He and a team of classmates entered 2 state-wide business plan competitions and won first place in both.
“I have bought and sold numerous properties and have had the opportunity to work with many realtors; Chris Powell is head and shoulders above the rest. For an agent that will help you every step of the way and follow through on their commitments, look no further. Thank you Chris and I wish you and your team all the best!” – The Ivans
“Chris did an amazing job for us! He sold our house and helped us in the purchase of a new build. Building a house was way more work than I ever imagined. He helped us over the entire 6 month process. This was my 5th real estate transaction and I have come to learn that responsiveness is what I value the most in my realtor. Chris was extremely fast to get back to us with answers to our questions. I have had people in the past take days to respond but Chris was always available through calls, emails, and text messages. I couldn’t recommend him enough. Whether your buying or selling I would trust Chris to give honest advice that will help your transaction be a success.” – The Robison’s
“Chris is hands down the best agent we have worked with. We worked with him to both sell our old home and to buy a new one. He takes the time to research properties in the area (and not just the house we sold, also the new neighborhoods we were looking to buy in), which allowed him to give very accurate feedback about what was possible / available. This helped us make informed decisions (where other realators we have worked with couldn’t answer basic questions about a property or builder, Chris did his homework!). He makes himself available to answer questions and goes above and beyond for his clients, taking calls at odd times and doing showing with little notice. He has even helped us with a couple of minor issues after the closing, continuing to help coordinate with the seller/builder despite the fact that he is under no obligation. All this, and he also sold our house in less than 2 days (and if you watch his other sales, ours isn’t the only one he sold very quickly) above the price we expected to get for it. We highly recommend Chris, and have done so already to friends and family who are looking for an agent. You will not be sorry if you work with him. We certainly were not and hope we will be able to again.” – The Madison’s
“Chris will go above and beyond for the benefit of his client! He will give you 101% percent from start to finish! Thank you for all your help ( buying and selling) our house! He helped us sell our house in a very professional and effecient way He also helped up buying our second home and was very supportive from the day we made offer all the way until we moved in to our new home! He made sure everything we need was asnwered in a timely manner! Thank you Chris! Buying and Selling our home is much easier this time!” – The Grimmer’s
“Chris was very responsive and professional throughout the entire process of buying our home. He offered good advice for each step and made us feel comfortable and informed even though we were moving from another state and buying our first home.” – The Kirk’s
“Chris went out of his way to help us find a home in a very short amount of time. We moved here from out of state and had a limited time frame to find a home, and he worked so hard through those long days with us. If there was ever a question about the area that he didn’t know, he would get right back with us the next day with the information. He listened well to our preferences and did not try to sell us a home over our price range. He is very professional, hard working and enjoyable to be around. We completely trust Chris.” – The Smith’s
“As a transplant from Las Vegas, we tried several times unsuccessfully to find a good realtor online. Chris came recommended by name from s realtor in Vegas that my family and I went to church with. We did our research online and sent Chris a list of houses that we were looking at with features and in neighborhoods that we thought we might be interested in. When we came to Kennewick we where dissapointed in our selections, and Chris was ready with a stack of houses he thought we might like. He was endlessly patient with us since we were completely unfamiliar with the area and neighborhoods, and we loved the houses he picked. He gained our trust so much, that by the end of the day we asked him which house he thought was best for us. He told us his opinion, and we agreed. Seven months later, we couldn’t be happier with the choice we made. It didn’t have a basement like we originally thought we wanted, but as it turned out, the neighborhood was more important than that single feature. He wasn’t pushy, and gave us the time to process our surroundings. If you’re looking for a realtor that will listen to you, and provide his expert opinion based on what your needs are, Chris is the man for you. Never once did we feel like he was just trying to close the sale. His interest was to give us the best experience possible and for us to get the best house for our family. He’s an amazing man with integrity and I’d recommend him to my own family. Which it just so happens I did, when my dad was looking to buy property in the area, and again when my aunt was looking for a realtor for her friend who was looking for a retirement home in WA. I highly recommend his services.” – The Grisafe’s
“I extremely highly recommend Chris Powell. We had a very narrow set of specifications and a very limited budget with which to buy my parents a home. Not only was Chris able to find a house on the market that matched our exact needs, but he got us in to see the house as it immediately hit the market, gave us good recommendations concerning our offer and negotiation – helping us to beat out a competing offer in the nick of time. He also was able to give us a very fair and honest appraisal of the value of our current home, which we’d had trouble getting sold, which helped to lead us down a more correct path for our second home. Use Chris!” – The Strawn’s
“I wholeheartedly endorse Chris Powell as a real estate agent. He made himself available night and day during our home purchase dealings, which included while he was out of state during the Christmas season. He was able to keep us very well informed regarding each step of the home buying process and kept excellent communication as we went forward. He found us an excellent home at a very good price. We have dealt with many real estate agents over the course of our marriage (40 years); so far Chris has given us our best home buying experience over that time. My wife and I are extremely happy that Chris was our agent and plan to use him again if we decide to buy more property in the future.” – The Hernandez’s
