Words From Our Clients
I am so glad to have found Jon on Yelp. All of these 5 star reviews are legit. He is simply awesome, as well as his entire support team.
Jon worked with me during the entire year-long construction of my new townhouse. He was there every step of the way. He advised me on what upgrades would add resale value to my home and he pointed out things that I would have never thought to consider. He negotiated on my behalf directly with the builder. Even my builder was like “where did you find this guy? he is the most knowledgeable of any realtor we ever worked with.”
My home-buying process was a breeze and drama-free. He’s a great realtor, and just an all-around good person. A real pleasure to work with and know.
Jon is knowledgeable, organized, and available for any situation/concern. His demeanor is calm, thoughtful, and friendly. He always answers any question as if it is the most important question. I felt confident throughout the entire process of selling our home.
Jon is outstanding. We’ve worked with him on both the selling and buying side and had wonderful experiences. He’s honest, no BS, and super knowledgeable. He is a broker in addition to being a real estate agent and understands the legal side, home construction, RE jargon, and is not pushy or salesman-like ever!
He was with us every step of the way in helping us sell and just recently purchase a new home. I can’t imagine doing either without Christopher RE.
We wanted to sell quickly and Jon helped us price our home so we ended up with a bidding war and sold above asking in 4 days (I know the market timing helped but so did everything he advised us on and helped us with).
Now that we’re moved into our new place, I know we made the right choice and negotiated where it matter with his expertise. We couldn’t be happier! And, I know Jon and Mary kept us sane and on track through closing while I was 9mos pregnant! Thanks Jon. #realtor4life
Our family has been through what can only be described as a real estate odyssey in the last few years, and we cannot thank Jon Christopher and his team at Christopher Real Estate Services enough for guiding us home. Many realtors can provide a positive purchase experience when things are straightforward; it takes an exceptional professional with an outstanding commitment to service to handle the most complex and difficult situations, and unfortunately our journey home has been the latter. We looked at many potential options and Jon walked us through each one, answering all of our questions and providing thoughtful, helpful feedback. Thanks to Jon’s unparalleled knowledge of both the real estate market and quality construction, we were able to avoid two potentially disastrous home purchases. We ultimately settled on building a new home in early spring of 2017, with a projected settlement in late summer 2017, shortly after the birth of our twins. However, the construction process proved to be fraught with extensive delays and setbacks that lasted over a year, which resulted in a great deal of stress for our family. Through it all, Jon was our constant advocate and advisor, adhering to the highest standards of practice and promoting ongoing, transparent communication despite a lack of reciprocation from other professionals involved in our process.
While we waited for our home to be built, Jon also represented us in the sale of our former home. His professionalism, dedication, and deep analysis of the market and trends allowed us to sell our home at our asking price in less than two weeks. The sale was a seamless, stress-free process thanks to Jon, Mary, and the team at Christopher Real Estate Services.
Although we finally settled and moved into our long awaited home in August 2018, our journey is not quite finished, as we wait for the completion of several items. Even though our purchase is completed, Jon continues to be a resource and support for our family, checking in for updates on progress, to see how we are doing, and graciously answering our questions. Simply put, Jon Christopher is the embodiment of all that is good in the field of real estate (and humanity at large, for that matter), and he and his team have been the sole bright spot in an otherwise nightmarish process. If you are looking for the best, look no further.
We would absolutely recommend Jon for anyone buying a home! He is responsive, honest, and used to work in construction/flip houses, so when we would go see homes, he could point out structural, electrical, and plumbing concerns or positives that we wouldn’t have known on our own. Our budget was on the smaller side, but we never felt like the commission he would make on our sale ever factored into the level of service or commitment. We cannot recommend him enough. Throughout the home buying process, we came across a realtor (the listing agent of a home we were under contact on) who was the defining example of all the horrible things a real estate agent can be and how much more stressful it makes the process. Ultimately, that contract fell through, and Jon helped us remain positive – and we found and purchased our dream home!
We just bought our first home and couldn’t be happier! We had a long search (over a year!) but Jon Christopher patiently searched with us to find our dream home. Jon has a lot of experience with home renovations and was able to provide guidance about the quality of each house that we toured. He is honest and voiced concerns, if he had them, about a house and why. As first-time home buyers we really appreciated the honesty since we know most other realtors try to sell the first house they show you. Jon was organized and professional throughout our negotiation and contract process. He always made himself available to answer questions and responded promptly to our emails. Even now that we’re homeowners we’ve been in touch with Jon for his advice on contractors and he’s been helpful. We’d recommend Jon to our friends looking for houses in the area.
We hired Jon for a very complicated short sale as he has a reputation as THE BEST when it comes to short sales. He led us through the process and fought for us.
To get that home – we had to sell our house. It turned out to be also a complicated sale (not Jon’s fault) but once we found a buyer – it was handled so smoothly. Jon tracks all steps that we needed to go through which helped us feel more prepared for the process.
He was always very level-headed and ethical – and I think he is truly a professional. He works in a similar way that we work – in that he keeps the end in mind and treats people with respect and honors her promises.
We thank him for his help with selling our home so quickly and professionally.
I was a first time home buyer and I loved working with Jon. He helped me buy a great house in South Philly, navigate the process for the first time and get through a settlement that required last minute negotiation when the seller didn’t come through on repairs he was supposed to have done. Jon was on top of every detail, honest and helpful and I’d recommend him to any of my friends.
