Dear Khalid,
We wanted to thank you for the outstanding service you provided for the selling of our house and
purchase of our forever home. After spending over 25 years in one place, the decision to sell was not
taken lightly. We were looking for the complete package– a reliable, trustworthy, dedicated Realtor who
truly listened to our needs and understood the markets. Not only did you deliver on all fronts, but our house sold for exceptionally more than we had anticipated! 
From selling to purchasing, start to finish, your customer service was exceptional. We found you to be a true professional who demonstrated integrity, honesty and reliability.  Without hesitation, we will definitely recommend you as a Realtor to our friends, family and anyone looking to buy/ sell their home!

Many thanks,

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Khalid in selling our house. We only occupied the house for about one year and due to personal reasons we have to sell it.  As you can imagine that can be a scary thing. We searched website after website, but kept coming back to Khalid's. Thank god we did. He was awesome to work with, and was very flexible and dependable. While both of us work with tight schedule he was available to us when we needed him (as he himself lives in Millpond! best location for an agent who deals a lot of properties in Millpond). He was pleasant to work with and most importantly he was completely honest in all of his dealings throughout the process. The selling process went very smoothly and we couldn't have been happier. Khalid respond to e-mails, and phone calls and have a vast knowledge about Cambridge and the real estate market.  For whoever wants to buy/sell houses in Millpond, don't think twice, go straight to Khalid.

Khalid, We want to thank you for doing an excellent job selling our Hespler home. Our first impression of you was that you are professional, knowledgeable and honest. You sold our home in less than a month for more than the asking price and we couldn't be happier. We will recommend you to everyone!

Hello Khalid,
 
We've been in our new home for a little over a month now and are still loving it. I know that it was a long search with you to find the right place but I'm happy that we did find it. We probably didn't look as long as some but looked longer than others. Throughout the process we were happy with the level of knowledge, advise and patience that you brought to the table.
 
Going in I did not have a good experience with our previous agent who seemingly knew nothing of the market, did not have any advance knowledge of any properties that we visited‎, and overall just did not add very much to the buying or selling process. You were the exact opposite of that and showed that there is value to working with an agent. The thing I appreciated most is that you could walk into almost any home and draw comparisons to others in the market or that were sold recently. It helped give us a good idea of how these houses stacked up.
 
Thanks for helping us to find our dream home and to sell our old home. I'd be happy to refer you to anyone I know that is in the market to buy and/or sell.

Thank you again for all you have done for us. Needless to say you have guided us very well in reducing the price at the strategic moment and when to hold when we thought for sure we would need to do another amendment due to the similar house  across the street who had dropped their price significantly. We cannot thank you enough. 
 
Please rest assured we will have nothing but good things to say about Khalid Zaffar and will spread your name to all our neighbors & family who hopefully will one day will contact you when they need to sell their home. You are an honest and true professional.
 
Kind Regards,

It’s true! Khalid provides exceptional service for less!

This summer Khalid helped us with the sale of our home in Cambridge and the purchase of our new home in Burlington. We are extremely happy with his service on both transactions.

SELL SIDE:
Khalid’s knowledge of the Millpond area is unrivaled.  His insight regarding the various Millpond models, finishes/features, lot characteristics and corresponding valuations was a tremendous asset, allowing us to confidently arrive at the 'right' list price for our property. 
Khalid provides the whole package.  His staging advice and superb marketing materials (especially the photography – amazing shots!) helped us to sell our home in just two weeks at a purchase price over asking and with a desirable closing date.  


BUY SIDE:
Khalid and his team were incredible to work with during our search.  They were very responsive and accommodating when organizing the 'last minute' showings required to participate in a ‘hot’ Burlington market.  
Khalid’s experience was paramount during our negotiations (we were competing for a property with multiple offers - a stressful situation for any home buyer!).  He provided the necessary 'calming' guidance and strategic input during the process.  He derived a competitive proposal, walked us through the iterations and ultimately secured the house for us at a price within our budget.
Khalid Zaffar is a true professional.  We strongly recommend Khalid to anyone looking for a first-rate realtor.

Dear Khalid,

Claude and myself wish to thank you for once again providing exceptional service, true expertise and professionalism without parallel during our recent transactions.
You answered all our questions every time and in a timely fashion, from those that are seemingly inconsequential to those that are intelligent and very important to the process of buying and selling. Your personal service and the warmth with which you balance your professionalism continues to impress us. While we hope to remain in this fine house for a very long time, we wouldn't consider selling or buying without you and eagerly share your name whenever real estate is discussed among friends and colleagues.

We wish you much success and excellent health for the remainder of 2014 and hope you have a wonderful summer break with your family. Should you ever need anything from us, do not hesitate to contact us as we regard you very highly.

Sincerely,
Joanne and Claude Leduc

Recently, we have decided to sell our triplex and  we had chosen Khalid Zaffar from Kingsway Real Estate Brokerage. He got multiple offers for our triplex within 3 days on the market. With his help we got  20k more than the asking price for our triplex. Therefore I am very satisfied with the service he had provided as our Agent. It is our pleasure to recommend Mr. Khalid Zaffar as real estate agent. He's always there when we needed him and was always having our best interests. We recommend him for his expertise, experience and integrity. Looking forwards to doing business with him again.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a company that sells houses at 1%, I knew I couldn’t sell my home on my own but surely wasn’t going to pay 5% commission to the bigger companies. I cannot even tell you how wonderful Khalid was at always keeping us informed, being there for us if we had questions or concerns any time day or night. Our house had a very short closing date so we decided to rent as we didn’t want to be rushed into buying something else so quickly. With very limited rental availability in Hespeler, Khalid was able to secure a rental for us quickly, allowing a seamless transition from our previous home to the next. He was able to bring down my stress level as I was worried my family and I would have nowhere to live between our closing date and finding something to rent. He went above and beyond for us, I am so grateful to him. I will recommend Khalid to everyone I know and I will surely be using his services again. Don’t even think about going with another real estate agency. Choose Team 1 Percent today!

Thanks to Mr 1Percet....

We just accepted a new job out of town and now faced the gruelling task of selling our house. We only purchased the property 8 months ago, so initial thoughts were not looking good for profits. For that reason we contemplated listing on our own with some popular FSBO companies to save commissions. After weighing the pros and cons of listing with an agent vs not, we settled with listing with a realtor. Well let me tell you "settled" is not the right word. We called Khalid on the long weekend, he was quick to answer and set up a appointment. Within a week we were listed and after the first showing.... SOLD for over asking! So what do you get for 1%? More for less, his photographer took more photos that any other Realtor I have worked with. He brought a great market analysis that priced our home higher than we ever thought it would sell for. Not to forget he was with us till the wee hours of the morning completing the deal.

Thanks Khalid for the easy sale of our property.

Thanks Mr 1% !

We considered selling our home privately, but soon realized There was alot we didn't know. Since our motivation was to save money on commission, we couldn't resist investigating Mr.1%. We were confident after our first meeting with Khalid. He was very knowledgeable, and made us feel comfortable with the entire process. He sold our house in less than 2 months, and got more than our asking price. We couldn't of imagined a better outcome! Thanks again to you Khalid, and the entire Kingsway Realty team. You are the best!

Khalid Zaffar,
 

As you know we listed our house with 2 different agents for 7 months but unfortunately were not able to sell it. Once we met you we understood that you are knowledgeable person about housing market and have good network in Cambridge and GTA. Your great experience and knowledge of the Cambridge market helped us selling our home within 10 days. We made more $$$ than what we expected with your help, positive direction and recommendations. The service and personal attention we have received from you was excellent and surprising.

 

You have sold more houses than any other agents here in Millpond. I can see your sign almost every street of Millpond. For sure, I will recommend all of my friends and neighbours whether they are buying or selling their home to work with before going any other real estate agents.

 

The best regards,

Khalid,

Thank you again for your outstanding efforts in both the sale of our existing home and with the purchase of a new one. Throughout this process you exceeded our expectations with your calm demeanor and vast knowledge and experience of your field. At all times you demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and attention to the details. On the purchase we had decided to look in a relatively large geographical area. This required multiple days of viewings in order for us to find a new home that suited our needs. Despite all of the travel required you made this exercise enjoyable and helped ensure a successful outcome.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling; we would highly recommend Khalid to help you in this life changing move.

Regards,

We would like to thank team one percent for doing an amazing job in selling our house. Their professional conduct and knowledge of real estate industry blew us away and their competition. Team One Percent's understanding of the Cambridge market allowed us for an incredible  $20,000 over what other local agents told us to list the house at. With Team One Percent's experiences in negotiations and well thought out strategies, we were able to obtain 99.3% of asking price. We're very thankful to have met Leo and Khalid and would not hesitate to recommend their services to friends and family.
More Power to you guys! Your Reign has just begun...you will revolutionize this industry 1% at a time!!!

Team One Percent is very professional and understands the various aspects of the real estate market, such as property values, legal issues and marketing.
They did a great job of advertising and promoting our property using various
marketing tools to ensure our property was seen by all potential buyers.
Leo and Khalid demonstrated professionalism, integrity, and attention to
detail but most of all, they exceed our expectations by selling our
home over the asking price. We will use their services again.

Just around the time that we were contemplating selling our house,
the Team 1 Percent flyer arrived on our doorstep. I thought that 1%
selling commission sounded too good to be true but decided to
investigate further. We meet with Leo and Khalid a few days later.
They explained that their selling commission is low because they were
confident we would recommend them to our friends and family once we
use their service. Simply put, what they might loose in commission
they would make up in volumes by providing the same level of service
as agents charging higher sales commission. I must admit Team 1
Percent was true to their word.


Our home was listed on MLS less than 48 hours after signing the
contract. We were also added to the New Properties mailing list so
that we were automatically notified of new listings meeting our
pre-determined criteria. Khalid was always available to answer any
questions that we had. Being a home inspector in his previous career,
Khalid was able to point out potential flaws on many of the homes we
when to view.


When we finally found our new home, Khalid & Leo went to bat for us
negotiating a price well within our budget.
Team 1 Percent delivered top-notch service without us paying high
commissions! We recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a
home.

Dear Leo and Khalid,

Dennis and I cannot thank-you enough for the exceptional work you did for us when it came to selling our home, and purchasing our new one. We had expected the process to be so stressful, and what we actually experienced was the opposite: our home sold so quickly, for over asking price, and our new home is so amazing!
From the beginning, we knew we had chosen the right realtors from the hundreds of choices we had: your expertise in the Milton market was obvious, as was your care taken in the appraisal of our home. The recommendations you had regarding staging our house were spot on, since our house sold within hours. You made the negotiations process less intimidating with your explanation of it, and it really felt as if we were sitting in on yourselves, personally negotiating the sale of your own homes, for all the respect and care you took. And probably most importantly, you were always available when we had questions or concerns regarding this life-changing process.
We so appreciate how your client care did not stop with the finalization of the purchase of our home. First off, you helped us identify the things we really would find important in a new home, to assist us in the overwhelming process of choosing the right one. When you both came to us late that night we thought our new foundation was leaking (thank goodness it wasn’t!), we were so touched by your concern and recommendations...it felt as though friends had come by to help us. You really didn’t have to come out all that way, your work was done, yet you did. That was priceless to us...thank-you!
It is with so much enthusiasm that I recommend your team to EVERYONE who mentions that they are thinking of buying or selling a home! I tell them that they will absolutely be 150% satisfied with the dedication, support, and knowledge of your team, as we were and still are. Keep it up!
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!!

Warm Regards,
