What to Expect From Your REALTOR

What to Expect From Your REALTOR®

REALTORS® help you get the most for your home and they remove stress and confusion from the process. Here are just some of the advantages.

Your REALTOR® Explains the Process

A REALTOR® will not take it for granted that you know all the ins and outs of the buying process. Instead, he or she will provide you with a detailed explanation of what to expect so you are fully informed throughout this complex decision-making process.

REALTORS® Assess Your Needs

One of the first questions a REALTOR® will ask is, ‘Why are you moving?’ A REALTOR® will also explore any time constraints you might have (perhaps imposed by the need to relocate for employment), your financial situation and any future plans.  They need a detailed picture of your wants and needs in order to serve you better.

A Plan to Find Your Dream Home

A REALTOR® will help you recognize what you’re looking for in a new home. An outdoor pool? A double-car garage? A fenced-in yard? A particular building design? What about the neighbourhood? Proximity to schools or work? A REALTOR® will compare your needs, wants and budget with what is available on the market and make recommendations that save you time and effort.

Your Agent will also accompany you to view houses and help you assess their suitability and price. As an expert on a property, a REALTOR® can provide facts on the neighbourhood, the cost of utilities, the condition of the home’s features, and so on. In other words, he or she will work with you to achieve your dream.

Access to Properties for Sale

Multiple Listing Service® or MLS® is an exclusive service accessible only through a REALTOR® and it can be a valuable home-searching tool. Through MLS®, the details of a wide variety of listed properties are made available to the REALTOR® you work with. That can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort in your pursuit for the right home.

REALTORS® are Skilled Negotiators

REALTORS® are experienced in arranging fair deals. Your Agent will assist in negotiating an offer, acting as a mediator to resolve potential conflicts between you and the seller, and draw up a legally binding agreement.

Honesty and Integrity

Most real estate professionals in Ontario are members of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and only members of OREA can call themselves REALTORS®. When you work with a REALTOR®, you can expect not only strict adherence to provincial laws, but also adherence to a Code of Ethics. And that code is very important to you because it assures you will receive the highest level of service, honesty and integrity.

Legal know-how? They know how.

A mishandled document can ruin a sale, or lead to legal action. Your REALTOR® has the experience to recognize potential problems early and the resources to help you find solutions and get the process back on track quickly.

Negotiation Skills – To keep the deal on track.

REALTORS® are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with sellers. Tempers can flare and heels can dig on. Your REALTOR® is an expert at smoothing things out.

  My slogan “Selling Toronto Since 77" represents my experience as a Full-time Toronto Resale Agent.

  But that is not the whole story….please read "The Making of Your Agent"


 

BEFORE 1977:

   By age 5, (as I recall it :) , I took a look across the St.John River from our1000 tree Apple Farm, outside of Woodstock N.B., and said “We Gotta Get To    Ontario”.
So my family of four packed up the truck, car and Sally the dog (the cattle traveled by train) and headed to a newly purchased farm just outside of Lindsay, Ontario.

   Naturally, being the only Son, I quickly grew into Family Farming Business with my Father and Grandfather as it expanded from mixed livestock, grain and large scale potato growing into producing 136,000 broiler chickens annually.   Next, a Farm Equipment Dealership was added.                                                    My Mother, our Admin. and Bookkeeper made sure I learned the importance of these functions.                                                                                                       So this is pretty much the story of my Childhood -  Hard Work and Busy learning all facets of running Businesses.

    When I turned 16 (and had my driver's license), a most important and impactful thing occured.  My father (Frank) announced  “You and I are going to buy a lot, build a house and sell it.  It is time you learned about property ! ”                                                                                                                                           Soon after, we were shopping with a Realtor, to purchase a building lot overlooking Sturgeon Lake and I was learning the basics of plans, permits, basement installation, home building, and Home Selling thru a Realtor.

 By the time I was 18 - I was feeling the draw of Toronto !   So I was happily attending Ryerson Business School in Toronto, when my Father announced -  “You and I are going to buy this waterfront farm on Sturgeon Lake and develop a subdivision !”   ( I was like - "WHAAAAAT" ???  :)                                           Soon, while going to Ryerson, I was driving to Lindsay several times a week since  “Lakeside Village”, a 34 Home, Estate Subdivision was under way.

Now That Was A Real Education !  This project took many Years of:  local and provincial government approvals; assembling investors and financing; countless engineering and builder meetings.   And we were Learning On The Fly !  (talk about a Part-time Job :)
However, it Was Very Cool to be able to do many school assignments on my own project.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
By age 21,  our highly regarded "Lakeside Village" Subdivision was completed and Sold Out - and I proceeded with my Plan to become a Toronto Realtor.

 By age 23,  I had next completed a new 2 Year, full time Seneca College Diploma Course in Toronto, that seemed like it was created - Just For Me !                   It was called “Real Property and Appraisal” and incorporated the in-depth Appraisal 1 & 2 (for those wishing to become a professional Appraiser), Real Estate Law, Property Management , Construction Management, Construction Estimating, Developing, Accounting, Marketing and Promotion, Government Property Regulations and The Planning Act.

This was the extent of my Preparation and Experience to be ready to help people with their most important Buying and Selling decisions - BEFORE becoming a Professional Toronto Real Estate Broker in 1977.

 
SINCE 1977:

My Goal has been to be the most knowledgeable, hard-working, complete Resource for my Clients..
I also spend a serious amount of time accumulating and knowing the very best of Honest, Talented, Well-priced Contractors/Tradesman/Plans & Permit Specialists/Lawyers/Surveyors/Mortgage Specialists - since personal connections in these fields are very important assets to be able to recommend to you.      (So you do not have to hire strangers from the internet or flyers anymore.)
I have designed and renovated many 
Toronto homes, and show 100's of homes and condos, every year. 
My lifelong study of the resale market, real estate investments, housing statistics, interest rates, new construction condo/loft projects, real estate law, renovation/design, condominium corporations – will hugely benefit your property decision making.                                                                                                  My Business is typically approx. 85% Residential and 15% Investment Properties/Land/Re-development Sales.

  AREAS:  I have experience in All Areas of the City of Toronto and have handled Sales and Purchasing in most parts of the entire GTA.                                      My  business has always been "Needs of the Client Based," as opposed to just knowing one small pocket.   Many of my Clients have wanted me to handle their out-of-town transactions as well.  My appraisal education and over 40 years of experience enables me to analyze pricing data in any area and know country property as well.   I have also done business in the following areas: Pickering/Ajax/Brooklyn/Whitby/Oshawa/Bowmanville;  Newmarket/Aurora/Stouffville/Uxbridge;  Mississauga/Milton;  Kawartha Lakes/Scugog Lake/Port Perry/Lindsay/Balsam Lake/Sturgeon Lake/Rice Lake/Buckhorn Lake/Omemee.

 

In Summary, I believe that when you are hiring an Agent, you deserve:

 1.)       An Agent – who is This involved, interested, dedicated and experienced in all things Property.

 
2.)       An Agent – that you can tell right away, genuinely puts your best interest above all else !  As opposed to the "just sending out junk mail and waiting for the phone to ring approach" - I have acquired my loyal diverse clientele thru "word of mouth" recommendations from one family member and friend to the next.

 3.)       An Agent – who promptly returns your calls/emails, 7 days a week.   And does Not disappear on holidays in the middle of your buying/selling.

 4.)     An Agent – who Always will dedicate the time, and has the will, determination and knowledge to “MOVE MOUNTAINS” to make you Happy & Successful in Toronto Homes, Condos, Lofts and Investments.


                  I Assure you, You Will Notice The Difference
