Our natural choice when choosing a real estate agent is definitely Chris Owens! Chris is a very knowledgeable, experienced agent. He exudes professionalism with a definite sense of humour! We relied on his eye for detail and never felt any question not important to ask. With today's' market being hectic and fast paced, Chris was always there for us. He had changed plans a few times to accommodate us.

He pointed out things we never thought of and we definitely appreciated his opinion! We have had the pleasure of using Chris Owens' services a few times now and certainly have not been disappointed! He put us at ease with his expertise and made us feel like we were his only clients. He was never too busy for us.

Chris is a giving and caring individual that I have the pleasure of knowing. I admire his work ethics and his obvious caring attitude to get the results needed. Trust me, if you are looking for a trustworthy, reliable, straightforward agent, Chris Owens is the man for the job! Thanks Chris!

I met Chris Owens while touring the townhouse my son Matt had purchased through him. After hearing the IC story of Chris waiting until after midnight to present Matt and his fiancee Michelle's offer to the Seller, I said that's the type of agent I want to sell my house. I talked to Chris and asked him if he could recommend an "aggressive" agent in Scarborough to help me -- I said I want someone just like you. He said he would be glad to help me himself.

I did the fix-ups he recommended (he even helped me purge some of the 30 years of accumulations). The listing came out on MLS on Saturday and over the weekend there were 18 showings. Monday morning he told me we had two offers; he had gotten the best price from both the buyers. We worked with the higher offer and signed back with only a change in the closing date. SOLD FIRM IN 3 DAYS

Chris was professional, extremely helpful and answered all the questions I had. I would recommend Chris to anyone who wants an experienced, knowledgeable Real Estate agent.

Thanks for your assistance. Everything has been very smooth in the preparation and the sale of our house. I consider this a very successful sale! We could not have achieved a quick and market value sale without assistance from you and the interior designer Oen), Your negotiation skills to close the deal and Jen's incite into what work needed to be done to bring it to sale condition, especially the colour scheme for the house were critical to this success.

Thank You

Dear Chris,

As you will recall, I contacted you in 2004 regarding investment properties. I had ideas and you advised differently. Your suggestion to purchase individual townhomes in a co-op setting sounded strange to me until we thought it through. Having a single co-op fee per unit covered property tax, building insurance and maintenance (exterior), security features, garbage pick-up, parking issues, etc. and all with a single monthly bill.

I started purchasing units in 2004 and bought a number in one complex. This allowed me easy comparisons and easier overview. To date I have found that my tenants have paid down the mortgages while the units increased in value providing a tremendous nest egg. Your advice was highly appreciated. I have received compliments from financial advisors as to the wealth accumulation I have accomplished in a short eleven years. Rent has increased, property value has increased while mortgage balances have plummeted.

This note is simply to thank you for your professionalism and good advice over the last eleven years. Be assured that I will recommend you to any potential investors which may cross my path.

Sincerely,
- Case and Nancy Jansen

Chris Owens is from Durham Region and has an extensive knowledge of the region and the people living here. I felt very confident working with a real estate professional of almost 30 years in the area.

Chris takes a very personal approach in working with his clients. He enjoys people and takes the time and interest to put the client at ease by answering all questions and explaining procedures in a straightforward manner. Chris took an active lead throughout the entire sale of my house, from bringing in an interior designer, a photographer, to potential buyers. I felt at all times that I was working with one person who was a phone call away. I recommend Chris Owens unreservedly as a real estate agent who works well with people and sincerely enjoys his work. I appreciated this while selling the family home after 25 years.

Hey Chris Just so you know I so enjoyed seeing you yesterday after so many years and doing a little catch-up. I could have talked to you for hours, so much to chat about. Hopefully we will have that opportunity. You are the same old Chris, as charming as ever! Thanks so much for doing such a great job with Tami's "John Street" purchase. It's very exciting for her and crucial that she have a true caring, honest professional and I knew she would with you. The property has lots of potential and character. I think it will be totally awesome when everyone works their magic. Brian will be a busy boy!!!! I very much appreciated the large chunk of time you spent with us yesterday out of your busy schedule to view the property. Bringing me a tea and flowers, so nice! I love my flowers, so classy and kind of you to be thoughtful. I have them in a vase at home and will enjoy them for many days to come. Take care, so good to see you and mucho gracias again for your thoughtfulness!!

Hi Chris,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance and handling of the sale of our property at 409 Gibbons, Oshawa. The speed and which the property sold as well as the very satisfactory sale price speaks to your skill and professionalism as a realtor.

We appreciated your recommendations during the process of preparing the home for sale and your guidance when entertaining offers; the results speak for themselves. It has been a pleasure having you handle this sale for us and we have been more than pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.

Regards,
- Lisa Bianca

Chris has been my real estate agent since 1999 and helped me several times with selling and buying homes over the years. Buying and selling can be so stressful and confusing, but working with Chris on either transaction has always been a positive experience for me. Chris knows his business inside and out, and makes the process as easy as possible. What sold me on Chris was his friendly and personable nature and that he was unlike any salesperson I have ever met. Even when the deal was closed, he remained in touch and available to answer any questions or concerns I may have had. I also like the fact that I can turn to him for recommendations for trades people, handymen, or other business to help me maintain my home. Chris will continue to be my #1 Real Estate Agent (ONLY real estate agent) and I highly recommend him.

Hi Chris, You did a fantastic job for us! Our realtor experience with Chris was 100%! Chris not only did an outstanding job finding us our dream home and negotiated a great deal for us, but also handled the sale of our existing home, which sold in five days! My husband and I both really appreciated the personal attention Chris gave us. He explained the process every step of the way and gave suggestions for a smooth transition into our new home. He still checks in on us from time to time and has given us valuable advice for upgrades in our new home. He is fantastic realtor and we highly recommend him!

After a successfully concluded real-estate deal I felt I have to write this letter to you, expressing my satisfaction.

We lived in Courtice and planned to retire in BC. That was 5 years ago. Naturally it involved the sale of our house. As I am a “methodical” person, I have interviewed several real – estate Agents. By recommendation I also called Chris Owens. He came out to look at the property. After talking to him I liked his approach. He sounded knowledgeable, professional, understanding and earned my confidence. It turned out that I was right and he fulfilled all the things he professed to be.

After we moved, he kept in touch and when the time arose that I wanted to sell another property in Oshawa, I did not have a problem selecting an Agent. I called for Chris’ help. He worked hard on my behalf, as he did before and found a buyer in reasonable time who eventually has bought the building.

I don’t only live in BC but actually went on an Ocean Cruise while the deal was in progress, so we had to conduct the business “electronically”. To simplify things, I felt confident to appoint Chris temporarily a signing Officer to my Corporation. It expedited things and the deal was concluded properly and in time.

I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Chris Owens for anyone in search for a smart and trustworthy professional.

Sincerely yours,
- J. I. Adamkovics

When my father passed away, I was left with the overwhelming task of clearing and selling his house that he had lived in for 50 years. I had never sold a house before and my friend highly recommended Chris who had sold her house a few years earlier.

Chris was very friendly, helpful and patient. He understood all the emotions at play when selling a childhood home. He made great suggestions for improving the house.

When it came time to put the house up for sale, I was very grateful for Chris' knowledge and years of experience. Due to all of his hard work and preparation, the sale of my dad's house went very smoothly. In the end my family was thrilled that we sold the house for $111 000 over asking. A precedent setting sale for my father's neighborhood! Chris Owens is an excellent real estate agent and I highly recommend him.
