Chris Tertzagian - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Chris helped us buy our first home in 2009!

She was (and is) so knowledgeable about every aspect of real estate. Chris is also patient, understanding and smart. She continues to keep us updated on the value of our home. Chris has become a friend to our family and she will be the one we call when it is time to move.

The Holmes Family

We have been working with Chris for a few years trying to find a new home that had everything we needed.

Chris showed us a bunch of houses over this time. She always gave us all the information we needed on the houses and always went above and beyond. When Chris saw a house in the area we wanted she wasted no time getting a viewing set up. We put an offer in and she worked tirelessly to make sure everything lined up. We are so excited and happy with the outcome. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a new house that wants a great experience.

Brian and Julia Larsen

Chris was recommended to us by a couple who had already moved out of town.

We were looking to buy a home; she was a phenomenal agent. Fast forward many years, and when we were looking to sell our home, she was the one we turned to again. She was a very upfront and honest with us about whether or not it was a good time to sell, which it turns out it wasn’t and she knew that. However, two years later, just as she predicted we would, we sold our house. She was right all along. When Chris says that she is loyal for life, she means it! Our first interaction with her was in 2006. We have remained in constant contact since, even though we moved across the country and no longer need her services. She sends our kids birthday cards and keeps in touch. She is real, honest, kind and incredibly talented (a secret she doesn’t share with everyone.) In our opinion, she is, hands-down, THE real estate agent for anyone interested in buying or selling in Charleston.

Anne Lawn

Chris is an excellent realtor.

. She's a true professional who really knows the business.. With a great deal of knowledge of the Charleston market, she helped us navigate both buying and selling homes. While other realtors tried to push us into homes or areas of town, Chris really got to know us and a clear picture of what we were looking for in our next home. I 100% recommend Chris to anyone looking for a realtor.

Jennifer Senn

Chris was awesome.

She spent alot of time asking questions and was very focused on helping me get the right house for me, She was very patient as it took me awhile! She did a great job writing the contract and saved me money. She's very knowledgeable and experienced. I highly recommend her.

Steve Ash

Chris managed our home purchase through some challenging moments, always with a smile on her face and a cheerful demeanour.

She is just a pleasure to be around. We also truly appreciated her honesty and “tell is like it is” attitude. Chris is knowledgeable, organised and diligent, a great communicator and bonus fun. We would have no hesitation asking Chris to represent us again in the future and now consider her a good friend. Lindsay & Carlton

Chris T was recommended to me by my daughter because she did such a great job selling her house.

Chris was really very helpful and patient with me. I would call her all the time and she would always help me with my questions and never complained. I knew nothing about selling a house and she was a great help with this process. She always had the right answers and always help me with all the emails that I had to process to sell my house. Thank you again Chris for all your help. Chris is also helping me sell property on Wadmalaw Island and helping me with a lot of issues with the property. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone that needs help selling their house or property. 👍😊

Brenda Strange

We have been working with Chris since the early 2010s when we bought our first house as a young couple (in a lot of educational debt) with a growing family.

Right away she seemed to know what was important to us and how to help us get it . After the first house on James Island, we bought and sold a lovely property in Riverland Terrace (at a tidy profit). Since then we have purchased a much bigger property in Summerville with her guidance and expertise. We continue to turn to Chris for our real estate questions and needs, because we know we can trust her.

Julia West

Chris helped me buy my first home without any problems!

It was a very quick and easy process especially for being a first time home buyer and I couldn’t have had a better person to help! I highly recommend Chris!

Jeffery Brown

Chris really worked hard for me to get my house ready for selling.

I had never sold a house before, so I needed a lot of help and advice. Chris always responded very quickly to text messages, phone messages, and emails. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

Dave Trautman

I decided to move south from the north.

I was clueless. Without chris’s knowledge, support and tenacity I would have not the perfect home that I have today. Her support and dedication is undeniable. Best person I know.

Barbara Liantonio

Where do I begin.

.. Chris goes above and beyond any realtor with which I have worked. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, and will have a solid game plan to assist you in your real estate needs. It’s why I’ve used her for multiple property buy and sells!!!

Stephanie Zgraggen

She is so knowledgeable about real estate you learn something new each time your with her. I will forever be grateful for everything she has done to help with the purchase of our home. 5+ stars!

Jennifer Tissot

We were introduced to Chris by our good friends over fifteen years ago, when we thought about selling our first home.

She was so personable and incredibly knowledgeable in her field. She made selling our home and buying a new one smooth and seamless. Through the years, she has remained dedicated and hardworking. We consider Chris not only to be the best real estate agent in Charleston, but also a wonderful friend.

Bryan and Wendi Lane

It was a pleasure working with Chris.

She is not only knowledgeable and professional agent, she is very caring and thoughtful person. I would highly recommend working with her on any real estate needs.

Sandy Lei

Chris has been our trusted advisor since our very first house purchase back in 2001.

And, thank goodness she was a rockstar, who knew the real estate market so well, because we had no clue what we were doing back then. But, with Chris’’ guidance, we found a wonderful home in a great location. Five years later, she helped us sell that house and we were very sad that she could not go to Durham, NC and then Atlanta, GA to guide us in our real estate transactions there. When we decided to move back to Charleston in 2015, we wouldn’t have considered anyone other than Chris to help us find the perfect home for our family and, as usual, she was amazing to work with. Houses were selling so quickly in our chosen area (and I was 7 months pregnant at the time and we had a 2 year old), so it was hard for us to travel in from Atlanta each time a good house came on the market. Thank goodness we had Chris on our team. She saw so many houses for us and gave us great feedback and photos on each. With Chris’ guidance and support, we ended up placing a contract on our home site unseen. We would never have felt comfortable doing that if we were working with anyone other than Chris. She has helped us search for land since then and to purchase a beautiful lot (so close to waterfront) that will, hopefully, one day be the site of a cute home away from home for our family. Chris knows the Charleston area and the real estate business so well. Her knowledge and experience are second to none! And, we know that she has our best interest at heart every time we work with her. She never hesitates to get out with us and look at properties when I think I have found the perfect waterfront lot or home. Chris has become more than an agent for us over the years, she has truly become our friend.

Jessica H

I would love to recommend Chris Tertzagian to you when you are in need of an agent.

Chris quickly learned the features that are important to us and screened numerous properties to assure we found what we were looking for. She was super helpful, always cheerful and a real pleasure to work with. We will continue to use Chris for all our residential purchases in South Carolina and can recommend her without any reservation. She is a gem..

Sherri Potter (Sunrise Community)

Chris is the absolute best!

She is everything you would want in a realtor: punctual, reliable, honest, real, kind, meticulous, helpful and just a wonderful person to hang out with while viewing houses! She found me EXACTLY the house I wanted in so little time even though what I wanted was near to impossible to find. Strongly strongly strongly recommended! 💜


Chris made our dream of living on Folly a reality!

She watched the MLS like a hawk and found our house first thing in the morning and we had an offer in by noon! We are so thankful for her vigilance and thoughtfulness in funding our home in our sleepy beach town!


I had a great experience with Chris buying my first condo.

She was extremely knowledgeable & honest. The process couldn’t have gone any smoother. I loved working with her so much, I referred her to my parents who also purchased a house using Chris!

Andrea Ortner

I have had the pleasure of working with Chris on three different real estate transactions.

She is very knowledgeable, organized and professional. Chris is a delight to work with!

Nancy Grathwohl

Chris and I have worked together for many years.

She finds the perfect home and I help navigate the mortgage loan process. I have watched Chris go above and beyond for her buyers again and again. Looking out for their best interest at every aspect of the transaction. A majority of Chris's business comes from direct referrals from past customers, usually a close friend or family member. She has worked with entire families from Mom and Dad to son and daughter, to grandchildren. Chris is someone you can trust.

Richard Gilbert

I was divinely guided (!

) to Chris and what a blessing she turned out to be for me and my family!!! I needed to find the best home for us within a short period of time, and Chris had exactly the right approach to helping me accomplish my mission. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, can think outside the box but doesn’t cut corners, is kind, thoughtful, inspirational, and has an abundance of common sense, know-how and can-do approach. She asked me pertinent questions and provided useful information which helped me narrow down my list of options. Chris helped me refocus when I became overwhelmed, and was readily accessible to answer my questions about the geographical areas I was interested in and aspects I needed to consider in making my decision. I’m well-versed in real estate and have worked with a large number of realtors in the past. Chris is a star! She brings 10000% integrity to her clients and to the field of realty. I’m so grateful that Chris was my agent - I felt supported, seen, heard, understood, and respected professionally and personally. I was able to trust and rely on Chris to help me navigate my challenging situation, and that was priceless. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for the best of the best - I am now a loyal client and fan!! She will be who I contact for my future realty adventures.

Kat B.

Chris was highly recommended to me from some of my professional friends, and they were spot on.

She went above and beyond to help me sale a home and assisted me with a new construction and all that comes with that. My sale+buy experience was great thanks to Chris!


Chris was an absolute joy to work with.

She worked with me when I bought my house, and again when I was ready to sell my house. She kept me informed throughout everything. She was patient with me when we looked at a lot of houses till we found the right house. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Charleston area.

Was a pleasure working with Chris.

Very professional from her first visit, informative, and very knowledgeable in her field. She was always available to answer any questions, and kept us informed from start to closing. I can’t say enough about our experience with her, thank you Chris!

Ed and Julia Childers

Chris made selling my house such an easy process.

She was always willing to take the extra time to explain the process to me and shouldered all of the stress throughout the process. There is no one else I would trust with guiding me through the process of buying or selling a house. She is truly the best you can ask for.

Melanie Mullikin

Selling a seventy year old house in another state with three separate owners is incredibly complicated, but Chris Terzagian invested all of her time and resources to accomplish the task seamlessly.

She was highly professional and compassionate while helping us work through any concerns and issues. She was consistently available and quick to respond to messages or calls. I highly recommend Chris without reservation!

Chelsea Kimbro

Chris was recommended to us by a coworker and what a blessing it was because she was absolutely terrific during our new build process.

Even though we went with a new build, she never failed to check in on us and was in constant communication with the builders, the mortgage team, and was there for every home tour and inspection. She answered our questions and made sure to ask the tough questions to the builders. When it came to closing, she made sure we weren’t in the dark about anything. Any friend we have that is thinking about buying a house, without a doubt we are giving them Chris’s number!

Joshua and Allie Enoch

Chris made the whole process of selling my home straight forward and easy for me.

I would highly recommend her!

Adam Cloyes

Absolutely Loyal For Life!

Chris has been our realtor on James Island for forever! As a local, it is invaluable to have a local real estate agent. Chris is vested in the community and knows everything from traffic patterns to who has the best yard for gardens. She has seen the market zig and zag and always has a pulse on what is real and what is spin. She will have your back and is well versed in the ever changing nuances of the housing market. Like my mom always said, “the devil is in the details” and no one understands the details like Chris. Couple that with her professionalism and great energy and you’re set!

Chris Hartzog

I can’t thank Chris enough for all the help and support she provided me during the sale of my townhome.

It was stressful at times but she was there for me through the entire process. I am thankful for her expertise. I trusted her completely and am very happy with the outcome. She is the most amazing realtor I have ever worked with.


I both bought and sold a house with Chris T and she has never lost touch over the past 13 years.

She freely shared her wealth of knowledge as a landlord while I was renting a couple of houses and has a wealth of contacts to get things done. She knows how to handle buyers and as a seller, all we did not always agree, she knows her business and was willing to take the time to explain the whys and wherefores. Tell her clearly what you need from the sale and she will honestly break it down for you.

Chris Courtney

Chris was my guide on the journey to becoming a first-time homeowner.

When I started looking for a home, I had no clue how the process worked. Luckily, I had a friend who did…Chris. She was able to shine a light on all the mysteries of how to make it happen and walked with me every step of the way. She is smart, friendly, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate business. Buying my first home changed my life for the better and I owe it all to Chris. If you are on your journey to becoming a homeowner, I highly suggest choosing Chris as your guide. Like me, you will be happy you did.

"Working with Chris Tertzagian when buying our first home was the best experience one could hope for! From our first phone consultation with Chris to learn more about us and what we were looking for down to the organization she managed over everything going on with the transaction that could be very stressful and overwhelming for anyone. I would never dream of working with anyone else besides Chris as our buyers Agent or Sellers Agent. A true gem in the industry who even personally reached out to wish me a happy birthday 6 months after the transaction had been complete. W.O.W! Thank you, Chris"

"I can’t speak highly enough of Chris as our real estate agent. Their is an endless amount of amazing things I can say about her. My fiancé and I were not only new to home buying but we were also moving 4 states away to South Carolina. We wanted to find the best of the best, a realtor one can trust. Chris took us under her wing, checked every single box imaginable. She was extremely helpful, open, transparent, HARDWORKING, and reliable through the whole process, she really cared about us, understood our needs from the very first house viewing. She always made time for us, even helped with sleeping arrangements when we would find a few days open in our schedule to come down to view homes. Their were many obstacles that popped up during our first home buying process. Chris worked endlessly for months, was always so positive, and in the end helped us finally find our DREAM HOME! We were so lucky to find such a excellent realtor, I wouldn’t work with anyone else. Not only did we gain a house, we also gained a lifelong friend."

"Chris IS amazing! Not only did we find the perfect realtor, but we also have a new best friend for life in SC. Chris guided us through the purchase of our retirement home with her extensive knowledge and experience in the local market including but not limited to the due diligence process, contractual obligations and legal ramifications and provided excellent recommendations for local reputable contractors. Needless to say, there were challenges we had to face, for which Chris was available 24/7 to get things accomplished. Chris has a wide range on individuals, contractors and businesses loyal to her and on whom she relies to make selling and buying properties for her clients the best it can be!Her new venture with Exp will not only guide her in furthering her personal dreams but also provide an incomparable realty experience for her clients."

"I have worked with a plethora of agents from Hawaii to South Carolina. I also spent some time (very little) in the industry. I am typically skeptical of any new business relationships for some time before becoming loyal. Kim and I are so impressed with Chris. She is a mile ahead of the pack in terms of sincerity, ethics and professionalism. I would use Chris again."

"Chris is extremely knowledgeable of residential properties in the Charleston area. She was very patient with us, showing us homes for sale in our price range in different parts of the metro region. We made several trips to Charleston to help us narrow our preferences. When we found a home that met our needs, Chris was a very skilled advisor and negotiator on our behalf. We have recommended Chris to several people. She is the consummate professional in the Charleston residential real estate market."
