“Oh My Goodness! Our last agent had our home listed for 3 months and we never heard from him. It didn’t sell, and he never even called us with updates. You looked professional the minute we first met. Then when you sold our home in just 4 days for over asking price I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Definitely tears of joy. When someone else can’t sell a home after 3 months on the market, and you sell it after 4 days for over asking, you must know some secrets the other agents don’t. We were very impressed with the way you handled the negotiation of our offer. We are so thrilled we found you guys and you were working for us instead of the people who bought our house.

“Dear Michael, I haven’t moved for 20 years, and back then my husband handled the details. Recently divorced, this entire process was very scary and overwhelming to me. I didn’t know who to trust, what to expect, or where to even begin finding a new home. You must be the most patient Realtors on the planet. Not only did you keep me calm, focused, and you remained compassionate with me the entire time, but you also helped me find my dream home. The ultimate surprise was when you negotiated the deal at my price. I love you for what you did, and I can’t wait for everyone I know to move, so I can insist they call you and forget about using any other Realtor. Thank You … Thank You … Thank You!”
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all you did for David and I. From selling my house and dealing with the other crazy realtor who you caught trying to cheat us out of money,
to negotiating the deal on our new house and getting us the critical closing day we desperately needed. I still can’t believe the last agent couldn’t sell my house after 2 months, and you sold it in ONE day! You have been amazing, and I am sooooo appreciative to have you on our side. Thanks again Michael. We are eternally grateful for your grace and strength and tremendous negotiating skills.
Greetings From Cyprus:
I can’t thank you enough for your awesome work in selling our properties. It was quite stressful having to move to another country so quickly, and not being there in Toronto to work with a Realtor. When the last Realtor took 7 months to sell one of our properties and didn’t sell the other 2, I started to panic and didn’t know what else to do. I’m so happy that I was referred to you. From the first phone call we had together, I had a feeling you were different.
I don’t know what you do different, but when you sold my North York home for over-asking in 3 hours on the market, and my vacant lot in Richmond Hill in less than 2 weeks (and the previous agent couldn’t sell it in almost 1 year on the market), I felt like a world of weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Furthermore, when you sold them both without any conditions, that was the icing on the cake. I didn’t have to worry that a deal would fall through.
You guys are the best!

Michael, for me to say that you amazed me with your expertise and results would be a gross understatement. A t first I was nervous about the pricing strategy you proposed. Your confidence alone convinced me to agree, but I had my doubts. I was expecting a stressful process of waiting for offers, and then negotiating back and forth.
The fact that you sold my house in 2 days on the markets for 102% of asking price was most impressive. I’ve seen other homes in the area sell in less than a week, but for slightly less than asking price – or they’ve sold in 3-4 weeks for near asking price. But nothing in my area has sold as fast as 2 days AND for 102% of asking price.
When you not only brought us multiple offers, but you showed us proof that you were negotiating back and forth with the Buyers all day, just to minimize stress and inconvenience for us, was astonishing.
I have no idea how you negotiated up 3 different offers at the same time, to what was ultimately a lot more than their starting offer price, but I guess that’s why you guys are the pros. I will definitely be telling all of my friends about you!
Thank you soooooo much!

Michael has been an enormous help with my current purchase of an older home. Not only has he been on top of the deal since day one, he also managed to negotiate a new roof, some electrical upgrades and a chimney rebuild for me! He has been a wonderful help with providing advice on everything to mortgage brokers to renovators to house inspectors. He has put considerable time and effort into the deal on my behalf and is always happy to help out in any way he can. I hope to be happy in my new house for many years to come but If I ever do sell my new house I will definitely ask him to be my agent!

We looked at so many houses I thought I’d never find what I like. When we finally did and there were 3 other offers on the same day for that property I lost all hope. When you convinced the selling agent to schedule a meeting so the vendors could meet us personally, it was obviously just the beginning of your negotiating tactics. When we finally all got together, the way you spoke to the vendors and convinced them to accept our offer over all other offers was sheer brilliance. I will recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for a home.

When I bought our rental property I never imagined the tenants would become so inflexible in allowing us to access or sell the property. Although the tenants agreed when signing our lease to allow us to show the property to buyers, and advertise the property for sale, you know I became very frustrated when they outright denied letting prospective buyers inside to see the home.
Your ability to negotiate an understanding with them, whereby they ultimately did cooperate in allowing buyers to see the property was very impressive. Your extended efforts to visit every showing and ensure there was no conflict with the tenants, not only provided us with reassurance, but I’m convinced your efforts were integral in ultimately selling the property.
I believe that most Agents would have stopped working on our deal right after the waiver came. But due to your in-depth knowledge of the Residential Tenancy Act, and your proactive approach to business, your application to the Landlord & Housing Tribunal (on our behalf) for an eviction at the end of lease was brilliant.
Although we agreed to allow the tenants to remain until the end of their lease (as is their right), we certainly feared they would not leave at such time, which would then jeopardize the sale of the home, as we guaranteed vacant possession to the buyers.
Your attendance at the Landlord & Tenant tribunal hearing this week, and the way you presented my case to the adjudicator …. and ultimately got a verdict in our favour (in less than 5 min.) to evict the tenants by Sherriff’s order (if they don’t leave on time) was brilliant!
Thank You so much for all of your dedicated hard work and expertise.

As a Professional Contractor and Custom Home Builder, I meet a lot of howme owners and real estate investors who hire me to renovate their homes so that they can sell for top dollar and maximize their profit.
During my consultations with clients, they often ask me about what renovations will add short-term value so that they will get their ROI on the sale, and which renovations are ultimately a waste of money.
Michael & Roy have been very supportive as part of my team. His long history and success as a Real Estate Investor ensures our clients are well informed about their options. His apparent desire to ensure total client satisfaction makes him a pleasure to deal with.
I’ve met many good Realtors, but you guys have really proven to me that he is different than the rest, with his unique strategies and extensive knowledge about the product and the market!
Thanks for all of the great work Michael!

I have been investing in real estate for over 8 years and I have always found that realtors are typically creatures of habit. They seem to focus on winning a client’s business more than offering expert knowledge to help an investor analyze a deal properly or implement strategies that will make the deal profitable for me. Not only is your personality extremely easy to deal with but you clearly have in-depth knowledge of analyzing all aspects of a potential deal and you always made me feel that you were focused on profitability for me, rather than simply making your commission. That professionalism is very rare and much appreciated. I will continue to use your services.
Paul Y. – Toronto, Ontario
I read your blog…good stuff. You explain it in such a way that it is next to impossible not to get it!
I am obsessed with real estate (my first job was at the age of 16 as a secretary in a real estate office)…bought my first house at the age of 18 (was infested with roaches…was not aware!!!). Rented out homes for over 16 yrs and the list goes on.
Anyway … Much, much, much continued success to you!!! ))

Michael – thank you for your friendship, support, and many lessons in the art and science of making deals happen.
I wish you continued success this year.

Michael Shuster, was very professional and insightful when advising me on selling my condo. He went through a complete analysis of the area and gave his honest opinion and provided totally realistic expectations. He is an expert negotiator and uses this to your advantage when selling your home, while always protecting your interests. Michael also gave excellent marketing advice on strategies I could implement at my end on how to present my condo and he also provided his own strategies on how he will market the property. This included him hiring a professional photographer and creating a virtual tour on MLS, and provided stunning high-quality colored brochures to be given out to prospective buyers. Michael was extremely efficient in responding to my emails and phone calls. I will be using his services again to buy my new home.
