"Chris has helped us purchase two houses in Castlegar. In the past we have dealt with quite a few realtors, all great at their jobs, but Chris has set the standard for us. He has always been thorough, professional, and above all available for anything we needed. We have always felt that Chris is looking out for our best interest and we truly appreciate his knowledge of not only this market, but also of his renovation/building experience. We wouldn't turn to anyone but Chris. We highly recommend him."
- Sarah and Kraig
“My husband and I will be forever grateful that we drove by the Century 21 Office that day and came across a property listed by Chris. He is truly the best!!. From the moment we made contact with him to see the home through to helping us out with post purchase issues, he has been there for us. He made us feel like we were his priority at all times and sorted out the problems we had very quickly. He never left us “hanging” or waiting around for a call back. He completely exceeded our expectations of an agent and we always felt comfortable and very well taken care of. Thank you Chris for helping us purchase our home up in the mountains and we can’t wait to work with you again when the time comes.”
- Christine and Chris
“You want someone to work for you, sell your house, find your dream house, Chris is your man. He’s a door knocker, he’s a house hunter. He’s honest and reliable and a wonderful man. He gets it done. He goes over and above to get you what you want. I’ve seen the other guys with the smile on their face, tell you what you want to hear, totally fake. Chris is genuine. He cares. You are not a number to him. He’s a Christmas card and wish you a happy birthday years down the road kind of guy. He’s the meet you for coffee and catch up kind of guy. Without question, Chris is our realtor, and most importantly, Chris is our friend.”
- Dave and Alison
"Chris Albert very quickly gained our confidence not only because of all the time and effort he put in to satisfy our demands, but especially in how he has gone above and beyond our expectations. Chris always put our interests first and was very patient with us throughout the whole buying and selling process. I was very impressed with his perseverance, competence and professionalism. I can very confidently recommend Chris as a realtor; whether you are looking for your dream home, cottage getaway or an investment property. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. Thank you Chris for helping our family, by making each transaction stress free and smooth a s possible!"
- Nelson and Theresa
"We were introduced to Chris at the end of 2017 as we were going to be relocating from the West Coast to Castlegar. Chris was a constant font of local knowledge which made our move and transition to the Kootenay’s so much smoother. Chris was and continues to be available at pretty much any time for help and advice. We were able to buy our dream home due to Chris’s commitment and diligence, even though it wasn’t on the market! We continued to buy investment properties through Chris and have been well steered by him. Throughout the process, Chris has demonstrated a discerning attitude towards our needs as a family and as investors. We highly recommend Chris."
- Sorrel and Gerry
“Chris had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. He made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in Nelson and the surrounding area. He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. Chris has great insight and when our search became stalled, he came up with several "think outside of the box" solutions. A master with the contract negotiations, Chris came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. Throughout this home buying process, he also managed to sell our house for full asking price, despite our failed attempt of trying for over a year to sell through Property Guys. We found Chris to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only clients, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day, usually immediately. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Chris was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our house to attract buyers quickly, and his advice worked like a charm. We are pleased to recommend Chris Albert to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
- Kristine and Spencer
“As a mortgage professional, I have worked with Chris for many years. I’ve always been so impressed with Chris and how he walks all his clients through the buying and selling process. His number one priority is keep his clients happy and to help make the process stress free. His service levels are exceptional and unprecedented. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs help from an experienced real estate professional.”
"Chris is always helpful and efficient in his job. Always willing to go the extra mile to make sure that I got the home I wanted."
“Chris Albert has always offered us exceptional service and trusted advice. He truly cared about finding us a quality property that exceeded our expectations. Chris has assisted our family with three home purchases and one very successful home sale. He was easy to work with, flexible, quick to respond and honest. We have and will continue to refer Chris to all our family and friends – or anyone we hear is looking. Chris Albert will be our first and only call when we are ready to buy or sell again!”
- Kris and Ken
“We became friends due to his honesty, integrity, and fulfilling my real estate needs at the right moment in time. Glad I met him and always a pleasure doing business.”
- Carter and Darlene
“Chris helped us buy our forever home in 2016. Chris put in a lot of effort by sending us listings regularly and even going to look at properties for us as we were living in Manitoba at the time. We appreciated the excellent communication and support in finding the home in the location that best suited our family.”
- Denise and Tyler
"I have had the opportunity to get to know and work with Chris over the past 10 years. Both from afar and near when looking at properties in the Castlegar area. Most recent was when making a long distance move and having my son and Chris viewing properties for me. All with consideration to what would be suitable to my needs not just making a sale. Chris has been skillful in recognizing what a customer is looking for and maintains a high degree of selling ethics."
“Chris has helped us both purchase and sell homes and we will definitely use him again in our future real estate endeavors. He is punctual, hard-working, knowledgeable, and effectively collaborates with a variety of professionals.”
- Charly and Shawn
“As a first time home buyer, I highly recommend using Chris. Chris is not somebody that will sweet talk you into buying a house. He tells you exactly what you need to know to make an informative decision. We didn’t know Castlegar very well since we were living in Nelson; we were uncertain of the area and price until we met Chris. Chris was able to tell us about the renovation that some of the houses had done in the past. He found things/issues that buyers should be aware of. He proactively informed us of new listings on the market. This is how proactive Chris is. Chris called me at work in the morning and really wanted us to check out a new listing that just came on the market that very day. By noon, he arranged for us to view the listing after work. It was literally what we were looking for. Sure enough, the seller accepted our offer on the same day. We are glad that we used Chris to purchase our first home. If you are looking for a realtor that listens and works hard for you, give Chris a try. You won’t be disappointed.”
- ManYing and Nick

- Scarlet and Todd
“We have had the pleasure of purchasing a home and multiple properties with the help of Chris as our Realtor (or Real Estate Agent? Excuse my ignorance). He is truly one of a kind and is always considering his clients’ best interest. His bar is set high in terms of the level of personalized professional service he offers and he operates with obvious integrity. He’s very knowledgeable, resourceful and never leaves you feeling uninformed or not represented with pride. Over the years, we have referred him to many loved ones, esteemed colleagues and friends who have all expressed equal happiness with his services. We will highly recommend Chris Albert, again and again, with confidence that he is the best realtor in the Kootenays!”
- Erica and Nolan
