I am very pleased to have found a great realtor that is knowledgable, helpful, honest and knows exactly what i wanted. Nicholas thank you for helping me find a Condo with such a short notice and in the area i was asking for, he really worked hard and fast throughout this process. I recommend Nicholas to anyone that wants somebody honest, knows the market very well and can guide you smoothly through the process.
Nick helped and guided us through the purchase of our first home. He was always proactive, punctual, organized, and thorough - just to name a few of his many wonderful characteristics! Nick was extremely flexible with his schedule, always accommodating our limited availability for house visits. As first-time buyers, we had many questions, and Nick was ready with answers to them all (that were easy to understand!). Nick helped us with our short closing, and went out of his way to ensure all of our deposits and paperwork met the appropriate deadlines. We cannot thank Nick enough for his help in buying our first home. We are so thankful to have had him as our realtor and we would recommend Nick to anyone looking to purchase property! Thank you, Nick!
I cannot thank Nicholas enough for his unbelievable work! As a first-time home buyer, I really appreciated the time he spent familiarizing me with all aspects of the home buying process. He was professional, resourceful and infinitely patient as I asked what must have been hundreds of questions. Nicholas was incredibly knowledgeable on the different homes and neighbourhoods in the GTA, and managed my expectations while remaining unfailingly supportive throughout the process, saving me heartache and countless hours trying to decipher the market myself.
He exceeded my expectations at every turn, from his understanding of the market to his timely communication, he always went the extra mile to ensure I was fully prepared with all the information and tools necessary to ultimately make my decision. Nick found me my dream home; I am so grateful for everything he did and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. With him, you are truly in capable hands. Nicholas is the very best!
Nick was my real estate agent recently for a sale and a purchase. He was very adept at switching hats, working in my best interests regarding my sale, advising me on how to best stage my property, preparing a fantastic MLS posting, negotiating very well with the purchaser’s agent to attempt to get everything I wanted and more. Then he was very diligent to help me create a very good offer when we negotiated the purchase, and gave me very good advice throughout the negotiating / final purchase process. Then, Nick advised me and helped me a lot as the challenges arose between the signing of the agreement and the closing date of all the transactions, he went way above and beyond to work for me. I would definitely use Nick again, and strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent who is in tune with the variety of methods available whether they are ‘traditional’ or the new social media methods which are developing all the time.
Nick made organizing and executing our lease very easy and comfortable. He focuses on service and was prompt and thorough in communicating with us, which made the process that much more relaxed during the unprecedented summer of COVID. It was a pleasure working with Nick and we’d recommend him to anyone!
