Thought I would take a second to give you some client/agent feedback.
I remember when you were first starting out, My family needed an agent to sell a little bungalow down in Toronto. I said I knew a guy who could help. Knowing fully that you were just starting out and not sure if you were even able to sell outside your real estate board.
You showed up to your first listing agreement with the Furlano Family, I remember the look on my families face (mostly my mom and grandmother)
I felt as though they were a tad unsure of whether or not you were capable of the job.
I knew long before you got there that you were a friend first. Helping sell a house came second.
We were asking for a considerable amount over market value.
You sold the house in 2 days.
I was a kid still in university who wasn’t too sure about what the future brought and how I'd pay the bills once the ride ended. You inspired me. That day sitting at a dinner table with my entire extended Italian family. (Which is not a simple feat)
You've always trailblazed your way through life. It reminded me a little of myself. You were the reason I decided to go back to school fresh out of Uni to get my real estate license.
You brought me into C21 and again went above and beyond by opening up your office to share with me... Helped show me the ropes. Spent your most valuable resource on me. Your time.. And held my hand until I was able to walk on my own.
I had a wonderful experience in real estate and in those two years, I learnt a lot about myself and met some really amazing people along the way. Thank you for that.
Fast forward.... Jan 2013.
I'm selling my house on Butternut. Naturally.. you're the first/only person I call.
This time however was a much different experience than the wrinkled suit friend who showed up in the blue Honda civic.
This time you show up with a game plan, awesome feature sheets, a house cleaned top to bottom (again provided by you)
The house again sells... In 1 day.
There is no question as to WHY you are Barrie's #1 agent.
The real question here (and Im sure some agents would pay a lot of money for this answer lol) is HOW you are Barrie's #1. I know you're extremely modest, which is exactly why you need to hear these words.
It's not about your ability to buy/sell real estate. Real Estate is nothing but a commodity.
It's about your ability to continue to strive forward. Never looking backwards. Always finding a way.
Im as inspired today as i was sitting at that dinner table 7 years ago.
Thanks, For everything.
Your friend Jim.
I have utilized the services of Chad twice, the first time in purchasing my first home and the second time in the process of purchasing a cottage up north. In purchasing my first home Chad made the process almost seamless as his professionalism, willingness to go beyond what was expected of him and his witty personality made the process easier than expected!!
When my fiancé and I were looking at purchasing our cottage we contacted Chad again as my first experience with him was excellent. Once again Chad went beyond expectation and provided listings in our price range for cottage up north and when we chose a cottage that we wanted to view Chad arranged for us to meet with the realtor up north.
Chad obviously didn’t do all the work but he was and is extremely helpful as he has a true realization of the stresses that go along with purchasing a home and he did everything he could to make the process less stressful!!
We really appreciate your honesty, professionalism, and most of all, you made the whole process painless. You offered explanations along the way and just relaxed me. Thanks again!
Ian and Tammy Hughes
As usual Chad went above and beyond our expectations. His knowledge, expertise and professionalism are second to none. Not only will we not hesitate to use him again, but we will highly recommend him to family and friends.
Jason and Misty
Not only was Chad amazing and helpful but his team was also! Everyone showed professionalism while still making it a comfortable and friendly environment. Special thanks to Linda and Erica too! Thanks, thanks, thanks!!

After interviewing other Real Estate Agents, I choose Chad for several reasons and he met or exceeded everyone. Chad's professionalism and knowledge of the real estate combined with his open communication assisted me in the setting an appropriate price for my property. In addition, he knew how to market the property by bringing in a professional photographer and placing a virtual tour on a unique web site, and placing an ad in local papers. Chad's strategy paid large dividends for me as the house sold within two days during a period which the market was very slow. Chad was extremely helpful and always available before and after the sale. It is not hard to see why Chad has been the top Century 21 Real Estate Agent in Barrie over the last 8 years.
One very satisfied customer
"Buying a home is a big decision and causes a lot of anxiety for the many people involved. Working with Chad Traynor made the entire home purchase journey from beginning to end, relatively stress free. His upright character, professionalism and confidence provided the assurance I needed throughout the entire home purchase experience."
Our experience with Chad and the other staff at Century 21 was exemplary. Chad listened closely to what our ideas and needs were for our new home, then helped us find it! As first timers, buying a house can be stressful and overwhelming. Throughout our house search process we were continually impressed with Chad's commitment to us, and his patience to find us the right place. If the house had problems or potential resale issues, he was the first to identify them. This really made our first time home buying experience truly remarkable, and ensured we got the right place fro us. We will use Chad for all our real estate transactions in the future, and would highly recommend him to any other buyers/sellers.

The purpose of this letter is to express to you just how pleased we are with Chad Traynor as our trusted agent for the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. The purchase of our new home met with some highly unusual circumstances in the week leading up to the close. During this very tumultuous time and emotional rollercoaster, Chad was with us every step of the way. He demonstrated sound knowledge, provided objective points of view, was extremely attentive and timely with updates, and literally held our hands every step of the way. His guidance, patience and caring turned an otherwise very difficult time into a manageable and less burdensome time than it would have been. Ia m certain that with most other agents, we would have ben left out in the cold with more questions than answers and feeling alone in the process and uncertain. However, Chad went well above and beyond, always made himself available to us, and was genuine in his desire to see us through a difficult time. While its easy to describe Chad in many adoring attributes, his shining talent is in his ability to make a client feel as if they are his one and only client. And we all know how busy Chad actually is! Yet, he always made us feel that we were his number one priority by giving us his undivided attention. Our sincere thanks goes out to Chad for bringing us home. We thank our lucky stars for having him as our agent.
Lori and Dan P.
Chad was awesome! Prior to actually looking for a home Chad was so helpful in getting us connected to the right people before we could actually decide on a price range. Chad was great with setting us up our own website where new listings were ready for our viewing. He always had our best interest in mind in what we wanted in a home. We appreciate that kind of honesty. Chad knew the market and that was very helpful. Chad always stayed communicated with us to ensure we knew all that was going on. He made the purchase of our first home a great experience and stress free! He worried about all the big stuff. Thanks Chad for a great first home purchase!

Jim and Myriam
Chad did and incredible job. He handled everything for us, big and small. With working form 5:30 am to 6 pm it was difficult for me to get things done. Chad took care of everything for me, even stuff that I wouldn’t consider his job. He went above and beyond all expectations and we thank him for making our purchase our 1rst home stress free and easy.
I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the time and effort you spent in finding us a house. I love it here and you were so helpful, as I knew absolutely nothing about buying a place. As a first time home buyer, it can be very intimidating and you made me feel so comfortable. I felt like I was a little bit pushy calling you so much and wanting to go through so many condos ALL THE TIME, but you always found the time to get me through them that same day I called inquiring about them. You knew what I wanted, needed and could afford and were so patient to find me all of those things in one perfect place just for me. Thanks again for all your hard work and time spent with me.
My girlfriend and I purchased a house near the end of August, and we used Chad as our Real Estate agent. To say Chad did a good job would be an understatement. He was kind and courteous right from the get-go and he helped us shop for a home by constantly sending updated house to our email address. Chad was very flexible with the meet up times we arranged and was always on time himself. I would do business with Chad again in a heartbeat. Thanks again Chad, home shopping with you was a blast!
Jason and Nadina
I am writing to you to express my deepest gratitude regarding one of your agents, Chad Traynor. Chad approached my wife and I knowing we were interested in selling our house to upgrade to another residential property through a dinner party we both attended. His professionalism and dedication to his work led my wife and I to secure him as our one and only agent. As you know, we receive many phone calls and literature from many other agents in this city. Still, Chad has remained at the top of our list. He continually checks in with us to see how our lives are going, and to advise on any new properties that are available in the price range and neighbourhood we desire. I cannot say enough about the care and passion to the industry we have received from him and Century 21. I know that Chad will continue to provide the excellent service that Century 21 and their clients have been accustomed to over the years. Chad, when the time is right for us to make the move, we will be definitely in touch. Thanks for all your hard work,
Dan and Lori
Dear Chad, I just want to thank you for all your hard work and patience in helping me find my "first home". Even though it took us months to locate, I am so happy with the selection I (we) made. Your honesty and knowledge at such an exciting time was appreciated more than words can say. I have forwarded on your name to many of my friends and family and I look forward to working with you again in the future.Thanks again,
Hi my name is Lori Currie from Thorton. I would most definitely recommend Chad Traynor for your Real Estate needs. Chad listed my home and represented me for the first time in 2006. I have bought and sold several homes over the past 20 years. I found Chad to be excellent and thorough during the negotiations process and what most impressed me was his prompt and follow up after my home had been shown.
I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the efforts of Chad Traynor. In the winter of 2007 I started to look for a house that I could call home. I found this task to be very time consuming and confusing, as my knowledge of the real estate market is limited. I needed someone who could answer my questions and guide me to the proper resources for this major purchase. Once I was put in touch with Chad, my experience became easy and assuring. He put me at ease with his professionalism and personality. He was relentless in his quest to find me the perfect home. Chad was a great asset to me during this stressful time and I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell his or her home.
