Hi Everyone and welcome to the first edition of the Duke Pod: Real Estate stories. I have been in the Real estate industry for 8 years. I consider myself at times a storyteller and let me tell you we are in a lot of real estate situations that lead to an experience. I am here to tell these stories that I find interesting and hope you do too, for sure you will learn something! These situations can be positive as most of them are neutral or stories about what NOT to do. I can tell you that being in the industry for almost 8 years and closings hundreds of real estate transactions over the years, we have seen it all. It makes me wish I had started this podcast years ago when I was making a lot of mistakes and getting myself in ALL kinds of fun situations. Come check some out!

Greetings,

 

We hope everyone is staying nice and warm as the weather is now in single digits, yikes! This episode we explore how two buyers who in many ways are similar could have two completely different perspectives and approaches to buying a home.  Each of them with different results.  One went really swimmingly, they are really happy and the other one is still, still a long work in progress.  Where did they go wrong, where did we go wrong?!  Let us explore and find out!

Greetings,

In this episode, we have our first interview!  A mutual friend put me in contact with Camila Soares, an employee from Intuit that was looking to interview small businesses.  This interview explores some background information about me, my family and my Real Estate career.  We also explore what happened to the real estate market this year as it took a roller coaster ride due to the pandemic, seemingly just like everything else.  This is a fun interview that is not too lengthy and has plenty of insights in the world of Real Estate as it pertains to the Greater Toronto Market.

In the 10th episode, we go over a few issues that happen on the day of the closing.  I refer to this episode as the week before closing as there are a flurry of things buyers and seller prepare for and hope it all goes smoothly.  When we are on the buying side we hope the house is left clean, empty and ready to enjoy, however sometimes that is exactly what does not happen.  We discuss a few important strategies to keep in mind when we are about to close a home and go over some basic tips.  We also sprinkle in some fun stories that will help you understand what you may be in for if you DO NOT follow these suggestions!

 

Enjoy!

Greetings,

Welcome to episode 9 and what seems like the (Very, surely) last day of Summer on this Monday, September 28th.  In this episode, I reflect on the last time I had a full weekend off.  We discuss how sometimes business and family can mix and how it can clash.  

One of the unknowns about my job is when meeting new people, especially buyers that you meet in one way or another and you just do not know how motivated they are.  Even what time of people they will be, or are they even serious about real estate?  We explore some stories about some "buyers" we met and how this huge deal turned out with these buyers I know nothing about, yet needed them for a massive sale!

Enjoy this episode and have a wonderful October coming up!

Greetings, In this episode, we reflect on a random encounter I had with a person 7 years ago which led to a huge potential sale over the weekend and other sales over the years.  The sale of their home and the clients came with many challenges and needed a lot of services.  A lot to talk about there.   Meeting people has become a trend for a business no matter how random, after all when life gives you lemons you have to make lemonade!  At the end of the episode, we look at how meeting people in the most random occasions has gone full circle and how to always be ready to take advantage.

Hi Everyone,

On Monday August 17 my wife and I were able to introduce baby Zoey to the world, our first and only daughter to match our 3-year-old son! With that in mind, this 4th instalment of the podcast regarding real estate stories will be centred around children!
