Christopher Behrens and Charlotte Clausen at the New Era Group are consummate professionals. They are knowledgeable, responsive, and fully dedicated to their clients. They worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we found the home of our dreams. John and Xiu Rong
Chris Behrens' met with my wife and I well before we moved cross-country to Denver. He was patient as we changed neighborhood preferences and flip-flopped between wanting a condo and a single family dwelling. Ultimately, we won a bidding war thanks to Chris' invaluable advice, expert negotiation, and people skills. We couldn't be happier in our new home and it's all because we chose the right real estate agent!
We stumbled on Chris Behren's office on a Monday and had our perfect condo by the end of the week! Chris Behrens and Charlotte Clausen saved us so much time and frustration, and everyone they worked with from the mortgage to property management was excellent. Be sure to start your pre-qualifying early because Chris is going to find exactly what you want!
We have both sold and bought homes through Chris Behrens. In this case, we also had the help of his assistant Charlotte Clausen. We have always found Chris to be timely, professional and successful in dealing with our sales and purchases. Chris takes the extra steps of appraising and staging our homes as well as utilizing the services of a professional photographer. We would highly recommend both Chris Behrens and Charlotte Clausen to anyone in the Denver metro area in the purchase or sale of a home.
We were so lucky to have worked with Chris Behrens. He is amazingly sincere and knows so much about the area, what to look for in buying a house, as well as a great sounding board. The biggest reason we went with him was he knew what to look for in the bones of a house. We moved here from Texas and the housing market is completely different. We are second time home owners and had never dealt with older homes. Chris went the extra mile to look at the bones of homes and just walk us through what to look for. He was also so helpful in the negotiation process and ensuring we got a good quality home. We are so happy and can’t believe what a great house we got. It was so funny, it seemed like Chris knew everyone in Denver and everything we needed in transitioning to Denver he always knew a person that were good to work with best. In every case, I did my homework and looked at a few companies, and every time we made a decision on who to go with it was one of the people he suggested. Very helpful!! Above and beyond team!! You can tell he loves his job and he loves people.
My husband and I could not be more thrilled to recommend Chris Behrens and his team and his contacts for all things related to buying or selling a house. Chris fielded my many email requests to see house after house and met with us multiple times to do multiple showings on weekends around the holidays (and even on his son’s birthday!) all with a smile on his face. He responded to emails, texts, phone calls and even Facebook messages. He’s the ultimate in customer service. Chris also makes you feel super comfortable throughout the process, always checking in to make sure we weren't lost or anxious about anything, and for every step, he’s got knowledgeable and reputable contacts who we felt totally comfortable with. We had a bit of a rough house buying experience prior to meeting Chris (when we didn't have an agent at all) and were so happy to see how painless the process can actually be. It was actually fun! We’re so excited about our new house and we will definitely go with Chris in any future real estate endeavors, and recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.
I just happened to walk in one day last summer to get a feel for the real estate market in the neighborhood. Chris Behrens was very friendly, knowledgeable and communicated in a way I could relate to. I was not sure when was the right time to buy and Chris Behrens kept me informed on the market trends. Chris Behrens had helped me to identify the type of property I needed and recognized my timeline was fairly wide open. When the right property came on the market (actually before it was on the market) Chris Behrens brought it to me and everything was perfect. From looking for a property through the whole closing process Chris Behrens and his team, as well as their partners in financing & title, took great care of me. I would highly recommend Chris Behrens, The New Era group and Guild to anyone!
I had the great fortune of having Chris Behrens recommended to me when I was searching for my first home. He made my first home purchase a great experience from start to finish. A few years down the road it was time to sell that home. I was living out of state and concerned about the logistics of selling a home 1200 miles away. Chris Behrens again went above and beyond to take care of the small things I could not be there to do. Making my first home selling experience stress free. Chris Behrens was professional, extremely knowledgeable, and went above and beyond for me...Twice. Thanks Chris
I have worked with a lot of Realtors and Chris Behrens is by far the best. I never would have landed my dream home if it wasn't for his expertise and vast knowledge of the market. Chris Behrens made looking for my home fun. Everyone knows that this process can be daunting and a little exhausting, I never felt like this with Chris Behrens, it was a pleasure working with him. The process went very smoothly and he made everything easy for me to understand. He also had me get in touch with Eric Kulbe with Guild Mortgage and they handled everything very efficiently and made the closing process a breeze. I am so happy that I happened to stumble upon his office and have him as my realtor! Thanks Chris, you are the Best!
I met Chris Behrens about 5 years ago when I graduated from college and started to look for a place to buy. Soon after looking I realized purchasing a home would be a poor choice and decided to go the apartment route instead. It was in these 5 years that I realized Chris Behrens was not only a good realtorr but also a great person. Chris was extremely patient..in fact 5 years worth of patience. Chris Behrens does not use overwhelming tactics in dealing with clients, instead he spends most of his time educating his clients on the market and getting to know exactly what they want and having the patience to wait for when they're ready. My wife and I sold our condo and within the next week, we had found our dream home. As we started to panic, naturally, Chris Behrens helped us streamline this process professionally and quickly. We could not be more happy to have Chris in our corner throughout this process and would gladly recommend him and his team. Thanks Chris for the years of realty advice and friendship, we really appreciate it.
We have worked with a few Realtors in the past, but none of them gave us the direction and attention Chris Behrens did. He made sure that we were narrowing our search and finding a house that fit our needs, in the area and price point we wanted to stay within. He asked great questions and gave great direction to help us get into the house that we had been dreaming of. I would recommend Chris Behrens to anyone looking for a new home!
Chris Behrens made this the easiest process ever! We moved to Colorado three months ago and were living in temporary housing when we met Chris. He is so professional and friendly but most importantly he loves his job and Denver. Chris Behrens is so knowledgeable about the area and the housing market. I felt completely at ease working with him. He handled everything start to finish and made sure everything was just right. Chris really took care of us above and beyond and made us feel like we were working with one of our closest friends. Chris Behrens is a true professional and I will recommend him to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. Thanks Chris!
We found Chris Behrens through a referral from a friend because his experience would help us find a home that we could make our own. Chris Behrens was great at every step of the process. When it came time to make an offer, he got ours to the top of the list. Even in a competitive market, Chris Behrens made it an easy experience that was nothing like the stressful experience we often heard buying our first home would be.
Five or so years ago, I strolled into an open house that was way above my price limits, at a time I was not ready to buy. Christopher Behrens approached me, and we coolly spook about the home in open house, and I explained that I was looking to buy, but not for a few more months. Chris Behrens, casually asked me some questions about what I was looking for, and in our friendly conversation I explained to Chris what I was looking for. Chris Behrens and I exchanged contact information, and I did not give this another thought. Several months passed by, and Chris touched base with me to see if I was ready to start looking at homes to buy. It just so happened that I was. I was looking to buy, and hoping that the buying process would correlate with my rent agreement, so that I would not have to owe money for breaking a lease, nor owe money for extending a lease and living month to month. Chris Behrens had me in my dream home, just as my lease ran out. It was perfect! I had become a homeowner, and I was planning on dying in my new home. A hiccup happened in my life soon after my purchase. I became a single mother, to a beautiful little girl. We lived very happily in my dream home for three years. Being away from family (all on the East Coast), became a new issue that I had never had before I became a mom. I contacted Chris Behrens. It was too soon to sell; I would have to bring a lot of money to the table. Chris helped me find a wonderful property management company! I was so grateful to have found Chris Behrens. I was not only his former client, but I felt like his friend.
I had come to terms with being a landlady, something I never dreamed of doing! Out of the blue, Chris Behrens contacts me, saying he has good news! He thinks we can sell me home, and that I might be able to walk away free and clean. This sounds wonderful to me, as I found it taxing to be a landlady who lived on the East coast, with reality in Colorado. I once again became Chris’s client. Chris Behrens is such a patient, knowledgeable man. Though the thought of selling your home in Colorado while working and living in North Carolina is a very scary one, Chris was able to help me feel comfortable and confident in my decisions. He helped keep me well informed, and helped me feel on top of things.
While working with Chris Behrens, I always felt as if he had limitless time to handle my needs. He never gives excuses for being too busy; he always listens well and explains well, taking time for detail. Chris Behrens goes out of his way, to make sure his clients’ needs and desires are met. I have bought and sold a home with Chris as my mentor, and guide. The only downfall I have found in working with Chris Behrens is that Chris Behrens does not deal with Real Estate in North Carolina.
My wife and I weren't just new to buying a home, we were new to Denver and Colorado. Chris Behrens took all our questions and pent up New York energy in stride and found us the place we wanted pretty much instantaneously. He was there for us every step of the way, never sent us down a wrong path, and kept us laughing every second. Now that it's all said and done, we're wondering what all the fuss is about: Chris Behrens really made buying a home easy. Next time we buy, we'll call up Christopher Behrens at New Era Realty. Thanks, Chris!
Chris Behrens is a top professional who helped zero in on my needs for a dwelling. He is knowledgeable about availabilities and seemed to cut through the clutter to find a property match for me. Chris Behrens quickly contacted me after I looked on the New Era web site at some property. He maintained that same responsiveness throughout the process, including great advice to pre-approval for a mortgage, watching over the mortgage approval process, inspection, property association communication, and finally closing. Chris Behrens is "On-Top" of the technology to make paperwork and approvals as easy as possible. On top of being a professional, Chris is a very personable person to work with. Working with Chris Behrens really answered the question "why do I need a real estate agent"? Thanks Chris!
As a first-time home buyer didn't know where to begin. I found Chris Behrens online and reached out to him. After our first phone call I knew I wanted to work with him. He made me feel special and not like just another client. We found my dream home, which was already under contract. With Chris Behren's experience, perseverance and professionalism we put in a back up offer and it was accepted! I don't think it would have happened if Chris Behrens wasn't my agent. I'm now living in my dream home in the heart of City Park. Working with Chris was such a pleasure I would recommend him a million times over. Thank you Chris Behrens and New Era Realty!
Chris Behrens is one of those professionals that you rarely have the pleasure of recommending to your friends, but that pleasure is mine. Chris first met my wife, responding to a message she left online. On that information alone, he actually called her and spent more than 30 minutes on the phone. At the time, we were not even sure that we were in the market for a new home, and we were living in New York City. Still, Chris Behrens not only gained her trust and confidence, but he demonstrated what he would later tell us; that he really cared about what was best for us. Apparently, that care was there even if we didn't give our business to him, because at that point the chances we had of buying a home in Denver were slim. However, when our circumstances firmed up, we knew exactly who to call. Chris was energetic and passionate when I first spoke with him on the phone. His patience with me was really evident when I gave him my "first draft" of the lofty criteria I had for a new home. He never once seemed anxious, and that attitude served to reassure us throughout the whole buying process. On our first meeting, Chris Behrens demonstrated tremendous flexibility and trust in us when we asked him to ride with us to the homes he was showing us (our idea; his car was much nicer, though!) At the first house we looked at, a man on the sidewalk asked if he could see inside the house with us. A potentially awkward situation was quickly diffused by his winsome attitude. In that moment, I remember thinking to myself "this is EXACLY the guy I want negotiating with my future seller!" One of the most impressive parts of our experience with Chris Behrens, besides his VAST market knowledge and many years of experience, was his technical savvy. We never saw a physical piece of paper from Chris until we signed our paperwork at the closing; not because Chris Behrens was never able to provide it, but because his technology was just that good. We looked at listings on his tablet, shared his computer screen online (very time saving), and signed documents electronically. The trick with technology is not just having the capability, but getting it all to work SEAMLESSLY, and Chris had this down to an art. The whole process felt very green; I'll never know how many trees we saved. The home Chris Behrens found for us was PERFECT, demonstrating that he not only knew the market, but he knew us. When we decided to make an offer, we only had to make that decision ONCE; Chris got our first and only offer accepted on that perfect house, where I now sit typing this, and our first offer was under the listed price! I have since spoken with several people in our neighborhood, and they all confirmed what we knew then; we got a GREAT deal on this house! Behind the scenes, Chris Behrens lined up financing for us at a VERY competitive rate. He had other great vendors, too: his home inspector and his roofer were both at the top of their games. Chris Behrens is a tireless worker. We know that several times, he had to change his schedule around for us, and that he spent several very late nights at work for us. I really valued that he was generous with his time; that's a hard quality to find in anyone, let alone a client-based businessman, but Chris Behrens proved to be more than that. He proved to really care. This was our third home purchase experience; having done this before, I have experience to compare Chris Behrens to. In every way, he absolutely hit it out of the park. I'm from south Denver originally, and lived there for 20 years, so I know the market. I am personally networked to many other real estate agents and finance professionals in the area, and I STILL would recommend Chris Behrens and his team above everyone else. I must admit; getting all the stars to align like we did in terms of market state, financing, the perfect home, and a motivated seller simply can't be done in every home buying situation. But it's hard to see how we could have capitalized on all of these without Chris Behrens. We've been in our home for more than 3 months now, and the good experience of buying this place still hasen't worn off on us. We wouldn't be here without him. It was my honor to spend so much time with Chris, and confidently - perhaps even EVANGELISTICALLY - recommend him as your next real estate agent.
Thank you to Chris Behrens for making my home sale happen. I was selling my home by owner, and Chris Behrens brought a potential buyer. When his client decided on a different home in the area, Chris swiftly found the right buyer, who fell in love with and purchased my home. It was truly a pleasure dealing with Chris Behrens - I actually felt like he had my back, and he wasn't even my agent.
Chris Behrens exhibited extensive knowledge of the rental market in Denver. His connections in the industry were very beneficial. Chris Behrens was able to accommodate my husband and I's dramatically different shopping and buying styles. Talk about flexibility! We ended up with a solid first investment property. Thanks for making what could have taken months and been a nightmare, a relatively pain free process! I recommend Chris Behrens to anyone in the market for a new home/investment property.
