Introducing Chris Fenton
Chris Fenton is a Real Estate Advisor serving Port Alberni, Parksville and Qualicum on Vancouver Island, with a dedication to straightforward advice.
If, upon talking with Chris Fenton for the first time, you are left with a feeling of trustworthiness, there is a good reason. Over his 20 year career Chris has helped countless clients on Vancouver Island with honest, straightforward advice when it comes to buying and selling real estate. Chris is renowned among colleagues, clients and the media alike for his innovation, integrity and real estate intellect. The family man has two young children, and prides himself on a healthy work/life balance. It is for this reason, coupled with an overwhelming desire to provide his Vancouver Island clients with an amazing real estate experience, that he has built a group of real estate specialists.
Royal LePage Pacific Rim Realty - The Fenton Group is a boutique real estate marketing brokerage serving Port Alberni, Parkville, Qualicum, Ucluelet and Tofino. Each member of the firm was hand selected by Chris for their extraordinary talent and integrity. The firm's philosophy is simple, treat every single property like it is a million dollar listing, and treat every client as if they are the most important person in the world. The results speak for themselves - in their first year Royal LePage ranked The Fenton Group in the top 1% of real estate agents in Canada.
Chris believes that in order to have a long career in real estate there are a few key ingredients. "There are a handful of values you can't compromise on; genuine care, attention to detail, an innovative mindset, mastery of negotiation, and above all else, surrounding yourself with amazing people." These ingredients have led to a long list of accolades. In 2018 Chris was inducted into the Royal LePage National Chairman's Club as the #44 ranked agent in Canada out of nearly 18,500. The same year, The Fenton Group was awarded the Royal LePage Top Ten Award for British Columbia. In 2016 Chris was awarded the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board's Realtor's Care Award which recognizes a handful of Realtor's who give back and improve the quality of life in their local communities. This was the same year he was awarded the Top New Corporate Partner for Action Against Hunger Canada.
To remain innovative and focused, Chris participates in a number of Canadian and International Mastermind Groups that focus heavily on client needs. He has also been a guest speaker at a number of real estate conferences.
While Chris is proud of his firm's accomplishment, it's most important to him to stay grounded. "At the end of the day, I can honestly say I've never focused on earning or awards," he's quick to point out. "My group and I strive to be reachable, approachable, and brutally honest. I believe that it's all about our client's best interest. By striving to always put the client first, we end up doing what's best for ourselves. In fact, it's the deals that I've talked our clients out of that I'm most proud of."
Here's What Chris' Clients are Saying!
Esther contacted me right away. I laid out the criteria and the search was on. We went through a number of properties in Alberni Valley. During each site visit, I sent pics and a short video of the home and surrounding property to my sister.
Within a very short time, my sister decided on a home, without coming to check the it out in person. It turned out that she wanted the very first house that Esther and I looked through.
Esther was a pleasure to work with. She was thorough and followed up on everything we talked about. If I ever need to purchase another home, I'll call Esther for sure.
Just over one year, and I've had the pleasure of working with Chris Fenton
Chris knew I was on the fence about selling, but offered to do a free presentation on the current market value assessment and walk me through what his process of selling my home would look like.
Every time a situation arose that was difficult, he laid out both the pros and cons of each option, and then told me his advice. Not once did he push me to any one choice, a true testimonial to his honesty.
If I ever decide to buy or sell within the Alberni Valley or Sunshine coast, I'll definitely be working with him!
Service is outstanding, respones too fast they never sleep it seems. We were so impressed with the slide show that shows a view of all the rooms downward as if you had no roof, really neat.
Lots of showings, multiple offers was nice to get what we were happy with $900 less than asking price and some offers were even 5k more
Very proffesional service from Tracey booking viewings, Chris and Esther doing open house.
We tryed at first to sell on our own, but didnt work, we were uncomfortable showing it ourselves and potential buyers seem to like viewing better with a realtor without owners being present.
We highly recommend this realty company.
My wife and I both recommend The Fenton Group!
