I just recently made the difficult decision to list my duplex. I contacted several agents, took the time and due diligence to interview each of them in person. Chris was prepared for this property, his investor focused knowledge and being very personable made me comfortable hiring him.
He was confident in his listing price (even though I thought it was high, and higher then other agents suggested). but he had a plan and justified it with great detail.
Selling a home is not just stressful, but during our difficult times with Covid, the stress was heightened. Chris did an excellent job keeping me calm, handling the tenants, and keeping the place clean and in check, and he even helped out with the cleaning.
The sale came through with his strategy, and even though I was nervous during negotiation, he was confident the whole time. And like the entire process, he was right – it paid off!!
As a business owner and entrepreneur, I understand the importance of surrounding yourself with the best. And if that’s what you want, this is your guy! Reach out to me personally for any questions.

While going through a difficult time, where I was forced to sell my house due to a divorce, Chris was able to help me get resituated into a great new home. I was under a time constraint, and Chris managed to find me the perfect house, in a nice family-oriented neighborhood. Staying on top of things during the process, everything went very smoothly and we couldn’t be happier with his service.
If you’re thinking of relocating in Ottawa, you will definitely be impressed with Chris’s expertise and service.

I recently hired Chris to handle the listing and sale of a multi-million dollar property that I had owned in downtown Ottawa. Chris was very knowledgeable and professional right from the start. He accurately assessed the property and my situation, and gave sound professional advice on how to proceed. He outlined how he would be able to market the property to generate maximum dollar value with the least amount of inconvenience to me and my tenants.
With the right marketing, Chris was able to generate a very strong offer within 3 days of listing. And to cover any potential issues, he negotiated a very attractive back-up offer just in case the first offer did not go through. In the end, it was a very smooth process that I was extremely happy with. Chris sold my property for 97.2% of asking price.
I would definitely recommend Chris, as he is very hard-working, and provided outstanding service throughout our entire relationship.

My wife and I first met Chris Steeves at an Open House he was holding in Guildwood Estates. We chatted during the viewing and told him we were looking for a home in the Alta Vista area. He followed up shortly thereafter and we arranged a meeting at our home in Heron Park so he could find out what our needs/wants/desires were and how he could best meet our expectations. Thus began a relationship that has lasted over a year and innumerable viewings of homes.
We were very particular about what we wanted, and Chris was very patient and persistent with us. Also, he wasn’t pushy. After numerous showings and a few offers, we finally came across a home on Mountbatten Avenue that fell within our budget and met our needs. We now live there and are very pleased with our purchase. Credit Chris for skillfully steering us through the purchase process, negotiating skillfully, and sticking with us for over a year of viewings.
We’ve entrusted Chris with listing our home in Heron Park. We know he will represent us fairly. He is pragmatic in his approach and knowledgeable about real estate in Ottawa. And patient and persistent. Qualities you want in a real estate agent.”

I recently had the pleasure of having Chris help me through the process of locating and purchasing a townhome downtown Ottawa. During our time together, Chris was very responsive to all my questions and concerns, and provided excellent advice each step of the way. Despite my very short closing period, Chris ensured the experience of buying a new home went very smoothly, with great results.

We hired Chris Steeves to sell two houses–one in Kanata and one in Orleans–and then to buy a house in central Ottawa. Finding a new house was challenging, as we were extremely particular about what we wanted (think unicorn). We can say in all honesty that Chris looks out for the best interests of his clients–he was unbelievably patient with us and never pressured us into buying or spending more than we wanted. He did extensive due diligence researching properties and was quick to find out all of the property details when asked. Chris is dedicated, reliable, and knowledgeable, but it is his easy going nature and positive attitude that make him a true pleasure to work with.

Being relocated to California for work, I had a deadline to get my Ottawa home sold. I contacted Chris and met with him to discuss the listing process and my situation.
Chris was very professional and very knowledgeable on the entire process. He listened carefully to my needs and provided accurate advice on how to best get my place sold for top dollar in today’s market. He did a thorough evaluation of the market I was in, and put together a solid game plan.
My relocation threw us a couple of curve balls, and Chris stayed very patient and worked closely with me to make sure that we were prepared for everything that came our way. In a very challenging market, we secured a solid offer which Chris had done an excellent job of negotiating. He managed to land one of the highest sale prices for my neighborhood. All in all, it went smoothly, and I am very happy with Chris and his services.

My partner and I were looking at homes for about 6 months with Chris. During that time he made a point to keep in close contact with us, and showed incredible patience. After much searching, Chris found the perfect house for us and with his advice and direction we were able to get it at a price within our budget, and on our terms! Thank you Chris – you have been a rock throughout the process.

My partner and I recently decided to relocate to Ottawa. Since we weren’t familiar with Ottawa, we thought it would be best to rent for awhile to familiar with the city and the neighborhoods. We contacted Chris to get some expert advice on finding a good rental home in a great neighborhood. After researching a number of options, Chris helped us secure an beautiful bungalow in Alta Vista. Chris was very patient during the process, and did a great job of educating us on the various neighborhoods and the rental markets. All in all, we are very pleased with the property he found us, and with the deal he negotiated. Since we were from out of town Chris also went above and beyond the call of duty in terms of working around our times and availability. I have worked with many real estate agents in the past and Chris is absolutely one of the best of the best!! I would recommend him unconditionally.

Just thought I would let you know that my husband passed away recently. I will miss him very much. You were always in our minds when we were discussing people that helped us. You are really unforgettable. I hope all is well and good with you and your family.
