Testimonials

If anyone is looking to buy a home or sell their home I highly recommend Chris Shell. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to point out the good and bad things he sees in a house which I found really helpful. I cannot thank him enough for his patience while we tried to figure out what we wanted in a house. Once we found our home he was there to help us every step of the way and I honestly believe he had our best interests at heart. He truly was excited for us that we found our home. Chris is a great realtor and a great person! Theresa H
