As sometimes happens, I was engaged by a family from London England to find them a home in Toronto. Working with little knowledge of the city, but wanting to make sure that they felt comfortable in the home they chose, they were concerned about making the right choice.


Understanding that giving my clients the ability to make an informed decision was one of the most important factors of this relationship, I started by finding them a comfortable rental property is a temporary solution. This way, they could take the time to see and understand the neighbourhoods that they’d be choosing from.


Within a few months, we were able to find the perfect home for them in the Cricket Club neighbourhood. The house itself had just come on the market, and as it turns out I knew the property very well – as I had sold it to the current owners. Most importantly for my clients they got just the right place and were able to close before the 2014 soccer World Cup, just in time for them to have the party they were looking forward to in their new backyard.
