Words From Our Clients
I can’t say enough good things about working with Jon and Christopher Real Estate. My husband and I actually met Jon at an open house he was hosting, and we were so impressed with how objective and informative he was, we chose him to be our buying agent, and are so happy with the decision! In the past we’ve worked with agents who seemed to push their own agenda, I didn’t have this experience with Jon at all. He was honest and I really felt like he was working for our best interest. Plus he was incredibly informative, and could walk into a house and tell us immediately if we would have any problems we would need to address if we purchased the home. We are now in our dream home at a price below our budget, and I know we wouldn’t have had such a great experience if it weren’t for Jon.
Buying a house can be tremendously scary, but if you have Jon Christopher as your realtor, all of those fears can be put to rest. I started looking at houses online, randomly contacting a realtor or two for some viewings, and going to open houses. Every other realtor that I met tried to be very pushy, and made me feel like they were just trying to get me into a house ASAP, just to get their cut. I was introduced to Jon because I had a deal in place with an individual who wanted to sell without a realtor, and I was nervous that I was going into that situation without full knowledge. The very first time I spoke with Jon, he helped me assess my current situation, and I decided to not purchase the original house. I then met with Jon in person a few days later, and he got to know me before even bringing up any house information. We went over what I was looking for, what my current timeframe was, and many other aspects. He was honest upfront that finding the perfect house can be a lot of hard work. From the online searches that Jon set up, we stayed in touch and I kept browsing to find the perfect house. From every place that we visited, Jon was able to use his expertise and experience to give me honest assessments on everything. When you’re viewing a house on your own, you may simply look at the rooms, amenities, and locations. However, Jon pays fine attention to detail and points out all the small nuances that you wouldn’t think to check. Just because a house looks shiny and new, doesn’t mean that it is, and Jon works to point out both the strengths and flaws of every property.
Once you find the perfect home, and you’re ready to make an offer, Jon turns the dial up even further, and acts quickly and efficiently. Through networking, Jon knows a lot of good individuals in other fields to assist you in the process. Jon won’t recommend someone that he doesn’t trust himself, so anyone else that you work with through Jon will give you the same sense of security. Jon is always available, and keeps you as up-to-date on the process as possible. When it came closer to settlement for myself personally, there was a slight snafu with something by the mortgage company. As it got closer and closer to settlement, Jon never sugarcoated anything, and always had backup plans, should anything have happened. Fortunately for myself, we were able to get everything aligned, and settlement went through as planned. During the settlement process (as well as the entire process), Jon goes through everything thoroughly and clearly.
No matter what, Jon was always available whenever I had questions, concerns, or just wanted his opinion on properties that may have popped up online. Even after moving into my new house, Jon has made himself always available for questions that come up as a first-time homeowner. Jon truly cares about all of his clients, and wants what is best for them, not for himself. Not only is Jon an amazing realtor, he’s just a truly great person. There is no doubt in my mind that without Jon as my realtor, I wouldn’t be in the amazing home that I am in right now.
I have bought and sold 10 times in my lifetime and Jon is by far and away the best realtor EVER! I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.
Jon was recommended to us by family members who had worked twice with him and were extremely satisfied. We were from out of state and unfamiliar with the area and Jon’s expertise and knowledge regarding everything from school districts to taxes was valuable. He offered suggestions of service providers in the area we could contact from tuning the piano to finishing the basement. His prior experience in construction helped us make informed decisions. He was always responsive to our questions and checked in frequently to make sure things were going well. He was our advocate and politely made sure our concerns were always addressed.
Jon is an award-winning real estate agent – well-versed in all aspects of the real estate business (buying, selling, developing, investing, etc.). However, I went with him because of trust – he came highly recommended and I could count on him to break down the structural elements of each and every house we looked at. As a first-time homebuyer, I cannot understate just reassuring this was. And as if Jon himself wasn’t enough, he also has an entire team working with him, that kept us all informed, on top of the process, and moving forward. A+
Working with Jon and his company was a wonderful experience!! We were looking to buy our first home and naturally we were nervous and new to the process. Jon took the time to answer all of our questions and concerns. We looked at over 25 houses and Jon never pressured us into buying a home that wasn’t a good fit. When we were ready to give up Jon was still going strong with a positive attitude. And soon after we found our dream home. We couldn’t be happier. Jon has a keen eye, very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell.
People kept telling us how much stressful work it would be buying our first house, which means they obviously didn’t work with Jon. From day one to closing he had us organized and clear on everything we needed and where our expectations should land. When we got into the thick of negotiations he had our backs. It was unsurprising to see how many of his clients become his friends – he is as warm and personable as he is professional and adept at realty. Given the chance I’d choose him to represent us again and again, and rest well knowing no other agent would have produced as successful of an outcome.
Jon worked wonders for my wife and I. We were going through a job relocation and Jon was able to help us coordinate the entire sale of our house from out of state! We cannot thank him enough for his expertise and guidance in getting us a fantastic offer on our house within 3 days! Couldn’t recommend Jon more.
