When we first started looking for a property we were a small family looking to find a bigger place. We met Thomas through a friend and when looking for our first place Thomas was very informative and guided us step by step as new homeowners. Having small kids made it hard for us to schedule viewings but Thomas was very accommodating to our schedule. After a couple of searches it didn't take long before we came to a decision and now we're homeowners! Thanks to Thomas' knowledge and professionalism we found a place in this crazy market. I would highly recommend Thomas to any friends looking to purchase a home. Thanks again Thomas!

I found Kayla's Advertisement online a couple years ago.  We were new to the country at the time, my family and I were looking for a particular home with a budget in mind which was not easy to find.  Kayla was very patient with us and was quick to respond to all of my questions. We saw houses aggressively to make sure that we would beat the crowd and put our offers in first as it was a competitive market.  We not only found an agent, we found a friend in the business that we would recommend to anyone and use again when we are ready.

I first found Kayla on an advertisement when I was looking for my first place in downtown Toronto. I was new to the process but Kayla walked me through it every step of the way and was very patient with me. She showed me all of my options within my criteria and had great knowledge of each building we toured. She made my first experience an enjoyable one. After a year at my place, my boyfriend and I decided to look for a place together and there was no doubt in my mind who to call. Kayla went above and beyond to find us a place we now call home. She was always accommodating and made the condo hunt a breeze. I will recommend Kayla to any of my friends!

Kayla is not only intuitive, but very efficient, business and detail oriented. Her services not only included helping me navigate through the purchase of a home, but assisting me with the details of what to look for in the contract that would benefit me; she also was kind enough to refer me to the right lawyer t aid in the perusal of my contract for purchase of sale. I am very grateful to Kayla and will definitely use her expertise in future real estate needs.

Kayla is a fantastic realtor. She is knowledgeable about the market and is attentive to details (which I truly appreciate). When choosing my unit, I had A LOT of questions about the process, financing and future expectations of property ownership. She was able to answer them all as well as provide me the direction to acquire more information for my own research. She is patient and courteous. I am looking forward to doing business with her in the future. I would definitely recommend her.

My partner and I were new to the Toronto area and Thomas helped us navigate the fast paced and ever changing apartment market here. We ended up getting the apartment we wanted in the neighborhood we wanted thanks to him. Would recommend!

Kayla helped me with my first downtown rental, and again when I when I bought my first condo. She was patient, friendly, and professional throughout both processes, and was dedicated to finding me the best home. I will definitely be working with Kayla again when I decide to buy a house, and would recommend Dam Homes to anyone else looking to find a home in Toronto!

I was referred to Dam homes by a friend and I was very glad that I availed myself of their services. Kayla and Thomas are very professional and they were able to explain parts of the process that I was unfamiliar with. They took the time to learn what I was looking for in a home and selected ideal options for viewings. I am now settled into my new home and the Dams have taken the time to follow up with me to ensure all is well and answer any additional questions. I will be recommending their services to my friends and colleagues.

Thomas was incredibly helpful in helping my roommate and myself find our first downtown Toronto apartment. He is very knowledgeable and professional, and was able to answer all of our questions and educate us on the overall process of renting. He was also very adaptable to our changing criteria. We would likely not have been able to find our perfect apartment without Thomas!

Kayla and Thomas were very knowledgeable when assisting me in my first condo purchase. Initially, I had a lot of questions as I was new to the concept of purchasing real estate but they were very patient and informative. I am still waiting for my condo to be built, but I am confident they will continue to provide valuable information as I inch closer to owning my first property. I highly recommend their services if you are looking for patient and efficient agents.

Thomas is a great and knowledgeable real estate agent. We were first time home buyers and he helped us a lot with understanding the process from start to finish. Thomas gave us information that not even the builder (or anyone else around us) filled us in on. One thing that sets Thomas a part from the majority of people we consulted is that he made himself readily available whenever we needed him and when he was unfamiliar with something we asked, he made it his business to find the answer asap. If you're looking to sell or buy, Thomas Dam is your guy!

While searching for my investment property I came across the Dam teams website listing, and now they are my agents of choice. They were very informative in my decision-making process and having both Thomas and Kayla was very valuable when booking showings and strategizing. I am very happy with their services and hope anyone considering them gives them a shot. It's hard to find kind, courteous and knowledgeable agents in the sea of agents so I had to share my experience.

I knew I always wanted a home but had no plans or knowledge how to do it. Through general conversation w/ Kayla and her being good at what she does, she gave me the push and guidance to get me financially set to buy my first home. Another opportunity fell on her lap where she helped me to invest in a pre-construction investment to rent out. Once that's done building there is no other I would entrust in to help me find a good tenant. If you need someone to help you from the beginning to the end she will get the job done.

Thomas and Kayla was referred to us by a friend and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. My partner and I were very particular in our search and both Thomas and Kayla were very quick and attentive to our needs, not only did they send us a lot of listings they also provided their professional insights on why they would choose a particular home. We've found our home but when we are ready for our next we will definitely be giving them a call. Thanks Thomas and Kayla!

I have known Kayla and Thomas Dam for many years and am an investor with multiple properties. I have used Dam Homes for things like buying/selling investment properties as well as finding tenants in the past, and will continue to do so in the future as needed. They are well informed, thorough, extremely professional and always a pleasure to work with.

It was a bit of a struggle but I appreciate their continual support and strategics in finally finding a place.

Kayla and Thomas are without a doubt one of the best realtor teams in the GTA. We purchased our first home with ease thanks to them and they did not hesitate to fight for us and make sure we got what we were looking for. They are very knowledgeable about the industry through both extensive research and experience. Kayla and Thomas bring the best components of teamwork to the table when working for you and we could not be happier with the service that they provided for us.Thank you,Chris and Alysia

About Markham Real Estate

It’s been quite a rollercoaster ride in the year of 2017. We’ve seen some prices soar to record highs and then climb right back down after the fear of buyers kicked in because of the competitive market. Buyers got in the spring market without realizing what was going on and played aggressively to secure something before it soared even higher. After the riot of prices, buyers decided to hold back fearing that they would be paying too much for something that might decline in price after the buzz.
A few important factors came into play last year, one being the (FHP) Fair Housing Plan. The government’s plans to implement this new 15% tax rule to non- resident buyers did indeed slow down the market when it came to the purchase of homes. This affected the York Region in Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan etc as a high number of buyers came from the Asian community. Also with the volatile market this left foreign buyers unsure although they were not a high percentage of the majority of buyers.
