My Client Reviews
Chris checked in with me about once a month over a course of 18 months or more while we were looking for a second home. He made sure were getting emails of current listings that matched the specifications that were interested in, and always checked to see if he could do anything more for us. When we were ready to come to St. George and look at homes, he always made himself available.
Hi. Im Mark S. To me Chris is not just a real estate agent. He is my hero. I sold my house in California, so I could buy land in Utah. I was looking at various web sites. Land Watch etc. I became involved with an agent From Ceded City. To put it nicely. This did not work out . one of the local residents referred me to Chris. When we met. He said," I think this property would be right for you. He was correct! I purchased that property. As a buyer. He made my purchase worry and stress free. My Sunny Boy and I LOVE ARE NEW HOME. He's my first and BEST friend I met in Utah Keep up the good work Chris !!!!!
I have worked with many realtors in the past. Seldom have I found one that goes the extra mile. In fact only once before I met Chris. He not only worked hard to get data for us that was not provided in the listing - but he was just plain a PLEASURE to work with.
We decided to have Chris as our real estate agent because, after we contacted him about a property, he continued to email us to see if we had any questions about other properties in St. George. He was never intrusive, but available if we needed him. We appreciated his persistence and really appreciated that he contacted us via email, so as to not interrupt our busy days. The first day Chris showed us property, he spent the entire day with us. He is so knowledgeable about the area, having grown up there. The following day, he was available to take us back to two of the homes for a second viewing. We did not purchase that trip. Two months later, we returned to St. George to look at property again. Chris had the same enthusiasm and kindness as he spent the day with us. At the end of that day, we decided to make an offer on a home. The offer was accepted. Chris walked us through every step of the negotiation, and everything was done electronically, which was so convenient. Because we live 850 miles from St. George, and because we had a serious medical emergency as soon as we returned home, Chris offered to help in any way he could to lighten our load. He attended the appraisal on our behalf, he did the final walk-through on our behalf. He kept in constant touch with us every step of the way, taking care of business and checking on the well-being of our family member. Needless to say, we could not have done it without him. He is knowledgeable, professional, extremely trustworthy, kind, and fun. He typically returned our texts and calls within 10 minutes!! What more could you ask for??!! We highly recommend him!!! There may be competent real estate agents in the St. George area, but we are so thankful that we had Chris as our agent. His business partner, Tammy, also made herself available to us, if need be. Together they are a strong team. We having nothing but glowing accolades for Chris. Chris, you are the BEST!! We love you!!! R and D Russell, Florence, Montana
Chris Shurtliff is one of the best real estate agents I've ever worked with... and that's no exaggeration! This man always gives 100% and goes above and beyond all expectations. Chris worked with me in finding land in the Enterprise area. Each week we'd look at property. He would take ample time from his day to not only shown me where the properties were, but would hike them with me. We're talking 50+ acre lots over hills and steep terrain! Chis is an expert in the area and has lots of great advice and information. The property I now own and love is a direct result of Chris' hard work and dedication. A few months have passed since my purchase, and I still keep in touch with Chris. He has given me info for contractors in the area, helped me find info on getting mineral rights, Helped me get in touch with a new neighbor who may be interested in selling me some land, and overall just extremely helpful in answering questions I have. I can text Chris a question, and he always gets back to me! I met Chris by chance when I first started looking for land, and now consider him a good friend.
We found Chris to be extremely helpful in our search for a new home in Washington County. He has knowledge of the area and was willing to meet and/or take us from one end to the other to see homes that we were interested in and give us information on distances to doctors, shopping, etc. He was consistantly more than a "doorman" who simply showed up with a key and unlocked the front door to let us in. He was always well prepared to share additional information about the home. ie: power companies that serviced the area, computer reception, sewer or septic knowledge, etc. He answered both our calls and our questions without delay. We were always secure that he had our interests at the forefront of his actions. He communicated to us without using too much real estate insider jargon. We'd use him in the future and refer him to kith and kin without hesitation. I'm sure his negotiation skills are as superior as his other skills. We have not as yet purchased a home through him and so can't check that off just yet. As time and funds permit for real estate investment in the area, we will no doubt call on him to assist us.

We had such a great experience buying our home with Chris and Tammy being our agents. We will never use any other realtors.
Very very disappointed!! In the beginning communication was great! Very responsive, on top of it, great to work with.....then we signed closing documents and Chris dropped off. We relocated and bought this house without ever seeing it almost 900 miles away! Communication was absolutly vital! So we were sure surprised to learn after 2.5 days driving to our new home from the sellers that they had not signed closing documents and they would not be signing till the next day. We were left homeless with 3 grandparents, 2 kids and 2 dogs, my wife and myself. We spent the next 2 nights in a hotel. Chris's response was that Fedex didn't deliver the paperwork on time and that we should've received an email from them. Although he did reimburse us one night of hotel for just one room since "he was unaware we were bringing family to help us move." Where was my phone call to say closing documents didn't make it?! Where was my call to say we couldn't move in on the day we planned? So disappointed, we could've delayed moving for 2 days had we known that that the sellers closing was delayed, instead we had to explain to our kids why we had no house and no yard, why they couldn't go to school. We had to make a lot of calls to change service hookups for everything, what a mess! This experience has left such a bitter taste in my mouth. I wouldn't wish this stress and extra expenses of hotel and eating out on anyone.

Chris is the definition of going above and beyond! He was incredible to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone! We wouldn't have our home if it wasn't for him and our family is so grateful for what he did for us! He helped my husband with so many things in our home so that it would pass inspection. Chris is amazing!
From our very first conversation, he was not only responsive but extremely knowledgeable and helpful. If he didn't know an answer to my question, he was honest with me and got the answers and got them back to me promptly. His follow up on everything has been amazing and I look forward to working with him again in the future.
To any one looking for a great agent. I started my home search in 2015. At that time Chris called and introduced himself, (I live in VA). I was not ready to purchase a home in Utah. He asked if he could continue to contact me until I was ready for a realtor. Chris never let me down, he contacted me and stayed very well informed as to my needs. When the time came he was there to assist in any way possible. He worked hard to show me homes and to know just what I needed. He knew my personality, and just the right location for my new home. Chris chooses to work on a personal bases to meet the clients needs. He is the BEST agent I have ever worked with. He has great integrity, and will help you in any way you may need help to see that your dreams come true in purchasing a new home. You can't go wrong with Chris Shurtliff.

Thank you guys so much for all your hard work and help! You were always on top of everything and helped us so much.

We appreciate everything and all your hard work. We can't wait to be in our new home! I would recommend you two to anyone I know buying or selling a home. Thanks again, Jesse and Krystel C.
- I have grown up in Real Estate, my father was an agent for as far back as I can remember. I am dependable and hard working. I like to know how things work and why they work the way that they do. I am willing to think outside the box and accomplish the task at hand even if it is difficult to accomplish. I am caring, loving and always willing to give of my time. I have grown up in southern Utah and so I know the area very well and have always called it home.
