About Me

I pride myself on giving my clients the most precise and up-to-date feedback on the state of the market, market trends, and comparable sales and property values; and providing clients with a realistic outlook on what they can expect to achieve in today’s market.

My diverse real estate background gives me many resources to draw from while advising clients of their real estate options. Prior to working as a Realtor, I worked as a Financial Analyst in number of highly regarded companies in the real estate sector. I also hold a portfolio of rental properties and a degree in Housing and Real Estate (Honours) from the University of Guelph.

Client Testimonials

“I had only had two weeks to list my house…Christopher showed up every morning on-site working tirelessly, doing everything necessary to get the house ready (he arranged for a dumpster, painting crew, carpet cleaners, house cleaners, offered great staging advice, went with me to buy new appliances, even spread mulch in the gardens, arranged for professional photographs etc.)… Chris really is a hands-on real estate agent who cares about his clients, and within ten days my property was listed. There were plenty of showings and immediate interest in the property. He was cool, calm and collected and a very good negotiator throughout the whole process, demonstrating amazing selling skills – all with a sense of humour! THANK YOU CHRIS!”

Shawn G.

“We thought buying our first home would be stressful, but having Chris as our agent made the experience so much better and easier than we ever could have expected. I would highly recommend using Chris as your real estate agent! He is so patient, and really took the time to explain every step of the process with my boyfriend and I to make sure that we were comfortable and happy. He was honest and able to provide helpful advice to know how to best negotiate while still getting exactly what we wanted. He was on top of new listings and was available anytime we needed him without hesitation. He was diligent in gathering all the information about listings which made the house showing experience that much better and easier. We cannot thank him enough for his hard work in helping us secure the most perfect house, within our budget! Thank you so much Chris!”

“There really aren’t enough words to express how truly great Chris was to work with! He was exactly what we needed. As first time home buyers, he really took the time to explain the process to us and answer all of our questions. He was never pushy and never tried to force anything on us that he knew wasn’t what we were looking for…He was just so helpful and reliable and really made sure we found exactly what we were looking for. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!”

Angelica D.

“We recently worked with Chris to sell our existing home and purchase a new one in another city. From the beginning, Chris had a thoughtful approach to what we should do and how we should do it, and was always available to answer questions or keep things moving along. His expertise and calm demeanor gave us the confidence we needed to make these big decisions. We were extremely pleased with the results of our sale and are now very happy in our new home.”

Sarah A.

“Chris is the best! Just what you need in a realtor, he works hard to find the right property for you. In my case, he found me a great investment opportunity and a possible future home. Chris is quick, punctual and provides great communication. He’ll walk you through all the steps and provides insightful feedback regarding properties and neighbourhoods. He makes sure you’re comfortable at all times and helps you understand every step along the way. As a first time home buyer, he’s my pick!”

Patrick G.

“I cannot thank Chris enough for all that he has done for us. He sold my condo and helped me purchase my dream home within 6 hours. Having him made everything so easy. My condo sold the first day it was on the market. He gave me honest and sincere advice throughout the entire process. Chris even recommended the perfect mortgage specialist and home inspector. Trusting Chris with your home or allowing him to help you purchase real estate is truly a no brainer.”

Hailee S.

“Chris was incredibly professional and knowledgeable when it came to the purchase of my condo. He paid close attention to what I was looking for and worked hard to help me find the perfect place. He answered all my questions and worked with me through every step of the process. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy or sell in this area.”

Michael S.

“My husband and my experience with Christopher has exceeded our expectations. 3 years later we still have a working relationship with him. His knowledge and honesty is what makes him a great realtor. Highly recommend him.”
