We just had the best experience with Chris McRae. From the moment we met him, we knew it was a perfect fit. He’s down to earth, professional and very knowledgeable about what he does. He had our Chilliwack house staged in order to maximize the space and appeal to all buyers. We made the decision to move out after the staging was complete and while the showings were happening to ensure that the house was in the best shape possible for potential buyers. While we were out, Chris took care of EVERYTHING around the house – personally making sure that it was ready to go - even fixing small things that came up on the home inspection. Overall, we were ecstatic with the outcome and know that we couldn’t have done it without Chris's persistence and guidance throughout the entire process. If you are on the fence, just do it – you won’t be disappointed. Give Chris a call if you are looking for a Chilliwack Realtor ! - Krystal H
I honestly could not have asked for a better Chilliwack realtor than Chris. As a first time home buyer and a relatively new resident to Chilliwack, I was already nervous coming into the market. Chris made sure that I had all my geese in a row before we began our process, and had a plethora of connections in the industry. We originally found him through a Chilliwack facebook group called Living In Chilliwack which we soon found out he manages as well. Chris has a lot of patience, and definitely does his best to understand what you want and what the best options are for you. What I appreciated the most was his honesty. He never made me feel bad about not liking the same places, and gave me food for thought on the places I did. I even asked friends who were looking for their own places elsewhere about what their agent was suggesting for them and was so shocked to find out how little knowledge their agent had compared to the wealth of knowledge Chris had given me. When I eventually won my bid, it was honestly at a lower price than what I had initially planned to offer. I feel like I lucked out having Chris as my Chilliwack real estate agent, and you will too. Chris is active in the community which was really important to us as well. Thank you Chris, you have my vote! - Doug C

We have used Chris McRae for a few transactions so far and we have no regrets. Each time has been such a pleasure! He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and patient. We would easily call him the best Chilliwack real estate agent. He explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. I would highly recommend Chris if you are looking at buying a home in Chilliwack. He's an absolute gem. - Scott Parker
Reply: Thank you Scott. It was a pleasure working with you as well. I'm glad it all worked out well
Chris was recommended by our son. Chris was always on time, was easy to get along with, and he answered questions very quickly. He is a real estate agent that goes beyond the norm to support you in either buying or selling. Our first buyer failed to secure a mortgage, and Chris was extremely quick to find a second and third buyer. The photographer that Chris arranged was awesome, and the video was spectacular, which is really important at the moment with restrictions in place. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris to either buyers or sellers, he's a top notch agent! - Gavin Rowlandson
Reply: Thank you so much for the amazing review. It was a great experience working with you two as well. Cheers!
Chris met with us, suggested the list price according to market data. An offer came within 2 hours of being listed. Full ask, to be precise, over the list price! Chris delivers, does not overpromise, yet results are quick, and solid. - Jo Ann Nuttall
Reply: Thank you very much for your feedback. It was a pleasure working with you on this sale. Thank you for putting your trust in me to get the job done. Cheers!
Chris went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you Chris for making this a success. We had a situation which may have caused Chris more of his effort and time but he was more than accommodating. His knowledge about the current Chilliwack market and the area was very good. He kept everything positive with his timely communication even though I was a ball of stress. Totally would recommend Chris with McRae Real Estate group if you are looking for a Chilliwack realtor - Justin De Jong
Reply: Thanks very much for the nice review Justin. It was a pleasure working with you :)
My wife and I started to look at buying a new property 5 months ago. I personally spoke to over 3 other Realtors near me in Chilliwack and Chris was the best fit for the task at hand. Chris truly takes the time to help us with super helpful information about the real estate industry and market updates. Despite the difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Chris made us feel safe and taken care of while he guided us through the process...he even provided us with a mask and hand sanitizer. Chris made it extremely easy for us to competitively bid for our dream house, walked us through his strategy on buying a house and actually talked us down from an overly aggressive initial offer (clearly putting client service above his own commission). We have 2 kids and he even made our kids feel special and actually listened to them instead of ignoring them. To sum it up, it was an overall pleasant and seamless experience working with McRae Real Estate Group! If you need help finding a Chilliwack real estate agent to buy or sell a home in Chilliwack, call Chris McRae - hands down! - Jim N
Reply: Thank you Jim. I really appreciate the kind works and it was really nice working with you as well
While we've visited the Valley recreationally many times, I have lived in Vancouver and North Shore most of my time in BC so we wanted to find a local Realtor who would know by living there themselves the ins and outs of this new-to-us region to help guide our decision-making, not just about the house, but about the change in lifestyle a home purchase in a new town creates. Chris came highly recommended by a number of people so we reached out to him and were really happy to learn from personal experience what an awesome Realtor and all around guy he is. Chris is really personable and professional, which made for an excellent experience all-around. He was knowledgeable and proactive about every step of the process, and most important and helpful to me was that he was always readily available and quick to respond with kindness and patience despite the many, many questions that inevitably arise as a nervous first time homebuyer! We very quickly found a house we love so much, and despite some complicated situations that arose, he found a way to make everything work out in a way we're really happy with. I'd definitely recommend working with Chris for your home purchase as he's truly on your side, making sure you get what you want and need. - Kristine & Salvador
Reply: Thank you very much for the kind review. I am very happy for you both, you are going to love Hope. Looking forward to showing you some great spots. Cheers!
I was very pleased with Chris McRae. He was so refreshing after the trouble I had with my last Chilliwack Real Estate Agent. I travelled up to Chilliwack on the weekends to search for properties he had sent me to look at and even contacted me prior to the weekend by email to let him know of new Chilliwack homes to hit the market. After the home possession he called to see if everything was going well. Would recommend McRae Real Estate Group to anyone looking for a Chilliwack Realtor. - Donna Henshal
Reply: Thank you very much Donna. It was a pleasure working with you :)
Nothing but 5 stars for Chris McRae with McRae Real Estate Group! If I could give 10 stars for a Chilliwack Realtor I would. Chris was professional, fast and always available. From our initial zoom call meeting Chris stood out from many other Chilliwack real estate agents we had worked with. Extremely organized and you could not help but hear the passion he has in regards to his business and helping his clients. Chris even told me not to buy a house and I am so happy we listened. He went above and beyond for me on many occasions and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with him. Call Chris McRae if you are looking for a Chilliwack realtor! - Chantele M
Reply: Thanks for taking the time to write this nice review Chantele. Cheers!
Working with Chris to purchase our first home couldn't have gone any smoother. Chris was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us find our perfect starter home. Very friendly and always responsive, Chris helped us ensure we understood what was needed at every step and had great advice along the way that made the process a wonderful experience. More importantly, Chris offered very transparent and honest advice. We always felt we were in great hands and being taken care of. I would recommend working with Chris to anyone looking to purchase a home or selling. We will be working with Chris again in the future when we're ready to sell to buy another property. - Derek Howe

Very satisfied with Chris McRae with McRae Real Estate Group . We met Chris while doing a quick google search for Chilliwack Realtors, and we are so lucky he's the one we found. He was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process and was always available to talk if needed. For many realtors, they have a passion for selling homes , but for Chris, his passion seems to be for making people happy. From the beginning, he ensured to get a full understanding of what we were looking for in regards to neighbourhoods, budget, size, etc. He was clear in setting expectations and communicating trade-offs that may occur between our must have Chilliwack Home requirements. When it came to viewings, he was incredibly knowledgeable and went above and beyond to work around our hectic schedule. When we wanted to make an offer, he was quick to get things moving and was on top of everything that needed to be pulled together. Through the entire process he was easy to get a hold of and he was very easy to communicate with. We are so happy we chose the best Chilliwack real estate agent ! and we would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a trustworthy, professional, knowledgeable and friendly Chilliwack Realtor :) - Mike K

Searching for a Chilliwack Realtor was a big job. Our search began by going on google and looking up a realtor near me which was a terrible idea. This was not only stressful but it made our decision really tough. We overheard Chris was rated best Chilliwack realtor 2020 from a Facebook group we belong to called living in Chilliwack which apparently Chris runs as well. We searched top rated Chilliwack realtors and Chris had the best realtor Chilliwack reviews, and for good reason. We originally moved from Ladner 5 years ago and Chris helped us by a home in Chilliwack for myself and my wife. We soon outgrew the home and needed to upgrade to a bigger home as we now have 2 kids. We have a lot of Chilliwack real estate agents as friends but we honestly didn’t trust them to get the job done as well as Chris did. If you are looking for an honest, trustworthy and top rated Chilliwack realtor please do yourself and your family a favor and call Chris with McRae Real Estate Group. You have my vote again as Top Chilliwack Real Estate Agent 2021! - Tyler & Allison

I was looking for a Chilliwack Realtor for a while. Looking online and found Chris online with great reviews. On top of that I was referred to Chris McRae by a family friend and could not be happier with my experience. Chris made the process of both buying and selling as stress-free as possible. Chris walked me through every step of the process and was available any time I had a question. He made me feel heard and taken care of throughout the process. Their services are of very high quality and they don't cut corners, which provides results. I would highly recommend Chris and his team McRae Real Estate Group and will definitely use them again in the future. If you are looking for the best real estate agent in Chilliwack give Chris McRae a call ! - Kenneth Burkley

Nous avons adoré travailler avec Chris pour l’achat de notre nouvelle maison. We really appreciated all of the help that Chris offered us in our purchase. We were not first-time buyers, but we were in B.C. He helped us through the whole process, and he was even the one to suggest that we visit the house we actually closed on. He is very professional, very responsive, and especially a very helpful. If you are looking for someone who will listen to your needs and helps you find that place you can’t go wrong with choosing Chris! - Jace

Working with Chris was a really great experience!

We recently planned a move to Chilliwack and started to explore housing options. We chose Chris as our agent as he came highly recommended, and not once had any regrets. He was very helpful from the start, making our requests a top priority and help us find our dream home. Through the process we not once felt rushed, even in this crazy market! We were regularly kept updated on new houses on the market, his input during every step and knowledge of each area was invaluable. We would highly recommend Chris, it was an absolute pleasure working with him! Thanks Chris! - Ettienne and Elizna
Reply: Thank you for the very nice review. It was a pleasure working you two on the purchase :)
As first time home buyers Chris worked with our evolving needs in a challenging market to assist us in finding a townhome in an amazing area! His calm and personable approach to real estate backed by his experience and knowledge made us feel comfortable and assured that we would end up with the perfect home for us! And we did!!! :) We would definitely reach out to Chris again in the future and we highly recommend him to anyone, especially in the Chilliwack area! He was reachable night and day and went above and beyond with all our questions and concerns! We couldn’t of been happier with our overall experience! C and J. - Colton and Jasmine
Reply: Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts. It was a pleasure working with you two on your first purchase :)
We we glad to have partnered with Chris for selling our townhouse in Chilliwack. We had a tight deadline for a move out-of-province and made a sale happen within six days of listing. Chris was quick to come in to assess, get everything moving, and most importantly provided transparency and honesty. The photos, videos and drone footage was excellent, brought in a lot of compliments, and helped bring in a high number of showings. Chris brought a modern-day approach to selling and reading the market which I felt was a big part of the success in selling quickly and over-asking. - Mark
Reply: Thanks very much for the nice review Mark. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. Cheers!
Chris was recommended to me through a friend. From the initial introduction call all the way through to closing on the house, Chris guided us through the entire home-buying process. We were very nervous first time home owners, he outlined next steps very clearly and was always available for questions. Chris was also firm during negotiations with the seller and through determination, experience and his foresight we were able to close before our deadline. I will be highly recommending Chris to all of my friends and family in the Chilliwack and the Valley. - Chantelle & Tim
Reply: Thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasure. Cheers!
I called Chris McRae because I did my homework and found out who the top selling agent was in Chilliwack and his name came up, and one other which I haven't heard many good things about LOL. Since the initial meeting with Chris at my condominium which I was selling, he was professional, knowledgeable and forthright with all answers and information to my questions and concerns. We sold within 10 days, it was streamline and efficient throughout those 10 days. I would recommend Chris McRae to anybody that is selling or purchasing in the Chilliwack and surrounding area. He's very personable, and that makes the stress of moving a little less, when working with Chris and his team. - Pamela McDougall
Reply: Thanks for the very nice review Pam. Much appreciated :)
I hired Chris as a first time home buyer, and I would highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything. He responded to every question and inquiry I had right away. He helped us get our dream townhome and we couldn’t have done it without him. We’ll hire him again in the future! Adi & - Virginia
Reply: Thank you very much for the nice review, very much appreciated. It was a pleasure working with you and the family :)
Chris did an exceptional job in finding us a property that checked all the boxes and we closed the deal in less than a week's time. All communications, questions, documentations were handled in a highly professional manner. He took the time to explain every aspect of the deal in detail and ensured we are understanding each step and the reasoning behind it thoroughly before proceeding further. His knowledge on the process and the market is commendable. Being first time home buyers, it was a blessing to have Chris manage it all and we highly recommend him! - Neha & Abhi
Reply: Thank you very much for the kind review. It was a real pleasure working with you two on your first home purchase. Cheers !
As a first-time home buyer, I highly recommend Chris. He made the buying experience such a breeze. He was professional and personal! he never made me feel uncomfortable by not knowing the process, and he helped me every step of the way. Chris explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, from making the offer to finding me a mortgage broker, a home inspector, etc. This made it really easy to settle into the Fraser Valley region in less than 3 months after relocating. - Muna Ali
Reply: Thanks for the nice review Muna. I am very happy you had a good experience :) Cheers!
If you want a real-estate agent that looks out for your best interests even when you're not, Chris is your guy. He's very careful with your purchase, and makes sure you are buying the best possible place for you and your family. We had no idea what we were doing when we bought and he helped us with that. He's smart and knowledgeable, friendly and honest. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to buy a home - Krystal C
Reply: Thanks very much for the nice review. It was a pleasure working with you :)
Chris was very thorough, attentive, very knowledgeable, and it was a really great experience to work with him during my buying & selling process. He has very good negotiating skills, which was a great asset to have on my side in aiming for obtaining the best price for me. I would recommend Chris again anytime. Thank you :) - Kathy
Reply: Thanks Kathy, it is always a please working with you :)
Chris was amazing !!! Talk about reliability & honesty . He always had our best interest in mind always listened to what we were looking for !! He did a great job selling our townhouse literally wasn't on the market for 3 weeks & sold . He had tones of people coming to look at it we couldn't believe it . Then before we knew it he found us our dream house exactly what we were looking for & under asking price . Can't ask for more than that . We highly recommend Chris for all your realtor needs if your selling or buying or like us doing both . He'll make you feel like you've known him your whole life super comfortable . Were really happy & super impressed! - Tori M
Reply: Thanks for taking the time to write this nice review Tori. Cheers!
Again, we had a great experience with Chris. We have used him in the past for our current house purchase so we called him to purchase an investment Townhome in Langley. He really took the time and listened to what we value and what we were looking for in a home. Most importantly, it seemed to us that Chris was in the realtor business for the right reasons - to provide valuable information and to help us through another big investment decision of our lives. It never felt that it was all about the money. Chris explained everything in detail about the presale, kept us well informed at all times, and was quick to act when needed. We always felt in great hands and would recommend him again to friends and family. - Samantha
Reply: Thanks very much for the kind review. Much appreciated :)
Chris McRae is the best, he worked so hard and he managed to find us exactly what we wanted. We changed our minds a few times as to what we wanted and what we could afford. Chris always accommodated us by updating our search parameters quickly and efficiently. He worked hard to get us showings at our times. We are very grateful to Chris and will continue to use him down the road. - Devin Jones
Reply: Thanks very much for the nice review. I’m very happy for you and the family. You’re going to love the area. Cheers!
We met Chris around 4 weeks ago. It has been challenging so far finding a house because offer situation is tough now with many buyers and our first purchase. He met us on zoom call and went over the entire steps to buy the house so we are prepared when we are ready. So far we have very much appreciated his support. - Sammy Singh
Reply: Thanks for the nice review Sam, very much appreciated.
Would recommend Chris's knowledge and expertise on any real estate sale in Chilliwack. He is extremely accommodating in the viewings he arranged for us. His knowledge on strata rules and regulations was a great help and the transaction went very smooth. Extremely satisfied! - T Li

Chris is such a really nice realtor! I have worked with a few realtors in the past but we will definitely stay with Chris in future. He is genuine, friendly, smart and hardworking. The main thing I felt was trust from the initial phone call. He is always available and well connected I highly recommend him! - Tim & Sanda H

Buying or selling a property is always a nerve racking situation. Over the past 5 years, I have had multiple dealings with Chris. He is absolutely the best real estate agent in my opinion in the Fraser Valley/Chilliwack. He goes above and beyond what is expected. From early morning to late evening, Chris is always ready and willing to help. I have bought and sold a few properties with Chris, as well as recommended him to many colleagues and friends. I have yet to hear anything other than praise of him. He is knowledgeable, helpful, and has a very no pressure attitude. I think these traits make him a fantastic agent. I will continue to use Chris as my realtor of choice for many years to come. There is no one better! - Christian A
Reply: I appreciate the nice review Christian. It's a pleasure working with you as well. Cheers!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Chris McRae. He is extremely knowledgeable and his advice was always was spot on.

Chris McRae was wonderful to work with. As first time house buyers, he helped guide us every step of the way until we found something just right for us. He is very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. He also did a fantastic job selling our condo. He referred great tradespeople to help us make the most of our sale. We highly recommend Chris and would gladly work with him again in the future! - Ashley L
Reply: Thanks Ash & Kyle. Looking forward to working with you again in the future
As first time home buyers with a limited budget, we were skeptical about securing a detached home in Chilliwack. Chris was patient, responsive, accommodating and had many suggestions of homes for us to view that fit what we were looking for. In just a few weeks, we found a property that we are very satisfied with and are very appreciative to Chris for his help. - Connie Everly
Reply: Thank you Connie. I'm so happy you ended up finding the right home :)
I needed to sell my condo during these difficult times of COVID-19 and was nervous seeing some of the recent trends. I used Chris before in the past and he was wonderful, so using him again was the obvious choice for me. And once again, Chris came through. From start to finish, Chris was there to answer questions, to guide me through staging and was there helping me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He has an incredible way of connecting with you and making you feel at ease. We sold quickly and he was bang on with every assessment he made. I know that I will always look to Chris for any of my real estate needs. - Frank C
Reply: Thanks Frank for the nice review. Cheers
Chris was the ideal partner to our family as we moved from our condo to a larger home. As we went through the chaotic process of staging and listing our condo, Chris was proactive with advice and logistical help, from interior design ideas to helping us balance the demands of open houses and showings with the needs of our young kids. At every step of the way, Chris's experience and reassurance helped us smoothly navigate a process that otherwise would have been overwhelming and stressful. - Kevin Marcinew

Chris McRae is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and he was helpful in selling our condo. He is responsive and professional.

Chris is definitely someone you are looking for to buy and sell properties! :) - Martha Gorman
Reply: Thanks a lot Martha . It was great working with you as well.
This is the second time I have hired Chris McRae because he is very knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions that come up. He pays attention to every detail of the sale so you know nothing will be missed. He has great connections to contractors for recommendations and provided us with tips on upgrading the condo. He genuinely cares about helping you make the right choices and that really comes through. We were making a huge transition moving from Maple Ridge to Chilliwack and he made it easy for us. I highly recommend Chris McRae. - Cheryl B
Reply: Thanks so much Cheryl. I am so glad you had a great experience. Cheers
Back in 2015, we used Chris to help us sell our condo in Langley. He gave us all the advice and contacts to stage our condo and get ready to sell. After the condo was sold, he helped us purchase our first detached family home. We wanted to add hardwood floor before we moved in and Chris was there to give us his trade contacts and recommendations on flooring contractors. Now in 2020, we used Chris again to sell/buy our new house. With Chris, he will be there for you from selling/buying and to line-up stager, contractors, movers and mortgage brokers to make a stressful process as simple and stress-free as possible. You will not be disappointed with his service! - Peter W
Reply: Thanks as always Peter. I appreciate all your support :)
I have worked with a lot of Real Estate pro's in the past 10 years. Some have been nice, some have been stand offish, some have major ego issues. When it comes to Chris, I was/am blown away. He is so professional and on top of things like you wouldn't believe. My husband and I own a business in the Langley area and we also have a 5 year old. So needless to say our lives are busy. Chris made the process of finding a home so freaking easy I am still in shock. He did his job and handled the difficult parts and made my life and husbands life so easy with this process. I would HIGHLY recommended calling Chris whenever you need to buy/sell. I would seriously give 10 stars if I could. Thank you so much for your hard work and honest work ethic. - Laura Mateus
Reply: Thank you very much Laura. I really appreciate you taking the time to write this nice review
Chris is an amazing realtor. I liked his approach from our initial phone conversation and that continued through the close. Chris took care of everything which was particularly important to us, as we no longer live in the area. His expectations were realistic and clear. He was available anytime we had a question and he delivered on his promises. I would highly recommend him to anyone. - Christine H
Reply: Thank you very much Christine :)
We just purchased our first home and Chris was the most amazing realtor to work with. The highest of praises wouldn't be enough. After seeing a few homes with us, he got the vibe and type of house that would best fit our needs and wants. He was on top of it - emailing and texting with every potential house the moment it hit the market, even getting showings that same day. Chris does work, all day, every day. His knowledge of all the real estate in Chilliwack is something to marvel when he's just rattling off information to answer all your questions. Off the top of his head, he knew information about school districts, little pockets in neighborhoods you would otherwise never find, and how to write an attractive offer that gets you into the home you want. He was so patient, energetic, and fun to work with. We saw roughly 20 homes over 3 months and eventually found our dream home. Every other realtor we interacted with was nowhere near Chris's caliber. When it came time to put in offers on homes, his knowledge and negotiating skills were on point. He guided and steered us the whole way, laying out timelines, what to expect with closing, scheduling the inspections, recommending the best contractors, plumbers, etc. he was so on top of it - both with speed and the best crews. To whoever is reading this, we don't know where you are on your journey of finding a home/condo/whatever, but it's a crazy market out there as we're sure you know. We feel your pain. It was a rollercoaster of emotions, we were getting outbid on homes we fell in love with, more than 17 offers to compete with on others. It took a long time to finally find the right home. It's wild out there. After going through this process, we wouldn't venture out into that wilderness again with anyone else. If you want to work with a fantastic realtor, you found him. - Dana Jonas
Reply: Thank you Dana. It was a pleasure working with you as well :)
Chris is a top notch professional with a work ethic that is impressive and I work in a fast paced corporate environment. He was extremely proactive & responsive with his insight, questions and answers. He is digitally savvy with his marketing, process & workflow management. It is highly obvious that he takes great pride in his work and loves what he does! With a big smile on his face. I listed my property for sale with him and the entire process was done remotely as possible due to Covid-19. He kept an eye on the local conditions in the market, made calibrations where needed and kept me updated with texts, email, pictures, live FaceTime & videos! He graciously offered & completed a walk through for the vacating tenants from a few years back and he was not connected to that transaction! He is handling my future transactions. I will be happy to act as a reference for him. Truly a pleasure! - Amber F

My wife and I have been low-key searching the housing market in Chilliwack lately (and mostly just feeling sad about it all because everything costs an arm and both legs). We were both thinking " Where is the best area to live in Chilliwack ? " and " What are the best schools in Chilliwack " ? I have to give a shout out to our really helpful agent, Chris. He is really sweet, patient, and knowledgeable. If you are wondering how to buy a house in Chilliwack or any area for that matter don't hesitate to call McRae Real Estate Group. - Lisa Morry
Reply: Thank you Mark & Lisa, it was a real pleasure working with you two as well :)
Chris was so easy to work with and got my family into a great house in Chillwack! He always got back to us quickly, always answered all of our questions, even the dumb ones we had sometimes. Chris has great energy and did a wonderful job finding and scheduling all of the houses we went to view, a difficult task considering all the Covid rules right now. I would highly recommend McRae Real Estate Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Thanks again - Larry C

We recently had the pleasure of working with Chris when looking to sell our home and buying a new condo. Chris was extremely professional, patient, responsive and made the selling and buying process so seamless. Chris had great suggestions for homes to view based on what my mom was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Chris was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen and went above and beyond. I am currently in the process of buying my first home as well and there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be! - Cliff & Nicole

Our experience with Chris was a great one. We almost made the mistake of going with another agent that wanted to sell the house as is and under the value of the house. Chris however was persistent and convinced us to go with him. He helped us fix our home and get it ready for sale. One thing that sets Chris apart is that he has a well established marketing plan and has proven to be very successful. Every part of the process was enjoyable. Even when our first offer fell apart due to issues with the potential buyers, Chris already proactively got us another offer that was ready to go and did not present any issues. I will be recommending Chris to all my friends and family. - Taylor M

Chris is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Knows the market well and is who you want as an agent when you’re ready purchase/sell your home. This is the second home he’s helped me purchase and in my experience he’s very pleasant and easy to work with. He listens carefully to what you’re looking for and gets right to business with no messing around. The most important part for me is that he is 100% trust worthy and he will always be my go to for any future real estate needs. I would hands down recommend Chris again and again. - Randy R

As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions. Chris was very helpful and answered all of our questions, even the silly ones, honestly and in the end, helped us make the best decision. We appreciate all of their hard work. Thank you. - Ashley L

A family member of mine referred Chris to my husband & I after venting our frustrations about our previous realtor. No joke, we met Chris a day after I contacted him, and a week later we put in an offer and about another week later we had our house accepted! Chris McRae is extremely responsive, patient and always willing to help you when you have questions. As a first time home buyer my husband & I were super nervous, and we would constantly ask Chris questions. He NEVER once gave us any attitude, or made us feel dumb. If anything, he would test us or call us right away and answer our question or address our concerns. We love Chris McRae, and when we are ready to sell, he will be the FIRST call we make! - Tim N

Working with Chris was the experience we wanted and needed. As a first time home buyer, I felt bombarded with the intricacies of process. From the home touring to putting down an offer, working with Chris was a breeze. Chris made all paperwork and details consumable for us. He streamlined the process and was able to push us thru to the finish-line. He worked diligently during late night hours to make sure that we expedite our purchase. Most importantly, he was highly responsive and kept us informed every step of the way. He truly cares about his work and his commitment to providing the best experience for his clients. Thank you Chris McRae for all of your hard work and helping us purchase our dream home. My family and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hopes the universe will return the favor for you. - Dana McKenzie

Chris provided my wife and I with excellent service in both my home search and sale. She goes above and beyond for her clients finding out exactly what your needs are and being detailed in every aspect of the buying/selling process. He is strategic in negotiations and innovative in marketing. He also provided us with a great resource for lending help when we had trouble getting approved previously. I will definitely consider working with him in the future if the opportunity presents itself and recommend him possibly to friends and family. - Mark C
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Mark. I am happy to hear you had a great experience and it is always a pleasure working with your family.
Chris helped me buy my first home in Chilliwack and I could not be happier with the service he provided. As a first-time home buyer, the process seemed very daunting, but Chris was there to help me at every step. He listened to all the preferences I wanted in my new home and helped narrow down my search to the specifications I was looking for. Once it came down to viewing houses he setup all the appointments and planned the route to each house to maximize viewing time. When I did find the perfect home, he helped me choose the best home inspector to identify any defects and make sure they were addressed before the purchase. When it came down to the financing process I researched several banks but ended up using one that Chris suggested. They offered me the lowest interest rate and their customer service was amazing. Overall, I had a great home buying experience thanks to Chris McRae and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Thanks. - Luis S

We were uncertain about selling our home in Chilliwack, having never sold a home before. I happened to meet Chris McRae around the neighborhood and knew that he was the one who would help us. Also, McRae Real Estate Group had recently sold a home on our street and throughout the neighborhood, so we felt comfortable knowing that they knew the market well. And that, they did! Chris was AMAZING! Always positive and responsive... very reassuring for us. He had everything lined up and taken care of and told us exactly what we needed to do... and we had an offer ABOVE asking within TWO DAYS of listing! We couldn't be more pleased with Chris McRae! - Julie A

We worked with Chris McRae with McRae Real Estate Group to buy and sell homes, so we got to see them in action of both sides of the transaction. My husband and I were one of those annoying couples who weren't entirely sure what we wanted (old vs. new, stay in Chilliwack or try Vancouver, etc.). Plus, we weren't in a hurry to leave our home, and were instead waiting for the perfect place to come along. Of course, the perfect place came when I was 8 months pregnant, and caught the eye of 7 other interested buyers. Having never before been in a bidding war, Chris talked us through the various kinds of strategies that we could utilize to appear most attractive to the seller. His expertise clearly paid off; the seller chose our offer! Selling our home was just as smooth. Thanks to Chris's guidance and help from his recommended staging expert, we sold our home in less than a week. If winning a bidding war and selling our house in record time wasn't enough, we needed yet more help and patience as baby came three weeks early. Chris kept his calm during an incredibly stressful time for our family, and helped both closings run smoothly. We chose Chris McRae after seeing their signs on properties throughout Chilliwack and clearly shows that they know it and neighboring areas incredibly well. I am still in awe that our offer won the day and that our home sold so quickly. If I wasn't currently sitting in my new home, I'd say that such a scenario was too good to be true. Ultimately, though, it isn't their expertise that would cause me to recommend them. Instead, their stellar customer service truly sets them apart from the rest. I highly recommend Chris McRae. Thank you! - Marco & Samantha

I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home! - Scott M
