LISTING AGENT Lena Preje, Re/Max Ultimate Realty Inc.
The Action: This spring agent Lena Preje took just days to sell an original, three-level side-split residence in Willowdale. A neighbour on the same street took notice and recruited the agent to sell this detached bungalow, which had more than a dozen showings and two competing offers.
What They Got: After the Second World War, the government sold over a dozen parcels of land on a quiet cul-de-sac to its military men, including the nearly 90-year-old seller of this solid brick bungalow who is among the last few veterans residing there.
The interior was kept fairly original with an open living and dining area, a kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a recreation room with a built-in bar in the basement.
Outside, the 40-by-136-foot pie-shaped lot supports a private driveway and attached garage.
The Agent's Take: "It's a great location on a cul-de-sac, close to the TTC and steps to great amenities," Ms. Preje said. "[The buyers] will enjoy the gardening because it's very quiet, peaceful and safe property."
