Testimonials for Harrison & Christi Long, Explore Group
What do people say about Harrison & Christi, their qualifications and service as Realtor agents? Here are some of their notes of appreciation and recommendation.
"If you are looking for the right real estate broker to find you the right property and get you the best deal, consider Harrison Long.
I needed to find a property to start my medical spa this year. Harrison was knowledgeable, ethical, and hard working on behalf of me for the six plus months until I got my key to the property.
I have been practicing in the medical spa where everyone tells me it is the best area and loves the atmosphere of the office. If you need further information concerning Harrison or his real estate practice I am happy to talk to you." - Dr. Laura Cho - Irvine, CA - December 2012
Dear Christi and Harrison, I would like to thank you for an extremely positive home buying experience. From the initial evaluation of locations, price range, size etc. through viewings and preparing offers to the day of closure the two of you have been very professional, thurel and efficient. It was obvious that you cared a great deal about finding the right home for me and there wasn't a moment I had to worry about the process. You communicated well, explained things clearly, gave good advice, presented options and kept things moving. I am very happy in my new home and should I be in the market again someday I wouldn't think twice to use your services again.
We could not possibly have succeeded to this point in our relocation plans without your tireless efforts and counsel - Thank YOU! Your pricing and marketing strategies to sell our Tustin home quickly resulted in multiple offers and an eventual sale price significantly above identical "comps", truly living up to your company's mission statement of "Selling Your Home at the Best Price in the Shortest Possible Time". Your patience, suggestions, and attention to detail during the entire process of selling our house reduced the stress on our family especially since Gary was in Texas for most of the time dealing with a family health issue and frequent job travels. Despite the distance, Harrison's excellent communication and negotiating skills kept offers and counter-offers actively going. We are also appreciative of the counsel you have provided us in leasing our temporary home in Dove Canyon. Your attention to details and knowledge of landlord-tenant contractual issues led us to the selection of the right house. We have very much enjoyed working with you both and look forward to your continued support and counsel in our next step - finding that dream home! Christi's energy, patience, and adherence to the Realtor Code of Ethics in touring homes-for-sale, are very much appreciated. Not only does she always have essential property information and sales data on hand, but has her tape measure handy to check bonus room dimensions for Gary's pool table. Christi is always helpful to remind us when we've forgotten to check on a particular feature during property previews and offers excellent ideas to overcome perceived shortcomings on any particular candidate home. We really have lots of fun touring with her in looking for that perfect home. We know and trust that, with both your help, we will find and successfully negotiate the purchase of our dream home in the next couple of months. Gary and Cindy Kratochvil
WOW! What can we say? Harrison & Christi sold our home the first week we were on the market for FULL price and an all cash offer in one of the most challenging of markets for sellers. Beside that they provide the ultimate in customer service in an extremely professional manner. No this isn't a paid ad; we are just thrilled with all they did for us. Lon & Shari Adams - Irvine, California
Harrison and Christi are great people to work with. They listened to my needs and wants, showed me a variety of properties and guided me through the process of buying a home for the first time. Their attention to detail made the process go smoothly and really helped put my mind at ease. Even after the close of escrow, they worked tirelessly to resolve an issue with the sellers of the property regarding a credit that was owed to me. And they've followed up to just make sure that I'm happy in my new home - I AM!! Harrison and Christi are honest, trustworthy and professional. I would highly recommend working with them! - Mary Clements, 2009
