Bonjour Chris I had trouble getting into your blog without being coerced to open a Google account... drives me nuts. So here is a little blurb for you: Chris has made buying our condo painless. He has literally held our hand all the way through. To describe him in a nutshell: Efficient, very knowledgeable, punctual, gracious, elegant... THE BEST
Chris and I have done many deals together but where he shone most was on the sale of my first home. Chris was therefor EVERY showing representing me and my house to the best of his abilities. My driveway was always shoveled and Chris was available for any and all of my questions. Chris is young, hungry and determined to offer the best service as a real estate agent. You will not regret hiring him to represent you.

Chris did an amazing job finding me a tenant and helped get my property off the market within a month. During this pandemic it has gotten a little stressful dealing with tenants but Chris did his research and Chris made sure we found the best tenants for my place. He's very professional and responsive if you have any questions Thanks Chris
I have worked with Chris for over 3 years now. He is a hard worker, honest and trustworthy. A great person to have on your team! I have used Chris for my own personal transactions with full confidence. He always negotiates hard on my behalf. Recently he sold a condo for me as an assignment sale. It was during a difficult time. Chris networked and market the property tirelessly. When we had a potential buyer he really went to bat for me on the negotiations and got me a deal I am very pleased with. It surpassed my expectations.
By: Josie and Claudio
It was a such a pleasure meeting and working with you this year. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication listing our very first investment property and finding us an amazing quality tenant in such a short amount of time. As a Realtor myself, I knew you had exactly what it took to get the job done. Not only did you make it seem effortless, you did it in a manner that only a true, top performing real estate professional would.
I highly recommend Chris and his team. He was very thorough with all the work that needed to be completed and the process. Always able to schedule time to speak with him about any questions, quick to provide information, knowledgeable and supportive. Will definately have Chris help me with any future purchases or rentals. - Rick
By: Israel Lattiboudeaire
Chris was extremely helpful throughout the process of me finding my property. He consistently provided me with different options and was willing to consistently meet up with me to discuss the next steps. He was always on time for our appointments and was patient with me when I wasn't. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a property.
Any agent can find you a home, but Chris goes above and beyond that. He makes sure to get you the best price in the best neighbourhood. Chris makes sure that he takes care of his clients from start to finish and even beyond that. This is what makes him incredible and this is why I have used him twice in one year and will continue using him for future transactions. I would without a doubt recommend Chris Deru to all my friends and family. 100%! Keep up the fantastic work Chris. Hard to find someone so dedicated and caring like you. Best Regards, Claudia
By: Paula Lee
Best agent in the city…hands down! Thank you for everything @chrisderu your commitment to your clients is unmatched
By: Daniel Milgrom
Chris is a fantastic realtor, and I recommend him wholeheartedly. Chris does not try to force his clients (buyers or sellers) into making decisions without looking at the situation very thoughtfully and carefully. Chris is patient, and helped us continuously navigate a difficult and changing market landscape. Above and beyond just helping you buy, sell or lease your property, Chris helped and will continue to help us along our journey of real estate with the timing that works for us. Not just another agent, but someone who works with your best interest in mind - Chris does business the right way. Daniel Milgrom
By: Claire Mcgee
Chris stood out to me as unusually considerate while I was hunting for a Toronto apartment. He communicated with forethought and professionalism, which stands out in a fast paced corner of real estate.
By: Anita Citrine
Chris is an experienced realtor, who is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market. He is very personable and trustworthy, going the extra mile to ensure our property was presented in the best possible manner to attract greatest interest. We're very pleased with his work and highly recommend him!
By: Michael Myers
Huge respect for Chris and the value he brought to our team through his research, network, professionalism and relentlessness. I went to Chris to sell my property in Brantford and he understood what I needed in order to succeed in that market. He was able to refer me to a brokerage that had more experience within the Brantford region. That brokerage turned out to be just what I needed and got the job done. Chris was also actively checking in and following along with how the process was going where most realtors would have just sat on the sideline and waited for their referral cheque. So much love and appreciation for what Chris brings to the table.
By: Emily Rosen
We were fortunate enough to have Chris to represent us in leasing our condo in Roncy. He is an extremely professional, friendly, and hard working agent with outstanding communication and gumption. As first time landlords, he walked us through the entire process and went out of his way to ensure we were knowledgable and comfortable the whole way through. Ultimately he secured excellent tenants for us in a short period of time. Highly recommend Chris 10/10. Definitely look forward to working with him again!
By: Arman Golizadeh
If you're looking for a knowledgable, honest, and hardworking agent that provides exceptional service Chris is who you want to represent you. Working with Chris was a great experience and without a doubt he exceeded my expectations. He knows the Toronto market extremely well and has a deep knowledge base of all the downtown neighbourhoods. He understood my needs as a client and went above and beyond to make sure I was getting the best deal possible. He provided nothing but top-notch service from start to finish. It can be very stressful in a tough market but his support, transparency, and patience allowed me to finally buy what I was looking for. I have nothing but positive things to say about him!
By: B C
If you're looking for a professional, personable, driven realtor that will put your goals and needs first, look no further. Chris was incredibly supportive from the first listing to following the close of our purchase. There was never a question too big or too small. He always provided thorough and balanced information, something we truly appreciated as first time homebuyers. We cannot recommended Chris highly enough!
By: Paula Lee
Chris is a true professional. Hands down one of the best in the business. He took the lead from beginning to end - he listened attentively, and was always quick to respond to my questions throughout. Highly recommend Chris for all your real estate needs.
Chris is great to work with and explains the process so that it is easy to understand. Also he goes the extra mile to accommodate you by making a video for you even if you can't make the viewing. If you need someone knowledgeable and good to work with, Chris is great.
By: Amanda Lidster
It was an absolute pleasure working with Chris to find a condo. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable and quick to answer any of my questions or concerns. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a realtor!
By: Alexandra Ignagni
Chris was a the perfect real estate agent. He acted in my best interest when it came to negotiations and made it an easy and seamless process. As a first time buyer, he was patient and explained everything to me. Chris ensured I was getting the best value property for my budget.
By: Sunny KC
I started my home buying experience with Chris in January 2020 and would recommend him to new and seasoned home buyers any day. His professional but personable nature coupled with a breadth of real estate knowledge, enables a new buyer to feel at ease and empowered to make the best purchasing decisions for themselves. He exercises a high degree of patience and doesn’t make you feel pressured in any way. He provides the facts when assessing whether or not a property is the right/good choice for you. In being a busy individual myself, I deeply appreciated his forthrightness and quick response times. I appreciated that he listened to me and only suggested places I would have a genuine interest in. At the end, when going through with a purchase, he was an amazing support - empathetic and understanding of the emotional and stressful toll it can take for a new homebuyer. If you are looking for a realtor in Toronto, definitely reach out to Chris! Thank you, Chris!!!
By: Leslie Hope
I recently was able to lease my commercial space in the west Junction of Toronto, all the while I was in California. Chris was super responsive, transparent, listened, and a real pro. I was confident he was advising me on a good match for what I wanted in my space, and was so pleased when he found my new tenant! And, I was so grateful that during these challenging times, he was able to get somebody in quickly. THANK YOU, Chris!
By: Pedram Behzad
Chris Deru is the ultimate depiction of a real estate agent who always has his clients best interests at heart. Throughout the process of selling our condo and purchasing a new home Chris time and time again exemplified why we made the right choice of working together. My wife & I were always confident that Chris was there for us anytime we had questions, concerns or just general knowledge about the real estate market. His professionalism coupled with industry expertise allowed us to have peace of mind when the negotiations started. Chris was extremely patient and was accepting that our young son was with us throughout the open houses and often looked after him as we explored our new home. If I were to recommend Chris to a friend I would do so without hesitancy and feel 100 percent confident in his abilities. Simply put, if you want an agent who will go above and beyond your search stops here. Thanks again Chris
By: Andrea Lee
It was my first time renting property in Toronto and Chris made the entire experience effortless. He took the time to send us listings, arranged all of the showings we had asked for (and accompanied us!), and once we put in the offer he had secured it in just a few days. He was extremely professional in dealing with the other parties involved in the transaction. Chris is the kind of agent that will go above and beyond to find what you're asking for and more! He is determined, hardworking, and beyond all that very genuine and honest - all the qualities you hope for in an agent. I highly recommend him if you're looking for real estate!
By: Chris Hapke
Chris was a fantastic choice to represent us for both the sale of my partner's condo on Bay St. and our home purchase in the Junction/Stockyards. He was patient, responsive and tactful over the course of our year search. His insights allowed us to navigate the tricky COVID situation and close both deals with our dream outcome. We recommended him to a friend who was in a similar situation and everything worked out great there too. Thanks again!
By: David Lafontaine
Chris was always very quick to respond to our questions and made the process of finding a condo a whole lot easier. He is a true professional and I highly recommend him if you're looking for real estate.
By: Hassan K
Just closed a downtown condo with Chris now and I am delighted. I have dealt with other realtors before, but must say dealing with Chris is a pleasure. He's responsive, knowledgeable and proactive. My transaction went smooth, felt effortless and above all got a great deal that I am very satisfied with. Will definitely not be our last partnership together!

By: Mark Addo
Chris Deru is one of the hardest working realtor in Toronto. I approached him to sell my condo on assignment and he made me feel like an important client, and he took the time out to research the price of the condo and find me a reputable buyer that was able to purchase the condo and pay the profits as well as my deposit that I made. I got exactly what I sought out when I came to Chris and he delivered. I will highly recommend him if you need anything real estate related. Thanks Chris!!
By: Kimberly Service
We HIGHLY recommend Chris Deru to those looking to sell or buy a home. Chris sold our Toronto townhouse for above asking and within three days. We listed first thing in January, which is not always an easy time of year to sell but Chris was able to draw in tons of potential buyers and secure the sale with ease! We had already purchased our current home and were feeling extreme pressure to sell quickly. Chris was incredibly reassuring and informative. He provided comparables for our neighbourhood and guidance that allowed us to make decisions confidently. Chris is insanely hard working and spent upwards of 14 hours per day at our home to hold open houses, and he was able to elicit multiple offers immeditaley. The pictures of our place were fantastic, as was the listing in general so we had great turn out. Chris kept us informed throughout the open house, which I truly appreciated. He was always accessible and answered us promptly. We had a smooth and quick sale and are so grateful for Chris’s knowledge, professionalism and wonderful personality! He is truly a kind, genuine, and thoughtful realtor who wants the best for his clients. Chris goes above and beyond to make the experience positive. Thank you Chris! We are so incredibly appreciative of you! Selling our first home was a wonderful experience and we look forward to working with Chris again in the future.
By: Eric Segreto
Chris recently led the sale of my partner’s condo on Bay St and represented us both for the purchase of our new home near Danforth and Woodbine – and we couldn’t be happier! Chris was fully dedicated and invested throughout the entire process and was always available to answer any of our questions. He was very knowledgeable and took a very strategic approach to both the sale and purchase. Whether it was the stressful offers days or the challenge of selling during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Chris was always able to make things very clear, simple and stress-free for us. Thanks again, Chris!
By: Christine LeBannister
2 years ago Chris made the whole process of buying my first property easy and stress free. He’s personable, driven and extremely knowledgeable. I felt like he was always available to answer any questions I had as a novice homebuyer. I would recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy or rent a property in Toronto!
By: Taribo S-Douglas
Chris comes highly recommended when selling or buying your home. He is passionate, professional and very pleasant to work with. He is always thinking about meeting his client's needs/requirements. When you call him he is always there and will call you back promptly if he misses your call. I guarantee, he will give you first class service. That's what I got!
By: omar rasheed
In a saturated field where every corner has a few real estate agents...Chris is by the far the best. He's helped my wife and I with our property, and he's one of the hardest working customer service oriented people I've met. He will do his best to help you according to your situation. He is super patient, very prompt, and will always get back to you and will go out of his way to help you. No matter how busy he is he will give you a time of day and never rush you. Highly recommended him for your real estate needs!
By: Anand mistry
If you want someone who goes above and beyond what a real estate agent does then Chris is your guy. He goes at your pace, won't rush you into anything and makes sure you find the perfect place. Even after I got the place, Chris was still following up and checking up on me to see how the place was doing. Chris is a great agent and I'd highly recommended him if you're looking for a real estate agent.
By: Miriem Husain
I really can't recommend Chris highly enough. Rather than me travelling from Ottawa to Toronto for viewings, Chris volunteered to see places for me and take videos. He was highly professional and always available to deal with my questions, even on the weekend. In the end, he found me a great apartment and shepherded me through each stage of the process. Overall a real joy to deal with. Thanks again Chris!
By: Sheldon F
Chris was extremely professional with helping us secure a lease in the heart of downtown Toronto. He spent time filtering through our criteria and after visiting a few locations, we placed an offer on our top choice. Chris went above and beyond in terms of repeatedly following up with the listing agent to ensure our offer and value as suitable tenants were effectively communicated. Thanks Chris!

What an incredible Real Estate Agent!! Bought a condo in December and Chris made sure that I got the best purchase price and went above and beyond to make sure that all details of the transaction and move went well. I could not have asked for anything more. A million thanks and I will for sure be calling you again and proud to refer you to friends and family.
In June my landlord (and family friend) decided to sell their condo that I was living in. I met Chris Deru when he was brought in to handle the sale. I found him to be professional, punctual, courteous and constantly went above and beyond during the sale of the condo. As my landlord lives out of town, Chris handled everything from having his electrician to come in and install new pot lights, to putting on a fresh coat of paint, he even had a professional photographer come in that took beautiful photos that made my place look better than I’ve even seen it. Needing to find a new rental unit myself I jumped at Chris’s offer to act as a rental broker for me. I had pretty particular requirements but he was dedicated to find me something I would love. He sent me new listings every morning and was always available to go check out a listing in person. After a couple weeks we found the perfect place and he handled all paper work and helped me with negotiations. I know I would not have been able to find this place without him. Thanks Chris!
By: Ashley McNaughton
Working with Chris was a wonderful experience. He provided solid advice and was so easy to talk to. My condo sold for way over asking in ONE DAY! Couldn't be happier.
By: Galo Tamburini
If you are looking for a young, hungry, professional and efficient real estate agent in the GTA ( Greater Toronto Area ) you search should end here. Mr.Deru has helped my on numerous projects and has never let me down once. Give him your criteria and budget and he will find it faster then any other agent I have ever worked with. He even found me a listing before it came up on the market which ended up being a beautiful investment..... I have never written reviews before for anything but Christopher has worked very hard for me in the last few years. On each sale we have gotten over asking due to his determination to be at every showing ( unheard of ) and maki sure each property shows exceptionally. Thank you Chris for all your hard work in the last few years. Thanks to a good portfolio and a strong agent I have moved to bigger and better deals.

Chris helped us sell our home. He was patient and professional with our crazy and was there for us whenever we needed him. He went above and beyond what a relator would do and we really appreciated it.

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
