Sold!

A
“My husband and I decided to sell our house and buy another house, and we could not be more pleased with the amount of time, effort and care that Chris and Eileen took to accomplish this goal. Selling and buying a house at the same time can be very tricky, and they navigated the whole process in a  way that made us feel extremely comfortable and confident every step of the way. It all began with the preparation of our house to sell. We were able to use the Compass Concierge program to pay to remodel both bathrooms in the house as well as convert an unused room into a 4th bedroom. By completing these upgrades, we were able to sell our house for significantly more money than we would have gotten had we simply cleaned the house and put it on the market. In addition, they helped stage the house and got it ready to show in a way that really made the house shine. All of these efforts rewarded us with 4 strong offers within the first week of putting the house on the market. They have a system and the system definitely worked. We were able to secure an offer from a great family that also gave us a ton of flexibility in our search and purchase of our new home. In regards to finding our new home, Chris and Eileen were really on top of their game. They helped us really focus on what we were looking for and were communicating daily with possibilities, including getting us into several houses that were not even on the market. If you’re looking for a genuine couple that is going to treat the sale of your house or the purchase of your new house as if it were their own, then this is the team!”

“I bought my first condo through Chris back in October 2019. He was great communicating the whole process with me and making sure to always keep me in the loop with everything and was very responsive with emails and phone calls. He was very dedicated in making sure all of my questions were answered  and I felt very confident in my purchase because of his expertise. The entire process was great!”

“Chris represented us in the sale of our home. He was passionate, thorough, honest and sensitive.  I know that we’re spoiled after having worked with him.”

“Chris Hodge is 100% responsible for how happy I am with my new home in Tiburon.  From the beginning, they spent a great deal of time showing me the market in Marin.  As an east coast transplant, I am not very familiar to the area so I was very reluctant and afraid to make the wrong decision.  Their style was perfect for me because it is more about educating on the area they spent most of their lives rather than trying to just sell a house.  They remained extremely focused on what I was looking for.  By the time I settled on a house, I knew it was the right one for me.”

“We were in the market for our first home and were lucky to have gotten Chris as our agent. We chose a home that was a short sale even though we were a bit intimidated by the outline of the process we read online. Chris broke it down for us in an easier way for us to understand and made us feel a lot more confident through that process. Problem came up from our finance end and threatened to squash the deal but Chris was right on top of keeping the deal afloat. I can’t stress enough the amount of attention and energy Chris puts into each deal. He will definitely be our go to guy for any future home purchases or sales.”

“We are so excited to finally be home owners and could not have wished for a better experience than working with Chris Hodge. As first time home buyers, my husband and I had lots of questions.  And we also had lots of demands! Chris was so patient with us and never made us feel like a burden. He really went above and beyond…recommending vendors for repairs, accommodating our schedules, answered tons of emails, calls and texts. We really felt like we had a partner looking out for us through the whole process. Even in this crazy and difficult market we ended up with our dream home and I know we couldn’t have done it without Chris! Thank you!”

“Chris was absolutely wonderful to work with and I cannot say enough good things. So responsive (even to my crazy requests) and did such an incredible job. It was really a pleasure working with him and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home. The process could not have been any smoother. Thank you, Chris!! You’re awesome!!”

“I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone who asked. My husband and I had some challenging circumstances which made our home-buying process a little tricky. Chris was there for us every step of the way with guidance and support. While I would imagine that many agents may have given up on us or left us to flounder on our own, he was “on it” when it came to dealing with the horrible lender we had to use (which was strictly due to our personal “challenging circumstances” and in no way related to Chris). While our lender kept failing us, Chris was able to keep the seller “on-board” while we got our loan in order. If it weren’t for Chris, we may not have made it through the process. Beyond that, he was always available to show us any house we asked to see and was VERY responsive to email, phone calls, and texts. Thanks, Chris!”

“Once we found the house, Chris’ research made all the difference.  I’ve heard so many horror stories about what happens when buying a home.  Chris handled everything and made my life extremely easy.  He made the purchasing process seem painless.  Most of the issues were solved by the time I even knew about them.  If it wasn’t for his extra effort, I am sure I wouldn’t be this happy.”

“My husband and I were looking to buy our first home at the beginning of this year. We were living in San Francisco at the time and trying to find something within our price range in Novato. During our first consultation, Chris put us at ease and he really listened to what we wanted. He answered all the questions first time home buyers have (which was a lot of questions) and told us what to expect when buying our first home.  He was quickly able to find properties that fit our budget and met our criteria.  He worked around our schedule, showing us homes on workday evenings and also on the weekends. Within a couple months Chris had found us an amazing house – but it was a short sale. My husband and I were worried since we had heard about the difficulties that go along with short sales. I like that Chris showed us the pros and cons of buying a short sale, never swaying us in one direction or the other – he just stated the facts and let us decide for ourselves.  His knowledge and honesty made us feel very comfortable, and we decided to go ahead and put in an offer. From the very beginning, he made it clear that it could take weeks, or even months to close on the deal. To save time, he set us up on DocuSign and we were able to sign all the documents electronically; he would call us on the phone and go over the paperwork with us making sure that we understood exactly what we were signing. Along the way, we ran into problems with the appraiser and the seller’s bank. Chris skillfully navigated through these set backs and actually got us the house for LESS than we had offered. Amazing. We could not be more impressed. He was organized, efficient, and got us what we wanted. Overall, Chris Hodge was a pleasure to work with  and we definitely recommend him as a real estate agent. Thank you, Chris!”

“I recently purchased my first home and used Chris Hodge as my agent.  It turned out to be a great choice!  I know I am not the easiest person to deal with, as I am very demanding.  I ask frequent questions (probably usually not even relevant) and expect answers to all of them, which he would always get to me in a timely manner.  Rather than just try and rush me through the process which probably would have been easier for him to do, he listened and really applied every little thing I said to him and found me a great home that matched exactly what I was looking for.   The whole process took about 7 months and I want to say I asked him to look at near 100 places before I found the right one, and never once did he make me feel as though I was a burden or wasting his time looking at place after place with no intent to buy them, until I found my place.  Chris was always available to show me a new place (or go back to an old one he had shown me before), he always had somewhere new to see and/or was constantly asking questions and getting ideas to make sure my home was not just going to make me happy but be the perfect fit.  For all of your help, I owe you a big thank you Chris, it was and is greatly appreciated.”

“This was our first time buying a home and I can’t say enough about how Chris made the process as seamless and stress-free as possible.  We contacted him a few months back and within a week he was showing us homes.  That same week we fell in love with a house in our price range and the neighborhood we wanted.  The house was bank owned which meant that there was very tight time lines to make an offer, to complete inspections, and to close escrow.  Chris’s diligence and expertise was the main reason we were able to meet all the deadlines.   One of the hardest parts was choosing an amount for the initial offer.  Chris provided us all the information and advice we needed to make this decision.  From making the initial offer to signing the final paperwork, he offered advice and was incredibly supportive.  This was very important to us as first time home buyers who were new to the process.   Chris was available at all hours of the day for questions, and called frequently to check in and see how we were feeling.  He would send me updates frequently of what other houses were selling for in the neighborhood to help us remain confident in our decision.  His honesty and dedication made it possible for us to buy our dream home. Chris Hodge was simply a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market to buy a new home.”
