We just bought our first house, and Leif was a huge part of this. As we have learned, you rely on a series of key people throughout the process such as lawyers, bankers, insurance agents, home inspectors, but at the end of the day it is your Realtor who spends the most time with you, sweating it out on multiple Saturdays and evenings, putting offers together, negotiating with sellers and their agents, valuing the properties, and in Leif’s case even helping us determine the cost of potential renovations. Leif couldn’t have helped us more. He was professional, experienced, patient, and really easy to work with. His experience as a former contractor was especially handy, giving us his real time insights on the feasibility and cost of upgrades and renovations, as well as the overall quality of the houses we put offers on. This is especially helpful in Toronto, where in many cases there are multiple bidding situations that don’t necessarily allow much leeway when it comes to home inspections. It is obvious he is incredibly passionate about helping young couples like us find houses, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him and referring him to all of our friends who are entering the market!

I have to thank Leif for all of his expertise, professionalism and (especially) patience. I’m sure that by the time my wife and I had made a decision on a new home in Riverdale, Leif had toured us through more than 30 properties. All of this was according to our schedule. All of this was without any pressure applied whatsoever. I have bought and sold many homes over the years. But I will never consider doing so again without using Leif as our realtor. He found us a great home in a great neighbourhood at a great price. Who can ask for more than that?

We found ourselves in the unenviable position of having to sell our Toronto home before purchasing a new one for our growing family. Leif made this process as seamless and painless as possible.

Not only did he dig in and (literally) get his hands dirty prepping our house and marketing it for sale, he also connected us to the other professionals required to get the deal done.  Thanks to him, we sold our house for well over list price.  In the weeks that followed we got to know Leif pretty well as he drove us all over Toronto looking for our new home.  He made himself available on tight schedules, provided honest and educated advice on the market and respected our limits during the inevitable bidding wars.  Leif was instrumental in the purchase of our near perfect family home.

Leif came recommended to us from very good friends who we trust explicitly.  Consider this that kind of referral. You won’t find a more hands on, committed, knowledgable, and encouraging real estate agent in Toronto to guide you through this process.
