Don Cholak helped us
Recent: British Columbia, Canada
From the moment I signed up with him, I knew I was in good hands with Don. He knows the local market very well and seems to know absolutely everyone in the industry. He did his homework and knew exactly where my place stood with respect to other offerings in a very tight market. He knew how to keep my place fresh in the market through a combination of open-house timing, showcasing it in the local paper, making pricing adjustments, etc. He gave lots of suggestions that helped the place show well, and he recommended several key things (e.g. getting a home inspection done in advance for prospective buyers to review) that made a big difference in the final selling price and the time it took me to sell.
One of the best things about him is that Don is a very effective and direct communicator--I always knew where we were at and what was happening with the place. He was also in constant communication with other agents and prospective buyers to gauge their interest, update them on new information, etc.
Selling a vacant fixer-upper in a tough provincial economy during a global pandemic wasn't too much for Don to handle. I greatly appreciated his professionalism and helpful advice that got my place sold in a timely fashion and for a decent price during these uncertain times.
