We had an excellent experience working with Chris and Ford to purchase our house. We were moving back to Toronto after many years away, and their expert knowledge of the housing market in the city inspired great confidence and made for a very smooth and enjoyable experience. They were responsive to our many questions, pointed out important considerations as we looked at a breadth of properties, and shared invaluable resources to guide us through the process. And when we found our perfect house, they helped us come up with a swift, strategic plan for its successful purchase in a competitive market. We couldn’t have done it without their support and highly recommend working with them. Thanks, Chris and Ford!

Chris and Ford were our agents recently for buying our first home. They were all the things you want from an agent and more: professional, knowledgeable, friendly and reliable. We ended up getting our ideal home for a great price, we were very happy with the entire process and result. We will be using them for our next purchase. Highly recommend!! Thanks guys!!

Warvet Crescent

Ford and Chris were amazing to work with. They helped us sell our house at a challenging time in the market and despite it, we came out very pleased with the price we sold for. They came highly recommended by a friend and neighbour, so we took a chance and they proved to be just as good as recommended. They knew the market extremely well and our neighbourhood and reviewed all of the recent sales with us in detail. They responded quickly to every question and request we had, and came in person for any meetings / questions we had needing a visit and were readily accessible by email and phone whenever needed. They had excellent recommendations for stager, painting and electrician. Their attention to detail was incredible. We would highly recommend them!

Empire Avenue

Chris and Ford were an absolute pleasure to work with. We were very nervous and had a ton of questions looking to buy our first home and they were easily and happily so open with us. Both in answering our questions and just sharing what was going on in the process. Starting out, we really enjoyed the daily updates of what’s new in our desired areas and budget, making the independent searching much more manageable. In the viewings, Chris taught us where and what to look for so we could feel more confident in our decisions. When we wanted to make our offer, the back and forth was insanely quick and they made it so easy! Chris helped navigate us to an offer being accepted UNDER asking! We have been in our house just 2 weeks now, and are so thrilled. They were so genuine every step of the way and it felt like we really had a friend on our team, finding us a true home to grow in. Big thanks guys. I’ve told everyone I know to call you.

Grace and Karl

Chris and Ford are a cut above the rest. They’ve helped us buy and sell three times now and have always delivered strong results. Their care, expertise and thoughtfulness goes a long way. We strongly recommend them to all of our friends and family.

Sam and Nicole
Craven Road

Chris and Ford are fantastic to work with. Their hard work, good advice, and patience took so much stress out of the selling and home buying experience. It was a very positive experience, from staging and selling our condo to getting us into all the homes we wanted to see so we could find the right one, they were with us every step of the way. They helped find us our condo years ago, and when it came time for us to look for a house, it was natural that we’d use them again. Great work guys!

Arden and Alex
Osler Street

Working with the Thurston Olsen team is always professional and seamless. They understand the market extremely well and offer unbiased advice at all times. I strongly recommend Ford and Chris for all your real estate needs!

Logan Avenue

Chris and Ford were so amazing to work with. They were professional, friendly and answered all of my many questions as a first-time home buyer. They are extremely knowledgeable, accessible and provided great advice which helped me narrow down on a great place. Couldn’t be happier and couldn’t recommend them more!

King Street West

I highly recommend using Thurston Olsen real estate group if you are selling or buying a home. I chose Chris and Ford as they specialize in the Leslieville area and my parents home required a buyer who was willing to renovate the home. They guided us through the process and were always available to answer our questions, provide advice and help us through the process.

Bushell Avenue

I spent a lot of time contemplating which realtors to work with in such an oversaturated market like the GTA. Though Chris & Ford did come recommended from a reliable source – I was not taking anything for granted and really wanted to find someone who genuinely had my best interests in mind but was also thorough and knowledgeable about the industry and the extremely volatile market. I interviewed with quite a few realtors before deciding on the Thurston Olsen Real Estate Group and I could not recommend a better team to take care of you. I had a fast moving and tricky situation to navigate all things considered and the two of them went above and beyond at every step to not just make sure I was happy, comfortable, and confident in my decision – but they took into account all of my borderline neurotic hesitancies and ensured the end result was one I would be beyond satisfied with. Aside from all of the surprises that one encounters when heading down the road of purchasing a home – as is to be expected – Chris and Ford really deployed all of their experience, network, and expertise to guarantee I found a space I truly loved and the bureaucratic gridlock that leads up to it all was made that much easier thanks to their well calibrated resourcefulness. Up until my closing date and beyond they have really outdone themselves as far as delivering an outstanding win for their client. I rarely write reviews – and regardless of the magnitude of this life event – I cannot say enough about this team. Wishing them all the success and for anyone reading this, they are hands down absolutely the group you want supporting such an important life decision.

Jane Street

Chris and Ford were fantastic from day 1! They are very patient, honest, organized and knowledgeable. Our visits were seamless as they communicate very well as a team. We truly valued their opinion and appreciated their patience with our questions! We would absolutely recommend this great duo to anyone looking to navigate the very interesting Toronto market. Thank you for helping us find the house that checks all the boxes and for the fun along the way!

Caitlin and Stephen
Wineva Avenue

We are so thankful to have had the Thurston Olsen team on our side when buying our home. Chris and Ford, with their wealth of knowledge and professionalism, guided us through each step and answered all of our (many) questions along the way. They were attentive, responsive and reassuring. We had such a positive experience we now recommend the Thurston Olsen group to anyone hoping to buy or sell in Toronto!

Jenn and Trevor
Scadding Avenue

Ford and Chris were great to work with! They walked me (as a first time home buyer) through the difficult process of becoming a homeowner in Toronto. They were patient and professional during our time when house hunting, and with helping me to sell my property. They’re super knowledgeable in the various communities all over the Toronto area.

Wiltshire Avenue

Working with Chris & Ford was the best thing we did for selling our house. The energy they brought to the process made our place stand out and helped turn a stressful situation into lots of fun. Their strategy and marketing directly translated to our bottom line. These guys are consummate professionals, giving us full confidence at every step. They take pride in their profession and are well connected within the industry. They provided sound advice, always making us feel that we were in control. Selling our home was our biggest financial transaction and Chris & Ford created the best possible outcome.

Erin and Chris
Brooklyn Avenue

Excellent experience with Ford and Chris. They were on the ball, always available and very professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Brook and Sam
Coady Avenue

We worked with the Thurston Olsen Group both for the purchase of our new house and the sale of our existing condo. We can say that both experiences were outstanding and honestly downright fun, despite the stress that comes with buying and selling. These guys know how the Toronto market works; and they know it well. They’re knowledgeable, responsive, reassuring, patient and attentive to your needs. They’re incredibly in sync and provide a seamless experience while working with either one (and what a treat when you get them both at the same time!) They make you feel assured throughout the entire process, taking care of every little detail from beginning to end. We highly recommend the Thurston Olsen Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in Toronto and we most definitely will use them again in the future.

Jenn and Steve
Queensdale Avenue

Ford & Chris were fantastic to work with. From helping us lease our property, including finding the perfect tenant, through to the eventual sale of the property a few years later, their professionalism and expertise were invaluable. We particularly appreciated their knowledge of our neighbourhood and market trends as well as their patience in responding to all of our questions as first time sellers. Once we decided to list the property, we were introduced to their amazing design team who worked with us to showcase our home’s potential under tight timelines. The professional photography, printed materials produced and features on their social media channels were best in class generating overwhelming interest. The showing process was respectful of schedules and all safety protocols. Finally, their advice & patience as we navigated through the offers process was exactly what we needed. We highly recommend Ford & Chris!!

Kerri and Ross
Springdale Boulevard

We were looking for a new realtor when selling our home in Aurora. Thurston Olsen had sold one in the neighbourhood a month before so we met with them for a consultation. Chris and Ford showed a lot more initiative than the other realtors we met with – they put the work in to make sure your house receives top dollar. We have bought and sold several houses and Thurston Olsen were definitely the most committed agents we have worked with. They managed every single part of the process and the experience was enjoyable. They are a fantastic team and we highly recommend them.

Christie and Phil
Marsh Harbour

We have used Ford and Chris on several occasions and they have always gone above and beyond any other realtors we have used. They are by far the most knowledgeable and attentive gentlemen who have always accommodated our family needs. From the moment you engage with them, you will know that you are in highly capable hands. Their marketing is second to none with their excellent photographer and other digital media professionals along with their stunning brochures. All of the above would not shine as brightly without mentioning the top notch staging teams they brought in on all our deals. From purchasing to selling, rest assured that you are in good hands with a great team dedicated to your satisfaction and happiness. These guys go the extra mile to ensure that you are getting the guidance needed for your purchase and leave nothing on the table when you sell. I highly recommend the Thurston Olsen team to all of my friends and family. Many thanks as always for taking care of our investments.

Taras and Celine
Cranberry Lane

Chris and Ford are an excellent team of realtors whom we highly recommend to anyone planning to sell their home. They are personable and effective. They gave us helpful advice and kept us informed every step of the way. They were highly competent negotiators with other realtors and prospective buyers. They paid for us to stage our home which made a huge difference in stimulating interest in it. They sold our home in four days, over asking price. We recommend them without reservation.

Wayne and Johanne
Quincy Crescent

Ford and Chris are quite simply the best in the game. There’s no other team you want in your corner when buying or selling a home. We have worked with them twice, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience so much that we trusted them to sell our parent’s home. They were off the charts great! Working with them will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. They go above and WAY beyond. We love them!

Marty and Sheri
Colborne Street

It was a pleasure working with Ford and Chris on the listing, their knowledge and expertise was instrumental in getting top dollar for my home. Thanks for all your hard work and I look forward to working together again in the near future.

Gerrard Street East

The Thurston Olsen crew made the sale of my Toronto condominium an easy transaction. They went over and above supporting the sale, completely remote and even while I resided outside of the City. Awesome work!

Sackville Street

Ford, Chris and the whole Thurston Olsen team were simply the best. From the first time we met them, they were professional, knowledgeable and just genuinely nice people. We knew we could trust them! They did an amazing job with the purchase of our new home in the Beaches and the sale of our condo – every aspect felt so easy and seamless. We would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you!

Scott and Jessica
Kingston Road

Working with Chris and Ford has been an amazing experience. In 2016, our daughter and her husband bought their first home through Chris and Ford. They were very happy with the service. Naturally, when we thought of relocating, we went with the team of Thurston Olsen Real Estate. As seniors, relocating is stressful especially during Covid, but they made the whole exercise go flawlessly. From putting an offer to our new home, to staging our existing home, these guys made it all so easy for us. Their skill in negotiation enabled us to buy our dream home at a price that we are very happy about. And they sold our existing home in six days for a selling price well over asking price. Since day one, they have been nothing but patient, efficient and hard working. They have exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Chris and Ford, for a job well done. Special thanks to Andrea, as well as to Kaylee who staged the house.

Irene and David
Kings Park Boulevard

I can’t say enough about how great the Thurston Olsen Team are. They are truly awesome! This is the second time we’ve worked with them on selling our home. Selling your home is a stressful time. Add a global pandemic to the mix and it’s not an easy task. Chris, Ford, and Andrea made sure we felt safe and comfortable with every step of the way. Their market knowledge is on point. They set our expectations for our particular market and then they exceeded them by selling our home in two days!!! They do not disappoint. From the beautiful staging and advertising, even the printed materials were beautiful. They have an eye for detail and it really makes a difference for your home to stand out in this very competitive market. We would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Rebbecca and Tristan
Highview Avenue

As first time home buyers my husband and I were nervous, particular, and slow. It took us almost two years to finally purchase our first home and Chris and Ford patiently and expertly guided us through the crazy Toronto real estate market. They provided us with every detail we asked for and were always there at the drop of hat to go to an open house or private showing. We finally found our perfect home and our offer was skillfully negotiated and handled with the utmost professionalism during a global pandemic. We are so happy with our new home and couldn’t be more thankful to Chris and Ford.

Stefany and Nikola
Brooklyn Avenue

We couldn’t have imagined working with anyone else to purchase our new home. Ford and Chris set up viewings seamlessly and were always on time and professional. While we were looking at the pretty finishes of a house they were looking for all the items we might miss like the updated electrical or a new furnace. They gave great advice on things they noticed and on things they approved of or disapproved of. They did their research and knew the area and the comparisons before we arrived so they were able to give great advice on what we should offer and if a home was what we wanted. They helped us through the negotiation stage like absolute pros. They never made us feel pressured and gave the utmost care in their advice and responses to make sure we felt comfortable with the final decision. We are so excited about our new home and that is all thanks to the wonderful experience we had with Ford and Chris.

Alicia and Enzo
Allan Street

Chris and Ford helped us through a huge milestone in our lives as we moved our family from Ottawa to Toronto. We are so grateful to them. Buying a home in Toronto during a global pandemic is beyond stressful, but Chris and Ford listened carefully to our needs and ultimately landed us our Beaches house by the lake. They gave us excellent real estate advice in terms of offers and strategy in an uncertain economic time. We will definitely recommend Chris and Ford going forward. Thank you!

Sophia, Linden and Eloise
Scarboro Beach Boulevard

Ford and Chris are hands down the best! 7 years ago they helped us purchase our first home and we knew without a doubt when we were ready to buy and sell this time they were the right guys for the job! They helped guide us in purchasing our new home in many ways. They knew the market, the neighbourhood and provided sound advice along the way. When it came time to sell they handled everything seamlessly. The marketing material was unlike anything we’ve seen before and surely helped with the great sale of our condo. Every step of the way we were confident and secure in our decisions and that’s all thanks to Ford and Chris!

Erin and Daniel
Hiltz Avenue

You were both great to work with and made every part of the selling and buying process as smooth and stress free as possible. We really appreciated your patience and honesty through everything and you did a great job of helping to calm our nerves when we were putting in our offers. We will absolutely recommend you guys to anyone we know who is looking for an agent.

Asha and John
Campbell Avenue

Honestly, Ford & Chris are the best agents I’ve ever worked with. I’ve had five agents over the last five years and the Thurston Olsen Team were easily the best. They knew the market, and that was very important. At the end of the day, this is a large transaction for anyone, so I was happy they could be relied upon with expert insight.

Edgecroft Drive

Two amazing guys – one great result! The guys: Ford and Chris. The result: we sold our home for over asking in 6 days! We met Ford and Chris at an open house six years ago. From the outset we thought “here are two real estate professionals we can work with” and most importantly trust. Over the intervening years we’re pretty sure we must have tested their patience as we waited for the right time to put our home on the market. That time finally came this year. The process started with a meeting in early January with Ford, Chris and their outstanding designer Alicia. They took us through their marketing plan and Alicia scoped out how to best stage and prepare the house for sale. From that initial meeting until the house was listed on MLS, Ford and Chris constantly worked to ensure that everything was the best it could be. The quality of the marketing materials (brochure, website, online/offline ads) really show-cased the features of our home. These efforts resulted in a high visitor turnout on both open house days. On offer night Ford and Chris again showed their skills in the negotiations with the buyer’s agent, which resulted in us getting a price that we were looking for. In addition to Ford, Chris and Alicia, we also want to give a shout-out to Andrea, who is the Executive Administrator and did a wonderful job of coordinating many details throughout the sale process.

Jim and Laura
Juniper Avenue

Ford and Chris are a fantastic combo, and very professional real estate agents. When Joyce and I reflect on the process we’ve both concluded that they executed flawlessly and delivered the right amount of reassurance and guidance in what can be a lengthy process. We were in a situation where we wanted to upgrade our space, which meant buying a new condo, and then quickly selling the old one. As luck would have it we found our new spot first, while negotiating the price down. This meant we now had to sell our old place. The Thurston Olsen Team and their designers stepped up to the challenge. They helped us sell our condo in a challenging situation, under time constraints, and when there happened to be construction starting directly across from our unit. Despite this, the team facilitated consistent showings and amazing staging and we ended up selling at a great price. During the closing process Ford and Chris were extremely supportive in tying up any minor details, helping to ensure that everything went smoothly for all parties in involved. Through Ford and Chris we were able to find the perfect condo in the best neighbourhood. We still wake up everyday feeling so happy and thankful that we found our new home.

Roncesvalles Avenue

My husband and I used the services of Chris and Ford when we bought our current house and more recently this summer when we sold our rental property. I was pregnant when we were looking for our house and was very particular about what I wanted, at the same time not very decisive and had a lot of emotions. Chris and Ford were so patient with us (me) and accommodated every request we had, no matter how last minute, never making us feel that we were asking too much. Which I’m sure we were?. Their energy is always positive and helpful. We found a home that we will be in for many, many years to come. When we sold our rental property, they were very honest and realistic about when to and how to sell and despite the timeline not being what I had hoped it to be, I trusted their judgement and it paid off. We ended up getting a fantastic offer that were extremely happy with. We would highly recommend “the guys” as we refer to them and have nothing but good things to say.

Colleen and Jason
Woodbine Avenue

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!

Jones Avenue

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. It 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.

Diana and Ken
Glen Manor Drive

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.

Warden Avenue

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!

Sarah and James
Old Weston Road

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.

Carlaw Avenue

From first meeting to final offer, the relationship with Chris, Ford, Andrea, and their stellar team was beyond reproach. Their professionalism and care in handling literally every aspect (regardless of how small) of the sale was first class. Let them take care of you and your family’s future, you will not be disappointed.

Sheri and Marty
Wellesley Street

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.

Park Lawn Road

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!

Steve and Lorna
Sumach Street

Let me tell you if you want honesty and integrity, straight shooters, no push, no shove, no aggressive or sneaky tactics, no BS, individuals who work to do the utmost on your behalf, Ford and Chris and their team are true professionals in all senses of the word who make selling your home or condo a seamless, painless process.

Sumach Street

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.

Adam and Becky
Craven Road

Purchasing your first home in the Toronto Market is not a 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.

Naya and Tristan
Dundas Street East

Working with Chris and Ford has been an amazing experience! As first time home buyers, it was so stressful and nerve-racking to enter into the realm of home ownership but having these guys by our side made it all worthwhile. Since day one they have been nothing but patient, instructive, well-informed and professional. These guys worked day and night to find us our perfect home and we can’t thank them enough! We will miss the emails, calls, property visits, but most of all the laughs. We say with great confidence that the Thurston Olsen Team are wonderful and can’t wait to refer them to family and friends!

Jenn and Rylan
Main Street

We engaged with Chris and Ford to sell our parent’s home in Don Mills. They helped us with what to do to get the home ready to sell and patiently answered all of our family questions. Ford and Chris were very professional and really understood what we wanted and provided the service we needed. They worked hard to sell the home and balanced getting the best price with an expeditious sale. Ford and Chris did a great job and we would recommend them to anyone considering their services.

Wren Court

When it came to selling our house there wasn’t a doubt in our mind that we would choose Chris and Ford as our agents. They helped us from the get go prepping our house for the market, answering all our questions, and providing us with all the relevant and current information that resulted in the REALLY fast and successful sale of our house. Chris and Ford are a pleasure to work with and are on the top of their game when it comes to agents working in the Toronto housing market. Thanks again, guys!

Holly and Rich
Murdock Avenue

We first contacted the Thurston Olsen team a few years ago on a friend’s recommendation after months of house hunting turned up no results. Immediately we were impressed by Chris and Ford’s knowledge of the Leslieville neighbourhood, drive to deliver client satisfaction, and upbeat attitude. Just weeks later, Chris and Ford had helped us successfully purchase a great home. Fast forward a few years and we were back on the hunt for a home, eventually landing on a multi-unit property. The nature of the property made every aspect more complex, yet Chris & Ford were attentive and patient, always looking out for our best interests, and went above and beyond to make the transaction as seamless as possible. Moreover, they did a fantastic job selling our home. They staged and prepared it for sale with as little disruption to our lives as possible. They counselled us on the best sales strategy, executed it to a T, and ultimately delivered results exceeding our expectations. We regularly let our friends and family know how much we like our agents (which apparently is rare in this city!) and gladly refer them to anyone.

Olivia and Matt
Larchmount Avenue

I can’t praise Ford and Chris (the Thurston Olsen team) highly enough. They are dedicated, knowledgeable, hardworking, and do it all with panache and style while keeping it down to earth. They went above and beyond for us and brought in amazing results! After working with them to put our house on the market, we found ourselves wishing we could embark on another project with them right away. These guys are simply the best out there.

Coxwell Avenue

I had a great experience working with Chris and Ford. I live in another province and was buying in Toronto. Chris and Ford were my eyes and did all of the home viewings and leg work. They made the process quite easy and I trusted them both to give me their honest opinion since I was unavailable to see properties myself. They did a great job and given my unusual situation went out of their way to make things happen. Needless to say I am very pleased to have worked with them.

Dianne Docherty
Gerrard Street East

When we sold our condo three years ago, we had a wonderful experience with the Thurston Olsen Team. So when it came time to sell our house, there was no doubt that we would list with Ford and Chris again. And they didn’t disappoint! We were given a clear schedule so we knew exactly what to do and what we could expect from them. They put in a lot of time and effort to make sure our house was flawless and we were thrilled with the results. Ford and Chris are professional, knowledgeable and most importantly, passionate about what they do which makes them a pleasure to work with. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, we highly recommend the Thurston Olsen Team – we wouldn’t choose anyone else!

Jake and Lisa
Harcourt Avenue

I’m extremely happy I made the decision to use Chris and Ford to sell my multi-unit income property. They put together a fabulous marketing and information package with everything laid out perfectly for buyers to easily see all the details they need. They really know how to capitalize on visual presentation and fine details that beautifully display your property to buyers. They are also very organized, hardworking, knowledgeable and confident. It was truly a great experience using The Thurston Olsen Team. I would strongly recommend them to my family and friends!

Chris Mewett
Coxwell Avenue

The Thurston Olsen Team made buying our first house so much fun! Ford and Chris were professional and knowledgeable through every step, but also kept the adventure of house viewings and offer day exciting. There wasn’t a minute we didn’t feel like their number one priority and they made themselves available for viewings as far East as we asked at a moments notice. We had lots of questions and needed friendly advise along the way for our first home purchase, we definitely made the right choice with the Thurston Olsen Team.

Cian and Rachel
Zator Avenue

My introduction to the Thurston Olsen Team came from a referral from my sister. I was exceptionally impressed with the high caliber professional service that they provided when she was selling her place, and I was seeking the same level of consistency within my sale. From the beginning, it was both a pleasure and delight to deal with Ford and Chris; they make you feel as though you are their only client; paying attention to every meticulous detail, being available, and most importantly exceeding expectations. I feel tremendously fortunate to have had such a wonderful interaction and experience with an extremely visceral sale. They made everything seamless. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend the Thurston Olsen Team. I could not have asked for more superlative Realtors to facilitate the process of selling my home, and in 41 hours no less.

Lisgar Street

The Thurston Olsen Team is unstoppable! When selling our first home and buying our next home, every expectation was surpassed, from staging our home with a keen eye for detail and emphasizing what a buyer wants, to handling the purchase of our new property. Ford and Chris worked extremely hard to get us the best possible purchase and sale price leaving us smiling from ear to ear. We would recommend these two to anybody with confidence. Again thanks Ford and Chris, you guys gave us the best experience possible!

Tristan and Rebbecca
Woodfield Road

Since owning my own service-based business from the age of 21, I can tell you that I have seen a rapid decline in not only customer service but honest work ethic. This being my third house that I have sold, I was frustrated with the monotone, lazy, realtors that would sell my home without a fight to get the best price. On a recommendation from a friend, I listed with Chris and Ford. Not only do they both represent the stylish and smart look this industry demands. Their honesty, professionalism and hard work put my mind at ease.

When deciding to sell my loft, I will admit I was really sad about it. I never expressed it, seeing that it was a good thing to do, but one always becomes attached to the memories. Chris and Ford were unaware of this little fact, but in some way they made me less sad. Maybe because I saw how hard they worked. They were tireless in their efforts and they truly are the nicest gentlemen you will ever meet. In some strange way, I think selling my loft was the best thing that ever happened, because I got to work with the best real estate agents, Ford Thurston and Chris Olsen.

Ford and Chris are wonderful to work with! Within a few days of the initial decision to list with them, they were here staging our home and making it look absolutely gorgeous. So gorgeous that it sold in under two days (over ask). Over the next few weeks we saw MANY houses around Toronto, trying to decide which neighbourhood/house was the right fit for our family of four. My youngest son (2 yrs) was with me for each and every showing and even he enjoyed the experience. So much so that on days that we weren’t looking at houses he would ask where Chris and Ford were.

Ford and Chris were patient, informative, knowledgeable and honest every step of the way. In the end they actually knew which house was the perfect fit for us before we even realized it. We couldn’t be happier with each and every aspect of our experience listing with the Thurston Olsen Team!

Searching for the perfect home can be a very challenging process but Ford and Chris made the experience painless. Being first time home buyers, there were many things that we were unaware of while searching for our first home. Their advise and guidance through the whole process was on point. Their honesty and dedication lead us to the perfect home. From start to finish, Ford and Chris were there to address any questions and concerns and offered the best possible advice. We couldn’t have asked for a better team. We would recommend this dynamic duo to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Our experience with Ford and Chris to find a condo with a difficult specific area and budget can only be described as excellent and outstanding. From the beginning we received through e-mail several options of condos with the characteristics specified. Chris and Ford were always available to visit the properties. We valued their professionalism and assertiveness in their support. They never magnified or minimized concerns or opportunities and we felt confidence in their advice. During the offer process they were always available to fill out forms and guide us through the formalities, explaining every detail and clause in the documents. The way they perform their work provides a feeling of confidence and trust in their experience. Chris and Ford recommended us to a lawyer that demonstrated to have the same style and clarity to provide counsel and support. I remember we waived the last condition of the offer a Friday almost at midnight and again they were always there ready and prepared. I would like to add that nowadays it’s difficult to find the efficiency and quality of service that Chris a Ford provided us during the whole process. If we decide in the future to sell property we bought with their help, we will not doubt a second to operate with them again.

We can’t say enough good things about the Thurston Olsen Real Estate Team! Their personability, knowledge and expertise made what seemed like a daunting process into a very enjoyable experience! As first time homebuyers we had a lot of questions, but Ford and Chris were always quick to respond to our many inquiries with accurate and precise information. We were extremely impressed with their professionalism, work ethic and dedication. They always made us feel valued and were attentive to our needs every step of the way. Their excellence in service went far beyond our expectations! Most importantly, they took the time to understand our unique wants and were able to find us a condo perfectly suited to our lifestyle and aesthetics. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend them to our colleagues, family and friends.

When contemplating another move we immediately engaged the Thurston Olsen Real Estate Team to assist us in preparing our home for the market and finding us a new home. With a marketing background specific to the real estate industry and having grown up in a real estate family, Ford is a natural in the business. Chris Olsen’s finance/banking background and experience in the renovation industry are great attributes for the team and we had first-hand experience having made several moves with the assistance of Dorothy DeClute and her husband Gerry prior to Gerry’s retirement. We knew we could count on professional assistance including staging, excellent marketing materials as well as expert advice on all aspects of the move including the costs and risks that are involved should we decide to buy prior to selling. After listing our condo we were kept informed at every turn with all updates and pertinent information that could affect the sale. Thank you Ford, Chris and Dorothy for your excellence. We will happily recommend you to all in our sphere of influence. Best always!

The Thurston Olsen Real Estate Team was amazing in the negotiation of the sale of my home. Ford’s flair for marketing was essential, and Chris’s hands on approach really assisted Dorothy’s vision in the staging of the house. They also helped me find a new location in which to rent. Dorothy’s many years of experience and networking were of great help to me from getting a mover, to hiring a cleaner. She put me in contact with several trades persons. All their hard work resulted in a very quick sale. Together, all three made what could have been a very stressful time, to feeling as though my every need and concern were of utmost importance to them. They went above and beyond every expectation, and I would recommend them to anyone requiring help with their own real estate needs. Being an elderly woman who had owned her own home for twenty eight years, I was treated with the utmost respect and care.

The Thurston Olsen Real Estate team was recommended to us through professional colleagues. Chris and Ford made our move from a small town to the city an easy transition.
As first time home buyers we were initially nervous, but were made comfortable with the knowledge and professionalism they displayed. Being a couple in the building design industry we were particular about our needs. However, in less than 2 weeks Chris and Ford were able to find us the perfect loft in Leslieville! They were extremely hard working, putting in extra time addressing our questions above and beyond typical real estate duties. It is without question that we would recommend the Thurston Olsen Real Estate team to our friends and family, and will be keeping them as contacts in our next real estate endeavour.

I was so impressed with the professional way that the Thurston Olsen Real Estate team handled the listing and the sale of my condo at 9 Boardwalk Drive. From the first meeting to the sale of the condo took under 7 days! Their advise was impeccable and my condo was staged using my own things–but just placed in a way that made it still my home but so pleasing to the eye of a potential buyer.

While buying a new home can sometimes be stressful, our experience was made easy with Ford and Chris at the helm! We were very impressed with their professionalism and the fact that they always had our best interest in mind. They are very personable and fun to work with, and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. Ford and Chris are a knowledgeable team with their fingers on the pulse of the real estate scene in Toronto. They understood exactly what we were looking for and were dedicated to helping us find it. I would recommend the Thurston Olsen Team to anyone looking to buy or sell in Toronto!

The best real estate team Leslieville has to offer! When starting our search for our first home we were recommended to the Thurston Olsen Team through a friend. We knew from our first showing with them that they were going to take very good care of us! They were always knowledgeable about the listing we were going to see as well as the neighbourhood and all the amenities the property had to offer. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and they were able to answer all of them! Ford and Chris make a great team and are very passionate about their work. They were always able to lend their professional opinion on neighbourhoods and property values. We never felt any pressure from them and they always took notes, listened to our likes and dislikes and made sure to always take those comments into account when showing us the next listing. We know that when the time comes to sell our home they will have the same passion and dedication they displayed when finding us our first home. We will, without a doubt, be turning to the Thurston Olsen Real Estate Team for our next journey in real estate!

Thanks to the best team yet! The Thurston Olsen Real Estate Team. The moment we discussed putting our house on the market we knew that Dorothy DeClute was our gal. Having had great success with Dorothy in the past, we felt confident making the call. Once again, we were quickly successful at reaching our goal of SOLD! This go round allowed my husband and I to work with Dorothy, Ford and Chris as a team for the first time. We were very impressed. All of the planning, marketing, advertising and showcasing of our home was handled with perfection and organized in a calm and timely fashion. Communication is key and the Thurston Olsen Team proved second to none. Thank you for your knowledge, experience and the fresh creative ideas that put our house in the forefront. I believe your clients are fortunate to have your representation and professionalism. You guys ROCK!!
