We cannot express how thankful we are to have picked Halina and her team at BREL to sell our house! A bit of a background…we’ve had an agent who has listed our house on the market for 1 year (yes that’s correct!) both exclusively and on the MLS and couldn’t sell it or even come close to bringing a decent offer. Our place was staged and de-staged at the end as he needed the furniture for another property. We were totally disillusioned with all realtors at this point. We were upfront with Halina when we first met her about our past experience, and Halina was very sensitive to our situation & instead of promising the stars and the moon just to get the listing, she very patiently walk through the steps she would take to help us get the property ready for sale and get the place sold at a fair price. Halina took her time to research on the price taking into consideration the current market conditions & she priced it right. Their amazing staging team of Kiel and Jim (and Halina) totally blew us away – they knew what the space needed & staged it so well that we weren’t even sure we wanted to move 🙂 Halina was very thorough in verifying all the information needed for the listing not leaving anything out. Zun the marketing coordinator working in the background did a phenomenon job in the administrative details + all the marketing materials! It took us 2 weeks to get from signing the papers with Halina to getting it listed and going live on MLS (realtor.ca). We listed on the Thursday, and held 2 open houses that weekend on Saturday and Sunday. Halina presented a GREAT offer on Monday (noontime), guided us through the negotiation process and it was FIRMED up on Wednesday! All these happened in less than a week from listing to a firm offer at close to our asking price. We still could not believe we’ve sold our place, almost too good to be true! All we can put it down to is having a great realtor like Halina + an amazing BREL team which is like a well-oiled machine to make this happen. If you stumble upon this review or is looking around for a realtor, do not look further as you have come to the right place 🙂
