The action

Agent JoAnne Gludish adjusted tactics in selling this one-bedroom plus den suite late this March, adopting social distancing protocols and producing a virtual tour. And she was curt with buyer’s agents looking to pounce on a potential COVID-19 discount.

“Some of the appointments I just refused because those buyers were just looking for bargains at this time. Like one agent said with COVID, they were hoping to pick up some stuff as an investment,” said Ms. Gludish.

“We had several offers on it, but [the seller] was adamant about the price.”

What they got

This condo is in a multi-tower complex close to Humber Bay Park called Westlake Encore.

The unit faces southwest and has nine-foot ceilings, full height windows and a balcony accessible from both the bedroom and the open living and dining area.

The kitchen is outfitted with quartz counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

The unit comes with ensuite laundry, a storage locker and a parking space. Monthly fees of $432 pay for water and heating, concierge and recreational amenities.

The agent’s take

“It’s a very big building, so units do come up with regularity, but not with that view,” Ms. Gludish said.

“It has full water views and it will never be obstructed.”

This unit is also an elevator ride away from a squash court, a pool, a supermarket and a liquor store. “That building has outstanding amenities,” Ms. Gludish said. “It blew me away.

“Everything is right there; you don’t have to go anywhere or do anything, it’s so convenient.”
