Welcome to The Caplan Team web site. You will find a great deal of helpful information about real estate. Working together with our clients means your needs, wants, and priorities are our focus. Of course, one of the reasons we publish this web site is so that you will consider us when you need assistance in real estate. So while you are more important than we are, here is a little bit about us.
Judi Caplan is a Real Estate Broker working with Coldwell Banker Pinnacle Real Estate, Brokerage. She is ably assisted by Elke Meiritz. Elke's extensive experience in customer service and administration helps our team give you the best in service.
Judi's husband Marvin is the Broker of Record of A La Carte Real Estate, Brokerage(www.alcreb.ca). We are able to assist you with almost any real estate need. Experienced in residential, commercial and investment properties in the greater Hamilton area, Judi has helped sellers and buyers throughout the boundaries of the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB)*.
With the increasing popularity of the condominium lifestyle, few real estate representatives bring to their clients the same breadth of experience in buying and marketing Condominiums.
Like most people we are proud of our accomplishments. JUDI CAPLAN has in the past attained the coveted "President's Circle", "Diamond" and "Sterling" level designations recognizing her high achievement in service and sales in the real estate industry and Coldwell Banker. She has also been awarded the Ultimate Service® Award by her Brokerage.
JUDI CAPLAN has been awarded the designation of Accredited Staging Professional® (ASP®). She has successfully completed a detailed course and passed a thorough examination on preparing homes for sale. As well she has attained the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR) designations.
Homes that are staged, or prepared for sale, by an Accredited Staging Professional look better than other homes on the market by being clean, clutter-free, and ready to show to prospective buyers. Staged homes traditionally sell faster and/or for more money in today’s real estate market. The ASP® designation is a benchmark of true excellence in customer service for home sellers. JUDI CAPLAN is dedicated to the principles and practices of Staging® and the many benefits this service will bring to her clients. The combination of selling and staging skills will provide you with someone who is able to help sell your home for the most money in the shortest period of time.
As believers in life-long learning, the Caplan Team continually upgrade their skills and knowledge to better serve their clients.
When you select a real estate Broker to assist in a transaction as significant as purchasing or selling a home, or real estate investment - choose your representative with care. We are quite happy to be interviewed before their prospective clients select the representative they work with.
The Caplan team believes that for most customers full service real estate representation is the best option. But, they also believe that you should be able to choose the level of service you want. So they also work with a Fee for Service company, A La CarteReal Estate, Brokerage. This service allows home sellers to list their homes privately or do some of the marketing themselves, while using the Multiple Listing Service MLS®. See the A La Carte website to learn more.
While A La Carte - fee for service has the potential to aid "For Sale By Owner" (FSBO) clients, the process of selling property can be fraught with difficulty. In most situations the Caplan Team believes the Coldwell Banker Ultimate Service® program is the best way to buy or sell any residential property. (The unique Ultimate Service program is more fully described elsewhere on this site.) In the section marked information for Buyers / Sellers some of the many difficulties are outlined.
If you are looking for a Realtor® that will go the extra mile, call JUDI at 905 522 1110 or toll free at 1-877-935-1110 or email her at mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org. You won’t be disappointed!
