Testimonial from Allison

testimonialsHaving twice worked with Mel and Marcus as my realtors, it is my pleasure to personally recommend them as a highly effective, courteous and professional real estate team. They truly go above and beyond in ensuring they do all they can to assist their clients in finding the home that best suits their needs and they provide a level of personalized service that is unparalleled in my opinion. Both properties I have listed with them were sold incredibly quickly and all their careful research resulted in getting us the perfect new home. We couldn’t have been happier with the quality of service and attention to detail they provided throughout the whole process of selling and buying. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication- we truly appreciate it!

Testimonial from Alicia and Ben

testimonialsMarcus and Melodie were originally referred to us by colleagues who were very impressed by this dynamic duo. My husband and I worked together with these two for over a year trying to find the perfect home. They were incredibly patient, knowledgable, personable and very enjoyable to work with. They put up with our difficult schedules meeting us on evenings and weekends, provided us with a very helpful online database and constantly kept us in the loop with new listings. We were very impressed by their professionalism when we listed our condo and were amazed by the photos and videos they took. We have recommended them to colleagues and friends and will continue to recommend them for their outstanding service.

Testimonial from Derek and Signey

testimonialsMy girlfriend and I both hired Marcus as our Realtor when we decided to sell our respective condos and move into a house together. The decision to hire Marcus was based primarily on the positive reviews provided by my girlfriend’s classmates. With selling 2 condos concurrently, while simultaneously looking for a new house out of town to move into, it was a stressful period. However, Marcus assisted greatly in the process by working diligently and keeping us informed on the status of our listings. He is a genuinely friendly and personable realtor who looks after the best interests of his clients.

They took the time to really understand what I was looking for, and were very patient with explaining the whole process to me. It was a relief to know I could completely depend on them to take care of the details and look out for my best interests. I would definitely recommend working with Melodie and Marcus!!

I purchased my first home with Marcus in 2009. He made the experience an enjoyable one and was able to provide the correct amount of insight that a new home owner needs. He was able to find a house that was within my budget and in my desired area of town. I would recommend Marcus to all future home buyers or sellers.

How a Home Inspection Helps You

Home inspectorWhether you’re considering buying a particular home, selling your current property – or both – a home inspection can help.

A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.

For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to be fixed.

You’ll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a particular property. That’s why most offers to purchase a home are conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)

You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.

Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry association.

In Canada:

• Canada Association of Home & Property Inspectors. (http://www.cahpi.ca)

• Professional Home and Property Inspectors of Canada. (http://www.phpic.ca)

• National Home Inspectors Certification Council. (http://www.nationalhomeinspector.org)

In the U.S.

• American Society of Home Inspectors. (http://www.ashi.org)

• National Association of Home Inspectors. (http://www.nahi.org)

• American Institute of Inspectors. (http://www.inspection.org)

It’s important to note that certification or licensing is not a requirement in many jurisdictions. So select a home inspector carefully.
