NOVEMBER 2018 BUYER
When I first thought about buying a condo I immediately thought about my long time friend Jim Taylor and his partner Kate Bassett. I knew that buying a condo was not going to be easy as I work alot and do not have alot of free or spare time but I have all the confidence Jim and Kate can get it done.
I have known Jim for over 40 years and I couldnt be more pleased as to how things evolved. Right from the get go they were on it. Their team of experts were amazing to deal with answering all of my questions while looking out for my best interests.
I know it wasn't easy but they made buying a condo a very pleasant experience, Professionals through and through. Thank you very much Jim , Kate and your team. I could not have done it without you. Much appreciated! *cheers*
Kate Bassett was our realtor in the purchase of our new home and the selling of our previous one. What stood out for us was the time and care she put into listening to our questions and concerns, and the dedicated approach she has with her clients. As a stay at home mom she was very attentive to my needs, and the issues that arose with showing and staging with two young children. I never felt pressured or alone in the process, she was with me every step of the way. She was always available for anything we needed explained or answered. She really went above and beyond for us and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell. Thank you so much Kate for making what may have seemed like an impossible process actually feel enjoyable and easy, and thanks for making our kids feel so at ease with such a huge change in their young lives!

Buying or selling a home is never easy. Its a huge decision for any person or family. For me having a realtor who goes above and beyond, made all our decisions easy ones. Kate Bassett is outstanding at her job and makes the transition from one home to another an enjoyable one. Kate is always there when you need her and always gave the best advice. Without her we wouldn't have our dream home.
This testimonial is long overdue. After weeks of unpacking I'm finally proud and honored to write a review about an outstanding real estate agent. It started back in October when a friend of ours introduced us to his long, time friend Eric Axiak. Eric is the broker of his own company and when we met Eric the day we were looking for agents he brought along one of his colleagues James C Taylor. James is the one to help us with selling our condo and all our house hunting needs and any questions we may have. To this day my family and I are very greatful for all the help James has done for us. James is down to earth and fun at times while at the same time very professional, and his unlimited range of knowledge in the construction and housing helps a lot while we were searching for our home. It took us months and months to sell and search but James never lost faith and was always a phone call away ensuring us we will get it done. Patience is also one of James' outstanding characteristics. So when we finally sold the condo and found the right home, James was on the ball getting our offers in and working non-stop to get us to close the deal. After all these months I can now call my home my own. Thanks to Eric and his team and many, many, thanks to our realtor James C Taylor.
Jonathan, Regina, and family.
I'd love that glass of wine and I will toast to you. You worked so hard for me and I truly appreciate all you've done. You really earned your 5%!!
Kate Bassett most definitely stands out as a Realtor. As a Chiropractor, recently, I have been in process of branching out and opening my own Multidisciplinary Practice. I have sought out other Realtors in the past, but found that they did not take the time to understand my needs. I found Kate's approach to be refreshing. She first spent ample time with me, assessing my exact requirements for the clinic space. She proceeded with sending me e-mails of property matches. As a busy Practitioner, this was a great way for me to sort out locations I was interested in online and narrow down my search. Kate constantly followed up with me and took the time to show me spaces of interest. As a first time buyer, she has also taken the time to give me valuable advise. Kate is extremely dedicated and passionate about what she does. She really goes above and beyond for her clients and it is clear for anyone that works with her to see that it's not just about making a sale for her. She sincerely wants to ensure that her clients are fully satisfied. I would highly recommend Kate Bassett as she stands out form the millions of other Realtors out there. Thank you Kate for helping me with my search for my dream practice!

My name is Nicola and my fiance and I recently used Kate's services to find our first home. We instantly made a good connection with Kate and knew this would be a good fit. Our instincts were validated through Kate's diligence and efficiency. Kate helped us every step of the way and often went over and beyond for us. She was available almost twenty-four hours a day to answer our questions and give us guidance. She understood our needs and worked well with others to achieve our goals. We are so fortunate to have found Kate and we would recommend her services to anybody.

I was impressed by how knowledgeable Kate was when it came to sales for our area. On our first meeting, she came prepared with all the comparable sales and left us with a game plan to sell our home in a very short period of time. She recommended inexpensive changes, got us in touch with excellent contractors who performed the work on short notice and pushed us to meet very short deadlines. In the end, all her effort led to a quick sale with an above asking offer. She was also helpful and patient when helping me purchase a new home. She understood my needs and helped me focus on areas and types of housing that would meet them. Her negotiation skills helped me find the perfect home for my family at an amazing value. She also recommended a mortgage broker who found me a low rate with a well known bank. I will definitely be returning to Kate for her services in the future and recommend her to anyone serious in selling/buying and willing to put a little effort into it." Thanks Kate!" Again, I can't thank you enough for all the work you did. You're the best Kate! Rob
Our experience with James was great! We were going through some new and exciting challenges (new born baby, relocation across the country, new career, etc) and some unplanned ones (back surgery) at the time we were looking at properties. James was able to work off our needs and wants list and effectively map out several properties for us to look at while we were not very mobile. James was so effective that we found the home for our family very quickly.... and in our situation this was important, and he nailed it. He has done everything he said he would do and has always followed up things quickly and professionally. We are very grateful to have had James guide us through the difficult process of finding the right home for our family!
I chose Kate Bassett as our realtor to sell our home because her expertise in the field convinced me she was right for the job. Kate knows the area well and does her homework. Her confidence and knowledge of the market proved to be gold. We listed and sold our home within the same week. She worked hard to help with all our needs in the transaction. She was quick to help with any questions and provided crucial information that helped in the selling of our home. The communication between client and realtor was impeccable! The level of service exceeded my expectations. Overall we are very pleased with the outcome!!! Thank you Kate!

While selling a home can be a very stressful undertaking, James Taylor made this an enjoyable experience. Immediately after we listed our home with James, he jumped into action mode. He brought in a marvelous photographer, then created a stunning virtual tour with music and a professionally designed brochure in living colour. He also used social media to advertise our home. Within three weeks our home was sold. If you want an honest, hard working, agent who knows how to use all the current technology and advantages of social media, James is the agent for you!
