Many thanks Jeffrey - yes of course we are very pleased with your service. It's been a long road with several unexpected turns but we are happy to have got to the close. We very much appreciated your attention to the various details associated with the sale of our house and are grateful that you went above and beyond what should be expected of a realtor. If we move back and are looking again for a property in Toronto we will certainly be back in touch. Best regards, C L & K L

We were living in Montreal and eventually needed an agent in Toronto to find an ideal condo near our children and grandchildren - one that also met our prerequisites for subway access, green spaces etc. A tall order. We retained Jeffrey on the advise of friends. Jeffrey was a tireless and patient agent. He shared his knowledge of the environments, history of the areas, statistics of both buildings and their builders and so on. After some intense hunting, Jeffrey found the perfect location and was most helpful in guiding us to a successful conclusion of the transaction, particularly in light of our unfamiliarity with the bizarre Toronto marketplace. Of the many agents we have used in the past, Jeffrey stands out as one if not the best we have encountered. Donna-Lee and David Kauffman

My name is Simon Poole and I''m writing to tell you about how Jeffrey Joseph helped my fiancée and I find our wonderful home. Jeffrey has know me my entire life. Before I was born, he sold my family their first house in the Annex and since then he has helped my family buy and sell 4 houses (mostly within Forest Hill). In each transaction, he found the perfect house for my parents at the time. In fact, he is such a constant contact for our family that he has also become a good friend. When my fiancée and I decided to purchase our first home, we knew exactly who we wanted to work with. Jeffrey''s knowledge of the industry, housing market and trends were extremely helpful for us in making a decision. We wouldn't just look at the house, but also learn about its construction and history which was an eye-opening experience for us. He worked tirelessly over roughly 2 months to draw listings and arrange appointments for us to see the houses. Most days, we would see 7 houses in a row! It also goes without saying that Jeffrey is outgoing and a truly genuine person. He enjoys conversation and made us feel at ease walking us through each space. We felt supported even after moving into our house and appreciated that he followed up to see how we were settling in. Overall a fantastic experience and we couldn''t be happier with our decision to work with Jeffrey. Friendship aside, he is a true professional. Thank you, Simon Poole & Karen Edwards

We have to date made $2-250,000 (on paper only and pre-capital gains tax) following Jeffrey's advice. I am sure this makes us no different from many of his clients but what is noteworthy about our case is that the advice he gave us, while in our interest, was completely contrary to his own. Jeffrey was our agent when we purchased the house we presently live in. At the time we owned a house which we intended to sell to finance the purchase of the one with respect to which we had just signed an agreement of purchase and sale. We told him we would like to give him a listing to sell that house. He said the following: " I'm not in the habit of turning down listings but instead of selling why don't you mortgage that house to raise the downpayment on the new one and that way you will have two houses?" By doing this he was turning down a commission of perhaps $35,000. But it demonstrates how Jeffrey put his clients" interest above his own. The house we would have sold but for his advice has only gone up in value since that time and more that carries itself as a rental property. MURRAY TEITEL, Barrister

Not sure how we came to find Jeffrey Joseph but we're glad we did. We've used various realtors in the past to sell, to buy or to list units for rental. It wasn't until we found Jeffrey that we stopped looking. His knowledge of the market and his ability to assist us with sales, purchases, leases, rentals and tenant issues has been second to none. He is a real professional and extremely effective at what he does. He knows where to advertise and how. He knows what the market will bear and how to best position properties to move. Jeffrey is an exceptional agent who always works hard for his clients and has obtained consistently excellent results for us. I echo the words in other testimonials- Jeffrey is professional, knowledgeable, dedicated, diligent, trustworthy, accessible and highly, highly recommended.

Jeffrey and Irene Joseph have been my real estate agents for over 32 years. They helped me relocate several times. Either Jeffrey or Irene have always been available, always in good humour and always there for me for what I wanted not what was best for them on their timetable and their energies. They have helped me with my children to find rentals. They go beyond the call of duty ( working on offers after midnight) with pizza and without complaint. Jeffrey helps me create a price point and even encourages me sometimes to offer less than I would have thought was reasonable. I know I can always count on Jeffrey. His love of the industry and knowledge has given me confidence. Countless afternoons looking at properties has always been a pleasure! Thanks so much, trust is paramount and you both are the best!

Mr. Harvey Kalles, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., 2145 Avenue Rd., Toronto, ON M5M 4B2 Dear Harvey; I am writing this letter as a reference for Irene and Jeffrey Joseph. I have know the Josephs for nearly 20 years and they have helped me buy and sell real estate in mid-town Toronto on a few occasions. I can't say enough about their experience, professionalism, expertise, genuine caring and concern that the house be the 'right fit'. On the last deal in particular, the Joseph's took care of me like I was family. They guided me with skilled and experienced hands through every step of the process and went above and beyond the role as Realtor to make sure I got the right house at the right price, with the right financing. Truly, I am not one for writing glowing reference letters, however, in the case of the Josephs, nothing else will do. The service they provided to me was impeccable, and I would recommend them again to anyone and everyone. You are fortunate to have the Josephs as part of your team. Yours Sincerely, Marlene Kazman.

Dear Michael Kalles, We feel that you should know just how pleased we have been with the services of Jeffrey and Irene Joseph. Our son Michael recommended Jeffrey to us, and from the minute that we called him, we were put at ease with his readiness to help. The very next morning, Jeffrey came to see us, armed with a printout of houses in our area, showing asking prices and amount which many of them had sold. He Inspected our home, asked for relevant documents, and ordered a diagram of the house from a company called Plan-It. He took pictures of both the inside and outside of the house, made several good suggestions for small details that might improve the saleability of our bungalow. He ordered 3 or 4 open houses for agents to view the property. Jeffrey discussed realistic pricing options, and telephoned us whenever he had a report, (good or otherwise) so that we could see how the various prospects were viewing us. Through all of this, Jeffrey and Irene were cheerful, supportive, and optimistic. Jeffrey's experience coupled with his manner made us very happy to have him on our side. It would be a pleasure to refer friends or neighbours to his care, if, as, and when the opportunity presents.. He does your company proud. Sincerely; John E. Speck, DDS, FRCD Professor Emeritus, Faculty Of Dentistry, University of Toronto.

I want to take this opportunity to thank both Irene and Jeffrey for their professionalism and understanding while selling our family home of over 50 years and purchasing a new condominium for our parents. This was an emotional experience for us all and their gentle approach was greatly appreciated. They came prepared for our initial meeting having done their homework about the homes in our area. They advised us of the price points and were extremely accurate with their estimates. At no time was there any pressure to sign to accept or place an offer. They simply educated us. They were flexible in arranging times to view condominiums. They made this emotional time a learning experience for us all and helped alleviate any added stresses associated with buying or selling a home.

Dear Mr. Kalles; I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know of the exemplary service provided to me by Mr. Jeffrey Joseph. He and his wife Irene were an invaluable source of assistance to me in my attempts at locating a suitable condominium to purchase. In very short order Jeffrey was able to identify my needs and concerns and was able to respond accordingly. As a result, I am the very happy owner of a wonderful condominium. I found Jeffrey's service to be exceptional and is a person that I will be sure to do business with again in the future. He will also be a person that I will recommend to those colleagues, friends and family members who will soon be in the real estate market themselves. I do hope that Jeffrey's efforts will not go unrecognized by you. I look forward to doing business with Jeffrey and your firm in the future. Yours truly, Stephen B.
