As a seller, selling a house is a stressful time. You have buyers looking for and nitpicking every minor issue of your home to try and drive the price down. Long gone are the days of “as is”, cash offers, with 15 day closes. The market has shifted and everyone is trying to buy value at a great price. When we decided to list our home, we had already purchased our future home out of state, which we knew would only compound the stress of managing a transaction like this from almost 1,000 miles away. Khristian was nothing but professional and helpful, from the listing appointment to the close of escrow, and even beyond. Khris came to our listing appointment prepared, having already researched comps and developed a strategy that he wanted to propose, discuss, agree to and execute. He didn’t come in and say “this is how we have to do this”, he was open to our ideas, but provided a dose of reality on anything we needed it on. We agreed to list the house with him. At the listing appointment, we walked the entire property and agreed to things that we were going to do before listing the house in order to maximize exposure and value. Khris made some great recommendations, and probably earned us another $10-20k in value for less than $5k in work to make the house as appealing to buyer’s current desires as possible. Again, this was done in a perfect way, not too firm, but wanted to make sure he let us know what we needed to do to be successful. When it came to marketing, the pictures, videos and web assets were top notch! After seeing the video of the house, I wasn’t sure I wanted to sell it, it was too beautiful! Khris also helped arrange 3 bids from staging companies, and helped us choose the one who brought the best deal to us. When the house went on the market, Khris used his masterful social media presence and connections to get the word out. We had over 150 views and a dozen saves on the property within 24 hours on a single site alone. Khris fielded multiple calls from agents and brokers, set up private showings, held an open house and finally got us multiple offers in a very short time (less than 2 weeks). We ended up accepting an offer over our asking price and closing the transaction on a timeline that met our needs and desires. Khristian went above and beyond throughout the entire process. As a remote seller, things like needing to adjust the sprinkler system to meet changing seasonal weather patterns become an expensive proposition. You either fly back to do it yourself or pay someone to come out. Instead, Khristian handled many of these things without even a minute of hesitation. He met with workers, let them in, oversaw work, and kept us up to date in real time to prevent any problems or missed expectations. Khris does the things that “aren’t in a realtors job description”, because he isn’t just a realtor. He is a real estate business partner. He treats your home and your transaction exactly like he would treat his own. I simply cannot express how happy I was with his services, and to have his friendship for the future. I would instantly and strongly recommend him to any friends, family or colleagues that needed not just a realtor, but a real estate business partner. Don’t get fooled by a dinosaur who has been resting on their laurels for 25 years, Khris is a rare breed of real estate professional who not only earns his commission, he outworks what he gets paid. That just doesn’t happen in this business! Keep it up Khristian, your success will only be limited by the inability to create clones of yourself for scalability.
