Testimonials 🤩

Mike did an amazing job helping me through the process of purchasing my first home! He wasn’t familiar with the Jackson Area however he did his research on the house and surrounding areas for me. He made the whole process extremely easy for a first-time home buyer. He was very responsive to my questions and worked with the selling realtor to answer all my questions. I highly recommend Mike and Bailey & Associates Real Estate and the whole team!! Thank you for helping me make my dream come true.

Angie Mast | Home Buyer

I worked with Chris to sell my home and buy a new one. He was wonderful to work with for both, making the process as painless as possible. He’s very knowledgeable about what to look for in a home, what to avoid, and what to expect in homes in different areas. He went above and beyond to make sure that I ended up in the right home for me. I can’t recommend him enough, I’ll definitely work with him again for any future home sales and purchases!

Saurabh Rohatgi | Home Seller & Buyer

The entire experience of purchasing a home is very stressful. Working with Chris made it so much easier. The personal connection made me feel so much more comfortable about everything. If I had any questions or concerns, they were addressed quickly and I felt like the explanation or advise was more than enough. A huge thank you to Chris and his entire team.

Neil Robert | Home Buyer

It has been over 30 years since we last went through the home buying process. We didn’t know what to expect when we started this adventure but were so lucky and fortunate to be able to work with Chris on this process. Chris was extremely knowledgeable in not only the areas we were interested in but also had numerous resources to help us (inspectors, radon testing etc..).

He went above and beyond in helping stage our house while we were out of town to get it on market; his attention to detail and prompt replies to all questions really took the burden off of us as sellers. Not only did he help sell our current home but he also helped us close on our new home and ensure we were set up the best way financially through both transactions.
Chris is absolutely best in class in his resourcefulness, kindness and overall Realtor Experiences. If you’re thinking about reaching out to him… you absolutely should; you won’t be disappointed.

Sharon Kokorelis | Home Seller & Buyer

As first time homebuyers, Kris and I consider ourselves extremely lucky to have had Chris as our realtor. His connections and general knowledge to other resources that we had no experience in really helped us out when it came to inspections, roofing, electrical, etc. He was always available to chat when we had questions or concerns which was extremely valuable to us.

At every step of the way, it felt like he genuinely cared about getting us the perfect house for us. Chris is extremely patient and always went above and beyond to help us out. Chris is just the best, and we can’t recommend him enough! We will 100% be using him as our realtor in the future! Thank you again, Chris!

Diane Dignan | Home Sellers

Chris was recommended to us by a friend. After having a terrible time with 2 previous real estate agents we figured we should give him a try and we are so glad we did! Chris was everything a real estate agent should be – kind, professional, available and knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. After 18 months of searching in this crazy market Chris finally helped us buy our first home! He was pleasure to work with.

Adela Tirla | Home Buyers

Chris and his office and staff went above and beyond to help make the sale of our condo a breeze. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in a great experience selling or buying a home.

Bill Wilson | Home Sellers

Chris Bailey was recommended by a neighbor and we wanted an agent with South Lyon roots & connections. We recommend Chris Bailey for three reasons. First, he found the perfect house for us, at a great price, in an absolutely BRUTAL market. The Case-Schiller National Price Index had increased 19.7% year over year, the median U.S. home price was $341,600, and unprecedented demand had created home-buying bidding wars. Second, after helping us purchase our dream home, Chris sold our then-existing home, netting us a 39% profit. Finally, Chris’s work ethic, “soft” skills, and business acumen are impressive. We traipsed around South Lyon all summer, putting in bids on homes (at least 5), and getting turned down. Chris was always positive (yet realistic) and made our children feel important/part of the process. He was on time for every appointment. While business results are the most important factor to us, we liked Chris and now consider him a friend.

John Kirk & Megan page Home Buyers & Sellers

Chris helped me purchase and sell a unit, and purchase a second unit. His experience ensured that I was accounting for future plans/thoughts that I had not considered, such as kids, and how that would affect the decision making process. When it came time for the sale, Chris and his team put together a very attractive package for our unit. We got multiple offers and Chris helped break down the details of each offer in an easy-to-understand way. Working with Chris has been a pleasure and I cannot recommend him enough.

Jorden & Charlette Guttrich Home Buyers & Sellers

Chris was my realtor in June/July 2021. At this time the market was absolutely insane. After viewing a few homes we were able to have an offer accepted. The home we found was right in our budget, in the town we wanted, and appraised at the full amount we offered. Chris continuously went above and beyond at every aspect of the job (and even parts that are not part of the job). Even the inspector that Chris recommended was top notch. If I ever leave this home, I will be contacting him to sell it for me. I cannot recommend him enough.

Bryan Essenmacher Home Buyers

Today we closed on the fourth home my wife and I have purchased collectively. We now understand the difference between a good Realtor and an AMAZING Realtor. Chris and his team showed us professionalism, quick responsiveness, education and stewardship through the entire process. Having Chris at every potential home we toured, was equivalent to having a pre-home-inspection before we ever considered making an offer. After we found our home and our offer was accepted, the Bailey team provided us a road map and milestones from offer acceptance to close. We cannot that Mr. Bailey and his team enough for making what can be a very stressful process, enjoyable and calming.

Jessica & Matt Howell Home Buyers

Danyelle & Joe Home Buyer

Chris & Jacqueline Naden Home Buyer & Home Seller

Chris was extremely helpful during the entire process. With it being my first house, Chris took the time to sit down and explain the process to me before I even seriously started looking, just so I would know what to expect. When I was ready to start looking, Chris was very patient through the  whole process and answering my many questions. Chris 100% knows what he is doing and is great at doing it, you can put your full trust in him and he will help you find your perfect home like he did for me!

Alyssa Hogan Home Buyer

Chris recently helped me and my wife buy our first home. During the searching process he went above and beyond to make sure we knew as much about each house as possible, pointing out everything he could as we walked through houses (both good and bad!). Just after we had our offer accepted, lock  down from Covid-19 hit the state and Chris made sure to keep us constantly updated through the process (even if he didn’t have anything new to share) as we worked our way to our closing date. We couldn’t be happier with our new house and highly recommend Chris

John & Richelle O. Home Buyer

Chris is a fantastic realtor! He is honest, fair, and friendly. He helped our family find our dream home and sell our other home fast. Chris was always available to answer our questions and made the process as smooth as possible.

Annaliese Brindley | Home Buyer

Amy B. Home Seller & Buyer

Chris Bailey and his team did an excellent job with selling my home. The process was very easy and stress free! I would highly recommend him for any sellers or buyers : )

Erin Turel Home Seller

Chris was recommended to us by my daughter. He worked very closely with her and ended up finding the perfect house for her. We had Chris list my mother’s house. I would highly recommend Chris! He provided excellent service from the beginning of the process until closing. Chris was very  professional and honest with us. He was always available and promptly responded to emails, calls and texts. We were very impressed by his work ethic and incredible drive to satisfy his clients and grow as a professional. We interviewed other agents but it was clear from the start that Chris was our guy. He had a great market strategy, was very knowledgeable and had access to many resources. The house sold in four days for the full asking price. The process was seamless from start to finish and we believe this was due to Chris’ expertise!

Cathy Home Seller

We have a fair amount of experience with real estate sales consultants (8 moves overall). This experience was easily the best. Not only did Chris put together a thorough market analysis to assess competition and help us establish an asking price, he offered insight into the market the  “statistics” don’t convey. He was always responsive to our request for information, and desire to see (several) properties. It was very apparent that he holds his responsibility to client and profession in high regard. Even when our home had attracted multiple offers in the first day on the market (I’d say largely due to his marketing efforts and pricing strategy), he still followed through with conducting a planned open house resulting in yet better offers. We feel he simply outworked our expectations, and can’t recommend him and his team strongly enough. Outstanding in every way.

D. Gabriel | Home Seller & Buyer

When looking for a realtor, I wanted someone who didn’t just want to tell me what I wanted to hear.  I’ve bought and sold 4 homes, so I was aware of what I didn’t want in a realtor.  For me I needed experience in this market, and someone to do more than just list my property.  Chris Bailey is a 5 star realtor, who knows exactly what he’s doing and worked hard to sell my property.  He wouldn’t even talk to me at first about the price I wanted to list it, which at first I didn’t understand.  He did his research and together we came up with a reasonable price.  Not because he knew better, but he did his job.  With that and his professional pictures we had 9 viewings in 36 hours and 5 offers on the 3rd day.  We had 2 asking price offers which we reviewed together in person.   Chris’s experience weeded out one of them as it was a bad offer, that I feel some realtors would have missed.  Chris also took the time to read the offer we accepted to me, section by section to make sure that there the purchase offer was in my best interest.  What I liked best about Chris, is his professionalism.  He came dresses for success, it showed from the time I met him, and all the way through to the very last moment. Including the cheesy photo that my wife loved, holding the sold sign.  If I have to sell again I would want Chris as my realtor every time.

Steven Quigley | Home Seller

Chris came recommended to us from a trusted family member, and we decided to use him as an agent for both selling our home and buying a new one. Chris did not disappoint! Chris’ friendly demeanor put us at ease immediately. During our initial meetings he came prepared with a comparative market analysis and gave us recommendations for getting our house ready for a quick sale. After one day of private showings, and one Open House, which Chris came fully prepared for, we had multiple offers. A quick sale it turned out to be (not even 72 hours later) and at top dollar! Chris made selling our home as painless as possible; we truly could not have been more pleased with the outcome!

Kerry Medendorp | Home Seller & Buyer

My husband and I just recently purchased our first home and Chris Bailey was excellent to work with! With this being our first home, initially my husband and I weren’t quite sure what really wanted. Chris was very patient, knowledgeable and continuously made himself available on evenings and weekends. His communication was top notch as he would text and e-mail back almost immediately. We always felt like a top priority. He is also very well versed with the metro Detroit area and gave us great advice on communities that are a good fit for our current needs. This is a frustrating market for buyers, especially first time buyers… but Chris Bailey will definitely make sure you end up in your next home! We highly recommend Chris Bailey as your next Realtor.

Lisa Dalton | Home Buyer

Chris helped up purchase our first home. He was patient, diligent in getting us options that fit our needs and worked to get us a home that we were more than happy with. I would recommend Chris to anyone in the market for a new home or their first purchase.

Daniel Stevens | Home Buyer

Chris Bailey did a fantastic job selling our house and helping us find another one. He was thorough, professional, knowledgeable, dependable and detail oriented.Chris did a thorough market analysis of recent comparable homes close to ours to give us an idea of what our house might sell for along with suggestions of what to do to prep the house for showings. He took numerous pictures and posted over 70 photos of our house adding a caption to each one. Chris did a coming soon announcement on social media and within his office.Chris held back to back open houses on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon, bringing bottled water and cookies for potential buyers. We also had several private showings. On day 5 of being on the market we had a strong offer , 96% of our asking price. Chris made sure we had the 60 days rent back we needed to ensure a smooth transition between houses.In terms of finding another house, Chris was happy to show us any house we requested, even before we really should have been looking and even those that were a bit above our price range. He was great at noticing things about a house and what was new vs. what would need updating either immediately or in a few years. He also could give a rough estimate of what the update might cost so we could factor that in to our decision and offer.Once we narrowed down the best neighborhood for our daughter Chris worked hard to find us a house that met our needs. He knocked on doors and mailed a letter to see if anyone had a home with the items we needed and that might consider selling. This tactic worked! The day after the letter reached mail boxes an owner called Chris. A week later we made an offer and now live in that house.Chris has a large number of contacts. The inspector he recommended spent 3 hours at the home taking photos and making notes, providing us with a very detailed report, including what would need to be fixed/updated and when. He also recommended a locksmith who was efficient and reasonably price. Chris took care of transferring the water bill into our name and dropping off documents at city hall for us.His organization and attention to detail made the home buying and selling process manageable. Chris even helped us move. He does it all.We are very thankful that Chris was our Realtor and we would definitely recommend him.Lynn & Eric

Lynn Hensley | Home Seller & Buyer

I want to thank Mr. Christopher Bailey for the services provided during my recent real estate transaction. Chris was always within reach when needed during my home buying experience, as I am a first time home buyer. Chris exhibited patience and wisdom early on and throughout my house hunt. I stoppedlooking for a couple of months and sought out Mr. Bailey’s help when I was again ready to buy. He was friendly, knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. Again, Mr. Bailey, THANK YOU for your services. I would highly recommend you and I give you a Five Star rating!

Mark Wasielewski | Home Buyer

Chris gets the perfect match between customer and product. He is dedicated to helping people make purchase decisions they will be happy with in the long run.

Linda Grudnicki

If you’re thinking about buying a home and you’re not sure which realtor to go with, may I suggest that you consider Chris Bailey?  While it might not seem that your Realtor matters, let me tell you, it does.

I originally was put into contact with a realtor through an acquaintance. I was reassured that she would be able to find me just the right house after my divorce. I was looking for a home that was not a lot of money, and that I could move into right away. I worked with this first realtor for over a year, only to find out that she had forged my name on legal documents, and refused to refund my deposit on the house I ended up losing.Frustrated, and still without a home, I contacted Chris Bailey. I have known Chris for quite some time, and knew of his exceptional work ethic. I was expecting another long and drawn out process to find my dream home. To my surprise, Chris not only took me to look at houses within my time frame, but he found my house on the first day!I cannot express my gratitude enough to Chris and his team. They answered every question, explained every process, and treated me like no other. Chris was efficient, professional, patient and thorough. I could not have asked for a better realtor.If you are in the market for a new home, I cannot recommend any better person to have along your journey. Chris absolutely is the best!Sincerely,Carrie Darkowski
Extremely Happy Home Owner

Carrie Darkowski | Home Buyer


Working with Christopher was a top notch experience, as a first time home buyer I had many concerns. Christopher was able to address them and find the information I needed. Also he went above and beyond in the negotiation process. I will recommend Christopher to anyone looking for a home in the area. Christopher was able to handle most of the transactions for me while I was on the road for work.

Thank you Christopher
