Harpreet was helpful, knowledgeable, hard-working, responsive and easy to work with. I would highly recommend working with him, especially if you are looking to purchase a condo downtown. He is the best!
Harpreet was the first realtor I've worked with and he made everything so simple and easy for me, especially since I was moving to Toronto from Ottawa. He went above and beyond, following up with me after we've looked at apartments and worked so hard to find me what I was looking for. All in all, working with Harpreet made finding my dream home possible and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him. 10/10 will recommend him to my friends and family looking to lease/buy!
We were so fortunate to come into contact with Harpreet and Jonathan while looking for a condo rental in Toronto! They truly made us feel as though we were their only clients and that they were working night and day to find us a great rental, and they probably were! They made what usually is a very stressful situation more of an adventure, always staying positive and ensuring us that they would find us the perfect place, and they did! Top notch professionalism and support every step of the way. We will definitely call upon them when we are ready to buy our first home!
Harpreet was dependable and there when we needed him. He was quick to answer all of our concerns and always had a smile on his face.
Harpreet made getting my first apartment a breeze, he was very engaged and genuinely wanted to help. He gave excellent advice and really took the time to make sure I got exactly what I was looking for. Will definitely use his services again in the future!
Harpreet was extremely helpful and very patient helping me find my rental. I highly recommend and will be calling him again whenever I move. Got me the best place to live for the price I wanted. First time rental Harpreet made sure everything was in order. Awesome Realtor
In my search for an apartment, Harpreet consistently went above and beyond the call of duty to not only make sure I was aware of every twist and turn of the leasing process, but to also ensure we were on the same page all throughout. Very knowledgeable in what he does and is there for you any second of the day. Not much more you can ask for!
I would definitely recommend Harpreet Sandhu. I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for me and my husband. You have done a great job and stood up to your words. If anyone needs a realtor in GTA please contact Harpreet. I like your professional work, immediate response and knowledge of the local real estate market. Five cheers to you!
Harpreet is an amazing agent. He is so polite, kind and accommodating. Took the time to explain the whole process and addressed all our concerns and countless questions. He took care of our condo while we were away and has gone above and beyond to help us sell and close our condo in Mississauga so could move on to buy our new house in Ottawa. It was a real pleasure working with him and would highly recommend him to all my friends in GTA. We are forever grateful to him
Harpreet made finding a home in Toronto so easy; he took what I was looking for in different areas and found me something I love with my requirements. He was so consistent with communication and always provided me with updates on the apartments I looked at; he was also very diligent with his research on apartments. All around a wonderful realtor to work with and will absolutely recommend to my family and friends!
Such a great experience purchasing my first home with Harpreet. He put in a lot of time and effort to make sure I got a property that was in my best interest. Even after my purchase he helped me get it ready to rent and find a tenant! Beyond helpful/handy and pays amazing attention to get you want you need!
I have used Blue Elephant Realty for the past few years with amazing success. I have never met a more caring, knowledgeable, and hard working group of real estate professionals before. From start to finish they made the process of buying and selling my home easy. Thanks Blue Elephant!
I have used many realtors in the past and the service provided by the Blue Elephant Team was simply second to none. My home was sold the day it was listed and Blue Elephant handled every single aspect that followed. Great Great company and a pleasure to deal with.
Most people just get on a website like mine and start shopping before they even know what goes into buying a property. The more you know about what you are doing the better experience you will have. Input your email below to download our guide.
A Realtor is so much more than someone who just takes you in showings. The true strength of a Realtor is in the additional value that they bring to the table. Your Realtor should introduce you to the best mortgage broker, lawyer, moving company etc. Your Realtor should know the neighbourhood that you are looking at inside and out. Your Realtor should be an expert negotiator and provide insight into how much you should spend on a particular property.
The biggest mistake that most buyers make is going online and using a “what can I afford” calculator to determine their budget. The first step that every buyer should take when purchasing a property is to sit down with a mortgage professional (not your part time cousin) to determine how much you can afford.
The city is a big place with a lot of properties. The more you focus the better chance you have of finding the best property for the best value. If you try to look in too many places it’s like finding a needle in a haystack and ultimately it will leave you frustrated.
Of course we all want a west facing property with views of the city, a massive balcony, split bedrooms and a massive kitchen island. The reality is if you include too many wants in your search you may be left on the sidelines for a long time. Make sure to properly balance your wants vs needs and be realistic about what’s available.
NOW you can start your property search, and every serious buyer needs to be getting automatic property updates. It’s a crazy competitive market out there right now and buyers need every advantage they can get. Our automatic property updates services makes sure that you get the properties that Harpreeter most to you delivered to your inbox the second they hit the market. This is 24/48 hours faster than you will see listings on Realtor.ca or most other Realtor’s websites! You can sign up in a couple of seconds by clicking the button below.
Once you find the perfect place you need to move fast! We don’t ever rush our clients, but if you have properly prepared it won’t feel rushed. We know how hard it is to find amazing places and we simply want our clients to have them! When making an offer your Realtor will protect your best interests by including conditions with the offer and negotiating with a maximum price in mind to ensure you don’t overpay or go past your comfort level.
Once an offer is accepted (even before it goes “firm”) you typically have 24 hours to deliver the deposit check to the seller. The deposit amount is negotiated during the offer process but it is typically 5% of the purchase price. If you deliver the check even 1 minute more than 24 hours, the deal is technically void. Moving money isn’t always fast so make sure to have your deposit prepared in advance.
If your offer contained conditions like a finance condition, you have a specific amount of time to “waive” the conditions or the deal will become null and void and your deposit will be returned to you. If you waive the conditions, the deal becomes “firm” a and you are obligated to now close on the property. Neither side can back out at this point.
Your lawyer and mortgage broker will set up meetings with you for a couple of days before closing to sign off on the final documents. At this point your job is to book the movers and get your finances in order. The lawyer will let you know exactly how much you need to bring with you when you meet, but it will include the remained of your downpayment, land transfer tax and legal fees. Once you have done that, you get the keys to your awesome new property!
