As I embark on listing my next two homes on Snowshoe Crescent, my wife who is also my business partner asked me some intriguing questions. I thought it would be interesting to document our conversation.

How do you know so many people on Snowshoe Cres.?

Every month I send a newsletter keeping everyone up to date on the German Mills Real Estate Market.
Than I strive to personally meet everyone at least once to “put a face to the name”.
Never once have I asked anyone if they wanted to sell their home.

If you don’t ask people to sell their homes, than how are you listing more homes on Snowshoe Cres. than everyone else?

Well people don’t just list their homes suddenly because a real estate agent comes to the door and asks “Are you looking to sell your home?”
They are looking for someone they have a relationship with and someone that will be fully dedicated to their home as much as they are.
Rather than asking (a sign of lack), I prefer to maintain relationships, making friends and attract (a sign of abundance).

Why do you like German Mills so much?

My passion is helping people. It all started 4 years ago when I sold my first home in German Mills. The neighbours, the community embraced me and made me feel a part of the community. I have never felt so accepted in my life. At that point I decide this is where I belong and the residents  here will be like my family. I committed to give the German Mills area more exposure so more people will know how great it is to live here. I have to admit, it’s not that hard to convince people. German Mills is the most affordable area in Markham to buy a home. Add in great schools like German Mills Public School, Thornlea Secondary School, St. Michel Academy and St. Robert Catholic High School. Add in the central location and easy access to TTC and Highway 401. It hard not to love the German Mills Community.

I see on average you are selling at 110% of listing price. How do you do that?

Our home selling system has comprehensive coverage. That means we do marketing, we proactively locate buyers and we package the product (the house) to attract the highest price that willing buyers are able to pay.

Here are some hard questions… How many homes are on Snowshoe Crescent?

185

What year were they built?

1972 & 1973

What kind of homes are on the street?

How big are the large homes  on the street?
