We received a feedback survey for Bruce Tramley for the role he fulfilled as selling agent for our property at 2732 Fern Lane. I don't often complete surveys, but wanted to make sure you had our feedback about Bruce. I first met him when I purchased a property in 2013. He kept in touch with housing market updates and by just touching base occasionally. Bruce did this in such a way that it was not annoying or high pressure.
When I contacted Bruce again in 2016 I was feeling very anxious. I had a house (103 Granite Cove) that had been listed with another firm (xyz) and had been on the market for over a year. I didn't feel the 'xyz' agent was really doing anything to "sell" it. Once the listing was signed and the pictures were up, the 'xyz' agent did little else. When I put suggestions/questions to him, he (the xyz agent) sometimes didn't even get back to me. I listed with 'xyz' because I really like their website and thought the exposure would be good. Their lower commission fee was also attractive.
From the time I contacted Bruce in summer 2016, we have really come to trust his judgement, feel confident that he is working hard to help us achieve our goals of selling properties (Granite Cove, Bridges St. (my Mum's) and Fern Lane). His experience in the Halifax market, the contacts he has, his sense of the market, his creative ideas (staging, drone videos) and persistence (quite a few open houses) all reflect that he is the kind of professional agent you want handling your real estate needs. He is calm and respectful, recognizes potential issues and knows how to diffuse or address them.
We are happy for any of this to be shared with Bruce, or to use as you see fit.
