Desirable Orchard Park. Minutes from UWO. This home has been extensively renovated by the current owners. Approximately $237,000 has been spent through the past year on updates and renovations. Some updates include driveway, roof shingles, eavesthroughs, soffits, fascia, windows, new kitchen, new appliances, updated bathrooms, flooring, paint, trim, doors, and much more. Complete list of improvements available upon request. The upper level has four bedrooms and features a Master with ensuite.

Lower level offers a large finished recroom and updated laundry. A great opportunity to purchase a home in mint condition in this mature much-sought-after neighbourhood.
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.

Joyce, I appreciate all your updates.
Despite the work, selling the condo has been a very rewarding experience. The making money part is also great of course; our timing was good and your expertise and knowledge of the market was invaluable.
We couldn’t have done it without you. I really appreciate your organizational abilities and all the support you provided.

When we wanted to move to London from Brampton as part of a job transfer, we were referred to Joyce Bryne by our friend.
We wanted the best qualities in our agent especially integrity, experience and a good reputation which is what we received with using Joyce.
Joyce has a deep insight into the current market and all the little details of the real estate business plus offered guidance at every step.

I have just had the pleasure of working with Joyce Byrne’s real estate team to help sell my home in London. All the members of her team worked very hard to stage, inspect and show my home to its fullest potential. Joyce was always available to answer any and all questions, and kept me fully informed about the progress of the showings and subsequent sale.
I am thankful that I was directed to Joyce to begin this whole process, with a good result.
I wish you continued success in the future.
We appreciate all the help you have given us since we first met with you. We liked that you did not push us to buy any house but patently showed us many [different] houses. When we had questions, you were quick to reply whether or not you had the answer. We also appreciate that you don’t leave us in the blank once we had purchased our house but still communicate occasionally. Overall we are VERY HAPPY with your service!!
