I consulted Katrina McHugh to purchase a property and she made the process as painless as possible. We even had fun discussing various aspects. She was patient to go back with all of my questions and even helped with post-sale issues with the property. I have since recommended her to friends who have hired her as their selling agent and they have been very pleased. It is rumoured she can even take apart Ikea wardrobes and reassemble!
I met Katrina from a mutual friend who had also gone through a difficult divorce. Although it took a very long time for my Ex to finally settle and agree to sell our house to move on, Katrina was there for me. She provided a full package of expertise and emotional support. I felt in good hands. It was important that she acted fairly with both sides. My Ex would have been less co operatve otherwise. She would come to the house to meet us at different times.. She provided honest assessments of the property value, what decluttering had to be done and how to stage the house to its best appeal. But the process with my Ex took what seemed to take forever. There were many ups and down over the 18 months or so it took to reach an agreement. At each court hearing, mediation and family intervention, Katrina encouraged me to stay strong. Our interests were truly in her heart, not just a quick house sale. Katrina truly provide a full package of service. She was critical in lining me up with a wonderful new rental property, working with the other agents to give me an advantage. I am now happily settled in my new place, in my new life and thank Katrina for all her help. I would truly recommend her to all, especially those going through separation and divorce.
It was really a wonderful experience working with Katrina to find our investment property. She always delivered more than what we expected and was so great to work with. Not only did we find the investment property we were looking for within weeks, but we learned so much about purchasing investment properties in the process! Katrina, was not only our real estate agent, but while looking for a house, we felt that she was a strategic partner. She is extremely knowledgeable about Toronto’s downtown market and understands how to assess a property’s value and investment potential. On many occasions she even came prepared with the numerical cash flow analysis, even before we saw the property! Katrina’s style of work was very focused. Instead of automatically sending us every listing that appeared on the market, she listened to the things that were important to us and then focused on going after them. She was always scanning for new opportunities, and sent directly to us only those listings that met our list of criteria. This saved us a great deal of time and kept us focused on our goals. Katrina was extremely honest and reliable. It was clear that she would rather be open with us about a property’s drawbacks, than push to make a sale with the risk of her clients being unhappy. We grew to trust her judgment and rely heavily on her expertise. She was definitely not only our agent, but a strategic partner in accomplishing our property goals!
I have known Katrina for over 30 years and can attest to her fantastic people skills. One can tell immediately that she loves what she does as she does it with ease, and confidence, and charm. She has bought and sold 2 houses with me and in each situation I felt completely safe. I knew I was in the right hands. Buying or selling a house can be a very stressful experience, yet her competence, skill, and vision, made the job seem effortless and even fun! Katrina has a keen eye for staging and went beyond the call of duty choosing colours and painting the front of my home to help the sale. She is thorough and takes the time to listen and explain the intricacies of the trade. I have recommended her many times in the past and will continue to do so in the future. There's no one I'd rather work with!
Katrina McHugh — an agent with honour and deep care for her clients! Our house was on the market with another agent for the spring and summer. There was so little traffic, even though it was high season, then we called Katrina. She came in with smiles, fresh enthusiasm and her camera. She did an instant shoot, organizing and setting up rooms as she went. She has a fabulous eye for detail, a genuine appreciation of home and giving a solid marketing package her utmost attention. She researched and familiarized herself with our potential market, advertised in both Toronto and out of city papers and sold our house. We felt loved, our home felt loved and many appointments came quickly. Even though we signed on with her in the fall, and our large century home was in the country, Ms Katrina McHugh sold our house with great confidence in good time. As the sale was on it’s way, she also helped us find our new home. Her attention to detail is impeccable, she took care of all the loose ends, making us feel comfortable and secure in her capable hands. Always generous, honest, genuine and ready with a smile, she is a joy to work with. We love her and recommend her highly!
