What our clients have to say

What to expect
I just wanted to send you a note about how happy we are that we got the opportunity to work with “Team Oulahen” on our recent buy and sell. We started down this road almost 1 and 1/2 years ago after being introduced to you folks by John. As I am sure you recall Bonnie and I had no idea where we wanted to live, what we wanted to live in, or even if we wanted to move. Talk about a realtor challenge. The patience that you showed in guiding us around and through the alternatives was definitely “above and beyond the call”. We appreciated your efforts and also the efforts of Paul, Norah and Jeff as well as the others that supported us during this time. We also were extremely surprised and pleased with the continued support after the transactions were completed. Again we see this as “above and beyond”. Quite frankly, we have no idea why anyone would want to enter into any real estate transaction with another realtor. We would be more than happy to offer ourselves as a reference at any point in the future. Again many thanks.

Jeff showed great patience, diligence and tenacity through a long challenging search in helping me and my wife finally find the house that we would ultimately call home.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our transition from a condo to house a smooth one even with all the bumps in the road that we encountered to get there. From not knowing what our “must haves” were to then dealing with a difficult seller and then getting over the nervousness of selling our condo, Jeff and his team were there to guide us through every process. The advice we were given to prepare our condo for sale including the pricing was bang on because we sold our condo after just 1 DOM! A clever clause in our home purchase documents allowed us to be flexible with closing dates and we were bought, sold and moved within a few weeks! The Oulahens’ knowledge of the market, neighbourhoods and investment opportunities were far beyond any of our expectations and helped make our decisions easier. We love our new home and our son loves his new green room!

Condo Liens – Avoid Them At All Costs!

A client of ours, and current condo owner, had required work done for their unit, performed by the condo corp. They saw a $2,600 total charge for a $600 unpaid fee relating to this work.

The condo’s property manager and board members were left with the only option of a placing a lien on the property, as permitted by the Condominium Act, 1998.

Knob and Tube Wiring

Knob & Tube wiring pops up during a real estate transaction. It occurs when a buyer discovers it during a home inspection, or a responsible seller discloses it.   What is it? Pictured above is the way houses were most commonly wired between 1880s and 1920s. Individual wires are suspended from white ceramic knobs and go through ceramic tubes where passing through joists. If a home was built in the 1930s or earlier, it was likely wired with Knob and Tube. Knob & Tube is actually still an approved and safe form of wiring by the ESA (Electrical Safety Authority).
