His explanations are too long for my husband during work hours. ~ Yasmin Dordoy, celebration, Florida
    I had spoken to about a dozen brokers including the "local team" identified by my Credit Union where we obtained the loan. All of them seemed to want the quick deal and move on to the next. They really didn't seem to care about our situation. The first time I spoke to Chris, he tactfully educated me and was not in a hurry. He took lots of time answering my questions and understanding our situation. All though Chris had numerous clients that demanded his time, he always gave us the time that we needed and was outstanding with prompt communications even late at night. After we got a tour of the home, we decided to make an offer. We firmly believe that we would not have the house today if it wasn't for Chris working quickly, thoroughly and late at night to prepare a written offer. Thanks to Chris, we were the first written offer received on the day the house went on the market. The Seller's agent even stated that he had cash offers but he received our written offer from Chris first. Our first offer was rejected but since Chris took the time to understand our needs, he knew there was a huge teak dining table in the seller's home that my daughter wanted. Chris was able to get it included in our counter-offer and he kept the deal alive. ~ Mike Tuttle Titusville, Florida
    Chris Godkin is a true pro. We would highly recommend him to anyone. He's super! and I'm not being paid to say so :-) ~ John Emerling, Buffalo, NY

    extremely satisfied, would recommend Chris to friends and relatives. exceptional realtor. Chris is the best. ~ Ed Miller, Davenport, Fl.
    Chris Godkin is the kind of realtor and person whom all realtors should aspire to be like. He understood our needs and respected our budget. Throughout the entire process- from the very first meeting, throughout the entire frustrating and complicated short sale process, up until the closing, he remained patient, organized, and got things done in the most organized and efficient manner constantly keeping all parties involved informed. I cannot imagine this transaction happening without his assistance. ~ Giovanni Riccardi, Celebration, Florida
    Hope we remain friends after the closing. You really are a cool guy and super good at what you do. You go that extra mile every single time. Many many thanks! ~ Yasmin dordoy, celebration, fl
    If you are looking for a Sales Agent who you can trust to be honest, caring and look out for your best interests at all times, I strongly recommend you choose Chris Godkin. ~ Michael Urban - PA and Kissimmee, FL.
    Chris Godkin was very reassuring when we first spoke on the telephone and having a back ground in the UK property market understanding the terminology between the US market and the UK market was a key factor in my choice. I would like to add if there was a box 10 times higher than Excellent it would still not be enough to grade Chris, His attention to detail was amazing throughout the whole transaction, along with his reassuring communications at every stage. I feel strongly Chris also went above and beyond the call of duty in every area. I would strongly recommend Chris to my friends and family if at any time they were buying a property in the US, I would like to say thank you very much for all your help Chris and best wishes for the future.
