D. Phillips l Seller l Thornbury

"We worked with Mike to purchase our condo at Blue Mountain. Mike was so easy to work with and always so responsive. Being out of town can make a purchase more difficult, so communication becomes that much more important. Huge thank you for the patience and support, Mike!"

J. Braine l Buyer l Blue Mountains

"I’m so happy we used the Chris Keleher team to both buy and sell our home!!! Marcia was such a pleasure and took the stress right out of the whole process!"

M. Ternoway | Buyer & Seller | Blue Mountains

R. Roberts | Seller | Blue Mountains

"Michael is a wonderful, positive and accommodating agent. He is conscientious regarding questions you might have. I very much enjoyed our buying process with him. His relaxed approach and willingness to advocate for your transaction, take direction and support our buying efforts is very much appreciated. He was and is always very accessible and available as we close the successful deal."

M. Hayles | Buyer | Blue Mountains

S. Ebbs | Buyer | Collingwood

"When we decided to sell our Blue Mountain home while we were our of province, we were worried! We needn't have been! Marcia and the entire Keleher team looked after every detail and answered all our questions and concerns to put our minds at ease. The entire process from start to finish - which didn't take long -was seamless. They helped us price it right for the market and took care of any necessary staging details for professional quality photographs and video. Our home sold quickly and we would recommend The Chris Keleher team to anyone considering buying or selling in the area."

L. Collett | Seller | Blue Mountains

It made our decision a lot easier knowing we were moving to a community that was so willing to help people out."

Clearview Home Sellers – Buyers – Georgian Woodlands – McKean Subdivision

We enlisted Wendy Emmett to sell our home and could not have been happier. Wendy went above and beyond to ensure our house sold, and did everything she could to make sure the experience was as stress free as possible for us. In the midst of selling our house we had a family emergency which required us to be away for 3 weeks. Wendy took care of everything and dealt with all the showings and associated tasks that we were not around to do.  In talking to others about their own personal home buying/selling experiences we have not come across anyone who was as impressed as we were with their representatives. We recommend Wendy and the Chris Keleher team to anyone we meet. Thanks Wendy for getting us into our dream home!

“LeeAnn, We wanted to write to say THANK-YOU for an incredibly easy and painless experience of selling & buying a new home! Your support throughout was outstanding, with constant communication, excellent referrals of partners, planning and truly understanding what we were looking for in a new home. Of our lengthy wish-list I think we managed to hit almost everything! Most importantly, you kept us grounded with balanced feedback and never made us feel pressured or unsure of any decision we were making. The digital signatures was also VERY MUCH appreciated, especially with a young family. Thank-you so much for everything, we are very happy to not only refer business to you but encourage people to deal with you! Thanks again,”

M. Sproule, Home Seller, McKean Subdivision, Nottawa

I chose The Chris Keleher Team due to their great reputation and all the exposure they get. I also knew Chris and highly respect him. I was extremely happy with the process from start to finish. The whole team was very professional during every step and really know how to treat their clients. Responsiveness was excellent. They made me feel like I was their only client! I would absolutely recommend The Chris Keleher Team, as they’ve restored my faith in real estate. I would use them again, no question. I feel they really had my best interests at heart. They weren’t pushy or aggressive, and they were extremely confident in addressing my needs. They are a fun team!

We can’t thank you enough for helping us find our new home in Wasaga Beach. You were able to deal with my type-a personality and obsession to detail with all the answers we needed to make an informed decision. We are encouraging our friends to move to the area and will definitely recommend you as the go-to realtor for Wasaga Beach and Collingwood. Thanks again for making the process so painless.

L. Dodd, Home Seller, Nottawa

Dear Wendy – I’d like to thank you for your professionalism, advice & support in the sale of my home. You went out of your way on numerous occasions to keep me informed on showings and were also a big help in the staging process. Your feedback on the various showings proved your worth and I also appreciated all the tips you gave me on what to improve. You made the selling process a pleasant one when I thought it would be the opposite.Your help and expertise were very much appreciated.

Linda Dodd, Home Seller, Nottawa

Sandra and Joseph S., Townhome Buyers, Collingwood

Hi Chris! Thanks so much for connecting us with Wendy, she’s wonderful to work with.
Clearly an agent who’s main goal is to get clients into a home they will be happy with, as demonstrated by her patience and taking the time and interest in learning what’s important to us.
We feel completely unpressured, which is really comforting during this process.  We are in great hands!

Q. Dinh, Home Seller, Pretty River Estates, Collingwood

“I signed all papers with the lawyer last night. The house is clear and clean.
I want to thank you and everyone involved through out the process. You guys are very professional, and I wish there are more realtors like you.
And yes “real estate done differently”

Brock Martin, Seller, Natural Prestige Log Homes

” After interviewing and considering more than one reputable realtor, it was clear to me that Chris was the right person to work with in selling my unique property. The property had been on the market for 19 months before I met with Chris. It was his knowledge of the real estate market in general, and his ability to identify and market to the target demographic in particular, that gave me confidence that he would sell my house. He invested his time and resources to maintain the property when I was away, even planting trees and staging the exterior of the home to make it more attractive to buyers. He understood the importance of a great first impression for buyers, as well as their more practical needs. The home I was selling was a full-scribe log home – the details of which are unfamiliar to most house hunters. Chris quickly took it upon himself to learn the finer details of the workmanship and materials that go into this type of house, in order to educate buyers on the value of the home. I feel this was key to finalizing the sale and justifying the value. Chris sold my property more quickly than I had anticipated (5 weeks) and was able to walk me through the entire selling process, including a detailed explanation of how the new HST would affect the sale.

I will certainly work with Chris on future real estate transactions. ”

Brock Martin, Seller,  Natural Prestige Log Homes

Mary Wayland, Home Buyer, Collingwood

” Looking for a new home in a new town has its challenges. Chris took care of more details than I would expect of a realtor, helping to make this transition as smooth as possible for me. He answered all my questions, advised me on the area, and took care of many of the details I normally would have had to take care of myself. I can simply describe it as value added service, with a personal and comforting approach. Not to mention the Starbucks he brought for morning viewing! Chris’ energy, dedication, and enthusiasm impressed me, and I’m grateful that my friend recommended him to me. ”

Mary Wayland, Home Buyer, Collingwood

Lynne Davis, Home Buyer, Collingwood

” I very much appreciate all the help you have given me throughout this process. Working with you is a pleasure because you listen, you are very professional, you care more about what people want and need, than you do about just making a sale and you get the job done well because of it. Twice I have given you house challenges and you have delivered everything I needed.  You have really helped these transitions to be less stressful for me. I have, and will continue to recommend you to anyone needing an agent. ”

Lynne Davis, Home Buyer, Collingwood

Marla, Vacation Home Buyer, Collingwood/Blue Mountains

“Before we go inside, I would just like to tell you how great your website is. Really, it is what got me here today. I think if it had not been so thorough my curiosity would not have been spiked. The video walk through and detailed pictures made me believe that you had nothing to hide.  OK…now lets see it.!”

Marla, Vacation Home Buyer, Collingwood/Blue Mountains

Vacation Home Buyer, Collingwood

Wendy, I cannot go on enough about how pleased I am to have worked with you on the purchase of our new weekend home in Collingwood.

Being an out of town purchaser was nerve wracking as we tried to learn the various communities in the area and assess which one would best fit with our requirements. From the start you quickly understood what we were looking for and tailored follow-up home visits perfectly. In the end, I think you even ended up knowing before we knew it was what we were looking for. You truly went far beyond expectations in every way.

You quickly gained our trust and confidence which helped lead to the successful negotiations and purchase of our weekend home. Your insightful advice was extremely valuable and I do not believe we would be as happy as we are in our new home, had it not been for you.

Even after we closed on the house, your continued support and guidance in figuring out who to go to for what was exceptional. I quickly learned to accept every suggestion you made without reservation whether it was who to help with flooring, electrical, timbering, pool support, or even figuring out who would drop off wood at short notice, you again continually exceed my expectations.

I know I have said this to you in person but I wanted to make sure to write it down to express again my sincere gratitude for everything you have done for us. We look forward to many happy years in our weekend home and staying in touch with you.

Thank you again for all your help and support.

Ron & Darlene Coulter, Sellers, Historic Snowbridge

” After having our Snowbridge home on the market for four months with no success, we enlisted Chris to take over the sale of our home. We chose him as our realtor based on his outstanding marketing skills and his hard-working approach. His use of technology to advertise a home is unmatched in this area. In our case, he was actually able to reach buyers living in Japan, who purchased our home within a month of listing with Chris. These buyers were evidently drawn in by the extensive coverage Chris provided of our home on the web, including a video walk-through, tons of photographs, a slide show, and more. All of this information allowed the buyers to feel quite confident that this was the right property for them, and that it was worth the flight home to view it. We are thrilled with the outcome of our decision to work with Chris and appreciate all that he did for us. ”

Patrick Harpelle and Kym Chapman, Home Buyer, Military Move, Meaford

Hello Chris, We just wanted to pass along to you what a pleasure it was working with LeeAnn.

She was thorough, informative and helpful throughout the entire process of purchasing our home.  She has made our experience a positive one.  We would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone (specifically for military moves). 

LeeAnn was extremely prepared for our arrival and had the home visits set up in advance and was able to modify the schedule to meet our needs (adding a couple of viewings), she worked late into the evening to accommodate our condensed schedule.  She was knowledgeable about the local market and guided us in making the right choice for a home, she was respectful of our budget, personal situation and future goals.

LeeAnn is very attentive while dealing with all of our paperwork and ensured that all parties involved (lawyer, home inspector, mortgage broker and other real estate agents) were kept in the loop and provided with the appropriate paperwork in a timely manner.

We look forward to seeing LeeAnn upon the closing of our home in Meaford and would definitely work with her when we list our home for sale in the future.”

Home Buyer / Seller, Collingwood, Mair Mills / Creekside

“The Chris Keleher Team did an amazing job. They really went out of their way to handle the difficulties surrounding our sale so that we could be less stressed about it.We experienced amazing communication, and the team members work extremely well together. Pictures were amazing, the Team was thorough and knowledgeable. Great use of social media for advertising. We think the team’s biggest strength is its web marketing and also negotiations. We would absolutely refer the team based on our experiences.”

Amanda & Jason Podniewicz, Sellers, Village of Feversham

Our house had been on the market for 14 months, with little activity, so we knew we needed to change our approach. Based on his successful sale of our neighbour’s home and his excellent marketing plan, we decided to hire Chris to sell our home. While we had only had two viewings in the previous year, once Chris was representing us, the activity increased. And not just simply with viewings by buyers who might be interested, but with qualified leads from buyers who new the home well, from viewing the website, and were genuinely interested. He brought in a stager, at no cost to us, to help us present our home in the best possible light. We found it very easy to work with Chris, and it was evident he would put in the extra work and time necessary to get the place sold for us. We were very happy when we sold our house in just 3 months after listing with Chris.

Amanda & Jason Podniewicz, Sellers, Village of Feversham

M. Amormino, Seller – Tree Streets, Collingwood Real Estate

” I chose the Chris Keleher Team because of your enthusiasm, demeanour and professionalism. 

You stood our because of your attitude. At our first meeting you promised to deliver the same level of attention as any listing you had (we were close to the bottom of price in your listings). The Team delivered in every aspect, quick to my emails. Courteous when scheduling open houses and walk throughs. Marketing (pictures, literature, etc) was done to a level that I was very proud of. It is personal to list your house and your Team represented it with the utmost respect. All of my emails were responded to with promptness. This being the first time I was selling my home I didn’t really know what to expect. After going through the process however, I couldn’t imagine what would have been missing. 

The biggest strength in my opinion was the experience of the Team. Knowing what to highlight, steps in the process, negotiations. All of these things made the process less stressful for myself. Which was very important to me. 

His website seemed suitable to navigate all of the listings and had a very professional, but not overly busy. I believe the team could benefit from the use of Instagram. Its a social media platform that promotes pictures, keywords and uses filters to enhance the images.

I have personally referred the Team to many people. I did this due to the positive experience on the whole and the specific examples I listed above. 

The one thing they did better than anyone else was make our listing feel like their most important one. The level of personal attention was beyond our expectations. 

I was throughly impressed with the entire experience. I would recommend the Team to anyone. Believe that if the Team continues to strive to give the customer service I received to all clients, their future will be bright. “

Eva & Anthony Johnston, Sellers, Dove Tail Log Home, Beaver River

” Chris has sold two properties for us and both of these properties would normally have been hard to sell due to location, type of home and price point. What we found with Chris was that he actively worked to sell our listings, which we found set him far apart from other realtors! As every realtor would, he listed our homes on MLS and held open houses, but this was only the beginning. Chris addressed each of our listings differently, depending on its unique needs and attributes. He invested his time and resources into making our real estate plans come to fruition. Chris thinks outside the box, which was reflected in his marketing strategy, his promotional material was fresh, exciting and eye catching. Chris did not just tell us what to do in order to sell our properties; he actually got his hands dirty to make it happen, and went far and beyond of what we expected from a realtor. Anyone that is lucky to have Chris as a realtor, will not be disappointed. He does not just list a property…he actually sells it!! ”

Vijaya Kisson, Seller, Collingwood, Admirals Gate

” It has been my privilege to work with Chris in selling my vacation property. After being unsuccessful in selling the property with another Realtor, I was impressed by Chris’ extensive and thorough marketing plan. After our first conversation, I knew he was the realtor who would successfully sell this property! The one thing I noted in our interview was his comment about not just listing my home, but actively selling it.  These days it is clear that more needs to be done than a simple MLS listing with a few pictures. His presentation of my home online was outstanding and generated a lot of serious interest. Additionally, since I am out of town, Chris took care of so many of the details a homeowner would normally be responsible for. He managed the hiring and supervision of contractors to paint my home, he provided staging of the property at no additional cost to me, handled the purchase of materials, and more. I was grateful to have a ‘partner’ in the selling of my home, and would certainly recommend him to others. ”

Vijaya Kisson, Seller, Admirals Gate

Home Buyer, Collingwood, Tree Street

“Chris came highly recommended by a business owner in Collingwood who I respect. Chris made himself available during the very limited time I had available to look for a property.  He lined up showings at all the potential properties, keeping my parameters very much in mind. His professional and honest opinion about the pros and cons of each property was very helpful. He was mindful of my time and budget and handled our search in a friendly and expert way.

The Chris Keleher Team made the whole search and purchase process very easy, especially since I was shopping for a property while living out of town, and only able to spend a limited amount of time on the process.  It is a big investment so I needed to get it right, without making multiple trips and spending an excessive amount of time. 

Chris and members of his team always responded very quickly and accurately to our inquiries.The Team’s biggest strength was market knowledge and the ability to work quickly to complete our deal.

I would definitely refer the Team to anyone searching for property in the Collingwood area because of the positive experience I enjoyed.”

“LeeAnn, thanks for all your hard work & the quick sale of our cottage! We are still surprised that we had so many offers. Many thanks to yourself, Chris and theTeam for the great photos/video and all of the staging work.

Roman & I picked the Chris Keleher team because we felt they were ahead of the crowd, the videos and photos speak for themselves. It was well worth it to use the Chris Keleher team and I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling their home or cottage.”

R. Marshall – Buyer – Cranberry Village, Collingwood

” Just a note to thank you for connecting me with a REALTOR® like Wendy Emmett for my home in Collingwood. I was running out of time in finding somewhere suitable to move to. She found me an almost perfect little spot in Cranberry Village; a very quite area that’s free from traffic noise. The cost of the condo was within my budget, but I had expected some interior updating. There will be minimum corrections to be made on the residence and I can update it at my leisure. I just wanted to thank Wendy and your entire Team for a job well done! Take care and thank you. “

Deb McCurtain, Buyer – Cottage/Home Wasaga Beach

” I contacted Chris about a listing I saw on the internet. He was very informative, always sending me knew updates of houses, and talking to me as well via email, others would just send me pictures and no personal  touch, not thinking l am serious. He was very responsive and kind, looking out for my interest not his wallet. He was willing to make time to show me a home. He was different from agents I have worked with in the past by being honest, wanting to find me a home not a house. He would always send me houses and talk at the same time, unlike others would just send stuff but not make it personal. I would refer Chris Keleher to others for all the reasons above. “

Deb McCurtain
Buyer, Wasaga Beach

Heather and Mike Kestenbaum, Sellers – Cottage at Cameron Shores, Blue Mountain Real Estate

” We chose Chris Keleher because we heard he was good.  That he had an excellent knowledge of the area, and took a very hands-on approach and was very successful. Chris stood out as a REALTOR® because he was always accessible, listened to our concerns, was flexible, easy to talk to and extremely honest.  

He worked very fairly with both the seller and the buyer and his marketing skills were amazing.  We sold before there was even an opportunity to take advantage of all his skills! 

Our property was on the market for a year before we met Chris.  He was very optimistic that with his knowledge and skills, our place would sell in no time.  And it did!!

Chris was the perfect agent.  He made sure things were in order before a ‘showing’ and stayed with the inspector throughout the inspection.  He puts all of his energy into his work, and it shows in the results he obtains.

It is difficult to say where Chris’ greatest strength lies.  The website he created was amazing, and his marketing knowledge was right up there.  During the negotiating period, we never felt pressured.  He was honest and fair.  We felt that we could trust his recommendations.

If we ever find anyone in our area that is looking to buy or sell, I would tell them they’d be absolutely crazy to use anyone other than Chris.

The one and most important thing that Chris did better for us than any other agent has ever done, was to sell our property quickly and at the same time get us an extremely reasonable selling price, all with minimal stress. “

Michelle & Allan Bishop, Buyers/Sellers, Collingwood Waterfront Properties

” We met Chris because he was the listing agent on a property we were interested in. He stood out to us because he was easy to get along with, and made us feel no pressure. 

Throughout the process, he was very accessible and attentive, and had great communication and follow-up skills. Chris always had a lot on the go, and he proved to be an excellent multi-tasker. We felt like we were treated fairly and honestly throughout the whole transaction. The transaction went smoothly, with no hiccups at any stage. We enjoyed the extremely friendly service. Chris’ responsiveness was very good at every stage. Even after the deal had closed, the awesome level of service never stopped. 

Chris is a true professional. His level of communication really impressed us, and his online property videos are the best we’ve seen. The whole transaction was a pleasure. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone thinking about real estate in the Collingwood area.

Thank you, Chris! You made it a pleasure. “

K. Clarke & M. Dillon, Sellers – Georgian Meadows, Buyers – Creekside – Collingwood Real Estate

” The Chris Keleher Team have supported us through several real estate transactions over the past 5 years.  We have worked closely with both Chris and Julia and have found both to be highly personable, knowledgeable, and professional in their approach. Working as a tag team, they were always available to answer questions, provide advice and feedback and were extremely flexible in their efforts to work around our busy schedules. Both were highly supportive throughout the process of selling / buying our homes; both on a professional level and on a personal level.  

They worked hard to understand our individual preferences and did not hesitate to offer personal opinions and advice when warranted. We were very impressed with the marketing campaign that was designed for our most recent sale.  The presentation of our home on the website was outstanding.  We could not have asked for better advertising and received many comments on how nicely our home was presented by The Team. When it came time to negotiate Chris offered support and feedback while standing strong to ensure our interests were well represented.  Negotiating is one of Chris’ personal strengths, and something you want at the table when you are buying or selling such an important asset.

We have known Chris personally for over 7 years and have always appreciated the energy and passion he brings to everything he does, whether that be real estate transactions or community outreach.  The Chris Keleher Team is a reflection of the man himself. The characteristics that come to mind are highly energetic, professional, personable, knowledgeable, and supportive.  

We would not hesitate to recommend Chris or his team to anyone seeking a highly qualified real estate service team. “

Jon and Sheila Durzi, Sellers – Thornbury Home, Blue Mountain Real Estate

” A great referral. Sheila and I first started with a different brokerage that was not as marketing savvy as the Chris Keleher Team. This turned out to be exactly what we needed. The service was friendly and Chris’ opinions were honest. 

The Keleher Team’s attentiveness and flexibility in helping to find our new home was most rewarding. Being ready to view homes at the drop of a hat in a fast pace seller’s market, turned out to be rewarding under a stressful time line. 

The representatives were very helpful and communication was key. If he could improve anything, Chris could return phone calls more promptly during our selling phase, but we can also be a pain. 

All these were a positive with Chris and his team: Negotiation, Market Knowledge, Multitasking, Web Marketing. I have recommended the team to others because of the professional service. In a location that marketing and advertising for sellers is very important we think the Chris Keleher Team had a step up on other brokerages. What is one thing that The Chris Keleher Team does better than other agents we’ve used in the past? Marketing. “

Mark & Jane Gibson, Buyers – Creekside – Collingwood Real Estate

” When first meeting Chris at an open house we were immediately impressed with his refreshing no pressure, positive, helpful attitude. Our experience with Chris, buying a home in Collingwood, has proven him to be honest, hard working, very accessible and knowledgeable…..all while keeping a sense of humour….. He has gone far above and beyond our expectations, always having our best interests in mind. Chris has been extremely professional and yet truly caring compared to other agents we have dealt with.  He is ALWAYS there to answer any questions and offer advice. 

We would definitely recommend Chris to family and friends….in fact we already have!!!! “

S. Min & S. Harding, Buyers – Georgian Woodlands/Nipissing Ridge Blue Mountains Real Estate

” Scott and I did not initially plan to use a buyers’ rep assuming we would be better negotiating on price with agents who could double end the deal.  After seeing some places and meeting Chris, we felt he and his team listened to and understood what we were looking for.  

Being based in Toronto and sporadically in the Collingwood area, it made sense to have someone keep an eye on the market on our behalf.

We really appreciated Chris’ open communication style.  He was forthcoming with his opinion on market and property values, while allowing us to make the decision on how we’d like to pursue opportunities.  He and his team were very responsive and made the process of buying an “out of town” home very easy for us.

In hindsight, we should have asked for a list of market comparables before moving forward with an offer.  However, given the short timeline and the price at which we were able to secure the deal, this was not a major issue.

From our viewpoint, market knowledge, responsiveness, and communication are the team’s biggest strengths.  While I don’t generally rely on an agent’s website when determining who to use, I did have a quick look and found the site to be very impressive.

We have and continue to recommend Chris to our friends.  I feel he understands and represents our demographic well.

We are used to buying and selling homes in a very different market (Toronto). It is difficult to determine if it was the market conditions, or agents who affected the experience but our purchase in Collingwood was refreshingly straight forward and simple (communication, negotiating tactic, logistics of sign-backs etc.). “

Leanna & Joe Franco, Sellers – Silver Glen, Collingwood Condos, Buyers, Wasaga Beach cottages

We are finally winding down, all moved in and hopefully can start enjoying our beautiful home in Wasaga.

Joe and I are truly indebted to Julia for the following:

  • Her Efficiency to detail was over the top
  • Her quickness to questions
  • Her accuracy to questions
  • Her diplomacy to situations
  • Her charisma was delightful

Julia made us feel comfortable when asking questions never made us feel pressured. To sum it up, Joe and I absolutely loved working with her and the world would be a better place if their were more Julia’s in it.

Chris, we will definitely be happy to recommend the Chris Keleher Team, your professionalism, marketing skills, attentiveness and communication skills far surpasses the call of Duty. Joe & I would love to have you and Julia over.  I will call once things are all in order which should be soon. 

Thank you so much for all your teams work and help, it certainly made our transition easier and less stressful. Look forward to seeing you both. ~

Mary Keough, Buyer/Seller – Collingwood Condos in Dockside Village.

” What do you do when your next door neighbour is a real estate agent and you want to sell your home? Watch how he works. Not only how much time he dedicates to his work but also what kind of a family guy is he. Total dedication to both. Above and beyond is his dedication to his community.

Chris knows Collingwood and Blue Mountain Real Estate very well and was a wealth of knowledge for us. 

Chris knew what we were looking for and sent listings before on the market. He is totally connected and on top of the pulse with real estate in Collingwood and the surrounding areas.

He sold our property in less than 5 days. 2 offers in 2 showings.  His team staged the house and in less than a weekend when were done. Sold over asking. Do I need to go on?

Trust Chris and his Team to make it work for you. ”

” Chris and his team provided excellent customer service, exceptional attention to detail, outstanding internet marketing, fine tuned negotiations and a high level of knowledge in every aspect of the selling and buying processes. 

After an extensive search of the real estate market, we selected Chris and his Team to sell our Collingwood property. Chris’ creative use of property videos, coffee table books, along with his high level of motivation, sense of humor and professional approach, convinced us that he would find a motivated buyer for our home. 

Our thoughts and dreams about a new waterfront home on Georgian Bay have come true, thanks to Chris Keleher and his Team. We highly recommend the team and will be referring others who require this outstanding service. 

Thanks for all you have done for us in our search for a new piece of paradise…. “

Dana and Jill Mitchell, Buyers/Sellers – Blue Mountain Condos

” About 4 years ago we were interested in purchasing a chalet at Blue Mountain.  After some initial research on real estate agents we identified Chris as a well connected, proactive agent who understood the market and the properties that met our needs.  We contacted Chris that evening, heard back immediately and began our in-person search 2 days later.  

Chris understood the market so well that by the end of our first weekend of looking we had made an offer that was exactly what we were looking for.  From the offer through to posession process Chris was more knowledgable and results driven than any previous experience we’ve had buying and selling properties.  

Two years later we decided that our family had outgrown our 2 bedroom ski-in/ski-out chalet so we reached out to Chris again.  Chis helped us understand all options (without having to spend weeks doing so) and helped us narrow down a home that was perfect.  With Chris’s help we acquired this property (similar process to last time) and listed our existing Chalet.  Within a few weeks Chris was able to time a multiple offer and sell our chalet for the highest price of any unit similar to ours in our chalet complex.  Chris’s strengths in negotiation and property positioning has saved us tens of thousands across these 3 transactions. 

We have since investigated looking at a family home in Barrie and have worked with Chris and his team – Outstanding service, response, knowledge, networking with other agents and help as always. 

Since working with Chris we have referred him to all of our friends looking to buy in Blue Mountains/Collingwood.  Over the years have bought/sold 5 properties (outside the ones mentioned above), Chris is head above any of the others we’ve worked with a consider him a realtor for life! “

Why You Are The Georgian Triangle’s Best Realtor!

Every so often I get a testimonial that completely overwhelms me. This testimonial sums up how I work with clients. Thank you for the thumbs up!


I know we’ve joked about the reference letter I’d give you once my condo at Heritage Corners was sold, but in all honesty I wanted to convey to you the reasons why the title is justly deserved:

Knowledge. While I have owned a recreational property up here for over 15 years, and have enjoyed the skiing lifestyle over that period of time, having the intimate local knowledge of the market was absolutely essential to my making a good buying decision. With your local knowledge and expertise, I felt that I made a very knowledgeable buying decision.

Experience. It goes without saying that having the experience in dealing with local agents, each with their own idiosyncrasies, is definitely an advantage. You know through experience what approach will work and what won’t. Skillful use of this knowledge, I believe, resulted in my successful purchase of my new log home on Pioneer Lane.

Empathy. I know it sounds strange but I really believe that the ability to listen and to understand your client’s needs and circumstances, enables you to better serve their interests. I felt that you were interested in, and appreciated, my unique circumstances and you were always willing to tailor your marketing strategy to address my needs.

Trust. Sometimes, as purchasers, we think we know what we want (or can afford) but were really out to lunch until we’ve gone through the process of viewing property after property. In reality, we probably don’t know what we want until we see it! I’m sure this could be a frustrating process for any realtor, and yet you always reassured me that, with patience, the right property would show up.

Personality. I don’t need to emphasize that when you’re selling or buying a home, it’s an extremely stressful time. I always appreciated the fact that, no matter what, you always had a smile on your face or that you were always willing to spend that extra time to answer whatever questions I had. I always knew that you were balancing a million priorities, but I never felt that I wasn’t one of them.

Going that Extra Mile. I know it sounds trite, and everyone stakes claim to doing it, but you put the words into action. When I advised you I wanted to put in an offer on the way to the airport flying out to Scotland, you were totally nonplussed with being left to handle everything in my absence. You made it seem like this sort of thing happened every day, and I left town knowing that I was in good hands. Never once did you imply that my strategy was completely crazy!

I truly thank you for making the next chapter of my life a reality. Without your knowledge, expertise and support it would not have happened!

I’m glad I took the chance and rolled down my car window to inquire about that house in Strawbridge you were showing last year! If I hadn’t rolled down my car window none of this would have happened, which just reinforces my belief in fate.

I wish you and your family all the best for a healthy, happy and prosperous future.”

” I chose Chris as my realtor based on his successes in selling other homes, which like mine, had sat on the market for some time. Chris impressed me with his innovative marketing tools, including software to create a 3D mock-up of a finished basement for my property. This added a whole new dimension for buyers to consider, which they may not have been able to envision on their own. I knew Chris was really working for me with all of the extra marketing and prospecting he did for my property. Chris is young and hard-working, and I appreciated his dedication to getting my property sold. “

We met Chris at one of his listings, and right away we knew he was the realtor we wanted to work with. His approach to real estate is progressive and refreshing. Rather than pressure tactics, Chris seeks and shares important information to help make intelligent real estate decisions. The log home we recently bought was one with many unique features, so we really didn’t know much about caring for and living in the home. Chris took the extra steps to research and explain all pertinent details so that we could move forward with confidence. We couldn’t be happier with the home we purchased and with the service Chris provided to us. We are happy to have stayed in contact with Chris and his family since working with him.
