The first thing I would like to say is thank you; I am not in the habit of writing referral letters and as a businessman, I am hard to impress but you did just that. It is a rare occasion when someone has worked as diligently on my behalf and convinced me by their actions that they have my best interests in mind.
After a very unproductive 3-month listing with a “discount” broker, it was refreshing to have you proactively contact me and have a discussion about earning my business as opposed to accepting it (the attitude I received from some other realtors). During our initial meeting you presented me with a compelling argument for your services and I was impressed by the unique approach that gave me excellent exposure for no increased cost to me. When we agreed to execute a listing contract, I was still a little skeptical given my past experience but my skepticism quickly evaporated, however, when I got more attention from you than I could have hoped for. You were excited about the opportunity, immediately engaged and very proactive in developing a plan that would market and sell my property. I was impressed with how quickly you activated my listing and prepared the marketing materials (Ivan you have an excellent eye for the taking the best pictures of my home). I was happy to hear the realistic suggestions you had for things I could do to help market the property.
Being a businessman, I always come back to the old adage that “the proof is in the results” and did I ever get results! Within the first week of signing the listing with you, I had more interest and showings of my home than I did during the entire prior three months under the old listing and within less than two weeks I had an accepted offer. I would like to again point out how impressed I was with your advocacy on my behalf right up until the last of the conditions came off of the offer.
I truly felt like I got double the attention throughout the whole process and I am a convert — you can add my name to your long list of very satisfied clients and you will have my business for as long as I’m in Victoria and you are involved with real estate. I highly recommend you to anybody in need of real estate services and I mention your name frequently when talking to friends.
Thank you again very much for the superb service!
