Vendor Review Jordan Lotoski
I had been using Jordans "see what your neighbors house sold for" thread for about 3 months prior to really contacting him to help us out. My wife and I got married in January of this year, and would be purchasing our first house.
We had been looking on MLS and going to a few open houses here and there while we put together our down payment so we had educated ourselves as to what we had wanted. Basically we were looking for something in an older neighborhood that had been renovated to the point we could live in it without having to do too much right off the bat and so that we could put some of the reno's on our mortgage opposed to coming out of pocket right away.
We were very specific on neighborhoods, Braeside, Woodbine/Lands, and Lake Bonavista and had been approved for more than we wanted to spend (like many others), but were pretty specific in the range we gave him. He also introduced us to a couple other neighborhoods that we did not know much about, but fit the bill nicely (Willow park, Maple Ridge, and Canyon Meadows)
The day I called Jordan he had us on the email update list for MLS for the communities we were most interested in, and instead of just waiting on us to say we wanted to see something he also checked into the communities we had not chosen and personally sent emails to us if he thought they were worth a see.
Jordan was very professional in dealing with us, we just recently decided on a house in Braeside after looking at about 15-20 houses with him. He has been helpful in every step of the process, and even negotiated in us getting the washer and dryer after the offer was accepted. He has been a pleasure to deal with through the entire process, and it was nice to deal with a realtor that was not in their 50's selling you on all these old school features of a house. He has a great eye for what could be done to a home, and was really great at not wasting our time with certain houses. He answered all of our questions right away, even the stupid ones. He also went above and beyond the call of duty as he had even helped us out when it came to possible landscaping contractors, home inspectors, and even when he thought the mortgage rate to be too high that we were offered (which led to me fighting with them and getting 0.40 off what we were originally offered).
Overally the experience was fantastic and I'm not sure how much business he drums up from Beyond here, but I will make the suggestion to anyone on here that if they are looking for a realtor to contact Jordan. He was just an overall pleasure to deal with, and we owe him many thanks.
