My elderly mother recently decided to sell the home that she and my father had built 25 years ago at the time of their retirement. They had many wonderful years in this home that they had built together, until my father passed away and mom realized that a change was necessary. This was both a difficult and an emotional decision for all of us. Once the decision had been made, mom was adamant that she wanted Doug Chen to sell her home. She knew Doug from the neighbourhood, as he had lived there, and had sold many homes in the area. From personal knowledge she knew he was someone she could trust and who would help her make the best decisions during this process.
As someone who was helping to guide her, I appreciated her foresight in hiring Doug as our realtor. He helped us understand the market, the process,and most importantly paid attention to my mother's needs when things seemed overwhelming for her. He arranged everything quickly, marketed it effectively, and the home was sold in one week. She had at least 5 viewings a day, and on the weekend of the Open House approximately 50 more people came through, most with agents. As we received more than one offer, Doug helped with the negotiations and we ended up with an offer and terms with which we are extremely happy.
Selling a home is never stress free, but Doug made it as easy as possible for my mother with very successful results. Doug was with her every step of the way, and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had, no matter how trivial. I strongly recommend Doug Chen to anyone looking for a realtor as I know he will give 110% of his time and effort to any client.
Selling My Home
In spring of 2016 our Richmond Hill, family home, was placed on the market due to a work related relocation. We contacted Doug Chen from RE/MAX Hallmark to list our home and from the onset, we found Doug extremely caring, professional and calm. Doug was well versed on our current market dynamics of reduced sellers, discretionary buyers, HST effects in the horizon and a soon approaching March break with knowledge people would seek closure prior to their family vacation. Doug evaluated our home based on the noted local dynamics, location and property and recommended a listing target well over our expectations followed with strategically set a bid close time to ensure purchasers acted promptly and seriously. This was a success for our family and through Doug’s profession demeanor in negotiations, we sold our home in 4 days. Our home sale set a local bench mark not surpassed to date, nearly 12 months later.
In terms of communication, Doug consistently ensured all facts were presented and fully disclosed to ensure both seller and buyer protection. We felt an integral part of this sale through every step. Doug demonstrated patience with us to ensure we made, and were satisfied with, every decision. Doug works very hard to ensure these communication channels stay open and always demonstrated a sense of urgency and connection to us and to the business of selling our home. We would highly recommend Doug to represent you for your real estate sale or purchase. His experience and honest approach would bring you a positive experience.
