When Buying

Whether you're buying your first home or tenth investment property, the financial commitment on your part is huge, and I take it very seriously. Being a life-long resident of Toronto and having 17 years' experience in real estate has given me extensive knowledge to help you purchase in the most desirable neighbourhoods. Here are some of the services I offer when I act as your buyer's agent:


Buyer's Package 
You will receive a buyer's package that will give you all of the information, 
steps and costs you'll need to know about when purchasing a home. 
This handy package is invaluable for first-time buyers and also acts as a great 
?reference and reminder process for people who have already been through purchasing property. 



Daily Property Searches and Inspections
I view dozens of properties per week and know where all of the best deals are located. Once we determine what you're looking for and where you want to live, I conduct daily searches and inspections of all the properties that come on the market in your price range.


Education of Desired Neighbourhoods
I'll give you insight on what the neighbourhoods you're interested in have to offer. I'll give you the information on schools, parks, specialty shops, access to public transportation and other amenities. When you decide to submit an offer to purchase, you will receive a list of comparable sold properties in the area to help determine the price you want to pay.

Fill out my "Dream Home Finder" form and I will assist you in finding your desired home.

Strategic Alliances with Top Agents
Not only do I network with the 130 sales representatives in my company, but I'm in constant contact with the top agents across the city in all companies. This gives you the inside track on the best and hottest properties to hit the market.

Negotiation
I will put my more than a dozen years in real estate to get you the best deal and the most desirable terms on the home you purchase. If we end up in a multiple offer situation, I'll guide you with the best strategies to win the bidding war.

Mortgage Specialists
Before you start looking at houses, I recommend that you get pre-qualified by a lending institution so you'll know exactly what you'll be able to afford. During my real estate career, I have met many mortgage brokers and representatives, but I can confidently recommend any one of the following three people. They're all reliable, trustworthy, work for reputable financial institutions, and have never let me down. They'll make sure you get the most competitive interest rate along with the terms and conditions of a mortgage that will suit your needs.

Lawyers
I probably know as many lawyers as you do real estate agents. If required, I can supply you with the names of solicitors to close your real estate transaction.

Home Inspectors
I recommend you receive a professional home inspection on the property you will be purchasing. There are many reputable individuals and companies that specialize in this field. I'll be happy to give you the names of a few of them so you can check out their record and costs.
