Thank you for another great testimonial Charlotte and Deen !

Michelle Makos is the real deal! Her professionalism, tenacity and infectious

enthusiasm distinguishes her from other agents. You know exactly where you stand and what to expect. Michelle went above and beyond when it came to guiding us through the process for selling our house. Our emails and phone calls were answered within minutes and it is evident that she is highly regarded by her peers. As a Director for TREB, she is extremely ethical and I witnessed first hand her educating other agents who visited our property with their clients and left our home in unsatisfactory conditions.

I have sold several properties, but I have never had an agent work harder for me. Michelle makes it abundantly clear your needs come first. She is more than an agent, she has now become a very good friend.

Thank you for the edification, support and guidance during this real estate transaction.

June 2013 – TREB Market Watch

TORONTO, July 4, 2013 — Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 9,061 sales through the TorontoMLS system in June 2013 – down by less than one per cent compared to June 2012. Over the same period, new listings were down by a greater rate than sales, suggesting market conditions became tighter. “The sales picture in the GTA improved markedly in the second quarter of 2013. While the number of transactions was still down compared to 2012, rates of decline were substantially improved compared to the first quarter,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher. “As a growing number of homebuyers, many of whom put their purchase on hold due to stricter lending guidelines, now reactivate their search, the expectation is for renewed growth in home sales in the second half of 2013,” added Ms. Usher. 

The average selling price in June was up by 4.7 per cent year-over-year to $531,374. In line with the 2013 norm, June price growth was driven by the single-detached and semi-detached market segments, particularly in the City of Toronto. Over the same time period, average condominium apartment selling prices remained in line with 2012 levels. “The short supply of low-rise home types in many parts of the GTA relative to the number of households looking to buy continued to prompt strong upward pressure on selling prices of singles and semis,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis. “We have also seen enough buyers in the better-supplied condo apartment market to provide support for selling prices at current levels.”
