We had the absolute pleasure of working with Judith and Bruce Fairn on both the purchase of our new home, and the sale of our existing one.
Both Judith and Bruce offered incredible customer service! They truly went above and beyond with everything.
On the purchase of our new home, they were incredibly patient and did everything they could to find us a spot that matched all our criteria, offering virtual tours while I travelled on a plane and putting together multiple offers in the event they couldn’t get a hold of me.
The sale of our family home was emotional, and Bruce and Judith were patient, professional and did everything they could to help fix issues and present the house as optimally as possible. They trimmed our tree, cleaned up our lawn, patched drywall, removed garbage, you name it.
I highly recommend Judith and Bruce and will use them in any and all future real estate transactions, not to mention refer them to all our family and friends.
Judith and Bruce are just the most refreshing, professional and kind people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with!
~ Vanessa and Franco De Caria
Judith and Bruce have been fantastic to work with from the get-go. They patiently walked us through the entire process step by step, making sure that all our questions and concerns were answered. They took the time to get to know our family and understood our needs very well, including our parents who had very specific asks!
Every step of the way they made sure that we were comfortable with our decisions and supported us with their attention to details and years of experience.
Needless to say, Judith and Bruce have quickly become good friends of the family and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a full service and stress free real estate experience!
~ Jason Yu & family
Judith and Bruce – we would like to thank the two of you for helping my parents with the biggest transition of their lives. Your hard work, commitment and dedication to finding my parents the right condo that best suited their life style was your top priority. Your patience, kindness and honesty gave us peace of mind and a sense of trust knowing you always had our parents best interest in mind.
We have all been blown away and sincerely touched with your personable approach that is genuine, caring and supportive – not to mention the best customer service that we’ve ever encountered in any industry! Even after the deal was closed both you both continued to extend your support during late hours of the night to ensure my parents were settled with their condo purchase.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and wish you and your beautiful family good health and happiness in the years to come. We are so fortunate to have met the two of you and we look forward to working with you in the near future.
~ Angie, Peter & Maria Stavropoulos
I decided it was time to sell the house I had lived in for 41 years. It was a difficult decision but I knew it was time to let another family enjoy my home. Over the years I had gone to open houses in the Henry Farm community and had always been impressed with Judith Fairn’s professionalism and geniality. I knew I wanted Judith as my realtor.
Although the house was generally in good shape, Judith knew that it would benefit from some minor repairs, upgrades and staging. Judith and Bruce worked many long hours to prepare the house for the market, often working until midnight. They spent many hours removing stubborn wallpaper, painting, removing old carpet, installing new lighting, and much more which really made the house look really appealing to buyers.
Judith held open houses which were well attended. She was not just interested in selling the house but wanted to get me the best price possible. The house sold for what I consider the best possible price and I was very happy. Judith is a very strong negotiator and truly wants the best for her clients!
I really enjoyed my time with Judith and Bruce and was sorry to see it end. I highly recommend choosing Judith and Bruce to be your realtors. They were highly professional in their tasks, but we also established a friendship that will last.
~ Ellen Magnin
My partner and I are so impressed and thankful to have had Judith and Bruce as our realtors in the recent sale of our home. Judith’s knowledge and experience in our community was exceptional, allowing her to communicate a comprehensive valuation to potential buyers and their agents.
For us, Judith was wonderful and a pleasure to work with! She provided detailed advice as needed, but always left the decision in our hands. We always felt confident in her abilities and trusted her honest approach. She was available via multiple communication channels, including when we were out of the country and in a different time zone.
Judith went over and above our expectations, and we can’t imagine having a better realtor!
~ Donna & Bruce
Judith made our experience as first time renters in the city seamless, showing us several lovely spaces that went above and beyond our requirements. She made touring apartments easy and accessible, guiding us the entire way.
Judith was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, going out of her way to help us in all aspects of the search process. We could not be happier with our new home – and it is all thanks to Judith!
~ Mackenzie & Heather
While many agents promise first class quality service, Judith Fairn consistently over-delivers on her promise! There are no compromises or shortcuts in anything she does.
Judith is the most dedicated, experienced, and trustworthy real estate professional we have worked with in the buying and selling of a handful of properties over the years.
On the recent sale of our Henry Farm home, we partnered with Judith after interviewing several agents. Judith came out on top in the interview process and continued to excel throughout the entire sales process. Her guaranteed daily update and responsiveness are just two examples of her flawless professionalism.
Judith is passionate about what she does and truly cares about her clients! She pulled out all stops to deliver the best possible result for the sale of our home. Her knowledge of the market and strong negotiation skills resulted in an over-asking sale price on our home.
We have and will continue to highly recommend Judith
~ Patti & Robin H.
I had met Judith Fairn a few years ago in my neighbourhood. She has been an exceptional agent to my neighbours, with a glowing reputation and sales record. I knew that when the time came for me to need a real estate agent, I would look no further! Was I right!!
Judith is, first and foremost, a wonderful human being. She is so considerate, respectful, and thoughtful throughout the entire process, providing guidance and are available 24/7 to answer any questions.
Judith has a “can-do” attitude, and she uses sales techniques that will yield the top dollar ….. always with a smile and calm assurance. Judith never pushed, never rushed, and never gave up until I was satisfied!
We ended up selling in only 1 week with a phenomenal over-asking price! Judith is truly a class act …. and someone I can honestly call a friend.
Judith, you turned a stressful process into a very pleasant, stress-free experience. I will be forever grateful!
~ Katherine B. – May 2021
One of the best decisions I have ever made was to retain Judith Fairn of Ecko Jay Realty to act as my realtor for the sale of my house and subsequent purchase of a condominium. I hardly know where to start with the superlatives I have to say about Judith, providing her clients with the utmost in service and outcomes.
Judith’s professionalism is unsurpassed! She met with me soon after I contacted her, listened to my goals and formulated with me a cohesive plan of action. She worked diligently to research my neighbourhood and to do a thorough market analysis to list my home competitively and to obtain for me the best price. The portfolio they created regarding my home showed it off to its maximum effect. The photos they prepared were gorgeous and they marketed my home in such a way as to create a tremendous amount of interest for the property prior to the showings. And they did all this while scrupulously following Covid protocols and making me feel safe.
Judith truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to meet their needs. But it’s not just on the personal level they excel. Their expertise in their field really shines when it comes down to performance and their ability to close the deal to your advantage. Judith is a highly skilled negotiator who formulated a clear game plan to get me the best price possible for my home sale and my condo purchase. And she executed both negotiations perfectly, selling my home after just 2 1/2 days on the market for over asking and once this had closed immediately putting in an offer of purchase on a condominium I really wanted and getting it for me for under asking price. Who could ask for a better outcome!
It has been such a pleasure working with Judith, and I highly recommend her to anyone!
~ P. Sherman – March 2021
Judith Fairn was our support in the recent sale of our Henry Farm home. From our first meeting with Judith 3 years prior to our decision to sell, it was clear that she would be the one to navigate the sale when the time came. Her demeanour, knowledge, professionalism and kindness made it obvious, providing us with valuable information on our neighbourhood and the market in general.
At no time did we feel any pressure from Judith – we only ever felt unconditional support. When the time came to list, Judith’s approach to getting us on the market was efficient, calm, gracious, intuitive, thorough, and extremely helpful. No detail was overlooked. Intricacies were well covered and clearly explained. No question was too small, and no task was too big. It was abundantly clear that our desires being met, while our comfort was maintained, were the absolute priorities.
Yes, Judith worked for us to sell our house. But far more than that, Judith worked with us. We could not possibly have been treated better. I don’t know how the entire process could have gone any better!
My only regret is that we sold during the pandemic – which means I couldn’t embrace these wonderful people, and share a celebratory glass of champagne. Buying or selling a house? You owe it to yourself to meet with Judith Fairn!
~ Lawrie & Matthew V. – March 2021
We have bought and sold about a dozen homes over the past 30 years and we have worked with many different agents. We recently used Judith Fairn for the sale of two of our properties. Without question, Judith has been the best real estate agent with whom we have ever worked with!
Not only does Judith bring an outstanding level of professionalism and attention to detail to the job, she also cares about her clients. We put our trust in Judith. Her advice helped us prepare both properties so that they showed well. She then also handled the negotiations so that we maximized the selling price.
We have recommended Judith to several other people without hesitation. Your home is your biggest purchase and asset, and with Judith working for you, you feel you are in good hands. If, and when, we move again, we will definitely be calling Judith Fairn!
~ Kelly and Bill Hutchison – January 2021
We paired up with Judith to search for the “perfect” home for our family after we sold our home with Ecko Jay Realty. Judith’s knowledge, kindness and dedication were evident from the start and she immediately made us feel as though we were her #1 priority. She provided advice with utmost professionalism and honesty, and her patience was unparalleled! Judith knew our “home wish list” and held it close to her, many times knowing our reactions even before we voiced them!
Even in the midst of a challenging pandemic and feelings of uncertainty, Judith’s encouragement remained strong. Having finally just found our “perfect” home, we undoubtedly could not have done it without her, nor would we have wanted to.
Thank you Judith for your hard work and unwavering support in this journey. Now we begin the next one and we’re so happy to have you as friends to share it with us!
~ Popi & Peter A.
Judith – we can’t stop talking about you and how you helped us purchase our beautiful new home. Judith, you are such an amazing real estate agent, and very professional and passionate. It was our pleasure to get to know you and work with you. We will definitely refer you to all of our family and friends!
~ Sanaz and Amir H.
I met Judith a few years ago at an open house in the neighbourhood and found her approachable and not pushy, and very professional. When I decided to sell, I interviewed her and was very impressed with her drive, balanced with a personal touch during an emotional time.
Throughout the process, Judith was responsive, took care of the details, provided sound advice, and did more than what I expected. In the end, I sold my property and got what I wanted, and also found a new home to build a new future from.
Thank you, Judith – for taking such good care of me.
~ Deborah L.
When it came time to sell my home in Bayview Village area, I interviewed a few real estate agents. I had met Judith Fairn, from Ecko Jay Realty, at an open house I had attended and found her personality to be refreshing and honest. I made the decision to go with Judith for both the sale of my home and the purchase of my new one.
Judith was fantastic! She worked tirelessly on helping me find the perfect new home for me and my family. Judith advised me shrewdly and honestly, and was amazing at negotiating the right home at the right price for me. But where Judith really shined was in the selling of my home. Judith helped me get my home ready to go on the market, she was always available when I had any questions, and she worked so hard to get me a sale on my home with both the right timing and price.
Judith was very realistic, but she was also focused on fulfilling my expectations. Judith is both an amazing person and real estate agent! She is with you through the listing and the sale of your property. But more importantly, Judith is also there afterwards making sure you have everything you need for a good move too.
Judith is so helpful and caring, and I really could not have made a better choice in real estate agent. I highly recommend Judith for the job!!
~ Dr. R. Braga-Mele, MD
My fiancee and I were introduced to Judith by my brother – Judith had recently helped my brother sell his house and she did a great job for him. I never met an agent who is so responsible, professional and hardworking as Judith. We met several times to discuss the sale plan, Judith worked very hard and helped so much on my house in preparing for the sale including backyard cleaning, house decorating and even helped us with painting of walls.
We are so grateful that we got Judith as our real estate agent! She managed the sale our house within our timeline and got us a sale price in a tough market that both my fiancee and I were totally satisfied with. I would strongly recommend Judith if you are looking for a professional real estate agent!
~ Simon H.
Dear Judith – I want to thank you both for helping me in my downsizing journey. We viewed many condos and based on your knowledge, you advised me to walk away from a few that would have been bad decisions. Finally that perfect one came up just after Christmas, but I hadn’t yet put my Henry Farm house on the market!
I took the uneasy decision to buy first and then left the rest to your professional, caring, honest and hard working approach to real estate that I have not experienced before. You helped me get my house ready for sale, produced excellent colour brochures, added some great touches to my home and held my hand when I became stressful. I shouldn’t have worried though as you sold my home within 13 days of listing for a fair market price and the closing date I needed for the new condo.
I would not hesitate to recommend you both to others as a team that provides very high quality sales ability with a very caring approach to your clients! I cannot thank you enough for the hard work you did to achieve the results that were required in such a short time frame and in a market that traditionally is seen to be slow for house sales.
All the best to you,
~ Mary Lou W.
Judith helped my wife and I in the process of selling and buying our home in a very professional manner and always had a very positive attitude. When selling our hone, Judith really surpassed our expectations and took the necessary steps at the right time. In the same way, for buying our new house, Judith presented us with the different options and areas she had information on. Even after moving to the new home, Judith tirelessly helped us get information from the previous owner.
Judith is very committed and driven, and we would highly recommend her as your real estate advisor!
~ Felipe & Juliana
Dear Judith – I would like to say a big “Thank You” for your professionalism, dedication and efficiency in helping us sell my Aunt’s condo. My brother decided to go with Judith and the Ecko Jay team as he sold his house with them before — and I for one was super impressed by Judith. She kept every appointment she made, was always on time and kept us in the loop in every stage of the selling process. This was especially important to me as I have never sold property before. It was difficult on paper as there were technically three owners on the deed and each one of us were not present at some point or another – however, Judith managed it all!
Judith arranged the showing and assured us that the photos she would take of the condo were of professional quality. I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant as I thought the condo was just in average condition. When she showed me the photos and her layout of the condo, I was shocked. It was one word – amazing!
The condo listed for less than a week, we got numerous offers, one of which was substantially over in price from what I had in mind and then it was sold. Thank you again Judith for helping us get through a chaotic time for the family.
I would highly recommend the Ecko Jay team for any real estate dealings – and a personal “Thank You” to Judith!!
~ D. Bai & Family
Judith – A BIG THANK YOU to you, for all you have done big and small all the way which yielded great results and made our buying and selling a pleasant experience! It has been such a pleasant experience working with you, for both the purchase of our new house and sale of our present house.
It was indeed an interesting and exciting evening! You again demonstrated your superb communications skills and well preparation in ultimately driving an amazing outcome that I would not have imagined that it would be possible. You did set the record both in terms of price and in terms of days in market. Amazing!
We will stay in touch and will contact you in the future when we need a realtor and refer you should any of our friends are looking for a great realtor.
Judith, you are the best! Thank you very much! We greatly appreciate your assistance!
~ A. Hui
Judith Fairn was a “breath of fresh air” in the preparation and navigation of selling our home. As you may know, or soon will find out, it can be stressful. From the list of agents which we interviewed – Judith was our choice. We are so lucky to have had her as our agent. Judith is a quality individual; who also happens to be a great Real Estate agent!
Judith understood that (for us) this was the sale of our ”home” and not simply the selling of a house. She was understanding and helpful when it came time to make certain decisions. She helped make the preparation and selling process less stressful.
Judith was prepared, she understood the market and she could articulate the process clearly (contracts, legal stuff, etc.). Judith was extremely attentive to our wishes, communicated clearly and was punctual for every meeting. We also benefited by virtue of Judith’s team and her experience (i.e. staging, photographer, home inspection, etc.).
We are very comfortable and happy to extend this testimonial, as the quality of service and professionalism Judith provides is excellent!
~ B & K Akeson
Thank you so much for helping us to buy our lovely house. We’ve moved into the house for about one month, everything is so well maintained and we are so in love with the house. And thanks again for the lovely cake and card and the beautiful flowers – we feel very warm and touched. Thank you so much!
My first impression of you is “responsible” and “dedicated”. I remember receiving your first call at around 10 pm when I was about to take a sleep, I think it was because the call and the first impression we decided to appoint you as our representative. Because you are very dedicated person!
I feel I was treated in a very responsible way which makes me feel very safe. Whenever I had questions and reached to you, you just helped me to get a better solution. This is quite important as we are new to the city and buying the house… Thanks for the reminding email for the closing and arranging us to meet with the sellers. All were impressed.
Again, we truly love the house you helped us to buy and we thank you so much.
~ L. Yang
First of all Thank You for helping us find the perfect home!
We enjoyed searching homes with you. The time you took out of your busy weekend schedule (both family and work) to show us so many homes was unbelievable! Your insightfulness, breath of knowledge and positive outlook made the home hunting process so much easier and quite enjoyable.
Thank you for your patience and perseverance as you listened to our issues and concerns, answering all our questions and providing us the much needed advice.
The excellent service, frequent communication, dependability and your caring nature made you both a unique person and real estate agent. It was wonderful experience working with you during such trying times in today’s hot real estate market.
~ Ash and Neha
Judith is simply the best realtor we have ever met!
We are a busy working couple with two young children who are familiar with the process of buying and selling houses. Although we spent more than a year in online research and visiting open houses, we had not made up our mind to hire an agent until we met Judith.
From Day 1, Judith showed her excellent customer service. She consistently lives up to her high standard as a true professional realtor who put our goals as her #1 priority. Judith offered us timely market information, assessed each property against our needs, being flexible for scheduling and guided us step by step through those at times emotional offer nights.
We are impressed with the positive energy she instilled no matter the situation and kept us confident. In a short period of time, we did it – getting the house in the neighbourhood we have been dreaming of!
Judith’s work ethics and top-notch customer service have earned our trust to hire her to sell our existing home. In addition to a very comprehensive and strategic marketing plan, she offered sharp staging advice and home décor that bought out the best of our home. The results? Stunning photos on a dedicated website, MLS and high quality feature sheet and detailed highlight sheet. In terms of quality and attention to details, Judith’s work and her brokerage Ecko Jay Realty are second to none!
Judith truly cares about us and works hard and smart to get the best possible price of our house. She monitored the activities in the neighbourhood and had timely discussions with us on strategies. She is always respectful of our decisions and ensured we are well informed before making any moves. On the offer night, Judith showcased her exceptional communications and negotiation skills that made a difference in a record breaking sale (sold for the highest price of a similar house in our neighbourhood by a wide margin in just 2.5 days!)
When the potential buyers and their agents are also happy with Judith’s responsiveness, well preparedness and always being courteous yet assuring, everyone feels comfortable, which leads to results beyond expectations.
Thank you Judith – for all the hard work that brought the huge successes for us and for making the process go so smoothly and efficiently!
We highly recommend Judith to anyone looking for top-quality service, great results and the best buying or selling experience!
~ Alex and Irene
I just wanted to say how much we appreciated all you did for us in finding the right home. Your patience and never ending positive attitude greatly helped to make a daunting task seem almost easy.
When we thought we would never find a home that would meet our complex needs, you kept us going, promising that you would find what we needed, and you did! I am not sure how many realtors would be as tenacious, cooperative, and accommodating as you were throughout the whole process.
Thank you so much for your kind, considerate, and extremely professional approach. You are like a great friend coming to the rescue to provide all the right supports, with the added benefit of your professional and legal insight. I hope we keep in touch. It was certainly a pleasure working with you!
~ Suzanne J.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a few words about our realtor, Judith Fairn.
We are the Magees of 11 Farmview Crescent. Our father, Don Magee, was the president of one of the largest real estate companies in Toronto during the 60’s and 70’s. He supervised the building of our home here about 51 years ago. We kept our home until it was sold in September 2016, well above asking price, due in a major part to Judith.
After being raised in a family whose success revolved around the real estate business, and having bought and sold multiple homes all over Canada and the USA, we can say with full conviction that we have never met a realtor that comes close to the standard set by Judith Fairn – whether you are looking to buy or sell! We have had the privilege of experiencing both with Judith.
From advice on decorating, or renovating, to hands on physically digging in and helping out. Judith works with the best photographers to highlight your home for the ultra impact of the virtual tour online.
Judith will canvas tirelessly, hold open houses, contact hundreds of agents, and negotiate a great price well over asking. She leaves you wondering — how does this amazing woman do it ??!
God bless her! Judith is definitely “The Best”!!!
With appreciation and affection,
~ The Magee Family
We were very pleased to be able to engage you to represent us for our recent house selling. We have been enjoying the condo living very much. The experience with you was great, and we definitely were very happy with the outcome of your hard work.
~ Thomas T.
There are real-estate agents, and then there are super real-estate agents.
From the first time we walked in the door at Ecko Jay ‘s office and met Judith we felt very comfortable as she made us feel very secure in her ability to find us the right house in the right area.
From day one she showed us the kind of homes that we would be happy to live in. She didn’t just show us everything and hope we would bite. She asked our opinions and really targeted her search on our desires. She had this great attitude every single time we met and explained the positives of each home she showed us. Once we found the right house she went out of her way to make sure we were in the running.
Judith didn’t stop once we won the bidding. Usually it ends there as the agent has done their work. But she was always concerned and helped us right up to the closing date and even made calls to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. Her service went way beyond what was called for and without a doubt we would not consider anyone else if we were ever back in the market.
Judith will also be first on the list at our house warming party!
I would highly recommend Judith to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home.
~ Anita and Coleman Y.
I am writing to tell you just how much I appreciated your help with the recent purchase of my house.
You were an absolute pleasure to work with! Your professionalism and dedication surpassed my expectations. You handled the many complicated and difficult issues with incredible charm, ensuring the best possible outcome.
I am truly grateful that you took on my transaction even though it was far outside your standard area of coverage. Throughout the transaction you continuously showed how your sincerity and devotion can make even a complex deal successful.
You are definitely the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Should l ever need to buy or sell again, I will definitely give you a call.
Thanks so much again!
~ George J.
I wanted to express my sincerest thanks to you for the outstanding job of facilitating the sale of my parent’s home. As Executor to their Estate, your assistance was very much appreciated and you never made anything seem like it was work. The level of warmth, kindness, and dedication that you exuded, is rarely seen in this industry. I have bought and sold numerous houses over the years and this was the very first time that I actually had to sell a “home”.
Your compassion during the sale of the home that had been in our family for over 53 years was greatly appreciated. You worked tirelessly and went above and beyond anything that I could have expected, especially with everything you did to help me to reconcile the challenges of not living in the Toronto area.
I knew the day that I met you at an Open House in May, that you would be a great fit to handle this sensitive transaction as we passed our family home into the hands of another family. You represented us perfectly throughout the entire process. The house preparation, the negotiations and then the post-offer wrap-up went seamlessly due to your attention to detail.
I can’t thank you enough and I will not hesitate in using Ecko Jay Realty and specifically you, for any future real estate transactions.
~ Cheryl A.
I would first like to thank Judith for everything during the sale of my house. Judith was very well prepared and knowledgeable with the area when I was looking for an agent to sell my house. Judith was very accessible from the start to finish of sale of my house and still makes sure she reaches out to me afterwards.
This being my first home sale, Judith was very patient and very helpful with me throughout the entire process. She’s always prompt with answering any of my questions and/or concerns. If she didn’t have the answer, she was sure to find out.
Judith exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend Judith with any and all your real estate needs.
~ H. Tse
Judith, you are a professional and as I said I put my faith in you because Ecko told me to do so and our family respects his views. It was a true pleasure to work with you and the Ecko Jay team – we are only as strong as our team. As I said, Richard has very high standards and you met them. My father is no different and was very pleased and went off to Church this morning to give thanks. For me I would work with you again. You are a good listener and you picked up on the values that I hold for our family home. I would and will definitely recommend you to others. I was impressed that you came back late last night and put the SOLD OVER ASKING sign up! Continued success!
~ Patricia E.
As a first time home buyer who was trying to break into the real estate market, I needed a lot of help … and Judith really came through for me. Not only did she answer all my questions, emails, scoured listings and assembled comparables, almost on a daily basis with sincere professionalism, she also went above and beyond and checked out open houses and prospective properties on my behalf. Judith helped me to work out what my offer should be and certainly looked after my best interests in negotiations. And it worked! I got the place I was looking for at a price I could afford. On the whole, Judith deserves an immense amount of credit for making it a smooth venture given the challenging circumstances – and I would most certainly recommend Judith to family, friends and neighbours. Best of all, she is fun to work with!
~ Logan E.,
BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS! Judith, you and your team surpassed everything we had expected and hoped for. You explained everything to us in our first meeting and remained in contact as we went through the process of selling our home. You took the pressure away from us with your suggestions and knowledge. We all knew exactly what to expect – you made the process so much easier. I am particularly impressed by how you marketed our home, the quality of the brochures, photos and care and consideration over the MLS listing was superior. You treated us like a $5 million dollar home. We actually had other agents approach us and tell us what a great marketing job you did. Well the proof is in, if not for the expertise of you and the Ecko Jay team we would not have received an unbelievable 24% over asking price! Far exceeding our expectations. We will gladly and enthusiastically recommend you to anyone and everyone. We couldn’t be happier!
~ Lisa D.
