I interviewed several agents to handle the sales of my mother’s estate properties. Chris was incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate in the Fan District and gave such detailed answers to my questions that I felt he was the agent to handle the sales. Chris seemed to anticipate problems that might come up and suggested solutions in case they did. Chris was always available, got back promptly and handled the negotiations for the 2 adjacent properties on Floyd Avenue. I would say that Chris and I were very often on the same page in the negotiations so it helped things go smoothly in spite of some difficult negotiations with the buyer.
This Guy is Phenomenal! Heard about him through an old friend of mine and in that same breath, Travis took on our home-hunt as if we’d been friends for years. Travis built a solid rapport with me by always addressing my fiancée and daughter (by name) when it came speaking on home details. He brings in an exciting energy and never beats around the bush when it comes to knowledge and news that needs to be relayed. We were never in the blind about what was going on. I believe Travis even went into a soggy crawl space without being asked, nice clothes and all. He has character to boot! Look no further if you need an agent, Travis is definitely your guy!
Very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. Was able to find me houses that fit both my needs and my budget. He was very willing to video chat with me since I was living out of town and couldn’t come regularly to look at houses.
Travis is a fantastic realtor. His attention to detail and thoroughness is top notch! I’ve worked with multiple different agents, and have purchased many homes. The thing that is quite refreshing with Travis is he actually loves what he does, and it shows. He did a great job at helping my wife and I negotiate with the sellers to get our dream Richmond house we wanted, under list price. I would 100000% recommend Travis to any perspective buyer or seller.
Chris helped on a moment’s notice to get us in for a showing, and canceled travel plans to draft our purchase contract. He then had to rinse and repeat, juggling a tight timeline to sell our home! Multi media channels were used to get our home noticed, and we had multiple offers as a result. The team is incredibly responsive to calls, emails, and in-person visits to ease the stress of buying and selling.
Chris provided me with a detailed marketing plan for selling my home as well as a checklist of items to take care of to ensure that my home showed well. He also provided referrals as needed to help me take care of small projects. His advertising was well done and all operational items (such as scheduling appointments) went well. The home sold quickly and for the price I wanted. Chris ensured a smooth closing. I was very pleased with his professional demeanor and knowledge.
We considered four real estate agents before asking Chris Small to help us sell our house this year. We chose him because he gave us a realistic assessment of the market, the price range we should expect and the work we should do to get the best price. Chris laid out a logical plan and a timeline we could live with. He recommended a listing timeline that was different than what we were planning and I’m glad he did! Chris brought in a fantastic team of experts to look at everything from light switches to paint to www. Once we agreed with Chris on which repairs were most valuable and important, my wife and I appreciated how he stayed connected with us and the workers. I turned it over to Chris and his staff, and I didn’t have people call me asking about color choices or specific light fixtures. The house looked great when the work was finished and the staging was in place. We both agreed we should raise the price beyond our original estimate, and within four days we had multiple offers well in excess of the asking price – the best offer was almost 10 percent over asking price and completely beyond our expectations! I can’t stress enough the importance of having a good plan and sticking to it – Chris was a master at that. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking to get the highest price for their house, with the fewest headaches.
We initially met Travis when we were looking for a rental property as we moved to Richmond from Washington, D.C. Although we ultimately did not decided to move forward with the property he was showing, he continued to stay in touch every so often to ensure our transition to Richmond had been good, offering any support and local knowledge he could give. He eventually helped us navigate subletting our apartment. All of these small touch points generated trust in Travis – it was clear he had our best interested in mind and was someone we enjoyed working with, which led us to work with him on our first home search. By a first home is full of unknowns and discomfort, yet Travis explained each step to us thoroughly so we felt fully informed and on the same playing field as more experienced buyers. He helped us refine our search conditions, but spent enough time with us to know when to show us something that fell outside of those – including the one we eventually settled on! Had he not understood us and what we valued in a home at a deep level, I don’t think we would have found the most perfect house for us. Throughout the negotiation and inspection process, Travis was extremely detail oriented. He personally helped us find a reputable second contractor to assess specific items in the house that needed more eyes on them for us to truly understand what the scope of repairs were. He has a great network of partners that we have been extremely happy with throughout our home buying process. We would highly recommend Travis as someone who is going to listen and take care of you at each step in your home search!
My fiancé and I just bought our first home together and Travis was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. I knew we were in good hands and he was able to answer all of our questions quickly and in terms I could understand. I thought this would be a stressful process but he made it easy! I highly recommend working with Travis as your realtor.
Last year, while we were having no luck selling our house in the Museum District for $508,000, Chris Small sold a similar house on our block for more in the first week it was on the market. So we asked him to list our house. He had very good advice about what it would take to sell it, and he made sure the work got done efficiently. When we brought the house back on the market, it sold the first weekend for $590,000 – $30,000 over his suggested list price. I was amazed. We had a great experience with Chris, and I’d highly recommend him to others.
