We worked with Ed in purchasing our first home in 2016. the peak time for bidding wars in Toronto. We really appreciated his honesty and negotiating abilities to help us buy our dream home outside of a bidding war and below the market price. We were so satisfied with his exceptional service we referred 7 friends to him who also purchased their homes through him. The collective opinion both ours and friends in buying multiple properties through Ed has been that he goes above and beyond for every client. First, he will help you scout areas. When you finally decide upon the area he will send you emails sometimes at 1 AM which is the time the properties go on the market for sale. He is very proactive and will get you in to see the place as soon as possible before the open house and will help with negotiating the best deal if you decide the home is meant for your family! Another advantage to working with Ed is that he points out both the pros and cons of buying a certain place so we felt very comfortable when we finally purchased our home. He cares about his clients and wants to make sure what you buy has resale potential and even goes as far as offering advice and resources for renovations to make sure we were making adjustments that would add value to the home. He does all of this with enthusiasm and a sense of humour. Overall Ed has made a lasting impression and we will continue to recommend him to our friends and family.
