I met Chris accidentally when buying my first house. I run into his office to ask for a property while I found one in the meantime. He explained me what it takes to get a property in Kirkland at this time when multiple offers are normal and with him I was able in same day to get pre-approved for a loan and put an offer. Not many agents can act so fast. While we ended not getting that house I did buy a house later with Chris and worked with him along the process. I highly recommend Chris for the knowledge on the area, constructions, builders, connection with lenders etc etc.
