“My condo was a unique situation in that it was not a typical condo. Located in a wonderful neighbourhood, this modernized 1100 sqft space was in an updated Rosedale mansion. However the building was under construction and an owned parking spot did not come with the unit. Two challenges for curb appeal and in an area, many wanted an owned parking spot. When I first met Christopher, he was one of six possible agents I could have chosen to work with however he was the only one, to tell me if I could wait until spring to sell, then I should do so. He wanted what was best for me; not just the commission on a sale. His understanding of unique spaces, condo operating and reserve funds and overall market pricing was invaluable. Christopher was a pleasure to work with and he strives to help you make the right decisions for your property and your situation. His knowledge of the Toronto market, different neighbourhoods, housing and condo sales, and ability to provide different solutions within this competitive marketplace was appreciated. Considering there are over 40,000 agents in Toronto, finding the right one can be a challenge. Christopher is the right agent; whatever your situation. I would use Christopher over and over; buying or selling.
– Catherine Melchior (Rosedale)
“Initially it was difficult for us to imagine selling our home as I’m sure other home owners can share this feeling with empathy. With Chris we never had to explain our emotional attachment to our home as he simply understood and knew what to do. He is respectful, not nosey, and had done all his homework to ensure we maximize the value of our home and our time. The most incredible thing…he was able to sell our property and buy us a new home in the same week. A home we now gratefully live in knowing he gained the respect of the selling agent to direct us to a final sale with the owner’s approval. Chris made all this happen while coordinating a modest front page interview with Globe and Mail Real Estate weekend edition for the sale. As a family of four we inherently value the intangibles in life and with Chris we felt the mutual understanding that leaving a home close to the best chicken wings in town is a close second to finding us a new home near a hockey rink for my 8 year old.
Thank you Chris!”
– Aki and Sheila Abe (King Street West & Leaside)
“Over the years, my husband and I have bought and sold our homes using a number of different real estate agents. Our experiences have ranged from okay to horrific. Most recently I was in the position of having to buy, sell and move on my own due to my husband’s illness. I was fortunate enough to be put in touch with Christopher Bibby for both transactions. This was a very difficult and stressful time for me and my family.
Christopher made it the best real estate experience I’ve ever had. Why? Because he truly went above and beyond in support of us through the entire process with no pressure, only support and good advice. And to my surprise with integrity and a desire to find a win- win for everyone. Wow. Not the real estate experience I expected. It doesn’t stop there. Long past the respective closings, he continues to be there for advice and support.
He has definitely earned our respect and loyalty. If we ever find ourselves in the position of having to sell and/or buy again, it’s safe to say I know who we will call on to help us through the process. We will also, without hesitation recommend them as the go to people for friends, family & anyone else who is looking to buy/sell.”
– Gail Desabrais Hazell & Family (Summerhill & Rosedale)
“We decided to work with Christopher to sell our home, a condo in downtown Toronto, after interviewing a number of realtors who had experience representing buyers and/or sellers in that market, with the prevailing criteria being his open and direct communication style and skills, his responsiveness to questions and requests, his prior success and reputation in the market, and particularly for his being a quick study, both on our motivations and priorities in selling and on what might attract buyers to our unit in particular.
We enjoyed working with him: he was able to structure the timing of and approach to listing and showing the unit to accommodate our being mostly out of town, the departure of a previous tenant, and the preferences of the condo corporation. His advanced preparation allowed him to move quickly when the unit became available, and the info he provided us in advance allowed us to understand the process leading up to and following the sale.
And, finally, we were delighted with the outcome: our unit sold at the high end of the comparable market after one day of showing, to a buyer to whom we were delighted to leave our home.”
– Janet Moody & Christian Burks (Entertainment District)
“A unique opportunity to talk about a unique real estate agent and person. I had carefully watched as Christopher sold my son his very first loft last year, giving him incredible advice and educating him about the market as a first time buyer. I had been skeptical – my experience with agents has been less than impressive. Christopher was fabulous, so when I decided to downsize from my Forest Hill home and buy a condo, there was never a question that Christopher would be the only agent I would use. A great listener, he understood all my very (perhaps overly?) specific requirements and showed me only those that he knew would fit the bill. We saw only a few units and I bought a great place! He knows the market inside and out, carefully strategizes each move, is firm when necessary (but always in the most professional and respectful way) and totally trustworthy. If you want the best (and shouldn’t we always?), there’s only one agent to trust your next home to and that’s Christopher.”
– Sheri Langer (Yorkville)
“Chris truly was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable about our neighbourhood, knew exactly how to best sell our condo, devised a detailed plan, executed it perfectly, and was on schedule. We had a waterfront condo, and he advised to have it staged. He planned the painters, the movers, as well as the staging company, which made our job very easy. When the offers started coming in, he was great at communicating the situation with us, and was confident in his game plan for getting top value for our property. We ended up getting multiple offers and were very pleased with the final result. The best part about the whole process was that you could tell that Chris really cared about us, and wanted to do a good job. He was very professional, but also friendly. We feel lucky that he was our realtor, he made the whole process very enjoyable. My wife and I would recommend him to anyone.”
– Milka & Jovan Lukovich (Harbourfront)
“Anyone is in great hands with Christopher. He has a great understanding of the city, its neighbourhoods and home ownership opportunities within it. When selling my home, Christopher has a firm offer within two days of being listing for full asking. As a first time condo buyer, I was impressed by Christopher’s knowledge of many buildings and the special requirements of assessing a condo purchase. He is an excellent agent. He takes time to get to know your style, specific needs and tolerance for risk. As well, he’s fun. I enjoyed every minute of the time I spend with him, selling my house and buying a condo. I was completely satisfied with both transactions.”
– Gillian Kerr (Distillery District)
“I hardly ever write testimonials, but you have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. You have integrity and are extremely professional. You also were well prepared and knowledgeable about the real estate market in Toronto and how to effectively market our Condo for sale. We especially appreciated your style; realistic, confident and honest. You made the process very easy for us and exceeded our expectations by selling our condo faster and for more than we expected. We never felt pressure to do anything and were 100% comfortable with marketing plan. We hope to work with you again in the future, and I will be recommending you to friends and family.”
– Christopher & Natalie Wood (Queen West/Trinity Bellwoods)
“We knew from our first meeting with Chris that we were in capable hands. Chris has gone through the process of listing, showing, and negotiating the sale of condos so many times that he is truly expert in all aspects of the experience. We placed our faith in his depth of experience and it paid off: our unit sold faster and at a considerably higher price than we had expected – and actually set a record for our building. We also appreciated how much Chris respected our time, and made the listing process as effortless as possible. We highly recommend Chris to anyone considering selling their condo in the 416, or beyond.”
– Gordon Mcguire & Heather Mills (King Street West)
“We interviewed six agents when my parents decided to sell their townhouse off of King Street. Christopher stood far above anyone else we had interviewed. Christopher was extremely confident in his ability to sell the property for the most ever in the complex and in a matter of days that is what happened. His pricing and marketing strategy made the most sense. We will not consider another agent for any of our family transactions as long as Christopher remains in the business.”
– Carlos Desousa (King Street West)
“When my husband and I decided to sell our condominium in the Distillery District we chose Christopher due to his track record in the neighbourhood and exposure we became accustomed to throughout the years. Watching Christopher comment on market conditions last year on CBC news during an unstable economic time made us comfortable enough that we were working with a reliable source and an extremely competent agent. Our property sold $21,000 over asking with three offers on its first day of being listed. Thank you again Christopher!”
– Pauline & Peter Marchan (Distillery District)
“I was impressed with Christopher’s professionalism when he handled the sale of my townhouse. Since then I have engaged his services for three additional real estate transactions. I find Christopher to be diligent, caring and committed to client satisfaction. Christopher delivers positive results.”
– Wayne MacInnis (Cabbagetown)
“Christopher created a marketing plan for my property which resulted in five competing offers. We were able to sell my condominium well over the asking price in less than a week, with a closing that suited my next purchase with Christopher – a larger property downtown within walking distance to my business. Since, I have sent numerous friends and family to work with him and will definitely use him again when I make another transaction in Toronto.”
– Anat Davidson (Entertainment District)
“Chris is an exceptionally talented and knowledgeable agent. He has a strong commercial acumen and is excellent at identifying properties with a high value proposition for his clients. I was looking to purchase a property to make a financial return and to enjoy a better lifestyle – Chris found me a condo that maximizes both! When working with Christopher to sell I found him to be honest, straight forward and extremely professional. My property was sold in a matter of days for over asking. Thank you Chris!”
– Stephen Hodgson (Queen West/Trinity Bellwoods)
“Clint and I’s experience in working with Christopher Bibby’s team was fantastic.
He was always responsive and shared creative marketing strategies to list our condo while being aware of the city’s real estate trends. Having a pulse on what today’s buyers are looking for!!!
Chritopher sold our condo in one day!! Thank you!!! We will definitely keep you in mind for the next time and be sure to share our positive feedback with our friends and family.”

“Christopher Bibby and his associates are all you could ask for and more. They go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Taking the extra time to ensure everything moves quick and smoothly. They are raising the bar for Toronto real estate.”
– Tiffany Huta (Parkdale)
“Christopher is exceptional at what he does! He understands the market conditions and recognizes value. He got me multiple offers for my condominium in The Morgan and it sold for well over the asking price! Christopher also helped me win a bidding war in the Hudson for my new home.”
– Jonathan Oldman (King Street West)
“Working with Christopher exceeded my expectations. When selling my condo, his knowledge, expertise and strategic planning made me feel comfortable listing with him. As a result of his efforts, my condo received fifteen offers and sold over asking. Definitely a positive experience!”
– Alison Medved (Liberty Village)
“I had a fantastic experience with Chris as my agent. He made me feel comfortable and never pushed, but rather allowed me to choose the right place for me, while providing the guidance I needed while making my first buy!”
– Colin Macdonald (Leslieville)
“As first time buyers and seller’s my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the condo hunting and selling experience with Christopher. He was patient with our questions, indecisiveness and difficult schedules. Christopher was always extremely responsive and diligent with his follow up. When we finally found our perfect home he helped us navigate through the overwhelming process; and constantly checked in to make sure that we felt comfortable and looked after. He reminded us of our decided upon parameters and criteria and was an excellent sober second thought. The sale of our suite was just as smooth as the purchase. Not only was he a fabulous agent, but also proved to be an excellent couple’s condo counsellor!! Christopher went from agent to trusted friend and we knew he always had our best interests at heart. Thank you for your direction, knowledge and friendship Christopher.”
– Adil & Fazilah Khlafan (Queens Quay)
