CO-OP AGENTS Ira Jelinek and Sarah Lever, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: Clients of Ira Jelinek and Sarah Lever had been losers in previous bidding wars for Riverdale's much-desired homes, but they prevailed in the battle for this semi-detached house with an offer of $151,000 over the $899,000 list price.

What They Got: Down the street from Riverdale Park East, this updated, 21/2-storey residence on a 16-by-88-foot lot has four bedrooms, with a fireplace and deck in the second- and third-floor bedrooms. The larger of two bathrooms has heated marble floors.

The living room has a gas fireplace. The kitchen is off a dining area, with an exit to the south-facing patio and laneway parking, plus a lower-level family room with a second walkout.

The Agent's Take: "The neighbourhood is what really appealed to them [because] it's very community-oriented and very friendly," agent Ira Jelinek says. "The house itself provided ample room.

"The main floor was basically all open concept, except for the U-shaped kitchen at the back of the house, so it didn't seem too small," Mr. Jelinek says.

"[In addition] it had a lot of decks to compensate for the size of the backyard."
