Chris' detailed expertise helped us to be fully prepared before putting our home on the market, when it sold in just two (2) days! We needed a lot of help knowing just where to begin and felt confident with the professional and tasteful tips that he and his team provided. When overwhelmed during the process, Chris really focused us in a few small, attainable details! He patiently answered our questions as we struggled to prepare for a sale. We wanted to know that we had done everything we could to make our home sell! Obviously we did by choosing Chris since we accepted an offer in only TWO days on the market! We were amazed by the upbeat and winning attitude of Chris and his team and recommend them to anyone wanting to convert a dated and used house into a lovable, appealing new home for a prospective buyer.

We worked with Paulina Onchak, one of Chris' associates. She is absolutely the best. She will make it her personal mission to a home that best meets your family's needs. We recommend her to anyone interested in buying a home, and especially to first-time homebuyers, as well as people who aren't sure which neighborhood they want to call home. We would never work with anyone else.

Chris Jurcisin is the most knowledgeable, strategic, thoughtful, engaged and thorough realtor in the Cleveland/Cleveland Heights market. He knows the area, knows buyers, really knows what it takes to sell a home. He persists through difficult circumstances and is the ideal partner to help a seller wait on the market to sell to the right buyer. I could not recommend him more highly. You cannot find a better realtor in Cleveland.

We had contacted Chris a few years prior to actually listing our house. At our initial contact, the housing market was at a low point. Chris provided suggestions to make our house more marketable. It took some time for us to get our house ready to sell and for the housing market to start to improve. During that stretch of time, Chris was always available for us to contact him and ask questions. Once we listed our house, we listened to Chris's professional suggestions and advice. Chris is very experienced. It took about four months to sell our house. Less ... More

Wow! The best realitor I've worked with and I wish I could clone him and take him with me every place I go! I moved to Cleveland from California and have lived a great many places in my relative young age. I have purchased, sold and rented with real estate agents in the past and never experienced a more knowledgable and respectful agent. Chris not only knows Cleveland Heights, but he loves it. I found a home I was interested in buying on zillow close to four years ago and Chris was the listing agent. I contacted him to view the property. After letting me know that his policy is to represent one party at a time (rather than cashing in on both the commission of the buyer and seller), he spent the better part of the day giving me a tour of not just that home but the surrounding area. He gave of his time in a way that impressed me enough to search for him by name when it came time for me to sell in the same area. While he was not our agent in the purchase of our home, I was so pleased to work with him as the listing agent for the sale. I would have stayed in Cleveland Heights forever, but I received a job offer that I could not refuse. Now in Chicago, I miss the area deeply. The sale was emotional for me and Chris handled our process with care. My relocation occured during the winter months so I was concerned about how long the house would sit on the market. I had a relocation benefit with the new employer and Chris was completely seemless in handling those details. He was polite and knowledgable on negotiating a listing price and the home sold in less than two weeks from the listing date. When it came time to tackle the details of the sale, Chris recommended top notch professionals to handle city and buyer inspection findings; he was always prompt in answering our calls/texts/emails; and he managed the process with grace. Finally, several weeks after the sale I got a call from my grandparents who indicated that they sent a holiday package to us. Having not received it, we feared that the package had been sent to the sold home address. I contacted Chris and he had the package within days, in the mail and delivered to our new home in Chicago. Chris is not only a great agent, he is a kind and caring man. While I am still mourning my Heights Home, I will always remember this transition fondly because of Chris. Less ... More

I was made beneficiary of a home I inherited from a dear friend of mine that passed away and had no idea how to handle the situation. Chris was referred to me by someone I know and met me at the house. I explained what happened and he was very attentive to my needs. Chris walked me step by step through the entire procedure and explained evrything that I needed to do. He always answered my telephone calls and encouraged me if I got discouraged. It was like talking to a friend if I had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Mr. Jurcisin to anyone that is looking to buy or sell real estate. Thank You. Less ... More

I recommend Chris as a realtor to anyone. He has helped us to tell two houses and found us our dream house. With our most recent house sale, he went above and beyond to help the deal to close. When the buyers wanted some minor electric work done and I couldn't find an electrician, Chris not only secured an electrician but was there to let the electrician in while the work was performed. We had a lot on our plate with relocating and Chris tried to take as much as he could off our plate. When it came to finding a new place to live, Chris showed us a few houses and listed to our likes/dislikes and said "I have the house for you". The next day we went to see it and he was correct - it was our dream home. I couldn't believe he was able to find something so fast for us and it only took two days of looking. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Heights area, the homes located within, and the buying/selling process. He is also super helpful if you need help finding contactors or want advice on what can be done to improve a house. Again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Less ... More

After getting the house we called HOME for 20 years ready for sale, there was only one realtor in the Heights that I was going to use for the sale. Chris was amazing, knowledgeable, honest and always right there with answers with questions we had. Within 2 weeks of listing we had a buyer. Thanks Chris for everything you did, it was a true pleasure having you represent our home.

What I learned in working with Chris is that it's all about pricing it right. Usually your first offer is your best offer. If you take the advice, stage the house to show, you will close the sale. Chris is an expert in the market and knows not only how to price your listing, but also how to keep a deal together when things go less than smooth. I highly recommend Chris. Listed and had a deal within a week in a difficult market.

My wife and I have purchased four homes over the past six years. We have never had a realtor as trustworthy and informative as Chris Jurcisin. We purchased a foreclosure in Cleveland Heights and he was there every step of the way. We had never purchased a home via a home renovation loan and at first we were unsure of the process. Chris did everything for us and walked us down the road through informative and dependable advise. He had many suggestions that saved us a lot of money and also set us up with a great contractor that was not only affordable but dependable. We will definitely be using Chris in the future and will refer him to anyone in the area. You are crazy if you don't use him. Less ... More

Chris is very responsive to questions and concerns. He is very friendly and supportive. He helped take care of things on the property so that it was good to show. We have used Chris to buy and sell our home, and he was great both times. When buying our house he was very patient with us, and did everything to make us comfortable in the process.

After a frustrating year on the market, prior to meeting Chris, he helped us stage our house correctly, took excellent photos and priced it right. He and his staff always returned calls and emails promptly. I highly recommend him to all my friends.

Chris is an excellent realtor. He helped me find the home of my dreams - within my price range - all while making the experience as stress-free as possible. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the market, readily available for questions and quite skillful at closing the deal. He was also very honest with me about prices, affordability and expectations. In other words, Chris knows what he's doing. He's a trustworthy, expert realtor and I highly recommend him with no reservations whatsoever. (I also had a blast working with him. In addition to being competent, he's personable and fun.) Less ...

I've sold two homes in University Heights with Chris and his team. Bottom line is that he gets great results. He knew the market well - the inventory, buyers' desires, other agents - and was very honest in his assessment of our home and its strong/weak points. He also has great resources who are very loyal to him, so he's not just going to tell you to paint something, he's going to connect you to a reputable, reasonable painter if you need it (and you will unless you can wait a long time to get in their queue.) We didn't always agree, but 9 times out of ten in the end, he was right and I learned to trust his recommendations. Less ... More

From beginning to end Chris was there to assist and provide the utmost professional service. His knowledge of the local market helped to set a price that would be achievable. His attention to detail was fantastic. When staging the house he had the resources to call on that made it possible to achieve the look and appearance needed to achieve a quick sale.

Chris was amazing. Very patient (with us and our active kids) and never rushed us. He was always quick to get back to us with an answer, a recommendation, or just to see how things were going. We often felt that we must be missing something really important because the whole process was really quite smooth, uncomplicated, and quick.

Nine years ago, I used Chris to help me find my first home. I joke that Chris actually picked my first home for me -- he knew my style so well. Chris spends the time to get to know you, your likes, dislikes, your aesthetic, etc. And over time it helps Chris help you find your home. Nine years later, married, we were looking for a bigger home. We called Chris, he spent time with us, got to know me and my wife, what we were looking for, and then walked us through the process of both selling and buying a new home. He and his team are stellar to work with. Responsive, caring, energetic, sincere, and enthusiastic are all words that I would use to describe Chris. Without hesitation we would use Chris again.

If you live in the Cleveland Hts. area, you cannot find a more qualified, competent, knowledgable, or resourceful realtor than Chris! Our experience with Chris started when he sold our home in Cleveland Hts. in 2 days. It ended with Chris securing our "new" home in spite of challenging negotiations. He is willing to discuss options and gives his expert advise. I encourage you to take it. We did and couldn't be happier. It is a pleasure to recommend Chris Jurcisin.

Chris did everything he saud he would, and many things I wouldn;t excpect an agent to do. We completed our sale from out of town, so Chris ended up doing more legwork that is usually done by the sellers, and we really appreciated it. He saved us at least one, probably a few cross-country trips to make our deal go through. Can't recommend him strongly enough.

Chris was absolutely terrific to work with. We were moving out-of-state and were selling an older home (mid-1920s) that was in excellent condition, and that we'd live in for almost 30 years. Chris went through the house, room-by-room, making suggestions about how to make sure the house was in perfect, turn-key condition to help it move faster in a somewhat slow market. He was honest, constructive in his comments, and on-target. Part way through the selling process, he heard feedback that the kitchen was a turn-off to some potential buyers; we had dark wooden cabinets which we loved, but he recommended repainting them to brighten the kitchen. Our heart said "no," but we went with his suggestion. He was correct: it enhanced the appeal significantly. He maintained excellent communications with us, and we have nothing but positive things to say about Chris. We highly recommend him in the strongest possible way. Less ... More

Chris helped us to sell our house in a difficult housing market. He was knowledgeable until it came towards the closing. Then we found that information that he gave us was factually incorrect, despite his assurances to the contrary. Based upon his reputation and professional credentials, we made the mistake of relying on his professional advice during closing. This mistake needlessly cost us close to a thousand dollars and significant frustration. He also referred us to at least one unlicensed contractor. This caused us problems (and probably cost us money) when had to rush to find a new contractor so we could comply with the point-of-sale. Less ... More

In a very tough market, Chris helped us list and sell a condo in Cleveland Heights, OH. When the condo was listed in 2012 it was on the market for about 4 months during which time we were no longer physically located in Cleveland Heights. He handled scheduling all of the showings with our renter and presented us with a contract that had to be negotiated with a tough buyer in our absence. We were pleased with the final outcome of the sale, and the experience wasn't stressful for us as out of town sellers. We would highly recommend Chris Jurcisin as a real estate agent. He knows his market and gives good advice to ensure that a deal can come together. We appreciate his efforts and attention to our sale. Less ... More

After listing the house with another agent for 10 months with no success, we took it off the market through the winter months. When we decided to put the house back on the market, we needed a realtor that would be willing to take a more involved role since we would be selling the house from another state. Chris came highly recommended and we are so thankful. Chris was mindful that we wanted to sell the house without investing a lot more money into it. He made effective, low-cost recommendations to prepare the house for market that ultimately led to an offer within one week of listing. He provided excellent insight as we negotiated the final price and was instrumental in helping us deal with the City of Cleveland Heights inspectors and their ridiculous citations. Throughout the whole sale he was very accessible and easy to reach via phone or email. He was a pleasure to work with and I felt that he always had my best interest in mind. I absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to sell a house. Less ... More

I've worked with many real estate agents in the Heights and elsewhere. Chris is, hands down, the best. His experience as an investor and experience in the area fundamentally changes how he views the marketplace. It makes all the difference. I could not recommend him more highly. PS The "good" rating on Responsiveness is just because he's busy. He prioritizes appropriately. I don't want a real estate agent that has me as his only client.

No one knows the Cleveland Heights real estate market like Chris. A listing with his name on it will help get a seller closer the desired SOLD sign because he does his homework, presents the facts and helps set-up the seller for success in an incredibly tough market. With Chris' expertise, our house sold in a matter of weeks. Without Chris, our house would probably be withering on the market 12 months later.

When I had the good fortune to find Chris Jurcisin, our real estate had been on the market for over a year. He immediately provided us with the information and nearly daily communication that we needed to ultimately obtain an offer. This was no small feat in a market that is most decidedly a buyers' market. There was nothing that we asked of him that he was unwilling or unable to do at the appropriate time and with consummate professional skill. We unreservedly recommend Chris Jurcisin in the strongest terms. Less ... More
