We turned to Wendy after a failed attempt to sell our property through another Toronto agent. We are so glad that we did!
There were a few complications to deal with during the marketing and sale, including an uncooperative renting tenant, a difficult condo corporation, ongoing renovations and a property that we knew would not be an easy sell. Additionally, we had to be out of the country and could not be present during this time.
Wendy handled everything flawlessly!
There are so many ways in which Wendy went above and beyond, so we will mention only a few. Winning the cooperation of the rental tenants by bringing balloons and muffins for their children and spending time talking with the family (Wendy’s own idea), giving us constant advice on how to handle all individuals involved, giving us advice on changes to pricing strategy, making sure we kept calm when things took longer than expected, guiding us on how much to invest in upgrades before the sale, etc.
Wendy was also always available to talk to us and patiently answer our sometimes silly questions from another time-zone. This made us feel very confident and helped our peace of mind.
In the end, and most importantly, Wendy secured our “best case” price after helping us through several iterations of the contract and closed the deal earlier than we had expected.
During the sale of our property it was evident to us that Wendy is not only a true real-estate professional who really understands her business and market beyond the basic buy and sell attitude that has become common in this field. She also used her significant experience and understanding of people, their situations and needs to achieve the best result and peace of mind for us. We will definitely use Wendy again for our next property transaction in the Toronto area.
I was ready to list my house with another agent when someone recommended Wendy Starr to me. I called to meet with Wendy and felt very comfortable with her and she presented pictures and prices of other townhouses that had sold in my area over the past year and ones that were up for sale. This was more than 2 other agents had shown me. She staged my house beautifully. When the offers were presented she was very professional with them. She was very patient with me the whole time the house was listed as I was very nervous about selling my home that I had lived in for over 20 years.
I would recommend Wendy to anyone selling.
When I decided to put my condo on the market, Wendy Starr was referred by a friend. I’m so glad that my friend did. After our initial meeting, Wendy walked me through the listing process and explained everything in a way that I could understand, answering my question with patience.
Wendy worked tirelessly staging my place and I was delighted with the results…she even touched up my kitchen cabinets with paint. My friends and family raved about how nice my place looked. I was very impressed with her creativity.
With Wendy’s positive attitude and hard work, my condo sold within a week. I then had the pleasure of spending time with her finding a new place to call home, with great success.
I will definitely refer Wendy to my friends, relatives, neighbors and business associates.
We hired Wendy Starr to sell our home. She did everything in her power to make it happen. From staging our home, taking care of my cats and personally being there for every open house. Wendy always listened to our concerns and found solutions to them all. Wendy is the best real estate agent I have ever had. We got top dollar for our home. Wendy knows how to get it done. Thanks Wendy!Rozanna W.
Wendy was very good. She listened to my requirements and only showed me property’s that fit my request. She recommended a very good real estate lawyer which helped the whole process run smoothly.
I would use Wendy’s services again and would recommend her to friends and family. A very professional person all around and easy to work with.
Wendy helped me sell and purchase me a home, as well as a new condominium. She went above and beyond when taking my concerns to heart, in fact the original sale of my house fell through after I had already moved out, the buyer backed out at the last minute. I was away on vacation when this happened, and it obviously caused me a lot of stress as the house had to be relisted and obviously staged. Wendy took care of every single detail, including the staging of the house and had the house sold a second time in less than a week. Wendy sold my house in a very timely fashion, and found me another home that was exactly what I was looking for. We were in a multiple offer situation and because of the professionalism, kindness and honesty she showed, we got the house!
I have and will continue to recommend Wendy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Anyone that has the pleasure of working with Wendy will never look back. She is a professional, with the warmth and kindness of a close friend. She goes above and beyond in every transaction to make sure that her client is satisfied.Lisa C.
I was very pleased with Wendy as my realtor. From the excellent staging she did (at no extra cost), to her diligent work ethic, and her professional manner she found me a qualified buyer in no time and the price she negotiated for me was better than I expected. She always had my best interests at heart.
I have lived in several provinces and bought and sold numerous properties over the years and believe she is one of the very best realtors I have ever dealt with. I would highly recommend her to any buyer or seller.
Now that all of the dust has settled, after the successful sale of our property, my wife and I would like to take this time to thank you.
As you know, we almost enlisted a much larger realty brokerage from Oakville. After our interview with you it was clear that you took a more genuine, personal interest in our residential home sale. Not only did you have many good ideas on how to to sell our home, but you were also open to our ideas as well. That was very important to us. In addition you saw the real value of the house and property and priced it competitively.
The outside interest and traffic of potential buyers was phenomenal. You were very supportive, knowledgeable and strategic throughout the marketing phase. The proof of your effectiveness was that you sold the house in 50 days and within 1% of our asking price.
Indeed, your real-estate firm became “The Giant Slayer” we hoped for.
Thank you ever so much for all of your hard work and good humour. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone in the Burlington and Hamilton area.
Cheers!Ray & Delores K.
I’ve worked with Wendy on 4 transactions so far. She goes above and beyond, has as a strong work ethic and I’m not going to hesitate to work with her again. My latest experience is a purchase of my new home with my Fiancé and we owe that purchase to Wendy being on the ball. Also, selling my condo is due to her help, including some staging and other key pieces of advice.J.F. L.
Wendy sold a number of properties for me and I found Wendy at all times diligent, professional, attentive to detail, rigorous and purposeful during the time from listing the properties until everything was completed including the little things after the closing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Wendy to anyone who needs to buy, rent or sell a property.Donnacha R.
Wendy Starr: What a Star, for sure!
I have had the pleasure of working with Wendy who helped me find the house of my dreams since 2013! She also helped my daughter and son-in-law find theirs. What an amazing experience and words are not enough to describe how privileged I feel to have met Wendy. I am very impressed by her professionalism and know-how, which are complemented by Wendy’s warm disposition and her great sense of humour, not to mention her catchy optimism.
It was no small task to find my dream house – yet Wendy demonstrated the highest level of integrity at all times, which a rare quality in the real estate business. She was always enthusiastic, supportive and very patient. Never once did she try to influence me in any way, she respected what I wanted and understood my goal.
Wendy is an excellent listener and a very honest person. Again, a rare quality in her business. She let me make my decision. It is obvious Wendy cares very much about finding her buyer’s dream home, this is truly her priority.
I can only recommend her wholeheartedly and in good conscience. Wendy can communicate my coordinates to you if you wish to talk about her phenomenal credentials.
She definitely is one of a kind in this business: give her a try! You won’t regret it.
