Smart marketing strategy

We have recently sold our condominium with the expertise of Murray MacFarlane.  Murray’s experience and smart marketing strategy allowed us to sell over-asking, with 4 offers in 2 days, in the middle of a pandemic!  This is our third time working with Murray, and each time has been quick and easy.  He does thorough research of the area and all other comparable properties.  Murray responds promptly to any and all concerns.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Murray to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

- Anne and Michael

A consummate real estate professional

"Murray helped us to find the perfect condo and also guided us in selling our house (it sold in less than a day!).  He spends time researching for past sales in your area, focusing on properties that are similar to yours; he has statistics at his finger tips and is totally conversant with the real estate market.  On top of all of this, Murray is a very warm and engaging person. It's no wonder that most of his business now is from referrals.  You really are the best!

- Jean and Konrad

Met our needs well

"Murray met our needs well in the sale of our Markham home and the purchase of a condominium in Richmond Hill.  His attention to the details of appropriate pricing and marketing allowed us to sell in less than two weeks.  He works with a home stager who provided expertise and advice in updating the visual appeal of our home.  In the sale of our home we benefited from Murray’s experience and professional counsel while entertaining three separate offers.  His knowledge of the condominium market allowed us to find just what we were looking for at the right price.  He is very personable, never seems rushed, always responds quickly in communication.  We would highly recommend his services."

You are hard working, have integrity and truly care

"It is obvious why clients continue to use your services and recommend you to friends."

- Corie and Peter

Murray came highly recommended

"We were very impressed with Murray's professionalism and vast knowledge of the market.  When it came to pricing, he was very honest as we were selling in a cooling market.  Murray kept in touch at every step of our selling period.  He is very responsive and answers questions quickly.  From listing to final closing, he made us feel confident in our decisions and handled negotiations with true professionalism."

- Katherine and Christine

You'd be hard pressed to find better

"I highly recommend Murray MacFarlane as your real estate agent. My wife and I have had the privilege to work with Murray on four transactions. He is always there when you need an answer. If he doesn't have the answer, he'll get it fast. Murray is always professional, kind, compassionate and knowledgeable about the area he works in."

- Mark

It has been an awesome experience

"I had the privilege of working with Murray as my realtor when looking to purchase my first condominium in Aurora. His patience and detail oriented nature was evident which provided me with ease and comfort as I started this new and exciting process. I really enjoyed working with Murray MacFarlane and realize that he went above and beyond to ensure that I found my perfect first home."

- Samantha

Years of experience

"Murray MacFarlane was incredible when it came to selling our family home.  He dealt with difficult circumstances with poise and ease.  He was constantly communicating to us the details of the process and gave good advice on how to proceed.  Murray provided accommodations for me while out of town, which lessened my worry about trying to sell our house.  He is very thorough and his years of experience show through his contacts in the industry, the strategies employed and overall knowledge.  I trust his work, and feel comfortable conducting business with him.  Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Murray to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Markham."

- Casey

Honesty and dedication

"I would be pleased to recommend your services as a Real Estate professional to anyone.  We did two transactions with you - the first in 2005 when you represented the vendor when we bought, and then this year (2016) when we sold the same property.  Both times you demonstrated an honesty and level of dedication that is a very rare quality these days.  You always kept your promises and delivered on every commitment.  You have handled some difficult situations with diplomacy and professionalism, always looking out for our best interests.  I bought my first property over 25 years ago and have worked with many realtors all over Canada.  You were truly the very best of them all."

- Guy and Bobby

Knowledge and advice

"To my Real Estate Agent "for life".  Thank you for sharing your knowledge and advice over the years since we met.  Your guidance resulted in a very successful outcome!  Thank you X a million.

- Donna

Expertise and counsel

"This long overdue note is to thank you both for your help in the sale of our home in Markham. We appreciate the efforts of you and your team very much. The outcome we realized would not have been possible without your help. The expertise and counsel that you provided throughout the preparation, staging, showing and sale of the house was invaluable. Your personal attention, and that of the people you recommended, showed your commitment to your clients and made a daunting and intimidating process more manageable. We would recommend your services to anyone without hesitation and on behalf of our family again extend our sincere thanks."

- Don and Helen

We both appreciated your patience and guidance

"Thank you Murray for a job well done.  You were very professional and had our interests and needs in mind at all times.  As it was a very stressful time for both David and I, with so much going on at one time, we both appreciated your patience and guidance.  We were very happy with the outcome for all of us."

- Diane and David

Professional, thorough and dedicated

"It is my privilege to write a letter of reference for Murray MacFarlane, Real Estate Broker who recently represented me in the selling of my home in Markham.  As I worked in a busy real estate legal office for many years, I had the opportunity to work with and to meet hundreds of real estate agents.  Without a doubt, Murray is one of the most professional, thorough and dedicated agents whom I have ever met.  He is continually in touch with his clients through email, personal visits, and telephone calls – however, none of this is intrusive.  He returns text messages and emails very promptly.  He keeps his clients updated as to who has visited the property, who has looked at the property, and through open houses.  My house was sold in three weeks from date of listing and throughout that time, Murray kept in contact with me to update me on the progress on a regular basis.  There was never any pressure to make decisions with which I did not agree.  I honestly felt that he was totally dedicated to ensuring that what I wanted out of the sale was realized in the eventual outcome.  I would highly recommend Murray as one of the finest, honest, and most professional real estate agents I have ever met.  I will certainly use his services again when I next need an agent, or any advice on a real estate matter."

- Bonnie

Your negotiating experience was very helpful in closing the sale

“Thank you so much for working with us once again to successfully sell our home!  That makes a total of 4 homes that we have sold with you over the years (and we even purchased a few as well)!  We would recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.  We listed our home with you this time based not only on our history together, but as well because your superior market research, which you shared with us in detail, ensured that we priced our home properly for the market, and we did sell it successfully in less than the average time for our area.  And, as always, we had a lot of fun working with you!  We wish you continued success!”

- Kim and Doug

Sold in 9 Days for 99% of List Price!

“We would like you to know how pleased we are with the expertise and professionalism that you provided throughout the listing and selling of our home.  We had not done this before and your care and understanding made everything so smooth and worry-free.  As you know, we had discussions with another agent, and the best decision we could have made was to solicit another opinion and select you to manage this process for us.  If we have friends or relatives in need of your services, we would certainly not hesitate to refer them to you.”

- Ann and Barrie

Kept me informed every step of the way!

“Thank you for all your help through our recent sale.  We know that it was a protracted affair, and are certain you did everything within your sales efforts to make this a positive experience for us.  Through the process you provided us with weekly updates, monthly statistics on reviews of our home, and copies of newspaper ads as well.  Suggestions we made which we thought might assist in making the sale were followed up, and we overall are pleased with your service.  We certainly would have no reservations in recommending Century 21 Leading Edge Realty Inc. to anyone needing buy/sell real estate services.”

- Lorraine and Bob

A stress-free real estate experience.

“We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your professionalism and consideration during the selling of our home.  We had not sold a home in 20 years so we wanted the best with the intent of making the whole process as least stressful as possible and we certainly were not disappointed.  We know who to recommend to our friends and family.”

- Doug and Sue

You exceeded all expectations

“Your assessment of the state of the current market was spot on.  The strategy you suggested and then flawlessly implemented resulted in multiple offers exactly at the top of the range you had estimated.  Of our six past experiences this was by far the most professional and painless real estate transaction that we have been through.  You exceeded all expectations that were set out and you did it in an approachable comfortable manner.  You made us feel that we were your only client and your highest priority.  We will be certain to recommend your services without hesitation to any of our friends or relatives.”

- Anne and Ron

Your slogan should be integrity, integrity, integrity

“Thank you for your efforts in selling and buying my home(s).  Your attention to my needs was wonderful.  I appreciate the individual/specific attention you gave to my particular home and never felt it was categorized by area, age, etc., but rather unique.  Thanks for the experienced advice (when asked) and overall sensitivity.  I have (and will continue) to recommend your services.  Your slogan could be Integrity! Integrity! Integrity!  Moving after 36 years was a big undertaking both physically and emotionally.  It really helped to know that the selling details were in good hands.”

- Pauline

Common sense, experience and keeping my interests in mind

“I interviewed 7 different realtors in June 2014 in order to select a Real Estate Agent to assist me in selling my aunt’s property in Markham, Ontario.  As a result of these interviews I selected Murray MacFarlane from Century 21, Markham, Ontario for the following reasons:

  • Preparation for the interview was comprehensive and thorough.
  • Interest in my concerns and response to these concerns was genuine; observations and advice to me showed a willingness to work with me, not for me.
  • Throughout the process of listing, showing and finally selling the property, Murray was quick to respond to my questions.  There were several bids on the property that came in within hours and/or a day of each other.  Murray discussed in detail the process of “getting to goal” so to speak.  Murray also listened intently to my concerns and together we discussed the pros and cons of each offer.  I was very impressed with his common sense, experience and willingness to go back and forth to the other agents, always keeping my interest in mind.
  • The sale from beginning to end went off without a hitch.

In summary, his personable skill as well as experience and knowledge in the real estate industry are a great asset to the person who is selling and/or buying property.”

- Renee

“This has been our second transaction with you and once again you have proved to be the very best and our confidence in your abilities well placed.  Integrity is so important as is skill and availability to your clients.  It has amazed us that you know this endless supply of resources and contacts.  Nothing is an insurmountable problem and you were always there for us.  We will always continue to recommend you to family and friends.”

- Glen & Angela

“We wanted to take this time to thank you for your outstanding work guiding us through the entire process of selling and buying again!  From our original consultation to listing, showing and selling, you continue to provide us excellent customer service.  Your knowledge of both markets and your attention to detail ensured our complete satisfaction.  Customer service has been defined as ‘a proactive attitude that can be summed up as:  I care and I can do’.  You are our ‘Realtor for Life’.”

- Tracey and Morgan
