Why Buy With Us?

Buying in the Greater Toronto Area is often very competitive. With 40 years of experience, we have seen every possible scenario. We understand the importance of responsive, detailed service complemented with sage, timely advice.

We Are Responsive & Available

Real estate is all about timing. Opportunities don’t last. We equip our clients with the information and service they need when they need it so they can pounce on a good deal. Our team approach makes more agents available for your urgent requests.

Honest To A Fault

Pouncing on a good deal is key and avoiding a bad purchase is just as important. We tap the breaks and voice our honest opinions. You will hear us tell you if a property is overpriced or doesn’t match your goals. It’s important to understand both the pros and cons. Too close to train tracks/hydro line/buried gas? We may say, “Don’t buy it!”. If you insist, we will make sure you negotiate an appropriate discount.

Construction & Development Expertise

We have successfully developed, built and renovated countless projects. We have a strong understanding of the potential of land and buildings. This allows us to estimate costs and timelines for your goals and plans. We also educate you on potential buildings and developments in the neighbourhood.

Buying in GTA Requires Fresh Ideas

With today's prices, every buyer has to work within a budget to achieve their dreams. More often buyers are forced to make compromises on location, size of the home, parking, and so on. It's our job to share new fresh ideas that match your goals while minimizing concessions.

Details Matter

Whether you are buying your first property or your 10th, every detail matters. A property's legal description, right of ways, and lot size need to be double-checked. You prefer to have vacant possession right? Did you want any visits before closing? Does the condo have a special assessment? Were renovations done with a permit? Is the vacant lot across the street going to be a big building? We understand our role in keeping a keen eye on all details.

Skilled, Calm Negotiators

People say they need their Realtor to be a strong ‘negotiator’ to get a good deal. It also takes an informed buyer with confidence to be able to identify a good deal. Sometimes a ‘good deal’ that was well-negotiated is a sale above the listing price. We negotiate good deals in three steps:
> Educate our buyers with neighbourhood statistics and recent market activity so they feel confident with their offers.
> Build rapport with the other side discussing, listening, and obtaining potentially vital Intel.
> Capitalize on the information, helping you make the tough decisions while trying to minimize emotions. We present your offer to the sellers with a firm, professional tone.


Resource for Life

With multiple generations of Realtors, we want to be your resource for life. We will answer any question you have about your home, maintenance or real estate.

We have been in the real estate business for almost 40 years. Our team now includes additional team members who are an extension of our family, each bringing their own experiences, ideas, and valuable advice. All of us bring the same dedication, knowledge and passion that started The Oulahen Team to every client today. We would love to show you what our team can do for you.
