I am delighted to write this review for Chris Simons, an exceptional real estate agent in Park City, Utah. Chris recently helped me purchase an amazing townhouse, and I could not be more thrilled with the experience.
From the very beginning, Chris demonstrated a deep understanding of the Park City real estate market and a commitment to finding me the perfect property. She was attentive, responsive, and always went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of throughout the entire process.
One of the things I appreciated most about Chris was her ability to listen to my needs and preferences, and then tailor her recommendations accordingly. She was never pushy or aggressive, and instead always acted in my best interest.
Chris was also incredibly communicative and kept me updated every step of the way. She was always available to answer any questions I had, and she went out of her way to ensure that I felt informed and comfortable with every decision we made.
In short, Chris Simons is a top-notch real estate agent, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are in the market for a new property in Park City or the surrounding areas, you will not find a more dedicated, knowledgeable, and trustworthy agent.
Chris Simons was our agent for both the purchase of a condo in Park City and the sale of that same condo about 30 months later. For both the purchase and the sale we could not have imagined a better service from Chris from start to finish.
Chris is the type of professional who fully engages in each project and each client and who does that very proactively. We had questions (that were always answered completely and promptly) but we never once had to ask her to do something. Instead, Chris was alway out in front of the process, anticipating possible problems or needs and insuring they were addressed in a timely manner. Since we live out of state, we were totally dependent on her every step of the way and we were 110% pleased with her support.
As one example of her engagement and experience for the sale of our condo in Park City, based on her market research and knowledge, she recommended a listing price that was notably above the asking price that we suggested and which we thought would be a stretch. We agreed to list our property at the price she recommended and it sold essentially for that amount. That is just solid market knowledge and effective research applied for our benefit.
As another example, for the sale, she personally enhanced the property using some of her own staging items of decoration, cleaned a few items that the cleaning crew missed, arranged to get a couple of items repaired and generally insured the place put its best foot forward. That sort of support comes from her commitment to exceptional service and her self-driven engagement, not from anything we requested.
We cannot recommend Chris highly enough. Simply put, if you want an agent who is extremely experienced and also provides incredibly proactive support from the initial market research to the last closing document (and who doesn't?) Chris is your choice whether you are a buyer or a seller. You will not be disappointed in any respect.
We worked with Chris for over 2 years to find our perfect home in Park City. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the process. We found the perfect place and the negotiations were seamless. She helped us then market and sell our old place for our asking price. Great experience all around.
Chris was a very patient and understanding agent. We took a long time deciding on a home but she was sure to never pressure us to buy anything we were not convinced with. She has a great knowledge of contracts and was extremely helpful to us with getting to the closing.
Chris Simons is an extremely professional and dedicated realtor. When we began working with Chris, we quickly realized that she was listening to what our needs were and made recommendations to us, of what properties or areas we may consider. Once we identified properties, she guided us through the offer process, and was very thorough in representing us as her clients. Chris was excellent with her follow-up and meticulous with the process until after our final closing. We highly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for a true professional.

She did it again! I chose to use Chris again for another listing of property in Park City. I wanted to sell a rental property and Chris handled it beautifully. It is so pleasurable to do transactions with Chris because she is so organized and detail orientated. Thank you Chris for handling my sale!
What a pleasure the selling process was with Chris! I felt very calm during the transaction due to her expertise and attention to detail. Her recommendations for staging were spot on to increase the marketability of the space. She worked so hard at marketing and showing my home. I felt like I was her only concern. She never made me feel like she was too busy to listen to my concerns. Her suggestions during repairs and closing were invaluable. Thank you Chris for your professionalism and knowledge. It couldn't have been easier!
Chris did a tremendous job helping us with a recent vacant land transaction (our 2nd with her). We live out of state and Chris' communication was tremendous. When we did have an opportunity to look at land in person, we needed to move quickly and Chris moved everything off her calendar to ensure a quick turnaround on an offer and a consistent presence in negotiations. Finally, Chris' attention to detail helped us avoid some serious issues at close as she caught many mistakes made by the seller. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Chris again.
My wife and I relocated to Park City from Canada last summer, and rented a house for 1 year. When we decided to put down roots, we researched several area realtors who we could possibility work with to find us a home. We made an instant connection with Chris Simons and she immediately understood our requirements, and made several recommendations of target areas for our budget. We looked at a few houses, but quickly found the house that met our needs.
Chris was instrumental in the purchase of our home. Being new to the US, we were unfamiliar with the process of buying a home, getting a mortgage, making the offer, etc. She walked us through the process, and helped identify the right inspectors, lenders etc so that we could purchase the home. She is an excellent negotiator, and very thorough in making sure we understood each step of the process. We have purchased many homes in the past, and I've never worked with a realtor more dedicated to making sure our interests were represented, and that we fully understood each step. Chris worked very hard for us, and I'm sure she will work very hard for you.
In addition, she's just a lovely person. Super friendly, and likes to keep in touch with her clients. We enjoyed our time working with her and the friendship we built, and she will be our first call when we decide to move on in the future.
I highly recommend working with her if you are buying or selling - she will work hard to earn your trust and make sure you have a great buying or selling experience.
