    MARKET UPDATE

    DECEMBER SELLER SUCCESS STORIES

    SOLD while others sat...

    303 - 249 Major Mackenzie Dr E., Richmond Hill

    This lovely 2 bedroom plus Flex Room (den, office, or even 3rd bedroom) is the best value in Richmond Hill. With over 950 sf of sunny, spacious living, we're not surprised that this condo sold while other area listings just sat!

    Our clients were thrilled by the transformation that professional staging and photography brought about, as well as the speedy sale. 

    In a changing market, it's good to know that things like service, professionalism and experience create positive sale experiences for our clients. 

    SOLD Over Asking in 1 Week!

    8 Beech St., Markham Village

    Can you imagine anything more stressful than listing your home for sale during the holidays? My lovely (and intrepid) clients knew there was a time crunch to get this gorgeous home prepared, presented and promoted before the holiday season curtailed market activity.

    We were able to support their efforts with our cracker-jack team, and leverage the low listing inventory to achieve a sale price that exceeded their expectations.

    Within two weeks they were listed and sold firm (in multiple offers!) and able to relax for the remainder of their family time. Can you say, "Win/win"? We love that!

    Chic Boutique Condo gets 30+ Showings

    50 Lombard St. #1801, Toronto

    This warm, wonderful condo was expertly prepared and presented to a wide variety of media platforms with more than 1200 views online! A steady stream of visitors to the property defied the headlines, and we soon had the right buyer, at the right price, and with the right terms.

    My lovely clients were overjoyed to start their new life a "little North, a little nicer." ;-)
