Real Estate has always been a passion for Art. After being a business owner for 30 years, Art has parlayed this experience into a successful real estate career. A lifelong resident of Montreal, Art is very familiar with most of Montreal’s neighborhoods. For example, he is equally comfortable working in Westmount, Ville Mont-Royal, Beaconsfield or Hudson. This comes in very handy for out of towners unfamiliar with the various districts of the city, as well as for investors looking for opportunities stretching from the downtown core all the way west to the Ontario border. Customer service is priority number one. Customer service is priority number one. Always happy to answer his phone, no call is too early or too late to be fielded. Integrity and honesty: these are the two words which mean the most to him, and the credo by which he leads his personal and professional life. Trust is paramount. In every transaction, the only thing that matters is that the customers are fully satisfied with the deal and leave with the confidence that their interests and concerns were listened to , understood, and fully addressed. Art specializes in luxury homes but is equally comfortable helping first-time home buyers navigate through their initial purchase, carefully explaining in detail every process along the way. Working with investors who build from scratch or fully renovate tired properties, Art has quite the eye for styles and design. Several homes he has sold were his design. From floor plans, paint colors, lighting fixtures to kitchens and bathrooms, many properties he’s sold have his personal touch and design. Market knowledge is paramount, especially when working with investors. Investors repeatedly use him for his detailed analysis of market conditions, and the firm grasp he has of their needs. This eye for design allows him to be a thoughtful stager, making recommendations on how to prepare your property so that it brings out the best your home has to offer when introducing it to the market. Conversely, his working with the construction of homes gives him a critical eye which he shares with his clients when they are purchasing a property. A skilled and thoughtful negotiator, when planning or receiving an offer, he strategizes his moves and anticipates what the other side is likely to respond with. This helps in optimizing the preferred outcome for his clients. At the end of the day, it’s all about relationships. Art’s greatest pleasure comes from knowing he has helped people transition from one stage of their lives to another. He follows up constantly with his clients, who feel confident to call him with questions weeks and months after a transaction has concluded. Ultimately, many clients become friends. His relaxing manner is what draws people towards him.
