We were incredibly lucky to work with Chris in both buying and selling our homes. As a buying agent, Chris is so patient, level-headed and knowledgeable; he put our needs first and never allowed us to get swept up in the madness of the market. Once we’d found our dream home, Chris worked diligently to get us the best price and stayed on top everything right up until and even beyond our closing date. And I can’t even begin to outline just how amazing Chris was as our selling agent. He took complete control of the process and guided us through what needed to be done to maximize interest in our home. We were selling in a traditionally “down” season (mid-summer), but Chris wasn’t fazed at all. He put in weeks of work to stage our home and to drum up interest with agents and prospective buyers before it was listed. Our house looked incredible when hit the market, and it sold in about a day for well over asking price. Selling is a very stressful process, but Chris anticipates the stressors and takes many steps to alleviate them for his clients. His staging skills are magazine worthy. He has our fullest and most enthusiastic recommendation. We were so grateful to him for all his advocacy and hard work.

First and foremost, Chris is a wonderful person who is very easy to work with and has a great sense of humour. Buying and selling real estate can be a very emotional, and sometimes stressful time. Chris' calm demeanour, and in-depth knowledge were key to our smooth and successful experience. The time and energy that Chris put into the purchase and sale of our investment properties was invaluable. He provided us with ton of research on current listings and the state of the market, allowing us to make informed decisions when it came down to the listing and purchase of our new property. He always made himself available, was flexible with his time, and was quick to respond to any questions we had. His great taste, eye for design, and help during the preparation of our property for sale ensured that it looked it's best, attracting a ton of interest. Simply put, he goes above and beyond. We can't say enough great things about Chris, and would highly recommend him. 

Bridget Flynn - Glen Road

We first started working with Chris almost ten years ago, as first-time home buyers. He helped us break into a tough downtown Toronto market in 2011. He was patient, encouraging, and had great instincts. We loved our first home, and with Chris’ guidance felt confident that we were making an excellent investment in our future. 

Seven years later when we were ready to sell, we didn’t want to work with anyone else. Chris was so dedicated in helping us get our house ready for the market - working on tight timelines, keeping us organized, and lifting our spirits. Our staged house looked incredible, and we were so surprised that our home sold in just a few days, exceeding our expectations. We are especially thankful that Chris advised us to decline a few bully offers that later proved to be inferior. We are now settling into our second home, in a neighbourhood we never would have dreamed of owning in less than a decade ago. 

A few years ago, Chris also was invaluable helping my dad downsize and selling our family home. I’m still so happy that my dad took my advice to work with Chris. It was a difficult process, but Chris showed such sensitivity and care. He made the whole process so much easier on the entire family, constantly offering all kinds of support and helping us make sound decisions. 

We continue to feel lucky that we have Chris in our corner. We wouldn’t put our trust in anyone else! 

Petrina & Matt - Sterling Rd, Sorauren Ave, and Cleveland St

Chris was meticulous in managing both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home. We didn’t have a single thing to worry about. He encouraged us to see as many houses as possible and diligently researched every possible question. He is very knowledgeable about the market, strategic and thoughtful. I have already recommended him to my friends.

Blair Dunker - Wellesley St East

We were first time entries into the market when we met Chris. We didn't have an agent so were just going to open houses by ourselves. At most of them, we'd meet the selling agent and leave having felt patronized, or intimidated, or ignored.

When we met Chris at a beautiful property, he was unlike any other agent we had encountered. He was relaxed, funny and happy to provide advice on the spot. We liked him immediately.

As we got more serious we found Chris to be a supportive, calming presence throughout a process that is usually anything but calm. He never pushed us out of our comfort zone, and would always gently bring us back to earth if we got carried away dreaming of things beyond our means.

Chris is an amazing listener who is dead set on getting you into the right home, but his experience is obvious and he isn't afraid to be blunt with you if you need it.

To top it all off, Chris is hilarious. Our bidding nights should have been stressful, agonizing experiences, but Chris could always be trusted to break the tension with a joke and an anecdote. We enjoyed our evenings with him, even if we didn't end up with the property.

In the end, we ended up with a property we love at a great price. Our only regret is we won't get to spend any more time with Chris!

Evan Herbert - Morrison Ave 

I met Chris at an open house when I had just started to consider selling my condo and buying a house. He was easy to talk to, friendly and we hit it off, staying in touch while I considered my options. When I was ready to sell later that year, Chris helped me organize, assisting with some of the moving and providing great contacts for storage spaces and movers. My condo was beautifully staged and on the market in 3 weeks and sold in two days for more than asking, certainly more than I would have thought if not for Chris' expertise on the market values at that time. Then it was on to look for a new home, albeit in a very crazy housing market. Chris' relaxed personality always made house hunting fun, and the bidding process much less stressful. We found my new home a few months later, in a beautiful area that Chris suggested I consider. I have already recommended Chris to a colleague looking for a new home, and will continue to do so in the future - I consider myself very fortunate to have had Chris as my agent!

Kaye Sargeant - Beechwood Drive

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Chris. He has helped us buy two investment properties, and both times the experience was painless and stress free, which are not words normally used to describe buying real estate. Chris is first and foremost a wonderful listener. He truly listens to what his Clients are looking for and then doesn't waste time showing you properties you're not going to like. Secondly, Chris is so professional. He arrives having already viewed the properties and is able to point things out to help your decision making process. Thirdly, Chris is so much fun. Spending time viewing properties with Chris is a treat in and of itself. For both of our investment properties, Chris went above and beyond: finding cleaners, painters, etc and personally managing so many of the details, so we didn't have. He then leased both properties in record time. Chris is a real gem and I would highly recommend him.

Maggie Fairs - Queen St West, King St West

Having happily rented homes in Toronto for the better part of 20 years, my wife and I were less enthusiastic when circumstances prodded us to purchase for the first time. Chris Kelly came highly recommended and he did not disappoint.  In short order he took stock of our family's needs and wishes, and with calm and good humour guided us skilfully through what could easily have been a dull and disheartening process. Chris shatters the Realtor stereotype. He is neither pushy nor greedy. He is conscientious, sensible, tactful, generous and available. He commits himself to finding the right home for you. We looked at over 60 houses with Chris, and he actually talked us OUT of putting offers on several of them. In the end, we succeeded in buying the very first house we bid on (against 15 other bidders)...the RIGHT house. Chris is the goods.

Sam Williams - Ashburnham Rd

Chris Kelly exceeded our every expectation as a Real Estate Agent. He is professional, knowledgeable, insightful, courteous, always available to answer questions, sensitive to his Client's needs, and honest. Chris found us our dream home, then guided us through a multi offer situation to make sure the home became ours. He also did a spectacular job selling our house, working along side us, hands on, doing the heavy lifting, helping us prepare our home for show, then securing the amount that we wanted. We have worked with other Agents before but none of them ever showed even a modicum of Chris' devotion to his Clients. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Sara and Michael Angel - Rusholme Rd

We started working with Chris after 2 months of trying to buy a house on our own without an Agent, and we found our dream house within 10 days of working with him. First, he was a great listener. He heard what we were looking for, understood our limitations, and our must haves. He gave us a lot of optimism that what we wanted was achievable. Second, he does his homework. Chris previews houses during the day so he can recommend what you should see and not waste time looking at properties that aren't the right fit, and he has spent time looking at the house before he sees it with you, so he can give greater insight. Third, he guides you in the right direction, without being remotely pushy. We were feeling desperate and almost put in an offer on a house that in retrospect was a terrible choice... Chris never told us we were crazy, but he gently steered us in another direction (towards the house we bought and love)

We would (and do) recommend Chris to anyone.

Sonia Jog - Shaw St

You are a lucky person if Chris is in your life. Chris is a kind, honest, charming gentleman. With the buying and selling of our homes, Chris knew exactly when to step forward and take care of the details we did not know how to handle, and when to step back and let us make choices. His guidance through a stressful time was gentle, calm, and very much appreciated.

Chris saved us an unbelievable amount of money. He is a design genius; staging (heavy lifting, cleaning and packing) our house beautifully, and helping us configure our new home. Chris took care of everything, and made the process a smooth one for us. My husband and I both work full time, and with two boys under 2 years, we were beyond grateful for the headaches Chris saved us. I don't think there is a project that Chris couldn't take on, and transform. There isn't a Client who wouldn't be calmed by Chris' expertise, experience and patience. Please believe me when I tell you that Chris will go above and beyond to help you find the perfect home, and the process with Chris will actually be enjoyable.

I recommend Chris to my nearest and nearest, and I recommend him to you as well.

Catherine Pestl - Northcote Ave

They say selling/buying property can be one of the most stressful experiences on the soul. Enter Chris Kelly....my first time Seller mind was quickly set at ease after our first meeting. From the get go I was confident my best interest was on the top of his list. Chris has a tremendous eye for interior design and was able to stage my condo in such a way I was tempted to keep it. To be honest, I should have called him when I first moved in.

With a vast knowledge of the business and negotiations strategies, Chris had my property on and off the market in hours not days, with a seamless deal.

With his friendly approachable style, Chris was helpful in explaining every step pf the process and never grew tired of my relentless questions.

Chris was the first and only Realtor I recommend and will be the first and only I call when purchasing my next property.

Andrew Merringer - Mariner Terrace

Working with Chris was great. He listened to us and asked us the right questions to help us determine what our priorities were. We had never bought a house in Toronto before and we found Chris was a great resource to help us through the process. He didn't just show us houses, but helped us focus on streets and neighbourhoods as well. He was patient and we didn't feel pressured to buy outside our price range. It was clear to me that Chris' goal was to help us find a house we would be happy in. We love our new house.

Emily Hill - Caroline Ave

Chris is not only a committed and determined Agent focused on first class Customer service, but he also is a brilliant Stager. I am convinced he added more than $20,000 to the selling price of my condo with his savvy hands on approach and subtle flair. I highly recommend him...

Corinne Smirle - Wellington Ave

Being a first time Buyer taking the first step in purchasing my home was an experience fraught with uncertainty....until I met Chris. He provided me with such sound advice throughout the entire experience. He ensured I had the right knowledge and comfort on the offer process and walked me through each the steps along the way. Chris' excellent knowledge on pricing and neighbourhoods were invaluable to me. He was accessible for any and all questions, that I had and provided me with much deserved confidence on his expertise. With his support, I know that I made the right purchase in a great neighbourhood.

Patricia Stalteri - Boston Ave

Chris acted as my real estate agent for two transactions in 2010. He helped define my criteria and closely watched the market before finding me a lovely little house in Seaton Village. The house purchase was easy but selling my downtown condo proved to be more difficult as we put it up for sale at the height of summer. I am certain I couldn't have found another agent who would have worked as hard for me in the following two months. Chris did an amazing job staging my condo. He held a number of open houses and worked tirelessly following up on every lead until my unit sold.

Chris's love for his job shows and he works very hard to stay on top of the downtown market. I have recommended Chris to a number of friends and family who have worked with him as well. All have been equally impressed by his knowledge, commitment and sense of humour. There is no question that I will use him again next time around!

Sarah Payne

After my family and I made the decision to relocate to the West Coast from Toronto, we realized that we needed to find an Agent who could sell our home...and hopefully, for top dollar. We started to feel overwhelmed by the all the little details that needed to be tackled, before it was even time to list our home. Chris came highly recommended by a friend who had used him in the past, and we were assured that he would do more than stick his sign on our front lawn, and wait for our home to sell. Chris toured our home, accessed what needed to be done...and then "made it happen." He arranged for various trades to turn our home into a "model home" ready for the market. When I saw Chris rolling up his sleeves and painting our laundry room to create a better "feel" and to ensure our listing date would happen on time, I realized he was either crazy or that he really cared about his Clients. Chris' marketing approach and keen eye for detail made our home sell quickly, and for top dollar. We were thrilled with the results and would highly recommend.

Anthony Lee - Ostend Ave

Chris Kelly is a fantastic real estate agent. He helped us sell our condo and purchase a house and through both transactions he was professional, committed and supportive every step of the way. Not only did he give us excellent service, he also made the process fun even when things got stressful! Chris is a fantastic guy and you won't find a harder working real estate agent anywhere!

Hannah Acab - Markham Ave

When Chris told us the seller had accepted our offer on our first home after only four weeks of searching, we were thrilled, but also a little disappointed it happened so quickly. With Chris as our expert guide in the world of Toronto real estate, we found ourselves enjoying the process of sifting through properties. Considering the market at the time and our budget, we expected to devote months and months of plodding through decrepit, overpriced houses. Chris kept us on track, made the search fun and pleasant, and he found us our home in a terrific neighbourhood. We're thrilled and thankful for his help.

Sara Nunen - St Clarens Ave.

Having decided to become first-time homeowners, our excitement was matched only by our insecurity. We knew nothing about the legal aspects of buying a house, and only slightly more about all of the things that determine property value. In the wrong hands we could have gone wildly astray, but Chris' ability to help us identify the things that were important to us --and his discipline in staying focussed on the same--kept us confident and on course.

We saw lots of houses that would have been right for us, which is when Chris' savant-like knowledge of different neighbourhoods became invaluable. He had a knack for stepping back and looking objectively at the attributes and flavours of different areas.

Chris was the antithesis of the pushy agent. Not only did we never once feel as though we were being pressured into something we were unsure of, but time and again he pointed out shortcomings that in our ignorance we might not have noticed. Bottom line: Chris showed us untold dozens of houses. The house we bought is perfect for us. It was no accident.

Allyson Payne - Havelock Ave

It was a pleasure to have Chris as my agent. He patiently educated me about the market and helped me make the right decision. What's unique about Chris is that he cares about the clients. He understood me and genuinely wanted me to be happy with my decision. His witty sense of humour and his patience made me look forward to the condo hunting trips.

Kleva Gruda - Shaw St.

Chris Kelly was so lovely and helpful when I was looking to buy my first place. Since it was my first time as a buyer, I had lots of questions and he was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.
