AWARD WINNING REAL ESTATE BROKER
Real Estate • Listing • House Hunting
Considering the constant change in real estate market conditions and effective strategies for these ever changing markets, we continually develop and enhance our real estate service features for listing and selling your home as well as for finding and buying your next home. Committed to results, I look forward to working together to optimize the process.
In 2001, 8% of Buyers found the home they purchased through the internet. In 2020, 51% of homes purchased were found through the internet. During that same time, print newspaper advertising of homes for sale went from 7% effective to less than 1% effective (data from the National Association of Realtors). The best marketing last time you bought and sold a home, isn’t necessarily the best practice for today.
As a result of professional images, video, drone video, floor plans, online aerial views, street views… we can know so much about a home and its neighbourhood – giving us excellent insight as to whether the property is worth viewing. The use of online meetings, screen sharing and electronic signatures has advanced and improved a Realtor’s ability to engage and inform Sellers and Buyers concerning the real estate process and real estate market. If you’ve bought and sold real estate prior to these advancements, you’ll certainly notice the benefits.
My philosophy is to be detail-oriented; ensuring your house selling and buying requirements are fulfilled the way that I would hope for the purchase and sale of my own home. Servicing Cobourg, Port Hope, Brighton and all the communities within Northumberland County. Why not make your next Realtor and moving experience your best.
A big "Thank you" to my clients
Northumberland is saying...
During the preparation and listing process, we found that Dale had good ideas and good advice, but he made it clear that the decisions were ours, not his. We appreciated this position. Prior to listing the property, he (not we) hired both house inspector and a house stager so that our house was listed complete with a report of its state of repair, and a set of pictures that made the house look more beautiful than usual. He was also willing to use his muscles to move furniture etc. to bring the stager's ideas to completion.
He had a very clear understanding of the current state house market in our area. When the offers came, which they did in a very short time, he was able to ask us the right questions so that we could easily make a decision about which offer to accept.
We would recommend, and have already recommended, Dale to anyone in the Northumberland area who is selling a house.
I can't speak for other nice guys, but in Dale's case - he does! A few years ago, he sold my daughter a house and I liked what I saw even before I knew he was a nice guy. So, I asked him to sell my house which was outside his usual territory. To make a long story short, the house sold in two days, in a market where house sales were depressed by 31% compared to last year. He managed to get us significantly more than the asking price, and interestingly, a similar house, similarly priced, listed in our community, at the time of this writing - three and a half months later, has yet to be sold.
You can read about the team of support people he has assembled to prepare your house for sale. I will only say that they, like Dale, are first class in their fields. Nothing was left to chance and every detail was well thought out and executed with professionalism. He also made buying our new home in Cobourg easy. So, it's a simple choice. You can go for the nice guy or you can go with a qualified professional who does sell houses. I went for the latter and got a nice guy as a bonus.
Two other people in my family have worked with Dale and we all feel he is an excellent agent.
The first thing that struck us when we met Dale was his calm demeanour and honesty. Selling a house is a very stressful time and Dale's attentive approach to every aspect of the process can't be matched. Dale is a truly genuine person who made us feel as though we were his only clients. He provided timely, balanced advice and well thought out strategies to maximize the return on our house sale.
Dale and his team employ innovative techniques to ensure that your house receives maximum exposure through the use of a variety of media. His knowledge and exhaustive market research gave us confidence that our asking price was in line and competitive with market demands.
Rest assured that my wife and I will promote the superlative service which Dale provided to us throughout our house sale and subsequent land purchase. His tireless work ethic can't be matched. Dale will be with you every step of the way in the sale of your home.
