"As my family and I searched for a new location to move to pre-retirement. Our young children are now transitioning into college activities and we do not need to be where we were. We have been searching for property/community that either on or near a body of water since our family love boating and particularly fishing the fresh water of California. We found Discovery Bay just by chance using google map as we were tracing the Delta outline and you can see the communities that were present. We were already looking at other areas such as Clear Lake, Hidden Valley and as far south as Central Valley. This would be our 4th home that our family have sold and bought over the years. We have been represented by another agent in the area we have lived. Needless to say, finding a new agent and building trust would be a challenge let alone the right home and location. While searching online, we came upon Chris' website and made our initial contact. Within 15 minutes, Chris responded and we were able to schedule our first meeting with a tour of Discovery Bay community with one of Chris' assistant as he was out of town. Over the course of 6 months going back and forth as we were busy getting our previous home for listing and at the same time trying to figure out where to move to. As with many people looking to move to a new area, we had a million questions and one. But the most important question for us was whether we can build a relationship with Chris who is a new agent for our family? Over the 6 months courtship, Chris continue to show his professionalism and attentive to detail on what the transaction and our expectation should be as we are making our decision for a new community. And Chris answered all of my one million and one questions. Chris was able to help us secure an offer with contingency of the sale of our home. From the initial docu-sign through escrow and inspectaion, Chris helped us complete our tasks and met all of our requirement. As we closed on our purchase, Chris helped us with all of the necessary references for the work that we wanted done to our new home. These are referrals that Chris worked with over the years and have had work done on his own property. Trust is very key to our family and we were lucky to have worked with Chris and his team. I look forward to partner with Chris." Jim & Nenita Nguyen
"I have yet to meet Chris Soukoulis in-person-- he's not even my realtor -- yet he has proven to be an incredible resource for my family as we settled into our new home in Discovery Bay. Without reservation, Chris responded to my inquiries into basic services (water, waste, internet, etc.), even providing a reference for a local painter. I would not hesitate to use Chris, when the time comes, to sell our current home. Thank you, Chris!" Brennan G
"Awesome!!! Chris was able to make the impossible possible. I had another agent for a couple months prior to finding Chris. I was so discouraged. I wanted to use my VA loan and did not want to go to the max amount approved. When we finally found Chris he had us out to see houses, made an offer, negotiated under asking price and closed the deal all within 12 hours. The closing was seamless and the entire expereince with Chris was great! If you need an agent this is your guy!" Donna Lucero
Chris is hands down the best realtor in the Discovery Bay and surrounding areas. He was by far the most attentive and supportive realtor we have ever used. His negotiation skills can't be beat. One of the things I really respected is that he does not mislead his buyers just to make a sale. He's honest and is with you every step of the way. Chris went above and beyond for us on many occassion during and after our buying process. His patience with his clients is top notch. He has been available to help with almost anything even of it was outside his job scope. We are beyond satisfied with our purchase, our experience with Chris and highly recommend him for your real estate needs! Chris has all the leads you need to make your dreams come true Pam & John Andres
"Chris was amazing to work with. From the moment my wife and I met him we were impressed and knew he was the right person for our job. Chris was very knowledgeable and only promised us what he could guarantee us, but gave us a lot more then that. This was the first house my wife and I were selling, and Chris took it upon himself to help us through every step of the process. Being a young couple we are very busy, and Chris adapted to that by communicating with me late at night and via whatever means I needed. I could not believe how fast Chris got our house sold, and not only got us what we were asking for, but much more!! I would thoroughly recommend him, and will continue to use him in the future." Ed Loss
My wife and I recently put our home on the market and we contacted Chris to help us find our new home. Chris immediately went to work and found us a "new" home on the market. Not only was he quick in doing so, but he also got us a reduction on the asking price! I highly recommend Mr. Soukoulis if you are buying or selling your home. Xavier C.
Chris was great to work with, everything so far has been a pleasure and easy. Very quick to respond to text messages. Thank you for all your work you did for us. We appreciate it! Travis & Cindy Cornett

"Chris is a wonderful real estate agent. Chris is extremely professional and knowledge and my fiance' and I couldn't have been more pleased to work with Chris. Chris found us the perfect home we were looking for and made arrangements to show us the home right away, in the middle of his busy weekend. Chris quickly put an offer in for us the same day and it was quickly accepted, below asking price. Chris went above and beyond to assist us in the purchase of our new home. The whole process was extremely smooth and Chris made the process stress-free for us. I will refer all of my family and friends to Chris in the future." Ryan Kathain
I'll try to be brief but we interviewed a number of real estate professionals and we picked Chris. And boy glad that we did. Not only was he professional but his knowlege and insight of the market was right on. Chris sold our home in four days. Couldn't have asked for any better results. His personality, communication and honesty is the best. This review may sound to good to be true but it is the truth. Would we use Chris again? Absolutely, In fact we used Chris to buy our new home. If you want results..... You need to call Chris. Ben and Karen Gullo
"Chris, Has stuck thru 2 years of false starts and changes in plans by my wife and I regarding moving to California and buying a home. Chris sent us sometimes 5-6 homes per day and they were always within the parameters we ask him to search within. Chris listens to the client , he's a total pro and even though we ended up not buying in California he was a professional and wished us the best. Thanks DK & JK" Dennis Kayser
"Chris is a true professional, Realestate transactions have become difficult and tedious at best considering the mounds of paperwork required. Chris is a kind patient professional willing to explain the details leaving you with complete understanding. I highly recommend Chris, good people are hard to find in such a difficult transaction but excellent ones are even harder to find like Chris. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family... Chris I would like to thank you for helping us with a great deal and a smooth and fast closing on our new home. Best of Luck." Courtney Ringstrom
We were extremely satisfied with Chris's expertise, efficiency, promptness, guidance and knowledge. We highly recommend Chris as the best Real estate agent in the area. Every phase from the start, contact and communication through the house hunting was done with a sense of personal touch, care and kindness. Chris was always greeting us with a warm smile whenever we went around seeing homes. He took us to various areas and never ever lost his cool even when we kept searching. Once we found our home Chris helped us to close promptly and also was thorough with all inspections, signing of documents and closing. We not only found our dream home but we also found a great friend. We highly recommend Chris to be your real estate agent who never tires,works amazingly and is the best in town. Mala Jham
"Chris Is An Amazing Realtor. He made an exciting yet daunting task of buying a new home effortless. We Grew To Trust Chris Based On His Knowledge And Expertise I Appreciate His Straight Forward Honesty. Chris is candid and will not encourage you nor allow you to purchase a home that is not a good investment for you and your family. He took his time to research each and every aspect of the home to ensure we made an educated offer. Chris is a genuine advocate and he took the time to get to know us and what we wanted in a home. His eagerness to learn our family dynamics made him the perfect realtor." Andrea Blake
"I really liked working with Chris. He was always prompt, very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. I relied heavily on his expertise and the transaction went smoothly. I would recommend Chris to anyone." Victoria Kennedy
"Chris assisted us in the emotional process of selling our beloved first home into which we had put many years of love and energy. When we first contacted Chris he was out of town. Even so, he answered our many questions with patience, honestly and in a down to earth manner and followed up with comps that very afternoon. We loved this about Chris as well as his track record so chose him above the other 3 realtors we interviewed. He appreciated our home and made realistic suggestions and handled everything beautifully and efficiently from the photography and brochures to his marketing and negotiating. When we had questions he answered his phone personally which we really appreciated. As Chris anticipated, he had offers before our open house, and multiple offers greatly exceeding our our listing price in 5 days. Closing was easy and fast. Chris is professional, fun and friendly and we could not have wished for a better Agent and selling experience! Thank you so much Chris!! Cheryl and Tom Ruby
"It was a wonderful experience working with Chris. Everything is top-notch from the photographs/flyer to the contract negotiations. He is forthright, honest, helpful, and fun. The stress of marketing and selling a house because of the emotional attachment to home was minimized by his confidence and knowledge as he walked and talked us through the process. Thank you Chris!" Robin Gallagher
"Chris was awesome from start to finish. He's always quick with a response weather it is a call, text, or email. Being first time home buyers we had many questions. He was always able to answer them and guide us in the right direction. We would definitely recommend Chris to anyone that's looking for a new home." Amanda Wood
"Chris was very helpful in all phases of our transaction. He will work very hard to make things happen for you and your family from start to finish. I would highly recommend Chris if you are planning to buy a home in Discovery Bay." Don Hasson
Chris was very straightforward, and no BS. He know Disco Bay, 1's can offer his insight. He is extremely responsive, especially in the early days when we had just made the offer. He responded to all my text messages right away. He is available when you want to see a house, and he offers expert advice. There is no one better than Chris. Jay Katz
Thank you so much for all your work! There has been no pressure working with you. We found what we like and more than happy with this house. We're so happy that we have you as our Realtor and definitely going to recommend to our friends or anyone we know. And thank you for the gift. We're looking forward to take a trip there someday. :) Pantila Pasatang
Chris helped us buy our first house! We had no idea what we were doing in the beginning and he helped us not only understand every step of the process, but he also helped us close super fast! It was an absolute pleasure working with him. He understood our very specific needs we needed met, and was definitely a part of our team. I couldn't recommend him higher. Seriously. Tarah Sanders
Mr. S. Is surely one of the best realtor in the Bay Area . He is very professional, knowledgeable , and will do an extra mile to make transactions completed in a timely passion . I called him an M&M , because he may seemed to be hard on the outside , get the highest bid for the house , but being very soft-hearted to understand the difficulties of transition in housing . My deepest greatfulness for all the help he had done . Excellent job Evangeline Ramirez
We went into the endeavor of selling our house with frighteningly little knowledge of the processes involved. Looking back, Chris validated every reason we had for trusting a professional to do the job. He was confident at every turn (and backed it up with results), from how much our house would sell for, to when it would sell. At the same time, he set very realistic expectations so that nothing was a surprise. That made our task of finding a house to move into (and the juggling/timing involved) a lot less stressful as well. As I have since learned, the end of the process is the most stressful, especially when you are trying to buy a house on the other end, and having Chris there to go above and beyond to work with our buying agent, loan agent and all the other parties involved to move things along as quickly as possible proved to be invaluable! We highly recommend hiring Chris if you want your home selling process to be something that fills you with joy and anticipation rather than misery and frustration. Jim & Shannon L.
Although we are not planning to move to Discovery Bay until 2018, Chris readily and happily gave us a grand tour of the town last week, to help get us familiarized with the community. He was extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and we highly recommend him as your realtor if you, too, are planning a move to the area. Celeste Smith
Chris Soukoulis helped me sell my Brentwood house. It is my rental house, where my son Jim Lin has been living and renting for the past four years. During this listing period, Chris has been in directly contact with my Jim and has been advising him all the procedures. My son often related Chris advice to me. Jim said many times that Chris has been very very helpful. Chris has called me a couple of time, I too found him very professional and helpful. I am very thankful to him for selling the house in a very short time. Yulan Lin
Chris was Awesome! We bought a home in Discovery Bay. We made a call on one of his listings and he made himself avaliable that same day. After visiting multiple homes you could recognize his expertise not only as a realtor, but he was also knowledgable in all aspects to the homes construction, docks, the builders that built out the Discovery Bay developments for the lakes and golf course. He negotiated with the sellers realtor and provided comps to offer them fair market value that saved us 30k. Chris will be selling our Brentwwod home soon. Brett Swensen
Chris is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is professional, honest, smart, a great communicator...a real people person. He worked with us to find the perfect home for our large family of 7! It wasn't easy...we had a long list of "must-haves". He was patient with us and kept an eye out for the perfect listing. Chris was always available to help us, give sound advice, meet up to show us a house, or answer any questions we had. He found this house and was able to get us a showing the first day it was listed. He guided us in making an offer that got accepted and helped every step of the way to ensure everything went off without a hitch. He took care of everything! This was the easiest home buying experience I've ever had. I highly recommend Chris to anyone that is looking to buy or sell. You won't be disappointed! Stacy Schmid
Excellent. Agent , contractor history, helper , advisor and great new friend. I must have called or texted Chris 2-3 times a day and he responded promptly. He found our Discovety bay , Calif ornia, home for us to buy , while we were in Hurricane Matthew in WDW Florida. It took about 7 days to seal the deal... And he sold out old condo on about ten days !!! Full service! He was nice enough to help and represent out condo buyer too. Highly recnend Chris and his staff . I did find better financing myself , but Chris cooperated with All OUR DREAMS AND WISHES!! Dr. Marianne Spamer
This is the first time that I have ever sold a home. I couldn't be happier with how the transaction went. Chris gave us solid advise on how to price our home and how to take it to market. What I really liked is that he gave us all of the advise and knowledge that he had from his years of experience but he gave us free reign on how we wanted to go about selling it. I took his advise and we had multiple offers over the asking price in the first day. Within 48 hours we had excepted an offer and he took care of everything. I felt like we were dealing with a somewhat difficult buyers agent but he handled it all in a professional manner keeping everything moving forward. We are in the process of looking for a newer bigger home for our new blended large family of 7 and I wouldn't trust anyone more than Chris to represent us in purchasing our new property. Dan & Stacy Schmid
Chris was super knowledgeable and knows Discovery Bay and the surrounding area. We moved from the Bay Area and did not know much about the area and Chris showed us around and made sure we found the right home for us in our retirement years. He was such an asset during our search and we recommend Chris to anyone looking for a home. Thank you Chris for making our goals a reality! Elie & Mazal Benabou
Chris is our first choice of real estate professional agent when selling our rental house in Brentwood. He has local market knowledge, great people skills and professional knowledge about remodeling the house. He helped us renovate our rental house and sold for a price above our expectations. When the first deal fails, he guides us to relist our property and sold it in 3 days with a higher price. He is an expert in negotiations. We made the right decision of choosing him as our seller agent. Leo Chun
We went through two buyers agents before working with Chris. Fate literally bought him to us for many reasons! What we loved about working with Chris is that he genuinely listened to our needs. He steered us in the right direction, but was never pushy. He communicates well, and would make himself or his staff available for showings. We also appreciated his honesty. He would let us know when he didn't think a property may be right for us, but he also told us to walk in escrow when things with bad with another property. He was patient, was able to put up with us, and he has a great sense of humor. I cannot recommend him enough and have already done so to my friends and family. Thanks Chris! Kristine & Dennis Gornto
Chris was outstanding! I had spoke to him months earlier about my wants and needs, at that time there really wasn`t anything on the market that my wife and I liked,or was out of our price range. He said "we will keep looking" don`t settle for just anything. He contacted me about a home that just came on the market, after a rather complex deal (and I was appreciative of his experience) we are moving into our dream home this weekend!! He was so good in fact that we are listing our other home for him to sell, Honest, reliable, very experienced, what more could you ask for? Call Chris! Larry &Terri Clark
Buying my first home was nerve wrecking! Chris was recommended from a friend, and I am so glad that I decided to use him as my realtor. He was realistic with me when it came to homes I was potentially interested in and homes that I wanted to make offers on. He is very good at reading the unwritten words dealing with selling prices and selling realtors. He definitely made my home buying experience fun and entertaining! There was never an extended time that I had to go without a response on any questions I had! He definitely knows the ins and outs of his job and the locations of which he is selling homes. He was honest with me when I told him I was potentially looking for houses outside of his area, and instead of using me as potential income he informed me that I may want to use a different realtor. He was very patient with me and the 8 million questions I must have asked! I for sure recommend him to anyone, especially if you are buying your first home! Victoria Reneau
It was great experience to have Chris as my agent to sell my rental property in Discovery Bay. He is absolutely trust worthy, detail oriented always updated me the progress. He answer all my questions in timely fashion. He is on top of my list to refer to anyone who needs agent in Discovery Bay area. You will be in a good hand!!! Shiang Yu Carney
We were referred to Chris and we could not have been more impressed and pleased with him and how thorough he was through the entire process of selling our home. Chris is diligent, knowledgeable and straight-forward and was always available to answer our questions. We will be recommending him to family and friends for any real estate needs Jeremy & Felena McBroom
I appreciated that Chris really listened to what I had to say. He always responded to my questions no matter how simple. He was patient and I never felt pressured. I felt he was always looking out for my best interest not just trying to sell me something for a sale. It was a very good experience. Donna Rizo
Chris Soukoulis is exactly the kind of Realtor I was hoping to find to sell my house. He is experienced, honest, knowledgeable and an efficient communicator. His experience and professionalism made the whole process painless and easy for us. I can highly recommend using Chris S for your real estate needs. Ryan & Armene Boatright
Chris Soukoulis is fantastic; process was very smooth. All questions and concerns were addressed on time and with expertise. Chris is an expert in the Discovery Bay Area. Mark & Shana Lenz
Very easy process with Chris. He understands the market here in Discovery Bay and worked the best deal for us. He and his assistant were very flexible to our schedules as well. Very pleasant to work with. David Fine & Michelle Wood
Chris Soukoulis made us feel right at home, as though we were welcomed family. His level of care was nothing short of excellent - he was looking out for us, making him trustworthy. He listened well to our concerns about making a move after 42 years of living in the same house - with lots of recommendations based on a high level of expertise. Chris set us up with some really nice people to handle inspections of our current home at reasonable costs. Chris's character and personal values are at the cornerstone of his relationship building with clients and partners - we highly recommend calling on him for your real estate needs! Pat & Betty Mullen
Chris, We received your invitation, and I must say I was nicely surprised. That was very thoughtful of you, to invite us to your place in Vancouver. You have been a true gentleman, and I will enthusiastically refer you to anyone who is looking to move to Discovery Bay. You have done more than the agent I hired to sell my home in Cupertino, although they were making 4 x the commission. I have nothing but good things to say about you. Fayez & Rachel Kassar
Chris is the best! His knowledge of the area and market are second to none. Chris goes the extra mile using a professional photographer to make your house shine and all the current tech and social media to get your property to all potential buyers. Chris ensured my house sold at top price in less than a week. You just can't ask for more than that. Cat Daugherty
We weren't familiar with the Discovery Bay area and needed a local expert. Chris showed up as one of the first hits for search results for the area. We talked to a few agents and selected Chris. Chris first showed us all around Discovery Bay, pointing out not only the good things about every street, but also the drawbacks. We then looked at a number of homes in our price range. Chris has a background in construction, having owned business for more than 20 years. This is extremely helpful as he will look at upgrades/reconstruction and tell you if they used high quality materials or not, as well as the quality of the workmanship. This is especially helpful in Discovery Bay as many of the homes are older and have been updated. We purchased a beautiful home that has all original kitchen and bathrooms, but as Chris pointed out, a house that was meticulously maintained as the original stove and ovens look brand new. We will be updating the house to turn it into a dream home. Not only would I recommend Chris, but I have already put a friend in touch with him who is also interested in the area. Michael & Jane Ullrich
Now living in FL with no access to my property in CA, Chris went above and beyond to ensure everything was taken care of quickly and efficiently. It was a pleasure working with him and his team. Cathy Connors
We came into contact with Chris by pure chance as his name was listed on a home that we were looking at that was in foreclosure. Chris provided us with an abundance of knowledge when it comes to the different processes of buying and selling a home and was very instrumental in the buying of our new home, Lord know he has the patients of a Saint cause we had tons of questions and he answered them all promptly, and in the selling of our old home. Again walking us step by step through the process, keeping constant contact and providing updates on a regular basis no matter where he's at he always made us feel as though we were a priority. In conclusion Chris is by far the best Real Estate agent that I've ever had the pleasure of working with and would encourage anyone that's looking to buy or sell a home to seek out his services because he's one of the best. Darrell Dortch & Wanda Gibbs
As a first time homebuyer I had no idea where to start. After reading some reviews I found that Chris possessed the qualities that I was hoping for in a realtor. He is hard-working, available, not pushy, extremely knowledgeable, professional, and highly sincere. You can tell he cares for his clients and does everything in his power to get exactly what they may want or need. He was able to find us a dream home here in our beautiful town. I just want to say thank you to Chris and refer him to anybody like me who didn't know where to start or just anyone looking for a realtor that comes highly recommended. We are truly blessed to have found him! HE IS AMAZING!!! ???? Zarah & Sabrina Mehr
If you want a man that treats you like you are the only person he has as a client, select Chris. His communication skills are the best. He babysat the house through inspections, repairs and all the rest that goes along with selling a house. He sold the house in one day after sitting on the market for six months without a bid with another agency. Bill & Cheryl Holy
I strongly recommend Chris Soukoulis as the best realtor in contra costa county. He impressed me by his knowledge and his energy back in 2010 when I bought a house in Discovery Bay through Chris. We kept in touch until recently I sold my house with Chris again. I was putting my house on the market Nov,2015 ,during holiday season, there were no buyers, Chris gave me right and reasonable suggestions so that I was able to sell my house on time. Chris is a knowledgeable and experience professional real estate person. Chris is a trustworthy and honest person also. I really appreciated his help he gave me Yulan Lang
I first interviewed a few Real Estate Agents to see who would be the best fit for my husband and I in the purchase of our retirement home in Discovery Bay, CA. I wanted to find someone that was upfront, personable and easy to work with in addition to someone that could correlate effectively with our personalities. Chris was truly on top of our needs, always listening to our comments to find our true wants and desires. He was always up front and honest, we always knew the positives and negatives of the homes we were looking at and if he did not know he’d call and asked the appropriate questions and found the answers. Chris spent many hours and weekends setting up appointments and viewing everything we asked or he thought was worthy of review. No surprises, no let downs, just the straight goods. Chris was definitely efficient, responsive (at all times) and patient, always putting our needs and seeking our best interest as we walked through and reviewed and finally purchased our beautiful home. I would recommend and entrust Chris to anyone who wants to buy/sell a home. THANK YOU CHRIS! Tom & Robbin Masiewicz
Chris' negotiation skills are incredible. He was able to get us the home of our dreams well within our budget. When Chris says he is available any time, he means it. 7 days a week, we were able to reach him and get our questions answered. He truly understood what we wanted and did not try to pressure us into anything we did not want or could afford. It was an amazing experience working with Chris and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Discovery Bay. Dennis & Laurie Crider
If I could give 10 stars I would!! Chris was incredible to work with! Being a first time seller he walked me through the process of selling my home and helped me buy a new home. He works with an incredible finance agent (Bill) and between the two of them and their wonderful teams the process went very efficiently and smoothly. Chris is very knowledgeable if the market and timing and he is very professional. I highly recommend him and if I need any help in the future he will be my "go to guy". Leslie Cook
Chris was beyond AMAZING and from the moment I spoke with him, I felt comfortable! He gave me a ton of information, he was honest, I trusted him every step of the way, he wasn't pushy and he was very professional and I would refer him in a second to anyone. I was having trouble finding a home and getting a deal to go through and Chris was fabulous on making this happen! He responded back in a timely manner, answered all my questions, and walked me through the process of purchasing my first home! He was excellent to work with every step of the way! I highly recommend him and he is filled with knowledge. The best move I ever made was working with Chris as a realtor! I am now a homeowner and I have a home that I absolutely LOVE! Kelly Goff
I would 100% recommend Chris to anyone looking for a successful and professional experience with their real estate transaction. He is able to answer any and all questions you may have throughout your process. He is very honest and will help guide you to the home that fits your needs. He is knowledgeable in every aspect of the business. I have never worked with anyone more responsive than Chris. Even while on vacation in Florida AND WHILE ON A CRUISE SHIP, this man responded to each and every one of my communications. He understands and relates to all walks of life and made my home search a great experience. He helped me find just the right home for me and he will help you find yours! Give him a call. Valerie Bayley
Chris has absolutely been a pleasure working with. He helped my family find a new home sweet home. A great experience from beginning to closing. He listened to our needs and went above and beyond by getting us the best deal/purchase price for our home. Not only is he great at what he does, he is also very personable, genuine and easy going. We have no problems recommending Chris to anyone looking for a great home buying experience. Fritzie Nacinopa
When I was selling my house in Discovery Bay, I decided to use Chris as my realtor. I was very happy with his professionalism and knowledge of the Discovery Bay real estate market. It was a smooth transaction from start to finish. I would highly reccommend using Chris if you are looking to sell or buy in Discovery Bay or surrounding areas. Thanks Chris Danny B.
Chris was wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the market and did a great job for us. He was always available, quick to respond to calls or emails and provided excellent customer service. I would absolutely contact Chris to take care of any of our real estate needs. Janet U.
Chris is unique and brings more to the table than any Realtor I have ever met. He not only knows everything about the neighborhoods that he specializes in, but as a former contractor he is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to estimating what it will cost to have any post sale work done to make your new home your dream come true. He is a delight to work with and his list of referrals is worth its weight in gold. I would recommend him to anyone who truly wants a Realtor who is on their side whether buying or selling. Elliot & Doris H.
“Chris did an incredible job for me on selling my home in Discovery Bay. Too good in fact considering that it sold in 48 hours for asking price and I was officially turned homeless. I was having another property being built in Livermore at the time that was not ready so you can imagine my surprise when I got on the phone with Chris. He was always in constant communication both day and night through the whole process. He helped to walk me through all of the paperwork so nothing was missed. Most importantly the house closed without even a hick up. Anyone can feel confident working with him on any property in the Discovery Bay market.” Brendan McGuigan
It was a pleasure doing our real estate transaction with Chris Soukoulis. My husband and I were interested in buying retirement property in Discovery Bay. We came in from Chicago, to look at some homes. We didn't have much time to spend looking. We called on some houses, but, some Realtors didn't get back to us, or didn't really have much information. Not Chris! He answered his phone right away, and even came and drove us around to give a feel for the area. He made us feel at home in Discovery Bay, teaching us the different communities, schools, and activities. When we found our dream house, Chris, made sure the transaction went smooth, from the offer all the way to the closing. Now we can enjoy our retirement in beautiful Discovery Bay! Sue and Lee Feret
I had the pleasure of working with Chris on the purchase of our first home in Discovery Bay. Our search there came suddenly and Chris was one of the first realtors that I met. Chris took the time to find out about our family and lifestyle and made us feel very comfortable. The market was to say the least very crazy and fast paced. It seemed that each time we found a home to look at it was under contract by the time we got back to the office. Chris let us know that this was typical due to the times and the prices of the houses. He never slowed his pace in finding new properties for us to look at. We finally found the perfect place. From our first time looking at the house up to the time we put in our offer and moved in Chris was always there with us guiding us thru the process. He even found a mover to relocate us from San Jose. We still see and talk to Chris as he has not only has been our realtor but has become a friend. We will be looking in the near future at a home on fast water and will not hesitate to call Chris to make our 2nd dream home a reality. Michael Matienzo
Chris was wonderful. He really facilitated our finding the perfect home in the perfect area and was extremely patient with me, my daughter and granddaughter as we changed our mind 150 times. It is a woman's prerogative. He was very knowledgeable about the area and about the basic construction of homes, which was very helpful for us women. Chris also assisted where he could in the closing process and helped everything to run much smoother. We spent a lot of time with Chris during our search and found him to be genuinely likeable in every way. I would certainly recommend him to anyone searching for a new home. Wanda M.
After meeting Chris, our house hunting became a focused event. We had selected the Discovery Bay area with our "wish list" in hand. Chris responded with listings and walk through of properties matching our needs. His knowledge of the area and background as a contractor eliminated "wasted time" and insured that our interest were taken care of. After four offers, we were able to purchase a home that met our needs. Chris' patience, persistence and personality was a winning combination for us! Randy & Kayson C.
I was looking for rental property in Discovery Bay and I found Chris's website. I was unfamiliar with the area and needed someone with knowledge of the area. I sent him a brief message from his site concerning what I was looking for and he returned my message right away. Chris gave me a list of houses that fit my needs and quickly set up an appointment to look at the properties. Chris was puntuctual, professional, and gave us a great feel for the area in and around Discovery Bay. He put our concerns at ease and helped us get the rental property we really wanted. Chris, let me know if this helps. Thanks again we really like it up here. Also, I am looking for work right now my background is in the service industry dealing with interior landscapes. But at this point I am willing to do anything just to keep busy. If you hear of anything let me know. Thanks. Geoff & Roya Galindo
Morning, noon or night, a text message, a phone call or an email - Chris's response time was always instantaneous! Being that this was my first home purchase on my own, I had a laundry list of questions that were always answered with respect, with patience, and with the information I was looking for. Not only did Chris keep me abreast of EVERY new property in my price range, he also did some research on his own and helped me think outside my own box! I ended up purchasing a home that I may never have looked at and in the end, this home is my dream home come true! If you want a realtor who knows Discovery Bay and will work with YOU, then you have found him - Chris I can't thank you enough! Colleen R.
We met Chris via internet and were very pleased with our choice for a realtor. We decided to move out of the Bay Area after living there for over 60 years and have been very happy with our decision to move to Discovery Bay. It was with the help of Chris in finding our new home, that made our transition a smooth one. He is not only a great realtor and follows through with what he promises, but he also has a wealth of resources of sevices you need to access when you move to a new area. Thank you Chris we really appreciate you and your professionalism. Judy N.
OH by the way Jody and I want to thank you for all your hard work on our deal you made our Christmas and New Years come true.All the good things we heard about you are true and we will recommend you highly in future to all who ask! Have a great Christmas:) John & Jody Sodaro
Chris is a true gem in the Real Estate Community. He has assisted our family to purchase Investment Properties in the Discovery Bay/Brentwood CA area. Without Chris I'm sure we would have not purchased the homes as quickly as we did. Chris really listened to our needs and was constantly e-mailing and calling us when he felt a property suited our needs. He was quick to setup an appointment to look at the property. When we were ready to make an offer Chris really fought for us and worked with the selling agent to get our offer accepted. When it was time to rent Chris gave us candid advice and was supportive at every step of the way. I can not only recommend Chris professionally but can recommend him as a friend. We truly built a caring friendship with Chris. You can trust Chris like you can with your own family. If you are looking to purchase in the Brentwood/Discovery Bay area make sure your first phonecall is to Chris. You have my endorsement and will be so thankful you contacted Chris and will continue your relations with him after the purchase. Daniel Onn
We highly recommend Chris Soukoulis. As a buyer's agent, he never missed our phone calls no matter how early or late. He is very knowledgeable not only in real estate, but also in construction. Since this is the first time for us to own a water front house, we found his advice so helpful. Chris is a nice and warm-hearted person, even our escrow had been closed, when we call him for questions, he still glad to help us out. Ruth Yang
A while back I was looking for an investment property in Brentwood/Discovery Bay area. Luckily I found Chris who helped me buy the exact house I was looking for. It was a foreclosure property needing repairs and turns out Chris has extensive contracting experience and has a good team of contractors to get the house ready for rent. We had the house ready and rented out in no time. Considering my busy schedule, I was looking for a no-nonsense realtor who was knowledgeable, responsive, technology savvy, and could communicate effectively over the email, Chris fitted the bill and I will definitely recommend him. J. Hassan
If you are looking for an Agent that will go the extra mile, works tirelessly 24/7, is always available for your calls, that is market savy, a great negotiator, provides guidance and works with you with respect and as if you were a friend or family then you want Chris Soukoulis. After looking for a home with another agent and basically doing our own research with little guidance and continually (8 times) being beat out on our offers we decided to look for another agent. This was the best decission we could have made. Chris knows the market, builds relationships with "selling agents" ( he is well respected and knows may agents in the market) which we found is key when trying to buy a home. We were actually "beat" by a cash offer but because Chris had built a relationship with the selling agent we were contacted and our offer got accepted when the first buyer reconsidered. Without Chris' guidance and the raport he built with the selling agent I'm sure we would still be looking for a home. Gabe Duran
Chris sold us 2 homes and he was very patient with me and I have already recommended him to our friends parents. He truly got to know me and understand what I was looking for in our houses. I would recommend him to anyone in that area. When I need to sell - I will contact him again! Thank Chris :) Suzanne Service
He followed through on every promptly detail as they came up. It was a short sale that needed a lot of extra attention. His hard work made it so the deal could go through! Thanks Chris Richard McCurley
I would highly recommend Chris to assist in purchasing/selling a home. I was in the market to lease my home in the 94513 area since I was going to relocate and it wasn't leasing. I decided to sell it instead with Chris' help. Not only did I get $25,000 over my asking price but he was able to complete the sale smoothly even after I relocated 3 hours away. He was always available for my questions and was able to find some clients to buy my house in a few weeks! If that isn't exceptional service....I don't know what is! Sofia Arteaga
Chris went above and beyond in helping us find a home that we liked. He spent several days during our limited time in California during our first visit showing us every available home in the area. He was able to show us a model for the home we ultimately wound up buying even though it was located in an area other than the one in which we were looking. He even spent his birthday standing on line early in the morning to make sure we got the lot which we wanted. Chris is the kind of realtor you always hope you'll be able to have represent you. Amy Hsu and Bill Cussen
Chris is one of the sharpest agents I have ever met, He is honest! he knows the market and the areas he sells homes in, He is great with handling your listing, and he will sell your home with ease to the seller. If you are looking for an Agent Chris is the one for you he will take time with a buyer and get the best deal to suit a buyers needs It's not about a comisson to Chris It's all about making sure the buyer/seller being happy with the largest purchase in their lifetime. I recommend him AJ Anthony Tarantino
Chris is excellent to work with. He is very knowledgable of the local market and is extremely responsive and timely. Chris is a well known quantity in the real estate market and his experience in the area opened doors to us in the home buying process. I would recommend Chris to anyone in need of a buyers agent with no hesitation. Todd Gilgert
Outstanding just about says it all. Chris was wonderful to work with and made the process easy. Met us at the house a number of times before and after the sale. His knowledge of construction and number of years as a local Realtor make Chris the go to guy when shopping for a home in Discovery Bay or Brentwood. Jim Bruce
Responsiveness, capability and execution is superb. He is on track to sell over 100+ homes and may never sleep but this breath of knowledge and the experience working in the area makes him capable of knowing a lot of facts such as HOA fees, higher special taxes in new developments is key when making decisions. Phillip LaCorte
Chris is an outstanding agent. We were moving to a city for a job relocation and knew nothing about the area. I decided to start looking at homes on various websites and if I saw a home that interested us I would email the agent. The first day I emailed at least 15 different agents. Within the hour Chris had emailed me back about the property giving me all in the info needed and was willing to speak to me over the phone. (No other agent I emailed ever wrote or called me back.) This excellent communication continued throughout our entire house looking experience. I always had Chris calling me back immediately over questions about homes, prices, area info, etc. (and trust me I had a lot not knowing the area). He was always available to take us to look at homes working around our schedule. He made us feel like we were his most valued clients everyday. We have 2 very young kids that did not exaclty find the home buying experience exciting. Chris never even seemed to be bothered by the crying, stopping for diaper changes, snack time and the constant trying to keep them entertained while we looked at many homes. Chris had evan began to develop a sense of when he knew I already wasn't interested in the home and would move us on instead of trying to convince us this was the one for us. He was extremely good at figuring out what a home will sell for and got us a better deal than we expected. We trusted him through the entire home buying process and he never let us down. Everyone he has recommended to us has also been amazing from lenders, contractors, restuarants, etc. I really can't say enough good things about Chris and the wonderful job he did for us finding our new home. I have already recommended him to many of my friends and will continue to recommend him to anyone else in need of an agent. Mark & Tammy Varnum
Chris, I already recommended you on Trulia, but I want to repeat here as well, that you are the greatest agent in US! This deal has been executed super efficient, super smooth and from super far away. I am truly glad that we were privileged to have you on our side on both transactions for this house. I will certainly trouble you in the future when my family moves to California later on. Hui Cong
Chris is an outstanding real estate agent. We were relocating to Discovery Bay and he kept up informed via email of all properties on the market in our price range. He was always available to show us the properties we were interested in. He made our moving process easy. It was a pleasure doing business with him. We would highly recommend him to anyone searching for a home in the Discovery Bay/Brentwood area. Greg & Sharon England
I met Chris to help me sell my house located in the East Bay area. Chris, made sure I was well informed and comfortable prior to selling house. His knowledge of the East Bay area plus his immense real state experience resulted in the sale of my house in a short period of time. Chris, listened to my opinion and answered all my open questions that I had. He is an honest, punctual and above all a gentleman ready to help you. In my case, he made sure I had all the necessary needed documentations to close the sale and kept me informed all the time throughout the sale process. I recommend Chris to anyone who wants an honest, experienced, friendly and outstanding real state agent. Michele M. Cecchi
This was my first time buying a home and Chris was the first and only agent I have dealt with. I had a good feeling about him when I was searching for one and I was right. Chris has answered all of my questions, explained everything to me if I didn't understand anything AND called me right back whenever I had to leave him a message at anytime of the day. He has made my process very smooth and painless and he is a very patient person. Chris will always be the one I am contacting if I am ever to sell or even buy another home. THANKS CHRIS!!! Dany Seth

Chris has set the bar for realtors. He is responsive to clients needs and represents them well in the negotiation process. I recommend him very highly. I purchased my home over two years ago and I still call him from time to time regarding the market. I respect him and trust his knowledge. Carol Duran
We met Chris by chance as we did not know anyone in the area when we began to shop for a new home. Chris knew the area very well as he has lived in Discovery Bay for some time. He was responsive to all of our questions and was always a simple phone call away. The process began with a question process about what we were looking for in a home and by the very next day Chris had several homes that met what we wanted. We finally found a home that was perfect for us and ended up buying. We still see Chris to this day as he not only has become our realtor but a close friend as well. I will not hesitate when the time comes for us to buy a home on the water to call Chris again. Mike R
Chris is a great realtor. He never hesitated to show my me and my husband a house at a moments notice. Always pleasant to work with and never pushy. His down to earth manner was a plus! Moving here from back east, my husband and I didn't quite understand the way things were done here and Chris was very patient with us! He will be our realtor when we need him next time! Susan Lattizori
Chris, thanks so much for your time yesterday. Definitely the best experience we've had with a Realtor, ever! As we get closer to putting our house on the market, we will keep an eye on the listings and get in touch as soon as we have a better idea of what we are looking for. Most important in that area is being on the water. Regards, Don Don Wilkins
Held open houses each of which yielded offers. If there was a question or concern he was right on top of it. He even returned calls while on vacation. We had moved away and he kept an eye on the house when we couldn't. Jim and Lori Eastment
By chance, my family met Chris through a phone call from a listing on the internet. From that moment forward, we built a relationship that led us to both buy and sell our home through him. Chris is a very personable, professional and knowledgeable agent that I would highly recommend and use again. We were extremely satisfied with how hard he worked and how he quickly replied to all our questions and concerns. Thank you Chris!! We love our new home. Lisa Yano
Chris has been really a pleasure to work with since the first day we met him. We randomly read his reviews online when we were about to start looking to buy a home. And from the very first day he totally exceeded his recommendations. He is an avid listener and very patient. Specially with our work Vipul Gupta
Chris was amazing to work with and made the process of buying a house as easy and seamless as it can get. He was available night and day, always picked up the phone, was exceptionally knowledgable, and provided good insight when asked. I will definitely call him again for future purchases. Mike Fredlund
When it came time to sell our house in Discovery Bay, I was looking for a very experienced agent who is knowledgeable about the area and could do a great job selling the home. Chris was the perfect agent for us. He went above and beyond by recommending, negotiating, scheduling and coordinating with the painter and window cleaner. He inspected their work thoroughly and got the house ready to sell, and it sold quickly for a good price. We live 40 miles away from that home and we are busy with 3 young kids so we really appreciate all the time and money that Chris helped us save. We would highly recommend Chris to any of our family and friends. Jamie Ho
Chris was great to work with from day one! No pressure just great support. He understood what we were looking for and was great at providing feedback on the home and if it was a good deal. If you are looking to buy or sell we would highly recommend Chris! He helped us buy our new home, which we love, and sell our existing home. He also managed all the specifics along the way. Jim Yano
Chris helped me both sell and buy a new home. He sold my old home amazingly fast and for more than what I was asking. He was available 24/7 and guided me through the entire process of buying and selling. You wont find an agent who will work harder for you. Dave Cook
Chris informed me very well because as I was totally French neophyte in the process of buying a home in California. It is very responsive and available immediately following calls and mails. Pierre Segers
Chris was an amazing agent. Not only did he sell our home he also helped us purchase our new home. We sold our house within a month, and was in escrow with the new the next week. Chris really pulled through for us to get everything to close together. There isn't another agent I would ever use. I would recommend him to everyone I know. Very honest, he tells you the truth and then we'll let you decide never forcing your hand. He isn't only an agent but, but a great person and friend. Jeremy & Kelly Zipton
I never see a real state agent that is so great at his job. Chris went out of his to help us sell our house Chris always put us at ease in every way. We were so unsure about everything and everytime we talk to Chris we felt a lot better and everything went very smoothly. We sold the house in 3 weeks, amazing. Thank you. Chris Ray Nielsen
Chris is awesome! Even before I was pre - approved with the bank he was available to show me homes I was interested in, other agents usually won't make time for you if you dont have the preapproval from a lender. He doesn't play games, very honest, and doesn't try to push you into something you don't want to do, like make outrageous offers on homes. Chris is also very available, even while he was on vacation he was able to arrange for his assistant to show homes and still put in offers, in fact the house I just bought, he was out of town when we made the offer and had it accepted.... Melissa Newton
I got in touch with Chris through Realtor.com when me & wife were looking to buy place in Brentwood, CA. His knowledge about the location is quite extensive. Since we are new to this location he always used to suggest good locations to concentrate. He is very thorough in the market knowledge and at times we were putting our offers he is good at giving the market comps & suggesting what is the fair market value of the homes. Though we were very picky and we use to take lot of time in deciding on what home to put our offer into he is never pushy & quite patiently use to show more homes. His real estate knowledge is also terrific - he guided us at all the phases in our home buying process and made it appear like it's very simple process. He is honest and always works for our benefit and in our long home buying process we found out him to be very professional, super responsive at times we had questions & also became good friends also. I can easily say that he is the one you can rely on would definitely recommend him to any of my friends or for any of our future needs. Sam Suda
In order to buy our new dream home, we had to sell our very first home. Chris helped to make both the selling and buying process so much easier than we could have ever expected or hoped for. He is easy going and extremely helpful in every way. We are very blessed to have found him! Erica Morris
We found a house on Zillow and submitted an inquiry, the listing agent was Chris. Although we didn't buy that home, we found Chris to be excess at interpreting our needs. Not only did he find us a great home, he was able to get us the exact home we wanted. Although we thought the home was out of our comfort zone, Chris did some pretty amazing negotiating. Furthermore, Chris turned us onto a program for veterans that made the process much easier. Is recommend Chris ten times over. I wouldn't call anyone else. Larry Deveraux
Could not have found a better realtor ! He was always available to answer our questions, and worked very hard to try to take the stress out of selling a home. He coordinated with our buying agent so we could close and move in one day. Don & Julie Blotz
My husband and I wanted to move to Discovery Bay but not familiar with the area. We found Chris from his Website which disclosed the best pictures and information regarding houses available. We contacted Chris and set up dates to review various homes. We like that Chris is very familiar with the area and knows what a fair price when deciding to make offers. He worked with us to make sure our new home we purchased is exactly what we wanted . If we ever need to sell or purchase another home, we would definitely choose Chris. Vic and Judy McKenzie
“My wife found Chris through his website when we were considering moving from Japan back to the U.S. He met on Sunday afternoon and showed us several properites after getting to know our needs. They don't get any more knowledgeable or experienced than Chris. I'd give him 6 stars outta 5 for his knowledge and work ethic!” Gary & Sharon Carlisle
Chris was is a great person to work with. We were first time home buyers in the market and Chris was really patient with us and gave us the rum down of how the market works. He is Super quick to respond to any listings we had. We were looking for around 3 months until we found our home and not once was Chris "pushy" to close a deal. We felt he was always looking for our best interest and would run comps to see if we could place a lower offer on a house. Most importantly he always respected our price range (which in the beginning changed frequently). We can honestly say we trusted and often confided in his opinion. Sal Villicana
“Chris's knowledge of the community and the resources available were very helpful in our search for our home. He was always responsive and quick to find answers to our questions. He is easy to work with and I highly recommend using his skills and talents in a home search.” Kathy Bohnsack
Chris made our home buying experience very easy. He was always very responsive and kept us informed every step of the way. We have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family looking to buy or sell their homes. Julie Stenwick
I emailed Chris late on a Friday night. He called me back within 1 minute and asked a few questions about the home I was interested in. That home was taken but he found me an even better home for less money. He took care of all the business and worked well with my lender. Everything went smooth and we closed 10 days early! I would highly recommend Chris if you are looking for or plan to sell a home. He is awesome. Robert Serkiz
Chris listened to our needs, he was determined to find us the best house, and he was professional. He always made himself available and was patient during the entire process of viewing properties. We searched for months and he finally found the right home before it even made it to the MLS. Todd Craig
I've recently had the chance to work with Chris Soukoulis as the recipient of proceeds from the sale of a property with many legal issues. Chris put in a great deal of effort and went out of his way learning things new to him and dealing with multiple contacts. He clearly communicated well with all parties and I especially felt very informed on a timely basis with the facts I needed to know. I was able to contact it him at any time by my choice of the many methods we use today. I never felt hesitant about contacting him. My calls were returned very quickly and questions got answered. Chris always followed up to keep things moving forward. Advice was given, but decision making was respectfully mine. I felt my interest were an important matter, and the perspective was always from reality, not fantasy deal making. It was Chris who had the experience, the knowledge of the market, and the energy to get things done that had to be done that played the biggest role in the closing of a successful escrow. I have, and would continue to recommend Chris Soukoulis as the realtor of choice representing Intero Realtors professionally and proudly Randy Barton
We met Chris by chance of a realty search and he has been patient and incredibly helpful thoughout selling my home in Oakley to purchasing a new home in Discovery Bay! He knows the real estate market and kept the process as stress-free as possible! You can tell he enjoys his job and keeps working for his clients even on vacation and holidays! Chris is THE best by far! Wanda Gibbs
Chris is very experienced, professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, available, and patient. He went beyond the extra mile to accommodate our needs, and was instrumental referring an awesome Mortgage Broker who was also a CPA and experienced with self employed clients. One couldn't ask for more in a Real Estate Professional than Chris Soukoulis. Dave and Deb Gatt
