What do Clients Say?

Christian was patient while we looks at co many homes to find the perfect home. He was able to quickly get us showings. When the time came to make an offer he always advocated for us. I would recommend Christian to anyone looking to buy a home. We will use him again in the future and to list our home if we choose to sell down the road

Kimberly McLaughlin

Funny, Attentive, and Knowledgable are only a few reasons why my first-time home buying was so enjoyable and stress-free. From touring homes to signing contracts on closing day, I could not have had a better realtor by my side throughout the process. If I didn't know what to do, Christian was always able to help. I appreciated all of his advice from finding a lender to getting my inspection, and he struck the perfect balance in our offer letter to ensure we won out of the other potential buyers. You can't go wrong with having Christian on your side.

Janrei Villavicencio

Christian was an absolute delight to work with! He was with my husband and I every step of the way. He answered all of our questions and even asked the ones we didn’t think to ask. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He made our first home building and buying experience a dream.

Teanna Willingham

From applying for a mortgage loan to closing on my first house less than a month and a half later, Christian made the entire process so seamless and I couldn’t have had a better first home buying experience. He helped me find exactly what I was looking for and I would recommend him to anyone.

Natalie Henderson

First and foremost, Christian was an amazing realtor. He was friendly, dedicated, and found a way to accommodate our tight schedules. The first time we reached out to him he immediately made plans with us to meet and walk through the home buying process so that we could have an idea of what to expect. Having him help us find our first home felt like having a close friend searching with us. He listened to everything we wanted and always took it into consideration when sending us options that popped up on the market. He listened to all our concerns and helped give us guidance whenever we felt a little lost. With the fast paced competitive market we’re currently facing it was easy to lose faith that we would ever find a home, but Christian never let us give up and so of course with his help we eventually found our new home that we love so much!
