The Baird Team of professional real estate agents works with you to educate, and sell your home, here’s how we can help:

Understanding Your Needs

The first steps in the process of buying a home in the Durham Region is meeting with The Baird Team. Our first meeting is all about getting to know each other and discussing your criteria so that we can find a home that perfectly matches it. We will walk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect.

Getting You Qualified

An important step in the home buying process is knowing what you can afford. The Baird Team simplifies the process by working with mobile mortgage agents from each of the major Canadian banks, as well as mortgage brokers, who contact you when it’s convenient for you.

Using creative marketing techniques, we have the ability to target specific neighbourhoods and uncover unique market opportunities for our buyers.

Previewing Homes

Our team will waste no time finding the perfect home for you. Where possible, we will preview each property to make sure it truly fits your needs and wants, arrange for you to view the home with us, and ensure that proper inspections are done so you can make an informed decision.

In-Depth Research

Our team completes a thorough market evaluation to uncover critical information including the home builder, age, and quality of materials used in the home and compare it other homes that recently sold in the area. This way we help determine the homes market value.  We have experience working in many different markets and situations; we know how to navigate bidding wars and for sale by owners.

Going The Extra Mile

Purchasing a home is an emotional experience for both the buyer and seller, which is why we always aim to deeply understand the situation of both parties. Through presenting our offers in-person at every opportunity and building trusting relationships with the seller and their agent, we consistently help our buyers get the best deal possible for the home they love.

Baird Real Estate Client Testimonials

TESTIMONIALS

  • After poor experiences with competing agents, we decided to give the Baird team a call. They were quick to answer the phone and presented a clear knowledge of current market conditions and pricing. They were prompt to visit our residence, providing consultation and overviewing their listing process. The diversity of the team offers a unique advantage for both purchasing and selling. Paul and Craig were able to provide both insight and resources critical to ensure that our house sold for top dollar. Leveraging top contractors and a strong staging team, we were blown away by the exceptional presentation of our home. During the offer period, the team was both firm and strategic, ensuring that we received the best price for our sale. When purchasing, Paul and Craig were extremely patient and did not make us feel pressured to close a deal. We viewed several properties prior to submitting an offer. In a multiple offer environment, Paul and Craig still managed to negotiate a fair price. We have shared the Baird team with friends and family. Highly recommended!

    Paul M

  • Paul, Craig and Michael are consummate professionals. With a keen focus on strategy, these kind gentleman employed strategic measures based upon the current market conditions which not only got our home sold within 5 days of listing, but also $250k over asking. We received 22 offers on a home that we thought would be immensely difficult to sell. Due to their sound knowledge and expertise, we had a smooth experience and transaction with the buyer as well. Paul and Craig maintained the highest level of ethics during the entire process; showing us that there is no one we would prefer to work with for such a large and impactful transaction in our family’s life. We highly recommend working with the Baird Realtor Team. They are the real deal. I imagine other agents will take note of their successes for many years to come.

    Moazzam Pathan

  • We were very nervous about selling the home we have lived in for 25 years. The Baird Team came highly recommended by another family member so we hired them to sell our home. We are so happy we went with them. They met with us a few times to explain the process and were always available to answer our many questions. Mike, Craig and Paul were very easy to talk to and put our minds at ease several times throughout the process. A special shout out to Craig for all of the work he did on our behalf . Thank you for making such a major life decision run so smoothly. Karen and Greg Noel

    Karen Noel

  • We can't say enough about the Baird Real Estate Team. They truly went above and beyond the call of duty for us. We were in the process of walking away from our dream home; when collectively, Paul, Michael and Craig came up with a creative solution that resulted in us being able to realize our dream. When it came time to sell our home, they did an outstanding job with the presentation of our house, and organizing an effective sales strategy, resulting in a better than expected final outcome. They are the utmost professionals and we would urge anyone looking for a real estate agent to look no further than the Baird Real Estate Team. We will be forever grateful. Bob & Sue Hollaway

    Bob Hollaway

  • An incredibly professional and supportive team. Selling your home is a very personal experience. Whether we were purchasing or selling we had complete confidence our needs were being met. We had the pleasure of working with Paul, Craig & Michael over the past year and highly recommend any member of the team when looking for guidance and support during a purchase or a sale of your home or property. Thank you to the whole team for helping us realize our dream property/home purchase and for selling our current home with the very best outcome.

    P Schmid

  • It was an absolute pleasure to work with Michael and his son Paul.
    Within minutes of meeting them I knew they were the right real estate agents for my family.
    They made the entire experience of purchasing a new home a complete pleasure and I had complete trust that they had our best interests in mind.
    I would recommend them to anyone in need of an agent and will work with them again when my family is ready to move again.

    Maja Samborski

  • Paul, Craig and Michael were amazing to deal with when our late parent’s home had to be sold. They were knowledgeable, sincere, and understanding. I can't emphasize enough how their warmth and compassion helped make this emotional transaction relatively stress free. When help was needed with a specific concern, they told us not to worry and to leave it to them. They followed through and easily dealt with the issue. Whether you are buying or selling, I strongly encourage you to give Paul, Craig and Michael a call. They are absolutely terrific!
