Buying property is a major decision, and it’s also where great investments start. I offer a full range of buying services that make the experience unforgettable. From buyers guides to introductions to the best mortgage team and law firms, I take care of my clients.
Blue Elephant is known in the industry for being modern marketing experts. When working with us you can expect nothing but the best… from home staging to massive advertising reach, we constantly exceed expectations and out perform our peers.
Year after year I help clients build wealth through the purchase and management of real estate. Whether it’s a condo in Toronto or a duplex in Durham, I work with my clients to create an investment plan that works best for them and leads to long term wealth creation.
It has been a long and winding road. From mechanical engineering in BC (where I had my finger broken in a logging riot) through to a journalism degree in Ontario; which led me into the wild world of the internet and the chaos of the dot com boom and bust (like giving away a Humvee in LA). I got fed up with all of it right about the time my wife’s real estate business was taking off. I loved the freedom and variety being a Realtor offered, so I jumped at the chance to join her.
It became an even better idea once children came along, as it allowed me to spend more time with them, without the 9-5 grind. And that same freedom working in real estate allowed me to pursue other passions. Did you know that I was part-owner of an art gallery in Parkdale for 3 years? Or that I have sold my work through the AGO? I was even one of the stars of a short-lived TV show. I love my life, my family, my job… I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything!
I reside in a terrific house that I am proud to call my home. It not only suits my budget but my lifestyle. On Laurin's keen advice I viewed the property, I felt he really listened and had my needs in mind from the beginning. His expertise definitely assisted me in making the right purchase - from lifting rugs to look for flawed flooring, to checking for cracked windows, water damage, etc. The transaction was stress-free; what I thought would be a lot of work was made effortless due to Laurin's savvy. My home has even been appraised at about 20% more than what I paid less than a year ago!
Thanks again for the house shopping help - you rocked and we really appreciated all the extra attention!
Working with Laurin has been an extremely rewarding experience with lots of insight into the market we were looking at. With his help, my wife, children and myself can relax in our own home. There was a sense of urgency due to us expecting our second child and needing to be prepared before the birth. We had looked at many locations and with his persistence and patience were able to get the right house for the right price at the right time for us.
Brickwork is done and looks unbelievable. The whole place looks incredible right now - completely night/day from how it looked when we moved in. So happy here! Hope all is well with you.
Thanks Laurin. Hope to see you, sometime. We are loving Toronto and this neighborhood and this house. It's all good.
Thanks, Laurin, yes, everything went well. So far so good in the new place; the new paint already makes a huge difference! I hope you're doing well. Take care and thanks again for all your help.
Thank you for all of your advice, I am so excited and anxious to move in! Thanks.
Brilliant! Thank you so much for all your help!
So far moving madness is still pretty crazy, but I think I'm settling in OK. I really do love the space, I feel like I certainly made the right choice. I hope the rest of your winter goes well and perhaps sometime in the long future I will be contacting you to sell! Thanks for your help.
Thank you again for helping us through the mess while getting our place, we appreciate it more than you know.
We couldn't be happier in our place. And we really appreciate all your help. We've been working on the backyard and a bit on the front. Maybe we'll take on the basement some day...
Thank you again for all your help! I think it was a bit more difficult than either of us had expected, but thankfully everything worked out. We are very excited!
Thanks to you for making this such a smooth and easy experience. If I'm ever in the market again or I know anyone looking, I would be happy to pass along your name.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and energy in finding us a house we love. Thanks also for all your help around the roofing issue - You were a calm force in moments of fear. Wishing you the very best. It's been a pleasure working with you.
I love my house and my neighbourhood. I'm plugged into the neighbourhood and attended our local resident's association meeting. I love walking to St. Lawrence market along the Esplanade (a great blvd, who knew!?). I love the underpass park and look forward to the opening of the Don River park. And I can walk to my exhibit at the Brickworks -- all good. Best of all the new job is work from home. I've completely deleted my commute.
Loving the new place, still settling in. Slowly buying furniture... I didn't realize how big of a cost THAT would be!! Have the essentials now, just looking for a couch now. I'm really enjoying living downtown. I'm lucky to be working at clients in the downtown core.
The move went fine and everything is fantastic! The flat is a perfect space for me... things are excellent. Thanks so much for your help.
Thanks so much Laurin!! Everything went well and now we are demolishing all the uglyness out of the place. You shall be invited to see it after the renos! A+
Thank you for all your help on making this happen.
Quite excited actually -- despite longtime off yet -- and still very happy with the decision. Think it's going to be a great area in a few year's time and quite like the upgrades option included in the package. Plus, I like the lower East side -- think a good area with big change going to happen.
Laurin, I really appreciate you have had to go above and beyond on this one. Everything is in order and my stress levels are now starting to drop! You really earned that drink from me!
Thank you for being so helpful and diligent.
I have retained Laurin Jeffrey on 3 separate occasions and in each instance, he has been a fantastic resource and a skillful realtor. I may have need of his services in the next while and would not hesitate to call or email him. He has been prompt in all his communications, and an excellent guide to the complexities of the Toronto real estate market. I recommend his services to anyone seeking to participate in the Toronto real estate market.
Working with Laurin has been a pleasure, almost effortless. Good subject knowledge, timely. He exudes a relaxed professionalism which adds to the experience. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for all the work you put into finding us a perfect first home... as soon as we take possession, we would love to have over you for dinner! Thanks again!
Been very happy with my purchase. The building is nice too, would recommend to any future clients.
Thank you very much... Your help in selling the house was greatly appreciated.
We are very happy. Let us know when you're going to be in the 'hood... and if you have time, we'll take you over to show you the condo!
The house is simply great. I had a fear that I would come to think I made a mistake, but frankly, it's pure gold... despite the relatively modest square-footage, it feels palatial. I'm very happy. Thanks for your help during all of this! Enjoy your summer.
To any potential sellers or purchasers. I have used the excellent services of Laurin Jeffrey, both to purchase real estate and to lease out my rental properties. He has not only been a fabulous real estate representative, but he goes way beyond the term "total service". I recommend Mr. Jeffrey with no hesitation of any kind.
Great news. Thank you for everything... Have a great summer and if you ever find yourself out west look me up!
Thanks a lot, you found me a fantastic unit at a price I wanted to pay so really thankful for that.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You have been very patient with me and I appreciated it very much.
