I can enthusiastically recommend Jamie as an agent both from a seller's or a purchaser’s perspective as he has served me very well in both capacities.
I first came to know Jamie when he helped me find a house when I first came to Toronto about 10 years ago. He was excellent in a number of respects. First, he was incredibly patient and showed me many houses in many different areas of the city before I found the right house. Second, he was quick to understand my requirements and gave me very good advice along the way. I also noticed, when attending open houses on my own, that Jamie was well known, liked and respected by other agents. With his help, I looked at many houses over a period of months before I bought. There were multiple bids on the house and he proved to be an excellent negotiator and my bid was accepted.
I sold the house that I bought 10 years ago recently and after interviewing other agents I decided to list with Jamie. He provided excellent service and support with great assistance on last minute details\repairs and stagers that he works with and who did a great job. The house was listed according to plan and attracted 6 offers, selling well over asking on the offer night only 5 days after listing. I was again impressed with his professionalism on offer night in handling the offers and the entire process...I would also add that he has wonderful support from [his assistant] Margaret and so there was always a quick answer to any question that arose, large or small.
In my view, Jamie is not just a competent agent (of whom there are many) but a talented professional who has a passion for Toronto and real estate and understands the nuances of the market. I have referred him to a number of family and friends, all of whom have been very happy.
Finally, Jamie is great fun to be with! In short, I highly recommend him.
