Chris Coté

"Chris is perhaps the most attentive, caring real estate broker I've ever encountered. I cannot recommend him highly enough." - Lisa M.

I spent 20 years in chief executive roles in non-profits serving families and communities prior to focusing on real estate as a full-time career. Between this experience, and that gained while buying and selling personal and rental properties of my own in the suburbs of Dallas and Detroit before making the Denver area my forever home, I am uniquely equipped to help you find not just a home—but a community that will allow you to thrive.

My greatest satisfaction is when my clients rave about my service (my Above and Beyond Award for routinely surpassing clients' expectations is a treasured accomplishment). "Dialed-in on the data," "super savvy," "flawless execution," and "fabulous communicator" are themes frequently mentioned by clients. My very favorite feedback is when I hear that, besides having helped them be successful, they had fun. My goal with a client is to help them be so wildly successful and pleased with the experience, that I'm their real estate guy for life—more than that, that they can't shut-up about me to friends! Anything less and I haven't met my own goal.  

My family is firmly rooted in Castle Rock. My wife, Cami, is an R.N. for Kaiser Permanente. Both daughters play for The Rapids competitive travel soccer club and fight to take our Jack Russell Terrier "Duke" to the dog park. Ayanna goes to Douglas County High School. Aryssa attends Mesa Middle School. I'm deeply involved in town government, serving as a Planning Commissioner after previously chairing the Public Safety Commission. I'm also very involved with Greenhouse Scholars—most significantly as a mentor.    We love being a part of this community in this beautiful place! I assist clients predominantly in the South Metro Denver Area, frequently in Castle Rock, and am the Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite (again) in Terrain where I work as the expert in my own "backyard!" If you have goals involving real estate, I welcome the opportunity to interview for your trust and business.

Chris was open, honest, supportive and fun to work with during a long and stressful process in the sale of our home. His experience, advice and responsiveness was excellent. I would strongly recommend utilizing Chris to anyone who is looking for Real Estate support.

Chris is perhaps the most attentive, caring real estate broker I've ever encountered. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He will take the time to get to know you and your needs, and work tirelessly to meet those needs until he has found the home for you that fits.

Chris is genuine. Haven't met too many people in my life that have invested in me like he has. Chris is a pleasure to work with and he really tried to step into my shoes to evaluate all the options. I'm happy to call him one of my friends.

5 stars - Highly likely to recommend

Sold a single family home in 2019 for approximately $475K in Castle Rock, CO 80108.

From our very first consultation with Chris Cote, I knew that we were going to be working with a true real estate professional. He listened to our goals and expectations with regards to selling our house and helped outline an efficient, high-tech marketing strategy and effective timeline to get our house sold. Chris provided outstanding communication and personal service throughout the entire process of listing our home. With his effective marketing plan and careful consideration to the proper listing price, Chris had our house under contract within 10 days and at 99% of our original asking price despite the slow market with similarly price homes in our area.

While under contract, Chris was there every step of the way to provide us clear options and guidance at critical decision points to keep the entire process moving forward smoothly. From start to finish, Chris was absolutely top-notch and we couldn't have asked for anything better with the sale of our home.

Chris Cote is the true definition of 'professional'. His knowledge of the real estate market, along with a honest and caring personal approach to each client's specific situations is what sets him apart from the rest of the industry. If you are looking to sell your home, Chris Cote is THE real estate agent you need to hire. From the very first consultation with him, you will quickly realize you are now working with the best!

5 stars - Highly likely to recommend

Bought a single family home in 2019 for approximately $375K in Castle Rock, CO 80104.

We wholeheartedly recommend using Chris Cote as a realtor, and are happy to share our positive experiences with Chris and his team at 8Z. We spoke with Chris several months before we actually asked him to be our agent to buy a home. Our son and daughter-in-law had used Chris to find their home in 2017, and he came highly recommended from them. They were so pleased, as first time homebuyers, that he stayed engaged and involved with them throughout the whole process, patiently answering all their questions and providing reassurance. Based on our conversation with him, Chris kept in touch with us over the next few months, sending us listings so we could fine tune where we were looking, and the type of house we were looking for. There was never any pressure to buy, and we were able to use that time to prepare financially.
Because of a family situation, we found ourselves having to purchase a home about six months earlier than planned. I called Chris, late in the evening, and asked if we could look at two houses the next day. He rearranged his schedule and made the appointments, had market and competitive data ready to share, and we made an offer within a day. It was only possible as, beyond Chris and his team, 8Z has so many incredible partners- we were approved for a mortgage over the phone and had an appointment with a home inspector the same day. Unfortunately, the inspection results were less than desired, and we opted out of the contract. The same day, we were again looking at houses with Chris. We made an offer, it was accepted, and the inspection results were acceptable. We were able to work with Dave, our mortgage broker, and change the pending mortgage to the new address, with only minor revisions necessary. From start to finish, we were able to find, not one but two homes, negotiate offers, conduct inspections, obtain financing and close on our home in just one month. Chris’s professionalism, accurate data and intuitive sense of the changing Castle Rock market, and strong negotiating skills gave us a strong, successful purchase offer, even as other competing offers were on the table. We could never have done this without Chris’ complete dedication, he treated us as if we were his only customer, he made himself available 24/7 with phone calls and texts, and he took every one of our concerns seriously and resolved them immediately. Thanks, Chris!
