Testimonials

Chris Stafford and Terry Wright are exceptional Realtors. They took the stress out of selling our home in an intense market. Being out of the city we had concerns about coordinating inspections and any issues that might arise. Chris and Terry were stars, and took charge of the inspections and vendors, handling everything efficiently, and keeping us up to date at all times. Very knowledgeable about the area and market, they were direct and honest, giving excellent advice and left nothing to guess work. Professional in every aspect, and I don’t say that lightly, Chris and Terry simply made us comfortable. We were extremely satisfied, and grateful to have found these gentlemen who made the process of selling our home seamless and stress free.

I do not live in San Francisco so when I wanted to sell my family home in S.F. I asked a friend, that was also a realtor, to help me.. She did a shout out to business partners in S.F. and Terry and Chris’s name popped up several times as being the most competent and helpful agents in the city.  I interviewed them, found them to be very friendly, well informed about the area and eager to help with an extensive list of resources. They advised me to do some minor improvements, painting in and out, repairing damaged floors, etc. They also advised me against spending any more money due to its age, “no staging is necessary”, which was especially nice to hear.  They arranged and facilitated all of the work to be done at the house.  That was incredibly helpful as I do not live in the area. I had an update every step of the way, which I really appreciated.   Terry and Chris made a recommendation for the sales price, which I thought was very reasonable.  Apparently everyone else thought it was as well.  I sold it in days, no contingencies, more than 50% over asking.  We were all shocked and very happy.  I highly recommend them.

Chris and Terry were recommended to us by a friend and they were absolutely fantastic! They were very professional, available, and helped answer all of our 1st time home buyer questions. They walked us through the process and were very fast with disclosures and offers. For our first offer we decided super last minute to put it in and Chris & Terry did everything super quick to get the offer in for review.
 
I would highly recommend them to anyone buying/selling in San Francisco. They had a great sense of the market and knew exactly how much things were selling for which is incredibly helpful in the Bay Area. They really made us feel like we were in the search process together and even after our purchase they’ve provided great references and help to get us started since we’re so new to the entire process.
 
I cannot recommend them enough, seriously so grateful to have found them as realtors!!

Chris and Terry were recommended to me by our friend who is a local realtor. I did not know the San Francisco realty market. They were fantastic and pleasure  to work with when we bought our first condo. When we decide to buy another one we reached out to them and again had a great experience. They continue to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable regarding the market and the nuances that are needed to navigate through the process. With their expert help and guidance, again, we were able to buy what we wanted on very favorable  terms. They made be the process easy and I do not think that we would’ve accomplished getting our place without their help.  I highly recommend Chris and Terry for anyone who is interested in a property in San Francisco.

William N. – Buyer

I listed my SF Condo with Chris and Terry during a difficult selling period and they aggressively marketed the unit and attracted several potential buyers. They were professional, responsive, and helpful throughout the process resulting in a satisfactory sale. I would certainly recommend Chris and Terry for your real estate activities.

Bob A. – Seller

My fiancée and I started our home search process a few months ago and are so glad that we decided to work with Chris and Terry.

They were the perfect agents who were incredibly knowledgeable of the SF real estate market and were well connected to other agents. Chris and Terry had our best interests in mind throughout the whole process; they never pushed us into a place we didn’t love and made us feel like they were on our team the whole time. When we finally closed on our home, they went above and beyond to celebrate our purchase.

We highly recommend Chris and Terry for anyone interested in buying a home in San Francisco.

Blake S. – Buyers

Have known Chris and Terry for 14 years. They helped me buy my first place when i didn’t know what i was doing and i just worked with them through the sale of that same condo. I always knew, for all 14 years, that I would call them when it was time to sell.  Chris and Terry work their tails off for their clients. They are incredibly well connected in SF and are highly respected. There is never pressure to take a place that is not a fit for the buyer and they understand market dynamics to know when to sell, how to attract buyers, etc. They make the process as easy as it can be.

Jon S. – Buyer and Seller

Chris and Terry helped our son and daughter in law find their first home. On their recommendation we thought Terry and Chris could help us find a pied de terre in the city.  We really didn’t know what we wanted or where to look. With patience they helped us narrow down areas and figure out what we needed and wanted. My husband and I have very different ideas about houses. Chris figured out quickly how to work with both of us. Between Covid and the fact that we live in Los Angeles it could have been challenging but they made it so easy.  We had to do the transactions and all the escrow electronically.  Terry made sure everything was in order.  They continue to be helpful after the sale with recommendations of service people we will need. They are wonderful company, really know the city and are experts that give great advice.

Brigette H. – Buyer

Chris and Terry are the consummate professionals. They think strategically, and execute tactically on every detail. They sold our Hayes Valley condo in four days — the very condo they found for us over 12 years ago. With us out of town, and unable to help at all, they managed the entire process, flawlessly and with regular updates. Beyond that, they are warm, gracious and excellent listeners. Without hesitation, I will work with them again.

Jonathan L. – Buyer and Seller

Chris and Terry were terrific to work with. They kept us informed every step of the way through the listing and sale of our deceased relative’s condominium and made things as easy for us as possible. Their knowledge was invaluable and their advice was solid.  I was able to sign all documents online, which was a huge time saver. Thanks!!

Kathy S. – Seller

Once again, Chris and Terry went above and beyond, helping us sell our home- 5 offers all above asking and a 10 day all cash close- DURING THE PANDEMIC! Thank you both so much for helping us through this roller coaster ride!

Tim L. – Buyer and Seller

I have worked with Chris and Terry twice now, both on buying and selling my house.  They were excellent on both sides of the transactions.  As a commercial real estate investor myself, I appreciate the value that can be created by working with good agents (and also the degradation that can occur from bad agents).  I am therefore extremely picky on who I will work with and my level of expectations are very high.  Chris and Terry are both sharp guys and understand the market and what buyers are looking for (which changed significantly in the time I owned by house).  They were responsive, jumped right in to manage the vendors and processes, and made my life much easier.  I highly recommend them and plan to work with them again when I buy my next house.

Ryan B. – Buyer and Seller

Chris and Terry were incredibly helpful as we went through our home-buying process. It took us nine months of searching before we made an offer, and they were extremely patient, never pushing us to settle for something we weren’t happy with. They spent a lot of time trying to better understand what we were looking for, and improving their filters and suggestions. They also steered us to a great mortgage broker who helped get a pre-approved loan with a great rate and very little hassle.

When we did find a place we were ready to buy, they sprang into action, guiding us through the house in person, making sure we were aware of what we were purchasing, and then collaborating to put together a clean offer that won us the property, over similar bidders with more complex deals.  We managed to close in less than three weeks, and even at the end of the process they thoughtfully sent along an information sheet with the numbers of the local utility and service companies, so we could easily update everything we needed to move in.

I’d highly recommend hiring Chris and Terry as your agents, they did a marvelous job for us.

Pete W. – Buyer

We are simply thrilled with the results Chris and Terry produced on the sale of our condo in San Francisco….almost 20% over asking price during the winter months.  Wow.

They are a terrific team exhibiting complementary strengths and we always felt we were in very capable hands.  We highly recommend Chris and Terry when the time comes to sell your San Francisco property.

Charles S. – Seller

Chris and Terry did a fantastic job of selling my condo in Pacific Heights in San Francisco.  From the beginning, when they met with me to discuss the sale and all the way through the close, they were organized and on top of every detail.  They kept me apprised of the process along the way and were always available to answer any questions that I had.  I would recommend them in a heartbeat for someone either looking to buy or looking to sell.

Jamie M. – Seller

I literally cannot say enough good things about Chris & Terry. They worked with us when we were looking to purchase in SF, and were great about staying in touch, finding properties, and just really being partners in our journey. I felt like I had friends working with me who really cared about the outcome for our family…friends that were highly knowledgeable and experts in their fields!

Recently Chris & Terry helped us with our condo sale in San Francisco. There were a million decisions to make, and they coordinated them all seamlessly. My panicked emails and text were always answered quickly, calmly, and with a touch of humor, that reassured me everything was going to be all right. I had very high standards for the staging and open houses – lucky for me, their standards were even higher! They worked within my tight budget and timeline, getting us a successful sale between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

My family will be forever grateful to Chris & Terry for their friendship and assistance in ensuring our condo ended up in good hands. I have met and worked with many agents over the years, and Chris & Terry are truly the best!

Rebecca A. – Seller

Chris and Terry are a great team that work really well together to help clients meet their needs and goals, and deal with difficult situations.  My situation working with them was a very difficult and tedious one. I was an administrator for a probate sale whereby one of the heirs were disgruntled and did not want the house sold. There were a lot of open resistance, delays and setbacks. Chris and Terry were very patient and committed to meet the needs that made the sale a success.  If they work this well in the midst of this kind of adversity. then there is no doubt about what their success would be in less cumbersome situations. They get my thumbs up recommendation.

Joseph G. – Seller

I am so grateful for Terry and Chris. I’ve used them four times now over the years- the purchase of my very first condo, and the latest of a small investment property.  In all cases, they made me aware of things to worry about (and to not worry about, just as important).  They connected me with useful professionals to help me in other areas like a leasing broker and attorney. And I definitely needed their help on the negotiating strategy and I strongly feel they helped me get to the right result.  I have continued to go back to them because, time after time, I realized how much I could count on their professionalism and customer service. You won’t regret choosing them as your brokers.

Jennifer L. – Buyer and Seller

Chris and his team are amazing to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy property in the long or short term.  My wife and I meet Chris probably more than 2 years ago.  We characterized ourselves as “opportunistic buyers”, we were looking for that perfect house in San Francisco that would fit both our family and budget.  Chris stayed in touch throughout the years without being pushy at all, he was always there for us and would check out properties whenever we asked him to. He would also gently propose alternatives and more importantly gave us his sincere and honest feedback on everything we looked at.  Well, we finally found our dream home and moved into it last month.  That is when we realized how amazing these guys are!  He has stayed in touch with us even after the move, making sure everything goes smoothly and providing help when things haven’t.  He has provided list of reliable movers, contractors, technicians, etc to make sure the house runs perfectly.  Chris is part of the family now!
