I have been selling real estate full-time on the mid-peninsula since 2004 with Keller Williams Realty. I chose to join Keller Williams for its education-based and cultural model. The KW culture teaches and encourages a culture of giving back and sharing knowledge that has inspired a level of cooperation between agents and offices that doesn’t exist in other companies. In fact, Stanford Graduate School of Business studied the Keller William culture and now teaches business students about the importance of culture.
I am local homeowner living in the walkable Hayward Park neighborhood of San Mateo with my wife Kelli and our two dogs, Maru and Maggie, plus our kitties, Ellie Grace, Leonard, George and Ralph. In addition, I am a Burlingame property owner and real estate investor. I feel my success in serving my clients, both sellers and buyers has a lot to with my being out there and meeting my neighbors, door by door, having an “A Team” that consists of a full-time executive assistant, an award-winning stager, photography team, and trusted contractors that work with me on all my listings and renovations.

My wife and I had always wanted a house on our block for years and one day my wife texts me and says “our dream house is for sale”. I said call Chris and let’s get it.
Now getting a house in San Mateo is not something one just does easily. It is an amazing feat of to accomplish no matter who you are. The competition, the process and everything involved is beyond most folks who live outside the area’s comprehension.
We started our journey at the end of September and by mid November we had bought our Dream Home, Sold our Existing Home and are happily settling in.
Chris and his team were just phenomenal. They handled everything in such a professional manner, were always responsive and managed our money as if it were their own.
I highly recommend using Chris and his team for any of your reals estate needs.
I interviewed three listing agents before selling my home, and Chris’s presentation was by far the most professional, informative and complete. He had a clear strategy on how to approach the marketing of our home.
Once I asked Chris to represent us, he moved quickly and with precision. He personally handled the details of clearing, staging and presenting our open house, and routinely kept me updated on the activity of showings, number of interested parties and potential offers to come in.
Chris urged us to vacation away while he was in charge of marketing our home, and though at the time I felt this was inconvenient, I have no doubt now that Chris’s professionalism and marketing strategies enabled the sale of our home to outperform the market and achieve a selling price 12/5% over asking ($150,000).
I would highly recommend Chris as a strategic partner, and if you follow his guidance well, he may just take you for a burger at Alice’s!
My family recently sold an investment property in San Mateo that we had owned for many years.
We interviewed a number of real estate agents who we had worked with over the years before making our decision.
Our decision to utilize Chris Eckert’s skills and expertise resulted in an efficient & thorough plan for readying the property for sale.
We made the right decision to hire Chris as our home sold after 8 days on the market with the winning contract far exceeding our expectations.
Honest, hard working, knowledgeable are only a few reasons why I choose Chris for all my real estate needs. He has a complete understanding of the Mid-peninsula market and was there for us every step of the way.
We love this guy. He helped with the selling of our home as well as the buying of a new home. The selling, I felt, could have gone better. I think he let his assistant take the lead, and that was just a mistake. The description of our home in the listing was lacking… I would have preferred to have written it myself. However, he definitely made up for it when it was time to purchase a new home. Even after all transactions were finished, he consistently touched base with us to make sure we were doing alright. I’d definitely do business with him again.
