I have been busy leasing xxxxxxxxxxxxx. It took six weeks to find someone decent, and I rejected seven applicants in a row, but I finally found a great candidate. All his references describe him as reliable and his landlord says he pays rent like clockwork. The lesson in leasing is not to compromise with a weak tenant and keep marketing like crazy until the right one comes along.
I could not agree more with your latest email on people paying over asking price.The market must be accelerating even more than a month or two ago.
We very much appreciate the work you have done in helping us to achieve a portfolio of ten rental properties, and in disposing of Pond Mills. We would not have known where to start were it not for having benefit of your expertise.
Thank you for helping my clients estate dispose of the seven properties, I and the family are quite pleased with the prices we received, we now have one more property to go, which is a private residence, see the details below and thank you again.
The place is going great!! We have an incredible tenant
that pays early every month and she's super quiet. We
have been really pleased with the location and
neighbourhood and how everything has been with the house.
We walk right downtown in minutes and never have to worry
about parking! I would suggest this location to anyone, although
we keep looking for similar properties for ourselves in the same
neighbourhood for the future....
Nothing was really wrong with the sewer system other then large
root buildup but once we got a competent plumber in that had
a large enough root cutting machine we were back in business!
Thanks so much for all you did to get us this place and for the
wisdom and experience you had to guide us into making a very
attractive offer to get this house. Taylor and I really enjoy it.
Anna was an incredible resource for us as well. We were really happy
we went with her and look forward to working with her again in the future.
We will definitely be using your office in our future home buying process!
Thanks for the follow up!
Derek & Taylor
Just a brief note to thank you for selling my two income properties by Western. I know the 6 bedroom was a nightmare and thanks for taking the time with the Fire Marshall, the electrician, drywallers and getting the garbage guy out to clean up.
I thought the deal was off a few times, thanks for keeping it on track. At times I thought I was going to lose money on it but in fact, I did far better than expected.
I have included a little token of my appreciation for what you did for me and my family, and my father has asked me to offer you any of his various time shares for a week. Let him know, it'syours.
Just like you said, we are now into our 11th condo that we have bought through you and you know, as I teach this, your systematic approach was the same as our first one, the only change being we did not know what or how do anything when we bought our first one.
Thank you for your patience and setting us straight on the numbers, you have saved us I don't know how many headaches or thousands.
We are now preparing to buy our 12th at the end of the year, of course, with your guidance. Oh, and thanks for the name of the furnace guy, he's great, we even had him come to our house and look at our A/C.
Thank you for your follow up email. We are very pleased with Paul's help for finding and buying the property. Paul was very efficient and effective on each step of the buying process. He was also very helpful to us in finding a home inspector, a mortgage agent and a lawyer for closing the deal. It was a pleasant journey for us.
I am sure we will have more opportunities to work together in the near future.
Thank you for the excellent help.

When I was looking at places with you last year you had mentioned purchasing gift cards for your tenants at Christmas time. I took your idea and bought a couple gift cards and the tenants seemed to love it!! Inexpensive and pretty simple, but they felt it was very thoughtful and like you said...how many landlords give tenants gifts??
All is well with the properties so far, I really appreciate the education you helped provide me in 2012...nothing beats the gift of knowledge. It's hard to believe I went from never owning a property only 6 months ago to now have two income properties in London running!! You really emphasized the philosophy that if you keep your place proper, and treat your tenants well, then you will have success (as opposed to the slumlord philosophy lol).
Thanks and best of luck in the new year!! I will definitely be using Envelope for all my future purchases!!
ps...If any interesting properties or places pop up, I'm always interested in new ideas!! lol
