BUYING

We Know Real Estate

Would you take swimming lessons from someone who’s never jumped into the deep end? Neither would we.

Fox Marin has made plenty of waves in downtown Toronto’s buying market with hundreds of acquisitions under our belt. We are committed to bringing that knowledge and experience to the process of finding you a new home. That’s what you can expect when purchasing with Fox Marin.

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, a seasoned investor, or someone in between, our customized buying process ensures all your specific needs are met.

Everyone handles the buying process differently. And, we understand that. We pride ourselves on our flexibility in remaining an objective third party.

Fox Marin uses their hands-on experience to provide sound advice before, during, and after your purchase.

It’s a big city, but we’ll help you find your way.

We’ve travelled the world, but Toronto is the city where we work, live, and play — it’s the place we call “home.” Over the years, each of us has gained intimate, first-hand knowledge of downtown Toronto’s residential real estate market. We live here, we sell here and we acquire properties here. It’s our town…let’s go get it!

It’s this special relationship with the city that makes us so good at what we do — working with clients to purchase a new home or condominium is a personal relationship. We learn a lot about who you are, what you like (or, don’t like), what worries you and what moves you into action. And buying a property doesn’t happen overnight – so, we will likely get to know you and how you drink your coffee faster than you think!

Whether you’re a first-time condo buyer, a seasoned flipper, or somewhere in between, you can trust our team to guide you through the experience of buying property, while delivering unparalleled professionalism, integrity, service, and the right amount of personal TLC with every interaction.

Finding Your Dream Home

Acquiring A Home
Is A Process

At Fox Marin, we take the time to understand what your perfect home is. And then, we help you get there. Early in the buying process, we host a Buyer Intake Session, where we address a number of important considerations. We want to get you thinking about the home buying process in a more structured and holistic way.

Fox Marin takes the time to understand your individual level of experience with home buying and ownership.

In fact, the first thing we do is set up an introductory meeting to review your wish list, discuss market fundamentals and review the acquisition process so you’re set up for success from day one. It’s important to us that we do a lot of the heavy-lifting upfront so you’re empowered with knowledge and information from the get-go! For planning purposes, your onboarding session will be approximately 90 minutes in length and is definitely the best way to kick-off your search efforts!

Knowing that, buying with Fox Marin means we are investing time and energy in this critical first step. We believe that the more knowledgeable a homebuyer is, the more comfortable, stress-free (and, fun) the home buying process will be!

Our Thoughtful Approach

Five Key Principles

1. Planning is Paramount

We develop a customized buying strategy based on your requirements. And, we empower you with all the information to properly assess a property, its value and potential.

2. Open, Honest and Frequent Communication is Key

We’re in constant contact with you every step of the way. We keep you informed the moment we have relevant news and associated market data. The Toronto market moves quickly. That’s why having the most current figures helps you to make a confident decision. At the same time, we’re very honest with our assessments. If we think there’s a better property out there for you, we’ll let you know.

3. Our Network is Your Network

We’ve created a powerful network that includes connections with top agents across Toronto. We also have access to exclusive listings, assignments and other opportunities that you won’t find on MLS!

4. Our “All-In” Attitude Means We Play to Win

Your long-term interests supersede the transaction. We know we’re successful when we’ve made the right decision for you on your timelines. And, whether we’re attending open houses or negotiating on your behalf, we’re always working in your best interests in everything we do.

5. We’re in it for the Long Run

From the first meeting through to closing, and long after the final sale, you’ll always have access to Fox Marin Associates and our network of qualified partners (plus, we are known for our great closing gifts in case you’re curious).

Communication

Our Commitment To You

We’re in constant contact with you every step of the way, and keep you informed the moment we have relevant news and associated market data. The Toronto market moves quickly, and having the most current data helps you to make a confident decision. At the same time, we’re very honest with our assessments. If we think there’s a better investment out there for you, we’ll let you know.
