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!

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!

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.

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!

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.
