Chris and Jim make a great team. They take personal service to a new "higher level" standard, which is rarely seen in todays market place.

We know that Chris and Jim are the Realtor Experts for the Long Beach Market. We met them when we purchased our home in Bixby Village in 2013. So in 2020 when we wanted to sell our home and find a new home in Long Beach we called Chris and Jim to find a new home for us and to sell our home. They bring exceptional knowledge of the Long Beach market and a strong professional approach with great marketing and a commitment to help their clients. They did a great job of helping us to find a perfect home and sell our previous house. They are committed to their clients and are well know in Long Beach as the 'go to experts'. We could not be more happy with our outcome on both the sale of our house and the purchase of another - thanks to Chris Italiano !
I will only use Chris and Jim Italiano as my agents whether I'm purchasing or selling. I've actually used them for both! They partnered with me and guided me through each step and were quick to reply to any questions or concerns I had. After I had moved out and the house was still in escrow, they frequently checked in on the property for me and even reached out to let me know I had a Fedex delivery waiting for me. This is a difficult time for many of us and I wasn't sure how safe it would be to sell my house. Chris and Jim reassured me. Only pre-approved buyers were permitted to tour the house. They had to wear masks and gloves. Realtors and buyers had to follow strict protocols. I was able to vacate the house during such tours. Chris hired a very talented photographer who created a beautiful virtual tour of my entire home. It made a very positive impact. Thanks to the efforts of Chris and Jim, I received a full-price offer in 2 days. Honestly they made the entire process quick and painless. Chris and Jim have become more than just my agents. They are now dear friends.

Chris is amazing! We were first-time home buyers and she managed to make this a smooth process. Extremely thorough. I absolutely recommend Chris and Jim Italiano.
My most recent real estate acquisition involved using the services of Chris Italiano for the third time. I am a Physician so my time is limited and valuable. Chris lasered into properties that met my desires with good research and recommendations very quickly. She professionally negotiated with the seller to make the sale go my way in a very competitive market where multiple offers were in place. In every phase of the acquisition, Chris went above and beyond all of my expectations. Even during the Covid-19 crisis she handled the final walk through inspection with a N-95 mask on her face and a camera in her hand. And you not only get Chris. You also get her partner and mate, Jim Italiano. It's like getting two professionals with decades of experience for the price of one! The Italiano's have my highest recommendation and thanks.

My husband and I had been researching realestate in a particular area for quite a while. We approached Chris Italiano after speaking to several residents that were unanimous in their enthusiasm for her. We met with Chris and her husband Jim the following day. They gave us an in depth perspective of the area and the inner workings of an HOA. We found them personable and professional. We are happy to say we are closing tomorrow on the soon to be the perfect home. Thank you so much , Chris and Jim. You're a great team. Paul and Kathy D

Let me start out by saying my wife and I have bought and sold numerous residences over the years, including one in the Washington, DC area. While there I adopted a suggestion by Robert Bruss, a Washington Post Real Estate columnist, to interview three realtors before selecting one to list your house with. But, after listening to Chris and Jim's presentation, the first ones we interviewed, we were sold. They were very thorough with comps, steps we should take to prepare our house for sale, and a timeline. They said, if we wanted, they could take care of everything: house and carpet cleaning, windows washed, gardening, staging, and having an open house. We agreed and after the first open house, we had two offers. We negotiated with one and settled on a price within days. Chris and Jim then worked with us throughout the Escrow process including filling out all the associated paperwork. Needless to say, we appreciate their efforts and recommend them highly.

We had an amazing experience using Chris and Jim Italiano. They were extremely professional from start to finish. They were able to sell our home, quickly and for the highest per square foot price in our community. We would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to all our friends.
I couldn't have asked for anything more ! The house later for MUCH MORE than I had hoped and it sold in 2 days.
Chris and Jim were excellent to work with. Their responsiveness, attentiveness, and guidance throughout this process made it utterly painless. This was our first time buying a home, and we needed some serious hand-holding. The Italianos were more than happy to walk us through any questions we had and provide their expert guidance. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the Long Beach area.
