We have worked with Chris and Tracy for 3 years now. They have sold two homes for us and helped us purchase our current house. You couldn’t ask for better partners to assist with your real estate needs. They are professional, hardworking and always have your best interests in mind. Tracy’s staging ability is top notch and Chris is an excellent negotiator. They give you the straight facts and work with you to make things happen. We highly recommend them. They are truly the best!

We hear a lot in the real estate world of ‘team’ this and ‘team’ that. When it comes to integrity, professional skills, and the personal touch of this commendable partnership Chris Swim and Tracy Keaton are without peer. Chris and Tracy run what I would call a ‘Full Service Operation’. From sales to staging, yard clearance to painting, marketing and meeting with clients, they do it all in a heartbeat for their clients, saving them time, money, energy and stress. Chris and Tracy ‘got it done’ with their blend of pragmatic business sense, personal affability, and aesthetic sensibilities. When I had questions or qualms about the market or property, Chris was a learned and respected confidant. Chris and Tracy came highly recommended from a friend whose house they sold in a down market for an upwards price. I could not have made a better choice. Skilled, resourceful and forthright, they are as good as it gets, and they are far and away my top picks as professionals I will do business with again.

Chris is a true professional. Experienced, knowledgeable and reliable. He manages the big picture and all the details. One of the best negotiators in the business!

Chris is a true professional who helped my family successfully relocate to Orinda from Seattle, WA. He and his partner, Tracy Keaton, provided personal attention to the details surrounding our home search and purchase. As a busy executive with a demanding new job, I needed a professional I could turn to with full confidence and trust to manage the most important decision in our move: buying a new home. I can say with confidence that we actually found our dream home, and without Chris and Tracy I’m not sure it would have happened. Chris and his team were exceptionally trustworthy, knowledgeable, and accessible in helping our journey to buy a home. I definitely recommend Chris Swim and his team to anyone buying or selling a home in the East Bay.

My wife and I hired Chris when we were relocating from out of state. We were immediately impressed by his knowledge of the Lamorinda community and the highly competitive real estate market. We were even more impressed that he also that he took the time to get to know our family and find us a property that ultimately we would be happy in for years to come. On a personal level you couldn’t find a more trustworthy individual and a man of very high principals. These things coupled with his superior negotiating skills and attention to detail is why I wouldn’t think of working with any other real estate agent.
