Dear Deedrie,

We want to thank you very much on the sale of our home. You listed and sold within a month at a time when the market is very difficult for sellers.

As you know, we tried to sell our house ourselves. We got an MLS listing and held open houses. We had interest at the open houses, many people came and many said they really liked the house, the price and the location, but none of that interest turned into a sale.

Even though we had over 50 groups of people look at our home during the open houses we held, you still had over another 30 at your first open house, plus 8 individual showings in the first week! It appears that the reach of professional realtors is greater than what a private homeowner can do. Thank you!

I believe that people really feel they must have a professional to guide them and let them know the pros and cons of the process of buying a home. A realtor is both trustworthy and independent. They have no underlying interest in the home… and also know which professional to go to for questions if the buyer has any. It is a big expenditure- the biggest the buyer will ever make! And, not one done very often.

We appreciate the help you gave us.
Best regards, G.M. AND M.H. Previous Oak Bay homeowners!
