This was our fourth time working with Ivor - and it was a particularly challenging April 2018 Market. Nevertheless, Ivor's experience, professionalism and attention to detail really shone through. In particular, we were very pleased with the photographer that Ivor recommended to us for this listing. We were hoping for a quick sale in a quickly tanking market - not something your everyday realtor can manage. We followed Ivor's advice from preparation to pricing and ended up selling our home with just 1 day on the market, with multiple offers that Ivor very skilfully navigated and advised us through, and for a price we were very happy with.

We both want to say we are so very grateful to Ivor for his amazing help firstly, in the sale of our house and purchase of our first condo, and then 4 years later in the sale of that condo and purchase of our new condo in Milton. His tremendous patience and personal interest in making sure our every need was met, took all the stress out of the experience of moving. He was always ready to answer our questions and offer us advice with our many queries! We would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their house or in the process of buying a new one! Thanks Ivor!

Buying an apartment especially when the prices were shooting up was really difficult Not only did Ivor Mendes patiently take me around to several apartments, but he chose those that suited our needs. Ivor Mendes was never daunted by our indecision, as he had to keep consulting with my husband through the process who was in another country. He has a very professional approach and a calm disposition with a light wit that made the task fun. Thus the whole process seemed easy and less stressful. He persevered and kept us focused to help us make our final decision. He even managed all the formalities and referred us to the right people that could take care of the procedures as we were not permanently living in Canada at that time. We are now owners of a beautiful apartment thanks to Ivor. Thank you for all the hand holding through this process and I wish you continued success!

My wife and I were looking for our first home last year in Keswick. Ivor lead us through this process and went above and beyond all of our expectations. The area was new to all of us and Ivor took it upon himself to learn about the area, amenities, and points of interest for us. He was always available for any questions and concerns we had. His knowledge and contacts made buying our first home as easy as it could be. He coached us through the documentation, home inspection and mortgage processes. We never felt rushed. He spent his own money to make sure the houses we were interested in had legal permits for extensions and got us out of a sticky situation with foundation problems on a house we did not end up buying. In hindsight, if we had bought that house, we would be dealing with a lot more trouble than it was worth. He was always in a great mood, and even drove us to different parks and fishing points.

As a young professional and a new home buyer, trying to figure out the housing market was made all the easier thanks to Ivor. Especially in a market like Toronto, the real estate market can be confusing and your dream home can be gone in a matter of days. Having a good relator is important to ensure that you get what you want. Ivor knew my budget and housing expectations, and was able to find me a great home in an ideal location. What impressed me the most is that even though I lost out on a few homes due to over bidding, Ivor never stopped. I will be using Ivor as my realtor for my next home purchase.

Today, I own a little piece of my new home in Canada through Ivor's hard work, patience, knowledge of the business, and most of all, compassion. No question was too silly to ask; no time was too inconvenient to commit to; while he kept focussed on delivering his promise of doing his best to find me my home within the very tight timeframe. When one has limited resources, time and experience in buying a home, it makes good sense to work with a trusted professional like Ivor to help you through the whole process. Ivor, was there with me every step of the way!

If not for Ivor, I would be in a rented place today and Christmas would not have felt so special. Thank you, Ivor.

Buying our new home with Ivor was a completely pleasurable and hassle-free experience. He was attentive and proactive .He showed his wealth of knowledge in real estate to help us pick our first home.

He also abides by a great code of conduct, was honest in his assertions, provided us with accurate information and above all never pressured us into a deal. We had sufficient time to consider our options and make an informed decision.

We felt like a friend was helping us rather than just a real estate agent. We would highly recommend working with him.

I have had the privilege of knowing Ivor for the past 6 years or so, both as a friend and as my client. At the very outset of Ivor’s new career as a Realtor in 2001, I have been very impressed with his business ethics, integrity and professionalism. Ivor’s follow-up with his clients for any real-estate, or other matters, is most impressive and commendable. I am positive that having dealt with Ivor, all his clients would consider him an asset and would refer him to others without hesitation. I wish him the very best in his career.

Please accept our sincere appreciation of a very solid and personalized effort put forth in the purchase and sale of our home in Brampton.It was only due to your consistent hard work and follow-up that the new home came to us at a price the vendor had never intended to sell, inclusive of add-on’s that were reflective not only of good negotiation skills but your sincerity in getting us the best possible deal. Thereafter, you came through with the sale of our house within the short closing period we had, and under adverse market conditions. It was a huge relief to see the ‘Sold’ sign on our front lawn while similar houses in the neighbourhood were contemplating other measures under the pressure.To say the least, we are now enjoying the fruit of your labour. We would be more than happy to recommend you to other prospective home buyers or sellers in the future and wish you the very best of luck and success.

Knowing Ivor as a friend made us choose him to be our Real Estate agent. Then came the "getting to know him as an agent" part. He proved what he first told us – that he would be with us not only through the process of buying a home but afterwards too. Ivor was informative and prompt; always available and helpful, but never pushy. He smoothened our way throughout and his continuous guidance helped us sail through the deal. We share with everyone our experience with Ivor as a dedicated and dependable man of principles.

Both Ingrid & I would like to thank you for your dedicated, committed & sincere approach in helping us find our Dream Home… Your honest feedback & opinions made us feel comfortable with the realities of owning a home for which today we are very grateful. It was during our search that you suffered your heart attack, & in a lighter vein hopefully it was not because of us, with all our millions of silly questions which you always told us that “No question is Silly”. Even during your recovery period we were amazed with Janice taking the time off to drive with you all the way from Brampton to Ajax to view homes & we really appreciated Janice’s honesty. Needless to say we will always recommend you to anyone we come across looking to buy a home.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Ivor with the purchase of my very first home. I was very unsure of what I was looking for as well as where I should look. I was dealing with another real estate agent in the beginning but found that person a little too pushy. After some time and deliberation I met Ivor and right away knew that I found the missing piece to my unsolved puzzle. Ivor was right there when I needed him as we searched numerous houses with not alot of time on our hands. I found Ivor to be honest, sincere and extremely easy to talk to. I could approach him with any questions I had and I found him to be very knowledgeable. He made me feel very comfortable and listened to my requests as well as offered the best possible advice I needed to hear without being pushy. I felt as though I could talk to him on a "friend" level rather than just a "real estate agent" level. After the purchase of my home he continued to be there for me offering his advice with the many questions I had and always returned my calls promptly. I would highly recommend Ivor to anyone who is considering buying/selling a home as I know I would happily deal with him again in the future, not to mention gaining a great friend.

Working with Ivor was truly a stress-free experience. During a short period of time, we completed a sale and purchase with Ivor, and closed both deals on the same day! We found Ivor to be highly professional and easy to work with. He made every effort to accommodate our unique needs - whether that meant working around our personal schedules, bringing along our 2- and 6-year old boys on daily home viewings, or addressing numerous questions/concerns along the way.

Ivor was literally with us until the last box had been moved into our new home, and the move was officially over! For that, we are truly grateful.

Buying a new home is one of the most stressful things you can do in life, even more so when it's your first home. We were referred to Ivor by a family member that had used him with their home purchase and he made our home buying experience less stressful. It was our first home and we really didn't know what to expect and Ivor walked us through everything we needed to know. After looking around at many houses we found the house we loved and its because he listens to what his clients are looking for and pays attention to his clients while they are looking at homes to see exactly what they want or don't want in their future home. Many nights, weekends, and weeks later he helped us find the perfect home for us! Ivor is very knowledgeable, personable and we really enjoyed working with him. He has become a friend, not just our agent- Thank You Ivor!

Let me take this opportunity to commend Ivor Mendes, our realtor, for conducting himself with utmost professionalism in helping us find a home. Being newcomers to Canada, purchasing a home seemed like a daunting task. However, on our first meeting he assured us that he “would hold our hands through the whole process” and was true to his word.

What impressed us the most is that Ivor was very knowledgeable, calm and patient, and very resourceful. He went through so much trouble answering all our questions and made sure we understood the process. Ivor was very patient and respectful of our needs through all the listings he found us; and those we lost because of higher offers. And, whenever we felt like the going was tough; he lightened it with his great sense of humour!!

Finally, my kudos to Ivor, because unlike some realtors, after the deal was done, he did not just pack up and leave. He made sure we settled in alright and through this whole process, we gained a friend!!

In short, regardless of whether you are buying or selling a home, I would highly recommend Ivor to you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process and who always kept his clients’ interests and needs at the forefront. All the best Ivor and I wish you continual success!
