AN EXPLANATION OF THE PROCESS
I never take it for granted that you know all the ins and outs of the buying/ selling process. My goal is to guide you through the process, with a full explanation of what to expect so you’re not faced with any surprises along the way.
AN ASSESSMENT OF YOUR NEEDS
One of the first questions I as my clients is “Why are you moving?” I will also explore any time constraints you might have (perhaps imposed by the need to relocate for employment), your financial situation and any future plans.
A PLAN TO FIND YOUR DREAM HOME
I will help you identify what you want in your new residence. A pool? A garage? An extra room? A particular building design? What about the neighbourhood? Proximity to schools or work? Gillian will compare your needs, wants and budget with what is available on the market and make recommendations that save you time and effort.I will accompany you as you view houses and help you assess their suitability and price.
ACCESS TO PROPERTIES FOR SALE
Multiple Listing Service® or MLS® is an exclusive service accessible only through a REALTOR® and it can be a valuable tool. Through MLS®, the details of a wide variety of listed properties are made available to the REALTOR® you work with. That can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort in your hunt for the right home.
KNOWLEDGE OF FINANCING OPTIONS
I have knowledge of the financing choices and help connect clients to mortgage brokers that will help them realize their dream of home ownership.
A SKILLED NEGOTIATOR
I am experienced in arranging fair deals. I will assist you in negotiating an offer; acting as a mediator to head off potential conflicts between you and the seller, and draw up a legally binding agreement.
HONESTY AND INTEGRITY
I am an active a member of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and only members of OREA can call themselves REALTORS®When you work with me, you can expect not only strict adherence to provincial laws, but also adherence to a Code of Ethics. And that code is very important to you because it assures you will receive the highest level of service, honesty and integrity.
HIGHEST PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS
Before receiving her real estate license, I successfully completed an extensive course of study developed by OREA on behalf of the Real Estate Council Ontario. In addition, all licensees must continue to attend courses throughout their careers in order to maintain their license.
