REVIEWS

Chris Hollister is extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented, reliable and thorough. He made the process of finding our new house a good one by really listening to what we desired in a new home. He was also wonderful to work with in marketing and selling our old house. Chris knows how to deal with the unexpected, and we recommend Chris to anyone buying or selling. - Gene Fox & Julie Daniel-Fox

Throughout our home selling process, Chris Hollister exhibited a level of professionalism and competence that has been unequaled in our experience. His exceptional organizational skills and level of preparedness really put us at ease from the very start. With Chris’ guidance, we knew what to expect at every step and received clear recommendations on how to prepare our home for sale. Why hire a realtor if you are going to be burdened with all the detail? We can assure you that this will not be the case with Hollister Properties, as the level of individual attention he devotes to each client is really extraordinary. - Jim & Amy Sluss

We found out about Hollister Properties from our neighbors who had sold their home through them. We interviewed Chris Hollister and were very impressed with his analytical and thorough approach to marketing a home. He made suggestions and offered his educated opinions rather than dictated how we would sell our home. The same professionalism that was shown in the interview was in force throughout the listing agreement. Our home was shown regularly and it didn’t take long before the correct buyer was found. Chris continued to be our advocate at every step of the sale process. A few minor issues came up but Chris had prepared us for every one in advance. The only surprise was that a broker could offer this level of customer service to the seller of a mid-priced home. We bought and sold 4 homes during our years in Richmond. It seems like we experienced every possibility from agents during those sales and purchases. We regret that we didn’t meet Chris when we first moved here. Our endorsement of Chris Hollister and Hollister Properties is without reservation. - Sam & Lydia Andersen

Working with Chris Hollister took a lot of the stress out of buying our first home. We felt comfortable throughout the whole process. Chris was very upfront and honest and took the time to listen to exactly what it was we were looking for. He was always very patient and accommodating in our search, we never felt rushed into making a decision and he took the time to answer all our questions. - Christopher & Laura Johnson

We sold our existing home and purchased a new house with Chris Hollister’s guidance. Chris was a great mentor and partner to us throughout the process and readily accommodated our aggressive timetable. He is incredibly well-informed about the Richmond-area market as well as national trends in real estate. We found him to be proactive---always looking ahead for us---and also very responsive to our questions and ideas. He is creative, entrepreneurial, and a genuine pleasure with which to work. We would definitely collaborate with him again and have already recommended his services to friends and colleagues. Chris will always go the extra mile for his clients, for sure. - The Evans Family

We had the great pleasure to work with Chris Hollister, in our home search and purchase, during the spring of 2009. Chris was wonderful throughout the process. He listened to what we wanted and needed in our new home and then found homes that matched our criteria. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the Richmond area and for our purposes the West End. He was able to give us a great picture of the neighborhoods and surrounding areas so we could make informed decisions based on that information. He was accommodating of our schedules and his patience is never ending as he spent many weekends house hunting with us. Once we found our house he continued to support us in finding the best people to help us get to and through closing. Chris was always available to answer questions, make suggestions and listen to and allay our concerns. - Rob & Becca Kutz
