Peter was very professional. Great knowledge of the market. Great advise on submitting offer. We are enjoying the new house. We are glad we were able to get it.
In this atypical market (I hope), I really appreciated Peter's experience and knowledge in predicting and obtaining the best possible outcome.

Understanding Your Unique Home
Your property is unique and it's our job to understand and communicate the lifestyle connected to your home and match it to the right buyer. We spend the time to get to know your goals, your home, and your community in detail.
It is our duty to follow local market trends to give you the market value of your home. By conducting a market evaluation on your home we are able to show you how your unique home compares to others nearby that have recently sold, and what you can expect your home will sell for.
We have sold thousands of homes in Waterloo Region; pricing homes is what we do. We are dedicated to keeping ourselves up to date on the ever changing market.
The way your home will look staged to be sold is quite different from how it looks as you live there from day-to-day.
First impressions are important. We have one opportunity to appeal to potential buyers, and that happens in the first 10 seconds of entering the front door.
A Professional Home Stager will advise you as to the best way to present your home to maximize it's full potential.
3D tours offer the unique ability for buyers to walk through your home from the comfort of theirs.
Think of this as a virtual tour personalized to each potential buyer. Viewers not only explore your home online--they choose how to move through the rooms. The experience is active rather than passive.
When it is not possible to visit a home in person, virtual tours ensure your home is being viewed by all possible buyers.
Detailed Floor Plans
Your home will receive a custom floor plan mapped by a professional.
Floor plans will be made readily available to prospective buyers to assist them in visualizing the flow of your home, to determine how well it will suit their needs.
Your home is a high-value asset and a cherished place of belonging. We believe the marketing of your home should convey its true worth.
Professional photography is the foundation of property marketing and essential for visually communicating the story of your home. We are committed to using top-of-the line professional photographers.
Interactive & Print Storytelling
Interactive storytelling is a way of bringing together narrative design and different types of media to create immersive experiences for home buyers. Elevating the conversation above simple features, we focus on the unique lifestyle that embodies your property and community.
Print storytelling provides something tangible for buyers to walk away with. Featuring compelling designs, rich narratives and vivid images to tell your home’s story. Our brochures ensure your home stands out above the rest.
Tools of a RE/MAX Agent
With advanced analytics tools, we’ll always know how your property performs online.
Discover how many unique visitors view your listing and measure their level of engagement.
As the online world increasingly becomes the primary source for property searches, it is more important than ever to employ a marketing strategy of diverse visibility and captivating content to get your home noticed. Our job is to filter through the complexity and to design a customized marketing program that sets your home in front of the right demographic of buyers.
Posting on MLS is not enough. It is critical that your home is strategically posted on various digital platforms to get maximum visibility - on numerous listing portals, social media channels, and websites.
How Do Buyers Find Their Homes.
It's important to understand how Buyers search for their dream home....
People buy on emotion, not logic!

Facts You Need To Know
- 80% of all qualified buyers never even consider private sales when shopping for a home (Wikipedia).
- Of the remaining buyers (20%) their #1 motivation is to save on commission and purchase a home 5-6% less then market value.
- Mortgage companies have policies that are much less likely to approve a mortgage from a private sale.
- Agents have expertise when marketing your home.
- The vast majority of private sellers eventually use a Realtor.
Who are you letting in your home? What is their motivation?
- Most realtors get mortgage approvals for buyers before they show your home, eliminating the buyers that waste your time.
- Realtors get honest feedback of your home after each showing to identify the "real" objections and address them.
- We have negotiated 1,000's of offers keeping our client's best interest in mind. We understand and read a buyer not only by what they say but, also by their body language.
- Home inspectors are often used by buyers to try and re-negotiate the sale price. We have knowledge and skills to work in your favour and dispute buyers claims made by some home inspectors.
Selling a home is the largest financial transaction that most people ever make.
