Client Experiences

"Chris Yore consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. We could not have been happier with his representation in selling our home. He was the best agent we've ever used and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

"Chris is the best agent you'll ever find! He represented us in the sale of our family's condominium and we couldn't be happier. He knew the market extremely well and gave us superb advice, always with a dose of humor. We also appreciated that he was super responsive whenever we had questions. We'd  use Chris again in an instant if we had any more property to sell (or buy)!"

"We moved to the area from out of state. Chris Yore was our Realtor and in addition to helping us find the right house, he was a source of knowledge of the whole area. His professionalism and flexibility with our tight schedules was greatly appreciated."
