What Our Clients Had to Say About Working With The Brian Kondo Real Estate Team


Brian and Janice owned a gorgeous John Boddy-built home in the Eagle Ridge
community, which is one of the most desirable areas in Ajax.

When I first met them in the fall, I gave them an up-to-date home evaluation. I also
showed them how their home would be marketed with what I call “The Brian Kondo Home Selling System”. They were very prepared and had a couple pages of questions for me as well. When our meeting was finished, they were upfront and said they were meeting with what they felt were “all the top agents in Ajax”.

After they finished the interview process, I got the call all agents love to receive – that after their exhaustive search they had decided to use me and my team to sell their home.

Now, the hard work was just starting. Although they weren’t going to be listing until the New Year, I sent our stager, Jessica, in to do a staging consultation. Their home was absolutely gorgeous to begin with and probably didn’t need much updating, However, they decided to do everything Jessica suggested. Then we had Ron, our photographer, go and do the photo shoot where he prepared high-definition pictures, the virtual tour, Matterport 3D tour and floor plan that we used on the MLS as well as our marketing materials. This was important to do since I wanted nice fall shots with sunshine and green grass vs. dreary winter shots with snow and slush. To show you what I mean, check out the picture of the house above.

When the New Year rolled around, Janice and Brian surprised me. They decided it
would be a good idea to start the listing while they were away on vacation! We would use the lockbox for showings, have someone drop by the house each night to make sure lights were turned off and nothing was amiss. And I surprised them after I gave them another up-to-date evaluation. After my research I told them they should probably get much more now than what I had told them in the fall. They were very surprised but appreciated that I didn’t just go with a list price they had already agreed to just a few months earlier.

The result, we received multiple offers and sold the home on the offer date for $93,000 over the asking price! Not only that, Brian and Janice were on vacation on the other side of the world in a sunny, warm climate vs. being home in the wintertime for all the showings!

You can read what they had to say about working with my team and me below:


When we decided to put our home up for sale, we began interviewing agents. As soon as we met with Brian, we immediately knew that we had found our best match.

Brian impressed us with his unrivaled knowledge of our neighbourhood, marketing ideas and honest, straight forward attitude. He was easy to talk to, listened to our concerns and was always available to answer our questions.

In fact, we had so much trust in Brian's abilities and ethics that we were able to confidently leave the country and let Brian and his team manage every aspect of the sale. During this time, Brian communicated with us frequently (despite a 12-hour time difference!) so that we were able to stay completely informed with every step.

Not only did Brian guide us smoothly through the offer process and finalization of the sale, his business savvy, negotiating skill and absolute knowledge of every facet of real estate ensured that we got the very best price for our home.

We put our complete trust in Brian, and he didn't let us down. If fact, he exceeded every
