When listing and selling my Toronto house, David went far and above anything I had expected. He worked tirelessly at every stage, and I was very impressed with his focused, overall client service. He came over many evenings and helped me de-clutter, and pitched in with painting and handy work. The home staging he arranged was beautiful, and I didn't even recognize this as the messy home I'd been living in. He also did unbelievable advertising, and the home sold over asking in a multiple offer situation. And I was shocked with the high price I received, as I didn't think that was even possible. I was grateful to him for all is hard work, as I was under much stress throughout. His diligent care helped alleviate much of my worries by the time the house sold. I would recommend him in a minute to anyone selling their home. He was great.

I had listed my property over a year ago, and I received no offers, and had few viewings. As soon as David started working with me, he managed to book over 35 viewings in less than a month, which excludes the number of visitors who came to the open houses David hosted on weekends. David was very reliable and ensured that I was aware of every detail concerning my property. He had to work around my tenant 's schedule, In the end, he sold my property in less than a month through multiple offers. He has been a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend David MacLean for anyone looking to buy or sell.

I had listed my home previously with another agent, and was very disappointed when I got few showings and no offers after a couple of months. Then, when I signed to work with David, my house sold without a hitch, and in only 3 weeks from re-listing with David. David came over to take not only photographs, but created a wonderful SHORT VIDEO with music to add to his unique Facebook postings - this spread quickly and was something no other Realtor had suggested. Within only a few weeks, over the New Years holiday - we had a Sale! The process went so quickly I had little time to be nervous about the entire thing! His many years of experience, combined with a great sense of humor, combined with his insight and careful advice was much appreciated. I have nothing but praise for David! Don't hesitate to sign with them - you will not be disappointed!

David, we would like to thank you for your commendable and professional management of listing, showings and finalizing the negotiations of our condo in Toronto. It was a great experience to work with you. You demonstrated an outstanding project management with absolutely effective strategy. We will recommend you to all our friends, or whoever is looking for a professional agent with the right attitude, true knowledge of real estate, marketing and customer service.

David was our real estate agent this past year, and my partner and I have been completely satisfied and happy with the process. David was an excellent listener. He always made a point to make the process a comfortable one, without pressure. With the aid of David's sense of humour, he really helped make some potentially stressful moments much easier. We've been recommending David MacLean to our friends and acquaintances, and I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a Real Estate agent.

David was there for us every step of the way and showed great empathy towards our situation. We had total confidence in his competency and really appreciated how he was able to educate us without ever talking down to us. David made the experience really enjoyable. He has excellent people skills and a great sense of humour, and it was a pleasure to spend time with him. He turned what could have been a tedious task into a memorable venture.

When I began the daunting task of buying my first home, I didn't know where to start. Enter David. He suggested we set up a meeting to discuss my needs. He established an immediate comfort and trust I had not sensed in other agents. He listened to my needs and never tried to show me something outside my comfort zone or budget. When I decided a few short months ago to sell my condo because I had recently married, my husband and I immediately knew we would use David's services again. This time I was truly blown away. Not only did we attain a purchase price much higher than we expected, but he also found a new house for us to buy well within our budget, in a neighbourhood we didn't think we could afford! I cannot go without paying homage to David's personality. His sense of humour came in handy countless times as he lightened the sometimes negative mood between me and my husband (not an easy feat) and we always felt like we were his only clients. There aren't too many real estate agents out there that assume the role more of friend than agent, but David has done just that. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling - you will not be disappointed.
