"Our mother passed away and my sister and I had to sell her home. I was living with her during her illness and needed to find a place to live. I decided to buy a home for myself after the sale of Mom’s home. It was a crazy and stressful time for my sister and I to say the least, finalizing probate, having renovations done to prepare for the sale and the list goes on.
My sister and I had met and were approached by other realtors. We hired Jodi because she was up front and honest with us from the start of a long 1 1\2 year process from selling our mother’s home to me buying my place. Between my sister and I, we are sure we caused her some premature greying…lol!
We found Jodi was patient, calm and professional when things got a little crazy. While mom’s place was for sale we were looking for my place. She took care of all the details regarding open houses, doing a walk through to make sure things were in order prior to the showing, even lugging things from her home for staging. Jodi did her research and came prepared for everything.
We would absolutely recommend Jodi to others!" J. & E .
"We always wanted to invest in real estate. With our mortgage renewal coming up, we saw the opportunity of using our home equity to obtain funds to buy our first rental property.
Our friend is also mortgage broker and recommended Jodi’s services. Our friend spoke very highly of her.
Jodi is very organized. She is an excellent negotiator. She is always looking after us when it comes to putting together a good deal to present to the sellers.
We have been most impressed with her knowledge in property assessment. She is not only great at assessing the physical conditions of a property but also at identifying a good investment opportunity in the up and coming areas. Jodi always gave us great advice in terms of what needed to be done to the house in order to maximize our investment or increase the rental income.
We look forward to continue working with Jodi for years to come!" A. & L.
"Jodi was referred to us by one of our friends when we were just starting a family and needed a new home. She was the best thing that could have happened to us! We were first time home buyers and Jodi was very attentive to our needs and instrumental in guiding us through the process. Her knowledge regarding Toronto neighborhoods and financing is vast. She even understands structural issues - helping us to see poor renovation jobs and other issues that could come up in an inspection. We looked at dozens of homes and Jodi was extremely patient with us and superbly helped us navigate to the home that we wanted and needed.
Fast forward four years . Our family had grown and we felt the need for more space. Jodi was the only realtor that we considered.
Jodi once again took us through dozens of homes. We were looking in the GTA at a time when bidding wars for homes were fast and furious. After losing 7 homes in bidding wars we thought that we wouldn’t be able to move to a larger home, but Jodi was very encouraging and perseverant.
One day, when we had lost a bid she brought us back to a house we had looked at, and pointed out the key elements we were looking for were in this home we had overlooked. We ended up getting that house, which was larger and in a better neighborhood.
When we were looking for a realtor, we spoke to several candidates, but Jodi stood out because she was not pushy, always available, and organized. We believed that she fully understood our wants and needs.
Jodi made great suggestions on how to help our home look appealing to buyers. When we were searching for homes, she kept us focused on what we were looking for, helped us narrow our search based on our needs versus our want. This was extremely important during the time were purchasing because homes were selling within 24-48hrs of open houses. She was always very honest and helped us align our expectations with the reality of the housing market.
We absolutely highly recommend Jodi L to all of our friends and family, and she is the only realtor we would consider using If we decide to buy, sell, or rent our home in the future. Jodi she has our full faith and confidence." J.& L.
"Our small condo didn't fulfill our criteria anymore so we decided to sell it and buy a house, as we were planning to grow our family and needed a bigger place. We also wanted to move into a specific area which was accessible to good schools, our work and transit.
Jodi came recommended by a close friend. As we spoke to her, we realized she is exactly who we needed. She is very patient, very professional and helped us understand the process clearly. We not only enjoyed the process of looking at numerous properties but also became good friends. Her "go-getter" attitude as well as empathy made her the perfect realtor for us. She answered our million questions properly and clearly each time, she didn't push us to make a decision, ever, and she helped in many ways which was not even her job! She went over and beyond her job which makes her an amazing and unique realtor as well as a friend now!
Jodi gave us clear guidelines to help us make decisions when we were confused about anything. She understood the emotional aspect of a house purchase and always acknowledged it and helped us cope with it. She was extremely professional which kept us sane and worry free.
There are 2 things I remember really well that were tremendously helpful. First, when we made our offer in what had become a bidding war, Jodi helped us determine our final amount which we were willing to pay. She helped us clear our minds and make a confident and firm decision. Second, while we were waiting to hear back from the sellers, she kept us busy with funny notes and pictures which helped me to stop worrying about the situation. Instead of being stressed and worried as we waited, we were laughing away and then she told us that we owned the house! That is the "human-touch" Jodi brings to real estate, which I had not experienced before.
For anyone who wants to have a positive, clear and stress-free experience of home sale or purchase, I most definitely will always recommend Jodi!" C. & G.
