Team Testimonies

Read what home buyers and home sellers have to say about working with the dedicated Wellesley REALTORs® at Christine Norcross and Partners, specialists in the Boston Metro West Area.

“Chris Norcross got us an offer on our house the weekend we listed it, at a time of year when real estate typically sits for weeks if not months.  She coached us through the preparation process – how to get the house ready, what comparable houses were listing and selling for, preparing for the move to the new place.  She even let us use her house cleaner to get ready for the showings!  Our house wouldn’t have sold as quickly as it did at the price that it did if it wasn’t for Chris’ thorough prep work and dedication.”

“It was such a pleasure to work with you and your team for the selling of our home — especially during the onset of one of the most challenging real estate markets in recent years — your integrity, resourcefulness, professionalism and can-do attitude made a huge impact in successfully selling our house in a pleasantly surprising 28 days!  Your dedication to marketing, promoting, and staging of our house to the right buyers was one of the major factors we chose to work with your team versus another national agent (who, incidentally, worked with us in the closing of buying our Framingham house 2 years earlier!).  We worked closely with Ms. Helene Urbas during all of the phases — she was responsive, positive, and incredibly knowledgeable in pinpointing exactly what our house had to offer and worked with us during the tough negotiating and closing phase.  Additionally, we appreciated the market & research insights to properly valuing our house so that we could realize a maximum sale amount.  My only regret is that Christine and Helene could not help us with buying our subsequent house in Las Vegas. Thank you for such a great outcome – and a fantastic experience – that I’ll be able to “brag” about for many years to come!”

“Chris Norcross was by far the most thorough and responsive realtor I have ever encountered.  She is intelligent and very well connected.  Not only did she help us reduce the asking price of the house we bought but had connections with local contractors who put in hardwood floors within a week at a very fair price for nice workmanship.  She also helped us find a good lawyer, great inspector, and helpful mortgage broker which ultimately saved us thousands on our closing costs. This going the extra mile meant the world to us as we were unfamiliar with the area. She is a pro through and through and remains a friend to this day.  I look forward to working with her again for our next home now that our family has grown by two.”

–Alexandra E., Relocating Buyer

“Chris Norcross is a truly exceptional person.  As a realtor representing us as buyers, she was tireless, generous with her time, unfailingly cheerful, and reassuring – more a life coach than a salesperson, helping us every step of the way.  Her professional skills are tremendous, but what makes her unique is her gift for friendship, for bringing people together and enhancing their lives.  Chris is the most sincere, straightforward person I know, and I can’t find the words to say how much I would recommend her to any seller or buyer.  I only wish she sold something besides homes so I could buy from her more often!”

–Bill E, 1st time Home Buyer

“I have never had a real estate agent work as hard for me as Chris Norcross did.  She is a gem!”

–Mark H., Landlord Weston MA

"David and I want to thank you and all of your team members for your efforts from start to finish in the sale of our home.  Our early confidence in you and your team was continuously confirmed as you educated us and lead us through the sequential stages of selling our home.

We were very happy to receive your commitment of time and interest to get to know us well at the outset so that your plans could be developed with our full understanding.  We appreciated the frequency of your communication with us throughout the process and felt that we knew what was happening throughout. And it meant so very much to have you there in person for the many necessary appointments. That was the best and we do thank you so very much."

“My wife and I purchased our first home in November 2006 and worked closely with Chris Norcross. She was extremely helpful during our search. Like most first time home buyers our requirements were high, but our budget pretty small, especially for the Boston area. Chris showed us a dozen properties in a short time-frame that met most if not all of our needs: New England Charm, a fireplace, a nice backyard, and of course a garage. We appreciated Chris´s advice, but most of all her brutal honesty.

“Chris always provided an experienced insight on the homes that we visited. Once we decided to make an offer on a home, she helped us alleviate some of the stress and was instrumental in getting a good deal. We not only got money back on closing day (the seller paid for closing costs), but Chris negotiated many repairs at the seller´s expense that we probably would not have dared to ask for.

“We highly recommend Chris to other buyers and are still in touch with her today.”

–Jean-Patrick Le Bihan, Newton - (Buyer)

“Christine and Helene were fantastic to work with and I would not hesitate to refer them and/or work with them again.”

–Christopher and Amy Hggins - (Seller)
