I have had the pleasure of working alongside Keisha Telfer to list my condo for rent in 2019. To say that Keisha over-delivered is an understatement.
Firstly, I would like to attest to how she aligned herself to my needs as an owner. There was an existing tenant on the premises and her efforts to coordinate appointments at a time that was mutually beneficial to the incumbent tenant and any prospective tenants resulted in an easy transition for all parties. I didn’t have to lift a finger.
Then, when it came to vetting new tenants Keisha provided excellent advice and even met with candidates, giving me her assessment of their suitability before I met with them directly, to make the final decision. Once again, her efforts resulted in less effort for me.
Finally, there was a space of 3 days between the old tenant moving out and the new tenants moving in. Keisha personally arranged for contractors to make much needed repairs and improvements and for cleaners to make the unit move-in-ready, just in time for the new tenants to move in. The contractors and cleaners she recommended did great work, leaving me with nothing to worry about.
Keisha was on-hand whenever I needed her. She organized all paperwork, and represented me very well with the new tenants. Her demeanor with the old and the new tenants was charming and professional and I can honestly say it was an absolute pleasure to work with her.
If you are either a tenant or a landlord who is looking for a strategic minded, organized, professional and friendly agent to represent your real estate needs, I can wholeheartedly recommend Keisha Telfer to represent you. You will not be disappointed.

Having moved to Canada just over a year when I was introduced to Keisha. I was having housing market nightmares while trying to make it in Toronto/GTA on a single income with rising rental prices and multiple offers being made per listing.
Keisha was referred to me to assist with my housing search we had our initial introduction over the phone where we discussed my requirements. House hunting is no fun and having travelled the world for work and dealing with multiple agents to find accommodation, the Keisha Telfer experience was the most enjoyable and will definitely be having her as my agent for any other housing deals I wish to pursue.
Despite specializing in the Toronto and Mississauga market she was able to land me my nice home in Hamilton. I am thankful for Keisha and if you really want an agent that cares and to enjoy the home finding process then having Keisha Telfer as an agent is not just the right choice.
Details of the process
Keisha also briefed me on the process, honestly having dealt with other realtors before, I was not keen on working with one but I have no regrets as Keisha’s approach was not to just get me in and out the door but always said after each viewing “if you do not feel comfortable in it, do not take it. We can continue to search.” At many times I lost interest in the search due to the disappointments arising from landlords/agents, however with the enthusiasm Keisha has, we chatted and decided to be more passive about my search. It was a gruelling few months as the rental market at the time was highly active with students also seeking accommodation and landlords having at times 10 offers at least to review.
I eventually decided to consider a house purchase and first step was the preapproval. Keisha connected me with a mortgage specialist and a mortgage broker. She is well connected in the market and was able to make meaningful links. She provided me with a home buyers guide (now featured on the website, it is a must read document and you should review it even if not looking at a house purchase right now.) she also assisted in locating a home inspector and electrician once I decided which house I would take.
My friend saw the dedication Keisha has in making sure the client is happy. He said to me “you have a really great agent. She is doing more than an agent has to. He also stated he wished he had someone like Keisha when he was doing his house hunt.
I must admit being a home owner within 2 years of moving to Canada would not have been possible without the dedication, hard work and compassion Keisha has. Keisha genuinely cared about my requirements and her only interest was making sure those requirements were met and I was happy.
