★★★★★

Chris is a knowledgeable, hard working, and high integrity real estate agent. I feel incredibly comfortable recommending him to anyone looking for an agent in the Seattle area. I can speak to my experience as a buyer but I would definitely recommend Chris to any seller as well. I closed on a house in July 2021 in the middle of one of the most competitive markets there's been in history. We got this done by

1) Remaining patient. Although we didn't make as many offers (5 in total) as many buyers, we saw a handful of houses a week starting in April 2021. As the weeks went by, we managed to get a great feel for the confluence of our price point and priorities could meet. All the while, Chris was level headed and optimistic despite our highs and lows. I never felt the slightest bit of pressure from Chris to lower the bar or raise our budget.

2) Keeping an open mind, trusted Chris expertise. I came to Chris early on with a small number of neighborhoods that I was interested in. Over time I kept making concession after concession about walkability/house quality/etc in order to stay competitive in those neighborhoods. Chris opened our eyes to pockets of Seattle elsewhere that gave us everything we were looking for in our original search area but where we get so much more value.

3) Rapport and Relationships. Chris works at Windermere which is an agency you'll be very familiar with if you're looking at homes in Seattle and has done an excellent job building up a network beyond even that. It felt like Chris had an excellent ability to advocate for me during negotiations and closing because of the trust that he had built up with the selling side. It's hard to quantify but that really made me feel like I was always putting my best foot forward.

4) A little bit of luck, but engineered luck. It's too competitive to just stick to a single strategy and expect things to work out in a couple offers. We put together good contracts, didn't sit on the sidelines, stayed optimistic, explored new areas in order to better our chances. Also, we used the seemingly only thing we had in our favor, time, to make it work. Maybe you'll have a different advantage, but I'm sure Chris will identify it and use that advantage to it's fullest.

Overall, I really sympathize with buyers right now. It's tempting to offer on a house below your needs just so you can end your search by going way above ask. Thankfully, that's not what happened for me and Chris was the right agent to guide us to that result. Give him a call and I think you'll feel the same way - good luck!

Chris helped me sell my home and I couldn't be happier! I have never sold a home, so unfamiliar with everything that went into the process. Chris helped every step of the way and went above and beyond my expectations. He was always immediately responsive to any questions and updating me along the way. The house went for a great price, which delighted me, but it wouldn't have been as good an experience had Chris not been a wonderful agent to work with.

Chris Reis did an excellent job helping me to find and purchase a Queen Anne condo. He was highly responsive at all times, he offered valuable insight on market conditions (both qualitative and quantitative), and he provided helpful advice about the acquisition process.

My wife and I worked with Chris to sell our home in the Magnolia neighborhood in Seattle. He worked closely with us and was a big help in the planning process, even prior to being under contract as our listing agent. He was always helpful and hands-on, despite the challenging environment of a pandemic. It was a pleasure working with Chris!

Chris helped my husband and I find the perfect home for our growing family. He was really helpful in helping us pick the right homes for us to see, was diligent preparing the offer, and was able to secure us the house we wanted among several interested buyers at a good price. He also was able to answer any questions we had & made us feel really comfortable through the process. Thank you Reis Residential!

Chris has been a very patient realtor over the past few months. We have looked at dozens of houses and he accommodates our schedule every time.
He does a great job of helping us understand the market and helping us as first home buyers find a good deal.

We began working with Chris several months ahead of our listing. He listened to our goals and concerns, taking into account the unprecedented times we currently live in, and demonstrated experience and good judgement in helping us prepare our home for listing. He was very helpful and hands-on (despite the necessities of social distancing) and was not afraid to offer suggestions that helped us sell our home quickly. Chris was calm and level headed throughout the process and a joy to work with.

I was shopping for apartments / houses. Chris helped me better understand pros and cons of each type and make a good decision. Then he showed me different places which I had chosen very quickly. He always immediately responded to emails and managed to get property visit appointments in less than a  day. For each place he showed to me he thoroughly explained all the pros and cons. He patiently answered all the questions I had about any relevant or irrelevant detail.

We worked with Chris on finding a rental property recently. He was extremely easy to work with and provided us several options to look at that met all our requirements. During the closing stage, he was organized and provided us all the information needed to feel comfortable  signing a lease. Highly recommend Chris!
