Chris Abbott brings an engaging personality, a tireless work ethic and a dynamic professional background with a passion for marketing and two decades of successful real estate experience and expertise to his role as an Advisor with Engel & Volkers. Chris is extremely proud to represent a premier international brand.

As a strategic negotiator, Chris’ concierge-level of service and outstanding results helped to establish him as a consistent top producer in the Toronto-area market and he has continued to broaden his skill set by regularly attending and speaking at real estate conferences and professional development courses throughout North America in addition to collaborating with his vast network of leading Realtors throughout Canada. A direct and honest approach with his clients is the cornerstone for repeat and referral business and long-term partnerships, something that Chris values greatly as a reflection of his commitment to his clients.

Chris graduated from the University of Guelph with an honours Bachelor of Commerce degree in Marketing Management & Finance and was awarded the Joan Doherty Memorial Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement, community involvement and extra-curricular activities. As an athlete beginning at a young age, Chris has participated in high-level team and individual sports including football, hockey, rugby, bodybuilding and martial arts. These experiences helped to develop Chris’ strong work-ethic and provided many valuable lessons resulting from hard-fought victories and Chris brings that same competitive thinking and spirit to his real estate practice.

Following a successful, award-winning career with several Fortune 500 companies including Xerox and Adobe, where he received world-class sales training and won ‘Canadian Sales Rookie of the Year’ and multiple President’s Clubs for being a top performer, it was Chris’ passion as an active real estate investor that propelled him to pursue his Realtor licence and leave the corporate world behind for good.

After visiting Vancouver Island in the Summer of 2021 to visit a friend and then returning with his wife Tara and two children (Brayden and Harper), as a family it was hard to not consider this the perfect place to raise a young family and call it home. Living on Bear Mountain, Chris has immersed himself in school involvement, the community, amenities and the ongoing real estate development and market values of the neighbourhood and surrounding area.

In his free time, Chris loves to explore the many hiking trails, lakes and restaurants all throughout the Island as well as working out with his Son and taking his Daughter to Tae Kwon Do and gymnastics classes. He is an avid reader, loves personal development, coaching, travel, history, photography, politics and sports and a great cup of coffee for a friendly chat or the occasional cigar. Chris believes in the philosophy to ‘Give where you Live’ and will be aligning with a non-profit for children to assist and empower local-area youth.
