Clients' Testimonials

KIND WORDS FROM CLIENTS

Chris and Noni are two of the most detailed orientated agents I have ever met. Their client care is definitely above the average. I've always personally remembered seeing Chris' name in the East York area for as long as I can remember. Chris is a staple in the East York community. Definitely 5 Stars to Chris and Noni!

Sam Trudy

Chris and Noni provided us with a great experience! We have bought and sold a number of homes in East York and I wish we had used them a lot sooner. They are very caring and did everything to ensure we were well represented. Between the two of them they have an extensive amount of experience and that's what you want when selling or buying. They had our house sold in record time, with a record breaking amount. They are professional, caring and dedicated. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Phillip Kotanidis

Chris and Noni assisted us in selling the house this Fall. They are a wonderful couple to work with and they followed up on everything from beginning to end. Knowing that we were first time home sellers, they explained every little detail of the process to us. They've definitely made the entire experience worry and stress free for us. They always did what was best in our interest and did not push us to do anything that was not in our favor. They were true to their words and delivered everything they promised. They took care of our staging and was also nice enough to get us a self storage unit to put our stuff away during the open house and offer presentation. They are extremely knowledgeable on what the market conditions are and was spot on in regards to what my house can sell for. They were really easy to work with and they followed up with us regularly to make sure everything is okay. I have also asked Chris for opinions/recommendations on many occasions and he is very willing to help me and point me in the right direction. I had an exceptional experience working with Chris and Noni and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy/sell a property.

Chris and Noni were very helpful with the purchase of our house a few years ago. From sending us listing options to open houses and the final offer day, they were available throughout the process to make sure it went smoothly and we had the perfect experience (not to mention we purchased under asking!) My husband and I were first time home buyers and Chris made us feel very comfortable and certain with our purchase. The expertise in East York was very helpful and ensured we were purchasing in the right neighborhood for our family. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in Toronto.

Nicole Tinker

I've had the opportunity to work with Chris and Noni and it was such a great experience. They helped me find the right property in a very challenging market. They were always available so we could get to new properties as they came onto the market, until we found the perfect one. Chris was instrumental in our bid winning and showed me why I chose him to help me with this purchase. I liked working with Chris so much that I recommended him for my daughter's first condo purchase and now she and her fiancé live in an awesome property. They are a great team to work with and I would not hesitate in recommending them for my next purchase.

Ian Abramson

Both my husband and I can't begin to express our thanks and gratitude to all you have done in helping us purchase our first home in Toronto. Never once did we feel rushed or pressured, you taught us what to look for a long the way and you were always patient with our constantly changing minds. Working with the Chris Clarke Team is like working with family. It is a rare thing to find such genuine people not only in life but especially in business. They don't care about just a dollar at the end of the day - they truly care about you and finding the perfect home to fit both your budget and your life style. Coming from a small town in Alberta making such a large purchase in such an aggressive market could of been a stressful and scary process but we were lucky enough to have someone on your side working day and night for us that we knew had our best interests at heart. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for giving us confidence in our purchase, for your patience (god knows how many houses we dragged you too before we found the "one"!) and most importantly thank you for helping us create a home

Daryl & Josiah

Thank you both for the outstanding job you did selling my condominium. Your professionalism, knowledge and sense of humour made the whole process a lot less frightening for me. You provided excellent service with an eye to detail and great recommendations every step of the way. Which given everything else happening at the same time was very much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to my friends, as I know they will be in good hands. Thank you again for everything you did.

Terri

You are always professional, patient, and understanding no matter what the circumstance. I appreciate also that you are always up front and honest even though we may want to go in another direction. You are always careful in letting your client do as they want, even though you've advised them otherwise.

Mary

My house was listed with another agent for 6 months, unfortunately with no results. After interviewing several agents, my decision to go with you was obviously the right one. Sold on the first day of MLS listing! You now have yet another very satisfied customer.

Penny

The dust has settled around me and I would like to say thank you! Thank you all for your understanding, patience, professionalism, friendliness, stick-to-it-ive-ness and help! I'm sure that the process of buying and selling a home can be quite a nightmare but I always felt I was in good hands and I'm glad to say that I think the whole experience was quite humane!

Kerry

I found Chris and Noni to be thoroughly apprised of the state of the resale market in this area. They were courteous, dedicated, completely professional and extremely effective in attaining a satisfactory outcome. If you want results reflecting the best your property has to offer, try this team. Not only were they extremely helpful and professional, they also brought me an offer more than $125,000 over the asking price.

John

I would like to especially thank you for the way you kept in touch and were always available to answer even the simplest of our questions. Your strong negotiating skills secured us an excellent price on the sale of our home, and a great price on the purchase of our new one. I must say you went above and beyond the call of duty on our behalf and we appreciate this very much.

Elise

Our former East York home was our first, so it was also the first time we were on the selling side of a house. You made it look so easy: 99% of list price within two weeks! But the quick sale and high price were just a part of it. Both of us train customer service skills to employees at large corporations, so we truly appreciate everything you did for us: fully explaining the process to us, making sure we understood every detail, always keeping us informed, always returning phone calls promptly and going the extra mile with my company's relocation. Your cool, calm and collected nature that helped keep us the same. I guess the best way to thank you for your exceptional customer service is this: we look forward to referring you to our friends and business colleagues!

Rob & Tina

My wife and I want to thank you for the excellent job you did selling our house. Beyond the astronomical price we received, we are thankful for how you put us both at ease during a very new process. You were so helpful in getting us ready for the sale, hooking us up with a plumber in a pinch, and extremely professional during closing night. Every little problem that popped up was handled quickly and with such even calm that never once did we start to freak out. We appreciate how professionally you handled the bidding and the advice you gave us to upgrade our home to maximize its value. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know and will definitely ring you when we are looking to get back in the market. It's funny, I was out at an event last night and mentioning that you were our agent and I got the comment, “No wonder your house sold so quickly...he's the best in the business.” Thanks for everything.

Stephanie & Jason

We can thank Chris and Noni enough for selling our house. Both Noni and Chris are very professional and down to earth. Noni did a fabulous job staging our house. Stephanie took amazing pictures of our home and she was very professional/friendly when she came to our house. Chris kept us in the loop throughout the sale of our house. Great team to work with and I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home. Rosanne and Hector Portelance

Rosanne Portelance

Chris helped my parents sell my late grandfathers condo and they've only had great things to report. Chris made the process painless for them and was always cool, calm and collected. They can't thank him enough for all his hard work during this difficult time.

Jacquelyn Douglas-Faris

First class experience using Chris and Noni. They are a phenomenal team - words cannot describe how happy we are with the service they provided us. They are committed, thorough, and their goal was to please us!

Philip Menna

We are completely satisfied with the transparent and straightforward service and professionalism delivered by Noni and Chris during our latest real estate transactions. They made us feel very comfortable through the process of both selling our condo and buying our new detached house. Noni was always ready with thoughtful ideas and was quick to raise red flags in many situations. To aid in selling our condo. Noni and Chris’s staging team were excellent, not only helping us to clear and store our personal items but also delivering the staging items quickly and with care. In a competitive seller’s market, Noni was persistent on a particular property of interest helping us land a successful bid on our current home. If you are buying or selling your home, go with Noni and Chris.

Andrew Jack

Noni and Chris are a team of professional realtors. Throughout the sale of our home we were constantly reassured that our interests were considered and maintained. The knowledge base is evident with this team as they were so gracefully able to sell our home with no inconvenience to my family. Thank you for your efforts and we look forward to working with you guys again.

Kevin Charles

The truly best realtors in the city. As someone in my twenties, I wasn’t sure I wanted someone I hadn’t met but I saw their billboard and my husband and I took our chance and they got us the best and nicest house!! Love them!!

S C F

Chris and Noni are phenomenal; they made the entire experience of selling our home stress free. They answered all our questions and concerns with patience and with our best interests in mind. They are amazing and I highly recommend them to anyone!!

Lauren Alexander

Professional couple who know exactly what they are doing. Very accessible and punctual. We had a very limited time and high expectations. They managed to exceed our expectations and help us finish the year on a high note.

Farzi J

Chris and Noni were an absolute delight to work with on the sale of our home. There wasn't a doubt that the team knew the local neighbourhood and market and were very clear in setting expectations for the timeline and strategy for getting top dollar for our home that had it's unique aspects due to it's location that would require the "right" buyer to see the real value we saw in the home when we purchased it many years ago. We received a very solid offer within the timeline Chris' outlined and when some of the terms put forward by the buyers were not agreeable, he helped us devise a strategy that got us what we wanted. Noni was great in directing us in the staging of our home but still making it feel like home as well. We would definitely recommend the Chris Clarke Team if you are in their area and don’t at all be surprised by some of the personal touches that come with their service, that go above and beyond their job description, such as personal photographer.

Evan Groenke

Chris & Noni were great partners in helping me find a perfect investment property. They were courteous, patient, knowledgeable, informed and always available. Unlike other RE agents, Chris did not pressure me in making the transaction and infact encouraged me to walk away from the ones which were not a good fit. Our relationship didn't end with buying the house as they were also helpful in getting it leased with good tenants. I'll highly recommend them to everyone!

Kashif Malik

Chris Clarke is a known quantity in the East Toronto community. Along with his partner Noni, he works hard to meet client needs.

Adam Chisholm

Third time Chris & Noni have sold properties for our family. First instance was sister who was so impressed with this team that she suggested we call them when it came time to sell our parents' home and just recently, our very unique property sold over asking. Excellent results each and every time. This team sure knows its business. They are there from start to finish with advice, explanations and support throughout. I'm certain it won't be the last time we call them.

Gaetana Schaefer

In the Real Estate Agents’ world Chris Clarke is One of a Kind. He is not an agent, he is The Agent. He is smart, focused and detail oriented, will listen carefully about what you need or desire and will fight for you to get it. And ... you will get it! Before working with him, I had a house on the market for quite some time and I wasn't able to sell it for the price I wanted. With him coming in the picture, the house was staged differently, the whole strategy was different than what I thought or used before and the results were very good. He did everything by the book and sold it pretty quick. Chris is direct, honest, has a “no nonsense” approach to people/situations, and will always watch out for your best interest. Trust between a Realtor and their client is crucial and he can build that. He has a great sense of humor and answers your questions, showing his many years of experience and expertise. I would highly recommend working with him.

Michaela O

Chris and Noni were very professional and personable when helping us sell our original home and purchase our new home. From the staging, marketing and listing to the offer night and purchase process on both sides, we appreciated their insights and experience. Thanks Chris and Noni!

Shauna Cook

My wife and I worked with Chris and Noni and 2018 to buy our current home and sell our previous residence. We interviewed a number of agents and they were the clear choice for us once we met them. We liked them and their approach a lot, and felt comfortable that they would deliver for us. They were also highly recommended by close friends who had worked with them a couple of years earlier. Overall we were able to successfully purchase our new home within our budget despite a multiple bidding scenario. Chris took us to see numerous listings in the build-up and his vast experience was a huge help as we got our heads around what was available in the market. It is noteworthy to mention how many listing agents we came across who were clearly aware of Chris’ track record in the industry. It felt good to know that we were working with someone who was well-regarded and respected. When it came time to list our house the strategy Chris and Noni used worked out perfectly and generated a great and very fair offer. They were quite helpful with the staging and the marketing materials looked very strong. We sold our house for considerably higher than the asking price and in fact managed to receive “the number” that we were really hoping it was worth. Consistently I can say that throughout the time we worked with Chris and Noni they honestly made us feel like we were their only clients. That was a great feeling to have during such an at times stressful process. I would recommend the Chris Clarke Team without any reservations. Chris and Noni are the best.

John Dalrymple

We bought a home with Noni & Chris back in January of this year. We had been doing our own search for months by going to Open Houses etc. We were still relatively new to the city and province we really had no idea what to expect and were wanting to take our time. We met Noni at one of their listed properties that we called about. Never once did we feel rushed or pressured with her. Working with the Chris Clarke Team was like working with family. It is a rare thing to find such genuine people not only in life but especially in business. They are extremely knowledgeable and don't care about just a dollar at the end of the day - they truly take the time to make you the priority. Coming from a small town in Alberta making such a large purchase in such an aggressive market could of been a stressful and scary process but thankfully had someone on our side working day and night for us that we knew had our best interests at heart!
