In Ontario’s real estate market, staying one step ahead is crucial, especially with recent legislative changes making exclusive listings—homes not advertised on the public market—more private than ever. But accessing these hidden gems just got easier for our clients, thanks to our partnership with Knokd.

Exclusive listings offer a unique advantage: they benefit sellers seeking privacy and buyers eager for less competition and early access to unique properties. With Ontario’s new legislation tightening rules around advertising these properties, they’ve become even more elusive. That’s where Knokd comes in.

Knokd is our secret weapon. This program allows us to share with you listings that are coming soon or are exclusively available, ensuring you’re first in line for properties that perfectly match your criteria—properties you won’t find on MLS or online platforms.

With our expertise and exclusive access through Knokd, we’re not just finding you a home; we’re uncovering opportunities that others don’t even know exist. Ready to step ahead in Ontario’s competitive real estate market? Get in contact today!

There is no status quo right now in any industry. In real estate, we are pivoting and providing lots of unique options to our Ottawa selling clients. In this case, our clients chose our exclusive option. This allowed us to actively market the property but not have it on the MLS. The seller only wanted very qualified buyers coming through the house. We were able to control that better with our exclusive option. At the time of listing, there were also two end units available on their street (Barrick Hill). Both were the same floor plan. We wanted to wait until they cleared MLS to list ours. We had a very throughout listing strategy.

Through our marketing efforts, we found a buyer who wanted to see it. That buyers agent had them view the 3d tour we had online. The buyer was able to comfortably walk through the home from the comfort of their own. When they came through for their in-person viewing they already knew it was the right house for them. We got a full price offer the next day. Our offer was significantly higher than the other two eventual sales on the street (average of 18k higher). We sold off-market for top dollar with very little hassle. Who you work with on the sale of your home matters!

If you are thinking about selling your Ottawa home, please feel free to contact us. We would love a chance to talk to you about our enhanced marketing services.

Absolutely outstanding service! I was reluctant to trust realtors again after having a terrible experience on the sale of my first home with another agent. Chris and the team really went above and beyond on both the selling and buying side. I can not recommend them enough!” – Seller of Barrick Hill
