Sea-Town Real Estate
"It was easy to list with Christian as he was very clear about next steps and how the process from finish to start would be. Throughout the process of preparing the house to list to close of escrow I was always made aware of what was going on. Christian was always accessible by email/text and very responsive to questions I had. Christian always provides a solution to problems and gave me options. I highly recommend Christian Harris if you want you sold at the best price and a clear process." - David Lee - Seattle, WA
"Christian was a pleasure to work both professionally and personally during the recent purchase of my first home. As any home buyer knows, it can be intimidating, and the market I bought in was definitely a sellers market. Christian was extremely timely in a very hot market where the difference of a few hours could make or break a deal. He also went above and beyond in several instances and as another reviewer mentioned, "If I told you in this review exactly what he did you probably wouldn't believe me and I'd probably be committing him to things so above and beyond normal expectations that it's not my place." I know exactly what they mean and share the sentiment.
I have no hesitation in recommending Christian as a real estate agent for a buyer or a seller and have already recommended him to some close friends. Additionally, he strikes me as a thought leader in real-estate and has written a book, hosted podcasts, and developed a blog that make him stand out where so many others are just riding the wave.
Next time I am in the real-estate market Christian will be the first person I call." - Justin Bernier - Seattle, WA
"Christian was with me every step of the way throughout the real estate transaction. He was very professional and personable. He listened to what I was looking for in a home. He was knowledgeable about the current market. He kept in touch with me and was quick to respond to my questions. I would not hesitate to refer Christian to a friend or colleague for their real estate needs." - Mary Ramsey - Poulsbo, WA
"I have never sold a house previously and had many worries about the process. Christian from the get go was very clear and precise about how to bring my house to market to get the best possible offer. Christian's presentation of my property earned many high remarks from other agents and their clients. I leaned on him throughout and I'm extremely satisfied. With no hesitation, I can say that Christian will be my broker in the future!"
- Neil McCracken - Renton, WA
"Christian was extremely knowledgeable, organized, and efficient in selling my [West Seattle} condo. The amount of effort I put in was far less than I expected, which was very helpful as I have two young children to care for. Christian kept me up-to-date with the process without overcommunicating and was fun to work with." - Natasha - Seattle, WA
"Christian a good friend of mine, but to my surprise it turns out he is an even better real estate broker. Christian helped us sell a home that needed some serious work. He coached us through the process, helped us along the way, and ultimately we made a very substantial profit on the house after owning it for only three years and having not put a down payment on it. Market conditions were right, but Christian knew exactly how to take maximum advantage of it. If I had to put a number on it, the value I received because of doing business directly with Christian instead of a typical broker was between 20k-30k... He will definitely be my broker for life." - Elliot Benjamin - Seattle, WA
"Christian Harris was wonderful to work with. He was quick to answer messages and dedicated to helping me get into the right home!" - Tayissa - Burien, WA
"Christian was an amazing help to us in finding our first home. We had never purchased real estate before and we were new to the whole process and didn't know what to expect. Christian put us at ease and gave great advice to finding and purchasing our house."
- Gin & Josh - Seattle, WA
"Christian did an amazing job working with my busy schedule. Countless times he took my calls past 9:00pm and always answered my questions exceptionally fast. I would recommend Christian to anyone. He did a fantastic job, especially wth a building group [new construction down town sky rise condo building] that wasn't always easy to work with. He represented me and my interests exceptionally well!"
- Joe Coury - Seattle, WA
"Our home purchase last year was an exceptionally difficult transaction. We fell in love with the very worst home in the most beautiful and picturesque neighborhood and dealt with a "for sale by suspicious, eccentric, verbally aggressive and threatening owner" that exercised every ounce of negotiation, crisis intervention, and deescalating skill that Christian could have ever offered. He delivered despite all the incredibly tenuous circumstances and we are so incredibly thankful. So many new neighbors and local (island) real estate agents have introduced themselves to us and asked- "how on earth did you get this house?" as so many had tried and the seller was infamous. We had an agent that refused to walk away or discourage us even though it meant his burden and stress in navigating this deal was immense. Thank you so much Christian- and we hope you never have a deal similar to our's again!"
- The Ramsey's - Bainbridge Island, WA
"Christian was great for us to work with. He quickly understood our goals and had our search narrowed down in no time. I hope everyone's home buyin experience could be as easy as ours was. We hunted about 4 hours and were ready to pull the trigger, that can't happen for everyone, but it wasfantastic for us."
Eric Lewis - Seattle, WA
"My husband and I met Christian at an open house. We were very new to real estate and were looking at homes to get ideas about locations and features-getting our toes wet.
He struck up a very pleasant and informative conversation with us and invited us to attend a home-buying class at his officeto go over the ins and outs of the process. We did and met his business partner, Ashley Dolan. So we ended up with two great brokers looking after us!
My husband and I are both veterans and were looking at using a VA Home Loan, which adds a little more complexity to the operation. Christian and Ashley both know the process inside and out and how to explain it to newbies. They are very proactive in making sure NO detail is overlooked. They even checked up on the bank and the VA inspectors to make sure things were moving forward with the loan. When problems arose with home inspections, they worked toward solving them and/or advised us when we should let something go & why.
They also have gave us some tips that saved us from potentially bad situations. They helped keep us motivated when things seemed slow/tedious/bleak. Most importantly, they listened to us and NEVER tried to push us out of our comfort zone, either with a house itself or with the financials. I have heard scary stories from friends, family, and co-workers about how stressful buying a house can be, but Christian and Ashley made the process MUCH easier! They give great advice and we ended up purchasing a wonderful home thanks to their efforts. Agents want to sell houses, but these two brokers want to make certain you get what you're paying for and, most importantly, that you love what you get."

"I got the sense that Christian was looking out for my best interest, not just trying to close the deal but trying to put the right deal together that worked for me and my family."
Justin & Annice Jumani - Seattle, WA
"I appreciate Christian and Ashley's attention to detail and excellent communication skills. Whenever I had a question they were quick with the right answers. Thank you for making me feel comfortable in the process."
Susie Lopez - Lacey, WA
"The was of buying a home from across the country depends largely on the real estate broker you are working with. Christian Harris made our experience as easy as it could be, given the situation. When we could fly out to Seattle [from DC], he was great with lining up as many well suited houses as we could fit in and then when we couldn't make it into town, he visited the listing, took notes, measurements and pictures to help us get the tour experience. Beyond that, Christian provided a lot of useful tips on the area and Seattle in general. It helped us better navigate around the area and also choose the neighborhoods we wanted to live in. He was always available to talk through concerns we had and explained items we had questions on. In the end, Christian helped us find our new home and we couldn't be happier with the home and the location."
Jenna & Greg - West Seattle, WA
Christian was a pleasure to work with. He helped with every detail through the whole selling process. He not only identified things worth fixing before listing to help get the most out of our time and money, he also helped find a stager, and scheduled inspections and open houses. He was very knowledgeable as to the market conditions, and operated with the most upright integrity when a few unexpected issues came up that needed to be taken care of. Although Christian doesn't have decades of real estate experience, he brings a wealth of local knowledge, construction expertise, integrity and authenticity to all he does. I would be happy to recommend Christian to anyone.
David Parker - West Seattle, WA
"Christian is an amazing realtor! I would recommend him in a heart beat. I was very impressed by how quickly he responded to all of our needs and requests. No question was silly to him, he helped us first time buyers really understand when it could have been a quite confusing and frustratingprocess. We enjoyed our time with him very much."
Roxie Lewis - Seattle, WA
"Through working with Christian as our buyers' agent, my wife & I felt we could trust him to look out for our best interests in the whole process. Christian helped us with the process of backing out of an offer and then subsequently finding a much better property and deal. The entire time he was responsive and proactive about addressing concerns and issues, and he leveraged his clearly substantial preparation and knowledge of the home selling/buying process deliver a great outcome for my wife & me.
Drew Foerster & Yeva - Magnolia, WA
"Christian, I want to thank you again for all the hard work you put in on our home sale. I really appreciated your attention to detail and keeping us informed throughout the process. I was very impressed with your forethought and ability to have the necessary steps outlined, paperwork ready to go and organized for us during the process.
In particular I appreciated your use of the Docusign system; this was a very convenient way to handle all the paperwork and signing requirements. I'm sure that I will be recommending you to any of my friends looking for an agent and as Abby and I move forward we will be using your services again.
Thanks so much"
Casey & Abby McCune - Kirkland, WA
"When JP and I decided to go to the VA homebuyers seminar, we had pretty much decided there was no way we could afford buying a home. But, because he and I knew NOTHING about the process (and there is only so much you can learn on the internet), we decided to go. Christian, Ashley and Susie (The Dream Team) not only changed our minds about buying a house, but you instilled confidence in us that we were making the right decision.
From the first day Christian and Ashley started showing us houses, I knew we had the best team working for us. It helped GREATLY that Christian have had contracting experience. JP and I don’t know anything about home repairs and knowing you had that background made us feel comfortable that we would choose the right house.
Christian also had the ability to guide us, but not be pushy or make the decision for us. We appreciated your thoughtful input on all of our “dumb” (inexperienced) questions when we were signing contracts. I can’t imagine that we would have had such a great experience-beginning to end-with any other Realtor. Buying a house is one of the biggest decisions to make in life, and Christian helped make it one of the best.
If we are ever in a position to sell or buy again, we know exactly who to call!"

"I had a great experience purchasing a property with Christian as my real estate agent. He was patient and flexible throughout the process of finding an investment property that met my needs. He was very reliable and diligent at making arrangements and following through with all the details.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy and hardworking agent."
Chad & Kezia Newton - Seattle, WA
"Christian helped us buy our new home. We were up against a very short deadline and he worked hard to ensure our negotiations went smoothly. He was engaged in every step of the process and made himself available at any time we asked. He helped us communicate with the sellers about unexpected problems revealed upon inspection. I appreciated his calm, attentive manner in what could have been very stressful situations. He sincerely wanted a positive outcome for both parties involved in the sale. He helped us to settle in. Christian clearly values the opportunity to serve. He is personable, knowledgeable and genuinely concerned about the quality of his service.
On balance I appreciate his integrity, professionalism, availability and communication skills."
