As a Government entity, FCO requires the highest standards in service, transparency, expertise. After interviewing 5 agents, Belinda, by far, was the unanimous choice amongst our selection committee (4 representatives). Her knowledge and research of the market (recent sales, how FCO’s properties compared to surrounding properties, suggested value, etc.) was very thorough and detailed. She was able to speak to all the recent sales in the area in depth, not simply print out an MLS report of the recent sales. She further assessed each property and how they compared to ours in various categories (location, renos, lot quality, finishes, etc.) and assigned +/- value. This was very helpful in assessing and determining a realistic pricing strategy.
Her attention to detail throughout the process was fantastic. She offered extra services that others did not (e.g. handyman service, coordinating disposal of excess furniture and junk, prelisting home inspection, exclusive internet address, links to multiple websites, etc.). Even with the complexities of FCO’s ownership structure and approval process, Belinda was able to professionally navigate all the special clauses and terms required by FCO in conjunction with our legal counsel. Her communication and updates were frequent, and we have been very pleased with the end of day results (i.e. pricing, deposit terms, timing) in all cases.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Belinda and would encourage anyone to hire her for their residential real estate needs.

Belinda was recommended to us by several friends who have bought and sold properties with her. All spoke extremely highly of her, and upon meeting Belinda it quickly became evident why. Belinda is extremely hard working, warm, and knowledgeable. She doesn’t overlook the fine details, and you can always rely on her for an honest opinion and to get things done. She is always willing to go above and beyond, and truly had our best interest at heart through the entire process of buying our new home and selling our condo. It took us nine months to find our dream home, a mere few days to sell our condo, and we couldn’t have done it without her help and perseverance. She will definitely be recommended to all of our friends and family as we cannot say enough good things about her. Thanks Belinda!

I worked with Belinda on selling my condo and purchasing my first home. She is reliable, efficient and resourceful. Her knowledge and relationships in the industry became quickly relevant when dealing with property in Toronto. Great to work with and has an impressive network of professionals to help with any of your potential property needs. Thanks for all your help!
Belinda helped us find the perfect home. As first time buyers we did not know for sure what type of home and area in Toronto would suit us best. We looked at a lot of places in our search and quickly discovered that buying a first home will primarily be a matter of negotiating and balancing our own expectations and vision of what we wanted. This all changed when Belinda found us our current new home. Both me and my fiancé feel we have compromised none of our ‘wants’ in a location we love. We cannot be more thankful for Belinda’s hand in helping us build our future.

I bought my home through Belinda and I highly recommend working with her. She is very knowledgeable and took the time to speak with me to find out what I wanted in a home. She knows Toronto well and was able to explore options in various areas to ensure I got the right place for me in my price point. She was honest, patient, and never pushy because she really is looking out for your best interest. Both Belinda and her assistant Cynthia worked together to make it a stress free experience. They were very flexible and were always available via phone and email. Even after buying, they followed up with me to ensure I had everything I needed. Belinda and Cynthia make a fantastic team.
Belinda alleviated the stress of shopping for a house in this competitive market of multiple offers and bidding wars. Her savvy, confident, knowledgeable approach kept us from being emotionally irresponsible. Through hard work and due diligence she procured our dream house at a phenomenal price and good luck had very little to do with it. Our former home required a quick sale to meet the early closing. Belinda kept our trepidation in check, and created a sales presentation that was second to none. Her uncanny sense of market forces was evident as our greatest hopes were met and our worries quashed. Before these transactions we did not appreciate the importance of a top agent. Belinda is a household name in our family now and we’ll never forget the job she did for us.
Thanks Belinda, from the whole Vujacic family,
Steve, Sylvia, Valerie, Krista, Robert, and Thomas
I wanted to write this thank you letter as I was thrilled with the marketing that you did to sell our house. The web site that you created specifically to sell my property was an original and unique idea. The site was extremely well done and really showcased all the features of our home that we felt made it special. The way that you incorporated the plans and the final product on the site, really allowed potential buyers access to our home in a way that traditional marketing approaches would not. We were also able to measure how many people visited the site and receive feedback directly from them. Your ability to go the extra distance and your first class approach to selling enabled us to receive top dollar for our property. When it came to buying our future home, you really did your research. We were ecstatic that your strategy worked when it came to purchasing our new home. Even though there were seven offers on the property, you were able to get the property for us. Thank you for all your hard work!

We first met Belinda Mulford in the spring of 2006 while at an open house in Central Toronto. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market, and quickly developed an excellent working relationship with her. Belinda did an exceptional job negotiating the purchase of our new home and did not miss a trick. She checked with the city that all renovations on our new house were properly completed, with all the required building permits. She also ensured that the parking pad in front of our house was legal. Belinda took care of things that we did not even think to consider. With her experience she was able to look after all of our needs. We look forward to receiving her monthly newsletters and have recommended her to family and friends. We are now settled and enjoying our new home. Belinda Mulford is an honest and professional woman, with an astute knowledge of the real estate market. She is the only real estate agent that we would ever work with.
