Chris DeNike's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Chris DeNike

  • Chris listed and sold my home

      I found Chris de Nike through his reviews. I had met with other agents through more traditional channels (friends’ recommendations), and hadn’t liked any of them. They all seemed unfocused, rushed, and more concerned with a quick sale than their clients’ interests. Chris’ reviews said the opposite, so I gave him a call, figuring I would meet with him and see. My expectations were low, but when I met Chris, he seemed calm, focused and very interested in what my needs were. All agents have polished their “elevator talk”, so I didn’t know if his attitude over coffee would translate during an actual transaction. But I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and asked him to help me find a home. Here’s what you need to know about Chris: he is quick to respond (every time I asked him “what about this one?”, he would respond “let’s see it this afternoon”), he watches out for your interests (he convinced me NOT to buy several properties because he didn’t think they would hold value), and he will not push you into anything just to close the deal. Also, he really knows the market, will get you top dollar for your property, and will make the process as seamless as possible. We have done 3 transactions together so far, and I could not be happier with his work. Highly, highly recommend! Thanks, Chris!

    • Chris listed and sold my home

        Chris DeNike is a complete pro. We set out with a specific budget and goal in mind. Chris listened to our needs, helped us to think critically about our criteria, and offered insight that allowed us to feel educated and empowered on both the buy and sell side of our transactions. With Chris's help we were able to time the purchase and sale of our homes within weeks of one another, and came away feeling like we would not have been able to pull it off as smoothly with a different agent. Honest and attentive with great communication skills, clear but never pushy- and kind to boot- Chris was awesome to work with.

      • He has such a clear sense of the market, of the value of houses, even in a fluctuating market, and of the negotiating process. He is also just fun to work with and makes the whole nerve-wracking process of buying a house easier and more enjoyable. I highly recommend working with Chris DeNike.

      • Chris has been our realtor for two home purchases one home sale and a referral to a family member for their purchase. We couldn't be happier with the results of each purchase/sale. A++++++

        - Tor & Kathy S. Mill Valley
      • I can't recommend Chris DeNike more highly for his real estate insights, ability to work thru problems as they arise, and the constructive karma he exhibited throughout the process. Chris will be the first one I call if I am ever in the market for another property.

      • Chris just sold our Mill Valley house. He was really easy to work with, very responsive and caring. We could not be happier with the results. We would highly recommend Chris DeNike!

        - Andre & Natalia M. Mill Valley
      • He is the BEST! Now as I reflect on our decision to have Chris as our realtor, I realize how fortunate we are to have had him on our side. As I said, he is the BEST! :)

        - Jeff and Colleen C. Tiburon
      • If I could have given more stars I would. Chris sold our Mill Valley home for us and did such an awesome job, far above my original high expectations. He was completely transparent and helpful, he advised us on the right price to sell at (and judged it just right), he produced some amazing marketing materials and got the home sold.

        - Ted R. Mill Valley
      • We worked with Chris to purchase and recently sell our home. He is exceptionally professional, courteous, responsive, knowledgeable, and organized. Most importantly, Chris listens to clients and develops a plan to help them achieve their goals. I enthusiastically recommend Chris~Ideally, we would never work with another agent! You can't go wrong entrusting Chris DeNike with the purchase or sale of your home.
