Chris was my real estate agent for the sale of my late father’s home and both him and Valérie helped my partner and I buy land for our future home.
Chris went above and beyond to help with the sale of the home. He even went to City Hall for me! I felt taken care of and was able to fully trust him and Valérie. They were available and always patient in answering any questions or concerns I had. It was clear that their priority was what was best for us and not the “quick and easy sale”. I would not even consider going to a different agent for the next home! I’m a forever client of the Payer Family!
I have known Valerie Payer for over 15 years and when it came time to buy our new home we did not have to think twice who I would have be in charge of representing my interests. Valerie Payer from Family First Real Estate Group is very knowledgeable and work very hard for her clients interests. I found working with her a joy and felt like she was there to help us during every step of the processes. She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel very secure during what is without a doubt a very involved process. Val is a true professional in every sense of the word, and puts her client’s interests first. She recommended a great Real Estate lawyers at the Riopelle Group to consult with. She also recommended and arranged a home inspection Ed Stroz at Stroz Inspections and Consulting who is a knowledgeable and extremely thorough home inspector.
I would be very happy to give Val and her team at Family First Real Estate Group my highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell their property or buy one. Her in depth KNOW HOW and the numerous professional and personal contacts in the business, places her and her team in an enviable position from where she can take advantage of opportunities for her clients which other realtors can only dream about. This alone sets her apart from all her fellow realtors in this market.
I had Chris Payer as my realtor and from the beginning you could tell he was there to help me find something that would fit my budget, needs and tastes. In the beginning I was telling him my budget was 350k but with the knowledge he had of my finances and requirements he suggested I could go down to 300k and still get what I want even if it meant he would make less money on the deal. He brought me around to several houses just to get a better idea of my tastes, likes and dislikes and from there he worked diligently to find me something that met all my requirements. I ended up with an amazing deal on a new home that had everything I wanted and more. As a first time home buyer this was a great and very positive first experience in the real estate market all around. I have recommended him to coworkers and friends alike and will continue to do so!
We have worked with Valerie for the purchase of two separate homes so far. While still respecting our wishes, style and home preferences, Valerie provided honest feedback regarding the homes we were viewing, as if she were purchasing the home for herself and her family. For both transactions, she was hard at work to make sure that we were paying a fair price. For our first purchase, we were lucky to have her around, with the knowledge and experience that she brought to the table, we saved $20,000.00 from the asking price. To no surprise, the same result came of our second purchase, her knowledge in cost for repairs saved us $16,000.00 from the asking price. Without an agent like Valerie by our side, we would have not thought about all of the information and advice she gave us.

We felt comfortable with Chris the moment we met him. His presence of calmness and genuine interest and willingness to help us find a home for our family was evident from day one. He held true to his words and provided invaluable advice, which paved the way for a trustful relationship. We are forever grateful to have met Chris. Thank you, Chris.

J’ai acheté ma première maison avec Valérie et c’était une belle expérience. Nous avons rapidement trouvé une maison que j’aimais et ou j’ai habité pendant plusieurs années. Pour ma deuxième maison, nous voulions (mon conjoint et moi) acheter une maison à la campagne. Durant les nombreuses visites, Valérie était disponible, patiente et professionnelle. Elle nous emmenaient d’un bout à l’autre de la ville visiter des maisons. Lorsque nous avons enfin trouvé notre belle maison, Valérie a réussi à négocier un prix excellent ainsi que les conditions que nous voulions. Elle nous a aidé à trouver des inspecteurs pour le puits, l’eau, la maison etc. et nous gardais au courant de nouveaux développements. Nous sommes très contents d’avoir choisi Valérie.

Deciding to sell your home is not always an easy decision! Then the questions start – when is the best time, how to go about it and who to trust with this important transaction. We were very fortunate to have someone refer us to Family First Real Estate Group, RE/MAX CORE. We worked with a highly qualified sales representative by the name of Chris Payer. Chris was very attentive to our requests, made it simple, ensured clear & ongoing communication, and provided sound advice. His professionalism and expertise were apparent from the beginning of the initial meeting.
Our house sold in less than 48 hours at a record price compared to other houses sold on our street in the last year. Needless to say we were very pleased!
If you are thinking of selling and want to deal with a respectful Real Estate Group – call Family First Real Estate and ask for Chris Payer – you will be guaranteed to work with a professional and knowledgeable sales representative.
You will not be disappointed!

My wife and I were looking to upgrade to a bigger home in light of our growing family. Chris worked with us on a very personal basis and ensured that our future home catered to our needs. He also sold our house in a very short time period with an over-asking price offer! Chris is very knowledgeable and was always available to answer our questions and arrange showings often times with very short notice. We simply could not have done this without him.
