I had the pleasure to work with Jeff on buying our first home. Jeff was always very professional, yet casual and friendly, establishing an environment of trust. He was also extremely knowledgable about the current market, provided an evaluation report for the sales in the neighborhood and had a good attention to the detail, pointing out the little things you could easily miss when the excitement prevails.
Jeff was always punctual, has excellent communication and negotiation skills, which makes him invaluable during this sometimes cumbersome process of finding your first home.
With Jeff's help, we bought a place we both liked and I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their place.

Jeff was an absolute delight to work with every step of the way. He was able to guide us through the selling and buying process with ease and confidence.
Jeff created and expedited the perfect plan to sell our house which achieved results that were above and beyond my initial expectations. This was our third time in the real estate investment game, but the first time with Jeff as our agent.
With Jeff, there is limited downside risk, and the odds are always stacked in your favour.
Paul & Kelly Filippelli
It is with great pleasure and confidence that I submit this testimonial and recommendation for Jeff Johnston.
Suzanne and I have our primary residence in Montreal, so when it came time to sell our secondary residence in Toronto we were completely dependent on Jeff’s market knowledge and professionalism. I had been concerned that dealing with a transaction of this importance from Montreal would be stressful; I was confidently reassured that Jeff was competently advocating on our behalf, and he effectively communicated all important information, without bogging us down with trivial details. In short, Jeff really seemed to take the time understand our INDIVIDUAL needs and structured his service accordingly.
Based on our experience, Suzanne and I are pleased to give our endorsement to Jeff and the personal and professional service he provides.
Top level service. Jeff was the best agent that I have dealt with in my considerable number of transactions.
We would like to thank you for all your help in selling our place, and also buying our new home.
When we first decided to meet with you, it was based on your reputation as a successful real estate agent in the Toronto area.
After signing with you, we found you to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, curteous and accommodating. You were able to answer all of our questions and provide great feedback and referrals when needed (i.e. stager/lawyer). Your marketing approach to selling (including photography, portfolio, mass distribution, etc.) also enabled us to get multiple offers within the first week of listing.
Overall this process couldn't have gone smoother and we enjoyed working with you from start to finish. We would highly recommend you to all our friends and family.

We had been thinking of downsizing from our house to a condo for a couple of years but weren’t comfortable with the realtors we talked to. Then we had a recommendation to call Jeff Johnston. Jeff replied promptly, we met and liked his manner, his advice and professionalism.
Things moved very quickly as he organised a stager, a painter, took his own professional quality photographs and video, compiled the listing brochure, and basically took all of the stress out of this upheaval. He even lent us his signs for our garage sales. His marketing prowess resulted in a steady procession of viewings commencing on the day of listing and the house was sold above asking in four days.
Jeff also helped us find a great condo apartment in our preferred area, showing us a number of apartments along the way. He was always punctual, always accessible, and kept us up-to-date on how things were progressing.
We always recommend him to friends and others when the subject of real estate comes up.
Chris & Jeannie
Thank you for a superb real estate experience in selling our home. Your advice to "stage" the home and your professional photography resulted in multiple offers well above asking price.
Listed Thursday a.m., we accepted an offer the next afternoon for 115% of listing price!! Your excellent marketing program and attention to detail resulted in a very successful sale.
Thank you sincerely,
Len & Helka Tokey
Jeff was an invaluable partner in the process of selling our North Toronto home. His advice helped us navigate a complex time in the market and resulted in us achieving multiple offers after only 4 days, with a sale price significantly over our expectations.
His marketing talent and staging team made our home a true showpiece (neighbours reported line-ups outside the open house) and his support made the process seamless and efficient.
I would absolutely work with Jeff on the sale of our next home.
Kerry & Andrew Sneyd
Thank you for not only selling our house in four days but for also getting us "OVER ASKING". Your tips in staging went a long way.
I don't believe we would have been so lucky in getting our new house if it wasn't for your expertise in negotiating. We were up against another buyer and you managed to get us our new house for under asking. Bravo!
We will definitely be using your services again in the future.
Judy and Matt Fortune
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the services that Jeff Johnston provided. I trusted his advice immediately and he was always right. I felt comfortable with the service and the transaction. Jeff went over and beyond the expectations I had for this process.
I would recommend his services for his extreme professionalism, his pleasant demeanor and his great knowledge and experience.
Jeff got our condo sold in record time. He spent the preparation time necessary to complete all the staging and "tour" pictures/brochures. It looked amazing!
Jeff made sure he communicated very regularly with all updates and comments from agents/tours and open houses.
In all, it was a good experience and I would recommend him to others interested in selling their condos in a professional and expeditious manner.
Prior to experiencing our first foray into the housing market, Jeff had already inspired confidence in his abilities as our agent by providing key insights for us regarding the selling of my condo. Jeff had been monitoring my region's supply/demand and emailed me to let me know inventory supply for my condo was the lowest it had been since we had first begun contemplating selling six month's previously. As promised, Jeff had kept his eye on our key market and much was going on in terms of rapid development all around us. He helped us sell it within 2 weeks with an impressive volume of interested buyers marching through to review the property. The sale was extremely timely and the final sale (after some clever negotiating, where Jeff was as good at listening to our needs and demands as he was suggesting ideas without being pushy) we ultimately got very near the ask price in a very challenging market.
Subsequent to that, we met for doing a search for our first home. Jeff's knowledge and experience helps inform his dealings with clients and allows him to help keep things in perspective and in context. Among the most important things, Jeff is always accessible by phone, text or email and that is incredibly valuable. He is prepared to handle all levels of inquiry and he demonstrates great patience in the process as first-time home buyers tend to have a lot of questions. In the end, he wants the client to be happy with the biggest purchase most will ever make. By constantly arranging site visits and adjusting our search according to our growing knowledge, Jeff ultimately helped us find exactly what we wanted in a neighborhood we had made our top priority. One Saturday he got us into see 7 or 8 different properties, all relatively contiguous to each other so it was efficient with our time as well.
We heartily recommend Jeff to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or condominium in a timely manner and for maximum value. At the end of it all, it was a fun and educational experience. Thanks Jeff!
Halcyon and Burke
My husband and I have used Jeff as our agent on the purchase and sale of our home. We have been so pleased with his services that we have recommended him with confidence to family and friends.
He was able to sell our house within a week and had valuable resources to make for easy, stress free transactions. I would not hesitate to utilize his services again.
Heather & Joe Buttaro
Your services as our representative & as an old friend we're first class. You exceeded our expectations on all levels.
I will not hesitate in offering your name as reference to my network of friends looking to buy or sell.
Jeff was outstanding when helping my husband and I in buying our first home. We had no clue what to do or what questions to ask and Jeff went to meetings with us and really truly advocated for us and made sure we were being treated fairly. It can be an issue sometimes with our younger age and he made sure we were never taken advantage of.
We experienced superior and quality service from Jeff. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone in the future if you are planning to buy or sell your home. I won't be using anyone else in the future either.
Thanks Jeff for everything! It's hard to find people like you in the business!
I contacted Jeff after seeing one of his listings - he was quick to reply and suggested multiple other units that fit the bill. His response time was impressive and his customer service exceptional. Jeff truly went the extra mile and left a lasting impression - with added touches like a magazine subscription and Starbucks.
After living in a Townhouse complex for over 4 years, I decided to sell and buy a house in Oakville. Jeff was instrumental in both the selling of my townhouse and in finding me the perfect house.
Through every aspect of the sale and purchase, Jeff remained a true professional and it showed through in everything he did. He produced a stunning array of photographs beautifully displayed in his brochures and on the web, he accurately determined market values on both properties and his personable approach when dealing with potential buyers and agents went a long way. Most of all, he kept me informed, educated and CALM throughout the entire process.
While I personally find the process of buying and selling to be mentally exhausting, it remains a wonderful experience due to Jeff's expert advice in making the right decisions.
Thank you again Jeff! I've already passed along your name to interested family and friends.
We would recommend Jeff to anyone we know. He worked tirelessly, was a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. Best of all, he helped us find our dream home and sell our house for more than we were expecting.
Thanks again, Jeff!
Andy and Melissa Pritchard
Jeff helped us both sell our existing home in Milton and buy a new home in Oakville. We had expected the sale to be challenging because of the location and unique nature of the house; however with Jeff's help the property sold quickly and at a good price. In buying our new home,
Jeff's negotiation skills helped us secure the purchase of a wonderful new property at well below the asking price.
Ian & Helen Stephenson
Jeff was extremely professional, responsive and assisted us even after we closed the transaction. Would recommend Jeff any day of the week!
We stumbled across Jeff's name by pure coincidence - and I couldn't be happier that we did. As renters, a strong-suited, professional real estate agent can often be harder to find than the property.
Jeff went above and beyond in helping us find the right place, settle in, and ensure we were in good hands. When the time comes to buy, he'll without a doubt be my first call.
I thought I was so lucky, sitting on my couch in Cairo-Egypt worried as to how I could find a broker to sell my lovely place in Toronto. I started searching on the web for brokers, my choice was on Jeff. I picked up the phone, got an immediate answer and from there on a journey that one can only say was nothing less than "Most Efficient & Pleasant".
Within the week I flew to Toronto, signed the contract. I thought it would take 4-6 months given the slightly higher price I had set than the market, yet in just 6 weeks I had Jeff come back with numerous offers and deal was concluded. In 6 weeks, from signing contractual documents to a final sale, with a very organized process and very pleasant flow of calls between Cairo and Toronto, and at the end Jeff even gave me a lovely gift. Now that is the impeccable service I am thankful for.
You helped us by selling our house and finding the right home for us. Working with you was a pleasure. You are a true professional. I will not hesitate to contact you for all my Real Estate needs or refer your name to anybody else.
Manoj & Monika
We will definitely be using him again for our next investment property!

Jeff was always very prompt in returning my emails, texts and phone calls. He was very thorough and paid close attention to detail. He was also very friendly and welcoming. This was my first time buying a home and I felt very at ease with the experience.
