What Sets Us Apart
We know how expensive moving can be, so we purchased a 16 foot moving truck to make sure our clients always have a leg up on moving day. Plus once you’re a Walsh and Volk client you always have free access to use the truck. It’s that easy! Full details on the truck here.
We’ve got a certified home stager just raring to go to make your home look it’s best. But relax, we come in and do all the work for you, you don’t have to worry about a thing. We even have an inventory of furnishings like tables, chairs, lamps, couches, pillows, pictures, beds, plants, clocks and more to help give your home that finishing touch buyers are looking for. Take a look at our staging examples.
The proof of quality service is in repeat business and referrals. RE/MAX Sales Associates average 70% of their business from repeats and referrals, while other agents average about 30 percent from those sources. We beat the average with over 75% of our business being repeat and client referrals. (Source: RE/MAX Ontario-Atlantic Canada Inc.) See what people are saying about us.
We have 3 types of insurance, more then any of our competitors, so when you’re with the Walsh and Volk Team you’re covered. Home Closing Insurance protects you if your deal is delayed or cancelled. Then Liability Insurance covers you if anyone falls or is hurt during an open house or property showing at your home, or if you are hurt during a home viewing. Finally Home Systems Breakdown Insurance protects you for 1 year against breakdowns of Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing etc and appliances. Full details on our insurance here.
