"Chris helped me to find and buy my first home. He was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. From the beginning Chris was honest and always gave me good advice from scheduling showings to connecting utilities."
"Chris loves what he does and it comes through in the way that he treats his clients and his profession. He will fight for you, he will educate you, and he will guide you. He is not interested in short-term gains and transactional relationships."
"Once I met with Chris, it was obvious to me that he understood the business and knew the market. He developed a solid marketing strategy that ultimately resulted in a price point that was unprecedented for my area of Santa Monica."
"Chris was so great to work with! His communication, professionalism, and knowledge were all the things we were looking for in an agent. He was there anytime we had a question, even when we called him late at night. From the beginning we knew that Chris had our best interest in mind, and that gave us peace of mind throughout the process. I've already referred him to three other friends, and would recommend him to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. "
"Chris was great to work with. He was extremely helpful and attentive in helping decide on the right neighborhood, as well as the house that fits our requirements. The real estate process can be complicated sometimes but Chris is that agent who we trust and rely on when evaluating and making critical decisions. His acumen is very sharp when it comes to assessing properties in Los Angeles, resulting in an invaluable perspective to buying and selling decision making. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating to all of our concerns. I would definitely recommend him to any prospective buyer or seller. "
"Chris was an exceptional agent, he listened intently to what I wanted and did an amazing job utilizing his market knowledge and canvasing various areas of Los Angeles that would work given what I wanted and within my budget. He was hardworking and diligent in communicating with me during the entire process, had good communication lines with the other agent, title, escrow and even the bank providing the financing. Best of all, he actually helped box up some of my stuff and helped move me into my new place!!! He went above and beyond, I would definitely want his help on my next home purchase! "
"Chris Ryder completely earned my trust. He takes his work, his service and his advice with a deeply serious intelligence that makes me sure he will find me exactly the right place, a home that fits my life and my budget. He brings me good choices and never tries to sell anything, but rather listens to my reactions in order to hone his search and find that perfect place. He understands that balance between what I want and what can happen. Working with him fills me with hope. I'd unequivocally recommend Chris Ryder to anyone needing a home. "
"Chris was both professional and personal as he helped my wife and I search for our first home. The level of preparation and knowledge he demonstrated assured us that we were in great hands! Chris even invested himself in learning more about my wife and I personally in order to glean information regarding our preferences and goals as we considered home-buying. I would recommend Chris to anyone who values the personal aspect of the occupation while maintaining a level of professionalism that is remarkable. Thank you for your help sir!"
"Look no more! Chris is THE real estate agent for LA greater area. I had worked with three different real estate agents in the past and none of them worked well for me (left me w/ no house purchase). I met Chris by a chance by clicking "contact agent" button on Zillow. He worked tirelessly to find me a place I was looking for. This was my very first house purchase so I was trying to find "the perfect one" with lots of odd requests. Even though the market is competitive for a buyer right now, he worked his magic and BOOM! My very first offer I ever put in was accepted. He made everything so much easy and I am thankful for him! Thanks Chris for the painless awesome journey to find my first home! "
"Helped us find a great house in West Adams and was super helpful during the offer process, inspection and loan closing. Would definitely work with Chris again."
"Chris is great to work with. Keen on listening to ones needs when looking for a new home, super organized and knowledgeable of neighborhoods and the market. I can highly recommend him!!!"
"We met Chris totally by luck when we were walking a neighborhood looking at homes and Chris happened to be leaving one that we were approaching. I can honestly say it was the best luck we have had in quite some time. Chris knows LA inside and out, is a master of the buying process, has great connections in the industry including hooking us up with a great financing option in spite of our challenging international circumstances. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone, and we would use him again without hesitation. "
"Chris Ryder is simply a great realtor. He has now shown me three possible houses and given me all the pertinent facts He is attentive, quick to respond and always on the lookout for your best interests. Can't recommend him highly enough. He has also introduced me to top level construction firm that might possibly help me with a future construction project."
"We worked with Chris to buy our first home and I would highly recommend him to anyone as he will work tirelessly to help you navigate the LA housing market to help you find the home of your dreams. Chris was very much instrumental in getting us our beautiful home in a very hot LA neighborhood. He was also thorough and took the time to explain each step in the process, making sure we felt comfortable at every point. Throughout the general stress of the home buying process, Chris was super supportive, responsive, and really went above and beyond to make everything as easy on us as possible."
"Chris was super helpful as my partner and I are first-time homeowners. There were lots of moving parts which he navigated smoothly. He respected our needs and budget, nothing was too small or too much for him. We must have looked at over 30 properties and he made himself available - we never had any scheduling issues, all questions were answered as best as possible. I would recommend Chris to any level of experience homebuyer or seller! He's a great guy and agent!"
"Chris Ryder helped us get a great deal on a home in Mid City LA. He is knowledgeable and easy to work with and always there to answer questions. In the bidding process Chris helped us put the strongest bid without going over our budget. When it came to inspections and negotiating repairs Chris showed his great negotiation skills. Basically we got a great deal were the sellers agreed to fix most of the issues we asked for. Chris Ryder is an outstanding real estate agent."
"As first time home buyers we leaned heavily on Chris' expertise to guide us safely through the home buying process. From the start, Chris was easy going, consultative in his approach and extremely knowledgeable. He understood the market, the buying process and each element of escrow including offer & repair negotiations. Most importantly, we trusted and enjoyed working with him. He was reachable 24/7, pulled data analysis to inform an educated offer, found us an incredible interest rate/loan opportunity, advised and critiqued our offer letter, and made calculated judgement calls to help us outbid 6 competing offers. I would recommend Chris without hesitation and look forward to working with him again."
"From open houses to closing escrow my wife and I had the best experience with Chris Ryder as our agent. This was our first time buying a home and Chris was incredibly helpful explaining the in's and out's of the process. Chris is a great listener and after a session discussing our needs quickly put a plan into action to help find the right house for us. Chris did a lot of leg work and visited many open houses on our behalf which saved us time, helped the narrow the search and really mitigated our stress. Chris is an agent who works tirelessly and genuinely cares about finding you the perfect place. We couldn't be happier with our new house and Chris made it happen."
"I purchased my first home from Chis last month. Chris made me feel very comfortable right from the start of the process. Chris was able to help me understand all the steps and processes we would go through while in escrow. I was able to utilize Chris for any and all questions and if he couldn't answer it, he would get me in contact with the right person. I look forward to working with Chris again in the future!"
"Chris is an amazing agent I will highly recommend to my friends and family. I first encountered him the day before Thanksgiving as he was showing me a condo. As I was a first-time buyer, he was more than willing to provide all his knowledge and resources in terms of wish lists, mortgage, down payment etc. Assuming it was the Holidays, I did not expect to hear back from him until the next week but he emailed me with a bunch of options the next day so I can browse through them during my days off. He later told me he cares most for his clients and for them to get what they want with no delays. Also, I was able to understand the Los Angeles county even more through Chris, as I was biased on some areas which turned out to be better/worse in terms of buying homes. He does a lot of research before showing properties, very punctual, extremely kind and amazing with following up with questions you have. If you need an agent, reach out to Chris! :)"
"Chris was fantastic resource for us. We were first time prospective home buyers and don’t have a clue what we were doing. Chris held our hands through the entire process. He took the time to understand what we were looking for and what was important to us. Once he understood this he made the effort to look for us on his own, and clearly understood us. We will definitely use Chris next time around. He clearly has knowledge of all different LA areas and price ranges. He’s still a valuable resource for us as first time home owners a few months after closing."
"Chris was all in from our first meeting. He spent the time giving me a great overview of properties in West Hollywood and the Hills where I was looking. Once I found a place I loved he negotiated a great price with extras. The closing was swift and clear. He has checked in and helped with issues that arose post closing. I trust him. And I’m a NY’er we don’t trust easy. He will be my broker on my next deal."
"Chris was so incredibly helpful in our home buying process, from our first meeting through the days following our official closing. As first time home buyers, he made us feel comfortable, informed, and stress free. I never felt the need to micro manage him, as I trusted him entirely to not allow anything to slip through the cracks. He kept us informed daily, answered any and every question we had, and never ever seemed bothered with our neediness. Last but definitely not least, Chris’ negotiation skills were A+. It took us a few offers to find our dream house, but with each one, he built amazing and helpful relationships with the listing agents that always enhanced us as potential buyers. His advising on offers was absolutely incredible and a game changer. I’m 100% positive we wouldn’t have gotten our new home without Chris"
"Chris helped me to find and buy my first home. He is a great agent to work with. He was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process and even after the closing. From the beginning Chris was honest and always gave me good advices. He is very professional and helped me with everything from scheduling inspections to connecting utilities. We were looking in different neighborhoods and he was knowledgeable about all those areas. Above all, he has a great personality which made the whole process of buying a place fun and exciting. I am really glad that I had a chance to work with him and would definitely do it again in the future. Thank you Chris for helping me find a place I can call home"
