“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. ”

“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! ”

“My wife and I were not the easiest clients. We came in with only general ideas of what we were looking for – and where we wanted to find it. But Chris was incredibly patient with us. We never felt the sighted hint of pressure or urgency on his part. And despite being one of the busier agents in the DC / VA / MD area, Chris was almost always willing and able to accommodate our schedule – including on weekends and often with short notice. Chris is also super knowledgeable about both the market and the home-buying process. He was as much a teacher and counselor as an agent. Last (and not least), Chris is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. He was a pleasure to work with – and was great with our kids, too. We found a home we truly love, and we’re so thankful to Chris for helping us find it!”

“Chris is tremendous asset as a realtor and the type of person you want in your corner. He is very knowledgeable about how to best position the property for sale and a gifted negotiator. Our home sold within 2 days of listing (and before an open house). Within 2 days we had received 4 offers, which Chris deftly negotiated. Chris is also easy to work with and generally a good person to be around. He is a warm individual who connected with our child easily. He was incredibly patient and would respond to our numerous questions quickly and without any hint of annoyance. I have only positive things to say about him and would recommend him without reservation. ”

“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.”

“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”

“We first met Chris when we attended an open house in 2013. At the time, our family was expanding, and thanks to his straightforward nature, we immediately sensed that Chris was just the agent we were looking for. He helped us find our current home. When we wanted to sell our rental property, we looked forward to working with Chris again. Given how well this property sold, clearly, Chris is an excellent choice for a buyer or a seller. Working with Chris was seamless, transparent and set us both at ease, resulting in a very successful sale. Nothing but good things to say about Chris throughout selling our condo and buying our current home. Do yourself a favor and work with Chris as either a seller or a 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 is very knowledgeable, personable and professional. Whether searching for properties, negotiating a contract and helping me through inspections Chris always had my best interest in mind. Chris is super flexible and adapted his schedule to fit mine on numerous occasions. Chris is always responsive even after "regular business hours" which gave me peace of mind when I had questions. I would highly recommend Chris Sanders to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the DC/VA area . ”

“We interviewed four brokers and Chris Sanders was the most professional and most knowledgeable among the group. He recommended a listing price significantly above the other brokers and our home ended up selling in one week for over 5% above the listing price. Prior to the sale he convinced us to make improvements to our home to help in the presentation do that it would bring us top dollar. Overall we we had an outstanding experience dealing with Chris. We highly recommend his services to any one wishing to list or buy a home in the Washington DC metro area. ”

“We could go on and on about how amazing our experience working with Chris Sanders was--but suffice it to say that he made our first home purchase easier, and more enjoyable, than we thought possible. Beyond the fact that Chris knows his stuff, and was incredibly helpful in every professional aspect of the home purchase, he's a great person and we genuinely enjoyed our time working with him! Chris always conveyed confidence, which reassured us during the potentially stressful proceedings. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the process (from structuring offers to financing to inspections and future home improvements). Chris was beyond excellent, but most especially in patience and timely communication. Given that we are first-time home buyers it was very helpful to have Chris answer our (many) questions with a very quick turnaround.”

“Chris was extremely helpful every step of the way, resolving every concern we had as first-time homebuyers and ensuring to provide us with as much information as possible to feel comfortable with our decisions. What could have been a cumbersome and stressful process was made much easier with Chris by our side. Highly appreciate his attention, promptness, and excellent customer service! We would wholeheartedly recommend Chris to our friends and family.”

“Chris is truly an outstanding agent, as professional as he is friendly. For a first-time buyer, it was important for me to have someone help me understand the process and be patient with me as I had questions. His experience proved critical as we worked through the process; the fact that the purchase went as smoothly as it did is testament to his work and preparation. At the outset, it came down to trusting my friends who had worked with Chris previously, but as we worked together, Chris earned my trust as well.”

“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. ”

“Chris is ultra responsive, totally understanding of what we were looking for, had a keen eye when checking out properties, and was a joy to deal with and be around. We've really missed going to showings with him now that we've bought a house!”
