Outstanding value in Old North! This brick beauty is fresh, fabulous, and affordable. A modern kitchen with stainless appliances and bright breakfast area overlooks the deep, fully fenced, treed yard with its private stamped concrete patio. Updates abound with oak floors and newer carpeting, updated Golden windows, energy efficient gas-fired hot water heat, dual zone energy star A/C mini systems, newer shingles, wiring, and plumbing. The main floor is truly versatile with its modern powder room, spacious living areas and formal dining room with leaded glass pocket doors (could also be a fantastic main floor bedroom!). Upstairs, 2 more bedrooms and a large main bath with shower and soaker tub provide creature comforts. Lots of storage in the dry basement too! No work here; move right in and enjoy one of the best neighbourhoods London has to offer.
In our past experiences of working with various real estate agents we have been consistently disappointed with what appeared to be a lack of care and attention to detail that you would expect from somebody handling such a large transaction on your behalf. When buying with others, we felt that we were doing most of the legwork and when selling a property it felt like there was little guidance behind the pricing that was set and no selling strategy whatsoever. As a result, we had never used the same individual more than once as we continued to search for the right partner with each new real estate transaction.
We knew that we had found a different kind of team from the first time the Becketts stepped into the home we were planning on selling. Opening every drawer, looking at every aspect of the house, taking pictures and making notes…it was clear they were prepared to do their homework. After the initial viewing of the home we met for several hours reviewing the incredible amount of data they have available to them to set an appropriate selling price based on historical figures, the inventory currently being offered in the market, and the optimal price range for our target customer. There was no doubt about the reasonable selling range we could expect based on all of the information made available to us. We determined a price that was above our initial estimate and received multiple offers which allowed us to sell above our asking price along with tactical guidance from Team Beckett on how to handle each offer. We have no doubt that based on the initial feedback of other real estate agents we had talked to that we would have left at least $50,000 (12%) on the table had we not proceeded with the Becketts.
Team Beckett also took care to walk us through all potential safety, legal and procedural matters so that we had full confidence that we wouldn’t be met with any surprises. They even returned a small portion of the commission that was not spent on the anticipated marketing costs which resulted in them being one of the most competitive agents we have worked with!
We will no longer use anybody else and will insist that those we care about call Team Beckett before listing or looking for a home in Oxford County.

Just a quick note to say thank you for the excellent service provided to my niece Roxanne in the listing and selling of her home in London.
You and your team made the whole process very understandable for people who have not dealt in real estate matters in quite some time.
Your advice was very well founded and obviously spot on which lead to a quick and very acceptable finish.
Once again Joyce thank you and I look forward to sending you another referral as soon as I can.
Despite my focuses and desires for a home changing several times during my time working with them, they were always more than helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
They always told me what I needed to hear as opposed to what they thought I wanted to hear; which I really appreciated as a first time home buyer. They were so attentive and spent countless hours getting me into a home I am absolutely thrilled with.
“Joyce’s Team was extremely knowledgeable about homes and neighbourhoods and knew what to look for. They were patient and kept trying to find me just the right property which took 3 years.
The team was available, flexible and had wonderful knowledge of the state of homes and what repairs might be needed. They even provided me with a no cost home inspection to be sure it was the home they thought it was!”
I would recommend anyone selling their property to take advantage of the customer service provided by Joyce Byrne and her team.
Living in one city and selling property in another city is rather unique in that we were not there to oversee the showings and the sale of the property. Joyce, you and your team kept us informed of the progress from the initial listing to follow ups after the closing.
Whenever I emailed or phones you, your response was prompt.
Your website is extremely helpful. It made selling easy.
