Its never about the money!

Oh please! Its always about the money.

I'm David Pylyp 
A Realtor here in Toronto, Canada.

This year will be my best year in 25 years of real estate.

Here's how I'm going to do it.

I work with mostly higher end clients and luxury homes, located in Etobicoke, that's west Toronto, in the Kingsway, Princess Manor, Bloor west and High Park, Markland Wood and the Humber Bay Shores.  Also, a little bit into Mississauga,

The David Pylyp Team is built on being ethical. We really believe in our clients. They appreciate our Integrity and ethics. When I worked on Bay Street, a wise man told me that there was the ROB principle.  Results or Bullshit. We believe in the no Bullshit rule, as we share information and deliver great service.

In order to put clients interests first,  there needs to be collaboration and trust among agents. We don't do drama which distracts us from the goal of client service. Real Estate agents for some reason are generally thought to be very cut throat. We're trying to create a culture where collaboration among the agents exist.

The information that is Shared becomes very important; 
this creates Good energy and that parlays into referral business and great Word of Mouth Advertising.

I think clients today, are much more sophisticated than they ever were, because of the WEB. They have a much better understanding of all the details of the property, the structure & the overalltransaction. So therefore they are much more sophisticated than they were, even 5 years ago,  Making us, the real estate agent, a specialist at a much higher level. In order for you to have confidence in us, to be able to show you that we are experts at what we do.

The clients trust us to market their house effectively, expose it to as many people as possible, and doing so professionally, ethically and you are actually going to deliver! Do it. Not just lying to them.

I cannot tell you how many clients call and say Well I had the house listed and I was told by my agent that they would do all of these gazzillion things and they did nothing.  Acting on your words is so important. If you are not going to do it...   Don't say it. Its that Simple.

I love using the sites like, now I specifically like Google, Youtube and Jugnoo. There are other sites also and I find we need every method possible to get the properties out there. 

I find that educating the client is not harmful. Its a question of our expertise and our being able to service the client from offer to purchase, finance, inspections through to completion. Total Transaction management.

Facebook we just use to put up photography, topics of interest and to keep in touch, Pinterest draws viewers to our other web pages.  Twitter is more Engagement and up to the minute events. You cannot be afraid to spend money on marketing, Social Media and Technology.

Time and marketing can give you a very high return on your investment. Thats return on Investment. Not return on EGO. 

Technology has allowed us to be in a lot more places, in less time. If you are not keeping up with technology you are not going to survive in this world.  We need to Go after the business...  

So, you want someone who can handle things for you in a competent fashion.

Do you feel confident I can get you those results?

One of three things are going to happen;

  • List the house today
  • Decide Not to list with me
  • or Maybe I won't take the listing

Windermere by the Lake

David Pylyp, Humber Bay Shore, Condos
Scant a few steps to Lake Ontario, your own access to the Gardiner Expressway at Windermere.  Your own exit when proceeding east into Toronto and immediately left onto Windermere Ave.

From downtown Toronto you would exit on south Kingsway, walking would bring you directly south of Bloor west Village; with all those restaurants and specialty shops along the shopping mile.

Located in south edge of Swansea; a quick search by postal code M6S 5A2  using  Hood Reports reveals the demographics that should interest you.  The Walk Score shows you what is nearby,

Sales of condominium units in the last 90 day period;
One Bedroom Units sold between $ 274.0K and $305.0K
There are 5 available today as per this posting

Maintenance Fees are within normal averages at $ 0.595 cents per square foot.

Floorplans and a PDF of last sale details are available; send an email or use the Dream Home Finder to tell me about your Must Haves 

Windermere by The Lake is ideally located on a triangle of land between the Historic Sunnyside Beach Area of Lake Ontario, Grenedier Pond and the verdant treescape of High Park. It is without question, the most truly remarkable and unique building site in Toornto.  To the North and west you're overlooking an established neighourhood of single family homes that have remained unchanged for years. The Condominium Tower is a souring, contemporary structure of glass and steel; Offering residents uncompromising views, spectacular amenities, superior design, airy balconies and finishes unequalled in its class.
This Landlmark building is firmly grounded by a collection of traditionally styled brick and stone townhouses and patio / terrace townhomes that create a charming streetscape reflective of the neighbourhood and surroundings.

What do you think of this location?   Would you like to live here?

Have we finally hit the tipping Point?

The months stats say that the real estate market has slowed down and I wonder why?

It’s the summer time? Hottest July on Record! Poor Press in the Media?   Shortened Mortgage AMs while rates stagnate at 3%?  Gas Prices? Insurance Rates? Commuting Times?  Land Transfer Taxes 416 and 905?   

Let’s ask a different question?

If your family member was getting married…   Is it better to help them with the Wedding Expense?   Or would you forgo the wedding,   Suggest they elope, and help them purchase an appreciating asset.

Join the Poll

We continue [The GTA] to be a safe haven for money, security, jobs, education and lifestyle.   When people stop coming to Toronto, I will begin to be concerned.  The rest is just selling newspapers

How can I help your family achieve their goals this year?
