Testimonials


 

Kim and Chris were an incredible team to work with - from start to finish. They were so involved with the purchase of our new house as well as the sale of our current house. We have had the opportunity to work with them as both buyers and sellers and the process was so smooth and successful on both accounts. They were very involved and helpful especially with the sale of our current house. Their contacts and know-how in this industry is extensive and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Chris and Kim represented me on an extremely quick sale of my home. From guidance on an incredibly fast move out, prep and timely listing, to navigating showings during Covid restrictions, assisting with extensive electronic documentation exchange, through to offer acceptance and escrow close – Team Suarez+Benz were exceptional. 

Chris and Kim were professional, great communicators and so patient and understanding working with me on several issues specific to the sale.

Chris’ vision and creativity on how to stage and market my property, and Kim’s extensive knowledge of the sale process kept my anxiety in check and led to an amazing outcome.  Thank you!

Kim & Chris are simply the best. We would use them over and over again and have and will continue to refer them to friends.

I had known of Chris for years -- he has a reputation as an expert in the community who is able to obtain excellent results. Chris and Kim navigated a sale involving a bitter divorce. They were able to work with both parties, able to prepare the house rapidly, and able to maximize the sales price. 

These two are rock stars. My last experience with an agent in Los Angeles was with Josh Altman. i would prefer working with Chris and Kim any day.

Chris and Kim met our needs professionally and emotionally. Selling our property was the beginning of Glendale Humane'™s journey as a grant writing nonprofit. Chris and Kim were sensitive to our animals at the shelter and the emotional toll selling our building had on our board.

Both Chris and Kim made us feel special and cared for. We could not have been happier.

Chris and Kim are a class act, as well as strategic thinkers. They devised a plan to help us acquire a highly sought after home in a hot market, and they pulled it off beating 6 other offers, and one all cash.

We were so impressed, Chris and Kim are handling our listing on our home to sell as well. And they are also an absolute pleasure to work with.

The house was very unusual and presented problems for selling at its full price-potential. It needed the right preparation, the right marketing, and the right buyer for a successful sale.

Chris and Kim were all over it. There was a lot to do. They were creative, enthusiastic, and fun to work with through the whole thing.

When it came time to deliver, the house sold over asking in 8 days. And by the way, other agents had discouraged us from listing at our asking price.

If I have another house to sell, I'd gladly do it with them.

--Ask Kim or Chris for my cell, and I'll tell you what they're really like. :-)

Chris & Kim are experts in selling homes to the best buyers for the highest price. They are not just Realtors, they were our partners in maximizing the value of our home.

This is our second transaction with The Suarez+Benz Team and we are more than extremely satisfied with the results!

Chris and Kim went above and beyond with selling our house! They gave us great advice on updates that we should make to our home, in order to get more return. Their advice worked so well that we received over 20 offers!! They are both very easy to talk to and they explained everything to us so that we could fully understand all of the processes.

They are extremely professional, and very responsive. We feel like we hit the jack pot finding them and we would refer Suarez + Benz to anyone and everyone we know!

There is not just one thing that made Kim and Chris standouts. They are knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate purchases the SGV, sincerely attentive to your needs, and good tacticians when it comes to closing the deal. I just wish they had been my brokers when I previously looked for and bought homes!

I would recommend the SB team (Chris & Kim) to anyone & everyone. These guys know how to sell a property and will advise on upgrades that buyers are looking for. We brought SB into our property early and they helped us decide on upgrades from flooring to finishes. They have an eye for detail and their marketing campaign is outstanding.

They sold our house within a few weeks for the price we needed.

This particular house had the same owners for 50+ years, it really needed a refresh after years of deferred maintenance. Their Design-Stage-Sell philosophy came through in this project, they really have a tried and true formula for presenting your house a specific way and getting you the most money possible for your home. Their recommendations paid off and then some. We sold the house after some very reasonably priced renovations for top dollar price per sq. ft. It was a massive return on my investment.

They were always timely, enthusiastic, and extremely professional. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and if I ever decide to move they will be my first call.

I am a developer and renovate about 3 homes a year. Kim and chris brought me this opportunity in Adams hill which we were able to improve and add square footage to. What makes the Suarez team unique is their absolute dedication to their work and their vision for the design aspect of a property. This is the reason I am already working with them on several other projects and will continue using them as my brokers on all future home sales and purchases.

They work quickly, don’t make errors and are respectful of the time and energy of others. They communicated with me better than any other realtor has in my entire career, I would have to say that this is their true strong suit. They didn’t miss a single phone call of mine.

Chris Suarez is an amazing Real Estate Broker. I have used Chris in several real estate transactions and every time, without exception, he exceeds my expectations.

As a Buyer's agent, Chris knows the right strategy to get our offer accepted. His pricing strategy and impeccably crafted offer presentations always impress the Seller's agent. His "love letters" to the Seller are legendary, and combined with his charm and excellent rapport with other agents, give us an almost unfair advantage even in multiple offer situations.

As a Seller's agent, Chris uses his unmatched eye for design to prepare and present the home in such a beautiful and appealing manner, that I always get the highest price per square foot. I know from experience, that when I list my home for sale with Chris, I will get top dollar for my home.

The Suarez-Benz Team was incredibly professional.  From A to Z.  We purchased our La Canada dream home that was a true long shot.  Their collaboration as a team sealed the deal.  In all aspects, from offer strategy, to loan officer referral, to close.  They are the reason that Real Estate Agents will forever hold their value.  Thanks again!

Chris and Kim make dreams happen! You will have a hard time finding a team that works harder than these two. We closed escrow on the house we sold on a wednesday and closed escrow on the house we bought the following day! Needless to say we put a lot on the line and took some risks. When we listed our house and made an offer on our new house within days, my wife and I were losing sleep. We would call Chris and Kim late night and they would take our calls every time. Communication was very easy at every step of the process.

Another thing that was great to see was how well they interacted with the other realtors we came across. Very friendly and professional. I will be recommending Suarez-Benz to everyone I know!

Kim Benz and Chris Suarez are the absolute dream team. Whether you need to sell your home or are looking to buy a home, your search for a realtor can stop here--there is no one better than Kim and Chris. Not only did Kim and Chris help us find and get under contract for our dream home, they  jumped into high gear and transformed our previous home into an absolute show stopper. In five days (you read that right), they sourced competitive price quotes for landscaping, painting, and staging, oversaw it all, and had our home on the market. Their magic paid off, when our home sold shortly thereafter and our transition to our dream home because a reality.

Beyond their hard work and attention to detail, Kim and Chris are simply great people who are a pleasure to be around. And to top it all off--their commitment to their craft shines through their unbelievably extensive network of professional contacts and their incomparable care and passion for their clients. I will never buy or sell a home again without Kim and Chris on my team.

Chris is the highest caliber professional and along with Kimberly Benz their team did an outstanding job selling our home in Glendale! With their guidance and coaching to procure all the due diligence reports, properly stage our home and implement a high-tech marketing package and  web platform prior to going to market we were in escrow during the first week and closed escrow on the sale of our home in 21 days.

Extremely important to us was the way they always answered our calls 24/7 and were always immediately there for us. Chris Suarez and Kimberly Benz gets our highest recommendation!

My husband and I loved working with Kim and Chris.  They are incredibly knowledgeable of the market, and as first-time home buyers we needed someone like them to help us navigate this incredibly complicated market.

We not only enjoyed our experience with them as buyers but when it came time to sell our flat we put our trust in them and their team as Sellers and they didn’t let us down! We highly recommend them!

I have bought and sold 6 homes in my life.  Chris was the only realtor who listened to me, took my ideas and incorporated them with his.  He made me feel like part of the team at Suarez Benz. It was a complete win selling my home in Pasadena and downsizing to my new home. 

If anyone who reads this review would like to know more about what Chris has done for my family please contact me and I would love to share all the details. My brother has purchased several homes with Chris as well in Pasadena and most recently in La Canada. Chris and his team were amazing   His execution was mind blowing.
