5 Star Zillow Review

This man is a S.H.A.R.K. He's: Sharp, Helpful, Accessible, Reliable and Knowledgeable. In short, he's the one you want to be on your side, whether you're buying, selling, or renting a home. I've worked with him in the past, and let me tell you, he will go above and beyond to get you THE DEAL that YOU want. He's an overachiever by nature and it works out for you, the client since he'll be doing all he can to make sure you're happy and successful because that's his business. He's smart, resourceful, and he will flat out work harder than you if you hire him. I've seen him work deals and still be up thinking about it at dinner, on dates, with family. How do I know this? Because he talked about how he came up with his solutions the next day in our meetings and we would ask him when he thought of it, and he would say, "on my date" or "while BBQ with family". Hire him to sell or buy your homes.…

Chris just helped us sell our home in Brentwood! We had some contingencies to deal with as we were also in the process of buying another home. Chris was great about listening to what our major concerns were and of taking all that into account when we first met with him. From the first meet with him, he outlined the sale process for us and gave us a timeline in which we could expect things to take place and he adheres to that! We definitely really appreciated how quick to respond he always was to everything and was always available to answer our questions! There were times he came over and brought docs for us to sign which greatly helps! From communication to advertising to dealing with issues that came up Chris was great in handling all aspects and this made the process a great experience. We are happily settling into our new home now and really thank Chris for helping us through the str…

I hired Chris as my realtor after interviewing two others. His knowledge about the market and the sales process made me extremely comfortable during this stressful process. He marketed my property very well and was very hands-on during the process handling the open house, inspections, and negotiation. I got well over what we listed my home for and I'm extremely happy at how easy Chris made the process. He was very responsive to any questions I had and was always in constant communication with updates about where we were during the process. I plan to hire Chris again when I purchase my next property and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Chris if you are looking to Buy or Sell!

Chris recently helped with the sale of our home and I was so pleased to have him on our team. He went above and beyond to make sure the process was effortless on our side. Communication is very key in real estate and this is something that Chris understands and is excellent in doing. He answered any and all questions I had and helped address any concerns that came about. Chris is extremely professional but at the same time very approachable and the level caring he demonstrated was outstanding. He really did an excellent job and exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend him at anyone looking to sell their home.

Chris is very knowledgeable in the Brentwood area. He not only helped us sell our home in Antioch, but he also found a buyer in less then a week. He also helped us find our perfect home.

I have recommended him to a lot of people and if you work with him we are sure you will be as satisfied as our family was.

Chris helped me sell my house and buy a new one in Sonoma County. I interviewed three agents and Chris was the only one that did his homework and came prepared. His marketing was excellent and sold my house above asking in 7 days. I highly recommend Chris.

5 Star Zillow Review

Chris helped me sell my home and was very responsive to my needs and concerns. The buyer of the home had a FHA loan and there were a lot of hoops to jump through. Chris was very helpful with this process and patient with my frustrations when these hoops caused the sell process to slow and lag. There were also a lot of last minute changes by the buyers agent that Chris handled SO well.

Knowledgeable, dedicated and responsive. Within minutes, he gets the sale done! It was amazing working with this charismatic gentleman and I recommend you buy from him or with him- he works with you and for you. He definitely set the bar high and he is a go getter! Thank you for all your hard work in closing for my tri-level bachelorette house! You have made this woman's dream of being a home owner come true! Forget the rest go with the BEST: Chris RAEL pronounced REAL! Twenty stars hands down!

5 Star Zillow Review

Two words: amazingly awesome! Chris is more than five stars. He went over and beyond for us. He treated us like family. Showed us compassion, dedication, trust, honestly, commitment and more. Every time he showed us a house he came prepared with a facts sheet about the house. He would talk to the seller to get more information for us if we had specific questions. All our questions or concerns he answered for us. He got back to us immediately and was always available. He guided us through the process perfectly especially for us being first time home buyers. I would highly recommend Chris to any and everyone looking to purchase a new home. We greatly appreciate all of his time and efforts. Thank you Chris so very much.

Chris did a wonderful job of showing homes in the Summerset development of Brentwood. Highly recommended! With a shortage of homes to show Chris showed us a number of homes for 4 straight weeks!

When it came down to wanting to purchase a home I knew Chris was the one to call. He was patient with us and I looked at many homes trying to find the right one. Since then, I have had the opportunity to work with Chris on many real estate transactions. He is very knowledgeable and has some wonderful advice. I would highly recommend Chris Real to help you with your real estate needs.

I have worked with Chris, and he definitely knows how to streamline the purchase of your new home. He is proactive and works with intent and a sense urgency to meet expectations for a great home buying experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a new home.

Zillow 5 Star Review

I was home searching for approx. 5 months prior to contacting with Chris. Our first meeting he was able to show me 5-6 properties in 1 weekend. Within 2 weeks my home buying process has begun. Chris is extremely knowledgeable with the area and never during the sales process was I confused or disappointed. I would highly recommend Chris and his team for your real estate needs. Thank you Chris for making this experience awesome even during COVID.
