We practice "Real Estate 101": Door knocking, open houses, farming and writing articles. The Internet is very important and we blog on a regular basis, with many blogsites that we have.
We keep in touch with my past clients and build my referral base constantly. Diane Plant and Steven Plant are TEAM PLANT. We are members of the Toronto Real Estate Board, OREA, CREA and RECCO. We have been an active volunteer on fund raising campaigns.
In Diane's spare time she is an artist and displays art pieces in various locations and shops in Toronto.
Our area of expertise is taking care of our clients on all professional levels. We do extensive market research, print advertising, attend seminars by both real estate and other professionals in the business community to keep up to date on the latest trends.
Buyers: We guide them through the process of house hunting to making the offer. First of all we make sure they are pre-qualified to make a purchase and if not we will refer several names of mortgage brokers or banks to call. Once they are pre-qualified we help them chose a neighborhood that suits their lifestyle. we advise them about certain locations that might be an adverse resale location. If there are multiple offers we strategize the offer process to make sure we win the bid. we always recommend a home inspection and give my clients several great choices. Upon successful completion of the offer we give them our own moving checklist and are there for them with any questions they might have and follow up visits.
Sellers: Many of our Sellers are referred to me so we meet them after being highly recommended. wego over what they expect from me and then tour their home. We sit down and go over the comparable listings and suggest a reasonable price to market the home at. We will tell them all about the marketing we do for them. I give them our own list of Dressing Your Home For Success, a pamphlet Make Every Showing Count, a letter on what WE Request from them and a written personal guarantee. we sit down with our sellers a half hour before an offer presentation (if it is not our own) and describe the process and go over all the clauses we will see in the offer presentation. This helps make my seller less anxious and better prepared on how to react to any offer. Upon successful negotiation of the agreement we do all the follow ups necessary and give the seller a copy of the moving checklist.

|We recently purchased a residence in Toronto after a search of a little more than two months. The Toronto real estate market is a challenging one and in our opinion anyone looking to buy in this market requires the support of a knowledgeable rea estate agent" We were fortunate to have Diane Plant and Jeremy Plant as our real estate agents through our search. They kept us constantly advised of new listings, made themselves available any time we indicated interest in a particular property and were also helpful in assisting us in our assessment of a property. We might add that their friendly and positive manner helped keep our spirits up during the search. Once we had selected a property, Diane & Jeremy worked quickly and guided us through the paperwork necessary to prepare an offer. Most importantly, during the offer process, in which there was competitive bidding, (a common feature of the Toronto real estate market), the Plant Team made a strong presentation tot he seller's agent. In the end we were successful in buying the residence that we wanted at a price with which we were comfortable. We would certainly recommend the services of Diane and Jeremy to anyone looking to buy a residence in the Toronto area. ~ David & Sandra|
|I just wanted to thank you for helping me buy my home. You were patient and understanding of my needs. When it came time, you helped me negotiate a difficult agreement. I look forward to doing business in the future." ~ Rod|
