Selling

Selling your property is a 24-hour a day, 7 day a week commitment that we take very seriously.

Here is a selection of the tools that we will utilize in the marketing and sale of your property:

Complimentary Staging Consultation

We will work with you to get your home showing its absolute best for the market.

Professional Photos

We have been hiring a professional photographer for our properties since 2006 when our team formed. It’s a “real estate no-brainer”.

Professional Video

Whether it is a 30 second commercial or a full, interior video tour, professional video is a powerful tool.

Drone

The surrounding area of a home is often a feature that photos from the ground can’t capture.

3D Tours

If you haven’t checked out a Matterport 3D tour yet, you must! It is the equivalent of Google Street View in a home which increases quality buyer leads.

Online

We then take the photos and video and use them in all online marketing in order to make the strongest, most positive first impression possible.

Websites

These include Realtor.ca, McGarrRealty.com, THEbTEAM.ca, LeadingRE.com, LuxuryRE.com and countless others via the affiliations and network that we along with our Brokerage are a part of.

Social

We’re active participants on the major sites. This includes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.

Print

Our Brokerage has extensive and consistent exposure in local print media including prime space in all local publications.

Open Houses

Some homes need them while others don’t. Open houses can be an important tool in increasing our market exposure for your home.

Network

We have created a strong network of clients and Realtors which we leverage in order to increase the exposure of your property.

Aventure Realty Network

One of several “invitation only” affiliations that we are proud members of, Aventure consists of over 80 high producing, independent brokerages covering over 1,200 markets across Canada.

LeadingRE

This invitation-only affiliation is the home of the world’s market-leading independent residential brokerages. With offices in over 50 countries, McGarr Realty is part of this network with over 500 firms and 120,000 associates completing over 1 million transactions valued at $321 billion annually.
