Why Should You Hire a Realtor When Buying?
Buying a home involves hours, days, and often weeks of methodical searching- or at least it does if you want to ensure you find the best home for you and your family.
WRX Property Group offers an experienced team of full-time realtors ready and able to take on this important task; our clients all have a personally-responsible realtor working for them for as long and as often as they need.
As a client with WRX Property Group, we will be on the clock for you every day – during standard work hours, as well as evenings and weekends. When a suitable property comes up, we will always let you know right away.
Why WRX Property Group?
WRX Property Group is based in Kitchener-Waterloo, and it is an area we know and love. We have considerable knowledge and insight into the Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph markets, we are well-networked in both the real estate world and the local community, and we are highly experienced in the increasingly vital online aspect of buying homes.
For our full-service team of realtors, every day holds opportunities for our clients that we will not let slip away. We work every day, and we are on-call 24/7.
We guarantee effective, friendly, comprehensive, and responsive customer service. One of the reasons we work so hard to keep up to date with trends in the local market and developments in the local community is so that we can pass this information on to our clients, and use this knowledge to provide advice and guidance based on your needs.
We believe that asking the right questions, and actively listening to and understanding your needs, is absolutely crucial. By knowing precisely what you’re looking for, we can do everything in our power to deliver, and find the right home, in the right place, at the right price, for you.
Experience and Knowledge
Beyond this, the WRX Property Group team is fluent in the wide range of legalities and conditions that have a bearing on the negotiation and purchasing process. Quite simply, with WRX Property Group working for you, this is something you won’t have to worry about.
We will protect your interests throughout the negotiation process, in order to ensure you get the best possible deal, with no unwelcome surprises. We will also take care of all pertinent legalities, including but not limited to conditions, disclosures, and warranties. Once again, we worry about this side of the process so you don’t have to.
How Much Does It Cost?
It is free for buyers to be represented by a realtor. The buyer agent’s fees are covered by the seller through what is known as ‘co-operating commission.’ This applies to nearly all real estate transactions throughout Canada (a small number of properties/sale types are not covered by this co-operating commission).
My husband and I got the privilege of working with both George and Mario when purchasing our first home! Both George and Mario were extremely quick at replying emails at anytime of the day and were extremely patient with us as first time buyers. Additionally, they have great insight about the current market and were very honest with how much each property was worth. Overall, we can really tell that they cared a lot about us and worked very hard to meet our needs. Highly recommend! - 10/28/2020
Gr4eat individuals whom will help you find the right house of your needs, they are also not as pushy as most realtors and I enjoyed working with them! Would definitely recommend. - 4/02/2019
We had a fantastic experience working with Mario from WRX Property Group. We worked together for several months looking for a new home. Mario is very knowledgeable about KW real estate and takes the time to get to know what his clients are looking for. He customized the search for us and would flag listings of interest right away. The guidance he provided during the offer period was extremely valuable and never pushy. Mario went above and beyond to help us get the home we wanted, would absolutely recommend! - 5/27/2019
Prompt, invaluable service & genuinely friendly yet professional demeanour where it mattered most is how I would rate WRX & especially George who made it happen ! I would be happy to recommend him in future! Thanks for everything George ( taking the stress out of buying)!! - 5/06/2020

How We Fight to Protect Your Interests as a Buyer
Through real-world experience, a strong educational background, and an ongoing commitment to research, we are extremely well-versed in the intricacies of the Waterloo Region real estate market and certain of our ability to protect your interests.
Additionally, we believe that it’s not enough for us to simply establish a firm basis of understanding and expertise: we are confident in our understanding of the varied laws, regulations, and strategies that make up real estate, but we also believe that there’s always more to learn.
The real estate market, and the policies and regulations surrounding it, is not static – it is always changing and evolving. Therefore, we are committed to continuously monitoring any and all developments, whether on a local, regional, or national level.
WRX Property Group is part of an exceptional brokerage firm: Cloud Realty Brokerage. We are proud to be a part of this prestigious brokerage firm, and we believe in its philosophy of cultivating local knowledge and emphasizing mutually beneficial transactions.
This philosophy is a facet of our customer service belief: that through local knowledge, we can ensure the best deal for you. Like Cloud Realty Brokerage, WRX Property Group values mutually beneficial transactions as opposed to just making sales.
Our Track Record
At WRX Property Group, we understand this region, and we are using this understanding to secure a large number of mutually beneficial transactions for our clients. In 2018, our team completed 47 transactions in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.
According to the Kitchener-Waterloo Association of Realtors (KWAR), there are approximately 1300 realtors in the region and approximately 7000 residential properties sold annually. With these figures, the average realtor in the area completes approximately 5.4 transactions per year, putting WRX Property Group well ahead of the curve.
We are highly experienced in every step of the home buying process, and we believe that our clients only stand to benefit from our expertise in this important decision. If you’d like to know more, please don’t hesitate to contact us– we’re always happy to help, however we can.
Sharing Our Knowledge
An offshoot of our continuous drive to deepen our understanding of the Kitchener-Waterloo market and community is the WRX Property Group blog. We cover a wide range of subjects, including everything from analyses of schools in the region to things to do around Kitchener-Waterloo (as well as the surrounding regions, including Cambridge and Guelph).
We also have several series that would be of significant interest to people looking to buy a home: our Monthly Market Reports take a close look at the raw numbers in the Kitchener-Waterloo market (including overall sales divided by quadrant, comparisons to sales numbers over the past decade, analysis of new governmental policies, and more).
Our Buyers section of articles delves into many of the options and considerations available for prospective buyers; for example, you can read up on two car garages and whether or not a home with a pool is right for you. We want to provide you with the data and analysis necessary to make an informed decision.
