In my first time buying a house, Nazir was incredibly professional, diligent and reliable. After doing much research online, through books and through word of mouth, I was able to determine Nazir was the right agent. Our initial meeting made me feel he was honest, knowledgeable and professional. He explained to me the process of buying a house, many of the frustrations I would encounter and gave me information on the current market. We pounded out a contract and a list of key locations I was interested in. Listings started to pour inot my email and I was anle to select a list of locations I was interested in within the week. Nazir was easily available to take me to these locations at my convenience. At time, I would only give home a half a days notice and he would be able to set up meetings quickly. We encountered the frustrations of a bomming sellers market and multiple bids on each house that I was interested in. However, thanks to his information and encouragement, I was prepared for this. He helped me make informed rational decisions rather than decisions based on emotions. We were looking at 6-8 houses every week and making bids if it matched my prefrences. After about 1.5 months of searching I finally landed a house I was extremely happy with. Nazir and I made a solid bid and was awarded the house. I would recommend Nazir to anyone looking to buy a house. He has many years of experience and is able to guide one through the buying process. He is reliable, honest, and listens closely to what you want. Overall I was extremely happy with his services and will be making recommendations to others in the future.

Nazir Shivji of Century 21, Percy Fulton Ltd has been our real estate agent since 2002. During the past six years we have purchased three properties through him, all of which we still retain. Throughout the years of dealing with Nazir, he exhibited a high degree of personal initiative, with an extraordinary ability to quickly understand our needs. He is always the ultimate professional who goes over and above his call of duty. The hallmark of Nazir's working style is thoroughness coupled with efficiency. He has distinguished himself as a highly capable and efficient real estate agent, often extending his working hours to fit our schedules. Should I ever need to purchase properties in the future I will not hesitate to contact Nazir again, and he has my highest personal recommendations.

The guru of real estate! Both my husband and I are ultimately thrilled with our interaction with Nazir from the moment we met, Nazir asked the right questions, sourced our desires in the type of home we were looking for and educated us regarding the real estate market! As first time home buyers we were a little nervous, after our first meeting with Nazir all of our questions were answered in detail. Absolutely professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated. Nazir fufilled and exceeded our criteria towards the homes we viewed; he encompasses a confident and competent demeanor that places and home buyer at ease. We were so fortunate to fine our dream home in less than 2 weeks!! We highly recommend Nazir for any real estate transactions and we have truly enjoyed working with him. Thank you Nazir for helping us find our dream home!

Dear Nazir, We wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping us with the sale of our house. We are retired and the money will be very helpful in our later years. You always had our interest at heart. You sold our house for the best price, found us a condo and made sure the transition was smooth and painless. You are sincere and dedicated to doing the right thing. We find that a rare quality these days. We has several offers and the professionalism you showed when dealing with the other realtors and through the whole process was exemplary to say the least. Your many years of experience is quite evident when working with you. It has been a pleasure to know you. We are looking forward to inviting you for a drink to our condo.

Dear Nazir, I wish to tell you how pleased I was with your professional services as an agent when you sold my North York apartment last August. I have particularly appreciated all the process and you made things easy for me. You wre phoning me as soon as there was something new coming or something for me to do, and you were calling me back promptly, where ever you were, when I was asking information or directions. The truth is that I felt I had a friend helping me all along. This friendliness is a precious quality you have, as well as being able to transmit your optimism. You also gave me valuable information I needed, such as the names of a few lawyers for me to choose from. So thank you for everything! I would certainly recommend your professional services to anyone I know who wants to sell his residence (I was pleased with the price of the sale as well).

The President, Century21 Percy Fulton Ltd. I just wanted to acknowledge Mr. Nazir Shivji from your office. We had the privilege to work with him when had decided to sell our house. He was most patient and a true professional. He listened to our demands and set out to do exactly what he had to do to achieve our goals. He is an expert in the Real Estate space and very knowledgeable in other related areas including financing which makes his advice workable and based on facts. Nazir earned our respect as a professional after our first interaction with him because of his pure integrity, true knowledge and care for his clients. He listened attentively and advised us on our options. He was responsive and very prompt in answering the phone and acting on requests to provide information to clarify our thoughts. Nazir's integrity and selflessness is without measure! He chose to provide us with the best solution that worked for our family without rushing to make a quick gain! We would like to thank Nazir, for all he did for our family. Wish him the best. Sid Saadaoui

I had the pleasure of utilizing Mr Nazir Shivji's expertise in the field of real estate. His professional attitude and ability to feel the gestalt of his customers' wishes without forgetting attention to detail makes him an exceptional agent. He is able to relate to his clients' not only on a professional but personal level creating a comfort zone that allows dreams to materialize. His positive energy is contagious and inspiring, leaving the client with more than just great service and a sense of satisfaction. A house is more than a purchase, it is the realization of home where people share their lives and find happiness. Mr Shivji is an agent who is the path to not just a house, but your home. I would recommend Mr Shivji without hesitation.

It is rarely that I find the need to write a letter of "Thanks" as I feel that old world civility, courtesy and true care for customers must surely be these days "a thing of the past"!I am recently widowed retired women who had worked for the Coroner's Office downtown Toronto for some 20 years and have lived in my home here is Scarborough for over 30 years. When a friend of mine gave me Mr. Shiviji's phone number, I had already seen three other "Real Estate Agents" and did not hold much hope of finding the right person upon whom to entrust one my life's biggest decisions.I was indeed delighted to find out that Nazir was very knowledgeable and had done his "homework" and was able to answer all of my questions, never once taking the "easy way out" or promising me "the sky" or misrepresenting any aspect of the transaction. He explained fully all the details involved and was very courteous and patient with my many questions, and knowing that I was just 'shopping around' at the time.I chose Nazir as my Real Estate agent because of his professionalism and ceaseless efforts, as well as for his personality and good-natured way of handling my concerns with respect and care. I'd consider him to be one of the most knowledgeable real estate agents I've ever met- and his good spirits and love of his work was obvious, and a deciding factor. H is definitely an asset to your company.Anyways, I just wanted to thank Nazir on my behalf and to express my satisfaction with his excellent work in selling my house, and to assure you that I will certainly be passing his name around to friends.

After going through tons of research for the right broker and talking to family and friends we found Nazir's profile and experience very interesting. Other reviews had noted him as very knowledgeable, energetic, patient and professional. We had an initial meeting to assess if we could work together and we decided to go ahead with him. During the initial meeting he went through all the details of the process from start to end and listened to what we had in mind. He started working right away. What really impressed me was his responsiveness and promptness. After each showing he would do a quick review and give us an overview of the neighborhood, the house and the price. He communicates promptly using text, emails or phone. Within a month we had found a perfect home and Nazir negotiated the best price and terms for us. We observed that he was completely working with our needs in mind. Since we were first time buyers we had lots of questions and he always answered so that we understood. In summary we had a great experience finding our first home in Toronto. Nazir made the whole process easy and comforting. We highly recommend his expertise and guidance to any one looking to buy or sell real estate in the GTA. Thank you Nazir for helping us find exactly what we had in mind. Murali Parakat.
