Selling a home is always a stressful event – especially so when you have decided to retire and move out of the city. Finding agents who both understand your needs and can help sell your property both quickly and at a good market price becomes essential. Leslie Lyons and Jamie Sarner were highly recommended by a friend who had worked with them previously. All it took was one meeting with this golden team and I was sold. Definitely a good omen.
Leslie and Jamie were incredibly thorough in researching the value of my home as well as determining what needed to be done before I could sell. An inspection of the property was first on the checklist – and proved to be invaluable. We quickly addressed the crucial items identified by the inspector within the timelines we had established for preparing the home. Both Leslie and Jamie were there to work with the inspectors, photographers, and other trades specialists. They also provided any support that I needed along the way, whether it was through phone calls or their physical presence.
With a price set and a plan for realtor and public open houses in place, we were going to be ready to accept offers a week after the listing went public. After 19 showings in 3 days, on the 4th day, we were presented with an early offer. It’s always difficult to know if you are doing the right thing when an early offer is on the table. Leslie and Jamie were incredibly thorough in briefing me on the pros and cons on considering this type of offer. They were also successful in ensuring that the offer was the strongest that the seller could consider – and in the end, we landed a price that was 17% over asking.
I cannot recommend this team highly enough. It was not just their professionalism that carried me through this process so successfully. It was also their genuine concern for my home, myself, and my future that was prevalent throughout. Their good nature, positive outlook and great sense of humour made it all go so smoothly. In fact, it was almost sad to say goodbye so quickly…… well, almost. I also ended up with an absolutely amazing photographic portfolio of my home. What an amazing memory to walk away with.
I would not hesitate to work with them again.
