His knowledge of the area was very helpful as we had not previously lived in Chilliwack. He was very personable, attentive to our wants and always there to explain the process if we had any questions. We would definitely recommend his services!
!! Very patient and not at all pushy. He really cares and wants to find the right house for you. And if he’s selling your home he’s never too busy to answer your questions. He always tries to get you the best price possible!!
He is super kind and knowledgeable, and was always there to answer any question I had. Chris was very professional and personable and I trusted him right from the start. I could easily tell that Chris truly cares about his clients, and wants nothing but success for them. If you want a realtor that is genuinely a good/kind person, and willing to go the extra mile for you, Chris is your guy. I couldn’t imagine buying my first home with any other realtor!
We are very happy to have you as our Realtor because you had done a great service to us. For this, we don't hesitate to recommend you to our friends and people who would like to buy their home.
He explained the process so there would be no unknowns. He reviewed current sales and timeframes. To me what is most important is connecting throughout the process keeping me in the loop and that he definitely did. Great transaction.
I love this office, I would choose this office every time! The managers and owners are constantly looking for ways to help us REALTORS improve our business by staying on top of changes in the market and technology with classes and in our weekly meetings. The office staff goes above and beyond to support our agents, they are amazing! The agents who work here are professional & friendly. Royalt Lepage is 100% Canadian owned, this makes me very proud to be a part of this amazing company!
We got top dollar for the place which sold quickly for full asking price. Gloria was easy to talk to and always reachable. She went out of her way to keep us informed and well-advised throughout the process of clearing subjects, signing documents, and so on. If you are looking for a competent, pleasant, easy-to-access realtor, we highly recommend Gloria Santa Cruz.
We want you to know your always welcome in our home if your over our way. Knowing you over the years and doing business with you has been a pleasure. Wish you all the best in the future.
She gave us an honest version of Chilliwack with a personal touch. Gloria gave us exactly what we were looking for in the budget we had. She even stood up for us when it came to overlooked issues. She was more like family while looking at listings, putting herself in our shoes. Accessing her at almost all hours made us feel important. We are telling everyone about her and her awesome service.
They were right! She is skilled, professional, and a very hard worker! She worked many long evenings for us, and did an awesome job! We can't wait to move in to our new home (that she found us - and it's perfect for us)! We have already told all our friends and family about her!
He took his time to educate me "what to look out for" and has gone the extra mile to find answer to my question.
And, we appreciated his attention to detail. We had a good experience, and if we still lived in the lower mainland we'd definitely work with him again.
He continues to honour our requests even when the deal is done. Shane has also sold 3 other residences for our family and they too have been impressed with the process. The part of the process I admired the most was the story of our daughter’s move to acreage in Mission. On the day of the move to their house, Shane was there to greet them and to make sure all went as planned. He even went head to head with a bear that was foraging around the house! As well when home inspectors came to fulfill their part of the contract, Shane was there to supervise. I would highly recommend Shane as a realtor as he has been able to convince us to put our trust in his sales process. Thank-you Shane!
He's so knowledgeable about each area we asked about. Provided plenty of useful and accurate information. He was so caring and thoughtful in each home search and questions we had. As well as always being incredibly responsive to each call, email or text. We would highly recommend Chris for selling or buying. We are extremely pleased by Chris and appreciate whole heartedly all his dedication to our search.
He went out of his way to help us find a home and was always available to answer our many questions. He helped make buying a home as stress free as it could be. I would highly recommend using him as your realtor you can!
They helped us find and purchase our first investment property in Chilliwack. We found Chris extremely knowledgeable, approachable and pro-active. He also saved us from entering into a bad deal and helped us find the right property that fit perfectly within our budget and checked all other boxes. We highly recommend Chris and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. Chris and Rochelle, we would love to work with you again. Thank you for going above and beyond for us!
She was available for us at anytime of the day and answered all of our questions immediately. She worked really hard for us during our renovations for preparing to sell, suggesting subcontractors that we needed, and they were amazing and reasonably priced. We listened to all of them and got above asking price within 18 hours of the house going on the market. Gloria Santa Cruz went above and beyond not just being a realtor, she was there every step of the way from beginning to end until after. Not only did she sell our house 18 hours after it went on the market, she was also our realtor that helped us find our brand-new home and was patient with us during the whole process. She was fast and efficient and knowledgable! I couldn't have asked for a better realtor and I will definitely recommend her in the future and use her again.
We’ve been luck enough to work with Nick twice, buying and selling in two completely different markets. Both experiences Nick made the process quick and easy through his commitment and responsiveness to every situation. He listens and cares about his clients, and understands what our homes mean to us. We are truly thankful for all your hard work and dedication Nick! You are #1 in our books!
We are seniors and she has really done an excellent job of selling our home and helping us purchase our next home! She kept her committments and promises - way, way beyond her promises! She is motivated, fast and gung-ho in every way! She was always on time for appointments, returned our calls and kept us updated and informed throughout the process! We definitely recommend Gloria to anyone looking to buy and or sell!
We would recommend him to anyone!
He was personable, professional, and worked hard to get me the best property I could afford. Looking forward to our next deal together. Highly recommend!
She was knowledgeable and supportive during the sale of my home which provided ease of mind for me while navigating through the real estate world.
He was patient and respectful. His team are awesome: from photography/drone video operators to office/colleagues. I would recommend Chris and his team before any other realtor in the Chilliwack area.
She took care of me and guided me through every step of the process as I was totally unfamiliar with a real estate purchase. Her negotiation skills are second to none! She is a tenacious advocate for her client. She made me and my desires her number one priority. She made my dreams come true! Now I know what it's like when a Realtor is working for me! I highly recommend Gloria to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent. She made the process very easy and seamless! Thank you so much, Gloria!
She made our first time house buying experience enjoyable and stress free. She is very knowledgeable when it came to the history as well as specific details regarding the areas around Chilliwack where we finally found the right urban modern home for us. Outside of being our buying agent, what we enjoyed the most was the sound advice she gave us when we were deciding and choosing between properties, and in the end, her advice ultimately helped us decide which house to buy and we couldn’t be any happier with our decision! We appreciate Gloria’s honest realtor perspective on every property we viewed, and she gave us the vibe of it’s not all about making a sale for her, but more on actually helping you find the “right” home for you. And I forgot to say that Gloria gives very good advice for free when it comes to managing finances especially for young first time home buyers as well! Thanks for everything Gloria!
Gloria was raised on FFI and appreciates the value of the community closeness like we did! Gloria extended herself and was available first hand any time I needed her. She did a wonderful job in staging and preparing our home for wonderful photos that did my home the justice it deserved. She will work hard for you to get the best dollar and not back down to ensure her client is satisfied. We fell in love with her glowing personality and her positivity! Thank you Gloria for your hard work... our home sold in 7 days and you made the process easy!!
it is never easy losing the ones you love and it is even harder to let go of their possessions. But from the day I signed up with you I knew I was in good hands. Even though we only had the two offers, you and I were always on the same page when we were negotiating with the buyers. If I didn't understand the process you were always there to put it into simpler terms without making me feel stupid. Thank you for your patience when it came to my funny but inept abilities to scan and send documents back to you. Hopefully I will never have to do that again, but if I have to I think I can do it now, although I don't guarantee it. You are a great realtor Steve and the next time we have to deal with a realtor they will have a hard time to measure up to you.
I have recommended him and Royal LePage to several friends. Above and beyond expectations when buying my home. He recommended a great Lawyer and Property Inspector. He handled all the unknowns and even made me a list of what to do next and followed up. Such great service.
Shane also helped us with getting information from the property manager and strata which was very helpful.
Gloria worked in a friendly, efficient and professional manner as she arranged the listing, open houses and showings that enabled the quick sale. We would highly recommend Gloria to potential home sellers and buyers.
His professional commitment to helping, caring and being on-call for me matched no other realtor I've met. He was there for me the whole process from start to finish and as a first time buyer, it was a relief! I can't express how happy myself and my family are after a whole year of looking. He's a true leader and father--I can happily say thanks to Chris & his team, My family has found the place of our dreams!
My goal was to find the right fit for me while having a brokerage with a solid reputation in the market guiding me. I brought with me over 25 yrs of sales and marketing experience in other fields and I knew it was going to be critical for a successful real estate career to partner up with a brokerage that check every one of my expectations. Having interviewed many of the brokerages in town – some more than once – and sitting in on team meetings and interviewing various agents, I found RLP Wheeler Cheam to be the right fit. I looked past the fancy offices and massive realtor base and dug to the heart of what made each brokerage operate. Walking through the office and meeting many of the agents at RLP, I could see the professionalism the agents had and they were and still are willing to share their knowledge with you.
I never had to wait more than an hour for a response from him but it was usually much less. He is a great negotiator and I would absolutely use him again and will be recommending him to everyone I know.
We sold our Chilliwack house in no time with excellent negotiations and just recently our Abbotsford house within a day! Chris is very personable, professional and a hoot to deal with. Our third house sale in Vernon was by a realtor he referred to us, also a very professional and friendly person. Way to go Chris, go to the top. Your type of honesty and professionalism is what we need in government. Cheers
After having three other realtors come by and give me quotes on what I should list my house for, I was feeling discouraged and downright poorly about my house. I bought my house when I was a lot younger and never had the money to pay for renovations but wanted to move back to the island to be with my family. The other realtors put down my house and suggested we list it for quite a bit less. Kyle right off the bat noticed the qualities of home old character home and saw the potential about it. He understands older homes and has a fondness for them and I really appreciated that in his service. I have another property in Chilliwack and when it comes time to sell I would 100% use him again.
Denny guided us through the process and was extremely professional and helpful with all aspects of the sale. He answered all our questions and concerns and went the extra mile to ensure we were satisfied. Thanks so much, Denny!
Super professional and knowledgeable. Will definitely use again in the future.
He patiently explained the ins & outs of buying a home as well as navigating Chilliwack. He is so knowledgeable about the area as well as real estate, professional, prompt, always available, easy to talk to & seemed to anticipate questions before I asked them. He quite frankly held my hand from beginning to end.
He has a no nonsense, honest approach. He will give you his opinion and recommendation but will take into account your needs and requirements. He genuinely cares about getting you what's best for you, and won't pressure you into something your not comfortable doing. Can't recommend highly enough...Thanks!
The market was cooling very quickly and his advice saved us significant loss. We were on the market for 8 days and sold while still making profit on the property.
I did appreciate your concern and the way you dealt with the interest buyers. Patti and Diane also expressed their gratitude and felt that you looked after my interests very well indeed. I hope that Hally and Bill are settling into their new home and will enjoy it as much as David and I did. I hope too, that you will drop by Edenbank and see where I am now situated. Still among boxes, but eventually it will be home! I am glad that David was able to buy this place with me. I know he would have been happy here. Good luck with all your future endeavors Steven, and believe me when I say that you are an excellent salesman with the perfect temperament to look after your clients. With my grateful thanks!
Would definitely recommend. We gave him a list that outlined a needle in a haystack and after a year of dedicated searching finally got it. You won't regret hiring Chris
I would recommend him for his knowledge, professionalism, perseverance, and determination. He just does not quit until the job is done
He is very professional yet very friendly and easy to work with. He is not pushy at all and made us feel at ease while showing us many properties. Any questions or concerns we had were quickly answered or dealt with. Even after we moved into our new home, Chris was in contact to make sure we were happy and everything was going smoothly. I highly recommend him.
We didn't like the house but we asked him to help us with our house search because he was not pushy and we found him very knowledgeable. He knows the lower mainland really well and really took his time to find the perfect house for us. He was always available to talk and scheduled all house viewings promptly. We've been recommending his ever since we completed our purchase. This is our fifth house and we used a different realtor every time but we will be sticking with Chris from now on. Give him a try and you won't regret it.
Being a younger couple he ensured we had all the resources and information we needed to buy our first home together. When the time comes to buy/sell we will be using Denny. Would highly recommend him to anyone we know who is in the market for a great realtor
His knowledge, friendliness and honesty make him easy to trust and to work with. It is obvious that he really enjoys his job too, which made the experience a pleasant one.
He made a great impression on us and we felt comfortable to have him as an agent for both the sale and purchase of our home.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the area. He has been very cooperative, informative, and patient. Thanks for all the help Chris!
He was very kind and very knowledgeable and when I asked questions he was always there to answer them right away. I would recommend Shane 100%. Thank you Shane for all your hard work
We had been looking for over a year now to find the right home and we couldn't have asked for a better and patient agent!
He was really helpful in dealing with issues that came up between the acceptance and closing. His after-sale service has been great. I was new to town and he has helped me find high-quality professionals in many fields of expertise. He is a great agent
Very professional and amazing personality. Kept us informed through the whole process and was very responsive when we needed to contact him. I would highly recommend Chris and would definitely give him my business in the future.
I will recommend Shane to my friends and family, He is the best.
We stumbled upon his page by chance and he reached out letting us know he’d be available to answer any questions we may have or if we would like more information on a listed property. Not knowing anything more about him, decided to read a few reviews once we were ready to begin actually viewing properties in person. The reviews all came back great and this is just another one for that column. We were very lucky to end up with Chris. Very genuine, professional, and knowledgeable. Was always available to answer questions. We will definitely use Chris’s services again in the future
He knew all of our special features, and upgrades, and made sure other agents were aware of them as well. He was able to sell our house in 1 day for our asking price! Would recommend him to anyone.
It was a pleasure working with him. He was very well mannered, friendly, professional and easy to get in contact with. His is experience of the Chilliwack area was great. He didn't pressure you and his negotiating skills were very helpful. Thank you Chris for the smooth sale and all your great help! We would use your realtor services again!
She is honest, genuine and reliable and responds immediately to texts/emails/calls. She worked hard to sell our condo even doing a showing during Christmas and she helped us buy a house for UNDER asking!
He walked us through what we needed to get done to sell and recommended some great ideas. Kyles photos and 3D scanning of your place was unreal and we received a lot of great feedback on them. Kyles communication is awesome and we could get in touch with him anytime. He also helped us buy our new home and did great job negotiating and got us a great price.
She is prepared, extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. My parents are seniors and wanted to sell their home, Gloria is the only person I trusted to lookout for their best interest. She made sure they got top dollar for their home and treated them like her own family. My father fell very ill during the process and the empathy she showed demonstrated her ability to humanize the experience and put my parents needs first. I live in another province and even with the time difference, Gloria always kept me up to date. Her work ethic and commitment is second to none. I have very high expectations of the professionals I work with and I would not hesitate to recommend Gloria to anyone looking to sell their home.
Shane is always available to help in any way possible!
Although in the end we took our house off the market for personal reasons Shane was understanding and supportive of our decision. If we are ready to list our property we will hire Shane Setter again.
Even in this difficult real estate landscape, we were able to count on his expertise to see us through. Would definitely recommend him to anyone!
From professional appraisal of your property, expert quality videography and great showmanship, Shane does it all to get top dollar for you home. Don’t hesitate if you want your home sold, Shane is the real deal.
He proved very knowledgable and efficient, with a patient demeanour to ease us through the process. We would recommend him to both purchaser or seller without hesitation. He also continues to offer support. Thanks Shane.
He was literally working day and night with keeping me up to date on my purchase. I would highly recommend him
He was very easy to communicate with and always made sure we were kept in the loop. He was professional, timely, and very personable. Nick went above and beyond in every aspect of our home purchase. Nick definitely stands out compared to other realtors we have used in the past
I ended up choosing the one where I found the best tutor. As I began building my business, I realized how technology and new tools were being introduced at a fairly rapid pace. It was then that I noticed the amazing education program that Royal LePage Wheeler Cheam Realty was offering. This was headed by a very ‘tech savvy’ and most awesome sales manager! Moving to Royal LePage Wheeler Cheam was one of the best decisions that I made to help me build & grow my business. The environment here is so comfortable to work in, and yet always being challenged to grow. You will not regret making the choice, to make Wheeler Cheam Realty, your brokerage.
! Any buyer or seller would be lucky to have him on their side. We were limited in time to find the perfect home for our family and Chris made us feel like we were his first priority. He took the time to really understand what we were looking for. It was a real pleasure to look at different options on the market with him and he wasn't hesitant to share his thoughts and recommendations based on his experience and amazing knowledge of the Chilliwack area. We were guided and supported through every step of the process. Chris not only treated us like valuable clients, but as friends! He is a very professional realtor with integrity and a wonderful person. We found the perfect home for our family! We highly highly recommend Chris!!
He is very knowledgeable. Very friendly and insightful. He never pushed us into anything in particular and his interactions felt natural.
Going back nearly 50 years in various cities and provinces. He has been as helpful about my move and downsizing as with the selling and buying.
He was quick to answer any questions we had and ensured the process was smooth from start to finish. I would certainly recommend Chris to anyone looking to sell their home.
The training that has been brought in is second to none. In a profession were you are challenged daily with new situations having the backing of an amazing brokerage & brand like Royal LePage is needed to succeed in this industry. The management team is always accessible and they really care about your success. If your looking for a place to succeed in Real Estate Royal LePage should be your first stop.
He was super personable, responsive and got us the result we wanted- and in record time! We would most definitely recommend him to our family and friends.
When my elderly parents reached out to Gloria about moving, she immediately sent over many listings that were a perfect match to my parents’ needs. She was extremely patient when showing them places, and when they found the perfect match Gloria worked efficiently to get the best deal and moving dates for them. She worked well with the mortgage broker and lawyer to get the deal done within tight timelines and recommended an excellent cleaner and carpet cleaning company to get them ready for the move. Once my parents moved into their new place, Gloria immediately got their former place ready for listing with beautiful staging and had many viewings lined up on the first day. Gloria got multiple offers, and an accepted offer (above asking price!) on my parents’ townhome, within a few days of listing, and ensured the place remained secure and move-in ready for the new owners. Gloria communicated to me (the daughter) throughout the process to ensure I could also help my parents. When my parents were finally settled in their new place, Gloria presented them with a generous housewarming gift that they now enjoy every day. Gloria is thoughtful and works hard, always in the best interest of her clients. She is confident in her ability to find the best fit for her clients’ needs. I will continue to recommend Gloria to all my friends and family as the best choice for their home purchase and sale. Thank YOU Gloria for your excellent service! My parents are so happy in their new home and it's given me piece of mind knowing they are in a safe place. If my Dad had a computer he would be shouting your praise all over social media!
After our first meeting with Nick, we immediately felt reassured and confident that our goals could be met when both selling and buying. Nick's professionalism and knowledge was very helpful, as was his honesty and flexibility. He was not only a phenomenal realtor during the experience, he also became a friend over the many visits and months we spent together. We are so very fortunate to have worked with Nick and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy!
His motivation and excellent customer service makes for a rewarding experience. Thanks, Shane, for another highly successful business transaction!
We moved from White Rock to Chilliwack and he made the whole process super easy and unstressful for us as first time buyers. I would definitely use Nicks services again when we sell and/or buy again!
The managements support has been amazing and the training is second to none. Our office is constantly innovating and providing an opportunity for growth. The office environment is great, and we have an excellent social network with lots of fun. The years of experience in this office has helped me become a top realtor in the office and community
He is very personable with the utmost professionalism. He is very knowledgeable without being pushy. when he gives you the advice you know it's with your best interest in mind. He is very honest and flexible with his time. Denny works very hard to get you a fair deal with both buying and selling. I recommend Denny to anyone looking for a realtor
Having appraised 1000's of homes to meet qualifying for mortgages, loans or legal purposes, I've had dealings with unprofessional Realtors. One becomes slightly dubious about having a realtor to assist in selling your valued home. Shane was direct, willing to listen and be flexible. After seeing his You Tube Video of our home, that sealed the contract. We hired the best. Staging was perfect.
As new home buyers, Sophie was beyond helpful and patient, walking us through every step in the process in detail. She was honest and transparent in every interaction which is rare and truly appreciated. It was really important for us to feel a connection with our real estate agent and Sophie’s warm and positive demeanour made that easy! We learned quickly in the process just how genuinely committed she was to not only finding us a home, but the RIGHT home. We had a laundry list of “must haves” and Sophie quickly learned and prioritized each and every one. We can’t say enough good things and we will continue to use Sophie and recommend her to family and friends for any real estate needs!
Far exceeded any expectation of support and his ability to advertise in a variety of different ways made a big difference in elevating our exposure to the market. Very happy we found him!
Knowledgeable of all transactions and follows proper procedures. We will definitely use him again in future transactions. Thanks, Denny!
From beginning to end, Shane’s hard work and dedication to us during this process was evident and felt throughout. We’ve found a lifetime realtor in Shane and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
Gloria is extremely professional and community minded - she went the distance to make sure my needs were met. Her dedication and love for the business is clear, her sole purpose is to make sure you are happy and that shines through at every step. Gloria made my experience this past year purchasing a home a breeze, her attention to detail allows clients to breathe easier through the process, believe me nothing is ever missed. I would not hesitate to recommend Gloria to anyone. I know that whenever I need a realtor Gloria Santa Cruz will be my realtor of choice.
I always felt you had our best interests at heart and were very professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our friends or family in the future. Thanks again.
She is extremely knowledgeable about her work and did an amazing job at finding me the perfect home.
For other people it might not be a big deal, but for us it was BIG!!!! We are moving to a gated community from a single house. We decided, it was time to retire the lawnmower. We cannot say enough about Gloria Santa Cruz. Her Caring, Professionalism and Passion for working for and with us was fantastic. Whenever we had questions, she was always only a phone call away and right away called back. Way to go Gloria!!!! We couldn’t have accomplished it without you. We will definitely recommend you to others!
He continually checked in and offered real estate advice, staging and personal help throughout a long grueling process. He was profession and he genuinely cared, definitely putting people above properties.
He was very honest about what he knew about the areas, the property's etc. We were very specific in what we needed and his patience and knowledge made it so easy it didn't feel real. We have been in our home for 2 months now and are SO happy with the whole experience! Would HIGHLY recommend Kyle to anyone! Thank you Kyle for being so great!
His knowledge and personal skills, matched with his respect from developers makes a perfect combination to get the job done. He also has been very helpful with any questions I have had, from Strada to recommendations for local amenities. Thanks Shane on helping me with my purchase.
Will definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone I come across in need.
He was always available when you have questions and he took actions quickly and found us our perfect home.
He always gave us all the information we needed and helped with advice whenever we felt we needed some extra help. We very much appreciated him as our selling realtor and would use him again in the future.
I felt comfortable and at ease with Shane. Trust is always a huge part of selling and buying real estate and Shane earned my trust 100%. I would highly recommend Shane Setter.
He was very quick in responding to our queries and helped us find the property we were looking for. He never pushed us for anything and gave us time to think.
I myself have bought and sold two homes with Denton. He sold a place for us when we moved out of town. He took care of all the details so even though we were 22 hours away we didn't have to worry about anything. When we decided to move back to CHILLIWACK he was our guy. He had places lined up for us to see that we're right in the range of what we wanted. It only took a day of looking to find the right house for us. It's perfect. You see that's what we wanted from a realtor. A person who listened to what we wanted who was fun to be around but serious about knowing all he could about our perspective home. He made our experience pleasant and fun not stressful. He was very good at knowing if we were interested in a house or not. He didn't try and waste time selling us the most expensive house but the right house. So for us what we wanted in a realtor was someone who was efficient, cared about what we wanted, honest, fun, worked diligently to find the right house for us, didn't waste time on place where we weren't feeling it, and most important for us he took care of all the details and took the stress of selling and then buying a home. Four years later, I called him because I had a bat that flew in my house. He came and got the critter out. Not your usual Realtor thing to do but you know, that's Denny. He genuinely cares about his clients he's honest and friendly he makes you feel comfortable and takes the stress and fear out of buying or selling a home. I wouldn't use any other realtor cause he's better than the best. Thank you Mr. Friesen for all your care and service. Denny is a very low-pressure, (who can work very well under high pressure!) calm, Realtor that makes you feel very confident in his abilities and awareness of the market. I've dealt with a lot of realtors over the years and I feel Denny is one who stands out strongly because he's got YOUR best interest at heart.
My husband and I were buying our first home together and were clueless, Nick gave us a lot of good info and really made us feel like we were making a good choice with our condo! I would highly recommend Nick to anyone looking for a realtor!
Finding places, answering all of my questions promptly and lining up everything I needed to do including a great mortgage broker! Highly recommended!
Gloria brings a very positive atmosphere when buying/selling, and turns every negative into a positive (especially during the pandemic). Gloria always answered my questions as soon as possible. I can't say enough how hard Gloria works. I will use Gloria for future real estate needs, and recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.
He was always available and bent over backward to make sure our deal closed on time. A great agent and person - I'm confident in recommending him to anyone considering a move.
If I ever had a question or concern he was there to take care of it for my wife and I. His communication skills and attention to detail were immaculate and response times were very quick. I haven’t dealt with many real estate agents in my life but after dealing with Chris I am glad to know that I won’t have to. Thank you so much for all that you've done.
What separated Sophie from the rest was her calm demeanor and no pressure attitude. Even though she's relatively new in the industry, she carries herself with a lot of poise and maturity. This was my very first home purchase so I was very nervous, and did not care for any salesmanship. I just wanted someone who had my best interests in mind, and the assurance that I'm not getting screwed over or taken advantage of. I decided to go with Sophie because I felt very comfortable, and she made me feel like I was a close friend as opposed to a client. Being a first time home buyer I needed advice as opposed to a sales pitch. Sophie guided me throughout every stage of the process and made sure I understood what was going on. I did my homework and my own research, so I knew beforehand what I wanted to get into. Understanding this, Sophie kept a lookout for new listings and messaged me every time something new came up. The condo I ended up purchasing was found by Sophie. When we went for the viewing she was very honest and straight up. The condo was listed below market price for the purpose of creating a bidding war. Therefore, it was going to go above the listed price. She called me the night before the listing agent was accepting offers to bring me up to speed and walk me through the ins and outs of putting in an offer. She told me the pros and cons of having certain subjects when putting in an offer, and let me make my own decision on how I wanted to proceed. In retrospect, had Sophie not called me that evening I would have lost out on the purchase and probably be still renting today.
We are first time home buyers, everything felt a little overwhelming at the start, but Shane took the time to guide us through every step and relieve that stress. He was extremely informative and experienced, providing us with any extra tools to connect online and follow the market. Always open to answers any questions and would meet up in person to go over the fine details. Again, a big help when you're brand new to this. Not only is Shane knowledgeable in this field, he is personable and friendly. Pleasure to work with and would recommend to anyone. Will be using him in the future again :)
He was accepting of calls after business hours, had a professional photographer take pictures (wonderfully done). He also had each room measured professionally, with a laser so each room had the right square footage. Chris had a drone flyover to get aerial views of the house, property and also the neighborhood. I would highly recommend Chris Gale as an amazing realtor for all he did for the sale of our home.
Chris was very knowledgeable about the Chilliwack area and I 100% trusted his guidance and opinions for home selection. As a first time home buyer I couldn't of been in any better hands! Thanks Chris!
Shane was able to provide all of the answers to our questions while considering a purchase. Shane is a very likeable guy and I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
We found the move was so much easier with the kindness and support of great people like you and Don. Thanks fr the dinner certificate.... we're going to the Best Western tonight to celebrate!
Always looking out for my best interests, easily reachable, knew the area well and most of all treated me with the utmost respect! Always kept his eye out for me and kept me in mind when new listings would pop up. He made me feel I could rely on him to always point me in the right direction!
I had very little to concern myself with during the purchasing process as Gloria made it very painless! I enjoyed having her help me with the purchase and she made the process easy! I know she would take good care of anyone I sent her way!
She was thoughtful, kind and considerate. And even after our move she continued to show an interest in our needs and concerns. Therefore, we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else in this kind of endeavor. Respectfully,
An excellent agent. He was so quick to respond. He was thorough, knowledgeable and professional. He really cares about his clients. We would highly recommend Chris to our family and friends.
Throughout the entire process, his responsiveness and reliability made me feel as though I was a priority client. I look forward to working with Chris in the future!
He helps out in selling our property and gave us contact agents for our Vancouver Island purchase and our Okanagan sale. Chris helps out in what ever information we require. He is very easy to do business with and I would highly recommend him and have. We have had several realtors before but he is the best.
He researched the area and market value for townhouses and got our place sold way faster than I thought it would.
He helped clean the yard and offered handyman services for fix ups prior to selling. He was able to get an excellent price for my home in a short time. And his rate is reasonably affordable!! He did a fantastic job of presenting the house ! He went above and beyond to be helpful with the sale of my home! I highly recommend Shane Setter for a realtor!
He went out of his way to find me what I needed. Se was professional and knowledgeable. If you want to find an agent that will build rapport right away I highly recommend him.
Answered all the questions we had. Super helpful, would recommend and use again!
From the moment we met Shane, we knew we were in good hands. Shane took the time to listen to our needs and preferences and showed us properties that were within our budget and met our criteria. Throughout the entire process, Shane was patient, knowledgeable, and always available to answer our questions. He walked us through each step of the home-buying process and made sure we understood everything. When we finally found the perfect place, Shane went above and beyond to help us secure it, and walked us through everything we needed to do to finalize and close. Thanks to Shane, we now have our first home! He made the entire process stress-free and enjoyable. We are so grateful for his expertise, professionalism, and kindness. If you're in the market for a new home, we highly recommend working with Shane!
Kyle sold my wife and I our first new house in 2009; it was a show home for the development in the area and we fell in love with it. Most new homes always sell for the listing price plus tax, Kyle managed to get $1,000 off the listing price - that was a bonus!. Last year Kyle spent a lot of time with us looking for a new home and we shy'd away when Covid started. We just started looking at houses again over the past couple months and we're cautiously looking for that right house in this crazy market. What I like about Kyle as a realtor is his ability to observe our likes/dislikes in a home and he find houses to look at that fit our preferences (especially considering how my wife and I are so different in what we want in a house). I know my wife will agree on that perfect house one day and working with Kyle has bee great!
From the beginning to the end. So professional, kind, knowledgeable (the list goes on and on). My nerves were high as our last experience with another realtor was not so good and Chris absolutely reassured us and put our faith back into realtors. He is top notch. Would highly recommend him to everyone we know. Thank you for everything!
Through the buying process he was patient and helpful. He communicated every step of the way to ensure we were comfortable before moving forward to the next. Highly recommend!
He made sure to communicate everything to me clearly. I was very impressed with his professionalism. He made selling my home easy. Chris will be my first call when I sell again.
He was very knowledgeable and knew what we were looking for. He kept us up to date with relevant postings and advised on whether show showings were over or undervalued. He was determined to get us the best value.
He checks all the boxes, knowledgeable, responsive, hardworking, and friendly. He showed me a variety of homes to help me find the one that was right for me. At no point was he in a rush to sell anything. His main concern was to ensure I found what was right for me, and we did.
Professionalism that creates confidence in the customer of this Realtor's abilities. Informative, so the customer can make the right decision for them. Confidence in getting the job done with efficiency. Slap that sell sign on Setter!
He kept us updated frequently through out the selling of our home and the purchase of our new house. We would definitely refer and use Chris again
He shared his marketing approach and plan from the beginning to the end including pictures, video and dates of open house and dates to accept offers. He was thorough, and provided insight and advise, when presenting buyers offers. I recommend Chris as a realtor for a positive and stress free experience.
He helped us prepare our home with updates and staging to maximize our sale price and helped us locate the perfect home for our family and goals. Kyle consistently gave us his opinion and related his reasoning to wishes we had told him and gave us tangible examples of similar homes for resale and pricing. Kyles communication is excellent. I told him my preferred style of communication and never had any trouble getting him on the phone.
Speaking from my experience of working with her as a Mortgage Broker on transactions, I see a skill level, work ethic, and professionalism that are rarely matched in the industry and she adds a great amount of attention to achieving the best results that are in the client’s best interest.
I am proud to share with you what they had to say about their experience of having me as their agent. Dealing with Denny Friesen was a very satisfying experience. Having bought & sold many homes over the years, we found him very knowledgeable, ethical & able to answer all our questions. We were never pressured to make any choices & are very satisfied with what he found for us. He stuck to our want list & as a result, we are completely satisfied & would recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell in this area.
We had a property to sell, and, although we had utilized various Realtors over the years, we signed with Denny without hesitation. Denny is a calm, organized, funny, professional Realtor who gained our trust immediately. Denny cares about his clients and treats them as he would a friend. In essence, he does what he says he will do!! Denny came to our home, took lots of awesome pictures, which showcased our property to its fullest advantage. The listing was up and running in a short time, and the calls started to come in. Our home was sold within about a week. This is not only due to the fact that it was a highly desirable house, but more importantly, it was properly marketed! Denny then oversaw the purchase of our current home. Even when there were minor hiccups in the process. Denny always helped us stay confident and took great care of us. Now, after time, we still keep in touch with Denny. He is the best Realtor I have ever encountered after selling and buying over 20 different homes over the years. That is saying a lot in my estimation!! It is with our wholehearted pleasure that we recommend Denny!! He will absolutely not disappoint!!"
The app provided with his services was instrumental in finding properties in our areas of interest, as it allowed us to browse properties at our leisure. Overall, he really cared that we found the right house for our needs.
He was professional and helpful every step of the way. He went out of his way to make sure we realized the outcome we desired. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
! He is a Very Caring Person ! He is very easy to talk to, and is very interested in what your thoughts are. I would Highly Recommend him to all my friends.
We appreciate all you have done for us. You will always be welcome to come into our place to visit and have coffee
He is knowledgeable, professional, engaging, and tech-savy. It was a pleasure to just leave the sale of mom’s property in his capable hands. The weekly updates were much appreciated as was his quick response to the questions I had. I highly recommend Shane and will definitely reach out to him next time I plan to buy or sell real estate. Thanks, Shane!
Because of her great negotiating and tactical pricing skills, we won the bidding war in this crazy market. The whole process was so easy and fast that it took a week for it to sink in that we actually got a dream home for our retirement: perfect location, perfect layout for us, and perfect architectural design for us. It is real. Not a dream. She is extremely personable and pays a lot of attention to details, so we don’t have to worry about anything. She is also very knowledgeable about different neighbourhoods in Chilliwack. So this really helped us to make a quick decision in this crazy market. After we put down the deposit to complete the sales contract, we immediately phoned our former neighbours (who are very well known in Chilliwack) who recommended Gloria to us, to thank them and to tell them the great news. We are so thankful to them for so strongly recommending Gloria to us. We will no doubt recommend her to anybody who is looking for an agent. Thank you, Gloria!!!!
I would trust him 100% & will deal with him again & have passed his name onto friends & family. He will find exactly what you're looking for.
He was very responsive with requests from myself, and I believe the seller during the process.
He went out of his way to help us find a home and was always available to answer our many questions. Being new to Chilliwack Chris showed us around the town with a lot of valuable advice on nieghborhood. Chris also is very knowledgable when it comes to market conditions and formulating strategies to put an offer and how to price the offer. His strategy of bully offer was instrumental in ending our house hunt and landing the house that we wanted in a very handsome price. I would recommend Chris to the max Rating submitted April 29, 2021
Chris helped us beat out another offer on a place we love and we were very happy with the advice and guidance he gave us. Would definitely recommend him!
I would recommend Shane to anyone who’s looking for an honest and passionate professional. His kindness, great advice, and knowledge are much appreciated. Until next time!
Going back nearly 50 years in various cities and provinces. He has been as helpful about my move and downsizing as with the selling and buying.
Shane has been amazing in all aspects of this process. We are going to sell Our house now and re-purchase another home and Shane is our guy! There are no words to express our gratitude for everything he’s done. Thank you for looking out for our family and our future investments and for being so understanding and knowledgeable! Let’s do this again!
There were a few hoops we had to go through together. Once the subjects got removed we were smooth sailing.
Thank you for all your effort Kyle
We would definitely recommend him to others. When we move again we will be giving Denny a call! He is friendly, helpful, motivated, organized, and fun! We always looked forward to viewings with Denny as our realtor!
He knew what we were looking for and did not waste our time looking for something that was not for us. He also did not pressure us into buying and settling for something we did not love. Glad we went with Chris and I highly recommend him.
Explained everything along the way and answered all questions promptly. He made this sale/move stress free! I have and will continue to recommend Chris to everyone I know!
She had great advice as far as preparing our place for sale and was very easy to communicate with. I have 3 young children and was feeling overwhelmed- she understood my stress and was there for me. She was down to earth and honest. I could text or call her at anytime and received quick responses. She was great at getting us the most for our townhouse (MUCH more than we had originally thought) and also getting us a good deal on a detached house. I would definitely use her again.
Relaxed, knowledgeable and honest. Will continue to use Chris in the future! Chris was able to close our sale during the month of January which is not an ideal time to sell. Well done Chris!
His experience – combined with modern day social media tactics, and state of the art marketing tools – clearly put him in a category above the rest. Throughout the process, Kyle was transparent in sharing his strategies and past experience, which ultimately led to selling our home. On numerous occasions during walk-troughs, Kyle pointed out flaws, potential issues, and layout problems that we definitely would have missed. And probably most important, Kyle is a skilled negotiator. Negotiating price is not for the faint of heart, but this is why you need a great Realtor. Kyle pushed the envelope (outside our comfort zone), and it was worth it. We never felt pressured to buy. If it was important to us, that was all that mattered. He prioritized COUNTLESS walk-troughs for us, filtered out the time wasters, and we found a great place
He is very in-tune with his clients needs, and follows their lead. He was always very prompt in getting back to us, including during his family's vacation. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone or to use him again for the next move.
One of my Royal LePage colleagues, Denny Friesen received a floor call a few months ago from an elderly gentleman who wanted to sell his home. After chatting with him on the phone for some time he drove over to the property to do a CMA. What he found was a man who was "trapped" in his own home. Apparently, over some time this man's home had been overrun with drug dealers and squatters and because of his age and small stature was unable to fend them off. Denny took a look at the home, which had been destroyed, priced it properly, and got it sold within 2 weeks. So far a typical Realtor transaction, however, Denny didn't stop there. He helped the gentleman find a proper senior care home and worked with the bank on putting his money in a high-interest account. He paid for 2 giant garbage bins to be delivered to the property and enlisted the services of myself, another Realtor Wayne Temple, and a friend Paul. The four of us cleaned out the entire house from top to bottom. Garbage that was piled waste high, food rotting in the kitchen and closets. Endless amounts of needles. On a few occasions, I had to leave the house to get some fresh air because my lunch almost came up. Thankfully the people who are buying the house are gutting it. Now this elderly gentleman could have paid for this stuff on his own. He could have afforded to hire people to come and clean out his house. But Denny saw a man who was confused, scared, and didn't know what to do and he took it upon himself to take care of him. As of 2 days ago, he is in his new care facility, and the police have arrested one of the squatters who took over his house. I would like to give thanks to Denny for his kindness and for showing compassion to someone that needed help. For going above his "fiduciary
I would highly recommend Shane for your real estate needs.
He really understands handling homes in gated communities and on native land. His advice was great and he kept me well informed and the process was so easy! I chose Kyle because I had used him to buy my home 7 years ago and he was wonderful, so I knew I would be in good hands to sell my place as well. And it sold in 4 days!
Gloria was pleasant and had a great sense of humour. Coming from Ontario, Gloria worked extra hard due to the distance and time changes. She included our daughters, helped find us a home, did a virtual tour for us, and kept us apprised all the time. She woke up very early just to communicate with us first thing in the morning, and kept our daughters up to speed. No difficult challenges she was faced with stopped her as she was able to overcome those obstacles. She was proactive and kept the deal together, so that we could have a home. She lined everything up for us so we didn't have to. She made it happen! She worked extra hard for us, and we are very thankful for her. We will not hesitate to recommend her to all we know looking for a real estate agent. We wish her all the very best. God bless.
Our office not only has REALTORS® that are professional, helpful, trustworthy and caring but we are like a family. Our manager (Kyle) always has his door open for help and/or advice. I have had offers to go to other offices but I wouldn’t even consider it as this is home for me.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Chris Gale team. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks again Chris for a job well done.
Denny was very helpful in making the whole process easy. Would highly recommend Denny & would definitely use his services again if the need arises
Chris was always knowledgable, friendly, punctual, informative, tactful and diplomatic. I have no hesitation recommending Chris and will certainly use his services again if I ever need to buy or sell another place. Thanks Chris.
She was extremely friendly and personable, and was available at any time to happily answer any questions we had. She encouraged and helped us with prepping our home to sell, and went above and beyond with helping us stage the place, even lending us bar stools and some decorations to put the finishing touches on. By the end, we had a beautifully staged home with gorgeous photos, and Gloria negotiated a price that we were very happy with! When it came to buying, she was again exceedingly helpful, always available to answer questions, make recommendations, and take us to look at places we wanted to see. She was always ready with advice and made sure we were happy with our decisions every step of the way. When we decided to put in an offer, she absolutely went above and beyond, making sure to read all the paperwork thoroughly, and point out and follow up on any issues she found. She worked tirelessly right to the end to make sure she was getting us the best deal possible. Gloria is sweet, funny, and very tenacious, and she is obviously passionate about helping her clients get the best experience and results possible. We have had a wonderful experience, and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy in the Fraser Valley!
It all went well from start to finish, exept we have'nt moved yet. That will be stressful. Shane had ours sold in less than 24 hours . 2 weks later and he helped us find our new- way better home. Thanks Shane!
Not a pushy salesman. Listened to what we wanted. Extremely helpful. Very knowledgeable of the area and housing market. Great guy all around. Thanks Shane look forward too doing more business. -
He was professional, helpful, available and very friendly. We are not experts in this field and put us at ease to be able to have an expert to rely upon.
She is professional, efficient, trustworthy, fun, honest, and very easy to talk to. She was so approachable that her calm demeanor made me feel relaxed and taken care of. I could call her anytime and she was there for me! She was fantastic at marketing the Open Houses, and did such a great job at making guests feel welcome! She was also great during the transaction process and kept me up to date at all times! She has great customer service skills and is very efficient! I highly recommend Gloria Santa Cruz when buying or selling real estate! Thank you, Gloria!
Always made herself available, even on weekends and holidays when the deal was in the balance!
I have been with this office from my beginnings. In the 19 years I have worked for Royal Lepage I have been asked countless times if I would consider moving to other brokerages in town...My answer is “I am Good where I am”. I know this, for any realtor thinking of making a change or is starting their career you couldn’t pick a better brokerage. Their commitment to helping you succeed through extra training, continuing education & management is 2nd to none. The wealth of knowledge in the office for newer realtors is a no brainer, everyone in this office is easy to approach or work with. “Is the grass greener on the other side”? I will never know.
I hooked up with Gloria Santa Cruz who I found to be professional, kind, and very honest. I found Gloria very comfortable to work with and she was always available. She worked really hard for me, found me my home this past November, and got me one heck of a deal! The whole process was very smooth and pain-free after my offer was accepted. I am a BC homeowner! Thanks so much, Gloria, I couldn't be happier.
He facilitated the successful marketing and sale in difficult circumstances, in which the sellers were at long distance, and the house was empty for an extended period during the Coronavirus. In addition to advising on staging and showing it to best advantage, Chris drove by and monitored it regularly, and even did some garden tidy up. We always felt comfortable that it was being managed properly, and ultimately got a good price for it. Thank you Chris!
Very diligent in understanding his client’s needs and tailoring his service to said needs. Also has very poised demeanour, makes working with him a pleasure. Would absolutely recommend.
Your knowledge and expertise made the process smooth and easy to understand for us. It was very comforting to know exactly what we were signing for and the details and risks of our deal. Thank you for all your quick responses to questions asked and making first time home buying stress free. Would highly recommend Chris to all my friends and family.
At Royal Lepage this is one of the elements of the Company I value most. The leading edge technical tools Royal Lepage provides are imperative to me to reach the pinnacle of our industry. After 34 years I have nothing but praise and admiration for this great company and will be with them forever.
Hard working, knowledgeable and friendly. This guy knows his stuff. Will use him for all future transactions. He is a real estate agent that goes the extra mile and gets the job done.
Professional to a fault, Kyle listened and then provided valuable advice when solicited. His knowledge of the neighborhoods, houses and market was key to our success.
He goes above & beyond for his clients with honesty & integrity. He cares about his clients needs & happiness & develops a business relationship for today & for the future.
Never hesitated to answer questions and was quick in response at all times. We sold for beyond our expectations and that is thanks to Chris and his amazing efforts to sell our home.
He was extremely responsive, listened carefully to our wants and wishes for a place and delivered!! He showed us a variety of options to look at and helped us to successfully get what we wanted!
Gloria made the entire purchasing process easy and seamless. She went above and beyond her call of duty helping me every step of the way. She has excellent customer service and communication skills – keeping me apprised at all times! Thank you Gloria for finding my family a home and making the transition so simple and stress-free! I will definitely be a returning client!
She went far above and beyond her duties as a Realtor. Sophie sold my nephew's Townhouse, who lives alone and suffers from several ailments. He could not do too much to prepare his home for sale in a timely manner. Sophie helped him by placing items for sale on her Facebook Marketplace page and was present when transactions took place. She also found a Condo for my nephew to move to. Sophie supported him in countless ways. She is very pleasant and knowledgeable about the business she is in. I would highly recommend her to help you with the sale of your property.
He is one of the most hardworking realtors I have ever had. I highly recommend him for his hard work, dedication, and knowledge of the industry in general!
Went well out of his way all hours and weekends to help. Was always responsive. I’ve used Chris twice now to procure and once to sell. If I need him I’ll use him again for sure.
We went through Abbotsford for an entire day – in the end, you found a property last minute that was outside of our original ask but which you knew we would love. Within 30 minutes of arriving at the property we wrote an offer. You did an amazing job, and thank you!!!
I had limited time to visit so he made sure to make the most of this time. He is easy to reach and gives helpful insight. He also took the time to show me the town and explain the areas.
He was also honest and forthcoming. Communication was very swift and he always kept us in the loop on the goings on of pending transactions.
I am now moved in and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Steve and Wheeler Realty for the excellent professional customer service they extended to me. Steve Davies was very knowledgeable, polite, courteous, punctual and very professional. He seemed enthusiastic to satisfy the "customers" needs, and not push something else. Due to other circumstances recently, I had direct dealings with 4 different national real estate companies, and I was not only unimpressed but thought some of their tactics bordered on unprofessional. I will deal with Steve and Wheeler Realty again in the future and I will certainly recommend them to my friends. I am very happy with the house I purchased, so thanks again!
She was always available for our questions and went above an beyond to help get the answers we needed. We will definitely be giving her a call next time to sell!
He is friendly, upbeat and very easy to talk to. I didn’t know Chilliwack well and Shane’s knowledge, advice, and consideration of my wants and needs made such a big difference in finding my new home. I truly appreciate that Shane was patient and happy to answer my many questions about strata minutes, bylaws, reports and about the legal jargon in the purchasing agreements. I really enjoyed working with Shane. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a realtor.
My first time doing this so I had a lot of questions. And he answered them all. He told me step by step what to do and what my options were. He is very knowledgeable and works hard for you to make sure you get everything you want or looking for. Definitely will call him for any future real estate deals. And will tell anyone who needs to realtor. To call Nick
Setter, to anyone in the market for a home. We appreciated the attention Shane gave us on our deal and follow up. His expertise was felt all the way thru our transaction and we will continue in the future to do business. If your in the position to need a realtor, call Shane Setter, you will not be disappointed.
plus he gives a killer congrats package after buying 😛
Good advice on what properties are good value and which are not based on resale value/renting opportunities etc. Made the process straight forward and as low stress as making such a large purchase can be.
All the staff and other realtors were welcoming and made me feel comfortable right away. Starting a new career can be intimidating, and every time I had a question or needed advice, and there were a lot of times, I was directed to the person who could help, and they always made sure that I had my answers. The training, support and friendships we have in our office makes me feel very fortunate and happy with my decision.
Was always quick to get back to us as well as being able to go see different houses within a few days .
