“There are a lot of people who will call themselves Realtors but Stevie is a true professional.
I had the opportunity to work with Stevie as I was buying my first condo. From our first meeting onward it was clear to me that I was speaking with someone who was passionate about this industry and knew what he was talking about. He took the time to explain the entire process to me so that I knew what I was getting into well beyond what was required of him.
As part of the process he made sure to thoroughly understand my needs so as to optimize our search. One thing that surprised me is that he put forth a case to look for units that were under my budget rather than suggesting I stretch for a more expensive unit. This showed me he has a lot of integrity and was not just out for a higher commission.
When it came time to view units he leveraged his experience to point out the ups and downs of each space that I may not have otherwise considered, and when I found a unit I liked he did not rush me to make a decision but instead insisted that he would be more than happy to continue searching in case there was an even better option out there.
During the offer phase he presented statistics for comparable units that have sold in the past so that I could make an educated offer to buy, which in turn was accepted under asking. Stevie also served as my mortgage broker where he did all the leg work to find me the best mortgage option at a good rate and on great terms. It was a pleasure working with Stevie and I would recommend him to others so that they too can benefit from his experience, passion, and integrity.”

“Thank you very much for your generous help in helping me secure my very first condominium purchase. Being a first time buyer, I was initially apprehensive and completely unaware of the process and the real estate market. You patiently and expertly guided me through the process – from the initial consultation until long after the actual purchase.
In the end, not only was I very happy with my purchase but also with your involvement and understanding of my situation. I was very impressed with you professionalism, knowledge, and communication skills. I would regard my first condo purchase not as an end, but rather as a beginning of a life-long use of your professional services. Once again, please, accept my sincere gratitude for the care and attention you had given to my real estate needs.”

“I always kept Stevie in mind as the Realtor I would use for my home purchase, so when the opportunity came for me to move forward with this step I reached out to Stevie.
This was the best decision I made. Stevie demonstrated patience, care, compassion, professionalism and knowledge in the industry. We must of viewed an upward of 50 homes but with each visit I was able to determine what I liked and what I didn’t like.
He educated me throughout the process. Stevie offered extra support to me in order to seal the deal. As a result, of a complete and positive experience I had a successful outcome. My experience with Stevie was super positive that I had to recommend him to another family member who is now also a home owner.”

“First met Stevie back in 2011 when I was looking a condo to lease… Then in 2012 when I decided to become a homeowner, I called Stevie again. Reason for that is he is the most knowledgeable professional in his business I have ever met in the GTA (and I have spoken to literally many dozens of agents).
Stevie was capable of simplifying and explaining very patiently every step of the process, which can be daunting and scary for a first time buyer. I felt very confident with Stevie’s support and impeccable interactions between the mortgage lenders. As a mortgage broker, I found through Stevie the best rate in the market, from the best lender.
And taking in consideration I had a very short history of credit in the country, I thank Stevie Crawford for matching my specific needs with the best mortgage product. I really recommend Stevie, for his persistence, his business acumen, and specially for his patience, and for always looking after his clients interests.”
