A Visual Biography ... (but 'wordier' business stuff below)

About Michael Kavluk: 

I have been a full time active real estate broker in Toronto since 1980. With 37 years of continuous experience - 25 of them as the president of Oxford Real Estate Ltd.-  I have developed a comprehensive understanding of Toronto's established neighbourhoods, their merits, possibilities, values, and the evolving nature of the real estate business itself. In addition to this longstanding brokerage experience, my expertise includes 26 years as a certified appraiser. My proven strengths as a real estate broker include:

 

Evaluation expertise:

With a well-studied understanding of Toronto's real estate market, and the discipline which accompanies my experience as a certified appraiser, I spend an exceptional amount of time carefully assessing each property's fair market value before listing the property for sale. I then apply that conclusion to the 'market of the moment'. Advising clients on the most effective/rewarding pricing strategy is critical to the successful sale of your home. 

 

Marketing Strength:

I am up-to-date on the marketing side of a real estate transaction. I understand that the market is driven in large part by the Internet, and i appreciate the importance of a clear, accurate, and appealing message within that medium. My firm has associations with the city's top stagers, photographers and virtual tour directors, as well as a dedicated in-house marketing department charged with creating advertising which is both timely and effective. 

 

Astute Negotiation Skills:

Experience plays an irreplaceable role in my approach to each project. After 37 years as a real estate company president, and broker, I have participated in many hundreds of real estate negotiations.  I understand the critical balance between patience and assertiveness, as well as the importance of fairness, clarity and straightforwardness in the course of negotiating a transaction. Continuous, ongoing attention to detail during the process is a skill which stems from nearly four decades of full time, hands-on real estate brokerage experience.
