My son and I were first time "home sellers" and were quite unsure what to expect or how to go about preparing our duplex for the market. From start to finish, Chris was there to answer our questions and provide whatever assistance we needed. I had expected the process to be overwhelming but with Chris' assistance everything progressed quite smoothly. He provided advice when we needed it and generally went the extra mile to ensure we were well informed. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris. Thanks for all your help, Chris. We were very happy with all your efforts on our behalf. Best of luck for the future. Regards, Kathy Collins
