We just recently purchased our first home with Emanuel. We got to see a variety of houses to choose from to fit our needs. I am beyond impressed with the whole experience it went super smooth from start to finish. Now we get to enjoy our first owned property!!
What to talk about the Catana Team? They are the best! Not only in the region but everywhere I know in Canada and other countries. Emanuel and team, I have no words to thank you for all your support, personal involvement, and knowledge of all regions, especially KWC, you are more than amazing, you guys made our dream come true!
We have had the greatest service ever, in all aspects, in the whole renting process, and now in our first home purchasing process here in Canada, you were sensational.
Congratulations on your professionalism and for the human beings that you are, not only concerned with the entire process but with everything involved behind the scenes of our style as a person, couple, and family.
I have this expression in my mind and life and it can be applied perfectly for the Catana Team: God brings some people together for purposes to be fulfilled.
Thank you for everything!
I would like to thank you so much for the incredible job you did on the walls and for the beautiful gift you left us yesterday. The house looks amazing and we couldn't have chosen a better realtor. Your commitment and dedication to your clients are undeniable, and we are extremely grateful for all the help and effort you put into our life project of buying this house and getting out of renting. We thank God for your life and for the wonderful person and professional that you are.
May God abundantly bless your life and your family.

The Catana team was very attentive and supportive of us. They were very flexible and available for us during the whole process. They helped us to see the advantages and/or disadvantages of visiting houses according to our lifestyle in a very respectful way. They also worked really hard negotiating what was suitable for us. Even after the deal, they kept supporting us with some questions and concerns. Working with the Catana Team was a great experience that we´ll definitely repeat if needed.

3Why should I use a Real Estate Agent to sell or buy a home?
Real Estate transactions are a full-time job. You must be ready to answer phone calls and show the home at a moment's notice. A Real Estate Agent's job is to take on these responsibilities so that you can be at ease during the transaction.
Real Estate Agents also have access to vast amounts of information and databases not available to the public. They will be able to learn more about a home than an average homeowner. You also have peace of mind that all registered salespeople in Ontario must be insured through RECO's (Real Estate Council of Ontario) insurance program, including errors and omissions insurance, consumer deposit insurance, and commission protection insurance.
4I'm thinking about buying my first home. Where do I start?
When buying your first house, the first question you need to ask is, "What can I afford?". In order to answer this question, you need to seek out a pre-approval. A pre-approval will look into your current financial situation and decide how much you can afford based on how much a lender will be willing to lend to you. For more information on the topic, contact us today, and we can put you in touch with a mortgage specialist.
5What is a Buyer's Market?
A buyer's market is when the supply of homes is greater than the demand. Simply put, buyers have more options when looking to buy homes. Some signs of a buyer's market include homes selling below the asking price, homes being listed for long periods of time before selling, and the average number of homes being sold is down.
6What is a Seller's Market
A seller's market is when the demand for homes is greater than the supply. With fewer homes on the market and demand still present, sellers may receive multiple offers on their homes, resulting in bidding wars and higher prices. Some signs of a seller's market include multiple offer situations, homes selling above the asking price, being listed for short periods, and selling quickly.
7What are the best upgrades to increase the value of my home?
A well-maintained and updated home will always attract more attention and benefit from the increased value. There are plenty of inexpensive upgrades that you can do to improve the value of your home. Before completing any updates, research current popular trends and choose updates that reflect these trends to have the most significant impact.
New paint and floors are the best way to give your home a new look without breaking the bank. You will instantly notice how much of a change they make. Some other improvements you can make are:
- Increase the curb appeal with a well-maintained lawn and flower beds
- Freshen up your driveway and repair any potholes or cracks
- Update the faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms
- Update kitchen hardware and doorknobs/handles
- Update light fixtures
- Complete any general repairs around the home
Follow these tips, and you are sure to increase the value of your home!
