********************************************************************

"We've relied on Caroline and Ron's professionalism, integrity, market expertise and not least, their good humour, for three successful deals. "Simplify Your Move" found us the right small bungalow on a large lot with redevelopment potential (within 10 days); sold our Beaches century home (in less than a week) while setting a new street price record; and most recently through effective marketing and great negotiations in a 'multiple offers' situation, found an enthusiastic buyer for our unique Bluffs home at 99% of asking (another street record). We have absolutely no hesitation in providing a strong recommendation" Wayne & Carol July 2014

 

" We are so glad we enlisted Caroline and Ron to help us sell our house. From start to finish, their service was professional, knowledgeable and above and beyond other agents we've used in the past.Their experience is evident, and they both know the Toronto market very well. Caroline was excellent at getting the house "staged" for sale, and gave us great tips for maximizing the size and layout. Both she and Ron work very well together during the negotiation process, and we felt comfortable and confident that they were giving us the best advice and that they were looking out for us every step of the way. We would definitely choose Caroline and Ron again for our next purchase and sale, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an honest, reliable real estate team!

"My wife and I were excited but anxious prospective new home owners, looking to buy our first home in the increasingly popular market of Birch Cliff in Scarborough.

Caroline not only brought is into the world of real estate and home-buying with a delicate and steady-hand, but knew when to accelerate the process to ensure we landed in the perfect home that equally fit our budget and our needs.

We've now been in our home just over 3-months and continue to look back fondly on the home-buying process, while at the same time hearing the stresses and horror-stories of our peers and friends who look back on their first home-buying experience with other agents less fondly. I sincerely believe Caroline's approach and customer-first mindset are the reason why our experience was so pleasant, and why we'll continue to count her as our preferred real estate professional of choice." Mike H. via Linkedin

 

"Hello Caroline and Ron. We just wanted to share a few words to tell you of our appreciation for the hard work and dedication you have demonstrated while representing us for the sale of our home and purchase of our new home.  As you know we had a difficult time imagining the ease of our sale as we thought the home would be very difficult to move given the circumstances of the area we were in. You reassured us that every home can be sold and no doubt came first above the crowd in terms of professionalism and we had no second thoughts about hiring you.  I must say however, we were still in for a pleasant surprise.  You both have really gone beyond our expectations in selling our home in less than 6 weeks and at a price that was fair to the market. Having you help us during renovations and even moving certain items we were so pleased to work with you both. So, thank you and you can rest assured that we will highly recommend your services to everyone we know!" - Eric and Joanne


"Caroline helped us with the purchase of a house. As builders we were looking for something very specific and Caroline kept us abreast of what was coming on the market and was very diligent in sending appropriate homes our way. She was right on target and kept within our budget constraints. We avoided a multiple offer scenario due to her proactive and timely execution of our offer. We would recommend her highly." - M. Da Ponte and R. Morra, Bridgemont Properties Inc.

 

“Caroline tag-teamed seamlessly with agent/partner Ron to help my wife and I find our preferred property (and negotiate a fair price) in an astonishingly short period of time. As we prepare to sell, we continue to get great information, suggestions and guidance, and are looking forward to working with her again. Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity.” - W. Olson


“Both my husband and I were finding it very difficult to find a suitable home in the greater Toronto area. We spoke to Ron on a Wednesday, met him on a Saturday and by the end of the day we had found a beautiful home that met all our needs. We were shocked at how personable, professional and knowledgeable Ron was. Due to his high energy and positive attitude we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a new home. Selling homes seems effortless to Ron, because he cares and it shows through in his passion and dedication to the business.” - The Compton Family


“Caroline Ilaqua is the person who put me in the perfect retail shop. I couldn’t be happier. She knows her stuff and I am happy to say is one of the nicest people I have the pleasure of knowing. A good part of my success is clearly where Caroline found the perfect demographic and location. It’s true what they say location, location, location.” - Sharon Shoot, Wickerhead Co.

 

“The deal closed and the money is in the bank! I recently had the pleasure of having Ron Baldwin represent me in the sale of my home.  Like many of you, I wondered “what is it these real estate agents do that makes them worth the money they get?” Well I think many are not worth it but Ron certainly is.  He doesn’t merely put up a sign and wait for the commission. Ron, advertised and had Open Houses and canvassed. He addressed my every concern and that of the buyers agents. He went way above and beyond and never hesitated. He sold the house in a week and held my hand until the end in any concern that arose. I would certainly use his services again
and highly recommend him to anyone selling a home in the Toronto area…. Thanks Ron for everything!” - Debbie Newman


“I would recommend Ron to anyone requesting a great agent. I just recently offered his information to a co-worker and within a week not only did she find a new condo that suited her needs and budget she was impressed at Ron’s zest, outlook and passion for his business. Ron is a pleasure to work with and I continue to pass his contact information around without reservation. Always professional, personable and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Ron for any of your real estate needs.” - Deanne C.


“I was looking to buy a condo within a very specific, and detailed bracket. I had a lot of requests and felt that I was maybe asking too much of Ron. He never once hesitated to answer any of my questions, he was very accommodating, and gave me all the options I needed to make my decision. He was very knowledgeable and professional. Ron went to every extent to find what I was looking for, and I now am moving into my very first condo. Thank-you Ron, for all your hard work. Looking forward to doing business in the future.” - Melissa P.


"We would like to thank Ron for successfully selling our parents home in North York. When we originally put the home on the market in December 2008, there was a recession. For almost 3 months it didn't sell and we took it off the market. With Ron's advice we did some minor renovations and improvements and Caroline suggested ways that we could make the home show much better with a better presentation. In mid June we put the property back on the market and unbelievably after only 3 days back on MLS we had 5 offers. We were happy that finally there was a light at the end of the tunnel. What an exciting moment it was when had to meet the 5 agents representing the potential buyers. One by one they came in and Ron did an amazing job dealing with each of them. He was smart, methodical, friendly and very professional. We were very pleased with the end result and we gladly accepted an offer above our asking price. We are very happy again, with one less worry on our minds. We would definitely recommend Ron and Caroline, they did a fantastic job!!" - Kathy K, Mark F and Janet C.
