"I used Stuart for the sale of my property and purchase of my new property. Stuart is an excellent realtor. Extremely knowledgeable, professional and hard working. His team at Ambergate is also excellent. I used Stuart before in 2011 as well for the sale of my property. I would recommend Stuart to any buyer or seller and would use him again if needed. Excellent realtor"

We really enjoyed working with Sandra. This is what she had to say

"Stuart did an excellent job in promoting and selling my parent’s home. He is very approachable and provided solid advice. I would definitely go to Stuart again. And I love the Flat-Fee cost."

What Would a Lawyer Say?

Many of our clients ask at what point they bring a lawyer into the process of buying or selling a home. Ask many lawyers this question and they suggest you bring them into the process as quickly as possible.

In some regards this makes sense as they are simply being protective of you the client.

What Do We Say?

Until you have a contract to purchase or sell a home, there’s really nothing to protect and as most lawyers charge by the hour, having a lawyer review every single document or consult with you on each step of the process could be expensive.

If you have chosen your REALTOR® carefully, they will help you take care of drafting a properly worded contract that gets you what you want. Lawyers sometimes forget

Situation

Bonnie and John decided to move to a condo for a simpler life. This meant that they would need to sell the family home. What to do? They were reluctant to pay traditional REALTOR® commissions so they tried Comfree. And why not? The argument to do so was strong. Comfree sells access to many of the same tools that REALTORS® use so it should be easy to sell they thought. Their thinking was that all they needed was an MLS listing and a few open houses and the home will be sold.

Unfortunately, the home languished on the market for months. They had lots of visitors but no offers. They then chose a traditional well known local expert. Surely this time the home would be sold. Nothing. According to Bonnie and John they had even fewer visitors

If you are thinking of selling a home soon, you should start thinking about how to select a REALTOR®. 

Your first approach could be to seek out the local expert for the community in which you want your home sold. 

On the surface this makes perfect sense. Maybe the ‘local expert’ has an exclusive network of buyers looking in the area. Perhaps a ‘secret sauce’ to success. 

However, if local experts ever truly existed, the internet made them redundant years ago.

The internet and social media has completely changed the way that homes are bought and sold. 

We suggest you look for a real estate company that knows how to find ALL buyers for your home. 

A firm that employs a comprehensive home selling process and employs a team of

Situation

Mr. Smith helped to build this home just after the war as a young man. Together with his wife, he subsequently went onto raise a family of 4 wonderful children. Unfortunately, his wife passed away leaving him with a large yard and a home that was simply too big for him alone. Mr. Smith moved into sheltered accommodation. No longer needing the home, Mr. Smith asked his children to find a suitable real estate service provider to get the home sold.

Several traditional REALTORS® were interviewed, none of whom had anything particularly different to offer or say about how to get the home sold for full market (retail) value. One REALTOR® suggested that because the lot was so large, the best thing to do would be to tear down the home and
