About Christopher Audette From Top Agent Magazine

From Featured Bio from Top Agent Magazine.
Better Homes, Better Marketing helps clients market and sell homes (and get more money). We understand that every listing and every client is different that’s why we offer a variety of services to clients. From professional real estate photography to High Def promotional videos, we can help you get your property sold! We utilize cutting edge technology that helps clients sell homes faster and attract qualified buyers using a collection of tools.

When it comes to marketing expertise in the real estate industry, Christopher Audette has plenty. “I started my career working for a sizable advertising firm, an amazing experience where I learned a ton about marketing and culture and accountability.” Chris’s fascination with the business led him to start his own internet marketing company, where he transferred the marketing system he’d been trained in at his old job.

The jump into real estate came when he was doing research for a home inspector and a friend related her experience with a real estate agent. “She’d bought a townhouse and was advised by her Realtor not to do a home inspection. I was absolutely gobsmacked that a professional would give her that kind of advice. It was kind of a catalyst for me as I realized real estate was an industry where I could distinguish myself with my marketing skills and commitment to being accountable.”

After twelve years in the business, it’s safe to say that decision has been well rewarded. With The Group at RE/MAX First, Chris has assembled a top-notch team of agents, each of whom brings an average of nine or ten years of experience to their Calgary based agency. The backbone of the business is the leads generated by their marketing website,, and on average the team closes between 150 and 250 transactions a year. By their second year as a team, they achieved Diamond status, the top awards category in RE/MAX. The yearafter, the RE/MAX First brokerage took the position as the highest production RE/MAX office in the world for closed transactions in 2019 and 2020.

“We focus on doing the right things in the right order,” Chris explains. “So diligence and research first. We’re going to make fact-based decisions, thinking about things like costs of improvement, etc. And then we really shine in the marketing itself. A lot of real estate marketing you see is cold feeling, devoid of life. But people aren’t just buying four walls with a kitchen. They’re buying a lifestyle. We emphasize the life of the community and the experiences it will afford them, the kind of people they’ll have as neighbors. We also identify the things that make each property unique and attractive.”

Asked what he loves about the business, Chris is effusive. “I love that we’ve built something that makes a difference in people’s lives. On the listing side, our marketing can increase the equity people are pulling out of their property, which helps them whether they are moving into retirement or a bigger and better home. For buyers, our agents can help them find a place that fits their wants and needs. We explore that through a ‘Why’ based approach: why are they looking for something? And how does that line up with what they say they’re looking for?”

Chris is active in his community, especially through his primary charity, the Children’s Miracle Network, for which he has been one of the top five donors in Western Canada. Time off is scarce, but when he and his mortgage broker wife Diana Dorais aren’t working they love socializing with friends or taking a quick trip to Cancun whenever they can.

As for the future, Chris and his team have just unveiled a new website,, which will answer a need in the construction world as a comprehensive search site for information on new real estate development opportunities, functioning similarly to the MLS system. Chris is also authoring a book right now called Critical Mass, which is about agent marketing.

  • Professional Real Estate Photography 
  • HD Video Tour 
  • Glossy Full Color Lifestyle Brochures

Our realtor, Chris Duffy, was helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. Chris showed he really knew the market and went above and beyond in ensuring we understood the whole process of selling our home. We had some really tight timelines to complete the sale, and Chris worked hard to make it happen. We are very happy with the price we got and both the help and encouragement Chris provided throughout the whole process. You are in good hands with The Group at RE/MAX First and Chris Duffy.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sarah Walczak. As first-time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and needed someone to walk us through the process. Sarah was there every step of the way. She is organized, punctual, knowledgeable, and personable. Sarah took the time to discuss pros and cons of each house we looked at. Her attention to detail and experience in the industry are evident. We found the perfect home and could not have done it without her help. I highly recommend Sarah especially for first-time home buyers who are feeling apprehensive about the process. Sarah is awesome!

We had the opportunity to work with Sarah Walczak when we were looking for our first home. She was very, very nice and we feel so lucky to have her by our side on this journey.
It’s our first time so we really don’t have much knowledge about real estate. We don’t even know any good mortgage lenders and inspector. But she made the process very smooth and easy for us. She gave us very good recommendations. --- READ MORE ->

Sarah Walczak was amazing throughout the sale of my Father's home. She ensured we were aware of every step in the process and was honest in regards to what we could expect regarding wait times and costs. She made the whole process more relaxed and understandable. We will be asking her to guide us through our next home sale as well.

I sold many houses in the past with different realtors from different companies - I won’t mention them on here. But those people did not compare to the amazing, talented, professional lady - May Davidson - that I used this time through your company. I was so impressed by her knowledge and by her integrity. She was always there for me helping to make the right deductions and fighting for what is right. I will do my best to give her name to anybody that needs a fantastic realtor and I hope that one day in the future to do business with her ones again. Thank you May and thank you to your company for listening to my needs on finding the best realtor when I reached out to you office and the gentleman I spoke too said: I have the best person for you. He was so right. She is the best. Thank you. Dalia Campbell

I cannot stress enough how incredibly organized, helpful, professional, and attentive May Davidson is - as a first time homebuyer, I was incredibly thankful to have been connected with her on this. Her approach to educating their clients and providing honest feedback is greatly appreciated and made the homebuying process much more fun and a lot less stressful.

Jen Johnson was our realtor's partner when we first moved to Calgary in 2011. She was really helpful during our possession process, which was my first time dealing directly with her and we dealt with her afterwards as our realtor had moved. When my ex and I split up, she was very helpful in providing house assessment info so we could divide assets, and I always appreciated her help and responsiveness. I contacted her again when I was looking for a house in 2018, though I ended up not being able to buy at the time. In 2020, when I was able to buy a house, Jen got me going straight away and took me to see things promptly (and ensured COVID safety). She was very honest about issues with the potential houses or ways they might not meet our needs, so I was comfortable that she was looking out for my interests. With the one I liked, she helped me with an offer that I was happy with, and was really good with conditions. She referred me to a great mortgage broker and a really good house inspector, and the whole process was really smooth. I so appreciate her help and support and would gladly recommend her.
