“Chris and I faced many challenges with the sale of my property -- none of which we were to blame for -- and ultimately succeeded because of Chris's demeanor and positive attitude. Some agents may have lost confidence or may have lost patience with me, but not Chris. He was steady and sure throughout the entire process and I fear my condo might still be on the market if I didn't have Chris on my side.”
Jonathan, Washington DC (Seller)
“Chris was incredible to work with in every way.
Several years ago I was in the market for a condo and I assumed that realtors were interchangeable. After viewing numerous properties with various other agents, I realized that my assumption was completely wrong but fortunately I found a Century 21 Redwood Realty agent that I adored and I knew that I would go back to her in the future. I was disappointed when I did and I found out that she was not providing those services anymore but she referred me to Chris with no hesitation and promised that he was the best. She was right again - Chris is the best!
There really are no adjectives that can adequately express my gratitude and appreciation...balancing long work hours, family, friends, etc. while trying to find a home in this competitive market would have been impossible without Chris. More specifically, his optimism, honesty, comprehensive research (not just a list of comps but constant communication with the seller's agents, scheduling pre-offer inspections, financing, insurance, resale, red flags, etc.), his long work hours, commitment, patience, overall professionalism, and ethics beyond reproach made the difference between the past 9 months with infinite number of houses viewed, offers submitted, and the final closing being a positive celebratory experience rather than a negative one. ”

“After our first experience buying our first home with Chris, we never never considered other options. We were extremely satisfied with his knowledge, responsiveness, professionalism, and support throughout the process.
Sometimes I felt like my questions were not so knowledgeable, but Chris always reminded me that they were important because they were important to me, and helped to unpack complicated information in a way that I could understand.
Chris was very patient and understanding with us--even as I traveled internationally for work--before our close and sale were final. He was communicative throughout and worked with us in different time zones and would always go the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. ”
Martina Fongyen, Darnestown, MD (Buyer)
“Chris has been the most excellent and supportive agent we could have asked for. As an agent Chris embodies knowledge; diligence; patience; and always ensures timeliness in all actions related to the transaction. We have relied on Chris many times before and this time was no different. He never fails to impress! In fact, our main reasons for working with Century 21 Redwood Realty was Chris. I have also recommended Chris to my friend who just purchased her first property with Chris's help and she is as impressed as we are.
Aside from his qualities as an agent, Chris is simply a pleasure to work with as a person, always polite, cheerful, and considerate of his client's requests and needs. Chris's naturally cheerful personality has always put my family and I on ease and we feel extremely comfortable in approaching Chris with any questions and concerns regarding our real estate needs. He has continuously advised us on important issues since 2008.

Hani Khoja (Buyer)
“We always value good relationship with others especially with someone we interact or deal with on a regular basis. My husband and I are so thankful that Chris has all the good qualities as a person that it was not difficult to build that rapport with him right from our first meeting. We felt comfortable in expressing our desires and goals in selling the house; he understood it, and he did not hesitate to help us.”
Myra and Antonio Gajo, Ashburn Va (Seller)
“Chris Sanders is a great agent. I really trust his advice and knowledge of the market. He is a good listener and understands the needs and priorities of his clients. He really cares about his clients. He is approachable and always found a way to fit me in his busy schedule.This is the second home I have bought with his help. I strongly recommend him!!! In fact, I have already recommended him to several friends of mine who have already bought their home with his assistance.”

“Chris is a professional in the true sense of the word. He always keeps a level head despite the hiccups that naturally occur in every home closing process. I trust his judgment, and his ability to navigate the sale of a home from initial listing all the way through closing. I've now bought or sold three properties with Chris, and I expect there will be more in the future.”
Ross Dannenberg, Washington, DC (Seller)
“Chris was the best broker I could have ask for. He was patient with my ever changing needs and wishes for my home. His knowledge and experience far exceeded my expectation and helped me get through the ups and downs of purchasing my first home. Chris always made himself available and he always knew when to explain something to me or check in without me even asking! I will be recommending Chris to my friends and family in the future! ”
Marla DePaolis, Falls Church VA (Buyer)
“This is the third time we have worked with Chris and could not be more positive about the experience. Chris just gets everything right, fast and with great results. Very highly recommended!”

Lindsay Billingsley, Gaithersburg MD (Buyer)
“You were the best Chris. I could not have asked for a better agent. It was truly a pleasure to work with you. You will be my first call next time I am ready to buy.
Don't hesitate to work with Chris. I really can't say enough nice things about him and how he handled the sale of our home. ”
Sara B. Washington, DC (Seller)
“He's the real deal! Thanks for all the help.”
William Astor, Arlington (Buyer)
“Best agent I have ever worked with, mostly because of his professionalism, knowledge of the area, and understanding of our needs. I highly reommend him. ”
Sue Ellen Wilson, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“My wife and I had gone through several brokers before meeting Christopher Sanders who not only was the best agent we have ever worked with, but also the best person and professional with who we've ever had the pleasure of working. To say Chris is part of our family would not be an exaggeration and there was never even a consideration of going with anyone else, wherever Chris Sanders goes or is, is where our business will always be.
Chris is easygoing and so agreeable that sometimes we would forget what a consummate professional he was until the more difficult aspects of the home-buying process. His attention to detail during the negotiation and contract phase were lifesaving and invaluable to us. From the selection to inspection there was no one we trusted more than Chris. He approaches everything as if it is for himself and his family therefore we have full confidence in anything he recommends and don't even think of him as a broker anymore but more as a trusted adviser and friend.
Chris is in a category all his own in terms of professional competence and attention to detail. Despite our crazy schedule and sometimes unrealistic expectations Chris worked with us and helped us find our perfect home.
We've never done a testimonial before, but because of how strongly we feel about Chris and the exceptional service he provides we not only are proud to endorse, but also insist to all of our friends that they meet with him as the ONLY broker for your home-buying needs.
Joshua and Megan Walker, Alexandria VA (Buyer)
“Chris's easy-going personality and extensive knowledge of the market put us at ease during our home search. He also had a lot of helpful insights about ways to renovate or improve properties and the costs associated with renovations. Chris never tried to push his opinion on us or push us into buying anything; he let us reach our own conclusions, but gave us his thoughts whenever we asked. When we decided to make an offer, Chris's analysis of the comps was spot-on. We weren't initially the top offer, but Chris's negotiating skills helped us to get the house anyway. We had a quick closing and he made sure that everything was taken care of on time. Chris was a calming presence during what could have easily become a very overwhelming home-buying process. He was fun to work with and we would definitely recommend him.”
Jaimee & Sarah, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Chris Sanders is a top notch real estate professional who will dedicate his time to understanding your needs and securing the best deal for you and your family whether you are buying or selling. These days it can be a challenge to find someone who is honest and trustworthy but Chris rises above the rest and I would trust him with the most complicated real estate transactions I could find.”
Don Knutson, Alexandria, VA (Seller)
“Chris was fantastic and helped with every aspect of the purchase. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a property, and have done so already to friends and other coworkers!
He was very helpful in guiding me as a first-time buyer, and answered every question that I had, even after the house had closed. ”
John Lichtefeld, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Chris Sanders is a wonderful agent to have in your corner while buying a home. My wife and I were first time buyers in Capitol Hill, and Chris showed us countless properties, many times at a moment’s notice. We often noticed a property around the middle of the day, and Chris would be showing us that same home by afternoon. During walkthroughs, his experience was invaluable in identifying pitfalls and hidden value in the diverse and historic properties of DC. Chris always provided us the essential information without being pushy. To top it all off, we ended up buying a home that Chris brought to our attention, through his extensive agent network and experience, before it even went on the market. Simply put, we owe our great find of a house to Chris’ hard work and couldn’t recommend him more highly. – M&J”
“Chris was able to quickly size up our condo and recommend how to present the property in the best possible light. His assessment of the value was right on, and we had a great offer within 3 days of listing. Really friendly and professional. We couldn't have asked for a better agent. I would recommend his services to anyone in the DC area.”
Jenn (Arlington) (Seller)
“Chris helped us feel comfortable through the stressful process of buying our first home! He was great and we are so thankful to have found someone so knowledgeable and experienced, particularly as he helped guide negotiations. We felt like he was in our corner every step along the way which his exactly what we were looking for!”
Lennie Chaisson (Buyer)
“Chris is experienced, courteous, dedicated and professional. I was skeptical at first about using the loan officers and home inspectors he recommended, but he always gave at least two recommendations and each one provided excellent customer service. He knows the DMV area exceedingly well, and went the extra mile for me during the home buying process, offering me rides and following up promptly to answer questions or request documents. As a first time homebuyer, he helped me get a price 6.5% less than the original list price and quite a bit below the appraised value. Looking forward to working with him again someday to sell the place we found together”
David, DC (Buyer)
“Chris Sanders was recommended to us by a friend when we were purchasing our townhouse in 2009. He was able to translate our needs into the home we purchased all while I was living in Hawaii! We knew that if we were to sell our townhouse, he would be the only broker we would use. We know that we are not a multi million dollar client but he treated us like we were. We always felt like all of his attention and focus was on us, our needs, and most important, our budget! He never once tried to up-sell us a single property. He respected our budget and always gave us expert advice when we were touring homes. He has treated us as family from day one and we consider him a true friend, not just our agent. Our daughter asks how he is doing and loved spending time with him during the various stages of the sale and home buying process. This proved critical for us because it allowed us the time to focus on selecting our new home. If you want a Real Estate Agent there are plenty of them out there. If you want someone who will treat you like family, always look out for your best interest, and guide you with professionalism every step of the way then, there is only one person you need to see. That person is Chris Sanders.”
Chris, Danielle, Reagan, and Meli Miller Alexandria, VA (Seller)
“Simply said, Christopher Sanders has exceeded all our expectations of what a real estate agent can do. As first time home buyers, we appreciated how Chris was always friendly, patient, and accessible as my wife and I were trying to find our ideal home. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and was unflappable during a complicated multiple-offer negotiation over our condo.
It's so easy to be blinded by emotions and make poor decisions as first time home buyers. But time and time again, Chris has shown that he was looking out for our best interest. Because of that trust (and his fantastic negotiating abilities), we know we want Chris representing us for our next home purchase.
