Parents help out Daughter with home purchase

My wife and I decided to help our daughter with the purchase of a condo in Toronto. Liora and Daniel had been working with our daughter researching the housing market for quite a while and had found a desirable listing located in the Davenport and Dupont area. The initial offer was submitted mid afternoon on a Saturday. Liora and Daniel prepared the offer promptly and closed the deal with minimal counter-offers later that afternoon. We have dealt with many real estate agents over the years.  They handled the whole process like seasoned veterans.  Daniel and Liora are very personable agents who were able to address all our concerns in a prompt and efficient manner.

 

Tem Bloch's exceptional service was quite impressive. It was a pleasure to work with them as our agents for this sale and we would not hesitate to refer them to our family and friends in the future for a purchase or sale or both.  Please convey my sincerest thanks and appreciation to Team Bloch for their commendable efforts during a very important phase of our daughter's life.

"Daniel,

We wanted to thank you again for making the search for our new home so much fun. You took the trouble to understand our needs and gave us your time and attention and professional advice. We never felt rushed and if you could believe it- you made the buying process actually fun. We found you to be down to earth and extremely responsive and hope to keep in touch for a long time. We will definitely have no problem referring you to anyone who is looking... Thank you! Nicole & Maggie"

Non Active Buyer who waited for the right property to come along

"I first met Daniel Bloch during an open house for a townhouse on Queen St. West last year. I was immediately impressed by his professionalism, organization and knowledge. Since then, Daniel was relentless trying to find a new home for me and my family. He clearly understood what we were looking for and was able to give excellent advice on the pros and cons of every property we looked at. We recently purchased a new construction townhouse that we originally were not going to look at if it wasn't for Daniel's persistence. He is very organized, takes care of every detail and answers emails immediately. It has been a very easy and painless experience working with Daniel. We are looking forward to a similar experience this spring when we list our current townhouse for sale with him."

"Dear Liora,

When we finally decided to put our home on the market, we were challenged with the decision of whom to retain as Real Estate Agent for the task. We are satisfied that we made the correct choice when we called you and you agreed to take on the job. You immediately informed us of all the important and relevant issues relating to the sale of the house, assisted us in the determination of the asking price and promptly assisted us with the preparation of our home for coming to market. Although we had our large dog and a cat in the house, you facilitated showings and made the process easy for prospects and agents to visit the home. Your marketing materials were outstanding and we feel sure that they resulted in the eventual successful sale of our property. You really "worked" the market and managed to have three offers being presented for our consideration, resulting, ultimately in our getting top price for our home. Congratulations on your professionalism and thanks for all your hard work. Please feel free to show this letter to anyone considering the sale of their home."

Yours sincerely,

Stephen Macneill

First Time Home Buyer

"I am writing you to express our great satisfaction with service that Daniel Bloch provided to us as a real estate agent. Daniel has always been there for us, answering all our many questions. He was always accommodating to us when we need him. His warm attitude, laughter and happy smile will be greatly missed. He is very straightforward and really knows his business. The experience we’ve had looking for a condo with Daniel has been a fun and enjoyable one. This was our first place to purchase, and I can guarantee you that I would recommend Daniel Bloch to anyone."

Recent Sold Condo

"I recently engaged Daniel Bloch of Century 21 to represent the sale of my Condominium Unit. Daniel truly did an excellent job selling my property. Daniel is very ambitious, and has a wealth of knowledge of the Toronto residential real estate market. Daniel went above and beyond my expectations by hosting multiple open houses and following up with me at a minimum of twice weekly to inform me of the status of the property and the feedback from potential purchasers. I ended up selling for 99% of the asking price. Daniel had managed to bring me a clean offer, with a large deposit and the deal was done almost instantly, I recommend Daniel to home owners who seek a true partner to sell their property."

Growing Family

"Dear Liora:

As you know, the purchase of our home was our first real estate transaction and we were most anxious about the process and the task of finding a suitable home for our young and growing family. When we met, you took the entire load onto your shoulders, giving us the necessary comfort and peace that we needed to be confident about what we were doing. Although you explained everything to us, you continued to manage the entire process on our behalf and we were, at all times, pleased that our interests were in your good hands. You showed us many homes; not an easy task considering that it all had to be done outside of normal business hours and fitting in with our domestic schedule. When we finally found the right home, you helped us with the offer and negotiations and again, we were delighted that you managed the entire process on our behalf. Working with you was always a pleasure. You are a real professional and are absolutely determined to achieve your client's objectives. This was exactly what we needed, working in a difficult market with so few suitable properties available. Once again, thank you for all your efforts. We will be happy for you to show this letter to anyone contemplating a sale or purchase of real estate. You were an absolute pleasure to work with during the whole process, and you certainly did take the stress away by dealing with all the issues one faces in purchasing a home. 

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan and Zelda Frydman
 

 

Property Management

"I have known Daniel for three years both in the capacity of realtor and property manager.  Daniel’s drive and dedication to deliver on promises to his client are what set him apart I believe from other agents in the business.

      

Daniel delivers a bespoke product depending on the needs of the client rather than simply employing a fixed package of goods offered by the firm.  There may be other agents in the business with more experience, but I challenge any to match the high standards Daniel sets himself once he has your business.  You can expect honesty and integrity throughout the process. He will also go out of his way to make what can often be a stressful experience as relaxing and organized as possible.

      

I would not hesitate to recommend Daniel in any capacity either in the realty business or any other.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions regarding this letter of recommendation."

"Daniel is tenacious and professional. I'd definitely work with Daniel again and recommend him to anyone purchasing a home in the GTA!


Being a first-time homebuyer in the frenzy market of 2009 was no easy task. Daniel's responsive and non-pressuring approach made us very comfortable.  He sourced and showed us over 150+ properties across the GTA over a span of 5 months until we purchased our home. 
Working with Daniel was a very positive experience!"

Relocation with short closing & financing

"We first started corresponding with Daniel via email from South Africa after seeing his ad in the local Jewish Report. Daniel was immediately willing to begin looking for something for us to rent as we were arriving in Toronto with 3 large dogs and finding a place to rent was proving difficult for us. Despite it being 6 months before our landing,
Daniel made an effort to be in constant contact. Daniel walked us through the entire process, even to the point where we were ready to sign on a house but at the last minute we decided to buy something instead. From the minute we arrived Daniel was available to us, setting days aside to drive us around Toronto looking at various houses and neighbourhoods and spending hours scouring the property listings. Daniel
knew within no time exactly what we were looking for and quickly narrowed the search down. What impressed us was Daniel's ability to read the market and a potential sale especially in this difficult time when listings have been slow. He was not scared to advise us to walk away when he felt a potential sale was becoming unrealistic. We found Daniel to be exceptionally patient with us in our quest to find the right home.
When we finally did, he assisted with the legalaties and in resolving minor issues. Daniel also played a huge role in putting us in touch with an excellent mortgage broker thereby helping us set up bank accounts, obtain credit and insurance and that was way beyond his job description. Daniel makes an effort and we would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell, especially those new to Toronto."

Relocation to Canada from South Africa

"I was introduced to Daniel some 6 months ago while we were still in South Africa. I communicated with Daniel via e-mail where we set out our property requirements in terms of type of home, location, access to schools, shops and parks. During this time Daniel provided us with electronically posted advertisements of these properties which gave us some ideas as to what we would be purchasing.


On our arrival in Canada, Daniel went out of his way to chauffeur us around from home to home showcasing the shortlist that we had provided him beforehand. Daniel at all times remained patient and optimistic and was always available to answer any questions and assist even in areas outside of the property discipline. This involved providing us with lists of local service providers that would assist the family with our transition to Canada. Daniel was always looking after our interests and provided an excellent service. I would highly recommend anyone moving to Canada to contact Daniel as you will be receiving 'world class service."

Tough Listing in a Tough Market

"Hi Daniel, thanks again for your superb work on the sale of my home.  You have very unique negotiating skills and a talent for keeping buyers on track and fully engaged.  Not only did you manage to sell a tough listing in a tough market, you sold my home at a benchmark price while comparable properties on the street sold below their value.  I was extremely happy with the outcome.
 
Thank you again for everything."

"Daniel was very thorough in finding my perfect home when I arrived in Toronto. We explored many townships - north, east and west, until we finally found the right place. I commend Daniel on his patience, and his quick action in securing the deal."

Diane Stafford

Another First Time Home Buyer

"Daniel Bloch represented us as our real estate agent in the search and purchase of our first home. We were looking for condos and town homes and were searching in a very hot market, with many buyers and bidding wars.

 

Daniel was able to show us several properties, some at very short notice, and within a few months we found the property we loved. Daniel worked out the deal for us and secured a price that was lower than asking, even in this tough market, where every property was being sold for over asking.

 

Daniel was very organized throughout this process and we would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a property."

 

Sincerely,

Sara & Ary

Lack of inventory

"We had met Daniel through one of his listings, and that one not being the one for us, Daniel had assured us that there was one in the area that was, however the market at the time had no quality available to us, through constant canvassing and an agressive drive to make things happen, Daniel had found us a home in the area which we had bought through him the day he listed it, he had called us up the day of and said, YOU NEED TO SEE THIS! We are very happy and will use and recommend his services to anyone who might be looking for a new home."

Finding a unique home with wheelchair access

"Dear Daniel,

From the peace and quiet of our condo where we are almost completely settled, we can look back at what could have been two testing experiences and we can see how your skill, knowledge, experience and personality all combined to minimize the trauma of being forced for health reasons to sell our house and find a condo that would meet the requirements of my mobility problems. Our friends recommended you in glowing terms. Our assessment is that they understated things. It was a pleasure to work with you because you took the problems from us and promised to resolve them. You carefully guided us in setting a selling price for our house and in selecting one of the offers which exceeded that price. You spent a very considerable amount of time selecting condos to visit and in tabulating their pros and cons and relating them to our very special needs. You then gave us a masterful analysis of how the asking price of our condo compared to previous sales in this building over a period of many years. That became the case for your successfully negotiating the purchase of our new home at a price which we believe was what we had to offer to conclude the deal. Please feel free to use this letter and to refer potential clients to us for further comments. Thank you again for smoothing the path of a very difficult milestone in our lives."

Sincerely,

Rob & Linda Babos

 


 

 

Closing Date

"Dear Daniel,

While surrounded by boxes and all the other paraphernalia of moving, it struck me just how painless you made the selling of my house. You made me feel that I was dealing with a friend whom I could trust and not just another sales agent. I would definitely recommend you to any prospective client in the future."

 

Kind regards,

Ari Fisher

 


 

Listed, Sold (deal fell through) Purchased, Re-Listed & Sold Again.

"We have known Daniel Bloch since approximately May 2008 when I first contacted him from South Africa to assist with finding either a rental or property to purchase in Toronto. From the moment we began communicating, Daniel proved himself to be an exceptionally willing, knowledgeable and competent realtor. Once settled in Toronto Daniel immediately got to work looking for a suitable home for us to purchase and spent countless hours driving both me and my partner around Toronto, explaining the various neighborhoods, the subtle nuances and learning what we were looking for. After a search of approximately 50 houses Daniel was instrumental in helping with the purchase of our first home in Cabbagetown and went as far as to recommend an excellent lawyer and other contractors that we needed to do some renovations on the house. 



Knowing that we both have a keen interest in property motivated Daniel to keep in touch with us, always sending interesting sales information in the neighborhood or links to houses for sale that we might like to see and when the time came to sell our home there was no hesitation in asking Daniel to be the agent on record. Our house went on to the market during a very difficult economic time and Daniel persevered through countless showings and never once refused to hold an open house. He made constructive suggestions to make the house attractive to potential buyers and provided feedback on an ongoing basis. During this time Daniel also started making efforts to source a new home, now fully understanding exactly what we were looking for. Again, Daniel took time to drive us around, send sales and other information and was easily able to identify homes that we would or would not be interested in. Our house sold for asking price with a firm offer and no conditions. Unfortunately approximately 6 weeks prior to closing, Daniel was notified by the purchaser that he was not going to close despite us having a firm agreement of purchase and sale. For the next 6 weeks, Daniel acted as the mediator and liaison between us, the defaulting purchaser and multiple attorneys through what was an incredibly stressful and tension-filled time. Daniel always acted professionally, with courtesy and always with our best interests at hand even while he was travelling out of the country. During this time we had purchased another property that Daniel had successfully negotiated and when we had to quickly re-sell our house Daniel acted fast and in no time was able to successfully negotiate another firm sale with no conditions for a similar selling price. We suffered a significant financial loss due to this occurrence and without Daniel’s action and marketing efforts would have found ourselves in a situation where we may have had to default on the house we had purchased.

Daniel continues to maintain contact, still sending us information and always keeping us up to date with what is going on in the property market. We look forward to a continued and successful relationship with Daniel in the future."

 

Sincerely,
Lawrence Reiter
