As a first-time homebuyer, I found Alan helpful and supportive. I always felt that he was on my side, giving good advice, patiently helping me to weigh the options and arrive at the right decisions. His strategic assistance in the bidding process was very valuable. I would highly recommend him.
Alan is a wonderful person to work with. I trust him implicitly when it comes to real estate and would recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase, rent, lease or sell a property in the Toronto area. He is extremely personable and very knowledgeable and really cares about his clients and their needs. Alan is a true professional.
Alan is a passionate professional with full of energy. Alan provided us with best options to advertise our house at the market. He kept us informed through out the process timely and effectively. We are very pleased with his work ethics and professionalism.
I was looking to buy my first home and Alan was recommended to me by a friend as someone who is very good with first time buyers. She was right. He took time to really understand what I wanted, and be sure I understood every part of the process from the beginning. Along the way he always had time to answer my questions and give solid advice based on his experience, regardless of whether or not it meant a sale for him. That's why I managed to buy the house that I fell in love with, and why, eight years later, I hired him again to sell it for me. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Alan found me my dream home! He worked tirelessly, and was very patient and positive. Without him, I never would have found the home I dreamed about (and then some)! Very highly recommended. I will certainly tell anyone who is looking for their dream home to contact Alan:)
As an Internet professional, I sought an agent who included Internet marketing as part of their tool kit for sellers. What I got from Alan was that and a whole lot more.
Alan built a comprehensive online and offline marketing blitz to sell my property. Offline, he placed newspaper ads, distributed high-quality flyers, and held an agent open house. Online, he bought highly trafficked keywords on major search engines, provided quality virtual tours and photos of my property, and listed it on multiple websites for maximum exposure.
The results: My condo unit in Toronto sold above asking price with multiple offers in 1 week! Incredible results in a building that typically sees unit sales take 30-60 days for below asking. This can only happen when you have an agent who “gets it!”
Alan shows all the characteristics of what a great agent should be. He is honest, savvy, prompt, reliable, and above all: results-oriented.
I can’t wait to call on him again in the future! Thanks Alan!
We cannot say enough great things about Alan.
We found that Alan always has our best interest ahead of his own. He is very professional, honest, and straight forward.
Alan was tremendously instrumental in our sale in King City, and our purchase of Toronto Real Estate.

I worked with Alan on my first home purchase. He was very helpful in explaining the details of the process in an easy-to-understand manner. Alan responded to my questions and information requests promptly. His professionalism, knowledge about the market and sense of humour made the home-buying experience an enjoyable one for me. Thanks, Alan!
Before my recent retirement I was Training Director for Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal in the Massachusetts State Department of Revenue, Real Estate Tax Division in the U.S.A. Since then I have met and used Alan Read-Chua as a personal real estate agent in Toronto.
Alan is an outstanding example of what a good professional real estate agent should be. He is honest, accurate, fair and prompt in all his business dealings. Beyond that I found him to be completely and unquestionably trustworthy.
He is very good at making a quick study of what his customers want and then sizing up what the current real estate market has to offer. He accomplishes in hours what I have seen other professionals take days to accomplish. Even though coming into the business recently from the financial markets field he already knows the real estate business as thoroughly as many agents who have been learning the business for ten years or more. As the Australians would phrase it; Alan “is spot on” in what he does for his customers.
When my wife, a Canadian citizen, and I move permanently to Toronto sometime during the next couple of years, Alan Read-Chua will be the agent we look to for finding our new home.

We would not have found our wonderful new condo in Toronto without Alan. Being based in Cincinnati, Ohio, meant that we had to do most of our home hunting over the internet. Right from the start, Alan worked tirelessly to find exactly what we were looking for. He guided us through the process; helping us to select the right neighbourhood, sending us pictures of condo interiors, and even hosting us during a visit to Toronto. We were so glad that Alan was there, working for us. Thanks for helping us find our new home, Alan!
When a colleague tried to get me to meet their real estate agent, I told him I already had an agent that I was loyal to. My colleague commented - ‘I thought loyalty doesn't exist anymore’. If that’s the case, shouldn’t you be asking ‘Who is this guy and when can I meet him’? I replied.
Alan was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was extremely patient which meant a lot, considering we were first time buyers and new to Toronto. He was always positive and helped us to maintain that same attitude. While house hunting can sometimes be a chore – it was fun with Alan. He is honest, approachable, and realistic and never rushed us or pressured us to make a decision. I would look forward to working with Alan again in the future and recommend his services without hesitation.
I have hired Alan Read-Chua on four occasions and would highly recommend him as a broker. He's particularly skilled at dealing with first-time buyers...making them feel comfortable and educating them about the often-daunting real estate process. I've also recommended Alan to several people who have been just as pleased with his work. Alan always arrives with a smile and a plan -- and you always know he has your best interests in mind.
To work with Alan in itself is a privilege. He is one of the nicest persons i have come accross in Canada. Alan is dedicated to his work and extremely kind and patient with his clients. Besides he is extremely honest and trustworthy.He purchased two apartments for us downtown Toronto and we were totally satisfied and happy.I will always be too happy to call him when ever i am looking to buy a property.
Working with Alan was a charm, stress-free experience, He made us feel part of the family from the get-go. I only need to sell/buy another house to use his services again.
We would like to thank you for having helped us find a new home in Toronto.
We expected looking for a Waterfront Condominium to meet our criteria given our time limitations to be a potentially frustrating endeavour. You were miraculously able to turn it into a pleasant, most rewarding experience.
You were extremely efficient, professional and cooperative. We especially appreciated your understanding attitude towards our priorities and your patience in finding a way to work around them.
We will definitely want to work with you again and we would recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in Toronto.

After interviewing several agents, we decided that we should go with Alan Read-Chua: even before we became his clients he welcomed our questions as first-time sellers and made us feel comfortable about working with him. Needless to say we were not disappointed with our choice!
Within a week of our condo going on the MLS we had over a dozen showings! Our open house was probably the busiest our codo building has even seen, due in no small part to Alan's marketing strategy. In addition to ensuring our listing was on several web sites with beautiful photos and a virtual tour, he distributed flyers throughout our neighborhood to get the word out.
While other units in our building had been on the market for several weeks, we received multiple offers for ours after only one week! Thanks to Alan we not only met but exceeded our list price!
We would not hesitate to recommend Alan's services to our family and friends. His interest in doing the best for his clients is evident in everything he does. He kept us informed every step of the way and made the process an extremely enjoyable one. We cannot thank Alan enough for all he has done for us!

I highly recommend Alan to anyone buying a home! As a first-time buyer I was very nervous and found the searching/buying process intimidating. Alan explained everything clearly, answered all my neophyte questions, and maintained high standards of professionalism and integrity, while also making the process enjoyable. I was able to find a home I love in Toronto. Thanks, Alan!
Alan helped us to find our first home in Toronto. He was always accessible and knowledgable, and took our needs into account. He provided valuable information and made every step of the home-buying process easy and enjoyable. We really enjoyed working with him, and appreciate all of his help.
Thank you, Alan!
I have had the pleasure of both listing and purchasing a Condo in Toronto through Alan. When he sold my place he worked diligently to get it sold at a price higher than any other comparable unit in the building. He was definitely a Seller's Agent. When it came time to buy my new home I personally witnessed Alan switching gears and becoming a professional Buyer's Agent determined to get me the best price possible. The thing that impressed me most about Alan was that his focus was constantly on what was best for me. I was confident that he didn't even think about how much commission would be generated for him it was clear to me that he thrives on doing the right thing for people. I guess that is ultimately why he is so successful.
Alan's professionalism and diligence helped me find a wonderful condominium in a great area of Toronto. His sense of humour and take charge attitude made, what can be a trying experience at the best of times, a successful and smooth transaction. Alan's knowledge of the market and the rules and regulations around condominium purchases in Toronto was invaluable in helping me land the home of my dreams. Alan helped make it happen!
