When it was time to buy a home, we were very concerned about finding the right agent. As many of you know, this is not a buyer's market and having the right agent can make or break your search. We knew we needed someone with strong knowledge of the current market, solid relationships with other agents, dedication to the long-term search, savvy negotiation skills, and compassion. When C.T. came highly recommended to us, we set up an initial conversation, and it quickly became obvious that he was not only immediately honest and trustworthy, but truly cared about finding us the perfect home within our budget. We are a large family of surfers and gardeners with jobs rooted on the peninsula, so it was important that we have quick access to the beach, land to grow food, and doable daily commutes for an affordable price. Our search began in Los Gatos Hills, but changed many times as we became more and more educated on the surrounding areas. Eventually, we opened up our search to Scotts Valley, Santa Cruz, Capitola and Aptos as we just fell in love with the idea of ending our days at the beach vs near work. C.T. was so, so, so patient as we grew and transformed throughout the process -- each time we expanded the search or added on some new preference, he would due diligence to research and travel the options. He hiked up crazy hills just so we could see the view, was a sweetheart when we hit our "low-point-we'll-never-find-a-home-moment-that-we-­can-afford," and gave us much-needed straight shot advice when we were considering what would've become a total money pit. Once we settled on our dream home, he worked relentlessly to make sure that we won. His contacts were also invaluable as we went through the inspections, loans, etc. We were so lucky to work with C.T. and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a home within his regions of expertise in the Bay Area.

I must take a moment and acknowledge our realtor C.T. Harris for the exceptional work that he's done in marketing our house for sale. We recently placed my father's home on the market . We had been looking for someone with knowledge of the surrounding neighborhoods, including price/quality comparisons. I absolutely had to find someone with the marketing acumen to be able to get the property sold at the right price quickly. C.T. Harris guided my husband and I through the process, by initially researching the neighborhoods, detailing the comps and providing school district and land use information. After evaluation, C.T. promoted the home effectively as a mid-century house. C.T. then marketed the house to fortune 500 employees coming into the area. He provided us a detailed profile of the kind of buyer that he thought would be ideal, and he was absolutely correct. C.T. acted very effectively as our presales project manager, providing staging and improvements within a tight budget. Throughout, C.T.'s follow-up was exceptional. He acted as project manager for the renovation crew. He chose paint colors, flooring, landscaping, and appliances that would set the property off to its best advantage. C.T.'s timing to market was also amazing. At the initial open house, 10 offers came in on opening day. C.T. reviewed all of these, then provided us with valuable coaching and insight, allowing us to select the two best offers with the greatest likelihood of closing quickly. Of course, most realtors are personal, engaging and people-oriented. However, my husband and I feel that C.T. stands a cut above the rest, owing to his warm personality, his attention to detail, and his absolute, unfailing integrity. After this house transaction, I count him as a trusted friend. His personality comes from the heart, and his work ethic is quite uncommon.
