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 🙂
