Ivan is so professional, I'm lucky to have him as my buyer agent so that everything went so smooth and I got my dream house. Since I'm a first house buyer he guided me every steps and explain any question I concerned. He made good contract so that most like our offer is picked.

After 3 other agents brought almost zero potential buyers, Chris brought developers and residential buyers and got a bid about day 7. Chris raised the consideration of building multi-family units which would be ideal for this property and none of the other brokers showed the creativity that Chris brought to the table. I have elected to withdraw the property to enact certain improvements. Chris and I agreed to this approach for several reasons. The selections below do not fit because I pulled it off of the market to improve my position. So, Chris did not sell my place because together, we reasoned that a break in our attempt to sell is the right tactic for the next 3 months. When I put it back on the market, Chris will be my agent. Chris is a very bright guy and seems more interested in my welfare than his profits. I highly recommend Chris without any reservations.

Emil was a perfect agent! He found us a great Home fast! His energy knows no bounds and he listens to your concerns! We had been through several agents by the time we came across Emil and all pro and found working with them to be enjoyable.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Cougar Mountain, Bellevue, WA.
Kelly is truly an amazing agent that helped us get our dream home! We're new to the area and he really understood exactly the kinds of homes and neighborhoods we were interested in. He knows the area very well. We are immensely grateful for his unwavering patience throughout our search. Kelly is extremely responsive and was always there to answer any questions that we had, send us new listings, and guide us throughout the entire process. Kelly was a great partner in helping us negotiate and get the house we wanted. He and his brother Chris even went above and beyond and helped us disassemble and move a heavy desk that the previous owner had left behind. Not just a great agent, but someone that genuinely cares about people and building relationships. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone!

Chris is very easy to work with and super patient when my partner was checking out the houses with him on my behalf. He drove us to visit the condos we are interested in and explained details about the property. The deal closing was very fast and the inspection scheduling, etc, was very smooth. Overall it was a very pleasant home buying experience with Chris and I would 100% recommend him and hope to work with him again in the future.

He and his team were responsive to every question we had, and they helped us navigate the sale from start to finish. Not only did he answer my questions but he openly talked about the industry and all the great things it has to offer.

This was my first time selling property and Chris Gurnee made it easy and made sure I was informed but making my own decisions at every step of the way. They are more there for you rather than the commissioned transaction. He made the transactions with selling our property and buying the new one a pleasure. Two thumbs up

Excellent service and professionalism by Gurnee team. He helped us view the place several times, get it pre-inspected, get our mortgage details in order, put the offer together, and beat out three other offers, all in less than a week. I'd highly recommend these folks.

Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Chris Gurnee ! We interviewed Chris alongside 4 other real estate agent when we began our real estate search. He was the only one who didn't rush us, and made us feel like she would be willing to go above and beyond for us. He is truly the best! He has nothing but the clients' interests in mind. Knowledgeable, experienced, communicative and works within the parameters you give to him.
