Situation

Merle has successfully sold her own homes before and on this occasion she purchased the Comfree program.

Situation

Helen and Nam are sophisticated and smart people. They are successful in their careers and early next year they will move into a larger home. Therefore, they had to decide how they were going to sell their existing home. Helen and Nam did not want to pay expensive commissions requested by traditional REALTORS®. They chose instead to purchase the Comfree program. Helen and Nam had never sold a home before. After a couple of months without success, they finally realized that effectively marketing and selling a home can be far more difficult and complicated than simply purchasing a ‘do it yourself’ home sale program. Helen and Nam started looking around for smart alternatives. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was an

Situation
After many years of loving life in Canada, family commitments back in their home country of Romania forced Iilie and Cecilia to make the choice to sell up and go back to the ‘old country’.
Recouping every dollar of equity was important to them as the move back was going to be expensive.
They saw no value in paying traditional REALTORS® expensive commissions and in 2016 they purchased the ‘sell by yourself’ program available from Comfree. After 6 months of languishing on the market, Iilie and Cecilia gave up and took the house off the market.
In mid 2017 they decided to try again. They realized that the Comfree program was not going to work for them. However, they were not keen to pay over $16,000 in commissions required by many traditional

Situation

Donna purchased this home right at the time when values peaked in Sherwood Park. Unfortunately, after many years of living in the home, re-sale values had still not recovered to a point where Donna would be able to sell for more than she paid. Therefore, it was very important for Donna to pick a service provider that could save her some money on commissions. There was also lots of choice for buyers, as many other sellers were listed at the time. The Ambergate Realty Advisors flat fee program was an obvious choice.

Result

After only 35 days on the market, we negotiated a sales price equal to approx. 99% of the asking price and we saved Donna almost $1500 in real estate commissions.

Situation

Susan and Frank purchased this home as their ‘forever home’. They paid top dollar as the specifications was very high and included: stainless appliances, granite counters and hardwood floors etc. Unfortunately, Frank’s work moved east to Toronto and they had no choice, but to try and sell. Susan and Frank knew they would have to sell at a discount and they feared that real estate commissions would gobble up all of their equity. They tried a traditional Remax REALTOR,® but after many months of no success and very little input from their REALTOR,® they turned to Ambergate Realty Advisors.

Result

After a reasonable time on the market, we negotiated full market value for the home and saved Susan and Frank over $8200 in commissions.

Situation

Eileen had reached a point in her life where she needed to downsize. Eileen was not at first comfortable with the notion of working with a REALTOR® and decided to try advertising on Kijji first. It quickly became apparent to Eileen that she would find the home selling process too overwhelming, without the assistance and support of a professional home selling company. Eileen researched her options and choosing to work with Ambergate Realty Advisors was an easy choice. 

Result 

We created complete exposure to the market. We generated many showings and identified a suitable buyer. We negotiated full market value for Eileen and saved her more than $6,000 in commissions.
