We’ve bought a house in Stratford, Ontario

We are pleased to add that we have bought an early-1900s house in Stratford, Ontario. It’s been a long process with extensive research and it has turned out well. We owe special thanks to Nona Patterson, Broker, of Home and Company Real Estate in Stratford.
We found in our experience as sellers that the competition for houses, among people seeking to buy houses in Toronto (in particular in Long Branch, where we had lived for 21 years) was very fierce. In selling our house we worked in close collaboration with Angela, Paul, and Laura Giroudy, Sales Representatives, Royal LePage Real Estate at Bloor St. West and Royal York in Toronto.
The competition for houses, at a price range and with features that appeal to buyers from Toronto (by way of example), was slightly less fierce in Stratford but competitive nonetheless. We received some great advice from (among other sources) Nona Patterson: “When you see the house you want, act quickly.”
There is much to be said for doing your homework:
