Easy First Home Purchase!

Hi Otto,

I just wanted to thank you and Elaine for making the purchase of my very first home so easy.  I was expecting things to be challenging, but everything worked perfectly and that is in large part due to all the work that was done behind the scenes.  I now understand why both my parents talk very highly of you!

I appreciate all of your help.

Great advice on strategy and price from Joanna!

Joanna was great.  She made a point of understanding my needs and preferences for a new home and made sure that I had a selection of appropriate properties to look at.  When the time came to make an offer, she gave great advice on strategy and price.  We were fortunate that we were able to come to a relatively quick agreement on the offer.  She worked well with the other agent to ensure that everything went smoothly.  I would definitely use Joanna's services again.

The Right Choice in Choosing Otto & Elaine!

Choosing the right agent could be the most important decision you make in regards to selling your home. My wife and I have no doubts whatsoever that we made the right choice when choosing Otto Calta for that task. Partnered with Elaine Mok, their results far exceeded our expectations as to presenting our property in the best possible light and reaching a broad spectrum of potential buyers, bringing multiple offers to the table after one week of showings. In large part due to Otto's insistence on fairness and openness with all parties involved, my wife and I feel we were rewarded with the best possible value for our property, and that the new owners will appreciate and care for it the same way as we have for the last 35 years. Not only are we grateful to Otto and Elaine but also to our acquaintance who recommended Otto, and we would make no hesitation in recommending Otto and Elaine to anyone contemplating selling their home.

Strategic Advice in All Areas of Condo Ownership!

Joanna is a true professional who has offered experienced and, most importantly, strategic advice in all areas of my condo ownership. She puts all relevant factors onto the table (i.e. interest rate trents, condo/unit supply and demand, condo staging advice, advertising, government/ tax issues, etc), and provides a well laid-out and supported plan. In the end, it is your decision on how to proceed, but trust me, just trust her!

For me, Joanna helped me find a great tenant for a 2 year period, and finally helped me to sell my condo recently. To tell the truth, I was hesitant to fully trust her intuitions about the market trends, interest rates and about the scarcity of units like mine, but looking back, her thoughts were spot on, and I'm thankful that I trusted her throughout the process.

Since I haven't lived in Toronto for the last few years, I needed an agent who would be willing to go the extra mile to help out with all the knitty gritty details and also to educate me throughout the process. Joanna was patient with me, and got the job done, at the same time.

Thanks again for all your help, Jo!
