With our combined experience, we have encountered many obstacles and challenges along the way, and will put our experience to work for you to ensure it doesn’t happen to you.

We’ll ensure that the price, dates and terms are in your favour so you can rest easy knowing that you’re protected.

We’ll ensure that we are guiding you every step of the way during the due diligence process – from reading and interpreting strata documents, to educating you on their implications, to ensuring you are organized financially, to representing you during the home inspection – we’ll make sure that you have the knowledge and tools you need to make an informed decision.
