Chris and his team provide excellent service. We have bought twice and sold once with Chris. Great experience each time - good advice, patient, understood our needs, and represented us in our best interest. Highly recommended.

- Ganesh Datt

Chris is an exceptional Real Estate professional, from understanding the Ottawa market, to understanding specific needs of each of his clients. He has always looked out for our best interests while searching for properties, rather than what may be more profitable for him personally. He is ethical, professional, and honest in his assessments, and I would certainly recommend Chris and his team for your Ottawa real estate requirements.

- Faizal Hasham

We recently sold our home and purchased another with Chris Coveny and the Ottawa Move Team. They successfully sold our house in one day for 100% of asking price at market value. They also negotiated the appropriate discount for the house we purchased based on overall condition of the property. We trusted the Ottawa Move Team with property valuations and in our case the various inspection services required. Things couldn’t have gone any better. Our extended family have trusted Chris Coveny’s team now eleven times and highly recommend them.

- Gary Hamilton
Chris and his team were fantastic in selling our house on short notice after I got a job in a different province. Communication was clear and they are definitely solutions people. Chris at one point shovelled our driveway before an open house! Thanks Chris!
- Kristian Macdonald

We have been working with Chris and his team for over 7 years now and he has adapted seamlessly to our ever changing needs. Most recently Chris helped us find our first investment property and his InvestorBot! application came in very handy when sifting through all of the available properties. Chris has been very patient, informative and available to us. We are always happy to give our friends and colleagues his business card when they need a great home buying experience.

- Graham Thatcher

Through Chris Coveny and his team my house in the glebe was sold. I also purchased a condo with their support, dedication and assistance.

I would definitely recommend Chris and his excellent team. No matter what issues came up, they went above and beyond to make sure I was getting the best possible service, at all times.

- JoAnn Williamson

Chris and his always treat you like you're their only client. They're extremely competent, dedicated, and professional. I've moved 3 times now, and there is no one better.

My experience buying and selling a house with Chris Coveny was exceptional. Chris knows the Ottawa market and goes way above and beyond to make the home buying experience as easy as possible. He helped me find the perfect house and handled the negotiations to get me an amazing deal. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy and sell in Ottawa.

- Anne-Sophie Lawless
Chris has helped my entire family buy several homes over the years. He always found the right one, at the right price. He has an instinct for understanding what you are looking for, and has always gone the extra mile to ensure we got our asking price. On the buy side, he's always been on the money negotiating a price.
- Seth Hamilton
I've dealt with Chris and his team several times now over many years and always had excellent service whether buying or selling. Straightforward, honest, and fast would be how I sum up my experiences.
- Tim Colby

For the second time, Chris and his team have sold our house for 100% of its asking price and even reached over asking price on our behalf!
As those of you who are buying and selling know, its a very stressful and emotional time and Chris will be your best support! He is attentive, professional and above all, always has your best interest at heart. Our only complaint is that we won't be able to utilize his services in the future as we have now re-located out of the province but we would highly recommend him and his team without hesitation!
Thanks for everything Chris and we wish you all the best.
Nancy and Jeff Gibson

- Nancy Gibson
Chris helped us locate a first house for our daughter. He demonstrated an exception knowledge of the real estate market and the market value for the property we were interested in. With his advice and guidance we were able to get the property we wanted, even though we had to pay more than asking as there was many people interested in the property. We could not have done this without the professionalism, confidence and advice Chris offered in what can be a very stressful situation. We are so happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Chris and his team.
- Desmond Ryan

Chris Coveny is the first Real Estate Agent that I touched base with when I was about moving to Ottawa. He is a nice and easy-going person, not pressure at all when cruising around the area that we intend to buy. Patience from Chris is what I highly appreciated, and it's not all about buy/sell business when working with Chris. He listens and resolves your issues, guess this is why how success he is. I definitely recommend Chris to any of my acquaintances in the future.

- Jerry Chang

Chris is hands down the best real estate agent in Ottawa. He has helped my wife and I buy and sell both personal residences and investment properties for more than a decade. As we live and work overseas he has owned our sales like they were his own, achieving exception results and managing all aspects from improvements to final close. His knowledge of the real estate market, networks, communication skills and collaborative approach are second to none. We can’t thank Chris and his team enough for all their help over the years!

- Ray Messom
Chris, Danika and the Team worked with my husband and I over many months when we were house hunting in Ottawa. We were going to be leaving Toronto and a home that I had lived in for over 60 years. Consequently we had many, many criteria to be met. Chris unfailingly sought out listed properties which had many of the features meeting our criteria. Finally, in September, after 6 months or so, the perfect house came on the market. Chris guided us through the inspection process and we closed the purchase in November. We would highly recommend Chris and the Team to anyone house hunting in Ottawa.
- Susan Webber-Misener

Our sales rep, Erica was great in helping my family and I find our dream home. She was always prompt to respond to any questions or requests and is very knowledgeable. She also helped us sell our home very quickly over asking price!

- Matt Levac
Chris was responsive immediately to all inquiries, very refreshing considering inquiries to many other realtors went days and even weeks without a response. Highly recommended!
- Chris Johnston

Courteous and professional team, extremely helpful throughout the process of purchasing our first home.
Listened to our needs and work with us to find our ideal first home in the difficult Ottawa market. Never felt pressured to look at properties that didn't suit or where easier to find.
Would recommend this team to any one looking to buy or sell a home in the Ottawa area.
Fantastic group of people.

My husband and I have worked with Alen twice now and his knowledge of our neighbourhood (Alta Vista/Elmvale) and of investment properties was super valuable. The first time was our first home and he was able to help us buy the perfect investment property for our budget and our needs. Alen will also tell you the truth, he's on time and he listens to what you're looking for!

"Brett's familiarity with the industry was evident from the start, and he made sure to gauge and determine what we were looking for in a new home. He was easily reached during on- and off-hours, which is definitely of benefit for prospective buyers who are anxiously going through the home-buying process. His promptness in coordinating viewings of potential houses under short notice was appreciated." - Muriel Kim

I wanted to thank-you for your professionalism and hard work in the sale of our house on Alta-vista Dr. I feel that you helped us sell our house for the best price
in a timely manner. This is a great compliment to your advertising , exposure through your website and your team. From the time of our first meeting, you were honest, confident, direct, never out of reach. You listened to our thoughts regarding price adjustments.It quickly became obvious that you know the market. You communicate frequently and effectively. I appreciated your high energy level and great work ethic , your flexibility, creativity and persistence in making the sale.It is no exaggeration that closing an estate and selling a home is a stressful endeavour. You provided that support and confidence we needed to know that the house would sell. For all of these reasons I will recommend you and your team to my friends and acquaintances and it is without hesitation that I would seek you out with any future real estate needs.

"Thank you for everything.   I am amazed how professional you all have been, my sincere apologies as I truly was determined to leave my old house.  I was there quite a long time maybe too long..but raised a great son. I worked with Royal LePage years ago…you are truly very honest and caring individuals.  Wish we could see more of this in life. There were five words on your wall in your boardroom: integrity, caring for others and honesty and two more...nice to see that in your staff.    They say once you own a home your part of a family, well that is the feeling I now feel that home is where my heart lies.  Thank you for making my heart shine again in a new home." - Julie C

Loved working with Chris for my condo sale and new home purchase. Chris is a true professional and one of the most knowledgeable and connected real estate brokers in Ottawa.  I always felt Chris was working in my best interests.  On both of my transactions he went to bat for me to negotiate the best terms. He was extremely responsive via text, phone and email and went above and beyond to make sure everything went as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. Chris was a true professional, sincere, straight forward and not pushy in any way.  Thank you Chris for helping me to find my dream home!

"Hi, my name is Ryan and I am currently serving with the Canadian Forces as a Signals Officer.  I contacted the Ottawa Move Team to represent my interests while moving from Alberta to the NCR.  Chris and his team constantly kept me up-to-date WRT available properties given my preferences.  The entire time I dealt with the team I felt as though I was their no. 1 client.  They were available 24/7 to respond to all of my questions and assist me through the process of purchasing my first home.  If I knew of anyone wanting to move to the NCR or within it, I would strongly recommend The Ottawa Move Team!"

“Chris found us what is for us, the best house in Ottawa.”

- Sam H.

“Chris took very good care of us when we arrived from posting two years ago. He understood what we were looking for, the price we were willing to pay, and most of all, the fact that we were living at the hotel and wanted to find something quick! Accordingly, he went out of his way to book us as many visits as he could, in the area we were looking for, and quickly helped us step by step with everything we had to do (expert visit, finding a lawyer, etc). He showed great flexibility to accommodate us, always returning our numerous calls quickly, and went out of his way to make our life easier.

Chris’ patience with us, his friendly and caring attitude, and his impeccable professionalism made him our obvious choice when came the time to sell our house for going on posting again this summer. He gave us a few tips on house to prepare the house, took some nice pictures of it, prepared his ads, and…sold our house in ONE day! He was recommended to use by friends, we have recommended him to friends in the past, and would have no hesitation to warmly recommend him again!"

"Chris Coveny and his team at Ottawamove.com were a fantastic help selling my house in 2008.  Since it was at the upper end of the price bracket and I was trying to sell as Winter turned to Spring, Chris took multiple photo sessions to ensure that my marketing indicated the improving curb appeal as the yard came to life!  We used a stager and multiple media to market the house and ended up selling right where I needed the price and within the time expected.  I would strongly recommend Chris to any incoming or outgoing family, especially if they were a federal employee like me - I always felt like I was Chris's only customer and number one priority!"
