I have worked with Travis for many years and for several house purchases, throughout the process he has been extremely professional & knowledgeable. I have full confidence in his abilities to perform an exceptional job and I have recommended him to numerous friends who have gotten the same experience. I'm glad I can count of Travis as not only my realtor for the future but also as my friend.
I just want to put it a huge recommendation for using Travis. Professional, we'll-researched and hard working. I met him at my place on Monday, he had it photo'd/listed by Thursday and sold by Saturday. Thanks man.
So me and my wife recently purchased our first home with Travis' help, and it was a hassle-free, stress-free experience. Travis showed us exactly what we wanted, provided very helpful information, and was nice enough to ferry us around as well. He even put up with me bothering him about mundane bull#### when the thoughts struck me, and always answered his phone/emails/texts in a timely manner.
Pretty much was the best time I could expect for purchasing a home.
Big thanks to Travis for his assistance in helping my wife and I purchase/build our house in Mohaganny. I contact Travis based on his professionalism and information that I observered on CP, and Travis definitely delivered. Since it is our first home, and we were just able to relocate from Edmonton recently we obviously had questions and were unsure if were going to purchase or build new. Travis fielded all of our questions and presented clear and concise options (Suggested properties on MLS, new build developments, etc) based on our feedback.
Travis also gave excellent information to help us make decisions on the options that we selected in our house to assist in resale value. Probably the most impressive part is how personal Travis is, and how well he services his clients regardless of how large his client volume is. I think the most we waited for a follow up to an inquiry was a day, and the majority of his responses were within minutes to let us know an answer or an approximate follow up time. Travis is also more than happy to communicate via whatever works for you (in person/phone/email), and is involved in the process as you need him to be (will volunteer to come to any meeting or just what you ask him to).
Just wanted to show my appreciation for the work Travis did with my recent purchase of a new home, and sale of my old home.
First was the purchase of a new-build house. Typically this is a standard transaction; however, there were a few things that I wanted that the builder did not want to do. With Travis' help I was able to get the "must have" options. A big part of that was that Travis knew the questions to ask; and how to ask them in a way that gave us the answers we needed.
Then where he really showed his talents was with the sale of my old home. He came out a few weeks before we put it on the market, and showed me a lot of things I needed to do to get ready for sale. A few of the things I knew, but there were other things that he placed higher up on the list. Once I did those things; I really understood why he told me to do them. My house had never looked so good.
Then there we the professionals he hired; most notably the photographer. Anybody can take pictures on a phone or even a DSLR camera, but these pictures really made my house stand out online.
Then there's his timing. He listed it at the right time to maximize interest. We had requests for showings right away, and by Saturday afternoon we had been through almost 20 showings.
Travis also knew the right price for listing. He came up with a list price that was higher than some recent comparables. However given his marketing, he was confident it was a good price to go in with.
He was right to start with that price. Within 3 days we were looking at multiple offers. I also liked how he dealt with those multiple offers. I ended up getting more than my asking price; deal done in 3 days and conditions waived a few days later.
So at the end of the day, the final sale price was higher than what comparables had sold for the previous couple of weeks. And by higher I mean enough to cover the total commission I was paying; both Travis' as well as the buyer's realtor. So even if I had been somehow able to list it for free, I would have been no further ahead. Never mind the stress with dealing with showing the house for weeks on end.
What about using a discount realtor you ask? Well there is a house with an identical floor plan to mine that went on the market 2 days before mine; at the same price. It's still sitting on the market.
I'd also like to recommend Travis. We listed a house with him on Thursday and had it sold by Sunday. Everything went smoothly and we were able to get a great price for the house. Thanks Travis.
Travis was very professional. Had very good comparative data to assist us with establishing a market price for listing. He did several open houses which generated over 100 showings. My belief is majority of realtors can sell properties during a good market but it takes a very good realtor to complete transactions during a depressed market. Would definitely recommend Travis and use him again.
I've been looking at buying a house for years but only recently did it become realistic to look into more seriously. That meant it was time to look for a realtor.
I very rarely post, but have been lurking the boards for many years and one of my favourites is Travis' Real Estate subforum. I had even messaged Travis a few years ago on here about something real estate related and the promptness and professionalism of his reply impressed me. Fast forward to now and I'm looking for a realtor and that had stuck with me. Between all of the good words and recommendations on CP and the way he still made time to respond to my question a few years back when I was just some internet random made choosing Travis as our realtor an easy decision.
Travis was fantastic at getting back to us quickly regarding any questions we had and with getting showings setup for houses we were interested in. His insight into the market and the houses we looked at was invaluable. He showed us every house we wanted to see, even those he knew we weren't likely to go with. We ended up purchasing a very nice house and were able to get a great price on it. I've already recommended Travis to a friend of mine and will continue to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. When the time comes to sell my place, Travis will be the first person I call.
Thanks for all your help Travis and thanks again for the Brian Burke meet and greet!
We were not the easiest clients with certain wants and needs. Travis was able to focus on what we truly wanted and was able to deliver, not just one listing, but several. Travis can make whether you're a first time home buyer or not; feel that satisfaction of knowing what you're getting. He was good enough to point out flaws and perks; knowing we were making a big purchase, he helped us out in every aspect, including a great broker. Thank you Travis, only real estate agent I would even think of calling!
I want to say thanks and give a sincere plug for Travis and his team. He's a pro at what he does, but more than that my wife and I were amazed and really grateful for how well he looked after our interests.
We started with a vague sense of maybe it's time to move. We weren't keen on involving a realtor too early for fear we'd get pushed toward moving, but we didn't feel anything of the sort. We looked for months, on and off, and were never pressured or made to feel like a nuisance. Along the way he always had great questions and insights - pointing out things we hadn't noticed or wouldn't have thought about, explaining what some of the advantages or drawbacks might be, and answering our questions.
When we finally pulled the trigger he did a lot of work to help us come up with a target price, and then negotiated an even better deal. He could easily have just hit the price we gave him and called it a day, and it would have hardly changed his revenue. Beating it was I think a matter of pride for him, but for us it saved a meaningful chunk of actual money. He helped arrange inspections and all the details to make sure it was all low stress and we were thrilled.
The selling process was just as good. He gave us great advice on what to fix up and how to present the house. He did a really thorough evaluation of the area and came up with a listing price. I had a small worry it was too aggressive for this market but he'd done the work and the logic made sense so away we went. We had lots of interest and he kept close to the other realtors so when we got the offer he knew how to play it, and had even been stoking a competitive bid so was able to squeeze out even more. Again I have a ton of respect for the fact that he could have made a deal we could live with and been done, but instead worked every angle to get the most for us.
Even after we took possession of the new place and his work was finished he helped sort out some minor dramas. He didn't have to deal with any of it but he chose to, and made our lives way easier.
Honestly we can't say enough good things. Thanks Travis and team.
