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!

About two months ago, I asked Chris Fenton, if someone on their team could help me find a home for my sister, who lives on the lower mainland. I know Chris because he is a former member of the board of directors at Sage Haven Society - my workplace. Chris kindly connected me to Esther Fenton.

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.
Susan Roth
Esther was a tremendous help. Being a first-time home buyer it was stressful not knowing all the steps to go through and which houses would suit me. Esther made this as painless as possible but was there for any questions I had a long way. Infact I don't even know what her voicemail sounds like, she always answers!

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!

Once the process to sell my house was started, they took the wheel and we just sat back and relaxed. Chris and his group were always pleasant and professional. They were able to answer any questions I had very quickly. I would definitely use them again.

Our home sold in 6 days with a back up offer as insurance. Very pleased with the results. Besides an extremely competent agent and assistant there were lovely staff at the office, a terrific photographer and 3D technician too. Highly recommend them all.

It had been a while since we'd sold any real estate so we were so happy to have Chris and his group help us through the process. It was fast and painless and even fun! We definitely recommend The Fenton Group!
Susi Paulsen
I would highly recommend The Fenton Group. I had the pleasure of working with Chris and Esther recently. The professional service they offered was very appreciated. As a first time home seller, I really appreciated their patience, advice and quick communication responses. The marketing and networking systems they have in place are outstanding. Thank you for selling my home. I look forward to working with you again in the future. I also need to thank their amazing staff...Thanks Tracey!!!
Michelle Price
Highly recommended for both listing and buying! Chris sold my mom's house within two weeks near asking price while Vittoria found us the house (and yard) of our dreams. She is really on the ball and responds very quickly to any questions and concerns. She knows how to discern her clients' needs and wants and conducts her searches accordingly; she truly has her customers' interests at heart. Plus she has a great sense of humour! Thanks, Fenton Group!
Gordon Brown

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.
Max Seelenmayer
I just finished working with The Fenton Group for selling my first home and buying a new home for my family. Wow! They were all very quick to respond and took care of all my needs. Chris was very professional while working with me as I tried to figure out all the details considering I had never sold a home before. I was impressed by all of the knowledge and networking he had to make the sale of my home happen as fast as possible. Vittoria was a pleasure to work with while looking for my new home to buy. She took into consideration everything that would and wouldn’t work for my family which helped save a lot of time. When I had wanted a viewing or to put in an offer she was very fast at getting everything arranged. I never had to ask her to do anything twice or check up on her which is so important in time sensitive situations like those. I would recommend the Fenton Team to anyone who would like to buy or sell a home a million times over.
Danielle Dube
Good experience working with The Fenton Group. Not to mention they sold my house. Good on ya.
Don Myra
The personalized and professional services we received working with the Fenton team was second to none. We worked with Chris and Esther in two very different markets, and they ensured we were informed about every aspect of how changing markets impact not only the sale of a house, but the purchase of a new one. We have an incredibly busy family with high needs children, and the entire Fenton Team were supportive, patient and kind, and they helped us transition to a new home with as little impact to our children as possible. I would recommend the Fenton Team to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Alberni Valley, and look forward to working with them again should we need to venture into the real estate world again.
Jessica Burns
Great to work with. Friendly, helpful, and they know what they are doing.
Glenn McCallum
Chris & Esther sold our multi family much faster and for more money than we thought we could get. Thank you!

My wife and I both recommend The Fenton Group!
Jim Dumont
We would like to "Thank" THE FENTON GROUP for their diligent and professional handling in the sale of our home. Top marks for communication and advice. We appreciated all their effort and highly recommend them.
Elma Baxter
The Fenton Group was wonderful to work with. They made it easy for us at a very stressful time when looking for our first home. They showed us everything we wanted to look at and never tried to push the sale on us. They answered any questions we had no matter what time of the day it was. They were patient and considerate with us when we were unsure of what we wanted.
Lanie Veenkamp
The Fenton Group was extremely helpful for me as a first time home owner. They were organized, helpful and available to answer my questions any time, day or night. They made the process of buying my first home smooth and as stress free as possible.
