Geoffrey Grace

Sales Representative
  • I am writing to describe the outstanding services that my wife and I received from Geoffrey Grace during the sale of our home. Like each sale ... and purchase, there were specific factors that were unique to our situation that created challenges. Most significantly, my wife lives with a disability. We also have a busy home with a young child. We dreaded the negative impact that ‘house showings’ might have on my wife’s health. We previously listed our home with another real estate agent, but for several reasons we took it off the market. It took months for my wife to physically recover. We were considering selling privately to try to maintain control over the interfering effects of having our house on the market. I also thought that we might save money on commissions by going with a private sale (as it turned out I was wrong about that). Needless to say that when Geoffrey Grace introduced himself, we needed considerable reassurance to go ahead with listing the property on MLS. Another challenge was that we wanted a 6 month closing. Geoffrey explained issues associated with timing in the market place and helped us to understand that waiting until closer to our move date was not necessarily the smartest strategy. Geoffrey outlined ways that we could all "Plan for Success." As a result we chose to have a house inspection completed prior to listing the property. Most importantly, Geoffrey listened respectfully to our concerns and assured us that at any time my wife could call him and he would protect her need to rest in the privacy of our home by re-scheduling appointments if her health started to deteriorate. When Geoffrey clearly outlined his family’s very strong marketing approach, we thought we might have a chance to sell it quickly and painlessly. And that is exactly what happened!!! Marketing efforts were meticulously orchestrated. The house was listed on MLS on Tuesday; a virtual tour with professional floor plan was posted on their website and others such as Craigslist; an ad with a photo came out in the local newspaper; and photo postcards were dropped in the area. They drew a strong turn out of agents through the property within the first two days, and dozens of appointments were made during Thursday and Friday evenings and on the weekend. By Monday night, less than one week later, we had competing offers including the one we accepted without condition upon financing or home inspection at $30,000 (nearly 8%) above asking! My wife says that she still can’t believe it, as it is like a dream come true. More than anything we appreciate that the sale took place quickly and painlessly. Geoffrey Grace impressed us not only with his dedication to perfection and professionalism, but also with the compassion and understanding that consistently guided his interactions with us. We would highly recommend Geoffrey Grace and his parents, Geoff & Gail, to anyone thinking of selling their home!   Read more

  • Dear Geoffrey, Thank you so very much for everything you have done in helping us find our first home. Words cannot fully explain our gratitude. Other ... agents seemed uninterested in helping us find our first home, but you were eager to assist us. We appreciate the patience and understanding that you demonstrated with us while taking the time to explain and guide us through the whole process of purchasing a home - which we knew nothing about. When I tell my friends everything that you have done for us, they have never heard of an agent that has invested even half the effort that you did for us. You were able to make our dreams come true, in finding a home within our budget when other agents just looked away. For that, we are forever grateful! You have gone well beyond the "extra mile" for us, as I am sure you do for every other client you help. We want to Thank You for making this experience enjoyable and stress free. We would gladly recommend you to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home. THANK YOU GEOFFREY!!!! Read more

  • We used Geoffrey to sell our first home. We were anxious about the process and were lined up to use another agent who was willing ... to reduce their commission to get our business but asked Geoffrey to come by to evaluate our property and get a second opinion. From the moment he walked in the door we could tell that we had found a gem. Geoffrey knows what he's doing and it shows. He presented a compelling marketing plan and an even more compelling sale price for our home (in fact, we thought he was just inflating the price just to get our listing) and he had the experience we needed to make us feel comfortable in trusting him. Geoffrey and his team of cleaners, stagers, photographers, and assistants helped us get our home on the market in less than a week. Geoffrey took the time to keep us informed every step of the way. The entire process with Geoffrey was seamless. Our house was on the market for less than two days when Geoffrey emailed to ask if we were ready for a late night. He already had two offers on our place! We ended up in a bidding situation and sold our home for over asking (and for way more than we ever thought our home was worth). Working with Geoffrey showed us the true value of working with a real estate professional. He's smart, ambitious, has loads of integrity and is a really nice guy. I would urge any of my network to give Geoffrey a call if they were even thinking of selling their home in Leslieville or The Beach. Geoffrey is the kind of guy you want in your corner. Read more

  • Geoffrey represented us in the sale of our home in August 2010 and assisted us in the purchase of our new dream home. He is ... very knowledgeable, detail oriented, trustworthy and went and above the "call of duty" to ensure we were well taken care of. Geoffrey was able to exceed our financial expectations in a slow summer market! Highly recommended. Read more

Meet Geoffrey Grace Geoffrey is social!

Geoffrey was born and raised in Toronto. After attending the University of Western Ontario, he considered joining the Grace team immediately. Geoff and Gail, however, urged him to gain corporate experience with a well-known brand. Geoffrey subsequently pursued a career in marketing.

Knowing he wanted to learn from the best, Geoffrey set his sights on a position with BMW Canada – a brand that had recently been recognized as Marketer of the Year.  By determining who his direct manager would be, he bypassed a long list of applicants that were under consideration for the job. Geoffrey set up a face-to-face interview with the key decision maker, a success that secured his position and taught him a lesson that he regularly brings to the table for his real estate clients: go straight to the individual that can say yes!  After three years of improving and growing the programs to which he was assigned at BMW, Geoffrey had learned two important lessons that he felt would translate to a prosperous career in real estate: how to create value through premium marketing, and how to gain the financial buy-in of stakeholders.

By utilizing his marketing and negotiating skills, intimate knowledge of Toronto, and always putting his clients first, Geoffrey was able to find success early in his real estate sales career.  He was quickly noticed by, and gained the respect of, other Toronto real estate agents.  This positive working relationship with other top producers benefits his clients tremendously when negotiating their real estate purchases and sales.

In addition to coaching hundreds of clients through varying real estate transactions, Geoffrey has the first-hand experiences of being a first-time buyer, a seller, a move-up buyer and most recently, a real estate investor.  His decade of experience servicing clients, combined with his own experiences buying and selling real estate prove a great asset to his clients.

An active member in the community, Geoffrey is a member of the Toronto Hunt Club and Mayfair Clubs.
