I was a first-time home buyer and, right from my initial interview with Bret, I knew I wanted to work with him! He gave me more than an hour of his time upfront to provide a thorough introduction to the world of buying a home and let me know exactly what I was undertaking.
Bret has, in my opinion, the perfect mix of professionalism and expertise/experience, combined with a genuine caring and detail-oriented approach. He challenged me early on to figure out my top priorities, then during subsequent home tours, he worked with me to understand my reactions to and feelings about each new place, and supported me while I worked through my issues related to competing priorities, ultimately helping me to fine-tune my wish list. And, wouldn't you know it, Bret knew I was going to love the place I ended up buying before I even saw it!
Bret definitely goes above and beyond in his efforts to support his clients. He negotiated a reduction in price after the seller countered my offer. Moreover, knowing that I would love to get a dog in the near future, he made sure that the bylaw amendments being made to my new strata included specific provisions for owners to have one pet.
Bret also works with a great team of people, from his office to his recommended network of mortgage brokers and home inspectors. I really could not have bought my dream home without Bret's support and connections.
Thank you, Bret, your invitation to my house-warming party is forthcoming! Stay tuned :)
