There are few events of greater consequence in a person’s life than the sale, or purchase, of a home. It follows then, that the choice of a Realtor selected to represent you in these matters is of paramount importance. I am ever mindful of this responsibility and have been earning the confidence and appreciation of clients in York Region for more than 28 years now. My professional foundation is built on the elements of experience, integrity, respect, discretion and results.
I have enjoyed Top Five status in my firm virtually every year since beginning my real estate career. I achieved Top 100 status, out of over 19,500 RE/MAX Realtors in Canada, in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and finished 2015 in the top 1% of the 45,000 member Toronto Real Estate Board. During the past 10 years, since 2006, I have been personally responsible for in excess of $150 million in real estate sales.
Mine is a ‘hands-on’ approach to client relationships. While I employ a support team to facilitate the hours of tasks required to effectively represent my clients’ needs in today’s marketplace, I insist upon direct contact at all critical stages. I do not endorse the ‘team’ approach wherein client care is relegated entirely to an associate. In addition to the efficient front desk at RE/MAX Hallmark York Group Realty Ltd. and two part-time administrative employees, I am supported by one full-time licensed Realtor, my husband Fred Shipman. Together we represent over 60 years of York Region real estate experience.
In regards to the the representation of property sellers my Marketing Program is extensive and complete. It’s facets include:
• Multiple Listing Service exposure, with complete property details and professionally taken photographs, to over 42,000 Toronto Real Estate Board members.
• Worldwide exposure via my personal website, my business Facebook page, my Broker’s website, Realtor.ca, mls.ca and Youtube.
• Professional property photography , virtual tour and custom feature sheet production.
• Lawn sign with ‘Curbside Marketing’ rider allowing prospective buyers to immediately access listing information and photographs from the comfort of their own vehicle via their smartphone, and secure lockbox enabling ease of showing appointments.
• Open houses designed to invite Realtors to personally acquaint themselves with the property’s features which they, in turn, can relay to their own buying clientele.
• Print media, including local and regional newspapers.
• Showing feedback – I understand my client’s need to be kept abreast of showing activity and comments from showing agents and their buyer clients. While such feedback is only a professional courtesy, I make every attempt to secure buyer’s impressions after the property has been shown, and to pass them along to the home owner.
In regards to the representation of property buyers I personally commit to a rigorous program of listing inspection, as soon as properties come on the market, allowing me first-hand knowledge that I can then share with my buyers. Every buyer is sent detailed information of prospective listings, as they hit the market, via a property search program custom designed with their particular search criteria.
Perhaps the greatest pleasure afforded me by my success in my chosen career of real estate sales, aside from the client satisfaction and friendships developed over the past 28 years, is my ability to give back to my community. While I have been able to support many causes over my time in real estate, the one closest to my heart has been the Children’s Miracle Network and Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children. As long as I have practiced real estate I have contributed a deduction from every transaction to these organizations, and have been a top supporter for over 20 years. I was recently informed that I am among the 13 largest contributors in the Ontario/Atlantic Canada region during the calendar year 2015. But while the name on the plaque on the Hospital’s ‘Donor Wall of Honour’ may read Marion L Carcone, it is only there due to the support of every one of my clients. At the risk of sounding presumptuous, I’d like to thank you in advance for your support.
And so, If you aren’t already among my wonderful client friends, and you would like to enjoy the many benefits of entrusting your real estate needs to an experienced, knowledgeable professional, I welcome your call. It will be my pleasure to introduce you to the satisfying experience that the buying, and selling, of real estate can be.
On April 15th, 2016, at the RE/MAX Hallmark Award Ceremonies held at the Toronto Hunt Club, Marion was recognized with 3 awards by Debra Bain and Barbara Brindle. Marion would like to thank her loyal clients, and her colleagues, for making this day possible.
