Chris was recommended through a friend. As we were new to Calgary, we needed someone with local knowledge and a lot of patience to show us around. We have been all over the city, looking at dozens of properties. Chris managed to set up many consecutive showings in a single day which allowed for a very efficient orientation of the city. Once we had a better idea of the neighbourhoods we refined our search. During the week we worked on a list of available properties, and set up the viewings over the weekend. Chris' knowledge of properties in general (including assessing building quality, potential re-sale value etc.) helped us to make our decision. He gave honest advice and wasn't just talking along with us to please us, he gave us real advice. During the negotiations we went back and forth a few times with the sellers and some solid advice was given by Chris on contractual terms that were foreign to us (as a first-time home buyer). This saved us money down the road as Chris ensured all the proper documentation (such as the RPR) was in the seller's scope. After a conditional offer was accepted, we used the (by Chris' recommended) Home Inspector and Lawyer to finalize the deal. We were impressed with his connections as they were knowledgeable, readily available, and affordable as compared to other quotes we received. We are very happy with Chris and his service. He is an all-around good guy, knowledgeable and has been around. He knows the right people and really went above and beyond to find our new home. I would recommend Chris to anyone if you are looking for your new home in Calgary and want some solid and honest advice.

A friend recommended Chris Zaharko after purchasing a home with him. I contacted him and he was immediately responsive, requesting my preferred communication method (email, telephone or text) and advising me that he was available any time. I'm a difficult client and I warned Chris that my number one priority was viewing properties immediately after finding them on the MLS. I was actually shocked about how responsive he was. I would send Chris a listing that I wanted to view and he would make arrangements to see it the same day. This happened on almost 10 different occasions. It was responsible and impressive, particularly in a market where good deals don't last long. I would not hesitate recommending Chris Zaharko. His market knowledge is second to none, he is a strong negotiator and he is extremely responsive. In my experience he is second to none.

This was our third time having used Chris and his team. His depth of service really made for a stress free process from start to finish. In particular what made Chris stand out vs. other realtors I surveyed was his thorough knowledge of the market and the differentiated advice he gave. His years of experience really shine through , especially when looking to close a deal in tougher markets. You can trust that he's always looking out for your best interest.
My daughter and I would like to thank to so much for selling her Condo at Anderson Estates. You took the listing and had it sold overnight. Very impressive. Thanks Chris for making the process of selling the our property simple and rewarding.

Chris and Samantha were great. The process of selling and buying our condo and house would have been impossible without them.
- Tom & Margaret Reinders
We were pleased with how quickly and smoothly both the sale of our condo and purchase of our house went. Chris did a great job negotiating on our behalf. We were also very happy with the help we received from Chris' assistant as she was always available to answer our questions and provide us with anything we needed.
Chris did a wonderful job for me. He is my hero. God bless and many thanks.

Chris and team were very in tune with the market in Calgary during these tough times. With a clear vision of the value of my property, they went to work to achieve that result for me even in a slow market. Very impressed with the amount of showings, advice around offers and final results. Great work and many thanks to all.

We saw Chris's Signs with sold stickers in our area. Chris did a good job helping us sell out condo. He recommended a price drop when he though it was necessary. He also got is 2 offers! We would use Chris again and we will, and have, recommended him to our friends.
