For the average person, buying a house is an emotional roller coaster. There’s the excitement of looking for a place, being approved for a loan and having your offer being accepted. The low of realizing what you want and can afford are on different levels, problems that come up in the loan process or home inspection and your offer not being accepted. Last, the anxiety of waiting for your offer to be accepted or multiple offers on a place you really want. You need an agent to help you navigate these waters. Chris Luna was that agent for us. He was fabulous to work with. He knows the market and isn’t afraid of challenges that you may face, be it your price range or loan type. He will educate, guide and reassure you when you need it and bring you back down to reality when you’re making compromises because you’re tired of looking. He is caring, informative, patient, flexible and great with kids. I have to note that especially because while viewing houses, our 2.5 yr. old kept trying ditch us to show him stuff and hold his hand. He was gracious about it and gave her that attention while noticing and pointing out little issues that could be a problem if we were to move forward on it.Full experience: This wasn’t exactly our first home purchase. The first time we didn’t understand what we were getting into and got in way over our heads and ultimately had to short sale. I was upfront with him about this so he knew I was apprehensive about buying a place in the bay area again, but we needed our own place (couple living with parents and a 2.5 yr. old) and rent was pretty much the same payment. We met and talked about our wants and needs. He was upfront about the challenges we might face in our price range and the type of loan we were using but he was encouraging. He was ready to take on that challenge. Once he gave us a list of properties to check out things got exciting, but just as fast, they also got a little disappointing. After mapping out some of the properties and getting a feel for the area, I started to lose that excitement seeing what our price point could afford and where we would be. Chris was a little bit of a therapist about this and helped us narrow down our must haves and what we could compromise on. He thought it best to get us out there and physically visiting homes to really get a feel for the properties and neighborhood. As we would view each house, he would point out things that could be a problem for our loan approval (unpermitted additions), things that may become a bigger issue (previous water damage), and things that weren’t even on our radar (wood trim that had dry rot). Getting out there worked, the excitement was up again. Now we started compromising too much. “This area has better schools... How about a condo instead? Do we need that much space? O wait, I don’t want to go outside to get to the garage to do laundry. Maybe we can do 1.5 baths…or even 1 bath. We can add-on a bath later?” These are all the thoughts that had entered my mind at some point. One condo we almost made an offer on, he had me thinking about space and the neighbors. The neighbors in the complex were older and established. He had to keep reminding me that I have an active 2.5 yrs. old. Kids need space. “We will find you a house, be patient” are the words he kept telling me. These are things those articles don’t tell you. These are things that an agent keeps in mind and mentions. We finally got lucky. The paperwork gets overwhelming and Chris was great at explaining everything in layman terms and keeping us informed of the process and timeline. He guided us thru some counter offers and once our offer was finally accepted, he setup and managed all our inspections. He was there for each inspection, even when we couldn’t make it.Thanks to Chris we didn’t compromise. We were able to find a home that met all of our wants and needs, one that if for some reason the housing market busts again and we ended up upside down, it won’t matter because we are already comfy in our home.
Sorry this review is long overdue, but I finally had time to write it. We met Chris through a friend and from the very first day he was very professional and patient because we brought our one year old with us. As soon as we met Chris we knew he was a cool guy! For the get go, he was very organized because Chris gave us a folder packet with all the tips, advice, do’s and don’ts on what we needed to do before looking for the perfect home. We were in search for a 2 bedroom condo back in 2015! Chris gave us so many listings (10-20) and each time we had to narrow it down to our top favorite 5 listings. We would go from Fremont, Union City, Pleasanton, Dublin, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, San Ramon. Chris would contact each agent, set up an appointment for about 3-5 listings in one weekend day. Chris is definitely organized and knows how to manage his time efficiently! After looking for a few months, we finally found a condo that we really liked so we placed an offer and it was accepted! We did all the paperwork and inspections, etc. After getting the inspection, issues came up and all of a sudden something didn’t feel right in our guts, so we had to call Chris and tell him we needed to back out. We felt awful that we had to tell Chris the news. But we needed to feel more secure and needed to be absolutely in love with this condo. Chris was so understanding with our decision and said ok I will call the seller and let them know. We decided to put everything on hold and a couple months later my husband got laid off. Backing out from the condo was definitely a blessing in disguise. Months passed and Chris would touch base with us to see how we were doing. We told him that we can’t start looking until my husband found a job. Chris understood but never gave up on us! A year has passed by and Chris would still contact us and see if we were ready to start home shopping again. My husband got a job but we still weren’t ready. But Chris said “No problem, I’m here when you’re ready. Don’t forget me!” It’s now 2017 and we finally decided to start house hunting again. After much contemplating we decided to look into Brentwood this time. Instead of that 2 bedroom condo in the Bay Area, we wanted a bigger home since we have 2 toddler boys. Deciding to get out of the Bay Area was a big decision that we kept going back and forth on. Chris contacted us out of the blue and we said we are ready to start looking again, but this time in Brentwood. Chris got on in and sent us so many listings and all the homes were beautiful! We had a long list to look through and narrowed it down to our favorites. Long story short, we finally found our dream home and we did it with Chris! If you’re looking for an agent, Chris is your man. He is very professional, organized and patient! It’s our first time buying a home and he answered all of our questions. I don’t know any other agent who would wait this long for their clients. He is so thoughtful too, thank you for the personalized doormat and wonderful bottle of wine! Thank you Chris for not giving up on us and for helping us find out dream home!
Chris was everything we were hoping for in a realtor. From the first time speaking on the phone to meeting in person, we knew he was the right person to help my husband and I find and purchase our first home. Chris began by gaining a sense of what type of home we were interested, what our must haves and must not haves were and why they were important to us. When we first set out to look at a couple of homes, Chris was great at pointing out details to pay attention too; some that might need fixing down the road, others that might need fixing right away and average cost. He even steered us away from one home that didn't meet his expectations. When we found the home we would end up purchasing, Chris was the one to point out how many items on our list that house met; including the price. Once we made our offer, Chris worked diligently to make sure everything went as smooth as possible and that we stayed informed along the entire process. He flawlessly answered my never ending questions and concerns and did so without ever breaking a sweat or losing that charming smile. He encouraged us to bring our family members over for them to get a feel for the house. He even answered all of their questions and concerns. When it came to completing our final walk through, Chris made sure all of the agreed upon corrections met our expectations and that we were completely satisfied. He was kind enough to send us pictures and video of the corrections because my husband and I couldn't make it out in time. Chris was professional, kind and honest. We felt at ease the entire time due to his mannerisms. Having heard so many peoples horror stories of their first home buying process, we are proud to say Chris kept his word and made this experience one to always remember. Thank you Chris for all that you have done for us and helping us to make our dream of being homeowners a reality. We would hands down recommendations Chris for anyone looking to purchase a home.
My first real estate transaction with Chris was purchasing a short sale house. Everything went much more smoothly and swiftly than I had expected. He managed to get my offer accepted in spite of it not being the highest bid. One of the things that Chris reassured me was that he was going to stick with me from start to end, no matter what challenges we had to face. Now, four years later, we had outgrown that home. An opportunity came up for us to try and purchase a bigger house in the same neighborhood. I had no idea if it was even possible since the sellers had a deadline to move, and for us to purchase that house meant selling our home at the same time. There was no doubt that I was going to call upon Chris again for the job. Selling and purchasing simultaneously had its challenges. We encountered numerous problems regarding buyers backing out, timeline issues, vendor problems, etc. You name it, we had it. Chris never once lost his patience and composure. He always reassured me that we were going to get this done. He went above and beyond to make sure we were getting the best deal for our house. He makes you feel like you are his only client, answering endless questions right away and assuaging any concerns you have. He always looked out for our best interests. Somehow, after a lot of stress and back and forth with several buyers, we managed to make the timeline and purchased the house we really wanted. We were able to close the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home on the same day. What I can say about Chris is that he will stick with you for better or worse. Having witnessed how he works through both smooth and challenging transactions, I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
We decided to sell our home of 15 years to move to a better school district for our children. We've seen how successful Chris was in the real estate business through mutual friends so it only seems fitting that we approach him about selling our home and finding a new one in the school district we wanted. He was very patient & professional and took the time to explain the expectations we were about to go through. He acknowledged the emotional ties we had with our home and moved with caution. He shared his knowledge and expertise which helped us make some hard decisions and move forward. He made himself available whenever anxiety kicked in and answered all our questions & concerns. We followed the helpful tips he gave us for staging our home which ultimately resulted in multiple offers on our home! We found our new home soon after we accepted an offer on our old home. The process went pretty seamless. Chris sent us recommended vendors to process our home, roof, and pest inspections. It was nice to see he supported a lot of local vendors. We ended up closing on both homes on the same day which I've been told was almost impossible because of all the moving dates that could happen. The stars were aligned for us, and as Chris says, if it's meant to be, it will be. If you want an experienced realtor who does right by his clients, Chris is your guy! He works hard for this clients and follows through on all his commitments, even after closing! As stressful as it is to sell/buy a home at the same time, Chris made it such a positive experience for us. We highly recommend him. You're a rockstar, Chris!My family and I thank you and appreciate all your help!
My wife and I worked with three different realtors in our home search, and Chris Luna was by far the best. He was professional, punctual, and went above and beyond to help us find our home. When we first began looking at houses, Chris was very attentive and listened to our wants in a house. He was realistic with us, which helped narrow down our search to only look at houses that met our wants. This made the process more enjoyable since we didn’t have to look at 4+ houses every weekend like we did with the other realtors. We told Chris we were also on a time crunch since we were expecting our son in less than six months and wanted to be settled in our new home before he was born. Chris was proactive the whole time. Within two months, we found a home in the neighborhood we wanted and within our budget. We were excited about the home, so Chris met us right away to see it. After seeing it, we knew we wanted to make an offer. Chris counseled us to make an offer as soon as possible before their open house to let the seller know we were very interested. We also helped us decide on a competitive offer within our budget and under the asking price. After a few days of negotiating, our offer was accepted! During escrow, Chris helped each step of the way and helped make all the inspections, paperwork, and deadlines a breeze. We closed escrow in exactly 30 days and moved into our new home months before our son was born. Chris even came back early from a trip to bring us the keys to our new home! When we are ready to buy or sell a home, we will definitely be using Chris again and recommend you do too!
This is an overdue review for this great realtor (who also happens to be a long time friend of my husband), Chris Luna. Back in 2013, Chris helped us purchase our very first home. During that time, many first time buyers like us, were getting outbid by cash buyers, and although we were getting disheartened, Chris never gave up and helped us find the right home for us. Fast forward to this year, we had to sell the home that we bought in '13 quickly, to move into a more comfortable home. It was a roller coaster of emotions, especially for me, because we made many memories in that home. Chris worked tirelessly day and night, to get our home quickly in the market and before we knew it, we got an offer and the home sold rather fast. So fast, that there was a home in the same neighborhood, that went in the market before us, which is still for sale to this day. We couldn't be more happy and relieved that we didn't have to be in the same position as them. Thanks to Chris who published the listing and marketed it non-stop so we wouldn't have to worry about paying a mortgage and a lease in our new home for a few months. Chris, thank you for working with us once again and when the time comes that we are ready to buy another home, we will not hesitate or think twice to reach out to you again!!! Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving!
I'm not sure we could've had an easier experience buying our first home. With a baby on the way, we decided that we needed to move into a bigger space that we can call "home." Although we weren't convinced that buying a house at this time was the "right" move, we kept our options open and inquired numerous times about houses with Chris, and numerous months went by without us giving him a commitment to move forward with the process. We as buyers would go back and forth about whether the time is right... and throughout those months of deliberating, Chris would send us a text or email just checking in about where we stand in our pursuit of a home. Some say "persistence is key," well Chris not only displays that in his efforts to get new clients, but long after you're settled in your new home, Chris is still checking in to let you know that he cares. I could go on and on about how Chris' work is superior to others, but the truth is that we are thankful to have gone through this experience with such a genuine person who advocates for his clients. He gives the buyer great perspective and also throws in a little humor to make the journey even easier. Make the right choice and give Chris a call so that he can find you the home you've been dreaming of.
How do you choose the right real estate agent when the business is saturated with them? Well, I can tell you that you will have chosen wisely if you pickChris Luna to represent you in your real estate needs.He represented me in the purchase of my new home and I was highly satisfied with his service and expertise. He attentively listens to your concerns and creates an action plan for your personal needs and has extensive experience in the business which is important in having the right connections to get things done accurately and quickly. He is a great communicator who will negotiate the best outcome on your behalf instead of “out to make a quick buck.'' It is so important to have someone you can trust in such an important investment and you quickly realize that Chris Luna is that person! He is that patient voice of reason and serenity during the tumultuous buying/selling process who will many times help you look at the “bigger picture”. Chris is readily available and encourages you to call him with any questions that you may have about the process. He will also be along your side every step of the way from selecting your real estate goals, to home inspection, to signing, to final delivery of your keys!! But I think most importantly, Chris loves the real estate business and he loves helping people. Let him help you, you will not be disappointed!!
Chris came highly recommended to us by a couple friends who have gone through the home sale/purchase experience with him already. Chris helped us sell a condo in San Ramon that had been a rental property for the last 12 years. He was very familiar with the local market. When our condo was listed, two other condos on the same street went up for sale with our condo being the most outdated one since no upgrades had been done being that it was a rental property. Chris knew exactly what needed to be done in order to not be the last condo still up for sale with the tough competition. He was quick to get all the marketing done to advertise the sale, get feedback from those who have seen the condo to see what they felt was missing, etc. With his feedback and advice, our condo was the first one to sell. All three condos went up for sale in the same week in May, and one of them is still for sale today (mid-August). We are certainly glad that we are not that one. I have bought and purchased severals homes, and Chris is definitely one of the top agents that I have dealt with. We are now in the process of having Chris help us buy our new home.
In 2009 we were having a hard time finding a home. The realtor we had didn't seem to listen to what we were looking for. My wife was so frustrated with her, we had to find a new realtor. We found Chris, and everything seemed to relax. I didn't realize how stressful it was with our "ex" realtor. Chris took the time to listen to what we were looking for and just showed us houses that fit our criteria. Once we found a house we loved, we put in an offer and were outbid. That however didn't slow him down, he was able to find another house with the exact same floor plan that were we able to purchase. Fast forward to 2018, we had decided that it was time to leave California and would need to sell our home. So we called up Chris and asked him if he would list our house. Selling a house is very different than buying one, Chris made sure that we understood the entire process from getting the house ready to show, to closing. The great thing is that we sold the house in about a week for above listing. My only regret is that Chris couldn't help me buy our new house in Florida.
I reached out to Chris when my wife and I decided it was time to buy a home and he responded immediately. We had never bought a home before, so we had no idea what to expect. Chris was extremely informative to all of our questions and concerns and provided extensive information on items we didn't know we should ask about. He was never flustered and always provided in depth and unbiased information on whatever questions we had. He was always on time, if not early, to each appointment we had, we never had to wait for him. He was very professional every step of the way and always went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. He laid out decisions and provided pros and cons for each, but did not try to sway us one way or another. He let us make our own decisions, then helped us down the path we chose. He alleviated any stress we had and made the experience very enjoyable. I will not hesitate to work with Chris again in the future, when we are ready to purchase again. Chris is an A+ agent who is very honest and professional.
I am a second time home buyer. My experience throughout both processes has been night and day. Chris was phenomenal. I was carrying a lot of anxiety and mistrust after my initial process. I had no idea that the home buying process could be such a fun and rewarding experience! Chris understood my needs and what I was looking for. He took great care in making sure that I understood and was brought into the process. He anticipated my questions and was incredibly responsive. In fact, he regularly gave me firm and friendly nudges to keep me on the path and on timelines. I never had to chase him down for responses and information. As a single buyer with a demanding career, this was incredibly important to me. He took care to break down the complicated and overwhelming process of finding, bidding on and ultimately purchasing a home, sticking with me well after papers were signed and keys were turned over to ensure that my transition into my new home was a beautiful and enjoyable experience. I am a client for life!
I wish to acknowledge and recognize Chris Luna for his attention to detail and industry experience in the preparation and sale of my home. From start to finish the entire process took roughly 35 days. Chris’ being the SME Subject Matter expert that he is, I placed my full trust and confidence in allowing him to lead me into this very stressful event in my life. He suggested a home inspection report to identify the property deficiencies and properly pricing my home for today’s market. Once the open house came around, I received six offers and decided to go with one of the prospective buyers, whom was strong contender and we successfully closed escrow in thirty days. I could not have been more pleased to have had a great experience with Chris Luna.If you are in the market to buy or sell your property, save yourself some time by reaching out to Chris, you will not be disappointed. Thank You.
Working with Chris during the home buying process was like winning the lottery! He was always in contact; after hours during the weekdays and weekends (which blew me away)! Not only was he available but he was very intuitive regarding my needs, expectations and my requirements for a home. I was the client however he made sure I was continually and fully engaged. He also went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with whatever step we were in within the process and he was my answering machine for all and any questions! He will receive a plethora of referrals from me and I am definitely utilizing his experience, professionalism and candor in the future. He has a can-do attitude, will-do attitude and he absolutely does get it done. I highly recommend him and I am not the easiest clients to work with. :) Thanks a ton, Chris!!
Mr. Luna made our home buying experience completely stress free! Through his knowledge and experience, we were able to find a home, close, and get the keys all under 40 days! Additionally, he was able to negotiate a reduction of $15,000 from the original asking price! Mr. Luna communicated with complete transparency, setting realistic expectations every step of the way. He was readily available via text, phone, email, and in person to address any of our questions and concerns. Lastly, Mr. Luna showed his dedication to his clients by working through major holidays, including his birthday! When the opportunity presents itself, we will continue to work with Mr. Luna for our second home and refer him to all of our family members and friends without any hesitation. Thank you again for all of your help and support!
We had the best experience working with Chris. We had tons of questions about purchasing a house, since this was going to be our first. Chris had answers to all our questions and we never felt embarrassed asking the simplest things. He made us feel very at ease. He gave us many ideas and insights of what we can do for upgrades when we visited countless open houses. He was there every step of the way and never pressured us one bit. Just when we started losing hope on finding a home, after losing on bids, Chris kept the fire burning. He told us not to give up and he guaranteed he will find us something. A few weeks later, he did. Now that we purchased our first home, he still offers advice, ideas and his references of how we can make it our perfect home. We couldn't be any happier working with Chris. He's the man!!!
Chris recently helped us to sell an investment property. Because I was away on assignment and only available during odd hours, we thought that this would be a challenging task. Chris was accommodating with his availability and kept us abreast and well informed throughout the whole process. His attention to open communication is highly appreciated. What's more, through his real estate knowledge and marketing expertise, Chris strategically scheduled a one day open house which pulled in twelve written offers. We closed the deal within 8 days of the property being on the market and got well over our asking price. Thank you, Chris, for making this experience seemingly smooth and for assuring us that we did the right thing.
Chris Luna was recommended to us by close friends. Chris is friendly and personable but following are some of the attributes that connected with us. We appreciated the insight into property conditions. For example, Chris would quickly notice repairs that were designed to cover over or obscure a condition. He always ensured we had full documentation on the properties we visited which enabled us to ask more questions. At the transaction phase, Chris patiently explained legal provisions in documents until we were comfortable. Our successful purchase was enabled by our agent, Chris Luna, so I recommend Chris to all looking for an experienced and honest agent.
This review is a true testimony of a realtor that understands this process and that is committed to provide not just the service to purchase a home but a person that takes pride in his craft and the well being of what your trying to accomplish as a home owner.Very professional, down to earth person with a strong work ethic, works around the clock to accommodate you and your questions. He made this process exciting as well as comfortable. I would highly recommend Chris and his team to assist you with your housing needs as he made mine a memorable one with such ease. Many thanks Chris to you and your team!
It was such a pleasure to work with Chris! Being a first time home buyer, I was a bit intimidated at first however Chris eased whatever anxiety I had. He helped me find my first home during an extremely difficult time in my life. Any questions I had were answered quickly and efficiently. Chris is very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. I am very happy with my first home and couldn't have been more pleased with the service. Thank you Chris for the time and effort you spent with me, making my first experience as easy as it was! I definitely recommend Chris Luna to anyone and would not hesitate to call him again.
What can I say, Chris Luna was absolutely amazing. I've known Chris for several years since he sold my mom's house and I knew from there, he would be the one to help me purchase a home. I was on a time crunch to buy a home and Chris continually sent me new homes that were on the market and he did what he could to set up the viewing of these homes. Chris always answered my questions, he is extremely knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. Chris, thank you so much for everything you did for us. We could not be happier!
Chris helped me with buying a house in a senior community. He was very professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. His advice helped me in getting a house with multiple offers. The only reason that I gave him 4 stars for local knowledge was because he wasn't as familiar with the area I was looking in, but he made up for that in always finding out the information that I needed and getting back to me right away. The process was overwhelming at times, but he kept me on track. I would highly recommend him.
We were recommended Chris by our friends and we are very pleased with our experience. As a first time home buyer we barely knew the process and asked tons of questions. He has always been very responsive and helpful on any our inquiry. He visited almost all open houses with us and always stayed in touch when we needed to act fast. The road to our dream home was not broad and Chris helped us on every step. I would like to recommend him as a professional. Thank You, Chris!
Chris was a great real estate agent! He was very knowledgeable and catered to exactly what type of property my fiancé and I were looking for. He was very honest in how we should go about purchasing our new home without being pushy. He made it to almost all of our open houses in order to help us as first time home buyers what to expect and look for. And in about a month and a half, my fiancé and I can say we are homeowners. With a big thanks to Chris Luna.
My husband and I have worked with Chris Luna a few times before and every time we get more than what we expect from a realtor. He is very knowledgeable in today's market and we feel like he went above and beyond to help us get the home we really wanted. He's very responsive, he listens to you, he's always calm and collected and just an all around good person. He is our go to guy for our property needs.
Chris helped us find, make an offer, and finalize the sale of our new home within 30 days! Yay! He is very knowledgeable about the process and kept us apprised through each step. We really appreciate everything that he has done and are excited to be able to live in our new home. I definitely recommend Chris and will contact him for any future real estate needs. Thanks Chris!
Chris helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first home within a matter of weeks. He was so easy to work with and so communicative throughout the whole process. He kept us updated and in the loop very frequently and explained every little detail to us to make sure we were informed of everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase their first home!
Chris did an awesome job on marketing our house! He not only marketed our house nearby but all over the Bay Area. It was on the market for only 6 days and we received multiple offers immediately! He was very professional and honest with us through the whole process! Our house is sold because Chris made it happen! Thank you Chris!
Chris is a consummate professional. He has the entire home buy-sell process streamlined and not only gets the job done, but he gets it done efficiently! If I had a question, he always responded quickly and that was much appreciated. If you are looking for someone to give you honest answers during your home buying-selling journey, call Chris!
Our experience with Chris has been phenomenal! His level of expertise and responsiveness helped us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He made himself available to us and worked around our schedules and making sure all our questions were answered. He has definitely exceeded our expectations!
Chris was proactive, understanding, and always available for any questions. He made sure our previous deal was closing and made sure our purchase went smooth. He was very knowledgeable of the area and what was a good fit for our family. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris.
Chris was excellent to work with. He was responsive to our questions and assisted us throughout the whole process, including all the inspections and other parts that came with buying the house. It felt like he was looking out for us and had our best interests at heart.
Chris was there every step of the way and was always available to answer any questions we had. He worked around the clock to find us a perfect home all within our budget.I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy a home.
Chris, words can’t explain how excited I am about my home. You made my home buying experience smooth. You and your team made me feel very welcome and made sure I received and understood everything that was happening step by step. I would highly recommend you!
Chris Luna is the best. He was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all the questions we have. We will definitely recommend him to all our friends and family. Thank you for helping us find our new home. More power to you and God Bless.
He’s very professional. Response immediately when we have questions. He always follows up and kept us updated on what’s going on. He made this very stressful transaction into an easy one. We appreciate his professionalism.
