We were so fortunate to connect with Mark McDade during fall 2014 and to have the opportunity to work with such a dedicated individual to acquire a new home. Our circumstances were complicated: house-hunting had been thrust upon us and took place from a bedside at the Owen Sound Hospital.
Mark understood this and carefully researched homes that met our accessibility requirements, were located close to medical and support services and yet kept us close to nature.
He did extensive research, knowing we had a very short timeline to acquire a new residence. He personally vetted properties on our behalf and consulted with designers, contractors, occupational therapists and other professionals to get quick answers to our accessibility questions. He was incredibly patient as we tried to define what our emerging needs and challenges were going to be (believe me, we were not very good at it).
Through it all, he was incredibly patient, compassionate and conscientious. He understood the pressure we were under to find a home – very quickly – in a new city. And He succeeded! The house he discovered for us is simply perfect! We love it more and more each day. It is gorgeous inside and out: well-built, light and bright, cozy and warm, spacious and well laid-out. It has high-end finishes and is located in a charming, friendly neighbourhood. The home was built by a renowned local contractor, is located just minutes from several communities and is only 15 minutes to the nearest hospital. The landscaping is out of this world and the sunsets take our breath away. To say we love it – both inside and out – is an understatement.
We were very blessed to meet Mark and count ourselves fortunate to have had such a great realtor. We currently have two other listings with him and we really appreciate how closely he stays in touch regarding the sale of the properties. Mark is innovative, detail-oriented, an excellent communicator and an attentive listener. He gives excellent advice and guidance for both novice and seasoned home-buyers. We give him the highest of recommendations – without hesitation.
