Before you get into my review, please know no one is paying me for this review and I am not afraid to call out flaws or issues, because no one is perfect. I have dealt with a range of agents over the years and Chris Ristau stands out from the other agents. I valued his knowledge with both real estate and financing, but also his willingness to research things. No one knows everything, but people who can do research will usually find the answers, but many agents do want to put in the effort. I was not a big spender, but I believe I got the same level of service a million dollar buyer would have gotten.
