Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been quite industrious, trying to make something out of nothing, and seeking creative ways to achieving things that I wanted. I never stopped till I got what I wanted. I wanted a pair of shoes that I couldn’t afford, so I sold some snacks to people in my neighbourhood in order for me to acquire them.
This resilient attitude of mine is how I was able to immigrate to Canada from Nigeria, despite the challenges. It’s always pushed me to get well established and set a good foundation for my generations to come.
My parents knew what needed to be done, but making the decision to upsize was hard and financially, it was a stretch, which brought so much tension into the house. There was no privacy in our home, it was a small space for our growing family. There was no place to escape or to be on our own.
Finding the right home is personal for me. I remember how excited I was when my parents bought a family house that met all our needs - we finally had a place that ticked all the boxes. It didn’t just give us more space, it changed how we operated as a family.
When I moved to Canada, I knew that I wanted to create that same stability that had been so important for me and my own family, and that I wanted to help others make smart purchases that would improve their quality of life.
While I was getting my license, a close friend of mine was in the process of buying a house… he met with a realtor who encouraged him to make an offer without doing his due diligence. As a result, my friend couldn’t close on his dream house and he lost over $15,000 of initial deposit to the seller.
I was quite upset for my friend - the whole incident drained him psychologically and financially. All the realtor needed to do was to paint a clear view of what the whole process would be like from the onset, and have his client’s best interest at heart, as opposed to just rushing the process and not watching properly for potential obstacles.
Having watched both the best (in the case of my parents) and the worst (with my friend) happen, I’m well aware of the stress and undue pressure that moving causes. But staying in a home that doesn’t fit your needs can end up being much, much worse. Your home is the greatest investment you ever make, not just in your equity, but in your emotional and mental wellness.
That’s why, with My Clear View Method, my goal is to help my clients feel at ease from their first meeting with me, knowing that they have a Realtor who is goal driven, resilient and relentless to get the deal done with their best interests in mind.
