If you are a Seller...
If you are a Buyer...
I sold my very first home with Chip and he was amazing to work with! I knew nothing about the process or what to expect but he made every step of the way understandable and stress free for me.
I was originally trying to rent out the house that I sold and Chip contacted me on behalf of one of his clients to see if I’d be interested in selling. At the time I wasn’t, but I knew that if I ever was that he’d be my guy! I watched him go above and beyond for not only that client but myself, as well.
10/10 recommend Chip Parmelly!
We were house hunting for a year and had gone through 2 other agents and several declined offers before making the switch to Chip and I am SO happy we did! He was VERY responsive and quick to drive over an hour to show us a home. He was very knowledgeable about things we should pay attention to in and outside the homes that could be concerns and was able to shed light on reasonable offers unlike our 2 previous agents. Within 2 weeks, we made an offer on our first home with Chip (it was a HIGH multi-offer situation) and our offer was accepted! He is full of recommendations for anything you might need and if he is unsure of something, he will take the time to gather the information. He was in constant communication with us and the seller's agent throughout the entire process. Paperwork was a breeze and he was able to explain and answer any questions we had! I highly recommend Chip for your buying and selling needs!
I was a first time homebuyer and Chip was a perfect fit for me. He made the whole process easy, he did not try to force any areas or properties on me. He listened 100% to what I was looking for and what I liked. He showed me the properties that was of interest to me and helped me narrow down on a perfect fit. He took care of all negotiations with the seller and got us a deal we felt very good with.
Chip was a great guy to work with. He was very responsive to me whenever I had any questions or concern he got back to me in a timely manner. He showed me about five houses on a Saturday around 6 PM in the afternoon which I thought was great most realtors do not like to show you around that time and he showed me five houses that day. We had a closing it went smoothly . I would definitely recommend chip to anyone in the market looking for a home.
Chip helped us move locally from Rockwall to Farmersville. He managed both the sale and purchase of our homes wonderfully and worked out the timing just right for us. He even helped us find a new moving company when things fell through with the company I chose. I look forward to working with him again. He will be my first call.
I recently bought and sold a house with Chip and had a great experience. He is a true professional. He knows a ton about our market and had solid advice for listing our existing home. He was always prompt to return our calls, emails, and texts. I am glad I went with Chip and would definitely recommend him.
He made everything easy! He was readily available to go see houses as soon as we needed to. He provided good information about the area and insight to homes as a first time home buyer.
We found Chip on topagents.com when we were moving from Omaha to Texas. Chip wasn't our first pick, but when our number one failed miserably to respond then handed us off to an equally unresponsive new agent, we gave Chip a call. We were not disappointed. He listens, he quickly discerns what houses fit your preferences, and is very knowledgeable and responsive. We liked him so much that when Mom moved to TX, we gave him a call without hesitation. And he delivered again. Chip becomes part of your new community. I can't say enough good things.
We met Chip at one of his Open Houses, told him what we were looking for, and he immediately began directing listings to us. This was a refreshing display of customer service, after having dealt with a number of agents who apparently lost interest in helping us when we didn't snap up one of their first two or three offerings -- in a "hot market"! Chip met us at the homes and lots we were interested in, always on time and with whatever information we requested. He also always returned phone calls and messages in a timely manner -- again, this was something other agents seemed incapable of doing. If you're looking for an agent who will help find a home that YOU want, not one that HE wants to sell you, who operates in a professional, efficient, and cooperative manner, be comfortable in calling Chip. In the end, we were pleased to purchase a lot in our preferred area.
Chip helped me and my Mom find a nice home into which I could retire. He is the ultimate professional who offers a wonderful level of comfort and trust. My home area was in Tarrant County, so a tad off his usual path east of Dallas, but he accommodated my needs with efficient timeliness. The entire DFW area is NOT too big for him to handle, that is for sure! He also exhibited a very open, honest, and homey demeanor, made my Mom and I feel very comfy and secure. We felt assured he was attentive to our needs, and not his own designs... great work ethic! One just cannot say enough good things about Chip... kinda wish there were folks like him in all avenues of life! Long story short, just engage this gentlemen to work for you; you will achieve happiness!
Can’t say enough about Chip. We’ve done three deals together now, and he has always been on top of his game. He knows his stuff, knows how to work with people in order to make everything smooth and effortless. He has great people skills, always keeps your interests #1 and works his best to make sure you get what you want.
I won’t hesitate to use Chip again, give him a call and he’ll take care of you.
Chip was awesome in handling my home purchase. He helped narrow down a house within a time frame and kept all his promises. He's very knowledgeable around the DFW area. Chip made my home purchase smooth and effortless. I would trust Chip wholeheartedly in any real estate transaction. He values his customers and it really showed throughout the entire process. Reach out to him and he'll surely reach back out to you and get you the house you've always wanted.
Thank you Chip!
We have worked with Chip for over 9 years! He has helped us sell two homes and buy two homes during this time. He is simply the best! He listens, he understands, he gives sound real estate advice and most of all he is just a great human being. We don't plan to buy or sell for another 3-4 years, but when we do, Chip is the ONLY realtor we will work with.
Chip went above and beyond what i have seen any other realtor do! Any time I had a question or needed anything done he didn't hesitate to help. Was always very fast to respond to any question I had. He is at the top of his profession!!
Chip went above and beyond in the buying and selling process of both my houses. He was helpful, attentive, kind and made sure I got everything I needed. He is very knowledgeable and works for YOU. Too knotch realtor!
This guy is amazing! We have used him with three buying/selling of our homes. We highly recommend him to everyone! Not only did he help us buy our first home, he helped us sell it and sell my father in laws home when he passed. Then he helped us find a great builder for our new home then 13 years later helped us sell that one. He is honest and walked us through the whole process.
Chip was absolutely wonderful. He helped us get our first home in Greenville, TX. We would highly recommended to anyone looking to buy or sell their house.
I’ve used Chip for many years now to purchase and sell multiple houses in the Dallas area, both for my primary residences and rental properties. Chip is personable, knowledgeable of the area, and quick to respond to my inquiries, which in this market is important. Chip is still my broker and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking.
Chip did an awesome job in helping us sell our house in Forney. Right now the market is very competetive and Chip was able to market our house and place it under contract in under 4 days. Not only did he go that, but we ended up selling for more than we thought we would. As first time sellers we had no clue what the process was like and Chip walked us through it step by step. We had some troubles with the buyer's lender and Chip stepped in and took control of the situation. If we ever decide to move back to the metroplex, we will definitely be calling on Chip!
Have been working with Chip for over a year to find deals for my rental portfolio. He has been a great asset and very knowledgable about the area. Found a few deals even in this super hot dfw market. He will not hound you during times when not actively looking for deals, but he will always keep you in the loop when you are searching. I have recommended Chip to friends and family regardless of what type or price property they are looking for and he always comes through.
Chip was amazing. He helped us purchase our house in Rockwall, closing in about a month, and he helped us sell our house in Mesquite in 3 days. We are very glad to recommend Chip to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
Renell and James, Thanks so much for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure working with you. Take care
Chip is a consummate professional. We worked with Chip for some time to find the right home for our family and Chip was patient, knowledgeable of the entire area and always was willing and happy to show us anything we wanted to see. Chip's advice and expertise were incredibly helpful to us and our family. We found a house even better than we had hoped in a very hot market, most of it was due to Chip.
I would recommend Chip Parmelly as a serious realtor in the area as we were looking in Forney and Sunnyvale. His knowledge of Mesquite, Garland and Rockwall was helpful as he had some knowledge of the area to assist in comparing our choices. Chip was a really patient in helping us with recommending and viewing multiple relevant properties in the area. After we decided on the home we wanted to pursue, Chip Parmelly's attention to detail and his experience were key in negotiations. He was respectful of our time. You can also tell he is a good father and family man. His work ethic is as good as his word.
Chip was a great Realtor to work with. He was extremely professional with us as we looked at several homes throughout Rowlett, and showed us a much more broad spectrum of things that we might need to be looking for beyond cosmetics. He always was able to meet with us on our time, and handled every bit of the process for us in an extremely quick manner. He provided knowledge to us that saved us money on taxes, as well as provided us with suggestions to save quite a bit of money when buying the home. He is an extremely knowledgeable and professional Realtor and I am thoroughly pleased with the service that he provided for us. My fiance and I love our new home!
I would recommend Chip to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home.
Chip helped me find the perfect home! Right from the start he was very responsive (called on a Saturday evening right after my initial inquiry) and remained easy to get in touch with throughout the process. Not only did he pick the right type of home to show, but also helped with the back and forth offer process and knew where we could push and get something in return. This home purchase and closure had a very tight time window and Chip made sure we kept things moving.
I'd recommend Chip to any of my friends that are looking for a new home in the area.
Chip spent hours on end for us as we searched for homes. His patience with us is really why I knew immediately that he was the guy you wanted on your side when searching for a home. We tried to get a deal done a year ago and it didn't work out but here we are a year later and got a deal done. We went back to him for a reason as he periodically checked in on us and made sure he met our needs.
I was relocating to the Dallas area and needed a house fast. I worked with a few "highly recommended" Realtors in the area that were supposed to be great. Unfortunately they relied on me to find houses which was tough to do from Florida. I worked with Chip and was willing to look at as many houses as it took, no matter how many hours were involved, until I found the right one. We did find the right house and closed in 20 days to meet all my deadlines. Thanks for all your help.
We Loved Chip!!! And here's why:
Chip helped us sell our home in the country near Greenville Texas. He also helpe us buy a house in Rowlett Texas. It only took about 11 weeks to list and sell our house in Greenville and move in our house in Rowlett Texas.
The rural Greenville area was a difficult area to sell a home as it was difficult to compare homes for pricing that were comparable in square footage and acreage. He gave us ideas to prepare for the house for showing so that it would present all the space available giving the potential buyer a realistic view. He took outstanding and beautiful pictures that really showed the house, backyard, and pool in a realistic and appealing manner. It looked exactly as it was in real-life and gave the potential buyer a genuine idea of how it looked. He called us every few days to discuss the progress of showings and gave us feedback from each potential buyer that came to look. When an offer was made on our house, he assisted us in communicating with the buyer making negotiaions very easy.
In buying our new home, he was assertive and aggressive in making an offer as there were 6+ other offers for the house we wanted on the first day it was listed. He stayed very late in the evening the day the house was listed to ensure that we made a competitive offer. He kept us informed on the progress almost daily.
Chip spent massive amounts of time with phone calls regarding updates, paperwork and feedback. All communication was made at convenient times for us. We would not have gotten our house Rowlett in this market, if it wasn't for Chip!
We had a wonderful experience with Chip and really enjoyed working with him. He was postive, up-beat, and realistic. We loved him so much that we look forward to staying in contact with him in the future!
We are relocating from out of state. We were referred to Chip by a very satisfied client. Chip assisted us with the numerous challenges of buying a home remotely.
I believe our sucess was due to Chip's ability to listen. Chip made the effort to listen carefully to our objectives and had the skill and experience to guide us effectively in our search. Once we found our home, his knowledge and dilligence made our purchase as smooth and trouble free as possible. It is always a pleasure to work with a true professional - and Chip Parmelly is just that. We would recommend him without hessitation!
We listed a home outside of Royse City in January of 2013. We interviewed three Realtors before choosing Chip. We chose Chip because of how prepared he was when he arrived for the interview as well as hi charisma and attention to details.
Shortly after we entered into contract, Chip showed our home for the Rockwall and Royse City Tour of Homes. We were awarded some very valuable feedback, regarding how our home showed and pricing, as a result of the tours.
Once our home went under contract, Chip was there every step of the way ensuring that we were getting the best out of the contract and that our best interests were championed.
We also chose to have Chip represent us when we bought a home. We looked at roughly 5 homes before we decided to make an offer. Chip asked that we let him negotiate the price and we ended up getting the home for less than what we would have offered (kudos)!
Where Chip really shined was after the deal closed. Our new home was left with patches in the walls (182 of various sizes to be exact). Three different professional painters said that the whole home would have to be painted and it could not be touched-up. We went back and forth with the previous owners and Chip took on the role of a liaison. We ended up reaching an agreement that was very fair and Chip was there for all of it.
If you are thinking about hiring a Realtor and it is not Chip, at least make contact and give him the chance speak with you; you will be glad you did.
Guys,I wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful review but also for choosing me as your agent! You were great to work with and I am glad everything worked out on the paint issue. I look forward to seeing you both and the house soon!Take care,Chip
I was looking to buy a house for my dad and called Chip about one I had seen. Within in a few hours Chip was able to get me into the house and look around. It was a really good house and just what I was wanting for my dad and by that afternoon Chip had the paperwork ready and I was able to make a formal offer on the house. Unfortunately I was not the only offer or the lowest offer but Chip went back to the seller whose family had owned the home for 50 years and explained why I was buying the home and I feel that was a big help in the seller agreeing to accept my offer on the house. From there Chip made sure everything went really smooth from getting it inspected to the final closing. Thanks again Chip for all your help!
Chip Parmelly is the ultimate professional real estate agent. Diligent, resourceful, caring, and most of all creative, Chip helped us find the perfect house for our daughter, and was so helpful that we couldn't have been more appreciative. Chip spent hours with us to be certain that the house met our needs, was a great buy, and continued his efforts until the deal was closed and every detail taken care of. Whenever we need a realtor, Chip Parmelly will be our first and only choice.
Chip has an excellent knowledge of the market. He is very enthusiastic, diligent, reliable and resourceful realtor. When we do not know something about the area, we call Chip and he guide us. We still call him over a year after we close the house with his assistance. We have dealt with realtors for several years and Chip has been the best.
I worked with Chip on finding my first home which is not an easy process. He walked me through it every step of the way. He referred me to a great loan officer that helped me get the loan I needed. I was impressed with his knowledge of the area and I now have the home I wanted. I would highly recommend Chip Parmelly to anyone looking for an experienced realtor.
Chip, was great to work with he was alway willing to meet us anywhere at anytime, when we met Chip we were in a transition moving from Michigan to Texas, He worked with us every step of the way! He was a great and I would recommend him to anyone.
Thanks so much for choosing me to represent you and also for the review! It means wonders to me!Chip
I have worked with Chip on a regular basis for the past several years. He is honest, friendly, patient, hardworking, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. These are just a few of the attributes that making working with Chip a pleasure. He really cares about his customers and their needs. He is a great person to work with and will make sure you have excellent representation.
Diane,Thanks so much for the review. If anyone is looking for an awesome lender, this is the one!Chip
After having spent a lot of time (several months), energy and resources on trying to find a piece of property in East Texas, we encountered a problem. We could not find a realtor to continue to work with us, due to the amount of travel and distance between properties. We met Chip after requesting to be shown a property that he had listed. When speaking with him, we explained the difficulties we were having keeping a realtor involved, and the distances required to view these properties. He realized we were serious about purchasing property w/ acreage and joined in our search for that perfect piece of property. We spent many a Saturday or Sunday w/ Chip walking and researching different properties. When we finally found the property that we wanted to purchase and place under contract, there were complications. It was a short sale and all ready under contract. After discussing our options and the process involved with Chip, we placed a backup contract on the property. If not for Chip's knowledge, expertise, experience, professionalism and ability to communicate with the listing agent, we probably would have walked away. Luckily for us the first contract dropped out. Chip went to work pushing to get the short sale process under way. Any obstacles or concerns were brought our attention immediately and addressed quickly. Chip was instrumental in helping us find professionals necessary to do any inspections necessary for closing requirements. We closed in two months. After signing the closing papers there was an issue, that would not allow us to take possession of the property immediately. Again Chip stepped up to bat and found a solution to the problem, so we could begin the move in process, while the issue was being resolved. We had waited 30 years to get back to the country. If Chip had not been in our corner, we would have never made our dream a reality. Thank you Chip for patience, perseverance, positive attitude and professionalism. I would and have recommended Chip to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate. And would not hesitate to use his services in the future.
Deb, you are the best! Thanks so much for allowing me to work with you and Bill.Take care and enjoy the ranch!Chip
Our experience with Chip was great! He helped us both buy and sell. He was very responsive and helped us immensely along the way. He was patient with us in trying to find the right house in a market that was challenging. He negotiated all of our terms and was opening to hearing what we had to say. We will definitely work with him in the future.
Chip did an absolutely fantastic job selling our house in Lucas. He worked diligently with the buyer's agent to make sure that all of the information was correctly passed to the buyer to give them the peace of mind to buy from out of state.
This is not the first property he has sold for me. In fact, we have used Chip for multiple transactions for both buying and selling in the North Texas area.
He is genuine, knowledgeable, and truly puts your best interest at heart. I highly recommend Chip as a seller's agent and he is an excellent buyer's agent as well!
Justin,I greatly appreciate the wonderful review and wanted to say thanks again for your confidence in me as your agent of choice! Thanks as well for the referrals!
I highly recommend Chip as a realtor. He did a great job helping my wife and I find a house. We were all over the place trying to figure out what we wanted, but Chip hung in there and showed as a lot of homes. He was very professional and informative throughout the process and also a wealth of information for finding good contractor services (lenders, inspectors, repairs, etc). He is also a heck of a good guy.
Dave and Rose,Apprecaite the review and hope you love your home! Look forward to seeing it and you both soon.
My name is Tanya I just recently purchased a new home. Chip was amazing, he was so honest and very helpful. He was patient with me. He was not in a rush to just sell me any house. He was determined to find me the house i wanted and i loved. If i wanted to show family members he met me over there as soon as i needed. It was an awesome expierence working with Chip Parmelly. If i ever buy another home i will DEFINETLY be calling Mr. CHIP. He works his best to be available when ever you need him. When people i know are looking for a home to buy or sell i will be giving them his number! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHIP PARMELLY..... BEST REALITOR EVER!!!!!!
Tanya,Thanks again for the wonderful review! You don't know how much it means to me to have clients such as yourself that I truly enjoy working for!
This is the second time we have used Mr. Parmelly to purchase a home in Plano Texas.
Chip continues to exceed all of our expectations and more importantly he always looks out for your best interests. In my opinion his passion, dedication to customer satisfaction, and experience puts him at the top of this industry.
If you are interested in purchasing a home within the DFW area I would highly recommend first speaking with Chip. I also give him permission to share my contact information to anyone interested in learning more about our experience and Chip as our Realtor of choice.
Many thanks Chip!
Guys,Thanks again for the review and I look forward to visitng soon!
My wife and I just purchased our second home. As with any home purchase, there were some challenges and some difficult decisions along the way which we had to overcome. Chip seemed like the one stop shop with helping to resolve these as they came along. He put us in contact with several people which were able to help us with everything from financing to the home inspection. All of which we had equally as great of an experience as we did with Chip.
Beyond this, Chip was extremely accomodating in meeting us at the house multiple times before we closed so that we could line up contractors to install hard wood flooring and ceiling fans. Throughout the entire experience, there was never any pressure and his advice that he did offer made sense and you could tell was formed through many years of experience. It was extremely valuable when understanding how the market was moving when we were trying to decide whether to rent out our current home or whether to sell it. My only regret is that we cannot buy more houses so that we can work with Chip further. I can guarantee that when we do make another move in real estate, Chip will be the first one we call.
I wanted to thank you once again for using me as yor agent and almost as importantly, posting a review about my services!
We just purchased our third home. Chip would tell you that I can be very demanding due to some previous experiences I have purchasing homes. In the past, it has always seemed like I could never reach our agent when I needed to. Chip was always there to answer every question I had in a timely manner. I was extremely nervous about this purchase due to the economy. Chip spoke directly with my broker and both of them were always upfront and honest with me as to how everything was progressing. My husband and I had no intention on putting an offer in on a home the first trip out looking, but Chip spent the entire day with us and showed us 15 homes! We have busy schedules, so that was impressive! The process was quick, and stress free. He knew every party involved which made it so easy! Thank you so much Chip, we would definately refer you, and wish you the best! We are enjoying our new home!
My wife and I sought to purchase our first home this spring and Chip was recommended to me by a close friend who had used Chip's service last year. Knowing my friend like I do (since childhood) I knew that if he recommended Chip then it was a no brainer to contact him. Throughout the process Chip exhibited all of the traits that my wife and I had hoped to find in a realtor- forthcoming and honest, consultative vs. sales approach, deep knowledge of the process and well connected to others that would prove useful (e.g. home home inspector, mortgage companies, home insurance, etc.). He listened to our needs, wants and situation and guided us through the process with ease and responsiveness. I will gladly recommend Chip to anyone I know.
I wanted to thank you once again for the opportunity of allowing me to work with and for you but also for letting people know of your experience!
Chip is prompt, knowledgeable, thorough, hardworking, and a genuinely thoughful and caring realtor. Chip has been our realtor a few times over the years. He's not just trying to make a sell. He genuinely cares about your needs. You simply can't get a better realtor. I know we will continue to use Chip as our one and only realtor. We have, and will continue to refer him to all those looking to buy or sell a home.
We were only in the Dallas area for a few days, and asked Chip to schedule showings of about 10 homes in the Heath and Rockwall areas. Chip was very prepared, having good background information on each of the homes. He pointed out good and bad points of the homes, with an understanding of what we were interested in. He is very knowledgable of the area. He took time to drive us around, showing us all of the points of interest. Although we haven't yet made a decision, we plan on using Chip when we are ready to buy.
Chip is without a doubt the most genuine, hard-working and professional real estate agent I can imagine. For those who do not care about our personal story, here's what we love about Chip in no particular order:
1. Prompt 2. Respectful 3. NOT a sleazy salesman 4. Amazingly hard-working 5. A really nice guy 6. Knows his shtuff 7. A family man 8. Great communication skills 9. Knows how to listen 10. Has your best interest always in mind. I'm sure there's more, just go contact him already.
Here's our story: My soon to be fiancee and I were first time home buyers looking for a fixer upper, when I stumbled on Chip at Zillow. He has great ratings, so I figured this is the one. I was right. He immediately corresponded via e-mail and phone to ask for what we wanted. He sent us a list of many homes instantly for us to peruse through. We found a few that we liked in the pictures so we asked Chip to arrange a showing on a holiday at 10AM. No problem for Chip, he is there for you, arriving early exhibiting a high degree of professionalism. Here are the fixer uppers you asked for was what Chip should have said but he humbly kept his mouth shut as we observed in terror what a fixer upper really looks like. He didn't try to talk us out of it, he showed us everything we asked for, pointing out flaws for us and offering solutions to fix them. Just like bringing your Dad with you, Chip offers warm guidance without feeling like he is working for money while you are with him.
After 3 houses of horror, my fiancee and I made the decision to move our price range higher and do less work. Chip didn't have to mention it. He let us find what we really wanted without telling us what we wanted. Once we made our own choice, Chip delivered by calling several properties to arrange showings on the spot. We only expected to see 3 houses this day, but Chip managed to arrange at least 4-5 additional showings. The difference was night and day. He perceived what we wanted, showed it to us, and our enthusiasm was brimming.
It was not long before we saw the house that was "the one". We knew it was under contract from another buyer, but looked at it anyway to see what our upper end would look like. It looked perfect, but it was already spoken for, so we moved on to see the others. All the while Chip checked on other properties for us, suddenly Chip declares, "Guys, the property that you love has just come back on the market. The other deal failed". We were freaking out. Everything in the universe was aligning on this day: An angelic real estate agent, delivers the perfect house within 4 hours when it wasn't going to happen in the first place.
We went back to Chip's office (which he has in any city you are located) and Chip went right to work telling us to go get some lunch. While we feasted in celebration, Chip slaved away researching comparables, getting paperwork together, and being ready for us. We arrived after lunch and Chip made sure we were absolutely informed. We never expected to be buying a home on the first day, but Chip found us what we wanted. He is attuned to your desires, whether you tell him or not. He didn't push us into it, we called all the shots. He played devil's advocate the whole time, explaining the pro's and con's of all our decisions. Imparting his real estate wisdom on us.
Here we are the day after and we have negotiated the seller down to the price we wanted, and are bagging ourselves a beautiful home!!! Trust us, Chip will deliver.
I had just been transferred from Los Angeles to Dallas, and the thought of selling our home in LA and finding a new one in an area that we knew absolutely nothing about was daunting. On doing a search for Dallas area realtors from our home in LA, we stumbled on to Chip's information. He had previous ties to Southern California and was able to work with us in finding a local Texas community that was similar to what we were used to in LA. During the process of selling our home and buying a home in the Rockwall area, we had to go in to the new home buying process with contingencies, based on the closing of the home in LA. We made an offer on a house we thought was perfect, way bigger than what we could ever hope to get before. The owners accepted the offer Chip presented, we gave them a promisary deposit, and then the house in LA fell out of escrow, the purchaser was not able to secure his loan. That left us in a pinch with the sellers were were working with in Rockwall. Chip handled all of the details, we were given an extension to sell the house in LA, and Chip even worked with our agent in California to get the house sold. Unfortunately, our house sat unsold for a couple of months. We lost the house in Rockwall, but Chip was able to get our deposit back, and he continued to work to get us in a home in the Rockwall area. He called out agent in California frequently to find out the status of the sale. The house finally went back in to escrow with a new buyer, and Chip coordinated all of the details and timing with our agent to get the timing just right for us to go and find another house to make a solid offer on. He came back to us with a big grin on his face and told us he found the perfect house in Rowlett, the adjacent town to Rockwall. We were not very happy about it until he told us that due to a quirky county line, the new house was on the Rockwall county side of the line and we would still be in the Rockwall school district. We took a look at the house and made an offer almost immediately. We ended up with a very nice house and saved about $40,000 on the purchase price from what we were going to pay on the house that fell out!! Chip was a rock during the entire process, and since buying and selling a home is stress enough if everything goes perfectly, we were very fortunate to have had him as our realtor with all the problems we had on selling our old house. If anybody were to ask me for a reference on a Real Estate professional, I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Chip. He's that rare customer service guy that you can only read about from days gone by.
This is a lengthy review, because there are so many positive things to say about Chip. Chip is absolutely the best! He helped me purchase my first home, coming from out of state, by myself, completely unfamiliar with the area, and having no local contacts. Using the reviews on Zillow, I chose three different Realtors and made initial contact with all of them. Chip's communication skills were far above the rest. He took the examples of houses I had already chosen online, and added several more properties for consideration. It was clear that he understood my priorities, and worked within my preferences and price range to locate the best options available. I was very comfortable working with Chip - I never felt like I was being hounded or pressured, but at the same time, he was always very prompt and attentive.
Chip made the process of touring the houses very clear and manageable. I did not know exactly what to expect, and was not even certain that I was ready to purchase right away. He was excellent about passing on his knowledge and experience, educating me, and offering suggestions about the kinds of things that would be important to observe. I never felt that he tried to convince or *sell* me about anything that I didn't find appealing. He answered every question I had, he was honest and direct, and helped me feel like I could make educated assessments of what I was seeing, rather than just walking through and judging whether it looked *nice* nor not.
By the end of Day 1, it was clear that the first house we had toured was by far, my favorite. Chip suggested we revisit it, since it had been the first one, so that I could confirm whether I still liked it as much, or maybe with a little more experience, it wouldn't seem quite as good as I remembered. He made several calls to arrange a second showing, and even rescued the appointment after the sellers initially cancelled. Ultimately, I decided that it was the right house for me, and the next morning, he prepared an offer to present. Throughout the afternoon, Chip negotiated on my behalf, and by the end of the Day 2, my offer had been accepted. I felt I could fully trust Chip to represent my concerns, and while remaining friendly and relaxed, he was persistent, and accomplished a fair deal for me.
After the offer was accepted, Chip continued to help with the inspection and other details that were more challenging, because I was still out of state. Chip was also able to recommend several contractors who could provide services such as painting, handyman tasks, plumbing, etc. He visited the property more than once, assisted with measurements for the major appliances, and sent pictures of some repairs that were being done. He knew when to intervene for critical items, to protect my interests and to make sure I would be satisfied at the end of the process.
I will be closing on my house next week. I feel so lucky to have had Chip's help. He really cares about doing things right, and will not hesitate to go above and beyond to make sure his clients are satisfied. I highly recommend Chip to anyone who is buying or selling a home - he is excellent!
