If anyone is in the market to buy or sell a home I would highly recommend that they use Chris Kershisnik. Chris helped my husband and I buy our townhouse three years ago and when it came time for us to sell our townhouse and buy a single family home the first call that we made was to Chris. We are extremely happy that we did because the entire process of listing our townhouse and closing on both the sale of our townhouse and purchase of our single family took just over a month. Chris explained the various offers to us in easy to understand terms and was equally as helpful when it came to helping us write an offer. His marketing strategy for our house must have worked because we listed our house on Wednesday and had multiple offers to consider when we sat down with him to consider offers on Monday. You could tell that Chris truly cared that we found a house that worked for our family. He listened to our wants in a house and helped us find the perfect house for our family. Chris stayed engaged with us through the whole buying and selling process and was very responsive whenever we had questions. We had back to back settlements that went off without a hitch and a good portion of the credit for that goes to Chris.
I worked with Chris to buy and sell my home in November of 2012 and can tell you he’s one of the good guys in this day and age when you need to know who you can trust. He works with the utmost integrity and I can honestly say he’s now my friend. Chris went above and beyond in every aspect of the sale. He counseled me to price my home correctly and not only brought me qualified buyers, he sold my home in 30 days. He then helped me to find a wonderful new home for me and my family. He helped me understand the correct way to stage my home and the upgrades that I needed to make that would help me maximize my investment. From there, he took the time to understand what I wanted and needed from my new home. Most importantly, he got to know me and directed me to homes that I could afford and would satisfy my needs.

Chris has been a great realtor for my family. He is extremely responsive to our inquiries and is very diplomatic with other realtors. He has a great approach when we would like to place an offer on a house, keeping our best interests in mind. I also like his approach for selling as well as buying. His experience shows that he knows how to get a house sold. And he knows a lot about houses and repairing houses, so he is very helpful pointing out problems areas or strengths of a house that would not be obvious to me. He has never been one to just get us to buy a house. He is willing to find a home with which he knows we will be satisfied. That has meant a lot more time on his part showing homes to us, but he has never complained and in fact he reinforces he wants what's best for us. I know that he also values family and is always extremely friendly with our small children.
Chris Kershisnik was a wonderful realtor to work with! He stayed in contact with me during the entire process, sent me listings based on what I was looking for, and was very receptive to looking at the houses I was interested in. He explained all of the needed paperwork to me, explained laws that applied to the state, and fully answered any questions I had. Once I found a house, Chris did an excellent job staying in contact with the selling agent so that I would know what was going on and have an approximation of how long things would take. Chris was very personable and friendly to work with and he made what can often times be a very stressful process, into one that was very exciting, low stress and fun!

My husband and I purchased our home in July of 2012. After many years of looking for houses and many realtors that were only interested in a quick sell I was reluctant to keep the search going. We came in contact with Chris and immediately we knew this was the exact realtor we were looking for. He was not pushy at all, he showed us only what we wanted to see, he didn't take us to see houses out of our price range, he never said "if you want this house you need to put in an offer immediately" there was no pressure, no feeling of being pushed into buying and making a quick commission. When we found "the one" Chris showed us the house and we put in an offer that night. Throughout the process Chris worked hard to make sure it all went smoothly, it was the best home buying experience. I would truly recommend Chris.

Chris has been the ultimate real estate professional. I have relied on him for the sale of two homes, under some very difficult conditions. In addition to the expected marketing functions, his critical thinking skills have led to solutions to several issues that might have slowed or hampered the sales. He is a great communicator, and understands the importance of keeping clients updated. Consistent with his military background, he has outstanding attention to detail. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
My family and I were on assignment in Egypt and were looking forward to returning to the Frederick area. Chris was able to sell our town home when we left the country, so we contacted him when we were ready to buy. While we were in Egypt, he would preview homes and send pictures and videos of homes we were interested in. Once we found a home we wanted to buy, Chris was able to draft the contract and present an offer electronically. During this whole process we relied on Chris to represent our interests and negotiate the deal, so much so, we did not personally see the house till the day before we went to settlement. We returned a few months later and finally moved in. We are extremely happy with the house and we're very grateful to Chris for helping to make the transition easier and less stressful.
I want to thank Chris for selling my house so quickly and for full asking. I was moving to Chicago in a month and he worked with me to quickly get my house on the market. Within the first few days of being on the market I had over 10 showings. Within 10 days I had an offer for full asking. I really thought I was not going to get my house sold before I moved, but Chris made it happen. He also helped facilitate the repairs that needed to be done and recommended great people to come take care of it. After I moved he helped me with all the closing document needs. I really appreciate all you did for me in getting my house sold.
With Chris as your realtor, you can count on someone whose goal is to help you find a home, not just sell you a house. He’s a true partner in the process with the added bonus of his general “house knowledge”. We had our home built and it was awesome to know Chris had our backs on anything and everything construction-related!
We are very pleased to have worked with Chris Kershisnik. Chris helped us find our townhouse 7 years ago and recently helped us to find our new single family home. He was very easy to work with and quite accommodating to our very busy schedule. It took some time to find what we were looking for but thanks to his patience and desire to help us, we wound up in home better than what we expected to find. We would definitely ask for Chris’ help again if we ever decided to move again and will highly recommend him to friends in the area.
“I have recommended Chris to a friend and a neighbor who were having difficulty with their realtors. Chris served both of them with excellence and is very customer service oriented. Both reported their previous realtors didn't stay in contact and never showed the properties. Chris does! Talk with him today! You'll be gald you did!” October 4, 2008
“Chris approached the sale of my home with aggressive and creative ideas using new approaches to generate fresh buyer traffic. He does an excellent job keeping me informed every step of the way, and provides insight on directions to take that I hadn't thought of. He's a joy to work with and I trust him completely.” March 10, 2008

"Our experience with Chris has surpassed our expectations. We were due to settle on our new home, and the time line in which we had to sell was a sensitive matter. As always, we wanted our home to sell for top value, but there were no sales for the past year in our community. Chris helped prepare our home for showing by referring outstanding servicemen to help. Their marketing plan worked extremely well, and in less than a week, he presented us with multiple contracts, many of which offered more than asking price. We experienced minimal stress during both transactions and love our new home!"
"I was referred to Chris Kershisnik by one of my best friends in the Home Mortgage business at Wells Fargo. I had plenty of friends who were real estate agents, but I decided to take the advice given by my best friend instead, and ultimately, was given the pleasure to work with Chris in purchasing my first home. Not only did Chris make my home-buying process as simple as it could possibly be, he looked out for my best interests as if HE were my best friend. He surveyed houses when I didn' thave the time, was very patient in the process, and reported back to me in a prompt fashion. The search for my first home concluded after 3 months or so, as he was very understanding since this way my first home. Chris prepared paperwork to the greatest of ease, and all I had to do was sign off on it. He explained everything to me in great detail, suggested renovations to my condo, and even referred me to a guy who does excellent renovations. I have referred Chris Kershisnik to any of my friends looking to purchase in the near future, and I will continue to do so, as I pretty much couldn't have drawn it up any better."
