Expert Advice

Client Dedication

We start by understanding your position, budget, must-haves and preferences. Then we'll present you with options that meet your criteria and visit the ones you like. 

When the time comes, we'll craft and submit an offer and if necessary, negotiate on your behalf with the goal of getting to 'sold' under the best possible circumstances for you. From there, we can support you with information and professional recommendations on everything from relocation to financing to renovations. 

Here for you 

Whether your search takes a week or several months, you will never feel rushed and can count on us for guidance and advice on everything from neighbourhoods and schools to contractor recommendations. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the process if I want to work with you?
A: The first step is to click here to request a complimentary consultation (by phone or video call) where we'll discuss your goals and situation and answer any questions you may have about working together. If you decide to proceed from there, you will be asked to sign a standard Buyer Representation Agreement - and we will get to work identifying and visiting properties that meet your criteria! 

Q: How long does the buying process take? 
A: That depends on many things including what you're looking for, your budget, and the state of the market. When we meet for you consultation we can provide you with a best guess based on the market and what you're looking for. 

Q: Is there anything I should do to prepare for the buying process?
A: One of the most important first steps is getting clear on your financial picture and how much you can - and want - to spend on a home. We recommend speaking to your bank or a mortgage broker and obtaining a pre-approval, so you know exactly where you stand. Click here for a handy mortgage calculator that may be helpful. 

Of course, it's also helpful to have an idea of where you want to land, and the things that are important to you in a home (number of bedrooms, washrooms, special features, etc.) so that we can target our search accordingly. 

Q: How Much does it cost to work you as a buyer?
A: The great thing about being a buyer is that the professional fee is usually paid by the Seller in most cases. 

Q: What extra costs should I factor into a home purchase? 
A: You should plan to set aside 1.5% for closing cost, which include lawyer's fees, moving, land transfer tax (here's a calculator to help you predict how much that will be), etc. 

Q: I need to buy and sell - what should I do first?
A: This depends on a couple of factors including the state of the market and whether you can afford to carry two homes if the current home isn't sold before the new one closes. Again we'll discuss your options - and the pros and cons - when we meet.
