Chris Sidwell did an amazing job for us. We were buying a home in a different state from where we were selling, and he was able to make the process so easy. He helped us set up and attended inspections in our absence. He helped us understand the Utah housing market and represented our interests in negotiations. Even after closing he had continued to help us with important transitions to our new home. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, honest, and hard-working agent, Chris is a great choice!
Our family has the pleasure of working with Chris Sidwell to sell our treasured family "cabin" in Summit County. Chris had strong local knowledge of the area and current market conditions. He gave helpful suggestions to get our property ready to sell and had excellent communication throughout the process. We had a few family members involved in the transaction and he was very patient to take questions and input from all of us. During the negotiation of the contract, Chris protected our interests and did a wonderful job finding smart resolutions to several issues that popped up. We are so happy with the overall result and cannot recommend Chris highly enough.
I would highly recommend Chris as an agent to work with. He is friendly, knowledgable, and thorough.
He was always available to answer all my questions concerning the all the processes of selling my cabin.
Chris is amazing! He was always available for questions, took me through so many houses on the 10 month journey to find the right one. He kept me updated on market trends as I searched and didn’t let me give up. I’m so grateful that I had someone I could trust though this difficult process. I always knew Chris had my best interests in mind through every step of the process of buying my first home!
I would highly recommend Chris Sidwell for purchasing and selling a home. He brings a lot to the table and had my best interest in mind through the entire process. Secondly Summit Sotheby's just enhanced the experience as well!
Chris Sidwell is an outstanding real estate agent who helped me with my recent purchase. He is professional, works hard, understands the business and his follow-up is flawless. Chris made buying/closing on a house easy and stress free. I would highly recommend him for your future real estate needs.
There is no one like Chris, hands down. From day one he is ready to take your goals and vision and run with them. Each time we have had Chris as our agent, we have been able to close on "I can't believe we got this" type homes. He knows what he is doing and he gets how people work, a combo that is dynamite.
Not only is he a great realtor, Chris has become a dear friend. His relationships don't end with the closing of a house, they exist far beyond that. I'll never forget eight months after closing on our last house Chris was on our doorstep with a pie for Thanksgiving.
If you go with Chris, you don't have to worry. Simple as that.
As a first time home buyer, my husband and I felt all of the nerves going into the market (especially right now!). We wanted an agent that would have the experience to help us know what to look for and what questions to ask. Chris was that guy. He walked us through each step, was very responsive as we voiced concerns or asked questions, made time for us, and he brilliantly negotiated our terms on our behalf. Chris is a great agent to have in your corner, we were sure glad to have him in ours!
We were first time home buyers and Chris de-mystified the whole experience for us. Admittedly we don't have a lot of other real estate purchase experience to compare to but Chris was such an advocate and worked the process from start to finish. I am confident we would not have got our home if we had any other agent.
Chris has helped us buy our first home and sell our first home. We have always been impressed with his professionalism and knowledge in realty. We felt like he always had our best interest in mind and that he would have our back when buying and selling. 10/10 would recommend!
While in Utah recently, we met Chris Sidwell for the first time. He showed us some properties and helped us find a home that met our interests and needs. He was professional, responsible, thorough and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others. He was an excellent real estate agent.
We would worked with Chris on the purchase of our first home. He was quick to respond to our needs, set us up with showings immediately, and was incredibly knowledgable about home buying. He educated us on the important things to look for in older homes, benefits of buying new homes, helped us understand what to expect during the purchase process, and helped us to understand the financial pros and cons of owning a home. He is incredibly honest and attentive and will forever be our realtor. He's the best around!
From the first home purchase to the last sale, Chris and Jeff have absolutely set an exemplary standard for real estate service. My experience has been so great, that I have continuously referred friends to them over the years. Keep up the great work!
Chris is the best! As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were doing, but Chris was there every step of the way. He answered questions in a way we could understand, worked closely with the sellers agent and our lender, made sure everything happened on time, and kept us informed every step of the way. I have no doubt that Chris was the only person who could have gotten us into our dream home.
Chris is an amazing real estate agent! I've worked with him on several transactions and always been 100% impressed. He's professional, hard working and always looks out for his clients best interests.
We used Chris Sidwell when we bought our first house and Chris' incredible wealth of experience (his family is in the real estate business, and it seems like he grew up in the industry) was invaluable to us.
He was a font of information on what to do, what to look for, and how to manage all the many, many details of home buying. Moreover, we found him incredibly patient, and he seemed genuinely to care, as much as we did, that he found us a great house. I have no idea how he has any personal life at all, because he was seemingly always available and always excited to go look at houses. I think we would've been quite lost without him, and I could not be more glad to have someone so steady and experienced on our team.
We have worked with Chris Sidwell on many transactions and he is awesome! He is responsive and markets the properties in a professional way. His research and analysis was so vital in order for us to get the most out of the properties we were selling and buying. We look forward to many more opportunities to work with Chris!
Chris assisted us with the selling and purchasing of our last homes. Having worked with other realtors in the past, I dare say Chris is the BEST! Chris understands the market, listens to your concerns, and goes above and beyond to make sure that home buying/selling process is as stress free as possible. Thank you Chris!
Chris helped my family sale our sisters house. My sister passed away and I was made the executor of her estate. With so many things to do after her passing I was relieved to have Chris in charge of selling her house. It was just one less thing that I had to worry about. His advice was spot on about counter offers and his ability to get the most money for her estate. I am so grateful that he was our agent!
Chris was very easy and comfortable to work with in finding a home for my family. He was very attentive and responsive to our questions and concerns. Chris seems to have an abundance of knowledge and experience in the real estate world.
