It was a pleasure working with Chris Hanson. He's always professional and punctual and, most importantly, can be relied on for for good, honest advice. He takes good care of his clients and we recommend him very highly!

Where to start? We were initially looking in the Hudson Valley, but not specifically Newburgh. Chris has to be one of Newburgh's strongest advocates and it wasn't long before we were sold, literally and figuratively, on living there. His knowledge of historic homes was very helpful as were familiarized ourselves with the area. There were bumps along the way–a deal where the seller decided last minute not to sell, a switch to Chris from a ethical agent from across the river, and more, and Chris handled everything in stride and helped us find a place that made sense for us. One of the qualities we most liked about working with Chris was how quickly he took in our specific wants and needs. Never did it feel like he was steering us to properties he thought were suited to us just because he knew they were for sale or because our purchase would mean a higher commission versus if we bought a better-suited, but expensive home. Thank you, Chris! noémie and andrew

Working with Chris Hanson was an absolute pleasure. His knowledge of Newburgh and Beacon and his diligence to land us the perfect home was unparalleled. Because of his tenacity we now get to wake up every morning to a breathe-taking view of the Hudson River. His insight and devotion as well as his ability to line up a number of great locations made house hunting fun and informative. Give him a shout and let him know what you're looking for. He might surprise you.

We just recently completed our third home sale/purchase transaction with Chris. He is a gem of a human, and always a pleasure to work with. Aside from making a stressful life event slightly so, we have never once worried that Chris did not have our back. He represents his clients wholeheartedly, with integrity and transparency, and will relently advocate for their best interests. Our recent sale closed for $20k above ask price, and we had an accepted offer within four days of listing - I know that he is a big part of making that happen, from solid pre-listing advice to sound listing and negotiation strategy. Thank you Hanson Real Estate Partners!

I recently sold my house with Chris Hanson, and couldn't speak more highly of my experience. His guidance on staging and listing preparation were invaluable. The listing presented the house honestly, and in a way that still flattered its best features. His pricing strategy was highly effective, and resulted in us getting the best possible price in our market. Finally, Chris was available to answer any questions that came up along the way.


Eileen F

Chris is amazing! He is so knowledgeable. He walked us through every step of finding and buying a new home in a way that really took some of the stress out of the whole experience. If we ever decide to sell this beautiful home he helped us find we look forward to working with him on our next adventure!


Warwick S

For over five years I have relied on Chris' expertise in a wide spectrum of realtor needs from promptly finding and vetting trustworthy tenants; fielding questions and providing accurate, dependable answers to local and regional real estate market conditions; and to effectively guiding me through the complex and often exhausting process of selling property with confidence, compassion and blatant honesty. Professional and highly informed in Southern New York State real estate markets, you can't find a better way forward to realize your real estate solutions. Chris expends his energy providing you with options and making sure you're informed and comfortable with the decisions you make. It's all in the details and Chris is excels at digging into the details. Give him a call now!


John N

Chris helped us find the perfect home and provided us with such insightful advice in every step of the process. We highly recommend him to everyone and would definitely work with him again.


Annamaria M

We have just sold our first condominium with Chris and he made the whole process very simple. He was very helpful in guiding us through the selling process and did a great job explaining all the details and answering any questions we had. The photos he took for the listing made our home look amazing. We would not hesitate to use Chris again for any future real estate transaction.


Andrew L

Hanson Real Estate Partners has helped me through the daunting task of listing and ultimately selling my house. They truly made it seam, taking all the photos, writing the description, coordinating all the showings & inspections and ultimately ended up selling my property very quickly with the most positive results. I couldn't leave a more positive review of this amazing form! Thank you so much.


Jacqui R

We couldn't be more happy with our experience working with Chris on purchasing our first home. After 6+ months of searching for a home in Newburgh (using a combination of other agents and our own attempts) we gave Chris a call. Chris came highly recommended by other people we met in Newburgh. Our first conversation was over an hour long and extremely thorough. His love for and knowledge about Newburgh runs deep. It only took 1 trip with Chris to find the home we loved, and he expertly advised us on what kind of offer to make -- which ultimately got our offer chosen in a multi-bid scenario. When our closing was delayed by bureaucratic issues in the building department, Chris went above & beyond to find a solution and push the process along. If you're looking to find a home in Newburgh, Chris is *the* person to work with!


Erin M

In this crazy COVID market, I believe Chris has his finger on the pulse for home selling/buying in Newburgh and the Hudson Valley. My home was beautifully presented (in photos and description) and listed at a price I was happy with. The viewings were well organized and offers scrutinized closely to get us the best buyer. On the buying side, it's a pleasure to check out homes with Chris because he has a great vision for properties and enthusiasm for seeing their potential. It made the experience fun for the most part. Chris was great at managing relationships and keeping the deals going when things got sticky. I learned lots about real estate working with Chris and would highly recommend him for a quality home selling/buying experience.


Jane L

I highly recommend Chris Hanson. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of Newburgh in particular, and, in general, is well informed and up to date on real estate in the Hudson Valley. He knows houses. He is upfront and honest if he spots problem areas, and offers valuable advice and insights, drawing on his extensive experience. He has the qualities you want in a realtor: He is skillful, ethical, and personable. My search took a long time, as I lived in another state and made periodic visits to look at properties. He was very patient!


Sold a Single Family home

Working with Chris was seamless. He has an unmatched knowledge of the Newburgh area. He was prompt with any questions. I would highly recommend.l Chris to anyone looking to buy in this area. Nothing but high praise!


J Vallace

Chris is very professional, responsive, and knowledgeable about the Newburgh area. He helped me buy and sell my home. I've recommended him to a friend I have in Beacon that is interested in selling their place, and I will definitely have him help me again if I come back to the area.


Robert Leonard

Until now I have never ever written a review about our dealings with realtors… My wife and I have over 30 years of building experience in Southern California South Carolina and New York… We have worked with some very professional realtors… I must say Chris Hanson is at the top of the list… Excellent communication skills...... He totally took the time to understand both my wife and myself and our home … We never felt it was about the money with Chris it was more about putting buyers and sellers together to come up with a happy result for both ...Has a very cheerful disposition and follows through quickly with his promises…


W R Steer

Chris really came through for us. We needed to rent a property out in very short notice and he found us multiple candidates over the period of a weekend. Plus, he gave us great advice on how to improve the property for the incoming tenants. Working with Chris was a no stress process! 10/5/2017

Bought a Single Family home in 2017

Chris is, hands down, one of the best in the business. He is intimately familiar with the Hudson Valley, guided my fiancee and I through the purchasing process, was always attentive to our needs and ensured our purchase went as anticipated. I would not hesitate to recommend him or his associates.


Jason H

Chris sold the impossible home. His advice and in-depth knowledge of the area helped sell our home. Chris knew what could be improved to help sell. We appreciated how fast Chris returned phone calls and text messages when we had questions. He's professional and can be trusted to represent you in the selling and buying process. We highly recommend Chris to anybody looking for an agent.


Sold a Single Family home

Chris did a superb job selling our house. In a very challenging market, in the middle of the winter, our house sold in 3 days. Chris is very knowledgeable and supportive of the local market. Recommend him highly to all interested in selling a house.


Kris M

Chris Hanson is the best. I highly recommend him whether you are selling a home or looking to purchase. Chris recently listed and sold our home but we also looked with him as buyers years ago. Both experiences were top notch. Working with Chris was a very professional and very personal experience, he understands the emotional aspects of buying and selling as much as he understands the numbers, the process and the market. When it comes to real estate in the Hudson Valley he is the guy you want in your corner, hands down.


Nathan P

Chris was excellent and instrumental in the successful sale of our home in Newburgh and purchase of our new home in Poughkeepsie. He was completely professional and courteous, and gave great advice on both the sale process and purchase process. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Hudson Valley.


Bought and sold a Single Family home

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a property (we did both) we strongly recommend to have Chris Hanson help you with the process. He is the most knowledgeable realtor in the Newburgh area. With unpresented confidence and a strong set of moral values, he conducts business in a honest, intelligent and professional manner. We wish for everyone to be able to work with him for he is truly the best person one can find.


Rob M

Chris was great to work with. He acted as both our selling and buying agent and we could not be happier with the results of selling our home and the purchase of our new one. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a realtor.


C Cahill

One year before our house sold, we asked Chris to help us prepare. He made many valuable suggestions, big and small. He understands and loves older homes and knows what's requires to sell one. We followed his advice to the letter. A year later, he took beautiful photos for the listing and the house sold quickly. Betweeen the original listing and the closing, Chris was patient and helpful, keeping us informed of the process involved witht he sale, spending much time on our behalf. He is cheerful, intelligent, and knows all the twists and turns involved in a real estate transaction.


Bought a Single Family home

From the very start of looking at homes, Chris was extremely flexible, personable, knowledgable, honest, and helpful. Every step of the way, Chris was not only willing to help us, but he was always friendly and offered advice and recommendations, with no alterior motives. He has a lot of integrity, and he was so helpful in navigating through the home-buying experience. He is invested in his community, and it shows. We highly recommended Chris and could not have asked for a better real-estate broker.


Jane G

We are so pleased with Chris who recently sold our 1790 house in Montgomery N.Y. He was through, patient, knowledgable and responsive. I would recommend him for so many reasons,our past experiences with realtors has not been so positive .I always felt Chris was working in our best interest and guided us to make correct decisions during what can be a traumatic process... He became a friend and confident with a love for historic homes that we both shared and appreciated. He is beyond measure the best realtor we have ever dealt with...


Bought a Single Family home

Chris was patience and took me to houses that I would be interested in and had the features I was looking for. He was professional, patient, on time, and listened to my wants and needs. Chris was knowledgable and pointed out the pros and cons of each property.

I'd highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a home.


Bought a Single Family home

We hit the jackpot when we found Chris. I was a real estate agent in Brooklyn, New York, looking to relocate to Newburgh, NY, and I think Chris is one of the most talented agents I've met. Chris selected the best properties on the market in our range and spent a lot of time with us, showing us around Newburgh and educating us about the history, challenges and possibilities of this emerging creative hotspot on the Hudson. His ability to evaluate and represent the pros and cons of a property is top notch. It was like being with an historian, contractor, urban planner and real estate agent rolled into one (which is, I think, the case). Chris' love for this city, deep historical knowledge, construction expertise from his previous life as a contractor/restorer and his years of activism in the renewal of the City of Newburgh made working with him a thorough and fascinating education. He is very personable and is a skilled negotiator, represented us very well when it came time to negotiate our offer, and was a stalwart advocate for us through a bumpy closing process. He has remained an unstinting source of guidance (we now actually live across the street from him), and we will always be grateful to him for helping us find and secure our beautiful home.


Bought a home

I’ve known Chris Hanson for about five years; we are both musicians and regularly perform together. Chris has impressed me many times with his deep knowledge of local real estate: he can speak knowledgeably about the history of local neighborhoods and properties, and as someone with a passion for restoring historic homes, he is full of useful advice about the unrealized potential of a property that most wouldn’t see. He was, as a result, my very first call when I began to think about buying a house. As a realtor, Chris was extraordinarily helpful and professional. His communication was excellent, and he promptly responded to emails and phone calls throughout the process. He was very straightforward about the condition of properties we toured, and he was unafraid to identify potential problems that he noticed. Given his background in restoration, he was also very good at putting these problems in perspective: he could tell me what was a relatively easy fix, and what could end up being a dealbreaker. As a first-time home buyer, I definitely appreciated his insights into each property, and into the home-buying process in general. He made an intimidating and stressful process much less scary, and helped me buy a house I’m still very happy with. I would certainly work with him again, and I recommend him highly.


Elizabeth C

I can't say enough about how positive our experience with Chris was. It's not just that he found us our home, but his knowledge of the area - the local history, how real estate works in the area - and so much more - were truly invaluable.


Helped me rent a Single Family home

Chris Hanson was great helping us with finding a place. He was very knowledgable of the area and had good advice to give. We would definitely work with him again!


Bought a Single Family home

There aren't words enough to describe mine and my wife's home buying experience with Chris Hanson. We contacted Chris a few years prior to purchasing our first home and were very impressed by his professionalism, knowledge of the local area, and his obvious attention to what we were looking for in a home. Although we did not find the house of our dreams the first go round with Chris, the experience we had with him made him our only choice for our latest attempt. Chris has the ability to make the home buying experience as stress free and enjoyable as possible. He was hard working, dedicated and patient with us as first time home buyers with the numerous questions that entails. We would recommend Chris Hanson to anyone searching for the home of their dreams. His refreshing approach made it feel like we were looking for a house with a life long friend.


Bought a Single Family home

Like buying a car buying a house can be a nerve wracking adventure. Would that we could live in a world where most people were less "out for themselves" and more interested in doing the right thing. Thankfully there are still people like this out there...

As a first time homebuyer having Chris Hanson involved was very helpful. He was generous with his time, explaining the various steps involved in the process well before they came up. He revealed the concerns of the seller so I could prepare to address those and he was an excellent guide in general, clear in all his communications with me and extremely helpful in understanding what to expect buying a historic home in the City of Newburgh. Even after the closing (when there is nothing more to "gain") he continues to help me. I don't come across people of his caliber very often.


Bought a home

Chris is a dream to work with. His attention to detail and local knowledge helped my wife and I greatly when looking for our first home. He knows the business extremely well and unlike other agents places reasonable expectations on pricing and timing with regards to the offer and closing process. We both highly recommend Chris both for first time buyers or sellers but especially for those who may not be happy with who they've worked with in the past.


Bought a Single Family home

Chris was extremely helpful and knowledgable. He is easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any of my questions and comments I had throughout the home buying process. Being a first time buyer this helped a lot. Having a background in renovation and also flipping homes his eye for detail really helped when looking at a property. We were able to walk thru a home and he could tell when an owner had maintained a property or just cleaned it up to sell. I also appreciated his honesty as we wouldn't just sugar coat it and could tell you what would need to be fixed or changed if needed. I have and will continue to reccomend Chris to anyone looking for a good real estate agent.


Helped me rent a Multiple Occupancy home in Newburgh, NY.

I cannot say enough about my experience with Chris. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, down to earth, and a wonderful person to work with. It is not often that you find an agent who is honest, upfront and as willing to help as Chris is. If the world was filled with more businessmen/women like Chris, our world would be a totally different place. Chris you ROCK!!


Bought a home

We bought a single family home in the town of Newburgh. Working with Chris was great. He was very knowlegable about the area and helped us to pinpoint the exact location we wanted to be. He was very patient with us while we narrowed our search and encouraged us to think outside the box. He used his great negotiating skills to get us the best price for our house and was there every step of the way to closing. He was a great resource in finding us an attorney for closing as well. We would definitely recommend using Chris for all your real-estate needs.


Bought a home

Chris was wonderful to work with. He is a historian of the Newburgh area so we learned much about the history (interesting facts, stories, aspects) that became an important part of knowing that we wanted to be in the city of Newburgh. Chris also knows a lot about construction and the workings of a house. This is very helpful when looking through a house and questions arise. Chris spent an entire day with our house inspector and us, a time consuming day of looking at every fold in the house. He didn't have to be there, but he was supportive and present through the ordeal. All of the people he recommended: the inspector, the lawyer, the carpenter have all been smart and responsive people as well and great to work with. At one point, I had a bit of a meltdown about it all. His counsel was wise and grounded and quite supportive. I cannot more highly recommend Chris.


Bought a Single Family home

Chris Hanson was a pleasure to work with. He was different from other Agents I've worked with in that he was responsive, respectful to my needs and extremely patient. He is knowledgeable about the hudson valley and the differences between the communities. I relied on Chris' judgement and expertise in assisting me through the extremely stressful and complicated process of buying a home. This was my first home buying experience and I truly believe that Chris' approach took the sting out of the process...

I also found that Chris was extremely helpful with community resources, ie. banks, contractors, painters, finishers, etc....


Bought a Single Family home

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Chris for the purchase of our first home. As young newlyweds, we were nervous and knew little about the process but were eager to buy. Chris became a trusted resource. His patience and understanding was outstanding, even in the midst of conversations with opinionated parents who accompanied us on a few trips. Always willing to give his expert advice on home improvement/renovation projects, we found Chris to be very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He helped us seal the deal on our perfect home shortly after we started looking, in what proved to be an area of very limited options. We could not have been happier to have Chris on our side at the closing table and throughout the entire process.


Bought a Single Family home

I have worked with a number of agents before I worked with Chris and they were all the same. Never returned phone calls or emails and left me in the dark. Not only did Chris meet my needs, he went above and beyond to make sure everything that I wanted done got done. He was always in communication with me and always let me know what was going on. He stood his ground and got things done as the closing got closer. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for a home because he makes the process as easy as possible.


Bought a Multiple Occupancy home

Chris has been our agent for several deals, and has ALWAYS been professional, helpful, informative, and fun to work with. He is very involved in the community and is passionate about his work. Additionally, he can recommend the best banks, lawyers, inspectors, contractors, plumbers, electricians - everything you need.


Bought and sold a Single Family home

Chris helped us both sell and buy our homes in a difficult market. Along with his ability to carefully explain all aspects of the process, he was able to point us to informed sources for financing. He is especially knowledgeable about historic properties and the process of renovation and restoration. Chris was always patient and available every step of the way.


Bought and sold a home

Chris acted as my agent in three high maintenance deals in 2008 and 2009- in both selling and purchasing property. In all three instances he was courteous, diplomatic and made sure the deals happened in a professional manner. When questions and/or concerns arose, he responded quickly and followed up in a timely manner. His marketing skills helped make one deal a otherwise unlikely success. Throughout the entire process of each deal he was always responsive.


Bought a Single Family home

Chris Hanson is reliable, efficient and most importantly highly knowledgable in the field of real estate. Chris was very helpful in leading me through the home buying process. He was available whenever I had a question, and was persistent in finding the perfect match for me and my wants and needs. I would recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home in the Hudson Valley.


T Maguire

I had a great experience working with Chris. I found him very honest and his local knowledge s second to none.
