By: Dawn & Jeremy
We recently purchased our first home with the help of Real Estate agent Chantal Traversy of EXIT Realty in Barrie, Ontario. Although our time with Chantal was rather short, we had 100% confidence and comfort with her character, knowledge and genuine guidance in the process of purchasing such a large investment. Chantal was referred to us through a trusting friend, who assured us that professionalism and honesty is what we will receive. Being first time home buyers, it was of great importance to us that we work with someone who is trustworthy and brutally honest; someone who can represent our best interests and put in the hard work to get us what we want. Without question, Chantal offered us the highest level of service; providing all the answers to our questions and even extended contact information from her professional network to ensure the purchase was as smooth as can be. Being such an intimidating industry, Chantal made it easy – we didn’t feel the pressure of purchasing a home in a “Seller’s” market. We were well informed and educated on the processes that were about to take place and she made it clear of the next steps; we never felt like we didn’t know what was going on behind the scenes. Without doubt, we would highly recommend Chantal to all our friends and family, including those first time home buyers who want this experience to be the BEST one! We were the lucky ones - We found a house and within hours, our offer was accepted. We can’t wait to make this house our home and to have you over for some wine to celebrate! Thank you, Chantal

I feel tremendously compelled write the following. I have had the amazing pleasure of working with Chantal Traversy since May of 2016, as our real estate agent, in search of a commercial property to settle in our office. I cannot imagine a better person, human being, agent and now friend, to work with. I did not know Chantal before that and before meeting her, had little hope of finding the perfect place for us, little did I know. Chantal's incredible dedication and absolute commitment to finding us what we wanted and needed can be rivaled by no one. She worked with us patiently, compassionately, kindly and intensely. She answered every call we made to her, every question we had and went to bat for us when necessary. Every step of the way she acted with grace and the utmost support for us. There are very limited words to describe how we feel about her work and about her as a person. I can only say, that her belief in us and deep understanding of what we needed and her hardwork and patience in getting to know us and our needs is unparalleled by anyone we have come to know. Chantal will always have our business and we would readily recommend her to anyone we know. Our office considers Chantal as part our team when making decisions for growth. Thank you so very much Chantal, we are so thrilled to have you as part of our team of business growth advisors.

Chantal is a tireless worker-week after week she would take my father through many homes, ensuring that each one met my father's list of criteria. She helped my father find his last home, and now she has helped to sell his final home. From the moment that Chantal first walked through my late father's home, right through to the 3rd and 4th offer, and finally, to the signing of the e-documents (online), Chantal was very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and gave us great advice throughout this entire process! Chantal was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to call her again for any of my real estate needs! Sincerely, Nicole Seadon

I am sending this note to outline how impressed I am with the level of professionalism I have experienced working with Chantal Traversy. My sister and I, co- executors to our father's Estate chose Chantal to work with us to sell our late father's home in Midland. Firstly, I have to say her compassion for our sensitive situation was greatly appreciated. Chantal's extensive experience with the Midland market was key to us securing our $15 000 above asking... her confidence in the likelihood of getting more than asking was echoed by our advisor at our bank... this was not due to the fact it was set low, it was due to her knowledge of the Midland market at THAT specific time. We cannot thank Chantal more for such a seamless, professional experience. We highly recommend her! Sincerely, Trevor Snow

Contacting EXIT Lifestyle Realty was the best decision we made during our house selling journey. Had we not made the call, we would not have had the pleasure of meeting Chantal Traversy. Working with Chantal was like working with family, for she made us feel right at home. She constantly made an effort to ensure we felt like her number one priority and, more over, showed us what it really meant to go above and beyond. Chantal consistently displayed strict ethics, strong knowledge in her field, and first-rate reliability and dedication. If ever she was unsure of an answer to one of our many questions, she made sure to get back to us without delay and with all of the facts. Picture the best Realtor anyone could ask for and then imagine someone even better. That person is Chantal Traversy. And so, without Chantal, we wouldn't be sitting in our beautiful new home, effortlessly writing out this testimonial

Dustin did a fantastic job selling my home. He guided me through the process every step of the way. He responds promptly to inquires, keeps you informed and is there when you need him to represent you. Really great agent and a really great person!
Chris was referred to me by a close friend when I was contemplating a move. Knowing his already excellent reputation in the market was reassuring. Chris seemed to anticipate and prepare for any questions or scenarios I had, which alleviates a lot of the stress associated with both the buy and sell transaction. Chris has this relaxed sophistication that brings a sense of calm into an obviously stressful scenario. My timelines were extremely tight, and his custom marketing approach included all the steps necessary for success. I can now spend the next month packing without worry. I would refer Chris and his team without hesitation.

For anyone who wants to have a great experience selling their home we highly recommend Chantal Traversy from the Chris Messecar team. She was patient and honest with us and was quick to get the stagers and photographers here for us so we could list quickly. They made our home look even better! Anyone we came into contact with from the team were also professional and friendly. We had a great experience with Chantal, it truly was a pleasure working with her to sell our home!

What can I say about Chris Messecar and the Exit Lifestyle Realty team? We were referred to Chris by a friend from out of town who is also in real estate, and we are so glad that we decided to give Chris a call! We’ve dealt with many real estate agents over many years - some of those were very good, but when it comes to Chris and his team at Exit Lifestyle Realty, he is, by far, the best we could have found! When we met Chris, he said his goal was to make our experience as enjoyable, painless, brief and successful as possible; well, I would say, without a doubt, he met all of those goals and many that we didn’t know of. To start, Chris Messecar is a genuine, caring and pleasant guy to talk to; but more importantly, he knows what he’s doing when it comes to selling your home! But he also became a trusted partner along the way. He wanted to get the best price for us, but not to drag it out for weeks & months, unnecessarily, and that’s exactly what he did. Chris sold our house in the shortest time and for more than our asking price!! The whole team - the person calling to make appointments, the woman who staged our house, beautifully, and the photographer who took professional quality photos and a great video: these are the details you’re not going to find in most real estate teams - these are top notch and make a huge difference! We have our brochure, video and photos preserved because they’re so beautiful and we’ve had many happy memories in this home!

We would like to offer Chris Messecar and his team a sincere thank you for selling our home. A house is usually the most significant investment a family can make. And, of course, everyone thinks their home is special. For us, making a decision on which real estate agent we wanted to trust with the selling of our home was extremely important. However, after a very pleasant experience, we had no regrets about choosing Chris and Exit Realty First North to represent us. Chris took the time to find out what was important to us as Sellers, he did the market research, and he did exactly what he promised to do. We could not be happier about the outcome. Chris and his team sold our house for 98% of the asking price, and it was sold in 2 days from the date of listing. As Home Owners, and Real Estate Investors, we plan to call on Chris again in the near future to help us with our next real estate transaction.

From the first encounter, we knew Chris was the one to guide us through our real estate journey. During both the selling and buying process we strategized and he helped us attain our goals. We truly thank him for his wisdom and professionalism. His friendship was a nice bonus! Thanks for everything Chris.

Chris was recommended to us by our bank manager, who described him as a “top seller.” He lived up to his reputation by selling our home within one day for 98% of asking price. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and a great listener who patiently guided us through every step of the process. Additionally, his clients receive the benefit of his extensive network of connections. He brought in a top-notch team of stager, painters, and photographer to help us prepare our home for listing and eventual sale. We highly recommend his services to anyone who is thinking about buying or selling, and we will definitely use his services again in the future. Thank you, Chris, for your patience and guidance in this process. We couldn’t be happier with the overall experience and the results you got for us!

We were so impressed with his character and work ethic. It was a seamless, and an enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend Chris to everyone we know.

Thanks to Chris we have sold our house! Honesty, patience, knowledge, and understanding are only a few characteristics that describe him. Chris' positive attitude and determination also helped us find a new house to call home. We were very pleased not only with his professionalism but the staff at Exit as well. They were very friendly and considerate when booking appointments. We developed a lasting friendship with Chris and will not hesitate to use him for any further real estate needs. We have found our "representative for life".
