When my husband and I decided to sell our home after two decades, we felt a certain degree of trepidation. Whether downsizing or simply needing more space, change is change. It can be daunting. Under the umbrella brokerage firm of Sage Real Estate Ltd., Home Sweet Karyn turned out to be the perfect fit. From the outset both Karyn Filiatrault and Hillary Lane were totally committed to helping us navigate the process of downsizing to a more manageable space, followed by selling our 2.5 storey semi in Toronto. The degree of professionalism they exhibited exceeded all of our expectations. After a relatively short time Hillary found the perfect place for us to call home. Next came the process of selling our existing house. Karyn Filiatrault along with her professional contacts did an amazing job which included staging, top-notch photos as well as a virtual tour. Staging played a key part in the process, with the best features of our century old home being highlighted. Hillary, Karyn and the professional stager took into consideration the character of our home. The end result only served to enhance its features. Best of luck to those considering getting into the housing market for the very first time, or individuals like us who are thrilled with the process of downsizing. Serendipity contributed to our personal story which we believe was made possible through the ongoing efforts of our team.
