Buying a home is a significant milestone in your life. While coming up with a checklist of what you want in a home can be relatively easy, the buying process can be daunting if you are not equipped with the knowledge and experience.

To help you with this decision, you want and need a savvy Realtor with experience, knowledge and keen attention to detail. This is where The Seymour Team comes in.

We understand that you have your own wish list in terms of the location, type of home and neighbourhood, amenities, transportation and others. As a listing specialist, we will guide you through the search process and together, we will evaluate the properties to fit your suitability and affordability, always putting forward your best interests.
We will deliver an informed and intelligent offer to give you the edge over other offers. How you write a winning offer depends on the marketplace and whether it is a seller’s or buyer’s market. With Jethro as your buying agent, we will write an offer that will give you the edge.
As a Real Estate Professional, we will communicate your Offer to Purchase to the seller, or the seller’s representative, on your behalf. Sometimes, there may be more than one offer on a property at the same time. We will guide you through this process.

"Jethro was incredibly helpful through the whole process of getting our house ready for sale as well as actually selling it. In addition to arranging for staging, photography, and an extensive marketing campaign, he also took care of a bunch of little things that could have slipped through the cracks.
I found Jethro to be very responsive, which meant I could ask him about little things and he would get back to me promptly. And at the end of the day, he got a deal done for us that we were very happy with."
Marcel Gort - Delighted Davisville Village home seller
Jethro recently sold our home in Davisville Village and we can't say enough great things about our experience with him!
Jethro and his team did a phenomenal job managing the process from start to finish. From the outset, he let us know what to expect and positioned us for the best results possible. We gave him very tight timelines and Jethro really delivered! Within days he produced high-quality, extensive marketing, and many showings and quality leads.
Jethro is a master negotiator and ran the negotiations exceptionally well! We can't think of anyone we'd rather have "in our corner" than Jethro.
Eric Hafeman - Happy Davisville Village home seller
We appreciated Jethro’s highly knowledgeable guidance and counsel while looking for a house in midtown Toronto. He knows the midtown neighborhoods inside out and can very quickly assess the value of houses in the area. Jethro has excellent knowledge of the ins and outs of houses, including things that are not always immediately obvious on the surface to home buyers.
His honest, humble, and patient approach is refreshing in the real estate industry — he’s great at his job and had our best interests in mind during the entire process. We truly value him as our agent!
- Michael Long, Pleased Davisville Village home buyer
Jethro's experience and attention to detail really helped us navigate buying a new home and selling ours during very uncertain times. We worked closely together, taking the time to understand the new market as best we all could and there was never any pressure to move forward.
In fact, Jethro always provided us the opportunity to carefully consider next moves and left the final decision to us. We are very happy with how things came together and Jethro played a huge part in making this time as “normal” as possible.
We highly recommend Jethro and his team for all your real estate needs.
-Naomi Kono, Thrilled Davisville Village Seller
After living happily in my house for 47 years , enjoying its comfort and charm of a wonderful neighbourhood the time came to reduce and move.
Apprehensive and inexperienced, I found Jethro Seymour’s help invaluable. Always positive, tactful and knowledgeable he guided me through every step of the process. I never felt pressured to do anything without being well briefed about its necessity or consequences. Jethro promptly responded to all questions I had, and presented objective opinion in every matter. I relied on his advice in full trust that he has my well being in mind. Without any insistence or condition, he often suggested providers of services or help needed, (such as repairmen, movers, and other companies helping seniors in reducing households).
He demonstrated an unquestionable integrity throughout the entire process and was essential in getting the best possible price for my property.
His services are to be highly recommended, without any reservation.
-Lilian Lampert, Very Happy Davisville Village Home Seller
We have very high expectations of any professional we hire, and most don’t meet them. Jethro did in every aspect. We started the process of hiring a Realtor about 18 months before we actually signed the paperwork. We decided not to list the property right away and he never pushed us to do so. He allowed us the time to make the decision that was the best for us.
When we delayed the process, he never became impatient or showed any form of frustration with us. He always demonstrated that he fully understood our unique situation and cared about our needs. He was open, upfront and displayed the utmost integrity.
We have had experience with many realtors over the years and we are usually disappointed. Jethro’s service was stellar and was a delight to work with. He was extremely attentive to our needs, and was always responsive and available to answer any of our questions or concerns throughout the process.
Jethro is a no-nonsense Realtor who understands business and takes homeowners’ best interest to heart. He very clearly and knowledgeably outlined the various strategies for listing our house. He worked extremely hard to get us the price we wanted in a highly volatile and changing real estate market.
Jethro is a best in class real estate broker who is genuine and displays high integrity throughout the process -- a true professional that is hard to come by. We highly recommend Jethro and have openly passed his name on to our friends, colleagues and neighbours.
-Jill and Daryl Johnston, Happy Leaside Home Sellers
We live a hundred miles away, but needed a Realtor in Toronto for an estate sale. I needed a strong and honest recommendation from someone I knew. A business associate, who previously worked with and trusted Jethro, introduced us.
Once the paperwork was signed, Jethro looked after everything. We didn’t even have to go back to Toronto. He got us organized and made the transaction painless for us. He was very attentive to our needs and was very sensitive. Jethro made everything happen, as easy as it could possibly be.
We didn’t have any experience with real estate in the Toronto market and Jethro provided us with the pricing scenarios and strategies that we were comfortable with. He also provided direction around the offer negotiations and he did a great job with all of it.
We were completely satisfied with the initial meeting, the service provided and the recommendations he made. It was a very positive experience in a very difficult situation. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a Realtor in Toronto.
-Joanne MacKenzie, Condo Seller
When we decided to sell our previous home, I literally canvassed the neighbourhood of open houses to see the performances of Realtors. I considered many factors in choosing a Realtor, but I elected to work with Jethro because I liked the job he did.
He had sales in and around my neighbourhood, and wasn't coming from some other neighbourhood or had sales from a distance. His results were excellent from the other sales, so how can you argue with that.
Jethro covered and hit all of the bases. He did everything that was expected to get a proper sale “AND THEN SOME.” He went beyond what's expected. He was right up to date in the real estate market and knew everything he had to know about the market at the time when we sold our house.
He’s a professional, very knowledgeable and uses all of the tools available to him. His excellent SALES and negotiating skills got us a price that was tops in the Toronto marketplace.
I highly recommend Jethro because if you don’t use him, you’ll lose money. There’s lots of agents out there. They just do what they have to to make a sale and that’s it. Jethro goes far beyond. I chose him because he was simply better than the rest.
- Larry and Sandy Lofchick, Happy Home Sellers
We met Jethro at an open house in our neighbourhood about two years prior to buying and selling our house with him. First impressions were great as he has an engaging and welcoming demeanor but more importantly, was well prepared to outline every fine detail of the house in question. We both left the open house thinking that if we were to ever sell our house, this is the type of well prepared and engaging agent we would want to do it with.
Over the years, we were consistently looking for recent sale information and a general opinion of the marketplace so we kept in touch. He proved to be a valuable resource as he not only was very attentive in our information requests, but provided a meaningful opinion to go along with the statistics shared.
When it came time to buy a new home and sell our house, he was very proactive and responsive in a very condensed period of time. All the small nuances and tasks that you don’t realize need to be accomplished when selling your home were outlined in a tactical “game plan” to ensure an efficient and seamless sale. We didn’t have to push for or ask “what’s next” because he either took care of it proactively or it was clearly defined in the plan. The end result was the sale of our property was not only over the asking price, but over the value we truly wanted to receive in the end.
Jethro exceeded our expectations through the negotiation expertise he brought to both sides of the transaction. His negotiation skills were evident as he made each negotiation fair and reasonable for all parties involved and more importantly, provided the best return on our investment (i.e. under ask on the buy and over ask on the sale!).
Long story short, his demeanor and attentiveness to his clients is nothing I've ever seen or experienced before in a real estate transaction. He's a consummate professional who's at the top of his industry and separates himself from his peers through the value, experience and service he brings to the marketplace. Jethro would be our number one choice to re-engage for any future transactions and I'm more than happy to refer him to any of our associates and friends in the future as we know he won’t disappoint!
