Chris you did a fantastic job! We would absolutely refer you and seek your assistance again when needed. You were very informative and always went above and beyond for us. Always willing and ready to answer any questions we had. Thank you for all your efforts and helping secure our new home. The most memorable moment was when we had gone into a very run down home unknowingly and we all had a good laugh running out. Take care Chris hope to work with you again!

I want to thank you on behalf of the company for selling another of our properties. The marketing of development land and the complexity of finalizing an agreement of purchase and sale is not easy.
Congratulations on achieving a successful sale within our expected time frame
We look forward to working with you again.

Our family recently bought and sold with the help of Christopher Lyons at XLR8 Realty.

Chris was patient and knowledgeable and directed us through the challenging real estate market we were working with. Chris was always available and ready with a steady, rational approach to smooth out the ups and downs of the buying process. When the time came to place a purchase offer and the subsequent listing of our home, XLR8 Realty's modern and convenient online signing tools greatly reduced the time and stress of preparing, presenting and receiving offers.

Chris's network of professionals guided us through the qualifying and inspection process, leaving us with the confidence to make informed decisions. The professionalism Chris brought created a presentation of our home that generated multiple offers hours after being listed on the MLS. We would recommend Chris and XLR8 Realty for your net real estate transaction. The process can seem overwhelming, but with the direction and guidance we received from Chris we were comfortable navigating through it.

We are now happily settled into our new home and looking forward to all the great memories ahead.

When we arrived in Canada, for a long time we could not find an apartment. Christopher helped us a lot, he listened to our requirements and quickly found several options, and soon we were moved into a great apartment in a beautiful area. He helped with the paperwork and consultation. We were very pleased with the quality of his work.  Thanks!

We appreciate your hard work. Very happy. 
We look forward to working with you in the future.

Wow! Just sold our investment condo using XLR8 Realty Group services and I am super impressed. Chris was very professional throughout the process and established our trust by communicating openly and often. The paperwork was explained clearly and handled efficiently from the start. His expert advice, marketing tools, and industry connections helped us sell at a higher price than expected. We have already recommended the XLR8 Realty Group to friends and family. Personable, authentic, and hard-working - 5/5 stars for XLR8 Realty Group.

Chris from XLR8 Realty Group helped me find suitable commercial space for my small business. He helped with the paperwork and negotiation. When I am ready to make my next move, the first move is to call XLR8 Realty.

My wife and I previously had sold our home ourselves but we were intrigued by the business model XLR8 Realty offered and the upfront and honest nature of Chris Lyons. XLR8 Realty was different than other brokerages and used innovative marketing, offered a customized approach that best suit our wants and needs as a seller. XLR8 Realty provided a pre-list home inspection so we were confident going to market, a CMA with a detailed understanding of the market, our house value, and how we compared to the competition in the market, professional photography, cinematography, attractive road signage and lots of online advertising and content-based marketing. Chris helped us prepare some renovations, helped us move and store possessions, and helped to stage our home, worked open houses, brought in buyers to show the home. It took a little longer to sell then we all expected but Chris put in extra time and worked very hard for us. He helped negotiate the price we were happy with and handled all the paperwork for the transaction, our lawyer, and our mortgage. We would recommend him for your next real estate transaction. 5/5 star.

I found XLR8 Realty on the internet and wasn't sure what criteria one used to judge a good real estate agent. I met Christopher Lyons and he was professional, attentive and took the time to understand my situation and helped find me a solution. I needed to find a home and needed to be sure it was suitable for my needs as a budding investor. He explained how his website could help me find matching properties, he answered my questions about mortgages, cap rate, long term concerns with maintenance and future potential for equity growth and future resale ability of the property. He visited each home with me and provided logical advice and feedback. He provided sales data to validate our offer and used convenient digital documents to work around my busy schedule. I rate XLR8 Realty 5/5 stars. You won't find a more loyal and hardworking real estate agent in Ontario.

"As a young couple and soon to be married, Chris helped us narrow down and find the perfect home for the next step in our life. We appreciated his deep knowledge of the Ottawa real estate market and home construction to point out any issues with houses we were considering buying. He was readily available to answer our questions (even late at night), helping us put worries aside and assure us that we were confidently making the right decision. In Ottawa’s fast-paced real estate market where your dream home could easily slip away, Chris helped us navigate the buying process and come up with the best strategies to make sure that didn’t happen to us. We’ve been in our home for a year now and similar townhouses on our street have sold for almost 50K over what we paid. Not only did Chris help us find our dream home in a great neighborhood, but he also helped us build amazing net worth. Don’t expect a transactional relationship with Chris – months after we purchased our home, he continued to check in with us to see how we are settling in, and if we needed help with anything. We strongly recommend having Chris by your side for your next home buying experience.

There came a day when it became necessary to sell my mother's house and move her to a smaller place. Since my mother lived almost six hours away, I was at a disadvantage. I couldn't be there all the time. I needed a realtor that I trusted and one who knew the area. Luckily I found Christopher Lyons. He met me just to explain how he approached selling homes. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and integrity. I felt as if I could trust him. Chris worked with us to arrange for the necessary repairs. He was kind and gentle with my mother and kept in constant communication with me via phone and email. The house sold surprisingly quickly and I was able to deal with most of the paperwork electronically. He even helped me as I moved my mother into her retirement residence.

Chris Lyons is a true renaissance man. He is multitalented. And if he doesn't know how to do something, he knows someone in the community who does. He is friendly, has a quirky sense of humor, and operates with expertise and integrity. He is a rare find. If you need a realtor, he's the person to call. He's your person.

Chris was our real estate agent for a year while we searched for a cottage lot. Chris is patient, considerate, and understanding. He is knowledgeable and willing to give advice when needed. We would be glad to have him as our agent again in any other real estate transaction. We rate him 4.5 out of 5.
