"Chris has exceptional drive and energy. He had vision about who the buyers would be and how to market to them. He also put his back into getting ready. We had a tight timeline and Chris moved stuff out for me on a couple of occasions despite his busy schedule. I found him through my landscaper, who is himself excellent. He has worked with Chris for over 15 years and could not recommend him highly enough."
