Name: Kristen and Scott Byers
What made you choose Chris as your real estate attorney?:
Before buying our first house, we participated in a new homebuyers' seminar. Chris explained the role of the real estate attorney, and at that point we believed he was someone we could work with.
How impressed were you with the speed of the buying process?:
We have dealt with Chris' office on three closings. I think the best thing we have to say about them is that of all three closings, they were always prepared to close earlier than we were. By the time we had inspections, remedies, and mortgage approvals, Chris' team was always ready.
What was the best thing Chris did to help you buy your home?:
We always appreciated how Chris' Office let us know what we needed to do next in the buying process without being too pushy. If we felt we had other things we needed to square away first, they just made sure we knew what we needed to do and followed up in a few days. During one of our closings we had a lot of home repairs to do and that needed to take priority. Chris' team worked with us and had all the paperwork ready.
How was Chris able to help you overcome any challenges closing on your home?:
During the third closing where we worked with Chris, his team recommended we do two things: put in all the paperwork early, and avoid closing at the end of the month. Due to a variety of issues including home remedies to complete and two very young children, we didn't do either. But even though we submitted everything late (don't do what we did!) they still had everything set to close on time.
Would you recommend my real estate services to friends, family, neighbors or coworkers? What would you tell them?:
Absolutely, we already have!. We feel that Chris and team have a great balance between "easy going" and "telling it like it is". They are willing to tell you what you need to do when it's necessary, but also being accommodating when they can be.
How did you find Chris?:
We initially found Chris by attending a homebuyers' seminar.
How did you feel throughout the whole buying process?:
During our first closing with Chris' team, I felt that they always understood the status of our sale and was comfortable that they were going to have everything ready for us. During second and third sale,I was very confident that they knew what they were doing, and at any point I understood what they needed from me.
Is there anything notable you would like to mention about working with Chris?:
Although I don't recommend bringing children to closings, their team was very accommodating (especially Chris) to bringing our children along and letting them color and play in the office during the closing. It was such a help!
Are they any last comments you would like to add?:
Chris also gave us some nice swag to take home. Chris, when our daughter colors pictures she frequently asks for one of the pens you gave us at the end. She loves to use it to sign her name at the bottom!
