"John provides good workmanship. We really appreciated the quality of his customer service: he listens, pays attention to detail and takes action.- Jessica Kwik & Nathan Fahey
As first time buyers, he walked us through the daunting task in a friendly, open manner.
We look forward to keeping in touch and working with him again."
"Dear John,- Anne (Babej) Purawec
Thank you for doing such great job in securing the estate sale of our parents’ home. Your professionalism, commitment, attention to detail and expertise were evident throughout the entire process.
You were always easily accessible -- responding quickly to emails, texts, phone calls or requests for meetings to answer questions or provide regular updates on visits. We appreciated your guidance and your knowledge of what was going on in the market and in particular, your honesty and high level of integrity. Many times you went above and beyond what we expected -- from picking up a sink for us to cleaning up odd and ends to ensure the house was in top showing condition.
But what really got the job done was your strategy and marketing plan to sell my parents’ home. It included arranging for a professional photographer, reputable and comprehensive inspection report, a detailed layout, sell sheets, creating a website for the house with a virtual tour, advertising in local newspapers which brought in the needed traffic throughout the home. In the end, it took a short 18 days to sell the home and you made sure we got more than we expected in this still sluggish, slowly rebounding economy.
We will not hesitate to recommend your services to our friends and family. Thank you for making this potentially difficult situation a positive one for all of us.

""Dear John,- Sylvie Couture
I would like to thank you for making yourself available to me 24/7 to answer any of my questions, (even while you were on vacation.) You have gone above and beyond the call of duty in the search of the perfect house for my daughter and me.
I truly admire your consistent professionalism, your commitment and determination to find us the perfect home. I would be very happy to recommend you to any of my friends who might be looking for a Realtor.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I'm home and you got me there!
""John's catch phrase is "Expect The Best". And without a doubt my wife and I can honestly say that having John as our agent-we got the best. My wife and I started looking for a new house over a year ago and in that time of searching we looked at more than our fair share of houses and throughout the entire year of searching John was with us every step of the way listening to our concerns/wants and needs and never once showing any annoyance with us that we were taking so long to find a house let alone put an offer on a house. John was professional at all times even in so far as bringing "munchies" along on the days that either my wife or I would be viewing houses after work and not being able to make it home for dinner.- Paul and Liijanna Kushnirenko
John was always on his game when it came to knowing what we wanted in a home and would never waste our time trying to show us a house that was either out of our price range or not compatible with our needs. Once we had finally found the house we wanted to buy, John was there- masterfully helping negotiate the purchase price for us so that we were able to get our new home for below asking. When does that ever happen in the Toronto housing market?
On the flipside, when it came to selling our house I can honestly say John went well beyond our expectations of what an agent would or should do. He helped us find the perfect person to stage our house and then helped out with the de-cluttering of our house by rolling up his sleeves and helping move things out. He helped spruce up the property by getting his hands dirty- literally. By cleaning up our flower beds and planting new plants. And when it came time to take offers on our house John was again professional and helped guide us through the process and made sure that we got every penny that we could. And as such we were able to sell our house for well over asking.
So you do not need to Expect The Best from John - you honestly and truly do GET THE BEST from John.
