Alex made sure all of our wish list items and must haves were available to us. He was on time with every little thing, explained everything very clearly and his team went above and beyond to make sure I was buying the best house.
Ryan is an expert in all areas. His kindness and professionalism is unparalleled. Ryan is hands-on and manages all aspects of Real Estate effortlessly. He is an amazing photographer and marketed our home beautifully. His knowledge of buying and selling a home was mind-blowing. He was always able to address our questions with ease. He always made sure we were happy and aware of our options. We are extremely happy with our experience and look forward to working with Ryan in the future. Thanks so much Ryan. We couldn’t have done it without you! - Jessica T, Antioch CA
Chris Ristau invested a lot of time really listening to our expectations throughout the sales process. He kept us informed each step of the process and offered his professional opinion in a clear and concise manner. Allowing us to be confident throughout the decision making process and supporting our needs throughout the sale.
I’ve worked with professional people before; Chris is more than. He is personal as well.
That to me, made all the difference. One80 Realty did not sell my house. Chris Ristau did! - Rufino Quicho, Antioch CA
Ryan was such a pleasure to work with! He showed us property until we found the perfect one! He helped coach us every step of the way, easing our minds as we walked through the purchase of our first home. I would highly recommend Ryan and his team! Thanks One80! - Amy Stang, Brentwood CA
Getting an excellent buyer’s agent in the Bay Area seller’s market is important and Alex Huezo is an excellent buyer’s agent. - MG, San Mateo CA
Chris was the first broker in a year of searching that had a can do attitude and was truly seeking to partner with a client in the process.
As a 15 year veteran of the relocation world I have dealt with 100s of agents. Chris is truly top tier, exceptional. - Kerri & Scott, Oakley CA
- Chris & Christina Porter, Tracy CA
Chris Ristau did a wonderful job in helping us purchase our second home. He listened to what we were looking for in a home and showed us a bunch of houses. In the end we found the house that was right for us and we couldn’t be happier. The home we purchased needed a little work and Chris helped us find the right guys to do the work. He really goes the extra mile for his clients which makes him great at his job. I would definitely contact him for any of my real estate or broker needs, as well as recommend him to family or friends.
Michael is a hardworking, enthusiastic, and trusted advisor as well as a realtor/broker/ anything else you may need. As a knowit-all myself, I not once questioned his opinions or direction- he was poised in all of our interactions and he seemed to be honest and upfront. I enjoyed working with him and getting to know him and hopefully utilizing his services again. - Amanda Joseph, Pacheco CA
I have to admit, I was hesitant on trusting Michael Gordon with the sale of our home initially. Well, I can definitely say he did not disappoint me. I didn’t want to have our house staged or spend any extra on advertising but he highly recommended it and my husband was on board and convinced me that Michael knew what he was doing. I’m so glad that we did! The staging made our home look amazing! The company that he uses was able to tie in the perfect designs to compliment the colors,features and spaces of our home. The 3D tour of our home made it so easy for buyers to really see our home from ceiling to floor without even having to be there…amazing!
We had a slight set back with the exchange of our solar panel contract but Michael Gordon kept us abreast of the situation as he was in contact with escrow as well as the solar company. He suggested that we also continue to call Sun Run to make them aware that we were waiting for them to do their part before we could turn the house over to the new buyers. Using team work we handled the situation within 24 hours!
Michael was so easy to work with. He kept lines of communication open day or night. He is a great listener and he does his best to fulfill his clients wants and needs. I can’t say enough good things about him! He is one of the best realators around and for good reason. He goes above and beyond for his clients. - Christina Matejcek, Discovery Bay CA
- Alexandra Kirby, Oakley CA
He was great and we consider him a friend for a life time and was awesome with our boys as well and he still helps us with question even after we have moved in and there would be no reason for anything right now but I sill find myslef calling him when I still have a question about a home problem.
Update: It's almost been four months to the day since we closed on our home...
- Patrick & Frances, Concord CA
Here's our final review of our experience with Michael and Haley.
We first met Michael and Haley at an open house where we were so impressed by their warmth, knowledge and professionalism, that we knew we had to work with them. As first time home-buyers, we had a lot of questions and didn't know where to start. Michael and Haley were so patient and took to time to provide us with invaluable education so that we would feel confident in navigating the home buying journey from start to finish. Even with our crazy irregular work schedules, they made themselves available to answer our many questions, concerns, and requests via phone and text.
Michael and Haley worked seamlessly as a team to ensure that we had all the information available for our list of prospective homes so that we could make informed decisions. The duo was so detail oriented and responsive, that we felt like we were in good hands. We never felt pressured to make a decision and they genuinely wanted us to find the home that we would love and not settle for anything less. Looking back, we could not have imagined going through the incredibly stressful process of buying our first home without the expertise and authenticity of Michael and Haley.
To our surprise, we were able to close on our new home in just over a month and with our first attempt at making an offer. If that isn't a testament of their expertise, I don't know what is. But even more amazing, is that Michael and Haley both continue to check-in with us after we received the keys - to see how we are doing and to ensure we are taken care of because there's so much to home ownership beyond walking through the door. We are so thankful to have found Michael and Haley with One80 Realty and can't recommend them enough! Thank you for making our first home buying experience a positive and memorable one!
- Jane, Fremont CA
Chris was a complete pleasure to work with. He listen to our needs and helped us get the best price for our home. He was on top of his game at all times.I would recommend him for any type of home buying or selling. He's a shark with a great smile
- Patrick D., Oakley CA
I can't say enough about Alex. I wanted to buy, but I was preparing for the typical issues with the home buying process. He made it extremely easy and actually fun. I enjoyed my time with him as we looked and then decided. The next thing I knew, I owned the house I really wanted. It was about that simple. Highly recommended Alex!
- Belinda McLean, Oakley CA
I would refer Chris to all my family and friends. He is truly the best at what he does and for that we appreciate him.
Thanks again, Chris.
Michael was awesome with his staff. I am a huge believer in doing what you say and he got that exact statement. It was wonderful. We are on another star and we where a great team. The numbers reflect what on80 is about. Thanks Michael from the matejceka - Matt Matejcek, Arizona
Where do I begin.....Chris was available 24/7 if we had concerns or questions. He was very professional yet made us feel like family. There was never a time that I could say, he was not there for us. He went over and beyond our expectations. He handled our loan process every step of the way and we appreciate all that he has done. - Mr. & Mrs. McLean, Oakley CA
If I could add "over exceeded", I would have checked off all of those boxes.
Just want to say "THANK YOU" for helping us reach our Goal, Chris. Your the BEST!
Ryan and the people he works with are great. They were so helpful. I used a different agent to buy a new home since I was moving to another state. The other agent was with 21st Century and he wasn't close to half as good as Ryan. I called Ryan when I had questions on the purchase of the new home and the other agent couldn't answer. Ryan was very helpful and is knowledgable. - Sam S., Livermore CA
What can I say about Ryan Evanson from One80 Realty...First and foremost Ryan Evanson is my brother, but beyond that, he is our realtor who made buying a house an enjoyable and painless process. From the beginning Ryan sat down with our family to determine a game plan, ensuring we're on the same page with finances, budget, wants/needs and everything in between. Once a plan was in place the hunting began. It didn't take long to find the house that fit our criteria and as they say, the rest is history. Throughout the escrow stage, Ryan Evanson was a true professional and extremely knowledgeable when it came to any concerns, questions or hesitations we had during the inspection period. Now I may be a little bias when it comes to Ryan, but he’s a true professional, trusted by all his clients, and the reason this buying process was so painless. If you’re looking for a broker/realtor you can trust, give Ryan Evanson and the team at One80 Realty a call today! - Steve Evanson
Ryan has helped me buy , sell and buy again. Everytime has been a great experience.
I will be calling Ryan for all my real estate needs, that's how great he is. If you are looking for a real state broker call Ryan and you will know you are in great hands. - Mario Loera
Chris Ristau is the best Realtor agent we could have asked for. He made home buying process less stressful by being with us step by step. Chris answered any and every question we had, and I could call him anytime I wanted. I would use Chris and his company over and over. I will recommend him to all my friends and family. It was a pleasure doing business with such caring people. We were treated with respect at all times. Appreciate everything you did for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Monica Shariff Patterson, Tracy CA
- Tamara Hernandez, Brentwood CA
We would not have been able to do this without Chris! He helped us to fulfill our dream.
We couldn’t be happier with the experience provided by Ryan and his team. From day one we were given week by week instructions on what to expect and what was expected by us. We could get into contact with someone at any time or day. We needed to have our house sold fast and it was! I know it was because of the incredible photos and special touches, like the incredible virtual tour on our website, that put our home above the rest. We even took our time choosing a buyer and still sold in only 3 days! Ryan was always in our corner, ready to fight whatever demand came our way. He was fair, level headed and answered all of the MANY questions we had. He and his team far exceed our expectations. - Brianna Andrews, Pittsburg CA
Thank You Michael Gordon and the entire One80realty team! - Steven Doden, Martinez, CA
You've heard the saying, "under promise and over deliver", but with Michael you get "over promise and over deliver". In our first meeting he was so confident in his ability to sell our home for more than any home has sold in our neighborhood. I should have been skeptical, but I've worked with him in the past and had absolute confidence in his ability. Not everything went according to plan initially, but in the end we got everything we wanted, he even found some time to get married in Tahiti! He works incredibly hard, is always available, a great communicator, knows all the ins and outs of real estate transactions and lending, showcased and marketed our home beautifully and negotiated deals with tenacity. Definitely someone you want on your side when buying or selling real estate. I almost forgot to mention the amazing team he works with at One80realty! Special thanks to Haley, Ally, and Nick for all your hard work!
When I first met Ryan Evanson he impressed me as a knowledgeable and experienced professional who is committed to his work. When I recently made the decision to sell my home I didn’t consider anyone else. Having personal knowledge of his previous performance with three other real estate sales he was my first and only choice to represent me. Ryan did an outstanding job with the marketing plan, photos, postings, open house and quickly had my home in escrow and sold. I am very pleased with the entire process and with Ryan. The outcome exceed my expectations. Mission has been accomplished.
I highly recommend Ryan and his office as I plan to purchase a replacement home in the future with Ryan representing me. He coordinates the details extremely well, he is credible,patience and follows through just as planned. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome Ryan achieved. for me. - Chris Gallagher, Pittsburg CA
This is the second house Ryan has helped me sell in the last year. His approach for marketing I believe is what truly stands out. The attention to details, far pricing and marketing stragies have helped get both houses sold quickly and honestly very easily at least on my part. Ryan has handled every aspect professionally and made each experience rather pleasant. With both of my houses now sold I will definitely have Ryan help my family and I when it’s time for our next purchase. - Terriane, Oakley CA
I had a unique transaction as I was a renter who was purchasing the condo I had been renting for the past several years. Ryan did a great job making everything go smoothly and was always available if I found myself having any questions. Ryan worked well with my mortgage broker and I could rely on him to help me understand the sometimes complicated process of making such a large purchase. - Amber Wisgerhof, San Ramon CA
Alex Huezo from One80 was absolutely fantastic in every regard. He was quick to respond to questions and was able to clearly explain what was going on and what the next step was going to be. During the search for a house he was extremely flexible in working around my and my wife’s odd schedules, going out of his way to make himself available when we needed him. Overall he was excellent, attentive and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend both Alex and One80 to anyone looking for a house in the East Bay. - Ryan Everton, Antioch CA
- Doris M., Pittsburg CA
Chris is fast in answering questions, he is very knowledgeable in the real estate world. Chris is on top of things!!
Chris Ristau was awesome, he explained every step and touched basis with me very day no matter how small the detail. - Angel Long, Antioch CA
My husband and I just bought our very first house this past April. Months before we stared the buying process, we met with Ryan Evanson to discuss our wants and needs. We were intimidated, but Ryan listened, answered all of our questions and concerns, and gave us advice on how to put ourselves in a better situation financially. He guided us on ways to better our credit score, and we discussed our financial goals. It was so easy because we were able to get all of our real estate and loan questions answered all in the same office!
As we started the house hunting process Ryan made it as stress free as possible. After inquiring about a house (the one we ended up buying) Ryan went out to the house, did a virtual-tour and sent us the link that very day! We knew it was the perfect home for us right away and put an offer on it. My husband and I felt confident and at ease through the entire process, knowing that we were in good hands.
Ryan is a real estate genius! He is extremely knowledgeable about the buying market, and made the home buying process fun and easy. Ryan is attentive, easy to work with, communicative, and guided us through each step of the process. We couldn’t be happier with the purchase of our home and couldn’t have done it without Ryan Evanson at One80 Realty! - Michelle Evanson, Oakley CA
- Sandy T., Martinez CA
It has been a real pleasure working with Haley (real estate agent) and Michael (loan officer) at One80. I normally do not write lengthy reviews, but I feel the need for it this time. Haley and Michael are friendly, sincere and with me every step of the way. I am a first time homebuyer, so everything was new to me. It was stressful at times but Haley has made it much smoother. I love how she is easy to reach via email, phone or text. With my erratic work schedule, it can be tough but we made it work. It took us a while to find our dream home, since my boyfriend and I have very different tastes. But Haley was very patient and made note of what our individual preferences were in regards to a home. She is attentive to detail and always made sure I was aware of the latest update. I didn't feel like we were pressured into finding a home. We took our time and when it happened, Haley was all over it and made it happen. It wasn't just the homebuying process. Haley helped or gave me advice for the best quotes, whether it was homeowner's insurance or handyman services. I truly felt like I mattered and was taken care of.
Thank you Haley for everything!!
- Daniel Morgan, Oakley CA
I would recommend haley for many reasons but mostly her willingness to help and availability this helped the process alot
- Chris Pimentel, Oakley CA
Chris is a true professional that has integrity and did a great job keeping us informed. For me it was important that Chris kept us up to date with anything needed or any changes. I was really impressed that he never tried to pursuade us in any one direction but instead kept us in the loop of all different options and possibilities. He made the process easy and smooth but also made sure he had everything ahead of time so there were no hiccups.
Thank you Chris for helping us make the right decision and working so diligently to process everything so quickly.
- Nicole A, San Lorenzo CA
Chris Ristau worked really hard to make the home purchase happen. Even though I didn’t have 20% down, he worked his magic to make great progress.He’s very communicative and honest. Chris is super easy to work with and he explains everything he does step by step. I would recommend Chris anyone who wants to buy or sell a home. If you’re going to go through the process, you might as well make it as painless and clear cut as possible! It’s very benefical to have the same organization provide the loan and real estate services in this crazy Bay Area market.
Buying a house has to be one of the most intimidating transactions ever. Chris Ristau made this process very easy. He explained everything so well, he made us feel comfortable every step of the way! We are very happy with the work that Chris has done and he has become not only our broker for life, but also a great friend forever. I look forward buying my second home and using Chris as my broker. - Jonathan Mendoza, Napa CA
We would have never had been able to land the home that we did if it had not been for the great work by Ryan. He knew how much we wanted this home and as soon as we saw it in person, he was on the phone making calls. We were in contract that next day! For us to buy our home we had to sell as soon as possible and 180 Realty did! Our house was on the market and sold in two weeks. Then after our new loan was denied from a late payment 2 days before closing, he and his team worked tirelessly to get a new lender at a good APR! So many obstacles were thrown at us that was beyond our control but we never saw Ryan sweat! They were all awesome and will definitely call on them again if we decide to purchase any other real estate! - Brianna Andrews, Pittsburg CA
Choosing Michael was easy. He is the most professional, courteous and honest person we have ever worked with when buying a new home.
Michael was so understanding as to the process that nothing was missed. Every detail was communicated and completed on time or before, which provided an amazing comfort in a stressful time. Michael is so amazing, there aren’t enough positive adjectives to describe him. He is always makes time to communicate at any time of the day or night.
Whether it is Haley, Ryan or Ally, the support from the staff at 180 Realty really went above and beyond to help us through buying our home. - Oliver Thomas, Clayton CA
- Chris Hamblin, Brentwood CA
I went to One80 with a goal in mind. I had a goal to buy a house before i turned 26. I had about a 3 month window. Ally Gibbs and One80 took that goal serious! Ally took the time and effort to help me achieve that goal. she asked the right questions to make sure she knew what type of house i was looking for. Ally made me feel like i was a priority. she took the time to not only go to houses with me but she also went looking on her own. i really appreciated that because i work a lot of hours in a week and don't have a lot of spare time. I would get notifications when new houses that were in my price point went on sale. because of Ally and ONE80 i was able to reach my goal and buy a house before my birthday. I appreciate the professionalism that ally showed. i would highly recommend Ally and One80 to any of my friends or family. I know I'm not just a number with them. They really make you feel important.
A true professional that knows the home selling and buying process. Takes all factors into consideration (buyer demographic, buyer wants/needs, home comps in the area). Great marketing plan and approach, as well as selling execution. He tells you the entire process from start to finish and it moves smoothly. He's communicative through out the entire process and accessible should you have questions.
He's a one stop shop from selling to buying and obtaining home loans which is convenient. I truly recommend Nick Solis and One80 Realty for all your home selling purchase needs.. - Jason Rante, Livermore CA
Michael worked with me and my wife for 2+ years to find the perfect home. It wasn’t his fault that it took so long. My wife and I refused to settle until we found the perfect home. Before Michael we had been with another agent for 1 year and you could tell our old agent was getting frustrated. Michael was patient and helpful every step of the way. He is extremely knowledgeable at what he does and knows how to negotiate a sale. When we got into contract the home was being sold “as is”. Right before we closed Michael was able to negotiate a $6,000 credit at closing as well as around $2,000 in other closing related cost paid by the seller. Thank you Michael!! - Mark & Rachel Daley, Martinez CA
I was referred to Chris after extensive shopping for a loan for a re-finance of my home. I am glad that I went through Chris and his brokerage firm. He was able to compete with all other loan agents, was extremely friendly, and made my whole experience comfortable. This is my third time working with a professional regarding home loans and I can assure you Chris is a great professional. Home purchase, re-finances, and most loan related changes can be difficult and time consuming if the wrong person is hired to assist, Chris was phenomenal with his services, I felt like very little time was dedicated to this process, the documents were very well explained, and most importantly Chris was very patient with me. Thank you Chris and I will be back in the future for more business. - Daniel U., East Bay SF
- Stacy McDonald, Antioch CA
Chris Ristau is awesome. He did everything he could to get to know us, get to know our needs, and find us the house we were looking for. When we entered the housing market we were looking for a house because we have a baby on the way and did not have enough space to accommodate our growing family at our old house. Needless to say we had a strict time limit on how soon we had to find something. I would vent to Chris about how nervous I was about buying a house at top dollar. He would always listen to me and educate me on the housing market. We made a few offers on houses and we were always front runners because of Chris’ advice. He gave us the best advice possible to be competitive enough to get the houses we were bidding on. When I didn’t listen to his advice- we didn’t get the house. When we didn’t get the house he handled it professionally with optimism. On our last trip out with Chris we went to see five houses and liked all of them. When we went to the last house, it was the one! Chris asked me if this was the one, and I said yes I love the house. He got excited and said “ok I’m gonna go get you this house!” He gave us great advice and we did exactly what he suggested. When all was said and done he got us our house as promised and it ended up appraising for $20,000 over what we paid for it! If that wasn’t enough he continued to go above and beyond after it was a done deal. The sellers left some stuff behind and Chris hauled it away for us. He also offered to be here to get a quote for our garage door. Chris has been much more than a salesperson. We couldn’t be more grateful! We will definitely be referring people to go to Chris and One80 Realty in the future!
We had a situation where we were coming from Southern California and knew nothing of the area. Alex A. Huezo was the perfect realtor for us he knew the area and was happy to not just sell us a home but help us get to know the area and make us feel comfortable. Being unsure on where we wanted to move Alex went the extra mile in showing us several homes in several cities. He showed great Patience when we weren’t sure what house to buy and walked us thru the process with great professionalism and care.
I would highly recommend Alex A. Huezo to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home. Thanks Alex for a great experience. - Karlee & Brian Dash, Lathrop CA
- Jazmin Hernandez, Bay Point CA
From the very start Ryan was an absolute joy to work with. We are first time homebuyers and didn’t know where to begin. We met Ryan after inquiring about a particular house. Unfortunately that house was already off the market, but luckily we were able to meet a broker who worked diligently with us to help us find our first home. Ryan is patient, kind and very knowledgeable; whenever we had a question he walked us through every detail and put our worries at ease. From the first day we met to the final closing date, Ryan made us feel like he was on our team and, as a first-time home buyer, that is what made this experience so much more enjoyable and exciting! We hope to work with him and the fantastic one180 realty team in the future as we continue to grow!
Chris knows the business well, he's on top of his game and he goes above and beyond the call of duty. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. - Nicole westerman, Oakley CA
During the whole process of selling my home I always felt I had the best guy for the job. Ryan came through for me a few years ago when buying my home and he has come through yet again in selling it. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Mario Loera
We would highly recommend Michael for anyone new to the home buying process. He was kind and informative and really helped us navigate the process. Michael was always there to answer our questions and was accessible by text which was helpful for us during busy work days. We also really appreciated his commitment to our needs and helping us figure out the best possible solutions to some of our unique challenges. This can be a scary and stressful process and it helped so much to feel like you had someone on your side to answer tough questions. - Lindy Lavender, Pacheco CA
- Vince Mabutas, Antioch CA
I could not be anymore satisfied with Chris’ work. Purchasing my first home was one of the most stressful things I have ever encountered, yet Chris was very helpful, understanding and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. There was a time when I thought this would not be possible but Chris helped me find the perfect home at the perfect time for my family. I will definitely be recommending him to all of my friends looking to purchase!
Ally Gibbs is a true professional. Listening to our needs and wants Ally was able to find us something we bought on our first round of open houses. Thank you Ally! I will definitely recommend you to my family and friends! - Francisco Miranda, Livermore CA
I think Ryan is a great agent and most, gives his all to making it an easy and stress free experience. - Laraine Mastrella, Mountain House CA
Nick Solis is amazing at what he does. Not only does he love his job he really cares about his clients. The property he found was was the one! He got our offer in before the house was even available after the previous buyers backed out. Nick is very professional and I highly recommend him. - Cassi A., Brentwood CA
Ryan Evanson and the One80 team were fantastic in helping us buy our first and hopefully last home :) Thanks to Ryan, we were able to see our home right away! This was critical because it was not on the market very long. After seeing our dream home, we were able to submit an offer very quickly with Ryan's help. Anything that we needed help or advice on, Ryan was there to answer our questions with a smile. His expertise in the real estate field is second to none! I honestly don't think we would be in our house today if it wasn't for Ryan and the One80 team! - Ken and Paige Evanson, Pittsburg CA
Michael helped us sell our home in June 2017. What an amazing experience!! We were deciding between doing a private sale or going public. His persuasion and knowledge led us to market the house. We are so glad we did. We sold way over asking price and more.
- Bryen Zimmerman, Brentwood CA
He has a successful formula and it works. His team is awesome and his knowledge and customer service is unbeatable. Highly recommend.
We've know Chris for a long time, so going with someone we knew was important to us.
This was a reverse mortgage and Chris was very informative with all transaction taking place. When we were unable to go to him, he came to us.
Chris was very professional. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent. - Marilyn, Newark
- Chet Adams, Hayward CA
My experience with one 80 really T has been a wonderful experience. My agent/broker they dealt with was professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful at every aspect of purchasing my home. I wish more agents could be like Chris. So if you're looking for someone to really be in your corner think Chris at One 80 reality would be the person you want to talk to.
Having worked with Michael Gordon in the past, we felt 100% confident in choosing him to help us with the sale of our house in Oakley.
Everything was excellent and exceeded our expectations. The marketing of our house was amazing, whether it was the printed brochures, online marketing, 3d imaging or drone fly overs.
Michael ALWAYS makes him self available to speak with us and provided a calming influence during a stressful event. He knew the market in our area and predicted the sales cycle perfectly.
Whether it was Haley, Ryan or Ally, we have always been taken care of like family. Everyone was professional, willing to help and go above and beyond our expectations.
We could not be happier with our choice to have 180 Realty and Michael Gordon help us with the sale of our home. They are the most friendly, knowledgeable, professional team we could have ever hoped for! - Oliver Thomas, Oakley CA
Job well done, Alex!!! Keep it up for the clients and…..you…. - Lamberto Agustin, Hercules CA
I thought Ryan Evanson was great. He was very pleasant, flexible, respectful, and easy to work with. He gave the right amount of information- extremely knowledgeable without being overbearing. He negotiated well for me at the closing and had some good suggestions on my loan choice. I would highly recommend Ryan. - Joy, Pittsburg CA
Chris is one of the friendliest professionals I have ever met. He will take great care of you and your family. - Rudy Di Emidio, Suisun City, CA
If you are looking for a broker, Chris Ristau is your guy. He’s a family man that knows his stuff. Chris helped us when we purchased our first home 2 years ago and he helped us sell it now that our family has grown too big for that home.
Not only did he make the selling process easy but he helped us get 80k over list price!! He does an amazing job of understanding and getting to know our family and our schedules. At this time we have a 2 year old and a child due next month and i work nights and my husband works days. Chris makes sure to schedule meetings around our sleep schedules and gives us enough notice to make things happen.
One thing we love about Chris is that he is very easy to talk to and makes himself fully available to us at any time through text, email, and phone. Back when we purchased our first home we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into but Chris made confusing paperwork easy for us to understand by going over every page with us and never asking us to sign something we didn’t understand.
We recommended Chris Ristau to my sister when she purchased her first home and she has nothing but positive things to say about him as well. We look forward to working with Chris in purchasing our second home for a great price. - Christina Porter, Hayward CA
He has great knowledge of the entire process. We were first time buyers and his knowledge was critical to us. - The Farias', Hayward CA
We have used Ryan to help us buy and sell our homes for years and he always does a great job for us. He stays current with all the real estate trends, has cutting edge marketing and always has exceeded our expectations with service and results. Everything he and his team at One80 does is well thought out, every detail covered and the execution of the PLAN is the critical piece that we’re convinced makes all the difference. We would recommend using Ryan and his team for all of your real estate needs! - Jessica Tillery, Antioch CA
- Nishant Patel, Fremont CA
Chris Ristau is a great agent and above all great human being to work with as he very hard working, dedicated professional and his expertise on both selling/buying and lending/mortgage is unmeasurable. Not just Chris but everyone at One80 is real pleasure to work with. Their marketing and use of 3D virtual tour makes it real convenient for buyers to get a very good feel for the home before even stepping in to it. Thank you Chris Ristau and One80 Realty for all their hard work and getting our home sold for record price!
Before you get into my review, please know no one is paying me for this review and I am not afraid to call out flaws or issues, because no one is perfect. - Kevin T, Manteca CA
I have dealt with a range of agents over the years and Chris Ristau stands out from the other agents. I valued his knowledge with both real estate and financing, but also his willingness to research things. No one knows everything, but people who can do research will usually find the answers, but many agents do want to put in the effort. I was not a big spender, but I believe I got the same level of service a million dollar buyer would have gotten.
Chris Ristau was good at dealing with not only myself and my wife, but my parents since they were helping with the down money, they had input on choice of homes. I know in sales, too many decision makers makes things messy. On top of that, I ended up having to buy under a tight timeline. Due to the time pressure, I ended up looking all over the place and Chris rolled with it.
We had a few failed bids and one failed escrow due to the home owner hiding 30-50 grand in foundation issues. I think we viewed thirty homes. These are things that can drive agents nuts. Chris kept his professionalism and always presented options in a logical matter. Never felt like he was pushing us to just buy anything so he could collect his commission. Instead, I felt like I had someone working to get the best option possible. It was a sellers market, which usually the buying agent works harder. There is no doubt Chris carried the work load getting us through escrow.
As far as a real estate agent and loan agent, I think Chris Ristau is an excellent choice for anyone.
