We can’t say enough about the Oulahen Team approach to buying and selling real estate. The family-run company operated like a well oiled machine to guide us through the process of finding a new place to live and did it’s very best to make it as pleasant an experience as is possible. The patience and cheerfulness of everyone involved (especially Jeff, who was our main shepherd through all the intricacies and legal wrangling) was the hallmark of the positive outcome we experienced. They went above and beyond in providing solutions, service providers and contacts for every situation that arose throughout the successful sale and eventual purchase of our new place. Jeff turned out to be a valuable resource and very […]
Mark and the whole Oulahen team are absolutely great! Mark handled both the sale and purchase of a condo for me and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He and his team helped me through every step of the process and they were always professional, patient, and responsive. The Oulahen team makes buying and selling as simple and painless as it can possibly be by handling many aspects of the transactions. Although I hope not to be moving again for a long time, I would certainly call Mark immediately if I was in the market for a real estate agent.
Mark and his team helped me with the sale of my condo. I was very impressed with the personalized service that was provided. Mark was very knowledgable, and made the process seamless. His team was quick to respond to all of my questions, and to send me any information that I needed. The fact that Mark got my unit sold for 100% of the asking price after just 2 days on the market was a bonus! I will definitely use The Oulahen Team again for future real estate needs.
The Oulahen team was professional and helpful from the first day I called them. They managed to complete the sale, including payment, in less than a month while getting me the best price per square foot ever for my building. I highly recommend them to anyone who is buying or selling a property.
We have known and worked with Paul and Norah for almost 20 years conducting and creating a range of real estate projects – from buying and selling our home to developing and building investments. Their honest, intelligent and practical approach to real estate is fundamental to understanding the needs in each unique situation and providing us with the right advice. And now we have the whole team in behind us. They work brilliantly with their sons, Jeff and Mark, who bring their own special insights to the project. We have never considered working with anyone but Paul and Norah – who are now helping our parents make the unprecedented step from their family home to condo living. The Oulahens continue […]
I wanted to let you know again how happy and thrilled I am with the result you and your team achieved. The service and support that all of you provided surpassed all expectations. And the results achieved speak for themselves!!! You should be very proud of the team you have built and I can only imagine how satisfying it must be to work so closely with Jeff, Mark and, of course, Norah.
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 wanted to let you know again how happy and thrilled I am with the result you and your team achieved. The service and support that all of you provided surpassed all expectations. And the results achieved speak for themselves! You should be very proud of the team you have built and I can only imagine how satisfying it must be to work so closely with Jeff, Mark and, of course, Norah. I very much appreciated the advice and guidance that the entire team provided throughout, especially Mark’s efforts.
To Mark and all the amazing people on Team Oulahen! Words really can’t express how happy and thankful we are for all the help and support from you and your team while we were on the real estate roller coaster this year. We would never have sold the condo or found our dream home without all of your dedication and hard work and ability to explain the craziness that is the Toronto real estate market to us newbies. Also the ability to tell listing agents that their sellers are out to lunch when they ask for $100K+ over the list price on a sign back. Honestly guys, from the bottom of our hearts – thank you so much!
I am really happy it all worked out. It was a pleasure working with you too. You made the process fun and I enjoyed looking at all the homes with you. It gave me a good sense of the neighbourhood and the type of home that I wanted to buy. Thanks to Mark for helping me with the sale and Jeff for taking me out to look at all those houses too. And Paul for coming with you on the Sunday.
My sincere appreciation to you and the entire Oulahen team for your hard work on behalf of my dad and our family. You are consummate professionals and I marvel at how you do what you do. Your rapport with my father was amazing and I can’t imagine anyone else having been a better fit. We all felt fully supported throughout the process. You were understanding of the emotional impact of selling the family home, but also practical and savvy. Dad was very happy with the outcome and we will never forget the look on his face when you gave him the big news. I always trusted we would be in good hands and indeed we were!
Working with The Oulahen Team was the best decision we could have made when it came down to buying and selling real estate. Their professionalism, knowledge and experience provided us with the confidence and support we needed. We appreciated their true dedication every step of the way. We have bought and sold two properties now with the Oulahens and we love how the support and advice continue even after the deals close. It wasn’t rare for multiple Oulahen team members to be sitting around with us, counselling us and helping us sort through options. They listened to us and above all were just as passionate and genuinely excited about our new home purchase as we were. Mark’s negotiation skills and […]
Just wanted to say thank you for all of your wonderful help selling our condo and purchasing our new home. You really helped us make it a smooth transition….it was a really busy year because we were working to sell our own condo and buy a house. We love our new home and are slowly making it our own. Everything worked out quite nicely. So thanks again for all your advice and wonderful support during a very busy time!
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 […]
The Oulahen Team exceeded our expectations in every way. From start to finish in less than a week, they used their local market insight to develop a strategy, provided the resources to help stage our property, and expertly managed the entire sales process while we were out of town. We can’t say enough about their client service approach and would highly recommend The Oulahen Team.
It was a true joy working with you. Thank you so much for guiding me into finding my first home! I am truly ecstatic to be moving in the New Year! I hope to work with you in the future.
I worked with Mark & Jeff for quite a while looking for my first home and I can honestly say that are by far the most committed, dedicated and resourceful team I have ever had the pleasure of working with. While looking for my home, I changed directions quite a few times and Mark was not only incredibly patient, but had this ability to understand what I was looking for even before I did – which was hugely enabling for a first time home buyer. He went out of his way to show me my options to ensure that I understood the market & what my money could buy. He had the expertise & knowledge to educate me throughout the […]
We used Team Oulahen on both the sale and purchase side during our time of downsizing. The different generations from Team Oulahen brought the perspective of the likely buyer with the result that we were very happy with the results of our sale. Team Oulahen’s advice and guidance with respect to the purchase of our new house was also spot on!! We would highly recommend the Team to anyone thinking of buying or selling.
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 […]
We would like to thank you and your team for all the hard work and effort put forth into the sale of our condo on Harrison Garden Blvd. We are truly appreciative of your professional work and highly recommend you. We have moved a few times and can assure you that your team is one of the best. Our move went smoothly and we are very happy with our purchase.
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 for the excellent results on our Alfred Ave property. Within 2 weeks of listing the property sold for a much higher than anticipated price. In fact it still is the highest price for any comparable property in the area. The Oulahen Team exhibited expertise, integrity and commitment. When the offers for our property came in, three qualified in-house agents conferred to produce the best possible outcome. The process was calm, informed and totally transparent. In our opinion, the Oulahen Team must be the most informed real estate salespeople in the Willowdale area.
I have worked with the Oulahen Team Re/Max for the purchase of two homes and the sale of one. Their knowledge of real estate in homes and condominiums is outstanding. Their exceptional expertise in the art of a real estate transaction could only have been acquired through their many years of experience. But what I was most impressed with and most grateful for is the level of service I received from the Oulahen Team- it was far beyond my expectations. I have taken their advice on each transaction and it proved to be spot on. I would highly recommend them to all of my friends and family.
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 […]
Mark, I would just like to say thank you. You were awesome last night. You, Jeff, your mom and dad are all great. Thank you for all your patience, I know it was not easy dealing with both Rita and I, we had faith in you guys cause you guys are the best in the business. We are so excited that I didn’t sleep a wink last night. I believe we got a really good lot with lots of potential and we got it at a fair price. The process was probably one of the most painful and nerve racking in our lives, but looking back, we’ve learned a lot from it thanks to the Oulahen team and we love […]
I wanted to extend my extreme appreciation and gratitude for all the work you did for me on this new adventure of mine. You were so gracious to me and held my hand through the whole process, so to speak. I don’t think many agents big or small would have taken that kind of time for my little property but you made me feel like I bought a palace. Your team is very unique. I can’t thank you enough and if anyone I know ever needs a great agent, I will of course immediately pass on your name.
We couldn’t be more thankful to have you are our agents, partners and friends in our long search for a home. Thank you and all the best.
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your continued dedication with helping me find the right condo unit. Although it took time I finally lucked out and I am quite happy. You have always been available and I can tell that your mandate is excellence in getting the job done. Please send a special thank you to Mark, Norah and Paul. You all played a significant role in my sale and your caring has not gone unnoticed. I will keep in touch neighbours!
Thank you so much for your hard work in selling my home. Your personal touch was very meaningful to me.
Jeff and Mark, thank you so much for the great news that everything got finalized tonight! You guys are a great team and my brother and I are extremely happy with your excellent advice and guidance in the sale. My fiancee and I are having a glass of champagne to celebrate!
The Oulahen Team’s knowledge of the Yonge/Sheppard neighbourhood is really impressive. Having grown up in the area they have seen the changes firsthand and continue to keep on top of future development. As a result, Jeff was able to tell us how the properties we were interested in would be affected by future planning and where the neighbourhood was heading. The Oulahens are sincere and honest. They listened to what we were looking for and offered insightful suggestions on homes in the area. It is refreshing to find people you can trust to help you make the important decision of buying a home.
Mark & Jeff: Wanted to take a minute to thank you both for helping Jen and I with the purchase of our home. We could not have asked for a better team. Whether it was our starting pitcher who was always there to ask us what we needed or answer our 1,000 questions or our closer who is a “firm believer of not wasting anyone’s time” you guys were great. All kidding aside thanks to both of you for making this an enjoyable and worthwhile process. Thanks.
Again my thanks to you and Paul and the entire Oulahen organization for making it a most successful and satisfactory outcome – all the while making it look easy (which it isn’t). Your professional advice and support throughout the entire process were most appreciated. I will certainly recommend you highly to anyone looking to list a property. Hopefully we will have an opportunity to work together again. All the best.
Thank you very much for all your hard work to sell our home in such a short time and above our asking price. We were very impressed with your professionalism, work ethic and the real estate advice we received. Your research on competition in the area together with a feature sheet for potential purchasers exceeded all our expectations. Jeff – thanks for leading this sale , Norah – thanks for all the ideas to improve and lighten our home, Mark – thanks for taking those fabulous pictures and advertising and Paul – thanks for applying your real estate experience and excellent people skills to negotiate with potential purchasers. You are such a great team to work with and we would […]
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!
Thank you for all very much for the speed, congeniality, efficiency and overall excellent advice which resulted in the successful completion of two transactions. Paul did an excellent job with the bidding! Jeff – thanks for being so sensitive to my feelings. Norah, good advice re set up and moral support. Ajay – thanks for the late night. You really are a team! Great example for the community. Thank you for the lovely picture of the house. It shall be treasured for years to come.
We just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for your incredible degree of professionalism and hard work during the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. Your team sold our home in less than 1 day for more than we were asking, then you went door-to-door in the area we were interested in, and found us the perfect house that we now proudly call “home”. Thank you again for all your hard work, kindness and for looking out for our best interests.
The Oulahen team was an enormous help in buying our first home. They are exceptional people to deal with in a very competitive market. They have a high degree of professionalism and their negotiation skills and work ethic are second to none. Thank you for your outstanding service, determination and hard work in finding us a home.
The Oulahens offered me more than I expected from a real estate agent. Their suggestions were so effective that my home sold in two days of showings for more than I had asked. They let me lead and share in the process. Thanks a million Team!!
Thanks so much for all your team has done for us. It was such a pleasure to have such kind and professional people looking after our best interests. You’ve made us feel comfortable and at ease. We wish you and your family all the best.
I feel I made new friends, terrific business people and a united family company. You are all to be admired. I really appreciate how you kept in touch with what was happening. I will recommend you to all my friends.
Paul, Norah and Jeff Oulahen have been our real estate agents with many purchases and sales over the years. They have also managed a rental property for us. Their professionalism and attention to detail has been outstanding. They are consummate experts in their market providing us with perceptive advice on trends, current values and the fine nuances of the community. They have always given us their undivided attention and council in what can be a stressful time. They have worked tirelessly on our behalf and have, without exception, secured for us the very best deal.
Thanks for helping us find our first home. We really appreciated your expert knowledge, honest opinion and advice.
Being a first time buyer can be an excruciating process, however with your guidance it was enjoyable. I can’t comment enough on how much I appreciate your hard work and dedication. You guided me through the process, from start to finish and even helped me above and beyond any expectations. Your knowledge, experience and easy going manner allowed me to find the perfect home. It is refreshing to find people you can trust, especially with such an important decision, and I am glad that you were here. My recommendations to everyone! Once again thank you and all the best.
A big thank you to Jeff for helping me find the perfect home! Jeff helped me to find a condo in downtown Toronto. Buying a home for the first time is a intimidating process- but not with Jeff at my side! He knew all the right things to look for, to be concerned about and to consider. He understood exactly what I was looking for and was dedicated to inding me just that! Once we found the perfect place, Jeff coached me through the offer process, and I got a deal I was satisfied with. I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and understanding realtor! I have referred Jeff to friends and family, and they had the same […]
We have had the pleasure of working with Ajay Aheer and The Oulahen Team as part of our journey towards becoming homeowners. He took us through the entire process step by step answering any questions we had along the way. He represented himself and us as clients in a professional manner at all times. Having engaged him as our agent there were no regrets. We won’t hesitate to recommend him to any of our friends. Thank you again, Ajay, and if there is any need in the future, we will be calling on you.
I had some serious doubts about purchasing a home, it seemed like such a HUGE task! What if I made the wrong choice? But Mark and Jeff eased all my concerns. They took me through the whole process step by step and made sure I understood everything that I had to do. No matter how many questions I had they let me do things in my own time and made sure I was comfortable with all my choices. Once Mark and I started! They were a pleasure to deal with and I am ever grateful for the wonderful support I got from the Oulahens. I recommend them to everyone I know! It was a great experience! I never thought purchasing […]
