We've worked with Gemma and Chris for a couple of sales and a purchase and they're just great to work with. Never wasted any time to get the job done quick and efficiently. Would highly recommend to anyone needing to sell or buy a home.

Gemma and Chris Ackerman helped us sell our apartment. We put it on the market after the first Covid wave. Gemma was a friendly, professional, and experienced face who helped us navigate the real estate sales process. Having never sold a home before, we were new to the situation, and Gemma and Chris were there to answer our questions no matter what time of the day. She worked quickly with us to set up viewings and open houses, and although it took longer to sell our home than they had first communicated, we ended up walking away with a price we were happy with. She also very much stuck to COVID protocols, ensuring that we were rest assured that our concerns about safety were addressed and followed.
Not only selling our old place, but she helped us get our dream townhouse when the market was heating up saving us from having to deal with competing offers and helping us come under the sellers asking price. She communicated with us well and was organized and knowledgeable throughout our buying process too.
She also went above and beyond a couple of times to help us out during our sale, by taking care of our cats (even doing the cat litter!) while we were away. Thank you Gemma and Chris for your great services.
Chris Ackerman PREC*, Thank you for your timely guidance and expertise in our home buying/selling journey. We couldn't have done it without you and your team. Most of all, thank you for helping us find the home of our dreams. We are forever grateful and excited. We will refer you to family, friends, and others who need real estate assistance in the future. Thank you again for all your hard work. It is more than appreciated! We look forward to selling our next property with you and your team in the near future.
Chris and The Ackerman Team were excellent to work with. Our home sale was a testament to their diligence. They made it happen and were relentless in their efforts to get our home sold! They are very personable and knowledgeable and they made buying our new home a breeze. I would recommend this team to anyone looking for a realtor
Chris and The Ackerman Team worked so hard for us, finding us properties in our price range and in the location we wanted. It is evident that they take great pride in what they do and that they were both professional and a pleasure to work with. Even when our schedule was a challenge, they went out of their way to work things out for us. When anyone asks what realtor we went with, my wife and I are quick to tell people what a great experience we had working with Chris an The Ackerman Team.
We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to each and every one of you… The sale of our previous properties and the purchase of our new home has been an amazing experience. You guys were a dream to work with and I would repeat every step over and over again… We are in our forever home and we truly are in love… Our next purchase will, without a doubt, be with you all as well as referrals to any of our friends or colleagues looking to buy or sell.
We could not have asked for a better experience. We decided quite suddenly to put an offer on a new house the week before we were leaving for vacation for 17 days. And that seemed like a perfect time to list our house – showings with no disruption for us, no dog around, no guinea pig around … perfect. Although the state of our house did not agree.
We met with Chris on the weekend before we left. He recommended a home stager to us to help us get our house ready. She met with me on Tuesday, we left for vacation Friday, the stagers worked their magic on the Sunday and Monday, pictures were taken on Tuesday, listing went active on Wednesday and we had three offers on Thursday. Chris took care of everything for us and made it possible for us to get this done while on vacation. I am so thankful and would recommend Chris to anyone.
Kelita is amazing! She is very kind, extremely professional and detail-oriented. She is very attentive to individual needs and delivers high-calibre quality service. I highly, highly recommend Kelita Klein for the sale of your home!
I contacted Chris at a time when I was looking to get back into home ownership after a year-long hiatus. I had a long and very specific list of needs and the spring market was just starting to get full-on crazy. Even though I’ve purchased several homes in the past, Chris took the time and walked me through a lot of the details that nobody in the past had bothered with.
To make a long story short, we ended up closing on a home that I adore, is ideally located, and met every single one of my requirements. We even managed to negotiate a very favourable price in what was a highly aggressive seller’s market. It’s certainly fair to say that without Chris’ support and expertise it could easily have fallen through.
At every step of the way, I found Chris to be professional, courteous, highly responsive, and extremely capable. His helpful attitude doesn’t end on closing day – for example, his extended network of professionals is a huge benefit, and he’s referred me to several high-quality tradespeople since.
We met Chris at an Open House showing where he was the seller’s Realtor. We were immediately impressed by his high level of professionalism and knowledge. He showed genuine interest in our priorities and gave us great information about the property. He was honest about the level of renovation the property needed. I even cross-referenced the estimate he provided for finishing the basement and it was bang on. The fact that he was a knowledgeable builder only helped his case and I was also impressed by his negotiation ability. We did not end buying that property but decided to hire Chris Ackerman as our Realtor the next day. He made me feel like a winner! Chris was realistic about our chances and the lowest offer we could ask for. Our offer was accepted at $20,000 below asking price in a seller’s market!
The great work ethics and follow up that you showed, and also your excellent knowledge of construction and renovation made for a most positive experience. We were very satisfied with your service and communication. Your honesty, work ethic, and professionalism would cause us to refer you to our friends and family.
I found Chris by googling Realtors in Port Coquitlam after dealing with a listing realtor that was under-enthused from a different company. Keller Williams connected me to Chris and he was quick to set up a couple showings and his enthusiasm and knowledge of the Port Coquitlam area was extensive. Chris made sure Bonnie was available if he wasn’t. He listened to what we were looking for and understood the urgency. He found us the perfect unit for our grand-daughter and from the first phone call until she moved in was approx 6 weeks. He assisted us with finding a lawyer and he even helped carry a futon in. We really appreciated his assistance and follow up.

Let me say these people are a power team. When they walk in, there is a presence about them. Chris and his team are very driven agents. If you listen to what they say, you WILL SELL your home. Their marketing skills are beyond anything I could imagine . . . We had multiple offers and our house sold in 5 days! Listing with the Ackerman Team will only give you one thing: a SOLD SIGN in your yard!

After trying to sell our house with a previous agent for 6 months, we hired Chris Ackerman. With the expert advice and guidance, we sold our home within two weeks of listing with them! They are hard-working, honest and positive professionals and are a delight to work with. We would recommend them without reservation.
We chose the Ackerman Team to be our agents through both the sale of our previous home as well as for the purchase of our new home. They handled every detail and made the process so much smoother than we had anticipated it being! From our first meeting to list with them until our final closing, they kept guiding us through each step, being careful to listen to our ideas and educating of us along the way. Their knowledge of the market helped us make informed decisions that led to a timely sale and an above asking sale price on our home! Because of that, we had a higher than expected amount to spend on our new home, which made shopping for it even more fun! We love our new home, it’s perfect for our family and we strongly recommend the Ackerman Team!
