What our clients have to say

What to expect
We contemplated a condo, but really had our hearts set on a house. I like cutting the grass, and wanted to play catch with my son in a backyard. Thanks to Jeff, Mark, Paul the patriarch and Norah the matriarch, houses were visited, numbers crunched, and our offer was accepted. Our home search was actually fun. Now we can’t wait for our backyard snow to melt: let lawnmowing and baseball seasons begin!

This is the second time we’ve worked with Mark and the rest of The Oulahen Team and we couldn’t recommend them more! Having a newborn child, we thought the process would be stressful but Mark was always accommodating and patient. The Oulahens were always available to answer our questions and address our concerns in a quick and professional manner. We felt safe and looked after throughout the process of selling our home with their sound advice and great knowledge of the market. Any time you visit their office you’re always met with a smile and made to feel like a part of the team. You can’t go wrong with the Oulahens.

I have just completed both a sale and a purchase with the Oulahen Team. I can honestly say that this is the most incredible customer service experience I have ever had. From the very first contact, there was not an email or phone call that was not quickly answered by one of the members of the team. My house sold for a good amount over asking and well above what anything similar in my neighbourhood has sold for. Their advice on which upgrades to the house prior to the sale would net me the best results was spot on. I was a picky purchaser and the Oulahens moved heaven and earth to find for me what I wanted. When I finally did find what I wanted they got if for me at a fair price. The Oulahens are a wonderful team of realtors with integrity, vast knowledge and experience. Each member of the team has their own expertise and they make it work together to your advantage. They both made and saved me money. All accolades they have received are 110% deserved. I grew to really like and respect Paul, Norah, Jeff and Mark. These are wonderful people and my advice to you if you are working with this family is TRUST THEIR ADVICE. The process of selling and buying (in my case on my own) is stressful enough. Let them handle it. You will not be sorry.

Condo Insurance Explained

We once had a client who had a washer/dryer malfunction that caused damage to their unit and 14 units below them. Because they did not have insurance and it was an issue in their unit, it was their responsibility to cover the cost of these damages. Your condominium corporation has insurance, but only for the building’s common elements. Most would strongly suggest insurance for your individual unit. Most condo insurance policies cover: Your personal liability for property damage or bodily damage you unintentionally cause to others (If a fire or flood starts in your unit) Your personal property (Appliances, furniture, clothing, electronics, and items in your locker) Additional living expenses in the event you are relocated during the condo’s restoration […]

Credit Matters!

Let’s talk credit as it relates to real estate. A good credit score complimented with proven income are the main imputes required for a mortgage approval. It’s never too late to check, maintain and improve your score. Start at either of Canada’s main reporting agencies Equifax or Transunion. Long story short, a score of 700 basically implies you’re in the clear, and have maintained your credit facilities well enough for most lenders to be satisfied. Under 680 might imply more hurdles for you to jump through to satisfy a lender. Remember, your rating is based on many factors being reported and a statistical calculation of all those factors. So be proactive and aggressive, as a banking error might miss a payment or a […]

Downsizing to a Condo – The Lifestyle Transition

Living in a house is quite different from living in a condo. There are things to consider when making the transition from a house to a condo, including costs, living space and lifestyle. As the market continues to rise, houses may be less affordable and downsizing to a condo is becoming a popular option. Condo Living If you want to downsize from your family home, a condo is a more affordable option. The average cost of a condo in Toronto in 2018 was $552,423, compared to the average cost of a house, which was $1,009,535.
