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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Chris McRae with McRae Real Estate Group to buy our new home in Chilliwack! Chris was incredibly knowledgeable, and took the time to really understand and cater to what we were looking for. Because of him, we found our dream home faster than we ever could have imagined! I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home! - Scott M

Chris with McRae Real Estate Group was amazing throughout the entire home selling process and an absolute all-star. From the moment we met him, we knew we were in extremely capable hands. He is a professional and an expert on all facets of the real estate market. Thorough and detail-oriented, his knowledge got our condo under contract within 3 days!! He walked us through the selling process, was accessible and communicative the entire time, and made every effort to be an advocate on our behalf. He had wonderful ideas and referrals for a handy man, real estate lawyer, etc. He was very quick to respond and proactive in getting us information and updates. Chris is an exceptional real estate agent and we highly recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and you would be lucky to have him on your team! - Nancy

We love working with Chris! We have worked with him 2 times as both buyer and seller, and he always goes above and beyond. Most recently, we needed to find a house fast for an upcoming move from Chilliwack to Cloverdale. He worked with us to line up showings, and he helped us find something perfect in our limited time frame. Chris listened closely our specific needs in a single family home and always kept us on track to finding a home that perfectly meets our needs. With his help, we were quickly able to narrow down the area of town that worked best for us and then find the best buy in the area. He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. A master with the contract negotiations, Chris came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. Throughout this home buying process, he was so helpful with his knowledge of appropriate home pricing and the features/benefits/drawbacks of each home. There is nothing that escapes Chris’s attention when it comes to property for sale in this area. We found Chris to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day, and he responded to our texts almost immediately. Even when he was on vacation! We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. It was a pleasure to look at homes with Chris leading the way. We are pleased to recommend Chris McRae to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again he will be our first choice in real estate agents. - Len & S

I just met Chris a couple weeks ago. I have been researching many different Chilliwack Realtors in the past 1-2months to find a good fit to sell my Chilliwack home and McRae Real Estate Group seems like a well fit . I have not listed my home yet but my first experience with Chris is fantastic. He is quick to return calls and very attentive on the phone. Recommend him 5 stars. - Mandy F

I could not recommend McRae Real Estate more. Chris is an extremely diligent, smart, responsive and loyal agent. Chris's negotiation and strategy skills are unmatched. He even went out and and got me a better deal than I said I'd accept - i was so surprised and thrilled when he said he'd gotten the seller to come down lower than the price I said was willing to pay. He also managed all the moving parts of the mortgage broker introduction, appraisals, inspections, insurance (everything!), making what would have been a highly stressful process for me very smooth. He truly delivers VIP treatment. But what I appreciate most of all is his integrety and his dedication to getting me into a home i sincerely love. When i started off I was all over map, and he helped me find a home that I absolutely love (and helped me understand potential pitfalls of other places, showing that he's not just out to make a sale). Chris is just a stellar person, and I feel so lucky to've had him on my team in this process. Thank you ! - Lina M

We were so fortunate to have found Chris McRae with Mcrae Real Estate Group when we moved to Chilliwack. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we traveled from Langley to look at homes over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Chris was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone. - Angela W

Chris has been my family’s go to agent for transactions in Langley & Chilliwack. He has always been a partner & friend in the process not just an agent. Chris gives 100% effort and professionalism. His network of resources and insight into the current market has been of great value. If you are looking for a great realtor make sure to work with McRae Real Estate Group. We will continue to use the services of Chris for all our families real estate needs. Thanks Chris ! - Terry L

Chris McRae helped my husband and I find our first home in Langley. He was very knowledgeable about the area and pricing. I'm pretty picky, and he was so personable and patient as we went from home to home until we found something perfect for our family. He was there every step of the way answering all of our questions and guiding us through the process. If we ever sell, we know who we're calling. Highly recommend him! Thank you :) - Krista

I'm not sure what to add to all the glowing reviews of McRae Real Estate Group that I already see here, other than to say that they're spot on and more. Chris is not at all your average realtor... by that I mean he's someone you can trust 100% to look after Your interests, focus on Your needs, and truly care about the outcome for Your family. He has immense patience, understands the complexity of the decisions that have to be made, and helps guide you through, holding your hand all the way. We've worked with other realtors before and have never felt the level of comfort and trust that he earns so naturally. Are there other good agents out there? Sure. But to combine all of Chris's experience with the level of personal support he offers is truly unique in Chilliwack. We were very fortunate to work with him on our most recent home purchase in Chilliwack, and look forward to calling him as soon as we're ready to buy again. Best Chilliwack Realtor !! - Wesley

I would need many more than 140 characters to explain how awesome Chris was throughout the entire home purchase process. From the work he did prior to the exploratory trip, great communication during the search, timely on-going communication, and then most importantly through the inspection and closing process. He's a true pro. If you are moving to the Chilliwack area--there is only one realtor to use--and that is Chris McRae of the McRae Real Estate Group. He pretty much became part of our extended family as a result of our purchase process. I'll never use another realtor and neither should you. His greatest attribute, "he listens" and then asks thought provoking questions which insures you get what you really want. - David

Chris was complete dream to work with! I was a first time home buyer and had no idea how to even begin looking for a home for my family and I. Chris explained the process and patiently answered all of my MANY questions, he then took control and worked his magic, I just told him what I liked and what works for my family and he did the rest! Full credit to Chris McRae for finding my family’s dream home in our dream location! I couldn’t recommend McRae Real Estate Group more. And, totally not a requirement, but a definite bonus, he is super cute as well. - Ashley

I recently had the pleasure of working with Chris McRae with McRae Real Estate Group when looking for my home. From day 1, Chris was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Chris was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be! My families realtor for life ❤️ - Lainey A

We were first time home buyers relocating from the Surrey area to Chilliwack. We selected the McRae Real Estate Group based on reviews we saw online and we were so lucky to have chosen them. We worked with Chris McRae and he was wonderful! He had a great knowledge of the surrounding area and knew exactly what we were looking for. He was very responsive to our needs and was always available when we needed him to be. Anyone looking to purchase a home would be lucky to work with Chris McRae. - Mark & Connie

Chris has both an intuitive as well as logical understanding of the market. When I was doing my due diligence before purchasing my Chilliwack home, Chris gave me the room to express my concerns with each property I rejected. He was supportive during my rejection of the properties that simply did not measure up to my needs. Chris is communicative and proactive. He never once left me out of the loop during negotiations and counter offers. Although he did not share my pessimistic view, Chris was continually providing me information to allow me to make my decision truly mine. His loyalty to the client is his bread and butter. By the time I was signing the dotted line, it was obvious that Chris had represented my unique view of the process. - Lance

Chris McRae was great during the entire process of buying a house. Where he really exceeded our expectations was how he made sure the process of closing was as stress-free and smooth as possible, by guiding us through each step and providing context about each decision we had to make. Even after closing he helped us settle in the new house and neighborhood. I cannot recommend him highly enough. - Mindy Thomas
