Reviews

Shaun Livernois has assisted me in purchasing two homes within the last 7 years. His ability to truly listen, understand, and deliver based on your personal needs is unmatched. Buying a home in a "hot" market can be difficult but Shaun was determined to help me find the perfect home and made himself constantly available to make it happen. As long as Shaun is a real estate agent I'll never use anyone else. If you're looking for an honest, reliable, and overall good person to work with, Shaun is your guy!


I cannot say enough about the home buying experience with Shaun. He was recommended by a friend who also moved from NY. We started in March from New York, and when we arrived in North Carolina he wasted no times in lining up homes according to our parameters, and never pushed us outside of what we wanted. He was very respectful of our wishes and was the ultimate professional. Amazingly, we found a house we loved in 2 days, and he guided us through the offer with and we got the house. His market knowledge and business acumen were outstanding. If you need an agent, call Shaun! This is from a very skeptical New Yorker, he is the best.


Shaun was amazing. To be honest, we would not be in our home without him. It was because of his connections that we were even able to get a house in this crazy market. 110% would recommend Shaun to anyone.


Shaun Livernois made our first time home buying experience seamless. He is very experienced and really got a feel for what we were looking for. You can tell Shaun really cares about his clients. Couldn't recommend him enough!!


A wonderful experience with this team! They are quick to respond and get the work done in a timely manner! I love this team and would highly recommend them if you are looking for a successful and enjoyable process!


We had the best experience with Chris. He is so knowledgeable and thorough. During a time of so many options and uncertainty, Chris did a great job educating us and guiding us through the entire process. We are now in our new home and would recommend Chris to anyone and everyone looking to buy a home.


This is our third time selling our home in the Raleigh market and my goodness, it’s the wild west out here. Chris was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, reassuring, and prepared. From our first meeting, to providing recommendations for contractors and other pros who could assist us with a short repair list, to navigating through multiple offers and getting to closing day, Chris was proactive, prepared and present. We will recommend Chris to family and friends.


We were relocating from out of state to NC and honestly the process was rough. Lots of hoops to jump through (on our end) which made for a pretty stressful relocation. Chris Edwards was the only man for the job. Literally. His professionalism and knowledge is top notch. We will ONLY recommend Chris to our family and friends here in North Carolina. You simply cannot go wrong with Chris on your side.


Shaun was an amazing advocate for us. Not only were we moving across the country, but doing so in an incredibly competitive time for the Raleigh market. Shaun kept us informed constantly and made us feel confident that he was keeping an eye on us, and wanted us to find the RIGHT house, not just close a sale. We've already referred two of our friends/family members to him.


So many great things to say; where to start??? My family recently worked with realtor Shaun Livernois, a partner at Chris Edwards Group Realty in the purchase of a home in the Wake County, NC market. First off, if you are purchasing in this current market, do yourself a favor and us a realtor with their finger on the pulse of that market. Shaun is at the tip-top of the the buyers game. He provided real-time industry knowledge of current trends and buying practices. My family and I are believers that he is the only reason we were able to buy in this current market.

Another great reason for going with Shaun; responsiveness! There was not a single text, email or phone call that was not answered or returned almost immediately. I honestly believe that if all lines of communication were down, he would send a homing pigeon with a response before he would not answer.

Finally, I get to one of, if not the, most important parts of a realtor experience...personality. Look, lets be honest, buying a home can be a little scary or stressful; you want someone who can empathize with you and make you comfortable that you are making good decisions. Shaun gave us guidance and advice as if we were his own family. He made us feel that he was truly looking out for our best interest, not the interest of a buyer's commission.

Bottom line, do yourself a favor and reach out to Shaun. You don't have to take my word for it. Do the initial "meet and greet" Zoom call with him, which by the way he does not require a signed agent contract to do, and you will see and hear a man who will care for you and your family like his own


I highly recommend Chris Edwards Group. We had the best realtor, Shaun Livernois! Shaun is an expert in his field. He provided us with a market analysis, answered all our questions and took the time to share next steps during the selling process. We are very pleased with our experience. Thank you Shaun for helping us move onto the next chapter in our lives!


I could not have been more pleased with Chris Edwards. He was the epitome of professionalism but extremely friendly and courteous. He was very efficient and punctual and followed his game plan to perfection. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for an excellent real estate broker. I could not have been in better hands.


Very knowledgeable, attentive, took the time to explain the process of buying a new home. Would definitely recommend using Shaun Livernois with Chris Edwards in your home purchase.


Our house buying process could not have been any smoother. We were able to get under contract on the first house we made an offer on and the whole process beginning to end was handled very professionally and with great detail.


As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions. Shaun was so knowledgeable and responsive, he made this such an easy process. I will always recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!


Moving from Florida to North Carolina alone was challenging but thanks to Shaun finding our dream home was as painless as I could have imagined. He would go out of his way to, not just show me homes, but educate me on the differences in homes from FL vs NC. I couldn't have made the choice I did without his help and I will always be grateful. If your goal is to not just find your dream home but to also feel confident in your choice, Shaun and team are where you want to look. Thanks again Shaun!!


Shaun made purchasing a home for a first time homebuyer an enjoyable and easy experience. Shaun took note of my needs and created a multiple day itinerary to look at the potential homes. Shaun is flexible, understands the current market, and has wonderful interpersonal skills. My experience with Shaun was absolutely positive and I look forward to working with him again. I could not recommend him enough.


Having recently (December 23) closed on the purchase of our “dream home”, we are so thankful that we entrusted this event to Chris Edwards. At a difficult time of year and in a very competitive market, he managed to coordinate for us all aspects of the transaction from the Due Diligence to the walk-thru and closing. Since we were not able to be present a major part of the time due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Chris held up our end brilliantly and we could not be more grateful for his professionalism and perseverance. It simply could not have happened without him. Chris went well above and beyond what could have been expected of him. Now that the purchase is behind us, he continues to provide invaluable help by sharing his trusted resources to facilitate our relocation from the west coast to NC. Thanks Chris, you certainly have earned this 5-star review, and then some.


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!

Sincerely,
Daniel Weeks


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.
