Earlier this year we finally decided it might be time to downsize and reached out to Rob for assistance and guidance – the process was amazing and we could not be happier with the outcome.
First came the difficult task of finding a suitable property. Rob listened to our needs and was very patient while we explored various different options. It wasn’t long before we found what we thought was our ideal next home. This is where Rob’s experience really paid off. His wise counsel and intimate knowledge of the players and the neighbourhood helped us get a better deal than we had initially expected.
Then came the really tough part – selling our home of 18 years. We were fairly knowledgeable about real estate in our old neighbourhood, but Rob’s honest assessment was critical to achieving optimal pricing which he then supplemented with fabulous marketing. While many people in our neighbourhood overpriced their homes and then endured months (or years) of showings with little interest followed by numerous price reductions, Rob made sure our expectations we realistic and delivered against his promises. We got a lot of interest, sold quickly and got the price and closing conditions we wanted. Absolutely painless.
There are many agents out there, but if you want someone who will truly be your partner, tell you what you need to know (not what you want to hear) and work incredibly hard on your behalf then, as far as we are concerned, Rob and his team are the only game in town. Simply stated, they deliver when and where it counts.
We used the Marland Team, Rob, Karen, Myha and Haidyn, first to purchase a new home in a wildly competitive seller’s market complete with bidding wars, and immediately after to sell our existing home in a much quieter market. And with a very tight closing date on our new purchase. Although we knew the risks in doing so from the beginning, buying before selling was pretty stressful. This made us pretty needy, high-stress clients.
The Marland team were fabulous throughout. They met with us regularly, kept us informed and up to date with detailed market info on both purchase and sale, listened carefully to our views on what we were looking for and how to market our house, and changed the sales strategy when our house wasn’t moving quickly enough for us. They connected us to the trades like painters and movers that we needed to quickly to get our house looking it’s best before going to market and to get into our new house when it was time.
Ours wasn’t an easy purchase and sale, but they were outstanding and made the whole thing work inside 3 months. We got our dream house. And our buyer got theirs.
We have already recommended the Team to our friends.
We hope never to move again. But if we do we will be using the Marland Team. Definitely.
Rob is a fantastic agent. He helped me when I bought my house and has since helped most of my family and a couple of friends. He makes the process seem less overwhelming and is straightforward and honest. He also takes the time to learn what it is that you want and helps to ensure you make an informed decision and get the best deal. He has a great ability to connect with people and takes great care in ensuring that you are informed of all the steps in the sale or purchase. I recommend him highly!!
I had the good fortune to work with Rob and his team on a number of deals all of which ended successfully. The team is professional, personably and often demonstrated a client-comes-first philosophy. Rob’s team doesn’t just list your property they proactively seek out appropriate buyers.
I can say unequivocally that this team is the best I’ve worked with.
Rob and Myha have helped us buy and sell our homes and our experience with them has been terrific! They are thorough, knowledgeable, whipsmart, and a whole lot of fun to work with. We have recommended them to friends and now sing their praises to the community-at-large. If you need the best help to buy or sell – trust the Marland Team!
