Why do you work with the Jay Miller Team?

When I decided to make a career of my passion for Real Estate, I knew that I had to be a part of the team that had helped me and my family with our own Real Estate needs and that had guided us through our most important investment decisions with the utmost of expertise, professionalism, and integrity. I am proud to share this same commitment with my clients every day. And having access to best-in-class systems and marketing programs, along with the power of the Jay Miller brand and the support of a great team, allows me to focus my time on the needs of those that trust me to help them with their own Real Estate investment decisions.


For most of us, buying a home is a once, twice, perhaps thrice in a life-time experience. After considering location, amenities and affordability, we end up in a place where we sleep, eat and make memories with friends and family for years, sometimes decades. Having the right representative and partner in this search is vital. Phil Laxdal was the right partner for me when I was going through the typical empty-nest downsizing to purchase a condo - my second home. Having purchased and sold the house in which my children were raised with indispensable help from Jay Miller, I knew that he would only partner me with the right person on his team. Sure enough, Phil was knowledgeable, patient and thorough. Phil worked with my meandering parameters without a hint of impatience. With every potential listing, he sent me available information as soon as possible, and dug deeper where possible. Every time we went to view an address, Phil went through the premises as if he was buying the home for himself, often pointing out features that I had missed. Patience paid off when one particular condo, far outside my initial geographical zone, made a strong impression on me. It was one of the moments when initial expectations from the listing were matched by in-person experience. When I made the decision to buy right after the viewing, Phil was ready to act promptly and prepared the offer immediately. He worked with the selling agent to acquire all the available information including the condo stat report. He also found a top-notch inspector to give the place a most thorough inspection.


The best feeling you can get from buying a home is the anticipation and excitement counting down to the day of possession. Because of Phil, I am living that experience now with total peace of mind that this is indeed the right second home for me to own. I would recommend Phil Laxdal and the Jay Miller team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Our experience with Phil Laxdal was simply outstanding. My husband and I were looking to downsize and buy a smaller home when we saw an exclusive listing on the Jay Miller Real Estate Brokerage website.  It was exactly what we were looking for.  This hot market even made it more difficult for us because of all of the bidding wars.  But as soon as we saw this home on the Jay Miller Website, we called the office and we were fortunate to be immediately connected with Phil Laxdal.  It was late in the evening, but he took the time to tell us all of the details we needed to know about the home. Early, the next day he showed us the home, at our convenience, even though he was extremely busy with open houses.  We really loved the home and decided to put in an offer that same day.  Phil drove a long distance to meet us to write up the offer, even with two screaming grandchildren in a busy coffee house.  Phil's patience is commendable.  That same day Phil presented the offer and we amazingly became the new owners of this beautiful bungalow.  It was one of the smoothest, most pleasant experiences we have had with a real estate agent in a long time as we have sold and bought homes at least twelve times in our lifetime.  Phil was outstanding in terms of his ability to make this happen for us.  We simply could not have done this without Phil and the Jay Miller team.  Phil has won us over with his professionalism, expertise, kindness, and honesty.  He will definitely be our Realtor for life and we will be recommending him to all of our family and friends.  Again, thank you Phil Laxdal.  for making a stressful experience of buying a home so enjoyable and memorable for us.

We have worked with a number of good realtors through the years, but we both agree that Phil exceeded our expectations in every way.  Throughout the whole sale process, from the initial evaluation until well after closing, Phil was always calm, responsive and helpful and we always felt confident that he was watching out for our best interests.  Phil went over and above in supporting us during the showing period, as we were away from home at the time, and he kept us updated regularly so we always felt in control of the process.  We were particularly impressed with the work that went on behind the scenes to make sure that we had as many offers as possible. We feel that it was due to Phil's diligence and hard-work that we were able to sell our house for our target price. We whole-heartedly recommend Phil and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

My husband and I chose to list our home this summer with Jay Miller Real Estate, because we felt they best understood the market in York Region, and came highly recommended. We were thoroughly impressed with the quality, professionalism and assistance we received from the entire Jay Miller team throughout this experience from the house staging, to the photography. Most of all, we were impressed with Phil Laxdal, who assisted us with the selling of our home. Selling a home can be an extremely stressful time, but Phil made the experience as seamless as possible. It didn’t matter if it was midnight, or 7am- Phil was always on top of correspondence and would bend over backwards to meet our needs. Phil was phenomenal at answering our (many!) questions, and provided us with guidance and support. We highly recommend Phil to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a home. We are thankful for the opportunity to have worked alongside him during this experience.
