Chris Fenton, Team Leader, BCom
If, upon talking with Chris Fenton for the first time, you are left with a feeling of trustworthiness, there is a good reason. Over his 15 year career Chris has helped countless clients on Vancouver Island with honest, straightforward advice when it come to buying and selling real estate. Chris is renowned among colleagues, clients and the media alike for his innovation, integrity and real estate intellect. The family man has two young children, and prides himself on a healthy work/life balance. It is for this reason, coupled with a overwhelming desire to provide his Vancouver Island clients with an amazing real estate experience, that he has built a team of real estate specialists.
The Fenton Team is a real estate marketing team serving Port Alberni, Ucluelet and Tofino. Each member of the team was hand selected by Chris for their extraordinary talent and integrity. The team's philosophy is simple, treat every single property like it is a million dollar listing, and treat every client as if they are the most important person in the world. The results speak for themselves - in their first year Royal LePage ranked The Fenton Team in the top 1% of real estate team's in Canada.
Chris believes that in order to have a long career in real estate there are a few key ingredients. "There are a handful of values you can't compromised on; Genuine care, attention to detail, an innovative mindset, mastery of negotiation, and above all else, surrounding yourself with amazing people."
These ingredients have led to a long list of accolades. In 2017 Chris was inducted into the Royal LePage National Chairman's Club as the #47 ranked agent in Canada out of nearly 18,000. The same year, The Fenton Team was awarded the Royal LePage Top Team Award for British Columbia. The year before Chris was awarded the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board's Realtor's Care Award which recognizes a handful of Realtor's who give back and improve the quality of life in their local communities. This was the same year he was awarded the Top New Corporate Partner for Action Against Hunger Canada.
To remain innovative and focused, Chris participates in a number of Canadian and International Mastermind Groups that focus heavily on client needs. He has also been a guest speaker at a number of real estate conferences.
While Chris is proud of his team's accomplishment, it's most important to him to stay grounded. "At the end of the day, I can honestly say I've never focused on earning or awards," he's quick to point out. "My team and I strive to be reachable, approachable, and brutally honest. I believe that it's all about our client's best interest. By striving to always put the client first, we end up doing what's best for ourselves. In fact, it's the deals that I've talked our clients out of that I'm most proud of."
