Thank you so much for your efforts and openness to sharing this experience of selling our family home and helping us through it.
You continue to be both professional and heartful in your role and it is greatly appreciated.
Everything worked out very well even though it was a difficult and emotional undertaking.
May you enjoy the winter and get out canoeing as soon as the weather permits again. Please feel welcome to paddle in for a visit at the cottage, It would be great to see you.
Michael provided knowledgeable, courteous, friendly service. His work on our behalf was exemplary.
Totally professional, great depth of experience, and a commitment to finding what we wanted.
It did not feel like a business transaction, but an effort by someone who really 'cared' that my husband and i found something that was so important in our lives...a place to call 'home'. Michael did an outstanding job in finding us a place we love!

I am writing to let you know our experience with Michael Kavluk as a realtor.
When my aunt, who was an 89 year old spinster, passed away she left behind a beautiful old home on admiral road that had been in the family for about 70 years. Many family members had lived in the home and it was filled with lots of wonderful memories as well as mounds of accumulated stuff that had literally never been sorted or cleared out. It was quite an overwhelming task for my brother and myself.
We both lived north of the city and were out of touch with prices and contacts in Toronto. We contacted Michael and another agent to give us an evaluation. The contrast between the two was stark. The first whisked through and we received a glossy brochure with a cookie cutter estimate based on surrounding sales. Michael took lots of time, was clearly interested in us as well as the home. He gave us lots of advice long before we signed on with him.
Michael's level of expertise was evident from the beginning as was his compassion and understanding of both us and our situation. We were able to relax and trust him as our advisor. The people he brought in to stage and photograph the house were excellent. The care he took in overseeing the showings was fabulous. He guided us through the process of offers so we knew what to expect and had clearly pre-qualified the ones he presented, making our decision very easy and the sale straight forward.
Even after it was all done he kept an eye on the house as he knew we weren't around to do so. I would recommend michael without any reservation. He is highly experienced and exceptionally professional and honest.
Thank you so much for everything. It is hard to believe that it has only been about three weeks since we walked into our new home. What a whirlwind! Throughout the whole process i felt very well taken care of and completely confident in each of you, both representing us and guiding us. It has been exhausting and stressful and i appreciated you being there. I couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. You made selling my house easy and we are both so excited to move into the new one!! While we plan to be in fulton for a very long time, i would turn to you again in a second should we ever think of moving. Thank you again! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you...
Michael, our friendship aside, i wanted to express my sincerest appreciation for the outstanding job you and your team did on taking my house to market and the deal you were able to deliver for me. The end result exceeded my expectations and i can only attribute that to your experience, professionalism, strategy on when to list and pricing, communicating with the agents and your negotiation skills. I certainly got yours and Bosley's ‘A game’, but then i expect you always bring the same game. The whole process was painless and precision like and i always felt i was in the loop and covered. I'm still in awe that you were able to pull this off in 6 days and get six excellent offers to the table. I suspect that when the word gets out in my neighbourhood you will be getting some phone calls and i will have no hesitation in recommending you in the hood. Thank you again for the stellar performance.
Michael acted as our agent in the selling of our condominium in Toronto. Being relocated, split between two continents (Australia and Brasil), at the time of the financial crisis, and having only minimal contact with Michael through a brief interview before our departure, we couldn't have been more fortunate. Michael understood our objectives well, and was always prepared with suggestions to keep the property fresh in a difficult selling environment. He proved to be an excellent communicator. Reading this situation accurately and responding appropriately to a range of different potential buyers. He always kept us informed of progress in an effective but unobtrusive way. Most impressive was a feeling of always having a strategic and tactical advisor and never being pressured to make rushed decisions. Equally impressive was the care that Michael showed after the financial close.
This included helping to finalize our move, way above the normal 'call of duty'. Such an effort, at a time of real need from our side, was one of a personal friend, not a real estate agent. we also understood that michael went out of his way, to make the new clients feel immediately at home. Based on our experience, i would recommend Michael to any busy person seeking to buy or sell in the Toronto area.
