I met Deirdre through a friend of mine who was selling his home in Bloor West Village in Toronto. Over the years I have sold my homes in Grimsby Ontario, Guelph Ontario, Exeter Ontario, Ailsa Craig Ontario and London Ontario. In all of these sales I had never experienced the quality of realtor that I saw in Deirdre. Without exception, none of the realtors expressed interest in actually selling my homes, as, in each case, the sales did not happen quickly. Each realtor was content to let their sign on each property do the selling.Deirdre went that extra mile by showing a lot of interest in the property by paying attention to such things as presentation, advertising, group showings and client courtesy.
Bloor West Village
Our family of four was relocating after eighteen years in Los Angeles, to Toronto, and we needed a special realtor who could help us sort out the various, complicated issues we were bound to have when making a move this big. Deirdre was perfect for us. She was capable of navigating us through each step along the way and was unflappable during what were many frustrating delays for us awaiting final mortgage approval. She was always ready to show us any home we were interested in and dedicated many an hour to that. She helped us refine our search and listened to us intently in order to discern what were our most important criteria in a new home. As well, she held our hands as we made two offers on homes we did not get before finding the one we did get. And each time, she did not push or insist we do anything other than what we wanted to do. But if we needed her advice on strategy, she was always honest and forthcoming. The home we finally bought was exactly the one we needed and we believe that Deirdre was instrumental in us winning it based on her advice and her excellent relationship to the Seller’s realtor. We wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to anyone looking for a home anywhere in Toronto. Deirdre Slowey will take care of you.
What a stressful time it is, selling a home and moving on. I had found my new community and my presence was often required there for business reasons as well as for personal indulgences. Deirdre very kindly stepped into the breach to let tradespeople access my old home to do work. As well, she kept the organized and kept me informed by phone and email. Finally the house was ready to market. Even though I was bi-locating though the whole process; the open houses, the showings, the offers, and finally the sale, all went like clockwork thanks to Deirdres's good humour, kind nature, and perceptive business acumen. I am grateful to her and cannot recommend her highly enough.
“This is intended to provide assurance and testimony to the quality of service and professionalism exhibited by Deirdre Slowey, in assisting us in our relocation from New York to Toronto. What began as an incredible personal and professional opportunity for the family, quickly became a logistics, organizational and lifestyle challenge: relocating in the middle of winter, in a severely constrained real estate market. Not only did we meet the deadline and effect the change with a minimum of disruption but we rediscovered a quality of life that was greatly facilitated by Deirdre’s unyielding dedication to our move and, ultimately, our ability to “hit the ground running”. Deirdre’s availability, dedication, outstanding business acumen and ability to persevere through more than challenging conditions, made our experience feel like it was customized to our needs and that we had a true advocate in the local market, both of which are key to obtaining client satisfaction and a happy family by the end of the process. If you are looking for a consummate professional operating with the highest standards and competencies, you should consider Deirdre as your “go to“ resource in the GTA. We did and we never doubted we would get it done with her on our side
