Your Dream Home:

The “Wow!” Factor

It’s an angelic winter’s day, snow falling gently across the valley. You’re sitting in the sunroom of your new home, set high on a hill overlooking the Ottawa River. Snuggled down into your favourite chair before the stone fireplace you had custom-built, you sip your tea and smile to yourself: “How did I get this lucky?”

The truth is, finding your dream home, whether a place in the country or a hip condo downtown, isn’t about luck. Finding the “Wow!” factor, that thing that makes you feel excited every time you walk through the front door of your home, takes hard work.

If you’re buying a new home, it’s important to understand what aspects of a house make it a “Wow!” home for you. Is it a gourmet kitchen? A backyard pool? A view of the park? A great school nearby? Or, a custom-built fireplace? Maybe, it’s just a feeling it gives you that says, “I am home”. Knowing what you want and how much you have to spend will give you focus as you search.

If your focus is on selling your home, it takes the same kind of in-depth understanding and hard work—just in a different direction, as you’ll see in “Selling A “WOW!” Home”. This page will show you why it, literally, pays to get the right agent working for you who has their finger on the pulse of the buyer.

Whether buying or selling your “WOW!” home, finding the right agent is probably the most important part of your quest.


Your Dream Home:

The “Melva” Factor

Looking for a place to simply hang your hat? Melva isn’t for you. But if you’re looking for someone who is just as excited about finding your dream home as you are, you need Melva!

If you’ve ever bought a home before, you may have run into an agent who is anxious to show you a few homes—and just as anxious for you to make up your mind. Melva knows that finding the home that says “Wow!” to you, requires great listening skills, knowledge of the industry, and time. It may take lots and lots of time.

With Melva on your side, whether your “Wow!” home is the first or the 100th home you look at, she will patiently go through the process with you. No matter how long it takes, Melva is determined to find your “Wow!” home.

Conversely, Melva understands that if you’re selling your home, you want to do it quickly and profitably. She’ll do that by helping you showcase your home’s “Wow!” factor. Speed, profit and you’ll likely wind up with a buyer who cherishes your home as much as you have.
