chris did a great job last week selling my building , in a difficult sf market he treated every body,including,tenants, buyers, and escrow officers in the same efficient and professional manner. he proved to be informed in all aspects of the sf real estate market and used his talent to make my sale run smoothly, he was always available and on time. these are some of the reasons i would highly recommend chris to handle any of your real estate needs

I have used Chris several times over the years, and he is BY FAR the most informed, connected and professional agent broker I have ever worked with. Chris has been handling multi-unit properties in San Francisco for 30 years, and he publishes a great monthly quantitative analysis of SF multi-unit properties. He has an MBA, so he thinks and speaks like an investor. Can't recommend him enough.

Owning a two unit building in San Francisco, I had been receiving Chris's quarterly newsletter for years so when I was ready to sell I contacted him. I'm so happy I did. Selling a home of 30 years is not easy for so many reasons but Chris, because of his knowledge, expertise, contacts and pleasant but professional manner made it go as smoothly as could be expected. The market was hot in SF, of course, but I know the building would not have sold for as much as it did had it not been for Chris's suggestions for minor building improvements and his hard work. There are a lot of real estate agents in San Francisco but I can't imagine that any are the equal of Chris Panou.

First of all, I have been in real estate for quite some time and have bought and sold many places for many years. But I have never come across a guy like Chris. I have known Chris for nearly a decade and he is by far the most intelligent, most professional, most service oriented guy I have ever come across. Buying or selling a property is not as easy as many folks imagine. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes and believe me you want someone who has your back. Chris is that guy. He goes beyond the call of duty and there is nothing this guy does not know about investment properties in SF. I would trust him with my life. Final note, and sorry for being long winded, but if you are looking at multi unit properties in SF - this is Chris' bread and butter. Again, buying or selling, he is the guy you need representing you. He is also ultra patient. He will be there for you 24/7 until the right opportunity arises.

I've known and worked with Chris for years. His knowledge of the real-estate market, San Francisco legislation related to tenants, condo conversion, transfers and much more, gives you the confidence that you are in the best of hands when either listing or having Chris representing you as a buyer. In addition to all that - he is a great guy. I would highly recommend Chris Panou.

In my recent experience, if you have a residential rental property to sell in SF, you can't do any better than Chris. His attention to detail, his relentless moving forward over the next hurdle, and his overall knowledge of the right decision at the right time, continually impressed me throughout the entire process. When I first started working with Chris, it wasn't long til it became clear that all I had to do was leave him in the driver's seat. He always asked for my input where appropriate, and if I was off base, he didn't hesitate to set me straight, always in a good-natured way. He sold my property for much more than I ever thought possible! Chris Panou...a true professional!
