Christian was the best! His time, expertise, patience, attention, communication were all perfect and we couldn't have done this without him. Charles Hobby Amelia Wilson
Christian Deckert has been a huge help to me and my family, having worked with several of us to purchase our Berkshire properties. He is easily accessible by text and prompt in getting back with answers to my inquiries. His knowledge of the area and ability to recommend local service providers makes all the difference. Would highly recommend! Annelise Merkl McCann
Christian Deckert did an excellent job! He is extremely professional, was always available, and brokered the best available outcome for us. He was always willing to provide a reasonable view and guide us in the right direction and focus us on the tasks/issues most relevant here. It was an absolute pleasure working with Christian and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone searching for an extremely hard working and professional real estate broker in the Berkshires! Ludwig Von Rigal Von Kriegsheim Hayley Von Rigal Von Kriegsheim
Our home in Great Barrington had been in our family for over sixty years. When we finally decided that we could no longer be the best stewards of the house, Christian was the only real estate professional we turned to. He had already helped us for over ten years with suggestions for improvements and the names of contractors to accomplish them, and with the information and photographs we needed to rent the house to pay for its maintenance and renovation. During the selling process, he continued to provide excellent professional advice, first and foremost pricing and negotiating. We had no sense of the monetary value of our home, only the delight and pleasure it had brought our family. Christian knew the market and appreciated the special nature of a 1920's house with river views, high ceilings, wood paneling, crystal chandeliers and fireplaces. Then, he found buyers who shared that appreciation. We will always be grateful to Christian.
I have had the pleasure of working with Christian on over 5 real estate transactions over the years. The fact that I keep going back to him speaks for itself. He is an expert at getting the deal done. He is meticulous about his listings and knows exactly what angle to take to make your property really shine. His knowledge and expertise of the Berkshire market comes through years of experience and hard work. If you want your home sold...look no further than Christian.
I have worked with Christian on 2 deals that we closed, 2019 and 2022. He is the most knowledgeable and responsive realtor I have worked with, which includes dozens of closings over multiple states. Christian is in tune with with local market and will fight to get the best deal /price possible. I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs!
Christian was recommended by a coworker a few years ago and has helped us buy and sell numerous properties. His local knowledge of property values helped us get well over market price on one of our listings. I have recommended him to my parents for their next home purchase. He's extremely friendly and very responsive to his clients.
Christian has listed and sold many of our homes. He is honest, professional and attentive. Christian has guided us in making our homes more saleable with great success. He has an eye for capturing just the right picture showcasing the special features. Highly recommend - you will be well taken care of.
Christian helped us with two transactions, both buying our home and also selling some land. In both cases, his instincts were outstanding. He has an excellent sense of the market, and his recommendations each time in the negotiations were spot on. Can't recommend Christian highly enough!
Christian came highly recommended and we learned first hand that he is not your average real estate agent. As you can see from the reviews, he has quite a skill in this field with his vast expertise and track record of selling homes quickly. Christian captured the true beauty of our home with his sharp eye for interior design and educating us on what buyers are looking for helped us sell our home in record time! We accepted an offer after only a few weeks on the market! Christian's professionalism, charm, wisdom, and work ethic allow him to stand out amongst other realtors! We are thrilled to work with him and will continue to do so in our real estate adventures!
Christian has a great understanding of the real estate market and all aspects of buying and selling homes in the Berkshires. I have bought and sold several homes in MA, CT and FL over the past 35 years and I rarely came into contact with such a detailed and conscientious Realtor who takes a lot of the guess work out of the game. We met Christian on a Christmas Eve traveling up from Litchfield Co. CT where we had recently sold a house. We were doing a 1031 so time was of the essence. We could not find anything in CT that was to our liking so we decided to extend our area of concentration. We came back up the day after Christmas and we didn't see anything that we liked. So, Christian practically pulled a great house out of his sleeve. The perfect house he found was not even on the market. Christian talked to several friends about our housing needs and his good friend, Frank, had been working in a house that had been on the market previously (it’s the country.) It was the perfect storybook antique house with 3 floors, gorgeous mature landscaping and a large enclosed square vegetable garden made of cedar wood. In the center was a beautiful, ancient apple tree. The stocked green river formed part of the boundaries. Christian did everything with finesse and experience. We all learned a lot from each other. We did renovations to much of the house and added a beautiful pool and additional landscaping. When we decided to sell the house, there was only one name to call, Christian Deckert. We actually spoke with him often about possibly selling the house as it was too large with seven bedrooms and 3 floors for two people coming up part time. As we wanted to do a tax deferment again, we were out of time when we found this house. Christian handled the sale as expertly as he handled the buying process. We spent months looking in Connecticut and Massachusetts and went into contract on one in Sharon, CT that we got all the way to almost closing on the house, when the elderly lady said no at the last minute and amazingly the same thing happened in Milton, CT where the sellers suddenly got a great offer on their apartment in NY and decided to cancel this deal. Both we had flown up for several times, both we hired real estate attorneys for contracts and paid for inspections, mortgage applications, etc. So wounded from the whole process and losing our tax deferments, we came back up to the Berkshires and Christian. He found us a nice house in Stockbridge. It had a lot of nice features but we weren’t happy with the way renovations were going and it was getting to be too much with the extensive gardens, so Christian came in and found a great buyer for the house very quickly. He handled everything with precision and a smile. We are now in Provincetown and are getting that itch. The house is being shown to select buyers by the realtors out there. It is too far from the Berkshires but Christian has helped us with some very beautiful pictures of the house that he took while staying there for a week with his family. We may end up back in the Berkshires, in a big part because Christian and Elle have become great friends. He has done everything with professionalism, honesty and ethics. We have bought and sold 7 homes in Miami and 5 houses in New England and Christian has been the top Realtor for us.
He had excellent knowledge of the area and the pricing for homes. His negotiating suggestions were very helpful in both the sale and purchase process. Phone messages and e-mails were responded to very quickly throughout the day (we were on a very compressed time schedule). Even though our purchase requirements kept changing, he diligently worked with us throughout the search. He is easy to work with and has a great sense of humor but very professional. We will definitely use him again (hopefully not too soon) and highly recommend him.
Christian kept us fully informed about every showing and gave us helpful suggestions to enhance the property's appeal to prospective buyers. He is the best real estate professional I've ever worked with!
I have worked with Christian Deckert as both buyer and seller multiple times in the Berkshires as well as Connecticut. Christian is a true professional through and through. Christian's knowledge of current market conditions and his attention to detail in every step of a real estate transaction is unmatched. From staging to listing to purchasing or selling, Christian was alway available and continuously working to make things happen; and he did! Both of my homes were sold quickly thanks to Christian! He handled my transactions with confidence and a sense of humor which was so important to me. I feel so fortunate to have connected with Christian and have had him as my realtor. I would highly highly recommend Christian to anyone who is thinking about buying or selling a home in the Berkshires or Litchfield County, Connecticut. He is an absolute gem!
Christian is the best. From the outset, he was imaginative and energetic, gave us extremely valuable suggestions on how to improve the attractiveness of our property, worked tirelessly (and with great patience despite the frustrations of the market and unserious potential buyers). He's a gem--highly recommended without qualification.
We were incredibly fortunate that a relative recommended Christian Deckert when we were trying to sell our cottage in the Berkshires. He is clearly such an honest and sincere person, we put our trust in him immediately and it only increased with time. Not only is he totally on top of what's happening in the market, he works SO hard to give you the best service. He's extremely smart and he thought and planned very creatively about our situation, consulting us every step of the way. I cannot say enough good things about this delightful person.
Though we were the buyer and Christian was officially the seller's agent, he treated us with the utmost respect and was greatly attentive to our needs. He is thorough, responsive, ethical, and concerned for all parties involved in the transaction. Beyond his professional demeanor, he is also a very pleasant and kind person to deal with.
We had our unique custom home on the market for 8 years before we met Christian. Within a month he had 5 showings, 3 interested buyers and 2 contract offers on the house. We negotiated together and closed on the sale of our home within 6 months. To increase interest in our home, Berkshire Property Agents created a drone video that was creative, beautiful and professional. As a realtor Christian was outstanding in every respect. He was flexible to our needs, friendly, welcoming, knowledgable, creative, insightful.....everything you would want in a realtor. If you have a unique property for sale, Christian Deckert is your man!
Christian is a great agent to work with because he takes the time to figure out what you are really looking for in a house. Coupled with his extensive knowledge of the area, he really helped us narrow our list of potential homes and ultimately led us to the house we ended up buying. We couldn't be more pleased working with Christian!
Christian was referred to us by friends with a summer home in the Berkshires. We worked with Christian during the 2nd half of 2015 to help us find the perfect Berkshire vacation home for our family. Not only did Christian prove to be extremely knowledgeable with the area, he also listened closely to our desires and selected a broad range of spectacular properties that met both our aesthetic and budgetary expectations. He is highly organized, thorough and extremely responsive. His expansive network of trade folk and real estate professionals in the area coupled with his great personality and flair for tasteful design made the process fun and easy. We enthusiastically would recommend Christian as THE real estate agent to work with when seeking a property in the Berkshires. We sincerely hope to maintain the friendship that evolved in the process.
Our experience with Christian Deckert was excellent from all points of view. He was very responsive to our requests and quickly understood what we were looking for. He was very efficient to organize visits and extremely helpful in the negotiation phase. He made our purchase experience much easier than we anticipated when we decided to embark in this project.
Christian represented us in buying a home. His advice was invaluable, especially in deciding how much to offer and how to negotiate a favorable price without endangering the contract. Very personable. I would engage him again without hesitation.
Christian helped us find our first home in the Berkshires!! He nailed our taste and didn't waste our time looking around at places that didn't suit what we were looking for. He helped us from start to finish and was great throughout the whole process... Thank you Christian!!
I have bought more than 40 properties around the country and Christian is one of the 2 best agents I have ever worked with. He has saved me money on the buy side and also higher sales price on the sell side. He treats my deals with the same fervor as his higher priced listings- rather remarkable trait. Always returns calls, texts in a timely manner. I am very comfortable in recommending him.
Christian assisted us in the purchase of a home in Great Barrington and in the sale of our home years later. We would highly recommend working with him as we felt well guided and supported throughout the process of seeking and buying a home as well as selling.
Christian is FANTASTIC! Christian is one of the best professionals I've ever dealt with; so on it, honest, a straight shooter and thorough. Christian was the listing agent for our house in Lenox, not the quickest selling market in the USA yet Christian maintained his enthusiasm till the right buyer came along. BPA is also a wonderful company run by the savvy Tim Lovett. Highly recommend.
We have recently sold our home with Christian. During the process from listing to selling we were never disappointed in how he handled our listing. He was always prompt, knowledgeable, and prepared with information for us and the buyers. During our negotiation period he was on vacation out of the country and responded to all of our communications immediately. He was a persistent negotiator on our behalf and always maintained a professional demeanor through the completion of the sale. We have hired him to find us a new home and continue to have a positive and enjoyable experience.
We have had nothing but great service as well as good advice and guidance from Christian. Having both a buying and selling experience with Christian, we could not be happier. Christian is attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating. All transactions generally require follow up and attention, and his diligence has resulted in successful closings. We have had four high-end house transactions with Christian, and look forward to doing future business with him. As we are 1200 miles away from Great Barrington, buying and selling requires a relationship of trust. I trust and rely on Christian.
I have used Christian's services for two property transactions in Great Barrington. He also handles all aspects of seasonal property rental for me. Very knowledgeable, easy to work with and efficient.
Christian is definitely a hard working guy...he's always there, always returns those phone calls, and he's detail oriented. He uses his imagination well, to go beyond the obvious possibilities and to get creative.
wonderfully friendly and honest man. listens and understands his client's objectives and goes for it with grace and determination. works fast and carefully and does not waste time unnecessarily which is the trait of a real pro.
