"Excellent and timely advice"
Chris has been extremely helpful and supportive through the entire home buying process. As a first time home buyer I was nervous and unsure of the steps involved but Chris made sure to explain everything in detail. He is very knowledgable and thorough, also patient with my many questions and never pushy! He gave us excellent and timely advice, I have already recommended him to friends. Thanks Chris!
"Expertise and passion"
Chris assisted myself and fiance sell our condo and find the perfect house for our growing family. Extremely knowledgeable in the housing market with information at his finger tips that made our purchase and sale a dream. His expertise and passion to assist his clients allowed us to obtain top dollar for our sale and also negotiate a purchase price within a bidding war that secured the purchase but also at a great deal. I would not hesitate to contact Chris with any future opportunities within the housing market but as mentioned above, moving won't be in the cards as our house is exactly what we were looking for!
"Knowledgeable and accommodating"
Chris Shody was a very knowledgeable and accommodating realtor. He was always available to show us new listings which was imperative due to the quick sells that was occurring in the market. We found the house that met all of our needs with his assistance and had an edge on the competition to put in an offer first. He then assisted us to sell our property in less than a week to our relief as we were expecting our first child and did not want the stress of a long listing. I recommend Chris to those looking for a realtor when selling or buying.
"Provided outstanding service"
Chris was an excellent help for myself and my girlfriend when we were buying our first home. He guided us through pretty much the whole process, even giving us great advice during stages that are out of the traditional "agent" responsibilities, like finding a lawyer, and dealing with our lender to make things go smoothly. I feel like I can contact Chris, even after the purchase of my new home for advice and thoughts about home ownership. He was friendly, professional, and provided outstanding service. I would definitely recommend him.
Chris made our sale/purchase a great experience. Very professional, extremely knowledgeable and really showed us that he was behind us 100%. We viewed numerous properties and finally found the house we have been looking for. The office staff were great also to deal with while booking viewings of our sale. Overall this was a great experience and in the future I will be calling on the services of Chris Shody again and again.
"Open and honest"
My husband and I are first time buyers, and relatively new to the city of Guelph. Chris Shody was recommended to us by a friend, and we feel so lucky to have found him! I have met my fair share of realtors growing up, and Chris sets himself apart from the rest. First time buying is not easy, but Chris immediately made us feel comfortable with the process. In a situation where we could have easily been overwhelmed, Chris assured us he would walk us through the process, and that he would work his hardest to find us the perfect home - I've never met anyone truer to their word. Chris was flexible with our schedule, and always made time to show us a variety of houses at different price points. Chris was open and honest about the state and locations of the various properties (a huge asset for newcomers raising a young family), and thoughtfully pointed out things about the houses we might not have considered without his help. We never felt rushed, or pressured with Chris - our happiness genuinely felt like his top priority. On moments we considered settling, Chris urged us to push on, assuring he'd keep working to find us our perfect home. We are so glad he did! Once we found our perfect house, Chris worked vigilantly to negotiate the best deal for us, while ensuring we were making a sound investment. He also provided us with all the contacts necessary to make the process as quick and painless as possible. Today, we are very excited to move into our first home! Chris never shied away from hard work. Above all, Chris' enthusiasm, professionalism and kindness is what made the home buying process a great one - like a trustworthy friend, it was great to have him on our side. Bottom line: I would definitely recommend.
