Remember, all of our knowledge, experience, and expertise comes FREE of charge to you, our Realtors and staff are 100% here to help.

At TrilliumWest, we have a process designed just for you - the first-time homebuyer looking in Guelph.

Here is how it all works:

Getting comfortable

  • We invite you into the brand new TWStore for a relaxed chat to assess your needs. It all starts with a true understanding of who you are and what your needs are.
  • Everything a first-time buyer could ever need is available at TWStore - information on all of the re-sale homes in around Guelph, details and print packages on 100's of new homes & condos, financing options & resources, seminars & reference materials, amazing free coffee (yes free) and always staffed by trained Realtors who love to help first-time purchasers get the right information.
  • After careful discussion regarding your individual needs, it's time to sit back in one of our comfy living rooms and begin to examine what properties are available both on and off of the MLS system.
  • If it's a new home you want, we have you covered. Yes, we have all of the builder packages you will need in our New Home Sales Centre.
  • We can help discuss your financing, if needed our in-house RBC mortgage specialists are there to help.
  • The ultimate goal of the first meeting is to inform you on the entire process and answer any questions you might have in an informal setting. Honestly, ask away, it is our job to help the best we can.

The search begins

  • Once we have established a solid understanding of what your needs are, now its time to go to work and find that perfect home.
  • We will setup a direct link between yourself and the local MLS system. Think of it as a backdoor into a world typically only accessible to Realtors.
  • We open lines of communication within our office and inside the local real estate community to work on finding that perfect property. Even if the property isn’t on the MLS system, we do our very best to find it.
  • We view as many homes as necessary to get you comfortable with the Guelph market. Education comes first.
  • A full review of all the required paperwork typically will happen during your home search to have everyone fully prepared for the offer process.
  • We discuss current value in particular neighbourhoods, the future value, the influencers of value and we always look at the data. It can sound a bit complicated, but everything will be explained to you properly and all questions will be answered.

And then … along comes the right one

  • Eventually, you walk through the front door of your perfect place to call home. We view it together, we fall in love and we decide to prepare an offer!
  • We walk you step-by-step through the whole process, ensuring you are comfortable with the entire strategy and that the appropriate conditions are inserted in your contract to protect you.
  • We are very careful to temper the excitement level and keep our focus on the facts during the conditional period. Home inspections, financing, insurance and any further negotiations will require careful attention to detail.
