I do not have enough superlatives

I do not have enough superlatives to describe our experience. Christopher was cool, calm and collected when I was not, particularly during a challenging inspection issue. His communication was exceptional. He priced our home perfectly and we received multiple offers in less than 2 weeks and sold for the highest price in our condo building in 5 years! Use him!!!

marketed and brought our home to contract within a week from our first Open House

Christopher Couzens recently marketed and brought our home to contract within a week from our first Open House. He was top notch in his professionalism and marketing skills, and he guided us from the beginning of our sale to the very end. He answered his phone anytime we had a question, and he would always have an answer for us. We felt valued and respected as clients. The detail that he put into marketing and helping us achieve selling our home was impeccable. We would recommend Christopher to anyone interested in buying or selling a home, and we will definitely be referring all of our family and friends to him for any future purchases or sales.

After four years of renting our house in Wilton Manors we decided to sell it.

I highly recommend Christopher Couzens as a realtor. After four years of renting our house in Wilton Manors we decided to sell it. The house was in need of a great deal of work. However, Chris marketed it and we placed it on the market. Unfortunately, we could not receive an acceptable offer. Instead of giving up, Christopher Couzens offered to help me hire contractors to make necessary repairs. As a New York resident, I could not have achieved this without someone to manage this project. Christopher Couzens received estimates, helped me decide on a plan of action and kept me updated on the progress. He would call and Facetime to keep me informed throughout the process. The improvement project was completed within three weeks and we hired several contractors to complete each facet of the job. Within two weeks, we were in contract. I recommend Christopher Couzens to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in South Florida. He is honest, efficient, and has excellent follow up. Though my home sale was difficult due to the condition of the property and the fact that I did not live locally, he helped me sell the home quickly with his guidance and perseverance. Again, if you are buying or selling in South Florida, Christopher Couzens is the realtor that can get the job done. I cannot say enough positive things about him.

We highly recommend Christopher

We highly recommend Christopher. He got our house under contract within a week from listing. As we are from Sweden, Europe and first time sellers in FL, we were not familiar with the selling process in US, but Christopher guided us from start to closing. He is a very good communicator and helped us understand the selling process and keept us updated daily. He set out a time line and made it easy for us to sign the required documents online, from abroad. Christopher is more than a realtor agent, he is an excellent project manager, team leader and coach for an inexperienced buyer / seller. Again: Christopher is super professional! Till alla skandinaver som vill köpa hus i Fort Lauderdale rekommenderar jag starkt Christopher. Han hjälper dig. Vi är så nöjda.

I felt so lucky to have found a realtor like Christopher

I felt so lucky to have found a realtor like Christopher, not only is he charming and witty, he knows his business inside and Out, which made the sale of my house go very smoothly. I enjoyed working with him so much, that I recently bought another house that he found for me. It’s not too often that you meet someone so honest and with so much integrity. He is the only realtor , that I plan on working with in the future.

— Lora Harchevich, Seller & Buyer

I would highly recommend Christopher.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, I would highly recommend Christopher. We have used him in the purchase of 3 homes and most recently in the sale of our own home. Christopher's knowledge and integrity is second to none and he worked tirelessly to be sure our interests were kept safe and that the entire process went as smooth and seamless as possible. I know it may be tempting to try and sell your home yourself and save on the commission fees, but trust me it is not a good idea. Other agents may not be incentivized to show your home, you are not an expert and probably not available every time someone wants to view your home, you don't have the network to bring the largest pool of potential buyers to your home and most likely won't be able to keep emotions out of the game. Selling your home is challenging and I know for us, having a professional like Christopher who had our best interests at heart, was definitely the way to go.

— Cheryl Doan, Seller

We would recommend him to any of our friends and family without hesitation.

— Dave, Owner

Chris is a totally reliable and motivated partner

Chris is a totally reliable and motivated partner when it comes, like in my case, to selling a house in the luxury segment in F.L. while having ones base of living abroad, in my case Germany. Once we signed our agreement, Chris went out of his way to due diligence aspects of the house, found some (unknown) significant problems and was instrumental in getting them resolved. Top marks throughout.

— Flori, Seller

Christopher is a great partner

Christopher is a great partner, a consummate professional and excels at hand holding while leading the process from first meeting to a smooth closing. Not only is Christopher easy to work, motivated and detail oriented, he always goes the extra mile!

Has gone more smoothly and pleasantly than any other

Out of all the real estate transactions I've been involved in throughout my life, this has gone more smoothly and pleasantly than any other. Christopher is thorough, honest, helpful, friendly, available, and objective. He was working for both the sellers and the buyers, and maintained balance and integrity throughout the process. He also introduced us to the person he generally uses as a finance person. He also turned about to be terrific. Christopher was so dedicated to our transaction and to us that he remained available and active even when he had to be overseas for a brief time. I can't recommend him highly enough!

— Dr. F., Buyer

Christopher Couzens is to be commended for his amazing service

Christopher Couzens is to be commended for his amazing service helping us buy a Condominium in Florida. We started with a telephone call in June 2019, and - from about 4,000 miles away in Europe - began working with Christopher and his team. We met in November for the first time and right away knew we'd made a good choice in working with him. We had only a week in Florida before having to leave the Ft. Lauderdale area. During that week, we saw about a dozen units, and chose one we liked. Christopher helped us construct an offer, assisted with negotiations when the seller became difficult, and later worked with us to cancel that offer. The very next day we saw a unit we wanted, and again worked with Christopher and his team. An offer was made and accepted. Then the detailed work began. Christopher had a timeline built with the milestones we needed to cross. Even while he was away on what we're sure was a well-deserved vacation, he left us in the capable hands of one of his associates. Once back, we finished the deal during Thanksgiving week and had our first few days there. Christopher and his team... - Handled every issue that got thrown at them - by Buyer (us) or Seller, - Was responsive to every inquiry we made, - Arranged great coverage when he was away, - Worked with our lender and suggested others, - Was present - physically when needed, reachable otherwise - throughout, - Kept a sense of humor even as things got tense with the first offer ...and were all around great. Highly recommended!

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS

Being brand new to the area of South Florida and the country my husband and I met Christopher at an open house one Sunday afternoon. We decided to work with Christopher based on his extensive knowledge of Ft. Lauderdale and surrounding areas. We knew that based on his passion and market research we would be able to find the perfect new home. Christopher was there with us throughout the process and even once the transaction was complete providing an exceptional customer experience and a very quick response time. By listening to our needs and style requirements Christopher was able to quickly narrow in on a search area and find us exactly what we were looking for. He worked hard to negotiate the best possible price for us and with his background in project management was able to juggle all aspects of the sale and provide above and beyond support as well as constant follow up between both parties including mortgage, insurance and title to make sure all deadlines were met and we were able to close on time. Christopher orchestrated numerous inspections on the property and upon closing did a final walk through with us at which point we discovered a leak in the new roof due to heavy rainfall that day. Christopher acted quickly and had a clause added to the agreement for repair with funds held and we were still able to close on time. Upon closing Christopher made sure to provide constant follow up between us, the seller and contractors to ensure the agreement was upheld and that the repairs were done to our satisfaction. It was a pleasure working with Christopher these past few months. I have full confidence in Christopher’s knowledge and abilities as a realtor and I will use him again in the future. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

FAR ABOVE THE TYPICAL CLIENT – REALTOR RELATIONSHIP

We initially met Chris at an open house of one of his listings. It was in a neighborhood that we were familiar with and had enjoyed renting within. We expressed an indecisiveness about purchasing a vacation home. That was all he needed to begin an exhaustive search. He was thorough and highly organized. He was “all in”. Understanding that we were in NY he was our eyes and foot soldier. Our complete trust in him occurred over time and it was a judgement we have come to rely on. After many remote walk-throughs, we purchased a 2nd home in the area of our original meeting. Chris went far above the typical client – realtor relationship. Chris also helped oversee getting our new home up and running. This was extremely helpful. We highly recommend Christopher as his professionalism and abilities are outstanding.

— David & Cindy C., Buyers

GENUINELY CARES, LISTENS, IS SUPER ORGANIZED AND HAS INTEGRITY

We were referred to Christopher by some friends. We had a very limited knowledge of the area and were looking for an investment property (condo) that allowed pets and had specific rental guidelines. Christopher took us to many properties and shared his knowledge and insight during the entire process. He was super patient and understanding as we encountered many unforeseen issues with sellers – and explained he would be there for us for the long haul as we muddled through our search. Christopher explained that his job is more service than sales – never ever pressuring to “just buy something”. He took the time even when we had to return north to go check out properties – which we would tour via video chat. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty and hard work ethic are much respected and truly appreciated. When we found the unit we wanted, he was again there in our absence for the home inspection and for closing. He was always available and answered every question we threw at him. He recommended a first-class title company which also made things go super smooth. I now consider Christopher a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home, investment property or rental unit. I know once my unit is ready for rental, I will be reaching out to him to assist. He is your man if you are looking for a realtor who genuinely cares, listens, is SUPER organized and has integrity. GIVE HIM A CALL!! you won’t be disappointed!!!!

DELIVERED RESULTS FAR BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS

Christopher N. Couzens, PA delivered results far beyond my expectations. Upon our first meeting, Christopher exemplified the highest honesty and integrity. He was prepared and informed me of the current market value of my home with the pros and cons of the listing price to choose. I had done my homework prior to our meeting and we were in absolute agreement on the listing price. I then went out of town for 4 days. Christopher got to work! Wow, Wow, Wow! With over 15 showings and 8 strong offers, 7 above asking price and two cash. On my way home I was signing the contract for a cash offer that was 3 percent higher than asking price and a close within 30 days. Christopher delivered with flying colors. We did it, 29 days later we were at the closing table. Christopher was great to work with and kept me informed. Not only did he tell me the next 3 steps ahead, he held my hand and guided me through the current step we were on. I am so grateful to have worked with such an amazing real estate professional. Christopher’s actions throughout the process of selling my home were superior! I only wish I would have been moving to his area, however Christopher will be a part of all of my real estate deals moving forward. Even if it is a referral and guiding voice.

— Sonja N., Seller

I KNOW WE WILL NEVER USE ANYONE ELSE!

Christopher was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very focused on making sure he understood our needs and worked diligently to find us the perfect house at the best price. He is very knowledgeable and professional and extremely organized. He was right there with us throughout the entire closing process keeping us on track and making sure we never missed a deadline. He even helped us find the perfect lender. We never had to concern ourselves with what would be happening next or if we were forgetting to do something. It is very apparent that Chris prides himself on his reputation and he takes his job and your trust in him very seriously. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. I know we will never use anyone else!

— Cheryl & Jeff D., Buyer

HIS REPUTATION IS IMPORTANT TO HIM AND THAT’S HOW HE HANDLES HIS BUSINESS

Christopher has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I am so happy that he has found us the most fabulous apartment!! We can’t wait to move in next month. He is hard working, diligent and has lots of patience. His priority was making sure that he found the right place for us and after showing us many homes as well as neighborhoods, he found us the most perfect place! He is trustworthy, ethical, sincere and very caring. His reputation is important to him and that’s how he handles his business. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home!

— Noreen Lloyd, Renter

ANYONE WHO WORKS WITH HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Working with Christopher was a fantastic experience. I have dealt with other Realtors in the past who were pushy, others who were unreliable. I met Christopher at an open house in my old neighborhood and liked him immediately; he was very kind and not at all the pushy salesman one often gets in real estate. We made a consultation appointment after which I gladly signed on to have him as my sole Realtor. I work full time and go to school, and Christopher really made a point of not wasting my time. He setup a bunch of showings for my days off and gave me straightforward input to help me make the best decisions for me and my needs. He had great suggestions for trusted companies (title co., lender, inspector, and insurance) all of which I used and had excellent service. Once I found the place I really wanted, Christopher’s work really began. He stayed on top of everyone in the process – the sellers real estate agent, the title company, lender, insurance – he did not let anyone delay me closing on this house. He especially helped me stay on top of things that needed signing, filing, scanning, etc. It was because of his diligence that I closed on my home on July 1st, 2015. Buying a house is a stressful and overwhelming experience, and I am confident that I’d still be renting in my old apartment if it hadn’t been for Christopher. Anyone who works with him will not be disappointed. I highly recommend Christopher.

MY GO TO REALTOR FOR ALL SOUTH FLORIDA TRANSACTIONS

I have been through three real estate transactions with Christopher Couzens, one sale and two purchases. He is now my go to Realtor for all South Florida real estate transactions. I had other realtors in the past with various degrees of success. What sets Christopher apart from them is that he is thorough, professional, but most of all he keeps his word. When he says, he’s going to be somewhere or do something, it gets done. He is on top of inspections, appraisals, setting closing dates, time tables, and documents that need to be signed. Because I used Christopher, I had no hold ups on my end. For my purchase, I gave a very vague set of criteria, such as price range, area, and that the property be something unusual. Within two meetings, Christopher had narrowed down my needs and wants, and quickly found me a place that I am thrilled with. You won’t go wrong with Christopher Couzens! He is not like many of the other Realtors. Meet with him, take a few minutes to tell him what you want, I think you will be happy with Christopher Couzens.

— Michael Davis, Seller and Buyer

IF I HAD TO RATE CHRISTOPHER HE WOULD DEFINITELY BE A 10 OUT OF A 10

It is with great pleasure to recognize Christopher Couzens. In our society people are quick to complain. Yet, when something good happens they brush it aside. Christopher’s positive and professional attitude is outstanding. His courteousness is a definite plus. He is sincere and passionate in making sure that you are happy in searching for a place to call home. Christopher is very professional. He was always encouraging us to save and tag documents for easy access. He made sure to ask for official papers from our brokerage lender so that he could keep in touch with him and question any errors. If not for his review and search of documents, we would have paid unnecessary monies or duplicate payments. Christopher is a courteous individual. He was always apologizing for calling and requesting necessary documents. He continuously told us that he was available 24/7 to meet with us if we had questions. He politely continued to let us know that purchasing a home should be a patient and exciting experience. Christopher is very sincere and passionate in his profession. He takes his job very seriously. From the minute we met Christopher, we knew after talking with him that he was the agent for us. His passion for his profession is very noticeable. If I had to rate Christopher he would definitely be a 10 out of a 10.

A TRUSTED PARTNER:

A Trusted Partner. We met Christopher at an open house when we were just beginning to think about purchasing a home. Beginning with our initial interaction with Christopher, he was always polite, professional, responsive, extremely detail oriented and consistent without being pushy, overbearing or making us feel like we were being sold anything. He provided us with the information that we needed and when we were ready to start our home search in earnest, was a trusted partner. He always put our best interests first and took the time to thoroughly and rationally explain each step of the process. Christopher took the time to understand our life and our priorities in order to understand what we were looking for in a home. We always felt that he was a partner and that we were more than a transaction to him. Christopher was straight forward with us on the realities of the real estate market, telling us what we needed to hear, rather than simply what we wanted to hear. This helped us better understand the market and the home buying process and helped to focus us on what mattered and the timeframes that we had when faced with decisions to act or to not act. Throughout what is at best, an anxious and at times frustrating process, Christopher always went above and beyond to keep us centered and provide us with peace of mind. Christopher was on top of every part of the process and his attention to detail and network of professional partners provided us with great confidence. Even after we closed on our new home, Christopher has stayed a trusted advisor and has proactively helped us in getting settled into our families new home. We highly recommend Christopher Couzens for any real estate need and he will be the only call that we will make with any real estate need going forward. We were lucky to have found Christopher. You will not find a more trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable real estate professional

CHRISTOPHER IS A REALTOR SECOND TO NONE

Christopher is a realtor second to none. At the onset of our house search, we gave him some very particular criteria, and he certainly delivered. He quickly became in-tune with what we were looking for and found us the exact house in our desired location. Throughout the whole process, Christopher laid out a timeline and ensured all participants (inspector, appraiser, lender, title company, and selling agent) delivered on time. We couldn’t be happier in our new home, and extremely glad we chose Cristopher from the thousands of realtors in this area. He is intimately familiar with the entire house-buying/selling process, very friendly, and now, a new friend. An absolute true professional. You won’t be sorry you chose Christopher as your buying or selling agent.

— Jim and Robin Burd, Buyers

WE TRULY BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE FOUND BOTH A REALTOR AND A FRIEND IN CHRISTOPHER, AND WOULD REFER HIM TO ANYONE TRYING TO BUY OR SELL THEIR HOME.

My fiancé and I were looking to buy our first home and we were referred to Christopher by family who recently bought a house with him. They said he was amazing and he absolutely stood up to those expectations. Christopher took the time to go through every question we had with patience and was extremely knowledgeable. He not only wanted to meet all our demands for what we wanted in a home, he tried to exceed them. He spent countless hours going over neighborhoods and offered suggestions when we were unsure about what to do. He always made himself available by phone or text. We truly believe that we have found both a realtor and a friend in Christopher, and would refer him to anyone trying to buy or sell their home.

— James Gorvetzian and Shauna Doan, Buyer

HE RESTORED OUR CONFIDENCE IN A REAL ESTATE AGENT

Having previously had a disappointing experience with a real estate agent, Christopher was recommended to us by mutual friends. From the very start we felt comfortable with Christopher. Christopher immediately restored our confidence in a real estate agent. Christopher was very professional, always made himself available including weekends and holidays for any concerns or questions, and he literally led us through this process of buying a condominium every step of the way. Christopher explained everything in detail and let us know what to expect. Christopher was definitely the reason this purchase went so smoothly. I highly recommend using Christopher as your real estate agent and I will let everyone i know what a great job he does. If we were to purchase or sell any property in the future, we would definitely use Christopher!

CHRISTOPHER N. COUZENS, PA WITH DOUGLAS ELLIMAN REAL ESTATE IS A MIRACLE REALTOR.

Christopher N. Couzens, PA with Douglas Elliman Real Estate is a miracle realtor. My wife and I wanted to purchase a vacation home in Fort Lauderdale. He guided us through every step helping us to compare and analyze several condominiums available on the market. We live in the Northeast so after our initial trips to Florida, we had to put our trust in Christopher. This particular purchase had obstacles that were out of the ordinary, and Christopher worked tirelessly to solve every problem. Christopher has proven to be thorough in his approach to every challenge. He is an excellent negotiator who was able to keep the end result amicable and fair for all parties. He was also able to provide excellent contacts for any services needed throughout the process. Christopher has even committed himself to help complete necessary tasks beyond the closing because we live 1300 miles from the property. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Long distance buyers can rest easy working with Christopher, and he is a professional not to be overlooked by local clients.

I CAN, WITHOUT ANY RESERVATIONS, GIVE MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION FOR THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICES OF CHRISTOPHER COUZENS

An absolutely remarkable job in selling my condo. At a time when this building was undergoing extensive rehabilitations and refurbishments with unknown future assessments and expenses making for great difficulty in marketing this property, Christopher was able find just the right purchaser and skillfully usher this transaction thru to closing an just a few months. With weekly reporting on the progress of this sale we were kept well informed of all activities related to the marketing effort. I can, without any reservations, give my highest recommendation for the professional services of Christopher Couzens to anyone who is fortunate enough to avail themselves of his service and expertise. .
