Going Above and Beyond
We had the pleasure of working with Gord Honor to buy our dream home in Oakville last fall. We truly want to pass along to you just how impressed we were with Gord and all he has done with us. His professionalism and attention to detail were amazing and he went above and beyond for us in so many ways. He continues to be a part of our lives with ongoing work getting done through our builder.
When so much of our lives in society today are consumed by the flexibility and convenience of technology, the art of the exceptional client experience can be lost. The Real Estate industry is far from immune to the disruption of traditional value chains that have historically been built on this same exceptional client experience. Personally, I am someone who frequents real estate listings online and I felt very comfortable and confident that I could locate and negotiate and purchase our new home without the support of a real estate agent. Gord Honor has forever changed my opinion of why a true real estate expert is invaluable when you are making the largest purchase of a lifetime. Working through a purchase that went sideways because of issues detected during inspection, Gord Educated us on potential issues, showed up at the house numerous times with inspectors, and managed us through a scenario whereby the speculative builder refused to refund our deposit. Reputation is made when times are challenging and when our need was greatest Gord was there every step of the way, guiding us, advising us, and supporting us. This same level of service has continued as we eventually purchased our dream home in Oakville. Simply put, without Gord we WOULD NOT be in our dream house today. We have a debt of gratitude to Gord, who is not only our realtor but is also a friend, who always put our interests first.

Thanks Gord! You have been awesome!!!! Really appreciate all your help and the extra effort you have gone to for us. Enjoy the rest of the summer.
To whom it may concern, It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter to thank Gord Honor for all the hard work and care he demonstrated in selling my mom & dad's house. I truly feel that Gord went beyond the “call of duty” as a real-estate agent in providing support, guidance and professionalism in selling the home. My father passed away in December 2015 and I had to transition my mother who suffers from dementia into my home. A month later, we needed to find a real-estate agent to sell their house. A Royal Bank representative recommended Gord to me. Right from our first meeting, Gord came across as a very patient, honest and supportive agent that clearly explained the process of selling a home. This truly was a very difficult time for me and our family in dealing with our loss and transitioning my mother into our home. This was all done on my own without any extra family support. Gord provided the extra support by: finding painters, house cleaners, home organizers, staging and helping me with the legal paperwork. In addition to all of this, Gord listened to our thoughts and wishes. He communicated frequently and effectively, always keeping us informed and looking ahead to our next steps. Gord also provided a very detailed and creative plan in selling my mom & dad's house. He used techniques and strategies that incorporated latest technology and social media to its fullest. I was very impressed with the use of a drone and high level photos of the home. As I reflect back on my first meeting with Gord which was in Jan 2016 to the selling of the house in April 2016, Gord was more than a realtor for us. He was a partner and a friend. It is for all these reasons that I would unconditionally recommend Gord Honor to our friends and acquaintances. Gord Honor truly is an outstanding Real-Estate Agent and a man that demonstrated competence, humility, and integrity. Thank you Gord Honor for all that you have done.

"Thanks again for all the help and professional advice when we were buying the house. You certainly facilitated the whole purchasing process efficiently so that we suffered minimal stress for such a huge (for us) step. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to others!"

"During the process of finding and buying our home we presented Gord with some very tricky situations. However, he made the whole experience seem effortless and nothing was too much trouble. A pleasure doing business with you Gord!"
- Liz – Toronto
"Gord did a tremendous job for us in getting my parents' family home sold quickly. Living in a different city and travelling extensively for work meant that I had to rely on my agent for more than just basic service. How many agents take the initiative to shovel a house out of a snowstorm, or mend the property fence? Well, Gord did that and more. Professional, capable, responsive, courteous, certainly a pleasure to work with."

"I have known Gord for over 10 years on a personal level and recently consulted with him on a professional level for the sale and purchase of our properties in Mississauga. This can often prove difficult, however, he was very understanding and was a true professional. Gord was straight forward with the details and presented realistic comparisons which allowed us to make informed decisions. Thanks for your help with the sale and purchase. You have my highest recommendation for buyers and sellers."

"Exceeding expectations in customer service is what Gord accomplished when he sold our house in a stressed market despite the fact we had already relocated clear across the country. Consistently keeping us informed of potential buyers along with the status of recent sales in our area made us to feel at ease that Gord was always taking care of our best interests."

"Gord's experience was a huge asset when searching for our first home. His attentiveness and familiarity with the local market ensured we found the home that fit us best, and at the same time was excellent value."
- Terence and Norma

I purchased my home with Gord in August of 2012. Gord was completely thorough with the analysis of the purchase price and guided me through a multiple offers situation with rationale, patience, guidance and clear communication with all parties involved. Iam really happy with the price we paid for the property. Then when it came to selling an investment property in the February of 2014, I knew that Gord would be the right person. All the way from the intial consultation to preparing and staging the house that was previously rented, Gord connected me with all the right people who did not waste my time and got the work done on time and within my budget. Two weeks later when the house went on the market, it looked immaculate. Three days later, Gord sat beside me in the kitchen and walked me through four offers. I am totally impressed by his attention to detail, professionalism and integrity with the real estate transactions. Most impressive of all things is Gord's calm demeanour in the midst of lots of anxiety and excitement. It also allows him to maintain a good rapport with other real estate professionals. I felt that he was always making suggestions that would work best in my favour. I never felt that he was influencing me to make a decision in haste. Gord looked at each scenario based on its own merits, have an open discussion about all the positives and negatives of each situation, and let me take the lead on making the decisions. I would recommend Gord Honor to anyone who wants to trust a professional with a very important transition/ transaction, seeking the best outcomes with the least amount of anxiety/worries.

“Without the help of Gord Honor – both myself, wife Jessica and our 2 daughter’s would not be settled into our very first home in Milton, ON! Gord was such a pleasure to work with! We were purchasing our first home and had a lot of questions, concerns and basically had no idea what we were doing. Gord was knowledgeable, respectful and took the time to walk us through every step. We never felt pressured or rushed, and he genuinely wanted us to find the perfect home.There were no surprises or issues and he made it such a great experience for us! We will definitely be using Gord again in the future and would recommend him to all of our family and friends.”

Gord helped us sell our house and buy a new home. He provided us with sound advice on all aspects of the both transactions and everything went according to plan. He provided value added services like providing a stager, preparing a brochure and a virtual tour and recommending quality service providers for things outside his scope. What made working with Gord a great pleasure are his values.
