We arrived in Toronto full of hope but with a lot of ignorance. We met John thanks to some friends. From the beginning John understood our needs and our expectations. The empathy he showed us gave us the necessary confidence from the beginning to venture with him in the almost impossible search for a suitable house for the family. The time he dedicated to our search and the guidance he gave us were fundamental pieces in the success and completion of the search.
John Slidders is the definition of professionalism and delivery. In our search for a home, John was the only one with the experience and ability to find an ideal place for the family. His time, effort and help are invaluable.

There are no words that describe the gratitude we have for John, who in addition to being the best real estate agent that can be found in Toronto, can become a true friend.

In my recent experience, John Slidders is an outstanding real estate agent. John guided me through the entire sale process of selling my west end Toronto home. By bringing in his design and staging team, I prepared my house for sale to maximize the sale price. John provided a complete package of services:
• Professionally prepared floor plans
• Staging consultation
• Pre-sale home inspection
• Marketing brochures
• Advertising
• Regular market updates
The result was a sale of my Etobicoke home at the full asking price at a time when the resale market was rapidly changing. John was also able to find me a condominium rental in a premier building in an excellent location. I recommend John as your real estate agent if you are thinking of buying, selling or renting your home or condo.

The purchase of a first home is no small task, my wife and I were full of dreams and good intentions but lacked the knowledge to make an informed and adequate decision in Toronto's heated real estate market.

We met John through a friend at work, a true referral. At the time we already had started seeing another real estate agent but something didn't feel right, he was not really listening to us, our needs. And boy what a change did it felt with John! He is the most patient, good listener, customer focused, honest and friendly seller I've ever met.

John took the time to understand our situation form multiple angles (financial, emotional, growing family needs, etc.), then helped us explore house options in many areas always showing us places with a clear purpose in mind: finding the right place for us. Throughout the 4+ months our process lasted we never felt pushed or pressed to make a decision, we always felt understood and felt that John had our best interest at heart.

During this process John had many gestures that made working with him a pleasure, he also had many gestures that won our trust and friendship.

When we finally found our home we realized we also found a friend in John.

After we had finalized the purchase there was a little detail that kept bugging John. Something so small my wife and I never paid attention to. Nevertheless John's strict professionalism wouldn't allow him to forget it, he took the time to work it out, fix it and communicate us when it was all done. Simply a super customer experience.

I could not recommend a better real estate agent in Toronto.

Navigating through the stormy waters of the Toronto real estate market is not for the faint of heart but with John’s knowledge, professionalism, patience, trustworthiness and client centred focus, our transition to a smaller home was smoother than we expected.

Although we knew John as a neighbour he still took the time to listen to us and fully understand our needs and our unique situation. John also understood the emotional impact we were experiencing as the downsizing and selling process unfolded and provided advice, support and resources. He developed a marketing and presentation strategy for our house which sold at over asking price after two days on the market thanks to John masterfully finessing the purchasing process.

Since John had spent a lot of time with us to understand our needs and values, he was able to combine this understanding to his knowledge of the market to show us homes that were a close fit to our requirements. When we made an offer on a home John was a shrewd negotiator and strategist who got us a favourable deal. We are now enjoying our new smaller home.

John is not only the consummate real estate professional but what make him different from the herd is he cares about his clients, he has endless patience, has the tact of a diplomat, is refreshingly honest and his integrity is beyond reproach. John continually communicated with us during the selling, buying and closing processes and we still meet regularly to solve the world’s problems over a coffee. We have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone who needs outstanding real estate advice, service and results with a friendly smile!

Thanks again John. You made a difference.

John was referred to us by friends who described him as personable, knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. After working with John on the sale of our home, I would add trustworthy and caring to this list.

John really took the time to understand our needs and work with us. His feedback was always thoughtful, and we were thoroughly impressed with the amount of time he devoted to us as clients to educate us and prepare our house for sale. The marketing of our home was exceptional and we credit John and his team at Royal LePage with understanding how best to use new media to market and sell a home.

His optimistic nature, professionalism and exceptional customer service skills made a world of difference to us.

I first met John at an open house in Etobicoke. My first impression of John was that he was friendly and professional and someone that I could trust. We asked him to sell our house and find us a new home in a specific area of Etobicoke.

His marketing skills and selling strategy were demonstrated through the staging process and open houses right up until the sale of the house. Finding a new home in the specified area was a challenge as there were very few listings at the time. John met that challenge by using his extended network as well as taking the extra step of canvassing the area. He found us our home and we were thankful to have him guide us through a challenging time.

We have recommended John to our family and friends and will continue to do so for his thorough, professional, and patient approach and his willingness to go the extra mile.

I asked a co-worker of mine if they knew any reliable real estate agents and they gave me John's number. I met with John and he was very professional, personable and knowledgable. He was able to work around my schedule and we looked at many condos over a two month period.

I found and bought a place exactly where I wanted, at a very acceptable price and what I was looking for.

I have been having a great time in my new condo. As a first time buyer I really enjoyed the experience and have since given advice I learned from John to some of my friends. I would definitely recommend John to those seeking professional representation.

Without any doubt, the recently completed selling of our previous home and purchase of a new Townhome has been the best real estate experience that we have had.

John's marketing strategy and advise on the staging of our former home allowed us to sell within eight days of listing, and receive $30,000 above list price.

Though, we were looking to down-size, our list of wants for our new home was demanding: location, space, and up to date fixtures were all important.

John, not only kept us posted on all the new listing coming available he actively sought out possible vendors in neighbourhoods in which we had an interest. Communication was always first rate. We could not be happier in our new home.

We met John Slidders when we went to see a property in Etobicoke. We immediately felt comfortable with John and knew he was the right agent to utilize for the search of our new home and the sale of our current home.

John's patience and thorough demeanor complemented our apprehensive nature. He was sensitive to our needs and search criteria and educated himself about the property prior to showing it to us. His attention to detail was exceptional - he knew if a house was suited for us or not.

When it came to the sale of our home, John's expertise came shining through. Outstanding Marketing support to showcase the house, helpful staging advice and virtual tour enabled the listing to stand out over other listings in the then, saturated competitive market. His experience and knowledge of the market enabled us to sell our house in 2 days at full asking price! But, his service didn't end at the "Sale" of the house. He went the extra step to ensure everything went smoothly at the time of closing. John did not miss a thing!

John, you turned a normally "stressful" experience into a "pleasant and worry-free" event and we will continue to recommend your services to anyone wishing to buy or sell. Thanks very much for all your help!

In the fall of 2009 John sold our property within 3 days of listing. During the two years that we were exploring the market, he proceeded in a very professional and accommodating manner. John was extremely sensitive to our personal needs and dealt with us with great patience and understanding.The presentation of brochures advertising our property was superior. Thank you John for all you have done to successfully sell our property. John Slidders would receive our highest recommendation at any time.

John is a very thorough and patient agent. His experience really shows through his knowledge and expertise of the market. He provided great assistance to us through the sale of our condo and our search for a new home.
The marketing efforts he employs do wonders to show the property. Excellent staging advice and professional sell sheets give the listing the edge over the competition especially in a condo where there were several competitive units being sold.

We are very happy with the service that John provides and will continue to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

It was awesome to have John's house sell within a few days of it hitting the market while other homes in the area sat there unsold. The house staging/design input was critical to harness our hard work when getting the house ready to sell. John Slidder's marketing design for the sale allowed us to get the top price in a shockingly short time. Oh and we earned Aeroplan points!

The next step was to buy a house in a west end within our budget. We worked closely with John Slidders and it took a matter of weeks to find our dream house. John Slidder's
approach was very professional and we look back remembering that we had a lot of laughs along the and an overall great experience. We have not hesitated to recommend him to our family and friends since we know that each client will be taken care of according to their needs and personal requirements.

I would even venture to say that for John and I it has been a Hollywood ending.

John sold our King St townhouse for us and did a fabulous job. We had daily updates and his features allowed us to track the activity on our own. He was always ready to help and answer questions. The virtual tour was amazing and the pictures made our house look stunning. He advertised immediately and our house sold very quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend John to everyone I know and I would use him again.

Thank you John!

John Slidders was our real estate agent when we searched for and purchased our beautiful home in Etobicoke. He is simply the best!! He was thorough and professional every step of the way even ensuring that we didn't waste time seeing homes outside of our parameters. His easy going style and demeanour were no indication of his finely honed negotiating skills and strategy at the bargaining table. he got us our dream home at a very good price.

Thanks for everything John!!

John helped us to sell our rental property in 2006. He was very professional and paid attention to every detail. H worked with our tenants during the sale in a quiet and respectful way. John was ever ready to to accommodate us . He did a lot of research to help us see the market value of our property. He advertised it and prepared a detailed prospectus that was given to potential buyers. Our house sold within one week for a price that was very acceptable to us. We would recommend John highly to anyone looking for a dedicated, experienced and professional agent

John succeeded in finding me a home that met my objectives in pricing, location, and timing. I would describe him as thorough, patient, and responsive. I found John's approach was to educate first to provide the buyer with a comfort level, and once that foundation was established, it enabled us to move decisively when the right property came along. I would recommend John to those seeking honest advice and professional service.
