This was our second home purchase with Chris Elmi. Once again, he was fantastic through the entire process. He has a deep strategic understanding of the market. He saved us significant time and money by anticipating our needs and presenting solutions for our approval. We learned quickly that he is a genuinely kind and patient person. He is very organized and kept us on track despite several personal issues we were having at home. He provided clear and immediate answers to all of our question. Chris Elmi is the perfect choice for the seasoned home buyer or the stressed out first-timer who is navigating unfamiliar territory.

Chris Elmi, from the Nina Marino Team at Keller Williams, guided us through the purchase of our dream home from start to finish. He patiently and cheerfully showed my wife and son over a dozen listings. We used a VA loan and we benifited from his considerable experience with VA lenders. Chris always made us feel important and valued. He treated us like friends as well as clients. We learned a lot from him. He told my wife at the beginning that "there are no stupid questions". He insured that we understood each step, term and condition involved with our purchase. It might sound funny but thanks to him we actually had a good time buying our house. Thanks again to Chris Elmi and the rest of the Nina Marino / Keller Williams team!

Chris was very helpful. He went out of his way to show us this property on short notice and was prompt in finding out all the information we needed to make a decision on this rental. We did end up renting the property and even after the lease agreement was signed, Chris continued to help us with additional questions and concerns. We felt very luck to have been introduced to Chris through a friend. We would highly recommend him.
