Client Stories

“We’d heard that buying a house was an incredibly stressful process, but I have to say, we have no experience of it.”

“Chris was incredible! He is very knowledgeable about Marin – incredibly focused, committed, and passionate about his job. He found us a house that we absolutely love in less than a month. From listening to our long list of requirements and understanding our budgets to showing us many houses, each of which met our exacting requirements, to taking charge of the closing process, down to every small detail, Chris made sure that my husband and I remained informed and in control while having to do almost no work at all. As first-time home buyers, we could not have asked for a better guide than Chris, without whom we would never have found as marvelous a home as the one we now own. Our Volleyball connection helps a lot...  Now that we are done with the process of home buying, hoping we can find time to play.”

“Chris was my real estate agent on a condo I just purchased in Sausalito. If it weren’t for him, I would literally not have been able to get the condo. Although I was initially the 3rd best offer out of 5, we were able to win the bid using some clever negotiating tactics. Additionally, I was able to close in less than 30 days fully funded due to his diligence in helping me through paperwork and with the nuances of buying a new place. Thanks Chris!”

“My experience with Chris was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking to downsize to a smaller home in a very limited geographical area. Chris worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted.  He would always show up on short notice while taking us to see potential homes. It was his local area knowledge & networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. We simply could not have done this without him. I have been watching the online sites since our offer was accepted, and there has still not been another home like the one Chris found!”

“We were referred to Chris by our friend who had also worked with him to purchase a home (Santa Barbara's ex-pat), and we were so glad that we accepted this referral. Chris was wonderful to work with. We were living in a different town then, and he was very accommodating to our schedule and responsive on email, phone, and text. He is knowledgeable about the market and steered us towards areas with high resale value. We always felt that he was our advocate through the process and ensured that we had a smooth home-buying experience. We highly recommend his services to those looking to buy a home!”

“I'd been contemplating putting my house on the market for two years... A couple of words to describe Chris: patient, persistent, understanding, firm negotiator, aggressive, professional. Chris helped me develop a strategy for the sale of my home over these two years and gave me time to get fully ready to sell while being sure I was making the right decision. Chris Glave's Team advised me on the minimum things that needed to be done to my home to make sure we launched superbly on the market. Once the home was painted, slightly re-staged, and landscaping was ready, Chris executed a flawless launch on the market.”

“The forward-thinking marketing he did pre-market and at launch was fantastic! Chris negotiated a record-high offer. Chris made kept the escrow process very smooth and protected my interests all the way through closing day. He maintained firmness during the next negotiating stage of inspections and requests for repairs by the buyer. And even though there may have been room to award credits, Chris convinced the buyer to withdraw his request for credits, and my net remained untouched. This team will protect your equity once they secure an offer like no other will. I highly recommend  Chris to sell your home!!”
