More about Chris Cote

Having bought, sold and owned/managed rental properties in the Dallas, Detroit and Denver metro areas, with experience in residential, commercial and undeveloped properties, I’ve experienced the critical importance in one’s selection of a real estate broker. There’s lots of them out there--lots of brokers and brokerages clamoring for your business and making all kinds of claims and promises. How do you select one? The decision is consequential. In my experience, it’s a very small portion of them that are committed to and capable of providing great above-and-beyond service in handling your real estate transaction. There’s even fewer that go beyond the financial and legal aspects to guide you in finding a community and culture that will help your family feel genuinely at home to thrive. 8z is one of those brokerages and I’m one of those brokers.

Chris Cote's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Chris Cote

    • "From our very first consultation with Chris Cote, I knew that we were going to be working with a true real estate professional. He listened to our goals and expectations with regards to selling our house and helped outline an efficient, high-tech marketing strategy and effective timeline to get our house sold. Chris provided outstanding communication and personal service throughout the entire process of listing our home. With his effective marketing plan and careful consideration to the proper listing price, Chris had our house under contract within 10 days and at 99% of our original asking price despite the slow market with similarly price homes in our area. While under contract, Chris was there every step of the way to provide us clear options and guidance at critical decision points to keep the entire process moving forward smoothly. From start to finish, Chris was absolutely top-notch and we couldn't have asked for anything better with the sale of our home. Chris Cote is the true definition of 'professional'. His knowledge of the real estate market, along with a honest and caring personal approach to each client's specific situations is what sets him apart from the rest of the industry. If you are looking to sell your home, Chris Cote is THE real estate agent you need to hire. From the very first consultation with him, you will quickly realize you are now working with the best!"

    • We wholeheartedly recommend using Chris Cote as a realtor, and are happy to share our positive experiences with Chris and his team at 8Z. We spoke with Chris several months before we actually asked him to be our agent to buy a home. Our son and daughter-in-law had used Chris to find their home in 2017, and he came highly recommended from them. They were so pleased, as first time homebuyers, that he stayed engaged and involved with them throughout the whole process, patiently answering all their questions and providing reassurance. Based on our conversation with him, Chris kept in touch with us over the next few months, sending us listings so we could fine tune where we were looking, and the type of house we were looking for. There was never any pressure to buy, and we were able to use that time to prepare financially.Because of a family situation, we found ourselves having to purchase a home about six months earlier than planned. I called Chris, late in the evening, and asked if we could look at two houses the next day. He rearranged his schedule and made the appointments, had market and competitive data ready to share, and we made an offer within a day. It was only possible as, beyond Chris and his team, 8Z has so many incredible partners- we were approved for a mortgage over the phone and had an appointment with a home inspector the same day. Unfortunately, the inspection results were less than desired, and we opted out of the contract. The same day, we were again looking at houses with Chris. We made an offer, it was accepted, and the inspection results were acceptable. We were able to work with Dave, our mortgage broker, and change the pending mortgage to the new address, with only minor revisions necessary. From start to finish, we were able to find, not one but two homes, negotiate offers, conduct inspections, obtain financing and close on our home in just one month. Chriss professionalism, accurate data and intuitive sense of the changing Castle Rock market, and strong negotiating skills gave us a strong, successful purchase offer, even as other competing offers were on the table. We could never have done this without Chris complete dedication, he treated us as if we were his only customer, he made himself available 24/7 with phone calls and texts, and he took every one of our concerns seriously and resolved them immediately. Thanks, Chris!

    • Chris did an exceptional job, in every facet, in helping us sell our home in Castle Rock, CO. Due to his research and diligence, we were able to sell our home in the Terrain addition at a premium. He made the entire process as seamless as possible, and was an invaluable resource for information, as this was our first home selling experience. His outgoing personality and friendly demeanor made it an absolute pleasure to work with him. Chris exceeded all of our expectations, and will be our ONLY choice on any / all upcoming housing transactions in the future.

    • Chris Cote was everything as advertised and more! From start to finish we felt like we had a friend helping us navigate through this arduous process. Chris made sure we understood each step, listened and attended to our wants and needs, and put extra resources into place to help us deal with all the hustle and bustle that goes with selling your home. We had lots of issues pop up along the way; often times at moments which were already filled with a great amount of stress. You cannot ask for and hope to get a better real estate agent. He was professional, responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy; Chris is a family man himself with a big heart. He understands what a family wants and needs in finding a new home. Chris is the person you want helping you find your new home in Colorado. We cannot say enough about Chris Cote!

    • Chris did an excellent job helping my family and I find a home. He was very knowledgeable of the South Denver suburban area. Also he kept our wishes of where we wanted to live in mind in order to find us a home. Highly recommended! Chris also sold our place for full price before it even hit the market with no showings!

      - Shauna Hannon Johnson
    • Chris was outstanding at helping our family find the perfect home! He really listened to our likes and dislikes, worked with our difficult schedule and fought to get us the best price possible and a fast closing. He went so above and beyond to the point of even helping us find a church, babysitter, and MUCH more. We would happily recommend Chris to anyone!

      - Jessica Eben, Castle Pines, CO
    • Best Real Estate Transaction Ever! Just thought I'd send a shout out to Chris Cote of 8z Real Estate. He knew the area and Terrain really well. He was prepared with extremely accurate comps and a strategy on how to sell our house in the market and particularly the Castle Rock and Terrain area. He had advanced metrics which allowed him to price our house in such a way to develop bidding wars and end up selling our house for well over asking price with extra perks built into the offer!! Chris was great at making sure all aspects of both our seller side as well as the buyer side went smoothly. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking to either sell their house or to buy a house. Very compassionate guy with lots of knowledge and smarts when it comes to real estate!!

      - J Dave McNaul, Castle Rock, CO
    • Chris was open, honest, supportive and fun to work with during a long and stressful process in the sale of our home. His experience, advice and responsiveness was excellent. I would strongly recommend utilizing Chris to anyone who is looking for Real Estate support.

      - John F Sutton, Castle Rock, CO
    • Chris Cote is perhaps the most attentive, caring real estate broker I've ever encountered. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He will take the time to get to know you and your needs, and work tirelessly to meet those needs until he has found the home for you that fits.

    • Worked with two agents before finally signed up with Chris and got the house sold. Kind of love affairs before get Chris worked for me. When I initially looked for agents for selling my house, I was very impressed with his thorough understanding and up to date feel of the housing market. I liked his philosophy and strategy of selling as well. So I decided to working with him. However, unlike other agents' aggressiveness in soliciting business, he didn't respond to my message right away. Since I have moved out of the region, and was in a rush mode; plus I wanted someone to be able to communicate with me in a what I perceived "timely manner", I thought he had a busy schedule and would not be easy to work with. I went with another agent. That agent was reliable, but didn't get a house sold - no offer (my first agent actually underestimate the price value to begin with, and I forced him to raise the price. I felt he was not confident enough to sell the house at the listing price.) So when the listing expired with the first agent, I again thought of Chris. Because I didn't tell him the listing has expired, he sounded elusive to me, and didn't give me a "yes" answer right away. Fall was approaching, and I needed the house sold and also needed someone to look after the house as I was not in the region, I signed up with a high profile agent who always sounds upbeat, and volunteered quite a bit of things that turned out not happening at all, including free staging and house maintenance. When I was back to the house in couple of months, the house was not maintained at all. The sprinkler system was not shutoff as requested. After she initially touted high price of the house, she dropped the house price to test the market without me knowing it. She then requested me to lower my housing price even more - over $20k. I just didn't believe my house value should be that low as my overall house condition is very good, and the market is still strong. The winter was coming. I dumped that agent. Then I thought about Chris again. After a good conversion, again I felt Chris had the right gauge of the market. He thought my house should be sold at higher price because of its condition and market. He helped take care of house in the winter, and put the house again on market at a time that he thought was right. With no surprise, there were couple of offers and the house was under contract within 3 weeks of listing - above the listing price! During contract negotiation process, Chris was also very effective as well. Chris is a smart and reliable business man. My initially impression of him being difficult to be in touch turns out to be untrue. When things are at important stage, he is very timely and reliable. When it's not that critical, he may be a bit slow to respond, but that actually won't hurt the process. Chris' gauge of market pulse is pretty accurate (I would say best among over 10 agents that I interviewed with), and he has very good marketing strategy to get the maximum value of the house. He is not like other agents aggressively preaching business (it took him two days to reply to me after I first reached out him to come to look at the house), but once he has the house under his umbrella, he is very responsible. He has a very good photography team. I am not talking about 3D yet. Just for the regular photos of the house, his team did a much better job to capture the beauty of the house. The photos of previous two agents showed my house as dark, low, and somewhat dirty carpet. But in reality, the house had a very very high ceiling, bright, and like-new carpet. I strongly recommend Chris for his excellence to get job done.

    • Chris was awesome. A great partner in seeking our house. His advice was always spot on and in our best interests. He led dealing with another agent who did not represent realtors well, Chris was vital to getting the deal done.

      - Anonymous, Castle Rock, CO
    • We never felt like a client. It was more of a partnership. Our buyers were difficult and our sale was the first domino ina connected series of sales. Chris held everything together when failure was a distinct option. I unequivocally recommend Chris and his team.

      - Michael Rowells, Castle Rock, CO
    • What impressed us most about Chris was the fact that although he wasn't even our real estate agent, he did everything possible to be transparent, highly informative, honest and personable with my wife and I throughout the process. He went above and beyond his responsibilities to answer our questions and gather all the information we needed to complete the transaction in a manner that was a win-win for both the seller he was representing and us. He definitely made a positive impression on us and would certainly call him in the future with any real estate transactions that we have in the future.

      - Valentine, Parker, CO
    • Chris was phenomenal! From beginning to end, through ups and downs, he was with us all the way. We cant say enough about his professionalism and obvious live for his job.

      - Schmidts, Evergreen, CO
    • He was wonderful, couldn't have asked for a better experience! Online traffic was stellar. We got 99.7% of the $455k we hoped to get. The offer was cashno appraisal, no loan conditions. Part of the Earnest Money was nonrefundable. Only three small items on the Inspection Resolution. And, we made your timeline work with the lease-back. And all of this in 33 days as the fall market slowed. Im really thrilled and grateful that everything came together so perfectly!

      - Coffeys, Castle Rock, CO
    • Chris is an OUTSTANDING realtor. We consulted with Chris, among other realtors, and he was the only one who actually backed up the amount he thought we should list for, with evidence. It fell right in line with what I anticipated. Ive never had a realtor who actually worked SO hard- from pre-marketing on Zillow, knocking on doors to advertise the upcoming preview open house, to showing up for the open house with snacks, flowers, water, and music. He was just the best- and it paid off! We ended up with a full price offer, before the house even hit the MLS. Chris is the most communicative, responsive and straight forward realtor. If we hadnt moved out of state, he would have earned the spot as our realtor for life. Instead, I can just urge you to work with Chris Cote!

    • Chris did a fantastic job in understanding our preferences and helping us find and negotiate our new home in Castle Rock. He is passionate about his clients and the area, and was an excellent guide throughout our process.

    • Chris was great to work with throughout the entire process. Even in a hot market, he provided a well thought out strategy to get top dollar for our home. We went under contract within 2 days of listing. When the buyer terminated the contract at inspection, Chris communicated the situation very well and talked us through it. He got our house back on the market immediately and we sold it again with a full price offer. Chris knows the market, the Terrain neighborhood, and is great at communicating where the process is at. We would highly recommmend!

      - Mike Bowmans, Castle Rock, CO
    • From the beginning Chris was extremely professional and easy to work with. He is a resident of Castle Rock and very active in this community. This has afforded him great knowledge of this market, and he did not mislead us on any step of our process. His communication was top notch and very timely. Not once were we wondering where we stood. 8z's marketing of our home and statistical data on our listing was better than anything we've seen in past home sales. Without a second thought we would recommend Chris to anyone. We will definitely hire him again should the need arise.
