My fiancee and I feel so lucky to have had Chris Kostopoulos as our realtor. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He’s simply the best!

My fiancee and I had been renting for several years when we finally decided it was time for us to start looking for a place to buy. Knowing very little about the process we went on Zillow and randomly contacted a realtor. We feel so unbelievably thankful that we chose Chris Kostopoulos. He is  incredibly knowledgeable about the home buying process and able to break it down into layman’s terms. Chris is always available. He’s patient and responsive. When you need him, he’s there but at the same time we never felt pressured to buy a property that we were unsure about.

Chris worked very hard to find us exactly what we wanted. We were primarily interested in Roslindale/ JP, an area with which Chris is extremely familiar. Our new home is in the exact neighborhood that we requested. Chris was able to get us into the condo for a walk through before it was listed. With Chris’s guidance we negotiated an offer that was well within our budget and before any open houses took place our offer had been accepted.

Next Chris continued to hold our hands during the inspection and closing processes. He recommended to us an incredibly thorough inspector, as well as knowledgeable lender and lawyer. My fiancee and I felt so comfortable with the entire team. It can be quite stressful to embark on such a foreign, lengthy and complicated process with complete strangers, however, we always felt like we could trust Chris and the people/ businesses he recommended to us. Since moving into our new home Chris has assisted us in finding people to help us renovate. He continues to be an invaluable resource and we continue to be impressed with his referrals and suggestions.

Chris is an amazing realtor. He goes above and beyond to ensure his client's needs are met.

Chris is an amazing realtor. He goes above and beyond to ensure his client’s needs are met. Chris is extremely knowledgeable, and I’m fortunate to have had him educate me not only about the home buying process, but also about what to look for when buying your home. Without a doubt, Chris has found a life long client in me. There’s no one else I’d consider working with on my next purchase or sale.

The whole team was very responsive and everything went very smoothly.

I chose Chris based on the many positive online reviews.  We looked at houses for 1.5 years before finally closing on one.  Despite the long process, he was very patient, and we never felt pressured or rushed.  I always felt that he was looking after our best interest.  One potentially major problem was found during inspection of our house, but I expressed to Chris that there was probably not much point in asking for any concessions from the seller given the very strong seller’s market, especially in our particular area, but he was the one who felt he should be able to negotiate something for us, and sure enough he was able to have the sellers cover some of the closing cost.

Also, the whole buying process was very smooth.  I went with the mortgage company and lawyer he recommended, and they were great too.  The whole team was very responsive and everything went very smoothly.  I tried to find my own home insurance, but when the avenues I pursued were not working out, I asks for a recommendation, and it was spot-on.

I highly recommend Chris!

Chris helped my husband and I purchase our first home in Jamaica Plain and we absolutely recommend him to others without any hesitation.

Chris helped my husband and I purchase our first home in Jamaica Plain and we absolutely recommend him to others without any hesitation.

We chose to work with Chris after interviewing 2 other potential brokers who also have extensive experience working with buyers in that neighborhood. What set Chris apart from the beginning was his thoroughness, attention to detail, and desire to help us find the place that was right for us. A huge additional bonus that sets Chris apart from other brokers is his significant knowledge of construction  and home condition details so he is able to point out things that could be a costly problem down the road.

Chris was almost always immediately available by phone, text, and/or email. He arranged several hours-long days for us to see multiple properties in the neighborhood. When the property we ultimately purchased went on the market, he was able to get us in early to see it before others.

He is also a master negotiator with good instincts who always does the best for his clients. Throughout the offer/counter offer process he was always in communication with us and gave us what ended up being very good advice. After our offer was accepted but before we signed the purchase and sale agreement, there were some issues with the seller’s agent and Chris was able to smooth everything over and he did so while on vacation in Aruba!

He works with a good team of lawyers and mortgage brokers and we were actually able to move our expected closing date forward a few days when we decided we wanted to move in earlier.

Again, we would highly recommend Chris and his team for a top-notch home buying experience!

Chris is the kind of person you want to sell your house. He does not over promise - he is very low key and a strategic thinker when it comes to important negotiation.

As good as it gets. Yes. Chris is the kind of person you want to sell your house. He does not over promise – he is very low key and a strategic thinker when it comes to important negotiation. It was a pleasure to pay him! I felt like he had my back every step of the way and there were some difficult moments. I had put my house on the market 2 years earlier and had such a bad experience that I decided to stay. So I was skeptical to begin with but he is so steady and such a hard worker. He goes above and beyond in many ways. He sent an interior designer to my house to help with staging at no cost to me. He thinks about the big picture. But the shining moment came after the close. He left me a remarkable gift…he had consigned an artist to do a portrait of my house. This painting was so sweet and surprising. I love it and it closed the entire experience with such a great feeling. In the end I had 4 offers the first weekend the house went on the market. Chris and the dream team that included Nik Ligris – the real estate lawyer – are simply the best

I'm new to Boston and was looking for a condo as a first time homeowner - FAST. Chris was responsive and was a wealth of knowledge - on all the Boston/Cambridge neighborhoods

I’m new to Boston and was looking for a condo as a first time homeowner – FAST. Chris was responsive (at 10pm at night, on the weekends, all the time), and was a wealth of knowledge – on all the Boston/Cambridge neighborhoods and what was a good fit for me, on ‘plant issues’ of structural/foundation stuff, on the history and surroundings of certain areas that would impact the sale value. He helped me find the perfect place for me, and was patient, informative, always went the extra mile to help me out and talk through my Many, many questions as a first time buyer. In such a stressful process, he was almost like a counselor, weighing the pros/cons, getting a good insight into what I wanted, and helping me with mortgage and inspection questions. He also negotiated my offer lower in a smart way I never would’ve thought of and saved me some pretty pennies. Thanks Chris — truly awesome  job! 🙂

I felt supported and "in good hands" throughout the process - I recommend Chris highly to all my friends who are looking to buy in the Boston area!

Chris came highly recommended through a few friends of mine, and, after buying a house with him, I couldn’t agree more with their high praise!

As a first-time home-buyer, I was a bit overwhelmed in the beginning, but Chris helped me navigate the whole process. I was particularly impressed by the number of flaws and problems he would point out in the places we went – it helped me feel incredibly informed and ensured me that he wasn’t just pushing to make a sale, but really cared about getting me into a quality home that fit my needs.

Chris was incredible in terms of negotiation – he definitely knows how to play hardball on behalf of his clients. I was surprised (and continue to be surprised) by the price I paid for my house! We negotiated the price down significantly from the asking price – way more than I think I would’ve been able to do on my own.

We ran into a snag in closing due to an oversight on the part of the seller/seller’s lawyer, and Chris (and the lawyer he recommended to me, Nik Ligris) really went to bat for me. We ended up finding a solution for the work the buyer should’ve done (but didn’t do) to the house, which brought down my purchase price significantly.

I felt supported and “in good hands” throughout the process – I recommend Chris highly to all my friends who are looking to buy in the Boston area!

Chris was terrific. Best attributes were that he answered the phone every time I called - was always available and responsive.

He takes everything serious and works with you to find the best property for you, but that he also helps you understand the process and makes sure you are comfortable.

In my dealings with Chris, he is as genuine as it comes! He takes everything serious and works with you to find the best property for you, but that he also helps you understand the process and makes sure you are comfortable. I can honestly say that my family would not be in our dream home if it  wasn’t for Chris! Would definitely use him in the future and recommend him if you are in the market.

Chris is able, affable, accommodating, available, an aggressive advocate, an alleviator of stress — in short, Chris gets all A’s for his efforts and outcomes.

If you are looking for a realtor in the Boston area, I can refer you to a gentleman who is unquestionably the best! He is Chris Kostopoulos of Keller Williams Realty. We met him by chance when looking to buy a new home, and he quickly became our trusted advisor and thoughtful friend.

Chris invariably guided us to decisions that best served our interests, applying his extensive knowledge and skill to ensure that we would make sound choices.

He made himself available whenever any questions arose — weekday, weekend, early morning, late evening. He even responded promptly to an email I wrote, not knowing he and his family were away on vacation.

He provided links to personally selected talented professionals such as a real estate lawyer and a mortgage lender, both of whom served our needs with the utmost care and skill.

At one point, it seemed we might have to withdraw our interest in a new home after Chris had patiently guided us through the long process of pursuing the purchase of a property under construction. Was Chris angry that he might lose his payment for the months of careful work? On the contrary, he was sympathetic to our plight, and offered to do all he could to minimize our loss. Fortunately, with his help, we were able to complete the purchase.

To sum up, Chris is able, affable, accommodating, available, an aggressive advocate, an alleviator of stress — in short, Chris gets all A’s for his efforts and outcomes. Our experience working with him could not have been better, and we would hope that every home buyer could have the help of a realtor with at least some of Chris’s qualities.
