I am the pastor of St. Joseph Orthodox Church. I have known Michael Plomaritis for several years and our Parish relies on him for real estate service and guidance.
Several years ago we outgrew our former church building in Toronto. We unsuccessfully attempted to find a larger property that would suit our needs. However, once we began working with Michael things changed.
He immediately helped us assess our goals and helped us define our needs. His plan for a sale and purchase was practical and very effective. Through his marketing and guidance, we enjoyed a multiple offer situation on our sale and, ultimately, at a higher price than we initially expected prior to Michael’s involvement.
Our purchase was in a location we had not previously considered due to our unfamiliarity with the area. The result is that we are very pleased with our new location, our property, the purchase price and the entire negotiation process. Our new property has value for our Parish that goes far beyond the obvious physical aspects – it suits our community’s character and use very well. Michael handled everything well, with good communication and a pleasant manner, always in our best interest, and he was sensitive to all matters around our Church organization and procedures.
I was so impressed that I subsequently engaged Michael’s services on the sale and purchase of my own house. Again, by his experience, he guided me to a property that with features that I would not have considered on my own. Through his knowledge of the new location, he advised very well. Michael managed both transactions thoroughly.
In each situation – the Parish and my house – Michael has followed-up to help us settle in, and has maintained contact, always with a helpful and sincere intention. Indeed, we contact him with any new real estate matters that arise and he always provides helpful guidance. The Parish and I happily continue with Michael for our real estate needs. He quickly adapts to our needs and handles everything we ask.Professionally and personally, I strongly recommend Michael Plomaritis for real estate services. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this strong recommendation.
