"When it comes to real estate agents, Chris operates on a professional level that exceeds other realtors. He understands the sellers and understands where he needs to go to get the right buyers. He has relentless energy to get the job done. Not only did he help me sell my condo at a record setting price for its market, he then helped me find a house I feel I bought at below market value. Chris knows the market intimately and is a true professional, He is the best! In buying or selling real estate, I would never consider using any other real estate professional, PERIOD!"

"When I found out I would be relocating back to Miami, I immediately called Chris Helmstetter. Chris is well known in the Greater Detroit area for helping people find second homes, transfers, etc. I told him to focus on the Aventura area. Chris had listings and appointments set up the next day after I arrived as requested. Chris gave vital information as to the development of the Aventura area including innovating changes, which would increase the value of my purchase. About two months later, the same important information Chris gave me was featured on the front page of a largely circulated newspaper titled "Changing Aventura." I would recommend Chris Helmstetter without reservation for any real estate needs in the South Florida area.

The two of you make a strong team. Chris, your knowledge of the area and your willingness to take the time needed to look at every property made me feel confident and important. Lera, your attention to every detail and multiple daily contact and follow up gave me confidence to know that all was handled.
My new home is everything I wanted. Easy access for guests, no unneeded staff, low maintenance fees, pool and beach access make it a perfect building. The size of the unit layout worked better than I could imagine."
