Being a first time home buyer was a very trying expereince. However, through Chris` patience, dedication, and hard work the process was made much easier. He took care of all my needs, including referring me to a good mortgage broker and lawyer, which helped make my closing run smoothly. Lastly, although being a younger real estate agent, his expertise truly showed when he secured my condominium for me in a competitive offer situation. Chris made my home buying expereince memorable and that is why I refer him to all my friends!!!

Most people find that looking for a house and trying to sell one a very stressful time in their life and I was no different than most people. I was therefore very pleasantly suprised when Chris started showing me around different parts of the city and taking his time to explain all the plus and minuses of each area. He was very knowlegable, always pleasant and extremely helpful. In no time at all I sold my house at exactly the price I wished for and found a charming house in Oakville.Chris facilitated the purchase of my new home and I could not have wished for a more charming and enthusiastic real estate agent than him. I would personally recommend Chris to anyone looking for an honest and hardworking Broker and will not hesitate to call on him again should the opportunity arise.

Chris did a great job in selling my property in Caledon. Although, it was not his area of expertise, he did extensive research and worked extremely hard in closing the deal. Overall, I was very impressed with his dedication to his job, his professionalism, and especially his hard work. He then helped me purchase a great condo in the heart of downtown Toronto, which is a perfect fit for my current lifestyle.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Carla and Chris. Not only are Carla and Chris professional and punctual, they are enthusiastic, honest, and thoughtful. The bar was set high for Carla and Chris as they came strongly recommended. They more than exceeded our expectations. It was very refreshing to have a team work as diligent and enthusiastic as they did.

My husband and I leveraged the expertise of Chris and Carla to help us purchase our first home together in Etobicoke.  As a team of realtors, we were immediately impressed with their extensive knowledge of the local Etobicoke market- there wasn't a house for sale that they didn't know about!  We were also impressed with their ability to balance our very different needs and wants in trying to find a home that worked for both of us.  They were also very "hands on" and available to us during the search and purchasing process, and very flexible in finding time to see potential houses.  They were also very "connected" through email, text and phone- both with each other and with us- which really helped us move quickly and efficiently in a seller's market.  We are extremely happy with their service, and extremely happy in the home they helped us purchase!

By the time of purchase we were educated first time home buyers. Carla and Chris took the time to help us understand the pros and cons of decisions, answered all our questions, but most of all ensured we were comfortable and happy. They really paid attention to our needs, and took care of all the small details we wouldn't have otherwise known about. We would strongly recommend their services to anyone.

As executrix of an estate, I recently had occasion to use the services of Carla and Chris Sturino of Royal LePage as real estate agents.

Their initial presentation was of the highest quality, which was the reason I chose them to sell the property.  I found them to be extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the Real Estate Market and they performed a tremendous job of advertising, open houses, showings etc.  At the same time, they never failed to keep me fully informed of the proceedings.

The property sold within 2 weeks of the first open house and sold for almost the asking price, despite the fact that the market was very slow at that time.

Therefore, I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and wish them the best of luck, in their careers.

Dear Chris and Carla,

On behalf of my wife Sandy and myself please accept our sincere appreciation and thanks for all your efforts on the sale of our family home. We were very pleased and impressed with your professionalism in handling our sale. You both demonstrated a high degree of product knowledge and market awareness. The marketing and advertising implemented was effective, regular and in quality publications. Your follow up and feedback was reported promptly and was informative keeping us up to date on showing comments. The strong presence and support of the Royal Lepage West Realty Group offices, all staff and personnel was both efficient and pleasant to deal with. Both of you communicated with us regularly and were easily accessible when required. The negotiations you managed on our behalf obtained 98% of our list price. Our family, as yours, has been in real estate for decades and appreciate what is truly involved in the successful servicing and selling of a property-you did great work for us with your efficient execution during our sale process-Sandy and I are grateful.

Wishing you continued success and the best of health and happiness to you and your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Jack and Sandy

Carla and Chris are excellent agents. We were first time buyers. We had done some research on our own but it was Chris and Carla who were able to educate us. Having a strong background in Real Estate they were able to sit with us to narrow our search and work within our budget. We told them exactly what we wanted and eventually they were able to find us a home. Having worked in the Etobicoke area they are familiar with the good and bad communities. They are extremely knowledgeable which allowed them to point out any potential benefits and flaws with many of the open houses we viewed together. They made themselves available 24/7 and not once did they pressure us into buying something right away. They were patient which worked very well in our favour, since being first time buyers we always wanted to find the perfect home and with their help we were able to do so. They have numerous contacts which saved us time and money in finding lawyers and mortgage brokers. We certainly would recommend them to our friends and when we are ready to move, we would definitely use them again.

My wife and I were looking to sell our condo last year. We had interviewed a number of agents, and had chosen the team of Carla & Chris Sturino. We found them to be professional, pleasant, and above all, very keen to take on our business. While our condo was on the market, Carla & Chris kept us apprised of the market activity, and provided us with numerous MLS searches as we were looking to purchase a new home. We took the searches, and investigated the neighbourhoods, and arranged to see quite a large number of condos. This process spanned a couple of months utilizing weekends, and evening appointments. Carla & Chris were very patient throughout this period of time. When we had decided upon a unit, an offer came in ours, which was handled in an expedient manner by the Sturino`s. Once our sale was firmed up, we had our purchase facilitated by Carla & Chris. This was an effortless process with positive results for everyone concerned. We would highly recommend the dynamic duo of Carla & Chris to anyone considering a sale or purchase. They possess great customer service skills, return phone calls quickly, and are a pleasure to deal with. We would not hesitate to utilize them again if the need should ever arise.

RE: Letter of Recommendation
 
To whom it may concern;
 
If you choose Chris and Carla Sturino for your real estate agents, you have made one of the best decisions toward getting your house sold. As a team, they are professional, thorough and highly competent.
 
In a hot real estate market almost any house will sell, but coming up with the magic figure can involve some digging.
 Had we not chosen Chris and Carla Sturino to sell our father’s home we would have left a considerable amount  
“sitting on the table”.
 
Why? A decision was made to sell the family home after it became clear our father could no longer manage on his own. The home had not been on the market for 60 years and unfortunately, had become very run down over time. Knowing the home needed so much work to bring it up to today’s standards, made it difficult for us to assess a value on the property. Chris and Carla were very sensitive to our reluctance to list the house in its current condition but were confident that the home would appeal to an experienced renovator who was looking for the opportunity to customize it their own way.

It was early March, and not many properties were listed in the area or on our street. This did not deter Chris. He went back many years to check listings and solds to find comparable properties in the neighborhood. He did projected costs for listing those homes today based on market increases to come up with some comparables. He even checked with his sources and factored in the cost for a total renovation to bring the home up to the best market value for the area.

The amount of work they put into securing our business was impressive. Not one agent came close to putting in the same amount of effort in assessing the true value of our property. His hard work paid off in establishing a price for the home that represented fair market value and resulted in 3 firm offers.

They used their knowledge to show us the potential for the property. We had numerous showings, and we accepted an offer for $30,000 over our asking price.

To Chris and Carla, your business is more than a transaction. They realize that selling and buying a home are major life decisions and they handle every aspect of the process with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism.

I would not hesitate in using them again or recommending them to anyone looking for agents who act with integrity and will always work with your best interests in mind.

Sincerely,
