Ford & Chris came highly recommended to me from a close friend – and boy, they didn’t disappoint. I had a discouraging experience with another real estate agent who really didn’t seem like they wanted to sell my house. Ford & Chris were the exact opposite. They put together a great listing with professional photography and detailed lists of improvements. They juggled our tenants schedules and requests and were able to show the property to many prospective buyers. Their communication with me, my tenants and the buyers was top notch. Daily updates, complicated negotiation of multiple peoples’ schedules – they handled it all with ease! Ultimately, our primary goal was achieved which was to sell the house for a good price. They did this brilliantly, and then even got us a little bit more!
When it comes to buying or selling real estate, Ford and Chris make it happen, they excel at their profession. The pride they take in what they do shows through in every aspect of the transaction. In can be a difficult decision to make, whether buying a new home or selling an existing, having Chris and Ford working with you will go a long way to alleviating that pressure. A huge plus is the incredible attention they have for every detail, keeping you updated daily, returning calls and emails promptly, staging and fine tuning your home. We once again sold and of course prior to deciding consulted with them. Our home sold quickly and over what we were expecting.
Ford and Chris are the most thoughtful and kind real estate agents I have ever known. They are there to answer any question (no matter how ridiculous) and take the time to perfect every single detail. They walked me through and supported me through the process of deciding to sell my home and made it both seamless and painless. They worked their magic and my front lawn went from no sign to sold sign, the house sold over asking before it even went to market. I am so thankful for Ford, Chris and their entire team and look forward to working with them again in the future.
Both Chris and Ford are friends of ours, so it was a no-brainer who we wanted to work with when my husband and I started looking for our first home. We knew that they would be a blast to work with, but we were blown away by their professionalism, expertise and skill. As first time buyers, with a modest down payment, who were hoping to skip the condo real estate ‘step’ and jump right into a house in Toronto, Chris and Ford had their work cut out for them! They must have known that our request was not going to be easy to satisfy, but if they did, they never let on. They were professional, supportive, patient, and a pleasure to work with from beginning to end, making us feel at ease with what otherwise, can be a challenging and disheartening process. My husband and I are thrilled to be moving into our first house at the end of the month thanks to the Thurston Olsen Team. We highly recommend Chris and Ford and can’t thank them enough! READ MORE
I first got in touch with Ford and Chris when selling my home was a vague idea that I was only 50% committed to. When they came for the valuation meeting I casually mentioned that I would make my decision in the new year (a few months down the road). As soon as January rolled around, they checked in to see how my decision was coming along and if there was anything further they could do to help. This perfectly-timed and non-pushy follow up set the tone for our entire business relationship as they were flawless from start to finish. Their communication is consistent and direct, their opinions are well-informed and thoughtfully delivered and their attention to detail is second to none. Adding in their killer design team and the support of Andrea in the office, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. It also didn’t hurt that we managed to sell my condo well over asking! I’ve already sung their praises to anyone who will listen and will happily continue to do so. READ MORE
I have known Chris for a few years as a friend and a former colleague, so I was comfortable in engaging him and Ford in purchasing my new Condo. I knew I was going to be in good hands, but the guys exceeded my every expectation. As a new home buyer, it can be a daunting experience and sometimes frustrating however the team made me feel at ease from the beginning. They were patient, professional & very pleasant to deal with and accessible at all times for any questions. I’m happy to say that I will be moving into my first Condo this Spring thanks to the Thurston Olsen Team. I recommend them for anyone who is looking to buy or sell homes/condos. READ MORE
I can’t say enough about Ford and Chris and their team – they are just fabulous! We found them professional, trustworthy, reliable, efficient, and courteous. Ford and Chris made us feel completely at ease at every stage of the process. Ford and Chris and their team took very good care of us, covering all the details, scheduling, listing all the necessary preparations – they made it very easy for us. We were surprised to sign an offer within only two days after listing! We’re still feeling the high from such a swift sale, a record sale for the building. We’re very happy and would recommend Ford and Chris as the best realtors around! READ MORE

As first time home buyers, you rely heavily on your realtor to guide you through the process. We’re fortunate to have found Ford and Chris to support us every step of the way. We had a very short timeframe within which we wanted to purchase. Ford and Chris got us exactly what we wanted on budget and within our time frame. They were responsive regardless of the time of day and went out of their way to explain the intricacies of the home buying process. We’d absolutely recommend Ford and Chris to our friends and family.

Purchasing your first home in the Toronto Market is not an simple task, and one we would not have ever accomplished without the expert help and Chris and Ford. They are exceedingly knowledgeable, hard-working, friendly, and most of all trustworthy – a trait we found to be lacking in most of their peers. They were always available to us in spite of our crazy schedules and have a terrific sense of humour that is invaluable, and especially welcome to help ease the tensions of the search. Without Chris and Ford’s tireless efforts we would not have been able to find our home, and get it for the best price. We couldn’t imagine the process without having Chis and Ford to guide us through, and we won’t hesitate for a moment to work with them in the future. We couldn’t possibly recommend them any more highly to help with the purchase of a property…really, truly. READ MORE
