Kim and her group are an amazing team! They really look out for your best interests and made the frustrating current house market situation as enjoyable as it could be. I would highly recommend using them as your realtor!!!! - Megan
When my wife and I decided to make a move, we interviewed numerous real estate agents. In our opinion, Kim Downey was by far the most professional and educated agent that we spoke to. I can honestly say that choosing to hire her was the best decision we could have made. Most importantly, she really listened to our needs and truly understood what our goals were. She helped us find the perfect home in a short period of time and made the entire process stress-free..she took care of everything from start to finish. We will absolutely use her again in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone looking at buying and/or selling. - Paul

Did you know that 95% of homebuyers view a property online before they see it in person? To ensure your house sells quickly, they utilize a state-of-the-art digital marketing strategy to ensure your home receives maximum exposure to the marketplace in addition to Realtor.ca and MLS Listings..
BUYING A HOME?
If you are considering buying your next house in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa or Clarington, Team Downey can help. Beginning with a Buyer Consultation, they take their time and use a methodical process to ensure they find you the right home for the right price. With no pressure and plenty of understanding, they will ensure that the home you buy, is the home you will be happy with for many years to come. In a competitive real estate market, Team Downey knows how important it is to constantly watch MLS for new listings on a daily basis to ensure they find the ones that might work best for their clients. They also go out to preview properties as well as target market areas in which their buyers are looking. They don't just sit around and wait for your new home to come on the market, they actively search to find it for you.
WORKING FOR YOU!
Team Downey is here to represent your best interests, regardless of whether you are buying or selling a home and they will work to protect you every step of the way. There are numerous decisions to be made during the purchase or sale of a home and they strive to educate and advise you every step of the way. Listing your house for sale or finding the house you are looking for, is only one small part of the process. Negotiating the agreement of purchase and sale is no small undertaking as there is so much more than the price to be dealt with. Every situation is unique and requires experienced and professional knowledge to ensure that the client is protected. There are over 200 optional clauses in the Toronto Real Estate Boards (TREB) software, and knowing when to use each one or how to know when a new custom clause needs to be written, is critical to making sure you are protected when transacting in real estate. Team Downey has over a decade of experience and prides themselves on their knowledge.
Having grown up in the area, attended local schools, and, lived most of their lives in and around the Durham Region, Team Downey knows the area very well and can offer you a first-hand knowledge and experience on the areas that would best suit your individual or family's needs.
They truly believe in the value of the local Realtor. Agents from out of town don't necessarily know the local reputation of various schools, they may not know what new building projects might be in the planning stages and quite possibly, don't know which neighbourhoods are up-and-coming versus the ones on the decline. As local realtors, they can help answer any questions you have regarding the various neighbourhoods across Durham Region. Being local realtors has also allowed Team Downey to develop relationships with a large number of other local real estate agents which can help benefit their clients when negotiating to buy or sell a house.
FULL TIME REALTORS!
Team Downey only employs full time realtors. With a number of part-time realtors in the business, they feel that there is a real danger of finding a real estate agent who is not qualified to protect your best interests. Would you trust your next surgery to a part-time doctor or allow a part-time lawyer to represent you in a major lawsuit? If you are considering buying or selling what might be your largest asset, why would you take the risk of using someone who does not take their profession seriously enough to dedicate themselves to doing it on a full-time basis. Team Downey is constantly upgrading and improving their skills by enrolling in various courses and educational seminars, conventions, webinars and so much more!
