We never felt rushed or intimidated. He was always available to answer our questions or to go see a place. Knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely caring, this is who you want on your side when buying a home!!
In addition to his great customer service, he helped us navigate through a very challenging/competitive market, and ultimately we found what we were looking for less than we expected to pay. In addition, he was extremely patient, understanding, and flexible with us through the whole process of our changing budget, decisions, and opinions of what we were even looking for.
Coming in as a first time home buyer we had a lot of information to try and process along the way. Although family and the internet were great resources to start out with, it would have been an extremely difficult journey without Chris' help throughout. He was amazingly patient, provided several insights for us to make educated decisions and was available whenever we needed him night or day. He made it a point to work with our schedule, which can shift around quite a bit, which made it that much easier for us. He definitely has a wealth of knowledge regarding the market and a genuine interest in making sure we walked away with what we wanted. I would highly recommend Chris as a realtor for both first time home buyers or otherwise. Thank you so much for everything!
Not only is he knowledgeable with Whatcom County and the surrounding areas, but Chris also operates with the utmost integrity and professionalism of any realtor you will come across. He found the perfect home for my wife and I. Chris guided us through the whole process and was wonderful. We found the perfect home and fit for us and could not be happier. I highly recommend Chris for all your home buying or selling needs.
Being new home buyers, of course, we were nervous, scared, asked way too many questions and doubted everything. Chris was there every. Single. Step. There is a saying out there that goes "if you want extraordinary results, you must put it an extraordinary effort" and let me tell you he did just that. Driving 30 minutes at 7 pm to show a house, or answer my phone calls that were always loaded with questions. Thank you, Chris Smithson, for all you did for us.
Saw exactly what we wanted and found it! I did the same for a family member as well. Smoothest home buy yet!
He was very objective, honest and professional. Our purchase was smooth, and escrow closed on time with no issues. Chris knows his stuff, great personality and remains calm under pressure. We are very happy to have found him. We now have a new friend and a person to call upon with any real estate questions.
Chris went above and beyond expectations. Chris answered every question, and if he did not have the answer, he found it. Thank you so much for helping my family get our house!
He found houses with the criteria I was looking for, within my price range, and was even very accommodating when I selected properties on the fringes of my needs, just so I could make sure I was getting the right house. When an offer was made on my target home, he acted quickly and guided me through the bidding process to ultimately submit a successful offer. All the way through closing, Chris was great. I highly recommend him.
I wasn't on the search very long, as I made an offer on the 4th house we saw and they accepted. From the time the offer was sent to the closing day, Chris kept constant communication. As a first time homeowner, I felt he took extra steps to ensure I knew what was going on at all times. He was there for inspection, appraisal and closing day. He worked on negotiations with the sellers and was great throughout the whole process. I would recommend Chris to anyone, but especially first-time buyers!
Working with him through the entire process of selling our home was smooth and flawless. He gave us honest, straight-forward answers when asked ... and if he felt we needed more input, he would talk with his colleges to get their help... and then get right back to us. Chris always made himself available, he ran detailed and professional Open Houses and always stayed optimistic about the outcome of our sale. Selling a home, especially one that you've lived in a long time can be stressful and emotional. It's great to have someone in your corner that can help keep you grounded and yet, will always work in your best interest. An outstanding individual ... I can without hesitation, strongly recommend Chris for any of your real estate needs!
The particular home that I picked came with some interesting challenges, which he helped and coached me through. He's really is an excellent agent and goes above and beyond to be sure that his clients are informed and that things are on track. I found him to be knowledgeable, trustworthy and diligent - just a great guy in general. I was fortunate to work with him on this purchase. Highly recommend.
He helped guide us to the perfect home for us and had a good understanding of our wants and needs. He connected us with a great loan team. He was friendly and fun to work with while being professional. He quickly got us in to see properties and allowed the necessary time to view properties. He was quick and efficient in responding to us and things needing to be done. He was accessible 7 days a week. He was patient, knowledgeable and thoroughly explained what we needed and wanted to know. He gave us great advice which led to a quickly accepted offer and closing. Thanks so much, Chris!
He spends the time to understand what your needs are and exceeds expectations. We are a retired couple and relocated from Auburn, WA to Bellingham, WA. Chris made our house search an adventure and found us the perfect home. What we found fits our needs and we could not be more pleased. Need a hands-on agent? Chris Smithson is your guy! We felt like we were his only client. What an amazing man he is!!!
He is very knowledgeable in the local real estate market, was always available to answer questions and quick to respond and or dig to research answers to our many questions through the process. He helped us secure a property as Canadians in the US market which certainly comes with some challenges.
His professionalism and responsiveness helped make our home search enjoyable. Attention to detail is very important to us, and Chris exceeded our standards. His honesty and knowledge of the industry ensured we will be return clients when the time comes.
Chris was very easy going and professional working with my girlfriend and I. He had a lot of patience for us and was determined to find exactly what we were looking for in a home. Chris also continually kept us motivated and reassured when finding a home. He is a very dedicated realtor and I can tell he loves working with people because he thrives on the payoff when helping clients purchase a home. I would absolutely recommend Chris to anyone in the market or soon to be.
