"Whether you are buying or selling your home, Roland Hack is the best there is! We have had the pleasure of working with Roland on the purchase of a home and many years later, the sale of that same home. Roland is extremely knowledgeable and his expertise far surpass your standard agent. He has a keen eye for detail and will provide guidance and insight with regards to preparing your home for sale, evaluating a home's build, the eventual list price and handling offers. We took all the advice he could give us and in turn, our home sold in under 7-days and at the price we wanted. Unexpected things can pop up when you are selling or buying a home - and for us, it was essential that we had somebody on our side who was knowledgeable, a skilled negotiator and would provide guidance while representing us with dignity and class. Roland is a true professional and in our opinion, the best in his field." qoute

"I was referred to Roland through another family member who has used him several times. I was skeptical about using an agent as I have always sold my homes privately before, but had a difficult property to sell, and was assured he was the right agent for the job. Roland previewed the property and gave me his honest opinion on where we should be in the market and by the offers we received his market position was exactly correct. Roland's best interest is that of his client; this too was proven over and over by ridiculous offers we were receiving based on the appearance of the property. Roland knew, and was confident this property had value and he could prove that to anyone who called him about it. In working with Roland through this, he has definitely changed my opinion on agents and would definitely call upon him for my next sale or purchase!" qoute

I would recommend Roland Hack to anyone looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent and skilled negotiator. Roland sold our house in one week for a price we were very happy with and we only paid 1% commission. We received a lot of value for what we paid in commission, as Roland provided services equivalent to those agents who would have charged more than double". There is no catch here, Roland was there for us every step of the way—he is a true professional. qoute

I would like to state how our family was impressed with the work done through Roland on our house. He succeeded, with amazing results, in bringing a previously neglected house up to the most modern standards, and all within a tight budget. He always undertook suggested the most effective way of fixing, renovating and/or fashioning the house and made sure that things got done on budget. Our numerous house related questions and concerns were always clearly answered, thanks to his abundant working knowledge of houses and of real estate, fully using his gifts and talents, which included his wonderful ability to also take photographs of the interior and exterior of houses, that he works on. He did everything with great drive and flexibility, and he could always easily be reached whenever needed. We could not be happier with the end result that he had promised us; it was even far greater than what we had hoped for! Roland worked relentlessly throughout the project, with integrity and in a dedicated manner, which made it a great pleasure to work with him all along. If you have any questions, I will be happy to respond. Simply ask Roland to pass you my number. qoute

I listed my property on 2 different occasions with other agents for $450,000 and my property did not sell. When my listing ran out, I called Roland on the Thanks giving weekend, he answered his cell phone and we made an appointment to list my house. Roland made suggestions to make it more saleable and in two weeks after applying his recommendations, my property sold for $505,000, that is 12% over the original list price! Roland shares his expert and affordable trades. More importantly, Roland provided me with exact steps to getting my home tweaked to properly appeal to buyers so that I could sell for the most. Roland will be selling my next home and I look forward to working with him. The value he brings to the table is so much greater than what he charges. You can place all of our trust in Roland - I have and I am grateful that I did. Call him today! qoute

This is the third time we've used Roland for moving, and once again we were more than pleased with service delivery. As customers we must have challenged Roland's patience many times as we weren't sure of where we wanted to move, when we wanted to move or what type of housing we were looking for. After 5 months (yes 5!) of road trips, coffee discussions and showings galore, Roland was able to help us buy a home that at first seemed like it would be out of our reach due to a rigid vendors position. We knew we were serious about the home and sent in an offer but negotiations became very challenging with the vendor and Roland advised us to walk away. Despite my husband and I being completely discouraged that the house would slip away during this very active market we returned to the table after 3 weeks. Roland had the confidence and professional approach that not only got the negotiations restarted, but successfully completed to everyone's satisfaction. And while this was going on, he sold our house in 24 hours! We would highly recommend Roland for anyone looking for a real estate agent that knows the market, housing values and housing potential. He is a real estate agent that will always have his clients best interests in mind. qoute

When we decided to sell our house we used Roland Hack. It was a difficult time in our lives. We had no idea as to what we wanted or where we wanted to go. Roland had the patience of a Saint and helped us non-stop until we found what we wanted. He was always on call. 5 calls a day were always meet with a smile. I would highly recommend Roland - not only does he know his stuff, he is one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I would not hesitate to use Roland again, and will very soon. A very happy client. qoute

You are a very knowledgeable real estate agent and skilled negotiator. I am very pleased on how fast you sold my house at the price that I was looking for. Your passion and dedication to real estate was evident from start to finish. If anyone is in the market for the best real estate agent, Roland is the way to go. qoute

Let me put it this way; My home was listed with another agent for just over a month without one single offer - basically, the service I got sucked. A friend recommended Roland who took the bull by the horns and sold my home in 3 days. His knowledge, intelligence and proactive selling skills got the job done. I really don't know what else to say other than "thank you for saving the day!" qoute

To anyone wishing to sell a home, I definitely recommend ONLY Roland Hack, for the following reasons; * He is professional, extremely helpful, caring and easy to deal with. * Charging an unheard of commission of only 1%, yet with full MLS exposure! * Roland offers his expert guidance on setting an attractive selling price, including adjustments. *He will provide free advice on inexpensive home renos, to make the property "Shine". * Frequent contact , by phone and net, for your listing status. * Very flexible with documents; all of mine has been done over the internet! *Since my buyer was not represented by an agent, Roland composed the successful contract for BOTH sides, and was accepted by my lawyer ! I don't know if any other agent would do that . Much more work for Roland, but with NO additional charge ! Roland Hack may be in business for himself, but dealing with him has made me feel that he was working ONLY for me ! Thank you, Roland ! qoute

After interviewing three real estate agents who were not interested in anything except my signature on a contract, I found Roland. Roland's first act was to go through the unit and outline the repairs that needed to be done. This was what I was asking the others to do. Roland's fees were far below the others. He provided the repairers and went with them to instruct what he wanted done. He remained involved until it was completed. During the process Roland was constantly aware it was my money that was being spent. My home was sold before the sign went up through his contacts. I certainly do recommend Roland Hack. qoute

Having worked with numerous real estate agents in the past, my wife and I dreaded the prospect of employing yet another. The baked cookie incense would be lit and 3% of our investment gone. Roland however, provided a refreshing experience in the sale/purchase of our new home. He was aggressive without being pushy, and was always willing to make time to discuss or remedy any questions or issues we had with our home. Most importantly, and what I found to be most unique about our experience with Roland was his vast and functional knowledge of home improvement. He understands what, if anything, needed repair, how to do it, and how to showcase the finer qualities of one's home. All told, Roland made the experience a very enjoyable one for us and there is no doubt in our minds that we would use his services in future should we need to sell/purchase in future. qoute

Just wanted to say thank you for everything. Throughout the entire process, you have been friendly and professional. You were always there to provide guidance and support. We appreciate that you have worked tirelessly to sell our house. With five different written offers on our property, you negotiated each one with all your efforts until it was sold. You took the time to explain everything and you were always available to answer our questions. You have always been very kind and patient when responding to our inquiries. Can't thank you enough! qoute

Roland Hack is an outstanding real estate agent. It was a pleasure to work with him in arranging the sale of my home. He is astute and outstandingly knowledgeable in today's property market values. In the vital process of preparing my home for sale, Roland's eye for its staging was superb. He saw issues that needed to be addressed, while conveying his suggestions with positivity and expertise. Thanks to Roland's suggestions, the incorporated changes gave me the market advantage. It benefitted me in the quick sale of my home. As well, Roland meticulously paid attention to every detail of the sale agreement, therefore making the purchaser comfortable with the value invested in my property. I have been very impressed with Roland's willingness to spend many hours with me in order to assess my needs and to show me homes that fit my requirements. I would highly recommend Roland Hack to any person looking for a real estate agent with professional integrity. qoute

I would like to thank Roland Hack for his genuine concern for resolving our doubts and fears which we had during our time of getting the house ready for the market. We choose his Package B. It provided all that we needed in order to achieve the outcome which we expected. We believe the staging was a beautiful work, along with all the other recommendations that Roland had, and implemented. Roland brought in, managed, and paid for all the trades to get our home to look it's best for selling. The great feeling about working with Roland is, the confidence he exudes. We felt his professionalism and his thorough knowledge about what makes a house sellable, attractive, and desirable, was key to our outcome. The proof of that is: we sold our house in one day and we got over the list price. On top of that he is a very patient human being and wants you to be happy. Roland truly does serve you and not the other way around. Thanks again Roland for helping us out. qoute

Roland has helped me buy and sell my home - twice. He did such a great job the first time that I knew I wanted to work with him again. Roland understood our "dream home wish list" - saving my husband and I time so we only looked at homes we'd be interested in. He thoroughly knows the real estate market and he's an excellent, top-notch negotiator. If you're looking to buy your next dream home and want to save time and money in the process, then give Roland a call. We highly recommend him! qoute

About two years we were searching for a specific type of house that would meet our family needs regarding our special needs son. Realizing there was nothing on the market that met our needs; we had no other alternative than to have the house built from scratch. We called Roland's flyer, and from there the process began. At first my wife and I were quite hesitant because we never did any thing like this before. But we started to get more comfortable as things progressed; Roland was very sensitive and understanding to our unique set of circumstances. He was not like a typical agent that just wants a quick commission. He was the one that found the perfect land size for us to build upon. I was impressed with his knowledge and expertise on how to build a home. Roland spent hours of his time helping us buy supplies for the house without taking a penny. He always wanted to make sure we were happy; and if there were problems he always took the time to listen and solve things. Roland has the highest integrity and won't just tell you what you want to hear; for example, he won't take a listing if a property is grossly over priced. If you are looking for an agent you can trust and cares for your real estate needs than I highly recommend Roland Hack. He truly is a breath of fresh air. qoute

I and my wife have known Roland and worked with him for about 10 years. We sold and bought several homes with Roland, and each time Roland's expertise, experience, and versatility brought us an incredible value. We are very happy with Roland's services, and we will always recommend him to all our friends and anyone who needs help of an experienced real estate professional. On the personal level, I would like to thank Roland for his remarkable professional integrity. I bought my first house with Roland, and I remember how many times I was ready to proceed with an offer, but would be advised by Roland not to. I was almost getting mad with him at the time, as his reasons did not resonate with me. But I am glad I listened, because now, after owning several properties, I understand that he was truly looking after me (while he could have sold me any of those properties that I desired but that were not right for me), and I appreciate that. This trait remained unchanged through all my future dealings with Roland, and I appreciate that even more. qoute

We used Roland to sell our house in Oakville and buy a new house in the same area in 2012. It was really important to us to get the most we could from our sale and the best deal on a new purchase. Roland really understands the market and he helped us understand where our house fit within it. His method of determining market value is much more comprehensive than what I've seen from other agents. He was able to create a pricing strategy that got us what we needed on our sale. Roland also provided a very affordable commission plan while providing full service. We received excellent value for what we paid for. Because Roland is also involved in the building and renovation of properties, he understands better than most agents what to look for when buying a house. That and his keen negotiating skills helped us get our dream house BELOW list price. On top of his skills, he's just a great person to work with. We couldn't be happier with the results Roland delivered and highly recommend him. qoute

My wife and I would highly recommend Roland to negotiate hard and truly work for you to achieve the best price possible for your home. Roland was relentless and encouraged us to wait for the right offer, when the time came he structured a strong deal that closed firm in two days. His expertise in building and development projects came in very handy and helped us to understand the potential offers we could expect. Roland also provided us with the most competitive fee structure to list our house, we have bought and sold 4 properties in the past 6 years and Roland by far is the hardest working realtor I have dealt with. qoute

Roland did a fantastic job and I give him a 10 out of 10! He sold my house before the full listing on MLS! The secret keys to my success through Roland: #1 - LISTEN to Roland - When Roland comes to your house, have a pen and a pad of paper ready. He will walk through your house and instruct you on what needs to be done to maximize the value of your home. #2 - IMPLEMENT what Roland suggests - My wife and I took the next day off work and went room to room cleaning top to bottom (dusting, taking scuff marks off the wall (Magic eraser works!) vacuuming), taking personal pictures off the wall, moving furniture around and putting some furniture in storage/garage. Remember, he wants your house to show as best as possible so the extra work is worth it! Also, I had a professional carpet steam cleaner company come in for the final touch. NOTE - If you don't have the time, ability or you just don't want to because it seems overwhelming, choose his package B and he'll get it done for you! #3 - SOLD - Roland doesn't waste any time! We had showings within 24 hours of meeting him and one of those showings is the person who bought my house! I had an offer on the same day my house went up on MLS for EXACTLY what I wanted! Seriously, why go anywhere else? qoute

I have known Roland for the past 15 years or more on professional and personal levels. He was my support in 2000 when I decided to sell and purchase my next home, and again in 2010 when I sold and bought. I wanted to thank you for being such a good friend and for providing excellent tips and advice while selling and purchasing a home for me and my family. You were a true professional and your guidance and attention to details came at a time when my life was very stressful. The passion and dedication that you show for real estate was remarkable. I would recommend you to assisted friends, relatives or any one that is thinking of purchasing or selling a home. Just remember a good agent is very hard to find, and in Roland, you have an excellent agent. qoute

I was fortunate to have Roland Hack taking the lead on the sale of my home in June of 2012. Roland was an expert in giving me the best advice as to how to show the home, his photography skills were second to none and once the home was listed on mls it got a lot of attention. The concierge service with Sutton was terrific and very organized. With Roland�s expertise the house sold quickly. I would highly recommend Roland to assist you in the sale of your home. qoute

Dear Roland, I wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful support and resource for us during our move. Your professional guidance with personal attention to our needs helped to make a stressful move one of relative ease. As you'd mentioned downsizing was going to be a different type of move for us. And your suggestions on strategy, staging, and preparing our home to sell made all the difference and made it as easy as possible. You really helped. Your passion and dedication to real estate was evident from start to finish as you never seemed to tire of our relentless questions on market changes and location changes. We're so glad that you sold our home and helped us find our new house. No regrets at all! Thank you again and looking forward to doing business with you again! qoute

If you are in the market for the best real estate agent, Roland is the man! As a single mom, I was very careful on whom to trust with my hard earned money. Roland's practical commission structure ensured me that I would not be taken advantage of. I felt very confident in his sales skills and knowledge of the real estate market. His suggestions and advice on how to stage my home, ensured that I sold at a proper value. His eye in photography made it easier to present on the internet and my home sold within a month!! I was so thrilled that I asked Roland to help me find my new home. With Roland having knowledge of construction, he was able to guide me in the process. As it is a very emotional decision, sometimes you need professional input. His commission structure put the cherry on the cake, again. I have recommended Roland to all my friends and family members without hesitation. qoute
