We want to thank the Freeman Real Estate, Ltd., Brokerage and their Team for their sincere assistance in the sale of our home at 180 Albany Avenue. We listed the property just prior to the mid March 2020 Covid 19 lockdown. Incredibly, the house sold fairly quickly and for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, the buyer, who was represented by another agent from another firm decided not to proceed with the closing. As you can imagine this was a very stressful situation to be in under normal circumstances. The Freeman Team did not give up and throughout the ordeal they were a calming force. When we finally found out 100% that the deal was off the team went into action, relisted our home and quickly found a buyer. Less than 60 days later we are pleased to report that the property closed and we ended up with a better sales end price with the Freeman's buyer. We cannot recommend the team enough. They are compassionate, caring and go the extra mile for their clients.
I wanted to thank your assistance with the recent sale of my family home. First, a little history. The house was my childhood home where we lived for more than 40 years. This was a very emotional task that you were all sensitive to, allowing us to take our time and move at our pace. After our initial meeting some two years ago you kept in regular contact updating us on the market and gently assisting us through the process. We thank you for this. After making the decision to sell, you helped organize us to present our home in the most positive fashion possible. Not only did you provide a comprehensive plan with associated timelines but you provided all the key personal required and even paid for some of the preparatory work. Once again we thank you for this. All of this of course paid off, selling our home with only one offer for 16% over list price in 8 days. Not only was this an amazing feat but you also brought the Buyer to the table. We would highly recommend your team to anyone wanting to hire a compassionate, trusting and highly skilled & likeable group of professionals.
We cannot recommend the Freeman Real Estate Agency enough. They are the best. Their extensive experience and knowledge became evident. Backed by many market analysis, keen knowledge of the neighborhood, past success of their marketing strategies, time-line expectations, and other factors necessary to sell at the highest price in the shortest time, it became clear. My siblings and I unanimously decided on the spot that we wanted the Freeman Team. Looking back on the whole process, it's apparent to me that we had not yet seen the full value of this team. They established dates to conduct a Contents Sale, clear the house of decades-long junk and clean the property including minor repairs at no additional cost to us, photograph and produce a brochure, list and market the property, distribute to their internal database, discuss preemptive offers, review and negotiate offers at their office and other internal procedures that I may not be aware of. Throughout the entire process they kept in touch with us via email and phone. At no time did we feel out of step or ignored. Their advice and suggestions were supportive and encouraging. However, their true experience and professionalism came through on the offer date. As a result of their efforts, 16 offers were received. We were amazed by their efficiency and skill. This was where their professionalism shone a synergistic way. The house sold on the offer date. It exceeded our expectations by far in regards to the sale price. To say that my brother, sister and I are pleased with the Freeman Team is an understatement. In retrospect, listing with them was not a good choice, it was the best choice!
Today is the closing of the sale for our Toronto townhouse of sixteen years. Work has taken us to another city. Friends recommended we work with Freeman Real Estate Ltd. It took less than a week for Freeman Real Estate to develop a strategy for putting the house on the market in December, to help us prepare the house, stage the house, list the house, show the house, receive offers and make a sale for our target price and well above asking. The Freeman team was focused and personally present throughout the process. They helped with the hard work of staging the house and were diligent about developing buyer interest in the property. The Freeman team worked hard and fast, was supportive and patient and was respectful of our needs and schedules as we juggled the sale with our professional obligations. They gave us sound advice at several key junctures, including as we considered multiple offers. We were impressed by Freeman's understanding of the market and their confidence in committing to a strategy which generated maximum interest in our house, a swift sale and an excellent price. We would happily work with Freeman Realty again and strongly recommend the firm to any prospective seller.
