Listing with Derek and Dan made selling my investment simple. Before we listed, they encouraged me to provide supporting documentation that strengthen the listing, and they created a profit and loss statement that helped potential buyers understand the value in my investment property. I was shocked when it was sold after being on the market for only 5 days. Derek and his team’s expertise made it easy for me to trust their judgment about holding off offers, and we even ended up with competition and over asking! Having a team of REALTORS with different skill sets and a behind-the-scenes team making sure everything ran smoothly added a lot of value. I’m glad I trusted Derek to represent me.

Derek and his amazing team assisted us in the selling and buying of our home. We are so happy we went with them! Derek is a go getter and he works hard to get you what you want. He generated so much interest in our home by fully utilizing social media and providing high-quality images and video. We sold for $40,000 over asking the first day we accepted offers. But he also managed to get us our new home for the asking price with conditions! Derek and his team are attentive and make things easy for you. I’d highly recommend them to everyone!

We are extremely happy with our realtor, Derek Doyle, and his team at Ambitious Realty. The service was very professional. There was always someone available to answer questions and the process from start to sold was made very quick and easy. Communication was open and consistent through the entire process. It can be scary selling your home, and so the Ambitious team made us feel confident and very comfortable throughout the process. We would highly recommend Derek to our friends and family when buying/selling a home.

We would like to take this time to thank you for taking us on as clients with the purchase of our new condo and the selling of our home. We realized right from the start that this was going to be a great partnership. Your attention to detail, knowledge of market, and professionalism spoke loud and clear within the first few minutes of meeting with you. Your innovative ideas for marketing our home were very impressive and, in our eyes, separate you from the pack. We are extremely happy with the outcome of our transactions and would highly recommend your services.

We want to thank Derek for all he has done for Lori and I. While selling and buying a house can be stressful, Derek was able to, through his calm demeanour and professional approach, put our minds at ease and alleviate a lot of pressure. His commitment to detail and addressing our needs was nothing short of excellent. Derek ensured our needs were first and helped achieve our goals. Derek was diligent in both the selling and buying process, all along making sure we were satisfied and happy. Derek’s response time to everything we needed was quick and accurate which allowed for the success in our transactions. If we do this again, Derek will certainly be our person to look after us!
