not just a broker."
"Chris spent significant time with us to look at various options around the North Shore. She has an excellent knowledge of the area and she was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. Chris played a pivotal role in helping us find our dream home, negotiating on the purchase, and supporting us throughout the process. She is the consummate professional!"
"Chris was instrumental in our successful move from the city to the suburb (during the COVID-19 pandemic). She knows each North Shore neighborhood intimately, spent the time to get to know us and our needs throughout the process, and was always available and responsive. Importantly, Chris really got our back when we were negotiating with the sellers' agent and came through for us. We could not have been more thrilled with the outcome. Thanks, Chris, for everything!"
"Chris is an incredible realtor who shows a true passion for her sellers and buyers. She really is great! I definitely recommend using Chris as your realtor if you are considering buying or selling! Not only is she passionate and effective in her work, but she is also beyond kind. Working with Chris was just great, she was easy to communicate with and truly represented us during this transaction. She was 100 percent in tuned with all the specs and details and went above and beyond for us during and after the sale! For example, post selling the our home, she got us a painting of the house as a “departing” gift. This really means a lot to us and is hanging in our home down in Florida! Thank you for everything, Chris, you were great!
