Client Testimonials | The Grider Home Group
Grider Home Group

*If you're considering listing your home and want to get it SOLD, I recommend the Grider Home Group!  They are true professionals with excellent communication skills and will give 110% dedication to getting your property sold.  Their business knowledge and people skills allow them to know just what to say to prospective buyers or when negotiating the sale.  Whenever questions or issues came up they responded quickly with a phone call, email or text.  After the contract was signed, my home inspection found that the roof needed to be replaced.  They went "above and beyond" their role and met with three different roofing companies at my house while I was working.  Their "do whatever it takes" position to work through this issue allowed the sale to be completed.  I would definitely recommend the Grider Home Group to anyone I know wanting to sell their house.

Mary Hayes~Lee's Summit, MO

*From the first meeting Chris was a delight. Positive and polished, his attention to detail and the marketing plan he proposed made us feel secure the job at hand would be accomplished.  Not only did he just assure us he would do everything he could do to get our home sold, he got the job done~despite the poor real estate economy. Chris was always available with timely responses to our questions.  Always a professional is manner and dress, Chris is also a gentleman.  His many acts of kindness and help, above and beyond the sale of our home, will be remembered.  And although we have left the Lee’s Summit area, we still have told many friends of his positive approach and will recommend him to anyone needing a top-notch Realtor.


Norm & Pam Faustlin~Lee’s Summit (FL relocated!)

*We hired the Grider Home Group of Reece & Nichols after our custom-built Lee’s Summit house sat on the market with a different realtor agency for nine months.  It was the initiative and dynamic “go getter” attitude that sold us on hiring the Grider Group to sell our house.  They listened to our needs and truly made us feel like they were our genuine partner to accomplish our goals.  Their professionalism and determination to expose our house captured the perfect buyer, not to mention all the above-and-beyond efforts they made since we already relocated to the St. Louis area.  To this day, we still can’t help but think how much money we could have saved if we had hired them in the first place.  Choosing the right Realtor does make all the difference in the world when selling your home, we are living proof.


Dave & Shelley Powell~O’Fallon, MO


*Grider Home Group sold our house in 8 days!  At this time in the market, that is truly amazing. Working with them made buying and selling our homes an enjoyable experience.  We recommend this professional team to everyone.


Chris & Mindy Hall~Lee’s Summit, MO

*My husband and I are completely happy with our choice to use the Grider Home Group as our realtors for buying our new home and selling our past one.  They are professional, honest, and knowledgeable; most of all, they are accessible.  We had more questions and issues than most buyers/sellers, and they were always a phone call, email, or text message away and were willing to go an extra step to make sure our issues were handled and our concerns relieved.  Before we put our house on the market, the Grider Home Group created a booklet for us with the homes that had sold in our neighborhood as well as those currently on the market with complete information about each, including days on the market and price.  This information was so helpful for us to work with them on determining the asking price for our house.  We had an offer on our house within a week, so we believe we made a good choice!  All the agents who showed our house within that week were from Reece and Nichols because of the system they have in place to share information quickly among their realtors.  The technology available to us was so helpful: their website allowed us to view lists of past and future showings of our house as well as feedback from realtors who showed it. 

We received phone calls and emails when a new showing was scheduled, allowing us more time to prepare.  We highly recommend Grider Home Group with Reece and Nichols, whether you are buying or selling (or both).  They will work for your best interests throughout the whole process.


Cathy & Dave Sheridan~Lee's Summit, MO


*We wanted to extend a big THANK YOU to Chris for all your help!  The real estate process probably never turns out 100% as one would expect and certainly has its bumps and bruises.  While there are several things we have learned valuable lessons on, when we step back and look at the transaction as a whole we are thrilled at the final outcome.  We sincerely appreciate all the time you spent on the sale of our home and all the scenarios that were considered to make the sale successful.  We hope to recommend you to many folks in the future and wish you both all the best!


Mark & Katrina Bonds~Olathe, KS


* Thanks for all of your assistance with selling our old home and buying this one. We couldn't be more pleased with you guys! To that end, I recently fielded a telephone survey call for an upcoming edition of a KC Magazine that is going to be featuring real estate agents and mortgage folks and I gave you and Chris the highest marks possible.


Gary & Danielle Gose~Lee’s Summit, MO


The dust has all settled and the payments are all made so it is time to thank you for everything you did to help us sell our house. You and your team always dealt with Gina and I with fantastic customer service. I greatly appreciate all of the extra effort you personally provided and direction in helping to getting our house sold. I always recommend you to anyone who I know selling or buying in the KC area. If you ever need a personal or professional reference please let me know.  

Bill & Gina Oberkramer

*My wife and I were looking to purchase a home where our kids could grow up and where we could settle down. Chris was very knowledgeable about the different areas of Lee's Summit. We liked how he listened to what we were looking for and he found places that fit our criteria. We appreciated how he provided us with good information, but did not do it in a high pressure type of way. Chris was very easy to talk with and very quick to get back with us when we had questions. We loved working with him. Our home buying experience was great because of Chris

William & Marcella Briggs, Lee’s Summit, MO

*I found Chris Grider through the Dave Ramsey ELP program. Chris was one of three ELP's in the area, and out of the three was the one that seemed to want to help me sell my home the most. I'd recommend Chris becuase he was everything "Dave" says his endorsed providers are; high octane, knowledgable, and great at getting the seller/buyer the best deal for their money. (I was a seller.) Chris has a strong sense of urgency to get the deal closed at the right price, and even helped me find solid subcontractors in the area to aid in getting my investment property ready for sale."G

Chad Peed

*I really appreciate all of Chris Grider's effort in selling my mother's house. He always kept me informed of progress with prospective buyers, offered his opinion on certain stiuations, made himself available to let the contractor in when I was not around, explained everything to me, gave me options so I could make informed decisions, and always answered my questions satisfactorily. Chris made it much easier for me to handle a difficult situation. I feel very fortunate to have found him to help us sell our mother's house. "

Nancy Ann Emanuelle, Kansas City, MO

*Chris Grider is a great agent. Even if his primary area is not the area you are looking to sell or buy, he will educate himself in your area and be very efficient and effective in completing the sale. Chris is very professional and approachable, and will listen to your needs and desires. Chris goes above his line of duty to help you with selling your home or buying another and also with everything else that comes along (movers, remodeling, mortgage companies, insurance, etc). We have been very pleased with everyone and everything he has recommended for us. Lastly, we have been very satisfied with everything Chris Grider did for us (we sold a house and bought another) and we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell and/or buy a house. He gets highest marks on everything.

Howard & Cynthia Petrie, Kansas City, MO

*I was quite impressed with Chris Grider's accessibility. He was available all hours of the day by text and was exceptionally efficient in working through the negotiations with the other party. His contacts in the trades professions helped save us money in inspection-related repairs and his access to the shared courtesy moving van helped save us money on moving expenses. My wife and I found Chris to be personable and never pushy.

Brian & Ellen Whitley, Raintree Lake 

*Chris was great in every aspect of my purchase and transaction of this property. I do not believe i could have had anyone with more knowledge or experience to help me locate the exact property that I was searching for. Chris went out of his way to help me, time after time and constantly kept me abreast of different properties as they became available and either took me to see each one or met me at an appointed time. I would use Chris and his services again without a thought and recommend him to anyone I know is interested in any property!

Thomas Murdock, Lee's Summit, MO

*Chris was great to work with! He called within hours of submitting an online request for information, he had a thorough plan to sell our house put together and was ready to meet with us the next day. His enthusiasm and confidence in his ability to sell our house is what convinced us to hire him over other agents we interviewed. Chris was never pushy, always informative and willing to sit with us and answer questions. He walked us through the whole process and ended up selling our house in a little over a month for a price higher than other agents told us to list. We are so happy we found Chris and look forward to working with him again in the future!

Gregory & Brittany Mathews

*From start to finish Chris was able to build and execute a strong sales plan. We never waited more than a day for a call back. Chris is open to manage the sale as you need but provides his expertise to help the seller make the right decision.  This is the fourth transaction he has helped us conduct.

Regina Morris

*We're a repeat customer for Chris. He'd sold our home in Lee's Summit & then helped us purchase our new home when we relocated back to the Kansas City area from the East Coast.
Chris was there for us at every step in the process. Always responsive & proactive to our questions, concerns & throughout the negotiation process. Chris made the entire buying process as easy as he had the sale of our previous home.  We would definitely recommend Chris to our family & friends.

Mark & Susanne Tribble

*Chris is amazing. We are out of state buyers and he has gone above and beyond to help us buy our investment properties.  We will use him in the future.  Chris is great-very timely and on top of every detail.  We trusted Chris to check out a home for us-we bought without ever seeing the property in person. He has been very helpful in getting our investment portfolio started.

Darin & Erin Glenn

*Chris took to heart that we had found our dream home and did everything to help us secure it! He is a true professional! Chris was always accessible and communicated often in a timely manner. He made sound professional recommendations and really made us feel like he had our best interest at heart! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris!

Brandon & Shelley Edington

*Chris Grider has been such a pleasure to work with. He has exceeded all expectations with the sale of our house and purchase of our new house.  Even after closing he has stayed in touch and been helpful with followups with builder.  So thankful we used Chris, the whole process has been as stress free as possible for moving.

Ryan & Gretchen Doyle

*My fiancée and I have used Chris Grider as our broker in the past. He is quick to respond to questions and knowledgeable about current market conditions.  He was there with us every step of the way through the process which helped us feel very comfortable. Chris is very professional and helpful in every interaction.  We highly recommend Chris to our family and friends! He really knows what we want and care about in a home.

Marcia Drake

​*I have bought or sold a total of 10 homes in my lifetime. My experience with Chris Grider surpasses any other. I would highly recommend Chris.

Linda Hadel

*Chris Grider is helpful, knowledgeable and listens to our concerns. He helped us through every step of our home purchase and now with the listing and selling of our previous home.  My husband and I are entirely pleased.

Gary & Marilyn Moore

*Chris Grider was referred to me by a friend. Chris was very responsive and listened to my sale goals. He was very easy to communicate with and I felt he was always available for any questions I may have had. He also came over to meet with me on holiday weekends when we were at the property to discuss the sale process, which I appreciated greatly since we do not live in the same city. I feel the sale was a huge success and I will be referring Chris to others in the future.

Kathryn Propst

*Chris helped us when we were looking for our current house. He knew, at that time, we were looking for something very specific but we wouldn't know it until we saw it. He was very patient with us in the search. then when we finally found it, the seller decided to change their mind and didn't want to sell. We were going to hold them to the contract. So Chris had a lot of extra work to do on that and he did great! We used him to sell the house we moved out of. He was very patient with us because it took us much longer than we planned to have it ready to sell. He was also very knowledgeable on the market in that area so he helped us set our selling price which was higher than we were expecting. We will be recommending Chris to anyone I know that is wanting to sell a house in the KC Metra area.
