Chris helped me search for a home during a time that I thought I was prepared to buy. After collecting a lot of information and looking at homes, Chris helped me to determine that it wasn't a good time for me to be in the market. His honesty helped me from getting in over my head and gave me the tools to prepare for my future purchase. I was reluctant to tell him that I needed to wait to buy because I didn't want to disappoint him after investing his time with me. However, Chris is a realist and approachable so his reaction to my decision to wait a year or so was: "I'm glad you decided to wait, it means Ive done my job."
He truly has his clients best interest at heart not just money, which is why I will use his expertise when it is the right time for me to purchase a home. I recommend Chris because he will do everything he can to make you an informed buyer or seller.
""We had never met Chris before and decided upon meeting him that we would use him for the sale of our home. It was definitely the right person and agency to use. Whenever we would stress over something Chris was there at anytime we needed him, and he would figure out the problem before it was a real problem. Any hour of the day 7 days a week he was there if we had a question making us feel secure in putting our home sale in his hands.We thought about selling it on our own because one of our friends was trying to sell their home themselves. The sale on there home fell through 2 weeks before there closing because something was not done right.We did have problems with our buyers but Chris knew how to handle it and we closed at full price. It really does matter who you choose when selling or buying a home and we would recommend Chris to everybody and anybody in need of a Real Estate Professional.""
""We believe our house would not have closed if it was not for Chris Hoke. We had some problems from the other side and Chris knew exactly how to negotiate through all the problems. We ended up getting the house that we wanted for a price that was lower than we expected thanks to Chris working his magic! We were the first people to see the house and ended up with a great find. Chris is really on the ball always looking out for who he is working with. He paid attention to the market so we did not miss out on a great deal. Thank You!!"
"I'm writing this letter to tell you of the wonderful experience my husband and I had while searching for our new home. We began working with Christopher Hoke in March 2004 just recently after we were engaged to be married. At the very beginning we knew he had or best interest at heart and was committed in helping us succeed in the search for our very first home. We had many questions and concerns, as I'm sure many first time home buyers do, and Chris really took the time to cater to all of those needs. He spent many hours over the next few months working with us, and never made us feel pressured in any decision making processes. He was available any time of the day for consultation, and we felt as if we were his only clients! This personal attention helped to ease a difficult and stressful time.
We purchased our new home in October 2004 and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The home went on the market and Chris took us to see the home that night, he didn't want us to miss out on this opportunity. We even bought the home for $10,000 less than the asking price, and with the way the market has been, that is a rarity. Chris had researched other homes in the area and knew the asking price was too high. We were nervous of losing the home to a higher bidder, however, we were thankful that we trusted his expertise. We now have the home of our dreams for a fair price.
Christopher Hoke is a true asset to your realty company. He understands client needs and has truly made a difference in our lives. We will continue to recommend him to other home buyers and sellers because we know he does the right thing for clients, when many other Realtors will do what is best for themselves. He cares for people, not just for property!
""Chris Hoke was our agent on both our purchase and the sale of our
prior home. I would definitely recommend him as an agent for either
a purchaser or a buyer.
On our sale, he went through the house with us and made suggestions
that would help the house show its best. He put together a smart
marketing strategy that would maximize our market exposure and
interest. After a week, we had six offers to choose from, several
above our asking price! Ours was the highest selling price ever in
the neighborhood and, if I'm not mistaken, none has sold for that
much since. He handled the problems that invariably crop up, often
before we even knew about them.
After we found the home of our dreams, Chris made sure that we were
able to purchase it, even though there were other buyers
interested. Again, he handled all the details, with a minimum of
stress for us.
He made himself very available to us, and kept us informed on the
progress of both deals.
Both closings went smoothly and we are happy in our new home.
If we were to move again, you can be sure we would want Chris as our Realtor!"

"Chris did a great job of marketing our home. He was patient and professional and worked with us exactly the way we wanted him to. We have worked with other agents in the past and not one worked with us the way Chris did. We know now it really does matter what agent you pick when selling your home. We can thank Chris for helping us get the highest price for our home"!
"It's nice to know that there is someone you can trust and depend on when it comes to real estate.Chris was always there when we needed to ask questions or needed something taken care of every step of the way. We always recommend Chris Hoke any time people ask us about real estate."
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the absolutely superb job you did in marketing my mother's property. As you know, she was extremely uncomfortable about the sale of the house she lived in nearly fifty years. Your sensitivity to her needs as well as your ability to move the market in her direction proved an unbeatable combination.
Many of the obstacles to relocation my mother considered nearly insurmountable you accomplished with ease or showed her how painless the transaction would be. In the end, you you got for my mother a better deal than she (or I) could ever have expected, absolutely hassle free! A professional job and then some,well done!
My mom now overlooks a palm treed courtyard in Florida wondering why she did not make the move sooner. We cannot thank you enough.
I want to thank you for all the help you gave to my husband and I during the
sale of our home to your client. As you are well aware, we
chose Foxton's to sell our property. Their full-service claim is a joke, as
we found out much too late. Had it not been for you, I'm sure this
transaction would not have taken place.
You represented our buyer, yet you were there for us every step of the way.
When Foxton's "disappeared", you were there to answer our questions, to keep us informed of the status of the sale, to schedule the inspection, and to
take care of every little detail. When things looked as though they might
fall apart, you assured us that we still had a sale.
Chris, you are truly a full-service Realtor. I would highly recommend you to
anyone buying or selling a home. I wish there was a way I could give out
commission to you, not to an agency that did as little as Foxton's.

"Abdul and I want to thank you the dedication and professionalism you
displayed throughout the process of selling our home. The sale of our home
was riddled with complications, but through it all, we knew we could count
on you to help us overcome each challenge we faced. Thank you for your
persistence, because without it, we probably would not have sold our home in
a timely manner. You never took no for an answer. And that was that
attitude that helped us to sell our home - for the price we were looking
for, in the time we were looking to sell it, and to a buyer who was
qualified and committed to the sale. We are glad you were on our team!
And we look forward to working with you again in future real estate
""Chris was the Realtor who found our family's dream home! We were thrilled with his work on both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our home and would happily recommend him. Chris carefully orchestrated the contracts and our closings were stress-free. We felt like we were his only clients!
He is an excellent listener and thoughtfully selected homes for us to see -- homes in our price range that met our needs. Other Realtors use your high number as their low number -- trying to get you to spend more than your budget. Chris isn't pushy that way. He didn't seem to care about the amount of his commission; he really cares that we found the right home and it meets our needs and our budget.
He is professional and polite, yet assertive when he needs to be.
Chris's honesty is his best trait. He is also an excellent "people-reader" -- understanding and working with different types of people in a manner tailored to their personalities. He is the rare person who can build trust on all sides, seeing everyone's point of view while representing his client directly and clearly. He knows when to be firm and when to suggest compromise because he understands the needs of all parties.
Chris is very accessible; on the rare occasion that he didn't answer his cell phone, he returned our calls promptly. We found it very comforting to know that we could reach him any time of the day or week.
Chris has built a good support network in the community. He recommended both our mortgage broker, Scott Metaxas, and our lawyer, Alison Kosberg, and they were terrific!
We hope you choose Chris to be your Realtor. He will do his best to prove that he is worthy of your trust."
"Life has been busy since the last time we saw each other. Busy is good, and we could´t be happier. This would not have been possible without your help. We were not sure exactly how to go about selling our restaurant business. This was not the case for you. Your constant attention on marketing came with great results. We know this was not an "easy" sell because real estate property was not involved, but somehow you made it work. You held our hands the whole way. You reassured us even when contracts and closings seemed unreachable. We were triumphant in the end and this would have never happened without your total professionalism and devotion. We will happily recommend you to anyone needing business or personal real estate guidance in the future. Once again, thank you for doing your best job with a wonderful outcome."
