About Toronto Loft Boutique
Feel the difference that passion and skill bring.
At the heart of Toronto Loft Boutique is Heikki Walden, his team, and their knowledge and passion for Toronto lofts. Here’s what drives and defines us.
Passionate about lofts.
We are passionate about lofts: loft style, loft design, and loft dwellers! This passion and unique insight into the loft world allows us to have our finger on the pulse of all that the loft-seeker desires. We are inspired by our urban environment and are excited to share the loft-lifestyle with our clients, whether they are interested in purchasing a loft for the first time or selling their loft and searching for a different space to call their own. This passion spills over into everything we do, whether it’s preparing your loft for sale, making sure you have the necessary information to decide if now is the time for you to sell, or helping you make your loft the beautiful space you envisioned upon purchase.
Passionate about loft staging.
Whether highlighting exposed ductwork, taking advantage of soaring ceilings, or simply adding the finishing touches that will catch the eye of anyone longing for the loft lifestyle, our professional loft stager know that working in your suite is not the same as staging a four-bedroom house in the suburbs. Our staging services are specifically geared towards the loft market; we realize that the “typical” staging approach is simply not appropriate for your loft. Other realtors hire stagers who are accustomed to preparing suburban family homes for sale, and then apply these “standard” staging techniques to city lofts. This approach does not work. We recognize that loft-buyers are looking for something different. Something decidedly urban. Something definitively chic, yet approachable. That je ne c’est quoi that makes loft-seekers into loft-dwellers.
Passionate about selling your loft to the right person.
Selling your loft? What if you could get the word out to over one thousand people specifically interested in lofts? People who have expressed a distinct interest in loft-living and are waiting with baited breath for your unit to go on the market? Not only do we have hundreds of loft-buyers in our database, I am pleased to offer a reduced commission rate if I provide the buyer for your property. Working with a loft specialist, such as myself, greatly increases your likelihood of paying a reduced commission.
Skilled at appraising lofts.
I am a former real estate appraiser. I am uniquely equipped, educated, and experienced in the art of appraising unique spaces. I don’t simply “plug” your loft’s square-footage into a calculator and come up with an arbitrary price. We recognize that your neighbourhood, the loft-lifestyle, and a property’s potential are marketable features and are therefore as appraisal-worthy as your unit’s parking space, Scavolini kitchen and number of bedrooms.
Accurate Appraisals = Optimal Price + Fewer Days on the Market = Less Hassle
Passionate about design education.
The loft-lifestyle is enticing because it promises something different; a unique opportunity to engage design in a beautiful yet livable way. Whether you are ready to sell and are interested in improving your loft’s resale value or whether you are simply interested in realizing your design dreams and making your living space your own, we want to help you appreciate and improve your loft. We offer complimentary lunch-and-learn sessions specific to loft design and we are establishing connections with interior design students who are eager to encourage your own sense of style while offering their insight. We are excited to ensure you have all the tools to make your living space look and feel like the loft you have always envisioned.
Passionate about creativity.
Because of our passion for lofts, we do not hesitate to hire professionals every step of the way. We have imaginative professionals on staff including a graphic designer, industrial designer, photographers and writers, ready to help you visualize your property in 2D, 3D, and in the written word – our creative professionals bring your loft to life! Our 360 degree marketing campaigns are never the same twice, and our design-related services ensure that you have the best experience possible selling or simply living in your loft. We can advise you as to what projects and upgrades will increase the resale value of your loft and we have connections with allied tradesmen, such as a handyman who specializes in loft projects. Even if you are not interested in selling your loft, we gladly offer consultations throughout the ownership of your property.
Passionate about our clients.
Our clients are passionate people: artists, musicians, collectors; people who are inspired by creativity and by beautiful spaces. We are passionate about lofts because our clients are passionate about lofts, and we are passionate about our clients! Our clients are taken care of by our client care coordinator, and if you’re looking to buy, our buyer representative will help you find your dream loft.
Passionate about providing information through our Loft Market Reports.
Read all about your suite, your building, and how your unit values in comparison to others in our custom Loft Market Reports. We want you to have all the facts and figures to make an informed decision about selling your loft. We’ve crunched the numbers and have broken it all down for you, creating an easy-to-understand report documenting everything from price per square foot to how your building compares to the rest of your district for both prices and length of time to sell. Regardless of your real estate prowess, you will be able to appreciate and interpret these invaluable reports.
Skilled at assisting you when it counts.
We don’t leave you in the lurch when it comes to property taxes. If you’re making a property tax appeal, we can provide you with a comparison of property tax values from building to building. We would rather see you spend your money on great design and improving your loft than on taxes.
Passionate about communication.
We follow the loft market daily – not just every once in a while. We’re passionate about Toronto lofts, so we know what is happening in the market and we can prove it to you through our detailed reports and analysis. Ask us what’s going on – we will be more than happy to talk with you, or “tweet” it to you, or facebook it to you, or write about it in our blog. We’re flexible, we’re connected.
