"I recently decided to sell my house, and having gone through the process of selling and buying twice before, I had a good idea of what I needed from an agent.
I am very lucky to have met Clive and am pleased and grateful for the assistance and support he provided during what can often be a very stressful experience. I had very little time to get my house ready for market, and this was made more challenging by the fact that I was unable to take much time off work. Clive did his research and explained options and reasoning so that I could make informed decisions. He helped me get my house ready for sale, providing updates and the occasional reality check (smile), all the while listening to my concerns. He was patient, focused and flexible - the logistics involved in selling when there is a dog living in the house require a sense of humour, which Clive has.
My house sold well and I am thrilled with the results. I am grateful to Clive for his assistance and am impressed by his work ethic and commitment to the job. I can definitely say that his efforts went above and beyond.

"I am extremely happy with the recent sale of my house. Clive worked harder than any agent I’ve used in the past. I live out of town so wasn’t able to be hands on but he worked diligently to ensure the property was ready for sale. Clive demonstrated unusual integrity when he recommended that we don't lower the price again because he was convinced of it’s value. We took it off the market and about a year later I listed it again with Clive and it sold for well over asking.

"I had the pleasure of working with Clive to sell a condo and also to purchase a house. When selling my condo, Clive helped me prepare it to show well, while also discouraging unnecessary expenditures. The condo sold quickly and we set a record for the sales price in my building. There were some unanticipated challenges at the time of closing, and Clive was the man who saved the day! During the process of house hunting, Clive was incredibly patient and determined to find the right house for me. This made house hunting an enjoyable experience and indeed we found the perfect home. I would recommend Clive to anyone buying or selling a home and personally couldn't imagine working with anyone else."
"Having dealt with other agents before, I feel very fortunate to have worked with Clive for the purchase of my new Condo. He provided an exceptional level of service going the extra mile to thoroughly research and investigate potential properties. I was properly informed of all the details that required my consideration so I could be confident with my decisions. I would highly recommend Clive to anyone buying or selling a home!"
- Heather Jim
" It was an absolute pleasure having Clive as our real estate agent. I definitely recommend his services. Clive is professional, knowledgeable, patient, and a great negotiator. He took the time to help us determine what area we wanted to live in and what we could and could not live with. He made one of the biggest decisions in our life easy and fun! We were first time home owners and he helped us find our perfect home. Thank you Clive! "

"The sale of a house can be a daunting task, but Clive made the whole process seamless. From establishing the property’s market value, to assisting us in getting the house in tip top shape for showings, organizing the actual showings and then getting down to the final offer, Clive was with us every step of the way, making the sale of our house an enjoyable experience.
There is one thing that I must point out that really does set Clive above other listing agents, his marketing efforts and results are truly second to none. Clive really put forth a lot of time and effort to drive as many people to our listing as possible. We were astonished with the quality of the marketing materials and with the traffic Clive brought to our listing.
We were also concerned about how our tenant would feel about the sale process, Clive did an amazing job communicating with our tenant and co-ordinating a schedule that left all parties content.
Clive made the whole process easy and fun and got us above the asking price,
it was a pleasure working with him

"My wife and I live overseas and had purchsed a home in Toronto with Clive in 2009. To make a long story short we had a tenant who owed more than 9 months rent in 2013 and would not leave. Clive some how managed to befriend the tenant once I had decide to sell the house and convience him to leave the property saving me alot of lawyers fee's and successfully selling the house for over asking. I would recommend Clive to anyone. Cheers!"

"Little Italy 2012 The day I met Clive McLean, Bosley Real Estate Ltd., was the beginning of a wonderful
experience to sell 486 Markham Street, Toronto, On.
Clive's Marketing ability came to me threw our mail box. I was so impressed that I
called him immediately to come over to the house to give us an evaluation on the
house. We were not sure whether we wanted to sell at that moment.
Clive gave us a presentation of his past work, excellent comparisons and
literally, took us to comparable houses in our district. We did not feel
pressured in any way.
With Clive's calm nature, the house was listed and sold in one week.
Clive made all the arrangements, i.e. Staging, Marketing. We did not
have to do anything. Clive constantly communicated with us. His
advice was exceedingly valuable.
Ethically, Clive was a joy to work with and I would recommend having
Clive as my Real Estate Representative and Mentor any day.
I write this with sincere thanks to Clive McLean.

"It turned into an enjoyable experience once we hooked up with Clive. I have found it very difficult to believe most salepersons as they have a terrible reputation for exaggeration and their primary interest is to get your signature. Clive is on the other hand a true professional, honest and an expert who does not try and fool anyone and his word is gold. I trust Clive's judgment and his dedication to completing a sale is extraordinary. He deserves his reputation as a top saleperson and i would recommend him to any family or friends. Thanks. "

"Clive was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the beginning, I was impressed by his conscientiousness, his perserverance and his knowledge of the market. He assessed my needs and worked hard to find a condo that was right for me. What I most appreciated was his willingness to view all properties before showing them to me, thus saving me unnecessary visits. As a working woman, I found this service invaluable. When it came to negotiating the deal, he worked hard on my behalf, never pressuring me to do anything that wasn't right for me, while providing invaluable information to guide the way. I would unreservedly recommend Clive to anyone--buyer or seller--as a consummate professional, and overall great guy! "
- Brigitte Waisberg
"Working with Clive was a very affable and positive experience. He was exceptionally considerate of my goals and had a keen ability to find a home that suited my lifestyle and comfort.

I am very pleased to have worked with Clive and would highly recommend his services to any friends, family or colleagues."

"I have never used a realtor in life. However, about two months ago, I decided to sell my loft located downtown. I was able to get some information on recent sales in my building and there were a few realtors available to me in the report to choose from. I actually contacted one or two of these realtors and I just didn't get a good feeling about them. I then decided to contact Clive and right from the moment I engaged in a conversation with him, Clive made me feel comfortable about my decision to sell my loft. I was renting my loft at that time and Clive was able to develop a relationship with my tenant that allowed him to show the loft to a lot of people over a five day period and my tenant was very co-operative all because of Clives' approach and professionalism. At the end of the day, there were multiple bids on my loft and I was able to get way more than the asking price on my loft. I am so happy that I chose Clive to be my selling agent and I would recommend him to anyone who is planning to sell or buy. He truly goes the extra mile to ensure you get the most for your place. He does his research on the area and similar properties to determine how he can market your property. Clive, I just want to say THANK YOU for your exceptional service. You made my first experience with a realtor very pleasant and enjoyable."

"My wife and I sought Clive out because of his reputation in our community and track record for sales.
He met with us promptly at our home with a complete and thorough market analysis.
His assessment of our property was excellent and he demonstrated a courteous and professional demeanour from the outset of our relationship.
Within days of hiring Clive he had prepared flyers and online advertisements that were beyond expectations.
His manner with clients and realtors was truly the best we have seen. His knowledge of the neighbourhood and the time he took to learn the details of our house were very important components of the successful sale of the house.
Clive sold our house in five days at 99% of asking and led us through every step of the selling process.
We would recommend Clive to anyone without reservation. He is the best realtor we have worked with and consider ourselves lucky to have retained his services for our sale.
"I came across Clive from a quick internet search. I must say I wish we would had used an agent when we first moved to Toronto in 2009. Clive's help and confidence made this transition so simple and stress free. We finally feel we can call Toronto our home since finding this lovely home. Clive did an amazing job and we would recommend him to family and friends.
"Parkdale 2010: Selling property can be a stressful process, but Clive mitigated that incredibly effectively. My wife and I were always in great hands with Clive, who is thoroughly professional, trustworthy and a personally a pleasure to deal with.
Going into our search for a real estate agent my wife and I had a lot of criteria. We talked to a number of people in our building who had bought or sold in the last few years and they all recommended Clive.
Thus we approached him with high expectations, and an additional challenge: my wife and I needed to sell our Toronto condo remotely, from our new home in New York city.
This is where Clive really impressed us. Our condo was not a typical sale. He superbly handled every aspect of the preparation and sale of the condo - managing the relationship with our tenants, making sure it was ready for the open house, finding a buyer and negotiating a great deal. Even after the sale Clive was extremely careful to ensure a smooth transition for all, he liaised with our lawyer, tenant, buyer and was our all-around representative in Toronto. "
- Adam Clarkson
"Clive we just wanted to say thank you for all your help and understanding with us as first time home buyers. It was absolutely amazing working with you and knowing that we got all our questions answered. Thank you so much for everything."
- David Pattinson
"Roncesvalles: 2011 Working with Clive through both the buying and selling process was fantastic. His negotiation skill was invaluable at both ends of the deal.
His knowledge of the loft market is second to none, he was able to find us exactly what we were looking for, and then market our property to maximize profit.
I would highly recommend him for any and all real estate needs. "
