In Bergen County village of Ridgewood, for instance, the median sale price [in Ridgewood] rose 8.7 percent"
We cannot possibly give enough kudos to Chris Gubb! We have just closed on our 9th home in 35 years of marriage and this is the first time we have had the pleasure of Chris' expertise. From the very first phone call to her, she has been fabulous. Chris is bright, articulate, organized, thorough, and highly efficient without being pushy. She always made time to answer questions, show us a property, and forward us additional information that we didn't even ask for. She is great at pointing out positive features of the home and projecting ahead with some great ideas for use of space and decorating. After working with Chris for awhile, she called and told us that we should look at this house in Mahwah even though it was not necessarily on our list of towns. She kenw us well enough to know that this charmer was perfect for us! Several days later we went into contract which was painless with Chris at the helm. Again, she went over and above what most realtors do. As if that is not enough, Chris' personality is sweet, funny and kind to all. She is the total package!

We first met Chris at an Open House, months before we began looking seriously. Chris stayed in touch with us and over that time would send us new or interesting listings. She was persistent but never pushy. Rather she took that time to solicit our feedback on listings so she could have a very thorough sense of our priorities. When it came time for us to get serious Chris provided valuable context for each listing. She would detail pros/cons that might not be obvious from the narrative or pictures, things that only someone with decades of experience and a town resident would know. She was always professional and respectful, both to us and the other people we dealt with during the purchase process. Even now that we are happily settled into our home, Chris continues to be a valuable resource, providing us with names of contractors, restaurants and doctors. We recommend her without hesitation.

Chris is an exceptional agent. She advised us on the purchase of new home. She is the local expert in Ridgewood, with detailed knowledge of all the streets and neighborhoods and the advantages and disadvantages of each. She was very caring, friendly and professional throughout and responded to our (many!) emails and questions promptly. We saw our house just after a massive storm cut off power in Ridgewood for several days. During that period, Chris worked out of the local Starbucks, and guided us through the negotiations. I do believe that she was responsible for securing our new home at a very fair price. We were delighted to be working with her and are looking forward excitedly to move to our new house. We strongly recommend her services and she would be our first choice as agent if we move again.
Indira and Rajesh
We had a wonderful experience with working with Chris. She is by far the best agent we had ever worked with. She is friendly, dedicated, and knowledgeable of the properties in the Northern Jersey area. Not only did she find us the perfect house, she went far and beyond to make our closing as smooth as possible. Months after we purchased our house, she even helped research local nursery schools in the area for our daughter! I would highly recommend Chris!
Peggy and Rex
We had the pleasure of working with Chris to find and purchase our first home. She was incredibly helpful in teaching us ins-and-outs of Ridgewood because she is a real expert on its community. Additionally, Chris’s friendly nature and her no-pressure attitude made her a joy to work with. When it looked like we were going to lose our dream home to a higher bidder, Chris got incredibly creative and didn’t give up… winning us our beautiful home. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a home.
Michael and Patty
Gail and I would like to thank you for a job very well done. The virtual tour of our home that you produced was fantastic. Your communication skills were excellent and most importantly we sold our home so very quickly.
Gail and Barry
As first time homebuyers, the process can be overwhelming and scary. Chris was with us every step of the way and we never felt alone. Anytime we had a question she helped us right away. Her knowledge of Northern New Jersey was a valuable asset in determining locations to search in and what best suited our needs, not just what houses were for sale. She is extremely informed, personable, and proactive. Chris definitely puts her clients first and does everything to ensure as smooth a process as possible. We highly recommend Chris to anyone buying or selling a home!
J and A
When we first met Chris at an open house, we were very clear we were in the beginning stages of shopping. This did not stop her from sending open house announcements, new homes for sale, ones that had sold, local property reports with tax evaluations and she even sent us info on a local events and festivals.
We often received homes before they were on the internet alerting us they would be available to see soon.She found us the perfect home guiding us through some complicated negotiations and addressing our numerous questions many times before we even asked them.
This was not our first home but our final one. We could not be more thrilled with Chris’s patience in our initial stages and then superior service and attention to detail throughout the entire process once she found our beautiful home. Thank you Chris!

Chrisl...........just a few words to let you know how much I appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. You always were more than pleasant to work with and whenever I had a need you filled it. I can't even recall how many times I called you to help me out in my pursuit of a new home and you were always ready with a kind and supportive word. You are an exceptional agent, always had my best interests at heart and spoke honestly with me about our dealings. Your skills and knowledge of areas, neighborhoods, municipal systems and people speaks to your successful business. It was a wonderful experience and thank you so much for finding me the perfect home.
