Owner / Broker
With over 17 years experience as a residential real estate agent / owner of RE/MAX Revealty, I have experienced the highs and lows in the real estate market for Central Ohio. It goes without saying, today’s market is much more dynamic and challenging compared to years past. As technology transforms the way the Realtors do business, keeping up with the latest trends is extremely important. My philosophy in real estate is to always put the client’s best interest as the top priority, not the commission.
What is most important to me
My overall goal is to be known as a valuable resource for anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a new or existing home. By educating clients and giving them options, they can make informed decisions without being pressured or sold to.
What I am about:
Buying a home is a monumental event in your life and you want to choose your agent carefully, rather than just ending up with someone. Most people have trust issues with agents as they are kept in the dark wondering what is really going on with their transaction. By revealing all the details, (good and bad) I am able to have a working relationship with clients that is more of a partnership. This no nonsense approach to buying and selling real estate allows clients to feel educated and informed and eliminates the sales tactics. There is no “one size fits all” approach to selling real estate. Every transaction and situation is unique, so knowing when to push and when to back off is extremely important.

Chris was wonderful to work with on the purchase of our new home. He was very prompt with all communications and also during the process of paperwork exchange during the purchase. He was knowledgeable about the area, home values, and general scope of work needed for repairs. Mary and I felt very comfortable working with Chris and would highly recommend him to anyone. We are very satisfied.Ryan and Mary
Chris is fantastic! I have used Chris to purchase two homes and have recommended him to many friends. He is extremely knowledgeable on all matters of real estate transactions, very familiar with Columbus and surrounding areas and does not make you feel pressured in any way to make hasty decisions. He was super helpful from start to finish and gave great advice and comments on all the properties we viewed. I would highly recommend him to anyone even considering buying a home, no matter if it is your first home or your dream home!John

Chris Harpster is a pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and an good negotiator. He is also incredibly patient. He has an honest and down to earth attitude and is great at keeping clients informed. I used his services both to buy and sell a property recently and the results were excellent.

Chris gain my trust and confidence very early in the process and not once did he let me down. I felt he had my best interest at heart and trusted his recommendations and advice. He was very responsive and answer all my questions. Chris is a real expert in the real state field!!Virginia
Great agent! Absolutely the best; knowledgeable; thorough and courteous. Chris listens to your needs and while providing opinion and guidance does not impose his will on your decision. I really liked that he worked to accomplish what we wanted without any pressure or the feeling that he just wanted to sell the real estate.Tony
Chris was very helpful in the process of looking for a home within our budget. He was helpful in giving us the positives and negatives on buying an older home versus a newer home. We settled on a place in town and Chris was able to negotiate it to keep it in our budget. Chris was ALWAYS very prompt at responding to any questions we had along the way. Near the end of the process he helped to get us the best deal at closing and also to keep the lenders and the seller’s realtor on schedule. We would highly recommend Chris for any property searches in the Columbus area and will definitely use his services again if we should ever need to move again.Casey and Miranda
Chris Harpster is an excellent person to help people buy or sell a home. He was very professional, kind and patient, walking us through the complete process of buying and selling our home. Chris stayed in constant contact with us at all times and went out of his way to take care of business! He really went above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend his service and dedication to helping his customers. Thank you Chris!!Patsy
I cannot imagine working with a better real estate agent than Chris. As a first time home buyer, we were nervous and had a lot of questions! Chris’s thoroughness, responsiveness, honesty and guidance made the home buying process easy and fun! Chris’s attention to detail is astounding. When attending showings, he would educate us on what red flags to look for on a property, what positives to look at, and he truly helped us develop our vision for what we really wanted in our home with our budget. We were also so appreciative that Chris never put an ounce of pressure on us to make a decision about purchasing a home. It was very evident that Chris always had our best interest in mind. Chris’s years of experience would be valuable to anyone looking to purchase a home, and I truly cannot imagine working with anyone else besides him! We are looking forward to moving into our new home that was purchased under asking price (thanks, Chris!), but down the road when we need a realtor again, Chris will be our first call!Emily
Chris made this process very easy for us. He was very quick with getting us in to homes we wanted to see. He is very knowledgeable about Columbus and the surrounding areas. Chris was able to help us find the perfect location and home for our budget.Ariel
