Chris Smithson


Chris was an excellent partner throughout the entire home buying process. He found houses with the criteria I was looking for, within my price range, and was even very accommodating when I selected properties on the fringes of my needs, just so I could make sure I was getting the right house.   When an offer was made on my target home, he acted quickly, and guided me through the bidding process to ultimately submit a successful offer. All the way through closing, Chris was great. I highly recommend him. ~ Gavin McWilliams


Chris was the Representative for both buyer and seller for our purchase. He was very objective, honest and professional. Our purchase was smooth, and escrow closed on time with no issues. Chris knows his stuff, great personality and remains calm under pressure. We are very happy to have found him.  We now have a new friend and a person to call upon with any real estate questions. ~ Robert & Georgia Pelton


I would recommend Chris for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Not only is he knowledgeable with Whatcom County and the surrounding areas, Chris operates with the utmost integrity and professionalism of any realtor you will come across. He found the perfect home for my wife and I. Chris guided us through the whole process and was wonderful. We found the perfect home and fit for us and could not be happier. I highly recommend Chris for all your home buying or selling needs. ~ Jeff  & Julie Jackson


Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Chris. He is very knowledgeable in the local real estate market, was always available to answer questions and quick to respond and or dig to research answers to our many questions through the process. He helped us secure a property as Canadians in the US market which certainly comes with some challenges. ~Shawn Cook


Chris did a fantastic job helping me find and secure a home. The particular home that I picked came with some interesting challenges, which he helped and coached me through. He’s really is an excellent agent and goes above and beyond to be sure that his clients are informed and that things are on track. I found him to be knowledgeable, trustworthy and diligent – just a great guy in general. I was fortunate to work with him on this purchase. Highly recommend. ~Sharon Welensky

Chris was an incredible realtor. He was always ready at a moment’s notice to take my partner and I to view a home. He was quick to respond to questions and on top of all of the latest house listings. More than anything he wanted us to be in a home almost as much as we did. Not only is he
  knowledgeable about the housing market, but his heart is in it too. We loved working with him and would choose him again in a heartbeat if we decided to move. I can’t recommend him enough! ~Deborah Molsberry 


Becoming a first time home owner, I had no idea what to expect working with a realtor until I met Chris. Chris was very easy going and professional working with my girlfriend and I. He had a lot of patience for us and was determined to find exactly what we were looking for in a home. Chris also continually kept us motivated and reassured when finding a home. He is a very dedicated realtor and I can tell he loves working with people because he thrives on the payoff when helping clients purchase a home. I would absolutely recommend Chris to anyone in the market or soon to be. ~Derek Gillis


Chris was amazing every step of the way. He helped guide us to the perfect home for us and had a good understanding of our wants and needs. He connected us with a great loan team. He was friendly and fun to work with while being professional. He quickly got us in to see properties and allowed necessary time to view properties. He was quick and efficient in responding to us and things needing to be done. He was accessible 7 days a week. He was patient, knowledgeable and thoroughly explained what we needed and wanted to know. He gave us great advice which led to a quickly accepted offer and closing. Thanks so much Chris! ~Heather Rodriguez


Chris helped us in so many ways!!! Being new home buyers, of course we were nervous, scared, asked way too many questions and doubted everything. Chris was there every. Single. Step. There is a saying out there that goes “if you want extraordinary results, you must put it extra ordinary effort” and let me tell you he did just that. Driving 30 minutes at 7pm to show a house, or answer my phone calls that were always loaded with questions. Thank you Chris Smithson for all you did for us! ~Mannen O’Brien


Chris is a great agent. In addition to his great customer service, he helped us navigate through a very challenging/competitive market, and ultimately we found what we were looking for less than we expected to pay. In addition, he was extremely patient, understanding, and flexible with us through the whole process of our changing budget, decisions, and opinions of what we were even looking for. ~BJ Cassell


Our experience with Chris was very positive. His professionalism and responsiveness helped make our home search enjoyable. Attention to detail is very important to us, and Chris exceeded our standards. His honesty and knowledge of the industry ensured we will be return clients when the time comes. ~Craig & Jess Dawson 


Chris was great to work with. I wasn’t on the search very long, as I made an offer on the 4th house we saw and they accepted. So I can’t speak much to the Chris during the search process. But from the time the offer was sent, to closing day, Chris kept constant communication. As a first time homeowner, I felt he took extra steps to ensure I knew what was going on at all times. He was there for inspection, appraisal and closing day. He worked on negotiations with the sellers and was great through the whole process. Would recommend Chris to anyone, but especially first time buyers! ~ Keely Shannon 


Chris Smithson is an invested man in finding a home that fits your needs. He spends the time to understand what your needs are and exceeds expectations. We are a retired couple and relocated from Auburn, WA to Bellingham, WA. Chris made our house search an adventure and found us the perfect home. What we found fits our needs and we could not be more pleased. Need a hands on agent? Chris Smithson is your guy! We felt like we were his only client. What an amazing man he is!!!  ~ Pam and Ric Fredback


Chris is an Awesome guy! Saw exactly what we wanted and found it! Did the same for a family member as well. Smoothest home buy yet! ~Nathan & Molly Ulin


Amazing Realtor! Chris went above and beyond expectations. Chris answered every question, and if he did not have the answer, he found it. Thank you so much in helping my family get our house! ~ Karen Camden


Chris was kind and patient with us, it was our first home purchase. We never felt rushed or intimidated. He was always available to answer our questions, or to go see a place. Knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely caring, this is who you want on your side when buying a home!! ~ Cecil Bee
