“He's the real deal! Thanks for all the help.”
William Astor, Arlington (Buyer)
“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)
“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)
“My husband had previously worked with Chris to purchase a home in 2008 and had a wonderful experience with him so it was only natural to choose Chris again. We asked Chris to sell not one - but two houses - in a short amount of time. Chris walked us through price points and recommended "fixes/renos" to get the house market easy. Chris has a great eye for knowing what needs to get done to get a house sold. Not only were we selling two houses but we were also moving across country - we left town and Chris in charge of the sale with no worries. Both of our houses were under contract within a week of them hitting the market!!! Chris is always a pleasure to deal with, has a great eye of detail, and cares about the well being of his clients. ”
Erin - Washington, DC (Seller)
“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.”
Jeanine & Adam, Washington, DC (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)
“With other family members, I purchased a condo in Alexandria. Our agent, Christopher Sanders, set out to meet our targeted needs, patiently keeping us abreast of developments in the market and taking us to viewings until we found something right. He calmly helped us negotiate a tricky bidding process, and settled our nerves during the ordeal that leads to closing. Without hesitation, I would recommend him to anyone looking for real estate in the DC metropolitan area.”
Christine Cardellino, Alexandria, VA (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)
“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!”
E. F., Washington, DC (Buyer)
“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!”
Laura & Gowri, Washington, D.C. (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)
“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 was constantly on top of all of the contingencies that we needed the seller to fix to make sure they were done properly and on time. He is a master negotiator.”
Colleen (Arlington, VA) (Buyer)
“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. ”
Another Attorney, Washington, D.C. (Buyer)
“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 . ”
Aimee M. Cooper, Washington DC (Buyer)
“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)
“Chris is the best! He is well-knowledgeable in this field, and he keeps you informed as well. And most importantly, he is easy to get along with, and always carry a positive attitude. We would not have achieved our goals without his proper guidance. We are so thankful!”
Myra and Antonio, Ashburn, VA (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)
“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)
“I was a very uninformed first time home buyer and Chris was exceedingly patient and helpful during the whole process. Would highly recommend him to any one looking to buy in the DC area. ”
Jing Jing Zhang, Washington DC (Buyer)
“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. ”
Jeremy - Alexandria, VA (Seller)
“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)
“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 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 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)
