Default Real Estate Agent

I will be listing my townhouse and am starting my search for an agent ... can anyone recommend someone that provides great service and has a reasonable commission rate?

We have used Sam McDadi many times. He has a big organized selling machine and negotiates commissions

We've used Tamer Fahmi of Hearth and Home Realty in Burlington (905-333-5000). He was super friendly, personable, and really went the extra mile for us. I would definitely use him again.

Has anyone out there used private real estate ? I am thinking it may be worth trying if it can save us the 5% commission. I would love to hear from anyone who has used it.

Default Private Real Estate

My brother used private real estate in Winnipeg a few summers ago, before the recession. The market was hot and his house sat for weeks. Agents would bring people through his house, and then he would not see them again. Reason being the agent would show his house, and then show the house that they were selling.

When my brother gave up and listed with an agent his house went in less than 2 weeks, and the comission was regained in the asking price of the house.

Hi Lynn, we used private real estate.com in the fall we bought the standar package (675.00) we had two open houses and sold within 13 days on the market. We saved a minimum of 14,000 thousand, and our closing! Pm me if you would like more info. Cheers!

Thanks Gunby !! Wow 13 days - that is amazing !!! You convinced me and we for sure are going to give it a try. It's worth the extra time & effort to save that sum of money !

As a Mortgage Specialist I work with many different Real Estate Agents in Burlington and Oakville. I am currently working with about 58 agents in Burlington. There are many that I would recommend that know the market well and are popular with Burlington residence.

Sinead Madden, Royal LePage
Jeff Robson, ReMax Garden City
Kit Ward, ReMax Escarpment
Rhonda Brierley, Michael Brierley Real Estate

If you want any further information or names, please let me know!

All the best!
