    Chris helped me buy a home with the Homes for Heroes program. This was our first home and we had some credit challenges but Chris stayed by our side and helped us find our perfect home. We closed last week and couldn't be happier with the patience, dedication, and easy going nature Chris had. He is very professional and knows A LOT about the home buying process, heck without him I would have had a nervous breakdown. I would, without hesitation recommend Chris as your next realtor someone who has YOUR needs taken care of.

    Chris was very informative, hard-working and accommodating. He kept us apprised of the homes status during the selling process and gave us good, supported advice that helped in the decision making of our homes selling price. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone needing or wanting to sell their home.

  • Chris helped me buy a home

      We were out-of-state home buyers looking for a home in the Queen Creek area. I contacted Chris Benson and felt very comfortable right away using him as our agent. He was very professional throughout the buying process, helped negotiate some nice amenities to our new home, and helped avert a potential closing delay at the very last minute. Chris is a great guy to work with and we would definitely use his services again.

    • Chris listed and sold my home

        Chris is one of the most hard working and professional real estate brokers that I have had the pleasure to work with

      • Chris helped me buy a home

          I actually put in an inquiry about Chris and he contacted me. I will be honest I was not the easiest person to get ahold of because of how many realtors called me after I put my number out there, but he called me a few times and I finally answered. Boy am I glad I did, I am currently writing this sitting in the living room of my beautiful house he helped me get. This was the first house i have ever purchased and he was very patient with me and all my questions. When I asked to see a house he set it up for me it was sweet. Chris was also very professional but personable, he was easy to talk to and did not make me feel like he was only there to sell me a house. It was nice to be able to have a professional relationship but still be able to talk about things besides homes. I never felt like he was trying to sell me on something I did not fully love. He was honest if he thought a house was not the best deal or a good fit. The icing on the cake is because I am a firefighter, and Chris participates in the Homes For Hero​​s Program, I received a little discount on my home purchase!! It was sweet and if for nothing else that alone is worth calling him to ask about!! I have already started telling all my friends about him and hope to send as much business as possible to him in the future! ​

            We were very pleased with Chris. He was always very quick to respond back to us if message left. He was great at following up with showings for any feedback. He was dedicated beyond our expectations. We moved from AZ to Wi. House sold within a week multiple offers. We have dealt with other realtors both in Wi. And Az. By far he outdid any others. Highly recommend Chris!

              We had a great experience working with Chris to sell our home and find a new home. He was always there to answer any questions we had and help guide us in the right direction. We recommend Chris to anyone we meet who is in the market to buy or sell a home.​

            • Chris listed and sold my home

                Chris helped get our property sold pretty quickly and for the price we were expecting. He gave us good ideas for preparing the property for sale and an update about when it was being shown. He was very pleasant and easy to talk with. He promptly responded to any of our questions. It was a good experience.

              • Chris helped me buy a home

                  Chris is great to work with. I don't consider him my agent. I consider him my friend. He went above and beyond. I'm not an easy person to work with and I'm very picky. Chris picked my home out knowing what I was looking for and I loved it. Great home buying experience

                • My experience with Chris was extremely positive ... it was the fastest transaction ... home was listed and in two weeks ... the proceeds were in my account ... top dollar ... were very pleased ... a true professional ... highly recommended !

                • Chris Benson is an outstanding realtor who is professional, caring, organized and attentive. I am so happy that I was referred to Chris' company. I had searched for months for a home and within one week, Chris and company had me with my perfect home. You'll never be disappointed in Chris Benson and the Next Home Alliance team.

                • Chris was exactly what I was looking for in a seller's agent. I wanted someone knowledgeable with the homes in my area, honest, trustworthy and able to follow through with their word. He was all of these things and more! When he arrived at my house on time for our initial appointment, he was well prepared and spent almost 2 hours with me. He gave me a high quality personalized CMA folder showing the comps in my area along with the current houses for sale that I would be competing against. He went over all of the sales strategies of Next Home and how they would benefit me. He viewed my house and we discussed what a good listing price would be. This was determined by recent comps in my area, not some unrealistic number that would difficult to sell the house at. I signed a listing contract with him and in a few days he sent a professional photographer out to take still photos, video and drone video of my property (no cost to me). The listing went live and I had 13 people view it in the first 5 days and had 2 solid offers. We went with the best offer. From there on it was just a matter of contract negotiation until we had a signed contract. Chris kept me up to date every three days with a phone call. I always knew what was going with the house at any given time. The closing had an unexpected snag, but he helped me get through that with up to date information. In all, Chris exceeded my expectations for selling agent. I've recommended him to other sellers. My only regret is that I won't be able to use him again because I've left the area.

                • Chris, was very compassionate with my life changees in helping me sell my house during this stressful time in my life. His support staff were more than competent. If I was still an Arizona resident and looking for a home I wouldn't hesitate to hire Chris.

                  - Elizabeth Butler
                • Chris did great job selling my house, he has a lot of perseverance and makes the process very easy on the seller. My entire transaction happened while 1,000 miles away, he made the paperwork painless and the entire thing went off without a hitch.

                  - Scott Birkbeck
                • We would like to thank Chris Benson for making our experience of selling our home stress free. Chris was such a pleasure to work with, he was always available for any questions we may have had. He also explained every step thoroughly and always stayed in touch with the buyers agent, so that everyone was on the same page. We difinately recommend Chris because of his knowledge and professionalism.

                  - Maureen and Frank Seil
                • Chris is a talented and knowledgable real estate professional. He is dialed into the local market and can find the right match and the right price for his customers. Furthermore, he has assembled a talented team of real estate professionals who are ready to assist at any point. We found and purchased our ideal home through Chris and his team. It was truly a pleasure working with them.

                • [ link omitted ]. He promptly communicated with us and introduced a list of homes that we were really excited about to kick-off the process. Throughout our time working with Chris, he was extremely professional, communicative, knowledgable, straight-forward, and he worked quickly! We have never bought a home before this so we had a seemingly endless list of questions that Chris always answered immediately and he was never stumped. We felt like we were in great hands and we really couldn't speak more highly of our experience working with him! In fact- with the knowledge and guidance that Chris provided us, we were able to view multiple properties and close on a home in a stellar location within our price range in just ONE MONTH! Thank you, Chris!

                • Chris and his team did what he promised. He sold our house! All of our questions along the way were answered in a timely manor. If we need to sell a house again I would not hesitate to use Chris and his team again!

                • Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with. My wife and I were first time home buyers and Chris made this experience a breeze for us. Chris was knowledgable, listened to our input, and guided us in making the best decision for our situation without pushing us one way or another. He was always available to answer a question or listen to a concern. We absolutely love our new home and would recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy in the valley.

                • My wife and I were first time home buyers. We knew what we wanted in a house, but didn't really know where to go from there. Chris never failed to show us houses that we really liked. He was very patient, and very easy to work with. He taught us a lot of home buying and home owning tips and trades, and he is VERY knowledgeable realtor. I would, without a doubt, recommend using Chris if you are serious about finding a home you will love for years.

                • Chris is a knowledgeable realtor who kept me informed from start to finish. He was always available to answer any questions promptly. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.

                • Chris was awesome! He was always available to answer questions, show us homes, and was there for the entire process, start to close. Being out of state shoppers was a challenge for us as well as Chris, I'm sure, but he handled it like a pro. We couldn't ask for a better agent!

                  - Joe Suchanek
                • Chris was amazing! He was extremely knowledgable and had great communication which was exactly what we were looking for in a realtor. He was also very patient and flexible when it came to schedules and looking at homes. He was recommended to us by a friend and he will be the first name that comes to mind when others ask for realtor suggestions.

                • Chris Benson and his team are truly amazing! He is fantastic at listening to his clients needs and following up with answers. My wife and I were blown away with his knowledge and sense of urgency. I have spent many years in the real estate industry and wish more agents would value customer service and knowledge the way Chris and his team did. The other people he works with are amazing as well and I highly recommend him and his team to help you with your next sale or purchase. You wont be disappointed!!! I feel I have a friend and an excellent agent that I will continue to utilize on future real estate transaction as well as referring him to others.

                • Chris was great! With me here in AZ looking for a house and my wife in FL this was not a normal sale. He was very patient and quickly responded to all questions and concerns. My wife was comfortable with the process and Chris kept her in formed and a part of everything. Making the whole experience all the better and less stressful.

                • Chris was AMAZING! I unfortunately had to short sale my house and he helped me through every step of the process. With is background in mortgages is is able to get the short sale approved and processed in a reasonable amount of time. I didn't have any issues with the short sale. It was just as smooth as when i had bought my home. Chris is very responsive and always available to answer your questions. He helped me through all the paperwork and the best part is he utilizes the online process so you can submit the paperwork online from anywhere. I was always out of state and this made the process so easy and efficient. I thank Chris for making an unhappy situation into one of little stress.

                • Chris Benson and his team including Daniel Sandoval helped us through a difficult situation. A job hired caused us to move out of state. Our house wasn't getting a lot of immediate bites, so we had to rent our home (Daniel Sandoval guided us through that process). When the market picked up a little bit again, Chris determinedly set out out to sell the house. Though it did a while, Chris' optimistic, no-nonsense, encouraging style brought us to the finish line. My wife and I both highly recommend Chris Benson!

                • Our home was a Best of Tour home that was listed for eight months at the wrong price. When Chris took over the listing, the first thing he did was to get an appraisal. We lowered the price significantly, to the proper point. Chris moved quickly to produce a drone video, an internal video, and a virtual furniture layout. Chris is current with all of the best ways to advertise real estate in this market, including online advertising. Within three months, he had an offer and we closed on our house. There were a few bumps in the road caused by a demanding buyer, but Chris handled them all with grace and confidence. We found Chris to be professional, knowledgeable, caring, and experienced. He has extremely high integrity and is wonderful to work with. We would highly recommend him.
