…buying a home is an exciting time in anyone’s life! Working with an experienced real estate agent like myself can make the process of finding and purchasing your property faster and easier, saving you time and money in the long run. Home-buying can be a tricky process and it pays to have someone with the right skills and experience guiding the process along to completion.

“A recent survey by the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) says 41 per cent of Ontario homeowners and 45 per cent of first-time buyers wish they had done something differently during the transaction. Top buyer regrets were not having a better grasp of the process, not seeing more houses before buying, not having a home inspection performed and not better understanding the contracts involved.”
