DAYS ON THE MARKET Three

LISTING AGENT Lena Preje, Re/Max Ultimate Realty Inc

The Action: The sellers of this three-level side split residence in Willowdale reached out to three realtors and the first to respond was agent Lena Preje, who listed and sold the property three days after initial contact. Offers could be made at any time, so one of the first five visitors quickly made a strong proposal.

What They Got: For over 40 years, the original owner occupied this detached residence on a 58- by 126-foot lot facing a quiet cul-de-sac close to parks and schools to shops and bus services.

Inside, there is a main floor living room and kitchen with a walkout to the backyard and patio, two carpeted bedrooms upstairs and a tiled bedroom, family room and one of two bathrooms on the lower level.

Further down in the basement, there is a recreation room.

The Agent's Take: "With the right marketing strategy, you can avoid a bidding war and still get the highest price," says Ms. Preje, who did everything from promoting the property online to canvassing the area on foot for potential buyers. "You don't need too many offers, the first offer is the best one."

Though builders were more interested in the lot, the new owners plan to construct their own home there. "It's a beautiful piece of land on a child-safe, cul-de-sac," says Ms. Preje. "It's an excellent location, walking distance to the TTC, shopping and everything."
