"Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is an incredibly intuitive and supportive buyer's agent, whose amiability is matched only by his professionalism. With Chris' guidance, I was able to find a great home in the exploding New Braunfels market in no time at all. Thanks, Chris!"
- Daniel Salinas
"Chris is a great realtor and we really enjoyed working with him to buy our home. He works hard, is knowledgeable, and was sure to cross all t's and dot all i's in the process. We will be using Chris again for future real estate opportunities."
- Alvie Faulkenbery
"Chris was amazing to work with. As young as he appears, he is quite knowledgeable about all facets of home sales. He answered the MANY questions I had with great patience as well as expertise. Chris explained what to expect, what I needed to do (and not do). His demeanor was very professional and steady, which is exactly what I needed. He helped me calm down when I got too emotional about a bump in the road, and was simply a joy to work with.
For first-time home-buyers or -sellers in particular, turn to Chris Torrey. Even if you have gone through the buying and / or selling process before through a different agent, I would encourage you to seek out Chris."
- Yvonne Burge
"I cannot explain how happy we are to have found Chris!! As this was our first time purchasing a home, I was nervous about everything I simply did not know or what I would need. Chris took the time to listen to both of our Must Haves and Deal Breakers and communicated daily on finds that were in our price range. He was extremely responsive and always got back to us in a timely manner. Most of our communication was done via email or phone calls after 5pm so we didn't have to interrupt our work schedules. In a crazy housing market like Austin, we found our perfect house in just 2 months! Negotiations were smooth and successful and Chris helped the Closing process happen on time and in just 40 minutes! All in all I highly recommend Chris Torrey for any realtor needs, not a single negative thing to say about him or our experience!"
- Helen Carr
"I initially considered 4 realtors to handle the sale of our home. Chris struck me as someone trustworthy and someone easy to work with throughout the whole process. Which turned to be the case. He never was pushy which to me is extremely important.
The icing on the cake was he valued our house higher than the others which greatly increased our net gain. He has sold 2 properties for me and working on the 3rd. Remember it's a process that can take months you want to be in business with someone who respects you and has your interests foremost."
- Lewis Rollman
"Chris did an excellent job - my buying experience couldn't have been any smoother. He was great at communicating all options available to me and always had my best interests as his top priority - I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. I love the home he helped me buy but if I ever decide to move, he'll be my first call."
- Debbie Sanderson
"As an insurance agent, I've got SEVERAL connections and clients who are realtors and in the real estate business. I found Chris pretty much on accident and it was the best decision I could have made! He did an excellent job and found me a terrific house. He was extremely professional and dedicated several weekdays and weekends showing me dozens of homes and providing the best possible advice. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is either a first time home buyer or seasoned buyer/seller. You won't regret it!"
- Adam Milne
"Chris Torrey assisted my husband and I for a few months in the search to find the perfect home. Chris understood our goals and budget and was able to find us what we were looking for at the right price! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and made us feel much more comfortable with the process. We were first time home buyers so we were confused and a little unsure, but we had a fantastic experience thanks to Chris. Definitely recommend!"
- Erika Tjaden
"WoW! Chris was fantastic as our realtor! We were looking for a home to buy for my two kiddos to go to college in San Marcos. Chris was very knowledgeable and took time to answer every question we had. Most importantly he was patient with us until we found a great property fitting our needs and becoming a good investment. Chris has also remained a friend and I highly recommend him and his office if you are looking to buy or sell in the area. Thanks Chris! "
- Andre Quibodeaux
"I contacted Chris in spring of 2015. He responded immediately and was very helpful. My situation changed unexpectedly so we had to put our plans on hold, and he was very gracious and helpful and responsive even when he knew I wouldn't be able to buy a house right then. So eight months later, I reached out to him again, we got to see houses that same week. When we found a house we loved, he helped negotiate quickly and very much in our favor. Also, he's just pleasant to be around and has a good sense of humor. I consider Chris my realtor friend now and would recommend him to anyone."
- Shannon Preslar
"My wife and I purchased our home with Chris' help and it was a wonderful experience. We were moving to the area because I had accepted a new job and had only 7 weeks to find a house and close, which is no easy task. Chris sat down with us and we d what we were looking for, and within a day he had compiled a list of potential houses for us to look over. Once we had narrowed down the selection, Chris took us around to view 14 properties. During the trip he was very helpful and pointed out features that we otherwise would not have noticed. He did not rush us through the process at all, and as you can imagine it took an entire day. We ended up choosing the second home we viewed and Chris was courteous enough to bring us back for a second look to make sure we wanted to move forward. From there he helped us interact with a lender and negotiate with the seller. We ended up with a very fair deal and were able to close a week sooner than we had originally hoped. We cannot recommend Chris enough and when we are ready to move on to our next home, Chris will be the first person we call."
- Jordan Jahrling
"Chris helped my husband and I buy our first home 6 years ago. His knowledge of the area and market expertise exceeded my expectations. He was extremely responsive and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell."
- Nicole Plummer
"Chris has always been very patient and diligent with us. We used him to buy our first home and had a very particular type of home in mind in a very particular area, and Chris delivered. He explained the home buying process to us in easy to understand terms, and got us the home we wanted (and under budget!). He was always available when I needed him and will definitely be using him in the future."
- Ross Mcewen
"Chris is professional and knowledgeable in real estate. He helped us find our first home and then helped us sell it 2 years later when we moved locations for my husband's job. When searching for our home he took the time to find exactly what we were looking for. He didn't just try to sell us on any home. He listened to what we needed and searched high and low. Chris fought for us when we almost made the mistake of purchasing a home with a foundation issue. Ultimately we decided on a new build, and he ensured the purchases of our new build went smoothly and that we understood the process along the way. He cares about his clients and forms a relationship with you not just a sale or purchase. When having to suddenly sell our home recently, we called Chris and he immediately was ready to assist by looking at comps in our neighborhood to price our home correctly. He provides professional advice and knows how to buy and sell a home. He sold ours in 5 days! We definitely recommended Chris to anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home. We will use Chris in our next home purchase! "
- Lacey Honig
"Chris listens to his customers, therefore the whole process is easier. I used Chris Torrey with Elite Realty 3 times now. The first time he helped me buy a home just after divorce, two years later I sold that home and made some good money. In 2015 he helped me buy another great deal, then I sold for another great profit. Chris Torrey is the GO TO Realtor! "
- Jim Lynch
"Chris Torrey is a great broker to work with. He helped us sell our home so that we could start building our new home on land that he also helped us purchase. His knowledge of the market really helped us get the right price for our home. I definitely recommend him to people who ask and will certainly use him in the future for other real estate transactions!"
- Josh Clements
"My husband and I met Chris during an open house and we really enjoyed our visit with him that we decided to go with him for buying our first home. During our search he was never pushy and did not show us any homes that did not meet our needs or budget. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, honest, and always communicated with us during the entire process. We truly enjoyed working with him and we thank him for making our experience of buying a home a good one."
- Andrea Tayde
"Chris was extremely professional, not pushy, and very informative. The amount of communication was a lot more than i expected from any agent. we were never overwhelmed by the processes and never felt that any of our questions were too simple to ask. I have recommended Chris to a friend recently selling their home.
Wonderful experience on selling our home (in 7 days) to buying a home within a month in a highly volatile market where homes were flying off the market; as soon as we found one we were able to get in touch with Chris to schedule a tour.
Cannot say enough positive things about Chris and how seamless the entire process was."
- Matt Capps
"Chris helped us get through a difficult deal on an unique property. He didn't let us give up and kept the process rolling over all of the hurdles to the finish. His knowledge of the lending process and lender contacts was invaluable."
- Kathy Kelley
"Chris Torrey went above and beyond to help me find my perfect home! He was in contact with me nearly every day during my home-buying process and was very accommodating to my schedule. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone searching for a Realtor!"
- Catherine Jennings
"Chris Torrey was great to work with while searching for a home in central Texas. He was patient with us and professional. He showed us homes all over central Texas and helped us narrow our search. Chris helped us negotiate through our first home purchase. I would recommend Chris to anyone looking for a home or property. "
- Bryan White
"Chris is an excellent resource for selling or purchasing the house you want. I have bought two homes through Chris and sold one. All three were smooth as can be. He will listen to your needs and requests and do everything he can to fulfill it. He is also cool under pressure which suits him and his clients well during the negotiation process.
Overall, he is a fun guy who genuinely cares about the work he does. His passion for meeting the needs of his customers is clearly evident in a few minutes of speaking with him. He delivers on commitments.
If you are in need of a realtor or looking for someone better, Chris is the guy."
- Travis Damron
"My wife and I have been working with Chris Torrey with Elite Realty Advisors since the middle of 2015 and are about to close on a home in Austin, TX. Since we live in Los Angeles, we were concerned about the entire home buying process given that we can't physically see every home we're interested in (let alone make an offer on a home site unseen).
Chris has consistently gone above and beyond for us, emailing us walk-though videos, providing CMA's quickly and offering tons of insight about each neighborhood, property and how to manage the home buying process in general. Perhaps most importantly, given how competitive the Austin market is right now, he's provided us info quickly enough that we can make decisions with confidence and succeed in these borderline-ridiculous multiple offer situations. He also recommended vendors that have done a killer job with inspections and our home loan. He even helped us get more concessions from the sellers than we originally requested, which was a huge bonus!
To say that buying in Austin is crazy right now would be an understatement, but Chris helped us ease into the market in an educated way and soon we'll be in the home we wanted most. If you're buying in the Austin area (especially if you're an out-of-towner), I highly recommend using Chris Torrey and Elite Realty Advisors."
