You are "True Professionals" and I have enjoyed working with and learning from you. There are two reasons why we picked your team versus the others.
1. Your team presented in a very professional, positive yet fact-based manor
2. The Sotheby’s brand.
We do not do business with just anyone as our brand is important to us and we felt it made a statement about the quality of the property being offered. Some of your competition fell short in this category either individually or as a firm. They may sell a lot of real estate but character, professionalism, cultural awareness, brand and integrity matter.
From our first meeting Jennifer and Gordon, presented themselves extremely professionally and provided a level of candor that was refreshing. We knew that our house gave the impression of being dated and Gordon and Jennifer were the only agents who really provided us with concrete suggestions on how to freshen up the house and maximize our return.
Gordon went to great lengths to make the updating as painless as possible for us. We have never experienced agents who have gone that extra mile for their clients, but they did. They brought in a stager who, working with Jennifer really helped to show off the best features of the house. The photography was well done, and the video was exceptional. All of this was incredibly important to reaching our end result.
The sale didn’t proceed as planned, as we only had one low-ball offer as of our original offer date, but Gordon and Jennifer kept working busily, and during the next weekend’s open house, with an offer pending we received two more and achieved precisely the price we were looking for. We enjoyed a successful outcome, but more importantly we had the comfort of Jennifer and Gordon walking beside us and helping us through the entire process.
With your guidance and reassurance during our relocation we were able to find what we believe to be the perfect home in the greatest neighbourhood despite our long-distance requests and specific needs and wishes. You handled our hunt with professionalism and sophistication, while at the same time being so friendly and informal.
During the time between our purchase and possession date, you were always more than happy to accommodate our questions about the neighbourhood, schools and our home, much appreciated for a family coming into an unknown situation. Once we arrived in Toronto to take possession of our new home, we appreciated your dedication to making us feel welcome with all the extras you provided from technical questions about our house to shopping in the neighbourhood. We also appreciated your willingness to help in many ways that we feel were not part of your job description, like coming over to help with decisions on furniture placement and providing us with some popular local take out menus when we didn’t feel like cooking.
Having been in our home for only a few weeks, we are sure we’ve made the right choice under your guidance and we will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for realtor services in Toronto.
Thanks for making our relocations effortless and we look forward to keeping in touch.
I felt compelled to write you a personal note to thank you for everything you have done for me over the past handful of weeks as I maneuvered my way through the stress of selling and buying a home in record time?
I feel blessed to have met you both and am grateful that I listened to my gut when it told me to list our home with you. You went above and beyond in every possible way.
After 40 plus years in our home, we made the decision to sell.
Now came the really difficult part….find a realtor….with the integrity/marketknowledge/communication skills to inform us as to current conditions/plan a market approach/find a buyer and have the negotiating skills to close the sale.
We are pleased to tell your Company that you are the consummate real estate professions and have handled the whole transaction in a skillful and knowledgeable way…and we would strongly recommend you both to others.
From the onset, Gordon and Jen represented a combination of personal assets that were intriguing, Gordon was vibrant, dynamic, opinionated in a good way and passionate. Jennifer, on the other hand, was the wise owl that listened with compassion, insight and astute intellect. Together, you just knew you had arrived at a place that “nothing could go wrong”. Let’s face it, for most of us, our real estate is our biggest financial portfolio and the agent who represents you is like your financial planner. It is through this team that I learned the art of negotiation and solid real estate. Not every investment is a good one unless you take the counsel of a sage team. Gordon and Jen not only created my net worth but led me to decisions that were just right for our family.
They love to see you succeed. It is that simple. It is with the utmost confidence that I can say I would never have found the real estate I have without this amazing team. They transcend service, they are your real estate advisor…your coach….When you get too excited about a bad deal, you can trust Gordon to bust your bubble and Jen to ease the transition to the next deal that is better suited to your long term needs.
Life is unpredictable enough; they take the guess work out of it.
We were introduced to the Stanley/Nye team by a highly reputed builder in Lawrence Park. We appointed them as agents for two new homes we are constructing in North Toronto. Gordon’s knowledge and expertise in engineering, construction have been invaluable as has Jennifer’s impeccable attention to detail and quick response to client needs.
We also happened to be thinking about a bigger home in Lawrence Park which would provide the potential for a large island kitchen, a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, an inground pool and south exposure. Gordon and Jennifer found the perfect property for us and guided us to a successful purchase in a multiple offer situation.
In addition to these exceptional services, Gordon provided additional assistance regarding best financing options and movers. What more can we say!
I kid you not, I have been active in real estate one way or another for 40 years (even as an agent) and this is, by a long stretch, the best feature sheet I have ever seen, bar none!
The photos are fabulous, and I think the floor plans really convey the spaciousness of the home. With the virtual tour, this feature sheet, great photos and floor plans, you’ve now loaded the gun with your finest bullets. Well done.
The fact that you were able to find us a property that was not yet on the market in such a short period of time is a testament to your knowledge, professionalism, networking and relationship skills. You were both such a pleasure to deal with and made the process both quick and fun! This is “First Class Service” and we will not hesitate in recommending you!
Not only were they helpful and honest but also added a lot of value in the transaction. They helped us to work with the sellers to deal with a buried oil tank and were personally involved in moving this process along as well as finding an architect to work with us on changes and a designer to work with in getting our current home ready for sale. In summary Gordon and Jennifer are “A Cut Above"
