Chris and Linda made the selling of our old home and the purchase of our new home very easy.

Gregory & Susan Y.

Best Real Estate Agents EVER!

After 4 years and as many agents we finally found the Mother-Son team of Chris Strain and Linda Strain with RE/MAX of Reading. Chris worked closely with us and although I am sure he is busy with other clients he always made us feel like we were top priority. We saw tons of houses and never felt pressured or rushed.

Chris and Linda were extremely helpful with the buying process.

I am a first time homebuyer and knew absolutely nothing about buying a house. I asked a million questions and not once did they ever get frustrated with me. Chris’s background in construction and carpentry showed when we were walking through each house. He would point out imperfections and explain in detail how they may have been caused and how to fix them. I never felt like he was trying to just get a sale from me. He made sure I got the right home and I will definitely use Chris and Linda for any future home purchases in Berks county!! Chris did an amazing job helping me find the perfect first home. As it was my first time purchasing a home, Chris walked me through each step and answered hundreds of questions at anytime in the day. His experience in carpentry and real estate makes him a great resource when trying to find a new home. I will absolutely be going to Chris when I am ready to move. Highly recommend!!

Robert & Patricia L.

During the sale of my first home and purchase of my second (current) home, Chris was available whenever I had a question or wanted to look at a potential home.

He provided expert advice on not only the process of buying and selling a home, but also shared his experience with home construction, neighborhood dynamics, and school district information. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Berks County, as well as the surrounding area.

Chris Strain was my primary realtor and Linda filled in for Chris when time constraints were an issue.

I was extremely satisfied with my home buying experience and I believe I found the perfect home. Chris and Linda were respectful, responsive to my requests and professional in every respect. Chris not only showed me the good points of prospective houses on the market, he also advised me what to be wary of and to stay away from. In working with other realtors over the years, I found that they only wanted to talk about the good points of a property but not advise you of the possible drawbacks. Chris did both and I felt he truly had my best interests in mind when looking for a home. I would highly recommend Chris or Linda Strain to any prospective home buyer. Top notch.

Greg M.

Chris was very knowledgeable and helpful as we were buying our house in Exeter Township.

He made us feel comfortable and answered all of our questions. This was our first time buying, and we were nervous but with Chris it was easy and we love our house and our neighborhood.

S. G.

When I contacted Linda and Chris, my home had been on the market with another agent for 229 days.

During those 229 days, I had 3 individuals come through my home. Those 3 individuals only came through the home due to an open house that was held by the realtor at that time. Because of my personal situation, it was important to get my house sold and get my house sold quickly. Obviously, that wasn't happening. I reached out to Linda and Chris for two reasons. First, I had graduated high school with Chris. I knew he was a good guy. The other reason, and the more important reason, was because of their reputation in Berks County. After speaking with both Linda and Chris, I was so excited to make the change in realtors. From the moment I first spoke with them, they were nothing less than impressive! And they got the job done!!! I listed my property with them on February 6, 2012 and my sale of my home was settled on March 28, 2012. Although I am currently renting, I know that when I'm ready to purchase another home, Linda and Chris will be the first ones that I reach out to! You both are wonderful. It was such a pleasure working with you!

Chris Strain was an amazing realtor from start to finish.

He is as down to earth as he is knowledgable and prompt in his attention, especially to first home buyers. Chris was able to lead us out of what would have been a disastrous sale and to a house that truly is our dream house. Chris's knowledge of numerous areas related to home buying is exceptional, and Chris made us feel right at home from the minute we met him. Our most heartfelt thanks to Chris. We have been in our home for one week and walk around wondering how we got THIS lucky. Thank you Chris!

John & Heidi S.

Chris and Linda Strain made the home buying process a great experience for us!

Chris is incredibly knowledgeable, and his expertise about the area put us at ease when we viewed listings and visited properties. I knew I could ask any question and Chris would know the answer! I'm a nervous person by nature, but Chris did a great job explaining everything and getting back to us quickly which made me feel very comfortable and confident that we would find our dream home (and we did). I will absolutely recommend Chris and Linda Strain to all of my friends and family!

Cindy K.

I highly recommend Chris Strain if you are in the market for a realtor!

Chris took my husband and I on multiple house tours during our search and worked with us as we tossed around all of our thoughts on each one. He was also always very upfront with us about the pros and cons he saw, which was very important to us while we made our decision. By the time we finally found the one I loved, we were in a time crunch and Chris went above and beyond to assure the home was in the school district we wanted and that our offer was accepted without a lot of the normal back and forth. Years later and every time I get an itch to move again, he is always ready with listings and showings. I cannot recommend Chris enough.

Amanda E.

Working with Chris, Linda and Katy was an absolute pleasure.

They were so patient with us and knew exactly what we wanted and needed. They helped make a very hectic process as easy going as possible. They were so attentive and responsive to our needs and were always available for any questions we had. They are extremely family oriented which we loved. We are forever grateful. I Would definitely recommend working with them for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"So as a First-Time buyer I knew the process could be quite extensive and scary. I'm not the best when it comes to getting everything done on time, and as I was buying the house by myself, the process seemed more daunting. But Chris was amazing in helping me through it all and found some great houses to look at in the areas I was asking for. We got tours at the times I needed for my work schedule and saw some properties before they officially listed. In this market, that was a huge help. Chris was able to get paperwork changed around and helped get an inspection while my offer was being waitlisted. He also helped get me in touch with a lender who proved to be incredibly responsive and helpful. Chris got the appointment set up for the title company and everything was incredibly smooth for me. I would highly recommend Chris if you're looking for a new home, and don't be scared to reach out if you're a First-Time homebuyer too!"
