Chris is highly knowledgeable and very easy to work with! He is able to find homes that fit the wants and needs of the family and do it with a given budget. I have worked with him many times over the year and continually recommend him to family and friends. - Breanna Marshall
I met Chris at an open house, he was very upfront and honest with me while he walked me through the home. I had him over for a valuation of my current home and was very pleased with his presentation. He sold my home very quickly so my family and I were not inconvenienced with weeks of showings and when it was time to buy, we found our home quickly and Chris got us a great deal! I’ve used Chris ever since for all my buying and selling needs. - Courtney Hughes

I posted to sell my own house and Chris Costabile saw my listed house and contacted me to say it was very nice and worth more then I was asking. We met, I liked what he had to say, signed with him and sold over asking in one week. Great dealing with him. It made my life easier. - Yvette Belmore
Reply: Yvette! It was a pleasure helping you with your sale! Thank you so much for your trust in the process!

Just a great experience working with Chris! He was very patient which both my wife and I appreciated and was able to find and close our forever home. I would never use another agent after my dealings with Chris! - BRETT BURKHOLDER
Reply: Brett, thank you for the review! Hope you guys still love the home!
Chris came HIGHLY Recommended to me after having helped my sister purchase her first house (and next house and next house). If there was more than 5 stars I’d be giving them to Chris. He was knowledgeable, patient, helpful, and absolutely wonderful to deal with. My boyfriend and I are first time homebuyers and the whole home buying process was so intimidating, but chris took the time to make us feel important, explain all the processes, connect us with the right people, and answer ALL of our questions. I would recommend Chris to absolutely anyone looking to buy or sell a home and could not be happier with how smooth he made this entire process. If we move again in the future he is my first and only choice for a realtor. Thank you so much!!!!! - Kim
Reply: Kim! You are the best, I hope you are enjoying the new place!!
We hired Chris after having a terrible experience with another agent and having our house sit on the market for months. We had a beautiful home and it wasn’t making sense why it wouldn’t sell. We hired Chris and he had our home sold within a couple of weeks. The difference between him and our other agent was night and day. He was so helpful and really knew what he was doing. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell or buy!! - Kelly
Reply: Kelly, I loved working with you & the family, thank you for your trust in the process!!
Chris is extremely knowledgeable. He really knows his stuff and what is going on in your city. Have already recommended him to family members. He always returns my calls and keeps us informed on feedback. - Lucia Joniec
Reply: Lucia, thank you very much, I super appreciate the kinds words. I am extremely humbled you & your sisters selected me to represent you all in this transaction! So happy for you all
I would recommend Chris over anyone else, simply because he has the knowledge and ability to help you find, and buy your perfect home. I have bought and sold with Chris a handful of times now, and would not hesitate to reach out when the time comes to move again. - Becca
Reply: Thank you Becca for the kind words, love working with you guys
I hired Chris when he first started as a real estate agent. He still keeps in touch and keeps me updated. He is fantastic and I will hire him again. I have recommended him to everyone. - Joyce
Reply: Joyce!! You need to sell so I can work with you guys again :) thank you so much for the review :)
We used Chris to purchase out first home 3 years ago, and when we were ready to sell and find our forever home, we had no question about who we would be using! Chris is an amazing realtor! He is knowledgeable about every trick of his trade! Chris also was very personable with my husband, myself, and our two girls. Chris always kept in mind what we wanted out of the properties we looked at and always helped us Envision our family living in the houses. Chris came over and gave us advice on what we could change in our home to increase the value. As first-time sellers, it was very helpful having someone take the time to tell us what is a smart renovation to do to increase value! While having our house on the market Chris always kept us in the loop on everything going on with the property and was flexible working showings around our two children and my night shift schedule. It made the whole selling process way less stressful! We would recommend and do recommend Chris to everyone we know who is in need of a realtor! - Nicole Thompson
“This is our second sale using Chris Costabile. From the initial consultation and assessment of our home through to signing the offer; the process is professional and you are treated with a high-level of customer service that really is unmatched. Two things that are top of mind for us is; the peace of mind knowing that all of the small details are taken care of and the level of marketing your home receives. A multi-platform marketing plan brought in more interest that we could possibly imagine. Selling your home can be very stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Revel, Chris and his team will support you through every step of the way. Choose Chris Costabile to sell or find you a new home. You won’t be disappointed.” - ELSA LINDFIELD
We met Chris a few months ago when we had interest in one of his listings which started our process of buying and selling. The listing we were looking at was only up a short time and was sold already… right there we knew right away he was going to be our agent! He came to our home and we connected right away with Chris. He was going over all of our options almost like a friend or family member, not as a agent or salesman that’s just trying to obtain his next sale. We believed in Chris from the start, in this market it does take a lot of patience, losing on houses and bidding wars which was in the end what got us the home we truly wanted and the one that was meant to be for us. Chris truly never disappointed us and exceeded all expectations. When we set the bar high for him he didn’t back down and he lit a fire for himself and accomplished everything asked. Job well done to Chris and His awesome team!!!! Needless to say he’s more then welcome over anytime if he’s ever in the neighbourhood. Thanks again Chris !! - John Vassallo
“We contacted Chris when we decided to sell her home after 18 years. We know the market has changed and we wanted his experience to help us navigate through that. Not only did he help with suggestions on how to get our house ready for sale, we were able to Sell Over Asking within seven days! He is professional always able to answer any questions we have, and really guided us through in a situation we haven’t been in in years. I will use Chris and his team again if we ever move. Chris and his team really helped us in a stressful situation because he made it not stressful! I personally want to thank Chris and his team including Jacqui for doing such a great job in our sale!” - Leanne and Gerald Laurin
Chris and his team were fantastic! It took a little longer to sell but Chris kept pushing and got the job done. He is confident and knowledgeable in his work. 100% recommend. - Helen Wall
Chris and his assistant Jacqui were both great to work with for buying our new home, and selling our old one. They answered any and all questions that we had. Would highly recommend them for buying and selling. - Abe Peters
Another successful purchase/sale with Chris! I met Chris years ago, showing me a home I had interest in. I have continued to reach out to Chris and now have 4 moves (sale/purchases) to reflect on, they have all been amazingly smooth transactions. Chris was extremely helpful with market information, sale/purchase strategies, home staging, and great recommendations on moving companies, and the list goes on. Jacqui, (Chris’s assistant) kept appointment bookings, staging coordinations and went out of her way to assist me with touch ups and small projects that were difficult for myself to complete. Working with Chris has been a wonderful experience, when you work with someone who cares about the success of their clients, my needs were met fully, takes the edge off knowing you are supported by the best! Again, I thank you, my friend. All the best in 2022 and beyond! - Debra Beckels
I have had a few real estate dealings in the past, but I have never had an agent so thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate, and considerate as Chris. Also, I have never had a home sell so quickly! Because I am single and have had a few health issues, Chris arranged professional packers and cleaners for me. He’s also arranged for the moving company to move me upon closing. He and his Executive Assistant Jaqui, have been in constant communication with me which let me know how hard they were working for me. A new experience for sure! Chris has made this move far less stressful than any I’ve had in the past. I gladly and highly recommend Chris to anyone considering a real estate transaction! - Beverley Allan
Reply: Bev, it was an absolute honour to help you with this move! I am humbled by your wonderful words.. thank you so much

Chris goes above and beyond when selling a house. Not only was he an amazing realtor but he is a great guy, easy to talk to about life in general. He talks to you straight up about the market and is reasonable with expectations. He was able to sell my house for well above asking in two days. I would recommend Chris to anyone buying or selling a house. You will not be disappointed. - Kyle Thompson
Reply: Kyle, going to miss you & your family around here, I hope out east treats you well, even though, you are a bills fan lol
Chris definitely delivered. Chris came to us with a well thought out game plan, and was prepared with a Plan B, since our house had no comparables and was tough to really nail down exactly what would happen. He was very honest with us upfront and did not try to promise what he couldn’t. But he was confident that we would have no issues selling our house, and crushed it when it was game-time, strategically fielding multiple offers, and getting us well over asking for our small country home. He also helped us buy a our new home for under asking, and made that process seamless as well. I was hesitant to use a realtor this time around since our first home purchase was an ordeal, but decided to switch to Chris in the end. He showed us what kind of value we could expect from a respected realtor, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy/ sell. - Derek Warner
Reply: Derek, thank you for trusting me & the amazing feedback. I’m so happy we found your dream home. You know what they say, happy wife, happy life :)

Reply: Thank you Karen! Appreciate your trust everytime! I hope you guys finally get settled in & enjoy living in that gorgeous home
Chris is the most amazing agent ever! He is the only realtor we have ever used (in Ontario) and he went above and beyond with the sale of our house! Not only did he help sell our house for a ridiculous amount of money but he also set us up with an amazing, trustworthy realtor out of province which gave us the peace of mind making this huge transaction out of province. Chris is professional and prompt and has the best team that makes buying and selling a house easy! We will be recommending Chris to anyone!!! - Nicole Thompson
Reply: Amazing!! So happy for you both & the huge move. So sad though you guys are so far away :(
Chris was excellent and extremely patient with us while we were finding our first home, he took care in making sure we had the right place.

Reply: James & Jeremy, thank you so much for the kind words!! Really appreciate it :)
Chris is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone selling/buying a home. He is honest, down to earth and funny. He takes his job very seriously and it is his mission to find you your dream home. He gains tons of insight from you initially and takes the time to ensure the listings he sends to you are catered to what you are interested in and fits you and your family's needs leaving no stone unturned. He also has a huge network and goes above and beyond to sell your home. Would recommend him 100 times over! Plus his assistant Jacqui is pretty awesome too! - Nicole Patterson

Working with Chris is always a blast. He is truly the best realtor out there. He sold our house in Brantford for more than what we though we could get and found us a hidden gem in Cayuga. He always answers which is fantastic as I work long hours and he responds even at night. Even with our most outrageous ideas he manages to make them happen. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy or sell. - Tyler Mans
Reply: Thank you Mans family!! love working with you all!

Reply: Sarah, absolutely loved helping you again, what a great home you purchased. Thank you always for your trust
We were nervous at first about buying a house because we didn't know the first thing about it. Chris walked us through the whole process and made it very easy, within about a month we found our house and the sold sign was up :)..we didn't feel rushed and we knew if we had any questions or concerns then we could just sent a text and get an answer. We are thankful for the process being as easy and affordable as possible. We have been in the house for about 6 years now and we still get little surprises by our door at the holidays :) When the time comes that we plan to move again we will be contacting Chris :) - Amber
Reply: Amber, always loved helping you guys. Look forward in working with you guys again!
We relocated to Brantford, Chris arranged for us to see 18 houses in 2 days, picked us up from our hotel and in between showings he was our tour guide around Brantford. Chris helped us find the perfect home for our family! Since moving in, he has checked in on us several times. We have and would highly recommend Chris. - Rachel Taylor
Reply: Rachel, working with you & your family was an amazing experience, I'm so happy for you guys
Quick, Responsive and to the point. Chris REALLY knows his numbers! Thank you Chris for selling our house in less than 24 hours and finding everything we need. The process is so simple with Chris and his staff! Forever grateful! - Aggie
Reply: Aggie, Thank you so much for the kind words. Love working with you both
Both times we’ve had Chris looking for a house for us, he knew exactly when he found it. This time he texted us, “ I found your new home.” And he was SO right. Without his connection with the other realtor we probably wouldn’t have lucked out in finding the great home we’re moving into. Selling ours was a quick breeze and we got a great price for it. He was always available, working so many hours and sharing in our enthusiasm the entire time. - Emily Bolton
We bought and sold a house ridiculously quickly and effortlessly with Chris. He’s great at gauging wants and needs and finding properties that suit his clients. Not to mention the excellent network and life experience that he can lean on. 100% satisfied! - Nathan Boloton
Absolutely impressed with Chris! We relocated to Brantford, Chris spent 2 weeks prior going over our wants / needs and sent us a variety of houses to view prior. He then picked us up from our hotel to view 11 houses in one day, plus took us around Brantford / Paris and was our tour guide. Chris dedicated an entire Saturday for us and Sunday morning for the second viewing and found us our perfect home! If you need a agent call Revel. - Rachel Taylor
Chris cares for his clients like they were his own family. Taking time to listen and understand our concerns with buying and selling a home, Chris set himself apart from other agents we have worked with in the past. He has guided us through the entire process, and his insight into the market is like no other. If you are looking for an agent, Chris is your man! - Jacqui Wright
Chris was so helpful and extremely knowledgeable about every little detail when selling and purchasing a home. He’s very strategic with offers and that is literally the only reason we were able to purchase our dream home in this crazy market. Thank you Chris and thank you Revel! - Bobbi Jo Macedo
