Making a cross country move with a large family is very stressful. Chris alleviated a lot of that stress. He listened to our wants and needs as a family both from a situational and financial standpoint-based on those things he helped narrow our search to the perfect home. Chris continues to work hard for us throughout the entire process, even post sale! He is simply amazing and we consider ourselves to be very fortunate in having the opportunity to work with him.
This was my first time buying a home and a Mortgage broker my brother worked with recommended Shaun. He helped me set up walkthroughs and find quite a few houses in my price range within just a few days of contacting him. We ended up finding the perfect house and he helped make the entire process of buying both simple and easy for me, someone with little knowledge and experience on the process. I highly recommend Shaun to anyone looking to buy and will definitely be working with him down the road should the opportunity present itself!
Chris is a consummate professional. We couldn't have been happier with having Chris sell our home. He is very responsive and assisted us with timely service requests and repairs to assure a swift sell. His knowledge of the local market was valuable in our decision making process. Chris was part of every step of our process - validating our frustrations and celebrating our joys - which made selling our home an enjoyable experience.
FYI If you are considering selling or buying a home weather you have a realtor or not, it would be wise to at least contact Chris Edward. Chris has one of the best marketing strategies in the industry!! His negotiating skills are phenomenal and he looks out for the best interest of his clients. During your entire process with Chris, he will constantly keep you informed good news or bad news. In the end you will not only see him as a great realtor but a good friend.
I am limited in this review of Chris Edwards, as it only lets me rate him with a maximum of 5 stars, and it doesn’t let me add more. He truly deserves the highest rating. Chris’ approach to selling a home encompasses everything you could ever need, and want, in a realtor. He is kind and compassionate in his interpersonal communications, as well as sharp in his approach to selling your home; Honest, knowledgeable, and always comes prepared with a plan. He knows his business, and he is truly the man to sell your home. Selling a home is one of the most stressful times in a persons life, even more during one of the most stressful years, and Chris simply takes all of that stress out of the equation. My family’s experience with Chris and his team has been absolutely positive. I would recommend him over and over again.
I had the pleasure of working with both Chris and Shaun. Both were extremely responsive throughout the entire home buying process. They took the time to ensure I understood what needed to be done every step along the way, but also provided guidance that I didn’t consider. Once I closed on my home, they still keep in contact and remain responsive to any questions that I have. I highly recommend the Chris Edward’s Group - RE/MAX United if you’re in the home buying/selling market. You won’t regret your decision.
We worked with Shaun Livernois from Chris' team. He was a great resource for us. We moved to the state earlier this year so still didn't know the market that well. Shaun's knowledge of the area helped us feel comfortable that we were buying a house in a great location. Throughout the process he was always available via email, phone or text, and had great input on each house we looked at. Being new to the area he also helped a lot with understanding the nuances of the buying process specific to North Carolina. He also recommended a great lender that was very easy to work with.
When we finally found the house we ended up purchasing he helped us put together a strong offer that we were also comfortable with, as well as negotiating the terms of the purchase. He kept in touch constantly making sure we had everything taken care of on time for the closing.
We'd definitely work with Shaun again and would happily recommend him to anyone on the market.
We cannot recommend Shaun highly enough. We moved from another state and had not one hiccup along the way. Shaun introduced himself over a zoom call, sent us information about the process and the area to help get us started, and curated the list of available homes to fit within the criteria we discussed all before we met in person. He helped us think through and develop our criteria to the point where he really understood what we were looking for rather than simply asking us questions about how to filter the MLS search. When we got to town he had planned full days of showings during which he talked us through the way each house fit our criteria, what it lacked, pointed out features of homes in the area we were unfamiliar with, and continued to develop an idea of what we were looking for based on what we thought about each home. He didn't sugar coat any part of the process and was always upfront about the realities of everything from resale value of certain features to how pushy we were being about repair requests. The home we fell in love with was not one we put at the top of our list, but Shaun saw the ways it fit what we had asked for and scheduled it. After deciding on the house he helped talk us through the offer, he went to the inspection and did a video call so we could speak to the inspector, offered his insights from inspection that helped us negotiate for repairs, and checked on the property before closing to make sure the seller fulfilled obligation such as removing a shed and other garbage from the property. During the process and after purchase he has referred us to a broker, insurance agent, inspector, contractor, and roofer who have all been A+.
Have used Chris for two home purchases twice and he is excellent. Very professional, experienced and expert at finding ways to resolve sticky situations. Always my first choice.
We worked with Shaun Livernois from this group and he is a Rockstar! His extensive real estate knowledge and his outgoing personality made him really easy to work with. He also kept us to all of our deadlines and made sure the whole process went smoothly which made buying our first home stress free. We highly recommend working with Shaun for your next home.
Shaun Livermore is our agent. Excellent service. His prompting us to get professional inspection saved us thousands. We were a thousand miles away during build. Shaun kept us apprised of progress regularly.
Chris is a fantastic realtor!! His experience and expertise was remarkable through the whole process. He listened to our preferences in a house, made notes at each house we viewed to learn our preferences, and found us the perfect house! He also has contacts with contractors, plumbers, electricians, carpet cleaners, painters, and anyone else for anything you need done at your new house.
Chris was also wonderful in helping us sell our previous house. He knew exactly what to do every step of the way. He helped us stage the house, took amazing photos, and wrote a perfect description to get maximum exposure for the listing. Our house sold in record time for the maximum value.
Chris was there every step of the way through the negotiation process in selling our current house for top dollar and getting our new house for a fair price. Chris has seen it all and his advise was invaluable. Step 1 for anyone looking to buy or sell a house, call Chris Edwards!
I recently bought my second home with Chris Edwards and can not say enough great things about him and his staff. The transaction was seamless, he went above and beyond on several items on my behalf, and he is the ultimate professional. He also provided me with resources for everything I needed to have done after the closing which saved me a lot of time and research. Always available and responsive. I highly recommend Chris for buying or selling. You will not be disappointed!
A rock-star agent! A deep knowledge of the area. He and his team, including connections for lender and attorney, drove the sale of our home (within 1 day on market) and purchase of our new home (contract to close within a month) go extremely smooth. His communication and responsive, was exceptional.
My wife and I selected Chris Edwards as our agent in both the selling of our old home and purchase of our new home. This was the BEST DECISION we could have made!
Chris and team performed exceptionally well from start to finish, including assessing our needs, suggesting numerous options on the market, responding extremely quickly via multiple platforms, recommending professional contractors, evaluating strategy, and simplifying a complex process. He even had a video design expert create a digital marketing piece using drone footage, which was awesome!
Chris possesses intimate knowledge of the Triangle real estate market. We ended up purchasing the first home Chris ever showed us!
Chris has the social skills and personality to lead you through this journey. We felt 100% confident in Chris's knowledge and expertise the whole way. His team knocked it out of the park!
Couldn’t be more pleased! Shaun is the best! Not only did he find us a home within one day, he had our home under contract within 48 hours after being up on the market! Amazing!!
We have bought houses many times before, but never in such a hot market. From the very first moment, Shaun Livernois was FANTASTIC to work with! He helped us find the perfect lender, got us in to see listings quickly, turned around multiple offers at the drop of a hat and managed to remain calm...and keep us that way...during the entire process. His expertise on the unique North Carolina buying process is so valuable. He goes the extra mile. We could not have found the perfect home without him. We are forever grateful. We will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Nick Matthews went above and beyond to help my wife and me find our first house. We started looking for a home at a challenging time but Nick helped us through every step and was always willing to show us any house he could. When we found the right one, he worked to make sure all issues from the inspection were addressed by the owner. I would recommend Nick to anyone looking for a home in NC.
nick matthews helped us find home .. very helpful
looked at several locations with immediate response and follow ups . stayed in contact with us daily until we got what we wanted .
Nick Mathews was my "Buyer's Agent" to help me through the arduous task of finding my "Perfect Home" in the Raleigh,NC metropolitan area. It's a big and growing area so it could have been a bit overwhelming if it wasn't for Nick's patience and professionalism. I'm a retired home builder so Nick had to deal with my " I know all there is to know about house hunting" attitude.
Nick is a calm, cool and collected realtor. No hype, no pressure, "just the facts" kind of guy. But he did his homework on every possible home choice as far as location,of course, resale, and quality of construction.
In short he found me a perfect home, Craftsman style, which is what I wanted, in a new and growing development with a lot of fine, friendly neighbors. Thanks Nick, for doing a "perfect" job !
Chris was extremely helpful in working with me to buy my first home. As a first time buyer, I was particularly impressed by Chris's patience and responsiveness to my questions at all times of the day. In such a fast-paced market, he was always prepared and organized, and he kept me informed in a timely manner. Chris is clearly an expert of his craft, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in this area!
As first-time home buyers, the buying process could have been stressful but Chris and his team made everything so easy. His team is a well-oiled machine and ever person we worked with was responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. I could feel their genuine care all throughout the process.
Chris’s advice throughout the offer process was critical and he never pressured us into making a certain decision. He supported us no matter what our decision was and did a great job educating us.
I am extremely satisfied with our home purchase and would highly recommend Chris and his team to anyone! I personally will be reaching out once we decide to sell and buy our next home.
Thank you Chris!
Our experience with Shaun was top notch. He put forth the effort to market the home appropriately with professional photography and videos which was crucial especially during COVID with many buyers doing more online shopping. Moves are never stress free, but Shaun helped keep us on track making sure all steps were covered and completed on a timely basis.
Shaun Livernois is the best realtor we have ever worked with, and we've had a few! He is patient and spent time educating us on the market and the process of buying a home here in NC. Not only does he know the real estate business but he has a great eye for other things as well. He always made sure to check things like the siding, crawl spaces and windows, just to name a few. Shaun really got to know us and had a great sense of what we wanted. He showed us a lot of homes and was patient, enabling us to find the perfect house for our family. His greatest concern was that we were 100% happy with the home, not making a quick sale. When the time came to make an offer, Shaun was able to give us great advice with detailed comps. We recommend Shaun strongly and will definitely be referring him and using him for any future real estate needs.
We have worked with Chris on both the purchase and sale of our home, and we can’t recommend him enough! He is hard-working, forward-thinking, and truly knowledgeable and experienced in this field. We highly recommend using him for any future real estate venture.
Shaun took the time to make sure that I understood the entire process as a first time home buyer. He answered all of my questions and made the process as smooth as possible. Overall great experience.
This was my first time buying a home so you can imagine the stress and pressure. Chris was there every step of the way. Whenever I had questions about something the Lender said, the builders, or the other real estate agent, he was there to review what was said or written with me to ease my mind. On top of that, my wife and I were very particular in the kind of house we wanted and he came through with every detail, finding us our dream home.
We were buying our first house and had no idea how the whole process worked. Chris was SO helpful and made the process so easy. He did a great job of explaining how everything worked every step of the way, and helped us feel confident in the decisions we made. We are now settling into our new home and couldn't be happier! We will definitely recommend Chris to any friends and family in the area who buy a house!
From start to finish Chris and his team did an outstanding job selling our mother’s condo. Chris’ excellent knowledge of the local housing market paid off in a sale within the time frame we had targeted. Chris’ full-service approach included providing reputable contacts for the repairs and updating that was needed to make the unit more marketable. He monitored the work of the contractors to ensure that it was carried out in a complete and timely manner. We were very pleased with the results. Chris was available any time of day that we needed him. We appreciated his caring professionalism and excellent communication skills. We would definitely recommend Chris to friends and family. Thank you, Chris!
Chris and his team were excellent throughout the home buying process. He was very truthful and upfront during the process. We always felt like we could communicate with him and he would quickly respond. He was extremely organized with all of the paperwork involved and at closing. We never felt pressured to move on something until we found the right fit for us. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and did a good job of educating us. I would highly recommend working with Chris Edwards and his team!
As an older person who was moving across the country, out of a house I had lived in for 51 years, I was very indecisive and hesitant about moving. Chris was very patient, never pushy or hard sell. There is an old saying, 'he has the patience of Job' well, that's Chris!
Since my granddaughter, who lives here, was very involved, he had different concerns from both ends of the country to deal with and always adapted his schedule for conference calls to suit out time differences. From beginning to end (which was less than 2 months), Chris was very responsive and available to answer all of our concerns. He explained and walked me through all the paperwork over the phone as we went along.
I feel like he was always looking for the best possible options for me and now that I am 'mostly' settled in, I know it was a good choice.
I will always recommend Chris whenever the opportunity arises.
Shaun was the best. His market research and Sales/List pricing was spot on. Being first time Sellers...he helped us navigate the process with ease and the whole process very peaceful. Also excellent with communications....courteous and prompt with all forms...texts, calls, emails. Visited us multiple times even before we signed him up. Would highly recommend the CEG team.
Chris is great and pleasurable to work with, he helped my family find the perfect home in Wake Forest. Chris works hard to find the right home to fit your budget and makes sure everything is in place for an easy transition.
I have used Chris and his team myself twice, as well as recommended him to associates I have had relocate to the triangle from other areas of the country. From buying to selling Chris and his team have been excellent to deal with, very responsive to questions and very knowledgeable about the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a top notch agent.
Chris helped us buy our first home along with one for my mother. He handled this process while we lived out of state. He made it smooth and stress free. He has now helped us sell both homes when we needed to relocate and once again a seamless, simple experience. He handled everything and his expertise makes him shine! You would never go wrong working with Chris, he puts his clients first and his years of experience and knowledge of the areas is nothing short of perfect. I recommend him to anyone that asks me if we know an agent. He’s a genuine person and a pleasure to work with. He has a team member named Shaun who also is very helpful and accommodating. If we have to move again we will always go to Chris Edwards...there’s just not enough words to describe how great this agency and people are!!!! Thank you again Chris!!!!!
Chris was my buyer agent 12 years ago and we had a great experience with him, so when we decided to sell I didn’t hesitate to contact him again. As a seller agent he made everything so easy for us, the process was smooth and the house sold quickly. Chris is very professional, knowledgeable and kind. I absolutely recommended him for selling or buying a home!
Chris did an awesome job helping us buy our new home and selling our old one. We would recommend Chris for anyone buying or selling a home. Chris was recommended to us by a friend.
I recently purchased a home, site-unseen, through Shaun. He was fantastic to work with. He was completely on top of every part of the process - from being accommodating while showing homes through multiple family members to staying on top of the bank to close on time. He took the time to give me a detailed overview of the nuances of North Carolina real estate. I really couldn't ask for much more from an agent.
Shaun Livernois guided me through every step and always made sure to answer my questions in a timely manner. His professionalism, knowledge and honesty are much respected and appreciated.
Chris is an exceptional real estate agent. We used Chris when we bought our home (when we were new to the area) and when we sold our home. When we purchased our home 4 years ago, he was very patient with us and gave us plenty of area knowledge without trying to persuade us one way or the other. The house we bought had multiple offers and the seller told us that how Chris handled the negotiations was the reason we got the house (our offer wasn't the best one they received). He helped secure contractors for us as we did a lot of renovations and maintained contact through the 4 years we lived there. When it was time for us to move, he provided great professional insight into how to maximize our sale. It was a little trickier as it was a corporate relocation, but Chris took as much stress out of the process as he could. We ended up having 10+ showings that first weekend, multiple offers and closed over list price. Chris again was patience and insightful with helping us navigate through the process. We think so highly of Chris that when we had questions about our out of state home purchase, we called him for his expertise. I've moved around a bunch, and worked with various relocation real estate agents, and Chris is head and shoulders above the rest. We are so appreciative of Chris's professional, kindness, support and expertise.
Shaun was absolutely amazing! I can’t stress enough how patient he was in helping and guiding us through our search for a home. I know for a fact that he had many clients but he always made us feel like his highest priority. He quickly picked up on what we were looking for (and what we definitely did not want) which meant he did not waste our time. He took the time to make sure the houses he showed us weren't duds. In every house we visited, he was always on time, never hurried me, was fully invested, and excellent at pointing out things I might not notice. Once we found the house we wanted, he was great at walking us through the whole process and advising us on the price negotiation. Additionally, he gave us several recommendations on contractors, places to visit in the area, and general suggestions for our new home; in other words, he went above and beyond. Shaun truly made us feel like he cared for us and we connected as if we had been long-time friends. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend Shaun and if I’m ever in need of a realtor, Shaun is my only choice. In short: Shaun is professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and patient.

Our experience with Shaun at Chris Edwards was exceptional. We were moving from out of state with a tight deadline and very little knowledge of the local area. Shaun went above and beyond to listen to exactly what we wanted out of a house, educated us about different neighborhoods and areas, and found us the perfect house. Even when we were under contract and not able to be at the house physically, he arranged everything for us, visiting the site multiple times and keeping us in the loop on everything. He negotiated the terms perfectly and made the process so much less stressful! I would recommend him 100 times over.
When I found out about my job offer half way across the country that required a move in under 6 weeks, I was feeling rather nervous about a lot of things related to our house...except the sale of it. From the moment we contacted Shaun, who had helped us purchase 2 years before, until the moment it sold, we felt completely calm about our house sale. My family and I left the state before we put it on the market, knowing full well it would be in the best of hands. Shaun helped us make our home sale feel like a breeze... and I don't think that's an easy task to accomplish.
Thanks, Shaun, for all your help, expertise, and your positive attitude throughout it all. If we ever move back to the area, we'll be looking for you to help us purchase our next home! All the best.
I highly recommend Shaun. As a first time home buyer I was nervous about the arduous process of looking for a home in this high demand market but Shaun made the process painless. It's a fact that your realtor can make or break your home buying process and Shaun definitely made mine a success. He was incredibly responsive from start to finish and responded within 10 minutes every time I reached out to him. He also took the time to fully explain every step of the process and what all of my options were. I truly felt like I had someone in my corner who was looking out for what I wanted and took the time to make sure I was comfortable with every decision. In the end, I have a beautiful home and can look back at my first home buying experience with only happy memories.
As a first time home buyer with a limited budget and very limited time, I could not have asked for a better agent than Shaun. He clearly and patiently walked me through the process and helped me sign a contract for a great house in less than a week! Shaun was responsive and available at all times, and at no point did I feel pressured to do anything I wasn't comfortable with. Shaun negotiated aggressively on my behalf and secured several extra thousand dollars that I would not have been able to get on my own. He quickly offered his honest opinion on every aspect of the houses we saw and the actions of the sellers. His associates in the mortgage and legal departments were similarly helpful and great to work with. Buying a new home is an extremely stressful time in one's life, and with Shaun's help the process from start to finish went as well as I could have hoped. I won't hesitate to call him for any future projects, or to heartily recommend him to all of my friends!
In 50 plus years of buying and selling my personal homes I have never encountered any realtor that comes close to Chris in his professional and personal involvement in my real estate affairs. He guided us through the process seamlessly. In the true sense Chris IS a real estate professional. I highly recommend Chris and for sure when the need arises for me he will be the only one I turn to.
I engaged with Chris based on the recommendation of a friend. My intent was to do as little work as possible to my house and to get it onto the market quickly. Chris made some recommendations regarding changes to the house to make the house more attractive to buyers and to help ensure a quick sale. Though skeptical (at first!) I ultimately went with just about every recommendation he made, importantly including after we hit a "hiccup" about halfway through the updates to the home.
In the end and at every step of the way, Chris steered me right. The house was priced 5% higher when we went to market as compared to the initial assessment, and was under agreement in less than 3 days, closing 5 weeks later.
Finally, Chris' "even keel" approach works very well in a potentially stressful process and was definitely helpful along the way. Happy to highly recommend Chris to any sellers out there, and look forward to utilizing his services at some point in the next year or so when I'm ready to buy.
Chris was absolutely wonderful, supportive and extremely knowledgeable!
I will use him again whenever I am in need of another move. I am very grateful for all of Chris' help and guidance. It made all of the difference.
I was selling from another state and Chris was awesome. It was seamless. He helped with items I couldnt do feom out of state as well as negotiating sticky points.
