We have dealt with many real estate agents over the years, but our experience with Micheal Turk truly stands out. His full service approach included bringing in a handy man to do minor repairs and fixes, an interior decorator/stager, house cleaning and window cleaning, home inspection, professional photos, floor plans, and high quality brochures, all of which made the process much less stressful and ultimately allowed us to secure the highest price of our home. Micheal’s strategic mindset and extensive knowledge of the Toronto market resulted in the sale of our property in 6 days for $86,000 over asking. Micheal is the full package and we would highly recommend him to others.

I am happy to provide a letter of reference for Mike Turk who acted as my real estate agent in charge of selling my house in the summer 2015. Initially I have listed with propertyguys.com but my house was& not selling for several months. Mike offered me his services and although I was initially reluctant to list with an agent ultimately I was very happy to have taken this route; it was certainly worth every penny.

Mike and his team re-staged the house, re-branded the offering on MLS, and co-ordinated price reduction designed to elicit multiple offers. As a result, my house received high potential buyer interest with over 50 visits in about a week which Mike was handling, and was sold within ten days. Mike made a huge difference in terms of the house presentation and liaising with the high volume of potential buyers to an extent I would certainly not have managed myself. Mike has masterfully negotiated a sale price way above the initial offer round which I believe more than compensated for the agent fees. Mike draws on years of experience in the business and is very easy to work with. He understands the crucial details of the market and the psychology of buyers which I found invaluable. I can highly recommend his services to anyone considering selling their house.

Prior to working with Michael, I listed with another agent, for "reduced fee" reasons. But that was a big mistake. I let this first agent go after only 2 weeks due to non-performance. (I'm now a believer in "you get what you pay for" - at least when it comes to house selling.)

In any event, I couldn't believe the difference once Michael took over. Michael's MLS house pictures and descriptions were much superior over the old listing. In addition he arranged for some kind of mailing (I think 500 letters) that went throughout the neighbourhood. He also printed up pretty classy handout brochures that incorporated house/yard pictures, a floor plan, a list of neighbourhood schools, house details, etc. He put ads in the local neighbour papers. He even arranged for a "stager" walk through my house. (I didn't use him, but acted upon many of his verbal suggestions that were relevant to my situation.) At the open house events, Michael engaged the visitors talking up the house. (Always dressed up in a suit and tie I might add.)

Bottom line, he did an absolutely fantastic job. Through his efforts I received a number of offers. It was Michael's plan to list at 699K, and accept offers on a later date to encourage competition. Using that strategy I know I got the highest price possible. And yes - I was very pleased with the 729K figure.

So that's my honest opinion. He knows the business inside out and he's aggressive - yet professional. I'm happy to recommend him to you.

All the best in your house sale.

Dear Micheal:

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your competence in selling the condo …

Particularly I want to congratulate you on your professional approach and deligence in selling this condo in one week from the time you first listed it. I am sure your hard work in advertising it and having open houses had a bearing on its quick sale. On top of this you were able to get a premium on our asking price.

It has a been a pleasure for D.. and I to have done business with you.

Dear Micheal,

We are writing this letter to thank you for the sale of our property. We are very pleased with the results, especially how quickly and seemingly painless the whole process was. Both of us were not looking forward to have our home on display for what we expected to be weeks or months. I am sure many people who have sold their homes can relate to this feeling. However, from our first meeting with you, you anticipated that you would sell our property within one week or so. We thought this would not be possible and was more than likely a “sales pitch” from someone hoping to receive our business. As it turned out this was not the case.

Our home was listed on Monday and by Friday we were receiving not one but two separate offers, one of which we accepted that evening.

We were extremely pleased to sell our home within four days of listing it and for an amount that was 104% of our asking price.

At all times you were professional, knowledgeable and explained the aspects of the process to us in a clear and concise manner. You did exactly what one would hope for in the sale of their property - You sold it quickly and for more than the asking price.

Once again, thank you for representing us and best of luck in your future business.

T.S. & L. M.

Dear Micheal:

Thank you for selling our house on 60 F…..Blvd. After listing our property three different times with three different Realtors and having it not sold we were frankly a little skeptical of the whole process and unsure whether you would be any different form other Realtors.

We were pleasantly surprised when you sold our house only in 3 weeks after taking over the listing.

Thank you for a job well done.
