TestimonialsTestimonial


The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy Sellers and Buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence.

Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my professional and honest approach has earned me many good friends and very happy clients.

I truly feel so good about all these happy clients.



"The Gofman team was the best choice for my property; very professional, knowledgeble, and superior to the other "so called" leading  teams in the area! At the same time they were good listeners, they addressed my needs and they did not waste our valuable time or risk our security with unqualified business. Oh and they ensured that our property was treated with care, not one scratch or damage was found in the house. Finally they were humble, un-spoiled, yet they still had a strong confidence, ultimately leading to the results which I was looking for! I highly recommend this team!!....says John Priestly, recent 2016 Gofman client in the exclusive Toronto Cricket Club area."




"Now that we finally have time to breathe and are approaching our first week in our wonderful new home, we wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and help that brought us here! 

Throughout this usually stressful process, you’ve been so helpful, calm, knowledgeable and accommodating and took a lot of the stress out of the equation.

You were always there keeping our very best interests at heart and advised us on what was best for our growing family moving from Montreal to Toronto.

We can’t stress how important this is in itself, as we quickly realized that buying a home is a very emotional ordeal!  Having you there to be a positive and experienced sounding board was invaluable, and you quickly learned about our lives and goals to ensure we ended up in the best place for us.

You are such a hard worker, negotiating at odd hours in multiple settings, with multiple offers and sincerely fighting for your clients; for that we are very grateful. You are truly in the right profession! Thank you again." - George and Elli G.




"Imagine the stress, and overwhelming feelings of deciding you are ready to hand over a very large investment to join the ranks of the Home Buyer. I was very nervous and apprehensive when I first began. I was excited as well, but the feelings of “ what am I getting myself in to” were pretty prominent, until Julie Gofman.

Julie was a dream to work with. From start to finish, I felt completely supported, and as though Julie had my very best interests at heart. I never felt as though I was being a burden, nor asking for too much. Julie came through each day with options for me to review, as well as setting up very relevant viewings and Open House Visits. I took her very informed advice to heart, and in a relatively short time, I was able to make one of the biggest decisions of my life. I am grateful to Julie Gofman, and would confidently recommend her to anyone looking to fulfill their dream of being a home owner. Thank you Julie!" - Jemal and Nino Inaishvili. - Proud and very happy, new Home Owner!




"In Toronto's Real Estate market you have to hire the best. That is what we got when we listed with Julie Gofman.

Julie delivered above and beyond our expectations with his level of service and "No Pressure" approach. She made our selling experience comfortable, understanding that our house was our home. Julie professionally and effectively marketed our home and showed us confidence that our house would sell.

Equally Julie gave us the confidence that our Dream Home was out there and that she would help us find it. She was right every step of the way, which I credit his extensive experience, perceptiveness, and ability to really know her clients. With multiple offers on the home we bought, Julie's experience won us our Dream Home. If anyone is thinking of selling or buying I would insist they talk to Julie Gofman, it is our pleasure to recommend her to friends and family. -  Ken and Anita Cancellara




"Now that we are settled in our new home, we wanted to take a moment to say thanks to you.  From your first visit to our home last summer, we found that you were very professional. Your understanding of the market as well as your sense of what our concerns were about selling a home that we had lived in for 25 years, made our final decision to sell easier than we thought it would have been.

We were never pressured into making a quick decision but rather you advised us to take our time to carefully consider our plan to sell. Your knowledge and understanding of the real estate market trends in our area was exactly right!

Once we made the decision to go ahead and plan to sell in the following spring, your idea of doing the photo shoot while the weather was good turned out to be an excellent idea.

When the Toronto market did begin to "heat up", you were immediately in touch with us and, once the property was listed, the sale was completed in about one week.

Throughout the selling process you were readily available to us to answer any questions or concerns which we had. The offers which were received from various potential buyers were assessed by you and communicated to us in a concise and simple way.

Even after the sale was completed, you continued to assist in tying up the "loose ends" of the sale.

Your assistance to us throughout the entire selling process was handled in a very professional and considerate manner. Thanks for all that you did for us! Please feel free to use this note as a reference to any other potential sellers." - Barry and Barbara S.




"You are patient, professional and thoughtful and extremely thorough! You know  more than your stuff, you were able to see potential problems with a home and you  gladly pointed out the perks of a home.

We discussed in detail, what kind of home, in what location that I was looking for and my financial situation and ability and you respected all of it. You did not try to push me to spend more than I could, on the contrary, you always reminded me about my financial situation if ever I got a little too carried away.

I am so thankful that I chose you, Julie as my agent, you became my financial advisor, my contractor, my real estate agent and a friend. You are extremely knowledgeable about all facets involved in buying a house. The best part of it all was when it came to negotiating the price... you know your stuff so well and you are a hardcore negotiator and very realistic. If somebody reading this, they really have to call you, there is no way they will regret it! Thank-you Julie, you so much!!! -  Harry and Francine D.

 


"We have both bought and sold properties with Julie Gofman. She has the most extensive and unique approach to marketing properties of any agent we know. Julie communicates great, she is always available and she made the process totally painless and smooth- all we had to do was pack! Julie was able to secure a strong price in a very short time. We highly recommend her!!” - Esther and Barney Harris



"I've bought and sold real estate for over 20 years. I've used several agents, however now that I've worked with Julie Gofman I will never work with another agent!   What can I say? Julie gives you the straight story from when she first works on securing your listing through and work necessary post sale. She was the key influence in pricing my Lombard condo realistically. She didn't say all sorts of stuff to get my listing and then switch to other recommendations. She was flawless during several negotiations that were some of the most difficult I've been through, both the ones that fell through and the one that closed. She knows the market and can analyze the market better than any of the several Toronto brokers I know. She maximized the value of my unit through staging and presentation. For me the litmus test was that when I asked the question: "Julie, should I take this offer? If not, what counteroffer should I make?" Every time I trusted her judgment 100% and the results proved my trust in her" . Julie Gofman is the very best out of the best!!!” - Frank Bennett



"Nancy and I would like to thank you for all the hard work you did for us in selling our home at 9 Millbank and assisting us in the search and purchase of  a “downsize”.

As you are aware we interviewed several Real Estate Agents before signing on with you. From the very first meeting you seemed to understand what we were looking for in assisting us with the sale, and it was not all about the “money” - we were reluctant sellers given that we loved the house and were concerned about finding another home that we would enjoy as much. Your professionalism was evident right from the time that you set foot in our home, and given its complexity of layout and size, you were the only agent who, in the words of the Globe & Mail feature article, “got” it. So much so that you already had potential purchasers in mind for the '70’s Modern Architecture in mind, that led to a sale far more quickly than we expected or anticipated, and you obviously pegged the right value as sold for more that we expected, especially given the other agents valuations. Your personality and manner were also a major factor in us choosing your team to act on our behalf.

You also assisted in finding the right home for us to move into and we are delighted with our purchase and it is our perfect “last" home. This was no mean feat given the short closing and the fact that I was adamant that I did not want to go through two moves, by leasing until we found the right home. Your team   were also very responsive regarding some issues that arose after the deal was signed, while we were in Europe on vacation and negotiated on our behalf to sweeten the deal.

We have purchased and sold  several homes in Toronto and therefore worked with many agents - the experience with your and you team was beyond compare, especially given the emotional attachment we had to our home.” - Mervyn Blumberg




"It has been a pleasure working with you over the past several years.

As a developer who has been active in over 90 projects, we tend to be very selective on who we choose to work with in marketing and selling our projects.

We have very much appreciated your tenacity and energy in pursuing the sale of our homes and condos and providing us with strategic insight into market conditions throughout metropolitan Toronto.

You are living proof that "good things come in small packages". - Sheldon C. Fenton, RESERVE PROPERTIES LIMITED.
