If you’ve met me in person and heard my elevator pitch, I often like to say that I sell real estate “North of Bloomington” – also known colloquially (or co-local-y?) as the “N6”. I always stipulate that I don’t discriminate on the product I sell, and I have clients who like the way I analyze a deal, so I’ve been a little promiscuous lately, working on some development sites in The Beaches, Brampton and Sudbury currently.
The N6 stands for the North 6 (WE THE NORTH), and includes the following municipalities:
- East Gwillimbury
- Mt. Albert
- Holland Landing
- Keswick (North & South)
- Historic Lakeshore Communities
- Sutton & Jackson’s Point
- Pefferlaw & Virginia
- Baldwin & Belhaven
- King City
- Pottageville, Lloydtown, and a bunch of other rural communities I’m going to get an earful for missing (sorry)
Regardless of the promiscuity, the N6 is home, and it’ll always have a special place in my heart. It’s visible in my work in the area. I’m progressing on my statistical recall for napkin math with out-of-town developers who need the local touch. The reason I’m so in touch with the information in this area is that I analyze it on a monthly basis for my clients, who range from first-time homebuyers to developers with billion-dollar budgets. I am a data-driven real estate broker.
Because of the nature of the market right now, I’ve decided to start releasing my market reports to the public, for a few different reasons. My motivation is about 50% selfish, 50% selfless, and I have no reason to lie about that. Everything has to be win-win in this real estate. I’ll be as transparent as I can here, because the lack of transparency in this industry can be pretty sickening:
- Consistent, high-quality content helps me from an SEO perspective.
- Consistent, high-quality content helps me prove that I know what I’m doing.
- I am fed up with the misinformation I see about real estate.
- I feel compelled to help people who are making decisions with the wrong information by giving them the right information to make a decision in their best interest (it’s literally my fiduciary duty as a broker).
- I am competing daily with app-style “tech brokers” who run all of the same data through an algorithm to pump out a bunch of metrics that don’t really mean anything, but look modern and generate leads.
My goal is to distil a month’s worth of information at a time and present it in a local context on a relevant timeline with concise conclusions. I will not skew data. I will not tell you what you want to hear. I will tell you what is happening. I promise to tell it like it is. Sometimes my conclusions may be wrong. I will do my best not to make recommendations based on the conclusions.
If you’re curious as to whether or not I’m qualified to do this, let my work speak for itself. Below is an album of the infographics I use for my market reports. I’ll be compressing the report into 4 segments, analyzing 1-week at a time. I’ll also be releasing videos of my analysis on instagram focused on more personalized explanations, neighbourhood metrics, and anticipated trends. If reception is good, I may ramp up to multiple posts per week.
