What Our Clients Say AboutChris Ellis
A 5 Star Realtor Before choosing a real estate agent, Lisa and I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on neighborhood listings and sales and how agents in our neighborhood promoted their listings. Chris Ellis with Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville was a clear choice for us. His social media presence was strong, and it was evident that Chris put a lot of work into his listings. We spoke with Chris and then met with him at our home. He answered our questions, provided us with objective data regarding sales in our area with as well as a detailed market analysis. Chris made the process of marketing/selling our home incredibly easy and took those extra steps regarding staging tips, having professional photographs taken and showing expectations. When we saw our listing photographs we were amazed. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked incredible and knocked out the competition. We received multiple offers within days. Our house went under contract above asking price. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. We would recommend Chris without reservation. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice person. Selling your home is a stressful process, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor than Chris Ellis. A five star Realtor! - Jack and Lisa
Having worked with Chris in the past, we immediately knew who to call when it was time to sell our home in New Kent. It was late March when the pandemic was changing life as we knew it. Chris never wavered and took great care in showing our home to potential clients, always keeping us informed. The professional photos really captured what we loved about our home. To our delight and amazement, Chris sold our home within a week. We are so grateful to have developed such a trusting relationship and highly recommend Chris to others. Thanks Chris! - Teresa W. for Chris Ellis

on Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville I live in the DC area, had just lost my sister and needed to sell her home. Chris was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and showed the utmost sensitivity and care in handling the sale. He led me through the process every step of the way and took care of matters that I couldn't attend to while I was in DC. He advised me all the way on how to stage the home, prepare and finalize the sale. I felt comfortable putting my sister's home in Chris's hands. - Roma S. Brodecki
Chris is smart, knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy! We met Chris at an Open House and knew immediately we wanted to work with him on our house search. He listened to us and really worked to understand what we were looking for. He was responsive and always made himself available to us. Whenever we hit a bump or snag, Chris was quick to research and often could come up with out-of-the-box solutions. He kept us apprised of the status of things yet was never pushy or demanding of us. Chris has many clients who become friends and we can see why. He is smart, knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy; exactly what you want from a friend and a business partner. - S. Vaughn
Highly Organized Chris is highly organized, has relationships with other realtors, is personable and punctual. Takes care of the details! - Christi
As first time home buyers, my husband and I were unsure of the home buying process. From our first meeting with Chris to the final closing, Chris was very patient in explaining every detail. Because of Chris' professionalism, we felt at ease throughout the process. He made himself available to us on a consistent basis. If you want an advocate for your home buying process, Chris is your guy! - Amy Price

After more than 20 years in a home we loved, we needed a knowledgeable real estate partner on our journey to downsize and find something smaller. Chris Ellis not only helped us navigate the process, but he also became a trusted friend who guided us at every step. We wouldn't dream of enlisting anyone else if we ever move again...but he did such a good job of getting us into our new home, we'll probably stay here forever! Chris Ellis had the knowledge, the experience, and the patience we needed most when downsizing from a home we loved. You won't go wrong with his guidance. - Seller & Buyer in Richmond
