Shawnee is very knowledgeable, punctual polite and has attention to detail. She demonstrates excellent communication skills and always has the client’s best interest on hand. She makes looking for a house to live in quite easy and stress free. I would definitely recommend her.
Our hunt for a new home came on rather sudden and was not expected. We immediately called Chris Allen. A trusted friend and experienced agent. Chris offers a pressure free environment. What we liked best about Chris, is he works in facts, not estimates. Chris was never tardy and was always available even at short notice. We saw numerous condos, towns and homes before settling down in a beautiful Mt Pleasant neighbourhood. With Chris you get the straight goods and a smile from a guy always ready and willing to answer any question. He truly is Toronto’s Real Estate Authority! Thank you!

Let me start by saying this; I am not the kind of person to spend my time writing reviews for every product and service I have used or bought. Who has the time for that? There are certain situations though, when the service you have paid for goes above and beyond your expectations, a situation where you are faced with the question -”How can give back? How can I show my appreciation for excellence, professionalism and top quality service?” You obviously must write a review and summarize your experience so that others can benefit.
Chris Allen and his team at Slavens & Associates truly are the embodiment of exceptional. I have known Chris personally for many years, before he was Toronto’s real estate Authority. His personality, morals, professionalism and character shine through in his real estate career. Immediately his confidence and dedication had me at ease dealing with my sale and search of a new home in one of Ontario’s fastest growing communities located in the GTA.
The advice Chris offered, as well as his knowledge and intuition proved accurate and profitable to my wife and I. Everybody knows a realtor it seems, I myself have many friends and acquaintances involved in real estate. So why choose Chris over so many others? The answer to that is simple, his dedication reputation and drive for success will benefit not only his career, but each and every one of his clients. This is a journey that you will want to be involved in. What a fantastic person to deal with, and a pleasure to know such a quality individual.

Rhonda and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your efforts in helping to sell our house on Melrose Ave., as well as your support in helping us buy our new home.
The selling strategy you developed, including the go to market price, staging, timing and negotiation along with the team you brought with you to achieve this, resulted in our getting a price that was far beyond our expectations. Not only did we receive 15% above our asking price, buy the final price we received was significantly higher than other homes for sale in the same category within our neighbourhood.
On top of all that, your savvy negotiation skills allowed us to purchase our new home at a cost well below market.
Needless to say, we are thrilled with the results, a win-win situation for our family on both sides – buying and selling.
Please don’t retire any time soon, we will need your services again in putting the new house up for sale in 10 or 15 years.
Sincerely, Josh Mandel and Rhonda Shapiro
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank Chris Allen & Donna Taylor for all the hard work they did for us in selling the house on Bathurst for us. Tony and I have had a few experiences in dealing with some agents and NONE have been as amazing as the one we had with you both. You were both so very professional but always willing to help the clients. You both made us all feel very comfortable and we always trusted in your advise and guidance. Especially as my parents were elderly and needed extra attention and assistance you were both always there. There was a trust between us all that is hard to find. We would highly recommend you both to any friends or family members without hesitation.
Listed on Thursday, sold on Tuesday. Thanks, Greg, for all the advice on how to sell our house quickly. I followed all your advice, and it paid off!!
As a first time home buyer, I was a little overwhelmed and unsure as to where to even start looking. Not only did Greg take me literally across Toronto, from the West to the East, to zone in on an area that I liked and was comfortable in, he provided information, opinions and insight that made the process a lot simpler than I had originally thought it would be. I found a place that I liked and after Greg did some research he was able to show me a place that I immediately fell in love with and within days, it was mine. We saw lots of places and shared many laughs, I have found a place I love and can call home. Thank you so much Greg. It truly was a wonderful experience and i will definitely refer you to friends and family and work with you again!
Greg helped us find the right home for our family. He was kind, friendly, informative and most of all, he was patient. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent who will do what is in your best interests.
Greg is a very efficient and professional realtor. He was able to assist me in very short time frame to find a home. I’m extremely pleased with his service and his ability to understand my needs in looking for a particular home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for realtor.
Thank you for everything Greg!

Marc was focused and helpful from our first meeting. He had good suggestions for staging and listing my condominium, and answered all of my questions promptly and honestly. Marc co-ordinated the photographing of my property with minimal disruption, and I was extremely pleased with the high quality of the photos he selected to market my condo. Viewings appointments were handled efficiently through e-mail, and Marc kept me updated on the feedback he received from other agents and their clients. My condo sold quickly for almost exactly the price I hoped for before I listed. I appreciated Marc’s professional advice at all stages of the selling process, and I would highly recommend him to others looking for a reliable and trustworthy agent.
As a military member with a few short days for our house hunting trip, Chris was able to narrow down our search quickly and help us find what we were looking for. His knowledge of the Toronto markets made the job so much less stressful. He worked extremely late hours to make sure that we had everything done before we had to leave. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a place to live.
