Chris is very knowledgeable and extremely thorough. He always had my back and made sure nothing fell through the cracks.

Phil and Julie Miller sold land

While listing one of our properties (1 acre lot), Chris became aware of access issues across a neighbor's property. Chris recommended we get a real estate attorney involved, which we did. Even though we took the Listing off the Active market to correct the issues, Chris was absolutely relentless working with us and our attorney to help resolve all the access issues. The support that Chris gave us throughout the process made a difficult situation bearable. Chris was able to reactivate the Listing and close the sale. We are truly thankful for the hard work and guidance Chris provided throughout the process. We will use Chris again in the future and highly recommend him to family and friends. Thanks – Phil and Julie Miller / Bainbridge Island

Michael C Casebeer bought a home

Chris Miller did a great job working with the builder despite being challenged with an over 6-month construction contract that had to be extended. Chris worked very hard to ensure the best flow of information with the builder as well as the coordination of a myriad of paperwork requirements. We were able to move very quickly on a late Friday offer with Chris' partner Bill's help and Chris was always available to answer questions and get feedback to the builder. Thanks again guys. Great Job!

Donna & Bill Dowdney

"Bill Barrow and Chris Miller were an outstanding team of Realtors who helped us buy and sell property on Bainbridge Island in three transactions. They prepared a detailed marketing analysis and consistently followed up with additional insights. They guided us through the process of preparing our home for sale. We highly recommend this outstanding professional team."

Bill Corbin bought a lot

Bill and Chris with their professionalism and years of experience helped get us submit an airtight winning offer for this nice Indianola lot. I assigned it to my daughter Monica who Sherri Snyder had helped starting over a year and a half ago search for a nice lot in the Indianola area. I think Sherri's spirit was inspiring me that morning on Feb 19th when I took a quick turn through Indianola to see if anything new might be on the market. There it was, a sign for a two day old listing in Monica's preferred neighborhood. Five days later we had won the lot. Many Thanks, Bill, Chris and Sherri

Chris knows Bainbridge Island very, very well. He is truly an expert real estate agent, whether you are buying or selling. He spots the flaws and the gems and quietly waits for you to ask him for his opinions. He sees the path of how to bring a deal together amicably. Patient, courteous, communicative, thoughtful, helpful and at the end of the deal - you want him as a friend. We have used him more than once and will continue to use him again and again. Put your trust in his guidance, you won't be sorry.

Professionalism and knowledge of the Market

Sold a lot

It was not easy trying to sell a property on Bainbridge Island while living in Calif. But I was fortunate to find Chris Miller as my agent through Bill and Chris's newsletter which I was receiving for several years, until recently I decided to downsize and sell the property. He responded to my initial phone call very promptly. With his knowledge and honesty, he helped me in pricing the land, advertising it, and negotiating with potential buyers. Chris kept me informed continuously from beginning to end through email and phone calls. He was ever so patient. I highly recommend him.

This sale was actually a one acre wooded lot on Bainbridge Island. Chris deserves 5 stars because he kept me informed at all times. He was very helpful with any kind of problem that required advice or action. He was always easy and quick to respond with any communication that was needed.

Joe Douglas Sold a Lot

He took on a tough sell, handled it like a pro, kept me informed and sold the property, not a house, for a fair price. I will use him again. I have known and used him to sell my properties over a 30 yr span. all good results.

Bought a lot

Chris handled our transaction like a true professional. He's a highly skilled communicator, ensuring all parties are kept informed of the status at all times. He has so much experience in the industry that nothing was new or challenging for him - he clearly and simply walked us through the process of a successful land purchase. He offered valuable and strategic advice and followed our wishes precisely. Chris even walked the land with us in the pouring rain to better offer his assessment of the value. We were especially impressed by the respect he showed the other agent involved in our transaction - often I sense tension there, but Chris is a true gentleman. We also appreciated his sense of humor and ready smile - a real pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris and will use him again ourselves.

Sold a home

We have the utmost respect and confidence in the services that Chris Miller and his office has to offer on Bainbridge Island. The advice Chris gave to us on marketing our property and the timing of the listing was invaluable in getting a fair and equitable results. In addition, Chris was a hands-on agent, overseeing many details of the prep, maintenance and selling process onsite when we were not able to be on the property. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris, now or in the future as a valuable leader in the real estate business.

Chris was very attentive and proactive with all the details of our home sale. We had a fast closing and with limited time had pulled together a team to resolve some inspection repairs. He even helped my wife on moving day with some last minute items while I was in California for job relocation.
He is thorough, experienced and professional.
A+ agent in every respect!

Sold a home

Over fifteen years ago, Chris Miller helped us to find, negotiate a price and close the deal on our home on Manitou Beach Drive. At the time, I was extraordinarily impressed with Mr. Miller’s professionalism, his deep knowledge of the local real estate market and his negotiating skills. When I decided to sell the house in today’s tough market, I knew Chris Miller was the person best able to manage the process. Before listing the house, Chris came over and did a very thorough walk through to provide us with an accurate assessment of the value of the house. He worked with us to determine what needed to be done prior to the listing and was very patient as we completed many of those items over the course of several weeks. When the time came to list the house, Chris returned and described to us ways in which we could enhance the curb appeal of the house. He then patiently discussed the paperwork with us – I am an attorney and was very impressed with his understanding of real estate law and the various agreements and documents we signed in preparation for listing and the eventual sale. Chris then went into high gear, promoting the house with local brokers, carefully listening to their feedback and forwarding that on to us. Chris kept us fully informed as the house was shown to potential buyers, providing us with feedback from each showing. He promoted the house in print and on-line. Although we were relocating and wanted to sell the house quickly, Chris waved us off of a couple of offers that he felt were insufficient or too risky. Then, amazingly, about three months after we had listed the house, we received an acceptable offer. Just when I thought Chris had done his job, he did more. He worked closely with us through the various inspections and contingencies that had to be satisfied before closing. One of the “soft skills” Chris used to great benefit was his management of the emotions involved in the sale. More than once, when I thought “enough” Chris would say “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.” I believe Chris may be the best real estate professional in the area. He has superb listening skills which allow him to understand the nuances of a deal. He is a polished negotiator and communicator. On top of all that, he knows the local real estate market like no one else. I would enthusiastically recommend Chris to anyone buying or selling real estate in Kitsap County.

Bought a home

Chris Miller is truly a gentleman whom I would recommend to anyone contemplating purchasing a home. After a thorough initial walkthrough, Chris recommended we have our own agent since he felt uncomfortable representing both seller and buyer, an ethical standard unheard of in my other real estate dealings. His recommended agent served us well. Negotiations were somewhat difficult and Chris did a great job facilitating the sale.

Sold a home

Chris Miller went beyond my expectations of a real-estate agent. In my final days of moving frenzy, he found a home for my furniture that had no place to go. When the buyers' agent was not able to be there, Chris was. He took the time to allow the soon to be owners, access to their future home. Chris was available for me, and the buyers, with our many questions and requests in that crazy month of accepting offers and signing papers. On the last day in my home, Chris had total empathy when it was time for the painful task of handing over my keys. I greatly appreciate his professional manner, along with his understanding of how difficult it was for me to leave my home.

Bought a home

We worked with Chris Miller. He is all the things you want in a realtor; friendly and responsive, knowledgeable, helpful and follows through to the very end on all the details necessary to buy a property and be satisfied with the purchase. In fact, for us, he went some extra miles that we didn't expect but really appreciated.

Sold a home

Chris Miller successfully sold the house and showed great respect and sensitivity for my aging parents. He kept us to all deadlines and we celebrated closing within 4 months!

Bought a home

My wife and I moved from Seattle to Bainbridge Island in 2010 and the process of moving took over 15 months as it took a long time to sell our house in Seattle. During this time Chris Miller helped us tremendously and showed us numerous properties. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the island and he was always very professional, friendly and extraordinarily patient. When we were negotiating the final purchase, Chris was invaluable to us and I felt like we had a true partner who was looking out for our best interests. We could not have had a better agent and I can highly recommend services. - PD

Bought a home

Chris was extremely helpful in the searching/buying process. He went significantly beyond what we would expect and had a genuine interest in us getting the thing we needed in order to feel comfortable with the purchase. He kept in touch with us whilst we lived overseas; visiting houses on our behalf and he would walk through room by room describing the house down to the last detail so that we would create a very clear picture in our mind together with photographs. Chris Miller and Bill Barrow are an incredibly knowledgeable and professional team. They are always willing to answer questions and are very prompt in returning telephone calls (even whilst we lived overseas for one year). They truly offer very good customer service before, during and after the job is done. For our next home we know who we will be calling.

Bought and sold a home

We downsized from the "raise the kids," house to "smaller and more manageable." Went from golf course frontage to waterfront. The process took place over a 14 month period because we purchased the second house before selling the first. Bill Barrow & Chris Miller handled both transactions. During the marketing period of the first house the agents provided monthly market data, which kept us informed of competitive listings and sales. This was very helpful to us. We would definitely work with them again.
