Sara B. Washington, DC (Seller)
“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)
“We've had positive experiences with Chris since we purchased our previous home and recommend him to others, hands down. He has unparalleled experience, knows the market and key drivers, and is an absolute joy to work with. I will recommend Chris to family and friends so that they can have a seamless experience like we did. Chris priced the property right based on market intelligence and kept us in the loop throughout. Very satisfied with the experience, especially considering I spent considerable time out of the country as it progressed. Positive throughout. ”
Martina Fongyen, Darnestown (Seller)
“Chris was my broker buying and selling this unit. I have bough and sold 9 properties in my life and he is the most knowledgeable and professional real estate representative i have had the pleasure to deal with.”
Nicholas Lynn 1308 Clifton Washington DC (Seller)
“I've sold two properties through Chris and each experience has been excellent. Chris is a very honest, charismatic, and seasoned sales professional. i highly recommend Chris! ”
Joe Budway Denver, CO (Seller)
“When we had started looking for house, we weren't really sure how significant difference will have having an agent or trying to buy with out an agent. We were thinking having an agent is like making ourselves exposed to be pushed and may end up buying a house we don't like since we thought they may tend to close the deal than be patient and let us decide when we got the house we really like. buying without an agent might even help you to save a little money. However, after started working with Chris, we really realized it's worth it to have a professional agent like Chris in many ways and finally to be able to buy the house you like with his good negotiation skills as well as in his knowledge how to handle an offer accordingly. The processes might seem easy even after you got the house you like but all might went wrong if you don't have an agent who knows what to do accordingly and Chris is that person. Beside, he is genuine, respectful, dependable and knowledgeable. In short, he has all the good qualities you think of your agent would like to have. I really strongly recommend you to have him as your agent and you will definitely be happy with his professional service. ”
Hiwot Degu, Olney MD (Buyer)
“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.”
Don, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Chris Sanders provided excellent guidance to my husband and me during the home purchasing process. Since we first met Chris, he worked diligently with us to understand what we were looking for in a new home. He knows the DC metro region very well, and was able to recommend specific neighborhoods that fit our home-buying criteria. He was incredibly patient with us as we toured SO MANY homes before we were ready to make an offer and was always responsive to emails, calls, and texts. We really appreciated Chris's assessments of the pros and cons of each property. When it came time to make an offer, he amassed as much information as possible about comparable homes to prepare a strong offer that was protective of our interests as buyers but also served the needs of the sellers (who were looking for a longer close period). Everything about the home buying process went smoothly, and we are incredibly excited to move into our new home. We cannot speak highly enough of Chris, and we will happily recommend him to our friends for their real estate needs.”
Jeremy, Michelle, and Augie Cline--Oakton, VA (Buyer)
“Chris worked with us for the better part of two years to help us find the house that was perfect for our family. We're particularly grateful for his professionalism, responsiveness and keen knowledge of the market and best practices for negotiating!”
Geoff, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“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)
“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. ”
Ron & Roselind Yiu (Buyer)
“Second time working with Chris and once again everything went smoothly.”
Klaus W, Wasington DC (Seller)
“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)
“Chris is a true professional, and very easy to work with. He always made time for us and gave great advice. ”
Lindsay Billingsley, Gaithersburg MD (Buyer)
“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)
“We've worked with other realtors before and Chris Sanders by far is the best. Chris worked within our short timelines to help get our condo ready, listed and sold. Chris developed beautiful print materials and listened to our feedback. Chris even performed well under pressure when the AC went out during one of the open houses! Chris helped us to get asking for our condo. We were very proud that this was the second highest selling for condos in our building. Chris handled the negotiations and kept our best interests in mind. All went well with closing. Chris helped to line up everything to time the closing of the condo with the closing for our new house. He was available all along the way to answer questions and take our phone calls. We would recommend Chris to our family and friends.”
Brian and Sarah Lantz, Arlington (Seller)
“Chris is an excellent real estate agent. He took the time to learn what we wanted, and showed us homes that truly matched our needs. We truly respected and appreciated his advice and expertise. Chris did not get discouraged and didn't rush us into buying something that was not right for us. We felt that he was on our side at all times, and was excellent in negotiations with sellers. We highly recommend Chris and would use him again in an instant.”
Ralph Popp & Robin Mockenhaupt, NJ (Buyer)
“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. ”
Joe Beerman and Franziska Steyer-Beerman (Seller)
