Home Staging Service
We help you ready your home for showing to best attract potential buyers. Staging may require de-cluttering, repairing, re-arranging existing furniture, bringing new furniture and decorating spaces to maximize attributes, minimize flaws, and define space. Statistics show staged homes sell much quicker and at higher prices as a first impression is the key factor in selling your home.
State of the Art Virtual Tour
Once ready to show, our professional photographer will prepare a thorough panoramic tour of your home to allow potential buyers to preview your home’s beauty from the comfort of their home computers. Your personalized virtual tour will accompany your listing to maximize your property’s exposure on multiple websites, allowing your listing to stand out from others on the World Wide Web. This same professional photographer will take a series of still photos to be used in creating print advertising and feature sheets.
Colorful Listing Brochures
A top quality multi-page photo brochure will be created detailing the features of your home. Multiple copies of the feature sheets will be left at your property for all prospective buyers as they come through for showings to remind them of your property once they have left and provide them with the information needed to make their purchasing decisions. These brochures allow buyers to understand the value-added features of your home.
Multiple Listing System
Once the virtual tour is complete, your property will be marketed on the Toronto Real Estate Board’s (TREB) Multiple Listing System. The TREB is the largest real estate board in North America with the largest computerized listing information network of its kind. Placing a listing on the Toronto MLS will expose your property to over 30,000 licensed real estate professionals in the area with qualified buyers.
High Impact “For Sale” Sign
According to the statistics published by the Toronto Real Estate Board, 20% of homes sell as a result of their “For Sale” sign. For this reason, you will get a professionally designed, attention-drawing sign placed on your lawn to beckon the calls of curious drive-by shoppers. All calls go directly to our team as each of our cell phone numbers are displayed clearly under each name rider. We know that real-time response is crucial for buyer inquiries and we do all we can to not leave buyers waiting for the information they require. Furthermore, our website will be displayed directly on the sign leading the buyers to immediate full details and pictures of your property.
Computer Tracked Showings and Appointments
We have a zero margin for error when tracking or booking the selling activity on your property. Every detail is entered, stored and backed up on our network computer.
Multiple Websites - 24/7 Exposure
We have tailored our marketing program to respond to the needs of consumers, as evidence by national surveys of homebuyers that state specifically that 90% of all homebuyers now use the Internet to search for homes before they buy. For this reason, we list your property on dozens of websites registered with the most powerful search engines. Your property’s features will be advertised to Internet users locally, nationally and internationally, 24 hours a day, on sites including but not limited to:
We are always leading the way when it comes to modern and state of the art marketing techniques to ensure that your property receives the maximum exposure.
We further understand that web-based social media are powerful tools for spreading information. For this reason, our team does display featured listings on www.Facebook.com and www.Twitter.com.
Newspaper Advertising Social Media

All ad response calls go directly to our team. Who better to sell your property than your listing agents?
We have an aggressive marketing campaign. We will notify your neighbours through Just Listed postcards, newsletters, and/or calls to let them know that you have listed your property. Your neighbours are an excellent referral source for potential buyers. We ask that they take the opportunity to move their friends and families into their neighbourhood.
Word of Mouth Advertising
Every week, we personally meet dozens of people with one common interest—they want to buy or sell real estate. In our 25 + years of experience, we have proven that connecting people with common interests is a valuable method of closing the deal.
To maximize exposure of your listing, we market in the powerful media of television. Our team works hard to place your property on Real Estate Television, which brings your property into homes of over 200,000 potential buyers, 24 hours a day.
Our team markets itself in various forms in the local community, including in community centers, bench advertising, board of trade publications & local directories in order to direct homebuyers to our listings of your property on the worldwide web.
