When we were on the hunt for our first home last year, it was both an exciting and very stressful time. We weren't really sure what we wanted, what features/or potential issues to look out for, and had no idea about what sort of new costs we could be facing when considering investing in a place. What is so wonderful about Gaelen is that he made the whole process easy. Furthermore, and I would like to highlight this, he didn't push a single property on us. He gave us pros and cons of all the places we viewed, and there were even a few properties that after viewing, he said "I don't want to sell you this place." He is a realtor that puts his clients' well-being above his own personal interests. We can also attest to his knowledge and patience as there wasn't a single question out of the thousands of questions that we hurled at him, that he did not take the time to answer, even if that question came at midnight on a Sunday. Thanks again Gaelen, and know that all of our future business will be coming your way!

Buying a home in Toronto can be a very stressful experience; however, Gaelen has made it a positive one. Gaelen came through on every promise made and exceeded our expectations.

His passion for real estate allows him to shine above the rest of the agents in our city. He was very accurate and knowledgeable about prices of homes selling in our preferred areas and was very confident about getting us our dream home. He not only won the bidding war, but he helped us buy our new home at the best possible price and we truly felt as he was looking out for our best interests. Even after closing, Gaelen is still prompt to answer any questions we have concerning new home/neighbourhood. We have absolutely no complaints and only positive things to say about out experience with Gaelen. We recommend Gaelen with the utmost confidence to any of our close friends and family. There is a reason why he is rated one of the best realtors, he has great talent and passion for his job, and most importantly he gets the job done! Actions truly do speak louder than words! Thank you Gaelen!

It was a pleasure to have an agent as knowledgeable and honest as Gaelen. He offered great tips when finding our re-sale and I highly recommend him!

Gaelen is an amazing real estate agent with an impressive knowledge of the city, its neighbourhoods, and its buildings.

Gaelen helped me find my first property - my condo in King West. Gaelen helped me find exactly what I was looking for in exactly the neighbourhood I was looking for at a time when there was nearly no supply in the market at my price point. He managed to find me a place well below my maximum budget that was so much better than places out there going for way more. In the 8 months since I purchased it, the value of my condo has gone up dramatically and I love everything about it. Knowing I couldn't afford it if I tried to buy it now is pretty fun  :)

As a first-time home buyer, I really appreciated all the effort Gaelen puts in to make sure that you understand every complicated bit of the whole process. Even after I purchased my condo, Gaelen touched base at all the big milestones to make sure everything was good and to make sure I didn't need anything.

Gaelen went above and beyond in reviewing my agreement of purchase and sale, recommending changes to the agreement, recommending other professionals for related tasks when asked, helping me understand all my closing costs (actually put together an Excel table of all the costs), offering to assist in my PDI, and ensuring my mortgage and final closing all went well.

Overall, Gaelen made sure my first purchase was within my budget, was the best value for my money, and would represent the best investment in terms of future resale (he's big into this).

Best of all (if you are me), Gaelen's a normal down-to-earth guy that you can trust for the biggest financial decision of your life.

10/10 would recommend.

Gaelen is ALWAYS accessible and open. He is knowledgeable on the market and is quick to reply (even with the most neurotic of questions). He made our home buying experience easy and informed. In this crazy Toronto market, I would go to no one else but this guy. And one hell of a guy he is.

Gaelen was a true pro in my search for my first property. He was informative, committed and PATIENT. I was a second away from buying a property (which would have ended his work) but decided last minute to keep looking. He was happy I did this because his chief priority is making the customer happy in their home. He walked me through the process and always answered my barrage of texts and calls. He knows his stuff and you will be both comfortable and confident using him as your agent.

My entire experience at selling my new condo with Gaelen was what I call a truly "turnkey" experience. I had very little to worry about as everything was taking care of itself through Gaelen. Prior to selling, I was anxiously questioning myself on how much I should ask for and what offers I would consider as acceptable. Gaelen took me through a lengthy process of viewing what else was available in my neighbourhood along with the asking prices for each. This increased my confidence level on the unit I was selling, which led to me to post for slightly higher than my original conservative value.

I'm glad I followed Gaelen's advise on the selling price, as I sold my unit above my desirable limit within less than a week. The rest was a walk in the park. Gaelen even went the extra mile for many other items throughout and after the sale of the unit. Many thanks Gaelen for all of your help.

Almost a year ago, I was referred to Gaelen by my RBC Mortgage Broker who raved about his knowledge of King West and friendly approach to the stressful process of buying real-estate. Gaelen far exceeded my expectations as I started my search for my first home. Gaelen arranged multiple showings over a couple days and gave me his honest opinion of the resale potential, liveability as well as considering my preferences. He also calmed my fears of making the biggest purchase of my life to date and he was by my side through the offer, closing and of course at the house warming party. A few more things about Gaelen, he referred me to a lawyer, gave me advice on my kitchen renovation to maximize the value and just a couple weeks ago Gaelen updated me on the increased value of my condo based on recent sales in my building. I highly recommend Gaelen for all of your real estate needs!

Gaelen was amazing to work with. He met with us and walked us through the process, connected us to resources (financing and lawyers) and was really attentive to what we were looking for in a new space. Gaelen was professional, kind, and really patient; he listened to our feedback as we narrowed our list of wants and needs. Within a few months of looking, we found a condo that perfectly meets our needs (and all the items on our wish list as well!) I can't speak highly enough about Gaelen, he's amazing at his work and we made a new friend in the process!

Highly recommend Gaelen as a real estate agent for buying property in Toronto.

He has extensive knowledge of the Toronto market, which helped me in my search for my first property. He was extremely patient while I looked for the perfect place to call my first home.��

Gaelen was able to find a condo that I absolutely loved within my budget during the crazy hot real estate market this year. He went above and beyond helping me during the complicated process of buying a condo on assignment. Gaelen even reviewed my agreement of purchase, gave me a breakdown of costs ahead of time and reviewed the final closing costs paperwork (and pointed out costs I didn’t have to pay which saved me a few thousand dollars!).

I love my first home, and I have Gaelen to thank for it. Would not have been able to buy this place without his expertise and guidance.

Gaelen is absolutely one of the best real estate agents in the city, and I’ve recommended him to my friends who are looking to buy property.

Thanks again Gaelen!

As a first time home buyer, I was very anxious through the process as I'm naturally very cynical and distrusting. But my experience with Gaelen alleviated all that potential stress. He's very knowledgeable and experienced and was able to diligently respond to all my concerns and needs. I think it’s of the utmost importance that I felt that my agent was looking out for my best interests, e.g. re-sale potential and location, and was able to guide me, without feeling like I was ever being "sold" something. I have and will continue to recommend him. Thanks! I can’t wait to move in to my new place!

Words cannot describe Gaelen's expertise as a real-estate agent. As a first time homebuyer, the whole process was confusing and scary for me. Gaelen took such time and made such an effort to educate me and help me make the right decisions. At no point did I ever feel pressured into buying a house; he was patient and extremely insightful, even leading me away from potential disasters. In fact, after seeing all the research he did and all the time he spent with me, my whole family was stepping in line for a chance to use his incredible talents. He's made us all very happy and I will most definitely use him again in the future. He is passionate about his job, professional and always had my best interests in mind. I absolutely love my house and I have Gaelen to thank for that.

It was such a great experience working with Gaelen! He was knowledgeable, super patient and always available to answer our often long list of questions. He walked my partner and I every step of the way in selling not one, but two condos – one after another, within a single month! He calmed our fears and provided incredibly helpful tips in staging our condos to ensure we get the best possible price. We were thrilled when our condos sold over asking and it’s all thanks to Gaelen’s hard work, creativity and dedication! Gaelen was right there with us up to moving day and made sure the entire closing process was as smooth as possible. Thanks so much Gaelen for helping us with selling our places and we look forward to working with you in the future!

When I canvased my FB friends for real estate agent recommendations, several were sent to me, however Gaelen stood out amongst them all and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever for a real estate purchase!

Leaving Ottawa for Toronto, time and distance are obstacles that everyone has to overcome when dealing with long distances, but Gaelen made it easy for me and stress-free. From my first email asking for his background and experience in the condo market, Gaelen provided me with all of the information I required and immediately asked what I was looking for. I gave him a detailed list and within a short time I had the first batch of listings sitting in my inbox ready to view. He made sure to apply his knowledge of neighbourhoods and specific buildings to carefully select the listings that would be of interest to me and those I should avoid. Every step of the way he provided his advice and offered options that I had not even considered. When I finally made my way to Toronto for viewings, Gaelen was great at pointing out the pros and any potential cons of a particular unit.

In the end I found the unit for me and during the closing process, again, he was there every step of the way to answer my (numerous) questions. Now, I have moved into my new place and am loving it!

Thank you Gaelen for all of your hard work, and I will gladly recommend you to anyone looking for an agent!

As a recent addition to Toronto, I found the market incredibly intimidating and challenging to navigate on my own. Being one of the most expensive markets in North America, I thought I was going to end up with a dumpy old condo on the outskirts of town. INSTEAD, I ended up with a new-build in the hottest up-and-coming neighbourhood in the downtown core - Canary District. Gaelen helped me put together a SOLID financial plan and align my wants with reality. I would not have ended up with my future home without Gaelen. THANK YOU!!
