When I started looking to buy my first place, I found a specific neighbourhood that I really liked, but I didn’t have a realtor at the time. I wanted to see if I could learn a bit more about that neighbourhood, so I emailed the realtors that were on the listings from that area. Stephan was the only one who replied to me, and because of that initial conversation, I chose Stephan as my realtor.
I began actively looking for places prior to COVID-19, but didn’t have much luck against the bidding wars. The lockdowns began shortly after, and I stopped looking for places.
Fast forward 9 months, I had found a listing in the same area that I was interested when I first started looking. I hadn’t talked to Stephan since the lockdowns, but I messaged him the same day saying I’d like to look at the listing, and a couple hours later we had a walkthrough scheduled for the next day. I ended up putting an offer in the same day as the walkthrough, with the offer being accepted that night.
Stephan’s knowledge and professionalism (responsive and timely communication) played a major role in helping me avoid a bidding war and secure my first place in a tough buyers market.
Thanks again Stephan!
