What Our Clients Say (客戶推薦) ...

TheTeam:  Hello Calvin, thank you wishing to provide us with your testimonial.  Could you share how you get to know Fanny and appoint her as your agent?
Calvin:  We met Fanny at her office.  She was introducing us to a development project.  She did a good job presenting the project. She was professional, detailed and able to address questions that our family had.  However, we did not go ahead with that property.  Coincidently, my brother wanted to list his home a couple of weeks later.  I introduced him to Fanny.  My brother later told me that Fanny had provided them with many advices to prepare their home for listing.  Subsequently, they sold their place for a higher price.  So when I need sell my home, I contacted Fanny.
TheTeam:  How was it working with Fanny?
Calvin:  Very smoothly.  We were busy packing and preparing for the move.  We let Fanny handle almost everything about selling the property.  It went well.
TheTeam:  When you invest in next properties or move again, would you consider appointing Fanny again?  Refer her to others?
Calvin:  In fact, I already did ask her to source a property.  She has means to get what we are looking for.  Like I said, I introduced her to my brother family.  They are currently working on another project.
TheTeam:  Calvin, we appreciate your support.  Thank you very much.
Calvin:  Thank you.

Harmonious Life @ 46 Silverado Hills Drive, Cathedraltown

(click to view album)
* SOLD * Year of Horse started with home buyers keenly searching their dream homes.  As such, 46 Silverado Hills Drive in Cathedraltown, Markham was quickly listed and sold with a price that our seller clients very pleased with.  

"It was CNY season. It was freezing. The sellers were out of the country. It didn't matter. We worked with the co-op agent. we worked with the client over phone and internet. We negotiated and negotiated... until sellers okayed.

They are happy, so are we."



Yes, we pledged to fulfill our agent duties "When You List Your Properties through Us."  It matters little whether you are in or out of the country; or whether some of us are travelling or here in GTA, we will do what it takes to get the job done.

Check out what some our clients say on our Clients' Testimonials page.
