AWARD WINNINg real estate SERVICE YOU CAN TRUST
Real Estate • Listing • House Hunting
With so many options available to real estate Buyers and Sellers, I continue to develop and enhance service features for listing and selling your home and for finding and buying your next home; always looking to provide my clients and their real estate interests with the most effective competitive edge. With a client-driven focus and 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 2019, 52% 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. Leading marketing the last time you bought and sold a home, isn’t necessarily the best practice for today.
A big component of knowing the local real estate market is knowing the local stats. I personally assemble a detailed analysis of Northumberland County real estate statistics and share them Thursday mornings on the “Snapshot” segment of Reality Realty. You can also find month end stats on the Resources page of this website. Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions or if you would like to discuss them.
My philosophy is to be detail-oriented and focusing on today’s most valuable practices; 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.
Don't just take our word for it
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.
