Mike provided great support with the sale of my house. He gave excellent advice on timing, preparation work, and strategy and I was more than pleased with the result. I also appreciated timely and cost-effective service from Mike's skilled team of service providers including electrical work by Noor, painting and repair from John and his team, and staging service by Casey. They all worked in alliance with Mike to make the preparation and sale of my house smooth sailing. I recommend Mike and his team wholeheartedly.

Candace Kaszas helped my partner and I find our first home and we couldn't be happier with the level of service we received! She is warm and approachable, so helpful and full of knowledge. We are first time buyers so we had a lot to learn! Throughout the process, Candace kept us informed, was very understanding of our needs and we were able to find our sweet home in no time, even in Covid times! We are so amazed and grateful! Her teammate Mike Clarke also deserves a kudos. We had a great experience, thank you!
When my siblings and I recently made the tough and emotional decision to sell our family home of 45 years, we were advised “to find a really, good agent.” Due to our inexperience, we knew we wanted to deal with someone whom we could trust. Mike Clarke was our first choice. Mike Clarke was a familiar, “HouseSold” name throughout Scarborough and East York. After meeting with Mike, we were confident he had the expertise and integrity we were looking for. After an almost year-long courtship, we were ready to list with Mike, when the unforeseeable Covid-19 lockdown paused everything. Several weeks later, when it appeared that the economy would be re-opening soon, Mike advised us that it was time to put our family home on the market. In the midst of the lockdown, we listed on a Thursday and by Monday Mike presented us with nine different offers! On what could have been an extremely stressful Monday afternoon, Mike calmly and patiently guided us through the multiple offers. He negotiated back and forth, and eventually it was sold over asking – on Monday before 8:00 p.m.!! We slept well that Monday night – thank you Mike! If you are looking for a real estate agent in these unprecedented times, you need an experienced, professional agent whom you can trust. We highly recommend Mike Clarke.

After 30 fabulous years in the same house, we chose to move out of the city and build our dream home. We have been watching agents come and go over the years but Mike Clarke has always stood out as the most recognizable name in our neighbourhood and for good reason – he delivers what he promises. Mike presented a packaged that detailed a variety of methods he would use to market our home including brochures, photos, on-line videos, social media, Facebook and emails blasts to his many hundreds of followers, among other things. He presented the steps involved in staging our home, determining the price point, and most importantly, how he would handle the multiple offers that we would receive during the course of the sale. We were impressed with his presentation and follow-up. His knowledge, experience, professionalism and fun personality landed the listing! The level of service we received was over the top. What stood out most about Mike was that he listened and responded. We felt he gave us 100% of his time and energy and it showed. Mike assured us that we would be involved in all steps of the sales process and we felt confident we were in very good hands. We were thrilled with the staging of our home and how it looked on-line and in the brochure. Mike was available and kept in touch during the entire sales process, in fact we spoke numerous times daily. We realized that Mike is so well respected and connected within the industry that he is on a first-name basis with a majority of agents in the city. If a Lawyer is required at a late hour, as was the case for us, he has one on-hand ready to answer questions at any time of night or day. Mike has an ability to read people and to control the offer process when communicating with other agents. He can narrow down their wants and needs - when it counts the most – then close the sale with top offers. We trusted Mike with the biggest sale of our lives and he didn’t disappoint. We highly recommend Mike and his team at Keller Williams.

Our only regret about the Mike Clarke team is that we were unaware of the excellent service he could have provided when we first bought our house 20 years ago (we used another agent when we bought because we didn't know what we didn't know). However, now that we are sellers. we couldn't be happier with the service we received, not only from Mike, but from the entire team (that means you too, Candace!). What a great bunch of people. They have a keen eye for business, but they do so without losing sight of the human factor, which is really the bottom line when all is said and done. Well done, team Mike!

Our initial experience with Mike Clarke was 24 years ago when we bought our first home. His guidance, experience and support during the process was so memorable, and his ongoing check-in support over the years, meant he was the first person we considered when planning for our current needs. (P.S. – We were right again!) In very short timelines, Mike and his team provided a marketing strategy that suited our needs and expectations, and proceeded to successfully execute on the strategy. Mike's approach yielded immediate results, receiving an offer within a matter of hours of the first viewing. The ongoing clarity and counsel he provided during this time kept us grounded and focused on the big picture. Mike's team also helped us find our new Home – also within record timelines, and with tremendous counsel and support. The negotiating support provided on the purchase was as with the sale, on point, and market appropriate. We are confident both negotiations met and exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Mike and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. They work tirelessly to ensure that your goal to buy or sell a home is as smooth a process as possible. If we ever sell this new condo or need to purchase another one, we would definitely utilize Mike again. Thanks Mike and Team – you played a major role in making our dream a reality.

My husband and I, as well as my brother and his wife have used Mike Clarke and his team on a number of occasions, to sell my parents' house and our own home. Mike has been in the business for a long time and is very knowledgeable and professional. He is very responsive and deals quickly with any issues that might arrive. He really made the whole process less stressful as we had complete confidence in his ability. His team was also very professional and wonderful to deal with. I would highly recommend Mike and his team!
When we purchased our home in 2008, we envisioned it being the place we'd stay in forever to start and grow a family. As the years went by, our needs changed and with the way the real estate market has taken off in the past couple of years it made sense to consider a move. We contacted Mike and described our situation and right away we knew we made the right choice in partnering with him to sell our home. Mike was honest, confident and professional throughout. Mike's recommendations were spot on and his team - Helen and Elizabeth, specifically - was wonderful to work with. His recommendation to bring in Casey from 184 Decor was a game-changer. Casey helped us transform our home into a truly attractive and appealing property. We can't thank these people enough! At the end of the day, we ended up getting multiple offers well in excess of the list price and, quite frankly, our expectations as well. We realize that the success of real estate professionals is built very much on reputation and Mike and his team have done everything to uphold that reputation. We couldn't be happier with the way things have turned out and would recommend the Mike Clarke Team to anyone looking to sell their home. You could probably say that Mike is a HouseSOLD name! :)

Thank you Candace ! We are very glad that we had you as our listing agent. You made the whole process of selling our house as smooth as it can be, all the way from start to end. You cleverly appreciated the key selling features of our home and suggested a strategy that lead to a successful outcome. We were also very impressed by the quality of the virtual tour and the hand-out materials. We would definitely recommend you to anyone.

We had the pleasure of working with Candace Kaszas to sell our home and all we can say is amazing!!! We worked with two different realtors simultaneously, one on the sale of our Toronto property (which Candace handled) and another on the purchase of an out of town property and wished we had gone with her on both. The level of care and professionalism, that Candace brought was astounding. The moment we met her we knew she was the one to work with. Candace brought an element of human touch to the entire sale process and put our minds at ease during an extremely stressful time for us. We highly recommend Candace to all of our friends looking to buy or sell. Trust us, you will definitely be in great hands!
By: R & JP Serel
Thank you all for a successful sale! We are very happy with the outcome! Your sales team did an excellent job of exposing the property as there was quite a bit of traffic through the house. In the end only the very interested parties submitted offers; we thought there would have been more, but you only need one right match for the home - and you found them. Thank you all again!

Thanks to the ‘Team’ for a job well done on everyone’s part in this very emotional time in our lives. We never thought selling the house would involve so much. The Mike Clarke Team made it that much easier. Thanks to everyone! From the stager, to the photographer, the whole Mike Clarke and KW team, and last but not least , Mike himself, who was always there for us to answer any questions we had and whose vast experience and kind ways guided us through to the very last day!

Candace, you totally set the standard for us when it comes to what we look for in a real estate agent!! You are the best!
By: Beverley BG
Mike Clarke is the best agent around. We lived in our Beach home for 27 years and during that time I took notice of all the real estate agents in the area. I noticed the volume of homes listed and sold and Mike was always the leader. When we wanted to sell, we did not hesitate in choosing a agent. Mike sold our home in 4 days. He definitely lives up to his reputation. I recommended him to friends and they were equally satisfied.
By: Anthony & Melissa
You quickly gained our confidence by the way you presented yourself and the well-thought out plan you put together to ensure the best outcome. What we particularly appreciated is your market insights, thorough research, wealth of knowledge and very clear explanations to ease our decisions.

Thank you for being supportive and appeasing in helping us sell our home and buy a new one. In our neighbourhood, houses move fast and a lot of agents have tried to lure us into dealing with them. What differentiated you from others is the level of comfort, listening, respect and attention you provide.
By: Debbie & Steve
If we decide to move again in the future, you will be the first people we call. When we decided to purchase our new house, we had no idea how difficult it would be to sell our current home …Everyone was so helpful and the level of customer service we received was outstanding! You helped us sell our house and now we can finally get on with the next chapter of our lives!
The details in setting things up for the sale, the advice, the advertising you produced – all were very well done. It appears that the team runs like a greased wheel – which is a valuable asset. Kudos and keep up the good work and maintain your human touch. This approach to service is “hot property”!!

We want to thank you and your team for making the whole process as easy as it could be. We were very fortunate to have Candace Kaszas help us find our new condo, and she really came through for us.
By: Marilyn & David
We love our new place! We have only great things to say about everyone on your team. Very impressed with the way our house was presented to buyers and your ability to put us in contact with the people we needed to make this happen.
I had the opportunity to buy a house and I needed the assistance of a professional realtor. The Mike Clarke team advised me what I needed to do, organized other parties and the end result was a very smooth and stress free transaction.
By: W. Bull
Bottom line, Candace Kaszas was excellent! She listened to my son’s needs and was extremely helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her or contact her again!
