Thank you Michael!
You were the best agent we ever could have hoped for – thoroughly professional, a calming presence, always had time for us no matter what the question, and a friend on top of it all! We’re so happy with how this all worked out!
Michael it is such a pleasure to know you and to have been through so many rites of passage with you. We’ve been each other’s “first” a few times! Lovely to be with someone with so much integrity and a great sense of humour. Thank you so much for working so hard on our behalf at Greenwood in ’04 and ’09. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to “Cedar Bridge” for years to come.- Lily and Simon read more
Michael Wacholtz was our real estate agent on two purchases and one sale and there are really no adequate words to describe Michael's professionalism, enthusiasm and dedication.
He worked tirelessly to help us find a house when we first moved to Toronto and secured one for us when we were in competition with another buyer. He was assertive and firm and his sharpness prevented us from losing the house.
When it came time to sell this house and move to something a little bigger, he was instrumental in getting the house ready for sale, even helping us move furniture, prepare for the open house and make small repairs. His amazing skills and vision helped us realize a huge profit on our house and it sold for well above asking.
When we purchased our new house, he spent months driving around with us looking at homes. He was always positive and never grew weary of our persnickety demands. He was always there when we needed him to show us a house we wanted to see and he worked hard at getting our house - drawing up several offers (we couldn't be there for the offer night) and calling with the good news.
Michael is a skilled professional. He's personable and smart and knows the market and his clients. We would never consider buying a house without Michael by our side.- Pamela Oakley and Mark Ingram read more
Michael helped my wife and I buy a home this fall, and from start to finish (and beyond), he was a real pleasure to work with. We moved back to Toronto from San Francisco, and even before we arrived, Michael got to know us by phone and email and started sending us suitable listings.
Once we arrived, he drove us to many properties, encouraging us to get our feet wet. There was never any pressure tactics or dire warnings. As first-time buyers, we had a million questions and concerns, so it was helpful that Michael also comes armed with a lot of knowledge about home renovations, inspections and all of the potential problems to look for.
Throughout the process, he really got to know us and made great recommendations on what he thought would suit us best. He also connected us with a great mortgage broker as well as a property lawyer, who both gave us excellent service. And when we finally closed the deal, Michael helped negotiate our offer below listing price, while keeping expectations in check.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael to other people looking to buy a house -- he's friendly, cheerful, patient and hard-working.- Luke A. read more
I have just purchased a house and I could not be more pleased. Michael has first hand knowledge about renovations which was incredibly useful when estimating what we could afford to fix and what may have been a problem. He saved me from making a couple of unwise purchases by inquiring about things I would not have even thought about.
If I had to describe him in three words they would be trustworthy, knowledgeable, and hardworking. He didn’t sell us a house he found us a home.- Jane Spence read more
