Chip Hodgkins is very professional and handled the transaction smoothly. He made the process very easy and took the time to make sure we understood all the terms. We received more value for our home than we expected.

I have known Chip for several years and have found him to be incredibly responsive, honest and easy to deal with. His ability to take vague questions and disseminate the requested information into a complete package is unmatched! He even thinks of things that potential buyers might not even realize they were thinking. His knowledge of the greater Syracuse area is fantastic and his true love of the region shows in his attitude. I would highly recommend Chip Hodgkins to anyone looking for a new home or looking to sell their current home. Less ... More

when I first met Chip he showed up to my house and was very professional looking. when taking to him he knew his market and the market for my house. Chip had a few suggestions on improvements that needed to be done, and had a crew ready to do work quickly. The house was sold in 22 days, and I am very happy with the service that Chip and his team has given me.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
We connected with Chip on a few properties but decided to stay in the home we already owned. Chip listened to our needs and provided us with information that helped us make our decision. He had our best interest in mind!

Chip was great! He was very straight forward with us. He did extensive research on our property, area, selling potential, and market. He advertised our property perfectly, with the best photographs, captions, open houses, and online presence. He was always available for meetings, he answered our questions honestly, and most important, sold our house within three months. We could not have had a better experience. We followed his advice, and we sold! If you are thinking of putting your property on the market, go see Chip! Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We were very fortunate to both buy and sell a home with Chip. He has a very sound and informed understanding of the market, He is very candid and straightforward, but never discouraging. Most of all, he gets results: in a down market, we still managed to close on our new house and sell our old house within the same month.

Our home was on the market for three years with a very good realtor during a difficult time to sell. After three years we felt we needed a change in agency and in approach. We interviewed four candidates, narrowed that to two and made a difficult choice between the two finalists. In the end, we felt that Chip Hodgkins represented the sharpest break from the past, a more corporate approach, so we selected him. For a number of reasons this proved to be very fruitful. The market had changed somewhat. That helped. We needed to get attention and Chip did that for us. He stuck with us and worked hard to get our property noticed. Three months after signing with Chip we had two offers come in within three days and the house sold. We are very grateful for the assistance he provided. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Chip is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of his work. He has great communication skills and truly listens to what his clients want. During my fiancé?s and my time with him, we recognized and appreciated how ethical he is. His goal was not to just sell us a house, but to get us what we truly wanted for a reasonable price. Chip has great networking skills and was able to utilize these skills to assist us with a smooth process. His office is extremely attentive and the staff seems to really enjoy their jobs. It never feels as though we are bothersome to him or his staff. We plan to work with Chip in all future purchases and sales. Less ... More

Chip acted in a professional manner at all times. He stayed on top of any issues that arose. Chip got back to me soon every time I called him with questions. He was able to recommend electricians, plumbers, etc. He was able to sell my house on the first it was shown, for the asking price.

Helped me buy home
My husband and I realized that a house we had been admiring went up for sale and we wanted it to be our new home. We needed an aggressive agent, since this is the house we truly wanted and we knew it would sell fast. We had contacted a real estate agent who wasn't moving fast enough-this is when we realized the agent you chose is someone who needs to get the job done if it's what you really want. We contacted Chip Hodgkins, and he was able to get us the very first showing. We put an offer in at the showing, and we are now living in our dream home. Chip worked extremely fast for us. He was very professional and at the same time, knew we really wanted this to be our home, was aggressive to get us our home. He was also very organized, and everything went perfect. We LOVE our new home and will always remember Chip for making it ours!!! Less ... More

Let me start off by stating that my wife and I thought selling our home would be extremely stressful and did not know what steps we needed to take to ensure the sale of our home. Then we met Chip, who walked in the door and put all of our worries to rest. Chip was upfront and honest right out of the gate and his attention to detail was also very impressive. He did not sugar coat anything and when people want to sell their home, they need someone like Chip who will never leave you questioning your decision. His marketing strategy is incredible as is his knowledge of every single aspect of real estate. Chip was able to get us a full price offer on our home and that was more than we hoped for. He is transparent and his associates share his enthusiasm for real estate, always paying attention to detail and always prompt when information is requested from them. Bottom line, if you want to sell your home, you should not be calling any other real estate agent in CNY because if you want the best, you need to hire the best. Chip Hodgkins, in my opinion, is the best. Less ... More
Response fromChip Hodgkins
Thank you K and L, It was great to work with you. It went fast and for full list price. That's the way all Sellers want it to go. Aggressively driving Buyers to my listings is what helps sell them quickly and for top dollar. Thanks for the review.

Chip is a top notch realtor in our area. A house sale / purchase is one of the biggest financial transaction one makes in life and I have found Chip to be very capable of this kind of responsibility. He is tremendously knowledgeable, professional, and creative. He sold a house for me in the Village of Manlius in the spring, I have since recommended Chip's services to a professional colleague whose house he sold earlier this summer. Chip is currently in the process of selling another house with acreage for us in the Cazenovia area; an endeavor that he is taking on with his typical dedication and zeal. He keeps up with his sizable workload with an impressive team of associates. I would not hesitate to recommend Chip for the sale of your house / property. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
I own a beautiful home in Liverpool, NY. In the four months I hired this person to sell my property, I did not get a single offer. He was vey unprofessional, not returning phone calls for several days, and thus receives a poor for responsiveness. His local knowledge is poor, as he had me list my home at a much higher price than it should have been. He did not consider comps. His process expertise is also poor since he lacked the foresight to hold an adequate number of open houses and he also lacked motivation. He held only one open house in the four months he was hired, before I fired him. He failed to negotiate a deal with anybody during my open house, nor with anybody who phoned with interest in my home. This is the problem people, you only hear about his positive sales in his commercials or claims, but not the negatives. The other problem is he takes on too many homes, which prevents him from giving you the personal attention you need to sell your property. I suggest you stay away from this guy. Less ... More

Chip is a "go to" guy, my first impression of him I feel was very accurate. Within a week of the initial listing I had a purchase offer, and despite a very difficult negotiation process with an incredibly difficult buyer... He got the job done.

We had a terrific experience with Chip Hodgkins which resulted in our house selling in 5 days! His local knowledge in real estate properties is exceptional and the biggest difference is his ability to market your home. Chip communicated with us almost daily throughout the process and seamlessly managed the relationship with our Corporate Relocation Provider in addition to our buyers. We highly recommend Chip and his team for your home sale or purchase.

Chip initially showed interest in selling my home in our first conversation. After that he would not return phone calls or emails. very poor business etiguecate. I would not recommend him as an agent.

We had two homes that needed to be sold quickly. One call to Mr. Hodgkins and they were CLOSED - one in two months, the other in 3. Very impressed with the professioal level of this agent. We have bought and sold properties in the past and never experienced this mans expertise. We are proud to recommend him to our friends.

To say Chip did not "over" promise or "under"deliver is an huge understatement. He gave great advice, was extremely responsive. We sold our home for darn close to what we were asking roughly six weeks after it was ready to show in the midst of terrible winter weather...and a very poor real estate market. That should say it all.

Chip Hodgkins did an outstanding job listing my house. He was very responsive from the start. He gave me a clear understanding of the process and had some very helpful tips. He got my house on the market fast. I received multiple offers within days. Chip was masterful in negotiating with the potential buyers and I ended up with a solid offer that was three thousand dollars more than the asking price. I could not be happier with Chip Hodgkins and will definitely be using him again in the future.
