Are area prices going up? What is the projected resale value of my condo? How can I get top dollar for my home? Is refinancing a good option for me? These are all common questions that our clients often ask us. And the answer may vary depending on circumstances. Luckily, we've got the answers.

Our approach to real estate is simple: We arm ourselves with an arsenal of information that we tackle with a no-nonsense, to-the-point approach, and we do the same for our clients. Keeping up with the latest industry news is just one facet of our business; the other is relaying this information in a relevant, polished, and timely manner to our clients. When our clients are informed about the market and have the facts required to proceed in confidence, we're assured that they're ready to embark on their real estate adventure.

Even though we believe that our clients should always be in charge, we wil never leave their side until the very end. To us, that's just good real estate.

There's nothing more frustrating than working with an agent who goes M.I.A. as soon as you sign the listing agreement or buyer representation contract. And there's certainly nothing worse in the world than the nagging feeling that you've been abandoned. We understand all these disappointments because we've been customers too. That's why, for us, customer service will always be our number one priority. When our clients are happy, we know we've done a good job.

We don't believe in pressure tactics or hidden agendas. If we strongly feel that your dream real estate investment is not all that it's cracked up to be, we'll tell you. Honesty goes a long way in life, and it also goes a long way in building lasting, mutually respectful relationships.

We strive to keep our clients well-informed and educated about their future real estate endeavours. Through our carefully designed follow up systems, we're able to keep in touch with our clients on a regular basis. And that's exactly what they deserve.

home selling  |  refined

When it comes time to sell your home, there are a multitude of things to consider that can drive even the most prepared person a little batty. Most home sellers face the pressure of pricing their home correctly so that it doesn't undersell or sit on the market for months. They will also find that spending money on the wrong renovations can lead to an insignificant increase in price. It's important to step back and look at the big picture; but it's also equally important to consider the small details that go into selling a home.

While it's nearly impossible to predict how the market will treat a home before the listing goes up, we've come up with our own proven and innovative marketing techniques to help our clients get the most out of their home. It's that competitive edge, coupled with our attention to detail, that sets our clients' listings apart from the rest. Our Talking House, customized websites, and professional photos and videos are just a few of the things we offer to our clients. We also keep home sellers up-to-date with the progress of their listing as often as we can.

It's true - every listing that we handle, we treat it like the rock star that it is.

Choices, choices, choices. We encounter them in our every day lives, but when it comes time to purchase a home, the decisions get more and more broad as they do difficult. That's where our refinement philosophy comes in.

With our Buyer Profile System, we take the guesswork of buying a home and turn it into an adventure. Our system is designed to help home buyers narrow their choices and end up with the home they truly want. We also understand that time is of the essence, so we never waste our clients' time looking at listings that have little to no relevance to their home search. The beauty of the Buyer Profile System is that it puts the buyer at the forefront of the home hunting process. Our buyers are able to parse through all available listings at their leisure and in a completely pressure-free zone.

Finding a perfect home can be a lengthy and complicated process. Lucikly, you'll always be in control.

Have you ever wondered why some listings seem to get snatched up in a matter of days, while others sit on the market for weeks?

Sure, there are many factors involved, like pricing, neighbourhood, and current economic conditions. But with all things being equal, a clear advantage is getting your listing out there; with public prominence, it is more likely that your home will sell quickly and for top market value. Not only is this probably your top priority, but it is our as well. That's why we've designed our real estate marketing around the uniqueness of your home. No two homes are ever the same, and our goal is to have our marketing material reflect that.
