When we decided to sell our first home, we were primarily concerned with the amount of work the process would entail. Calvin was able to guide us step-by-step through the entire process, which kept an otherwise overwhelming undertaking quite manageable and straightforward.
Calvin’s experience and expert advice reassured us when we had doubts, and gave us realistic expectations about pricing and timeline.
Calvin made every effort to optimally market our home, which included the hiring of a professional home stager and a professional photographer at no extra cost.
The result was our home looking better than it ever had, and selling in just 2 weeks at the higher end of the expected market value.
Calvin definitely comes with our highest recommendation to anyone looking for an excellent real estate agent to sell their home.

To whom it may concern,
Calvin has sold property for me in the past and I have always appreciated his level of professionalism and attention to detail.
Most recently, when my wife and I were considering selling our home, I contacted Calvin to get his advice due to his great knowledge of the market. After presenting us with a wealth of information, Calvin graciously allowed us the time to consider our options.
Once we decided to sell our home, we gave ourselves a short period of time to sell, and we were going to be listing our home in a traditionally slower buying period of the year. I had no hesitation in deciding to work with Calvin, given the challenges of our listing.
Calvin immediately understood our needs, updated us on the current market trends/activity, suggested improvements to best present our home in a short period of time, presented pricing options and marketing strategies. Even though we gave Calvin a very short time frame, he kept us well informed of our options and of the process.
We are very happy that as a result of Calvin’s strategy, we received multiple offers on our listing and we were able to sell our home for higher than asking price. We are very appreciative of Calvin’s abilities and would not hesitate to work with him again in the future.
When my husband and I decided to sell our home, the first person we thought of was Calvin. Throughout the entire process he demonstrated professionalism and guided us through from pre-sale to post. Calvin significantly exceeded our expectations by selling our home within a week at 102.55% of our asking price.
Anyone considering moving should speak with Calvin first. He provides honest feedback and guidance every step of the way. My husband and I plan on moving back in 2015 and will once again be speaking with Calvin at that time.

I’ve known Calvin for over 10 years now and I contacted him to help with both the purchase and sale of my condo. His patience and thoroughness during the purchase process exceeded my expectations and was ultimately the reason why I contacted him when it was time to sell. Calvin was clear, honest, helpful and a wonderful advocate for me throughout the selling process.
His expertise and professionalism helped me to prepare my home in a way to show beautifully and as a result it sold quickly and for a great price. Calvin’s ability to be both a friend and an agent made what could have been an extraordinarily stressful process, an easy and successful one. I have recommended Calvin to friends and colleagues without hesitation and will of course be contacting him for all my future real estate needs.
I spoke with a number of agents, but Calvin was the one who I saw as the most genuinely honest and experienced in the business.
As a first time buyer I really didn’t know what to look for besides a gut feeling I got from being inside the place. I found that Calvin was able to determine my preferences correctly and help me pick out details from the listing as well as on site, which translated into myself being able to save a lot of time and effort.
What was perhaps the biggest benefit to me was his patient and purposeful explanations of my many questions. He ensured I knew all of my options with each new situation that had come up. I never felt like I was confused or in over my head, but rather always aware and in command.
The most impressive part was the negotiating. The offer was put together within 24 hours of the home being on the market. We ended up winning against a competing offer!
Working with Calvin was like working with a highly knowledgeable friend. I would recommend him to any of my own family or friends knowing that he will take care of them entirely.
A friend referred me to Calvin when buying my first home. As someone new to the real estate market, Calvin was extremely helpful and professional in ensuring that I understood every aspect of the process.
I have very rarely, if ever, worked with someone so dedicated to their client’s needs. Calvin’s attention to detail and integrity stood out and were extremely welcome; I felt I count on Calvin to give unbiased and detailed feedback on any questions regarding a listing.
When the time came to actually put an offer in on a home, Calvin made himself available no matter what time it was to ensure that the paperwork was completed promptly and correctly. I have no qualms in saying that I feel that Calvin’s preparation here was pivotal in ensuring that I got the home I wanted at the price I wanted.
Finally when I needed to consult somebody on other topics, such as to find financing or to do the home inspection, Calvin was able to recommend extremely good people for me to consult with on those topics.
The entire process from start to finish went extremely smoothly, and I would thoroughly recommended Calvin to anyone who is looking to purchase a home.
Calvin has a systematic approach to viewing each home, and a sharp eye for fine details. He always took the time to provide great insight into each home we saw–pointing out many things that our untrained eyes would have otherwise missed. Calvin always disclosed the pros and cons of each potential home, and we never felt like he was pushing for a quick sale, but rather, that he was genuinely concerned with helping us find the right home for our family.
Through his guidance, we were prepared for each step of the process. We will not hesitate to hire Calvin again in the future.

Calvin Weinfeld has assisted me and my husband on three separate occasions, and we would never use anyone other than Calvin to assist us. Calvin takes the time to fully understand our needs. He really listens and cares. Calvin has incredible attention to detail. He has become more than our real estate agent man – Calvin is our trusted advisor.
He has consistently provided us with great advice on pricing & negotiation. He builds relationships rather than simply completing transactions. He is always professional while at the same time personal.
Calvin’s understanding of the market and experience makes him a valuable partner. He goes above and beyond the basic services of an agent and always exceeds our expectations. Calvin always has our best interest at heart.
Again, we will never use anyone other than our trusted advisor, Calvin Weinfeld.
Thank you very much for all your hard work in helping us with the sale of our home. Your level of professionalism and consistency made our experience working with you very easy and stress free. You provided us with some great advice, and with an excellent marketing program you were able to get our home the attention it needed on the market. You kept us well informed during the negotiating process and were able to get our condo sold for top market value. Thank you for everything and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

We are writing to express our gratitude for your help in selling our home.
Having not sold a home before, it was a daunting proposition, but your professionalism, courtesy and knowledge of the market made it much easier.
We especially appreciated your experience when it came to preparing our home for viewing and then to negotiating the offers we received and keeping us abreast of our options at all times.
Richard and Raven Lowden
We really appreciate working with you, Calvin, you are a complete star as a realtor. You’re principled, exceptionally hard-working, and I am especially impressed by your patience and ethical standards. Your coaching & support allowed us to make an informed decision.
Thanks again for your support, Calvin. You are fantastic. If it wasn’t for your help in this process Jennie and I would probably be divorced or I would have disappeared under mysterious circumstances by now. 🙂
Jason Applebaum & Jennie Lai
Calvin brought to the table a level of professionalism unlike anything I have seen before. He took the time to truly understand our needs and wants for the future and was genuinely interested in making sure he understood everything about us.
Our deal was fairly precise in what price we needed for the house in order to put together the next deal; we had a short period of time to sell and Calvin’s attention to detail would really be tested here. He gave us great advice on pricing and negotiating.
Calvin kept us well informed of our options and the process and put together an excellentmarketing program. His knowledge of the market place is extensive and he used that knowledge to make accurate predictions throughout the negotiating process.
In the end Calvin got us over market value for our home and we are very pleased with his follow up service and communication.
We will use Calvin again and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.

We are writing to express our gratitude for your help in purchasing our home inOakville.
We did not know the area particularly well at the time, but your understanding of our needs, and experience and knowledge of the market helped us narrow our search, and ultimately find exactly what we wanted, within our budget and timeframe.
We especially appreciated the way you gave us your opinions without forcing them upon us.
When it came to making an offer, you needed to act quickly on our behalf whilst continuing to keep us informed of the process and our options at all times. You did this by always being available, and by continued communication and follow-up.
We are very happy in our new home, thanks again.

Absolutely A Pleasure
Having used Calvin as our realtor twice now, we can say with utmost confidence that he is absolutely a pleasure to work with. Calvin helped us sell our home recently in record time. Prior to putting the property on sale, we got great advice about how to get the maximum value for our property. Calvin had an excellent marketing program and demonstrated great professionalism all through the process. Calvin was always attentive to our needs and kept us informed all through the process. We would recommend Calvin without hesitation and intend to use his services again ourselves in the future.

This year, we turned to Calvin to act on our behalf to sell our property. While, we chose a period in which the real estate market had experienced a drop in selling prices, Calvin’s knowledge on the market underlined his optimism that the property would sell. He & his associates were in touch on a regular basis and kept us well informed of viewings and buyer feedback. The property sold for a high percentage of the asking price.

” Well, we’ve been in our new home for just over two weeks now and simply put – we absolutely love it. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent service you delivered from start to finish.
For starters, Jordana and I really appreciated your knowledge of both the real estate market and the buying process. We can definitely say this was an educational process, and you were an excellent teacher. Your level of professionalism and ability to grasp our needs gave us the confidence to enter the market for the first time, and the support and advice you provided during negotiations definitely eased some of the typical anxiety associated with this process.
We look forward to living and enjoying our new home for many years to come. However, when the time does come to move on, we’ll also look forward to your assistance and services once again. “
Selling in this Difficult Market
” Thank you so much for everything. I admit I had some concerns about selling in this difficult market, but we managed to sell in 17 days at 98% of asking price, when the average selling time these days is much longer.
Your hard work negotiating on my behalf, knowledge of the market, and professionalism are greatly appreciated.
You said you would do it and you did it! “
” I’d like to express my sincere thanks for your assistance with the recent sale of my home. From our initial introduction through to the closing of the sale you offered endless service, support, market knowledge and the utmost professionalism for the duration of the process.
I realize my property was an above average challenge to market due to its close proximity to the neighboring highway in addition to a pre-Christmas listing. The extra effort complimented by Calvin’s marketing experience was very comforting.
This was apparent as we achieved a high percentage of the aggressive asking price. Thank you for an informed, stress free, positive experience and successful sale of my home. “

” The first time I spoke with Calvin Weinfeld, he told me that he didn’t think a real estate purchase had to be the most stressful event in life but one of the most enjoyable. I came to realize that it was possible.
Key to reducing stress and uncertainty is knowledge. To this end, Calvin believes in thoroughly preparing his clients for a successful real estate transaction. He did this by explaining his roles and responsibilities as well as mine, outlining the real estate process and my options, and describing the current real estate market and where my requirements and resources placed me within it.
I believe trust in your real estate agent is essential, and I left my first meeting with Calvin with the feeling that I trusted him implicitly. This was valuable when viewing properties and I had to rely on Calvin’s knowledge and experience to evaluate them. Trust was also important during the negotiation and close of my purchase, which was handled skillfully and more important, with as little stress as possible. It truly was enjoyable!
Calvin is completely professional, ethical and honest to a fault. He will never make a decision for you, or push a particular course of action. He was very patient and understanding of my needs, and never once diminished their importance. Calvin was able to use his knowledge of the market to find the perfect match between my criteria and what was available (and realistic). His understanding of my needs allowed him to suggest attractive alternatives that I had never even considered. With Calvin’s assistance and expertise, I purchased a unique property in a highly desirable neighborhood at exceptional value.
My trust in Calvin, his respect for me, his attention to detail and his willingness to invest the time and effort necessary to ensure my complete satisfaction are the reasons why I will employ Calvin for my next real estate transaction, and highly recommend his services to others. “

Highly Recommended to Family and Friends
” I am writing this letter in behalf of Calvin Weinfeld, who has provided me, my family and friends with consistent, high quality real estate services for many years.
When I was first introduced in Calvin, I was immediately impressed with his attention to detail, professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market. Over the years, he has continued to exceed my expectations by providing me with thorough market information and insight, by implementing effective pricing and negotiation strategies, and by consistently exhibiting the ability to lead focused and very timely home purchase and sale process.
While Calvin has successfully worked with me to purchase my own properties, I have also referred him to several family members and close friends to handle their real estate needs. Every single one of them has given Calvin top marks for trustworthiness, understanding their needs, communication skills and, most importantly for achieving a high percentage of asking price for their properties.
Calvin’s work ethic and integrity truly set him apart from other real estate professionals. For these reasons and many others, it is without reservation that I recommend Calvin for any real estate related services. With his superior approach to service quality, I am highly confident that Calvin will significantly exceed your expectations. “
Going the Extra Mile
” If anyone had told us when we decided to sell our home that we would have an offer for full asking price in just 48 hours, we would have thought they were crazy!
Yet here we are today, truly ecstatic over an utterly painless sales process and the critical role that you played in making that sale a reality. The entire experience, from start to finish, has been a pleasure. How many real estate clients can say that?
From the moment my husband and I first met with you, it was clear that we had made the right decision. Your professional nature and sincere character were immediately evident and you really took the time to listen to our wants and needs. Moreover, your exceptional knowledge of the marketplace and our community was overwhelming. The time you invested in learning about our direct competition, as well as the specific appeals of our home and location, made all the difference. We truly believed that your carefully planned marketing strategy is what helped our property to stand out from the crowd.
The real estate world can be scary place for newcomers but a seasoned guide can make all the difference. We would confidently recommend you to our family or friends, and would be happy to act as reference at any time.
Thank you for going the extra mile. “
