“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)
“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. ”

“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.”

“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)
“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!”
Stephen & Kelly Barry – Oakton, VA (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 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 great in every way with the process of looking at homes and putting in the one contract we made. We particularly appreciated how he worked behind the scenes when he learned that our contract, which originally had not been picked, was being reconsidered. He waited to contact us until he felt certain things were looking good for us. In this way, he was clearly knowledgeable about the tricky process of multiple contract offers and more importantly considerate of us by not offering hope until hope was clear.”
S Nobles, 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)
“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!”
Lubomira Paclikova, 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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“i said it already but i will said it over and over very nice helpfull polite very knowlogyable person.”

“Chris Sanders knows DC very well. He understands my needs, searches for opportunities, filters them down to those matching my needs and then shows them. We need make a final decision together. Always polite, pleasant, and friendly. ”
Hani Khoja (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 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)
“He's the real deal! Thanks for all the help.”
William Astor, Arlington (Buyer)
“I have worked with Chris twice on two home purchases. He is the most responsive, knowledgable broker I have ever met. There's nothing he can't answer and he goes way beyond the call of duty with his clients.”
Blake Cooper, H Street (Buyer)
“We could not be happier with Chris and with our new home. He walked us through the entire process at a speed that worked for us. Given that this was our first home, we had a great deal of questions to all of which Chris was able to provide immediate and understandable answers. Moreover, there were many times we didn't know what we didn't know, and Chris anticipated this. His help and expertise made us feel more empowered as home buyers and more secure in making such a large commitment.
Chris was very successful in the price negotiation, and we are extremely grateful for his guidance here.
Between the success in finding a house quickly that "checked all our boxes," the ability to negotiate the price down substantially, and his knowledgeable, affable, and tenacious demeanor, Chris could not be a better example for the profession or a greater help to us as clients. We hold him in high regard and give him our highest and most enthusiastic recommendation.”
Paul, Washington, DC (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)
“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)
“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)
