Washbern Real Estate Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We are so thankful to have had Nicola to guide us through the home selling AND buying journey!

!! It was quite an adventure and she never gave up, even when we were ready to. Her professionalism throughout the process was remarkable. Her willingness to tour multiple houses, trying to find “the one”, was very much appreciated. We would highly recommend Nicola, and her team, when you are ready to sell and/or buy!!

Ryan & Anne

Chris surprised us with his level-headed, measured insight and individual care.

He was available and willing to talk us through anything with expert opinion, and he helped us feel confident and successful through the emotional and stressful experience of selling our first home and buying another. He was on the ball at every turn, ensuring every T was crossed ahead of schedule and we knew what steps lay ahead. In short, Chris was an incredible agent to work with, and we would give his name to any friend or family member.

Hillary & Todd

I just recently moved to Kitsap county and Chris was very knowledgeable about the area.

He was also helpful throughout the entire home buying process. I would recommend him to anyone who is trying to find a new home.


In the current market, it is REALLY hard to find a house.

We looked for quite a while to find a house that would suit the needs of our family and budget. Many times we were outbid by cash offers including the house we eventually got. Our realtor Nicola Chamness stood by us and thankfully so. We got our dream house!


Chris was amazing.

He was attentive, did thorough walk-throughs of properties and took video, and listened. I was from searching to buying a home in under a month!


Chris represented our son and his wife in purchasing their first home.

We were extremely impressed with Chris’s professionalism, enthusiasm, courtesy and my husband and I wound up retaining him on the recent sale of our homes and purchasing another. He’s awesome.

Debbie & Joe

Chris bent of backwards and went out of his way to find us a home, get questions answered about the home, and get us closed.

He knew all the right people to help get stuff done and always kept in contact with us keeping us up to date of what the current status was. We are keeping his card and recommending him for to our friends and family.

Brittany & Rob

I've had the pleasure of working with Washbern for a handful of real estate transactions and they always provide the highest levels of customer service as well as honest feedback.

Would recommend for any home buyer.


One of the best realtors I’ve worked with.


The early bird gets the worm!

" Which is crucial in the current market. Chris went out of his way to contact the listing broker on the dream property my husband and I now own when the property was pending to another buyer. My husband I were already courting another broker who didn't seem too concerned about the fact that OUR dream property was pending sale to someone else... Despite the other brokers dismissive attitude I couldn't ignore my gut.... That property was meant to be mine, so posted a desperate plea online late one night stating that if for any reason the property sale faltered my husband and I were anxiously waiting in the wings ready to pounce... Chris saw my plea and went out on a limb and contacted the listing broker despite the fact that it was a complete long shot. Turns out the interested buyers were not prepared to purchase land and were planning to walk away from the deal. Chris contacted me and let me know that the property would be back on the market soon. His heads up gave us the ability to get our finances ready so we could put an offer in first. The rest is history. Additionally, Chris is a straight shooter. He has been honest with my husband and I about our current property. He is offering advice that serves our best interests and not his immediate interests. Finally his partner, Spencer, is well versed in the laws current and proposed that effect land development so I feel safer having purchased my land through them.

Audrey & Thomas

Chris sold our home in Port Orchard, WA.

He was recommended by our neighbors, and we were very happy we took their advice! He is pleasant to work with and walked us through every step of the process. Chris is clearly very knowledgeable about the market and did an expert job presenting and marketing the home. We are certain he obtained the best price for our home and would highly

Chuck & Beth

My wife and I contacted Christopher and Spencer from a recommendation of our friends.

We worked mostly with Chris. Without any hesitation I would recommend this team to anyone thinking of selling their home. Christopher was there for us all the way and worked out negotiations and problems. We received a full price offer the first day on market. I give 5 of 5 Stars for this real estate team.

Bill & Hailey

What sets Chris apart from all others is his quiet competence.

He examined the situation and provided recommendations and alternatives. He has contacts among the trades and was able to effect unforeseen repairs (all minor) quickly and inexpensively. We always felt that we were in control with Chris as the consultant. He was always available to answer our questions. He followed up and kept us informed during the entire process. We especially appreciate that he did not glad-hand us and inflate the asking price of the property as two other realtors did. We received three offers within a couple of days for more than the asking price. Chris is a quiet, competent professional. He understands the local market. We highly recommend him.


We have had multiple great experiences working with Chris O.

And company!

Melissa & Morgan
