Chris is an results oriented realtor, putting his clients needs before his. He responds quickly to all communication and answers any and all questions promptly. Chris is always on top of things, and found me a place quickly, and exactly what I was looking for. I would not hesitate to refer Chris to all my friends and family! Thanks Chris!!

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!

Chris was patient, knowledgable and kind, which was great for my wife and I looking to purchase our first home. He was able to meet with us and attend open houses as well as private viewings. Chris clearly had a great understanding of the Guelph market and was able to focus our search to include all that we were looking for while respecting location and price boundaries. We never felt pressured or uncomfortable. Being able to feel comfortable calling, emailing or texting about any part of the home-buying process was a definite plus. When it came to actually formulating the offer, Chris really put our minds at ease as he kept us in the loop with every step and provided his professional opinion while keeping our best interest in mind. In the end we bought the only house we put an offer on and are super happy with the outcome. We will definitely be working with Chris for future real estate transactions and have already recommended him to friends looking to purchase their first home.

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!

(Buyer and Seller, 2014 - 2015)

We found Chris to be professional, knowledgeable, experienced and easy to work with. We had multiple conversations with Chris discussing what are needs and wants were so he had a clear understanding of what it was going to take to find us a new home and sell the house we lived in. As homes became available on the local market that he thought we might be interested in, Chris would update us via email and follow up. He made himself readily available if we wanted to see a property in a timely manner. After a year of searching for our perfect home we deicide to work with a builder. He understood this was what had to happen for us to be happy. We then debated on keeping our home as a rental property and his consultative approach made our decision easy. We were ecstatic when it came for us to sell and Chris ensured this process went smoothly. With his network he was able to arrange for a professional stagger to make recommendations on how to show our home, brought in a photographer who shot our home at the best angles and posted everything on line. With his first walk through his team brought us an offer for our asking price 5 days before it was even on the market. In the current market our home sold for the highest sale price in 5 years in our comparable area. Would we recommend Chris Shody as a realtor? Yes, but only if you want don't want a stressful process, only if you want professionalism, experience, and integrity, and only if you are interested in buying low and selling high! Based on the successful transaction we had wth Chris Shody we recommend his team often.

I have worked with Chris both on a personal and a professional level since 2010 to present. Personally, Chris helped with selling my home and purchasing our new home. Our dream home showed up at 8pm on PCS on a Thursday evening and Chris had an appointment booked by 8:30pm that evening with a showing the next morning at 8am. He was extremely efficient and readily available to help us. Professionally, I am a Mortgage Specialist with the Royal Bank and Chris is recognized by all my colleagues as the "go to guy." he has proven himself through client testimonial's for both his professionalism but more importantly his knowledge in the market. I have worked with many agents in my career and Chris is the only one I continue to refer top level clients to as I know the experience they will have with him will exceed their expectations.

Chris Shody has helped me and my family find our new homes. He is very intelligent when it comes to real estate and always on point. I highly recommend him wether you are buying or selling. Thanks Chris! From The Gancena Family.

(Buyer and Seller, 2015)

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.

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.

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.
