"Christopher listened and understood my needs and showed homes that fit the specs. He gave lots of information on the market and gave sound advice when it came to making an offer. Very good responsiveness, from skyping at odd hours while I was overseas to immediate email or text communication. Fantastic service with another associate (Jennifer) before, during and after close of escrow."
"I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell a home. He is, hands down, the best resource one could hope to have while navigating such a potentially stressful life event as buying/selling a property. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise. He helped me through the process of both buying and selling the condominium I was lucky enough to call home for nearly 6 years. During both processes I felt confident I was in good hands and that he had only my best interests at heart. I was especially pleased with how quickly and efficiently he was able to negotiate both transactions for me. I am a very satisfied customer!"
"Christopher Oscar is a real estate agent who truly listens to his clients and walks the extra mile to make sure his clients' needs are met. Christopher found the perfect property for us in a matter of days, and worked diligently to ensure a smooth purchase. He also connected us with a selling agent colleague who was equally exceptional in the sale of our prior home (in San Francisco). We look forward to working with Christopher again one day."

"Chris-- We can’t thank you enough for doing so much to make the purchase of our home in Sonoma a completely positive experience. We love the house and love becoming part of such a wonderful community. The people here are as friendly as the countryside is beautiful. We will recommend you to any friend who has an interest in buying a place in Sonoma. We will tell them how you showed us a range of properties while making a real effort to get on our wavelength and understand the kind of home we really wanted (while respecting our financial limits), how you were always generous with your time and made us feel as if we were your only clients, how well you explained all those documents, how you were totally on our side when it came to negotiating with the seller and how you never stepped out of integrity. We also appreciate your sharing insights into the area you know so well and your making so many great recommendations, from mortgage broker to contractor to restaurants and shopping. All of them have been winners. You’re the best."
Yours truly, Joe and Larry, Sonoma, CA
"We wanted to move to Sonoma from out-of-state, so we had to be efficient with the time we had in looking at homes. Chris tackled our situation with a relentlessly positive attitude. His excellent knowledge of the area, detailed awareness of each home available on the market, combined with his ability to quickly understand the type of house we were looking for, enabled us to find our home on our second trip. He was also an immense help in the escrow and closing process, given our remote situation. Thanks to Chris' efforts we are now happy residents of Sonoma."

"This past January marked three years since Chris helped me get the ball rolling in the serious hunt for my very own home! As a longtime renter I was eager to make the transition to owning my own place; being able to put my hard-earned money toward my own future, rather than using it to help pay the landlords' mortgage. Chris did ALL the heavy lifting in guiding me through the odyssey of purchasing my first property! He was available essentially 24/7 to answer questions and assuage any anxiety I was experiencing since the whole buying process was so foreign and new to me. Any time I had a question or concern, Chris was there to provide an answer personally or to supply me with appropriate contact information. The day I moved from my rental to my newly purchased home was, without a doubt, the happiest day of my life...and I could never have gotten there without someone as endlessly patient and helpful as Chris!"
Lydia, Sonoma, CA
"It has been one year, March 1, 2014 since I moved into my new home. Just wanted to let you know, I just love it! I could not have done it without all your help and extra care. Anytime I had questions about anything I didn’t understand,. or wanted to see another place, you dropped what you were doing to take care of my problems. You explained every step we took on this journey. And helped me pick out the perfect home within my budget and especially my needs. Best of all, you gave me the confidence to believe I could find a new home and start a new life"
B. Owens, Sonoma, CA

"I met Chris through my now-fiancé, prior to us looking for a house. My first impression of Chris was that he was a very friendly, genuine guy. I don’t even think I knew that Chris was a realtor at the time. A few months later, my fiancé and I decided that we were going to seriously start looking for a house and he suggested that we contact Chris. I was a little apprehensive working with a friend, as sometimes it is difficult to be honest about how you feel and in the case of buying a house, I didn’t want to “settle”. I was worried for nothing! Chris is AMAZING! I will be the first to admit that I was extremely picky about what I wanted. I had only ever owned one property and it was brand new when I bought it (this was in Canada, and not even built at the time of sale). Going from owning something brand new to something that is not is difficult (those who have been there will understand). I wanted everything to be perfect, though I soon realized that was not likely. Chris took all of my comments and feedback into consideration, and did his absolute best to find us the perfect house. He was very, VERY patient J We saw about a dozen houses, and made an offer on one that needed a little bit of work but “unfortunately” we did not get that one. I put unfortunately in quotations, because it turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to us. Those shopping for a home, in Sonoma especially, know that supply is extremely limited particularly for move-in ready homes and ones that are just a regular sale (as opposed to a foreclosure or short sale, etc.). Chris had mentioned a house near the beginning of our search, but at first my fiancé was not keen about the location. After seeing what was out there, we decided to take a look at the house Chris had suggested. It was PERFECT! Gorgeous yard, huge house, a great price, and best of all, a straight-forward, regular sale. It was our first time through this process here, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else! He had great suggestions (such as writing a personal letter to the sellers, as our house had another offer on it and we wanted to differentiate ourselves). He took the time to walk us through all of the paperwork, and was there to answer questions for us at any time, via phone, text, or email. We will never be able to thank Chris for the help he gave us in buying our first home together! His advice and his friendship are truly priceless!!"
Erin, Sonoma, CA
"Here is my testimonial, not for only for buying a house, but in gaining a new friend, Chris Oscar. When I embarked on the new adventure as a first time home buyer I was confused as hell! Chris helped guide me through it and was able to answer my questions. That was the smooth part. Then it hit a brick wall when I ran into some family problems. Feeling so comfortable with Chris, I told him my problems. He respectfully gave me some options and always told me to stay positive. He told me to keep positive thoughts. That helped me a lot, as sometimes I felt that I was never going to have the American Dream of owning a home. I kept thinking about what Chris said, stay positive, and I did no matter what the speed bumps were in life. With his friendship, I overcame those speed bumps. There were times when he would see me crushed, and he would tell me, Adrian if you want to back out you can. He would say, I want the best for my client, and I said no, I am going to make it happen. It took a while, as we lost the first house we had an offer on. I remember clearly when we went to see the second house, as soon as we walked in Chris told me with a smile, 'Adrian, this could be your house.' Ten minutes later, we made it happen, and now I am a proud homeowner. I would also like to thank Gary Umholtz and Robbie from RPM Mortgage. I put them through hell with paperwork lol. I am very happy, not only for buying my first home, but making 3 awesome friends. Chris, Gary, Robbie, much love and respect to all."
