Chris has sold two Cleveland Heights houses for me in the past year. He is AMAZING! The first house sold within 4 days with multiple offers, and he sold the second one before it was even listed. I felt that he understood my priorities (I would prefer a quick and easy sale, rather than waiting 6 months for a few thousand more dollars) and *obviously* executed amazingly. His son, Adam, also works with him and together they offer flawless communication, unmatchable expertise, and, most importantly, they get the job done.
Apparently the negotiation and listing advice he has given me was correct, since both sales were completed without a hitch. I don't think there is anyone out there with a better understanding of the "temperature" of the market, what improvements to make (or not make), and when to list. In the first sale he suggested several improvements to make the house more appealing (which I completed), but on the second one he felt the time was right to move straight to listing "as is" - and clearly he was right!
If you're looking for a realtor I would advise you to call a few, just so you know how much better Chris is than the rest - for my last listing I emailed and called TWICE to another agent's office, and they never even returned my call.... or you can just take my word for it, hire Chris, and live happily ever after.
