Learning, the act of gaining knowledge, is a craft unto itself. It starts with questions - the what ifs, how abouts, whys, . . . leading from the unknown to the known, through inquiry, experimentation, travel, and of course pure accident.

This is about how it happens in my life.

This is what Partnering looks like

A little piece of paradise.
That's how I have referred to the "bright and cheerful" East York bungalow that Dear Hubby and I have called Home since 2003. 



Home.

It's a powerful word, one that evokes a deep instinctual sense that merges person with place.

When it came time for us to sell our Home the question was not "do we get a realtor" but "who do we use".   As a long time Airmiles collector Century21 was always an option, until Dear Hubby came Home one day and said a friend from the old days was a realtor, and we should contact her.

That's how I met Helga Teitsson of Helga's Homes.

Real estate is a competitive business, and like many industries that have historically relied on information asymmetries, the Internet has changed the landscape for ever.
In some cases this means huge billboards and other forms of large scale advertising, followed by flyers in the mail box. 
But ask yourself: how does that help you, the client, sell or buy your home?

Helga Teitsson takes a different approach.  Strange to say, but she knows it's not about her. She knows it's about the Home, whether buying or selling.  Helga brings her years of expertise and market knowledge into every relationship. And when it comes to selling, she literally invests in the process of making sure your Home hits the market at its best.  She becomes your partner.
How?
  • Within 24 hours Helga dropped off 30 boxes to help us get started with the decluttering.
  • She arranged for Hendrik Glastra CSP of HG Staging and reDesign to come in, give advice on furniture placement etc; he provided all the extras such as throws, pillows and lamps.
  • She also had Alex Morias of Video Listings come in to do the photos and video that made our Home come alive online.
  • Jeff Clarke CET of Baker Street Home Inspection Services did a pre-listing inspection thanks to Helga.
Our house sold in late March, in 5 days, over asking, almost 2 months after I first met Helga.  At that first meeting she made it clear that getting our Home sold was as important to her as it was to us. She marshaled her own resources, brought in her trusted partners, and guided us through a tumultuous process smiling and laughing.

So, if you're looking for a Home in Toronto, contact Helga Teitsson of Helga's Homes.  You'll be really glad you did.
