I deliver unparalleled service customized to your unique needs. I take the time to discover what matters most to you and your family and provide advice, insight and access to the properties and neighbourhoods that best match your needs.
With access to the best market reports, statistics and local intelligence, I have my fingers on the pulse of your most desired neighbourhoods and feel movements and shifts immediately and respond quickly to new property opportunities on your behalf.
Each individual home is assessed to determine if it is reasonably priced, using our proven evaluation process and extensive knowledge of current market conditions. When it is time to place an offer, I walk you through the process so that you feel confident in your offer price.
You will have access to my network or top-rated local specialists including property inspectors, mortgage brokers, lawyers, cleaning services, contractors and more.
I am constantly brokering deals in the communities I serve, so I know exactly what’s going on in terms of trends, pressures and opportunities. I use this knowledge to develop a strong bargaining position so you achieve the best possible results at the negotiating table.
Access to Exceptional Homes
You will have unmatched access to some of the most extraordinary properties in Ontario’s most desirable locations—many of which may never be available to the public through the MLS system.
HOW I FIND YOU THE RIGHT HOME
PRIORITIZE YOUR WANTS AND NEEDS
I meet with you to establish your wish list and budget, discuss current market conditions, and explain the buying process. We will sign a Buyer’s Agency Agreement, committing both you and I to the process of finding you your home.
CONDUCT YOUR HOME SEARCH
I monitor and inspect MLS listing and exclusive offerings daily and reach out to my extensive network of contacts to find properties not listed publicly.
SCHEDULE PROPERTY TOURS
I prepare a market analysis and schedule showings for properties that match your wants and needs.
GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE OFFER PROCESS
I guide you through the offer process and together we establish the right price, expectations and limits.
ARRANGE HOME INSPECTIONS
Organize and attend home inspections, if required.
NEGOTIATE THE OFFER

I provide financing referrals, discuss related costs and help your transaction close smoothly.
6 STEPS TO FINDING THE RIGHT HOME – the buying process
1 Understand Agency Relationships
Buying a home is a collaborative effort. Each member involved in the process plays an important role. I will help explain what everyone’s role is
2 Prioritize Your Wants and Needs
Establish your wish list and define your budget
3 Get a Mortgage Pre-Approval
This will help to set some parameters. Having a pre-approved mortgage will give you the confidence of knowing exactly what you can spend on a home and the down payment you can offer, before you start looking. You will also be protected against interest rate increases for a defined period of time while you look for your new home
4 The Hunt
Start to search for your new home together. I will make it easy to keep track of what you see, in such a way that you can give candid feedback and find what’s right for you
5 Make An Offer
You’ve found the perfect home. Now it is time to lean on me and my knowledge, expertise and negotiation skills to help you get it for a price you want – all while ensuring you do not over pay

I will ensure that your transaction closes smoothly. This includes working with your legal counsel
