3 Reasons Team Broady WANTS You To Bother Them

We hear this all the time…“I wish I had called you before. But I just didn’t want to bother you. I know you’re busy…” after it is too late.

There are times when you might feel like you shouldn’t “bother” us. Maybe you’re truly trying to be considerate. Let’s go over a few examples of when you should “bother” us. Because it really isn’t a bother!

1. You just want to check out a house.

You see a house online, or a For Sale sign. Maybe you have no desire at all to move, and you’re just curious and want to take a peek.

So, you don’t want to “bother” us to show you the house. Instead, you call the listing agent. 

Next thing you know, you love the house and want to make an offer. And that’s when you call Team Broady.

Too late. At that point, the agent with whom you visited the property (even if you explain that you have your own agent) will be considered “the effective cause of sale” and will be entitled to the buyer-agent’s commission. As innocent as it seems, when you just want to go see a house without calling us, you are inadvertently making our involvement in the transaction very complicated.

You’re better off calling Team Broady to show you the house in the first place. You won’t be considered a bother.

2. You want to know how much your home is worth.

Maybe you’re just curious about how much your home is worth. Perhaps after seeing a neighbour’s home sell, receiving your municipal evaluation, or a bank appraisal, you feel fairly confident that you know the value of your home.

So, why “bother” us about this?

Team Broady knows all too well that the market value of your home requires an on-site visit, as well as in-depth knowledge of your neighbourhood’s real estate market.

If you base your hopes, dreams, and decisions on an inaccurate value, that can hurt you quite a bit. Again, asking us to do an analysis of your home’s market value (always complimentary) is not a bother. In fact, we recommend that this be done regularly as part of your investment portfolio review. 

3. You are considering a home improvement project.

Once you have a sense of the proposed cost of a project, before you just pull the trigger and move forward, you really should “bother” us for our input.

Putting on an addition? That will surely increase the value. A kitchen or bathroom remodel? Yep, your house will be worth more. But will the value increase by more than the amount you spent? Will the choices you make in decor, layout, or finishings appeal to a buyer down the road? 

We can help you make informed decisions before you spend the money and go through the headaches of a huge project.

Team Broady doesn’t want to break the news to you that your home is only worth $35,000 more after you spent $60,000. Where’s the joy in that?

Reach out to Team Broady before you do anything real estate related, and remember:  It isn’t a “bother”!

TESTIMONIALS

  • "I would like to thank Libby Broady and her Team for all their hard work and commitment during the sale of my home. Libby, a woman in my age range, knew what a hard transition this was at this stage in life. Libby covered every obstacle in how to present my property – a polished professional all the way with excellent communication skills to boot. And a calming presence when needed!! Her solid knowledge of the market, and true caring nature made this a very satisfactory experience."

    -- Ness Welhan, Baie d'Urfé, QC

  • "My wife and I had been looking to move by the water for over 3 years before finding the home that was right for us. During this time, the Broadys’ patience was so appreciated as we never felt pressured despite our lengthy process deciding what was best for us. This was key and helped make the experience enjoyable. Of course once we decided on the right home, we needed to sell our existing house fast. As such, we were able to see both sides of the Broady efficiency. On the one hand, they offered tremendous insight and patience when buying our home; on the other, they effectively and efficiently sold our house in a timely matter ensuring our maximum return. Anytime you buy or sell a home, there will be logistical issues, I can’t imagine handling these without the experience and knowledge of a well-established group of brokers. We truly enjoyed the experience of working with the Broady family, each member brought different insight, experience, knowledge, and negotiating abilities allowing us to focus on the fun parts of the move knowing such a dedicated team had our best interest during the whole process."

    -- Mark Paulin and Stephanie Rondeau, Baie d’Urfé, QC

  • "We contracted the services of the Broady family to sell our home. We were very happy not only with the attentive customer service but also the marketing strategies used to sell our luxury property. We are currently in the process of buying a new home with the Broady Team and are confident that they will be able to find the right house at the right price for us."

    -- Lysanne Rich, Baie d'Urfé, QC

  • “I worked with Team Broady in selling my mother's Beaconsfield home. I live near Toronto which meant effective communications and timeliness were particularly important to getting things done. And we were dealing with a house that was coming off rental ... needing a quick sprucing up to make it easily marketable. Libby and team were very accessible, responsive, communicate especially well, and had very practical ideas to maximize the home's presentation; and they moved quickly to promote the home in a slowing market. With that ... and a bit of luck ... the home sold easily. Mom and I (Mom herself was an agent for 20 years) felt exceedingly well served by Team Broady."

    -- Mike Wood, Toronto, ON

  • “You Broadys have been friendly, courteous and very professional. Your appraisal of the house, with both its pluses and minuses, was honest and your suggestions on how to improve the look of the house were very helpful, as you managed to sell our house in 3 days!"

    -- Loretta Teasell, Beaconsfield, QC

  • “We remain confident we chose the best people to sell our house. Team Broady set a standard in professionalism and impressed us with their knowledge of the marketplace. Ever grateful..."

    -- Mr. and Mrs. Donnet, Beaconsfield, QC

  • “Team Broady, it is with great pleasure that I tell you today that we were IMMEDIATELY overwhelmed by your attitude, professionalism, presentation, expertise and knowledge of the market place."

    -- Jacques & Francine Douziech, Beaconsfield, QC

  • “Team Broady are a pleasure to deal with. They make a point of understanding your objectives and never utilize pressure to force a deal. We would recommend them to anyone in the market to sell or purchase a home. Their work ethic, dedication and straightforward approach make the entire process much easier."

    -- J.F Turcotte & Stephanie Crook, Beaconsfield, QC

  • “Our mother has lived in the same house for 45 years. Thanks to the Broadys’ caring and understanding, the huge transition to an apartment was made much easier for her. They also did an excellent job in marketing and selling her home quickly. We truly appreciate all their efforts."

    -- Nancy Turnau

  • "Many thanks, to the Broady team, for a good job well done. Moving an octogenarian couple from Quebec to Ontario was no mean task, but together you made it happen painlessly, and we greatly appreciate your work. Mark took care of us in every way, but having the whole family as a backup was a tremendous advantage, In addition to the Montreal team, you introduced us to your colleagues here in Kingston, which made the transition that much simpler. Thank you again, and we would recommend the team to anybody looking for real old-fashioned service, with modern trimmings."

    -- John and Penelope Fossey, Baie d’Urfé, QC

  • "Ce que j’ai vraiment apprécié de l’équipe Broady c’est qu’elle ne nous a pas fait miroiter de fausses attentes. Très bon travail de recherche, aussi bien pour la vente de notre propriété que pour la négociation de l’achat de notre nouvelle maison. Ils se sont aussi bien assurés de qualifier les éventuels visiteurs pour nous éviter des visites non productives. Je n’hésite absolument pas à recommander L’équipe Broady."

    -- Jean Hamelin, Baie d’Urfé, QC

  • "We want to thank you for the way you handled the sale of the house. We appreciated your charisma and business acumen in dealing with us and others and if you ever need a recommendation, we will gladly provide it. Our warmest regards to you and wishes for your continued success."

    -- Rodney and Helen Heather, Beaconsfield, QC


  • "Great end-to-end service, expertise, and advice. Handled the pitfalls quickly and with resolve. Their team dynamic was extremely helpful as they were able to have our house listed very quickly after notification of intent. We’re very satisfied with the process."

    -- Joshua and Alexandra, Beaconsfield, QC
