The essence of King living is a message that’s being warmly received around the globe, thanks to an international realtor.
A top-shelf customer focus is the mantra at Engel & Völkers York. Nestled in the former St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Eversley stone church, E&V team members gather regularly to hone their skills and ensure King homes are presented proudly to the global market.
It’s a collaborative attitude, fostered by Stefani Konidis, Broker of Record. Their brainstorming sessions are friendly and fun, but serious. They continually strive to do better.
Bolstering the interest is the fact that “Canada is on sale” – the low dollar means estate homes are a bargain for American or European buyers.
E&V markets its listings all over the world and this extends the reach, and appeal, of King homes abroad.
It works both ways, Konidis pointed out, for local residents looking to move abroad.
The local advisors are globally connected, something that gives E&V a distinct advantage. A listing receives immediate international exposure.
Konidis said the majority of referral transactions are within North America, with a lot of action on the U.S. eastern seaboard and southern states like Florida and Arizona.
King attracts buyers for many reasons. The charms are as distinct as the homes in this rural paradise.
Some of the top features of King include those large estate properties, number of great public and private schools in the area, access to major commuter routes, proximity of amenities, and our green protected spaces. Privacy is another factor that buyers are looking for.
While King homes command premium prices, the value is definitely here. Local homes are not only worth it, but they do appreciate.
Selling King is an art and it all comes down to people and customer service.
“I like selling homes in King because I enjoy sharing it,” said sales representative Melissa MacKenzie. “It’s like this really great kept secret and you always want to tell the secret. There’s no better feeling than introducing somebody to the King area and watching them fall in love with it, or even better yet, helping somebody stay in the King area who’s already is in love with it.”
The E&V brand recognition is invaluable – wherever you find beautiful properties, premium service and extraordinary living, you’ll find an E&V shop.
Their advisors provide all types of professionally tailored services, to their clients interested in retail and industrial space, investment properties, multi-purpose apartment and office blocks. E&V worldwide also has a yachting and an aviation division, making it a true lifestyle brand.
E&V has some 700 shops around the world, with 7,000 advisors. That translates to taking personal service to another level.
Engel & Völkers York serves the King, Caledon, Aurora, Newmarket and Whitchurch-Stouffville areas. Whether you’re moving within York, or admiring this community from abroad, the E&V experts are there to help find that perfect match.
It’s all about exposing consumers to a multi-faceted experience. Not only are the sales advisors passionate about their work, customers are feeling the difference.
