Extreme satisfaction

- We used 2 other realtors for trying to sell our acreage but we came back to Chris Mangen who successfully sold our home. Chris is very personable, knowledgeable, and he listened to our input. Chris remained very optimistic and reassured us throughout the stressful and anxious process of selling our home. We owe a great deal of gratitude for his efforts and skill that took us to another chapter in our lives. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Chris to any person selling or buying a home to represent them as an agent. Jerry and Theresa Hawley

Any time I need advice or future business, I know I can call Chris Mangen. Having him as my agent was the easiest part of the task of selling my home.

Chris is a very experienced realtor. 18 years of experience means that Chris has probably experienced every possibility or road block when it comes to selling or buying your new home. Chris sold our home for us in less than a week during the Christmas holidays!! I loved his attention to detail in the contracts. He truly had our best interests in mind. Chris always took the time to go over the details in our offer and make sure we didn't have questions. That shows that he truly cares and has your best interests in mind. The experience with Chris was flawless. I have no complaints. Refer him to all your friends

We can't thank Chris enough for not only selling our house in 12 hours of signing the paperwork for him to be our agent, but his follow up was top notch, ensuring the paperwork was done correctly, that our deposit was transferred on time and his professionalism was the best I have ever experienced! I highly recommend him!!!!!!


We were in a position where we had to sell a home remotely. Chris was extremely helpful in facilitating that process and making the process as painless as possible. Chris was everything you'd expect in a Realtor: prompt, responsive, courteous, knowledgeable. All at a very fair fee.

Chris help me get an honest estimate for my property so I didn't feel I left anything on the table. Chris was very honest and real even after the sale was final. Chris does stay in contact with me every once in awhile to make sure I have everything I need. He is a great guy.


I listed with Chris because of his creative out of the box approach to me while I was a For Sale by Owner. Chris made a flexible and reasonable offer with his listing. The MLS exposure was valuable. And Chris was professional, courteous and got our house sold fast!


Excellent Realtor. Chris is very hard-working and professional. He stays on top of the transaction at every stage and gives good and tangible advice to help with the sale. His team worked closely with us to make improvements and so we fondly call them "The Property Brothers". Thanks for all the attention to detail and effort to resolve any conflicts and negotiations! Sincerely, MJ

We could not have been more pleased with our experiance with Chis as our real estate agent. Prior to us listing our house, Chris gave us an honest and accurate assessment of the condition of the house and helped us make decisions on how to prepare it for market. Once we decided to sell, Chris helped us determine a fair price for the house and it resulted in a good offer in just 4 days and a closing within 30 days after that offer. During that time, Chis guided us through the process and handled everything with the buyers as well as other miscellaneous issues that needed to be addressed prior to closing. This experience with Chris was by far the easient real estate transaction we've ever had. So, if you're looking for a honest, hard working professional to help you sell your home, Chris is a great choice.


Chris helped me sell my first home and purchase my subsequent home. He's very knowledgeable, organized, proactive and most importantly, honest. If you're thinking of buying or selling a home, I highly recommend Chris as your real estate agent.

Tim Francis

Chris is an outstanding real estate agent and would highly recommend him to anyone who is selling or buying a home. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and always timely with text, email or phone replies. Chris knows the market inside & out!


Chris was very helpful in selling my brother's house for me. He always called me back in a timely manner and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone wanting to sell or buy a house.

Sold an acreage for $672,800 We, David and Diane, are previous owners of the residence sold through the assistance of Chris Mangen and Brad Boutwell of Nebraska Realty. We have worked closely with each individually and collectively since October and because of their professionalism, dedication, and communication in providing their service in selling our home, we are more than happy to provide this letter of recommendation on their behalf. First and foremost, both Chris Mangen and Brad Boutwell took the time and effort to initially meet with David and I and to begin a relationship necessary in the sale of our home. Both were very deliberate in their initial conversation regarding their services, commitment, and attention to detail in addition to taking the time to listen and hear our concerns, issues, and questions. It was during this initial meeting that David and I felt comfortable working with Chris and Brad as a team. David and I met with several realtors and did not receive the same level of commitment, time and effort as expressed and demonstrated by Chris and Brad. During the initial conversation and throughout the sale of our home, it was evident both were on the same page and worked collaboratively in meeting the end goal of selling our home. Both Chris and Brad communicated effectively and developed strategy no other realtor provided. It was a pleasure working with this team and in the future if their services are needed, we would not hesitate to contact them.
