It was a cold and dreary Friday afternoon in December. All the work to make the house look just perfect was done.
The only thing left was to have the house inspected. That seemed like a non-issue since the seller had never had any significant problems with it.
The home inspector had gone all through the home and up on the rooftop like Santa’s Reindeer. “All good so far,” he said. “I only need to put on my coveralls, crawl under the house and I’ll be done”.
It’s road trip time! I’m cruising down from San Francisco to Anaheim, California, and I am PUMPED. Why, you ask? Well, because I’m heading to the biggest bash of the year – the Keller Williams Family Reunion 2023. It’s the industry’s largest training, networking, and cultural event, and I’m ready to soak it all in.
We’re celebrating Keller Williams’ 40th birthday in the business. That’s amazing! You know what they say, life begins at 40! And what better way to celebrate than with a giant party in Anaheim.
But that’s not all, folks. Our co-founder Gary Keller has been ranked as the nation’s #2 most powerful leader in real estate for 2023! That’s right, #2 baby! Gary has been working tirelessly to create a real estate brokerage where entrepreneurs can thrive, and it shows. He’s been named one of the top 5 most powerful people in residential real estate brokerage for the last 10 years! This guy is a real estate rockstar!
I’ll be documenting my journey on social media, and I even wrote a debut song just for this occasion!

One of the first steps to a successful home-buying journey is determining how much house you can afford. Setting a realistic budget will help you steer clear from overextending yourself financially. In addition, it allows you to make informed decisions about the type of house you should be looking for and in what location.
Foreclosure can be a stressful and difficult time for any homeowner. They face the reality of losing their dream home, which can, in turn, significantly impact their financial situation. For this reason, a lot of homeowners who are on the verge of foreclosure consider the option of selling the house to avoid the negative impact of foreclosure on their credit and financial stability.

I’m honored to be ranked by REAL Trends again in 2020 as one of the Top Real Estate Teams in California.

Thank YOU for helping me reach this goal by serving you!

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.
We would like to express many thanks to Chris and his team. From the first day we met Chris, he is always so professional and helpful. From early morning to late night, from weekday to weekend, you can always find him if needed. He always patiently answers all the questions our family has. Chris and his team deliver high quality work from preparing our home for sale, open houses until the day our home was sold. It only took about two weeks to get our home ready to list for sale. His team prepared our home perfectly ready for the open house and took great photos and videos. Chris knows the area so well. With his hard work and wise strategy, we are able to achieve our goal although the market shifts a bit. We are so glad to have Chris as our agent. He is so nice to work with. Such a wonderful experience working with Chris. HIGHLY recommend Chris Eckert as your agent.
Chris is a fabulous realtor! Chris and his team managed beautiful remodeling work to increase the value of our home, made great choices for staging and showing our home, listed the property well, and advocated for a great price. He was meticulous with attention to detail regarding the improvements on the house and any issues and questions that came up during the process. We could not be happier with the work he did to get us a great price for our house, and to be sure all the details were managed well.
Chris Eckert (handles San Mateo County; found us our current house) was REALLY great. He’s super honest and straightforward. Also, very detail-oriented when it comes to helping with the intricacies of the process and intensely focused on protecting your interests in the negotiation. This guy was pure gold for us; not your typical real estate agent 🙂
