Christopher Holt - Owner/Realtor®
Owner and Realtor® at Iron Valley Real Estate of Exton, SRES, husband, musician, community educator for the Alzheimer’s Association, fitness and outdoor enthusiast. My motto is live, love, laugh…repeat! My mission is to give you exceptional customer service whether you are buying or selling a home. The Chris Holt team is a small team with a laser focus on the overall outcome for you and your family. When selling, this almost always means getting you the most money for your home with the least amount of hassle. If you are buying, the goal is to help you find your dream home in what can be a challenging market. Our strengths lie in marketing, strategy and negotiation to achieve the best outcomes for our clients. I do not get the contract signed and hand you off to an admin; when you work with me, I am your only phone call. My clients say what they love about working with me is my optimism, persistence, can-do attitude, and high level of fiduciary responsibility.
As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) I am doubly skilled in helping seniors who need to sell a home. Many families are forced to sell their home or their parents’ home to help pay for assisted living. I empathize with this extremely difficult process. Having worked in senior care for over a decade, I have helped families navigate the extremely difficult scenario of selling a home while transitioning into the senior care world. It takes a balance of compassion, patience, and true market knowledge. I am known as the "Go-to Guy" if you are looking for a recommendation for senior care services. As a 6-year board member for the Caregivers Association of Chester County, I have direct access to over 250 vetted senior care professionals. These resources can be invaluable when selling your home and making this transition.
I am passionate about helping seniors but remember I can help anyone BUY or SELL a home, and I’d love the opportunity to work with you!
What people say about me:
Client Ana-Phoenixville PA - "Christopher… I've said it to you many times, but this experience was super easy and super fun with you. Buying a house again on my own was a nerve-wracking idea when I first started to think about it. You have been a tremendous friend ridiculously responsive and supportive and such the ultimate professional. You inspired deep confidence and trust that making decisions was easy-peasy. Oh, and we did it all in the midst of a pesky global pandemic."
Clients Scott and Shari- Phoenixville PA- "I cannot say enough good things about our realtor, Chris Holt. We had some very specific criteria for our home search that were a bit out of the norm (an in-law suite with walkout access) but Chris helped us hone in on great options. Chris was extremely helpful, patient, and fun to work with as we looked at a ton of houses. I highly recommend Chris Holt for your home sale or purchase needs!"
