We have worked with Chris and his team on a few different occasions, and each time we are thoroughly impressed with the level of commitment and professionalism that everyone on the team brings. Chris is experienced and knowledgeable about the real estate market and trends, and is proactive in his advice and approach to try to stay one step ahead of the ‘competition’.  When markets were slow, Chris worked hard to get our property exposure and when the time came to negotiate he was a step above ensuring that we got maximum value for our property. Every step of the way- from the listing agreement, pictures, staging advice, showings, etc, Chris and his team were there for us and we were very impressed with the time and expense spent, and attention to detail. I can wholeheartedly recommend Chris to anyone- buying or selling- for top quality representation.

I would describe my experience in dealing with Chris as nothing short of excellent. Right from our initial meeting, he was responsive to my requests while providing valuable input and advice. I also felt that he did a good job of navigating negotiations with the seller after we found the place that I wanted.

Chris sold our home in a high price point, in an extremely tough market in just over a month.  With very few properties around us selling, we were extremely grateful to have Chris as our realtor.  Chris has a great deal of experience and exceptional negotiating skills.  Even when the buyers got cold feet and it appeared the deal might not close, Chris was able to get it done.  Over the last decade, Chris has sold 3 homes for us and has represented us with the purchase of new properties as well.  Chris is extremely knowledgeable of the market and has excellent rapport with other realtors which is a definite asset in negotiations.  In our most recent search to find a new home, Chris was very flexible and patient and spent many hours on repeat showings to ensure we were happy with our decisions.  We have recommended Chris to our friends and they have had the same excellent experience.  We will continue to recommend Chris as an outstanding realtor and we will continue to use him for all of our real estate needs.  Thanks for making this one happen Chris.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      - S & K Coupland
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
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.

- J. Ryder

Very good experience, Chris is very knowledgeable and did a great job, I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

- Bob Loucks

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.

- Brenda Fraser

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.

- Katherine

Chris did a wonderful job for me. He is my hero. God bless and many thanks.

- Mrs. Chernichen

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.

- M. Bergen

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.
