First Time Home Buyer, Toronto

As first time home buyers, my partner and I are very fortunate to have found real estate agent Mike Lind online. Working with Mike was a great experience as new buyers in the Toronto East market. Like many first time home buyers, we interviewed a few agents, and down to a hard decision, we worked with Mike… and I’m sure glad we made the right decision. From the very beginning, we built a great relationship with Mike, which has made our first house hunting experience much more enjoyable than we had imagined. He’s very patient with a whole lot of experience and knowledge to offer.

What drew us to Mike was that he knew, understood and experienced everything that we wanted. We wanted to live in the city, be close to public transit, close to the highway, good neighbourhood, have a short drive to the beaches/ downtown and most of all, not overpay in a crazy bidding war. Of course we knew that we can’t have everything and being in Toronto, we knew that either we had to compromise to spend more on a recently renovated home or buy a fixer upper. What we wanted wasn’t unrealistic, but the area was everything.

Mike is the perfect Toronto East agent because he’s very knowledgeable about renovations, older houses and he knows every pocket of the city. With each house viewing, he would continuously point out the negatives of the house so that we’re aware of what we’re faced with and he knew how to pick out the gem in the haystack. Most importantly, appearance and modernizing is always changeable and Mike always helped us seek houses with a solid foundation and gave us pointers of the improvements we could make to the house to suit our taste.

After experiencing our first house hunting story, we know that other agents that we have met through this process have nothing compared to Mike. The difference between Mike and other agents is that his heart is in helping people. He’s very passionate about what he does and his laid back and easy-going attitude has made our house hunting very fun, effortless and exciting. Above all, Mike is a top notch real estate agent to be reckoned with. Very highly recommended and wouldn’t have it any other way!
