"Chris helped my daughter out. He was quick to respond and answer all of her questions. Going forward I will always use him as my Real Estate Agent!"

"Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with.  He was very patient and supportive as we conducted our search for a new home. He always kept in mind what we were looking for and did everything he could to help us reach our goals. Working together, we were fortunate to find a beautiful home that fit all the needs of our family. We are grateful for the assistance that Chris provided and would recommend him highly to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in the Tri State area. "
Peter Juran

" My family and I needed to relocate to the Newburgh area for my job. Chris did a fantastic job in helping us find a home in the right neighborhood that filled so many of our needs and wishes. When it was time for us to relocate again out of the Newburgh area, we didn’t hesitate one second in calling Chris to list our home. Chris and his team put together a superb marketing plan and were able to bring us multiple offers after just 2 days of being on the market. "
Rob Reinders

" Chris Schafer handled the sale of our home in a very professional manner.  He and his entire staff were accessible and friendly at every step of the process.  Chris addressed all of our concerns and made the sale of our home quick and uncomplicated.  We would recommend him without reservation.  "
Candace Cole

" Chris was exceptionally helpful in not only the process of finding and purchasing the home I was looking for but also in helping me locate and acquire the services I needed to remodel my home. He has always made himself available to facilitate anything I requires during the process. I can highly recommend his services. "
Kevin Reimer

"Chris Schafer has represented me as the seller on several recent real estate transactions in the greater Evansville, Indiana market.  Chris is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market in all respects.  He knows what prospective buyers want, whether it's a vacant lot or a home, what type of renovations make sense, and advises me accordingly.  Chris is the consummate professional.  He is trustworthy and is always a pleasure to work with."

" Chris,  We greatly appreciate  all your help finding the perfect home in Chandler for our employee and his two children, we did not realize just how few homes were on the market in that area,  if it wasn't for you he would have never found what he was looking for in his price range.  Thanks to you, they were able to spend their 1st Christmas in their new home. Its the perfect home to raise his children. Many Thanks "
Chris Kimbrough

" We were very pleased with Chris Schafer as our real estate agent, and would highly recommend him to anyone! Our family was relocating out of state and we needed a realtor to help us sell our home. My husband had to move out of state to start his new job, and I was left to handle most of the details and preparations on my own. Chris stepped right in, helping us every step of the way. He helped make the entire process run very smoothly. Chris gave us helpful suggestions on what we needed to do to sell our home quickly, and to maximize our sale price. We sold our home in just a couple weeks. If we wouldn't have been purchasing in our new location, Chris would have been our realtor to buy our new home too!  "
Kerry & Gina Kind

"I recently purchased a home in downtown Newburgh and was extremely pleased with the process thanks to my realtor, Chris Schafer. I would highly recommend Chris for your real estate needs. Buying a home can be daunting with the many aspects and decisions necessary to find the perfect home. Chris is knowledgeable in all areas of real estate and went above and beyond to make sure that all details were taken care of throughout the purchase process. I trust Chris to help me with buying or selling houses in the future"
Rebecca Edwards

" We really appreciated Chris' professionalism and knowledge while selling our home in Evansville.  He was very easy to work with and treated us like family.  It didn't take us long to see that we made the correct choice when we talked to Chris Schafer about being our realtor. Our house sold in a few weeks which was very important since we were moving out of state.  Also, we got a very fair price for our home. Chris is a real pro!
Eric Otto

" Chris Schafer, as a Real Estate Agent in my dealing with him, was a very positive experience. On our first meeting, when he came out to look at my house and toured through, he made a few suggestions on different things that would make the home show better. Some of which I followed some I didn't get a chance to do. He sent out a professional photographer a couple days later and put together a rather professional looking advertisement and in less than a week my home sold and Chris was able to get me the price I was looking for. Chris was a first class agent in all aspects from the start of the listing up until closing, staying in touch every step of the way. I highly recommend Chris as a Realtor and when I am ready to sell or look for a home in the future Chris will be the first person I contact.  "
Jeff Ubelhor

" Chris Schafer was our agent during the recent sale of our home in Newburgh.  We had built the home as our 'dream home' only 4 years prior, but things changed and we needed to relocate.  Obviously, the sale of a home is always a stressful time, but Chris was with us every step of the way from the initial consultation to the final closing.  His knowledge, poise and experience were tremendous assets for us.  He was able to anticipate and completely meet our needs.  We sold our home quicker than I had expected and for a fair price.  Subsequently, he was also able to help us find our new home even more quickly!  We give our highest recommendation for Chris.
Lee H

" When it came time to sell my home, I had relocated to a different state.  Chris was highly recommended from a friend in the local area.  Upon speaking with Chris I decided to work with him as my Real Estate professional.  Chris’s level of integrity and dedication to his profession proved to be a wise decision.  Selling a home from states away can be a daunting task.  However, Chris and his team made this transition operate smoothly.  He coordinated all showings with my tenant, as well lawn care services.  Chris has an “arsenal” of knowledgeable and affordable contractors he has built relationships over the years.  This proved to be valuable tool that gave me a level of comfort from so far away.  Thanks again to Chris and his team.
Matt Hargrave

" Chris was our real estate agent when we re-located to the Evansville area. He has great local knowledge and lots of good contacts that help with the buying process. We found him patient and reliable, quick to respond to our questions and a good negotiator. Add to this his vision for remodeling and improving property value make him a wise choice as a pick for a realtor. Our house purchase in Newburgh has worked out very well. "
Paul C

" Chris helped us buy our home in Newburgh and then helped us sell it a few years later when we relocated out of state. He handled both transactions to my complete satisfaction. Chris did a phenomenal job on the sale of our home. His marketing materials and network were exceptional and led to an offer in less than a week. He then went over board to complete the sale, working out many issues with a "demanding" buyer, to insure we made it through closing. I would certainly use Chris again and recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a home. "
Chuck Byrnes

" We were lucky to meet Chris on our discovery trip prior to our relocation to the area. He surpassed all our expectations as the most professional and knowledgeable real estate agent that we have ever dealt with in any state or country. He went beyond his duties as an agent by really listening to our wishes and concerns and making sure that they were all addressed and resolved.  He took the time to know as much as possible about our entire family prior to meeting us and helped us not only to find the right house for us but to start our new life with doctors names, banks, clubs, markets, restaurants... We can never say enough of how Chris is the most professional, knowledgeable and patient real estate agent; and a caring and genuine good person."
Marilia K

"Chris Schafer, as a real estate professional, takes his clients and their needs very seriously.  Our home sale was handled with attention to detail in a courteous and thorough manner.  Given the opportunity we would work with Chris in the future.
Steve & Kathy Boston

" Chris Schafer did an outstanding job in helping us purchase our new home!  He knows his stuff when it comes to negotiations, recommendations on home inspectors, and the closing process.  He helped us buy our dream home, and we couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. "
Lisa Chaddock

""Recently purchased multiple lots in McCutchanville.  Chris proactively orchestrated the transaction flawlessly.  Communications, process and personal touch was top notch.  His strong reputation is well deserved.""
Steve P

" Chris Schafer's expertise as a real estate professional stems from knowledge he possesses beyond the buying and selling of houses. His peripheral skills add value to any transaction. Because of his background as a financial planner, he views real estate as an investment as well as a home. Additionally, he has great knowledge of home maintenance and repair, and knows things to look for details that a typical buyer might never consider. On top of this, Chris is a man of great character and integrity. I count on him for his counsel in addition to the ability to facilitate a transaction. I would never buy or sell a home without having Chris Schafer as my representative.
Joe Ellsworth

" Chris Schafer was a tremendous help to me. He provided me with information that I needed to make educated decisions. His concerns with making me comfortable meant a lot to me.
He not only was a source of information for the sale of my home, but his knowledge of outside services I needed was an added bonus. I have and will continue to recommend him.

" Chris is a great real estate agent He has a very detailed and efficient approach He was honest and has a wonderful personality I was lucky to work with him "
Dr Ahmed

" Chris sold my home quickly and with such ease it was amazing!  The entire experience was fantastic.  He came out and spent quite a lot of time making recommendations and getting the work that was needed scheduled and completed in a quick time frame.  He was phenomenal at making the sale of my home very stress free.  His guidance and quality customer service made for smooth sailing!  I would use Chris again to sell my home and have recommended him to friends and colleagues.  "
Stacey Hebebrand

" Chris Schafer did a great job of coordinating the sale of our home.  Most importantly, he helped us with so many things that were beyond the sale itself.  He helped facilitate our move to a new home in a number of ways and continues to be available for any questions or help that we require."

" My husband and I have purchased a number of homes, but without a doubt our best and easiest experience was with our realtor, Chris Schafer.  He not only sold the home we were in within ten days, he found the perfect home for us to move into so that we were able to move out of one and directly into the other.  We had a very pleasant and cordial experience with Chris.  Chris is very professional, has the utmost integrity, is a good listener, and quickly learned our needs to find us the perfect home in a very short period of time.  We would, without question, highly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking to buy, or sell, a home!
Dr. Jay and Linda Bigham

" Chris sold our home in 3 months while our street was under major construction. Excellent and professional service. Totally satisfied.
Brian and Deb Monroe

" Chris was very personable and knowledgeable.  He helped us narrow down homes that would fit us from 700 miles away! He made all home showing appointments on the same day due to our limited time, and we found our new home! His knowledge about not just the home buying process but about the area, along with any question you could think of he had or found the answers to. Great job Chris, thank you!  "
Adam Cooper

"My parents recently needed to sell their home and they enlisted Chris as a sellers agent.  Chris did a wonderful job in executing the transaction and ensuring that the deal was closed despite several potential setbacks that were out of the control of both my parents and Chris.  Chris is the utmost in professionalism and truly knows the market and how to get deals done.
Nate Monroe

" Chris Schafer did an excellent job in helping me buy my first home!  Chris made the experience very stress free and always was the go between in dealing with the seller for me.  I very much appreciated and am very grateful for that.  I would highly recommend Chris to help you buy a home or sell a home.  Chris also was very quick in handling anything that came up with the house and recommending his contractors.  For that I am very grateful for.  I very much enjoyed my experience in buying a home and thank Chris and his team for everything that they have done for me in buying my first home.  Thank you for your trust, Chris, and your trust in your contractors.   Chris continues to be there if I have any questions.
Amy Austin

" Chris Schafer has represented us in our transactions in the Evansville and Newburgh areas and done an amazing job. My wife and I have purchased homes both personally and for our rental business with Chris’ help and been very appreciative of his professionalism, dedication, and knowledge of the real estate market. After a sale is complete, Chris doesn’t disappear like other realtors that I’ve done business with, he has continued to act as a resource for us and our business. With Chris we have added another partner to our network and are excited about the value he adds to our decisions regarding property acquisitions. It is without any hesitancy that I can recommend Chris Schafer to assist you with any of your real estate needs.
Kenneth Merten

" Chris was outstanding and patient while looking for and eventually finding the perfect home for our family.  His experience provided a seamless transition as we relocated our family.  I would highly recommend him if you want to find the perfect fit for your family. "
Erick Watkins

"Chris Schafer was referred to us by a colleague of my husband when we were planning to relocate to Evansville.  Not only did he show us Evansville during our first visit we also found our home on that same trip.  He spoke to us over the phone to figure out what we were looking for prior to our arrival and had a sit down with us upon our arrival to fine tune our needs.  We saved money not renting as planned and we bought a brand new home that fit within our budget and lifestyle in a lovely neighborhood.  His no pressure, very attentive and caring personality helped seal the deal.  Chris is extremely resourceful, thoughtful and quick to help.  He made me comfortable and like Evansville right off the bat which is no easy feat for someone with high expectations like me.  With Chris as our agent the relocation process from the East coast to the Midwest has been seamless.  Chris is a one stop shop relocation expert who is very knowledgeable about the area.  I would highly recommend Mr. Schafer to anyone who wants bang for his or her buck when relocating.  Thank you Chris Schafer.
