Andrew went above and beyond! My mom had lived at her house in Barrie for 29 years and was apprehensive about the process in selling her house. Andrew Hermiston was extremely reliable, caring and understanding of my Mom’s wants and needs. He made my mom his priority and thoroughly explained the process in selling her home and it’s great potential. This helped my Mom feel assured and at ease. Andrew was supportive and put in great effort to sell her house. Andrew and his team helped her prepare the house and in less than a week her house was sold for higher than asking price! He truly made her experience enjoyable. I highly recommend Andrew if you want the job done right! Thank you so much Andrew for all your hard work and professionalism in helping my mom sell her house. We truly appreciate it!

Andrew and his team were absolutely fantastic from day one. Andrew set our house at a price that brought the most people through, resulting in multiple offers and ultimately $275,000 over asking price. Andrew’s team planned the staging and he even paid to have the main hall of the house painted before the photos were done. He walked us through each stage of the process and made sure we were comfortable as we moved through his methodology. The statistics don’t lie, we had 66 visitations, 9 offers 5 of them over $1M and were overwhelmed by the final sale price. He has a talented team of people that will get the most for your house and reduce the stress on you. We highly recommend him and his team of professionals.

As seniors selling a house after 33 years with no family close by was intimidating to say the least. We needed an agent we could trust and count on to protect our interests. That agent was Andrew Hermiston. He was patient and took his time explaining everything to us. Andrew fought hard to get us the best deal possible and went above and beyond what was expected even after we sold. We thank you for being the best agent we have ever had and if anybody asks I will highly recommend you. Out of a rate of 1-10 you are definitely an 11!

Selling with Andrew proved to be the best way to go - proof of $170K over asking is the evidence. Staging and design updates certainly helped- it was a team effort and I only needed to listen and follow the advice - the notion of hiring and expert and trusting in the expert was proven true Like

I want to recommend the whole sales Team who helped us make a big life decision in our retirement. It started with Brennan & Andrew in Barrie, helping us with our new home, who then recommended Vincent & Bri to assist us in Newmarket with selling the existing house. The patience, kindness and expertise of our journey were well above and beyond caring and providing a comfortable no, pressure comfort! I highly recommend all of these incredible people to assist you on your new home journey!

by Gerry Van Pelt

Such a supportive group effort! No question left unanswered...and saw us through every busy step of the way! This move wouldn't have happened without your support professionally and personally!

Drew Hermiston's Mortgage Corner

The next scheduled interest rate announcement from the Bank of Canada is March 8th.

Here is the bottom line from Dominion Lending's Chief Economist, Sherry Cooper, ahead of this annoucement:

"The Bank of Canada must feel pretty good about today’s inflation numbers. They confirm the wisdom of their announced pause in rate hikes at the January meeting. Despite continued strength in the labour market and January retail sales, headline and core inflation measures have declined again, with a five handle now on the headline rate. That is still a long way to the 3.0% inflation forecast by the end of this year, but it is moving in the right direction.
There will be no BoC action when they meet again on March 8. Their press release will be scrutinized for a hawkish versus dovish tone."
