You can put your full confidence in Chris and his team!
First off, about us: We are a couple with three teenage kids and were seeking a house big enough to accommodate our space needs, close to my husband’s work and to BART, all within a tight fixed budget. We were renting a 3 bed – 2 bath at 1370 sq. ft. What we got: A 4 bedroom, 3 bath with 1750 sq. ft. and a mortgage PITI payment that is $400 under the rent we were paying. We saved enough on the purchase price to complete a modest kitchen remodel as well as refinish the hardwood- flooring.
Chris did a phenomenal job. At our first meeting, he explained his strategy in simple steps that proved to be very effective. Chris has assembled a qualified team that consistently gets things done efficiently and within deadlines. He walked us trough every part of the process, from the pre-qualification for the loan, preparing a competitive bid on a home, wading and waiting through the short sale process, up to escrow and closing, and finally even offering good advice about how to deal with our contractor after we had the keys.
Our purchase involved a complicated short sale and Chris and his team had the expertise to make it happen. When the prior homeowner handed over the keys, she told us that there had been multiple offers, including cash offers, some higher than our bid, but they chose our family, thanks to great recommendations from Chris on how to present the offer, we are certain!
Broker Jason Brown at stone Castle was very effective in getting us pre-qualified and finally landing us a great interest rate. Since Chris is educated as an engineer and architect and is an experienced builder, he is able to provide insight about visible repairs needed on a house or even remodeling possibilities, which can be very helpful when weighing options between properties.
Glenn Stuart of Pacific Coast Inspections was another impressive member of the team and we felt very confident about our purchase after the comprehensive home inspection report he provided. Home buying can be a stressful and emotional time for you and your family, while you still have to manage your routine. We truly appreciated Chris’s patience and kindness throughout. We ended up with a great house under budget, in the neighborhood we wanted that appraised at higher than our purchase price and continues to gain equity with a fantastic interest rate and….drum roll….we’re paying less than we did while renting! We say without reservation that you can put your full confidence in Chris and his team.
Debbie and Doug, very happy homeowners.
