Our Mission

CB Realty doesn’t work like other real estate agencies in Houston. It’s important to know that with us, you don’t just get an agent, but a team. For starters, we don’t work as individuals, but as a collective group of people with varying skillsets and capabilities. Each of our team members specializes in specific areas, in turn creating a rockstar team behind you and your home sale or purchase. We aren’t afraid to provide a truly personal touch, because what’s more personal than your home? You’re about to make one of the biggest decisions of your life, and you shouldn’t be making it alone.

Our Vision

We’ve seen and heard numerous horror stories from past clients on previous home buying/selling journeys. Our goal is to make all of that ancient history for you. We operate with a few core values in place—honesty, integrity, and transparency. We believe that doing business with one another should always be built on these foundational values.

Therefore, when you’re working with the CB Realty team, you can rest assured that we have not only your best interests in mind, but that we’re also sharing every bit of pertinent information with you along the way.

What Our Clients Say

Chris is great! Very professional, accessible, honest and will work hard for you. Chris made our home search easy and fun, answered all the questions we had, worked around our time constraints when viewing homes and helped us get a great deal! I will definitely work with him again should the need arise and would highly recommend him to my friends and family

When moving Houston area a little over a year ago, I had no idea where to begin looking for a home. I had grown up in a suburb of Houston and was unfamiliar with the specific neighborhoods or areas closer to town or inside the loop. Chris was very knowledgeable and did a great job of going over the pros/cons of each and showed me around. He was really laid back and easy going when looking at houses and never made me feel pressured. When I finally found what I wanted, Chris did a great job of making sure everything was thoroughly and promptly taken care of. I have already recommended using Chris to several of my friends and family.

Great experience. Chris was honest from the start and always had our best interests in mind. We chose Chris because he wasn’t pushy and gave great advice along the way. He went above and beyond to help us find and choose our house. His knowledge of housing construction and all the little things to look for definitely came in handy as he could point out problem areas right off the bat. Would definitely work with him again.

Chris isn’t just any realtor. Having been born and raised into a family that is a home contracting company – focusing on remodeling homes, kitchens, bathrooms, room editions etc. When Chris shows you a house, he shows it and explains even the most nitty gritty details about what potential negatives and what the all of the positives of any property are (even for the first time home buyers like ourselves). This is because he knows how to remodel homes himself.
There are probably only a handful of realtors out there that would rather just sell you a house instead of making sure you are happy for years to come.
I have used Chris as our realtor when renting an apartment, a rental house, and now my wife & I’s first home. We are loyal customers and when we buy a new house, we will use him to list ours.

Chris is an excellent real estate agent who helps you through all aspects of the buying process and works with various contacts to help make buying a home a painless process. Prior to even looking at properties, Chris meets with his customers to make sure he has a solid understanding of what you’re looking for, while also explaining the comprehensive buying process. As a first-time home buyer, this was extremely helpful! When looking at properties, Chris was quick to point out items of concern and was extremely honest on his opinion of the property/location/asking price. Once we had an accepted offer on a property, Chris stayed on top of the buyer’s timeline. Again, not knowing what to fully expect, this was extremely helpful. Overall, I would (and have) highly recommend Chris as a real estate to anyone!

Chris was quick to respond to our initial inquiry. He provided us with a list of homes which fit our criteria. He was able to give another perspective on the homes we looked at. He saw big structural issues we otherwise would have missed and was able to provide an estimate for the cost of the repairs. Very knowledgeable about the different areas of Houston and very easy to work with. We found a great house by working with him and are very happy!

What can I say about Chris! My wife and I relocated to Houston for work and had never been to Houston before, so we were over our heads. We met Chris after he sold a house to a friend of ours and never wanted to speak to another realtor again. Chris took a lot of time to show us different parts of Houston and what they had to offer. We looked at probably 30 different houses in 20 different neighborhoods, from Jersey Village to Pearland! Chris never gave up on us and would respond promptly to every call, email, or even text. Chris walked us through the process of buying hand in hand and even helped with our lender (a whole other story)! He really made the whole experience less stressful than it could have been and would recommend him to anyone!

We purchased out first house with Chris Boyles and he really impressed us with his patience, professionalism and knowledge of the different territories around Houston. His background and experience truly set him apart from others in this industry. Chris shielded us from making a poor decision on a house that had potential structural damage and we could have wasted a generous amount of time if we had to wait for inspectors to find this out. I strongly recommend Chris if you’re looking for an honest, hardworking agent that won’t “beat around the bush” wasting anyone’s time.

Chris helped me sell my first home and got involved weeks prior to listing the house. He helped me focus on the items in the home that were important to buyers to give me my best chance at achieving my expected selling price. He was patient and very responsive once the home was listed. He supplied me with updates on potential buyers/offers and was very helpful in answering my questions during the contract and closing phases.
The process flowed very smoothly, and I will gladly recommend Chris to any other sellers or buyers. His market knowledge of my neighborhood was important to me and proved to be extremely useful.

Chris Boyles exceeded our expectations of a realtor and ensured that the home buying process was a very positive experience. Chris made us feel like we were the only clients he was representing. As we were new to the process, Chris invested the time and effort to give us the confidence that we were making well-informed and educated decisions. Chris’ experience in home remodeling helped us evaluate the existing condition and total “move-in” costs of the various homes we saw. In a competitive market, Chris offered relevant data for us to use in developing our offer. He also had several suggestions and tools that we used to make our offer more competitive, which ultimately were major factors to the success of our offer. After we had a contract on our home, Chris provided us with valuable referrals to get our remodel projects completed. In this competitive market, you need a realtor who knows the market and has the tools and experience to make your offer stand out. Chris has these qualifications and we are glad he was on our side.

Chris is hands down the best realtor in the Houston area. He was our realtor for purchasing our very first home and we couldn’t have been luckier to find him. We went with a house in the area north of I-10 between Blalock and Gessner. Chris was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was always happy and helpful when he was showing us around. He was prompt to schedule any walk through that we wanted and was very flexible, always able to work around our hectic work schedules. Not only does Chris have a thorough knowledge of construction but he has a keen eye; when you are looking at a house with him he is quick to point out examples of cheap patch jobs or great quality remodeling (something I know nothing about!). He was helpful every step of the way –from finding us great houses to look at to our offer to the final closing day. He never got annoyed with our endless questions and I feel he was truly invested in finding us the perfect home. Chris was even able to recommend painters once we moved in and we were very happy with their prices and their work. I was so happy we found someone who knows the area as well as he does. Overall, Chris is intelligent, professional and just overall pleasant to work with when you are dealing with the pressure of home buying or selling. I would definitely use Chris again and will be recommending him to any friends or family looking to buy or sell!

I’ve worked with Chris on multiple transactions and his knowledge, energy, and savvy makes all the difference. I’ve worked with many real estate agents through the years in both business and on personal real estate transactions and Chris is as good as it gets for my money. He hustles, stays interested, and is relatable, which really helps in a city like Houston with so many different people from different backgrounds and professions. I’ll rely on Chris over pretty much any agent I’ve met – he’s very good at personal homes and did a great job learning what he needed to help me through a commercial transaction recently, which is a relatively new thing for him and he performed like a seasoned vet.

Chris was amazing. We were first time home buyers and really didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into. Chris had both the expertise and patience to walk us through the process. He had an excellent grasp on the current market, where to look, how much homes were worth, and resale potential. But his biggest asset was his honesty and straightforward approach. We found out quickly that Chris has extensive knowledge of building and remodeling homes, having done both himself. In Houston that turned out to be invaluable. We could walk through a home and he would point out flaws in construction, materials, foundation, etc. Mold is a big deal in Houston and he could stand outside a house and tell if it was constructed properly to prevent mold. There were even times when he would straight out say,”I won’t let you buy this house, it has too many construction faults.” He could stand in the house and give us estimates as to how much it would cost to remodel the kitchen, put in new floors, etc. and if it was worth it when we went to re-sell. Found a great house at a great price, couldn’t have done it without Chris.
