Clients are saying:

"Christo was great to work with. Honest with his advice and guidance throughout the purchase process. He explained each step in detail and was courteous to all sides of the transaction. Overall, he was a pleasure to work with and would recommend him to all my family and friends."

"Exceptional service with outstanding communication during the entire process. Christos rented our rental home within a very short two week period! He and his office exceeded our high expectations."

"My husband and I had a fabulous experience with broker Christos Prappas. He was the most professional and trustworthy realtor we have ever met. From the very beginning of listing our condo, throughout the showings, sale, and closing he was easy to contact, talk to, and problem solve with. He is one of the most confident individuals we ever met and felt assured he would sell our unit. Needless to say he not only did just this, but he did it in a timely manner at a price we were hoping to achieve. I would strongly recommend Christos to anyone looking to list or buy a piece of property. We are so thankful our friend recommended him to us!"
