I am writing this note to say thank you for your efforts in helping my cousin buy and sell her home. Even though I am a realtor also, and only live 45 minutes away the real estate market in your specific area is so very different from where I work and live. I appreciate having you on our side to help as a local neighbourhood expert. I also appreciate your efforts. Not all realtors are the same and you are certainly one of the best I have met. Your genuine concern, unlimited patience and attention to detail are just few personality traits what makes you stand out from the rest. Thank you again for all of your hard work and enthusiasm. -Barbara Grumme, award winning Realtor
"John has integrity and he isn't there to just make a sale"
We had the opportunity to have John Damanis serve as our agent in buying our new home and selling our current house. His thoughtful, well-researched advice guided us through this unpredictable market which sold our home well above asking price. Along the way John has provided his services and was always readily available for us. He also referred professionals for home inspections, lawyer, stager, mortgage broker all of whom we would recommend as well.
John discussed with us in length about the home that we purchased when we were not sure and helped us to make an intelligent decision and not an emotional one. John has integrity and he isn't there to just make a sale. We are genuinely satisfied with the outcome of this experience and we will recommend John to our friends and any prospective clients! -Nicky and Joe
"Works relentlessly for his clients ... vast knowledge of market trends"
As someone who has dealt with many real estate agents, I can say with utmost certainty that John is a dedicated, competent professional who works relentlessly for his clients. From the initial consultation to the final closing John ensured that our deal would be a smooth transaction. What we appreciated most about John was his passion and zeal for the real estate industry, his innovative approach, and his vast knowledge of current and past market trends

"Sold for $25 000 more than previous offers with the other agent!"
I remain shocked at the return on my investment through the utilization of your services. In fact, the final offer completely paid the commissions, taxes and lawyer fee's over the last best offer I had received last year! Your commitment to personally staging my home, the suggestions you offered (insisted upon!) were totally worth the effort I made in preparing the home for sale.
Thanks to your tireless effort in working with me, holding open house events and the BBQ were all great idea's that created traffic, resulting in a return much higher than I ever would have expected. This is not something I could have managed selling privately and after talking to everyone I know they have never heard of an agent who has focused entirely on the sale from listing to closing like you do. You can be certain that I will want to introduce you to anyone I hear of who is selling or looking into the purchase of a resale home. -Brad
"John does what he says! We could not have asked a better experience"
Prior to putting our house on the market we took the time to interview a number of sales representatives to ensure we chose the right person to fit our specific needs -- we chose John.
John took the time to explain the whole process and listened to what was most important to us, then came up with a game plan to fit those needs -- John does what he says ! The plan worked to perfection and the house was sold in 6 days well over asking price. We could not have asked or expected a better experience working with John. If your thinking of buying or selling, I'd give John a chance, you won't be disappointed. -Rick & Judy
"John does what he says! We could not have asked a better experience"
I just wanted to say thank you for your support over the last several months. Your professionalism, knowledge, industry contacts and genuine support was better than we could have ever expected in the process of selling our house and purchasing our new house.
From your initial contact you won Brian over. He loves the personalized calendar and hopes to receive one each year. During our initial meeting you reviewed various options, provided great suggestions, improved our renovation plans and provided us with an interior designer, all of which helped maximize the selling price of our home.
When we were ready for the next step you offered the best advice and information on the market. Our home sold within the first few days of listing for over asking price. Then the time came to start looking for our new home. You were very helpful guiding us to find a house which met our family needs and won every negotiation, getting us a reasonable price for the property. Your mortgage partner saved us thousands of dollars and secured a rate that was almost half of our other quote. Thank you for everything.
I am sure we will have many happy years in our new home and will recommend your services to anyone we know who is interested in selling their home or purchasing a home. -Brian and Theresa
"Our house was sold in two days"
My husband and I had the great pleasure to work with John Damanis. We found John very accommodating with all our needs. He was conscientious & devoted in selling our home in a professional, friendly attitude. Our house was sold in two days. The trust and respect we feel for John, we have great confidence in referring him to our friends & family. Thank you John for all your care & support. -Dwight and Irene
"We highly recommend John Damanis to prospective buyers and sellers"
Going from nervous and uninformed, John has directed us through a great experience to where we are ecstatic about our new home! His calm and pleasant professional nature was what we needed to educate us and move us to where we were confident with our final choice. The knowledge and awareness he shared with us through a relaxing and light-hearted way made our house search very enjoyable and productive. We highly recommend John Damanis to prospective buyers or sellers and we would use him again for any future real estate need.

"As first time home buyers we truly benefited from John's real estate expertise"
As first-time home-buyers, we truly benefited from John’s real estate expertise and Brampton market knowledge. He was patient with us as he took the time to show us a variety of different styles of houses in various neighbourhoods, ultimately helping us find exactly the location and type of house we were really looking for. John was very flexible in accommodating the tight deadline we set for the process of finding our home, and gave us his undivided attention during our available evenings and weekends. John allowed us freedom to lead our search, but also provided us with several other interesting options to consider without any pressure.
When it came time to formulate an offer, John did an excellent job of ensuring we were getting good value for our investment by providing us with information on recent sales in the neighborhood and identifying potential upgrade or renovation expenditures we would likely face soon after making our purchase. John walked us through a variety of different scenarios that we may face in the negotiation process, and helped us craft fair offers for the properties we were interested in.
We truly appreciate all the time and effort John devoted to us through this journey, and are confident the home we have invested in will be perfect for years to come! -Luke and Laura
"We couldn't believe how quickly our property sold"
We worked with John as the listing agent for selling our first property, and to find us our next “step up” home. He worked fantastically in both capacities. Overall, he was always prompt to respond to any questions we had, and his answers were always very thorough. We knew he was working with other clients, but he never made us feel that way; we always felt like a top priority. With regards to selling our house, we were attracted to John’s commitment to ensure that our house showed as strongly as possible, and were very impressed with the information sheets he made and his dedication to hosting open houses. He quickly familiarized himself with our area, and closely worked with us to ensure our concerns and prerogatives were met. His expertise guided us but he never dictated, and it worked out fantastically; we couldn’t believe how quickly our property sold! On the other side of the table, John was fantastic in helping us to find our new home. He patiently accommodated our sporadic work hours to bring us to see dozens of properties; helped us narrow down our search, and focus on what aspects of a new home were important to us. He always kept an unbiased demeanour, pointing out a property’s potential and problems (and possible solutions) to ensure a mountain would not be made of a mole hill, nor that rose coloured glasses would lead to buyers remorse. With John, we could tell that he genuinely wanted to ensure that we would find the best house possible to make into our home. We eagerly recommend John to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. -Marc & Laura
"John went above and beyond in his search for our perfect home"
Being first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect from a real estate agent. John was exceptional. He listened to every need and want that we were looking for in our home and he definately delivered. He had worked with us for many months before finding us a house. John went above and beyond in his search for our perfect home. He was very patient and kind, as I know we were very picky clients. He found us our forever home and we also gained a new friend. We will definately contact John Damanis for our next property purchase.

"We are over the moon with how seamless everything went"
Our dream home venture was one that started off just that; as a dream. But with the right guidance through financing and home stagers the process became a reality. We are over the moon with how seamless everything went and we feel much of this is because of you. Thank you for being there through such things as reno’s and truly each step guiding us through our sale and purchase. We are now counting the weeks till we are in our dream home.

"John's plan was multi-leveled and true to his word"
After 30 years in Brampton the time to retire was upon us and we wanted to relocate to a slower, more rural area. Never having sold a home before I decided to apply my business approach to the task and this included getting three realtors to detail their plans to market our house.
John’s plan was multi-leveled and included a “soft launch” to gage buyer reactions to condition and price to be followed by a consultant’s opinion of enhancements that would highlight the unique features of our home. Once the plan was agreed he conducted an open house with the intention of moving to an MLS listing for the next step.
True to his word, John was hands on throughout the process and communicated on every detail as they occurred. The house sold quickly and at a fair market price. John’s attention to detail continued through to closing day and made the whole experience less stressful.

"The service you provided me definitely exceeded my expectations"
The service you provided for me, as my real estate agent, definitely exceeded my expectations. You are a very honest and caring person. I'm so glad that you helped me through this challenging process of purchasing a home. You have a gift of making people feel at ease by giving positive feedback and offering excellent suggestions. When I needed further clarification, you patiently explained some of the details using simpler terms to help me understand. My family members also felt very comfortable with you when they came for a tour of the home. They knew instantly that you were reliable, trustworthy and someone we would feel comfortable working with.
The people who you referred me to for the house inspection and mortgage were excellent. They also were very knowledgeable, helpful and considerate. Thanks to you, everything went smoothly as I hoped it would. You always followed through on your promises and went out of your way to make our meeting times and locations convenient for me. I really appreciate all of your hard work, thoughtfulness and dedication! I would highly recommend your services to potential buyers in the future.

"John Damanis is an exceptional agent, it was an honour to work with you"
John Damanis is an exceptional agent. My family was not very easy to work with. We had some very special needs. We went from Etobicoke to Brampton to Innisfil to Barrie.

Thank you very much for assisting us in every possible way. I am very much impressed by your professionalism, patience and your expert opinion. It was an honour to work with you.
