"... C.T. went above and beyond to drive the buyer's lender and agent on our behalf."
"The words that come to mind when working with C.T. is professional, poised, and results oriented. C.T. recently sold our property in Almaden at a price that shattered all expectations. He had a very clear listing strategy that generated multiple offers. We accepted a preemptive offer only 4 days after our property was listed. Even though the buyer's mortgage approval required a few extensions, C.T. went above and beyond to drive the buyer's lender and agent on our behalf. He is very calm under pressure and was providing us updates and consulting on a regular basis. He's a great negotiator and is very driven to get the deal done. My husband and I highly recommend C.T. as our transaction with him was very pleasant and in the end we got what we were expecting and more."

"I'd recommend anyone in the market of buying or selling a home to work with C.T.."
"We first worked with C.T. in 2010 after a co-worker had recommended him. He was very helpful and patient with my wife and I purchasing our first home which is a learning experience. When my wife and I wanted to sell our townhome this year to upgrade, it was a no brainer to work with C.T. again based on past experience. C.T. had our home on the market, sold and closed in two weeks which was essential to helping us get into our new home. C.T.'s integrity, experience, and prompt follow-up are incredible and I'd recommend anyone in the market of buying or selling a home to work with C.T."

"C.T. Harris is the best!"
"C.T. Harris is the best! You have no worries when C.T. Is on the job. He has handled eight real estate transactions for my family and friends and we can't say enough about his professionalism, attention to detail, patience and overall knowledge."

"... C.T. stands a cut above the rest, owing to his warm personality, his attention to detail, and his absolute, unfailing integrity."
"I must take a moment and acknowledge our realtor C.T. Harris for the exceptional work that he's done in marketing our house for sale. We recently placed my father's home on the market. We had been looking for someone with knowledge of the surrounding neighborhoods, including price/quality comparisons. I absolutely had to find someone with the marketing acumen to be able to get the property sold at the right price quickly. C.T. Harris guided my husband and I through the process, by initially researching the neighborhoods, detailing the comps and providing school district and land use information. After evaluation, C.T. promoted the home effectively as a mid-century house. C.T. then marketed the house to fortune 500 employees coming into the area. He provided us a detailed profile of the kind of buyer that he thought would be ideal, and he was absolutely correct. C.T. acted very effectively as our presales project manager, providing staging and improvements within a tight budget. Throughout, C.T.'s follow-up was exceptional. He acted as project manager for the renovation crew. He chose paint colors, flooring, landscaping, and appliances that would set the property off to its best advantage. C.T.'s timing to market was also amazing. At the initial open house, 10 offers came in on opening day. C.T. reviewed all of these, then provided us with valuable coaching and insight, allowing us to select the two best offers with the greatest likelihood of closing quickly. Of course, most realtors are personal, engaging and people-oriented. However, my husband and I feel that C.T. stands a cut above the rest, owing to his warm personality, his attention to detail, and his absolute, unfailing integrity. After this house transaction, I count him as a trusted friend. His personality comes from the heart, and his work ethic is quite uncommon."

C.T. has developed hundreds of unparalleled relationships that enable him to have the right information for home buyers in an extremely competitive market. He is an expert at timing in the market, making offers, and understands what it takes to get the home you want. He is a consummate professional, and his personal integrity in unmatched. If you are new to the area, or if you want an easy transaction, you can lean on C.T.'s network, ranging from lenders, to title, to designers, contractors, etc, etc. This awesome guy is a one stop shop! From a customer service standpoint, C.T. goes way above and beyond. We did some remodeling after buying our home with C.T.'s help, and he checked in at least 5 times just to see how things were going and make sure we were happy. He is an absolute pleasure to work with in every way, extremely positive, light-hearted, and just a really good person. I would highly recommend C.T. to anyone looking to buy a home. He will completely crush your expectations!"

"... each time we expanded the search or added on some new preference, he would due diligence to research and travel the options."
"When it was time to buy a home, we were very concerned about finding the right agent. As many of you know, this is not a buyer's market and having the right agent can make or break your search. We knew we needed someone with strong knowledge of the current market, solid relationships with other agents, dedication to the long-term search, savvy negotiation skills, and compassion. When C.T. came highly recommended to us, we set up an initial conversation, and it quickly became obvious that he was not only immediately honest and trustworthy, but truly cared about finding us the perfect home within our budget. We are a large family of surfers and gardeners with jobs rooted on the peninsula, so it was important that we have quick access to the beach, land to grow food, and doable daily commutes for an affordable price. Our search began in Los Gatos Hills, but changed many times as we became more and more educated on the surrounding areas. Eventually, we opened up our search to Scotts Valley, Santa Cruz, Capitola and Aptos as we just fell in love with the idea of ending our days at the beach vs near work. C.T. was so, so, so patient as we grew and transformed throughout the process -- each time we expanded the search or added on some new preference, he would due diligence to research and travel the options. He hiked up crazy hills just so we could see the view, was a sweetheart when we hit our "low-point-we'll-never-find-a-home-moment-that-we-can-afford," and gave us much-needed straight shot advice when we were considering what would've become a total money pit. Once we settled on our dream home, he worked relentlessly to make sure that we won. His contacts were also invaluable as we went through the inspections, loans, etc. We were so lucky to work with C.T. and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a home within his regions of expertise in the Bay Area."

"His actions, attitude, and hard working demeanor ultimately got us into our dream home and we COULD NOT be more thankful."
"My husband and I recently moved back to the south bay after living in San Francisco for over 12 years and a friend recommended C.T. to us as we began the journey of purchasing a home in the ever daunting real estate market that is Los Gatos. C.T. was absolutely amazing and I cannot say enough great things about him. He was very patient and attentive to our needs all the while giving us great advice and tips on how to get into this challenging market. He knows the ins and out of the market, has a great understanding of the town of Los Gatos (and surrounding areas) and has great relationships with many different people in the business which is always a great thing. He is also very creative and thinks outside the box which was pretty much the only way we were going to be able to buy a house in this area. After looking for a few months this summer, he was able to recommend a house to us off market which allowed us to avoid the massive competition that was going on.The process of purchasing this home was also somewhat challenging and involved a lot of negotiation and kind of unique situations. C.T. handled it in such a professional manner, never getting frustrated which therefore put us at ease. His actions, attitude, and hard working demeanor ultimately got us into our dream home and we COULD NOT be more thankful."
