Selling a House in Toronto
The Toronto real estate market is competitive and huge and selling a house in Toronto can be daunting. Finding the right REALTOR® for you can be a challenging journey, but an important one. I am a full service real estate professional and have a network of experts to help with all phases of moving, downsizing, or selling a deceased relative’s home.
My goal for each client is to help them sell their current house, and find the home they are looking for. Whether their goal is to find something bigger or to downsize into their forever home such as a smaller house, a condo, or community designed for senior living, I will find a buyer for your home and help you navigate your home buying journey. I have decades of experience that guide this process, and if you find yourself in the heartbreaking role of selling a deceased relative’s home I can help you through this challenging time.
Barry prides himself on being a relationship driven agent, not a transactional one.

How I Sell Your Property
Times have changed. Newspapers are not often the first avenue for finding information, but rather people are choosing to go online and do a Google search to quickly find the information they are looking for. Google results may include links to website pages and blogs, YouTube videos, and various social media channels like Facebook and Instagram. These various channels lead the way for buyers today.
How I Market Your Home
Here are some of the services and marketing methods that I employ when listing a residence:
Toronto MLS Listings
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) provides the largest exposure that a property can achieve. MLS is viewed by tens of thousands per week via public access at www.realtor.ca Our RE/MAX office has more than 250 REALTOR® staff and your listing is circulated to each member. Buyers are provided with feature sheets on your home to keep the specific information.
Communications & Advertising
I use both traditional print advertising and online marketing to bring your home to the Toronto real estate market. With a combination of direct contact mail to clients and neighbours looking for homes, email campaigns to active REALTORS®, website visibility and YouTube, your home will be widely advertised and marketed well. Additional strategies are available for more complex or higher end properties.
