YOUR STEP BY STEP BUYING ADVANTAGE

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. 

Taking The Home Search Offline

Ready to see what’s beyond the MLS? We’ll use our real-life connections to sellers in your ideal area to find you the right home–even if it’s not on the market yet. 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.

Uncovering The Value

We'll help you see past a listing’s first impression–good or bad–to uncover the true value of a home. From the location, to the renovation quality, to the potential in an unfinished basement, you’ll have all the information you need to make a confident, well-rounded 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.

After The Sale

Being your lifelong real estate team means we’re always a call, text, or email away to help–even years after you’ve purchased your home.

TESTIMONIALS

  • We lost our Mom a year ago and Michael was the reality that sold the house to her. Michael and his Son Paul and Craig are absolutely all genuine and loved helping us through it all, a design team that was able to tackle all our needs, including Painting, Carpet, lighting, switches devices, countertops, door knobs and kitchen cabinet hardware, I swear when they finished I thought it was a brand new Home , they then put it on the Market , the offers just kept coming , they worked with us from many miles apart, and made it possible for us to sign contracts online and they always explained everything and the house sold so fast we couldn’t believe it. These guys are the real thing they are seasoned professionals, they know what it takes and how to do it , and they all have a great smile and that means so much to us very trustworthy and just need to say thank you so much Michael, Paul, Craig Your the best.

  • Michael showed up at my door this past fall in september 2019. He was selling my neighbors home (which he sold in under a month). I was really apprehensive because he had been the third realtor who had come to my home to offer services. At the time I knew I needed to sell but I wasn't ready. But he was patient and very kind about it. 2 months later I took a chance and contacted him and his team. He and Paul (his son) showed up that night (November 4) and instantly felt supported and helped. They helped with the Reno's, negotiating a new dishwasher, moving boxes and removing the junk out of my home. They painted, fixed the walls, cleaned and photographed all under one week. The house was ready by December 16 2019. Under the advice of Michael, We listed my home on january 6 and it was sold by january 20 2020 due to their strong work ethic and ability to showcase a good product. The Baird team goes the bat for you. You will NOT be disappointed and I'm glad God led me to chose them. They really made me feel a part of the Baird team!

  • The only person to trust In Clarington with your home is Paul Baird. The knowledge and deep roots the Baird family has in Clarington make them the number 1 choice. Paul’s calm and educated approach both on a buying and selling standpoint is the best! When it comes to negotiating he’s the best to have in your corner. would give them a 5000-star review if I could!

  • 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.
