Derek was able to sell my condo before it even hit the market (MLS). It was through his contacts that he found a buyer right away. The condo was in no way ready for selling at that time but yet he was able to get the price I wanted. Im very happy and grateful for the advice he gave through the selling process and the ease of the transaction. He also sticks to his word. I would most definitely recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell.
Derek makes buying a home fun! I wish I could do it all over again. Hey, maybe I will some day and hopefully with Derek again.
My wife Natalie and I recently had the pleasure of working with Derek during the purchase of our new house, and sale of our current home. In today’s Toronto, things move rather quickly, and outcomes can vary tremendously in this busy and increasingly competitive real-estate market. Derek was extremely well versed in his knowledge of this ever changing marketplace, and was obviously well educated in the on goings around not only our current neighborhood, but our new location as well, which proved to be extremely valuable. Derek brought his knowledge, his professionalism, his network, and his hard working attitude to each and every interaction, applying himself extremely well so that we would ultimately be successful in not only the largest purchase of our lives together – but also the largest sale. Thanks to Derek, the entire process took under a month from buying to selling. He is well connected not only within his network of agents, but also carries with him a network of impressive professionals that helped make this process much easier – from painters, to stagers, right down to movers. All very impressive, just like Derek – true professionals, acting quickly and proficiently with skill, at a very good price.
Not only were my wife and I extremely pleased with the end result, we are more than happy to share our story on how well things went all due to our Realtor – Derek Ladouceur. We could not be more ecstatic with the outcome, thank you so much Derek, we are thrilled with the job you’ve done! Not only do we have a Realtor for life, we now have a friend in the real-estate business.

Victor and I would like to extend a warm thanks and gratitude in helping us with the purchase of our Toronto Condo. Living in Cambridge was a challenge to drive to Toronto when new properties came on the market, you made it a very pleasant experience and a quick one. Not only are you a man of integrity, but your patience and professionalism made us at ease when it came to making the final decision. Throughout the entire process we felt that your background as a realtor and your honesty assured us we were in good hands. Not only was the process a pleasant one but a quick and easy one for us, you made us feel like we were your only clients! We bought our condo within two weeks of the start of this process, which shows us that you understood what we were looking for and could deliver. Thank you for making our condo buying experience such a positive one. We will definitely mention you to our friends and family looking for real-estate in the Toronto area!

On being given a referral to work with Toronto Realtor, Derek Ladouceur, we have not looked back. We were emigrating from the UK to Toronto and Derek could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. All the phone calls to the UK before we arrived and finding out exactly what we were looking for, to explaining how the system works over in Canada, to helping us find the perfect house; he was totally prepared to handle everything. When we arrived in Toronto he collected us from the hotel and drove us round tirelessly for three days having booked all the appointments at houses we wanted to view and it was effortless for us. The amount of work he did on our behalf and the trouble he went to was fantastic. We bought one of the homes we viewed in those three days and it is stunning. He has helped us in every way and we have no hesitation in recommending Derek to anyone looking for the perfect home in Toronto. He could not have done more to help us.

Our condo was recently sold by Derek Ladouceur of Re/max Realty. We couldn’t have had a better experience. From our first meeting, through staging, photographing the space, showings, to the final selling, Derek made the process seamless and stress-free. His enthusiasm, knowledge of the process and experience from other sales kept us comfortable and confident that we had chosen our realtor well.
Derek kept us informed of every detail and offered good advice when needed. When we had concerns Derek listened, was responsive, and addressed those concerns. As proof of his excellence as a professional, he was able to sell our unit for the highest amount ever sold in our building. We highly recommend Derek to anyone who wishes to sell in our city.

Last year when my life was very busy and hectic. I decided to sell my house and I chose Derek to work with he is very professional and a pleasure to work with he helped to take a lot of stress away when making decisions. He helped by providing ideas to best prepare my home for selling, and it sold over asking within a week, he’s always on time and very responsive to emails and phone calls and was a great to keep me informed and calm. He even connected me with all the other services I need to sell my home like a lawyer. Additionally, Derek even went out of his way to help me purchase a new home outside of the city. It’d be a pleasure to work with Derek again.
We will highly recommend Derek to anyone who wants their needs met quickly and efficiently. Derek will always ensure that his client’s needs are met. Derek is aggressive when selling your house, but not pushy when you are looking for a house. I would also mention that Derek’s after sale service is also amazing. Because of his connections, we found some reliable and amazing people to help us move and deal with other things when selling our condo and when moving into our new home.

Derek Ladouceur is an amazing agent. My wife and I found him through a referral during a stressful time when we were selling our condo and looking for a house.
Our previous agent was pessimistic and would not take our instructions. He told us to put our condo on the market at a price that was $200,000.00 below the market value, instead of doing his job and try to promote our condo at the fair market value.
After firing our previous agent and meeting with Derek, it was like a breath of fresh air. Derek is assertive, optimistic and has lots of helpful connections. He listened and understood our needs. Within a week of meeting him, he sold our condo close to the price that we were asking for. Within 2 weeks of selling our condo, Derek also helped us find our dream home.
We were about to get married and looking to upsize from our downtown Toronto condo to a home in our favourite area of the city, the Beaches. We met Derek. Unlike many other realtors, he was professional and not overbearing. He worked tirelessly to list and sell our condo at a price we were happy with. He also helped us to purchase our new home in the Beaches. The market in Toronto was so competitive that we have no doubt we would not have won the bidding war if it weren’t for Derek. Without hesitation, we would use Derek again and highly recommend him for anyone’s real estate needs.
