“Chris is the best! He is well-knowledgeable in this field, and he keeps you informed as well. And most importantly, he is easy to get along with, and always carry a positive attitude. We would not have achieved our goals without his proper guidance. We are so thankful!”
Myra and Antonio, Ashburn, VA (Buyer)
“When we had started looking for house, we weren't really sure how significant difference will have having an agent or trying to buy with out an agent. We were thinking having an agent is like making ourselves exposed to be pushed and may end up buying a house we don't like since we thought they may tend to close the deal than be patient and let us decide when we got the house we really like. buying without an agent might even help you to save a little money. However, after started working with Chris, we really realized it's worth it to have a professional agent like Chris in many ways and finally to be able to buy the house you like with his good negotiation skills as well as in his knowledge how to handle an offer accordingly. The processes might seem easy even after you got the house you like but all might went wrong if you don't have an agent who knows what to do accordingly and Chris is that person. Beside, he is genuine, respectful, dependable and knowledgeable. In short, he has all the good qualities you think of your agent would like to have. I really strongly recommend you to have him as your agent and you will definitely be happy with his professional service. ”
Hiwot Degu, Olney MD (Buyer)
“My wife and I were not the easiest clients. We came in with only general ideas of what we were looking for – and where we wanted to find it. But Chris was incredibly patient with us. We never felt the sighted hint of pressure or urgency on his part. And despite being one of the busier agents in the DC / VA / MD area, Chris was almost always willing and able to accommodate our schedule – including on weekends and often with short notice. Chris is also super knowledgeable about both the market and the home-buying process. He was as much a teacher and counselor as an agent. Last (and not least), Chris is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. He was a pleasure to work with – and was great with our kids, too. We found a home we truly love, and we’re so thankful to Chris for helping us find it!”
Stephen & Kelly Barry – Oakton, VA (Buyer)
“Chris Sanders provided excellent guidance to my husband and me during the home purchasing process. Since we first met Chris, he worked diligently with us to understand what we were looking for in a new home. He knows the DC metro region very well, and was able to recommend specific neighborhoods that fit our home-buying criteria. He was incredibly patient with us as we toured SO MANY homes before we were ready to make an offer and was always responsive to emails, calls, and texts. We really appreciated Chris's assessments of the pros and cons of each property. When it came time to make an offer, he amassed as much information as possible about comparable homes to prepare a strong offer that was protective of our interests as buyers but also served the needs of the sellers (who were looking for a longer close period). Everything about the home buying process went smoothly, and we are incredibly excited to move into our new home. We cannot speak highly enough of Chris, and we will happily recommend him to our friends for their real estate needs.”
Jeremy, Michelle, and Augie Cline--Oakton, VA (Buyer)
“We've worked with other realtors before and Chris Sanders by far is the best. Chris worked within our short timelines to help get our condo ready, listed and sold. Chris developed beautiful print materials and listened to our feedback. Chris even performed well under pressure when the AC went out during one of the open houses! Chris helped us to get asking for our condo. We were very proud that this was the second highest selling for condos in our building. Chris handled the negotiations and kept our best interests in mind. All went well with closing. Chris helped to line up everything to time the closing of the condo with the closing for our new house. He was available all along the way to answer questions and take our phone calls. We would recommend Chris to our family and friends.”
Brian and Sarah Lantz, Arlington (Seller)
“Chris is very knowledgeable, personable and professional. Whether searching for properties, negotiating a contract and helping me through inspections Chris always had my best interest in mind. Chris is super flexible and adapted his schedule to fit mine on numerous occasions. Chris is always responsive even after "regular business hours" which gave me peace of mind when I had questions. I would highly recommend Chris Sanders to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the DC/VA area . ”
Aimee M. Cooper, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Best agent I have ever worked with, mostly because of his professionalism, knowledge of the area, and understanding of our needs. I highly reommend him. ”
Sue Ellen Wilson, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“I was a very uninformed first time home buyer and Chris was exceedingly patient and helpful during the whole process. Would highly recommend him to any one looking to buy in the DC area. ”
Jing Jing Zhang, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Chris is a professional in the true sense of the word. He always keeps a level head despite the hiccups that naturally occur in every home closing process. I trust his judgment, and his ability to navigate the sale of a home from initial listing all the way through closing. I've now bought or sold three properties with Chris, and I expect there will be more in the future.”
Ross Dannenberg, Washington, DC (Seller)
“Chris has been the most excellent and supportive agent we could have asked for. As an agent Chris embodies knowledge; diligence; patience; and always ensures timeliness in all actions related to the transaction. We have relied on Chris many times before and this time was no different. He never fails to impress! In fact, our main reasons for working with Century 21 Redwood Realty was Chris. I have also recommended Chris to my friend who just purchased her first property with Chris's help and she is as impressed as we are. Aside from his qualities as an agent, Chris is simply a pleasure to work with as a person, always polite, cheerful, and considerate of his client's requests and needs. Chris's naturally cheerful personality has always put my family and I on ease and we feel extremely comfortable in approaching Chris with any questions and concerns regarding our real estate needs. He has continuously advised us on important issues since 2008. Thanks Chris!!!”
S. Ahmed, VA (Seller)
“With other family members, I purchased a condo in Alexandria. Our agent, Christopher Sanders, set out to meet our targeted needs, patiently keeping us abreast of developments in the market and taking us to viewings until we found something right. He calmly helped us negotiate a tricky bidding process, and settled our nerves during the ordeal that leads to closing. Without hesitation, I would recommend him to anyone looking for real estate in the DC metropolitan area.”
Christine Cardellino, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“Chris is tremendous asset as a realtor and the type of person you want in your corner. He is very knowledgeable about how to best position the property for sale and a gifted negotiator. Our home sold within 2 days of listing (and before an open house). Within 2 days we had received 4 offers, which Chris deftly negotiated. Chris is also easy to work with and generally a good person to be around. He is a warm individual who connected with our child easily. He was incredibly patient and would respond to our numerous questions quickly and without any hint of annoyance. I have only positive things to say about him and would recommend him without reservation. ”
Jeremy - Alexandria, VA (Seller)
“This is the third time we have worked with Chris and could not be more positive about the experience. Chris just gets everything right, fast and with great results. Very highly recommended!”
Lubomira Paclikova, Washington DC (Seller)
“We really enjoyed working with Chris. This was our first home sale and Chris was knowledgable, timely, and patient throughout the process. He was a real pleasure to work with.”
Joe Budway Falls Church, VA (Seller)
“We've worked with other realtors before and Chris Sanders by far is the best. He was proactive in our home search and very hands on. Chris would check out houses that we saw on our own and offer us his feedback. He was able to view a house through a critical lens and offer advice as many are looking at the home's aesthetics and can forget about the bones. Chris helped us to find the perfect home for our family and craft our offer. He is available at all times to answer questions and provide advice. Chris is there through every steps along the way. ”
Brian and Sarah Lantz, Arlington (Buyer)
“Chris has a great eye for what works and what doesn't work in a home. He is an excellent realtor, and we are thrilled we found him!”
Anonymous, Washington, D.C. (Buyer)
“Chris helped us feel comfortable through the stressful process of buying our first home! He was great and we are so thankful to have found someone so knowledgeable and experienced, particularly as he helped guide negotiations. We felt like he was in our corner every step along the way which his exactly what we were looking for!”
Lennie Chaisson (Buyer)
“We've had positive experiences with Chris since we purchased our previous home and recommend him to others, hands down. He has unparalleled experience, knows the market and key drivers, and is an absolute joy to work with. I will recommend Chris to family and friends so that they can have a seamless experience like we did. Chris priced the property right based on market intelligence and kept us in the loop throughout. Very satisfied with the experience, especially considering I spent considerable time out of the country as it progressed. Positive throughout. ”
Martina Fongyen, Darnestown (Seller)
“We could go on and on about how amazing our experience working with Chris Sanders was--but suffice it to say that he made our first home purchase easier, and more enjoyable, than we thought possible. Beyond the fact that Chris knows his stuff, and was incredibly helpful in every professional aspect of the home purchase, he's a great person and we genuinely enjoyed our time working with him! Chris always conveyed confidence, which reassured us during the potentially stressful proceedings. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the process (from structuring offers to financing to inspections and future home improvements). Chris was beyond excellent, but most especially in patience and timely communication. Given that we are first-time home buyers it was very helpful to have Chris answer our (many) questions with a very quick turnaround.”
Jeanine & Adam, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Chris worked with us for the better part of two years to help us find the house that was perfect for our family. We're particularly grateful for his professionalism, responsiveness and keen knowledge of the market and best practices for negotiating!”
Geoff, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“Chris's easy-going personality and extensive knowledge of the market put us at ease during our home search. He also had a lot of helpful insights about ways to renovate or improve properties and the costs associated with renovations. Chris never tried to push his opinion on us or push us into buying anything; he let us reach our own conclusions, but gave us his thoughts whenever we asked. When we decided to make an offer, Chris's analysis of the comps was spot-on. We weren't initially the top offer, but Chris's negotiating skills helped us to get the house anyway. We had a quick closing and he made sure that everything was taken care of on time. Chris was a calming presence during what could have easily become a very overwhelming home-buying process. He was fun to work with and we would definitely recommend him.”
Jaimee & Sarah, Washington DC (Buyer)
“We could not be happier with Chris and with our new home. He walked us through the entire process at a speed that worked for us. Given that this was our first home, we had a great deal of questions to all of which Chris was able to provide immediate and understandable answers. Moreover, there were many times we didn't know what we didn't know, and Chris anticipated this. His help and expertise made us feel more empowered as home buyers and more secure in making such a large commitment. Chris was very successful in the price negotiation, and we are extremely grateful for his guidance here. Between the success in finding a house quickly that "checked all our boxes," the ability to negotiate the price down substantially, and his knowledgeable, affable, and tenacious demeanor, Chris could not be a better example for the profession or a greater help to us as clients. We hold him in high regard and give him our highest and most enthusiastic recommendation.”
Paul, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Chris Sanders knows DC very well. He understands my needs, searches for opportunities, filters them down to those matching my needs and then shows them. We need make a final decision together. Always polite, pleasant, and friendly. ”
Hani Khoja (Buyer)
“We always value good relationship with others especially with someone we interact or deal with on a regular basis. My husband and I are so thankful that Chris has all the good qualities as a person that it was not difficult to build that rapport with him right from our first meeting. We felt comfortable in expressing our desires and goals in selling the house; he understood it, and he did not hesitate to help us.”
Myra and Antonio Gajo, Ashburn Va (Seller)
“Chris Sanders is a great agent. I really trust his advice and knowledge of the market. He is a good listener and understands the needs and priorities of his clients. He really cares about his clients. He is approachable and always found a way to fit me in his busy schedule.This is the second home I have bought with his help. I strongly recommend him!!! In fact, I have already recommended him to several friends of mine who have already bought their home with his assistance.”
Paolo, Washington, DC (Buyer)
