Testimonials for Chris & Karen Highland
Matt & Marissa Wood03/18/2015
Chris took us on as first time home buyers and was very patient answering our many questions about the process. He really listened to what we wanted in a home purchase and ultimately led us to the home of our dreams. His knowledge and expertise shown through in each phase of our purchase and we consider ourselves lucky to have stumbled upon him as our realtor. As seen on Zillow:
Local knowledge: 5 stars
Process expertise: 5 stars
Responsiveness: 5 stars
Negotiation skills: 5 stars
We at a great experience in dealing with Chris for our short sale. He explained in detail early on in the process what would be happening throughout the process and it pretty much followed his projections. We were kept well informed of the ongoing processes (of which there were many) and that was important due the the lengthy short sale process. I must state that after our first meeting with Chris he had our complete confidence and he did not let us down. I would highly recommend Chris for any of your Realtor needs. Google Review
I believe Christopher has a great vision for the future. Any real estate agent would benefit if they had the chance to meet Christopher.
Chris is a great innovator in the real estate industry and driven by results. I can count on one hand the number of people I have met in my career with the drive and professionalism Chris exhibits in everything he does. Not only do I consider him a business partner but a friend and trusted adviser when it comes to real estate.
Chris was pivotal in helping us through our short sale and for guiding my husband and I throughout the entire process. His support and expertise were stellar and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a top notch realtor.
Being a first time home buyer and a single mother was very stressful, but Chris helped me from beginning to end. When my "dream home" went up in smoke due to a short sale and the bank we had to deal with, he knew i had limited time to find something else and encouraged me to "look outside the box", which i agreed, and found a home i loved even more! He worked tirelessly to make this home work for my particular situation, he even let me cry on his shoulder when we were down to the deadline and i started freaking out! Being a single mother, i don't know much about home improvements and such, Chris was very knowledgeable in every aspect from home structure to fixtures. I would highly recommend and already have recommend Chris to friends and family.

“I highly recommend Chris Highland as a real estate agent. I have worked with Chris during the sale of a house and the purchase of a new one. He made some recommendations to me that enabled me to sell my house in 2 days. He showed us houses in a very timely manner that we were interested in, thus a purchase of a wonderful home. During this process, we had many questions and Chris was “there for us” every single time. I would email him a concern and he responded rapidly with answers that eased any concerns we have had. Chris is a very professional agent and is informative with his knowledge. I totally trusted Chris to make our house search an easy process.
