"Chris masterfully handled the sale of my Logan Circle condo unit in April of 2018. This was not the most straightforward deal, as I had tenants in the unit, making it subject to the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA). These deals can get tricky, as the buyer gets significantly increased leverage in what is otherwise very much a seller's market. Chris handled it smartly, carefully, and flawlessly. We ultimately sold the unit to my tenants. I got everything I needed out of the deal and had zero headaches and no issues. It's important to know the market and the business -- and Chris knows understands that. But it also helps to be a good person, with a good attitude, and a humble and gracious approach. And Chris understands that, too. And that aspect of his approach to the business really helped put this deal over the top. He took a cooperative approach without sacrificing any of my goals. Top notch -- I'd recommend Chris to anyone (and I have!)"

"Chris Polhemus is an excellent real estate agent who is truly devoted to his clients. He goes above and beyond to help in any way he can, responds promptly to questions and needs, and follows through on everything. He is completely honest and trustworthy and provides a client experience free from pushy sales tactics. He really cares about getting his clients exactly what they want, and doesn't rush the process or pressure you. I really enjoyed working with him and I consider him a friend now."

"Chris has represented me in two real estate transactions - one time each as a buyer and seller - and he is knowledgeable, personable, trustworthy and proactive in all our interactions. He always made me feel like I was his only client, although I know he must have been managing other transactions simultaneously - his responsiveness, availability and commitment to finding me the best new home within all my specifications and budget, and selling my home for the best price and conditions negotiable made me feel like I was his only and favorite client. I have recommended him to other homebuyers and sellers who have worked with Chris and are exceedingly happy as well. He helped me find the perfect home for my family so I don't expect to need his help again anytime soon! But if I need a realtor again, he's the guy!"
